I bought my 05 and traded my 05 for an 08 - all at Lindsay Acura in Columbus Ohio. Call and ask for Brook. I got an 08 with the tech pkg and paid 36250 for the new one and they gave me 15000 for the 05 touring with 54k miles. On the new one, I did have them put on the sport side steps and the all weather mats and cargo tray. I paid a little under $900 if I remember correctly for the accessories installed. The only bad part is that they charge a $275ish fee for the documents. I'm in Bloomington and I did the deal over the phone and met him in Richmond.
One of the most painless transactions that I've had.

The price for the Tech package seems to be in line with other quotes that have been posted on this thread. Are the quotes OTD or do you still have TTL to pay?
Also, how does the standard sound system compare to the upgraded one? I'm weighing my options and the base model may be the way I go. Would rather get the Tech package but don't know if it's worth a $4K upgrade. Don't really need Nav system.

Not sure how the upgraded sound system compares to the standard but I didn't think it was all that until I loaded up the DVD audio that came with it and just blew me away with the clarity and the sound imaging of the 5.1 surround material. XM and FM sound fine and my MP3's sound very good as well. All in all, the system has much better sound than any vehicle I've driven, factory or aftermarket. The NAV comes in handy but I really can't do without the backup camera and it actually saved me last week (2nd week of owning it) when I had to back up on the street and didn't see an Integra behind me. When I looked up in the mirror (like I normally do in my previous sedans/coupes) I didn't see anything and on whim, I just looked at the backup camera and there was a car! There's also been talk on these forums about how some have found the stock tires on the base model to be somewhat poorer (vs the ones on the TECH) as well so you may want to factor that in. Wow, sounds like I'm really pushing the TECH huh? I'm not but check around on this forum and also acuramdx.org. You can read up a ton on people's experiences with both and extrapolate the information you need. I didn't think I was going to miss the powertailgate until the last 2 grocery runs (I had an 09 TECH loaner for a week while my 08 was in the shop) but was it worth the extra $? Probably not.

Emailed an Internet offer on an '09 MDX with Tech pkg for $38,400.00. They accepted the offer. Is this a good price?

It's from Acura of Boston. I live in Florida but I wanted to see if they would give the same deal or better that someone posted about earlier this month. They did so I contacted my local dealer to see if they'll match it. I'm asking for '09 MDX Tech w/ body side molding & destination fee included for $38,400. I'll report back if they match the deal.

Make sure u get it in writing or print out email before u go in. I made the mistake of going to a dealer with a verbal agreement and they would honor the price they quoted over the phone.

I just got a quote on a 39 month lease, 10k miles per year, $1,990 down 51% residual and a money factor of 0.0032. MSRP=$47350 and he told me he would price the car at $41,400. This all equates out to $650 per month. I am in Dallas, Texas.
Does anyone know if this is a good deal or not?
Thanks for your help!
