  • I am shopping around Atlanta looking for a good deal on a 2009 MDX with the Tech package. Dealers don't seem to be giving the same great deals that people are getting in Chicago or elsewhere. The best I have seen so far is $41000 including running boards and a roof rack. I've also been quoted for $40,500 without the running boards or roof rack. Has anyone received a better deal?
  • Just bought a 2009 MDX tech package from Ardmore Acura, $39,400 + tax tag and title, this also includes several accessories, all season mats, cargo tray and bike rack. I have seen some better deals on this site, however I have not been able to duplicate, just wanted to know some other recent sales on the tech package
  • Actually CarGuy75 looks fake to me. Few days back he posted a price that no one getting in the market. Looks like he is misleading to us.
  • I waited too long but after sitting on the deal for a couple of days I am getting 38600 + 810 (dest) + Tax Title Reg --> otd around 42000 - for a 09 Tech package (no extras).

    My colleagues say that right now - it should be 41000 ~ 40500 OTD in NJ before accessories.

    Is this a good deal? I am about to pull the trigger on Tuesday/Wednesday.
  • $39,400 for a Tech is a good price. With some more effort you should be able to get $500 off that or maybe $1000 depending on the dealer.

    Figure at that price the dealer is making ~$1200 + holdback on that deal, at this time of year and at this point in the 2009 lifetime you should be able to get down to $500 + holdback profit for a vehicle in dealer inventory.

    Did you compare to other dealers in your area by e-mail? You can feel safe countering $38,200 and work for $38,500-$39k. But, if your color combo is not widely available you can make the deal at $39,400 and you won't be getting robbed or anything.
  • inspectoring - would you mind emailing me the contact info for the dealer willing to sell to you for 38600+dest? shopping in jersey as well and that price would be better than any ive found so far.

    thanks

  • After searching for deals in North Carolina, I decided to follow up on some leads from this forum that mentioned good deals from Acura Pohanka. I called the manager, Kirk, who quoted me a deal over the phone on a Silver ext/ebony interior MDX tech for $39,500 + TTL. This color combo is in short supply and Pohanka was able to locate one from a nearby dealer. Kirk later handed me over to his sales rep, Sunny, who was great to work with making sure everything was ready to go before I drove 5 hours up in a rental car to pick up my new MDX. These guys were great to work with. No games on pricing or hard selling on options when I picked up the MDX. Sunny and Kirk were very professional and made my buying experience go very smooth.

    Just completed ’09 MDX Technology & Entertainment pkg. Black on Black
    Here were my lease numbers:
    MSRP: 47,600
    Amt due at signing – my total drive-off: (1st monthly +tax/registration): 1,284.54
    Gross Cap Cost: 40,625
    Adjusted Cap Cost: 40,625
    Residual (48%): 22,848
    Money Factor: 0.00162
    Lease term: 36 months (10K mi year)
    Base monthly payment without tax: 596.46
    Monthly payment (including OC CA 8.75% sales tax): 648.45

    It was the lowest offer of the 5 dealers that I emailed. So, I believe that I got a good deal.

    Method to my madness: I sent out an email to 5 dealers in Southern Cal (South Coast, Mission Viejo, Weir Canyon, Tustin, and Cerritos) asking for best offer (I used the Edmunds “get a quote” for the initial contact).
    The email basically said:
    I have sent emails to the Acura dealers containing the same info so that I can compare all offers on an equal playing field. Each dealer is working from the same criteria for fairness. Here it is what I want:
    1. 2009 Acura MDX AWD tech
    2. Black exterior with black interior, or white with Bordeaux
    3. 36 month lease
    4. 10K miles/yr
    5. Please assume a 0 (zero) drive-off.
    6. I need your best offer to include the following information: MSRP, cap cost, adjusted cap cost, money factor, residual, tax/licensing, basically everything that would appear on the lease contract.
    I will look at all the quotes that come in and make a decision from that. I will not be playing one dealer against the other. Your best offer should be just that... your best offer, and shouldn't be contingent on what another dealer says. I will assume that whatever you send is the best that can be done. No haggling or miscommunication.


    Experience: I heard back from all 5 dealers. Some responded with missing info, and I emailed back to have them complete the info if they wanted to be considered. The spread was interesting, approx $70/month difference between the lowest and highest. Two dealers were way high, and another low. The 2 in the middle were very close. All checked in with me to see how my decision was going. I reiterated that I am evaluating for best deal – and that if they had any specials, they should let me know now. I contacted the dealer that sent in the best offer (Weir Canyon in Anaheim), confirmed that they had the car I wanted. I also let him know that if I show up and the deal somehow changes in anyway to my disadvantage, I will walk out the door and never look back. I told him to have everything ready for me. I got there, signed the papers, filled out a credit app, and was done. The car was already prepped and ready to go. I am very happy with my experience. They were all friendly professional and true to their offer. This was my 5th time getting a new car (2nd lease) and I would say it was the least stressful.

    Post Purchase update: I emailed 3 of the other dealers to let them know I had gone with the best offer and thanked them for their email quotes. 2 of them responded professionally with a “Congratulations on your new Acura.” One of the dealers responded with “After all the work I put in. I would have loved to have had a chance to earn your business.” It rubbed me the wrong way, like he was trying to make me feel guilty – I could be reading it wrong. They should keep in mind that I still need to have the car serviced somewhere and that particular dealer happens to be closest to my house.
    Sorry for the long post – bottom line – out of the 5 dealers that I contacted, I found the best experience and price/lease terms at Weir Canyon Acura. I love my car and am spending this Thanksgiving programming in my stations, customizing all my settings, and familiarizing myself with the placement of the equipment so I will stop turning on the wipers when I want to put the car into park and reverse. LOL. (former Mercedes ML owners will understand this ;~).
  • Hey all.

