Wife and I went to Houston area Acura dealer today to purchase 2008 RDX Base (Polished Metal Metalic). We have been doing internet research for months and we have a good sense of what price is fair. We offered $30,800 (including destination). Immediately after seeing our offer, the salesman looks up at us, walks over to me and slaps me across the face. Then he lifts the back of my wife's chair, dumping her out and onto the floor. He then scampers outside and lights up a cigarette. We were mortified. I am considering writing a letter to Acura about this treatment. Could somebody tell me if my offer was so low that I deserved that treatment? We were planning to ask them to throw in a roof rack for free but we never got to that point in the negotiatios.

I just picked up a base RDX in the NY area for the following lease deal:
Drive off of first payment and DMV
15K miles per year
Tax in payment
477 per month
The lease was calculated on invoice plus about 200 dollars.
I hope that is helpful.
Car did great in this am snow storm.

The Acura dealership in my area (Western WA) quoted $32k for a 07 pre-owned RDX with 14k miles, no extras. I'm passing.
Now I'm considering the MDX.

which dealer did you go to?
Any idea how much will be the insurance premium? I guess we have to buy full coverage, right. thanks.

I got mine from Acura of Wantagh (on Long Island). I didn't check on insurance premium. You will need some type of minimum coverage per the lease agreement. To me it was never any different than the type of coverage I would get whether I was leasing or buying. If you go there, ask for Tim. He was very straight forward with no "games". He gave me that price with very little negotiating and I picked up the car with no "surprises". Just tell him that you want to the standard Acura lease deal and you want it calculated on a car at invoice plus about 200 dollars. Good luck.
