$32.7k for a Base RDX AWD is more than amazing. It is unbelievable. You know how some salesmen are. They promise you the world over the phone to get you to come to the dealership and sit down at the sales desk with them then suddenly ( and conveniently) forget what price they quoted you. I will only believe it after the car is bought at that price and driven off the lot!! If he gets it at that price, it will be the lowest anyone who has posted in this thread will have paid for a RDX AWD.

"With the 2014 MDX being announced next week, it should create more downward pressure on the RDX. "
I disagree. The announcement of the 2014 MDX has nothing to do with the new 2013 RDX. You either want to buy one or the other. They are two completely different vehicles in two completely different price ranges.
Would you say the same about a Honda CRV if a new Pilot was coming out?

Actually he's getting it $791.00 below invoice you're including destination thats why you're figures are 1,686 below invoice. That's still an awesome deal don't get me wrong. I paid 35,196 for a tech FWD exactly $474.00 below invoice. They try to hit me with the destination fee I said no. But yes they quoted me 35,196 with Floormats, and wheel locks, and when you get there numbers change ur right. Thats why I stayed firm. Remember they make money with doc fees and other stuff. So if you're paying below invoice it usually is maximum 500.00 less, thats if you're lucky. Most pay msrp and possibly some discounts here and there. You know how it goes. What ever the invoice is here in edmunds you know the dealer get's it lower than that. There is always a good deal but never nothing free or that any dealer is going to loose for.
#1867 of 2028 Lynwood, Bellevue, and Seattle WA RDX w/Techpricing

Here's what they are throwing at me
All of the Lynnwood RDX's have a protection package installed. Wheel Locks, Door edge film...
I was only able to beat them back to $39,800
The salesman at Bellevue said his invoice price was $38,100.00, and he could not and would not be able to get me that price. I'm guessing I could of negotiated $ $38,800
Seattle was similar. Upper $38's low $39's
Sales tax + doc and fees runs 11% out here. Frustrating, I so dislike
talking with car salesman

Maybe try the coscto auto program and see what price you get.

I i woud think the arrival of the 2014 MDX would drop the price of the remaining 2013 MDX models. But I am thinking this has little effect on the RDX.
Anyone wanna guess when the 2014 RDX will be out? Also do you think this will help lower the price point of the the 2013 RDX?

I can't even find a leak of info on the 2014 RDX, as I was hoping it would have even better MPG.
But the RDX is a HOT Seller and getting the deals is obviously getting harder.
SO in my opinion I don't see the announcement of the 2014 having any real effect until the 2014 is actually showing up in dealers lots

I am finding the Costco program to be a joke. You have to travel to the dealer to see the price.
one dealer brought out a laminated spread sheet and pointed to his Costco price which was $39, 500. How do I know that really is the Costco price.... They are supposed to show an official Costco document, but if that document is in the hands of the dealers 1st then they have the upper hand, and manipulation is still a possibility.
I am pretty sure I can get the price lower then that, but not much lower. The biggest problem is the 10% on top to cover the taxes and the fees and documents. WA Sales tax is high 9.5% - 9,8%, but we have no state income tax so you can't complain

I think you are right, destination might have not been included in that price $32.7k
Bought RDX AWD Base last month in NJ for $33500 incl destination with wheel lock,spash guard + fogs ( $450) + $399 dealer/doc ( no trade in )

Of course Karn remember one thing dealers make money mainly on Doc fees and destination fees and of course the car sale but not a whole lot in most cases..
