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)?

1. I've got a TSX tech in January for $400 per month with all fees included in monthly payments. You should be able to do as good or better now. My lease is 12K miles per year, 15K were +$6.
2. It depends. For me the tech package does worth the additional $45. You get a functional, but for sure, not the best navigation system, a backup camera (my wife really wanted it) and a decent sound system.

Thanks! They threw in free oil changes and tire rotation for the entire least term and we closed the deal today. Another dealer wanted $60/mo. more and no maintenance. It pays to shop around.

Good for you! Did you put any money down or is the $404 inclusive of all the fees?
I'm in Southern California and I was quoted the following w/no money down:
2013 TSX Base: $408/month (inclusive of estimated tax and fees)
2013 TSX w/Tech: $468/month (inclusive of estimated tax and fees)
Both for 10k/36 months.
I'm trying to shop around to see if I can get a better deal.

The tech package is not worth the extra $45 a month which is why I ended up getting the base model instead. I also looked at the tech package when I was at the dealership and the few extra features was not worth it. The sound system also sounded identical to the base. I leased mine for $279/mo including taxes for 36mo/12kyr with $2000 total out of pocket. I believe the dealer used the $2000 for down and paid for my registration,title, and other fees.

Including the tax, $381 for 36 mos./15K for the base TSX, plus oil changes and tire rotations for the lease term. I only paid 1st mo. and registration, before driving it home. Fees were rolled into the lease. The other dealer wanted $60/mo. more and no service, and that was the dealer where I leased my last 5 Acuras. They used to offer the best price, but those days are over. So much for loyalty.

It sounds like we got similar good deals. The tech package was not worth the extra $$ for me either. I did notice a slight improvement in the sound quality, but the base stereo is good enough for me. I just turned up the base and subwoofer settings.
