#1094 of 2092 2011 Acura RDX AWD w Tech Package
Jan 21, 2011 (4:31 pm)
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.

My wife and I just purchased a new fully loaded 2011 SH-AWD RDX with tech package (6 miles on ODO) for $38,520 (MSRP $38,580) out the door from Stevens Creek Acura in the South Bay Area, CA. Base purchase price was $34,694 (CA tax killed us at 9.5%). The dealer also threw in their Acura Care package ($500 value) which is 5 'A' services and 4 'B' services. It's basically 4 years of free oil changes/tire rotations/20 point inspections usable only at their dealership.

What do you mean fully loaded and base purchase price. Would you please be more specific? Beyond the SH-AWD what else does it have? I am looking for a similar configuration (I think) here on the east coast.

You can purchase an RDX in FWD or AWD and with or without technology package (technology package is basically navigation with a few other bells and whistles). I like Acura for its simplicity, they don't have a whole lot of cocktail options like BMW or Lexus. By that, I mean the one package they do offer, the technology package, pretty much includes everything you'd want. So by fully loaded, I meant we purchased an RDX with AWD and the technology package (the most expensive model offered).
Base purchase price is the purchase price you agree upon BEFORE taxes, title, licensing fees are included. Taxes and fees vary quite a bit. When negotiating you should always negotiate an out the door price, not a base purchase price. The dealership can hide a lot of random fees to make your out the door price quite a bit more than the base purchase price.

For a 2011 Acura rdx sh-awd with tech package I was quoted a base price of $33,835.92. Add destination, doc fee, cvr, and a boatload of Chicago taxes, the final out the door price is $38,307.49. No options included. No free services offered. Anybody else currently shopping for an rdx or have recently bought one in the last month getting around the same base price? Also, from checking on dealer websites, it seems inventory is low at least around my area.

OK I guess my definition of fully loaded is different, that's why I ask. The SH-AWD w/tech to me, is the minimal I'd be looking for and wondered if you had any dealer installed or other factory options thus 'loading' it with items not mentioned. I added several thousand in options which were dealer installed on our MDX. Now that I'm looking to replace my RX300 with the RDX, I'm trying to get some ideas. Thanks for posting.

I live in the Southern Maryland area. I just purchased a 2011 RDX AWD with tech package for an out the door price of $37,936,86 OTD. Vehicle price was $35,431. I purchased it from Criswell Acura of Annapolis MD. The whole process was a breeze, no haggling at all. I had a price of $35,500 in mind as a fair price. I received an online quote of $35,431 when I sent a request for a best and final price. Was also promised a few free goodies when I pick it up.
Originally test drove the 2010 version thinking it was the 2011. Later I was told it was the 2010. I was offered the opportunity to purchase it for abot $1,000 less than the newer model. The tester had 250 miles on it and looked like it had seen a few road tests. I opted for the brand spanking new one with 5 miles on it. Black on black. Will be arriving hopefully this weekend.
Thank you to all the posters who have posted their experiences as they helped me determine the price I was willing to pay. No haggling and only one qoute request. I live in a more rural area and have to drive an hour and a half to get to the dealer. It wasn't worth it to drive two hours or more to save a couple hundred dollars. I initially considered a 2010 CPO with 15000 miles with a price of $32,500. When I found out that for $2,500 more I could get a new one it was a no brainer to me. Hope this helps someone out.

Congrats on your new car and I'm sure you'll enjoy your RDX. I'm a bit curious, however, why you chose to not bargain with the dealer. I'm saying this because dealers can decrease their quoted price by several hundred dollars. The savings can be significant if you factor in sales tax and finance.
