    I am in WA state as well and got a dealer to agree to $800 over invoice for tech package. No dealer installed extras. Good deal or not? Should I try to get them to throw in the protection package for free or am I going to kill the deal by doing that?

    I'm looking for a MDX with Sport and Ent Package in Southern CA. I'm interested in knowing if anyone knows any dealer who would give it under $44K?

    Or I would like to know what would be the reasonable price?

    Thanks a lot, guys.

    I am getting prices on the Honda Pilot from between 23000 to $29000 on the EX-l navi model. I know the MDX is more car but is it $12000 more car? Does it handle that well?

    Please refer to the posting the Testengineer wrote along with my posting on July 14th. This will assist you with your accessories to put on the MDX once you have chosen the model which appears to be the TECH,Sport,Ent pkg.
    This invoices (without any added extra) for 43,326 plus the destination charges of 670. This comes to 43,996.
    Do not play with any attempt of theirs that suggest processing fees. Your cost is invoice+ destination fees + applicable sales tax,tile, and registration (about 9.4%).
    this should be close to 48,132.00 OTD.
    Avoid ant tries to get them to budge on the warranty items. You're better off getting a booklet on their services and parts from the counter at zero extra cost to you. I would also make sure you get a loaner at any time you have your car in for service and try for lifetime oil changes or at least 8 of them. These MDX's don't require a change for the first 8K miles.

    Only you can decide if the improvments in the MDX are worth the extra money after test driving both.

    The MDX has a substantially more powerful motor and better suspension than the pilot. It has a larger interior with better interior treatments.

    Etc, etc, etc, etc.

    $35K for a 2-3 year old car is definitely a lot. As I said, a dealer quoted $29500 for a 05 Base with just 17K miles - and that was before any negotiation. He had it listed for $32K.

    I am looking around - 04 or later with < 30K miles and preferably Touring package for $27-28K. Will let you know if I have some luck.
  • cal_doodcal_dood Posts: 8
    A test drive is the best way to decide.

    I own a Acura TL and am in the market for a CPO MDX. Once you get used to luxury/near-luxury brands, it's difficult to go to back.

    Then again - depends on your usage and budget. Pilot is a very very good vehicle too.

    Hello Mpj27,
    Have u pull the trigger yet? $40500 is a good price for me. I just wonder where did you get the quote from. Please email me at
  • viocynviocyn Posts: 2

    Can you send me the name of the salerep and the dealer to my email,

    I am in fact interested in adding the sports running boards, roof rail, cross bars and the auto day/night mirror to my sport/Ent MDX. The best Price for the vehicle I've got so far is $44,800 and for the accesories are $721, $262.50, $360.40 and $354.60 respectively, including labor and installation. Of course, it'll be factory install. I think I want to contact your Rep!!!

    Thanks, Jim.

    My wife had a 2004 Pilot, which she traded in for a 2005 Oddesey 18 months later, not because she didn't like the Pilot, but because the reason she got the Pilot just didn't work, the third row. Although the third row is very good, we have younger kids and the minivan just works better. Having said that, the Pilot was "fine", I couldn't really complain about it. Safe, reasonably peppy, etc etc. I just really couldn't find anything I liked about it either. Very vanilla. I didn't really like it very much, especially loaded down on the family trip.I thought it just didn't handle very well. I understand they put more horses in it since 2004. I just bought a 2007 MDX Sport. WOW! I drove it expecting it to drive like the Pilot, not a chance despite the shared components. Buy the Sport. The suspension is fantastic. It drives so well, it truly drives like a large sports car. The suspension just sticks to the road. So, to answer your question. Yes, it's worth the money. And, if you load out a Pilot you will spend quite a bit of money. I bet the difference comparably equiped is more like 5K, if that. If you are looking at a moderately equiped Pilot, then the MDX will be much more $$. Good luck. Drive them and decide for yourself. You really can't go wrong with either one.

