#1027 of 2246 Re: RDX SH-AWD non-tech [acehawk]
Jun 08, 2010 (8:49 pm)
This forum helped me research a RDX purchase for my wife, so figured jot down my buying experience.
After 2 weeks of soliciting bids from local dealerships & fairly intense bargaining, I got a new 2010 RDX SH-AWD (non-tech) for $33,500. This price includes a "protection pack", comprised of rubber floormats, mud flaps, and rear cargo tray. All local dealers seem to put some sort of package like this on the car and overcharge for it; anywhere from $400-600. I declined & refused to pay anything for it, and they finally gave up on it.
I'm in Kirkland, WA. I negotiated rock bottom price for a week with 3 local dealers over email/phone, then at last moment threw in my wife's 13 year old POS as a trade-in, which they gave me $900, which was reasonable. Ended up having a horrible experience at Bellevue Acura, due to a very lazy/unprofessional salesjerk. So I walked out, drove 25mi out of my way to Seattle Acura, where I got very professional/efficient service and got it $1000 cheaper.
They charged me $256 doc & $150 license fees, and local tax is 9.8%.
$36,200 out the door, including 900 trade-in, fees, and tax.
Acura has .09% 36mo financing till July, which is basically a free loan. I doubt 2011 models will be drastically different than 2010's, and with cheap financing, now is a good time to get a good price.
By the way, Costco price would have been about $1000 more than I paid, so I definitely recommend taking your time to shop around & negotiate hard.
Hope it helps, good luck.

#1029 of 2246 CPO Documentary Charges $800 -
Jun 15, 2010 (9:08 am)
CPO 2007 high mileage, added an $800 documentary fee and wouldn't negotiate. I walked. They haven't come back to me with a negotiation. I'm more likely to buy a lower mileage car and spend more $$ so long as I feel dealer is being decent.
Was I right?
#1030 of 2246 RDX FWD w/ TECH - $32,200 w/o TTL
Jun 17, 2010 (11:28 am)
I just bought an RDX FWD with Tech for $32,200 before TTL. I thought it was a worth while upgrade to the non-tech which was priced at $29,500, so I pulled the trigger. This was at Norm Reeves Acura in Mission Viejo CA and I believe the salesman was Dwayne. If you want to check out the price, make sure you ask them for the internet/fleet price, not the overpriced ticket. Overall, the price was $900 below invoice, so I figured I got a good deal.
BTW, the color was Grigio/Black.
I tried bargaining for free all weather mats but the best they did was sell it at their cost, which was still overpriced - $150.
I believe if dealer is selling at internet prices, there is VERY LITTLE room to negotiate.

Just paid 34K for awd no tech for lease. But, traded in 08 tsx that was 20K over in miles and still had to pay last payment, total due was a little over 3K at end of lease. That being said, I am happy with payment at $495, nothing down just $50 regis fee at time of pickup. The car is fantastic.
#1036 of 2246 Price for 2010 RDX SH-AWD+TECH
Jul 22, 2010 (2:18 pm)
I got an offer at $33000+tax+title etc. Is this a good price? I see that this price is much lower than what I saw in the forum. Did the dealers just get some incentives?
