If you need to buy a bunch of hooey that you would otherwise not buy, that's money wasted. They cost of the car is what you wanted and willing to pay for plus the things you need to buy to get the "low price".
At the end of the day, it's the out of pocket price that ... Homerun!

"Fall in love with the deal" You did that. Your like the vehicle, its warranted for 4 years 50,000. Review your market area for a 2011 MDX Tech/Ent true market value and see if the selling price is in the ball park.

Yes, before ttl. 43200 + ttl is what I paid. Negotiated doc fee down to $50.

Fair points. I'm comparing a CPO which might be ~$35K (Tech package, 20k miles) vs a never-been owned 2011 (Tech and Entertainment, 33 miles on it, manufacture date 9/11) which is opening at $39.5K and so I could probably go lower.
The real question is whether a car sitting in dealer inventory for ~ one year (note that its inside storage) will suffer from lack of use.
#12320 of 13274 10/6 Pricing in Orange County, CA
Oct 07, 2012 (7:32 am)
For cash prices, you should START at the following (before TTL) for 2012 new:
CostCo dealership should start you about $300 lower than this.
If a dealer won't start at these prices, call a different dealer. You can get lower prices and don't waste your time with a dealer who isn't ready to move inventory yet.
10/6 OTD price in Orange County on 2012 Tech: $44,250, including about $1000 in accessories: the cargo tray, the woodgrain shifter knob (installed) and the woodgrain steering wheel (installed). The shifter and wheel are expensive because they require factory warrantee labor when you buy them with the new car (and they fall under the new car warranty). Without accessories we were in the low $43K range OTD.
If my dealer is reading this, thanks guys You are awesome. I don't want to cut into your margin, but if I can send you more business, you're welcome

Well, not a bad price. Not sure if this will help you, but I bought my 2010 MDX with Tech (no entertainment) for $42,600 2 years ago.

So you like that car that much! May be if you keep it over 8 yrs it wouldn't matter too much then.
#12323 of 13274 Leased new 2012 MDX Tech
Oct 08, 2012 (11:13 pm)
I'm a first time Acura owner.
Leased a new 2012 MDX tech a week ago in the SF Bay Area.
MSRP:$47600 including dest. charge.
Negotiated price: $39300
Money factor: 0.0009
Redisual:$24752, 12k miles/yr
With 1k drive off, monthly payment is $518.75 (8.375% tax included)
Price is negotiated with a couple email exchange and one phone call.
I think the price could be a few hundred dollars lower had I spent half a day
haggling in the dealership, but I don't have the will and time....
and the price seems reasonable to me.
