    Hi Chubz,

    What dealer are you speaking of. I will be in the market for a 2014 RDX AWD with Tech over the next few months, and I am also on Long Island. What were your other experiences with dealers on the island. I would assume you did not get the tech package. Is that correct? Did you lease of buy?

    Thanks in advance for the info!

    I got an internet quote here in Bay area for Price $34253 and OTD is $37,707.89. I want to know what's the lowest price I can go in negotiating. If anyone got a good deal here in the Bay Area please share. Thanks!

    It was a purchase (not lease) from Valley Stream Acura (dealt with Ralph). I did not get the tech package, however, I did inquire on the pricing which they said would be an additional $3.5k on top of the base awd price (not including taxes). Since I wasn't looking for the tech package I didn't try negotiating, but I'm sure if you were really interested they could probably give you some sort of discount.

    I tried talking to a few dealers In LI & NJ & Westchester over the phone before I visited since they were some distance away, but I don't think they took me seriously as the prices they gave me was too far from VSA's quote (they were mostly quoting I couldn't do the math on that myself). I visited Paragon in queens, but they just seem too eager to sell u the vehicle that they are just telling u anything u wanted to hear..didn't feel genuine. Same with another dealer in Brooklyn, forgot the exact name of the dealership.

    Lastly, just make sure when u do go.. Have a firm $ of what u want to pay and make sure u do ur math because I notice with VSA, they will throw numbers at u really quick and fast..but b careful they are not tacking on anything twice...again, emphasizing that they r not the happy sales people u normally see but at least u get good pricing and there's no sweet talking just to get u to buy.

    Let me know how everything goes... Good luck!

    Got offered this in southern California for the FWD Base:

    Base: $33,205
    (dealer fees included)
    Taxes + Fees $3,006
    TOTAL $36,211 Out the door

    I'm guessing since someone a few posts above me in Northern Ca. got $35,250 OTD, that this price is not great, correct?

    Hi, I just have a quick question for people who purchased the 2014 model on the backup camera. I noticed that when my camera is in normal or top down view I get a full screen view on the screen but when I switch it to wide view I only get a circle view where the 4 corners are blacked out. Is it just my vehicle or if this happens to u as well?
  • I just got an email from my dealer offering me incentives for the next 5 days. $3500 off the MSRP + 0.9% financing. That would bring the price of the RDX AWD with Tech to about $3600. Assuming they tack on $895 acquisition/processing fee, and then another, say $1,200 in taxes and tags, that would be OTD for $38,200. Good? Too good?

    How far your dealer from NYC?

    Thank you

    Were you able to get this deal done? Looking to purchase in the next couple days before month-end and having trouble on getting dealers to move off 38,000. I am willing to pay destination fee or drive if feasible (TN).

    Thank you!

    Where were you able to see this deal?
  • rcb4aurcb4au Posts: 2
    Done deal. I've been driving it for 2 weeks! Acura of Columbus (GA). Did everything via email or phone (including credit report) so when I got there, they checked my car out & we did paperwork and we're out the door in no time. Sales manager was a pleasure to work with. When we got to dealership, we were helped by a new salesman (Robbie, I think). For my deal to be his first ever car sale, he was great. Got the car programmed while we finished up with the finance guy.

    Good luck!
  • dizzie2dizzie2 Posts: 3
    Thank you!! I have contacted them and begun the negotiation process. I appreciate everyone's feedback. This car is for my mother, I bought my car last year using this message board. I truly believe noone should purchase a car without checking here first.
  • Dealer outside of Washington DC, so a few hours drive from NYC

    Hello - I just purchased a 2014 RDX AWD w/Tech package, and with what here is called the "Northwest Protection Package - mud guards, all-weather mats, cargo tray and wheel locks) for $37,900. That price included destination, and I paid an additional $373 for title/registration. OTD total was $38,273. Forged Silver Metallic with Ebony interior. This was at Acura of Portland, in Portland, Oregon. What I find really funny is when I originally looked at the car on their lot, there was an additional $3100 markup, which they called a "Regional Increase", so their retail was technically $44,000 plus! I called every dealership between Ashland, OR and Lynnwood, WA, and this dealer gave me the $37,900 price over the phone, and the closest other offer I got was $38,500. I spent about 1 hour at the dealership doing paperwork, and I was out the door. Very smooth, easy transaction.
  • I received an OTD price quote of $38685 for a 2014 RDX FWD Tech. Is this a good deal?Due to the timing of the year, I am not able to get a 2013 in the color and specs I want.

