#9802 of 13277 Did Acura build enough 2010 MDX-Advance?
Apr 24, 2010 (8:17 am)
This is ridiculous how difficult it is to locate and buy a 2010 MDX-Advance Package. Some dealers in So. California get one or two at the most. Other dealers don't have any and don't expect any. Why did Acura ever bother producing a car that is impossible to buy? I found the one I wanted but the dealer refused to budge on $$ and was way over true car pricing. Guess I should have let him rip me off and I would have a new car. --- Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm still driving my 2001 mdx with 136,000 miles. Maybe I should just keep it.

I am having the same issue. They are not producing enough. I live in Houston and there is only 1 advance within a 100 miles. You can almost forget about trying to negotiate a decent price. I have had 2 dealers tell me they would take $50k plus ttl, (when they had their 1 advance on the lot) but it's not even the color I want. I am just waiting until either more come in or the 2011's come out and see what's out there. I have to say that I am not rushing to buy at that price, especially since it doesn't have a push start or keyless entry. I've been wanting to buy since April '09 and was waiting for keyless. I will continue to drive my '99 Suburban with 110k miles, until the keyless option is there or the price of the advance hits around 48K. As you can see I don't buy a car very often, and I want certain options because it will be a while before I buy again. Good luck.
#9804 of 13277 2010 MDX ADVANCE PRICE NORTHERN VA/DC
Apr 24, 2010 (4:30 pm)
Just got an mdx advance for 48000 + ttl. Pohanka Acura in Chantilly, VA. Pohanka and nearby Radley Acura are going toe to toe on pricing. First internet offer I got from Pohanka was 51000. After I sent Pohanka proof of an offer from Radley of 200 under invoice, Pohanka accepted my offer of 614 under invoice, 48000. The color I wanted will be delivered to my home in 7 days, fresh off the truck. Ask for Omar, and nail them down by email on price before you go in. You should get well under invoice for all mdx models. and hold out for the color you want. Good luck! PS - the way the mdx handles totally sold me at any price.

41.5K for MDX with Tech pkg?! Isn't that about 1400 less than the invoice? Is there any special pricing/deal going on now/this week?
#9806 of 13277 I'll pass on the keyless entry
Apr 24, 2010 (6:40 pm)
after some research on poor security in for keyless entry, I'll pass. Part of me is thankful the 2010 MDX doesn't have it yet. Just waiting for the price on these MDX to drop a little bit more before jumping. I wonder what May will bring.
I found it intresting Honda actually only offers it on only one model. I dont know if its a security concern for them or what....

Who did you work with over there? Seems like you got a great deal. Do they still charge $400 processing fees?

I have been shopping/tracking 2010 MDX in AZ area for last 3-4 weeks and I 'd like to echo some of the same comments (or even worse experience than) I just read here:
1) Less inventory (I am willing to bet on purpose, artificial demand???), hence, dealers (three in my area) can ask for higher than national average price (so I am finding out when I compare their prices from other out of state dealerships). They dont budge from their asking price either (they let me walk out). This is true even though I am looking for a Tech model and not Advanced. Overall, there are more techs than advanced but then there are more ppl looking for them too. As a matter of fact, I think, Advanced buyers probably have an edge over Tech buyers in negotiations and price..
2) Even if I were to bring them down to true car avg price (mid 43s + TTL, no accessories) I am having to wait 4-5 weeks to get the color combination that I 'd like because, apparently, there is none coming in w/ that color combo for so long.. and other dealers are not willing to swap, if they have one at all... really????
3) Dealers are hardly negotiating (if at all) at least in AZ area. In fact, one of the dealers actually raised their email/phone agreed upon price when it came to actually inking the deal and wanted me to wait for 4 weeks to get my color (which at the time of email negotiations I was told was coming in 'anyday now'). Needless to say someone else got my business...

Good for you. I'm with you on the Az. Dealers trying to gouge the people out here. I wish it would be easier for all of us to come together and buy out of state. Maybe then they'd be more willing to match national pricing. I do by best to buy in California where you have a fighting chance at least .

Just purchased for $44,986 + TTL here in Houston, TX. It's polished metal metallic with taupe, and has the window tint and wheel locks. I also got a decent trade-in for my '05 TL, so I'm happy with the deal based on what I've been seeing. Love the car!
