#1139 of 2244 How To Buy Via Internet...lc83
Aug 19, 2011 (2:02 pm)
My actual emails...
I received your online inquiry about a 2011 Acura RDX and would love to help.
Please let me know how I can offer assistance or if there is a more convenient way to reach you.
Subject: RE: Please let me know how I can offer assistance...
Looking for an internet price quote for your RDX FWD Base, Stock # - 15491A
Thank you for the follow up. Here is the quote you requested:
Stock # 15491A 2011 Acura RDX 2wd White / Ebony
$31,000.00 Internet Sale Price
This price does not include tax, license or any accessories you may choose. In addition to the pricing we have .9% financing available up to 60 months. This is on approved credit with AFS. This price is good through March 31st 2011. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
Thank you very much for the quote. I know that $31,000 is a very good price, but unfortunately more than we are willing to spend. I was hoping for a really great deal around $29,900. If you could meet that price we would buy before the end of the month.
Thank you for the offer. I went to the new car sales manager and presented him your offer. He said that at $30,400 we would have a deal on that RDX. In addition to the price I have a parts and service coupon book worth over $1,000 in parts and service discounts that you can use while you own the RDX. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
Thank you for going the extra distance to get us this great price. Am I correct to assume it includes the $860 destination fees. If so, we will accept this offer if you will include the roof rack, cross bars and installation.
The cost of the Roof Rack installed is $667.00. Which would make your offer $29,800 plus the rack. Which I cant do. I spoke to the sales manager about this, he said that if you purchased the RDX tonight that we would split the difference with you. The price of the RDX with the Roof Rack installed will be $30,733.00 plus tax and license.
Please help me finish this deal off easy. After sleeping on it I'd like to increase my offer to $30,500 including the rack & inst. I'm headed to the bike trail for a while and I will check with you when I get back.
We will do that. When would you like to take delivery of the RDX?
Just that easy. Email all the nearby dealers via Edmunds or Truecar.com and ask for an internet price quote.
As you can see we paid $30.5 for an '11 fwd base with the factory roof rack inst incl.
Also consider going to other dealers in maybe a 100 mi radius if no one in your town will give you $30,000.
Monday I helped my daughter buy a new '11 CR-V SE FWD. Local dealers stuck to their guns at $22550 for 3 weeks and would not budge. We looked at Truecar and found a dealer 104 mi away who listed his price as $21,300, which is the price we set out to get it for from day one.
I again spoke to both local dealers and neither would match that $21.3 price. Further, one of them bad mouthed the deal saying it was bogus, bait and switch, etc.
The out of town dealer, Manly could not have treated us better, even put the car on the rack for me to view the undersidewhile my daughter did the paper work.
Good luck, stick to $30,000 and don't give up.
#1140 of 2244 How's my quote / is Costco pricing worth it?
Aug 21, 2011 (3:02 pm)
Dealers doing what they typically do have offered what i think is a high quote and i just wanted to check if anyone had an opinion:
Norther Nv Area, looking at a 2011Palladium RDX SH AWD, no tech package
retail value = 36,071
selling price = 34800
tax & doc fee = 3065
total cost = 37865
not a good negotiator because i have never bought out of want, only need... but can i get this down more, and then what are the extras that they are going to try and sell to me after the fact. Is the costco program good for the likes of me with no negotiating skills? Thanks in advance for the replies

Happy Summer Marc,
WOW. Many thanks for your wonderful help. You got a super good deal and truly a master negotiator. Sorry about my belated reply due to a hiking trip.
Due to the earthquake in Japan, 2011 RDX is actually in short supply. It seems that no incentive is given to the dealer and financing is shortened to 0.9% for 36 months (rather than 60 months). I will follow your way and report back what pricing i can get away.

Thanks Linda, I've learned what I can, some from this site and others.
At least I think you are refering to me, Doug. Sorry for the confusion. Ha, as for hiking...how nice, have not yet been out this year, but hope to this week. We have camped once though.
As far as supply problems, it seems true. We went to the Honda dealer in Folsom and they either hid them well, (saw some inside the shop) or are truly having trouble getting them. They said they only had 23 cars. But Manly, the dealer in Santa Rosa - a much smaller town than ours, had 63 cars.
I'm even more glad we got the .9%/60mo when we did after hearing it was dropped.
Good luck with your purchase. Don't forget to look around if you can't get the right deal nearby. Our deal last week on the CR-V proves the importance of a wide net.
Email until you get the right offer, nothing in person until you are ready to finalize the deal.
And very last, always say no to the 3 gouging questions from the finance guy. No protection package. No extended warranty. No gap insurance.
Just say no.

I have a quote for Acura RDX 2012 SH AWD with tech package for 36908 destination included, tax and registration not included. Is this a good price? Thanks.

Are the 2012 out already?

Yes there are several off them in the dealers lot. Only one was 2011.
