Just a few thoughts,
During my return trip on Friday, Dec 5th, I encountered very heavy rain and this lasted for about 45 miles coming north on I-81. The rain was so heavy that when my RLX hit a substantial depth of water, I had my VSA momentarily switch off and then return to normal. This happened at least 5 times and I noticed a red warning (not quite sure which warning indicator as I was very busy). Once I transited the heavy rain and was able to settle down I was thankful for the total control the RLX afforded me and my 3 other passengers to a safe arrival home. I was quite surprised at the CMBS and the LKAS & LDW that the systems could see where at times I could not.
The RLX also showed it's advanced technology when we were traveling I-40WB in TN, at 75/80 and we came upon a gaggle of other drivers, all of a sudden everything in front of me was solid "RED". After avoiding being involved in a massive multi-car collision, we went from 75/80 to 20mph in a millisecond and was able to move over to the right lane and as I passed the vehicle causing the near disaster I looked to my left and there was a 90+ year old gentleman with his wife, oblivious to his surroundings, in his 1975 chevy pickup with his hands locked on the steering wheel and in the high speed lane, and staring forward as if he had macledegeneration (sp) Whew... Point of all this is the P-AWS responded as it was designed to, providing the rear wheels to toe-in to assist in panic braking and scrub off speed, and quickly. "I never felt out of control".
I have come to a point in life where you learn to trust the technology advancements, even if you don't truly understand them.
For all the Nay-Sayers, who are quick to write an article, downplaying the technology provided in the RLX without ever putting it (the car) thru it's paces, to provide an objective, informative, detailed and accurate testimate to the readers, shame on you! You do not do your readership justice.
The Acura RLX is designed at a safety standard to which all other manufactures should strive to achieve...
