2013 and earlier-Acura MDX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Rosenthal, Radley and Pohanka had really aggressive sales and promotions this past weekend.

    I ended up going to Radley because it was a closer drive from Philly and they had the a color combination we were looking for.

    I somehow got sidetracked when meeting with the finance person. I was pre-approved at 1.74% and somehow they brainwashed me into using their lender at a higher rate (2.24). Good thing that auto loans aren't like mortgages so there is no cost to refinance back to 1.74. On top of that, gap coverage through the credit union is only 349 instead of 875 through the dealer.

    Total damage for 13 MDX w Tech was 39.5 +TTL. TN was my sales rep and I highly recommend!
  • Cool.. congrats on your MDX.

    Anyone knows when are they showing up at dealerships?
  • My sales rep said due to the production delay, the earliest they will be shipping 2014's is July. Based on previous production delays, it will end up being more like August.

    May I ask you to please share where are you getting 1.74 rate for the refinance. I might be interested in the same rate if the bank allows out of state refinance.

    Thx - G
  • thanks... i actually ended up buying a 2013 Mercedes Benz GLK 350 for $7K lower than MSRP. If anyone is interested, you can talk to Saad or Vas from Hoehn Mercedes Benz in Carlsbad (north of San Diego).

    awesome vehicle... and i'm enjoying it on my drives along the coast/ beaches!!!

    OTD: $44500

    Can anyone comment on this deal below..? I had a tough time to get any dealer in CT to come down on sell price for mdx.

    negotiated price with destination = 38, 300
    dealer conveyance = 399

    trade in (2006 honda crv SE with 132k miles ) = 6700

    total OTD = 32000 + 200 (registration, transfer of plates) + tax (6.35%) = 34, 244
  • I am not sure prices in CT, but to me it feels couple of grands more.
  • Pentagon Federal Credit Union is offering 1.74 up to 72 months. I just checked the rates and they are still valid for June. If you do not meet the qualifications to join for free, you can make a one time donation (15-20) to one of their charities.

    I was able to get 35500 plus ttl till last month for the base mdx. I called rosenthal and pohanka and they have both given me prices of 36700 and 38600 respectively. Do you all think its because its the first part of the month and I should be able to get a better deal end of this month. Also i was expecting the prices to go down a little bit with the new model coming out next month. I am a bit disappointed. Could you all give me your insight as to the best time to buy for he best price.

    I heard they had 8K of in Memorial weekend on any MDX.
    How about 10yr extended warranty??

    thanks a lot! I will give them a call to see if I refinance @1.74%

    Anywhere between 7k-8k off MSRP is a good price.

    Anyone who made a deal for 2014 MDX?

    I made a refundable deposit for 2014 MDX (AWD + Tech) recently to secure the first batch.

    But, I'm still interested in some features of Advanced package. Sadly, $8000 difference from Tech isn't small money to justify. I believe it's bloated at least $1000. From the tech pack, the advanced package has: RES($2500, a bit better than Tech+RES package) + Exterior features (roof rail + parking sensors = $1000) + Driving assistance (CMBS + AAC + LKA = $2500) + Ventilated seats ($700) = $6700. Maybe different wheel is worthy of $1000?

    So, I'm trying to find a dealership who would do any discount on the advanced package. Do you think it's gonna work at this time?

    I'm in SF bay area, where 4-6 dealerships are there. Any information for buying 2014 will be appreciated!

    Advanced Pkg requires getting the new 16.2" split screen Res system, which unfortunately does not exactly have hi-res, and Acura like you said is pricing it ~ $2500.

    So, if you want entertainment for the kidos in the 2nd row, a much better option would be to get the Tech Pkg + get two 10" iPad 4's, Wi-Fi w/16GB w/retinal display w/superior res (iPad 5 is rumored to be released soon) at a cost of ~ $500 ea. ( link title ) + two iPad backseat car mounts/holders ( link title ) available for a nominal fee (b/n $12-40 ea = $80/two for best) + $30-50 ea for ear buds/Kidz Gear headphones (link title ) for the iPads = $1,000 (pair iPad4's) + $80 (pair iPad backseat mounts) + $100 (pair Kidz Gear headphones) = $1,180 total for a very nice MDX Res alternative, with lots of versatility and potential to entertain the kidos (big and small)!

    Yup, if I wanted the rear entertainment system (RES), there is no reason to buy the advanced package. As you suggested, iPad is much better option.

    But, I want some features in the advanced package, not RES. That's the problem. I just hope if a dealership does some discount on that. I believe at least a couple of months it won't be easy to get a discount on MDX 2014 models.

    What would be your choice. Obviously pricing has not been revealed for the 2014 Highlander Limited, but I believe these will be similar to the current sales prices of the 2013 MDX w/ Tech package. Your thoughts?

    IMO, performance and styling/cosmetics (ext/int) goes to 2013 MDX w/tech, whereas value (feature content) and pricing (anticipated) goes to 2014 Highlander LTD w/AWD.
