#2239 of 2248 2014 RDX FWD w/ Tech
Nov 14, 2013 (4:18 pm)
i got a quote for a RDX FWD w/tech package in Southern California
$35,415 + tax and fees.
7.75% tax rate and like $445.75 in fees
comes out to around $38.6k
my first quote was $36785+ tax and fees and I ended at $35,415 + tax and fees. It's been hard to get the 4 dealers in my area to drop even lower.
#2241 of 2248 RDX premium fuel or regular
Nov 21, 2013 (7:35 am)
I am looking at a 2014 RDX and the salesman is telling me that I can run my RDX on regular fuel, and that the premium is only "recommended" not required. He said to run a tank of premium every so often for a clean out. Is this really the case? I have a 2011 MDX and when I have run regular fuel in it the knocking is outrageous, the last time I ran regular it was so bad I had to put some fuel cleaner into my tank to get things back to normal. Has something changed with the 2014 RDX that will allow me to run on regular fuel and still enjoy driving it?

they changed their engine in the 2013 RDX. I just got the 2014 RDX and haven't tried running regular gas yet. My sales person also told me that it can run on regular. it's only a $3-$4 different for a full gallon of gas, i am not sure if I want to take the risk.

I would never depend on the word of a salesperson as to the fuel needs of your vehicle.
What does your manual say?
Most cars that require or recommend premium have a label inside the fuel filler door.

manual says premium recommended, RUG minimum acceptable.
I have starting running some tanks of regular in mine, and have not noticed 1 iota of difference. MPG as good or better, performance fine (hey, if they took away a few HP, still has 50+ overkill!). And have never heard a knock or ping (if I did, would never do it again).

What was the MSRP on the car and what other options did you get and what did you pay for those other options?
Do you have any idea on how much discount to ask for on extras? For example to get the wood-looking steering wheel the let price is $550.

Hi, I'm looking for that model in the ny/nj area as well. Which dealership did you get the quote from? I just started getting quotes and so far all have been above your base not including options.
