Acura TSX Lease Questions

    No responses? Come on guys/gals, provide your opinion on these numbers. Oh and I have no idea why "Tease" is in the title. Might have been a long day at work or dyslexia set it.

    Here's what I see. First, why wouldn't you used the 0 down lease? It's $360 + tax with, if I understand correctly Doc, Title, and License fees. For me, that's about $400. Most people recommend putting NOTHING down on a lease. You're just throwing money away.

    Also, you need to know the price for the car. With that, you can figure out the rest, as CarMan has posted the MF of .00151 and Residual of 62%.

    This deal looks good, but without the sales price, you can't be sure. BTW, looking through previous posts, I've seen people getting the car for around $27,500. Also, the $750 is wrapped into the lease, as it's money Acura is giving the dealer to help with the lease. But, that doesn't mean you can't try to squeeze some of that money out of them. It's pure profit for them. Good Luck.

    I am in negotiations. Dealer indicates that the invoice price on the TSX base is $28169.27? Is this this true?

    Dealer indicates that they won't go below the invoice price, but like others I have seen people getting the car for $27,500. Again, this no deal, every dealer is offering the advertised special. Kind of irritating, guess I am going to have to play hard ball or find another dealer that is willing to negotiate.

    Yes, the invoice is $28169. But there is $750 in dealer cash, so the net invoice is really $27419.

    Great, thanks.

    Yeah most quality dealers include the protection package (mud guards color keyed, wheel locks, and trunk tray). They do make alittle bit of profit on it maybe $100 but not much. I got it on my '10 TSX V6 and love 'em. Looks alot better than without. My thoughts are that the dealer wants to get the car returned in better condition for resale so that is why some dealers have them installed off the truck.

    Hi Car_man and fellow posters,

    I am negotiating a lease for an Acura 2010 TSX base with 10,000 miles per year. The dealer initially offered the advertised special - $0 down, $0 first payment, $360 per month for 35 months (excluding tax). I counteroffered for a lower sales price. Dealer offered a price of $27,720, which works out to be $344 per month (excluding tax), but I must make the first payment at signing. This works out that I would pay only $260 less over the life of the lease vs. the advertised special.

    This is my first lease - is this a good deal? Should I push for no first payment (saving me $630 over the life of the lease vs. the advertised special)? Alternatively, I was considering taking the deal, but asking that the dealer throw in some acccessories (mud guards, door visors, all-weather floor mats), since I assume these cost the dealer little, but have value to me.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated. I hope to wrap this up tomorrow. Thanks!

    See a couple posts above. They are still not at invoice, but I think it depends on the dealer. I was in negotiations as well, but the dealer would not drop below 28445. I even told them about the dealer cash, and he admitted that it was there, but would not reduce the cost of the car. I offer them $27259 or close to that. I think that you might be able to at least get the car for $27,500 or lower. I would make them sweat it a little as it is close to the end of the month. Good luck.

    The problem with my deal is that I want the manual base, but I am having to go out of Charlotte, NC to get the damn car!

    Where are you guys located? I'm down in FL and I was able to get invoice minus dealer cash on my '10 Acura TSX V6. I even had multiple dealers fighting over it and went with the one that threw in the protection package. The dealers up there frankly sound shady, especially if you have to pull teeth just to get an Acura advertised lease deal...That is a big RED FLAG!

    Good luck guys....

    stumbled on this forum by accident; amazing how many of the lease forums have the same BS problems with dealers NOT being upfront. Here's two tips for you all:
    1. Never, never, never put a large down payment on a lease. It is foolish. If you get into an accident two weeks from the start of the lease and the car is totalled, ALL your down payment money is gone. GAP insurance pays the remaining balance between car payoff and car value ONLY.
    2. Use for REAL data on car costs including customer incentives and dealer cash. Knowledge is power!

    I am located in Charlotte, NC. I have to go out of state because I want the manual. The only Acura dealer in the Charlotte area will not dealer trader or special order for one. Coming from Detroit, MI, I can't believe how stupid that is.

    I have requested quotes from SC & VA dealers. So far I am getting the huge run around for the base manual TSX. I am about to look for something else. No one will come close to invoice.....

    Hi Zack. According to, the dealer invoice price of a base 2010 Acura TSX with an automatic transmission is $28,169 (including destination). That matches up exactly with what the dealer told you.

    You've seen others getting this car for under dealer invoice because Acura is currently providing dealer cash on this model. Specifically it has $750 on the base TSX right now.

    If I was in the market for a TSX, I personally would shoot for $250 under invoice, which is really $500 over once the incentive is factored in.

    Hey Everybody,

    Here's some info on my tsx base model 36 month lease I got on May 3rd.

    Sales price: $27,199
    Down payment: $840.20 (dmv, 1st mo pymt, etc.)
    Miles per year: 15,000
    Monthly pymt after tax: $383.17

    I went to a few dealerships and this was the best offer I found. Hope this helps with anyone looking to lease a tsx base model without navigation.
  • zack82zack82 Posts: 42
    That is an awesome price at $27,199, but it seems like they are playing a shell game with the lease since you are getting 15,000 miles vs 10,000.
  • gator00sigator00si Posts: 46
    Shell game? I'm sure he structured it that way, like most people, since that is around the national average of how many miles driven on a yearly basis.

    I am being offered the following terms on 2010 TSX, 36 month lease, 12k miles:

    Sales Price: $27,269
    Total Due at Signing: $830.25 (1st month + tags)
    Monthly Payment w/ Tax: $361.25

    I ran the numbers and it all checks out once I ad the acquisition fee to the sales price, residual at 61% and MF .00160.

    Thoughts? Thanks!
  • zack82zack82 Posts: 42
    The purchase price looks good, not sure what your sales tax is? But, I think they are charging additional $20/month for the extra 2k miles per year. Like I had posted, I can't even get a dealer even remotely close to your purchase price. The lowest I got was $28445. Maybe I need to drive to Florida? :)
