yesterday i bought a great economical car Acura TSX. At first i went to look the new honda civic, but the lease was for ex only no leather or tech, and they were asking for $275 with $1900 down 36/30,000. Acura at Brooklyn locate Nostrand avenue were great. i bought TSX SE for $2000 total out pocket and $350 a month and Marty MGR was great. when Marty heard i was a Veteran he gave us coupons to make the deal. i also trade in 2006 VW passat, and VW is the most over rated car in the market. i think a person is better get old Fiat 124 than the PASSAT. i had negative equity on VW about $3000, Marty still made this deal happen.
the people were so great, that i also bought 2012 Acura MDX. i am a vet so i great a big discount on MB, i also own BMW so i get good discount. the X5 body never really change in 15 years. Also it isn't good in snow last year and i am not big fan of BMW interior. The Benz interior is classic but boring, and the drive was too soft. i found the Acura interior was cockpit of F16, and it handles great and the ride better both BMW or Benz. Marty took over last payment and $2500 out pocket i got 2012 Acura MDX TECH package, and best part Acura over Benz and BMW no option everything standard. the MDX feels faster than bought BMW and BMW
Acura is back Back

#2226 of 2432 Lease Offer Any Good??

I am looking to lease a 2012 base TSX, 15,000 miles/year.
Got the same offer from three Acura dealers in CT. All said $0 down is $370/month and with $3,000 down its $317 down. Is this good???

Is this including tax? Got the special edition for 368 a month including tax, 0 money down, 15K miles, so since your getting the base model, you can get it a little lower.

Tell them you've got past the 3rd grade in elementary school and know math basics. It is not clear if you are talking about 36 or 39 month lease. But regardless the term 3000/39=76.9 and 3000/36=83.3.
Even at 0% interest you shoul at least get $370-76.9 = $293.1 ($286.7 for 36 month lease) with $3,000 downpayment.
#2229 of 2432 Do you think I got a good deal?

Do you think I got a good deal? I leased a 2012 tsx w tech pack for 0 down 36mo 12k a year for $439 a month. Does this sound like a good deal?

$400> 410bucks a month seems clolser to a good deal. Why would ask for advice after the fact? Great car though. You will ove the stereo too!

well i haven't taken delivery of it yet so technically i can still say no. so would it be messed up to go back and say I want it for $400 a month. Also it was 439 after tax not before.

Actually after doing more research I found out its a good deal, i found out one of my friends works at the other acura dealership and he says the best he could do is take $5 bucks off payment bc the deal is basically all in.
#2233 of 2432 2009 TSX w/tech end of lease term - Options Questions
Dec 31, 2011 (4:35 pm)
Hi there. We have a 2009 Acura TSX tech with less than 9,000 miles on it (commute to Metro station a mile away). It is a 39 month lease term and our termination date is May 14, 2012. The Residual Value is $19,692. We are considering keeping the vehicle because, obviously, it's still like new. It seems like it would be worth more than the $19,692 at the end of the lease because of the mileage.
Does anyone know if Acura will finance the $19,692 for us if we choose to keep it, or do we have to use an outside loan company/bank to finance it as a used vehicle? How exactly does it work if you don't want to pull $20 K from your investments? Really not familiar on the way lease terminations work.
Also, our Acura Financial statement says that they cannot give a payoff for another calendar date because "The Payoff Calendar cannot be used for this account. You may have an Illinois payoff sales tax credit available to you. If you are in the last six months of your Lease please contact the Lease Maturity Center at 1-800-708-6555, otherwise please call your branch at 1-800-542-6632 to obtain your payoff quote."
Does anyone in Illinois know if a payoff sales tax credit applies to leases? My guess is no. Yes, we will call AFS, but no humans are there until Monday, so I figured I try here just in case someone knew.)
Thanks in advance.
