    Call Costco and complain. See if a dealer can withhold one particlular model from the Costco program or would that violate their agreement with Costco??

    Do not overlook the current RDX $750 lease cashback incentive. It is new and easy to miss.
  • Or maybe get the Costco quotes on a couple of competitors like the Outback and give them the 'I don't WANT to shop elsewhere; but I CAN'T overlook this price" ;) . Let'm know you're serious about buying.
  • The color is red, but the color doesn't matter

    Beautiful color: but would fit in better at my alma mater of SOUTH Carolina ;)

    I'm an Acura newbie and plan to trade in my 02 Santa Fe. I am being quoted an out the door total price of $38,374, not including my trade-in. This includes tax, registration, all-weather mats, fog lights, remote starter and cargo net. Is this good, bad, could be better? I'm in no rush to buy and I'm in Pittsburgh, PA. Any advice is appreciated for this first time car buyer. Thanks!!
  • You would need to back out the taxes and registration for those not living in your order for others to know what the actual selling price is.

    OTD means out-the-door. There is no OTD plus $3000 down. He said he negotiated the car for OTD, which logically means total sum $32,402 and of which they put a $3000 down (that he forgot to mention) to seal the deal and walk out the door.

    Great going Kohinoor!
  • Anyone here use the costco program. If so how did they go about giving your the pricing and if so what did you pay?
  • cev13cev13 Posts: 2

    Dealer Price I Am Being Given: $34,813
    Fees: $236.55
    Floor Mats, Remote Starter, Cargo Net & Fog Lights: $817.04

    TOTAL: $38,374.69

    No trade

    Unless you are in an area that has just one Acura dealer within a reasonable distance, I think that price is a little high. I got $2000 off list last fall when inventory still was pretty limited. You should shoot for $2500 off as they are also making a decent profit on the accessories you're having put on of which I had only mudflaps added to my deal. Don't be afraid to walk out. I think they'll come around with a better price.

    Was quoted $34K for AWD - Base model on RDX. it has wheel locks, door edge guards, and a product that applies to the exterior paint and interior leather as add-ons.

    Lease payment is $419; 0 down + TTL to be paid during sign off for 10K miles.

    Residual is 61% and MF is 0.00136

    is this right values to be considered as per MF/ residual.

    is this a good deal? can i get anything better...your experience can help me close this quickly

    I just got a price higher than yours 34,474 for a non tech RDX nclude the Wheel Locks, Cargo Tray, and Mud Guards. I not leasing but i dont think this should not matter on the price.

    So your currently doing better than me. But i believe other have gotten better than $3400.

    I did not know there was an interior leather add on. I thought the leather was standard.

    Have you tried the costco program? I tried and was told the they rdx is exempt due to its high demand.

    I am not buying unless i can get the price down below 3400. i am in hawaii. What area are you in?
  • I did not know there was an interior leather add on. I thought the leather was standard.

    Pretty sure the reference was to a 'product' that is applied to the seats and paint as a 'protectant'. Probably worth $20 but sells for hundreds. Not worth much unless you have a 'claim' down the road.

    That aside, it would be interesting to see how they calculate the numbers on a product shipped from Japan vs one made in Ohio. I know we 'all' pay for everybody's shipping; but Hawaii is a heck of a long way from Ohio.
  • I called costco.

    What Coscto rep told me is that if the vehicle and dealer comes up on there website it is not exempt and that they should provide you the costco pricing. If the vehicle or dealer was not part of the program it would not come up on there website.

    Hope this helps someone else going in trying to get coscto pricing.

    Costco me the would have someone from the advocacy group call me.

    Sounds like the dealer was trying to prevent me from getting the price which probably lead to little profit or commission. This leads me to believe that is a great price. I am going to explore other cars using the costco program. I like the RDX but turn off by the dealer / sales on the costco BS.

    Troy what is the supposed costco price for the acura rdx 2013 base or tech/ fwd or awd?
  • I dont know the costco pricing because they never gave it to me claiming the RDX was exempt due to the high demand.

    I believe there have been others here that have used it and got prices close to invoice. search this thread for costco.

