I can't remember what site listed sport- I think it was a dealer. Thanks for your info. I have heard mixed reviews about the Seattle Acura dealer so will definitely be e-mailing from here on out. Just driving down there round-trip put an extra 75 (useless) miles on my current mdx, and of course, the time. Worst part (con) was when he removed the engraving fee for $375 and expected me to be thrilled! Reminds me of all the useless extras the phone company slaps on your paperless bills, hoping you never actually read them thoroughly. Really? I read that most profit margin is 18-20%, so please be sensible. I negotiated my last car just fine and had a great experience with Bellevue Cadillac. Why can't Acura be reasonable?

Seattle Acura. From various postings, it appears Lynnwood Acura gives the lowest quotes. I wonder if they would take your offer on Dec.31st. It's crazy that the NW appears to pay the highest for the MDX's. Even Ca. Dealers have offered 42,700 for 2011 tech, and a person in Queens, NY got a 2012 tech otd for 43,842! Another thing Seattle Acura said was Costco price is 42,992 for 2012 base, yet someone on this forum said it was 40,300 on 2012 base. I need to verify. I always thought the rule was dealers would negotiate more with used cars, (2011 mdx w/12,500miles,) but my quote was not only insulting, but plain stupid!

I got 2012 MDX with Tech for 42,900 from Goodson Acura couple of weeks ago. I didn't have the Towing package.
#11509 of 13291 2012 MDX base--Costco price?
Dec 13, 2011 (2:41 pm)
I've been quoted $41,595 as the "Costco" price for a 2012 MDX base and OTD as $44,700. However, on earlier posts I've seen the Costo price as $40,300 for a 2012 base. I thought the whole point of Costco was to get fleet pricing nationwide. Is there a different price depending on your state? I'm in Texas.

That sounds like fantastic pricing. I'm interested in your out-the-door with the various fees, etc (not sales tax). Also, did you have a trade on that deal? $42,900 is a almost a thousand less than my deal without towing. I haven't seen any other comments on pricing as low as yours... Did you get charged the VPS, Document and Dealer Inventory fees?

what i got was a 2012 MDX with Tech + Wheel Locks + Tinting + Body Moudlings for 42,900$. I did not have a trade-in.
Of the various fees, i was only able to get the VPS removed.
The final OTD was little less than 46k.

I have been quoted the exactly price as you got as the "Costco" price. I am in Texas as well.

Not sure why you get different costco pricing but this is what I see even today - http://www.costcoauto.com/new_cars/buildvehicle.aspx?trimid=329816 you can print this and show it to the dealer and work your deal on top of it. Acura of Manhatten accepted this price and agreed to throw in accessories (check my earlier post) for free. Again 40,300 doesn't include tax and doc fee etc... Hope this helps.
All the best...
