.You can do better than this on Advanced. If you lease, there’s sometimes lease cash. So you basically lease first and then buy. I paid $45500 for ‘19 AWD Advanced as a reference point back in June of 2019.
Over 10K is good (in my opinion). Could you get better deal? Possible, this all depends on car milage, dealer inventory, etc. But if MDX has right combination (ext / int color, acceptable milage, good test drive experience, etc), you might negotiate with dealer to throw in some accessories.Found a dealer that will get me a 20 Advance AWD for $10.6k off MSRP. Think I can do better?
Acura has lease cash deals quite frequently, especially on last year’s models. I leased for 3 years, but plan to keep it due to low cost. Leasing made sense as they were running $9k off lease cash promo, not applicable on purchase. In November of 2019, we pulled a similar deal for my parents TLX w/tech. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the specifics or PM me.So you leased for 1 year, then purchased, and your total cost was $45.5k? That sounds like a great deal. I had planned on buying instead of leasing. Found a dealer that will get me a 20 Advance AWD for $10.6k off MSRP. Think I can do better?
Check out Edmonds townhall forums for lease-specific info, and you’ll be saying I overpaid lol. I used their help to estimate the right deal based on the available incentives in WA state. I pulled a similar deal on my parents TLX which they plan to buy out also. Lease cash is a powerful thing when it’s available..
I find that very hard to believe that you got $14k or so off. But if you say so. Especially leasing first.
I’m waiting for the 2021. Going from a 17 to a 20 makes no sense to me. With the exception of CarPlay,they are identical. I like redesigns. I guess that’s why I’ve had so many cars. Don’t plan on any incentives from the start.Good discounts, good times. However, has anybody thought about holding off until the 2021s are available in a few months? Isn't that model supposed to be a redesign? Since the MDX supplies a humongous slice of Acura revenue, I'm assuming there would be Honda/Acura incentives from the get-go.
OK - so I've gotta ask - who gave you the "gift card" - Acura? The dealer? My '17 had a bad Navi that I battled with Acura on for a couple of months (with video/photo evidence), and in the end the DEALER stepped up and essentially paid off the residual on the '17 (about $3k under book at 2/3 of the way thru the lease) and gave me a $12K discount off the '19 Advance (the value the lease started at) to get me out of my '17. In the end, like you, I'm happy and my nav (knock on wood) works consistently..... With an additional gift card from Acura for a bad Navi on my old 17 Tech,
..... Shifts are super smooth and the Navi works!
Did you keep your 2017? If not than surely the trade in came into play.Gift card was supplied by Acura Client Relations (American Honda Motor Co.) They work closely with the dealers. In your case it appears the dealer took care of you, in mine, Acura. But I’m sure Acura played a part in your lease settlement.
I love the ride and looks of the 20 Advance. I’m not sure of the looks from the spy photos I saw of the 21. Looks a bit boxy and like a larger RDX. And I don’t care for the dash layout of the RDX. I’m hoping the 21 MDX turns out to be a great vehicle. If it is, I might get one, but I wasn’t passing up on the sweet deal I just got. Doubt the discounts on the 21 end up more than a few grand at first, if that.
All that matters is if you are happy with the deal and vehicle you got. So far, I am.
