Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com felt the 2008 Acura RDX's comfort and quality exceeded the price tag that comes with it--but that doesn't mean everyone is completely happy.

Behind the wheel of the 2008 Acura RDX, reviewers felt right at home. Auto Spectator felt the front seats provided "high outward visibility" and a "confident field of view." MyRide.com also likes the seating in the Acura; 2008’s Acura boasts "sturdy seats [that] hold occupants nicely," and the driver's seat, with "an eight-way power unit with lumbar and heating, is superb."

Cars.com notes that "compared to other SUVs...the RDX's cargo area is right up there with the best." ConsumerGuide also mentions that "large door pockets and clever door armrest bins offer plenty of small-item storage." Completing the effective storage design is "a huge center console that's big enough to swallow a laptop computer," according to Kelley Blue Book.

Reviewers aren't as impressed with the 2008 Acura RDX from the backseat. Kelley Blue Book stays optimistic by saying the backseat is "cozy without being cramped." MyRide.com takes a more pessimistic viewpoint, calling the rear passenger seats "leftovers--a four-way manual job with heat and no lumbar support."

ForbesAuto found the drive to be "a bit noisy on the front-passenger side." ConsumerGuide also brings up noise, claiming the "tires are noisy even on smooth asphalt."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
