MY changeover for the TSX is usually around November.
#4828 of 5064 Price Paid - Certified 2009 TSX

Edmunds.com helped a lot in our recent car buying decision. After three weeks of driving cars and weighing options, we pulled the trigger on an '09 TSX Tech yesterday. So time to give back to any potential certified buyers out there. So here is the scoop from NC:
2009 Certified Pre-owned TSX Auto w/ Tech Package (Fully Loaded)
Palladium (Silver) Exterior / Taupe Interior
31,700 miles, Very clean ext./int., local car with clean carfax, dealer installed: new kuhmo tires, new brakes and of course full service/detail.
Negotiated installation of splash guards and trunk tray before we took delivery.
And now the important part: Paid $25,700 (sales price) + $771 (tax) + $398 (doc.) + $69 (tag)
For a grand total of: $26,938 out-the-door
Now, I should add we originally went to the dealer to drive a used IS-250 and the wife drove the TSX by my suggestion and loved it. So we walked away to think about it. Four to Five days later we returned, drove the car again and took some time to look it over. Walked out with the number of $26,500 plus tax/doc./tag and a "we will think about it." Returned 4 days later and spent about an hour in negotiation to arrive at the deal.
Hope this helps with any buyers considering a CPO TSX. I think we made out OK when it was all said and done (TMV: Retail - $26,155 / CPO Retail - $27,992). Feel free to weigh in; just don't make me feel too bad. Good Luck!

Getting confirmation of a good deal after the fact is not very usefull - be glad that you, and more importantly, the wife, found a car you like.
Relatively speaking getting a CPO is rarely a good deal on a TSX compared to private party or new. Even the CPO process itself is a waste of money on a car as reliable as the TSX (especially at low miles). Used car prices are high at the moment but will go down once new stock improves.
As a reference, when I got my 06 (NAV) in the fall of 09, CPOs like mine (20K miles) were in the 23-25K range - I bought it private party for 18,600.
#4830 of 5064 4-cylinder 2011 TSX Tech
Aug 06, 2011 (6:08 pm)
I'm shopping around for my first Acura. I'm looking for a new 4-cylinder 2011 TSX Tech. There seems to be a shortage of these cars due to the earthquake as the three dealers around here do not have many of them to sell and are not willing to negotiate that much.
The best quote I've got on a silver/ebony is 33k ($500 less than MSRP). This car already has the body moldings package installed (I don't want it but have no choice, dealer says it's $350). What do you think I should do? Should I pull the trigger or wait for a better offer may be later this year?

If you can, wait. When supply is ample, the TSX sells at just above invoice in the bigger markets. The MY12 cars are likely to show up in Nov - late Oct might be a good time to pick up a '11 model.

Yes, this is very true. I will say to all pre-owned buyers that the longer you can wait the better. Regretfully, we needed a car ASAP. I am not a "CPO" fan by no means! However, in our area a used new body TSX from Private Party is rare. What is even more rare is one that has the right color, tech pkg and so on.
There are plenty of '09-'10 lease turn-ins out there that become CPO vehicles. Since there were 5 matches accessible to us it allowed us to play that card when we were at the dealer. So if you want a CPO car, know there are plenty to choose from. Some are not well driven (because they are lease vehicles) so make sure you check for scratches/dents in person.
Final word from our experience is that most of these CPO cars will sale for around the same thing. It is just a matter of who will go that few extra hundred off and your patience of course. If you get lucky and find that private party selling their 2 year old car and it checks out, jump on it.
#4833 of 5064 Dealer playing games?
Aug 19, 2011 (6:59 am)
Lowest quote for brand new TSX with tech around $28xxx (does not include any of the fees). Out the door $31xxx.
Dealer refuses to provide quote in writing. Asking for $1000 deposit to hold the car (they don't have the one I want on their lot. getting one from a nearby dealer) I suspect they are playing the low-balling game with me. If not, is this is really good price?
