2013 and earlier-Acura MDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I currently own a 2010 MDX Tech with 27K Miles on it. I put down a large down payment and my monthly for 60 months is $569. I currently owe about $21K on the car.

    The dealer will trade in the 2010 with an additional $2K and give me a 2012 MDX Tech at the same monthly payment for another 60 months.

    Please note that I am due for B123 Service + New Brakes which I estimate will cost total $800-$1100.

    Do you think this is a good deal?
  • Really? Do the math, you getting a new car for over $55,000 assuming you're getting 1.9% financing for 60 months. With the trade of $23000, you're going to spend 32,543. Definitely not a good deal.
  • The real question is, is it really worth a little over $11K to upgrade, the 2K they throwing in is really not much if you think about it, total maybe 12K-13K extra with all the hidden fees and whatever they going to try and get you with... I wouldn't do it, but if you have the $$$$ to spend, why not....
  • Hi Mac...can you share what dealer you used?
    I'm willing to drive out of state..

  • Just to share the numbers - 2012 Acura MDX with Technology. Bought for $43,150. Financed at 0.9% for 36 mos. Also got accessories: roof rack, body molding, rubber mats - but those were not discounted.

    Buying experience was very disappointing. The dealer tried to cheat us after agreeing on the price and the numbers that went into financing were about $1,000 higher. After an hour of arguing they admitted their "mistake" and we closed the deal, but it's hardly a luxury car buying experience. The dealership also isn't very luxurious, but that's secondary.

    With price matching between dealers getting this price was not very hard, but getting a better price for trade-in was more difficult.

    Overall, I am happy with the car and not happy with the dealers. The things they said insulted my intelligence and overall sounded dumb: "we are not making any money, even losing $60 on the deal - we just want to make a customer for life". Or "we can give you the best deal on your trade in, because we are a publicly traded company". Or "no used car can be in excellent condition, even new cars are not excellent, even the one I am selling is not excellent".
  • I have an offer for a 2012 base mdx for $39,500 plus taxes and tags. Seems a bit high. Has anyone seen a lower offer on this forum? Is this a good deal or just fair?
  • Hi leased a 2011 Base MDX--35 month, 10,000 miles, yesterday. First time I leased a car, did I get a good deal?

  • I just finalized a deal with a northern VA dealership for 2012 Base model.

    $38,500 (using a 1,000 rebate for using financing)
    + $111.50 tags
    +$1264.67 tax (VA)
    +$395 (processing fee (extra $ in dealers pocket)
    OTD $40,271.17
    Dealer threw in Protection Pkge #2 and the usual oil changes...

    What do you think? Is this a good deal? Need feedback ASAP... Don't know if I should go through with it tomorrow. Thanks in advance!
  • You're under invoice by $1300 (if you're including shipping) so I would say that's a good deal!
  • Good deal! Now I'm going to have to try to match or beat that....Grrr. It just got harder.

    I had the same experience last time I did financing with my own acura dealer. They had added something that I specifically had declined and they acted like they couldn't change it as it was on the contract. I should have walked out because just like you, it took almost an hour to change it. If it happens next time (I'm going for the same 2012 MDX with tech), i will walk out.

    It's a very good deal. Can you please tell me the dealer's contact? Thanks.
  • Sales tax in VA is 3.17.
  • Just finalized a deal in TX
    2011 MDX with tech, financing for 60 months, $42338 + approx $3000 in taxes/title
    so for this is the best I have got.
    any thoughts if I should go ahead with it ?
    Thanks in advance.
  • Damn Shas..that sounds like a really good deal. I can't get the dealer here to budge off $42k for an 11Tech they have.
    Sounds like I may have to venture out of my "local" area.
  • Just closed my purchase of 2012 Base MDX, with all season protection package (retail: $386) and oil changes and tires rotation for 4 years or 50,000 miles:

    $38,500 (using $1,000 "flex cash"), plus

    $395. (junk fee)
    $1,264. (tax VA)
    $111.5 (tags)

    So basically, I paid $39,000, plus taxes and tags.

    Dealership is Radley Acura in Falls Church VA. They were very professional, honest and nice to work with. Negotiated mostly by email and on phone yesterday. When to dealership today to finalize deal and was pleasantly surprised to find no tricks, switch and bait, or extra fees thrown in last minute. I highly recommend the dealership and especially my salesman.
    Thanks for all your impute and advice! It really helped me get a decent deal.
  • Radley Acura in Bailey's Crossroads VA (Falls Church, VA).
  • List price of 43,815. They dropped 2k off that. I think they need to go lower. I got about what I wanted on trade in. This is the base model with no frills added. Can anyone advise if this is good or they need to go lower. It's new.

  • Steve, for a 2011 base you should be looking at 38,500 - 39,000 plus taxes+ttl
    look around for different quotes. I've got a quote of 38,895 on the 2011 base.

  • Just to clarify your price is for a 2012 not a 2011?

    My local dealerships in SE PA have quite a few 2011's on the lots. I can't imagine getting a 2012 for $38,500?
  • The price is for a 2011 in my case. Thanks Steve
