The dealer buys the car from Acura for the invoice price ($40,092 base, $43,455 Technology), less a holdback (2 percent of MSRP) and less any incentives (currently $1500). You're not going to buy a new MDX for the prices you mention, which represent a ~$2K loss for the dealer.

thanks, I got quote 40700 for tech, it seems quite feasible price, another dealer quote 40840, I even didn't start to use their price to beat each other.

seems their quote is very "honest"?

The quotes you got are very good. The $38,900 mentioned in the other thread was for a '12, while you're shopping a '13.

Don't forget to post pictures when you get it.

Invoice and MSRP for the 2012 and 2013 are similar - a couple hundred higher for the 2013. But Acura is currently providing a dealer incentive of $3000 on the 2012, vs $1500 on the 2013. So you can expect to pay around $1700 more for a new 2013 than for a new 2012.

A really good deal is usually $300-1000 over the actual dealer cost.

Dealer cost on a 2013 MDX base is currently invoice ($40,092) minus holdback ($866) minus incentives ($2,500), or $36,726. So yes, $36,997 sounds like an excellent deal.

Dealer cost on a 2013 MDX Technology is currently invoice ($43,455) minus holdback ($940) minus incentives ($2,500), or $40,115. So by shopping around and negotiating you should be able to get one for $40,500-41,000.

Whether it's worth paying $3,400 or so more for the Technology package, which includes nav, parking camera, and a much better audio system, is up to you.

(I know I posted above that incentives on the 2013 MDX were $1,500 but they raised them and they're now $2500.)

I would get the tech package if you can swing it. You won't be disappointed that you spent the extra money.

I'm in Camarillo and just might might want this deal. I've been looking at used 2011s, but @42k the cost difference isn't as great. What's the salesman's name? Standard deal, or did you have to work for it?

Did you read what I posted above? If you shop around and/or negotiate well, you should be able to get a new 2013 Tech for $40,500-41,000. No need to spend $42K. That assumes you buy between now and January 2; after that, the incentives could change, affecting the price you pay.

I bet it will look just like the other MDX's.
