I spoke to the sales manager. After initially declining to do anything for me, at which point I told him I had bought 4 cars from another of their dealerships, and had bought my last from them, he called back an hour later and said the American Honda rep was in and agreed to pay for it.

#2705 of 2736 2008 RDX Strut Replacement
Oct 28, 2008 (1:45 pm)
My wife drives a 2008 RDX w/ Tech Package. The car has 9000 miles on it. From the very first day, we noticed a constant knocking sound from the rear. When we finally found the time to take it into the dealer, they said the rear driver-side strut was working ok, but was making a noise and needed replacement. Has anyone else encountered this problem? What was your course of action?
Thanks in advance for all answers!

I've had bad struts before... If your car is that new, it should be covered under warranty, right?
If so, let them replace it.. Struts last a long time, any more.. Having one new one isn't going to throw anything off..

Bad struts in a new car?
I understand how struts work and that they last a long time, but was curious about other instances in such new cars....again, thanks for your insight about the warranty replacement! Take it easy....

TomTom XL330S is what we picked up and it has just been awesome, no issues at all.
ON another note tommorrow I will be doing a deal on a 2007 RDX base in mint shape only 11K miles on it, I am looking forward to it feel we got a great deal here in Coquitlam BC Canada. I am just hoping I get decent gas mileage some of the #'s I have seen are scary I would have got the 07 SE Murano I was trying to pick first but the deal just was not good enough Acura really went the extra mile to get my business...

You can only get "decent" FE from a turbo engine if you LOVE being a "boy-racer", 0-60, type. The RDX and CX-7 engines are so severely derated during normal non-boost operation that it is impossible to attain a reasonable level of FE vs a non-turbo 4 cylinder engine of equivalent size.
In order to get the turbo to spool up quickly the engine must put LOTS of WASTE ENERGY into the exhaust manifold at the low end. Additionally in order to take full advantage of the BOOST the native compression ratio of the engine must be lowered.
Both of those design effects result in HORRIBLY poor FE at normal highway cruising speeds.
#2710 of 2736 Acura RDX Warranty Question
Dec 23, 2008 (10:19 am)
Some of the plastic pieces on my passenger side air vent broke (the thing that directs the air).
Any idea if this is covered by the warranty? And will Acura fix for free?
I have a 2008 RDX Base Model on lease

I doubt it - something must have hit it, causing the damage.
#2712 of 2736 Acura RDX Key FOB Battery
Jan 01, 2009 (6:57 am)
Does anyone know how to change the battery in the key fob for a 2008 RDX?
I toko the key fob apart (unscrewing the one screw), but when I popped it open, I did not see the battery.
Any help would be great.
