karhill1, I stand by my post and suggestion. I have been viewing the 2013 RDX prices paid thread for quite some time and used the posts supplied here to help me buy my 2013 RDX AWD non tech so I speak from experience from actually purchasing the car after corresponding with or visiting four different Acura dealers. The 2013 RDX is a new model with new engine, etc. and the sales have been much improved compared to the 2012 model year so why would a dealer "give" a car away for $1600. under invoice? In fact, some dealerships will not sell the vehicle for more than $1600. off MSRP let alone invoice price. I have never seen anyone post in this thread who has paid $36, 200. for an AWD/Tech model. I look forward to seeing the orignal poster's follow up posts on the responses/prices he received from the seven dealerships (with or without the floor mats and wheel locks).

Thats correct one in this thread paid 36,396 for the RDX AWD TECH 2013. I paid 35,196 which is $1,200 less because it's not the AWD I got the RDX FWD TECH 2013. Thats how I made my deal following this thead and adjusted the price less for the FWD. I was able to negotiate, and the all season floor mats and wheel locks included. But keep in mind it's not the otd price taxes and t/l not included.

One dealer accepted my offer $34,000 OTD for 2013 RDX- FWD- Base ( Windows tint,Wheel locks, Nitrogen on it).
Seems Dallas and Arlington dealers are accepting that offer.
Thanks to iris9 for sharing his experience and price paid.
#1669 of 2028 2013 RDX AWD Without Tech
Dec 27, 2012 (8:05 pm)
learned a lot from this forum. Just want to share my buying price.
Location: Libertyville, IL
Model: New 2013 RDX, AWD, without tech package
List Price: $35,720 (without $895 destination)
Discounted Price: 33,040
Plate Transfer and filling: $150
No discounted accessory was offered by the dealer. Focused on the best price for a trade-in. Did not care much about the discount on the accessory since the accessories i need are much cheaper online anyway.
Like to thank lots of people to share their experience and price here.
Happy New Year!

$36,200 + TTL would be a fantastic price for a 2013 RDX AWD w/ Tech if you can get it. My feeling is the dealer may counter with something more in the $36,500-$37,000 range. I got mine for ~$36,800 + TTL. Try to get some free accessories. Good luck!

Thanks to everyone that posted on this thread. Hats off to many of the skilled negotiators. All the information here inspired and equipped me for the negotiation process.
I was not able to do as well as I had hoped. But I am happy with my performance. I just picked up a white RDX FWD w/tech today. I also had a trade-in and ended up in two separate negotiations.
Here is my breakdown:
Location: San Francisco Bay Area
Model: New 2013 RDX, FWD, with tech package
Price Paid: 35,999 (includes destination $895)
Tax (8.325%): 3,021.62
Plate Transfer, filling and tire: $380.75
Total OTD: 39,481.37
Included in price: all weather mats and cargo net.
Question for the group:
Does anyone have any opinion on the Acura extended warranty and maintenance packages? I was offered
- new car warranty up to 8yrs/100k for $1,700
- all maintenance (minus tire purchase, but includes brake pads rotors, parts and labor) up to 5 years/60k for $1,400
I declined at the time telling then I need a couple of days to think.
Sorry for the long post.

Congrats on the new purchase...exact color/package we have!
Regarding the extended warranty, there are plenty of people who dismiss them out of hand. Would you reasonably expect a major failure, outside of the original warranty, that would cost more than the extended program costs? Perhaps on a Euro car, but unlikely on the Acura line, IMO. Why pay so much for something you can't use for the next FOUR years?
Ditto on the maintenance program, unless you can determine it represents at least a 20% discount(1/3 would be better). No point in paying SO much up front. I bought the three-year package just to get it out of the way(lease vehicle); but I paid less than 1/3 of your plan. Kind of a shock since Volvo has included 3,4,5 years maintenance on our last three vehicles
Just MHO and YMMV and all that! Enjoy the new ride!

Living in NE Pa, my negotiated price so far before trade is $34k before taxes, tag etc. Appears to be $400 below invoice cutting into dealer holdback. Decent deal?

The amount what you paid $35, 196 is including destination charges of $895?
