    I know that when I was looking at cars when the current RDX came out, and was at the Acura dealer a few times and online researching, the MDX leased out quite a bit cheaper than a comparable RDX with a sticker ~$10k later.

    my wife would never want to drive a FS truck, and I really don't have much desire to do it all the time either. A compact though, would be nice as my 2nd car.

    I need to go and drive an MDX. I’ve always liked them. I think the wife would go for it.

    Settlements are 10/29 and 10/30. Once we are moved in it’s time to really get to work. I have until 12/7. The only thing I’m trying to avoid is, registration is due on 11/30. So if I’m not staying GM and transferring plates I want to have to locked up by then to avoid paying that.
    I took some pretty extensive test drives of the MDX (a V6 Advance and a Sport Hybrid) recently and expected to be let down given its imminent replacement, but I was very impressed with how it drove. The overall feel and quality of materials is a notch below most luxury competitors, but given the savings I think it's appropriate. And the actual driving experience is engaging and a bit nostalgic with the n/a V6. I really liked the Sport Hybrid model - there's quite a difference in the way it feels, so I would recommend giving that a shot.

    you should be fine going a few days over. I know that nobody is paying any attention to inspection stickers either. If somehow you got stopped and had to produce the registration, act dumb and just say it is going back in a few days. No way would I pay for a renewal! But getting it done first, certainly a good idea.

    I had a loaner MDX about a year ago. It was very nice. I just found it to be big and bulky, but that obviously does not bother you. But features and comfort wise, it was nicely loaded. Drive very well, great drivetrain.

    Thanks for that. I’d be looking at a Tech or Advance. I do like the idea of the V6 engine. That is why I like the GM options, I’m so used to the 3.6 V6 at this point.

    Could you turn in the Enclave and wait until the end of the year?

    This is one of the downsides of leasing. You have to pull the trigger on something, but inventory and the lease programs are not in your favor.

    Yes we certainly could. We won’t be going to the shore after next weekend and if I need to haul something we do have my Mom’s RAV4.

    If we are going with anything GM I would assume that I need to do that before lease end or I’ll get stuck with the dispo fee.

    I am going to call GM financial. I could also extend a month or two. It’s B2B for four years so it’s still under warranty.

    VW and Hyundai both had a window to reverse the disposal fee. One I think was 90 days. Might have to pay it then get a refund.

    I forgot you have a spare car at the house. Really no rush in that case.

    I like the MDX idea. Worth a look.

    Drove a brand new 2021 Ford Edge with the Ecoboost 4 and found it anemic to say the least, prefer the larger engine for some get up and go. It was black over black with an extra charge for the black which I found totally ridiculous! But we've never been a Ford family and the one we had really sucked! Never made it home from the dealer and had to be towed back to the dealer. The two Lincolns my folks had, well, they were o k and don't really consider them true Fords. We were basically a GM family until the late 80's when my mom started getting Mercury Marquis's, always white with a blue landau roof and that G-d awful spare tire holder on the back bumper. Think she had three of these in a row, hated riding in them as they looked like a pimp-mobile!
    Wife had a Buick Skylark two door as her first vehicle and then into a Olds Cutlass Supreme sedan which worked great with three kids under the age of four! Then she switched to foreign and hasn't looked back.

    I thought Initially Ridgeline, too, but the Ridge had... ridges ... lol... that make it look different. Not to mention no wrap around bumper, different taillight shape, and the rising bed sides. I think there are many similarities in what I posted. Not just the C pillar, but the flat wheel arches, wrap around bumper, and some other more vague hints. Take away the midline cladding of the Avalanche and it is even closer. Granted, I understand we are talking pickups here. But I guess I was hoping for more “wow.”

    Funny about pricing. A friend texted me about it before the commercial. I commented that it will probably start at $80k. After the commercial I wrote back “1000 hp! Crab walk?! Ok, maybe $110k?”

    Then found the C&D release stating the loaded launch edition will be $112k and cheaper ones will come a year later starting at $79995. I’m rather impressed with myself! LOL.

    at least on the RDX and TLX, primary updates on the Tech package are BLIS/cross path, full real leather, and upgraded tunes.

    Edit: Decided to look it up. Forgot Navi, that is the other primary feature. But looks like on the MDX it adds a lot more incidentals, including bigger wheels and various electronic goodies.

    Yeah, tech is a must IMO. Definitely going to drive one and show the wife. I’m thinking there will be some deals on them.

    Only thing I don’t like about the tech is is doesn’t have captain’s chairs in the middle. Have to step up to the advance for that.

    Get 'em while you can. Pretty good lease deals going on at the moment.

    Also, there are two different MF and incentives available

    .00042 and $4450
    or
    .00215 and $8600

    You'll have to run the numbers to see which gives you the lower payment.

    that might drop quick once you eliminate certain colors and trim levels.

    so out of 113 units, 32 are AWD tech (29) or advance(3). Vast majority are black or white. A few silver, and a few grays. No blue or bronze or any other color that actually has something passing for color!

    I am partial to this color combo of course.

    Ha ha I was just looking too. Only Advanced they have are all white over black. I’m not a fan of black interior, but could do it with a white exterior.

    In all honesty the Tech has almost everything you need. The middle row and heated wheel are the only things my wife would miss.

    The black over parchment is a nice combo too.

    small give ups to avoid the black interior. and save some money. I would have liked a couple of the advance features on our RDX, but not enough to lay out another $3,000 or whatever it was to get them.

    Yeah, I have no issues with the design. I think they stuck with the Hummer physique while pushing a strong "post-modern" vibe. It is a bit of a farce that pretty much every feature they touted in the intro video is available only on the extremely-limited-production and top-of-the-line intro series. 1000 vehicles... all reserved within minutes of the reveal. The next-highest-trim level has none of that.... it's just a ho-hum electric truck. :D

    My experience helping my friend a few weeks back was that the local dealer had an ungodly amount of MDX tech inventory - something like 70+.

    Their initial response to our offer was that we were using the wrong MF for the sale price (probably didn't love that we asked for a 4k+ dealer discount before incentives) which now makes more sense given what @michaell said above about the two different programs. We just said we'd take the offer to another local dealer who also had like 80 of them and they caved.

    Given the price points other 3 row SUVs are hitting right now, the outgoing MDX would be my top choice. Hardly a penalty box even though it is an older design.

    @breld mentioned his recent test drives of the MDX - I was able to catch up with him on the second one, the gas Advance trim.

    It's a nice vehicle, even though it is a bit on the old side. For a 3 year lease, I think it would be a good choice.

    I'll also add that AFS offers nice lease end perks. Mileage rollover of unused miles (up to 15K), additional wear/tear waiver if you lease or buy another Acura, mileage forgiveness of 50% of your overage (up to 7.5K) + 1K extra miles added to your next Acura lease.

    We took advantage of the 7500 mile RV but have a 36K mileage allotment for our current lease.

    Yeah, I have no issues with the design. I think they stuck with the Hummer physique while pushing a strong "post-modern" vibe. It is a bit of a farce that pretty much every feature they touted in the intro video is available only on the extremely-limited-production and top-of-the-line intro series. 1000 vehicles... all reserved within minutes of the reveal.

    An $80K Hummer base truck with 250 miles range due in 2024.
    vs
    A $70K Cybertruck range topper with 500 miles due end of 2021.

    GM has some work to do.

    wonder how fast that 500 mile range drops towing anything near the towing capacity. and sounds like fun trying to pull a truck with a big trailer into a supercharger!
