That's not exactly a stunning comparison. The 2011 3 series was on it's way out at the end of it's model run and was supported by significant incentives (I was shopping for one around that time frame as well). The 2013 RDX is only a few months old and supported by no incentives, other than leases or possibly holiday financing. I few weeks ago I bought a 2012 Acura TL for well below invoice, but again, that was supported heavily by Acura cash incentives. Unless the poster's dealer enjoys giving away cars at cost or for a loss, I don't see how the deal could have happened, especially with no trade in to recoup money on. In the end, unless the deal can be proven, I just wouldn't want other shoppers to see that post and feel like they can walk into their dealer and expect the dealer not to laugh in their face for making an offer at $2K under invoice on a 2013 RDX.

Forget my price. The person to reply to is happy chrissy who managed to buy a 2013 RDX AWD for $33,500. at a Long Island dealership. The manufacturer's list price with destination is $36,615. More than 3k under MSRP and almost 1k under invoice of $34,436. I would love to know where she bought it. Incredible price for a newly released vehicle!!

Does anyone know if these are built in Japan or Ohio?

Finally saw one today. Not at a dealer (one had one come in but it was quickly gone).
Actually saw one in the parking lot at Lowes tonight. 99% sure it was that color. And it did look nice. A big different, but not something that looks like it will become trendy or outdated.

I had been emailing dealers in the area for their best price and the lowest price I got to was $34500.(which I thought was good) I kept emailing dealers saying that I got this price and thank you but no thank you. They kept coming back to me saying that they can beat it by $300-$600 and my dealer said he would go down another $1000 making it $33500 which he did! (sidebar- I was still speaking with dealers up to 2 hours before I picked up the car) lol The end! YEA!!!!!
My strategy get it in an email and let the other dealers fight it out and pretend that ur going elsewhere if they can't do better and they will continue to keep calling you to get their business. I am sure other people have done this before..?

On the window sticker, it says that 15% of the parts come from Japan however, the car is assembled in Ohio. Also,, the engine and he transmission is USA. I think a lot of manufactures are there are changing where the cars are being built. I traded in a Acura with my deal and got $600 above what they told me the wholesale was and that car was built in Japan.

Hello. Keep this in mind when you think about getting $3k off without a trade. They are going to make $3k or more on the trade so they could go below invoice on the new car. I think around $2k off MSRP is a great deal at this point in time without any trade or huge dealer fee. I was at an Acura dealer today and they had over 14 new RDX's on the lot. That same dealer usually only has about 4 in stock. Looks like some inventory is finally starting to catch up.

If my wife finally has enough with looking and says go get me one of these now, I would probably target 2K off as the trigger point to get it done. as soon as one of the local dealers bites on that (straight deal, no trade) it would be enough for me at this point.
$34,500 for a base AWD is still a lot of coin, but way better than $36,600!
not as good as the $29,000 I can get a Subaru outback limited for (2013 redesign). Though that does not seem to be priority 1 for her...

I saw 0.9% financing is on the 2012 RDX only
What does the 2013 RDX qualify for?

what are normal bank auto loan financing rates these days? About 4%?
