First let me say that I buy all my cars from dealers in the washington DC area. They sell more cars so they will go down more in price. My last purchase was a 2007 cadillac SRX (v8). Here's my deal-2010 Acura MDX tech black/black
my price 42099 including destination
my payment 616.51
nothing out of pocket except first payment 36 month lease 12,000 miles
my money factor was higher .00150 instead of .00140 because I did not want to pay tax up front and you need to do that to qualify for .00140 (read the fine print)
dealership********** RADLEY ACURA********* good experience

#10019 of 13267 Two of Same Car in Family?
Jun 28, 2010 (9:25 am)
I had a GMC Acadia which was totaled in a highway accident two weeks ago. I'm trying to figure out whether to buy or lease another Acadia or buy a foreign car.
My husband has an '08 MDX and loves it. I've been driving it recently and also like it a lot. I'm considering buying a 2010 MDX in a different color than he has.
Would it be strange to have two of the same car in the family since it's the same basic body style?
The other considerations are cargo space and third row space. We have two teens and the Acadia definitely has more room and a better third row (even though we don't use it a lot.) The third row on the MDX is good for 5 year olds and that's about it!

My thoughts only - go with another Acadia if you liked it. I have (my wife really) has the 09 MDX and we just keep missing the Acadia and we only took it on test drives. What I am most disappointed about with the 09 MDX is the transmission. I know they 'fixed' it with a 6-speed now instead of a 5-speed but... My 04 Expeditions was smoother. We would have been driving an Acadia right now had they met my price. Though I like the MDX I will not buy another one when it is time to upgrade.

I understand your situation. I came out of a 2007 Cadillac srx prior to my 10 Acura MDX. In my opinion you cant compare the Arcadia to the MDX because the trim levels are different. You are comparing a top of the line luxury honda to a mid level GM. I did not want to go with the Arcadia after coming out of the Cadillac SRX. I suggest test driving those and adding the Buick Enclave which is more aimed to compete with the luxury trim level. The new Cadillac SRX deleted the 3rd row so it was no longer an option for me. Good Luck

My sis picked one up at the dealership for around $55k in SoCal area. Its weird, she pays the full amount, and gets the financing treatment interrogation. She is happy with her purchase. If your interested ask for Jim at N*** R***** Acura. Oh and Kalolo at D** T***** had the best OTD price when she was getting quotes. But she bought cars from N*** R***** dealership before and hadn't any bad complaints about them. So we told her to go to N*** R*****.

I just picked up mine this weekend from Sunnyvale Acura (Norcal bay area dealer), settled for 43k +TTL, I got the Cherry Pearl color which is extremely hard to find as I have been looking for a it for some time. So far I have been loving the car, I took forward to go to work or anywhere else for that matter. I am getting poor gas mileage right now but I am guessing it will get better as the engine breaks in.
My advice to those who are still looking, be ready to walk out from the dealership, I did walk out from another bay area dealership as they wanted $700 more than what I paid for my car and they did not have the color I wanted. So be patient, take your time, remember the dealer is more desparate to sell it than you are to buy the car.
Goodluck and happy hunting for those still in search.

Does anyone have a clue if Acura will extend the 0.9% and 1.9% financing beyond 7/6/10? This may factor into the timing of my MDX purchase. Thanks.
