1. In 2009, Acura gave 4 thousands back to all dealers at the end of the year. As a result, many people paid only 34000 + TTL. Please keep in mind that dealer make more money on used car. I suggest to buy from private party if you are considering buying used one.
2. I start to deal with the dealer with O.T.D price. Most dealers give me online quote 45000 O.T.D for MDX base in Southern Cali. But two of them offered me 44000 (close to me) and 43200 ( far way from me) out the door. So I use the lowest O.T.D to buy the car close to where I live. Be firm with the price even if they are telling you that they will give you 1.9 instead of 2.9 or higher. Get the online quote even dealer is far away from you since you just needed the official quote so that you can deal with the dealer which is closer to you. When asking for online price quote, make sure you are showing sincere and serious buyer. Acura selling MDX Base and Tech very well but not Advanced models so it is your advantage to negotiate the lowest one. The dealer I bought my MDX, they gave me online O.T.D quote of 44800 but I got 432000 since I have official quote from another dealer. I hope it hep you guys since I got great tips after reading through all the threads from this forum. One last thing, making sure you have your back up finance since you dont want the dealer used their low A.P.R to negotiate with you.

I have been looking for a good price on a used MDX for about 6 months now. I have noticed in the last month or so the prices of used have finally started to become more realistic. It seems as though there are more of them around as well.
Supply and demand I guess.

I have been tracking *NEW* 2010 MDX price for about 3-4 weeks now since am interested in buying one and here is another price point data for people who are currently tracking/shopping for a new 2010 MDX price...
Yesterday, all of a sudden, I noticed on truecar.com that all of the price points (truecost, factory invoice, Trueaverage, and Sticker price) dropped anywhere from $779 - $1200. Luckily, I found an old truecar print out from the week before and compared it with current week (04/14/10) prices for 2010 MDX Tech and below is the comparison:
This comparison is for a NEW 2010 MDX Tech:
Truecost: Last week ($42,241), This week ($41,055) - difference of ($1186)
Factory invoice: Last Week($43,618), This week ($42,408) - difference of ($1210)
TrueAverage: Last Week($43,735), This week ($42,956) - difference of ($779)
Stricker Price: Last Week($46,715), This week ($45,905) - difference of ($810)
Not sure what exactly to make out of this price drop but I am thinking:
1) Maybe all the initial excitement of 2010 has worned off and prices for 2010 MDX are coming down or are about to real soon...
2) Maybe 2011 are coming out in the next couple of months (again this is a guess, I dont have any concrete info from anyone) and dealers are trying to push some 2010 MDX (es) out so that they can make room for 2011 and in a way still keep the demand high for 2011 model..
Again, I m not sure what's up with MDX prices but I just shared this data for everyone to see...
I also have a question of my own (esp. for old-time acura owners):
Normally, when does Acura come out with their new updated YEAR cars/SUVs... is it mid-year, later in the year etc..?
The reason I am asking this question is to prepare myself to make an informed decision about whether to just wait now for a 2011 MDX model (and pay little more on 2011 vs. 2010) or try to get some kinda deal on 2010 since dealers right now are not willing to give good deals on a 2010... Also, does anyone thinks 2011 MDX is going to be much different than 2010...Since 2010 was fairly updated recently, I am guessing not..
Please share your comments...

That's interesting....we are just starting Q2 so I would expect that prices will stabalize and then go down.
New Acura's typically come out in the Fall (Sept/Oct) timeframe.

I did the same thing you did with negotiating with the dealer for my 08 RL with tech. I send emails to all dealers within 100 miles. Vehicle wentfrom 52k to 42500 and the dealer threw in the little "extras" they do to make more $$$.
My wife is considering a 2010/11 MDX with extras. So around Sept I start the game again and see what pops up. I also got a quote from Consumer's Rpts as to their stuff. And it is important to remember that the dealer has a hold back about 2-4 k with the RL. Don't know with the MDX.
Good luck to all and stay safe.

The True Car prices have been too high for a while now. It appeared they were adding in the destinination twice.
Now they may be subtracting it twice. When I add $810 to their sticker price, I got the actual sticker.
That makes it tough when they aren't accurate.

Good observations but this is what I saw 3 weeks ago. All of a sudden the prices then went up $810 and someone pointed out that that was the delivery/shipping amount and we believed then that some one added the original $810 twice..now you say that this week the difference is $810 less..uhmmm...could it be that 3 weeks ago truecar.com DID make a mistake by adding twice the delivery charges and now are fixing the number to the proper numbers?...
