2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • rock11rock11 Posts: 4
    32820 + 1000 = 33820 is the price offered. 32820 was the invoice price.

    I was reading some of the posts on Lexus ES3xx pricing thread and was very
    surprised to learn a good deal for that car was something like 87-91%MSRP.
    My surprises are two folds:
    1) I have not seen this type of pricing discussion in this thread, I mean using
    MSRP as a measure, and
    2) If we were to use the same measure and assuming 06 TL/Navi MSRP is
    $35800, and at 91% of that the price would be $32578, wow!

    What's your thoughts?

    Wondering if anyone has recently bought a TL in Denver? Tried negotiating prices but they're not going anywhere near invoice. ;)
  • Has anyone had problems with the 2000 TL tranny?
  • Any thoughts on dealers in the Virginia area who are making decent deals on 06 TL auto navi's.
  • I did have problems with my 2000 TL tranny. Tranny went at 40,000 kms (24000 miles). Back then the tranny problem was well noted. I was # 16 in Canada in line and at the time there were 163 people in the USA waiting for transmissions. After about 9 weeks of waiting for a transmission my dealer, took my car in trade and sold me a new 02 TL at cost. Best and most reasonable new car I ever bought. After 4 years and 170,000 KM, my 02 TL has been faultless. Just did regular maintenance. I am waiting for my new 06 TL to arrive, hopefully next week.

  • Any luck with out of state purchase? I think I need to try selling my Honda first instead of trading it in. We'll see. Have you been to Acura of Seattle or Bellevue?
  • Can you tell me the name of the dealership and location. Also in a private email, please provide me the point of contact.. If you made the deal how about an actual OTD breakdown..Thanks.

    Not so far, probably because of the limited number of 06's. A few have offered 05s for what I've offered for a 06. Nevertheless, some competitive deals on 05's and weighing that option vs. how quickly 06's become more available prior to year end (re pricing & sales tax deduction).

    As for locally, been everywhere with very little price give. Like the other response indicated, may try walking in with check in hand on the last day of the month 20 minutes before closing.

    Tough call on your Honda as a trade-in has always been the great equalizer when it comes to new car pricing. Conversely, not a lot of people walking the streets with $20k cash in their pockets.

    Keep you posted.
  • I paid $1000 over invoice (05 w/navi) or $33,500 from Courtesy Acura on Broadway. I can tell you that I shopped around for almost a year thinking I would get the price I wanted. I started Nov of 05 and was quoted $800 under MSRP as the best price locally. It looks like I only saved about $1,200 by waiting for end of year savings. I shopped from Boulder to Colorado Springs and I can tell you there just isn't much negotiating in the Denver area. A little disappointing considering some of the prices quoted through internet sales sites in CA. Of course, then you have to pay to transport, etc. And by the time I got around to ordering my car in CA I discovered too late that the 05's were mostly gone. Now I'm not thinking about what I paid..... I'm just enjoying the ride!!! : :P
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531

    Congrats on the car! What color did you get?

    I have noticed a marked drop on the posts here lately, guess the 05's are just about gone and the 06's are still too pricey...

  • jinvajinva Posts: 41
    Please post if you made the deal & where. I'm in the DC area and don't know which dealers are worth considering. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
  • Edmunds now has TMV out for TL Nav
    05 = 33455 (still 1000 over inv, ? "outdated" info by a month?)
    06 = 35176 (784 off MSRP)
    diff = 1721 (worth it now?)
  • cdangcdang Posts: 12

    Tell me about it. Whenever I even mention anything close to invoice they go ballistic. $33,500 now that's something I'm definitely willing to pay. How much of a discount are people getting off of a 2006 w/ nav these days? If the difference is about $1,000 I might just go with an 06. Thanks for all of your help. This forum is really making my buying experience easier.
  • cdang,
    I will be picking up my 06TL w/Navi @ $500 over invoice in a couple weeks.
    32820+500=33320. He has the pearl white in stock now but its not what I'm looking for. Has anyone seen the blue? I'm waiting for the red/parch but I'm interested in seeing the blue/quartz. What do you guys think?
  • mgordon1
    If your Acura dealer doesn't have a blue to look at in person, go to a Honda dealer.
    The Royal Blue Pearl is on the '06 Accord and Civic also; they may have one in stock.
    I saw a shined up Civic in Royal Blue Pearl and was stunned and smitten by the color :) ;) (not the car).

    Where did you get your '06 TL w/Navi at $500 over invoice? Share your negotiating tips, please!
  • cdangcdang Posts: 12
    What market are you located in? The lowest I could get out of my dealers in Denver are $35,000. This really sucks. I need to move to California. Please share you negotiating tips.
  • dpavdpav Posts: 19
    Anyone know what HFAC is setting initial money factor and residual for the 06 TL for 12K miles 36 months? (no navi). Has anyone seen the invoice price for this model ? Thanks in advance...
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,754
    I haven't seen a published invoice price on the '06, as yet... But, considering the increase in base MSRP from the '05 model, you can bet on the invoice price being within $100 either way of $31,000.

