#9438 of 13274 Purchased 2010 Acura MDX Advanced with Entertainment in OR
Jan 29, 2010 (11:49 am)
Here's a price point that may or may not help you folks in the PNW (Oregon & WA) areas. Not sure if this particular trim is in short supply or if the NW is much more inflated than other areas of the country, but I shopped around OR and WA for several weeks and this was the best I could do for the color and trim that I was looking for. The car was only available for a few weeks, so if you wait, i'm sure you can do much closer to invoice than I did.
2010 Acura MDX Advanced with Entertainment, Black exterior, black interior
MSRP (incl base + dest): $54,565
Price paid was 2k less than MSRP: $52,565
Genuine Acura Installed Accessories with 4yr/50k warranty: $3,691
Wheel Lock Set, All Season Mats, Tri-fold Cargo Tray
Roof Rails & Cross Bars Silver
Complete Tow Package including 2" ball
Advanced Running Board
Door Edge Film
Body Side Molding
Only extras were Tax, Title, & License. I had an excellent buying experience at Ron Tonkin Acura in Portland, OR. I rated the dealership 5 out of 5 stars for this transaction because they were honest, easy to work with, very detailed, respected my time, and provided an overall efficient and good experience. The quotes I recieved in the Seattle area were about $1500 - 1700 more than quotes coming in from OR. I have up to 6k miles to purchase the extended warranty, so i'll wait a few more months.
So far the car is performing well and haven't had any issues. The sound system blows away any other factory system I've had in the past. Not a big fan of the light brown wood around the dash (prefer the dark grey stuff they had in the 2009s). Voice recognition worked very well the few times i used it. Navigation is also fairly intuitive. The dashboard doesn't feel too busy as several reviewers have mentioned.

hi, jingl, first, the invoice price of the mdx tech is $42,919 (honda increased the invoice price in jan.) and that includes $810 dest.ination fee. los gatos acura was the dealer who told me that mdx's are going for invoice right now, so try them. also try my dealer: stevens creek autowest acura. bear in mind that my deal at stevens creek was $1700 over invoice. this included 4years of prepaid maintenance on the car ( A and B services). the value of that is $1200. not sure if you could use that at your local AZ dealer, you'll have to ask. and i got about $300 of accessories thrown in as well. so call los gatos acura and stevens creek autowest acura. let me know what you find out!

Hi -- no reason other than reading these boards and others. My understanding is that bridgewater acura is willing to sell at $700 over invoice... I'm not sure about either open road or DCH in montclair, but that's what I've read in several places about bridgewater -- also the princeton acura was mentioned as offering good prices. I'd rather pay 42/43k for a brand new car than 36 or 37 for a 2 or 3 year old car. That's just my opinion.

hi, igiban, the $1700+invoice with maintenance included came about after several hours (!) of negotiations. can't even remember what their first quote was....but it was significantly higher...
#9443 of 13274 New 2009 MDX w/ Tech
Jan 29, 2010 (4:16 pm)
A local dealer still has a brand new 2009 MDX w/ Tech package. He said they are very motivated to sell the 2009 yada, yada, yada, and wanted me to make an offer. I hate salesman that won't just give me a bottom line price, but what would be a great price on a new 2009 MDX w/ Tech currently?
The one this dealer has just happens to be the color combo I want.

#9445 of 13274 2010 MDX Tech/Ent (+Extras) Pricing in Chicago
Jan 30, 2010 (6:48 am)
First off, thanks to all that posted before me. It helped me gear up for my purchase and I am quite happy with the result. As a return favor, here is where I ended up.
2010 Acura MDX Tech & Ent. I could have cared less, but in stock the color the boss (wife) wanted also had roof rails and x-bars as well as the "Advance" side step. [Control your excitement...] I also had them throw in the cargo try given the slush and snow run off from kids strollers.
Anyway, in the Chicagoland dealer, we settled at $44,900 + TTL. Hope this helps all of you...
Best of Luck
