    Normally, I would say that is a great price for a 2014 RDX FWD with Tech as invoice is $36,750. with destination. However, do all Florida Acura dealers charge a $799. dealer fee and $199. Electronic Registration Filing Fee?
  • Regarding the 2 fees, $799 dealer fee and $199 Electronic Registration Filing Fee ... what are considered normal as these 2 total 1000, would 500 in total for both be "normal and ordinary" ?

    What kind of fees are paid in other states ?

    My dealer in KY charged a $499 dealer fee, and $62 for license/registration/etc. The only reason i paid those was i negotiated an OTD price i felt comfortable with and let them figure out how to split it up with fees vs price of car etc. They could have charged $2000 dealer fee for all i cared as long as i ended up paying what i negotiated in the end.

    Any reason you're not going with a new 2013 so you can take advantage of the great pricing? Bound to be a few left around your area, at least within shipping distance to the dealer. You could probably get the same thing for around $37000 OTD.
  • It appears on truecar.com that the price difference of 2013 vs 2014 is only 500 more for the latter. That being so, for my offer, it should be possible to get about 1000 off the price or closer to 38385 OTD, here it is again

  • The prices on truecar aren't representative of the deals people have been getting in the past month or two. Before I bought, i went through the last 15 to 20 pages of this thread and made a spreadsheet of prices people actually paid. For the 2013 FWD Tech, in my spreadsheet i recorded a $34,400; $33,000; $34000; $33,500; $33,800; $34,200; and a $34159. These were all before TTL. One dealer told me they had an additional $2000 rebate from the manufacturer to clear out the 2013s.

    i got it from hidy acura in dayton, OH

    by the way, what kind of gas are you guys putting in the car?

    I have been told mid grade (89) is okay but some people say nothing but premium (92+)
  • I have been putting in premium because that is recommended (but not listed as required) in the manual, but many put regular (87) in and claim they don't notice a difference in HP or any engine knocking. It's the same engine as in the Accord, and that uses Regular. I just want to go by the manual recommendation.

    , but many put regular (87) in and claim they don't notice a difference in HP or any engine knocking. It's the same engine as in the Accord, and that uses Regular. I just want to go by the manual recommendation.

    1) I wouldn't depend on my ears to determine if low-octane fuel is damaging my car..

    2) Same engine might not be tuned the same way... higher compression (for more power) needs higher octane..

    3) Like you... I trust the engineers more than the guy who wants to save $3/week on gas... while risking a $10K engine in his vehicle..

  • 1. You're right, however the manual states anything 87 or higher will not cause engine damage, but might cause reduced performance. My point was people who have been using it haven't noticed the reduced performance part.

    2. Same engine, same HP (+-2), same torque, same compression ratio.

    3. Agreed, i want to ensure that i'm doing everything i can to ensure the longevity of the engine, planning on holding onto the car for a while.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,923
    Regarding #2...

    If the two engines have the same specs, but achieve those specs with different octane requirements, then something is different about them...

    Just saying...

    Just saying....the Acura engineers you trust state in the manual that 87 octane will not damage the engine but MAY affect performance. Nobody I've read that used regular has noticed a difference. Actually I did read one post that said he could tell a slight difference off the line but many, many others have said they don't notice a difference in power or MPG.

    Acura warranties the engine for 70k miles. I hardly think they would say that if they thought for a minute that 87 octane would be a problem. It's just like Fords ecoboost. Two different HP ratings for regular vs. premium but it will run fine on either. Where I live, it's over $7 difference on a fill. Times 4 fills a month is about $30. Not the end of the world but if it works ok I have other things to spend my money on.
  • Is there any way you would be willing to share that spread sheet? That is exactly what I am looking to do: go in armed with the best prices to try and get the best deal possible.

    You can go lower. I got the same car for 35995 OTD. Then added accessories afterward.

    *IN Maryland as well.
  • scuba01scuba01 Posts: 29
    Thank you. Ending up going back and changing the exterior color. Color wanted is no longer available in 2013. Put a deposit on a 2014 for 36,685 plus tax, title.

    What dealer did you purchase from. Is OTD including taxes? That would be a great price.
  • crushed00crushed00 Posts: 4
    Rosenthal Acura in Gaithersburg.

    Yes. OTD is including Taxes. Email other dealerships and see if they'll match. I got them starting from 36,500 to 32,500 (just the price of the car (2013 RDX FWD w/TECH) over email not including taxes and other fees. Things got really tight, and I started to finalize OTD price over email.

    2013 RDX AWD Base

    MSRP: 36,815

    Offer: 32,890 + dealer fees 170 + TTL

    Is it a good deal? Not many 2013 base available in midwest.
  • mimi82mimi82 Posts: 5
    How did you negotiate down to 32,500? That is an awesome price. I live in Texas and am currently looking into purchasing an RDX. The internet price they quoted was 35,615. I would love to work it down to 32,500. This is the first time I will be purchasing a car on my own so any help on the negotiating process would help. Also, is it possible to get some free accessories as an incentive to buy the car? For example, I wanted to ask them if they would include a free cargo tray and cover.
  • mimi82mimi82 Posts: 5
    The car I am looking at is a 2013 Acura RDX FWD with Tech Package.
  • kmokatikmokati Posts: 2
    After reading about these prices, I finally bought my 2013 RDX FWD w/tech, graphite luster w/ebony interiors, last Friday. I am not sure if it is the lowest price but I was fairly comfortable with it.

    OTD - 36,500
  • crushed00crushed00 Posts: 4
    realcartips.com and I used Truecar.com as a starting point of price. Try Carwoo.
  • mimi82mimi82 Posts: 5
    2013 rdx tech package for 35,300 or 2014 tech package for 37,200. What do y'all think is a better deal?
  • rb001rb001 Posts: 13
    I would go for the 2013 and save the $1,500 since the two cars are identical.

    I recently got the 2013 Tech for $34,500 with a bunch of accessories. You might wanna try to negotiate a bit more.
