    I am waiting the arrival of my 2015 SH-AWD w/Technology and Entertainment Packages in white diamond pearl. I traded in a 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L w/RES. Apparently, the AWD with this package and in this color is difficult to come by in the DFW area at this time. It was difficult negotiations. With a trade-in and all the fees it was difficult to get a good comparison among the dealers in the area. I guess that is part of the game. MSRP $51,735. Sale price $47,155. When it was all said and done, the total out-the-door was $49,807.

  • ram68ram68 Posts: 2

    Chebbie I'm in DFW looking to buy he same combination MDX. Which dealer did you work with and what was the breakup?

  • chebbiechebbie Posts: 3

    None of the 4 DFW area dealers had the one we wanted in stock on the lot. We almost ended up with the FWD instead of the AWD, but one of dealers indicated they had the exact AWD we wanted in transit. We ended up getting it from Vandergriff Acura. Still waiting for it to arrive but it is supposed to be here within the next several days. The total with sale price, dealer add-ons, fees, and sales tax was $49,807. The sales tax included was $1,525. This doesn't consider the equity in our trade-in but does contemplate reduced sales tax because of the trade-in. Without the trade-in, it would have added another $1,400 on for additional sales tax.

  • ram68ram68 Posts: 2

    Chebbie- Thanks. For the Sale price $47,155, were you able to get it from more than 1 dealer? How hard was it to get that? Did you negotiate the sale price in person or over the internet?

  • chebbiechebbie Posts: 3

    ram68 - It was difficult to get an equal comparison from each dealer for few reasons. Vandergriff was the only dealer that had the exact vehicle we were looking for. We were in discussion with another dealer on the FWD and another dealer on an AWD with Tech package (but not Entmt). Each dealers' fees were a little different and each valued our trade-in differently. For example, at one point we looked an AWD but in a different color than we wanted. That dealer's sale price was $48,900 but they were willing to give us more for our trade-in also. It probably would have ended up being a wash at the end of the day. The reason we ended up at Vandergriff is because they had the exact one we we're looking for. Most of the negotiations were done in person at some point with each of the 3 dealers along with some phone and email discussion. I've never had much success with negotiations via internet & email. I would say negotiations were probably a little more difficult than what I have experienced on past car purchases, mostly because of a limited number of Acura dealers in the area, smaller supply, and purchase at a time when the new model year is just starting to arrive on dealer lots.

    We went looking at 2015 MDX Advanced/ENT AWD today. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a target price for me. Accessories: LED fog lights, Heated Steering wheel, Mats.

  • steverstever Posts: 52,462

    Try drilling down under Make/Model/Year above and select "Build with Options". That will give you our True Market Value price (TMV).

    That's an average price for your zip code - your plan should be to try to beat the average.

  • TMV is of little help because neither the factory nor dealer installed options are factored in. Acura's site displays the MSRP of the option without cost of installation, which I'm finding can be exorbitant.

  • Has anybody ever found yourself treated with any less priority/dignity/service loaner etc by buying a vehicle at a distant dealership? IOW not going to the selling dealer for service.

  • steverstever Posts: 52,462

    Tough question; occasionally you'll hear rumors that someone's VIN is "marked" in the dealer computer and those customers don't get the VIP treatment or offered loaners.

    More often, people say that the service side of the business is run separately from the new car sales, which is run separately from used cars, which is run separately from finance. That argument holds that the departments don't really share info and are just concerned with their own profit and loss statements and the heck with the other dealer units. The service writer will be concerned with happy customers and good surveys in other words and won't care where you purchased the car.

    It is true that if you are a "loyal" customer, you may get treated better out of warranty. But you may not. ;)

    Does the price include taxes, destination fee and any extras? I am looking for the same thing. Seems like you got a good price. Which dealership did you get it from?

    Destination fee included. MSRP $49,735. Dealer is Performance Acura in Chapel Hill, NC. I leased the vehicle and paid upfront 1st month payment + 3% NC tax ($566), doc fee ($549) and title fee ($74). I declined dealer add ons like paint/interior protection and maintenance packages but I made a mistake of accepting $248 dealer add ons of nitrogen filled tires ($99...what was I thinking?) and wheel locks ($149...could have gotten much cheaper online). Good luck!

  • Looking to purchase 2015 AWD MDX with Tech package in Northern VA, anyone who has recently purchased similar model please share OTD price.

  • pukimon311 - $46,076. is this OTD price?

  • Paid $39,500 + TTL for 2015 MDX FWD base model. Was that ok price or should have negotiated more?

  • $39,500 included destination.

  • Best offer I have received so far from a dealer in Northern Virginia is $48,025 OTD for AWD w/Tech package. pukimon31 can you please confirm if $46,076 is OTD price and details for sales person you dealt with.

    For labor day weekend I received $46,500 OTD offer from Pohanka Acura in Chantilly, VA this was by far the best offer I received compare with other dealers for 2015 MDX (AWD with Tech package), Salesman - Rick P. [Phone number removed], I ended up not purchasing the vehicle as I am looking into car instead.

    Hello All,

    As I was test driving SUVs in my list I was also skimming Edmunds exhaustively to construct jargon to deal with salespersons..and now after I achieved my goal the past weekend (phew!) I feel much obliged to share my story.

