    Not sure about the Acura (seems fair), but I would think you might be able to knock down the price of that G35 some more.. Especially a demo unit with 5K miles...

    But, in either case, I'd go with whichever car you like the best. You've picked two pretty nice cars.. I doubt operating costs will be a large variable over time, even though the G35 will eat a little more gas.. The TSX may do a little better on the depreciation side, but if you keep your cars for 4 years or more, it likely won't make any difference..

    Really... between these two? Pick the one you like the best and bargain hard to get the price down. Don't be shy about letting the dealer know that you have other options.

  • Noticed that there is there is $1000 in marketing support for the TSX until 2-5-07. Will this effect the price we should get from a dealer and/or was it already in effect?

    I don't know if the prices you've been offered are fair or not - I am looking at getting a 2007 Acura TSX w/nav so haven't tried to get a price on a non navi. I did own a 2004 G35 and also really liked the way it drove, but it had a few drawbacks, one of which was that the foot rest for left foot was too far forward to work for me. More important though was that the brakes wore out very quickly. Mine started squeaking after 5,000 miles and the rear brakes had to be replaced at 7,000 miles. Lots of people had reported brake wear issues on the G35 forum, but I didn't pay attention to them because I liked the driving experience so much. Eventually, Infiniti sent a letter to all G35 owners that indicated that we would be given free brake replacements for 3 years or 36,000 miles. I got rid of the car at that point (also, the transmission was making a clunking noise sometimes when I was on the highway going about 45-50 mph). I didn't want to have to replace brakes every 7,000 - 10,000 miles after the 36,000 or 3 yr. period ended. I never had to replace brakes on any of my previous vehicles until at least 50,000 miles. Maybe Infiniti has solved the brake issue by now since that was 3 years ago that I had my car.
    So far I haven't seen anything negative on the Acura TSX forum so I feel good about choosing the Acura. Good luck with whatever car you decided to buy.

    Thanks for your input. G35 was very nice and drive was almost euphoric, but the lower cost of ownership on TSX won over G35 at the end. Everything from brake changes to oil changes were higher with G35 than TSX. I bought the 2007 TSX non-navi auto in Glacier Blue with Ebony leather interior. OTD price was $26,000 (purchase price $26,995, plus tax & fees, and then $3,000 down with no trade-in). This wasn't the lowest price, but this was the only glacier blue within 75 miles. Lowest price offered from another dealer was $26,695 plus tax on a Carbon Gray, but I guess $300 was worth the trouble for the color alone. So far loving the car, color is simply beautiful and bluetooth is so cool. TSX may not be the track star that G35 is, but sure feels surefooted and like a sharp razor around the corners. Not bad fopr a FWD car.

    Anyone out there shopping for the TSX in the Puget Sound area? I've got an offer for $27,552 + tax and fees and trying to figure out if I can do better. It seems high to me, but I hear the competition is tough up here.

    Perhaps I should buy elsewhere and then drive it back here? Say California or Oregon?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi, anybody recently purchased a 2007 TSX in washington DC area? I am thinking about buying one without Navi, I send out the purchase request for three dealers, but did not get much price quote.

    Thanks.
  • Does anyone have any insight on the current advertised lease for the 07 TSX? I've never leased before and am wondering if it's a good deal? I don't drive much, so I was wondering if this is a good option for me.

    Thanks.
  • That's the exact same price i got from mission viejo acura. Tustin acura said they would beat it but don't have the "royal/parchment" color combo I want.

    Radley will likely be your bets bet price wise.

    I guess they extended the support - it was supposed to end at the end of 06. But that is only on the 06 models.
  • I called and support is on 06 models only. All they have on 07 are lease options.
  • I walked into Tischer Acura in Laurel, Maryland and purchased a new 2006 Carbon Grey/Ebony AT non-Navi TSX on 1/15/07. Car had 14 miles on it. I got the car for 26,601.00 OTR (on the road). Just to make this clear and avoid confusion - this price includes car invoice, freight/destination, dealer processing, 5% Maryland taxes, and tags.

    Scott White was my salesman and he was great. Perhaps the most knowledgeable car salesman I have ever dealt with. Very pleasant, not pushy at all. Genuine. Class Act. I highly recommend him. I was told that they only have 5 more 2006s on hand. Hurry up and get one at a great price.

    Purchased 2006 TSX Base model for 24,215 (incl destination). Several dealers were in the 24,2xx range. Inventory looks like it is getting very low. At this price their selling pretty well.

    Hope this helps

    All I can say is WOW. There must be something in it for the dealers if they're willing to sell at a loss.
  • Can I ask which dealerships you had priced it at? I can't find any in my area which are anywhere near that price.

    Thanks.

    Try Sussman, Davis and Ocean

    Do the internet email thing as it works pretty well. I think KBB.com let you send to 3 or 4 at one time.
  • $28,629 for 2007 TSX with Nav. Is this a good deal? They say it is only $500 over invoice. Seems like a good deal to me. Any opinions?
  • I was just offered a brand new 2006 TSX Navi for 27K + TTL in Texas, not sure how list compares to the '07 or features but thought I'd mention it.

    Also, anyone get any good deals in TX? Looking for a new '06 TSX don't care about Navi. If I can't get a new, I'll take a few thousand off and get a pre-owned.
