  • Hi inkblot007. Please see my previous post for an idea of what this truck's lease program is like right now.

    You can find its dealer invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

  • Greetings kitkat08. Acura's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2011 RDX Tech with 15,000 miles per year are .00033 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2012 model are .00107 and 55%.

  • Dear Friend,

    I am trying to lease an RDX for my wife for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year w/o tech. With MSRP of about $34,500, why is it so difficult to negotiate a lease for around $350 per month (without taxes, DMV, acquisition fees)? I just leased a 2011 G37x with prem and Nav for $380 per month with 15,000 miles for 39 months (MSRP is $43,000 and the TMV is around $38,000). thanks - very much appreciate your help.
  • Infiniti is supporting the 2011 G37X lease with an unrealistically high residual.. (60% on your lease, right?). That makes for a low, low payment.. I know, because my wife is leasing one, this month...

    The RDX doesn't have that kind of support from Acura, for a number of reasons..

    1) The RDX is a low-volume seller vs. the G37 being Infiniti's biggest seller.

    2) None of the compact SUV competition is offering low lease payments.. Actually, the October lease is about as low as the RDX has been in a year...

    Local to me, the dealers are offering $419/mo. with $1000 due at signing.... You might be able to negotiate a little better than that, but $350/mo. is not going to happen...

  • Thank you. Your help is very much appreciated. Here is the deal I negotiated for my wife: RDX with tech; 36 months, 12,000 miles; I traded in my 2000 Acura TL with 138,000 miles (I asked for $3,000 based on Auto Trader's appraisal of $3,082 sight unseen); the Acura dealer looked at the car but did not drive it. The monthly lease is $350 (does not include taxes). How did I do? Thanks again.

    Hi Car Man,

    Can you please answer a few questions for me? I'm looking at a 2012 RDX w/Tech MSRP $36,880 in Miami. What is the October MF and Residual for 12K Miles? What is good agreed price and monthly lease amount? They quoted me $470.00 per month plus tax ($32.90) with $1469.00 total out of pocket.
    $1469.00 = $470.00 first payment, $300.00 Tags/Title, $699.00 dealer fee. Is there an Acura lease origination fee too?

    I would appreciate your comments.

    Thank you,

  • I'd be happy to razcal1. Acura's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Acura RDX with Tech and 12,000 miles per year are .00107 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    If I was in the market for this truck, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over dealer invoice. You can look up this vehicle's exact invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Acura Finance charges a $595 acquisition fee on every vehicle that it leases.

  • Hi Car Man,

    I'm still shopping for a 2012 Acura RDX w/Tech. Looking for November 1st Residuals and M.F. for 36mo/10K Miles lease.

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks,
    Razcal1
  • Hi Razcal1. It would be much easier for us to evaluate this deal if you provided us with this truck's selling price. Do you know what it is. This is an important number for consumers to know because the selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them.

    Hi Car Man,

    Do you have the November Residual and Money Factor for a 2012 Acura RDX SH-AWD for a lease of 15,000 miles per year for 36 months. Could you give the numbers with and without the Tech Package?

    Thanks,

    Stephen
  • I certainly do Stephen. Acura's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 RDX SH-AWD without Tech with 15,000 miles per year are .00098 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of this truck with Tech would be .00098 and 55%.

    Hi Car_man,

    Can you please provide us with the December buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 RDX FWD Non Tech for 12,000 miles per year and 10,000 miles per year?

    Also some dealer still have 2011 RDX in stock, any benefits in term of lease to get 2011 instead 2012?

    Thank you for your help.
  • Hi Car_man,

    Can you please provide us with the December buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 RDX FWD Tech and non Tech for 12,000 miles per year and 10,000 miles per year?


    Thanks You

  • Hi ziffies. Through January 3rd, Acura's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 RDX FWD Non-Tech with 12,000 miles per year are .00098 and 59%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The money factor on the 2011 RDX is exactly the same, but the residual value is much lower...53% for the same terms.

    So you'd be much better off leasing a 2012 model.

    Acura is scheduled to introduce a new lease program some time tomorrow. Please feel free to check back with me in a couple of days if you'd like me to fill you in on what I was able to find out about it.

  • Greetings Lucky. Through January 3rd, Acura's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 RDX Tech FWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00098 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with only 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.
