If I am looking for a base RDX, any thoughts on how difficult it will be to get my hands on one? Dealer inventory looks pretty lean - am wondering if they only get a few to get people in the door and move them up to the more expensive / profitable models. Also, have heard complaints on noise on the 4-wheel drive model and was told that for the new RDX, it no longer has the super handling AWD but rather a 4WD unit made by Ford - any truth to the noise issue and the Ford rumor?

supply varies by dealer. some carry base models, some only tech. and depending on where in teh country you are, so never order FWD and others rarely order AWD.
But, if you look around your region, you should find a decent supply of non-tech models.
THe AWD is made by Honda, not Ford. It is basically the next generation of what is in the CRV. No, it is no longer the SH-AWD system.
I have a base AWD, and don't notice any noise related to having the AWD. or much noise at all, maybe the tires on certain road surfaces, but generally it is very quiet.
Actually, I am not sure if I have ever even engaged teh AWD yet. If I did, it was seamless!

Thank you for your input. My other vehicle is a Honda with AWD and it does not make any noise so perhaps the critical comments I heard were from someone who had a unique issue.
If anyone has suggestions as to Acura dealers that are good or not so good in the NJ area, any info is appreciated.

You are very lucky living in NJ as some of the lowest prices paid in the USA for a 2013 RDX and posted on this forum were for vehicles purchased in New Jersey. If you go back to posts from June 2012, you will see some of the prices paid. Here is a internet quote sent to me in June after an email inquiry from Acura of Denville, NJ for a base AWD model (no tech package) which included destination:
(2013 Acura RDX): MSRP - $36,615 Your E Price - $33,685.
Good luck. It's an incredible vehicle. I replaced a 2008 Honda CRV with my 2013 RDX and am very pleased.

Where in Jersey? I can cover you for north and South!
I also had that quote from Denville (and at one point, they offered it at $300 less, but they had very few in stock, and nothing we liked). The other place that is very aggressive with internet quotes is Ramsey, which is where we got ours. They also had a much larger supply to choose from, and seem to be trying to corner the market.
If you want south Jersey (where I live) I know the big dealers down here too.
Interesting (well, to me) story. 2 weeks ago I was going upstate NY on the thruway, and ended up in a row of 3 2013 RDXs, and all 3 of us were bought at Ramsey. Long odds on that!

Denville or Ramsey would work. I shop online and am looking for the best price from an ethical dealer - sleazy dealer is a non-starter for me. Will go to South Jersey if the price makes the trip worth my while.
Thanks for the info.

Yes, it was Kearney Mesa Acura. The sales person agreed with my first offer so it took just 5 minutes for the whole thing. My first offer was based on a phone negotiation that led to an unfortunate drive down to the dealership further south.
Kearney Mesa Acura was relatively low key and the arrival of the car and the signing of the paperwork were smooth and fast.

prices tended to be cheaper up north. And those would be the 2 dealers to go to. Ramsey was fine. no gimmicks, and Denville has a good reputation too. And you can work it out price wise before hand.
