Acura TSX Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • hdjcpahdjcpa Posts: 15
    I have only bought Honda Accords (all 4-dr sedans & 4 cyl) since 1984. They were all great vehicles and I got very reliable service from each of them and great resale value at then end of my ownerships. However, on July 31, 2009 I bought a 2010 TSX 4-cyl auto w/tech pkge (Instead of another accord). This TSX is the best car I have ever owned! The accords are nice, but the TSX is finished off so much nicer. The 4-cyl is plenty of power. The 4-cyl TSX w/tech comes with everything that the accord 6-cyl w/nav comes with, and much more. You have factory installed rear view camera, awesome stereo, memory seats, homelink (not avail in 4-cyl accord), and great instrumentation panel. However, to me, the 6 cyl is a waste of gas.

    Hope this helps.

    I just purchased a new 2010 TSX w/Tech Blk/Par. I also own a 2007 TLS which I also purchased new. Acura is a world of difference from Honda. Period. They ride like glass but Acura's use Premium Fuel... just something to consider. Acura is excellent in every way including their Service experience and free loaner car. My wife and I both work so the free loaner is a huge sell for us. Service is a bit more than a Honda but this is a premium luxury vehicle. If you want to be like everybody else by a Honda. If you want to be different by an Acura. The styling is next to none. Very cutting edge and they hold their value. Honestly their isn't many on the road either. I have been very happy with both so far. With minimal problems. So far 0 problems with the TSX and 1,400 miles thus far. The TLS had some squeaks and rattles and other warrantly issues. Remember the TSX is made in Japan 100% unlike the TL is made/assembled in Ohio.
  • I have a Accord on the Table for $30,000 out the door with 1.9% APR in NC (that comes to $500 under invocie for a brand new 2010 model) or I am thinking of getting a Acura TSX w/ Tech for ????????? What is the best price anyone has seen or is getting in Va beach area? And is it worth to pay 2k more for an Acura version?
  • Don't buy the Accord. I had a 2008 Accord V6 and hated it. I finally traded it in on a 209 TSX. Smart move. Honda has gone in the wrong direction with the Accord, and I have owned several 6 cyl models. Stay with the TSX and ditch the thought about the Accord. You will be so sorry going with the Accord.
  • I have a local dealer in Ohio quoting TSX V6 base for $31,500 + tax / tags. How does this fare for a non-tech? Was also looking at Accord V6, but wanted something a bit different.
  • I have one dealership in the Atlanta area offering me 2010 TSX Tech blk/blk for 30,500(includes destinition) +TTL w/ free Lifetime powertrain warrenty. When I told the other dealership that I wanted the powertrain warrenty, they gave me an offer of 30,000+TTL. I'm stuck on what I want to do. Any suggestions?
  • Hey syb2010, the 30k with TTL included or not?
  • So I've decided to either buy or lease a new 2010 TSX (base/V4). Here are the 2 initial deals I have on the table.. just wondering if I can do any better:

    36 mo, 12k mi/yr
    total cap cost $28,519
    0 cap cost reduction
    $2126.61 (+ DMV fees) due at signing, which includes $595 acq. fee and taxes up front (NY @ 8.625%)
    $360.61 total monthly payment
    money factor .00168
    residual 61%

    BUY price: $28,519 @ 2.9% APR
    with $6k down this would be $450/mo for 60 mo. incl. taxes

    What should I do, and how much better of a deal can I possibly get? I appreciate any input. Thanks!
  • @cargirl31, is that buy price OTD?
  • no that's before NY tax, but the $450 monthly payment and $6k down takes all this into account. total cost after 5 years with financing and taxes is $33k in this case
  • So I'm looking into purchasing a certified used 2009 TSX. Shopping around I've found 2 dealerships that have mileage from 6,000-10,000 and prices ranging ~$26,999. I've read different links on the website on purchasing a used car. First, since it's used I figure I should have some range to puchase-how low should I start off? invoice on a new is about $26,800-if I start at $20,000 is that too low? (i have looked at TMV) I only want to finance 20,000 when it comes down to everything.(or LESS) Second, should I just buy new? If someone says yes then I guess I'm back to the drawing board!! Thanks for the help.
  • I am currently torn between the Acura TSX (4L) w/ tech and infiniti g37x. I don't care much if the car is a V4 or V6 so that is out of the equation. One of the big things for me is the car's sound system.

    How does the TSX ELS sound system stack up against infiniti's bose sound system?
  • The TSX sound system is very impressive. I do not know about the G37's, but with a Bose, and it being the G37, I'm sure it's very good, too. Here's the real question--why in the world would you NOT get the G37 and opt for the TSX? Are you looking at a base G37 with no leather or tech or premiums? I would not hesitate to get the G37, unless you must have over 30mpg. Can I have your G37? We like our 2010 TSX 4cyl with tech, but a G37 all wheel drive... mmmm....
  • The Acura is cheaper.. but yes, the g37 AWD is something I definitely want, however it may be out of my price range and RWD is definitely not an option.

    I need more money!
  • How is the ipod integration? Can it play apple lossless files and/or flac files off of a flash drive?
  • so i have better offers now. again, it's for a 2010 base TSX I4.
    $27,900 purchase price or $349/mo lease, $2k down to cover up front taxes and fees, 12k miles, 36 months.

    How much more can I get away with if I go into the dealer with a firm buy offer, or what would be the best price I can expect to actually get?

    I'm still torn on the buy vs. lease thing though. How do you all feel about having this car long-term (meaning 5+ years)? How well do you think the value of this particular model will hold up? Historically they've done well, but it seems that so many people are iffy on the new design Acura has opted for on all it's models. If this changes again in a few years, will it be a disadvantage to own one in this design? I personally like it, but aesthetics is all a matter of opinion.
  • Have an offer on the table for a 2010 TSX with tech package for $29,185 + freight ($810), taxes and tags. Although a good price, this was the dealers first offer to me so I can assume there is room for negotiating, but should I ask for lower price or accessories?
  • I've been lurking here for a while, there's a ton of great info here, figured that I should share... I just picked up the TSX v6 with tech for $33,500 (inc destination) at a Central NJ dealer. Thanks to the edmunds TMV and the $2000 incentive, the negotiations were pretty stress-free.
  • I just picked up my base 2010 TSX for $27k even, incl. destination. I also got the protective pack for $250. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!
