In general is a goos SUV but I bought two months ago and front bumper paint is peeling out completely call the dealer said I have to pay cause is the front bumper worst service ever.

Comfortable ride on shirt or long trips.

As a senior citizen, One reason I purchased this vehicle was because of the ease of getting into and out of the vehicle. I am pleased with the ease of handling and the smooth ride.

Spacious, well equipped luxury SUV

by BerylCop from Myerstown, PA | May 05, 2021

Purchased the RDX SH AWD Tech Package after extensive online and first-hand review of Nissan Murano, Honda Passport and Volvo XC 40. Found that the comfort, styling (externally and internally), performance and handling and price with options offered as standard provided the best in the vehicles we had considered. Not a fan of the idle-stop feature, however that can be turned off. The infotainment feature does take time to acclimate use, however, access to the passenger and driver is very handy. Another great feature is the the ELS Studio Premium Audio System with 12 speakers that is standard on the Tech Package.
