Be very wary of dealing with Curry Acura. I wanted to buy my (former) 2010 TSX Tech from them back in August 2009. I lived literally 4 miles up the road from them at the time. I test drove the car & liked it. I went back twice with my wife to test drive the car. I called the salesman who I'd been dealing with on a Thursday and said to him (on a Thursday): "Tell me how much the car is and I'll give you a deposit on my credit card. I'll pick it up either Saturday afternoon or Sunday this weekend."
Salesman: "I'm sorry nyccarguy, my boss doesn't want me to give out prices over the phone."
I ended up buying somewhere else. Try Acura of Westchester (Larchmont). Their service department was fantastic to deal with. I lived in Hartsdale and went out of my way to Larchmont to service the car. I wouldn't give Curry a dime.
That being said, if you go to Curry with an out the door price and they try to "bump you" or say "Let's meet in the middle," then walk out the door.
Good luck & let us know where you buy.

Or probably Greenwich Acura- they are straight up honest, no finance guy in the back room waiting to sell you a crap of add ons. I bought my former and current Tl there with no haggle however, the service department there is a joke mainly because of the service manager- so many complaints aganst him and he is still around-maybe some form of unknown nepotism.

You live in Westchester or ct billy? Where do you service your TL?
Not only is the service dept at Acura of Westchester very good, they are very reasonably priced as far as luxury car dealers in our area go. I even bought snow tires from them. They matched tire rack's price.

I live in CT but I am familiar with Westchester Acura.
I service mine at Acura of Milford-very reasonable priced too.

Gotcha, so you live a little further up. I live in Stamford.
I'm going to try and buy cars in NY from now on. $75 doc fee. As opposed to $299 (Greenwich Honda) & $369 (H & L Chevrolet in Wilton).
I see dealers advertise from Norwalk, Milford & points north, are the cars generally cheaper to buy up your way?

You would think so but it is not, the doc fees they charge are absurd-$499. 349 so on and so forth- never saw any below $300. Greenwich was pretty cheap charging only $139.00.
I dealt with Westchester when I graduated back in 2000. There were several incentives (dealer cash) floating around on the TL. I told the sales guy to factor those numbers in and here was his reply- Don't put your hands in my pocket and I wont put mine in yours- I walked right out.

Young salesman named Ryan.Poor guy had to make several trips to the back office before deal was consummated.

Got an offer of 35,300 plus taxes license and doc fees. This is the best offer I've received in the NYC area. Thoughts?
