Sounds to be a great deal. I paid 32k OTD for a 2012 TSX Tech in the LA (California ) area for a black on black and dont know of anyone who paid that paid that low price in my area

#5027 of 5047 Dealer car?

Our local dealer (Cincinnati) has a 2012 TSX tech package with 5500 miles. Does anybody have a thought where I should start my offer. 5500 miles is just a few percent of the car's lifespan, but it's the best few percent! Not hanks!

I'm shooting from the hip here, but I'd say a sale price of $28,500 seems like a good place to start. That's a very nice car!
#5029 of 5047 2012 TSX Tech - $32.8K
Jan 02, 2013 (1:18 pm)
We ended up passing on the dealer car and closing with another dealership that had a 2012 tech package in stock with <100 miles. $32,800 OTD including TTL. (6.5% sales tax). Since the MSRP for the 12 and the 13 were so close, I asked if they could come close to that on a 13, but the salesman told me that there are a lot more incentives for the 12, so no dice. It always kills me when I don't do as well as other posters, but we love the car, and we came close! Thanks for the advice everyone!

#5032 of 5047 V6 TSX without a 6 speed manual???
Feb 12, 2013 (2:58 pm)
What is the purpose of not offering the V6 with a 6 speed manual? Why only in the 4 cylinder version? Is this new for 2013? Paddle shifters are not the same thing.

Acura has never offered the V6 TSX with a manual - the take rate is so low it was not worth it to them. Even the I4 MT is now limited to the SE model only.

Agree. The take rate with manuals across the board is super low. Make sure you take an extensive drive in a V6 TSX before you commit to it. The V6 TSX is a strong accelerator, merger, & passer. The hydraulic power steering provides typical "Honda" feedback, as opposed to the 4cyl's lifeless electric power steering which is the main reason I traded my 2010 TSX Tech.
That strong acceleration comes with a price. The V6 is like a boat anchor sitting over the front axle. It weighs close to 250 lbs more. There's lots of torque steer if you aren't light on the throttle at takeoff. The traction control was constantly fighting to keep that monster on the right path during hard cornering.
