    Hi all, does 41k for awd-base seems like a fair price at this time. This includes destination fee. My another friend got a 2013 model at 38k when 2014 was announced but not released. So with that as reference, it seems there should be bigger discounts on 2014 models even though 2015 is not a redesign like 2014 was.

    Also, would 2014 supplies run out at this time or there is still a secret cache of cars to sell off.

    Acura sales are in a bit of a slump so you'd think the discounts would be bigger eh? But MDX sales are up around 31% (it's the sedans that are suffering the sales slump). So you're competing with other buyers who want one and may be willing to pay a little extra, even though the 2015s are out. And while your friend got a good deal, he's driving the "last generation" MDX.

    Secret cache? I don't know if they've converted all the lines to the 2015s down in Alabama (there may just be one line and the 2014s may be "done). There could be quite a few 2014s in inventory sitting at the factory lot or in some holding yards at various ports and terminals I suppose, but I doubt it, given how well they've been selling. You can do an inventory search and get some idea - there's 105 2014 MDXs near LA today, and 75 2015s listed at Edmunds. So it looks like the pipeline for the 2014s may be starting to dry up.

    You can check the TMV and start enjoying your new ride now while you have a good selection of colors and options. B)

    (and yeah, $41 looks lower than the LA TMV price I checked).

    Thanks. One more point: my friend had received 4 yr maintenance services free (as part of the quote itself, didn't need to bargain for it). Is this something relatively common in Acura dealerships. The person who gave me quote didn't seem very interested in offering extras.

    Probably was another incentive to help sell cars that his dealer offered. Be curious to know if it was Acura Care or some third party service contract (that would be cheaper).

    Typically you get offered the "extras" by the finance person who'll be writing up the contract, but if you want it, one tactic would be to estimate how much it's worth to you and ask the dealer for an OTD quote that includes it and all your taxes and fees.

    The profit on service contracts, from what I've read, is 50% or more, so when you get a price, you could offer half and hope to get it for ~30% off. Or you could shop around and buy Acura Care at another dealer. Or you can compare the price to your expected expenses by checking the Edmunds Car Maintenance Guide and decide it's not worth it to you. (I guesstimate ~$1,000 worth of service is required for the first 60,000 miles, but your dealer may charge more than what our estimates say the services are worth).

    Purchased a 2014 SH AWD with technology package for invoice (exact invoice price as calculated on Edmunds) from Autonation Acura near Houston - great experience. Exact color and combination that I wanted and invoice price lower than the other three local dealers without the nonsense add-ons either. Very pleased with the MDX and experience.

    Looking for 2014 MDX AWD Tech in Long Island NY and Montclair NJ area. What are recent prices?

    Will pick up my 2015 AWD MDX Black/Parchment Tech w/ Entertainment Package this weekend. The price is $47,400 + tax + doc + plate. I will trade in my car and got 0.9% 36 month finance paperwork done (because 0.9% is over this Thursday). I think it's a great price so far in Delaware and Maryland area. I checked most of the dealers and some of them only 2014 same model at this price or higher.

    Just bought a new 2014 advance and entertainment package for $50,830. Feel like it was a pretty good deal. Love the MDX, was looking at a 2014 highlander as well. Also, very nice but it just didnt handle as well and they werent willing to do much negotiating.

    I am looking to buy 2014 MDX AWD in NJ/NY Area. Can some share Recent prices and dealer information.

  • After doing some due diligence, I'm armed with pricing from one North NJ dealer for 2014 and 2015 MDX AWD/Tech (very good quote), headed to another dealer tomorrow. Looks like the current pricing spread between 2014 and 2015 is appx $600. The financing spread of 100 bps (0.9% 2014 and 1.9% for 2015) is marginal if you look at the amortization schedule for the life of the financing. I'll update later this week.

    Got quoted by dealership in SoCal for 2014; 2014 Acura MDX, AWD TECH ENT, MSRP:$51,460, $47,654 quote plus TTL. Sound fair for a 2014?

  • So here we are Oct 2014 and we bought a 2015 AWD Adv/Ent a few weeks ago for my wife. I'm thinking I now may want to get a 14 AWD Adv/Ent and am wondering what a leftover should cost and perhaps a CPO with under 5000 miles one owner. There are a few around. Thoughts?
