2015 Acura RDX

My TL had to spend a couple of nights at the Acura dealer to have a vibration in the sunroof fixed and a front-end alignment issue addressed. While it was away from home I got to borrow a loaner – a 2015 Acura RDX with about 2,000 miles. The RDX is Acura's "entry-level" crossover slotted …
