    Hi 4myfamily,

    my post about my email was removed =(
    thank you so much for sharing everything! I emailed them and asked to get the same price!

    I think I will just go with it, since it is already $1600 less than what I got before!
    I need to buy tomorrow, since I will be in NYC during the weekend. Maybe you can arrange to meet with sean88 at the dealer at a specific time, since there seems to be no other way of getting in touch with each other. Hopefully, you guys can negotiate a better deal!

    Thank you again.

    Hi Sean,

    I need to buy the car tomorrow (Friday) since I will be in NYC during the weekend. I think you can arrange to meet up with 4myfamily and you two together can negotiate a double deal in person with the dealer (since I try to post my email to get in touch with 4myfamily but my email address was deleted).

    Good luck on getting a better deal!

    Thanks for checking the 2014 model for me. Do you know the price for the FWD basic 2014 RDX and the 2013 basic? The 2014 tech is too expensive and I think its not worth it. Thank you!!!
  • tubulustubulus Posts: 17
    Has anyone gotten close to the price above near NYC? (Basically about 37000+taxes).

    Thanks for the heads up on the $34K OTD Pohanka deal in Chantilly, VA. Unfortunately, they ran out of their entire 2013 RDX stock. However, after some negotiations over the phone with another dealer, was able to get either the 2013 FWD with Tech for $34K OTD or the 2013 AWD with Tech for $35.4K OTD. Both were excellent deals, but ended up choosing the AWD based on the available color selections. $32.9K before fees and taxes for AWD with Tech was hard to pass up.

    Wanted to let you know was able to purchase a new 2014 RDX for $34,100.00 including Destination at the end of June 2013
    The only additions that I paid were taxes, transfer of plate fees and dealer doc/ prep fees of less than $400.00
    Please negotiate hard... I am sure that the dealer still made plenty of money.
    I shopped, haggled and negotiated and by the way..found the car in the color of my choice.
    This did not include the Tech package and was readily available in NJ.

    What dealer did you end up with?
  • sean88sean88 Posts: 6
    Hi,UVASKEME, thanks for your post. Could you let me know where do you get your final deal and do they still have the 2013 model please?
    Thank you.
  • How is 36000K OTD for for 2014 RDX AWD - Base.
  • OTD doesn't mean a thing when we

    1. Don't know the state sales tax rate
    2. You don't post the doc fee(s)
    3. TTL varies from state to state.

    Recently picked up our RDX AWD Tech in MD

    Is this the best deal? Who knows, but we are happy.
    Car is great.
    $37,007: 2014 AWD Tech
    $895: Destination fee
    $261: wheel locks and mud guards installed
    $200: dealer processing fee
    $301.90: Registration and title fees
    $2,543.75: (6% MD Tax)
    $41,208 = OTD prior to trade in

    I would not say this is a deal.
  • mikietmikiet Posts: 9
    Doesn't sound that good to me either. You mean to tell me you could not get them to at least throw in the wheel locks and mud guards and eliminate the destination fee? Guess if your happy that is all that matters. When I bought mine in May I got them eliminate destination fee and throw in mud flaps, wheel locks, remote start, cargo cover & fog lights!!! Was there negotiating for 4 hours and they knew we would walk if we didn't get the best deal.
  • I'm so thankful I stumbled upon this Forum. I'm not usually one to post in forums, but, I am currently in talks with my local Acura dealership and negotiating the purchase of a 2014 RDX. I've found a lot more confidence in my negotiations thanks to this forum, but I'm still not making a whole lot of progress. Wanted to get some feedback on where I sit with them currently - and would love any tips on how to get the price down from you pro negotiators...

    The model is a 2014 RDX FWD Base and the dealer equips every model on the lot with:
    Roof Rails ($650*)
    Body side moldings ($259*)
    Splash guards ($138*)
    Pin Stripe
    Appearance Protection Package
    Wheel Locks ($56*)
    *prices from Acura website

    Currently, I'm at $36,500 + 5% MS State Sales Tax = $38,325 OTD

    With the included equipment does this help justify their unwillingness to budge? Any suggestions?
  • Pinstripes? really? :sick: :sick: :sick:

    Run away from that dealership unless you really want those add ons. As you have seen on this forum, most of the best purchase prices were achieved by emailing the internet sales manager of various dealerships to receive a quote for a specific model. No unnecessary trips to the dealership and very little negotiating. It seems that many times the best (lowest) price was not realized at the "local" dealership. You may have to travel to another city in MS or nearby state-FL to get a better price but sometimes the savings ($1,000. or more) will be well worth it. A few posts up, you will see that a forum contributor paid less than $33,000. (plus taxes and tags) for a 2014 RDX FWD. Good luck.