    This was my 2nd car purchase in the past year (ouch) and these boards have been a great help, so thanks to all of you who contributed.

    To help others as well, here is the deal I just closed: 2009 Base MDX, $35,990 including destination, roof rails, cross bars & body side molding. Add TTL. I am in Central PA.

    The color combo we wanted was in very short supply. I would think you could do better if you wanted Formal Black - seemed to be a lot of those around. I had to contact at least a half dozen dealers - all the others were $1500-$2000 more than what I settled for.

    Best of luck.
  • Did not see any response from him. May be you are right!

    Thanks,

  • Hello all,
    first post and proud owner of a new Acura. Here's the deal I got:
    2009 MDX Base, pearl white with taupe (gray) interior
    I live in Northern Virginia and bought from Karen Radley Acura in Woodbridge
    $37,490 + $385 proc fee + $1,240 TTL = $39,115
    Tax is like 3.16% here.
    Accessories Included: Chrome Side Steps, Body Side Molding, Reverse Sensing System (Back-up beepers) and All-Weather Floor Mats.
    They gave me $11,500 for my trade-in which was respectable and should be included as a part of the sweet deal. I'm happy and felt the salesman was good with me and I have an overall pleasant buying experience on my first 'luxury' vehicle.

    Already ordered/will be ordering:
    - Dual DVD headrest players from www.onfair.com
    - Chrome clip to put on the tail
    - tint the front windows
    - clear bra

    Traded in my behemoth Expedition which my family really loved for its 5+ years. Wanted something nice for the wife and almost settled on a Volvo XC90 (not as much space and a big, big difference from an Expedition). Will post more with my experiences soon. Glad to be here.
  • Not only are they not dealing that low anymore (inventory almost depleted) but they also charge you the $810 destination fee which most other Acura dealers include in their price.

    I paid about $35,200 for my base yesterday to include destination and am extremely happy about it. I thought about the 2010 version but not happy with the snout. At a 3% increase in base price from the 2009 version they are really only adding power liftgate and 16/21 mpg as the major differences (besides new snout and tail).

    What is the APR that you got and for howmany months? I need to confirm tomorrow
  • Went to the dealer today and was offered a 2009 MDX with Tech/Ent packages for 42K (not including TTL). Based on what I've seen using the Edmunds calculator and other website price target calculators, this seems like a good deal. However, the posts in this forum make me think otherwise. Has anyone from the NY area beat 42K on the same package? Supply is getting short, but not sure which way that cuts.... Going back tomorrow to potentially seal the deal, so any tips on how to get a lower price would be welcome.

    Btw - also looked at the Lexus RX-350. One thing I will say -- the mouse controller for the nav/bluetooth/entertainment system is awesome. Too bad the dealer tried to start me at 51K (!!) for their Tech/Ent package and then "because he wanted to work with me" agree to take 3K off that price. Yeah, thanks a lot.
  • I have a $500 deposit on a 2009 Acura MDX with Tech (black on black). I applied for a financing program and got Acura's 2.9% / 60 months promotional rate. The dealer is selling the car to me at $39,735 <-- this includes the $2,000 rebate and $810 destination fee.

    Should I pull the trigger on this or wait for the 2010 MDX? My dealer can get me into an 2010 by the second week of December (about two weeks from today). The wait is not an issue. Although he can't quote me an exact price for the 2010, my dealer says he can probably sell it to me for approx 45K. However, he can't promise any special rates on the financing and says that I will most likely be getting a loan from one of the commercial banks they work with at the market rate of about 5%. So figure another $2,500-$3,000 more in interest over the course of the financing terms. Bringing the total cost of the 2010 MDX approx $7,500-$8,000 more than the 2009 MDX.

    The upside of the MDX (at least for me) is as followings:

    1. the new grille. I like it very much. I think its aggressive, futuristic looking, and a notable upgrade from the 2009.
    2. I also like the chrome around the windows. I think this is an important highlight that the 2009 was missing.
    3. 19 inch wheel size upgrade. (bigger wheels always makes an SUV look better).

    Besides these three external changes, I really don't care for any of the inside upgrades like the 8-inch VGA navi, hard-drive, 6 speed tran, etc...

    In fact, I am concerned about the new transmission. I plan on keeping this car for a while and definitely don't want to be going back to the dealership on a recall.

    I am always a sucker for the "newest" products, but is this mid-cycle refresh worth this risk and extra cash?

  • just lined up a tentative deal for a 2009 Tech/Entertainment MDX. Dealer owned with 9800 miles. Certified with 7 year 100k power train warranty and 5/62k bumper to bumper warranty. including mats and side trim.

    Dealer wants $38,800. Having second thoughts at that price for a used MDX although it is immaculate.

    Would appreciate some advice.

  • that's basically the same offer i'm getting in NYC, except silver with black interior. still waiting to see if NJ dealers come in lower, but if they give a decent deal on my trade in, i'll probably pull the trigger today. at some point, the prospect of saving 500 is no longer worth it.
  • here's how i would look at it: you are probably giving up the best 7% of the car's life (assuming a lifetime of about 150K miles) for a discount of 7% below what i am paying for the same model new. it sounds reasonable if you look at it from that perspective, but less so if you put any stock in the adage that a new car loses 20-30% of its value the minute you drive it off the lot. plus, you don't know how the car was treated during that first 10K.
