2013 and earlier-Acura RDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • veesriveesri Posts: 1
    Got the base (non-tech) RDX from Davis Acura in Langhore, PA

    29500 + 1770 (6% PA tax) + 230 tags/fees = $31,500 OTD.

    No trade-in. Dealer also arranged finance at 4.9% for 48 months.

    Right now my dealer (Kearney Mesa Acura in San Diego) is offering me a lease on a Technology Package at $515/month 12k miles per year 36 months...

    That's with $4k down, including taxes, license, first month's payment, etc.

    Based on $33.3k price (including destination fee), plus $595 acquisition fee is capitalized, .00215 money factor and 47% residual. Need to verify, but Acura MAY be throwing $1500 in towards the down as we're turning in a current TSX lease, which would make my actual contribution to down payment $2500.

    Any thoughts on this? The sales price seems a bit high compared to folks saying that they're coming in <$32k as sale price...

    If my homemade spreadsheet is correct, if the sale price was right at $32k, my monthly would be about $472/month with the same cash.

    Also offered a non-tech package at $30.5k, same lease deal at $456/month and 4k down.

    keep haggling, as I am going to the same place. unfortunately the sales guy I had been working with over the last few months was cut recently.....

    $33.3 is high, read back through the pages and you will find much less, some even near $31.5

    $4k down is also high IMHO

    I'd agree that $33.3k + $595 seems high.

    Since I've found this thread ot be useful, I thought I would post our own purchase experience here.

    RDX Tech purchased from Acura Columbus on 4/28
    Negotiated price: $34950 - $2500 dealer cash = $32450 +ttl and doc fee
    We were coming off an MDX lease and had another $1500 loyalty coupon from Acura, making our final price $30950 + ttl and doc fee, or $33.3OTD.

    We also purchased the roof rack, which was $550 + tax installed.

    Try $32,400 and $0 down towards capitalized costs.

    That's with $4k down, including taxes, license, first month's payment, etc.
  • Has anyone negotiated a price for pre-paid scheduled maintenance on the 2009 Acura RDX/tech ? I'd appreciate info on prices.
  • hurls65hurls65 Posts: 6

    Are you saying 32,400 after the $2500 cash back (that my dealer is pretending doesn't exist). I assume yes. I've got another $1500 loyalty from Acura lined up, and I am assuming that you're not including that in the price.

    I don't think Acura has that. I thought the Acura Care was the same thing as Audi Care, pre-paid maintenance. Acura doesn't sell pre-paid maintenance and Audi doesn't sell extended warranties.

    The lack of extended warranties was one of the big things that turned me away from buying an A4 Avant.

    2007 RDX with 24,500 miles and tech package for $25,600 + tax and plates. Certified. Good deal? .
  • Doesn't sound that great to me. I bought my 2008 Tech with 17K miles for $26K AND I got a good trade. Granted it wasn't "certified" but still has the balance of the 50K warranty so who cares.

    CHICAGO - purchased a new 2009 RDX Tech (Grigio/Taupe) w/ 19" alloy wheels and kept the stock 18in wheels at no cost. Purchased in Chicago for $34500 - 8500 trade in (Jeep Wrangler) so 26K ... good? :)

  • sforzsforz Posts: 3
    well i have a dealer that will sell me a 2009 RDX with tech for $32,500 + tax and plates
  • t_bone1t_bone1 Posts: 3
    yeah that's about right, so I got the 19" wheels for $2k and kept the stock 18" wheels for the winter, they had the 19" wheels listed at approx $3750 on the sticker

    Can anyone explain why there are a bunch of new 08 rdx's along side the 09's. They must want msrp for all or no one wants them.
  • fred_1975fred_1975 Posts: 8
    I am planning to lease a 2009 RDX but I am still not sure if I should get the Tech pachage or not? The extra price (between $2k to $3k) I believe is pricey for what it offers. Considering that the GPS will be the main think I will use and I can buy it for approx. $200, I am thinking twice.
    Any suggestion is appreciated.
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,250
    How much should I pay for a new leftover 08 rdx base? If an 09 is 30k what should the discount be for the 08?
  • fred_1975fred_1975 Posts: 8
    where did you find the '08 version? I have an offer for the '09 for $27k (incl. destination)
  • fred_1975fred_1975 Posts: 8
    Sorry, I meant to say $29.7k
  • depdep Posts: 79
    New '09 base RDXes are going for ~28k-29k and I would deduct at least 2k for deprecation on an '08. If it is not totally new (anything over 200 miles) I would deduct more for that as well. Keep in mind that an '08 is already 3 model years old as MY10 is the current model year for many vehicles.

    The issue is that the dealer might not be able to sell it at this price in which case I would go with the '09 at the 28k price point and let another sucker take the '08.

    The TOTAL cost for scheduled mntn on the RDX for the first 50,000 miles would be something in the order of:

    Oil changes: 7 x $60 = $420
    AWD service: 2 x $100 = $200
    Tire rotation: 3 x $20 = $60
    Intake air filter and cabin air filter: 1 each = $50

    TOTAL: $730

    Just put your money in the bank and you will come out ahead.
