I just came from my local Acura dealer (Rallye Acura, roslyn NY)
I pretty much was looking for the same car. 07 RL with Tech package and spoilers and wood know/wheel, ipod link, all seaon mats. 12K miles. I told him I would prob lease.
The guy gave me some of the worst pricing I think I've ever heard. He said the car was approx 56K with everything...
offered me a lease for 42 months, nothing down, taxes/everything into the lease payment, $949 per month.
Seems CRAZY, looking for another dealer ship... What do you think the invoice should be on that car???

Invoice is about $6000 below MSRP regardless of trim level.

$949 / month lease sounds like an excellent deal.......for 2 '07 RLs!
#872 of 1110 05 RL - Is this a good deal?
Jan 21, 2007 (6:36 pm)
Not sure if this is the right forum, so apologize if it's not.
Local independent car lot (good reputation) has a 2005 RL with 22K miles, clean CarFax report, excellent condition.
Priced at $35K. Titled in Oct. 04, so warranty will expire at 50K miles or in Oct. 08. I put about 15K a year on car.
I have NEVER bought pre-owned before (and I'm no spring chicken!), so am a bit nervous.
Does this scream bad deal or should I consider it?

Not sure on the current market value of a used '05, but just a few months ago, brand-new '06 models were selling for around $41K..
Given that... $35K sounds a little steep for an '05 model that is already over two years old.. You'll only have 21 months of warranty..

I'd agree that $35K is a lot for a 2+ year old RL. Also consider that the build date is toward the very beginning of the first model year. In general that means trouble...
If there are any more '06s out there anywhere, you'd be better off buying new. Got my '06 with Tech package last month at dead cost (invoice less $4000 incentive less $1600 holdback). Turned out to be right around $11,500 under MSRP. By summer there should be substantial incentives on the '07s if you are not in a hurry.
Note that the '06 and '07 models have a 6 year/70K mile powertrain warranty in addition to the 4 year/50K bumper-to-bumper. SH-AWD is covered under the longer warranty.

I saw the new 07 RL Lease commercial last night. Once they start the lease deals then the so-called "demand" is no longer existent. I figure, or hope, some incentives will be coming soon. It seems like whenever a new model year comes out the dealers superficially inflate the demand...

From memory.. that deal on the commercial wasn't all that great....
$599/mo. sounds good... but, 42 months.. and I think $3000 due at signing?

I don't think $599/mo. is all that great on this car for a lease.
