#11753 of 12875 where to get a 2012 tech for $40K?
Apr 30, 2012 (9:47 am)
Looks like several people on here were able to get a tech for around $40K, will any of you share your locations? I am negotiating in the Seattle area and can't get them below $43K, before TT&L. I don't mind road tripping a bit to save a few thousand. Thanks!

I agree with you... The folks have mentioned price at $36.9K for 2012 Base Model. But it's probably with conquest/Flex cash which I am not qualified for. so the new one will probably cost me around $38K. But the MDX I reserved starts service in 09/2011. So with additional one year warranty, it's covered longer than the New MDX. Not sure whether my logic is right...... Haven't pick up the car yet..Still can back off...That's a really hard decision for me.

I am also looking in the Seattle area for a 2012 MDX Tech and can't seem to get them down below $43k... I'm thinking of calling around to Portland area dealerships saying I will pay $40k and see who bites. Not sure why Seattle area dealerships demand such a premium.

Where are these folks getting 36.9k for base model? I am in Dallas/Fortworth area, the best I can get is around 38.5k. Could someone advise on how to get a better one?

I am in the Bay Area - was at Acura Marin and I am in negotiations right now for a Tech with rails and roof rack
Putting down 20k
They want 481 / month (1.9%, 60 mo) which, if I calculate TTL at 10%, comes to about 43.2k base
I told them I want to Tech with rails, rack and 18 inch wheels for 475 / month out the door which comes out to about 40.8K base .... thinking they won't go for it!
Looking for your local knowledge bayman!

Very difficult to compare the way you have priced out.
Also it does'nt makes sense or the dealer is taking you to cleaner for BASE package
481 per month 1.9% for 60 month = 27.5K in initial loan amount
Add 20K down payment = 47.5K This is what the car will cost you after principal and int.
Subtract int over 5 years = 47.5K - 1300 = 46200 is your OTD cost
Subtract 10% TTL = 46.2 - 4200 = 42K...your cost for the car alone
I might be off by $50 to $100...
BASE MDX for 42K...dont think its a good deal.
For Tech with roof rack and rails it is in line with what other folks are paying.
You are negotiating for monthly pmt/loan...not the car.
As always the advise on the internet is worth what you paid for
Pls do your own calculations..I may be off

Yes, I was thinking of doing the same...it looks they had more inventory than the Bellevue folks, so hopefully they will negotiate a little more. Please let me know what you come up with and I will do the same.
