HI sergio, my price is not inclusive of taxes. if yours is inclusive of taxes, then I think it is a good price. my price was $638 with taxes, $0 down, and 36m/10k.
the internet manager at clinton is the one who gave me the price. At lehigh valley acura, I got the same deal plus I got them to throw in black roof rails as well. But what I figured out yesterday was that if you put $0 down, then you end up paying an extra $200 and some dollars extra on taxes, since your monthly lease rate is higher, you end up paying more in taxes. So it is a toss up. Sadly to say, I have some credit issues at the moment, so I was denied by Acura financing for an MDX, which is my loss becuas I have had 2 MDX's since 2007. So I ended up leasing a Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland for $471 per month without taxes with $3500 down(which includes first month's payment). It is not an MDX, but it will do for now and 6 months from now I will get another MDX. Hope this helps.

yes, this is great! thank you so much. If everything works out I'd save around $2K on overall lease terms because of your help.

That is great, all the best!!! My only other advice would be to go to a larger dealership, since they will probably have more in stock, and will deal better with lease rates. but you should start lower than your asking rate and be prepared to walk!! I went to Lehigh Valley, and a new manager there told me to take my business elsewhere. I was so angry because I have never been told that in 20 years of buying/leasing cars. He didn't even want to talk about it. Then 1 hour later he called me back and said he would take the deal. I should have never gone back!! So don't let people treat you like they did to me. In this economy, give me a break. there are other dealerships out there that will be more than happy to give you their business. And I never play games or bs, I just cut to the chase. there are about 3-4 dealers in your area, so let them all compete for your business. The first one that accepts your offer, take it. And make sure they throw in the all weather mats, even for the trunk. Curry Acura in New York always throws them in, and that is very nice of them to do. anyway, good luck. Let us know how it turns out.
#2336 of 2813 New to leases! Is this a good deal?

The dealer is acting like this is a great deal. I want to lease a 2012 Acura mdx with technology and entertainment. The MSRP is 49,309. The price that we have struggled with is now down to 47,651. They are giving me a 10,000 mile/3yr lease 0 down for $671/month (this includes taxes). Is this fair?

I think you can do better than $671 for that package. I think $645-650 is what I am thinking. The MSRP difference between a tech and tech + entertainment is $1900. Remember, MSRP not invoice price. Invoice is $44,466 according to edmonds.com. So, taking that into account and what I have said on previous comments, $645-$650(inclusive of taxes) is as high as I would go, or I would walk.

HA, mitra, a lease payment of $1,030 ...something doesn't seem right there. Are you sure that you weren't on Bentley's website ?
Acura's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 MDX Advance with 15,000 miles per year are .00126 and 51%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.
I believe that Acura leases do indeed include gap insurance at no additional charge.
I don't think that you could move to Canada, but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to visit there in your leased vehicle. I haven't really looked into this issue though so you might want to ask someone at Acura or the dealer to make certain.

Hey wing5nut. Acura's 12,000 mile per year residual values are 2% higher than its 15,000 mile per year resids.

Invoice on a MDX Tech/Ent is NOT $44466...unless you leave out the destination charge of $885. That is part of the price of the vehicle, and should never be removed or shown separately. Add $885...better idea of the number.
