I live in CT and recently went through the hassle of getting a 2010 RDX and price shopping was WICKED difficult.
WITHOUT tech, my 2010 in Polished Metal Mettalic came to about $33.8k at Devan Acura in Norwalk, CT.
Greenwich Acura quoted me $33.6k. (doc fee $139)
Executive Acura in North Haven quoted me $33k. (Doc fee $400)
HERE's the catch on ALL dealers in the CT/NY/NJ area: the "document" fee.
I haggled them down to $139 on the doc fee, lowest I found anywhere.
Reason I went with $33.8k was that I got free oil changes on the LIFE of my 2010 RDX, and at $111 (incl tax) every 5k, that's a lot of saved money for me. That, and convenience of location and discounted service since I bought from them (~10%).
With a solid trade in, I'm pretty happy. . .
Only issue is my new RDX has a slight NVH in the seat belt around 2200rpm. . .think it needs a little rubber bushing or something, no biggie, just surprising given Acura's high QA.

Well I guess it is too late to tell you that you should have widened your search area and you probably would have saved $$$. Free oil is a good thing but if you are deligent you can get better prices even in pricey Fairfield County. I got prices from dealers 100 miles away and used them to negoiate with my local guys. I bought at Executive because they were willing to negoiate the price. My local dealer, Schaller in Manchester would not. So they lost the sale. So for one 30 mile trip to North Haven I saved over $800. I still use Schaller for service though so they get me there. Jay

They must not need to sell them, or there are enough people willing to pay MSRP.
$111 for an oil and filter change?
DIY cost is around $30. M1 at W/M ~ $22, factory filter ~ $6.

Oh I know I got taken to a certain extent. . .
Executive came down to $33k for the SH-AWD 2010 base. . .I paid $800 more, but I got discounted maitenance (10-15% on all major service), and free oil changes. . .
I used to do the DIY oil change when I was younger and had more time. . .now, with a wife and 120 mile a day commute, it's not worth it to me. . .I would pay the shell gas station to do it for me near my house, $15+oil ($50 for 5.1qt's)+filter ($6). . .$71 vs. $111 at the dealer, massive savings. . .
But I get those free now, and at 4 changes a year, the savings added up in my favor over any other dealers in the greater CT area. . .

Sure it's possible. Depends on your negotiating skills! Try Mike Harvey Acura in Burlingame. I'd give you the name of the salesperson I dealt with but it's against the rules. If you want to give me your email I can send you his info.

We negotiated a deal for RDX with AWD and tech package for $35K including destination charge at Acura dealer in Queens, NY. We probably got screwed on trade in though. We are supposed to finalize and pick up car on Sunday.

First read carbuyingtips.com for how to go about negotiating the best deal. I emailed every dealer within 100 miles to get the best deal. Inskip in RI had the best deals but there were deals in the Boston area as well. good luck, Jay
