2013 and earlier-Acura RDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I plan to buy a new 2012 MDX with tech pkg with an offer around $40000. Can I get a better deal than this? Thanks!
  • buyabuya Posts: 74
    Talk to a salesman yesterday and his price for me was still $5000 off MSRP. But things changed and I might need to use 40k++ mi a year, so MDX is not a choice for me now. Need gas sipping cars that last and not too small around big trucks.

    Check a few pages back and see the low prices ppl are paying for their MDX. Internet and end of month sale prices are better. Good luck on your purchase.
  • Can anyone share prices paid before tax on a 2013 rdx w/o tech?
    I am looking at buying in Nevada and was quoted $34,440- before tax. Seemed a little high.
    Thanks for the help.

    Ask if that includes destination charge of $895 which is a hefty amount. Be specific ask for the out the door price itemized. Good luck.

    I paid $33,540 for an RDX FWD with no tech or any other packages. This price included destination charge and a cargo tray (Can buy on the Internet between $50 to $100, depending on whether it has the Acura logo) but not tax, fees, or any other misc. stuff.

    This was 3 months ago in San Diego and the price was not the result of a hard bargain. Another local dealer quoted me essentially the same price in response to my Internet inquiry just a day after I bought this one.

    I was quoted 37500 (msrp 40315)is this a good price is for a 2013 Rdx AWD with tech in NYC?
  • rtc27rtc27 Posts: 13
    That is a good price. I bought an AWD with Tech a few weeks ago in Westchester for 37700. I was also negoiating accessories and trade., so for me the total price was my target. If just buying the car, the lowest price I received was from Ramsey Acura in Northern NJ - $37200.

    Good luck.

    I paid $33,500 for an AWD non-tech at Ramsey. Only fee was a $199 doc fee, plus the standard tax and DMV fees you pay anywhere.

    The actual quote was 36999 with a 199 doc fee which brings it to 37200. They seemed real nice to deal with, I just preferred dealing with someone closer to home and a guaranteed price for my trade.
  • Thanks for the information, wasn't KearnyMesa was it? I am currently working with them.

    If I am looking for a base RDX, any thoughts on how difficult it will be to get my hands on one? Dealer inventory looks pretty lean - am wondering if they only get a few to get people in the door and move them up to the more expensive / profitable models. Also, have heard complaints on noise on the 4-wheel drive model and was told that for the new RDX, it no longer has the super handling AWD but rather a 4WD unit made by Ford - any truth to the noise issue and the Ford rumor?

  • stickguystickguy Posts: 24,972
    supply varies by dealer. some carry base models, some only tech. and depending on where in teh country you are, so never order FWD and others rarely order AWD.

    But, if you look around your region, you should find a decent supply of non-tech models.

    THe AWD is made by Honda, not Ford. It is basically the next generation of what is in the CRV. No, it is no longer the SH-AWD system.

    I have a base AWD, and don't notice any noise related to having the AWD. or much noise at all, maybe the tires on certain road surfaces, but generally it is very quiet.

    Actually, I am not sure if I have ever even engaged teh AWD yet. If I did, it was seamless!

    Thank you for your input. My other vehicle is a Honda with AWD and it does not make any noise so perhaps the critical comments I heard were from someone who had a unique issue.

    If anyone has suggestions as to Acura dealers that are good or not so good in the NJ area, any info is appreciated.

    You are very lucky living in NJ as some of the lowest prices paid in the USA for a 2013 RDX and posted on this forum were for vehicles purchased in New Jersey. If you go back to posts from June 2012, you will see some of the prices paid. Here is a internet quote sent to me in June after an email inquiry from Acura of Denville, NJ for a base AWD model (no tech package) which included destination:

    (2013 Acura RDX): MSRP - $36,615 Your E Price - $33,685.

    Good luck. It's an incredible vehicle. I replaced a 2008 Honda CRV with my 2013 RDX and am very pleased.
  • stickguystickguy Posts: 24,972
    Where in Jersey? I can cover you for north and South!

    I also had that quote from Denville (and at one point, they offered it at $300 less, but they had very few in stock, and nothing we liked). The other place that is very aggressive with internet quotes is Ramsey, which is where we got ours. They also had a much larger supply to choose from, and seem to be trying to corner the market.

    If you want south Jersey (where I live) I know the big dealers down here too.

