  • llullu Posts: 4
    I checked KBB. They don't have any price for used 05 Acura. But I checked 04 used Acura TL with the options I got. The retail price is over $34,000 based on 5,600 miles.

    Although this is not the forum for this, the wing spoiler cost about $550.
  • I purchased a non-nav TL around that date as well.$31,000 plus doc fees of 399. I'm sorry you had a bad experience at Nalley. I went to most of the dealerships in the Atlanta area. They all make you work for a good quote and they all play some games. Relatively speaking, Nalley was not that bad. (Great compared to some non-Acura dealers in went to.) They didn't check credit without asking. They didn't switch out sales people. They didn't lie to me or get rude during the negotiations. They didn't make me promise to buy that day or make sign my "offer" and they didn't let me stand around forever when they checked prices with the sales manager. They didn't even play any games on the financing.

    You are right that they will play some games in trying to value the trade and they will make you work to get any kind of decent offer. It seemed like every dealer I went to was using the same playbook on valuing my trade. It was almost comical how similar the quotes were. Everyone uses Kelly Blue Book and never mentions edmunds.

    The TL is awesome:)

    I am in San Diego, and drove to Glendale on Friday to pick it up. Acura of Glendale was easy to deal with. I got my choice of color combination , and non-navigation for $30,200. As part of the deal, I added a deck lid spoiler ($500?) and the protection package ($400?) for another $300 for both. Total price of $30,500, Out the door for $33170ish.....Tustin Acura was next best price of $31,400, which included the protection package, I believe.....Anyways, great deal even though I missed the awesome financing by a few days.......Still got 4.9 for 48 months through my own c.u.....

    I was hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction. I am looking into getting a manual TL with Navi preferably black on black. What is the best price I should ne looking for in my area. Edmunds show the invoice price at about 32k+ from the post I read here by another member. Also how difficult will it be to buy out of state and ship to my home state. I want a out the door price for no more than 34k if I can swing it, is this possible, judging by the other threads.
  • frisconickfrisconick Posts: 1,275
    My non-Navi was almost exactly 35,000, but in CA sales tax was 2,800, plus I got a wing spoiler for 550, body side molding for 175, and mud flaps for 90, a trunk tray and wheel locks for free. So I thought I got a pretty good deal. :)
  • golferheregolferhere Posts: 27
    My non-navi was just over $33K out the door here in Southern California. I got the deck lid spoiler, and the mud flaps, trunk tray and wheel locks. There is no such thing as "FREE" trunk trays and wheel locks; they are added in somewhere......
  • frisconickfrisconick Posts: 1,275
    We agreed to invoice of about 30700+, but he held the car for me for a day so I gave him 31,000. Add 2800 sales tax, and that is 33,800. Nobody else was willing to hold the Silver for a day, so I was glad to give Acura of Marin the extra. By the way Golferhere, you go a great deal :shades:

    TIA, sorry for the delayed response--destination charge included; license and registration not included. good luck (fyi, I purchased from Cerritos Acura)
  • ddeiomaddeioma Posts: 2
    FYI- I paid $32,900 plus tax for a TL with nav at Acura of Cleveland.
  • frisconickfrisconick Posts: 1,275
    The sales tax in California is a hefty 2,800, that is the tax in Ohio? Invoice for a Navi is about $32,500, but there is a hold back of about 1,000. Plus, did you get any extras, like body side molding?
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531
    I haven't seen a TL w/nav going for an OTD of $34... you're going to have to up it at least $1000-1500 or move to non-nav.

    Good luck.
  • frisconickfrisconick Posts: 1,275
    The guy from Cleveland claimed he got one for $32,900.

    I recently went shopping for a new car, since my 03 TL lease is about up, well I have 2 payments left, the dealer offered to pay my last two payments (at first they were just adding it in but after some negotiation the price dropped to the point where they were really making the last two payments.) Right now I am faced with purchasing an 05 or waiting for an 06.

    Does anybody know when the 06's are due.

    The dealer is telling me October or November but when I bought my TL last time I purchased the next model year in August.

    Secondly I would love to know what you guys think of the price they were offering, $34,225 plus tax. (TL with Nav).

