Consumer Reports does NOT like the true touch interface. It has been getting mixed reviews but most people who have used it for more than a few days seem to really like it.

Give that CR apparently still canít figure out the push button transmission even though it debuted in freaking 2014 they are never going to like the True Touchpad interface.

I canceled my subscription to Consumer Reports years ago after having terrible experiences with multiple products that they recommended or rated highly.

I've owned dozens of vehicles in my life and driven countless others from models that didn't even have power brakes to models that drive themselves and everything in between.

While Consumer Reports is certainly entitled to their opinion and I'm entitled to mine, I cannot fathom how they concluded that the RDX's infotainment system is confusing, distracting, and one of the worst systems they've encountered. Is their baseline an old Philco AM radio with two knobs? I had read a little about how the system worked before I bought my RDX, but had never used it. My first, hands-on experience was on the drive home from the dealer. Admittedly, the system was a bit difficult to interact with while driving 75 MPH on the highway - primarily because I had no experience with it. After I got home, I spent less than five minutes learning the interface while parked in my garage and quickly concluded that it was not only easy to use, but the best way yet to interact with a vehicle.

As far as the "very frustrating" gear selector is concerned, I can't understand their finding. It makes a lot more sense to me to pull a button to go backward and push a button to go forward than it does to pull a lever backward to go forward!

On the opposite end of the scale, they enjoyed the "smooth shifting" automatic transmission. Those of us who are experiencing jerky 2-3 and sometimes 1-2 and 3-4 shifts certainly don't agree. Shifts between 4 and 10 are virtually imperceptible.

Consumer Reports needs to stick with objective facts since they don't seem qualified to deliver subjective opinions.

And stop injecting their bullshit leftwing politics into their magazine.

Funny thing is CR complained about Acura's when they had physical buttons for most functions and said there were too many buttons, then they rightfully complained about the awful 2 touchscreen layout but it should not have effected its reliability ratings, now they are complaining about another system yet they won't say what kind of layout would make them happy.

If CR and car mags never bitched and tried to sound clever complaining about physical buttons in Acura's, Acura likely never would have gone crazy with the touchscreen/eliminating buttons which just made things really bad for their interiors.

Sorry if I can't say this but what kind of retards do they have working at CR that, after 4 years, they don't understand and are frustrated by the Honda/Acura push-button shifter? It's a few buttons, clearly labeled, in the same order as every other brand, and there's actually a bit of logic to it: push forward for drive, pull backward for reverse.
IMO these clowns think they have some sacrosanct influence where, if they keep harping on something, they can influence huge companies to bend to their will, no doubt emboldened by the 2012 Civic.

Clearly that had never seen an early-60s Chrysler product. Or even an Edsel for that matter.

seeing Aspec RDX almost every other day now, seems to be a popular package, just wish they did more with rear end but overall nice effort.

Just got my 2019 RDX Tech after trading in 2010 MDX Tech (for $13K). Loving it so far despite steep learning curve. The transmission shifting is intuitive, easy, and likeable. The touchpad is going to be great once I get it down pat. I'm liking it already after being very skeptical on first use.

Not so much a review but another in-depth video about the RDX