    Our requirements: Exterior:white and interior:parchment. 2015 MDX FWD with tech package. We bought our MDX from Precision Acura in Princeton for a MSRP of 44K. We got the delivery of the vehicle next day and everything was super smooth.
    Breakdown of the process:
    Tuesday night I sent out quote request to few car dealers in the tri state area for my requirements.
    Wednesday morning and afternoon started negotiating on the phone with almost 10-12 dealers! (tht was v. exhausting). Precision agreed to our offer by EOD, faxed our docs to them on thurs and friday drove the car home.
    Also, there were a couple of other dealers who matched the pricing but a little late into the game.
    Though it seemed like a couple of days to wrap up a hefty 44K SUV, it was reading and educating my self through forum like this that made it a piece of cake :wink:

    Super gratified and enjoying my ride...vroom vroom!

    hey...

    if you dont mind driving up a bit then I know that few dealers in MD are quoting swell deals....look it up

  • Are there any rules of thumb as to how to negotiate for and value exterior accessories that need to be installed (i.e. running boards)? Should I aim to pay MSRP inclusive of installation costs?
    Anyone purchase an AWD w/ Tech package in the DC-area recently? Thanks!
  • Best quoted price for by MD dealer to me was 2014 AWD-Tech Package: $46,087 and 2014 AWD-Adv + Ent Package: $53,187. Still thinking whether this is any good. MD has 6% excise to be paid with new car purchase. Actually with above prices and with MD 6% tax my excel spreadsheet shows the OTD prices will be $48,852 and $56,378s.

    Thinking of offering OTD but will try to get 2015 instead of 2014 and the following prices for 2015 models: 2015 AWD-Tech Package: OTD my offer to dealer $46,000 and 2015 AWD-Adv + Ent Package: OTD my offer to dealer $53000 respectively. Don't know whether this will work and my offers will be accepted.
  • steverstever Posts: 52,462
    @kc_nova, I didn't notice running boards as a factory option the other day when you first posted. One thing you can do is try to get the dealer to add them to the out the door price (at a reduced rate - either some bucks off the price or free installation).
  • A Maryland dealer provided an internet quote of $46,235 on the '15 AWD+Tech recently (+tags of $99 and processing fee of $300)
  • mvenmven Posts: 5
    Hi kc_nova, may i know the dealer and sales person name ? I'm looking to buy the same.
  • mvenmven Posts: 5
    Hi mogambo1, i'm interested to know if you made the deal or if your offer was accepted and if so which dealer and contact person did you work with ? thanks for your help.
  • The best I have till NOW are the following:
    $42,187 + TTL : 2015 AWD:
    $46,087 + TTL : 2015 AWD-Tech Package:
    $53,187 + TTL : 2015 AWD-Adv + Ent Package:

    While I am trying the following inclusive of 6% MD Tax:
    $42,400 OTD : 2015 AWD:
    $46,500 OTD : 2015 AWD-Tech Package:
    $54,000 OTD : 2015 AWD-Adv + Ent Package:

    I live in Houston, Texas and I am looking to buy Base MDX FWD model.
    1) What should be the target OTD price that you recommend? I am planning to target Invoice + TTL.
    2) Has anyone bought the vehicle recently? please share your pricing details.
    3) Has anyone got a price quote recently?
  • Hello. I've just started the car shopping process and I've narrowed down my desired brand/type to the MDX AWD advance w/ent. black/parchment. I'd like to buy a 2014 but I can't find one. For a 2015 he dealer just quoted me $57,300 plus TTL "no haggle." That seems very high. So before I waste his time or mine I'd  like to get a more realistic idea of what I should hope to pay. I've read the 2015 and 2014 forums and the range varies significantly. If I tried to buy at the end of the month would it really matter? I'm in no hurry to buy/I can wait as long as necessary. Does Acura have a historically consistent sale? Presidents' Day etc? I googled it and came up with nothing. 

    Since I can wait to buy I'd prefer to do so and not get fleeced if waiting will matter. 

    Thanks for the advice!

    Hi, I contacted same dealership and they gave me pretty high prices for the same vehicle AWD-+Tech Package.

    By OTD price do you mean Price + Destination charges + All dealer fees + State Taxes + Tags and Title.

    Or OTD just means Price + Destination charges + All dealer fees


    Thanks for clarification.
  • steverstever Posts: 52,462

    OTD (should) mean everything - sales price, taxes, fees, options.

    That's why posting an OTD number on the forums isn't all that helpful for comparing deals. We all have different tax rates, some states regulate dealer fees, some of us get floor mats or towing packages. Better just to note the selling price of the car.

    Destination should be included in the selling price since that's the same in the contiguous states.

    @mogambo1, thank you.

    last night i purchased 2015 MDX + Tech pkg Front Wheel Drive from Rosenthal Acura in MD for 43,856.00 + TTD. This forum has been helpful to me.

    Sales person Alan was very good and the whole process was very smooth at the finance and was not pressured on the warranty or the special coating they mentioned, i was in and out in 2 hrs. Alan even picked me up from carmax (I traded by van). I highly recommend Rosenthal Acura.

    I didnt go for AWD and didn't think its necessary in this region and its 1700 more for it and its a gas killer and I have been driving FWD in this region without any issues.
  • mvenmven Posts: 5
    one more thing even if buy in MD, your sales tax is only charged for VA and registered for VA.
  • @mven, thank you.

    this afternoon i purchased 2015 MDX AWD + Tech pkg from Rosenthal Acura in MD for 47,274.24 OTD (44180 + 895 freight + 295 processing fee + 66.75 tag and other fees + 1837.49 va tax). This is 1000 below invoice (44,180 + 895 = 45,075/46,075). This forum has been helpful to me.

    Sales person Greg was very good and the whole process was very smooth at the finance and was not pressured on the warranty or the special coating they mentioned, i was in and out in 2 hrs. I highly recommend Rosenthal Acura.

    I went to both Chantilly (46,500 OTD not accepted) and Gaithersburg and had much etter experience with Rosenthal Acura.
