#3818 of 5064 Re: new 2009 TSX vs barely used 2007 TL Type-S [biker4]

Thanks to both of you for your valuable feedback. The TL was the best price that I could find at the time. The requirement for a manual transmission has been the difficult part. As best as I can tell, no Acura dealers nationwide have a new TL Type S 6MT left on the lot. So it is down to used ones, and there aren't many of them around, either, right now.
But I did just find another used 2007 TL Type-S 6MT with low miles today for under $28K. It'll require a long drive to get it two states away, if I do, though.
Still no movement from my local dealer on the price of a 2009 TSX. $1000 under MSRP + a decent trade-in price for my old car. I ruled out the TSX's Tech package -- not very important features for the $3100 pricetag.

As with the other things mentioned, a trade is not a good way to get a bargain. This is yet another variable the dealer will use to make money. Sell your car privately - assuming it's an MT car the dealer will be even more reluctant to give you a good deal on the trade. It may take a while but there are people out there looking to buy an MT car. I sold my Accord LX 5 MT within hours on Craigslist.
On the TSX - as I mentioned you either wait till the end of the month or widen your search area to get a better price.

My hubby and I got the 09 TSX + Technology pkg + destination fee + tinted window at $29,950. Yet, we added the paint protection program($950) so it becomes $30,900.
I think the paint protection program is probably overpriced..but i guess it's still a good deal.

Stacyk, could you share who the dealer was that sold at that price?
The TL Type-S that I mentioned above for under $28K was purchased by someone else today before I talked to the dealer.

A large local newspaper would like to speak with consumers who currently owns or owned an Acura. The reporter wants to discuss why you stayed with Acura or decided on another luxury brand as your next vehicle. If you are interested in speaking to the reporter, please respond to ctalatiedmunds.com with your daytime contact information no later than September 15.
#3823 of 5064 2009 TSX $26,899 near Chicago
Sep 09, 2008 (5:39 am)
I got the following online quote back by email from Arlington Acura in Palatine (near Chicago) for a 2009 TSX (w/out tech package).
"The MSRP of this vehicle is $29,113
"Your Special Sale Price is $26,899. We have a huge selection of vehicles in inventory. This model is available in all colors! We have other trim levels that you may be interested in as well."
I'm not sure why the MSRP is a little lower than what is on acura.com. Even if they left off the destination fee, that would not exactly explain the difference.

If they left off the destination fee on the MSRP, then they probably left it off their quote, as well..
It would be interesting to see what the final quote would come to..
#3825 of 5064 New TSX 09 with technology package, in Champion Acura Houston
Sep 10, 2008 (7:57 am)
My friend finally closed his deal last weekend and took the car home.
It is a TSX 09 with technology package and no other extras.
He bought it from Champion Acura in Houston, for 32799$ including TTL. I will check how much was without TTL to post it here, but should be something like $31.000.
It was really easy dealing with Champion and they didn't pull any trick at the end as other dealers did, specially McDavid Austin that played a bait and switch, and really got me and my friend upset. We are foreigners, and my friend's english is not the best, but that doesn't mean we are retarded as the sales manager apparently thought, so my friend prefered to buy the car somewhere else.
I didn't drive the car, but looks nice, but my friend says he really loves it. I hated the GPS the few minutes I tried to use it, we almost got lost in Houston... lol
I don't know if everybody finds it difficult to use, or I am just too used to my garmin...
Good look to all of you looking for one, and congratulation to those that already bought one.
#3826 of 5064 Used 2008 TSX
Sep 14, 2008 (5:16 pm)
I was wondering if the following is a good deal on a used 2008 TSX (without navi):
1 previous owner
Sale price: $23,745 (before TTL)

Sorta - that car was about 26-27K new and you'd think the resale value should be lower but the TSX retains its value real well. I'd want another 1K off.
