Acura TL, Sedan
#3450 of 12041 Re: Memorial Day Financing Special
May 22, 2005 (8:11 am)
I'm in Tallahassee, FL looking to upgrade from my 1999 626 to a TL and did the dealership thing yesterday. I was told that next weekend (starting Thursday, actually) Acura is going to run a financing deal through Monday (Memorial Day) - the guy was hazy on the specifics, but told me that he thought it would start at 1.99% for 36 months, and be either 2.99% or 3.99% for 48/60 months depending on your credit (he wan't sure about it, though). I assume this would be a nationwide thing.
Anyway, I'm probably going to try Jacksonville because trying to buy a car in a town like Tallahassee is just asking for a ripoff - they have no competition and they know it. He pretty much told me that they "bargain" down to about $32,500 for a TL w/o nav (excluding TT& L), which based on the prices you guys have quoted sounds pretty bad.
If the financing deal is as I understand it, do you guys think they're going to be less willing to bargain the price down as well as some of you have gotten?

Thanks laurasdada! Unfortunately they couldn't get the body side molding on because the service garage closed and they gave me a TSX loaner.
I think the TL looks great in all colors, and didn't mean to diss anyone's choice of color, and after looking at my posts I did come across as dissing, sorry.
#3453 of 12041 2005 Acura TL Non Nav Purchase price - Chicago Suburbs
May 22, 2005 (3:31 pm)
I just purchased a 2005 Acura TL Automatic/Non Navigation with only 8 miles on it yesterday at Acura of Libertville, IL. Here is the breakdown:
$30638 Price, includes destination
$ 1995 Sales Tax
$ 143 License (new)
$ 55.39 Title
$32831.39 Total Out the Door Price
I had contacted this dealer via email and received an email requesting me to call him for an actual quote. He quoted me $30688. Another dealer in the far northwest suburbs via telephone quoted me $31800. When I told them that that the other dealer came in much lower, he matched the offer but only if I chose silver. Libertyville had any color available and also lowered their quote another $50 to $30638. Both dealers included the protection package in the price.
I didn't want silver so purchased the car at Acura of Libertyville. I was in and out of the dealership within 1 hour. No hassles, no pressure... a very pleasant buying experience. Negotiating via email and telephone is the way to go.
Thanks to all who posted their buying experiences, it was a huge help. For future posters, please remember to itemize the purchase details. Only providing an out of door price does not allow for useful comparisons. Also, ignore the Edmund's TMV price, it seems that most people are getting prices substancially lower than it.
So far, I love the car, it's really fun to drive! Thanks everybody!

Thanks for the detailed information. Out of curiosity, did the price include a dealer protection package in that price, and if so, which one? My understanding is that there are two different pro paks;
PP1 includes wheel locks, splash guards, and trunk tray and retails for $237
PP2 includes wheel locks, splash guards, and all weather floor mats and retails for $320
Thanks in advance!

Pantherfan, I am looking at buying a TL this month in the charlotte area as well. Did you already buy your TL, if so how much did you pay for it and where did you get it from.

I currently have a quote of $33,300 plus 2 free oil changes on a SSM w/Nav from a west suburban Chicago dealership. This includes the destination charge as well as the protection package (Trunk Tray, All Season Mats and Splash Guards).
Is this a good price???
