Acura TL, Sedan
#6179 of 12077 '06 TL 5 Spd - no navi
May 30, 2006 (5:00 am)
I was able to get $31,072 for the basic car, including destination (Edmunds TMV - $32,789). Royal Blue Pearl with Quartz Interior. I added All season mats, mud flaps, wheel locks, cargo tray, touch-up paint. With doc fees and first year "free" maintenance the cost came to exactly $32,000. Plus, they gave me $3,800 for my 1996 Accord with 128K miles in what I would call average overall condition (TMV for Trade-in $2700, private sales $3,800, local papers have advertised similar private sale vehicles for $3,500 to $4,000).
This is in Kansas City - overall about $1,850 less than I thought I would have pay based on my research of Acura prices in the area and current private sales prices of my vehicle.
Not as good as some quotes I am seeing in this forum, but pretty good for the region.

I bought at Goodson and had a good experience with their internet guy (who is not in that position anymore)...
Vandergriff has given some really good offers as well.

Cyclonemike, just started looking in KC, which dealer did you use? and what else do I need to know? did you use internet manager or sales rep off floor? color options? Never looked at TL before, but growing on me fast. was leaning towards Passat, but swinging towards the TL thanks

Jay Wolfe Acura - purchased through a sales rep off the floor. I was looking most closely at the Maxima SE and Accord EXV6 as well as the TL. I also drove the Passat, Camry, Civic, Altima, ES350, and 325i. I think they can get just about any color choice you might want. I take delivery today of a car that came in on the carrier yesterday. The BMW was my favorite, but when you go to the 325xi you are looking at $5,000-$6,000 more. The dealer knew I was getting prices from both the Nissan and the Honda dealer and that they would need to be aggressive to get my business. They knew that I would have been willing to buy any of the three cars, but the TL was my favorite. They have to know you are willing to walk.

What was your salesman's name? 3 of us work in the Boston area and each are looking to purchase on a TL. With 3 of us buying together we should get a pretty good deal. Just to confirm, you got the navi right?

Depending on your area. Here in SoCal the lowest I've seen for
06 TL w/ Navi (5AT or 6MT) is for $31,660 (including destination charge) plus Tax, Title, License and Fees. I'm not sure if this come with the Protection Package (wheel locks, splash guards, all-weather mats-or substitue for truck tray).
See if they can drop it to $32,000 (including destination)+TTL and insist on getting the entire ProPack included not just the wheel locks and the rear lip spoiler accessory.
I bought mine in L.A. back in December 2005. I paid $32,290 (including destination) with Propack +TTL for an 06 TL 5AT w/ Navi. I could have waited a few months but I been waiting too long! Love my TL!
