    You should start by building your car on our New Cars page. You'll get the MSRP and the invoice price of your vehicle, plus the TMV - the average price that other buyers in your area have paid.

     

    It's important to know in which area of the country you're shopping, as prices vary from region to region.

    Acura is currently running a promotional lease on the RSX, auto or manual, for $2500 down and $199/mo + taxes for a 3-year lease, 12K per year. So your price sounds high. At $500 down that same lease should be around $239/mo, maybe $249 at the outside.

     

    You are in the ball park though. And I should probably add that since today is 2/1, it is just possible that the promo ended yesterday - they have been running it all through January, and even before that I think.

  • i got quoted a lease deal of 4000 down and 233 a month for a 2005 acura rsx, leather and automatic, spoiler. is this a good deal or could i do better?
  • that is the 3 year 36000 mile lease btw.
  • Kirstie_HKirstie_H Posts: 10,896
    Please don't put $4000 down on a lease. You'd be better off putting that $4K in a bank account and making payments out of that account. Why?

    Let's say you drive the vehicle away and it gets totalled or stolen the next month. The insurance will pay off the finance company, but will NOT reimburse your $4000. Your $4k is GONE. Now you need another car, and you don't have $4k for a downpayment.

    The money down on a lease does nothing but reduce your payments. Most members here will recommend, as I mentioned, that you put that $4K aside and use it to help make your lease payments. We recommend putting as little $ down as possible - security deposit, fees, and first month's payment only.

    Hey, just wanna give you guys an idea. I just bought a type-S. window sticker of $24,140. I got the deal for $21,300(before tax and doc fee). I am in Boston area.
  • mher916mher916 Posts: 6
    I think that is a good price. Mine was $23,900 w/ oem kit & wing (part of the a-spec package)so I don't really know if mine was a good deal or not. I live in Calfornia so I figure the prices here are a little higher than Boston???

    I am getting an offer from a dealerfor RSX 2002 base model cloth, manual for 15K before taxes etc. However the car was bought in 05/2003 by the previous owner. The car is in excellent condition. Could you tell me if the price is OK?

    Thanks

  • Hey ... I'm in the Boston area and looking at a RSX/RSX-S ... where did you pay 21,300 for a type-S??? Thanks in advance!

    How is this for a lease deal?

    0 down
    36 months at 307.00

    12,200 residual

    5,000 cashback when I trade in my 01 Focus ZX3 with 24k on it and the usual options.

    This is for the RSX with leather 5 speed
  • i test drove an '05 and didn't really notice much of a difference. the seats were a bit more comfortable, but the '02-04 seats already are nice as it is. the '05 speedometer/tach are uglier in my opinion, but the suspension seemed to be better. i dunno, i'm glad i got the '04 at that price. i don't really like the redesign anyway.

    I got my 2003 RSX Type-S with spoiler, brand new, for $22,400 at Acura of Boston. I had no trade and $1000 down. I was able to get a 3% rate on my pre-approved loan so I didn't bother with a larger down payment. I always get a loan approved before I go to the dealer so we only talk price, no financing. I asked for the same price from Acura of Auburn and the salesman laughed at me and told me 'good luck getting it at that price'. I went to Acura of Boston after that insult. I love the car. It's my 2nd Acura.

    now has an ad running that expires at month's end: $149/month for base models with cloth only. Down payment is a whopping $4000 or so. But I bet that with a bit of numbers-juggling the same lease would be around $249/month with nothing down. Not too bad.

    fresca: I actually like the look of the gauges better on the '05, but prefer the exterior looks of my '04, so I am glad I got mine when I did, too! :-)

  • I just picked up a 2005 RSX this week from Clair Acura in Walpole, MA -- they made the whole process painless. Great sales people and the easiest car buying experience I've ever had!!! Got a 2005 RSX for $19,200

    In Baltimore MD

    Purchased an RSX Auto w/leather. Options; trunk spoiler, fog lights, mud guards(a must), wheel locks, door edge guards, & sunroof visor. $23,555 on the road..tax and tags incl. Added a $495 alarm system later. Prices tend to be demographic. I would not pay over $24k all said and done. Keep in mind that most of the above options are dealer installed and will sustain an installation charge.
  • Heck yeah! I just leased an '05 Type S and I pay $368/mo with 15K, 36 months. Sounds like a good deal!
  • natenj1971natenj1971 Posts: 174
    Hi,

    Any recommended NJ dealers in the NNJ area? How about pricing for an RSX with leather auto and 5 sp?

    Thanks for any info.
  • brandi20brandi20 Posts: 20
    you should have tried to get them to honor the 229$ a month lease that they have offered in the past, you might have gotten at least 270$. but anyways, congradulations!
  • Hey,
    After some vigorous internet nego, i got my 2005 RSX-S at $21500 at Santa Monica Acura. The best offer I got was 21400, but I didn't want to drive down the Van Nuys. Total OTD cost 23100 with all the fees and taxes and stuff. I would highly recommend Santa Monica. No high pressure, everyone was very nice, and no funny business on the contract.

    I love the new 17" rims for the '05 S! Hope you are LOVING it so far! (I wouldn't have endured 20 miles on the 405 to save $100 either!).

    That's about 15% off sticker, right? Good price.
