Before buying my 2012 x3, I had bought a 2013 RDX. It drove well but as mentioned, the suspension was noisy, the handling was ok. For the price it was a good vehicle but when I drove the x3 and realized that the fuel economy was very similar, I cancelled the RDX and dished out more money to get the x3. I do not regret my my purchase as I am extremely satisfied with the x3. Yes it has less power 3 litre v6 compared to a 3.5 litre v6 for the RDX but it is smooth and has an 8 speed transmission vs six speed for the RDX.
