87After the test rides, I just received lease offers on both cars, TL Tech lease (front wheel drive) and an RL with tech. The offer on the TL is as follows:

MSRP - $39,445

Customer discount - $1,495

Selling Price: $37,950

Tax (6.5%) $2,366.99

Tag/Reg $350

Dealerr Fee $599

Balance due $41,275

Lease terms are:

MF: .00165

Residual: 61%

Residual $: $24,061

Cap: $40,2033

Payment: $594 (tax incld) w/ $0 down, 36 mo/12K miles;

RL

MSRP: $50,660

Customer Discount $4,259

Selling Price: $46,400

Tax $2,874

Tag/Reg $350

Dealer Fee: $599

Balance due: $50,233

Terms

MF: .00119

Residual: 49%

Residual $: $24,823

Cap: $46,818

Payment: $745 (w/tax) with $0 down for 36 mo/12K miles

These were the first offers I received. I have not presented a counter.

The test drives were interesting. The 2009 RL feels quicker and sportier in handling then my current RL. It is also quieter then my 2005.

The TL felt quick and had seemed to have a stiffer suspension and tighter handling and cornering. The interior materials are much better then the prior model, IMHO.

However, the main obvious, to me anyway, difference between the two 2009 cars is the highway/wind noise. Acura really did a great job with the noise reduction in the RL. The TL felt fairly loud in comparison. Probably, like my 2005 RL before I switched the tires (which helped a lot). The RL also feels more substantial to me (whether this is good or bad is up to you).

Sorry for the long post. I know this went far beyond what you asked, but I thought I would set this stuff forth to see what my local Central Florida dealer is making so you can make a comparison.

44On the base TL I am at $459.72 (including 6.75% sales tax), 36 months, 10k per year with ZERO down. Residual % is 65%, money factor is .00197. I am still waiting for all the exact numbers. I have estimated a selling price of @ $33,607.

Does anyone have the invoice prices on the 2 models? I am showing $32,136 (base TL) and $35,556 (TL Tech). Are these correct?

DCH MontClair Acura (New Jersey) is advertising $299 per month with $1,999 due at signing (base TL) and $347 per month with $1,999 due at signing (TL Tech). Both are 36 months and 10k per year. At these rates I have estimated they are selling at below invoice.

I will keep you posted.

6I was just offered a 36 month lease on a base TL for $1,850 down (incl. 1st month's payment), $370 per month, 12k miles per year. What does everyone think of this deal? Thanks!

44Also - What happened at DCH Montclair? The deal they quoted you is not even close to what they are advertising?

506378Dealer wanted to go down lower on the selling price if I took delivery on the spot.

I would advise buyers to wait some more (around Spring) for prices to move closer to invoice.

50I'm in Ohio, and the tax here works differently than in most states, but at least I would be able to compare the other aspects of the deal.

The deal I'm being offered is invoice ($32,895) + $595 acquisition fee + 4950.86 up front tax. Total cap cost = $34,440.86. Residual for 36 month 12k miles/year (64%0 = $22,857.60. Money factor = .00197. Monthly payment = $434.64 with total due at signing $484.64 (1st month + 50 title & reg.).

Again if you could e-mail your details to merlion0821@(remove)hotmail.com, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

5448msrp: 39,445

adj cap cost: 34,798

residual: 62%

csh down (includes first month): 1999

monthly payment: 414 (not including taxes)

I have to decide today supposedly, to get this deal. Negotiated yesterday and have everything in writing. Could you guys please let me know what you think?

Reputable dealership in SCA. Seems like some people have gotten lower cash down deals. Thanks for your help!!!

8money factor .00165.

Thanks!

44378641. Does the terms of their lease mean I am paying a upfront acq fee of $1999-399-1005=$595?

2. Will the dealer accept my negotiated price with all other aspects of the lease? In other words, I figure their deal is a .001634 money factor, and I am ok with the $1999, and the residual seems ok too. So re-running with the lower sale price of around $32,296, I get a lease payment of $301.40. All without tax, license title, reg, doc fees, opts, ins, etc. Will the dealer go for that?

3. If they will, is that a good deal?

I am ready to make the deal tomorrow, if you wise folks tell me the skinny. Thanks to all for your help.

38,515I see that the lease that you described includes a $1,005 capitalized cost reduction. It actually would be in your best interest not to make any sort of down payment on your lease. Lessees who make cap cost reductions risk losing part or all of them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. Even though your monthly payment will be a little higher, you would be better off going with a zero down lease.

Acura is not providing any special cash incentives on this car that are not available with its special lease program, so I don't see why the price that you negotiated for a cash purchase of this car wouldn't be available if you leased it.

$500 under dealer invoice is a very attractive selling price for a 2009 Acura TL. Just make sure that the dealer uses its buy rate lease money factor to calculate your monthly payment and you're in business.

638,515Acura's special lease program on the 2009 TL is only available for a maximum of 39 months. It doesn't make sense to lease this car for longer than that because its 39 or 42 month money factors would be significantly higher.

2285378I just spoke to my dealer and they informed that the MF for January is .0025 or 6 %, is this correct? Last month it was .00165 or 3.96%.I thought things were bad for the Auto Industry, shouldnt they be looking to keep the rates competitive?

8From Island Acura

Wish I could say it was better....but it's not !! If we

structure it with only the Bank fee & 1st payment upfront,

the front-wheel - Tech would be 39 x 10,000 thru AHFC

and the payment would be $528 ! Plus....this program is

only offered till 2/2/09.....

Will keep you immediately informed if AHFC comes out

with any enhanced programs....Thanks...

1326Looking at a 36 or 39 month lease with 15k miles/yr.

Pulling the trigger soon on this deal, any help is appreciated.

38,515What it did do, however, is introduce new or higher lease cash on a number of models. This new cash is not enough to offset the worse lease program, but it helps. It is now providing a $500 cash incentive on leases of the base 2009 TL and $1,000 on the '09 TL Tech.

38,515Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 TL AWD Tech with 15,000 miles per year are .00250 and 56%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $1,000 dealer cash that is currently available on it.

38,515The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '09 TL Tech are .00250 and 57%. If you were to lease either of these cars for 39 months, their money factors would be the same, but their residual values would be 1% lower.

Acura is now providing $500 dealer cash on the '09 TL and $1,000 on the '09 TL Tech. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating the capitalized cost for your lease.
