I had an 06 TSX and 08 RDX tech. Loved them both; but, I wish the TSX had the power and sh-awd handling of the RDX all the time. The extra RDX tech, compact size, and interior space is a nice upgrade compared to the TSX. My TSX was totaled in an accident last fall with +165,000 miles. My 08 RDX is still going strong with +175,000 (handed down to my daughter).
Pick of my RDX in its prime:
Hondata heatshield gasket
Progress Rear Stabilizer bar
Eibach lowering springs
Acura front lip, rear diffuser, roof rack, sunroof air deflector, hitch, splash guards, side molding, all weather mats, cargo mat, LED interior lights, cargo net
The RDX drives better the harder you push her. My RDX was my weapon of choice when I wanted to have fun and hammer the road in front of me.
The issues I've had with the RDX was:
Power steering pump leak
one bad spark plug coil pack (replaced all 4)
hairline leak in bottom of radiator
Very reliable vehicle with most issues starting at +125,000 miles. There is a 105,000 mile service that should have been done at that mileage or every 7-8 years if you are under mileage (spark plugs, water pump, serpentine belt kit, valve adjustment, coolant, oil change). Pretty much fluid, filters, and rotations after that big service (excluding normal wear/tear like battery, brakes, or A/C).