    For anyone who is curious in the Maryland area - I paid 39,500 + destination for an MDX with the tech package. This was through an internet saleswoman at Rosenthal Acura in Gaithersburg. Hope someone can use that to save some money.
  • daveleidavelei Posts: 3
    I got the samiliar price. $39,500 + $700 accessory (running board, cargo cover & tray, wheel locks)

    Picked up my new 2007 MDX Tech yesterday from Portland (Oregon) Acura. It has the following options, some of which I had installed:

    NW Package (Wheel Locks, All Weather Floor Mats, Cargo Mat)
    Roof Rails
    Cross Bars
    Running Boards (not sport)

    OTD Price: $42,712

    I traded e-mails with the two Portland area dealers as well as the Salem and Eugene stores. All of them told me they were close to the TMV price for our area. I actually visited Portland Acura and Ron Tonkin Acura in Beaverton, but felt most comfortable with the staff at Portland Acura. At Ron Tonkin, the internet manager seemed irritated when I showed up without an appointment, and when I said that I wanted a price close to invoice, I got a long lecture on how much overhead they have. I finally had to say &#147;I get it&#148; several times before he stopped.

    I had a generally good experience with Portland Acura and recommend them, but my one suggestion is to make sure you&#146;re crystal clear in terms of the out-the-door price you plan to pay before you go close the deal. We had slight miscommunication in terms of whether the price quoted over e-mail included the document and title fee ($218).

    Happy hunting.

    OTD Price: $42,712 ???
    Does this include taxes ??. Hard to believe.
  • devilduckdevilduck Posts: 2
    Correct, OTD $42,712. No sales tax in Oregon. I'm thinking it's a decent deal for the NW -- a lot of other areas of the country seem to get much closer to or below invoice.

    I am looking for 2007 MDX Tech/Ent package w/ Nimbus Gray/Ebony color. A dealer from NJ gives the following quote:

    MSRP is $46,265

    MDX with locate charge
    $2,960.58 TAX
    $189 DOC FEE
    $342 FOUR YRS REG
    $7.50 TIRE TAX

    OTD $45,793.08

    Is this a good buy? Price is $200 over invoice. Any room to bring it down further, say $500 - $1000 down?

    Any suggestion on how to negotiate some freebies, e.g. cargo net, wheel cover, free oil change? Do you ask upfront now, or wait till you pick up after finalizing the price?

    Thanks in advance for your help. This is a great forum.
  • cvistacvista Posts: 54
    In NJ Don't pay above invoice.
  • stetsonbustetsonbu Posts: 14
    Hi kmall,

    Is that around invoice (how much above or below)? I also live in Maryland (Baltimore) and do NOT want to pay over invoice. If you don't mind, what is the name of the Internet Sales Lady you worked with?

  • mdxtechmdxtech Posts: 3
    Great forum....I've learned a lot from everyone on the forum and I thank you for that. I thought that I would share my purchase information with folks.

    I closed the deal on June 31st but took delivery this week. In the time between putting money down on the car and its delivery Acura started an incentive program of 2.9% financing so I was able to get that as well. I thought this was a pretty good price for washington state. What do folks think?

    $40,850 including wheel locks, all season mats, door guards and cargo tray. This is before tax and licensing.
  • andy300mandy300m Posts: 88
    mdxtech, is that for a tech package? If so, thats pretty good. The extras that you are describing sounds like the NW protection package.
    I just leased a 2007 mdx with tech package, wheel locks and all season mats also here in Seattle. The agreed upon value of vehicle - 41053. That's 800 over invoice. I know that people can get these at or even below invoice, especially on the east coast, but this was the best I could find around here. Did I get an ok deal for our market?
  • mdxtechmdxtech Posts: 3
    andy300m - my deal is for a tech.

    I can't really comment on your lease deal because its not directly comparable to a straight purchase and I never really researched leasing.

    The deal I got did include the NW protection package but it also included the door guards.
  • andy300mandy300m Posts: 88
    mdxtech, I think you got a great deal. Leasing is comparable to purchase in a way that you also negotiate the price of the vehicle, but other variables (like money factors and residuals) matter also.
    Which dealership was this at?
  • sorry guys i haven't had any time to update.

    we had a deal at ramsey, nj for black / black sport/enter.
    but they were having trouble looking for one

    the next day, open road of wayne,nj called my fiancee
    and matched the price ramsey, nj gave us. So we decided to go with wayne, nj instead since it was closer for the drive.

    we got the black / taupe (sport / enter.) instead

    remote start
    body side molding
    side step

    since we didn't have time for anything,
    they sent a guy to drop us the mdx to my fiancee. ^_^
    (by the way, we had a trade-in car, so the guy took the trade-in car back to the dealership!)

    my advice in nj area.... if you guys are near wayne / ramsey nj... go bargain between the two dealership and let them fight to drop the price (but make sure you have all the price / accessories / numbers on writing!) (hehehe)

    drive out $48,997 (tax title, everything included)
    What do you think of this price?
