I'm on my third AWD MDX. The first one blew the transmission at about 80k, but I had been having trouble before the warranty expired so Acura replaced it for free. Then just over 100k, the engine started leaking oil, so I traded for a 2004 and never had any trouble with it, nor with the 2009 that came next.
I'm not able to find a 2014 Advance MDX. My dealer doesn't seem to want to reward loyalty.

that sounds like a great deal. do you know what the costco discount was on car itself for your deal? interested to know what accessories you end up getting with this deal?

Can you please send the dealer info and contact name, I won't mind to purchase the car from SD if it is a great deal like yours. Really really appreciate it! Thanks.

I am in Colorado and the Costco program says the 2014 MDX model is too new for Costco pricing. So I am thinking about purchasing one from San Diego area. Can you send me the dealer you worked with?

When you are looking for 2014 MDX prices on Costco Auto, enter 91950 as zip code and Ball Auto Center is offering the the base MDX (AWD) at $500 above invoice ($41900 plus $500). I am from Colorado and I might travel up there soon to pick one up. Good luck

All through email. I feel too pressured to be on phone with sales-people.

2014 SH-AWD, tech package, PA dealer gave me a 1600 break off MSRP and paid ~1500 more than the value for my TSX trade-in, guess got a good deal given its newness, waiting for the long drive this weekend!
#12976 of 13267 2014 MDX purchase questions
Jul 26, 2013 (6:52 am)
OK, it's been some years since I've bought (will be leasing) a new car, and I've never bought an Acura before. Mostly Hondas.
So I have a lease quote from the internet sales rep. for a 2014 MDX with Tech. There are several interesting add-ons:
Aftermarkets $499 (not described)
Doc Fee $549
Acquisition Fee $595
Maintenance $299 (they did describe this, I will reject it)
I appreciate that "my mileage will vary" in negotiations, but will I be successful on average telling them to remove all these charges, or are some customary/mandatory for Acura dealers?

I just bought a 2014 AWD Advance from John Eagle in Houston for about $1k below MSRP with no dealer adds which is a pretty good deal. I had shopped around the country and that was the best deal I could find. If you use them, make sure to go through Tiffany in the internet department, she seems to be able to discount more.
As to the previous poster, just tell the dealer you will not accept any adds. It should be Price + TTL. If they won't do, it somebody else will.
