Hey there. I'm in the market for an MDX (Touring and Navi) and was wondering what you guys paid for your MDX's.

I'm in the Maryland area and am test driving an MDX within the next few days! Have any of you gotten really hot deals on the this model?

Thanks!

Deals can be had on 2001's if you can find them in your area. Here in So Cal I got an email for a no haggle price on 2001's for 500 below MSRP with no forced options. Even 2002's are going for straight MSRP with no forced options. So I guess I would buy the 2002 for 500 extra. Good luck.

MDX price

For 2001 model, if they are configuration with color you need, you should be able to get them for under MSRP price. For 2002, some dealers are still asking customer to buy more than $1K worth of option at price higher than acura web site price. But I see most of the dealers in Bay Area are willing to let go forced option or just offer options at price posted on acura web site. But some wait is common. It seems that there are less deman in LA. Hence the wait in LA area may be shorter than one month. I expect that, after the Xmas, getting MDX will be even easier.

I bought my 2001 in November of 2000 for MSRP with no forced accessories. The accessories I did want were at the MSRP price on Acura's web site, minus 10 percent.

MSRP, no options

I got my '02 Tour/Nav at Prestige Acura in Santa Rosa. It came with no options. I got it for straight MSRP + destination charges -- $39,780.

With sales and luxury tax and DMV fees, the grand total was $43,105

MSRP, no options

All optional equipment from TIM, except for Manik Front Bar and Tail Light Guards; he's the best.

Paid $39,700 ($250 over MSRP) for Tour/Navi will all dealer installed options below except the body side mouldings, which I bought from Tim for $98 & installed myself.
If I had ordered the options, the Cost of Options before installation from Tim was $773 - Dealer priced them installed at $1685.

I had no trade-in.

So the way I look at it - I paid $250 to have $773 of free accessories installed. Dealer tried to convince me they gave me a $1435 discount. Either way - it was a nice deal.

Something to remember when doing any deal - the dealer may give up profit on the front end, but make it up on the back end thru financing or lowballing your trade.

So asking what kind a "deal" someone got depends on many factors. It amazes me when I hear (not on this board) about buying cars for $100 over invoice. If a dealer only made $100 on every car they sold - they would quickly be out of business, unless they could sell a ton of cars all the time.

Paid $500 under MSRP without any forced accessories. Furthermore, dealer did a "pass-thru" with my "old car" for $100 (I sold old car to a private party via the dealer so I pay sales tax on the "net")

Folks, this is encouraging. It seems that you either paid below MSRP or got a good deal on the accessories. Can I conclude that we should be able to buy 2002 model for the price that is below the quoted standard price from Acura website? :)

tjwid,

I wouldn't assume that - it really depends on the market you live in. I would certainly say you can safely assume MSRP for sure in most markets, and in some you may get some free accessories. Good Luck!

I won't be so sure yet. With our local wait time at 2 to 3 months, demand exceeds supply at this time. There is no cars waiting for you to pick at your friend or unfriendly Acura dealers. Based on salesman's calling back from other brands such as Lexus and based on friends who bought cars recently, it seems that a deal can be made best at month end for dealer to meet quota or for a less appealing color vehicle to go out of their lot.

My inquiries to out-of-state dealership resulted in finding availability of 2001 MDX sometimes. Almost always the available MDX was a black MDX with ebony inside. Even that, the dealer asked for the "special pricing of MSRP". :mad: So.. I fell I was wasting my time.

On the other hand, the whole situation really makes people who took delivery or having a soon-to-delivered MDX feel special. :)

I had experience reaching Texas, Georgia, Missouri dealers. Frankly, I have not found any salesman interested in dealing with long distance buyers. And the online services to get quote is basically useless.

An Atlanta dealer gave me an "Internet Special Pricing" -- MSRP, since they charge more $$ regularly. Anyway, time will solve this problem and competition will catch up I am sure. For the moment, it seems the MDX is winning over the competition adn not bother by the recession talk.
