Acura TL, Sedan
#10283 of 12077 Louisville YES...New Orleans NO TL w/Tech FWD $33800 few days ago
Apr 05, 2009 (10:02 am)
Im from New Orleans. I posted about 2 weeks ago about my problem getting a reasonable price on the 09 TL FWD w/tech package. (See earlier post below) Anyway, earlier this week I ended up flying out to Louisville, KY (Accura at Oxmoor) and picked up the car for $33,800 plus tax title license. It came with full tank of gas. Even after paying $150 for airline ticket, $58 hotel one night, $35 food, and $15 extra gas, I saved between about $4000 and $1000 over best deals in Louisiana offered in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport.
Got 28mpg on drive home and was an easy 10 hour drive in this great car. According to Consumer Report, I paid way under INVOICE price. $36316 invoice (include destination) less $2000 dealer insentive, less $516 of the factory "holdback" = $33800. The dealer would have made $600 which is the remaining part of the "holdback" which they kept. The dealership is very nice and located about 10 miles from Louisville airport. The dealer salesman picked me up at the airport and had all of the paperwork already done with faxes and overnight fedex's before the sale ( they dealt with my credit union in New Orleans). OHHH and my credit union matched the 3.9% 5yr fiancing offered by Acura. (If you have a credit union they will match a dealer finance offer if you show them the advertisement so they can investigate the rate to match it.)
For anyone that wants the name of the salesman, drop me a line and i will share it. mailitomehereyahooooooooo.com i guess that is allowed. I am not sure how prices will change now that the insentive/and or holdback has expired.....but I do believe that Louisville will always have a price hard to beat. DEFINITELY BETTER THAN YOU CAN GET AT THE NEW ORLEANS ACURA DEALERSHIP.....They were ridiculously high!!! Good luck!

KimsDad, great job!!! I bet you never enjoyed a 'shakedown cruise' more either!!
My in-laws neighbor did a similar thing when the MDX first came out. You got a great deal!
NOW, tell me how much do you love this car?

On you auto:
MSRP: $ 38,685
Invoice: $ $36,316 (including $760 in Destination)
Dealer Cash: - $ 2000.00
Invoice - Dealer Cash: $34,316
That is the # you aught to be targeting. Remember the dealer is also making 2% on the vehicle...Here's how you calculate that #: MSRP - Destination * 2% = what the dealership is making off the deal AT INVOICE. Anything above invoice is frosting on the cake for them!! Now, that being said...you may be hard pressed to find a dealer that will give you the auto at invoice...I paid 37,721 for my SH-AWD w/ tech here in Wisconsin...and yes, the cars are "hard to find" here too.
There are many examples of what others are paying for you EXACT car in this Forum. although it may take a bit of time...it is WELL WORTH the read. One more item...make sure that any deal you get in writing so that you know what is included in you'deal' and what is not. For the # above, I would assume that the $34,316 is the 'Out The Door" price for the car...meaning that this is the FINAL cost for the car - add your local TTL to that # and that is where you aught to be targeting. The only additional charges should be: Documentation Fee (usually $95 to $150 - states regulate this fee and you may not be able to negotiate this fee); Title, Taxes & Licence charges.

That seems like a hell of a good price, I am going to Rizza on Fri to test drive the base, I thought that if I could get that for around 32,000 it would be good, your tech is not that much more. How was dealing with Rizza, they seemed low key in my first visit, the sales person was a female name was D****. Any help you can give me would be great.

My suggestion Call all dealers if you want to get a price and the price I got on the one you are looking is 31,398 +ttl dd.
Keep me posted as I am still calling all dealers in and around Chicago and Wisconsin to see if the can better deal. I am in no hurry to close the deal and would close before 4/30. I will take my time on the deal so check with all the deal masters.
