I think you negotiated a fair deal that would be close to my target estimate. I haven't heard of the $3500 incentives on 2013s either. To my knowledge, it was $1500 and then increased by $1000 to $2500. Perhaps someone heard of the extra $1000 and added that to the already increased $2500.
Enjoy the MDX!

Amen. AKA: "Dealer Fee", "Doc Fee", "Processing Fee", etc
To be clear, some state laws ALLOW these fees ("may charge", not "must charge") up to a MAXIMUM amount. In other words if a certain sales person at a certain VA dealer tells you the $395 doc fee is "REQUIRED BY LAW", said person is not being truthful about the fees - let alone probably breaking the law - and probably not being truthful about other things as well...just saying...
From the VA Motor Vehicle Dealer Board Newsletter to Dealers:
Our Consumer Assistance Division has received a number of inquiries concerning dealer processing fees. Specifically, consumers have been questioning whether or not the processing fee is a required fee.
While your dealership may have a policy that requires this fee, you cannot indicate to your customer that Virginia law or regulation requires such a fee. We have received reports from consumers that some dealers are telling customers that the processing fee is required by DMV. Charging a processing fee is a dealer’s choice. Telling customers that it is required by DMV could be viewed as a “deceptive act or practice”. Dealers who are found to have committed a deceptive act or practice are subject to license suspension or revocation.
Also, if you do charge a processing fee, Virginia Law does require that this fact and the amount be disclosed by placing a “clear and conspicuous sign in the public sales area of the dealership.” Moreover, the sign can be no smaller than eight and one-half inches by eleven inches with print no smaller than one-half inch.

It would be great if you could provide details on the location as I am in the New England area and am interested in a 2013 MDX with tech. Thanks!

Signed a 36mo, 12k/yr lease tonight for a 2013 MDX tech:
0 due at signing
no first month payment
$559/mo tax included
Includes chrome sidesteps.
Sounded like they were in hot competition with a dealer down in Houston for the number 2 spot in the country to finish out 2012.

first thank you all for sharing your experiences. Trying to negotiate the best deal on an 2013 Acura MDX with Tech Package. Best i seen on this board is 40220 + TTL.
But i'm a little confused, doesn't take much for me , if the 40220 includes destination & dealer profit. Can someone please clarify .
