#3710 of 5064 Top Notch Team at Crown Acura in Richmond, VA
May 18, 2008 (8:12 am)
Top Notch team at Crown Acura in Richmond. I got a good deal and Crown Acura doesn't make you sacrifice on customer service like others do. Here's how my experience was...
I have been considering an Acura purchase for approximately three years now. On April 18, 2008, I finally decided to do just that. I have nothing but nice things to say about my salesperson (can't name him here per edmunds agreement initials A.P.). He was an excellent salesman and really made sure that I was comfortable. He gave me the deal that I wanted and I walked away with a brand new 2008 TSX. I researched edmunds true market value which provides dealer's invoice and what others are paying. It is a purchase that I am very proud of. Management team was wonderful too. At the time of the purchase, I decided to add a few accessories, such as splash guards, moonroof visor, and a spoiler. We scheduled a service appointment and A.P. took care of all that for me. A very important matter came up for the Saturday appointment and I called the service department to reschedule and it was not a problem at all. They took care of the rescheduling and the gentleman with whom I spoke was very courteous. One of the best things about the service department is not only the courteousness, but the hours as well. I am an auditor, so I travel quite a bit. Some days I work grueling hours, so the fact that they open at 6:30 really helps out as well. It is easy for me to drop off my car and go on to the office with ease. When I arrived the morning of my service visit, the doors were open at exactly 6:30. One of the employees in that department came out greeted me, ask me my name, and knew instantly what I had brought my car in for. He gave me a courtesy loaner car to drive and sent me on my way in less than 20 minutes. Overall, my experience has been most excellent with Crown Acura. It has been such a good experience, I have shared it with other friends and colleagues that are in the market for a new vehicle. If my continued service and sales experience is this stellar, then Crown Acura will have my business for a very long time.
I would never consider battling the traffic by driving to Northern Virginia to buy an Acura after buying from Crown in Richmond. I live in Richmond and got a good deal and Top Notch Service as well!!! For the first time I can say I am proud of my car purchase.
#3711 of 5064 New owner of 2008 TSX Base (no nav) for 27,714.93 OTD

I walked into Sierra Acura in Alhambra, CA this morning and was kindly assisted by their Internet Sales Department. The 2008 TSX base models are extremely scarce. I emailed over eight Acura dealerships in the LA/OC/IE area and some had at most two left, while others had none. This dealership had a Silver and Artic Blue Pearl color available, but none of the Carbon Gray Pearl color I had wanted. I was told the Carbon Gray Pearl color was sold out over a month ago and that it would be extremely rare to find that model/color at any dealership. I ended up purchasing the Silver. While I was completing my sale paperwork, multiple buyers inquired about the car that was just to me. I think I received a good deal and wanted to share it with all those who have contributed to this informative forum.
Vehicle Cost: 25,329
Doc Fee: 55
Sales Tax (LA County 8.25%): 2,094.18
*TOTAL OTD: 27,714.93
Down payment 15,000

Hope this helps someone. Good luck to those who are still researching a purchase.

Got an 08 las week with Nav and pro package in a dealer swap. Paid 28,400 OTD(6.75% tax + 250 doc fee0 with a beater trader in. Didn't have a very pleasant experience and wish I had a choice of better dealer. Just wanting to see if this was decent deal, didn't shop around much since there are not a whole lot of them available. Just wondering if I did ok on the pricing...

I tried to email all of the nearby dealers for the internet quote but every one asked me to call them and didn't want to quote via email. Did you bring in any quote to them? I am living near Alhambra and would like to check it out there. Thanks.

just let them know you wont come in until price is negotiated, that usually works. I also am in LA where there are liek 3 or 4 dealers in a 15 mile drive.

Checked out a place in the GTA called Performance Cars and gave me a better quote for a new TSX than any of the other dealers I was looking at.

I test drove one last night and I gotta say I loved it.
Sticker price was 29,675
I checked the TMV on this site and it's somewhere around 29,400. Is that really the best deal people are getting? The invoice is around 27,300
What can I expect to get this car for?