    For residuals and money factors, post your inquiry here:

  • hi I bought a slightly used TL last winter and I just got the title in the mail today and it says it has a lein on it!!! I bought it from an acura dealer and it was certified. it had less than 10k miles on it when I bought this grounds from me to void the sale and get my money back??? I did'nt put alot down and am paying it out! I don't want the bank or whoever to come and take my car away!!! please help me and tell me what to do
  • went to rosenthal acura in gaithersburg saturday and was quoted $36,989 with navi/sales tax and tage. That seems way too much to me. Salesman said 2005s were totally gone, that they sold 84 last month. All he had left from 2005 was a couple of manual transmission models. Based on posts here went to several dealerships and offered to pay $32500, they scoffed at me. Thinking about buying the 6 speed manual, as I used to own an MGB and have manual experience, test drove the car and it seemed great. Anyone have a manual transmission experience? If I go to a manual from 2005, what should I be paying? Is 33K too much then ? The dealers seem to be making it difficult to buy their car, on the other hand they claim to have plenty of customers.
  • Dealer offered an '05 TL w/Navi for:

    299 - protection package
    239 - registration (for 4 years)
    298 - doc fee

    Total = 33436

    Hi Gang

    I'm purchasing an 06 TL (with nav) next month. I tend to keep cars for awhile (10 yrs+) so thought I would get an extended warranty because of all the electronics/etc. I've been reading literature that states it's better to get a manufacturers warranty rather than an independent company. That's what I plan to ask for when I make my purchase. Would you share some advice/experience about Acura's warranties? Any help would be appreciated.

    elvis4prez, Still poking around I see. Anybody got the car you want in yet? I think I've decided to wait for an 06 as well. I may email a few dealers asking them to email me back when they want to sell me a 06 anthracite/ebony W/NAV for $34K. I am almost ready to buy but I am waiting for work to slow down(hopefully by the end of the month). Right now I have only about 2 days off every two weeks and I really don't have the time to buy a car,especially if I have to travel to do so. I think 34 is a reasonable price point that SOMEBODY should bite on. I'll prolly try everybody within 5 hours or so. Don't forget there is a dealer in Shreveport. I was even thinking of waiting until the last week of December but I'd really like to have a new car to enjoy for the holidays. Decisions,Decisions. At least I am looking for prolly one of the most popular colors, the blue you are looking for maybe harder to find, especially w/nav. when I bought my blue accord in 01 onlyh one dealer in La. had a blue ex w/leather :shades:

    When you get an auto loan from the bank, they put a lien on the title.. That doesn't mean they are coming to get your car.. That is so you can't sell the car, without paying them off first..

    The car is collateral for the loan... The lien stays on, until you pay it off..

    Yes, I'm still "poking around" and going for an '06 at some point.
    You sound exactly on par with me timeframe and schedule wise.

    I'm waiting to talk price with Baton Rouge; previous attempts were vague and derailed when I found out new '06 information that made me decide to wait for a new color combo. BR had no '06 as of a few days ago; their website is NOT updated or accurate for inventory at all. I'll hedge bets with offers elsewhere first ("meet or beat"). Have you actually offered anyone $34K? Seems reasonable for both parties to me.

    For what it's worth, so far I've also gathered (not personally calling yet to "push them"):
    1. Walker (NO): Open and offering $500 "hurricane relief" off MSRP (on all Acuras) (per ad in today's paper) and not answering internet/email inquiries. They have a few '06 TLs in according to website. I'll call when I get a chance especially now that I-10 is open.
    2. Gilman (Houston): MSRP. Give me a break :( , Edmunds TMV is $35,156 = $784 off MSRP.
    3. John Eagle (Houston): in a few weeks the prices will "have time to settle down a bit more"???
    4. Greg Orr (Shreveport): $34,940 ($1000 off MSRP)
    5. Champion (Houston): "I will try to get you as close as $1000 over cost as possible" (the amount I "requested" or vaguely offered based on the 2005 quote given a month ago).
    6. Classic (Beaumont TX): $1000 off MSRP
    7. Sterling McCall (Houston): my desired combo with production date Oct 5-9 will be in by end of the month. Awaiting reply on pricing.

    Did I do all your research for you by now??? :P

    Let me know if this "jives" with what you have scrounged up. Maybe we'll have to make an offer together to buy 2 at once (large volume purchasing discount?! ;) ).
  • Thanks for clearing that up for me...I was getting all worked up lol
  • achenatorachenator Posts: 128
    Yes, you are the man! (or the woman since I don't know). About as far as I have been is a test drive in BR. No 06's in yet, like you said, when inquiring about price "we'll have to see when we actually get the car you want." I haven't made any offers yet, being that not everyone has 06's in yet. I am so busy w/work that I haven't really started shopping price too much yet. I don't want to bother them until I know I have a few days clear. I work two jobs on the river so I have actually been home about 4 days since Katrina. Thank goodness for cellular internet. I appreciate all of the research you are doing and keeping me posted on your progress. One of my jobs is seasonal and should be finishing up in a few weeks and I will be back to a seven days on-seven off schedule. Makes buying a car nice when you have a whole week off to do so.

    Bryan :)
