Hi Jeff, are you guys on vacation? Didn't the press embargo come off on the 1st? I guess I'm used to seeing you guys have your reviews up at 12:01AM!

Sorry, but Acura didn't invite us to any of the press events so we haven't driven it yet.

I have no clue. I guess they figured that they didn't need any coverage from the TOV.

perhaps they are ready for other medias but not TOV because they know TOV will conduct a very detail review... they just want to be careful... especially lauch date has been push back-again to Aug.. ????

The ride and drive for the RDX wont be till the end of August. Our first order is presold so we wont get to drive any of those. We have to sell a car we wont be able to even drive for two weeks or so.

First Batch - Lemons ???    (Score: 1, Normal) 06-12-2006 21:45

Acurazine.com has a posting from a Cleveland dealer who apparently got a June 9 notice from Acura to 'still' expect July 27 as the initial delivery date (see below). This notice seems to be after the 'news' that August 10 is the new date, for a 'no big deal' manufacturing redesign.

Is it likely that the first batch of RDX's will not have the redesigned parts implied by the August 10 revised date? I'm #1 on the list in my city, and would like to know if the new parts design could be missing from the first RDX deliveries. I remember all too well the regular mid-year parts redesigns on the Mercedes 1999 ML 320's.

*********

July 27 ETA for RDX...Order Window End 6/12

We just received our MOVE allocation today for the RDX. We have been alloted 7 RDXs for July delivery. Acura set July 27th as the expected ETA for the vehicles. Dealer allotments are base 75% off total new Acura sales and 25% off MDX sales.

Other notes of interest:

*This will be the last order for the '06 MDX and Amazon Green and Redrock are no longer available.

*This is the last order for the '06 TL.

*This is the last order for the '06 RL and Celestial Silver has been discontinued.

*This is the last order for the RSX...possibly forever.

There is nothing wrong with the first batch of cars. The problem was with the assembly line. When they moved from "prototype" production to full speed, the line slowed down too much. They are making some software changes and reprograming the robots to build the cars at the needed speed.
