    Hi! How much was your destination fee?

    I just got a base model -black/black from Power Acura in Torrance,CA for $36,883 with $250 gift card from Homedepot. It seems you got an even better deal. Did you get any accessories for your new MDX? There is a seller on ebay selling the OEM sport running board for $395 and the OEM tubes for around $450 (Shipping included.) I went with the sport running board. All weather mat ($90) and body side molding ($185)

    may be like you said, the window etching is a scam, but I got $5000 additional insurance if you got stolen. plus the sale price I got, I use this to tip the salesman.

  • Friends....I would like to know some experts help in buying an 2004 MDX touring with RES & Nav along with side steps & sproiler ..this has 30k mileage and got an offer for 25k from a private it a good deal ?? Please help.
  • Son, if your car is stolen, the $5,000 extra insurance will be little consolation for all the headaches you are about to endure. As for tipping the salesman... forget it. They are the scum of the earth and don't deserve one extra penny.

    1st of all you are being pretty harsh. I have no affiliation with the auto industry but calling people the scum of the earth is uncalled for. I presume that you work for a living like the rest of us. I guarantee that whoever you work for makes a profit or they do not stay in business.

    FWIW, I always tell them upfront that I am not interested in the old "Rust and Dust, Mop and Glo" stuff. I am also looking for a Base on and looking at app $37,300 plus PA tax and tag. No other fees. So far as I'm concerned, in the current market that is a pretty fair price based on the difference I see between Edmunds TMV and real world selling price.

    Hello All:

    Found a 2005 MDX touring with nav & RES w/ 38K miles. Dealer (toyota dealer) asking $23,900. Looks and drives great, but missing the nav disc. Is there anything else I should look at before making offer?

  • fair enough. it was a bit over the top for me to call the car dealers scum (i've had some bad experiences with one of them) and i guess they are just doing their job. that still doesn't give them the right to slap me and dump my wife out of her chair.

    That is an extremely high lease price you have been quoted. Could you provide more information such as if it included sales tax?

    At full MSRP (window sticker price) a lease a new '08 MDX Tech would be approximately $675 per month with just the security deposit and no additional funds down. This assumes the .00197 money factor for those with good credit.

    It sounds like your dealer is trying to rip you off. Even in a popular market you should be able to acquire the MDX Tech for approximately 2-3% over invoice price, which would put the payment (again with no money down and good credit) at under $600 before sales tax on a 3 year 36K lease.
  • I am currently working on a deal for Base MDX plus accessories (Cargo cover, roof rails, cross bars, runiing boards, back up sensor, etc). The dealer is adding labor in the price of these so that something that is listed for 582 (sensor) comes out to $895. Can you tell me your experiences with buying these accessories. Also anything your experience with the backup sensor. Thanks

    I just joined this forum and without reading all previous posts (since they are a lot), I was just wondering if anyone had gotten a good deal in Houston. I was just quoted $38.8K for a new MDX (no Tech). Would be interested to compare with others, and also know about price quotes of MDX w/ Tech. I am not interested at all in sport or entertainment pkg.
  • don't get me started about my horrible experiences with Houston-area Acura dealerships....
  • jmpage2jmpage2 Posts: 262
    That seems high, being over 3% above invoice price. I imagine you can do better if you are patient or if you are willing to travel further to get the car with a regional dealer vs. a local one.
  • jimmy2xjimmy2x Posts: 124
    Agreed - I'm looking at about 37.5 in the Philly burbs.
  • *** grammar police ****

    Farther vs. Further
    farther: used with physical distance
    • The farther we drive, the more I long to stretch my legs.
    further: used with abstract distance or depth
    • Elvira decided to investigate the matter further.

    therefore, you would have to be willing to travel FARTHER to get the car with a regional dealer vs. a local one
  • I dunno if its harsh or not. Personally I think lying for a living is a pretty lowly career choice. Everyone has to make a buck but.... To put it in perspective i think the decision of the industry to sell their cars in this way is not consumer friendly. Why should someone pay 5400 dollars more then i did for the same car just because they took the salesman's word for it that its the best price he can give them for the car?

    I don't see how it benefits the manufacturer and it def doesn't make it a fun way to buy the car.
