Acura TSX, Sedan
#2214 of 5064 2004 Acura TSX MT-6
Jan 18, 2006 (5:11 pm)
I live in Boston and Im a recent college graduate looking to purchase a new car. Its been a toss up between an 03-04 Accord Coupe EX or a 2004 Acura TSX. I really want the TSX but Im not sure if I can afford it. When i do an auto searche on 2004 Acura TSX I get a range of prices. Do think i could get a 2004 TSX for $18,000 -$19500. Or am I wishful thinking. Thanks
#2216 of 5064 23,400/ 2004 6 MT price

I bet this is 28,400 even 27,400 too low at this point.
Now 28,400 would be a good deal.
2004 6MT for $19500 easy. Step one (NO dealers)
Step two look at autotrader and ebay. I found mine 04 TSX mint, 17k miles, spoiler, trunk tray, tink, wheel locks and I paid $20,500, higher miles will be less. Over xmas saw some go for $19k with 40k miles.
Be advised 3 year leases come due march 06 and end value of $17,000 means a bunch of 04 TSX on market and prices will come down.

how much Acura dealers usually or are willing to take off sticker price on an '06 6spd with Navigation? (~$30K)
The only accessory I'd get is wheel locks and maybe a spoiler.
This is for an East Coast dealer if that makes any difference.

It depends on your negotiating skills but invoice+500 is a good deal. Wheel locks should be free, spoiler maybe invoice+100.
#2220 of 5064 Great Price on a 06' TSX

Just wanted to post a message to let everyone know that a good deal can be had if you are persistent and patient. Just bought a 06'TSX Navi for 30,500 Drive-out. Granted it is a 45 min drive from Houston. It's well worth it. Good luck and remember P & P Baby!

I'll second that. I initially contacted a dealer in San Jose, CA about a glacier blue/black non-navigation 06 TSX in December. They told me the best they could do was $500 off MSRP, and they wouldn't budge. I told them that if they really wanted to sell me a car, they would have to come down to a more reasonable price. They called me back several times over the next month, on each occasion with a lower price. On Wednesday night they called me to let me know the exact car I wanted had just come off the truck, and if I was still interested, I could have it for $500 over invoice.
I picked the car up yesterday. I haven't had much of a chance to take it out on the open road, but I love it so far.
Be patient, and persistent. It will pay off! Good luck to all buyers out there.

I got the following quote from a dealer in the DC area, which seems to be about $500 over invoicPe, but he said he could knock off another $200. Also, I might be able to get the processing fee waived. Is this a good deal or can I get a better price? Is the invoice the true cost the dealership pays for the vehicle or are there hidden ways they are making money? Please help me save more money.
MSRP: $28,505.00(includes $615.00 destination)
Your Price: $26,559.00(includes $615.00 destination)
$1,290.00(17" High Performance Sparkle Silver Wheels)
$857.28(Va. 3% sales tax)
$85.00(new Va. tags)
#2223 of 5064 Gjustus, sounds like a good deal based on Edmunds

We are also in the DC area looking for a TSX (auto with Nav). Which dealership gave you $500 over invoice.
The dealer also gets a "dealer hold-back"... it's usually about 3% of the inovice or MSRP (depending on the manufacturer). But it's rare that the dealership will permit this to influence the negotiations.
