Have you read through the posts? The '14s have been out for months.

Hey, the reason I'm going for the '13 model is coz I can get a good deal in them since they are leftovers. Both, the 2013 and 2014 are exactly the same externally. Why not buy the new '13 model and save a couple of thousand $.
Yes, I read thru the posts, but was looking for experiences from people in the so cal area. Thanks!

Thanks and good luck!

Hey Xian and everyone else,
How far in advance do you guys get quotes from dealers before actually making a purchase? I'm shooting for last week of September to make a purchase. Is it too early to get quotes from dealers? Should I wait a few more weeks before I start contacting dealers thru the Internet?
I have contacted a few dealers and have received quotes not that great. But as soon as I tell them that I intend to make a purchase at the end on September, they think I'm not serious about buying and I feel they start to ignore me.

#2169 of 2244 Help! Good Price RDX AWD/Tech?
Aug 22, 2013 (6:36 pm)
Hi. I'm so confused after playing the number games with four dealers by phone, email and in person . It's so hard to play their game. The final out the door price is $40,900.00 for a 2014 Acura RDX AWD with Tech. This includes tax, title & license , Texas tax rate is 6.25, destination fee $895.00, document fee $125, wheel locks $199.00, all weather mats, cargo liner, tinted windows $299.00, $895.00 gap insurance and the Acura care maintenance, I think the care maintenance is a $1500 value...so they said. I have a $5000.00 down payment and will finance $35,900 1.9 interest rate. I forgot to ask about the fog lights.... The salesman kept going back and forth to the manager three or four times. Credit was approved. We walked out when they would not budge lower than $40,900.
Thanks so much This forum has helped me so much, but this isn't a great deal is it? How can they sleep at night

$199 for a $20 set of wheel locks. NICE.
OTD price is too difficult to compare. Break it down line by line.
Truecar gave me a price of 36,400 for '14 AWD w/tech. Do you need gap insurance? really?

Great price. Better than me by $500 and I thought I nailed it here in California.

I would guess that you're not going to find any 2013's left at dealerships at this point. I think they blew them all out by June. Got a '14 Base FWD last month for $35.5 out-the-door after calling 12-13 dealers in OC/LA over the course of a couple days. Maybe not the best price compared to other prices paid in this thread from around the country, but am satisfied with it, especially with the accessories thrown it.
I think in general, the dealers aren't going to be as enthused about someone buying a month from now as they would be if you tell them you're ready to buy in the next couple days. Wait until mid-to-late Sept to start your conversations with them and really use the end of the month timing to your advantage. Some will be really motivated to make their monthly quotas while others won't.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I think it's a good deal you got. I also got offered the same as yours, and a few of them agreed to beat that, but i still have about a month before my purchase and hopefully it will be better next month. Gotta negotiate fog lamps installed. Shooting for 32.7K base with fog lamps installed and including destination, OTD about 35.7K
Is my expected price realistic? Could it be met? Any thoughts from anyone?? Would really appreciate some info.
