#11118 of 12077 Re: 08 pricing [96accord]
Feb 17, 2010 (6:25 am)
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.

$2,000 dealer incentive can be applied (depending on if the dealership is willing) to all tech models....regardless of FWD or AWD versions.
Will that incentive be around next month? Who knows. But, at least in my area (SW OH), these cars are slow movers. Both Acura dealerships around me have loads of inventory. Using that as a very narrow observation, I'd say those incentives will continue in March. But, that's just a personal observation.

The deal includes: Price of car for $35,000. PLUS tax 8% and other fees. For a total of: $38,600. The dealer will also have to do a dealer trade for this car with a nearby dealer (cost of getting car is included in final price). Should I jump on this deal?

The car has a MSRP of $40,645 and invoice of $37,821, so the $35,000 price quote represent $5,645 off sticker and $821 under invoice before dealer cash. The OTD price $38,600 - selling price $35,000 - sales tax $2,800 = $800 to cover DMV registration and other fees sounds reasonable, too. So, IMO any further negotiation or shopping around may yield little to zero additional saving. The only wild card is whether Acura will sweeten the deal in March -- or take away the $2,000 dealer cash for Tech models.

rozario...I'm of the same belief as jtla on this. Depending on how far the dealer swap is for your car (doesn't your dealer have much stock? Is it a weird color combo?), I'm not so certain any charge for that is legit. Dealer keeping a part of the Acura marketing money doesn't surprise me. And, I think it's expected that they do.
It's up to you if you want to see if Acura sweetens the manufacturer to dealer cash back. Just based on what they did last year, they may add another $500 making a total of $2,500 incentive. Or, they may remove part, or all of the incentive.
We really won't know until March hits.
For all the stock the dealers have around me, none of them have my preferred combo...either crystal black pearl with umber interior, or red basque pearl with taupe interior. Most of the cars around me are either black, silver, white with black interior. Just a personal choice, but I find those combos boring.
