#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.......

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.

As long as the car has been well maintained, I think you will be very happy with the 05 TL. My family has three TLs, including an 05, and has been very happy with all of them. In terms of reliability, the only serious problem I could imagine is with the transmission, but the 05 transmissions are supposedly much more reliable than those from 2000-2003.

Nice link. Anything on Acura's first quarter sales (Jan - Mar, 09)? Nice to know these things when one is negotiating with a dealer.

here's what i paid for a 2009 Acura, SH-AWD w/ Tech:
Price: $37,000 (including the $700-ish destination fee)
Plates: $80-ish for transfer, not new plates
Plus suburb of Chicago taxes.
Floor mats were included but i had to fight for them. splash guards were not included. I checked the Acura website and they don't show the cars with spash guards. we'll see if i regret not having these..
anyhow, this looked like a good deal. most dealers i called said they could not meet $37,000. One dealer said he could get as low as "the high $37,000's". There was one who said he could go $36,900 but we did not discuss floor mats or splash guards, which would not likely have been included at that rate.
what do you think? i'm still checking the forums to see how i did; seems like there's not a lot of info on the SH-AWD's.

Where did you get such good prices for the SH AWD?

Just returned from Wisconsin with our new to us Acura TL Tech. All I can say is WOW. What a sweet car. Once I get through the 630 page owners manual and the 170 page navigation manual I will feel better. This was used Black on Black and under 1500 miles for $32900 plus tax, title above that.
