4 of 4
The turbo used in this car like the rest of the car and for that matter Honda/Acura is using dated engines and transmissions. Maybe Acura should just buy the superior performing 2.0 turbo from Hyundai (and the 6 speed automatic too) and use this engine in the RDX, TSX etc. Then the RDX would be faster and get much better mpg. Acura/Honda is just falling further and further behind its competition as it has completely lost the engineering leadership it once had.