    I'm currently working with a dealer on a 2014 RDX FWD TECH (graphite over ebony).


    Base: $39,115
    Dealer fee: $599
    Other fee: $19.50
    Discount: - $2,500
    Trade in: - $5,000 (2005 TSX navi / 164,000mi)
    Graduate program cash: - $500
    Free cargo tray

    I'll have to pay 4% AL tax when I get home, but I'll be financing $31,733.50 @ 1.9% for 60 months.

    Payments will be $554.xx and I'll have the out of pocket taxes to pay (at least I won't be financing that too & I have it in the bank to pay it).

    Even without trade & grad program, you're looking at less than $38,000! You aren't even getting the tech package with your "deal." Think you need those pinstripes and roof rails? They look pretty, but aren't worth the $. Skip the add on from the dealer and check our Bernardi or HandA and do it yourself.

    Price net of destination & doc fee: $38,050

    Threw in cargo cover, mud guards, and body side molding.

    I could have gotten a few hundred lower on the car at a couple other dealers but I had a trade-in, and this dealer gave me the best price on that. For what its worth a few dealers let me walk out having offered a few hundred lower net (ie car-tradein) than I ended up with, so I am happy with the final result.

    I have to say the whole process (especially with tradein involved) is both infuriating and hilarious. Without fail every dealer started off offering me 20% below what I ended up getting on the tradein.
  • I am interested in buying RDX 2014 AWD with Tech in NJ (No add ons). One dealer quoted 37700$ without taxes/doc fee/registration charges. Is this good deal?

  • ltlladyltllady Posts: 27
    What did the dealer process for $200?

    If a vehicle is ready to be purchased and if the vehicle has things like wheel locks and mud guards installed, these do not have to be bought. My experience has shown if a buyer refuses to buy the vehicle unless they are removed, most dealers will simply write them off.

    The last three vehicles I bought, Honda and Acura, had a combination of wheel locks, pin stripes, or mud flaps. One had the window etch treatment some dealers like to use to pad their pockets. For each purchase, I told the sales person I did not want the added products. In each case the products were left on the vehicle at no charge.

    The reality is a dealer is not about to lose a sale because a buyer refuses to pay $200 -$300 for added products which cost the dealer about $25 or so.
  • tubulustubulus Posts: 17
    If that includes destination fee, that looks like a great price.
  • cms11cms11 Posts: 1
    Thank you for sharing your experience. Could you please provide me the name of the dealer and sales person.

    I bought a 2014 Acura AWD RDX w/tech pkg, tinted windows and wheel locks for $37500 plus TTL. I had trade in and they had given the same price what CARMAX offered. as someone earlier commented normall they star with 20% below what we finally get on the trade in.But I like the dealership I got my SUV. But is not from Mac Churchill.
    But anybody looking cars in DFW area don't go to Mac Churchill Acura, they are horrible treat customers like dogs. But when u go there they want to run our credits before finalizing the price. But if u want to see where is ur ballpark figure in getting car go there hassle with them, ends up by not buying from them. At the same time we will be able to know where the delaerships are able to honor our prices. IF we need to know what we get on trade in go to CarMax. there is a tax benefit too if u trade the vehicle from where we buy.

    Just picked up my 2014 RDX AWD from my dealer today. Paid $37.8k for everything including 8.875% taxes (figure without taxes is roughly $34.7k) but does not include registration. This was a purchase in Long Island, NY. If your looking for customer service this is not the place but they do seem to have the lowest price in ny compared to all the other dealers I went to. However, the service dept looks shadey, if ur looking to add anything I would do it else where. They will quote u a much lower price as compared to other dealers then with further discussion u'll find it's not acura parts but aftermarket. They will not tell u this but if u ask enough questions, u'll c. But to just buy a car, it's ok.
