#1566 of 2028 Details of my 2013 Acura RDX AWD w/ Tech Purchase
Nov 29, 2012 (4:07 pm)
Yes the purchase was made last night. Here are my final numbers for my 2013 Acura RDX AWD w/ Tech.
Selling Price: $37,615
Dealer Processing Charge (Not required by law): $200
Electronic Title and Registration: $20
Total Purchase Price: $37,835
Tire Recycling Fee:$4.00
Title Tax: $1098.90
Title Fees: $100
Lien Filing Fees: $20
Registration Fees $195
Total Cash Delivered Price $39,252.90
For my 2008 Lexus IS 350 which was just shy of 65k miles I got $19,600 for it (the highest - by far - over two Lexus Dealers and Carmax) from the Acura dealership I went to. There was $8058.42 due on it. That gave me Trade-in Equity of $11,441.58
= $27,811.32 = final amount I am responsible for.
I was approved for 1.9% APR financing from Acura Financial (Honda financial) for 60 months from them but chose instead to go with my work's Credit union (I work for Fed govt) for 1.99% APR. On a 60 month loan it's $1ish more each payment at $487.38. Not sure how much it would change if I decided to do 4 year payments instead of 5 years.
I don't know if I have the best price in here or not. But if anyone wants to see my purchase order, I am willing to blur out my sensitive info and share it. If you're in the DC area and can do Laurel's Tischer Acura dealership, please pass my name along as the referral because maybe I can get some credits or reward points for the referral.
Email me (my email is my username here gmail ) and I'll give you the salesperson's name. Today's the 29th and tomorrow's the 30th, I don't know if the end of the month thing is real or not, but if it is, it's a good time to make your move.
Two Final notes:
1) Above I've put in italics the fees I wasn't expecting or expecting to be different. I don't really know at this point if I can bring up anything but these weren't disclosed to me. But then again, I didn't pressure hard for a full breakdown of all fees to expect. I'd strongly suggest making all dealers you're considering do that. Really spell out what the fees should be. I thought it was simply going to be Tax, Tags ($180), and Dealer processing ($200).
2) For anyone sharing prices, please consider doing a breakdown like mine. I think it really gives a more helpful picture. Especially when it comes to these purchases which are so large in nature, I think it's a big help to have the full picture and not some info. I think the "OTD" prices really aren't helpful without the full picture because there are so many factors w/ each individual purchase (trade-in, accessories, etc) to consider. Just my thoughts.

I got the same approval from my credit union at 1.95%. What I was offered is the 2013 acura RDX FWD Tech for the amount of 35,196.00 included is the all season floor mat and wheel locks. Dealer says it may go lower on the financing but I may stick with my credit union..You think is a good deal?

#1569 of 2028 Invoice price for base rdx?
Nov 30, 2012 (10:13 pm)
I have been quoted a price of $33238 for a base fwd non-tech 2013 RDX in the SF Bay Area. I reckon getting it down to invoice (which is only a few hundred down) should be possible? Does that seem about right? Another dealer said he would "throw in fog lights" (dealer installed) for $33500. Acura.com shows the fog lights with a $350 msrp price tag which would make the second deal slightly cheaper. I am not looking for the tech package but definitely need the fog lights.

You can go lower on that car because the invoice is 32,245 plus 350 for the fog light adds up to 32,595. They are offering me 35,196 for a tech FWD RDX and the invoice is 35,670 here on Edmunds not all dealers work the same.

TrueCar.com is giving me a price of $39,593 (Factory Inv-$38,160). Not sure I'm reading these
threads correctly but the T.C. price sounds high to me - what do you all think? -- These posts
are incredibly helpful - many thanks!

Saillier I just bought the RDX FWD W/ Tech for 35,196.00 for the AWD add 1,200.00 more makes it 36,396.00. The best option is to call 10 dealers in a radious of 100miles from your area and propose them an offer below invoice. Then give them your email and have them send quotes to your email,and then say which ever dealer gives me the best deal is the one I choose. On my sale the wheel locks and all season floor mats were included I couldn't do more. Msrp on an RDX FWD Tech is 38,020 I'm under 2,824 msrp, I think I did a good deal. Going dealer to dealer is a waste of time done that and no good deals. Internet managers get better deals..

What a big difference!! Louisville,KY, I think only has one Acura dealer so really like the idea of sending the e-mails. What is the 1,200 you threw cover. Many thanks, alvares!!!
