Acura TSX, Car Leasing, Sedan

can you help with an offer evaluation for a 2013 TSX Base lease and let me know if this is a good deal:
Initial Cap: 28.5k
Delivery & Handling: $470
Cap reduction $625
Total Capitalized Cost 28,900
Pmt: 302 before tax
1st payment upfront included in $1k upfront costs
MF is spot on with the forum at .00046 as is resid 60%. Dealer is telling me this offer is $1500 under their invoice of $30k (28,719+895 dest+400 advertising) and they cannot come any lower. I'd like to see them come down another $500. Comparatively, BMW and Volvo have some stellar leases out there (S60 & 320i) which meet/beat this deal's pricing, but are a brand improvement and neutral feature trade==>shouldn't Acura be more competitive than a luxury brand?

HA tifighter. I watch everything .
Acura's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 TSX Wagon with Tech and 15,000 miles per year are .00046 and 62% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00046 and 55%.
When negotiating your deal, make sure to take advantage of the $500 cash incentive that is available on this model.

Hi bzwerlin. The dealer invoice price of a base 2013 TSX Sedan is $29,614. If we subtract the $1,000 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of this car from that it drops to $28,614. This deal looks like it's a couple hundred dollars over invoice, not $1,500 under, but it's still a good deal.
I don't think that a Volvo necessarily should command a premium over an Acura, but a BMW certainly should. I would rather have a 3-Series than a TSX.

"I would rather have a 3-Series than a TSX."
Car_man- I totally agree with that statement, but only if add the phrase "as long as it (BMW) is under warranty!"

I agree. The three series is a totally different experience and a good one as long as you are under warranty! The TSX is a fine car but more Honda in experience which is not a bad thing for reliability etc. I think the TSX is a little "long in the tooth"

Thanks igozoomzoom and Car_Man. An extra set of eyes always helps. Drove the 320i base last weekend and I must say it drives fantastic. not sure we will go that road as ultimately we would flip to a finance and I don't want long term repairs on a bimmer to be sure. But it is great pressure on Acura in addition to your feedback on the pricing overall. I appreciate the feedback and insight of this community. Thanks all, will keep you posted.

BTW, last I read there was only a $500 incentive on the TSX. When did they roll out the $1k incentive on leases? is that posted anywhere?

Leased cars are usually under warranty. Note also that maintenance is included with BMW warranty, not so for an Acura. Acura maintenance will cost about $700-800 for the first three years. Which translates into $20-25 per month for a 36 month lease.

May 24, 2013 (1:14 pm)
I wanted to Lease a new 2013 Acura TSX with the tech package, and I'm not so sure the dealer is giving me a good deal.
Gross Cap Cost (His offer) $31,750
Cap reduction $679 (putting $2,000 down, but he is using the remainder on fees)
12k miles. Dealer says residual is 56%, I thought it should be higher, especially because of the tech package. He said Tech package makes the residual drop, not go up!
Money Factor .00046 (which according to him equals $23.18 per month) (seems really high)
6.5% tax rate equals $24.47 per month
Monthly Payment $373.99
Here are the fees he is charging me towards the $2,000 down.
1st payment: $373.99
Cap Reduction: $678.95
Sales Tax Up front: $96.57
1st year fees: $261.50
Dealer Fee: $589.00
Car_Man... Can you help! This seems pretty high for a lease! Thanks So Much!!!

The tech package adds next to nothing when it comes to resale - hence the bigger drop from original value on tech package equipped cars.
