Their lease residual should be able to be figured out by going to the "Lease" forum for the MDX and go back to the date (approx) that they bought their '07 and see what the 36 month residual was at that time. The residual % is applied against MSRP in case you just have a percentage and not the actual amount. But in skimming a bunch of posts you should be able to find the actual 36 month residuals for the model you want. Here is a spot you might start reading...

No, the prices listed are the prices they quoted me for the accessories installed.

No wheel locks are not included by default. I asked for those accessories and those are the prices I would have to pay to get them.

You got a very nice deal. Could you share the dealer information? Thanks!

I think most of the 2007's residual values were in the $28,000 range. I wouldn't feel real comfortable with this deal if the person wasn't willing to tell me what they want for the MDX. In most cases I have not found it worth the money to purchase a car at lease end unless the person who leased the car agrees to sell it at the residual value. You will also have to go through the dealer to purchase the car if it is leased through Honda because they won't let you buy it from the person who leased the MDX. They will have to purchase the car and pay sales tax and then sell it to you and you may also have to pay sales tax. This is a deal killer. Honda has some very good leases but they aren't set up for the person leasing to sell at lease end.

"Double sales tax" is not usually a problem if you buy someone's car when they exercise the residual. At least not in California....not sure about other states, but Calif is usually not a low-tax haven on things like this.

Thanks for the quick reply. I am in North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham area). I will most probably confirm with the dealer on the destination charge. One other thing is I am getting a quote of 44,000 for 2010 mdx with tech package -- not including destination, doc and license fees. How much negotiating room do I have ?

I don't know your local market, but I just bought 2010 Tech for $43,500 + TTL and got a couple of small freebies thrown in. So with destination, you are about $1300 higher than me. So it would seem you have some room to work with.

Jan 26, 2010 (3:18 pm)
I am planning to lease an Acura MDX with tech package in Boston area. Does anybody know it it is a good idea to lease or it's better to buy it at this moment.
I appreciate for any input or suggestion.
