What is this discussion about?
Acura TSX, Sedan
May 09, 2008 (10:23 am)
I've been offered a sales price of $26,500 to buy a 2008 TSX automatic with NAV. Any thoughts on the price?
I may choose to go the leasing route.
Does anyone know what the residual rate would be for 36 and 42 months?
Any current info on money factor rates? I should be able to get the best rate.
Does Acura have a loyalty program? I would be trading in an MDX.

$26,500 sounds pretty good for an '08 NAVI. I got my non-navi for $25,880 a few weeks ago and don't know of anyone getting a cheaper price.

South Florida. I have a connection and I asked what's the best they can do. They told me with the $1,500 rebate 26,500 to 27,000.

That's about right if they're selling the car around invoice minus the 1500 rebate. I'm surprised Acura started the rebate so late (5/1) and it'll last so long (7/7). Acura must be stuck with a lot of 08s. Like all other deals separate the TSX buy from the trade in.

Is the $1500 rebate replacing a different incentive or would you really be able to get a street price $1500 less on 5/1 than on 4/30?
I only see info on the 2009 TSX on the Acura website.
I assume $26500 is including the rebate, so the price would really be $28,000 plus sales tax, then you get the $1500 rebate after that. Sales tax applies to the pre-rebate price.
If the rebate applies to my area and insurance isn't too much, I'll consider it. I hadn't bothered to test drive a TSX earlier because it was more money than I wanted to spend.

As I understand, the rebate is not a cash rebate: it is manufacturer to dealer incentive, which dealers would like to keep, but according to the price of $26500 for the navi model the dealer is pricing the rebate in + $500 off the invoice - not a bad deal.
That means that the base 2008 with no navi should go for under 25K ($1000 incentive is for the base model), since it is selling most places for $25.8 and lower... minus $1000...

So it is a dealer incentive and not a rebate.
That's actually better because that would mean you wouldn't have to pay sales tax on the pre-rebate price of the car because the actual sales transaction price would be lower.
It's also great for the people who would want the nav because the extra $500 would help pay for part of the higher depreciation on nav models.

I agree on that. Looking for 2008 non-navi for mid - $24.000 - will see what happens...
Oh, by the way, I hear that there will be a promotional financing from AHFC 0 - 0.9 across the board. Did anybody else hear about this?

No, where did you hear that?
