2013 and earlier-Acura RDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • Thanks to everyone who has contributed here. I was able to get what I think is a great deal on a 2008 RDX w/TECH.

    I am paying 34200 (inc. dest. charge) for a Blue/Taupe w/tech. With nothing (not a cent) down I can literally sign and drive either a 60mos 4.9% loan at 713. or a 36 mos 15k/yr lease (20201.40 resid which is 54% of MSRP, and .00189 MF) for 596. I am really leaning towards the lease as it seems to be a very good value for having the option to walk away after 3yrs or pay the resid and buy the car.

    Now if I could just find a decent way to figure out how you ceiling mount a dvd player in a leased car I would be truly set.

    I am buying the vehicle from Open Road Acura in New Brunswick, NJ. The experience was wonderful so far, and it was all because I went in with all the information in hand.

    Thanks,

    Tommy
  • When we were living in Birmingham, we only had one acura dealer that wouldn't come off MSRP on the 2001 Acura TL. I negotiated with one dealer in Montgomery and ended up paying a dealer in Gainesville, FL to drive one up (I saved $1500 by doing it that way). Unfortunately, the Montgomery dealer matched the Gainesville offer the day they brough it up which would have saved me an additional $150. You got to ask yourself how much is it worth to travel. Would you drive 2 hours to save $500?
  • Of course I'd drive 2 hours to save $500...imagine the extended drive back in your new RDX!

    As for me, I'm new here and EXTREMELY thankful for everyone's input and great advice. I'm in the market for either a GT/AWD CX-7 or posibly RDX w/ Tech. I've test-driven the former and thoroughly enjoyed it. Based on reviews here and motortrend, I'm sure the RDX will not dissapoint.

    After scanning these forums, I see people are getting near invoice, which would be ~$34k range, right? I just received the following "internet quote" from a local dealer in the South Bay (SoCal):

    "Dear Christian XXXX:

    I have just attempted to contact you regarding the 2007 Acura RDX you inquired about. Unfortunately, I was not able to reach you.

    The retail price of 2007 RDX (tech) is $37,165 and your special internet price would be $36,395 (including destination charges) + tax and licence.
    In case you get lower then this, let me know so I can try to either match or beat it. Please let me know how would you like to proceed.

    I look forward to speaking with you soon"

    $36,395 seems a bit high to me, what does everyone else think?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Ok, he just came down to $33,795 + tax and licence for an RDX w/ Tech...how does this seem?

    That's a good deal -- about $200 under invoice. I would jump on that. Most Acura dealers charge a $399 processing fee which is not negotiable, so take that into account when evaluating prices. Good luck!
  • Thanks c_hunter. I've yet to test-drive it, but hope it exceeds the CX-7.

    What kind of lease offers are going around? I've seen $2,995 out of pocket -- that also seems rediculous.
  • been quoted 33,900 including destination and $99 processing fee. Seems like a good deal for a RDx w/tech.

    Wash DC dealers are a bit more.

    Thoughts anyone.

    Any recent experience with Tech and non-Tech RDX purchases in Central Ohio?
  • Where in Va did you purchase? I'm looking @ Radley in Arlington for my RDX base......any help would be great....
  • What Baltimore dealer gave you that price?

    Would you please give us the name of the dealer?

    I bought from Priority in Chesapeake. You might want to talk with the internet dept at Pohanka Acura in Chantilly. They had excellent prices when I was shopping around -- generally invoice or lower.

    I don't think you are correct in telling the other people that their deals are unrealistic or that they are bottom feeders -- on another Acura forum I frequent, the going rate is typically $300-500 under invoice for base and tech RDX models right now. There are a lot more people on that forum, so we have more people reporting in with their prices compared to here. I paid $475 under invoice myself back in January, which was right in the range most other buyers have been paying. The discounts will likely keep getting better unless sales pick up in a big way.

    Don't give out bad advice or call people names just because you paid more; it's not cool. If you were happy with your price, and other people are happy with their price, that's all that matters.
  • I got my RDX base,carbon grey, from Pohanka for invoice last night,great vehicle really wants to run! I moved down from an MDX & I'm very pleased w/the interior space....The sales experience was impeciable.....

    Fair enough, but I got awesome service from my sales guy under invoice; he even delivered the RDX to me while I was selling my old car to CarMax. A good dealership treats all their customers well, and you shouldn't feel the need to pay extra for it. Most RDX buyers are getting good deals and good service.

    Most dealers give their sales guys a flat fee for any sale, so they do OK no matter what. A good sales person welcomes any new customers because they build their clientele.

    As far as pricing, everyone has their preference. For me, I had a number in mind that made the RDX a good value to me. Above that, there were other vehicles I would consider instead. You have to pay what you think is fair.

    I wouldn't consider fair deals to be greed and penny pinching; it's an open market with supply and demand, and educated buyers can decide where they want to fit in. I got a high VIN RDX fresh off the truck for $475 under invoice with minimal haggling and couldn't be happier with the dealer experience. I can't imagine any reason why I would *not* want to take that deal, or why I would volunteer to give them *more* money for the heck of it. It would be greed if I twisted their arm to go lower, but that was not the case.

    "Well the dealership is not profit motivated." Huh? :confuse:

    I don't know how a dealership is ever NOT profit motivated in a free market economy. Selling a car is not philanthropy, and neither is buying one.

    If you feel that sorry for the salesman, beat him up on price and then just give him 50 bucks out of your own pocket on the side. You'll most likely be ahead in the end that way, to boot.

    Put another way, you can tip a pregnant waitress more than a non-pregnant waitress more if that lets you sleep at night. That doesn't mean you should give the restaurant more money for the food.