    I left the deal, I think I can do better and I feel I might be better off waiting for the 06. (New York Tristate Area)

    Can anyone tell me the most they paid in Houston
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531
    I doubt that was truly get $32,900 would be a good price excluding TT&L. To get a TL w/nav for $32,900 OTD is UNBELIEVABLE. That would be great for a TL w/o nav!
  • jennycarjennycar Posts: 5
    ddeioma can you please provide more information on your purchase and the dealer thanks.
  • golferheregolferhere Posts: 27
    He did not say that the 32,900 for the TL w/nav was out the door. He said he paid 32,900 plus tax........FYI-- I was quoted $32,100 for a TL with navigation here in Southern California, and $30,200 for a non-nav (which is what I went with).....: )
  • jennycarjennycar Posts: 5
    Can anyone that got the $32900 deal mention the name of the dealer so I can contact and setup a deal with them. Thanks
  • ae5555ae5555 Posts: 15
    Does anyone know any decent dealers in the NY/NJ area (NYC)? I have tried some (Paragon in NYC, Park Ave in NJ) and they both lie straight in your face... Any recommendations?
  • ddeiomaddeioma Posts: 2
    The sales tax in Ohio is 8% so out the door I got the car for ~$35,660 or ~$2700 in tax. I did not get any extras.
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531
    If you read my message, it was in reply to someone wanting OTD for UNDER $34,000. I said that it was unlikely with a TL w/nav. Frisconick replied that someone said that they did it for $32,900...and I replied exactly what you said, that I doubt it was OTD pricing.

    FYI, I received a bid for $32,200 when I was buying my wife's TL. I already had committed to another dealer and kept my word. I have my doubts that the low bidder would have given me what I wanted, but instead whatever was on the lot.

    Bottom line: I have yet to see someone get a TL w/nav with an OTD price <$34,000 (that would mean the tax in your state is less than 6.25% and the title and license are free...) If you have, please submit the info as everyone would love to buy from that dealership.

    Thanks for all of the insight on this forum. I have read thru the forum and have a pretty good idea but am looking for some confirmation form the board.
    1. I have a quote for a TL with auto and NAV for 34K...this is in the Boston/ Southern NH area...thoughts?

    2. This does not include any extras (floor mats, trunk mats, trim, etc.)...What are the strongly suggested extras..if any? Do that body molding work?

  • frisconickfrisconick Posts: 1,275
    I naturally assumed that the body side molding is to protect from being dinged by cars you parked next to when they open the door. That's why I payed nearly 200 for it. :surprise:
  • grlygrlgrlygrl Posts: 7

    was that auto or man? I am in Ohio too, looking to pick up the TL with Nav

  • laurasdadalaurasdada Posts: 3,094
    Hello. '05 Non-Nav TL owner here.

    1. I think, in the Boston area, you can do better than $34k. I believe I've seen quotes of
    less than $33k in this forum. A former neighbor claims he negotiated to $32k even,
    but he wanted to add some dealer accessories, so the dealer may have figured they'd
    make the profit on the accessories.

    2. Body side moldings do offer more protection than nothing. Unfortunately it depends on
    the size/shape of the object that hits your car! :mad:

    3. I'm sure glad The Sox didn't play this poorly (or are the Cardinals playing very well?
    Yeah, they are) against the Cards in The World Series last fall. Which The Sox
    won. Making them World Champs. In my lifetime. Wow. :D

    '13 Jaguar XF, possibly my favorite of all the cars I've owned. But, my '09 Jag XK was a beauty, as was my '05 Acura TL, '88 Acura Integra, '84 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo & '78 VW Scirocco (my first!). And, of course, the '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R and '95 Saab 900s I bought for the ex... Ok, I like a lot of the cars in my life.

    I have gotten a quote in the DC area for an Acura TL with NAV for $32,670 plus TTL. It was a no haggle, no hassle experience. The guy basically told me that if anyone can beat his price by more than $500 I should just go with whoever makes me that offer. I checked around and three other dealers came back with higher quotes even after I told them the quote I got from one of their competitors. It made the car buying experience really pleasant to know that the guy I was buying from really made me a good offer off the bat.
  • col_10022col_10022 Posts: 18
    I got a quote for $3000 under MSRP (plus destination charges and TTL) from a guy that told me that if anyone could beat that price by more than $500, I should take it. I used the price at three of his competitors. Two of them came back to me with prices higher than the quoted price (it was like they thought I lying to them to get a better price) and one of them beat him by about $100 after a lot of haggling. I felt pretty good buying from the first guy, knowing that he gave me a good price from the very beginning without a lot of drama made the buying experience a lot more pleasant for me.
