#806 of 1111 ACURA RL with TECH PACKAGE
Oct 06, 2006 (12:33 pm)
I am considering a new 2006 ACURA RL with TECH PACKAGE. Is this a good price: $44,500 (in the Los Angeles area)? I understand there is a 3000 dollar incentive on this car.
Question numero dos: Are there any incentives (like the 3000 dollar incentive) on the 2007 RL's?
Question Numero Tres: Do you know of any lease calculators that have up-to-date AHF lease information (like money factors, residuals, etc...) Thanks!

Marketing support is at $4,000 thru 10/31/06 for the 2006 model (not $3,000).
At the rate RLs are selling, Acura (probably) will not have any large incentives on 2007 until December at the earliest (an eductaed guess).

I'm in MA and just learned about the 4k rebate this weekend. There are very few 06 RL's around. Local dealer said if I committed to $41,500, he'd get me the Charcoal / Black Nav RL I want, probably from NY or NJ stock. Left a $500 deposit on Saturday, now Wednesday and they still won't commit to getting it for me. I've already had a couple of phone arguements and starting to feel jerked around. I'm debating whether to get my deposit back and try elsewhere, or give up and try for a decent deal when the 07's become plentiful. Does anyone think Acura will offer any kind of 07 rebates or does that only happen at model year end to clear out inventory? Thanks.

What dealership did you work with in Seattle? How are you enjoying it so far? And what color combination did you get? Thanks.

You're definitely being jerked around. How on Earth did they get you to commit to buying a car that they weren't even committed to getting for you???
"They saw you coming" would be an understatement. I think they saw you when you got out of bed that morning. Go get your money back. Don't bother waiting for the '07, either. You'd be crazy to do any business with that dealership again.

With pressure, as usual. The pitch is that there's very few cars left and if I really want one, then cut a deal and they'll go to work on it. They didn't want to do the work to secure and hold a car from another dealer if I wasn't serious. I was OK with that: I understand it's good business. I just didn't expect them to drag their feet after getting the deposit, especially knowing the $41,500 is a few hundred dollars more than the prices other people here have paid recently for their RL's, so it should be worth their while to make it happen. The only RL's left in New England are demo's and crappy colors, so I may be in the same boat wherever I go. It shouldn't be this aggrevating to spend $40k.

Your best bet is to do your own search for the car you want and contact that dealership directly. It'll eliminate the middle man [your dealership] and you'll get a much better deal, believe me. You'll just have to pay for transport from that dealership to you, which will probably be no more than $300 if it's coming from several states away.

I filled out a couple internet auto shopping forms that claim they'll send my requests to appropriate dealers and will respond. Unfortunately, the only dealer that emailed back is the internet slaes rep at the dealership I just away from.
I don't know where most New England, NY and NJ Acura dealers are located. Of the ones I found, only a small number show their current inventory. Can you give me some advice for searching for the car?
I was hoping to turn in the older Legend I'm driving as a trade in. This seems impractical to do with a long distance dealer, whom I doubt would commit until seeing the car, but then may not want it or try to undervalue it.
The original dealer left a message that, as per my reqest, they were refunding my deposit to my credit card and sending me a copy of the credit.
#814 of 1111 Acura purchase in NE

Just a note of appreciation to all who have posted there buying experiences. I have found the NE dealers to meet the price quoted from Radley Acura in VA. I have given a deposit in CT for a Carbon Grey/Taupe 2006 nontech with ipod music link and splashguards for $41,150. I was able to track down the colors I wanted by calling different dealers in my region. I did not find the local dealers that helpful in 'locating' the colors I wanted.

Are you going from VA to CT to pick it up, or having it delivered?
