    Does anyone have a clue if Acura will extend the 0.9% and 1.9% financing beyond 7/6/10? This may factor into the timing of my MDX purchase. Thanks.

    Just signed today for a Black TECH/ENT for $44,100. Added Protection Package 1, Silver Roof Rails, Silver Cross Bars, Side Body Molding for a total of $45,803.32. Plus TTL.

    I am in SC and Bradshaw Acura in Greenville did a great job working with me.

    I just purchased a base 2010 Acura MDX for $38,217 + $810 destination = $39,027. With TTL + $154.38 doc fee = 42,145.18 OTD.

    Did you shop around and this was the best offer? Considering getting MDX with tech package in western suburbs of chgo and was wondering what I should expect to pay?
  • I just bought my 2010 Acura MDX with NAV/ENT last night from Elite Acura in Maple Shade, NJ. We had a fantastic buying experience! The folks were great and no dog and pony show. I've been two other dealers and cannot say the same. After negotiating with them, I had a pretty good idea of what I could get the car for and what my trade was worth. I checked their internet inventory and they had the exact car I wanted. I called the internet sales dept to confirm that the car was there and laid out the deal I was willing to make. If they agreed to my terms, I'd buy it the same day. The sales manager called me back about 30 minutes later and told me that he could work within the parameters I set and promised no funny business when I arrived. I got mine for $44,300 with all-weather mats, wheel locks and advanced running boards. I had a great experience at Elite and would highly recommend them. They are a class act! I love my new Dark Cherry Pearl MDX!

    Now this one sounds darn good. Checking the last page:

    "I just purchased a base 2010 Acura MDX for $38,217 + $810 destination = $39,027. With TTL + $154.38 doc fee = 42,145.18 OTD"

  • Took Delivery July 3rd after much research. Had to go outside my local area, one dealer in Southeast Wisconsin makes for very low bargaining motivation. Found my Tech in Chicago area for $41,997 + 860 destination charge + TTL. Also got 2 years free scheduled maintenance, based on distance from my home may or may not use that. Entire deal was done via email and a couple of phone calls. Very low stress. Car had 6 miles on it when delivered and I could not be happier. good luck finding yours, hope this helps.

    Wow...aren't you polite? Yeah, I have nothing better to do with my time than join this forum to lie about what I paid for my car. Seriously? Would you like to see my Sales Agreement? $44,300 plus destination, and TTL. I had a trade, but think I made a pretty good deal there, as well. Did I mention, that not only did I get this deal at Elite Acura (where they sweetened it with the advanced running boards!), but at Metro and Turnersville Acura as well? They didn't have the color I wanted, and I didn't care to wait. I don't know where you live, but this is what they can be had for in this area. Maybe you should jump down off your high horse and walk here. Check out Truecar.com. The dealer cost is $43,557. They made some money on my trade, as well. BTW, thanks for the warm welcome Juli714. :mad:

    So, because this is my first posting that automatically means I'm a liar? I'm so glad I wasted my time on this forum. The 2003 MDX forum was composed of much nicer people. Since you and Juli714 think you should pay more for your MDX, so do I. Perhaps they could throw in a remedial course in good manners, as well.

    To the rest of the forum folks. Happy MDX shopping! I hope you can use the info I provided to get a good deal on your MDX. When you do get a good deal, don't even bother posting it, since no one will believe you either. $44,300 is what I paid in South Jersey for a TECH/ENT and I could have made the deal 3x. Maybe without a trade, you'll pay a little more. Dealers make money one way or the other. Good luck!

