A lot of this depends on where you are. There's no way any informed consumer would ever pay $29K for a two year old used car when they can get a brand new one for virtually the same price. And private sales and dealer prices differ by at least 2-3K. In the DC area that car would sell for maybe 24K private party and maybe 27K at a dealer (regardless of what the asking price is).
My suggestion would be to buy the car if you like it. If not, turn it in, move on and not worry about what the dealer would make on it.

Of course no one would pay $29k for a $32k car when it's 3 years used. But I bet they might pay $26-27k for those low miles. So if it were me, I'd still try to sell it. Like I said I'm doing the same thing, and if I can't sell it myself, I'll trade it in to the dealer and make less--but I'll still make a few grand on the latter. I think the advice to just let the dealer have it is crazy. Either buy it and run it into the ground or buy it and sell it / trade it in. I'm starting down that road today.

First time leasing in Long Island interested in 2012 TSX. Got an offer for $259/mo for 36 months 12,000 miles/yr. They are asking for $3000 down which includes inception(tax and other fees). Is that a good deal?

I think. It's ok deal. I just lease mind on5/13/12.
15 K a year. 36 months.
Down $1287 including first month.
295 + tax for 35 payment.
You can ask to lower the down if you have an excellent credit.

So I go back 2 days later to sign papers and the dealer says the sticker price went up 500 bucks so now its 279/mo with 3400 down. Because the car is made after May its more so he offered me the same deal as original on a different color he had in stock. What a tool.

What a BS. They trying to move an unpopular color and insult your intelligence at the same time. Let's say the sticker went up $500. The residaul value is probably around 60%. Maximum they may want from you additionally is $200 (40%) / 36 = $5.55. They asking you to pay $400 + $20 per 36 month = $1,120. When thay happen to me such things make me really mad and I usually walk away.

I walked out and got a different offer from another dealer not as good. It was $275/mo 12k miles over 3 years. Total out of pocket $3400 (tax,1st mo and fees). Thats the best I could get out. What do you think?

I am in Southern Callifornia so they are a plenty dealer want to sell their car however everytime I go in. They always try to convince me that this is the best they can do...
If you are not hurry to go a car, just wait and call all the dealer around your area. You will get what you want.
In my case I got the quote from DCH in Tustin. He gave me $1,287 Due at signing and $299 a month (35 payments) for 15K a year for 36 months. They have the color I want but the not black interior. Saleman told me to get my second choice. He said I must go in by tomorrow to get that dea So I never call him back. Then I checked the stock online and call the dealer that I have the exactly one I want. I called them and said This is the quote I have and If you can do better. I would lease one right now. They called me back within 10 mins. I got the car the next morning. Love the car.
As I list before Here is what I got.
$1,287 Due at signing and $295 a month + tax (35 payments) for 15K a year for 36 months.
