2013 and earlier-Acura MDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I think $46k OTD for a 2010 MDX adv/ent w/ only 2k miles is an amazing deal. Congrats.

    By the way, does anyone know why some dealers list their MSRP price different than the others? For example, some list $48,155 and others $49,015 for Tech/Ent model. A $900 difference.
  • Thanks!

    Could that $900 diff be due to the destination charge? Did you check?

    Happy New Year!
  • that is a bit too high on the price, I got a price quote for 41500 before tax, tag and doc fee from a dealership in VA

    I am looking to purchase a 2011 MDX Tech and Entertainment package in New Jersey. I can purchase it now or wait until the new promotions, deals and rebates come out in January. I would appreciate it if you can advise me of the best price out there in NJ inclusive of taxes, tag, destination, licensing fees, etc. I can go to any dealership in New Jersey.

    Also, what is the best financing plans for 60 months or longer.

    Your input is greatly appreciated.

    Just started researching prices for 2011 MDX. I became anchored on $42k price for the Tech package based on some comments in this forum. Admittedly, it seems the $42k price was coming from dealers in SoCal - any one seeing these prices in Seattle (or somewhere within a couple hour drive)? The price I got in Seattle after much haggling and at 7:30 pm New Years Eve was $44k and change (before taxes)and $41k + change on the base. Do I just not know how to haggle, or are Seattle prices that much higher? We took a pass because I am willing to spend a few hours on the road to save a few grand. Any suggestions are appreciated. We are hoping to find $42.5k (before taxes) for the tech package and ebony interior.
  • In Dec you could have gotten the $42K price point in Northern CA, Southern CA, and Vegas. I didn't check elsewhere.

    For the last two car purchases I've made, I've avoided going into the dealership to negotiate a purchase. I figure dealerships are negotiating multiple deals a day and have every advantage when I'm dealing with them on-on-one in their showroom. (This last time, even though the price was already negotiated and agreed upon, I still brought my ipad with cellular service so that I could pull up emails or check things on the net.)

    Here's what I've done instead:

    - Priced the car with Costco and Sam's Club (not great prices, but it gives me a high end for the range)

    - Email dealerships using a bunch of sites (Yahoo, Cars direct, MSN, Edmunds, etc.) throughout the area I'm willing to buy -- I can fly to Vegas for $100 from LA and drive the car back if the price was significantly better out there

    - I only specify the package/options I want, and I do not specify the color. I leave color open because I tend to be somewhat flexible, but also because I expect that dealers want to preserve margins for popular color/package combinations.

    - Not spoken on the phone or live with any dealership until I have an agreed upon price and terms (including break down of out the door pricing) that applies to any vehicle (color/package/etc. combination) they have in their inventory.

    - Only spoken on the phone with the dealership to confirm the price I received in email and schedule the appointment to review colors and make the purchase.

    There's one exception to this process, which is also the most challenging. After I price Costco and Sam's Club, I visit one dealership to do a test drive. Because I don't intend to buy during that visit, I tell the sales person I won't be buying that day, that I'm going to price the car online, and that when I'm ready to buy I'll give them a call to see if they can match the price I find.

    BTW. Assuming the car model has been around for a while, I like to test drive a used car -- 1 or 2 years old, lease return or trade-in. It probably makes no difference, but I figure it's worth seeing what a used car runs like and how it's held up (i.e. performance, interior, etc.).

    Best of luck in your purchase!
  • Hi mbmacura,

    I'm about to purchase a MDX from Serramonte. We've talked them down to to a pretty good price, but they are dragging their feets. Which sales guy did you talked to for your MDX Tech/ent.? Maybe your guy has his $h!t together.
    thanks for any help in advance.

    Yes please share as i am about to purchase as well.

    RT - which guy have you been dealing with?
  • This deal is comparable to the adv/ent I bought couple of days ago (see yesterdays posts).

    I preferred perforated seats as well. Adaptive cruise sounded more useful to me than collision detection. 19"wheels is a plus too.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the background and suggestions. We started looking outside the Seattle area just to see. Only had contact with a couple dealers in Portland, OR and their prices were actually in line with Seattle prices (+/-). Still pushing to find the $42.5k with tech; although, we may ultimately go with the Base or settle for the Mazda 9. Will let you know either way.
  • The site doesn't allow posting salesman name, please send me a pm.

    As indicated in my email, I didn't have a good experience with them either.
  • two offers w/ advance running boards, black rails &cross bars, trifold mat ans all season mats:

    1. $51,500

    2. $51,750, plus two free maintenance visits

    one dealer was pleasant to work with the other not so much. Dealer cost is around $50k with accessories.
  • These prices must be before TTL, looks reasonable to me as running boards+black crossbars alone cost 1200+. Add mats to that it is a good deal!
  • New to the whole forum thing, how do I send you a private message?

    Wow - that is pretty amazing. How much of that was sales tax and registration?
  • I'd like to thank you too..yesterday I leased a 2011, MDX with Tech package, running boards and all weather mats, 12000 miles per year from Glendale Acura. The initial out of pocket was $1248.45, first month $602.31 and license. Thanks again
