Did anyone consider the Acura RDX before they bought their Mitsubishi Outlander? The RDX completes (somewhat) against the top-of-the-line Outlander, though the RDX does cost about $5K more. Both have lots of high tech features (in the top-of-the-line models). The RDX, however, has all the features that Outlander owners complain are missing: sports car handling, rear-view camera, real-time traffic reports integrated into the navigation system, upscale interior, better build quality, better radio clarity, heated side mirrors, turn signals in the mirrors, dual zone climate control, better resale value, more dealers (and dealers more likely to be in business 5 years from now), etc. Pluses for the the Outlander are lower price, better looking (to most people), uses regular gas, lower greenhouse gas emissions (for Al Gore fans), and optional 3rd row seats (for kids only). Any other considerations?
