yes, acura/honda TOTAL sales are down...but do you know how well the TSX has been selling? the TSX is up 5.7% in YTD sales thru April 2009 when compared to YTD sales thru April 2008 and it's the only vehicle in the Honda/Acura lineup with a positive % in that time period. (http://www.hondabeat.com/sales_stats.php).
Acura knows where they can make the most money and it's with the TSX. so you arent going to get any special financing like you can with the TL. i would suggest you looking into the credit unions near where you live. they should be able to do better than 6%. good luck with trying to get 3.9, 60 months from Acura though...i don't see that happening for you.

I just bought this last week; it was service loaner car with the dealer. (showed up as corporate fleet on reports)
Arctic Blue Pearl/Ebony
+ 9.25% CA tax ~ $2,000
+ registration and other fee ~ $250
Final out the door price = $23,810
put 5K down and financed the rest at 3.9% for 36 months.
I think it's a good deal, what do you guys think?

I finally gave up on waiting for financing incentives and bought a TSX with Tech. I didn't have a trade in so the only things that mattered to me in the negotiating process was interest rate and price.
I was able to negotiate the price down to $29,600 (including destination) without too much effort.
The interest rate was a different story. They initially came at me with almost 6% on a 60 month. Then when I said that wasn't even close to acceptable, they came back with 5.5% on a 60 month. Then they tried to sell me all kinds of service plans/protection plans/extended warranties. They offered 4.75% on a 60 month if I bought one of the service plans. I strongly believe that all extended warranties/service/protection plans are a complete waste of money and declined any of them. I said I wanted 5% with no plans and he said he would meet in the middle at 5.25%. I was ready to walk out and finally he agreed to 5% on a 60 month.

If you like the older style TSX alot better than the 2009, then you got a good deal. I personally would have much rather paid an extra $2000 and gotten a comprable 2009 TSX.

Where did you go? Is this Southern California? That's not much more than a 2006 TSX (with Navi) I am looking at for around $20K, before negotiation. What would be a fair price?

This was in bay area (Nor. Cal).. I negotiated down from 23K to 21.5K ..
the good thing was only 9K miles on it and 1yr./+12K extended warranty that comes with certified cars.
#4050 of 5064 Fair price for Acura "wrap" warranty
May 21, 2009 (4:15 am)
First post on this Forum. Closing on a Certified 2006 TSX---AUTO without Navigation from my local Acura dealer.
Have to decide whether to purchase the extended "wrap" bumper to bumper warranty to match the 70k/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. And if so what is a fair price. As a second car, the TSX will run low mileage so I would be buying 2 plus years of possible peace of mind insurance. A $850 offer is on the table---down from a $1,500 list!!!!!. Any assistance would be appreciated---I have to decide at this week.

Adamh1: What dealer did you get that deal from?
Was the 5% rate from Honda Finance or from a bank via the dealer?
Was your credit score about 740?

Initially it was through Bank of America. But then the following day, BOA said they wanted a bigger down payment. So the dealer went to Honda Financial and got a concession to meet the same terms.
You normally wouldn't be able to get this rate through Honda Financial (without incentives) ... I got lucky.
My score was between 750 and 800.
