Good suggestion - Pohanka is the same dealer that I shopped when we were considering another MDX (went for X5d). Ask for the sales manager or internet sales manager. They were aggressive on pricing. We are in MD, and also went to Rosenthal. Think we could have gotten them to match Pohanka's deal, but they started off a little higher (although processing fees were lower).

Yes, I believed I saw your post and that's how I know about pohanka. Thanks for the information.
I dealt with two sale persons. The first one (with internet sale manger title) tried to play game with me and finally I got another sale person's name from my friend and he was able to offer me $1000 lower. My deal ended up with two sale persons on the order. I might be able to get a better price if I dealt with the second person from the beginning? No way to tell now.
Radley in VA was also good. The internet sale manager at Rosenthal is very nice and gave me a lot of advice, when I go an offer from pohanka on the last 2012 MDX base. Didn't get my car from Rosenthal was because they did not have 0% APR(at least not on their website). For 5 years, the saving is about $5xx.

A $1,200 amount for profit is high, IMHO. Also, advertising is just more profit so the total profit is $1,500. I would offer $41,000 and see how they react. What is there to be lost? There is no reason to let them know you would go as high as $42,412. Give them your base price without profit and let them counter offer. I doubt they need $1,500 in profit, especially at this time of year.

Additional dealer profit, often called a documentation fee to confuse buyers into thinking it is required or is a real cost to the dealer, is capped in Maryland at $199, recently increased from $99. Did not take the dealers long to increase. Not sure why the so called documentation costs doubled overnight, makes no sense if they are (which they are not) really cost? In Virginia the cap is $399, I believe (outrageous). My experience is any Northern Virginia dealer will lower their expectations in this area for Maryland buyers without much urging. Some even advertise this.

In the Atlanta area they are charging $599 for doc fee! Is this not a "real" fee?

Hi java5 do you mind sharing the dealer from where you got this price on mdx?

Purchased an 2013 MDX tech for $40200 + TTL with 0.9 APR in New England Area.
Edmunds listed Invoice Price ($43,455)
I assume, Dealer Incentive (2500) - 3 % Dealer Hold back from MSRP (1409), which comes to $39546
I was told by the dealers to add these:
Destination charge + Doc fee + Dealer profit
In my opinion, this is a good deal. I was very happy with the dealership too, will recommend them to anyone interested.
FYI, I don't know if the Dealer Incentive is 3500 as someone had mentioned earlier.

Assuming $40,200 (i.e. before TT&L) includes destination, doc fee and additional profit?
