#414 of 2093 2008 RDX Tech in Jan 2008 paid $34,930 plus dealer options
Jan 15, 2008 (7:32 am)
FYI -- 2008 Acura RDX Tech package purchased January 2008 paid appx. $500 over invoice, total of $34,930 incl. delivery. This is $985 under Edmunds TMV on the week I purchased. Phoned several dealers, went with the dealer who gave me his best price immediately up front over the phone with no haggling (and it was better than the offers I got after much haggling on the phone with the sales guys who were "old school" starting high and bargaining down). In addition I ordered three Acura-website listed dealer-installed options with some bargaining needed on installation costs: roof rack, body side molding, rear park distance sensors. According to Acura, MSRP on these all together is $1174 plus installation, dealer charged me $1558 including installation -- Edmunds does not give any info on TMV or invoice on these options. Additional $250 to tint front windows. Figures do not include taxes or DMV. Offered choice of current promotions same as on Acura website -- 2.9% APR for 36 months, or 36 month lease 10k mi/yr with $1,995+tax due at signing (incl $1,005 cap cost reduction; website doesn't list residuals -- offered 53% residual for the tech package RDX, 56% residual for the base model; if leased have to pay 100% of all dealer installed options). My desired color combination not on the lot, no surcharge for locating it.
Hey Edmunds -- please start giving TMV prices on dealer installed options including estimates of fair costs for installation charges! Thanks!

Paid $480 over invoice. Nothing added to it. yet. I am very happy with my deal and can't wait for my car to get here, New Mexico.
thank u so much to all people posting, I had no idea I could make a deal for a car on my own. With all the info I had about the car and prices around the country I felt well prepared and the salesman who helped me was really nice.
Thank you Edmunds.com for such a great site

I paid 32K for the base including having a roof rack installed. Hope this info helps. I bought in CT.
#420 of 2093 Is destination charge "included" when talking "$X over invoice"?
Feb 05, 2008 (7:59 am)
For the posts stating purchase prices of $31,200 and $31,700, etc, is that INCLUDING the $715 destination charge? I'm asking since that would mean that the price is actually well below invoice. I'm guessing that these posters really paid $31,200+715, correct?
#421 of 2093 Houston Area RDX price quote
Feb 09, 2008 (7:49 pm)
Just test drove an RDX in Houston and really really liked it. Dealer quoted me a price all at invoice & dealer's cost for optionals. RDX tech invoice $34,640 (inlcuding dest. fee). Once I loeaded it up with wood grain, cargo net, liner, tray, backup sensor, wheel locks, trailer hitch, I got up to $39K inlcuding title & taxes. Is that pretty good, or can I do better than invoice? Seemed reasonable to me, but thought I'd check...

$2400 for options sounds like a lot. Do you really need all that stuff? What is the price break down for each part? You can probably save money by buying on EBay and installing yourself.

Very true. I actually listed all that stuff at the dealership so they'd give me prices for each one to take home and re-evaluate. For example, I know I don't want/need the parking assist, etc.
breakdown as follows:
Wood Grain - steering wheel: $202 (inc. installation)
Wood grain - trim panel: $147 (inc. installation)
Cargo net - $43
Cargo Liner $ 170.20
Cargo Tray $110.60
Back up sensors (inc. attachment and install) $671.50
Wheel locks $ 82.50
Trailer hitch $ 532.20 (incl. installation)
Not too sure on the difference between a cargo tray and the cargo liner??
