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?

Wondering if danblake is still around. I'm thinking of pricing an RDX. I live in Fairfield County, not too far from NY.

Best CT dealer I've dealt with is Executive in North Haven. Salesperson Joann.

danblake is still here and without a car yet. I got the best CT quote from Acura in Berlin. Breakdown is as follows: $34,436 base + 399 conveyance fee + 2212.02 sales tax + 101 for transfer plate = $37,148.02. This is for an AWD without tech. I had gotten a quote from the NJ dealer in this blog (Acura of Ramsey) and he quoted 33,999 base with 199 conveyance fee, so about $600 and change lower. I asked Berlin if they would match and they said no. The sales mgr told me they are not even offering the 34,436 base anymore (sure). I'm at a stand still. I got a quote from Executive but it was $300-500 higher so I think I deleted it. How is your hunt going? Any info you can share down in the Fairfield area? The $34,436 matches Invoice and compares to a 36,615 MSRP. Perhaps I should pull the trigger, but I dislike paying a $399 dealer fee....they are really quoting $400 over Invoice.

I am starting to lean more toward the Mazda CX9 GT AWD. Yes it's larger but, after reading the reviews of the RDX coupled with the lack of safety features I am looking for (lane departure, avoidance braking, blind spot monitoring, and a couple others that the RDX doesn't have), I am thinking going up in size and down in price. Glad I didn't go for the RDX at this point.
#1530 of 2028 Please help: engine noise
Nov 19, 2012 (3:55 pm)
Help please! I just bought a new RDX. I tried to practice back in in my building's garage. I found twice that when I tried to back in (reverse), the engine suddenly became very loud. It's much lourder than normal. Anyone has the same problem? Is this normal for Acura's car? Or should I go to dealer and check it? What problem it might be? Thank you so much!

Take a look at the KIA Sorento SX AWD. It is similarly equipped but about $6K less than the RDX. I looked at several SUV's, and can buy any of them that I want. You also get 7 passenger seating with the KIA.
