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.

Why do people keep calling Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti luxury brands? I'm not being snobbish. Those Japanese "luxury brands" are basically the same cars as their non-luxury counterparts -- Toyota/Honda/Nissan -- but tweaked with higher quality in some areas and added comfortable options and accessories in std features. Essentially the buyers are driving Toyota/Honda/Nissan but conditioned to think they're driving BMW/MB! What's the deal there? Those luxury line cars sold their way into the brand category by leasing? And the lessors support the claims of their cars being luxury brands? Sorry, a nice car is a nice car, and why pretend it's a luxury branded car? Those Japanese cars are trying to redefine "luxury" category with their reliable, dressed up non-luxury cars by price fixing and snobbish handling of customers seem quite obvious, don't they? Let's be precise in the referencing terms and call Lexus/Acura/Infiniti "luxury line (Japanese) cars" to differentiate their comfortably/luxuriously appointed reliable cars from the established "luxury cars" that offered more in combined quality. If people continue to call luxuriously equipped cars luxury cars for whatever reasons, then cars such as RR, Maybach, Bentley, Maserati, etc. will have to be called Ultra Supreme Vehicles. That's a mouthful people!

alvares, Can you please tell me which dealership gave you this deal of $35,196 on RDX with Tech package (just the name and city)? I have been trying in Texas for a few weeks, but the dealers here are at least $1700 higher. Appreciate your help.

Hello hm2013 the dealer where I bought the ACURA RDX FWD TECH was in Florida in Fortlauderale called Rickcase Acura. But listen you still save even if you buy in another state. I was going to buy the RDX in Church Falls Virginia for same price all I had to do is pay the $500.00 transport fee and still save money, but eventually got the price down in my area.
