Couldn't strike a deal for the Infiniti JX..and didn't really need the 3rd row. My wife loves the shape..
So we went with the 2013 Acura AWD RDX with Tech package:
Remote Start: $620
Total MSRP: $40,935
Negotiated down to $35,900
Got $5035 off MSRP savings of 12.3%
Negotiated OTD Price: $38582 (includes tax, title, doc fee, remote start)
0.9% for 60 months. zero down
Monthly Payment: $658 for 60 months

Congrats what dealer? Where?
You do realize the 2014's are out, yes? Did you try to deal on a '14?

absolutely tried on the 2014..no chance..of getting $5000+ off
There's is no difference between 2013 and 2014 so that's why I was okay with the 2013 model.

Good deal...we were split between the Jx aand the rdx too but decided on the rdx for the same reasons as yours. Will be picking it up for $35,800 without accessories here in the bay area with $39,500 drive out. Not able to find anything cheaper in CA. Good call on not getting the 2014, its a waste of money.
By the way which dealership did you get it at and where?

How do you contrast a 7 passenger $50K+ vehicle with a 5 passenger $38K? I don't understand

Maybe he didn't need the 7 passenger car and its simple to differentiate the two. They are both luxury vehicles and you can get the JX for a lot less than $50K. Since when is Infinity such a spectacular car? I certainly wouldn't want one. My family looked at everything and we liked the Acura best. We also have an Audi and I would take the Audi over the JX. Just my opinion.

you don't..my wife really wanted the JX but I was stuck between the RDX, Q5, or X3.
For the deal I got, RDX was the best buy. This doesn't mean that Q5 or X3 weren't nice, I just couldn't justify the price because I was barely getting anything off the MSRP.
JX: My wife loves this suv but when I test drove it, I found nothing spectacular about the drive. The only thing I love about this SUV is its looks.. The JX I wanted had the MSRP of $54180 and I wanted it for $49,000 OTD. They wanted $51,000 OTD..I said too bad and bought the RDX..
Now that my wife's had it for a couple of days, she actually loves the RDX.
I have a Accord EX-L V6 and my lease is up in May 2014. I am patiently waiting for the Infiniti Q50 to come out and hope to strike a deal on it next May.

In our hunt for an SUV, we went to check out the Infiniti FX37 & EX37. I really liked FX37 but it was too expensive as compared to the RDX. The EX37 felt much smaller, lower & in fact more like a bigger hatchback. But then we saw the JX35 and really loved the room inside the car mainly because of the option of a 3rd row seat with very easy access (as compared to the MDX or any other 8 seater SUV). At this point in our life, we really didn't need a 7 seater and also it was $10K+ more than the RDX. Hence we decided against it. A few years down the line we'll definitely get a JX35 instead of an MDX or a van.

I understand the '14 MDX is supposed to hit the dealer lot in a couple of weeks. I'm curious to see how the 2 LCD screens minimize the number of buttons. I only need an RDX but my wife wants the extra space of the MDX. Our '04 MDX only has 172K mi. and has been flawless.
