My Take: Word has it that AHFC is offering $2500 rebate on their RDX leases now. Not a bad time to jump into an RDX right about now. Even Edmund’s TMV is showing at least $1000 under invoice sale prices. Personally I would shoot for invoice minus the $2500 rebate. That would make for a sweet deal. I’ll be looking at the base RDX since it holds a higher residual value than the Tech.

Remember, if you end up paying around $31455, the dealer pretty much leased you the car without a discount on their end. Always get the dealer to pitch in some discounts because rebates are not from the dealer, they are from the manufacturer. You want to get a little love from both parties here. Dealers may represent the manufacturer, but they are independently owned and operated. TMV is showing around $29,422 in Southern California.
