    Run away from that dealership unless you really want those add ons. As you have seen on this forum, most of the best purchase prices were achieved by emailing the internet sales manager of various dealerships to receive a quote for a specific model. No unnecessary trips to the dealership and very little negotiating. It seems that many times the best (lowest) price was not realized at the "local" dealership. You may have to travel to another city in MS or nearby state-FL to get a better price but sometimes the savings ($1,000. or more) will be well worth it. A few posts up, you will see that a forum contributor paid less than $33,000. (plus taxes and tags) for a 2014 RDX FWD. Good luck.

    I'm currently working with a dealer on a 2014 RDX FWD TECH (graphite over ebony).

    Specifics:

    Base: $39,115
    Dealer fee: $599
    Other fee: $19.50
    Discount: - $2,500
    Trade in: - $5,000 (2005 TSX navi / 164,000mi)
    Graduate program cash: - $500
    Free cargo tray

    I'll have to pay 4% AL tax when I get home, but I'll be financing $31,733.50 @ 1.9% for 60 months.

    Payments will be $554.xx and I'll have the out of pocket taxes to pay (at least I won't be financing that too & I have it in the bank to pay it).

    Even without trade & grad program, you're looking at less than $38,000! You aren't even getting the tech package with your "deal." Think you need those pinstripes and roof rails? They look pretty, but aren't worth the $. Skip the add on from the dealer and check our Bernardi or HandA and do it yourself.

    Price net of destination & doc fee: $38,050

    Threw in cargo cover, mud guards, and body side molding.

    I could have gotten a few hundred lower on the car at a couple other dealers but I had a trade-in, and this dealer gave me the best price on that. For what its worth a few dealers let me walk out having offered a few hundred lower net (ie car-tradein) than I ended up with, so I am happy with the final result.

    I have to say the whole process (especially with tradein involved) is both infuriating and hilarious. Without fail every dealer started off offering me 20% below what I ended up getting on the tradein.
  • I am interested in buying RDX 2014 AWD with Tech in NJ (No add ons). One dealer quoted 37700$ without taxes/doc fee/registration charges. Is this good deal?

    Thanks,

    What did the dealer process for $200?

    If a vehicle is ready to be purchased and if the vehicle has things like wheel locks and mud guards installed, these do not have to be bought. My experience has shown if a buyer refuses to buy the vehicle unless they are removed, most dealers will simply write them off.

    The last three vehicles I bought, Honda and Acura, had a combination of wheel locks, pin stripes, or mud flaps. One had the window etch treatment some dealers like to use to pad their pockets. For each purchase, I told the sales person I did not want the added products. In each case the products were left on the vehicle at no charge.

    The reality is a dealer is not about to lose a sale because a buyer refuses to pay $200 -$300 for added products which cost the dealer about $25 or so.

    If that includes destination fee, that looks like a great price.

    I bought a 2014 Acura AWD RDX w/tech pkg, tinted windows and wheel locks for $37500 plus TTL. I had trade in and they had given the same price what CARMAX offered. as someone earlier commented normall they star with 20% below what we finally get on the trade in.But I like the dealership I got my SUV. But is not from Mac Churchill.
    But anybody looking cars in DFW area don't go to Mac Churchill Acura, they are horrible treat customers like dogs. But when u go there they want to run our credits before finalizing the price. But if u want to see where is ur ballpark figure in getting car go there hassle with them, ends up by not buying from them. At the same time we will be able to know where the delaerships are able to honor our prices. IF we need to know what we get on trade in go to CarMax. there is a tax benefit too if u trade the vehicle from where we buy.

    Just picked up my 2014 RDX AWD from my dealer today. Paid $37.8k for everything including 8.875% taxes (figure without taxes is roughly $34.7k) but does not include registration. This was a purchase in Long Island, NY. If your looking for customer service this is not the place but they do seem to have the lowest price in ny compared to all the other dealers I went to. However, the service dept looks shadey, if ur looking to add anything I would do it else where. They will quote u a much lower price as compared to other dealers then with further discussion u'll find it's not acura parts but aftermarket. They will not tell u this but if u ask enough questions, u'll c. But to just buy a car, it's ok.

    Just bought 2014 FWD Base for $35,250 OTD (including 9% CA taxes) in Acura of Fremont. Got original offer through CarWoo ($36K OTD) and negotiated it over the email/phone.

    Hi Chubz,

    What dealer are you speaking of. I will be in the market for a 2014 RDX AWD with Tech over the next few months, and I am also on Long Island. What were your other experiences with dealers on the island. I would assume you did not get the tech package. Is that correct? Did you lease of buy?

    Thanks in advance for the info!

    I got an internet quote here in Bay area for Price $34253 and OTD is $37,707.89. I want to know what's the lowest price I can go in negotiating. If anyone got a good deal here in the Bay Area please share. Thanks!

    drjcool1,

    It was a purchase (not lease) from Valley Stream Acura (dealt with Ralph). I did not get the tech package, however, I did inquire on the pricing which they said would be an additional $3.5k on top of the base awd price (not including taxes). Since I wasn't looking for the tech package I didn't try negotiating, but I'm sure if you were really interested they could probably give you some sort of discount.

    I tried talking to a few dealers In LI & NJ & Westchester over the phone before I visited since they were some distance away, but I don't think they took me seriously as the prices they gave me was too far from VSA's quote (they were mostly quoting msrp...like I couldn't do the math on that myself). I visited Paragon in queens, but they just seem too eager to sell u the vehicle that they are just telling u anything u wanted to hear..didn't feel genuine. Same with another dealer in Brooklyn, forgot the exact name of the dealership.

    Lastly, just make sure when u do go.. Have a firm $ of what u want to pay and make sure u do ur math because I notice with VSA, they will throw numbers at u really quick and fast..but b careful they are not tacking on anything twice...again, emphasizing that they r not the happy sales people u normally see but at least u get good pricing and there's no sweet talking just to get u to buy.

    Let me know how everything goes... Good luck!

    Chubz

    Got offered this in southern California for the FWD Base:

    Base: $33,205
    (dealer fees included)
    Taxes + Fees $3,006
    TOTAL $36,211 Out the door

    I'm guessing since someone a few posts above me in Northern Ca. got $35,250 OTD, that this price is not great, correct?

    Hi, I just have a quick question for people who purchased the 2014 model on the backup camera. I noticed that when my camera is in normal or top down view I get a full screen view on the screen but when I switch it to wide view I only get a circle view where the 4 corners are blacked out. Is it just my vehicle or if this happens to u as well?
  • I just got an email from my dealer offering me incentives for the next 5 days. $3500 off the MSRP + 0.9% financing. That would bring the price of the RDX AWD with Tech to about $3600. Assuming they tack on $895 acquisition/processing fee, and then another, say $1,200 in taxes and tags, that would be OTD for $38,200. Good? Too good?

    How far your dealer from NYC?

    Thank you

    Were you able to get this deal done? Looking to purchase in the next couple days before month-end and having trouble on getting dealers to move off 38,000. I am willing to pay destination fee or drive if feasible (TN).

    Thank you!
