I wanted to be in this car for a little while before reviewing it. After 3 months and 6,500 miles, I still look forward to that hour plus to work every morning ... 'cause it means I'll get to do it again to get back home! To me, because of the long commute, comfort and premium sound were key. I do not find the ride "too" stiff - but everyone's perception of stiff will be different. Yes, if you take it off road, you'll feel the bumps. I would recommend something more like a Jeep for that - keep the Acura in the garage on "dirt road" day. I typically find myself on paved roads here in the industrialized USA and when I do, I LOVE this car! I also have a 2004 Ford Explorer - that might go "off road" if I was so inclined, but I feel the bumps in that too... Factor in the RDX's sound system that will blow you away with deep lows and crisp highs and a turbo that will have you easily passing highway traffic... long before you leave the entrance ramp... And when the digital clarity of the XM sat radio is cranked up, or a DVD audio disc (these are great! but there aren't a lot of them around) I know I won't miss a phone call - the bluetooth connection is seamless and flawless. It mutes the radio and tells me I have an incoming call. I just hit a button on the steering wheel to converse, and hit it again to bring the 10 speaker sound system back to life right where I left it. Seat is very comfortable, there's plenty of back seat leg room but not a ton of cargo space. This is my commuter vehicle, so I don't need much back there anyway. Now that it's getting cold, I find it even harder to get out of the perfectly comfort controlled cabin at the end of a long ride. I don't use the voice commands as much as I thought I would, the novelty wears off. It's usually easier and faster to push the button. There are times, though, it's nice to tell the car what to do.
I wanted a sports car this time, but my wife wanted our second vehicle to be a 4 door SUV for transporting the kids - we both made out better than we expected with the RDX.