    Thanks for the posts. I'm sure some people on here can and will use your experience to help them get a good price on their car. I'm waiting for my Pilot lease to expire and I'm upgrading to an MDX. Good luck and enjoy your ride!
  • Elite Acura is in Maple Shade, NJ near Mt. Laurel. Exit 4 off NJ turnpike, RT 73N to RT 38E. Sales manager that I dealt with is D. H. You can find his full name at Eliteacura.com. :)
  • Thank you. This is my second MDX and I am a fan for life. Test drove the Acadia because we love the look, but the interior quality just couldn't compare. Cheap plastic everywhere. The drive was ho-hum as well. Took the MDX out on a test track (think grand prix, not nascar) at one of the dealers and it was awesome. The tranny just propelled it around the tight turns! Woosh! I wish I could drive on that track every day! :oD I love all the new tech too! You can tell the car to do practically anything-even change the radio station and such. I read yesterday that 2011's will be updated inside and out. You may want to wait and see what changes are made. Good luck!
  • From Automobile.com:
    The Acura MDX will get a styling refresh for 2011. Acura has also said it may offer a V6 diesel engine option on the 2011 MDX. Expect the 2011 Acura MDX to hit showroom floors in the autumn of 2010. Read our car review of the 2011 MDX for additional details.

    Specifications

    Here are specs we know so far on the 2011 Acura MDX:

    Pricing: the 2011 MDX should start at around $43,000 MSRP; no invoice data available
    Fuel economy: current fuel economy car ratings for the MDX are 16/21 mpg city/highway, but if Acura decides to offer a diesel V6 engine option, the ratings for that engine option will likely be higher.
    Engine: 3.7-liter, 300-horsepower V6; diesel V6 engine may also be an option
    Drivetrain: six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control
    Acceleration: 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds likely, but no data available yet
    Model lineup: five existing trim levels will probably carry over to 2011, but only select trims may be available with new diesel engine
    Car safety features: identical to those of the 2010 MDX
    Suspension: active sport suspension available with Advance package trim
    Warranty: four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty; six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty; roadside assistance for life of the vehicle
    Exterior Features

    The first auto review articles of the 2011 Acura MDX suggest a significantly revised front end. Buyers can also expect redesigned headlamps and a refreshed lower bumper fascia for 2011.

    Interior Features

    Typically, Acura refreshes its models’ interiors when they revise their exteriors, but we won’t know for sure until official photos are released. The center stack console of the current Acura MDX model has taken a lot of flak from critics, so a redesign is likely in that regard.

    Performance

    Honda has not confirmed any changes under the hood for the 2011 Acura MDX. However, the automaker has said that it would like to offer a fuel-efficient diesel V6 engine option in the MDX for either the 2011 or 2012 model years. Should the MDX offer a diesel option for 2011, buyers can expect radically improved fuel economy. Changes to the existing 3.7-liter, 300-hp V6 are unlikely for the coming year. We’ll know more about the performance, braking, and handling of the 2011 Acura MDX once we conduct an official road test.

    I emailed around to 5-6 different Acura dealers in Chicagoland (mostly northern/western burbs). Got quotes from 3 or 4 of them. The dealer I bought from (which thankfully was also the dealer closest to me) provided the best quote up front, with the nearest being a couple of hundred dollars more expensive. I've done this now 3 times over the past 4 years or so (other 2 times buying Hondas) and it's by far the best way to buy a car nowadays, assuming you know what vehicle you want ahead of time, so that you're not wasting time jumping from dealer to dealer. It's relatively painless. Of course, it's easier with Hondas/Acuras, where the packages are essentially set with few if any options (vs. Toyotas and other makes where there are tons of various options, which makes comparison much more difficult, as dealers will quote you a price, but without being specific enough for you to know what exactly is in that quote).

    Sorry, but that auto mag is wrong. They made an error. The MDX got a MMC for the 2010 model year. While a diesel option is likely I expect no other changes to the MDX until the complete redesign in 2013 (Fall 2012).

    By the end of september the 2011 MDX should start rolling in to dealers. Typically, Acura will discount the remaining 2010 Inventory by offering incentives of $1,000-$2,000 (more if there is a redesign). I expect the $1,000 incentive to start soon.

    By the way, Acura sent me a coupon for $700 off my next MDX/TL purchase provided I take delivery by August 31, 2010. So, in September my $700 coupon expires but I expect Acura to raise the incentive to $1,000 (no coupon needed).
