did you get any accessory items such as roof rail, bumper protector or running board within that price?

In that case (8.875% tax) I'd say $40k OTD for you is good and around what my target would be in your market. That would be $36,739 + TT&L.
At the dealer's offer of $42k OTD, that would be $38,576 + TT&L. I think there is still margin to share.

I am looking for 2013 MDX w/tech, wondering if this price point is achievable?
Invoice = $43,455
Dealer Incentive = 2500
Dealer Hold back (3% of Invoice 43,455) = 1304
Invoice with Incentive = 43,455 - (2500 + 1304) = $39,651
Dealer additions might be doc fee (~500) + Dealer profit (~500) = $1000
Selling price = ($39,651 + $1000) = $40,651 + TTL

I was able to get a similar deal (40,400) for a 2012 MDX w/ Tech in NJ about 6 months ago, so I would say it is definitely possible.
#12458 of 12852 2012 MDX with Tech Package
Dec 18, 2012 (9:39 am)
Hello new to the process. I have recieved the following quotes on the 2012 MDX
2012 MDX base $37158 + 145 doc fees
2012 MDX w/tech package $40121 + 145 doc fees.
Is this a good price?
There is just a few weeks left in December...do you feel I can get some more movement on the offers? I received these offers from using the truecar site. Will Costco offer a better price? I am purchasing in the Indianapolis area. The dealer has about 15 to 20 2012's on the lot. The salesperson told me they are a volume dealer.
Also I have a trade in. the dealer is saying that they will not match the Kelly Blue Book price because it is too high....thoughts on Kelly BLue Book vs other sites?
Any help is appreciated......I have been out of the market for new cars for 19 years....having loved my Lexus SC300 so much just didn't feel the need!!!

According to Edmunds Acura dealer hold back is only 2% not 3%. Also do you think a dealer can come below 3% profit margin.
43455 (invoice) - 2500 (Dealer incentive) - 938 (2% holding base MSRP) = 40017 + 1200 (3% profit) + 300 (Advertisement) + 895 (Destination fee) = 42412
I believe anything below $42,400 is a good deal. What do you think?

Edmunds listed Acura holdback as 3% in the past, now it lists as 2%. Truecar and other sites list as 2 or 3%. Unfortunately, I can't find an official holdback number on the Acura website and the dealers aren't that forthcoming with Acura numbers - be it holdback or other volume discounts that come back from the manufacturer after the sale. Either way, we're talking less than $500.
Given the MDX Tech was selling for around $39k (incl profit, dealer fees, destination, etc) in the last few months, I'd say $42,400 is high, but that's just me. Granted 2013s are listed as ~$200 higher invoice and incentives are $500 less, so I could see $40k or so + TT&L as a "fair" price if you want the 2013 model year.
I'm also not saying all dealers would do a deal like this. You need to find the volume dealers who are spreading overhead across many more sales. The low-volume dealers are going to need to pass along those costs onto the buyer. If anyone wants to pay those costs because they like the service/convenience, I say to each his/her own. I'm not one of those buyers.

Decent price in the TX market if thats their first offer. My target would be $40k + TT&L on a 2013 Tech, but TX dealers were all a few hundred higher than the coasts last I checked.
I don't know Houston - which dealer? May be worth giving a call to Mac Churchill in Ft Worth to see if they'll beat the deal.
#12463 of 12852 Good price for NJ?

Hello, I just got a quote for a '13 MDX base for $37,987 + TT&L in NJ. Is this a good price, or should I try to get it down some more? Thanks!
