I found three at 'our' dealer in Austin...heck of a drive from central FLA . I would imagine AWD is a bit less popular in FLA vs other areas, but it seems the inventories are filling in after being pretty sparse for the past few weeks. IF AWD is a stumbling block, I'd ask myself if I really wanted it. We've had an AWD vehicle since '07 but haven't really needed it in all that time. I reckon it came in handy about once a year. I have no idea about your driving needs, so my apologies if AWD is a necessity for you. Heck, we have a mountain house and still never 'needed' the AWD. After 3.3 years with the Volvo XC60 AWD, I'm glad I 'saved' $1400 by going with the FWD in the RDX.(Now, watch it snow 14" in central Texas and central Florida this winter ).

we will in NJ, so do get some snow (some years!) and do go up to upstate NY (AKA snow country) at least once every winter, but I still would have been fine with the FWD model. But, we ended up getting AWD, because it was more available, and the offer I got was too good to pass up (as in, barely more if any than the rare FWD available).
In Fla, it seems to be real overkill, and I certainly would get FWD if that is what dealers stock. Mainly because you can usually get a much better deal on what they have a lot of!

Coach, I like the SH-AWD and that much more hp that comes with it. I haven't even tested it, but I test driven the MDX. I believe the MDX is discounted more than the TL, but MDX-ers pay more at the pump and that could add up pretty quickly. If there's one more shortage on gas or the oil/gas people needed a big bonus, I don't want to be driving an MDX waiting in line for cheap premium-gas. RDX I like too, but how do you find its handling? I'm adore the MDX and would possibly consider buying it if I could get that low D/O price someone reportedly had -- $25,400 + $1300 accessories installed free -- for a base MDX 40 miles reg., but the gas consumption...eek!
Happy for you on your new acquisition. Hope you got a good deal on it too.

Thanks for all the info/advice I really appreciate it. I live in Alaska now and will have a home in the mountains of North Carolina we will be driving to from Florida. I will reconsider the need for AWD. So has anyone bought a FWD in the Ocala/Orlando/Tampa/Jacksonville area? If so I would appreciate info on the buying experience.

I'll get out of the way in a minute ; but I must first tell you we have a house in Highlands, NC and used to visit regularly when we lived in ATL. We would not visit during snow season and AWD wouldn't have helped when Hurricane Ivan went 'right over the house'. Brush bars and a chain saw would have been handy, however . We try to make it back during August when possible.
Good luck with your search!

Try Regal in Lakeland. I've been shopping around and the salesperson just
e-mailed me that should could do invoice on a 2013 RDX if I was still interested. I haven't got back with her yet.
I have purchased a couple Acuras from Ed Voyles in ATL and always got a better deal than in FL. I travel btw FL and NC so I don't care where I buy.

I plan to buy a new 2012 MDX with tech pkg with an offer around $40000. Can I get a better deal than this? Thanks!

Talk to a salesman yesterday and his price for me was still $5000 off MSRP. But things changed and I might need to use 40k++ mi a year, so MDX is not a choice for me now. Need gas sipping cars that last and not too small around big trucks.
Check a few pages back and see the low prices ppl are paying for their MDX. Internet and end of month sale prices are better. Good luck on your purchase.

Oct 07, 2012 (5:58 pm)
Can anyone share prices paid before tax on a 2013 rdx w/o tech?
I am looking at buying in Nevada and was quoted $34,440- before tax. Seemed a little high.
Thanks for the help.

Ask if that includes destination charge of $895 which is a hefty amount. Be specific ask for the out the door price itemized. Good luck.
