#1086 of 2246 2011 RDX FWD w/Tech
Dec 12, 2010 (7:34 pm)
I purchased a 2011 RDX FWD with Tech. package a few weeks ago in the Chicago area for $33,850 plus TTL. Out the door for about $36,500 and took the 0.9% financing. Also got 2 year maintenance (oil changes, wiper blades, brakes, etc.) thrown in for no charge. I e-mailed about 9 or 10 area Acura dealers and got the best quote from Napleton Acura in Elmhurst. I was a bit surprised at how little inventory is out there on this vehicle. Most dealers only had one or two FWDs and it was usually only in white or black. I know that AWD is popular in northern climates, but in a metropolitan area, how much do you really need it?

Morton Grove was very rude when I called. The one in Palatine is where I wanted to go, but they kept playing around via e-mail saying to come in for great deals and that they don't give prices over the net.
Hoffman Estates seems to do a good business since I see their plate tags everywhere, but their quotes were sky high and the first quote I got was for (not kidding) a $98,000 2007 Bentley. So obviously someone was kind of confused about the difference between Acura & Bentley.
Elmhurst had the best price, but there was a big of a haggle with the sales managers and finance was by far not the best experience ever. In fact it after getting updated credit reports post purchase, the finance part was horrible. Also, they were very pressuring and wanted my old car right away to appraise, then that was a mess too. If I was't firm with them or in the mood to deal with bs that day I would have walked out. However, my actual salesman was VERY nice, knowledgeable and not your typical pushy car salesman. I liked him a lot and would recommend him hands down.
If it came down to it, I am not certain at this time that I would return there to purchase a car again. As much as I liked the salesman, the rest of the deal was kind of questionable. The next closest quote I had was about $500 more, but for less bs and more piece of mind especially with my credit info, the $500 seems like a no brainer.
Either way, I love my new RDX and am glad I made the leap to purchase. Plus, that remote start has come in handy with this early frigid weather!

I just bought a 2011 AWD RDX with Tech Package including destination for $35,425. $500+ below invoice. The only other charges were TTL. Bought this in East Brunswick NJ. Great dealership, no hassle at all. Drove away with the car only an hour after I arrived at the dealer.

I am glad to finally hear from someone who bought AWD w/tech. Thanks. Did you get any other options? Anything attractive offered in financing?

You seem like you had a good deal, I have been searching but no luck and very pushy salesman. What dealer did you go to? and who is the person you dealt with?

I did not get any other options nor did I purchase any of the extended waranties. I did get 1.9% financing for 5 years which was offered by Acura Financial. The dealer also threw in a year of oil changes. Overall I think I did good.
#1092 of 2246 price for 2011 RDX base w/o tech
Jan 21, 2011 (12:19 am)
Hi, I am shopping for RDX in LA area, CA. The quote I got from nearest dealer was 34000 OFD price. The sales tax in LA is 9.725%. I think I may be able to reduce it to 33700. Is it a good price? I also consider to add a sport step ( I am petite), which quoted as more than 700 installed. Do you think I should negotiate the total price including the step? Any tips and suggestions appreciated!

I just agreed to purchase a 2011 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Tech Package and a roof rack. The sticker price was $39,160 and the purchase price is $36,700. I will pick it up next month when the lease on my Murano expires. Acura's 1.9%/60 months financing doesn't expire until Feb. 28, 2011. My wife has a 2008 RDX, so I know what driving fun I'm instore for and I'm looking forward to it. The posts on this site were a big help in reaching the final price with the dealer.
