Hello. I'm new to this forum and contemplating buying the 2013 RDX. Only other choice for now is the 2012 Honda CRV. I realize alot of differences, luxury etc. but one concern i have looking ahead to retirement in 2013 is MPG. CRV i note some folks getting 35 mpg on highway....nice.
I have a 2011 TSX. MPG ratings were 31 mpg on highway, yet i'm seeing 36 mpg on my trips. 26 local.
So i'm hoping the "Real World" mpg with actual current owners semi-mirrors the TSX real world mpg....not 36, but perhaps a few more mpg than the 28 they show.
Anyone out there who may be tracking? Under what driving conditions etc etc.???
Big price difference between CRV and RDX, but again, retiring, hoping to have several trips/vacations and looking for comfort, ride etc. Assuming RDX would win out there.
thanks all.

ya no doubt,, the RDX is going to give you a more luxury ride. my sister just purchases one last month and she lives in Florida...so driving conditions are fairly mild (flat). I don't believe she has tracked the mpg..but i will post an update here soon..

I've been tracking, via Fuelly.com, since getting the new RDX in June. So far, after 5000 miles, I'm getting around 19 in town; 30-32 on pure interstate runs (doing around 70 mph, with 3 adults & luggage); and 24-25 overall/combined. I'm happy with that.

Had mine for a month. City 23-24 and highway 29-30. I expect this to go up after the first oil change when the break in oil is replaced. Of course I have a light foot.
