I don't know if the dealers are playing games, I just think we are at the point now where most dealerships don't have a tremendous amount of inventory. So they are willing to give up most of the trunk money but can afford to wait before cutting really deep. To get $34k you need a dealer that is leveraging a volume incentive or willing to dip into the holdback to move the car.
As I mentioned in my previous post, getting $35k was pretty easy for me but to get lower you need a dealership with inventory. If they only have a few models in stock they are still far enough out from the 2010 models that they can wait. If the buyer is flexible in terms of package/colors you can likely wait and get in the $34k range easier over the next 3-5 weeks. But if you are specific on a package and/or color you need to find a dealer with some inventory now.

I got it at Mike Harvey. I was looking for a sport w/ entertainment but there are none left in California or at least not in black/black. As far as I know, my black/black tech w/entertainment is the last one in northern california and is lucky to be actually a short drive away. Called in the morning, firmed up the price for the car at 40,500. Plus all the accessories to 41,500. Not the best deal, but good enough for me. 4 miles on the meter. Can't wait to take it home today...getting the stuff installed as we speak.

Based on my experience this past month on getting quotes on a base model from the in state and surrounding state dealers, that seem to be the lowest asking price at the moment. Let us know if you're able to work out a better deal
#9133 of 13292 Prices for 2009/2010 the same?
Nov 25, 2009 (11:04 am)
I'm just starting to research purchasing a new car and checked out the prices on Edmunds for a 2009 and 2010 Toyota Matrix. They are virtually the same.
How much of a deal can I get at the dealer at this time of year if I get the 2009 model instead of the 2010.
I'm going to need a "how to" before attempting to go to the dealer. I want to be armed with information before I go. I'm in Canada, so I don't known how much of the information on Edmunds will apply.
Any help in pointing me in the right direction to get started will be appreciated. Unfortunately I need the car yesterday as my car is old and acting up. I don't want to put any $$ into it at this point. I don't want the dealer knowing how desperate I am though.
#9134 of 13292 Prices in Atlanta for a MDX/Tech?
Nov 25, 2009 (11:50 am)
I am shopping around Atlanta looking for a good deal on a 2009 MDX with the Tech package. Dealers don't seem to be giving the same great deals that people are getting in Chicago or elsewhere. The best I have seen so far is $41000 including running boards and a roof rack. I've also been quoted for $40,500 without the running boards or roof rack. Has anyone received a better deal?

Just bought a 2009 MDX tech package from Ardmore Acura, $39,400 + tax tag and title, this also includes several accessories, all season mats, cargo tray and bike rack. I have seen some better deals on this site, however I have not been able to duplicate, just wanted to know some other recent sales on the tech package

Actually CarGuy75 looks fake to me. Few days back he posted a price that no one getting in the market. Looks like he is misleading to us.
Nov 25, 2009 (7:58 pm)
I waited too long but after sitting on the deal for a couple of days I am getting 38600 + 810 (dest) + Tax Title Reg --> otd around 42000 - for a 09 Tech package (no extras).
My colleagues say that right now - it should be 41000 ~ 40500 OTD in NJ before accessories.
Is this a good deal? I am about to pull the trigger on Tuesday/Wednesday.

$39,400 for a Tech is a good price. With some more effort you should be able to get $500 off that or maybe $1000 depending on the dealer.
Figure at that price the dealer is making ~$1200 + holdback on that deal, at this time of year and at this point in the 2009 lifetime you should be able to get down to $500 + holdback profit for a vehicle in dealer inventory.
Did you compare to other dealers in your area by e-mail? You can feel safe countering $38,200 and work for $38,500-$39k. But, if your color combo is not widely available you can make the deal at $39,400 and you won't be getting robbed or anything.