    Interesting (well, to me) story. 2 weeks ago I was going upstate NY on the thruway, and ended up in a row of 3 2013 RDXs, and all 3 of us were bought at Ramsey. Long odds on that!

    Denville or Ramsey would work. I shop online and am looking for the best price from an ethical dealer - sleazy dealer is a non-starter for me. Will go to South Jersey if the price makes the trip worth my while.

    Thanks for the info.

    Yes, it was Kearney Mesa Acura. The sales person agreed with my first offer so it took just 5 minutes for the whole thing. My first offer was based on a phone negotiation that led to an unfortunate drive down to the dealership further south.

    Kearney Mesa Acura was relatively low key and the arrival of the car and the signing of the paperwork were smooth and fast.
  • stickguystickguy Posts: 24,972
    prices tended to be cheaper up north. And those would be the 2 dealers to go to. Ramsey was fine. no gimmicks, and Denville has a good reputation too. And you can work it out price wise before hand.

    Thanks stick.

    Has anyone ever heard of Legend Leasing out of Brooklyn? The seem to have good prices, write their leases on the manufacturers leasing paper - in this case - Honda / Acura Financial. If legit, I would think they are high volume low overhead operation. Thanks,
  • patm70patm70 Posts: 20
    Go to They have a 4.9 rating out of 5.0 after 98 reviews. It seems most customers are very pleased with their lease prices and service. Here's a link

    Good luck.

    Any recommendations for dealerships/sales reps/managers regarding 2013's RDX, AWD w/Tech or others in Chicago area? I had nurtured a relationship with sales person and manager only to have days of wasted time...went there 4 times, many phone calls and emails only to be extremely disappointed when it came time to close the deal they refused to honor what they both had said regarding matching quotes of others. ns/emotorcons/emo_bawling.gif BBB should know about them.
  • edits and censors negative reports on dealers that pay for advertising. It is not reliable.

    Tuesday of last week (10/16) was my second visit to the Acura dealer closest to me in the Baltimore/DC area. The first visit was some weeks back where I just drove the 2013 RDX and 2012 MDX for the first time and decided the RDX was the car to go with. We didn't have any pricing discussion during that first visit.

    My salesman gave me these numbers after his first and only visit to his Sales Manager. I didn't counter or anything since I wasn't buying then. I think MSRP was $40k-something or $41k-something.

    2013 Acura RDX AWD Tech Package:
    + Tags/License Plates (a $100 to a few hundred I think, can't remember)
    + Taxes at 6%
    + Processing ($200)
    + Freight ($895?)
    = total price

    Here is some info for this model and trim for the DC area:
    "Configured Price: $40,315 = $39,420 (base) + $895 (Destination Fees)"
    Potential Savings: – $1,171
    Target Price: $39,144
    Factory Invoice: $38,160 = $36,965 (base) + $300 (Regional Ad Fees) + $895 (Destination Fees)
    Average paid: $39,602 = $38,407 (base) + $300 (Regional Ad Fees) + $895 (Destination Fees)

    There are no manufacturer incentives or cash rebates currently being offered for the 2013 Acura RDX.

    So at the current price, I'm a few hundred dollars above Invoice and a grand below the average paid.

    changing the zip to a Baltimore zip (21250), the only thing that changes is that "average paid" is $80ish more at $39,681 = (the base being $38,486).

    Changing to the Bay area zip (94608), the target price and factory invoice price change $50 more, and the average paid goes up around $200 to $39,817.

    I changed to the Bay Area because of sy_rdxbuyer's very recent post from 10/22/2012, where he says he got his (I assume 2013) "RDX FWD with Tech package" for "$36614 + taxes + license fees in Bay Area - California." That means I should be able to push $2 grand lower. I've only browsed through about the last 20 posts in here talking about pricing that was paid. I will look through further to see what else was paid before then.

    Planning on going back late this week or early next week and will bring my trade-in up also (a 2008 Lexus IS 350). So that's another factor to consider.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but the price you gave was for a 2013 RDX correct? brand new? You're almost 2 grand under invoice and $3 grand below what the average paid in your area is according to ( ) so thats' why I just wanted to put a post in double checking.
  • It doesn't look clear as to the trim level being discussed. One price shows AWD w/tech, the other FWD w/tech. The ~$1400 for AWD could be the difference in the strange numbers. Also not clear on the ~$900 dest. charge.

    No need to discuss taxes and title, as these vary from state to state. The number to compare for like models/trims is sales price including destination fee. THEN you adjust for your taxes and fees.
