Just turned 5,000 miles on the 2019 AWD Gunmetal Advance. I've had each generation RDX and I really like this car. Other than a dash rattle they fixed easily I've had none of the issues others have...

Is it accurate to say ‘most’ are having problems? What data support that? Maybe ‘lots’ would be accurate. What constitutes a problem? A good friend of mine also has an Advance AWD. She complained to...

I also must have gotten the pick of the litter. My AWD Advance has been almost perfect. It's a thrill to hop behind the wheel every day. Too many pluses to list to be honest. Great car. I'd buy again...

be sure to smell the oil from a few other new cars at the dealer. Thatís how I learned the smell of my oil was normal. It may be an issue of the breakin oil smell.

I donít know how you extract the dealer blew it off. Based on this thread, I checked and thought I smelled gasoline in my oil. But at the dealer, that was debunked as my sniffer tested other new cars...

I’ve owned BMW, several Audi, and several Acuras. By my preference, Acura seats win going away. And the 2019 RDX continues the trend.

I just went with the Advance SH-AWD. Too many niceties to pass on it. Tech is a great car for sure. But I had (still have--new RDX isn't here yet) a 2016 Advance AWD. I like the extras.

IMHO the ELS is outstanding. I like it better than the Bang & Olufsen in my Q5. The 2019 RDX should be even better with the new speaker locations and likely enhanced sound.

Some dealers are terrible at playing with air pressure--for various reasons. I've picked up new cars with as much as eight pounds of air pressure variance among the four tires.
