I also like the TL Advance SH-AWD.
Suggestion: Try the TL SH-AWD Tech 6-speed manual. Acura slushboxes suck, IMO. Seriously, we have an MDX and now that we have a BMW X5d with a good, responsive automatic, I hate driving the MDX. But I remain a fan of Acura's manual transmissions. Have a 2004 TL 6-speed that's still fun to drive and my old S2000 was a great gearbox. I drove the 2012 TL SH-AWD 6-speed manual. It's no 335i, and it's still too nose heavy in spite of AWD, but at least with the 6-speed manual it is the closest thing Acura (or Honda) has to a true sports sedan. The automatic wouldn't make it into my garage at a half price discount, but the 6-speed manual is a decent car.

Prices for the MDX remain pretty strong.
I've had several offers for 2013 MDX Techs between $41k and $42k. I live in the Southern US.
(With proper haggling and concise chatter, I'm certain people can get the price into the $40,500 range. Great price for this car IMO.)

I think it's because after the new year 1/2/13, dealer has less incentive money. All the quotes on 2013 model should be up maybe 1.5k more; 2012 model maybe 3k more since that's the incentive offered from Acura ended 1/2/13.
Maybe MLK or President's day has some sale, but may not be as good as Christmas/New Year's.
I'll try to test drive it this weekend and get a quote. There is carsdirect.com offer quote too. If you like the price, can buy it from them, locate a car in local dealer something like that. The price is a good starting point to negotiate. It up 1.5k yesterday compare the day before.

According to Edmunds, Acura extended the rebates for another couple months - $2500 on the '13s and $3000 on the '12s through 3/4/2013 - so prices shouldn't have changed.
Add to that the 2014 model should be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this month, so dealers are about to have an out-of-date model on their hands.
I think the pendulum is swinging in favor of buyers vs. sellers.

Thanks pastready2buy. I was ready2buy since Spring 2012, but am still looking. Can't please everyone, so I might look at x1 again. But will wait til they have excellent price and stuff. Like MDX but it guzzles gas like a V8. Toyota has a perception of reliability, but that doesn't mean it's better than other cars. I'm still trying to buy a Japanese car and see if it's reliable and fun to drive. So let's see how willing is Acura to deal.
Some salesmen said the invoice price is what they paid the manufacturer and I believe it. As in some industries that's necessary for paperwork, etc. It's disturbing to try and buy a car leaving the dealer with no profits, and it is not right to believe the salesmen's claim that each time I go in their office or test drive a car will lower theirs earnings by the factor of visits. Gone are the theory of work ethics. And the dealers certainly want to condition buyers mind to see invoice price vs MSRP, and wait for manufacturer's rebates and incentives to get 'the best deal'. There's nothing wrong with it, it's marketing.

I got a quote today 2013 base around $37600+ttl ( I can't believe all fees tax total Most $4k!! In nj only 7% tax but seems an extra $155 some nj supplemental tax. Never heard)
We are trying to get 41k all in for a base 2013. Is it a good price? They have not agree and we are still thinking about it.
It's a nice car but 3row is small. With 2 car seats, not sure how to go to the 3row.
