Congrats on your new MDX. I service my wife's 2010 TSX at Acura of Westchester & you will be extremely pleased with both their service, availability of loaner cars, & competitive pricing.
We used to live in Hartsdale & would drive out of our way (to the other side of the county) to service her car there. Now we moved to Stamford, CT & still service her car there even though it is further than a few other dealerships.

I was deciding between brand new Pilot and a used Acura and finally decided to get used 2010 or 2011 acura with less than 20,000 miles on them.
Can anyone suggest how to base the prices for Used Cars. I tried looking up on various used cars site and price seems to be almost like pretty new. any input please

Thanks to all of you posters as you assisted me and my wife with our purchase of our new Acura mdx. Got the advanced at $ 48k (plus tx and license) and added a warranty for 100000 miles 8 year, no deductible for $ 1850. (It was a good trade off of me getting a good price/ purchase and they still made some money too.)
And for Calif this was amazing. However, when we walked into the dealership I had printed out what all of you excllent posters had presented here and the salesperson noted the three pages of posts as we sat down.
He was an excellent "old time" salespersn and he did not try in any way to play games, but then he observed the paper work I brought with me. We got all the extras and are very satisified with the process.
Oh as an added bonus, we also got two tickets to the movies, "Thor" for this next tuesday evening. My wife and I will dine out and then take in the show.
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR EXCLLENCE AND SHARING-IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Good luck to all and stay safe.
#11163 of 13273 2011 MDX Tech/Ent
May 03, 2011 (5:51 am)
I got the following assurance for a price (Tech/ENT MDX for $44,295 (including dest charge) + TTL) from 3 dealers in the NJ/NY/CT area. I'll mention two of them, b/c the third one (in NJ) I had limited discussions with and told me right off they did not have the color I wanted. The other two-- Acura Milford CT and Paragon in Queens, NY. I did most of my work on the internet/email. I got to the price I wanted and was told to "come on down." But the only thing was, each of the three did a stutter-step when I went to get the color and interior color that I wanted, despite letting them know early on.
When I got there (The Queens, NY dealer that is...), they said how does a white one sound? How about this grey on with a scratch on it hood (we can buff that out). No thanks.
I am truly sorry I took the trip down to Queens. Back in CT, where I live, and even worse experience with the Milford dealership. The internet sales manager at Milford could not even answer basic questions directly. It took him three tries at answering the question "do you have the car in this color?" Then he backtracked on an assurance that he could meet the price above (this assurance was made by one of his staff). When I called him on it he never answered the simple question: "Can you meet or beat the price?" He said he would have to escalate after I gave him a CC number, really?... Come by, blah, blah, blah.
Sorry, no deal I thought.
Let me explain my simple alternative to this dirty back and forth game they were playing (It's not a great one if you are dead set on geeting the MDX -which is a great car by the way, but I was caught between the MDX and the X5, which I did a lot of groundwork on as far as price).
On the way home from Queens, back to CT, I picked up the cell phone and bought an BMW X5. Good price for the car (crossing my fingers on the reliability), but it is gorgeous and a 2012. 6K more, but what the heck.
Thank you aweful Acura dealerships and sales people for making me see what my future would hold if I was forced to interact with your dealership going forward (service).

Thanks for the response. I had the same experience with dealers in NC and SC; their attitude can be summed up as "I know you can buy it cheaper, but not within 250 miles." Pohanka was willing to deal in a more reasonable fashion. Did it all via email and they were decent on the trade-in too. I drove even further than you - 6 hours!

Sounds like a great deal! Which Cali dealership did you ultimately purchase from?

Which CA dealer you used? It seems finance rate has increased to 1.9% (36 months) and 2.9% (60 months). Prices are shooting up because of less inventory. May be it is better to wait for a month or so. Any opinion?
