    I would buy off the 2007 TSX for cash (my own or borrowed from a family memeber) and drive it till its wheels fall off or my credit is good again. And no, you do not have $6K equity in your car, $1-2K at best.

    Hi everyone,

    Looked at a TSX yesterday and am wondering what I should expect to get if their "lease special" online is listed as this:

    MSRP:* $35,010.00
    Lease Acquisition Fee: $595.00
    Capitalized Cost Reduction: $0.00
    Capitalized Cost *: $31,998.00
    Residual Value: $19,955.70
    Security Deposit: $0.00
    Monthly Payment: $341.61
    Lease Term: 36
    Mileage Allowance: 36,000
    Excess Mileage Fee: $0.20

    I'm considering going back and asking for the best they could do for 15k/36mo or maybe 15k/24mo. How does this standard offer look though?

    No. The promotion 's from Acura is not a good deal.
    I just my car on May 13, 2012 from Riverside CA Dealer.
    Here is what I got.
    TSX Base 2012 - Graphite Exterior/Ebony Interior
    15K mileages/year 36 month.
    MSRP 30,695
    56 % residual value 17,189.20 buy out
    .00046 money factor (Excellent FICO score).
    Due at signin $1,287.00 included first month.
    Payment $295+ Tax.
    At first I got 695 due at signing and $330+plus tax for 35 payment.I was calling around to get the color I want. I got a better deal.

    Good Luck to all.

    Seems to be a pretty good deal. I've added 7% tax (yours can be different), above-mentioned Acq Fee of $595, $220 for MV and $285 for doc fee and ended up with $391 per month payment with ALL fees and taxes included into monthly payments. I leased TSX tech sedan (MSRP $33,795) for $400 per month four month ago. You getting a more expensive vagon for less so is seems to be a good deal to me. I assume this deal is NOT from Acura FS. If it is then you should be able to do better.

    They came back with $329/mo for 15k/36mo. I get the impression it is an Acura FS deal because they may choose to waive the acq. fee if I qualify for the top credit.

    I'm looking into taxes right now.
  • This is my third Acura TSX Base Model. 36 Month. 15k/Yr. $400 Down. $360/month (includes tax). Steal of a deal I think. No other dealer in the LA area would sniff those numbers.
  • Hey Car Man.

    I am looking for the May numbers (MF, Residual %, incentives etc) on a 36 month lease with 12K miles per year for a 2012 TSX Sportwagon without the Tex Package.

    Thanks in advance.
  • Hi Guys,

    I am being offered the following on the base TSX, it seems too good to be true, is it?

    At signing:
    Title and tags.................................62.75
    VA tax.........................................849.33

    The $239 first mo payment would also be required at signing.

    Then 35 monthly payments of $239/mo for a 10k/year lease.

    So basically, $2000 down + tax, tag, title BUT the monthly payment is $239 instead of the advertized $299. Thoughts?

    Hi! I leased a 2010 TSX+Tech for ~$350/mo, 30mos, 30k miles total (forgot what we paid upfront). The car has only 6500 miles on it, so we did not use the miles we paid for and it only has a small scratch on the bumper - otherwise in perfect condition throughout. We are trying to decide what to do. The residual value is $21.9k and CarMax said they would give us only $21k for the car, while dealerships and private parties are selling the same car with 20k miles for $29k.

    I'm not sure we would want to buy the car and then try to find a buyer. Clearly, if the dealer takes this car they will turn it fast and make easy money.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Just leased 2012 Acura TSX Base Model. This is my 2nd Acura with MDX (bought) being the 1st one. I spent this long weekend shopping, essentially for the TSX tech package but couldn't get the deals that have been mentioned here.

    Here is the deal I got - I think if not rock bottom, it seems to be good one.

    1800 Down (includes 1st payment)
    3200 (includes IL 8.25% tax, Tag, license and doc fees)

    239 x 35 months for a 10k/ year lease.
    Got some small freebies - $100 for accessories and one free oil change.

    Residual is 18k.

    One of the dealers in Chicago was running similar deal. The standard nationwide deal is the one with $299/month!

    I think you can do a little more.

    Here is mine ... down payment is 1800 ... yours is 2000.
    For TTL - I paid 3200 ... but note the tax itself is 2475 (let's say 2500). So the TL portion of TTL was only 700, whereas your numbers add upto about 1800.

    Good luck and do post here how it went.

    I rely on this board heavily whenever I am back in the market. I pay my dues by posting what I got or was offered.

    Hi sj_in_key_west. Sorry to hear about your job issues. I can certainly understand how that would impact your credit score. I don't know off of the top of my head exactly how much of an impact this change in score will affect your vehicle's money factor, but I can look into it for you. I suspect that someone with a 560 credit score would have to pay a money factor that's around .00050 higher than the ones for the top tier, but again I'll have to ask around to find out for certain.

    Acura's current buy rate lease money factor for the 2012 TSX is .00046 for consumers who qualify for its "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    Here you go Keith. Acura's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 TSX 4-cylinder Tech with 12,000 miles per year are .00046 and 62%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $500 cash incentive that is currently available on it.

    Hey SergeyM. That is excellent advice. If my credit score had suffered I would probably be inclined to continue driving my current vehicle until I got my finances in order rather than getting something new.

    Hi edcarr. Savvy consumers who are in an area that has a decent level of competition are usually able to negotiate lower selling prices than the ones that are used to calculate manufacturers' official advertised payments.

    After looking at Audi & BMW (I have owned both in the past), I decided to try Acura for the first time. Really like the looks and standard gear on the base TSX Sport Wagon. The lease I ended up with was half the monthly of the Audi Avant I wanted. Black over black.

    Sticker: $32,045
    36 Months / 10k a year
    Gross Cap: $29,500 + $595 Bank Fee = $30,095
    Residual: 19,227 (60%)
    Upfront: First Month $324 + Fees (Title Reg Doc Fee) $418 + Tax $652 = $1,395 (no cap reduction)
    Finance: .00046

    And a free set of winter mats!

    $324 a month - seems pretty good? Dealer near Boston - they delivered it to me in VT. Lots of wagons down there and I guess the TSX is going away for 2013 so I bet the deals will get even better.

    Good luck!
