I think 35K for 08 tech is little too much
Carsdirect is selling new 2009 for 40K in 92626 zipcode.
I believe you can knock off another 1000 by negotioting directly.
Couple of folks have bought new base (No option)for 35K from tustin and Acura of Mission Vijio....so 38-39K for new Tech with 3.9% APR might be a better way to go...
If you want 2008 then try to get it in 32~33K range

Thank you so much for your input! We feel like we're much more armed to go to battle at the dealerships!
Will let everyone know how it goes. I've got research from this forum and a 2-page Notes and Negotiation Tips on Buying a New Car from a negociation/leadership seminar.

when i was researching in getting a new mdx last sept, 08 techs were selling for about $38k and had 2.9% for 60 mo. now i think you should be able to talk them down a little bit more. i am assuming the price given is a CPO mdx?

You have several options at the end of the lease if you are planning to purchase. I was able to negotiate a one-year extension without any rent payments a couple of years back. All I paid for was depreciation and the Bank agreed to it since they did not want to take the car back. After the year was up, I purchased the car at a much lower residual value.
The price you pay at the end of the lease is fully negotiable. The best time to start the process is when you have about 2 - 3 months left on the lease. Do not inform the Bank / Finance company about how much mileage you have on the car. If you have lower miles than allowed, then the car may be worth more than the residual value. If you have exceeded the miles, it will be worth less but you will have to pay for the miles. As others have said, it also depends a lot on market conditions. If the car is worth more than the residual, the Bank will not negotiate very much. However, if the market is flooded with lease returns and the auction prices are low, you may have some room to negotiate. In any case, make sure you get back the Deposit you have on the lease and wrap up the negotiations before the lease ends.

Being offered 43785 incl dest for 2009 Sport/Ent pkg at one dealership (plus some $499 protection package) with the colors I want vs. another local dealership which is offering one for 43000 even incl dest (but not the color I want).
Are these good deals?

Hi, I'm thinking to purchase certified used 2006 Acura MDX and my budget is 20K. When I do my bargain, how low can I go? 25% from offer price? Has anyone purchased one recently? How much did you pay? Any recommendation for car dealers with good customer service around Chicago area? Thanks!
#8333 of 13292 2009 MDX Base in Boston area
Jun 10, 2009 (10:32 am)
Brag: Purchased late May. (Beat: I suck at negotiating.).
I emailed/called a bunch of dealers in the area and asked if they had any in stock. Got quotes ranging from $36,500 to $38,500. One guy gave a quote of $36,000 on the phone but was 40 miles away. Went to dealer closest to me, who claim they are number 1 in sales and service, and asked for $35,500, based on the numbers from this forum. They only went to $36000 (price includes the destination and the $2000 incentive but not TTL). Rest of the time was spent negotiating my trade-in. Took the deal. Not the best deal by any means but not too bad...I think.
#8334 of 13292 Lease return

AHF will not negotiate the residual value (too high)on my 06 MDX, which is low mileage. One dealer would sell it back at $200.00 less than the stated residual. A second dealer stated I would have to turn it in and wait until they find out from AHF what their price would be to purchase and sell to me. If anyone else tried to purchase a vehicle off lease via an Acura dealer your feedback is appreciated.

The best I saw in this forum is 42500 last month in NJ. I think between 42500 and 43000 are reasonable, acceptable offer, if the color matches your dream. Why you like sport/ent, not tech/ent? I just try to convince myself to spend 1000 more for a some reasons.

I just saw in a website that the current mdx cash rebates are in the range: 1,250-$3,000 and expires 7/6/2009. Can any one confirm? If it is 3K we should be looking at 34K for the base.
