Here's the info that you're looking for, amgrouchy1. Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Acura RDX Tech with 10,000 miles per year are .00215 and 48%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.
When negotiating your lease, make sure to take advantage of the $2,500 dealer cash that is currently available on this model.

I have been dealing with a few NY dealers on an RDX base model, no tech package. This is where I am;
Selling price $29840. 36 months x 15K a year, .20 per mile overage.
4995 down inclusive of taxes, all fees 1st month payment $418 a month. + dmv fees. Dealer said they could get me about $300 lower than this deal.
Sound good? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Drose, That sounds like a great monthly payment but the tax should be around 2500 which means you are paying close to 2k in fees which is a little high.
What dealer is this from, im looking for an rdx with NAV, wonder where they are on that?

I'm down to 4670 down at 418 a month. (That is an all inclusive down payment, taxes, dmv, first month etc) This is at Curry Acura in Scarsdale (or nearby- Central Ave).
The nav was about $70 more a month, give or take, which is why I went without it. Seems a little high when a GPS on the dash can do just as good.
I think I am going to go with this deal.

Just a comment. A GPS on the dash is NOT just as good. It won't work in Manhattan, the lower level of Verazzano, or Brooklyn-Battery tunnel. The built-in Nav knows your position even when the satellites are unavailable: it has access to the speedometer and a built-in compass. The rear-view camera is a great feature as well. The entire "all-in-one" look and feel (music quieting for nav commands, camera turning on when you switch to reverse, NO DANGLING WIRES) is certainly worth something. Whether it is worth extra $70 a month -- that's for you to decide.
As for the price, it seems too high given the current market conditions. I'm driving a 2008 RDX with nav for $469/month ($1300 down), inclusive of NYC taxes, leased in July of last year. People were still buying cars back then. Honda is bound to issue some insentives very soon -- if they haven't yet. However, I'm just an amateur, so please be free to dismiss my opinion.

I agree with drose, its the whole tech package. Im in the market now, looking at the rdx among others and the dealers keep trying to push me into handheld nav and dont seem to understand the backup camera is imperative while parking in NYC.
Drose, thats an awesome price, i was just quoted on Friday $599 w/tax for the same money upfront. I laughed at the guy. It makes no sense. Honda is offering the cash to dealer but the crappy residual and high MF are putting this car out of my reach even though its my first choice.
Where did you buy from?

Granted GPS is not exactly as good, but I'll give you hint; If you are the lower level of the Verazzano and your signal is lost, one end is Staten Island, and the other end is Brooklyn!
I signed the papers today, 4670 with nothing else added, 418 a month, base model rdx w/out nav. Curry Acura, Central Ave, Scarsdale. This was better than DCH in fishkill who wanted close to 5K uprfront. Also better than bedford acura. I think (hope) it was a good deal, but you never know.

Of course, Verazzano is just one example. If you are familiar with the area and see (before entering Verazzano) that the Nav takes you to Belt, you don't need a command to get there. However, if you are in an unfamiliar area, and the next turn is somewhere under a bridge or right after a tunnel, you are doomed. I know what I'm talking about -- I have used a Garmin for 2 years. On the other hand, like I said, if you don't think the conenience of a built-in NAV+camera is worth an extra 2.5 grand (70x3 years) -- that's your choice.
I tried Curry Acura and even gave them a deposit, but they failed to deliver a blue car like I wanted. I also had a good offer from Troy Park Ave Acura, but he couldn't find a blue car either. I finally went with a dealership 200 miles from NYC: Feder's Acura, the guy's name is Steve.

No problem, grouch. Acura's April lease program for the 2009 RDX is exactly the same as its March program was.
