#1699 of 2028 2013 rdx awd tech package
Jan 09, 2013 (4:08 am)
Pick my rdx last evening from Dayton Ohio. Here is my number
Car price 37000$
Documentation fee 250$
I also brought acura care maintenance for 60k/4 years for 1000$. Still not able to figure out it's worth. I took loan from acura at 1.99 % apr.
I live in michigan. None of dealers from here gave me that price on the car, so had to drive 3 hours to get it.

Too much money for a base RDX I paid $35,196 for the tech FWD

#1704 of 2028 Are there any deals on the new RDX?
Jan 12, 2013 (10:33 am)
We are thinking about a new RDX to replace my wife's 2004 Highlander. My only experience with a luxury brand dealer was with Lexus a few years back and as I recall they were kind of snooty when it came to the sale. The attitude seemed to be "This is a Lexus. Here's the price, take or leave it." We left it.
Just wondering if I should expect the same treatment at an Acura dealer or is it actually possible to negotiate on price? Reading some other posts it seems like many, if not most, dealers are asking for sticker price on the new RDX.

Negotiating with dealer may depend on where you live. Just purchased 2013 RDX AWD w/o tech in eastern Pa. First use this site to get invoice numbers and get dealers in your area via internet to offer below invoice. Pick one and go drive etc to see if you and wife like. Passenger seat does not raise is the only misgiving so far. More power options needed.
DON'T MENTION TRADE until price locked in. When trading the your vehicle they will obviously low ball your trade. Be prepared to go elsewhere and negotiate below invoice and then trade-in.
Acura for RDX does not currently have any .9 or 1.9% but Acura/Honda can get you 2.1 or 2.2%APR depending on term of loan. Go at the end of month for best deals. Good luck

I did a cash/no trade deal. Not sure what you have to trade or finance. For an outright purchase: after you know exactly what you want, contact 10 of the closest dealers via email (General Mgr or Fleet Mgr - you can find them online). Make a lowball offer and see who will play ball. I got a AWD Tech with roof rails installed for $37,000 plus $399 dealer doc/fees (excluding taxes and tags). 2 of 10 dealers were interested. I haven't negotiated with floor saleman for last few purchases. Gen Mgr or Fleet Mgr are usually willing to meet lower offers without the song and dance. You have to be willing to drive a bit to pick up if your local dealer doesn't come in the lowest. You don't have to get it serviced by the dealer you buy from. Good luck.

We would be trading our 2004 Highlander. I am 90+ miles from the nearest dealer (Chicago) but there are multiple dealers in the Chicago area so there should be some competition.

Be sure to have dealer throw in the All Season floor mats, considering your weather location.
With that many dealers in your area you should get a competitive price. Don't worry if the RDX isn't in their inventory, they will do a dealer swap.
