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.

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..

I have got costco pricing from other cars i am looking at via email but not the rdx. I found that it was pretty close to invoice or below and a pretty good pricing.
I can totally see dealer try to steer you away from the costco price if its really good and not wanting to give out the price.
I think if you go through the costco website costco does some follow up so if you wanted to you could go back to costco and give them what the dealer gave you and probably have them check to see the dealer is BS on the costco price.
I am still working on my costco pricing.
Mar 20, 2013 (11:00 pm)
Not sure if this is the real costco price but this is what they told and showed me $35140. I got better pricing without costco for 34600 with an OTD of $3700. (tax here is about 5%. plus this dealer has 250 doc fee. and some DMV fees)
I also got costco pricing on a fully loaded Mazda CX 9 which was really good actually below invoice. OTD would be $35,500.
Personally like the RDX but my wife likes the CX9 more than the rdx mainly because it has power liftgate and more space. the only reason we ended looking at the RDX was we intially went in to see the MDX but it was over our price point.
Its my wife choice so based on the above price she gonna pick the CX9 more care more features and less money.
Does not seem like the deal with Acura here will go much lower. I ask edfor a 36000 OTD and they said they could not do it.
I am not in a rush i was kinda hoping the price of the RDX would drop with a future release of the 2014 model or maybe if the 2014 non tech would add power lift i could get my wife to like the car more.
Any feed back welcome.