    I am pretty sure if a good deal or at least looking into.

    Go to the Also here is a good article on the program:
  • cdeneocdeneo Posts: 5
    2013 Acura RDX w tech package fwd - 36470 + tax + doc fees
    2013 Acura RDX w tech package awd - 37765 + tax + doc fees

    Any feedback would be much appreciated - can I get a better deal?

    No additional accessories or trade in associated with this price.
  • That's about 500 high on the fwd and 850 high on the awd as compared to here on the East coast. IMHO Offer less.
  • cdeneocdeneo Posts: 5
    Thanks mlevinedc3 for the quick reply to my query.

    850 below 37765 puts it at 50 below the invoice @ 36915 for awd tech pkg 2013 rdx.

    Am I missing anything? Is there a destination fee on top of the 36915 on the east coast?

    Also is there a flat doc fee + licensing + registration? How are you seeing these #s being calculated on the quotes...

    Curious to know what color combo people have chosen for their acura. Mines is amber brownstone/ parchment

    Hi - I have a price quote of $35700(OTD) for a Base RDX AWD in NJ. Is this a good price? If I work backwards from this number the price of the vehicle before tax/title and document fee would be approx $32750. Is this a good price?
  • patm70patm70 Posts: 20
    The MSRP with destination for the base RDX AWD is $36,615. The invoice price is $34,436. So, if your figures are correct and the dealer will actually sell you the car for the $32750. quote, you would be getting the vehicle for $3865 below MSRP and $1686. below invoice. Sounds too good to be true and may be the lowest price anyone on this forum has paid if you get the vehicle for this price. You ask if it is a good price. Silly question- if you checked prices others have paid on this forum. Actually, it is an unbelievable price. Good luck.
  • I agree with patm. That is a great price possibly the lowest post here. Also kinda sounds to good to be true i hope its not but let us know.

    If i would be a buyer at that price. But sadly best price i got for the same car is $34,500. Over my budget.
  • stickguystickguy Posts: 33,365
    I paid $33,500 for a base AWD in NJ (but back in August), and was surprised to get it for that low. So 32.7 is amazing.

    2019 Acura TLX A-spec 4 cyl. (mine), and 2013 Acura RDX AWD (wife's)

  • funken_afunken_a Posts: 5
    I've tried Bellevue and Lynnwood and neither comes close to this price for the 2013 AWD Tech RDX

    I can get them down to $39,500 which does include a protection package, but they won't budge.

    I'll have to try Seattle

    Also accessories.. If there a better way to get accessories installed cheaper. Want roof rails, remote start, some cargo protections.

    With the 2014 MDX being announced next week, it should create more downward pressure on the RDX.

    $32.7k for a Base RDX AWD is more than amazing. It is unbelievable. You know how some salesmen are. They promise you the world over the phone to get you to come to the dealership and sit down at the sales desk with them then suddenly ( and conveniently) forget what price they quoted you. I will only believe it after the car is bought at that price and driven off the lot!! If he gets it at that price, it will be the lowest anyone who has posted in this thread will have paid for a RDX AWD.
  • patm70patm70 Posts: 20
    "With the 2014 MDX being announced next week, it should create more downward pressure on the RDX. "

    I disagree. The announcement of the 2014 MDX has nothing to do with the new 2013 RDX. You either want to buy one or the other. They are two completely different vehicles in two completely different price ranges.

    Would you say the same about a Honda CRV if a new Pilot was coming out?

    Actually he's getting it $791.00 below invoice you're including destination thats why you're figures are 1,686 below invoice. That's still an awesome deal don't get me wrong. I paid 35,196 for a tech FWD exactly $474.00 below invoice. They try to hit me with the destination fee I said no. But yes they quoted me 35,196 with Floormats, and wheel locks, and when you get there numbers change ur right. Thats why I stayed firm. Remember they make money with doc fees and other stuff. So if you're paying below invoice it usually is maximum 500.00 less, thats if you're lucky. Most pay msrp and possibly some discounts here and there. You know how it goes. What ever the invoice is here in edmunds you know the dealer get's it lower than that. There is always a good deal but never nothing free or that any dealer is going to loose for.
