#2576 of 3086 2011 TL with Tech
Apr 09, 2011 (10:04 am)
Was hoping someone can help verify if this a good deal. I'm a little confused trying to calculate the final sale price with the lease information, which I've been reading about, but I still feel my calculations are off.
Lease in NJ:
2011 Acura TL with Tech - Front Wheel Drive
$460 a month after tax
$1800 for acquisition and document fees, which is their standard charges. Definitely understand their fees are a bit higher than other dealerships
Any info will help

Just ask the dealer for the sales price. Then compare that price to truecar.com
Also ask for the exact breakdown of the $1800, that seems way too much.
Acquisition fee is $595.
Dealer doc fee is BS, so try to lower that as much as possible.
Then look at your state's DMV website to see how much registration is.
And don't fall for the "that is our standard charge." Everything is up for negotiation. Talk to other dealers too.

thanks for the information and your help. i actually did request the sales price and waiting to hear back (they are closed today).
i also called another dealership around the area that didnt have any 2011 in stocks. they quoted me for a 2012, but said they wouldnt be able to go near that price.
i'll post back when they reply.

host say's no names. salesperson shouldnt matter though, they all report to the manager. ship may have saled though, i did my deal the day after the 2012s arrived so i think i benefited from that. its been almost a month, i bet most 2011s are gone but you can always try

Overall it was the best car buying/leasing experience I have ever had. I was in and out within an hour. Pick up the car today.
If anyone is interested, they had one more left on the lot. Silver with taupe interior.
Thanks to everyone who posts on here for the helpful information.

Your experience is very encouraging. I am local to this dealer also, have a 2008 Accord lease coming to an end and have my eye on the TL as a replacement. This was the first dealer I was going to visit and try to work out a deal with. It would be a huge plus if I could turn in the Honda to them, but I don't know if that's doable or not.
Congratulations, and enjoy the car!

If the Acura dealer is also a Honda dealer in or near the same locale, you can ask Honda Finance if they would let you work with the Acura dealer at lease end instead of the Honda dealer who originally leased you the Accord.
