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?

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?

skodukula, great job.on the price. As for extra warranty, I got one once, and it never paid off. I had that car for 13 years.
I don't believe in any paint protection. Consumer Reports doesn't either. Nothing is going to last as long as the 'guarantee'. Years ago there used to be a process called 'porcelainizing" which worked for awhile...until the paint underneath cracked due to different rates of expansion of the 2 layers. Research waxes, and enjoy the 'pleasure' of waxing your own car. (Its a pleasure to me, I know others disagree)

I contacted quite a few dealers in the area and I have a feeling that they may have some agreement among them. For TL+tech, there is no way that dealers in other areas would offer $33800 + TTL and Florida dealers stick with $35500 + TTL. This is just insane. I may have to get it from an out state dealer and have it shipped to me. It still saves me a grand.

You are God
I wish I had checked this morning I could have saved a few hundred dollars. I got some internet prices, 33,998 at McGrath and 24,237 at Continital. So I called back Rizza and agreed to 34,200 with floor mats and splash guards , got color I wanted and just 3 miles on car, I messed up and didn't ask for bodyside mldg which I bet I could have gotten. Now they want 295 for them , they wouldn't move on that price so I didn't get them. Oh well, if I had only waited a day, so it goes. I would never have believed that you could get this TL with Tech for under 33,800, but you showed you can, great job. I pick mine up on Wed.

That should be good, the only other thing when you are picking the car is they will try to sell Warranty etc, based on other folks response just do not commit yourself for it as they will make it sound like you might need it.
Similarly for waxing the car option - Simoniz they will say its an $800 package. Just as Chasboy said enjoy the car driving and as well cleaning/waxing it. The other accesory i suggest is Trunk Tray. I got it at $30 and you have that on the Continental web site parts special price. I paid like $84. you have the rest needed on your car already. Just enjoying it is the best thing. In 2 days I drove close to150 miles and I love it.
Have a a great time.
#10354 of 12077 Used Acura TL....
Apr 24, 2009 (5:06 am)
I am looking at a used 2005 TL with 73000 miles and the Dealer is asking $11,000. I used to own a 1996 Honda Accord EX which gave me zero head aches and ran very well up until I deployed overseas last year. 260,000 miles was the last reading before we parted. After a year of driving around in a 53,000 pound truck in the blistering heat, I would like to ride in something smooth and easy. I am looking long term, especially with the economy being what it is, and have a tight budget towards my next car. Is this a good buy, and being a Honda product, are they as reliable? Any help is appreciated, Thank you for your time.......
#10355 of 12077 2009 TL RECH W/ SH-AWD
Apr 24, 2009 (5:41 am)
What is the realistic target price that I can expect to get this car for? I live in South Florida (Miami area) All I hear from the dealers is that the SH-AWD is limited production, not much dealing on price and also that the 2000 dealer cash back is not offered this month (one dealer told me that so far of 3 dealers I have seen, the other 2 didn't say yes or no)

Go to this website and try scouting around for a true answer on the cash back, or else, go to Consumer Reports online. I paid the $14 for the detailed price report and it paid back in spades.
That limited production line is a bunch of crap.
And...I have friends with a 3-4 year old TL and he and she love it. They replaced their other car with an RDX as well.
