When I lease mind in May 2012. I paid $1,287 out of pocket at signing and $295+tax for 35 months after that and got 15,000 miles a years for 36 months lease. Hopefully this help.

Was quoted the following for a TSX base:
12,000 miles per year
$556.84 due at signing (consists of 1st payment and title/registration fees)
$392.84 monthly payment for remaining 35 payments
$0 due at signing (sign and drive lease)
$404.68 monthly payment (you will only make 35 total payments)
Residual for 12,000 miles per year – 60% which equates to residual value of $18,843
Residual for 10,000 miles per year – 61% which equates to residual value of $18,157.05
Money factor for lease with first payment and title/registration fees due at signing - .00082
Money factor for sign and drive lease - .00072
If you wanted a TSX with the Technology Package, the payment would be about $60 more than a TSX without the Technology Package.
Offer Price $28,300
Wisconsin Title/Registration Fees
Other Wisconsin DMV Fees
Vehicle registration: $75.00
Security interest (lien): $10.00
Counter service fee: $5.00
Tax & Total
State Sales Tax $1,415.00
Thoughts? I do expect a money factor issue as I'm still recovering from a credit hit due to a short sale of my home for a job relocation. But, that's my worry as long as the numbers are OK.

I was not looking to buy a new car, but my 2003 BMW 325i has an oil sludge problem that has resulted in it not getting enough oil pressure, so it just stops. The mechanic said they can try to clean it for $1000, but there is no guarantee of how long it will work. So, either spend $1000 on what will definitely be a temporary fix to a non-fixable problem, or off to get a new car. I went to the Acura dealership in Ocala, Florida, and I was offered a lease with the following terms:
Trade in my BMW (rough trade in is $4600, so maybe worth a little less since it wont run?)
0 due at signing
$280 plus tax for total of $296.80 per month for 36 months
12k per year
I dont know if this is good or not because of the condition of my car (which i was honest with them about). Please advise. Thanks.

I forgot to include in the post above that it is a 2012 base model that i was looking at.

Received an offer to lease a 2012 Acura TSX (base model) for $2500 down, 12K, $299/month (includes taxes) and was wondering if this is a good deal. Thanks in advance- this is my first lease experience.
#2391 of 2436 2012 TSX wagon lease
Nov 22, 2012 (11:29 am)
I'm trading in and will come out ahead about $3000, so putting that into the lease on a 2012 Sportwagon with the tech package, 15k miles/year, 36 mos I was quoted $499 a month. Is that a good price? Thanks for any help!
And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Does not look like it is. Here is what I suggest you do.
1. You have $3,000 in your trade. Tell them to cut you a check for $3,000. This is your money and should NOT be used for downpayment of any kind.
2. Tell them that you would like to pay $425 per month with all fees and taxes included in the monthly payment.
2. $425 is a very good deal but $430-440 are reasonable too. Once again - ALL fees and taxes included in thos amount.
#2393 of 2436 2012 TSX Sport Wagon w/Tech
Dec 18, 2012 (11:46 am)
Car_man: I am in negotiations with a dealer for a new 2012 TSX Wagon with Tech. MSRP is $36,800. I have been offered a price of $32,978 (their first offer). That is nearly $4,000 off MSRP (including the $1,000 dealer cash), which I think is pretty good. I just want to make sure they don't try to make it back on me with financing.
I have done a little research and tried to find money factor and residuals, but have only been able to find them for November, or for the 2013's, or for the sedan. The dealer assured me that he can lease this car, and that the "rates" are better than they are on the 2013's. I've found 0.00011 and 52% for the Sedan for November. I'm looking at 15,000/year, with nothing down. I'll pay TTL and acquisition out of pocket. Lease tax in PA is 10%.
What should the monthly payment be for these parameters?
Are these good money factor and residuals for Dec, or have the rates changed/are they different for the wagon?
If I was at or below $450/mo, I could probably live with it. Thanks so much for your assistance.
I'd love to close this deal by Friday and have this car for the holidays. Another dealer quoted me $31,613 for a 2012 TSX Sedan w/Tech, for a payment of $480/mo (TTL/Acqisition in). MSRP was $34,005. I don't think that's a very good deal at all, either price or the lease deal.

Hi rmpierce1. A $4,000 discount is a very good selling price for a 2012 TSX. There's actually a total of $1,000 dealer cash on it right now ($1,000 of that is hidden and most people don't know about) so you're probably right at around dealer invoice minus incentives.
Acura's December buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 TSX Wagon Tech with 15,000 miles per year are .00082 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
Using the prices that you mentioned in your post, an MSRP of $36,800 and a selling price of $32,978, and the above lease program, I estimate that this car would have a zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around $388.

I was quoted 359/mo. + tax/15K/36 mo. sign and drive on 2013 TSX base lease.
I would like to lease a 2013 TSX w/Tech. Sales Manager told me it costs 45/mo. + tax more. That would be 404/mo. + tax. Is the Tech package worth the extra cost (1620 over lease term)?
