    Checked dealers today on the 2009 TSX. They want MSRP for new customers and $500 off MSRP for existing customers.

    I would like to buy one, but I'll wait for availability to get better (and discounts to increase).

    Here's all the info I got on the lease....

    Residual = .56
    Rate = .0025

    MSRP = $28,960
    Invoice = $26,630
    Price = $25,130

    Total first month = $345 (first month) + $808.83 (tax) + $99 (govt fees) +$595 (acquisition fee).

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    All of the incentives are listed here at Edmunds.

    Honda never does customer cash rebates - it's always cash to the dealer. Your job is to know that and have the dealer give it to you.

    It's sad to know that some folks paid $1500 more for a Navi model on 4/30 than they could have the next day. :cry:

    I spoke with a different dealer yesterday. There is a $1,000 dealer holdback on the 2008 TSX with Navi. This is in addition to the marketing support.

    Any one know the holdback for an '09?

    The dealer is charging about 25 basis points (.24) over the going lease rate. That is not unusual at all. That costs you about 5 bucks a month.

    I come out with $350.94 a month with those numbers (not including any taxes).

    Acura had been doing a much lower interest rate of .00071 (1.7%) in March earlier this year with the same residual. But they were not offering the marketing support on the purchase price. The payment in March would have been around $320. My guess is they do not have that many 2008 models left and they cut back on the lease support in favor of the marketing support.

    Leasing tends to be not as good of a deal at the end of a model.

    Based on the current Acura leasing numbers, you won't get a substantially better deal than what you are being offered.

    The holdback is 3% of sticker (true of virtually every car) and dealers would have to be pretty desperate to give up any of it. They might be willing to go down to invoice but dipping into holdback is rare.
  • Top Notch team at Crown Acura in Richmond. I got a good deal and Crown Acura doesn't make you sacrifice on customer service like others do. Here's how my experience was...

    I have been considering an Acura purchase for approximately three years now. On April 18, 2008, I finally decided to do just that. I have nothing but nice things to say about my salesperson (can't name him here per edmunds agreement initials A.P.). He was an excellent salesman and really made sure that I was comfortable. He gave me the deal that I wanted and I walked away with a brand new 2008 TSX. I researched edmunds true market value which provides dealer's invoice and what others are paying. It is a purchase that I am very proud of. Management team was wonderful too. At the time of the purchase, I decided to add a few accessories, such as splash guards, moonroof visor, and a spoiler. We scheduled a service appointment and A.P. took care of all that for me. A very important matter came up for the Saturday appointment and I called the service department to reschedule and it was not a problem at all. They took care of the rescheduling and the gentleman with whom I spoke was very courteous. One of the best things about the service department is not only the courteousness, but the hours as well. I am an auditor, so I travel quite a bit. Some days I work grueling hours, so the fact that they open at 6:30 really helps out as well. It is easy for me to drop off my car and go on to the office with ease. When I arrived the morning of my service visit, the doors were open at exactly 6:30. One of the employees in that department came out greeted me, ask me my name, and knew instantly what I had brought my car in for. He gave me a courtesy loaner car to drive and sent me on my way in less than 20 minutes. Overall, my experience has been most excellent with Crown Acura. It has been such a good experience, I have shared it with other friends and colleagues that are in the market for a new vehicle. If my continued service and sales experience is this stellar, then Crown Acura will have my business for a very long time.

    I would never consider battling the traffic by driving to Northern Virginia to buy an Acura after buying from Crown in Richmond. I live in Richmond and got a good deal and Top Notch Service as well!!! For the first time I can say I am proud of my car purchase.

    I walked into Sierra Acura in Alhambra, CA this morning and was kindly assisted by their Internet Sales Department. The 2008 TSX base models are extremely scarce. I emailed over eight Acura dealerships in the LA/OC/IE area and some had at most two left, while others had none. This dealership had a Silver and Artic Blue Pearl color available, but none of the Carbon Gray Pearl color I had wanted. I was told the Carbon Gray Pearl color was sold out over a month ago and that it would be extremely rare to find that model/color at any dealership. I ended up purchasing the Silver. While I was completing my sale paperwork, multiple buyers inquired about the car that was just to me. I think I received a good deal and wanted to share it with all those who have contributed to this informative forum.

