Acura RSX Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • Generally, you can't "order" an RSX... But, the dealer can check around and try to trade for the car you want... Or, they should be able to search for what is in port, or scheduled to arrive, and reserve it for their dealership.. Most dealers won't trade with the local competition, however..

    All dealers would rather you buy a car that is on the lot, because no sale is final, until delivery takes place.. A bird in hand... so to speak..

    If you want a particular color, I'd try to stay in contact with them weekly, to let them know you are serious, and to keep them focused on the task.

  • I put $500 down so they would know I was pretty serious. However, I will take the advice and touch base every week. Thanks

    bought 06 rsx type s black on black this week.
    bought for edmunds TMV price (possibly could have gotten a little lower, but car has great resale value, great quality)
    no problems with salesperson, no added charges to contract, no f/i sales tactics. Acura of Dayton.
    don't have insurance cost yet (but I am "older" female so likely won't be too bad)

    It's a scream to drive! Bose audio is great. I traded Saab 9-3 (which was fun but not very reliable)and am having a blast.
  • IS IT POSSIBLE TO RETURN A LEASED VEHICLE AND NOT PAY ANYMORE MONEY ON THE CAR?
    SMS :blush:
  • I just checked up with the sales person about my car and he said that they had ordered the car directly from the manufacturer in Japan.

    From what he said they make the car (or there is one their already) send them the vin and deliver to the dealership. However, they said it might take a while if there are few requests for a peticular color, etc...

    I find it hard to believe that I'd be the only one to ask for jade metallic green w/ no extraneous options. Am I at the dealers mercy? I can always ask for my money back and go somewhere else if they don't deliver.
  • Hi mrstaters51. I am sorry to say that once you have signed all of the contracts and physically driven off of the lot in your leased vehicle you are basically stuck with it. It is almost always very expensive to get out of a lease before its scheduled end date. In order to get out of your lease now, you will have to buy your car from than bank that you are leasing it from and trade it in on something else or sell it on your own. You will likely lose a lot of money in the process. You will be much better off keeping your car until you are as close as possible to the scheduled end of your lease.

    I am in the process of buying a Black Pearl black cloth interior base model RSX automatic. How did I do?

    Invoice Price:
    $19,368
    MSRP:
    $21,225

    Price paid: $19,618 (invoice + $250)

    destination: $615

    Fee from acura to dealer: $200 (said charged to all dealers in AZ and included in his invoice price, not in mine above)

    tax (8.1%): $1655

    doc fee: $388

    misc AZ fees : $22

    Plates : $374

    Total: $22,872

    Do these fees seem normal to you? I'm hoping for someone in Arizona to get a local opinion on it. From what I've seen the doc fees here are outrageous so that one makes some sense. I don't mind the $200 fee from Acura, and I suppose plates/registration is that expensive in arizona too.

    Any opinions?
  • Hi all,

    I am in the process of buying a 2006 Acura RSX (Automatic with Leather Interiors + Rear Spoiler) Black Pearl. I spoke to a dealer and the best offer I got from his is $23000 including Taxes.
    Please advice if this is a good deal.

  • I'd relook the doc fee. In Washington it is legally written it can be no more than $35 according to the Dept. of Rev. Not sure about AZ. might check the web site. Good deal though.

    2 quick questions from a person who never leased a car:

    1. With the current promotion on the 2006 Acura RSX, the capitalized cost is $18,673.87. This is even below CarsDirect price of $19,963. It's close to invoice price of $18,549.

    Will the dealer laugh in my face if I ask to buy it at the capitalized cost? I mean from their point of view, its better for them to have my money up front and have the car gone right?

    2. Also, from the web site: Total monthly payments $7,884,00. Option to purchase at lease end $11,935.80. This means the total cost if you buy it at the end of your lease is 19819.80

    What am I missing here? This price is only $200 more than if I bought it today through cars direct? And with the lease, I have the option not to buy after 3 years if something cooler comes along [eg. 2007 RSX?? :)]

    I think you are leaving the "due at signing" money out of the equation.

    I'm not familiar with this particular program, but there is probably a Cap cost reduction ($1999? 2499?) and an acquisition fee to be paid upfront.

    Add that cap cost reduction back on to the Capitalized cost, and that should give you the selling price that they are using in this example.

    Hi lgid. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this car's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on this deal if you let me know what these numbers are. It also would be helpful if you would mention how long this lease is and how many miles per year it allows.

    Hey. About 4 years ago I test drove a 2002 RSX and I fell in love with them. In Nov. 05 I finally got one.

    2002
    black/black
    base model
    5 speed
    approx. $15.000 (canadian)

    About 2 weeks ago some punk-[non-permissible content removed] kid cut across 3 lanes to turn onto a side street and I T-Boned him. The cops showed up and charged that dumb-[non-permissible content removed] with reckless driving. The entire front-end of my RSX got smashed in. I got a call from my insurance company and they told me the car is a total write-off. The 2 front airbags alone cost approx. $8000 to replace. Now I gotta run around and waste my time looking for another car. :mad:

    You can be the best driver in the world and be driving the most beautiful car but some a**hole might come along and f**k things up.

    I LOVED MY RSX. :cry:

    Right now I'm looking at another one.
    2003
    silver/black
    base model
    5 speed
    leather
    sun-roof
    fully loaded
    approx. $21,000 (canadian)

    I guess I have a RSX fetish :shades:
