Hi,

I am being quoted $895 for a acura care package for the 30,000 miles. I am leasing the 2018 MDX for 10,000miles/year for 3 years and do plan to buy it when the 36 months are over.

Would you recommend that I get the acura care package or not?

No, I wouldn't buy AcuraCare.

Over the course of 3 years and 30k miles, I'd expect:

7,500 miles
$69.95 - B Oil Change
$29.95 - 1 Tire Rotation
======
$99.90

15,000 miles
$69.95 - B Oil Change
$29.95 - 1 Tire Rotation
$149.95 - 6 Rear Differential Fluid
======
$249.85

22,500 miles
$69.95 - B Oil Change
$29.95 - 1 Tire Rotation
$159.95 - 2 Engine and Cabin air filters (Highway robbery, at a dealer)
======
$259.85

30,000 miles
$69.95 - B Oil Change
$29.95 - 1 Tire Rotation
$149.95 - Brake Fluid Flush
======
$249.85

Total over 3 years and 30k miles, using HIGH dealer pricing for all services: $859.45. So even trying as hard as I could, I still couldn't make AcuraCare a "good" deal.

Why are you leasing if you plan on buying it? Seems counter-productive unless there was some massive lease incentive that wasn't available on a purchase.