    Vehicle Cost: 25,329
    Doc Fee: 55
    Sales Tax (LA County 8.25%): 2,094.18
    License: 164
    Registration: 64
    Tire: 8.75
    *TOTAL OTD: 27,714.93

    Down payment 15,000
    Financed 12714.93 at 2.9% (Memorial Weekend Special Rate) for 36 months
    Finance Charge (split between 36 months): 592.47
    Monthly Payments: 369.65

    One free complimentary oil change and mud guard to be added at no cost.

    Hope this helps someone. Good luck to those who are still researching a purchase.

    Got an 08 las week with Nav and pro package in a dealer swap. Paid 28,400 OTD(6.75% tax + 250 doc fee0 with a beater trader in. Didn't have a very pleasant experience and wish I had a choice of better dealer. Just wanting to see if this was decent deal, didn't shop around much since there are not a whole lot of them available. Just wondering if I did ok on the pricing...
  • Was the deal guy for my gf - sticker was 29700 after dealer accesories(Mud gaurds, wheel locks, trunk tray). Did it all over the internet - knew that there was a 1k factory cash - in and out with 25k flat plus tt and license - out the door price 27,134. Very limited supply now - all the reviews say tghe 08 is better than the 09 :)
  • hey abt 1300 and some change for the extended warranty - i got ours for 25k flat - and the dealer needed verifciation of the email twice.

    Hi,
    I tried to email all of the nearby dealers for the internet quote but every one asked me to call them and didn't want to quote via email. Did you bring in any quote to them? I am living near Alhambra and would like to check it out there. Thanks.
  • just let them know you wont come in until price is negotiated, that usually works. I also am in LA where there are liek 3 or 4 dealers in a 15 mile drive.

    Checked out a place in the GTA called Performance Cars and gave me a better quote for a new TSX than any of the other dealers I was looking at.

    I test drove one last night and I gotta say I loved it.

    Sticker price was 29,675

    I checked the TMV on this site and it's somewhere around 29,400. Is that really the best deal people are getting? The invoice is around 27,300

    What can I expect to get this car for?
  • biker4biker4 Posts: 746
    Two things working against you for a better price - brand new model and high gas prices. The newness will wear off by the end of the year but continued high gas prices will keep all good mileage cars in demand. I don't think demand will soften enough to lower prices any time soon.
  • hipreckhipreck Posts: 64
    Agreed with the previous post.

    I bought an 09 TSX for 700 off MSRP three weeks ago. The dealer has not been able to keep a selection in stock and they are remaining very firm.

    My wife got 28.5 MPG in mixed commuting, better than the 25 MPG her Mazda 6 got. Very impressive for a new car. With gas prices where they are, Acura will have no trouble selling these, they are one of the only luxury 4s out there. Excellent car, we love it.

    I have been tracking other forums and some people have got the 2009 TSX for around 3% over invoice .

    Specific areas include California, NC & GA

    I am hoping this spreads to the rest of the country soon :)

    Last Thursday, I bought 09 TSX with Tech Package, Silver with Black for 31,000 plus tax, no trade-in. In Indiana and worked a deal after another dealer would only take 500 off MSRP.

    I love this car! Fun to drive and better gas mileage than my Murano (03 with 127,000 miles that I still have and continue to use and love.)

    I was in a position to tell the dealer what I wanted and the deals I was being offered by Infiniti (G37) and Honda (Accord Coupe). They knew I was going to buy something soon so they worked to get me a fair price and decent financing.

    Good luck to all those looking to buy!

    Thats awesome cause 31,000 for a tech means its just 600 over invoice

    Thats really good.
