2013 and earlier-Acura MDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • updating my previous price quote, i was accidentally double-counting the dest charge. My price for the new MDX w/tech was actually $42,900, plus tax, tag/title and a $385 processing fee.

    I posted this same question in MDX Extended Warranties section but since this thread seems to be little more active.. I will post this question here too..
    I am currently shopping for a 2010 MDX Tech and have a quick question about Curry Acura Care/Bernardi Extended warranty...

    1st Question: Is it okay (legal/permissible/usable) to buy these warranties? In recent days, I have been doing quite a bit of reading about extended warranties and have not found a 'clear' consensus one way or the other about these online/phone warranties... and now I am little more worried since one of the Sales/Finance guy (I m not sure which department he really worked in) at a local Acura dealership mentioned to me that there is some kind of pending litigation/lawsuit between some two parties.. not sure if he meant between Acura and Curry or whoever.. unless he was trying to scare me into buying warranty from them... but I dint ended up buying MDX that evening so warranty was out of question that day.. :)

    If I have a choice to buy either, which one should I pick?

    So far I have gotten extended warranty quotes from Curry Acura Care AND Bernardi and wanted to check if current MDX owners recommend buying one over the other or if one has better reviews than the other. In light of what I was told at a local dealership, I am especially interesed in this answer..

    In terms of price comparison, for a 7 yr/100k extended, Curry Acura Care is about $125 ($1810) MORE than same Bernardi waranty ($1685).

    Again, I wanted to check if we can indeed buy either of these warranty and if I should go with one over the other?

    Any thoughts/suggestions/comments?

    If this is any help. In the past would take the lowest Acura factory price I could find on line to the dealer I was buying from. They have always matched the price instead of losing the sale. Then I'm assured I have a factory warranty an a place to chase down any problems.

    Thanks for replying, Josheel.

    This is exactly what I was planning to do when I go to dealership but seeing how firm AZ Acura dealers have been with me so far with their steep price quotes, I wanted to have a 'back-up' option available to me, just in case they dont even come close to these onlines prices.. but appreciate your comment. I will keep this in mind.
  • Personally I would skip the extended warranty. Take the $1,600 and put it in a nice interest earning money market account. Use this money later if needed for any expensive repair. You're buying an Acura (i.e. Honda) product so reliability is very high. I've owned several Honda products and never have had a major issue where I wished I had bought an extended warranty. My current Odyssey is pushing 200k miles and still running strong with no major issues. This is just my opinion, but I think you are wasting your money.

    How much should I pay for the 2010 Acura MDX base model ? Has anyone bought this in Houston area ?

    Take the $1,600 and put it in a nice interest earning money market account.

    Good advice, generally... but, have you seen money market returns? You can get 10 times the return in a plain vanilla savings account from your local bank.

    Current return on my money market: 1/100 of one percent..

    $0.09 per month on $10,000, to put it in actual numbers..

    I do agree with putting the money away, and using it as needed, though... :)

    Hi all,

    I just got in the market for an MDX. I was heavily considering the RX350 from lexus but decided that it just didn't have the room I need for my soon to be family of four (expecting a baby in the next few weeks). However, a lot of the other mid size trucks out there are either too large and/or not worth the money (i.e. take a GMC and your at Lexus/Acura prices after adding most features that are standard on the luxury brands).

    That said I looked at Acura this mornign (for the second time) and liked what I saw. I sat down with the salesman to run me number for a 36 month lease, based package, 12K miles per year, $0 down (just first month and mv). I was quoted $625 per month. If I recall correctly the msrp was about 42K (?) and he was gong 2k under MSRP.

    Looking for some feedback as to other deals that have recenty been signed on this truck. Thanks.

    Got Base Mdx 2010 for $40,330 + TTL in pittsburgh,PA.I am not sure whether it's good bargain or not.Thank you for the forum and it helped me to in negotiation.

    40,330 is a great deal..i bought mine for 40,900..but needed it and also got a decent price on my trade in..and this is in MI
  • jrdontajrdonta Posts: 11
    I paid 43200 O.T.D.( approximately 39100 before TTL) for MDX Base 2010. It is black exterior and interior. It took me 5 hours at dealer to get this price. I live in Southern California.
  • Paragon Acura outside of NYC has a certified-used base MDX (blk, with tan) with 4K miles listed for $33,900. Checked the carfax and it's clean -- should i jump on it versus purchasing a new one? Feeling like it's the best way to go. Thoughts?
  • jrdontajrdonta Posts: 11
    If is is 2009 then you should ask for 28000 or less since brand new MDX 2009 base was only 34000 last Nov. Otherwise, it is better to get the new one if you can.
  • Where did you get the $34K figure as the 2009 Base MSRP was $40,990. According to this sites used car appraiser, they come up with $35,913 for CPO.

    I plan on negotiating and would love to use that figure if there is data to support it.

  • If people are purchasing 2010 Acura MDX base without any extras for around $39,330 to $40,000 before TTL ... what is your starting offer to the dealership?

    I'm considering an Advance & it sounds like I my 1st offer might have to be $48,000 ??

    What have people started their offer with Base & Tech to get these deals?

    Of course I will be considering extras (mats, rails, etc) but try to take that out of your price if you can...

    1. In 2009, Acura gave 4 thousands back to all dealers at the end of the year. As a result, many people paid only 34000 + TTL. Please keep in mind that dealer make more money on used car. I suggest to buy from private party if you are considering buying used one.
    2. I start to deal with the dealer with O.T.D price. Most dealers give me online quote 45000 O.T.D for MDX base in Southern Cali. But two of them offered me 44000 (close to me) and 43200 ( far way from me) out the door. So I use the lowest O.T.D to buy the car close to where I live. Be firm with the price even if they are telling you that they will give you 1.9 instead of 2.9 or higher. Get the online quote even dealer is far away from you since you just needed the official quote so that you can deal with the dealer which is closer to you. When asking for online price quote, make sure you are showing sincere and serious buyer. Acura selling MDX Base and Tech very well but not Advanced models so it is your advantage to negotiate the lowest one. The dealer I bought my MDX, they gave me online O.T.D quote of 44800 but I got 432000 since I have official quote from another dealer. I hope it hep you guys since I got great tips after reading through all the threads from this forum. One last thing, making sure you have your back up finance since you dont want the dealer used their low A.P.R to negotiate with you.
