Picked up our new RDX this week from Kendall Acura in Eugene, Oregon..........great group of folks.
With my wife following me in her TSX as a chase car, we left Eugene and headed back to Hood River, about 170 miles.
Very pleased with the mileage. 27.0 MPG over 170 miles of Willamette Valley and Columbia Gorge freeway cruising at 68-72 MPH. This includes an hour of stop and go over a 5 mile stretch. My average before we hit the traffic backup was 28.4.
Took Mama for her first shake down certification run today. She is in love. The new RDX, has a super combination of attributes........Acura finally got it right!!
She let me drive back from the store and I couldn't resist just one short, irresponsible mashing of the throttle. Like our buddies from the South would say, "I'll tell you what now", this guy has some testicles!!!
I'm pretty familiar with cars that are zippy after owning a
356SC Porche, an Integra GSR, and an RSX.....but the combination of thrust and the incredible SOUND of the engine as it woke up when I stomp it at 25-30 MPH sent "tingles down my leg".
This may be Mama's car but I'm going to be offering to run errands more often.
