#2445 of 2481 Taxes, Titles, and Fees
Jun 26, 2013 (8:02 am)
I'm in the process of contacting some Acura dealerships in NY (Westchester County) and wanted to know some basic information before I start my search.
According to the Acura website, there's currently a lease offer for a 2013 TSX Special Edition with the following terms:
$1,999 total due at signing* excluding taxes, title and fees
So here are my questions, how much can I expect to pay for those additional fees/taxes (ball park)? I just want a range, I don't need exact numbers.
My 2nd question is, where can I start my negotiations regarding this offer? I'm sure they are basing all these terms off MSRP and not invoice, do I start there?
This current lease offer is within my budget, but if I can squeeze more savings out of this deal, I want to.
Any info that can be shared is appreciated. Thanks.

These terms are not at all based on MSRP in any form. There would be no point in Acura offering a special lease deal for advertisements that was high. Rather these are pre-discounted aggressively to get to such a low number. A $32k MSRP luxury vehicle should not generally lease for mid $200's, but can here thanks to Acura residual values and great rates.
Depending on your state, the fees will be in addition. Here in PA, your tax on a lease is 6% state tax plus 3% lease use tax, for a total of 9% on the payment. So if your base payment was $269, with just tax you would be $293.21 and then also have tags/registration fees to pay for or incorporate as well.
These all vary based on your state, and are never included in special programs advertised because they vary greatly.
The Special Edition is $10 lower than the base right now because it's MSRP is really even higher than on the sticker (for leasing purposes the original $33905 MSRP is used, before the $1500 SE discount) due to the SE special value discount, with the same residual. GREAT deal right now.

I just leased a new TSX for a gross capitalized cost of 28,047 in NY.
with 1,000 down and all taxes and fess 303.00 a month. Did i get a good deal ?
I feel like i negotiated well. I sold my car to them (not traded it in so took 1,000 from that) in a separate deal so I left with it same day and no money out of pocket.

what are the July figures for a base wagon with 10K miles for three years?
How much do the numbers change for 12K miles or a 24 month lease?

Someone else mentioned this special but in my lease experience (just leased my 9th and 10th cars) I can always do better than the advertised specials the dealer is offering.
I took deliver of a TSX base wagon with $0 cap reduction at $30.9K sales price.
Lease is $334 pre-tax.
10k miles a year for 36 month.
I also leased a base TL at a sales price of $31.9K $1500 cap reduction paid by Acura for a $316. month pre-tax lease.
#2451 of 2481 Can you trade-in old car as part of lease down payment ?
Aug 05, 2013 (11:07 am)
This will be my first Acura and probably first time leasing vehicle. I've Honda Odyssey and based upon mileage and condition it looks more like $3000 in KBB value. Can I trade-in my Odyssey as a down payment for Acura TSX Wagon ? I'm more interested in getting Wagon and saw a $309 deal going on for TSX Wagon on Lease.
Can someone please help me or guide me with lease process ? I'm looking into getting 2013 Acura TSX Sport Wagon with base package. I'm in Upstate NY.

You can always trade in a car as a cap reduction on a lease but you may try getting an offer from car max first. That way you'll have a somewhat accurate value for your car in case the dealer low balls on your trade.
Also try negotiate the sales price on the car as if you were buying it to ensure the best deal.
#2453 of 2481 2013 Acura TSX Special Edition
Aug 05, 2013 (1:50 pm)
last saturday i took delivery of a 2013 TSX Special Edition 12k 36mth lease with only $800 to cover 1st month and some fees at $295 a month with 7% tax included. no down payment no bs. I think the selling price was $27.7k money factor was adding up to close to nothing. the salesman made me wait for him for an hour after i was done with the finance guy, i believe it was the frustration on my face that got me a free set of all weather mats after the wait. i think i did pretty good.

Thank you chuckjr for your help. I went to dealer and got quote of 34809 for TSX Sports Wagon with Tech Package. For my van dealer took whatever price was quoted on kbb.com i.e. $2500 for trade-in. My Van has 150,000 miles and pretty beaten up.
With Tax and including everything else I got quote of $408/pm for lease on 10K miles per annum on TSX Sport Wagon with Tech Package.
If I got with base TSX Sport Wagon the lease per month will be $353
I think I've some wiggle room here with dealer to get the price down little further as per TRUECAR no haggle price as well as from Consumerreports carbuying. I got price of $34143, so I think I could ask dealer to lower price and throw in extra 2K miles per annum so that way I get atleast 1K miles per month.
What do you guys think, is this good deal ?
Also salesman told me they will start getting 2014 TSX Sport Wagons starting in October sometime. I test drove the TSX Sport Wagon and loved the way it handles on road, it is not a super fast car but based upon size and price, it is great little car.
