That price sounds very high.
End of October 1 bought a 2013 RDX AWD without the tech package and paid $34,000 + tax and fees. Had to push and sit a the deals hip reading the paper for 2 hours.

Wondering if anyone has gotten a better deal or if its even possible to negotiate a better deal than Acura's current offer of $449 w/ $3299 due at signing + tax? This is for the front wheel drive w/ Tech package.
The offer reads;
Closed-end lease for 2013 RDX 6 Speed Automatic with Technology Package vehicles (TB3H5DKNW) available from November 1, 2012 through January 2, 2013, available to customers who qualify for the Acura Financial Services Super Preferred or Preferred credit tier. Not all lessees will qualify. Higher lease rates apply for lessees with lower credit ratings. MSRP $38,915.00 (includes destination, excludes tax, license, title fees, registration, documentation fees, options, insurance and the like). Actual net capitalized cost $35,643.12. Net capitalized cost includes $595 acquisition fee. Dealer contribution may vary and could affect actual lease payment. Total monthly payments $16,164.00. Option to purchase at lease end $22,959.85. Must take new retail delivery on vehicle from dealer stock by January 2, 2013. Lessee responsible for maintenance, excessive wear/tear and 15¢/mile over 10,000 miles/year for vehicles with MSRP less than $30,000, and 20¢/mile over 10,000 miles/year for vehicles with MSRP of $30,000 or more. See your Acura dealer for complete details.

Be sure to check your tax liability. Here in Texas, we pay tax on the full amount, rather than a monthly 'use' tax. Can be pretty hefty on a $40K vehicle. Not a big fan of money down leases; although a quick look at my 'sign and drive' lease of the same vehicle with 12K miles/yr is within a few bucks of yours in terms of total paid out over the three years.
Of course, make sure your projected mileage will fall within the guidelines of the lease(unless you are absolutely certain you will purchase at the end of the lease OR will absolutely lease another Acura). That can be a 'got cha' with only 10k per year.
I know I haven't actually answered your question; but I doubt there will be a significantly better deal unless some incentives come before the end of the year. You could always ask for a 'free maintenance' package from the dealer(not a ton of money, but it's something). I'd also get the terms of a 'sign and drive' lease...no point in shelling out three grand up front on a lease, IMO.(Makes the monthly pmt look scary, I know...but you keep your money in your pocket up front).
Also, none of my business; but if you don't qualify as a 'top tier credit customer' according to their standards, be willing to walk out on the deal. They 'may' try to hit you with a higher rate or fees; but if you have decent credit, don't let them alter the terms at the last minute...classic technique.

Thanks 4mercoachrick! If i'm not mistaken, we pay tax on the monthly payment. I have no problem putting money down as it's the monthly payment that is more of a concern BUT do not want to put more than they're asking for (tax included - if i can negotiate that!).
Well noted on the mileage as my driving needs will be sure to change in the next few years w/ a new daughter and plans to move out of the city. Will def need more than 10k plus I read that Acura now offers roll-over miles from your current lease which will help a lot.
No worries on not exactly answering my question, but good insight nonetheless! What do you mean by the 'sign and drive' lease terms?
If I can secure the same deal w/ tax included, I'll be happy to pull the trigger, just wondering if that's even possible...
Regarding top tier credit... I've learned that lesson in the past... I have pretty good credit but if they do try that, i know to walk away.

What Chicago area dealer are you referring to? I have bought 2 acuras from Continental in Naperville and have been very pleased with their offers and service.
#1520 of 2028 Embarrassed to death
Nov 14, 2012 (11:11 pm)
Anybody want an almost new 2013 RDX Base AWD? I foolishly traded my X3 for this thing. Gave in after hours of discussion so we could take the grandbaby home to bed. Next morning I drove back to Pikes Peak Acura (in Colorado Springs) and said I wanted my BMW back. They laughed and pointed out that Colorado's Buyers Remorse law doesn't apply to new autos. So I'm stuck with a car I hate. I mean, it's a perfectly competent Japanese station wagon, but I want my real car back.
Sell for book - it's in perfect shape, about 7k miles ( I drive to Missouri from Colorado almost weekly), has clear bra and extra tint on front side windows. Please help! Pleeeez!

Lots of people like RDX. Almost bought into all that raving about the car until test driving one. Sorry about your situation. Have you tried trading in your RDX for what you really liked?
