I don't know if the prices you've been offered are fair or not - I am looking at getting a 2007 Acura TSX w/nav so haven't tried to get a price on a non navi. I did own a 2004 G35 and also really liked the way it drove, but it had a few drawbacks, one of which was that the foot rest for left foot was too far forward to work for me. More important though was that the brakes wore out very quickly. Mine started squeaking after 5,000 miles and the rear brakes had to be replaced at 7,000 miles. Lots of people had reported brake wear issues on the G35 forum, but I didn't pay attention to them because I liked the driving experience so much. Eventually, Infiniti sent a letter to all G35 owners that indicated that we would be given free brake replacements for 3 years or 36,000 miles. I got rid of the car at that point (also, the transmission was making a clunking noise sometimes when I was on the highway going about 45-50 mph). I didn't want to have to replace brakes every 7,000 - 10,000 miles after the 36,000 or 3 yr. period ended. I never had to replace brakes on any of my previous vehicles until at least 50,000 miles. Maybe Infiniti has solved the brake issue by now since that was 3 years ago that I had my car.
So far I haven't seen anything negative on the Acura TSX forum so I feel good about choosing the Acura. Good luck with whatever car you decided to buy.

Thanks for your input. G35 was very nice and drive was almost euphoric, but the lower cost of ownership on TSX won over G35 at the end. Everything from brake changes to oil changes were higher with G35 than TSX. I bought the 2007 TSX non-navi auto in Glacier Blue with Ebony leather interior. OTD price was $26,000 (purchase price $26,995, plus tax & fees, and then $3,000 down with no trade-in). This wasn't the lowest price, but this was the only glacier blue within 75 miles. Lowest price offered from another dealer was $26,695 plus tax on a Carbon Gray, but I guess $300 was worth the trouble for the color alone. So far loving the car, color is simply beautiful and bluetooth is so cool. TSX may not be the track star that G35 is, but sure feels surefooted and like a sharp razor around the corners. Not bad fopr a FWD car.

Anyone out there shopping for the TSX in the Puget Sound area? I've got an offer for $27,552 + tax and fees and trying to figure out if I can do better. It seems high to me, but I hear the competition is tough up here.
Perhaps I should buy elsewhere and then drive it back here? Say California or Oregon?
Thanks for the help!

Hi, anybody recently purchased a 2007 TSX in washington DC area? I am thinking about buying one without Navi, I send out the purchase request for three dealers, but did not get much price quote.

Does anyone have any insight on the current advertised lease for the 07 TSX? I've never leased before and am wondering if it's a good deal? I don't drive much, so I was wondering if this is a good option for me.

That's the exact same price i got from mission viejo acura. Tustin acura said they would beat it but don't have the "royal/parchment" color combo I want.
26895 w/o nav

I guess they extended the support - it was supposed to end at the end of 06. But that is only on the 06 models.

I called and support is on 06 models only. All they have on 07 are lease options.
