Hello everyone and seasons greetings

My current daily driver is a 13' Acura AWD Tech. The Q3 is high on my list as a replacement. The Acura is nice but the suspension and build quality are somewhat disappointing.

Cheers!

I'm not a big fan of Acura. They are reliable but not great in terms of design. I'm much more excited about the Audi brand.

What other cars are you considering as a replacement?

I'm at the early stage in researching a replacement. The Lexus NX 200 is one that I'm considering. The Audi is the only German brand I would consider. Reliability is an important consideration in the process. I'm going to wait and see what improvements the 2017 Q3 brings to the table. I'm hoping more horsepower is one of them. 200 HP isn't all that exciting.
If Acura would bring back SH-AWD and sort out the chassis dynamics of the RDX, it would be on the short list.

We traded in a 2010 Acura RDX SH-AWD. She had 54,000 miles after 5 years with zero problems.

People and even another salesman at the dealer said that if the RDX is in that great condition, why trade her in. My answer was very honest. After 5 years it was just time for a new car for the Mrs.

Without a doubt the RDX was one of the best quality cars I've ever own in over 40 years of driving.

Well Lexus is consistently ranked number one in terms of reliability, so if that is the most important thing to you, Lexus would be a good choice.

Well after a lot of research and a few test rides my search has come to an end. I traded the Acura in for a 2016 KIA Sorento SX AWD 2.0 Turbo. The build quality, feature content, ride quality and quietness sold me. Acura would do well to pay attention to the Koreans and what they are doing. I test drove the Q3 as well and I liked it a lot but it was just a tad on the small side for me. I plan to stop in from time to time because I enjoy reading this forum. It's a very civil and comfortable place to visit. Cheers! H-F.

Here in Korea, consumers are moving towards Kias and Renault Samsung and away from Hyundais.

Personally, I like what Kias have done with their designs but I don't have much experience driving them.

As for Hyundais, like any other Asian cars, the handle feels light and gas pedal is very sensitive, unless you move into top of the lineup like Genesis or Equus, which feels a bit more "German"
