Are you kidding? Look how much money they dumped into the '09 RL refresh despite its ability to rust on the showroom floor (except for the '05 car.) The RDX will definitely be back for a second...

Those are the two revisions I was hoping for for the '09 model year. I would hold out for an '09 if they do, but I wish they would announce what they're doing because the lease rates are really good...
