    Honda: "WTF, did you see that? The rear wheels are turning... hmm pull it off the market, it could be unsafe, and send a memo to R&D. I want to know how that's possible"

    Honda = FWD = less drive train power loss = better MPG = better daily driver = not ment to be a sports car = welcome to honda.

    Thankfully honda is dipping its hand into AWD now.

    RL and RDX for da win!

    too bad the RDX is a cross between a MDX and a civic. it has a cool look to it (mdx side) but feels so friggin cheap. (hello civic)
    plus for the size the power isnt really there.

    The insides look nice but it's made out of shit plastic and such. IMO it should have been a honda not an Acura.
