Ok, so now you have a special place to vent your frustrations over the price people pay for the their MDX. Doudoudid, I'm not sure what you were trying to say but I think you meant something to the effect that MDX owners are a bunch of mindless zombies that obey Acura by paying MSRP. Do I have that right? Since you had no real substance in your post I'll just ignore it. Leokadia1, no matter how you do the math, buying an MDX in the USA is not $10k more for the same thing in Canada. Now, since you didn't do your homework like I told you to, I did it for you. I checked out what a fully loaded Ford Explorer EB edition would cost. In reading the Infiniti Qx4 board, I saw that someone had just bought a Ford Explorer EB for $33.4K (including dealer discount of $1,500.00). Now in comparing the MDX at its base price of $35K ( which has most options) to the Ford, you can see the MDX is 1.6K more then the Ford. You said that you would not buy an MDX until you get $2,500 off MSRP, which means what you want is to pay $32500, or $900 less then a similarly equipped Ford.

IMO, it the price doesn't fit don't buy it.

I paid MSRP and had to also add rear mud guards and wheel locks. I financed a lot of it with a 6.65%/72 month loan. While I have become accustomed to the 2 tier pricing (MSRP and Invoice), doing comparison shopping, I think the MDX is reasonably priced compared to others in its class.

Paid MSRP for base model that I picked up in January 2002 and paid a reduced price ($75)for the roof rack. The MDX is well worth the price.

#6 of 13277 Pricing by Fax

I was looking for a 2002 MDX touring, so I decided to fax all the dealers within a 100 miles radius.
Out of the 24 dealers that received faxes, eight responded. Four provided MSRP prices. Three offer MSRP plus $2k-$3k of non-negotiable options. One wanted $3k over sticker. And one single one offered $500 under MSRP.
For all of them there was a projected waiting period of 2-6 months.
I'm now waiting to place an order for a 2003 MDX. I will contact the dealers that responded with reasonable numbers and see what I can get...
I do agree that, it is a funny feeling waiting for a vehicle and having to pay MSRP (I have always negotiated succesfully a discount of no less than $1k-3K). But after reviewig the "current" alternatives I see no other SUV for me than the MDX or a Pilot. The features fit my family to a tee. Seating for Seven, Good Power, AWD, Does not look like or is a minivan, good value for the money, etc.

That's great, I think $800 under MSRP is a decent amount. Especially next to prices the Pilot is selling for.

I paid $30,980 for a 2003 Pilot Silver EX-L, $4,220.00 less than a base 2002 MDX. Plus its 240 HP 3.5 v6 uses regular gas!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Waiting for Honda really paid off, and I'm driving a 2003 not a 2002!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
