2013 and earlier-Acura MDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • jmpage2jmpage2 Posts: 262
    The 2.9 60 month deal was a regional deal that ended last week. There is no 2.9 60+ deal going on through Acura finance right now.

    If the dealer gave you 2.9 60+ at this time they would just make it up on the front end by making you pay sticker on the car.

    Hopefully we see some new deals announced in March that run through April. A lot of it is going to depend on how well MDX continues to sell with the economy cooling off.
  • I Finally bought the 2008 MDX / Tech PKG from Mike Harvey Acura (Burlingame) Bay Area, CA.

    I worked with Steven's Creek Acura and Sunnyvale Acura in the Bay Area as well but got the best deal from Mike Harvery Acura. This included the best base price for 2008-MDX-Tech as well as very good price for the Accessories.

    I paid $39,618 + Accessories + TTL.

    I plan to buy Warranty from Barnardi.

    I really appreciate all the input I received on this forum.

    Does anyone have info yet on March lease rates for the MDX?
  • I think it might be over, but you can still ask if they will offer it to you. They did offer a 0% option for either 60 or 72mths but there is 2 catches. 1. You have to pay MSRP and second is 30% down. Doing the numbers, 2.9% @ 60 @ invoice is still better than 0% @ 72 @ MSRP (see below). Initicing part of the 0% is the lower payments @ 72 but the 30% down kinda sucks. That's why I went 2.9% @ 60.

    example S/E pkg w/dest charge
    0% @ 72 =48710 msrp-14,613 down (30%)=48710 total cost after finance
    2.9%@60 =44302invoice-13290 down(30%)=46642 total cost after finance

    example Base pkg w/dest charge
    0% @ 72 =40910 msrp-12,273down (30%)=40910 total cost after finance
    2.9%@60 =44302invoice-12,058 down(30%)=39195 total cost after finance
  • Would anyone have any insight into a MDX leased in Northern New Jersey with

    I don't believe that's through Honda Finance. Sounds like some kind of deal your local dealer worked with a bank/finance company.

    I don't have to buy until May but I am interested in the March/April deals as sometimes they are about the best seen all year until the new models come out and dealers start blowing out the old ones.

    Right now it's between Acura MDX and Mazda CX9

    "... Acura reported February sales of 13,084 units, down 8.0 percent, based on the daily selling rate..."

    Feb 2007: 13,658 units / 24 days ~= 569.08 units per day
    Feb 2008: 13,084 units / 25 days ~= 523.36 units per day

    MDX sale:
    Feb 2007: 4,330 units / 24 days ~= 180.41 units per day
    Feb 2008: 4,545 units / 25 days ~= 181.8 units per day

    Anybody know ... How many Acura dealers are there in US ?

    I was planning on getting a MDX/Tech. Are you still shopping around?

    This forum has been quite helpful, so I thought I would post the fact that I picked up a base MDX last week for 37.500 + ttl & 2.9% financing over 36 month. At the end the negotiation focused on the trade so that always makes these deals hard to compare.

    In addition, just some food for thought: for those of you who are undecided about which car you are going to buy, consider the fact that for any vehicle or class of vehicles a base model will always give you the best value:

    I looked at CX9, Highlanders, Pilots. The fact is that if there are a few must haves on your list, such as leather, power seats, moonroof etc... any of these vehicules will reach a price range close to that of a base MDX already loaded with all the goodies (and more).

    Case in point, the MSRP of an equivalent CX9 (GT AWD Moonroof) is for instance 37.250 vs 40.900 for the base MDX. If you negotiate I think that these days you will come out with about the same discount off MSRP in either case. Also when you take resale value into account you would have spent about the same amount of money driving an inferior vehicule. Because there is just no denying the fact that the built quality and engineering of these two vehicules just does not compare. No matter the amount of options you heap on the Mazda, at the end of the day a pig wearing lipstick is still a pig (if you may excuse the expression, the CX9 is not that bad, it just does not belong in the same league).

    That being said, the best car is one that you can afford. Also, a base CX9 will still be a great value, will be much less expensive than any MDX and will compare favorably to a loaded RAV4 for instance. Now, in my opinion the best value SUV in the sub 30k range is actually the new (09) Murano. I test drove one and at 26+k for a base model (and trying to avoiding useless dealer adds on) it is a fantastic deal (drives great, strong engine, very nice interior). Now, add leather, a moonroof and a few options and you are back in the base MDX range...

