I'm looking at leasing an 09 Base TSX and am getting very frustrated. Even though I live in DFW (TX) area where there are 4 Acura dealerships, there seem to be very few 09's left.
I just tried using the True Cars cost with one of the dealers who still has 4 of the 09's in stock. He told me that he will sell all 4 by the end of the month for more money, and wished me well in my endeavors elsewhere. Should I keep pumping this dealer, or move on?
Leasing gives me tired-head

If they are having an attitude like that, than I would move on. Its not worth it. There are plenty of other dealers who are willing to give you great service at a reasonable price.
Heck we don't want highway robbery, we just want decent service, respect.
I would think at this point a dealer would want to focus on moving as many cars as they can. Not by price. You would more than likely make a better profit by selling more than selling one at a higher price. You know it will sit for awhile. That is a BIG risk to be taking, even for an Acura. That is not good business either.
Also, you just don't know who will walk in your door, that has good ties with people. Meaning, word of mouth can be either good or bad for you. You don't always know who your dealing with. Our business has secret shoppers, where we get judged by our service technique. But, the goal is to put customers first, respect them. Trust me, you do all of this, you the rest will follow.
I'll even pay more, if the dealer offers top notch service and respect. I would!
That is peace of mind! Even if you did buy it from the dealer which offered low quality service and overall feel, then are you going to feel good about taking it back there, for problems, or speaking with anyone of them? Nope!
Move on, you may have to drive, but do a deal search and do a mass email quote for leases.

No problem, wculbert1. The only difference is that you want 12,000 miles per year instead of 15,000. Honda Finance's 12k residuals are 2% higher than its 15k resids for 36 month terms.

The Tech version's residual values are 3% lower than the base model's resids.

That doesn't seem like a good deal at all. Too much money down for that payment.
Only 10k miles? No deal there.

I am in NJ and received a lease offer on a 2010 base model TSX of:
$2200 total out of pocket
$375/month for 36 months/12,000 miles
This is the final bottom line, inclusive of all taxes and fees.
Sound good? Please let me know.
#1484 of 2481 2010 TSX lease question
Aug 13, 2009 (2:21 pm)
Just left the dealer, and I am thinking this over
2010 base TSX, 36 months, 15 k per year, no money out of pocket besides first months payment and $80 for 2-year tags
net cap 29199
residual (61%) 18373.20
money factor is .00243 (5.832%)
total sales tax is 2144.16 My local tax is 6.35% which means that I am paying tax on 33766.29 (which I thought was odd)
monthly payment of 465.05
I know this is too high. My last lease (Volvo) had a money factor of .0013. We have mid 700 credit ratings, and I can't understand the higher money factor.
You can play with the cap, residual, etc... but in the end it comes down to the mf.
Can you give some guidance as to why the high mf. I know Acura finance sets a baseline and the dealerships work from there, but I feel like this is a too high.

I am sure that is the Honda MF, I don't believe they allow their dealers to markup the MF That's the way Honda operates, high residual, high MF or low residual, low MF.

That's what I kind of thought too, but I called Acura finance thinking maybe I could get a better rate directly through the Acura Finance, as we leased a TL a few years back, and the rep told me that they set the mf rate, and the dealers take it from there. Pretty much like a middleman mark up. I just cant get why the mf is so high here.
Like I said Volvo was .0013 3.12%
Our Sequoia was .0016 3.9%
The difference between a 3.9 and a 5.8% is roughly $40 per month.
