Justin - I hear you on the $ difference. I feel the same way on the base vs. Tech. 3200 for Nav and a few other minor differences is a big chunk of cash. I'd love to have vented seats that come on the Advance though. Congrats on the X5, 243k is an accomplishment in my book.
For what it's worth, I have a buddy with a 03 MDX which has almost 250k. No major issues.
I plan on visiting my Acura dealer tonight. Part of my deal will be for the GM to put in writing that they will replace the torque convertor if it starts acting up. Acura has issued a TSB to reflash the ECM to adjust the shift parameters, however if this does not work or the TQ still proves to give me symptoms over time I want a something in writing that I'm not going to get the run around.
For piece of mind, see if you can negotiate a better power train or at least a trans warranty. I'm shooting for 7yr/100k.
Good luck, let us know how it goes.

I still have that offer of $41,400 for MDX with Tech package. The conquest cash wouldn't apply to me; otherwise it would be at the point where I would bite. Is it a half-way decent?

Roughly 6100 off, don't think you can do much better than that.

Not sure if it is allowed to post dealer's info here. I got my car from Norm Reeves Acura of Mission Viejo (SoCal). Can not be happier with their service.

I am amazed at the prices I am seeing here. I live in the DC area. Radley has great prices, but my local dealer matched them
I was no where near as good as what I see on this board. I should have come here first.
2012 MDX with Tech and roof rails.
Edmunds has the invoice as 44500
I got mine for $43400 plus 6% MD Tax for a total of $45200
I traded in a 2006 Volvo XC90. Kelly Blue book trade was between 13-14k. Carmax only offered me 11k. The dealer offered me $13600. Online classified for my old Volvo from private sellers were going between $13k-$16k. I think I did OK with the trade value
If invoice is 44500 and I got it for $1100 below invoice, How are some people getting them for $4k below invoice. Something doesnt add up.

Just because you see something here does not always mean it's 100% reality. Everyone's deal and situation are different, including tax, etc.
You got a great deal, and also remember this. To get a trade value at the upper end of KBB, there is not room to go any further below invoice, etc. on the new car. You saved the most and got a great trade, the best combination.

see my post on what I paid for the exact car in the DC area. I decided against the $1000 for the advanced boards from the dealer. I got my on Ebay from some dealer. New and free shipping. Ordered them Sunday, delivered them Wed. I just installed them and it took about 90 mins. I paid $400 for the advanced boards. They are nice, but now that they are installed, I almost wish I went with the sport boards.

Does your $41,400 quote for the MDX w/tech include tax and all fees?

Apr 12, 2012 (11:18 pm)
I'm new here. Did a lot of research on 2012 MDX with tech package. I got mine today for $41,750 before TTL + accessories. Bought the car in Northern California.
Total OTD was $47,448.98, which included roof rails, body side molding, door edge film, rear bumper applique, and advanced running board. I also managed to talk the dealer into giving me 3 years free maintenance included in the price.
Got it in Grigio Metallic with Black interior.
Do people actually buy the extended warranty? Is it really worth it?