    In the market to buy a 2013 RDX base model in southern california. Need advice on the best dealership in the Orange County/LA area. Which dealers should I approach? What is the lowest price paid in this area? Can the dealer install fog lamps before taking delivery of the vehicle? I really need fog lamps installed on the base model, preferably before taking delivery. Any input/advice would be greatly appreciated. Would love to buy it before the end of September. Thank you guys!!
  • Have you read through the posts? The '14s have been out for months.
  • ap77ap77 Posts: 6
    Hey, the reason I'm going for the '13 model is coz I can get a good deal in them since they are leftovers. Both, the 2013 and 2014 are exactly the same externally. Why not buy the new '13 model and save a couple of thousand $.
    Yes, I read thru the posts, but was looking for experiences from people in the so cal area. Thanks!

    Hey App77,

    I'm looking to do the same as you in San Diego. Please update me if you get anywhere with quotes and I'll do the same.

    Thanks and good luck!
  • ap77ap77 Posts: 6
    Hey Xian and everyone else,

    How far in advance do you guys get quotes from dealers before actually making a purchase? I'm shooting for last week of September to make a purchase. Is it too early to get quotes from dealers? Should I wait a few more weeks before I start contacting dealers thru the Internet?

    I have contacted a few dealers and have received quotes not that great. But as soon as I tell them that I intend to make a purchase at the end on September, they think I'm not serious about buying and I feel they start to ignore me.

    Please advice!!

  • Hi, qooqoo,

    Can you post the dealer name and contact foR this quote? Thanks.

    Hi. I'm so confused after playing the number games with four dealers by phone, email and in person . It's so hard to play their game. The final out the door price is $40,900.00 for a 2014 Acura RDX AWD with Tech. This includes tax, title & license , Texas tax rate is 6.25, destination fee $895.00, document fee $125, wheel locks $199.00, all weather mats, cargo liner, tinted windows $299.00, $895.00 gap insurance and the Acura care maintenance, I think the care maintenance is a $1500 they said. I have a $5000.00 down payment and will finance $35,900 @ 1.9 interest rate. I forgot to ask about the fog lights.... The salesman kept going back and forth to the manager three or four times. Credit was approved. We walked out when they would not budge lower than $40,900.

    Thanks so much :) This forum has helped me so much, but this isn't a great deal is it? How can they sleep at night :(
  • $199 for a $20 set of wheel locks. NICE.

    OTD price is too difficult to compare. Break it down line by line.

    Truecar gave me a price of 36,400 for '14 AWD w/tech. Do you need gap insurance? really?
  • roadie5roadie5 Posts: 1
    Great price. Better than me by $500 and I thought I nailed it here in California.
  • chrischchrisch Posts: 3
    I would guess that you're not going to find any 2013's left at dealerships at this point. I think they blew them all out by June. Got a '14 Base FWD last month for $35.5 out-the-door after calling 12-13 dealers in OC/LA over the course of a couple days. Maybe not the best price compared to other prices paid in this thread from around the country, but am satisfied with it, especially with the accessories thrown it.

    I think in general, the dealers aren't going to be as enthused about someone buying a month from now as they would be if you tell them you're ready to buy in the next couple days. Wait until mid-to-late Sept to start your conversations with them and really use the end of the month timing to your advantage. Some will be really motivated to make their monthly quotas while others won't.

    Hey Chrisch,

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I think it's a good deal you got. I also got offered the same as yours, and a few of them agreed to beat that, but i still have about a month before my purchase and hopefully it will be better next month. Gotta negotiate fog lamps installed. Shooting for 32.7K base with fog lamps installed and including destination, OTD about 35.7K

    Is my expected price realistic? Could it be met? Any thoughts from anyone?? Would really appreciate some info.
