#2169 of 2245 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.

Thanks but OTD means nothing when we don't know what taxes fees and licensing costs are. 37,700 tells us nothing

Jadrie2 - I am looking to buy an RDX FWD with Tech in Atlanta. Do you know your price before tax, tag, title? Which dealership? Thanks.

Thank you to everyone on the forum for posting prices. It gave me great leverage when it came to pricing things out at the dealer and making sure my purchase price was fair.
My OTD was $39300, including a 6% MD tax, $190 title/tags fee, $195 dealer fee, and $100 all weather mats.
My dealer was Rosenthal Acura in Gaithersburg, MD, and my sales person was Kenneth Chang.
For all those interested, I also purchased a 2013 ILX Tech the same day for an OTD of $29100, with the same tax rate and fees and mat prices above.

Have purchased two new vehicles at Rosenthal. With research a good deal is certainly attainable. One observation, for both purchases Rosenthal reduced the agreed upon price to compensate for the dealer documentation charge. Clearly they were not going to let a deal walk for a $195 bogus charge.
