#285 of 375 Re: Which is better 06' acura rsx AT or 06' VW new GTI? [albert8]

dridmang, We are having problems with our 2006 RSX. We purchased in it in Nov. 2005. There is a popping/knocking noise in the right front strut. We have had it into the dealer 5 times for the same noise and they are unable to fix it. We are now trying to use our Lemon Law rights to replace the car. We purchased it in Gerogia. They can't fix the car because is it has a nonconformity that they are not recalling. Also, FYI they have discontinued the manufacturing of both ACURA coupes, RSX & NSX!
#286 of 375 2006 RSX Type S
Jul 23, 2006 (8:11 am)
Hey all, I am going to pick up my RSX Type S tomorrow. I got price quotes from a number of different dealerships around my area online. Once I got that info, i started calling them one-by-one to see if they could beat the best price quote that I got. I did this until dealerships started dropping out of the price war. It ultimately came down to 2 dealerships. Both dealerships gave quotes of $23,047 (Invoice = $22,369, MSRP = $24,460). I thought those prices were pretty decent, so I just went to the dealership that was closest to me. The other dealership then gave me a call about 2 hours before I was to go put down my deposit, and offered the car $22,890 ($521 above invoice). At that point, I gave the other dealership a call to tell them of the new price, and surprisingly, they dropped out. So I am taking the car for $22,890. What do you guys/girls think of the price?
#287 of 375 2006 RSX Type S

I'm thinking about leasing a new 2006 RSX Type S for 36 months & 12,000 miles/year in the Chicagoland area. I've receieved a quote of $284/month with $2,000 total due at signing. The $2,000 includes all taxes & fees - no security deposit or disposition fee. We have leased with this dealer before so maybe that has affected the price a little. How does it sound?

Taxes are pretty high in Illinois on leases... If that includes everything, it sounds like a great deal.. The car has an MSRP of around $25K, right?

Yea...you pay taxes on entire price of the car, not just leased portion. MSRP is $24,490. A final due at signing is $2,500, including first month pmt and other fees. We're taking the $284/month to other dealerships and seeing if they will beat it. We've been getting prices in the $350/month range for normal RSX's (not type S) and Scion tc, so we think this is a pretty good deal for a better car.
#290 of 375 How much should is good? $$$ ?

Im planning on buying a 2006 RSX Auto w/ Leather. I live in orange county, California. What is a good price range that I should be paying for this car?
I've already contacted several dealers and I've heard from $20,740 to $500 under invoice ( which I doubt he'll keep his word)
Should I be thinking of a low price since the RSX is being discontinued and by October 06 RSX's will be a used car that wont sell in their inventory?
#291 of 375 Has the opportunity to buy a RSX-S passed me by

Last week dealers gave quotes as low $22,000, today the quotes are around $24,000 - with the statement that this is the end of RSX-S and the remaining cars are few. The leasing incentive was also removed this week. This was week for me buy, so both changes were like death blows to my intention. My remaining hope is that there with be a swing back before the end.

I bought an RSX Type-S this week. The fact that they are discontinuing the model definitely drove the price up. I was looking at the base model and test drove the last manual transmission left at dealerships in my state. When I returned from the test drive, the car was immediately handed over to the guy who had just bought it! So I ended up with a Type-S. I was quoted MSRP of $24500 from two dealerships in town, ended up agreeing to $23900, but I didn't argue much. It's hard to argue when they point out that this is it, and if I don't pay for it, someone else will. I'm happy with my price.

Bought a red Type S in July. Love the car, but leave it to a car salesman to make it a bad experience. I ended up paying $23,250 plus tax and license.
Westmont (IL) Acura salesman originally told me $23K when I was there. I left and emailed him back that after thinking about it $23K was fine...now add tax, title and license and give me the total. That turned out to be $25,200. I didn't think anything of it. Then I go with the check to p/u the car and I notice the price of the car on the paperwork is $23,400, plus tax, title and license. Salesman is pissed off because he says we agreed on the phone to a total price of $25,200. Yeah, we did, with him misleading me to believe that tax, title and license came to $2,200 instead of about $1,800. I tell him we agreed on 23K plus tax, title and license, and there was no way I was going over $23,250 on the price of the car. At one point he warned me that I wouldn never find another red Type S, because they're really hard to find. I almost walked out anyway I was so pissed.
Anyway, he goes and talks to the boss and comes back with $23,250, which, at the time, is what Edmunds says was the average price in my neighborhood. What this dealership was trying to pull is probably pretty standard stuff. Just make sure that--after you agree on a price for the car--you check their math on all the other stuff. In the end I'm sitting there with a check for $15K and they weren't about to let me walk out the door.
Love the car though. I've heard people say that the stereo is kind of crappy, and I'd go along with that. Hell, the stereo in my '98 Malibou sounded better. Then again, the stero ain't why I bought the car.
#294 of 375 Looking to buy 06 RSX Type S
Sep 19, 2006 (11:44 am)
Now that Acura has stopped making the RSX I'm wondering when the best time to buy an 06 type S would be. There are about 20 of them at dealerships in my area. Does anyone know when Acura dealers really start to clear their lots for next year's models? I know some places really like to start pushing 07 models in October, so late September might be a good time to buy, but I'm not sure if this is the case with Acura. Any thoughts?
