Great price on an RL in the metro west area.
I offered to buy a new RL from Herb Connolly's internet sales manager for the same price today.
This was their response:
"Regarding the deal in question the customer did infact pay $40,700 plus fees, but they did not include the fact that they had a trade in. The vehicle they traded in was something we saw good value in it for resale, so that is how they were able to get such an amazing deal."
I interpret their response as "No we cannot sell you a 2006 RL for that price".
Any additional info. regarding your purchase would be helpful.

I have dealer ready to sell me the 06RL for $40,500 but have yet to get to the point of discussing the "dealer fees". Have people been generally paying the destination fee or is this usually included when you have purchased the RL? I think I am getting a fair deal but want to make sure they don't get me on the fees.....

Be careful that the price is inclusive of the delivery fee, which dealers seem to believe is a separate fee to be added on after you agree to a price. This fee is contained within the MSRP so I don't know why they think it is appropriate to attempt to add it after the fact.
If they honor that price, I would not harp too much if they added $100-$300 dollars in their dealer fees, even though the prep of the vehicle is also listed within the MSRP.
Do the math yourself - include the quoted price, TTL and no more than $300 in fees. I would walk if they come up with one penny beyond that.

My delivery fee was included in the 40,600.00 purchase price. title fee 68.00, doc fee 55.00 and also the 6% sales tax. Nothing else.

Seems like we all are managing to get deals on this vehicle that we can live with.
While I did not consider this when I first started posting, and as I saw a recent comment speak to trade-ins which the dealer may have made his money on you from the transaction, I did not trade-in any vehicle when I purchased.
In the interest of full disclosure for those who are weighing our comments, I think this is valuable information to consider when making your vehicle purchase.

I stopped by the Acura dealer to pick up a brochure on the RL. I sat in one and was impressed. I was running errands and didn't have time for a test drive.
The $41k pricing sounds very good, that certainly has my attention. But don't forget that even though it's new, it's already 1 yr old on the market since the 2007's are being released by manufacturers already. So the price reflects a 1yr old RL but you get a new one.

I just bought a 2006 RL without tech package from Pohanka in chantilly VA on Thursday July 28th. The price for the car (including destination fee) was $40,800. The other fees I had to pay were $299 for processing fee, taxes (3% in VA) and tags ($32).
I thought it was an insanely good deal. If you go to Pohanka, start off at $40K as your bottom line price and then you can negotiate up to $40,800. I made one concession at $40,500 and said it was my final offer but then they came back with that price but snuck in the $615 destination charge and I said no way. $40,800 was the compromise. So plan to have your salesmen go back and forth with the sales manager, but if you're patient, you can get the car at a great price.
I didn't buy any accessories as they are much cheaper online.
I've seen the comments on the Infiniti M35 and BMW 5 series and GS350 AWD and if you price out similarly equipped cars, you're looking at $52K+. Are these cars worth 20% more? No Way...
Great car, awesome combination of performance, luxury and technology.

Does anyone know?

Jul 30, 2006 (12:55 pm)
I don't think so. The RDX's competition is the BMW X3, Ford Escape, etc. while the MDX wants some of the the BMW X5 & Lexus RX 350 customers.

I had the dealer that, I leased my last 2 RL's from, quote me a 45k+ price on an 06 last week (no trade).
Is anyone getting deals like this (without a trade)in the New England area? If so can you post the details (dealer + financial info. etc).
Anyone know how to figure out if the dealer incentive will be extended or modified in August?
I have an 04 RL lease car that must be returned in less than a month.
