Anyone know what price will 2014 MDX be? Will it stand very firm while 2013 modle has a lot of discount? 2014 has a nicer look but more importantly, it has more space, easier access to the 3rd row seats. but it didn't say larger leg room for 3rd row seats, just said more leg room for 2nd low seats. Also sounds like a safer car. Safty feature enhanced. If price is similar to 2013 with all these discount prices, 2014 is the way to go. Otherwise, 2013 is a great deal. Any suggestions?

2013 Acura MDX with Tech Package + Navigation + premium leather + tinted window + car mat $240 value for OTD $42,800.
I wish this dealer is in NJ. She did very well.

Is $35,500 (+ttl) a good price for a 2012 MDX base model (certified) with 5000 miles? Thanks! I appreciate the help.

TT&L varies based on state, municipality, etc. That's why reporting OTD pricing on this forum isn't very useful. Folks should quote Price + TT&L.
You can call your local DMV to get a good estimate. Quick google search produced:
CT DMV Fees: link
CT Vehicle Tax: link
I just glanced at them, but I'd say a couple hundred bucks for fees and 6.35% tax for around $39k OTD on a $36.5k sales price for CT.

I live in CT. Tax in Fairfield County is 6.35%. New plates & registration are $350.

May not be very good deal since already has 5k miles. You can flip a few pages in the front, I remember someone got 2013 base brand new in Dec for around $36k before tax and fees.

this is my ultimate offer:
msrp + destination $44,175.00
price excluding tax, title, fees $36,700.00
fees (conveyance, acquisition, reg, doc, etc.) $1,800.00
FINAL OTD PRICE $38,500.00
difference btwn price and residual $13,762.00
depreciation fee (difference divided by 36) $382.28
finance fee (price + residual * mf) $63.24
monthly before tax $445.52
monthly AFTER tax $473.81
36 month, 10K mile lease....doing my research here, figured $40092 invoice minus 2% holdback of base MSRP minus $2500, is $36,708, so they don't make or lose anything here really
also, are the fees something i pay then and there separately with a cash/or check or are they rolled over into the "OTD price"?
is there a reasonable chance of this happening or am i making a fool of myself
Thanks for reading
#12545 of 13274 2012 MDX warranty/dent/paint/leather coverage pricing
Jan 19, 2013 (12:48 am)
I recently bought a 2012 MDX ~ 3 mos ago in September in Houston, Texas with a 7yr/100K warranty/extended service contract for ~ $2600. After reading the forum and calling up other local dealers I'm finding much better deals and would like to cancel this warranty. Not sure what the procedure is to cancel, if there are any restrictions that come along with cancelling it, and if I am allowed to buy another Acura Care warranty from another dealer once I have cancelled this original one.
Also is there a difference between the online Acura care warranty sold Vs in house, and does it make a difference in the level of care you get if you buy at a different dealer or online? Any advice/insight would be greatly appreciated.
The Pricing I received from another dealer was;
7yr/120k - $1970
8yr/120k - $2175
dent+tires (road hazard coverage I think)+wheels (pothole damage or bent rims
replacement) - $490
Xylon (sp?) fabric/leather (not including tears) and paint coverage for 5 yrs - $495
Any thoughts on the pricing? Are they close to cost and will I be able to buy Acura Care again if I cancel? Are there any reliable third party warranties if I can't buy another Acura Care extended service contract?
I'm new to these forums so I'm not sure of the proper etiquette, whether its OK to post specifics about dealerships, finance officers that are fair to deal with, etc. but if anyone is interested I'll be glad to pass on whatever info I have. Thanks in advance for your help.
