    Hello im in sort of a dilemma... im in the market for a tsx, now i was thinking of buying a CPO but most dealers want anywhere from $22,000 to $24,000 for it and thats not even out the door... these are all 04 models... now ive read some posts about people that bought these cars brand new for around $28,000 OTD... i mean i know that these cars hold there value well but we're talking about cars that are almost 3 years old and have anywhere from 22k to 35k miles on it... does these prices seem high or are these good prices, i mean can i work them down a little? I was thinking about something like $21,000 out the door. Is this wishfull thinking??? Should i go for a new one, if so how much is a good OTD price for a new one? Man im really confused, some help would greatly be appreciated.

    I feel the same way... An '04 should be around $20K, or the new one is a much better buy.. Whether you can get that price is another matter...

    The '04s came out on April 1st, 2003.. A lot of those cars will only have one year of warranty left... That alone would steer me to a new one..

    The TSX is a lot like the Accord.. The resale values are so high, that it only makes sense to buy a new one.

    well the thing is that now i was throwing some numbers around and i definitly cant afford a new one...its probably gonna be like 28,000 OTD for that one right?? possibly even more... i mean the difference isnt much but the max i can afford is probably like 22,000 OTD... and yes they would only have 1 more year of warranty left but the CPO adds 1 more year to it... im sure you all knew that...so do you guys think i could get a good deal on a tsx CPO for 22,000 OTD in like say 2-3 months??? also i read some where that these cars dont have a timing belt, they have a chain so you dont have to worry about changing it is this true? according to the salesman the tsx would problably cost me less to mantain that my current 99 V6 accord, does this sound truthful as well...
  • It is quite clear that the used value still too high. 3 years coming up soon and lease end values are $17000 for most 36 month, 45k mi leases. 22k used or 26k new. No brainer with amount of warranty and equipment and new car interest rates.
    used makes no sense to me.
  • hokiebird,

    Regarding the $27,750 deal for TSX w/Nav in northern VA, did you get this at Pohanka, and did this include destination? I understand T&T were extra. I've seen favorable reviews for Chevy Chase Acura, but Pohanka is closer. Thanks for any info.
  • Hi, some of the favorable reviews about Chevy Chase came from me. I live in Fairfax. I live and work 5-7 miles from Pohanka, they don't want to give a fair price and are somewhat arrogant. I got a good price at Chevy Chase, good engouh to take the Metro over to Maryland to buy the car.

    yeah but a new tsx isnt $26k, is it??? its more like 28k... how much can i expect to pay OTD price, i live in south florida
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,650
    You are correct.... after sales tax, etc... The TSX will likely be $28K..

    That still doesn't make the used one a good buy... Even if your heart is set on a TSX (also one of my favorites), sometimes it just doesn't make good fiscal sense to buy one... If the new one is out of your range, buying a three-year-old one, just because that is in your budget.. is probably not a good idea..

    Don't get me wrong.. It wouldn't be any sort of huge financial disaster.. It is just my opinion that the used TSXs aren't a good value at that price level..

  • Yeah, I bought this car at Pohanka in Chantilly. The price did include Dest and T&T were extra. Funny thing is we sold our old car at Carmax and as we browsed around we noticed they had a '04 for $26,500- Just $1g less than I paid for an '06- The TSX's are pretty much going for invoice or just a little over invoice.
  • I just bought a '06 TSX w/Navi for 27,750. I think the Navi is worth about $1500 so $26K for a TSX w/o Navi is do-able- Just work the salesman a little. Personally, $26K for an '04 is ridiculous. The extra amount for an '06 financed over 4 or 5 years will make about a $20 difference per/month, if that. But you'll make up the difference when you eventually sale the car.
  • Thanks for the info. I'll try and use it to my advantage when looking to make my purchase.

    Did they have yours on the lot, or have to order it?
  • Hi Hokiebird,
    Did the price $27,750.00 include the Processing fee??
    or was it 27750 + TTL + Processing fee.

    the dealer qouted me a much higher price on the tsx (28,400) and ttl+processing fee of 300 on top of that.

    thanks

    i was just wondering that myself... is that 27750 OTD price or before all the taxes and all of that??? And it wasnt 26k for an 04 its probably gonna be more like 22k-24k OTD
  • Can you tell me where you bought your car in the Bay Area? I'm looking for an '06 automatic w/o navi. I'm trying to figure out a decent price OTD. Also, did they have the car you wanted on the lot or was it a trade?
  • Bumping up my original post. Anyone purchase a TSX Auto w/Navi in the St. Louis area recently?
  • It looks like the average selling price of an '06 6m is cuurently somewhere between $25.5k and $27k. I am pretty sure that I am going to get aftermarket wheels from the dealer (okay or not recommended?).
    But what do you think I would expect to pay for TTL? I live in Charlotte.

    Thanks
  • I think you've answered it before, but not 100% sure where I saw it.
    What exactly is "residual"?

    Thanks
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,650
    When you lease a car, the residual is what the car is worth at the end of the lease.... It is typically expressed as a percentage of MSRP... though, on the lease contract, it will be spelled out as a specific dollar amount..

    The residual is equal to the option price, if you decide to buy the car at the end of lease term.

    Financially you'd be better off getting something other than the dealer supplied aftermarket wheels. You can get greater variety at a place like TireRack and you'd get to make some money on your old wheels if you want to sell them.
    You states' DMV can tell you the TTL rates.
