Honda America to Dealer $2000 ends March 1st. What will be after that I have no idea. it could be more of the same? I will tell you that 2 weeks ago, the $2000 ended march 31st. Last week it changed to March 1st. At some point manufacturing slow down will catch up with sales. Also, honda America may feel that recent recalls of Toyota and Lexus may increase showroom visits to Honda and Acura.. This is all speculation on my part, but with $2000 on the line, I will get my 10 SH-AWD this weekend and not gamble on March surprises..

Yeah, I also noticed that the price quoted on carsdirect went up by about $1,500 last week. I suspected that maybe Acura pulled the $2,000 dealer cash for TL Tech models. However, looking into Edmunds, it still shows that the promotion is available until March 31. So, I am confused now.
EDIT: Just checked Edmunds again, and found that the program had been changed to expiring on March 1 indeed. Maybe March 31 was a typo in the first place as most manufacturers update their marketing program once a month. However, carsdirect prices are still $1,500 higher than last week.

I have been lookign at 08 Tl with Nav but the pricing is not making any sense as they are genrally in $28-29K range. Whats is wrong with these dealers. They want to sel these cars for what they almost sold for in 08. Who wants to buy a used car for the price of a new one. Newones are a few thousand more and a certified vehicle with a 100K miles warranty is not the price of a new or any where close to it. A lot fo these acrs are sitting ond ealer lots for months and the salesman and their managers seems to think the 08 TL's are worth more than gold.
Has anyone traded in a 08 for a 09 or 10 TL. What kind of tarde in values are dealers offering. I would assume $18,000 - 20,000 would be the max a dealer would be offering for an 08 TL with low miles. Are they trying to artficially trying to keep the values higher by offering higher trade in values.
An 08 Tl with nav in 15,000 miles is not worth more than $20,000 to me and I don't think there anyone stupid to pay them $28,000 for these cars. Atleast I hope not.

Well ... Acura is no Honda Accord. I currently own two Acuras a 2007 TLS and a 2010 TSX v6 w/Tech. They are worth every penny. No other car manufacturor can come close to reliability, resale, styling and value.. PERIOD! Just food for thought ..Retail for an 2008 TL w/Nav 15K mil is 33K per Kelly Blue Book. These cars hold their value. Trade in Excellent Cond is 27.3K.

My daughter just sold(she got a company car so didn't need the Acura anymore) a 2007 TL with 47000 miles to an Acura dealer for 18500. And you know that when somebody just sells a car to a dealer and is not buying anything they are not going to get top dollar. In fact, Carmax was offering 17500. So I think you're statement that an 08 TL w/Nav w/15k miles is only worth 20k is pretty naive.
Plus, just because a dealer is asking $28000 it doesn't mean they won't take a lot less. It's called negotiation.
#11119 of 12077 After Market Extended Warrenty, 2010TL SH-AWD
Feb 17, 2010 (7:14 am)
I was wondering what a good price is on a 8 year 80K or in particular 10Yr 100K extended warranty might be. Would like to get it from the dealer when I get my TL SH-AWD with Tech, but have no idea what a decent or fair price might be hear in Southern California. I have hear that for a 100K warranty $1500 is a very good low price and $2500 is HIGH.. Any help would be appreciated, thanks
#11120 of 12077 incentive changes?
Feb 17, 2010 (8:22 am)
I had an acura dealer tell me yesterday that the price that I was quoted was "old pricing" and that the new pricing was $400 higher. (comparing prices from dealer to dealer) He then said he magically had one left on the lot with the older pricing. I guess it's standard car dealer bs, but it could be incentive related.
I think I will just drive my 2004 accord a little longer and skip the TL for now.

I have been reading these posts for the last several weeks and used it to narrow down my next car purchase. The cars I am also looking at include: Audi A4, Audi A5, Lexus HS, Lexus IS, Honda Accord, Infiniti G37, and VW CC. I have gone back and fourth with the local dealer here for a few weeks now. I am at the point where I really do feel like there is no more room for negotiating. The final deal includes is for $38,600 TOTAL (including tax, title, dmv, doc, processing, etc.) Am I getting a good deal for this car???***In response to the previous posting, the dealer gave me the same non-sense about the invoice price magically going up $400 dollars***. Once they brought this up, I made it known that I was ready to walk away from the deal and buy a Lexus instead. The only reasoning I can come up with is that the $2000 incentive was only for cars that were on their lot before January.

TRUE, the deals are for cars made in 2009, not 2010. Older stock, and I was told that on January 1st the price of the TL went UP about $450 so that fits... however they still have a lot of cars on the lot, the TL tech sell faster then the $5K more SH-AWD.. I honestly think that a lot will change in MARCH and it will probably favor the Dealer more then the buyer.. Don't get me wrong, deals are still to be had, but to get that sweet $5000 off the SH-AWD tech, you will probably need to act in the next 2 weeks.. Then it gets down to what color and Interior color you want... Good Luck..

Since the sales tax rates and DMV fees vary in a wide range, to ask for opinion on price (or post price of actual deal for that matter), one should list price before TTL and show doc fee separately if it is significant (say, over 100 bucks). Here in CA, we have sales tax near 10% while some states have zero sales tax.
