Senior editor Ron Kiino, following a trip to San Francisco, finds the "RDX lacks what many other SUVs offer-lots of cubbies and cupholders for front passengers. There are only two cupholders in the center console and one map pocket and small storage bin per front door. Many SUVs offer an additional cupholder in the door, which frees up the center-console cupholder for other stuff as well as more trays or bins in the center console that are useful for phones, keys, and other kit."
Kiino appreciates the Acura's "huge, concealed two-tier center console compartment," but observes that "you can get to it only by opening the lid, which doesn't make it especially user-friendly for stuff you want easy access to." With just under 19,000 miles on the odo, the RDX visited Acura 101 West in Calabasas for its third service, a $233.68 job that included an oil change, tire rotation, inspection, and replacement of rear differential fluid.
