#856 of 3086 Re: just leased a 2007 base TL (w/o Nav) last night... [thebrad]
Jul 27, 2007 (3:47 am)
I leased this month (July 07). I basically had all my info in front of me at the time of the negotiating: MSRP, Invoice price, etc. The 1st set of numbers they ran for me was not a great deal. Then, the sr. sales associate came over and asked what could be done to get me to leave that night with a TL. I told him $16K even for the total lease cost along with more cash for my trade in (1999 Avalon). I would definitely go back because they will work with you, especially if you tell them that you are serious about going home with an Acura. I could tell that they wanted to get the 2007 TL's off the lot because the 2008 TL's are already arriving. I don't know if they have a required monthly quota, but you may not be able to get as good of a deal if you wait until the beginning of August. Good luck.
#857 of 3086 2008 TL with Nav Lease Numbers??
Jul 28, 2007 (7:28 pm)
I could not find TMV info on the 2008 TL with Nav on Edmunds. I am located in Bucks County, PA 6% sales tax on purchase and 9% on lease. I am not good a buying cars. I am a salesman to boot. I get lost in the money factories and residual. Simply stated, I would like to lease a new 2008 TL with NAV..black on black. I will not put anything down on the vehicle except first month, tags and titles. Can you or anyone help me understand what a good deal would like like on a monthly payment for a 36 month with 12K miles per year with Top Tier 1 credit? Thank you.

I'm thinking about leasing a 2007 Acura TL w/Navi. This is my first car lease, and although I've done a decent amount of research so far, I would very much appreciate any input you could provide on this quote I received (in California).
Selling price: $31,307
Money factor: 0.003
36 months, 12K miles
$1500 drive-off, $459 + tax per month.
It seems like people have gotten better deals than this in recent months. Is that because I'm not getting a great quote, or is it simply a matter of lease rates having gone up?
#859 of 3086 2008 lease pricing?
Jul 28, 2007 (9:55 pm)
I was at the local Acura dealer and theyhad 08s on the lot.
I test drove a black TL-S automatic.. 2008. it drove very nice. it was very tight, handled awesome. I was NOT blown away with the power...it seemed fast..but not nearly as fast as the 335 i drove...but it shouldn't be.... it pulls nice to redline though. very nice car. it felt great.
i didn't talk pricing as i'm not ready to pull the trigger just yet. i need to do my homework.
what are you all seeing as the leasing deals on 08s?

Sayer17- the new 08's are out. i have had a hard time finding info on leases for the 08. I am looking for this info myself. if you lease, an 07 your residual will be much lower as you are already 1 year in the rears. if you lease, typically you want to lease the newer year model for better residual. make sense? i am with you on all of this. i am not an expert but that is what i am told.

23109vc, i am looking for this info as well. the TMV on edmunds does not show the 08 model yet. if you get this info, please let me know. i would like to lease an O8 with nothing down for 12K miles, 36 months, in bucks county, pa with tier 1 credit. i want to know what a god deal would look like.

I dont think your correct. The residual rate for a 07 or 08 I bet would be exactly the same (say 56%, 36 months, 12k). The amounts will be slightly different based on the msrp of the car.

Jul 30, 2007 (8:05 am)
CPA3..now that i think about it, you are right..midway through the year like this might have 07 and 08’s the same.
My point comes very true around October – December

i dont' think you are right.
the residual for an 07 should be LOWER than an 08. thinka bout it... when you try to resell it in 36 months, what's going to be worth more.. an 07 or an 08? an 08.
i haven't seen the residual info on the 08s...but i would bet the 08s have higher residuals. although if the dealer will discount an 07 more... you may have the two things wash each othe out..
who has been on a lot where they have both..and what deals did they offer?

i agree..that was my point to the other person..it is mid year so prob a wash..end of year 08 residual will definately be better...i would love to get some details on the 2008 models via invoice and lease numbers...nobody seems to have it...edmunds does not even have a TMV on it yet.
