Acura TSX, Sedan
#4320 of 5064 Had to give my input

I went on here to get an idea what kind of incentive is available and what people are paying and cannot believe what most people are paying.
You do not pay any more than invoice + destination, etc. For example, a 2010 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A) per Edmunds has an MSRP $38760 and invoice of $35692. This means that the vehicle's stated price already includes destination. Since there is $2000 in factory support or "trunk money," you should be able to buy this car at $33692 or less + tax/fees. Remember that the dealer has another 3% of holdback to play with.
If you leave anymore than $1000 for the dealer, that's simply too much in this market/economy. I just paid $18050 for a new 2009 Accord LX auto. This car has an MSRP of $22400 and there's $1500 in factory support and $2000 difference between invoice and MSRP. That's nearly $4400 off on a $22000 car.
Right now I am considering a TSX and was quoted $25500 for a base 09. I am still debating if I should deal for a 2010.

Hi I'm 19 own an 05 altima 3.5se that I plan on giving to my little brother very soon because I saw a tsx and fell in love with it. I am thinking really hard about the tsx but I need some opinions. Do you guys think I should get a new tsx or by me being so young just try an 04 or 05 tsx. I'm really in love with the tsx because it seems like its the perfect car for a young college girl like myself.I'm not trying to impress anyone by getting the tl which is much bigger I just need something nice && cute. By the way what is the cheapest price I can find an 04 or 05 tsx. Your opinions will count and will be very helpful!

what's wrong with your Altima? You're going to give a 3.5 SE Altima to your little brother who is presumably 16? Did the car do something to you to make you not like it?

Good luck! I would wait if I were you. Unfortunately I am in an area where there is just ONE Acura dealer in my area. They can't keep the TSX in Stock. Another reason is Acura has cut back production in Japan. The TSX is made 100% in Japan unlike the TL is made in Ohio. Again I ordered and waited 3 months for my 2010 TSX. It sure the hell isn't an Accord! It's like comparing a Lexus and a Toyota! The maintenance isn't like an Accord either. So be prepared.
#4324 of 5064 A good deal?
Nov 21, 2009 (2:05 pm)
Just got an offer from one of acura dealers in NJ. OTD 30149. 2010 TSX 5A 4cl Base. Also there is a special event running now for financing APR 2.9% 48-60 months. Is that a good deal? Please share your thoughts!

"OTD" differs depending on your state tax ( which varies) and the dealer fee. Assuming there wasn't a trade involved, what did you pay for the car ( less state tax and dealer fee )?

#4329 of 5064 Is the TSX $$ Premium over the Accord Worth It
Nov 25, 2009 (12:25 pm)
I am considering a 2010 Accord EXL-V6 with Nav and the new 2010 TSX V6 with Tech. My best price on the Accord is 29,092 plus TTL. It looks like even the best negotiating on a TSX will will not get me below $34,000. A side-by-side comparison tells me that in addition to the Acura badge, with the TSX I get an additonal 12 month warranty, rear seat heater ducts, memory seats, lumbar support, surround sounds, HID headlights and 18" wheels but a little less room. I know this is subjective, but has anyone successfully justified the $5,000 price premium on the TSX over the Accord? I like the styling on the TSX much more but I am having a hard time convincing myself to spend the extra 5K. My significant other has no interest in engaging me in this conversation so your comments and thoughts would be appreciated.
