    so, igiban1, what specifically is the MDX transmission issue you mentioned in an earlier post? i know about 10 people with older MDX's and none of them has had a problem like that....yet?

    That's a pretty good price for a 2007 but if you look around a little you will find 2007 with the same options and about half the miles for about $6,000 more. Most 2007 are going for about $33,000. Myself I would look around more and find one with less miles. Granted it's an Acura but that's still a pretty good amount of miles and there are some expensive maintenance items that are going to need to be done like a timing belt replacement. That could run about $1000.
  • Given we are up to almost 1000 pages, can someone post what the sticker and invoices are for base, tech, entertainment and advance packages?? Or a link to where we can find that?

    I am looking to buy an MDX Tech in Westchester, NY, wondering if anyone here has bought or looked? Acura of Westchester really pushed buying instead of leasing. Quoted me 45,300 @ 2.9% to finance, or 46,715 to lease. These seem high compared to some figures I've seen posted here... Any advice or direction, much appreciated...
  • lhh, just look at the mdx tranny thread. Nay, if you have bot it don't look. Which years' mdx do these 10 people you know have?
  • lhhlhh Posts: 35
    igiban1,
    ok, (gulp) i'll take a look. friends' mdx's are mostly in the 2004-2008 range....
    lhh

    check edmunds.com for invoice and msrp on all mdx varieties. look under "new cars" section...

    Thanks for the feedback. I have decided to pass on that vehicle for two reasons. The high mileage and the fact that I really don't need the nav or rear entertainment. I am going to look for something that fits my needs better without all the extra option but less mileage at a similar price point.

    Any opinion on what a very good price would be on a 2007 base MDX with 40 - 50k miles? I have read this entire forum and looked at lots of sales prices from other sites. It looks like $25-$27k would be a really good price. Any feedback?

    Thanks

    Thanks a lot, Ihh! That's very helpful! And good recommendations. The only hurdle I am having now is that I have a car to trade in, and I will lose tax benefit on the trade in value of the car (CA tax on the full value of purchase merchandise, not on the net value of new and trade-in car).
  • I live in Westchester too and got a costco membership quote for 2010 MDX with tech package of 43,300. Hope this helps.
  • RE: waqntanmdx1

    MDX + tech

    $46,715 for the lease is the MSRP !!!
    $45,300 does seem a bit high. Edmunds TMV has it $44,060 (at least a few days ago) The "average" price reported in this forum for a 2010 Tech is about $43,800 (if you believe everything you read, this post included :-) :) ).
    Invoice+dest is $42,919. So, the costo quote in another post here of $43,300 is about $400 over invoice, not a bad placde to try to negotiate down from...
  • Please email me at nikravesh@gmail.com. I just got a great deal on a MDX in Jersey. MY sales person was amazing.

  • My purchase began with Costco pricing. When informed of the resulting price, I got up and thanked them for their time. I indicated that the Costco price was available next week or next month, so no need to buy today. If thay wanted a deal today, it would have to be lower than even Costco.
  • dvricedvrice Posts: 70
    Reading through the forum, the best pricing I saw on 2009 MDX base models was between $34 - $34.5k. Most of these deals were in December and early January.

    For the remaining 2009s out there, would you expect dealers to match this same price of $34k or potentially go even a little lower?

    The reason I ask is that 2007 and 2008 models with low mileage are sellling for $29-32k. It would certainly be worth $2k to get the 2009 brand new vehicle.

    Does anyone know of dealers with a large inventory of 2009s remaining?

    has anyone who has recently bought an mdx noticed how it is chewing through the gasoline? i knew that the milage was not great, but i'm amazed at how quickly it goes through gas--i'm averaging 13.4 MPG around town. i can practically see the gas gauge move!
    lhh
    ps igiban1, i am really loving the all season mats and cargo tray. you must get those!
  • 13.x MPG on premium?? Do you stop and go too much.... Maybe I should just get the mats and tray and forget about the car :). I know you got matching colored mats but can you picture black mats look sharp on taupe or parchmenrt?
  • lhhlhh Posts: 35
    yes, 13.4 with premium. and yes, i do stop and go a lot, but no way to get around that. do you think i need to keep putting premium in this car?
    despite the milage, i still think you should get an mdx. not many good alternatives. i think that black mats would look sharp with the taupe but not with the parchment.
  • Hi lewis3. In reading the posts in this discussion over the past several months I've noticed that at first dealers were not willing to provide much of a discount on the new 2010 Acura MDX, but dealers in most of the country have changed their tune quickly. Generally speaking, it seems like substantial discounts can now be had on this truck everywhere except on the Western U.S. where the supply / demand dynamics are different and dealers are sticking to much higher prices.

    My $0.02.

    Anyone know of any dealers with new 2009 base model MDXs still in stock?
  • Hi Car_man, when you mention "substantial discounts", can you quantifiy that, and compare to how much you are seeing off from invoice?
  • lhhlhh Posts: 35
    ok, igiban1, i read through a lot of thread on tranmission issues and the mdx. after reading through it all, do you feel that acura has fixed the problem in the 2010's or not? will it keep you from buying one?
    lhh
  • We are looking to purchase a 2010 MDX base model. Although we haven't gotten down to the nitty gritty of the haggling process yet, the best price we've been given so far is $41,500. I am curious if anyone has purchased in the Dallas area, and if so what did you manage to get off the MSRP? Thanks!
  • Would it have concerned you? Now I have not seen much complaint from 07+ mdx so that's a good sign. But then they might be just too young to be sick. 10 mdx got a new tranny. Hope that's better but only time will tell. Anyway, it's not like any other brand would for sure fare better these days....
  • Okay, how much is TT+L on a 2010 Acura MDX?? I told a dealer that I want to walk out without spending more than 39,000 on a new base model MDX and he said that would make the sale price around 36. Is TT+L really around 3,000 dollars?? Thanks.

    That totally depends on your tax rate. In Colorado the tax ranges from 4.1% to 9.5% depending on what county you live in. You need to research your tax and title fees for you individual area.

    the cry for a class action law suit in the transmission thread is concerning to say the least. but, as you say, the 2010 does have a new transmission and wouldn't you hope that honda would have figured out what the problem was, with 10 years of data? wishful thinking, perhaps. but, as you also comment, would you feel any better with any of the competitors?...seems that there are issues with other makes, too....
  • was just wondering if anyone has any info on buying a vehicle out of state? Say buying in Nevada and driving back to Cali where i live to avoid the sales tax. My wife and i are going to get the MDX this year and i was thinking if i could save about 3500 bucks. Anyway, just thought i'd post up here for comments before i started digging on the net for info. Thanks
  • If that worked, noone would buy a car in California again! They will get the taxes with registration.
  • carrera993, what are the freebies thrown in on your $43500 mdx? mats, tray and locks or just some of them? BTW, what's your OTD price (in either 9.75 or 9.25 tax rate)?
  • When you go to register the car, at least in the state that I live in, that's when you pay the sales tax. So you could buy it in Nevada, but when you go to register the car in California, you've got to pay CA sales tax -- I'm pretty sure that's how it works.
