Acura TL, Sedan
#10340 of 12077 First offer from my local dealership....
Apr 22, 2009 (6:47 am)
Not real sure if this is a good deal or not.... I'll cut and paste the email.... I am also looking at a 2009 RL. Both #'s are here. Anyone that can give me information on whether or not this is a good deal or if I can do better....let me know...
It was a pleasure visiting with you earlier this afternoon. I have put together lease quotes on the RL and TL for you as follows
2009 RL Base model (includes wheel locks)
Lease 36 months/15,000mi per year with $2,500 down ($1,000 lease loyalty from Acura and $1,500 from you) payment of $637 per month
2009 TL Tech Package (includes body side molding, trunk tray, all season mats, splash guards, wheel locks)
Lease- 36 months /15,000mi per year with $2,500 down ($1,500 lease loyalty from Acura and $1,000 from you) payment of $517 per month.
Both leases include our making the final payment on your current lease for you. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. We look forward to earning your business again.
My response was this:
Thanks for the figures.
Can you give me information for the following:
• MSRP for each car
• Selling price for each car
• Residual % and purchase price at end of lease for each car
• Money factor for each lease – My credit is the same as it was when I purchased back in 2006 – should be above 750.
His emailed response was:
Following is a breakdown of the details.
Sales Price- $40,134+ttl (with Wheel Locks)
Residual Value 45% ($21,348). Money Factor 0.00215
Sales Price- $36,949+ttl (with Bodyside Molding, Splash Guards, All Season Mats, trunk Tray, Locks)
Residual Value- 56% ($22,089.20) Money Factor 0.00215
On both vehicles American Honda is waiving the standard sales tax (6.25%) through the end of the month as a promotion. The money factor is a special rate used on both vehicles on the 36 month term. I figured your last payment ($699) into the numbers and selling price provided above.

Just got back from Rizza in Orland and got a price of $34,950 include Dest, I told them they were way off, so it looks like I will be going to McGrath in Westmont and on the internet to get close to the 33,500-33,800 mark. They said bring back a wriiten offer and they would match lees 100.
#10345 of 12077 09 TL W/tech FWD I paid $33800 + tax & lic
Apr 22, 2009 (12:59 pm)
I posted a few times a couple of weeks ago....I did not get the BEST price that I have seen on this board but pretty close to it. I bought a new 09 TL w/tech FWD for $33800. I was quarter backing for my daughter who actually gets the car. Anyway, this price was for EVERYTHING except tax and license. Even got the 3.9% int rate that they had at the time. (I think that i saw a TV commercial the other day where they are offering 2.9% now) I flew from New Orleans to Louisville KY to pick it up. Salesman picked me up and we drove 10 miles to the dealership and he had the car ready to go under the overhang next to the showroom. Had a nice 700 mile drive back home but did not mind. This car drives better than the Audi and Merc that i had years ago. The tech pac is awesome! Sweet ride.
Bottom line is that if you can not get a good price locally, you can always try outside of your city or state for a deal. I just emailed 3 dealers and the Louisville KY dealer accepted MY BOTTOM LINE OFFER! Basically i said in my email that this was my offer and not to call me back unless it was acceptable. All of them called anyway, and I made it a short conversation unless they were going to take my original offer. I did not even have to haggle with Louisville salesman. He called to say he would take the offer. I have his name and number if you like. You can email me at mailitomehereyahoo. commmm. Also, if you do not want to fly in to pick up a car, you can have it shipped by truck. You just look up "driveaway" in yellow pages and get one locally to arrange to have a truck bring the car back. I had a price of $535 to pick it up for the 700+ mile trip from KY to New Orleans LA, but picking it us was cheaper.
Finally, i would like to suggest that anyone that knows what kind of car they want, that they get an online "New Car Price Service Report" from Consumer Reports. It cost about $15 but it is a MUST if you want to know how much the dealer paid for the car and what price you need to offer. It shows you any "dealer insentives" or "holdback" that might be used to get the car for much less than invoice price. It even has negotiating tips etc......about 14 pages long. I THINK that it might give a break down of any options that you want to add on the car and cost and retail prices for each i THINK. I did not buy any options for the TL w/tech since it has everything you need already.

Just a heads up that Florida dealer also charges this notorious document fees. It is usually about $599. I had talked quite a few Tampa dealers and they don't look motivated to sell their cars. I got stuck at $34900+$599 (doc fees).

I picked up my TL with Tech from Continental Acura. They beat the best price by 10% of the difference. Here is the details.
MSRP - 39445
Price OTD - 33384 (Incl.Dest, no accesories)
Tax - 7.25%
Doc fee - 150
Title, Reg - 80
Add below Accesories -
Splash Guards Installed - $175 (excl.tax)
Trunk Tray and Mats - $ 193 (Excl. Tax)
The above rate included the 2K rebate and the special financing. the title fee is less because of the transfer (Traded in - 2000 Camry (111K miles) for 3850). Overall the dealer is great experience, he was very patient to work with me and once i brought the low cost, no questions asked, they did not have the color and provided me the accesories at discounted prices.
Got the Black/Ebony - had 87 miles. Just drove 40 miles so far from last evening.. Great car.. waiting for the weekend awesome weather. Did not get extra warranty or paint protections. I would like to research and go back if needed. Let me know if you suggest paint protections or warranty.
Note - In Chicago the price you quoted is good, I was able to get close to $300 as my dealers intial price was way high and the 10% less match gave me the additional $300. So anything less than 33600 is a great price so far in the Chicago area.
#10348 of 12077 TL-FWD/Tech 33,700 Good Price?
Apr 23, 2009 (12:27 pm)
Got a first quote for 33,700 in SF Bay area. Is this a good price for TL-FWD/Tech.
Possibility of going any lower?
Deciding between this and ES350 but now leaning towards TL because of feature/dollar.

I am having the same problem in Tampa. It seems Ferman Acura is not really motivated to sell. I offered them 31896 + ttl on a base TL, they didn't take it. Have you had any luck in this area?
