    You could RE- try emailing 10/ 15 dealerships at the very end of this month Oct , 31st and not sooner asking each for another 800 dollars off above deal for the sale that day. OR wait a couple more months pricing will loosen up .

    Don't forget your state has a very high Doc fee charge . Always counter that charge by lowering your asking sale price. This may be your only room right now for price lowering negotiations...Good luck

    What is the MSRP?

    There is a $1750 dealer incentive on this vehicle.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

  • The MSRP is $40,475.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 119,942

    The MSRP is $40,475.

    Considering the $1750 incentive, they are asking for full MSRP.
    No, not a good deal. Especially considering an $800 doc fee.

    I'd want an additional $2800 off (5% of MSRP + $800 to make up for the doc fee).

  • That’s what I thought too. Thank you so much.

    The calculations look correct.
    The money factor and residual are correct.
    There are $2500 of incentives on this model, so it looks like you are still getting a substantial discount.
    What is the $399 accessories charge for?

    If you take this deal, I'd restructure it to not put up that big CAP reduction. Eliminate the $1849, and take the resulting higher payment (about $395/mo.)

  • Thank you so much for the response. The line item for $399 says Tech Accessories with no further details.

    Since I'm not in the market for a 2018 RDX or know your area's pricing , Here's my 2 cents.

    Your current offer for this demo is about 1400 below invoice assuming awd model ? Not sure if there's any finance/ buy rebate money dealer used to get to this price . If no rebate / incentive $$ were applied... Its a good deal, but you still may be able to due better with end of the year sales incentives for dealers. If you don't like to negotiate and no rebate money was applied buy vehicle.. OR

    Scenario #1- What I would do is email / call as many dealerships that your willing to travel to....to buy vehicle. Ask each dealer if they will sell you the same new model Acura base matching your demo price or beating the 34.9k price excluding taxes, tags, & doc fee. Tell all u will buy vehicle today holding with a credit card. If any dealer beats the demo price buy it...... Do not tell other dealers your 34.9k price is for a demo.

    #2. If your not sure of area pricing call / email 10 / 15 Acura dealerships last week of Dec. Let each dealer know you will buy said model for X price. (set your new target pricing when negotiating between 34.k to 34.9k ) if no dealer rebate money is avail. ) then holding with a credit card to secure deal......

    OR.... ask each dealership for there best price and let dealers know.... your buying at months end . Dealers that respond with pricing (34.9k ) or lower negotiate a couple of weeks till the very end of this month.

    Buying last 2 days, last day of Dec will give you the best pricing leverage. It is what I call the Super-Bowl of car buying. .................Good luck

  • Hi - looking at a deal on an 2018 RDX w/AWD & AcuraWatch - do you think there is any more room on this to negotiate? We do have a trade in so we need to put out some serious cash to not roll the debt into the new vehicle already. I'm comparing this to a 2017 Dealer demo model w/Tech package. We don't have to buy but looking to see how good a deal we can get at year end.

    38295 MSRP/Sale price
    + 495 pro pack
    - 3865 discount
    =34925 vehicle price
    + 1475.31 tax
    + 97.76 tax/title
    + 579 processing
    = 37077 total

    Thanks in advance!
  • Hi, I am new here and glad I found this forum before purchasing my first Acura.
    Can someone please tell me if this is a good deal for a 2018 RDX Base 2WD?
    Sale price $31,661.82
    OTD price $34,862.28
    Los Angeles / OC area. Thanks
  • @mtroadie, as far as I know, this is pretty good price. I am also looking for similar RDX with yours but OTD is 1k higher than yours. I'm in Houston, TX.

    Thank you for the response. I guess my number is not too bad then. I am looking to buy one in two weeks...can't wait! :)
  • I am new here and am wondering if I have a decent deal on a 2018 Acura RDX Technology package with AcuraWatch:

    MSRP: $42,500
    Sale Price: $37,700
    OTD: $40,629 (I don't have the breakdown of tax, title and doc fees)

    I live in Massachusetts. I would appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

    Your price is on the higher end of a good deal for a 2018 model. Wait till the end of the month 30th / 31st . You may shave off a few more hundred if you get more dealerships involved in pricing

  • I made last tuesday, 2018 RDX with technology. total 37,800 (including taxes 2100) in Dallas, TX. I would have made better deal, but time is constraint. No acura dealers ready to email their quotes. Honda doesnt want me to buy, they simply adding options to accord which i like it, but no options for $4K.
  • My biggest complaint on this one is, windy noise. please notice while test drive at lower speeds like 15 mph. I am scheduled to drive this weekend and waste another half day at dealership
  • I originally went to lease RDX, in texas, we need to pay tax at full price (about $2100). i changed my quote to buy-out price, in which the dealer doesnt want to honor as lease incentives are better than Buy-out.
    initially they agreed to sell me for OTD 38, 000, i later called them to reduce $200 which they obliged. so far happy with my RDX minus wind noise from driver side. GAP insurance $749, i dont know how it helps if we are not on lease.

    Congrats on the new RDX.

    GAP insurance might be useful, if you financed the full purchase price. But, $749 is a little pricey.

    Thank you. I received an offer of 7k off of the 42,100 sticker. I think it’s a decent deal and will probably take it.

    Pretty hefty doc fee.. are you in Florida?

    I can't see your Accord, but seems like you could sell a 2006 Accord in a day for $2500, no matter what shape it's in..
