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.

Dealers do not make money on the destination fee. That is part of the MSRP price and is charged by the manufacturer to cover the actual cost of shipping the vehicle to the dealer. Of course any dealer attempting to charge a secondary destination fee is one I would avoid as such a practice is likely indicative of a less than ethical sales philosophy. If a dealer is pulling such a stunt I would wonder what else they are up too.
Documentation fees are essentially part of the selling price which includes dealer profit. Such fees certainly do not cover any dealer cost nor are they mandatory in any way. Buyers should consider such fees a component of the selling price of the vehicle. That fee certainly increases a dealer's profit.
Dealers discovered the documentation fee gambit many years ago to deceive unsuspecting buyers into thinking they actually pay less for the vehicle. Just goes to show how dealers really view their customers.

2014s will probably not come out until September timeframe. So any markdowns so to speak on the 2013 models won't happen until probably August. Then again, if the RDX stays hot and the 2014 doesn't have many improvements, the release of the 2014 won't affect pricing on the 2013 all that much. Usually not too much changes the second year of a model at Honda/Acura and the third year is when they do some upgrades and major changes. It basically depends a lot on how much inventory they have as to whether dealers "deal" or not.
#1878 of 2248 2013 RDX or 2011 MDX

The price of 2013 RDX and a CPO 2011 MDX is pretty much same. What would make a better buying sense?

Too much money rdxer1 for a lease. You should lease that car for 349.00 a month.For 584.00 a month and 2k down might as well buy

I am in Maryland and just leased a non tech RDX For $508 - 15k mi per year.
Negotiated the price to 33,200 and dealer made the first Monty's pmnt of $508. I did not pay out of pocket for anything, added to the negotiated price. Money factor is vey low so it made sense

Ok but did you see all of add ons and including tech? If you added the 2k down it would be about 640 a month all in..but i think we are not comparing apples to apples...anyway..im strongly considering the nontech and just mounting an ipad mini for nav

Three fifty for a $40K vehicle? Where do I sign? I'd love to pay 'only' 12-14 grand to drive a $40K vehicle for three years!
Acura's no/no deal on the FWD Tech is $500/mo for 36. Add 40/mo for AWD, figure accessories and extra mileage and his/her deal is only off by the down payment, IMO.(Also depends on how sales tax was figured in)
(S)he should offer the monthly pmt but with nothing down...they'll counter with $1000 down and (s)he'll have to decide.
