Acura TL, Sedan

I purchase my 06 Accord EX Sdn V6 (red color) on Halloween night 2005. I had mud guards, pin striping with letter "H" at rear of pin stripe, matching color door edge trim and body side molding, moonroof visor, satellite, and gold package. The Honda was garage kept, and was show room new. I was sorry to lose the car, but for 10 years I wanted an Acura. When Acura big price discount came on 08 TL's, I made the decision to go for it.
It was my once in a life time to buy an upscale car at the price given. I sold the 06 Honda (with 22,000 miles) as a trade because it kept my final line price low when buying the TL. Also, I owned a 1999 Accord Sdn EX V6 with 120,000 miles.
I've seen on Auto Trader 06 Accords Sdn EX V6 with high price of $21,000 to a low price of $17,000. Many have much higher miles.
Apprx. one month went by, and I saw my 06 Accord for sale on the internet (Auto Trader-Boardwalk Acura) for $20,000. I was given $18,000 for the 06 Accord when purchasing the 08 TL. I called Boardwalk, and offered them $18,500 to buy back the 06 Accord. They agreed, and I drove to Boardwalk, and re-purchase my 06 Accord. I traded my 99 Accord to Boardwalk, for $4,000. I live apprx. 40 miles from Boardwalk, but I would drive 400 miles to get a deal. Don't be afraid to travel that extra mile to find a deal that would keep $$$ in your pocket. Bill, he Finance Manager was a great guy to work with.

Vehyemyes: The Red (Hornet) Acura is just about to enter 1000 miles. I'm sure if you contact Boardwalk business manager that he would work with you. I think that Boardwalk don't have any TL w/nav in their lot. The problem with having no TL w/nav is that the dealer would find you one, but the dealer that has a TL w/nav may want more for the car. I would speak to the Finance Manager, and tell him that you want to buy one "now, but here is the price that I want to pay. I paid 29,990.00. If you have a trade, then make sure you know what you want for the car, and don't let the trade come up at the same time that your negotiating for the TL. Make sure that they are two separate deals.
#9847 of 12077 What is a good deal on 2008 TL-S in Ohio these days?
Oct 27, 2008 (10:22 am)
Looking to get one of the last TL-S models. The more I see the 2009, the more I like the cleaner 2008!

im waiting till nov 1st, im hoping to get a type-s lower than the 31,500 i got the dealer down to end of sept....im hoping to get them to 30,500 or 30k and ill take it including destination charge
Oct 28, 2008 (5:54 pm)
That's a good idea..but keep in mind that, Acura rebates ($3500 cash back) are suppose to expire on 11/03.....so you might to avail this opportunity. On the other hand, given Honda's dismal performance (http://www.autospies.com/news/Honda-Profits-Drop-81-In-North-America-And-41-Glo- bally-In-Second-Quarter-36674/), it would be interesting to see if they get more aggressive in pushing the '08 TL's out of the dealers.....

Oct 28, 2008 (7:09 pm)
I just got the following quote for 2008 TL (including protection package):
$28,500 + $600 Doc Fee + TTL
The price includes $3500 incentive plus 0.9% financing. What will be a reasonable counter offer?
Oct 30, 2008 (6:34 am)
any word on the incentives for November in regards to the 08 TL

i think with the way the economy is going, they will at least keep the same incentives but dealers with come down alittle more on pricing as they push to move the remainder of 08's..
From what people are telling me who have bought new cars, most dealerships are hurting for sales and have been doing invoice and lower...
in my case im in no rush or a new car but if a good deal comes along ill jump on it in Nov....
#9853 of 12077 2008 TL vs. G35 deals
Oct 30, 2008 (10:30 am)
Folks, I don't mean to deviate from the main topic, but wondering if anyone in this forum considered the '08 G35? This morning I received an email from a local dealer (MN) for an '08 G35x AWD w/ Premium, Wood & Navigation for $32.5 k before TTL AND 0.9% financing for 72 months. I have not done any further negotiations since I never looked at the G35 before, but I think this is a pretty good deal.....any inputs? I guess I need to test drive the '08 G35 (have driven my cousins 1st gen '05 G35) before I can make a good comparison with the '08 TL that I am considering to purchase.....

That looks like a very good deal for the G35x AWD. An 08 TL with nav can be had for around 31k, but it does not come with AWD. I believe the TL is a better cruiser while the G35 is more sporty around curvy roads. I also believe the G35 is quite a bit more thirsty, particularly in stop and go traffic Either one is an excellent entry luxury car, particularly at this price range!!