    I've currently wittled down the herd to the CX9 and the MDX. Wife is starting a business so I'm looking to lease her a high quality, high safety, high reliability vehicle for three years with the plan to write a check and buy it at lease end if the vehicle has performed well over the lease period and then drive it another 5 years or so.

    Definitely resale is better on MDX. In my market the dealers all seem to be looking to get $1000 plus doc fees over invoice. I'm still shooting for invoice +$500 out the door pricing, but we'll have to see.

    CX9 isn't a bad lease option as residual is being propped up (52% on 3 year 36K lease I believe for the GT model) and the money factor is in the triple digits (.0008). If I went with the CX9 I would probably plan on turning it in at lease end and shopping again as I don't trust Mazda for long term reliability.

    MDX deals are "ok" but not great at this point in time. I was hoping we would see 2.9% 60 month financing (nation wide this time instead of regional) OR a lease promotion that took money factor down further. If either of these things happen in the next 45 days I will probably buy the MDX, otherwise it will be a bit of a toss up, with CX9 probably being $100 less per month for comparable equipment to MDX base model.

    Me too, looking for a MDX tech package. Went to Steven Creek and Sunnyvale Acura too. Could you please advise which salesman you deal with? Is the best price you have heard so far? My best quote is 41K. I assume yours includes destination charge and no other hidden cost. Please correct me if I get you wrong. I would like to follow your pace, perhaps in a week. Regards.

    Google maps finds about 430 entrees for “Acura dealer” under “Automobile Dealers Acura” category… about 8/state, kind of makes sense?
  • bugatibugati Posts: 14
    oiakou: thanks for looking up...

    Yes, avg 8 dealers per state does make sense...

    If taking the total sales and divided by the number dealers... they don't sell a lot.

    For Feb 08:
    13084 units / 430 dealers ~= 30.48 units
    4545 MDX / 430 dealers ~= 10.57 MDX

    A couple of weeks late, but here is the deal I got on a new Sport/Ent MDX with the following options:
    - Roof rails & cross bars,
    - Running boars,
    - Body side moldings,
    - Cargo Tray, cargo cover, cargo net,
    - All season mats, and
    - Wheel locks.
    Out the door price was $46,400 including the $715 Destination fee, options listed above (all dealer installed), and a $248 dealer admin fee. Not included is State tax or temp plates fees as I purchased out of State. Purchased in MA.

    Here's the breakdown:
    (S/E invce 43,587) + 250
    715 Destination
    248 Admin fee
    1600 for the new OEM installed options.

    Although this may not be an absolute rock price I feel it was a great deal. I was also extremely impressed with the serviced of the dealership I used. Absolutely everything was ready when I showed up to look at and purchase the vehicle. They didn't try to push any extras which was nice. A complimentary one-hour demo was provided to demonstrate how to operate the vehicles many functions including the Nav system, Entertainment, Handsfree, etc.

    I now have 500 miles on the vehicle and I love it so far. It only had 5 miles on it at pick up.

    Do you need to add 715 destination charge to 36300 or is included in there? I
  • jui116jui116 Posts: 2
    I got the quote from dealer for 37,229 including destination change for 2008 mdx base model. Does anyone get lower than this price in southern california dealer since car sales are slow. Thx.
  • jmpage2jmpage2 Posts: 262
    Dealer invoice on MDX Base model is $36,514 + $715 destination charge = $37,229.

    Acura hold back is 3%, so actual dealer cost is about $35,418, but it's unlikely most dealers will go below invoice.

    we purchased our base model mdx on 2/25....

    Acura by Executive, north haven, CT...

    37,200.00 incl. dest
    123 registration
    249 dealer fee
    6% ct sales tax
    2.9% for 60 months

    Love the car so far (600 mi), but we should've got the tech pkg. I now think its worth it for the extras you get, but no big deal.

    Also, just purchased roof rails, crossbars, door panels, and all weather mats totaling $640....will install myself this weekend.

    I purchased a new MDX Silver/Black with Tech package in MD. I searched around this region and I got the best deal from Rosenthal Acura in Gaithersburg. They offered me the top price for my trade in ( at least $1000 more than the other dealers) and I got the best deal for the new car also. I highly recommend this dealership . It was a pleasure to deal with the sales manager ( say Mr. LP ). There were no gimmicks or misrepresentation of facts. He offered me all help to narrow down my choice and followed up promptly even after my purchase.

    Thanks for the inputs from this forum
