Hi paigejake1. Do you know what this car's selling price is? That figure would be very helpful in determining how good a deal this is.

#2776 of 3020 2012 TL TEch New Lease/OFF a 09 TL Tech
Apr 23, 2012 (10:16 am)
Hi everyone, I got a 09 TL Tech with only 14,000 miles. My local dealer in the SF Bay Area has been calling me like crazy to go to the dealership and take advantage of getting into a new lease of a 2012 TL Tech since my current lease on the 09 is about to expire next month. The dealer has offered me to lease me a 2012 TL Tech for a similar payment that I have now, with No money down. I like my 09 and since it has a very low mileage, I was thinking to keep it. That is to buy it at the end of the lease next month. My pay off at the end of the lease will be around $23k. I have done some search and similar cars (09 TL Tech) with higher mileage (around 30K or 40K) are being offered for $26K and up. I really donít know if it will be a good idea to buy the car at the end of the lease. In the past I have not been able to negotiate directly with Acura. My last lease was on a 06 TL Tech and Acura refer me directly to negotiate pricing at my local dealership. Do you people think that buying this car at $23K with 14K miles is a good idea/deal? Does anyone know a way to negotiate the price directly with Acura instead of the local dealership? Thank you for all the responses.

I have the 09 AWD Tech with similar mileage but I own mine (financing). Interestingly, I received a letter from the dealer yesterday about a trade in because they are looking for specifically 9 2009 TL (Yeah right, i bet they sent this letter to all 2009 TL owners in their data base). Here is what they are going to do, buy the car from you for 24k, then put it on their lot for a listing price of 32-34K (easy money).
Here is what you do- either buy the car for the residual (maybe less than the residual)or if you have the new car itch, sell the car yourself for what KBB values it. With the proceeds, pay off Acura and pocket the profits-its that simple.

Thank you billyperksii for your response. I'll try to negotiate the price directly with Acura. I like my car and since it has a very low mileage (like yours) why not keep it. I'll be posting more info as soon as I get closer to finish the deal. And I was thinking exactly why you just posted: that the dealer will buy my car for the $24k and later on they will put it on their lot for a higher price. Best.

I was just offered the TL with Tech for 457 + TAX. Based on that I think they might have a few more dollars to drop but that is not a bad price.

I was able to lease a '12 TL AWD with Tech for $1,999 total down (includes first month's payment of $459) and $459 per month (tax included)...no other money out of pocket...lease is 36 months and 12k miles per year. This was in Feb. I think deals got even a little better since then. It doesn't say what your down payment is so it's hard to tell if it's a good deal.

I am considering buying this Tl SH-AWD Tech
Buying price I was able to negotiate was 38779.99
Lease on this they were saying 500(including tax) and 3000 down. With 52% residual. Can you share some of your numbers so that I am in a better situation to negotiate. I have never leased before, so don't know much.

my negotiated price was 37,692...there was 1500 dealer cash in feb so that got me down to that number...residual was 54%...money factor was .00094 i think.

Sorry when I posted about the offer $457 + TAX 36 Months TL with Tech, I did not note the following: ZERO down. I have been leasing cars for more than 15 years. NEVER one thin dime on downpayment or cap costs. Sign and drive only. It keeps things simple to me. There is no need ever to put anything down. I did not do anything yet.
