Just brought home a 2020 Acura MDX SH-AWD base model. Added: remote start, roof rails, cross bars and protection pac (all weather mats, cargo tray and wheel locks). I did some preliminary email shopping and narrowed down to two dealerships. After some back and forth, went with the first dealership. I paid a little over $36,100 out the door (including tax, tags and fees), but added an extended warranty package. I believe I got a great price for the SUV, but not so sure about the warranty...Mechanical failure: $2,828 for 6 yrs/120K, Road Hazard tire and Wheel: $1,053 for 60 mo; dent Protection: $769; Resistall: $734 --> Total: $5,384+tax

I see that I can buy an "American Honda factory-backed warranty" for 6yrs/120,000mi for $1,555 from www.curryacuracare.com...has anyone bought a warranty from them before? Is it the same as buying an Acura Extended warranty through the dealership?

    Yes, it's the same warranty from Curry.

    Frankly, $5384 for extras is a little ridiculous. Put the $5384 in a savings account, and use as needed. You can see already how they marked up the price on the warranty vs. what Curry charges.

    But, if the deal is done, you may have a problem. If the warranty your dealer sold you is the same one that Curry offers, once you cancel that warranty, you can't re-purchase it. (from anyone)

    Thank you for your response. I read the contract that said I could cancel it, however, I didn't see anything about not being able to repurchase it. My warranty is through Fidelity Warranty Services. I will reach out to Curry and see what they say.

    Then that wouldn't apply. Curry only sells genuine Honda/Acura warranties

    What was your tax rate? That looks like a great deal minus all the extras.

    got the car 37 k out of door for base Red Acura FWD. Does Acura comes with any free oil change as this dealer did not give any?

    No, maintenance is not included on an Acura lease.
