2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • nohjynohjy Posts: 2
    The price you are quoting would be ~ $1,600 below invoice and there is no way any acura dealer is going to do that price. They would almost certainly be taking a loss on the car. If it was the end of the model year, i could see them being willing to do this to get rid of the older model, but we are in the middle of the year. There is either something they aren't telling you or something you aren't telling us. The invoice on the base TL non nav is $30,400. Add the wheel locks & splash guards and you are @ $30,550. I am sorry, but you are either lying or being lied to. Finally, your suggested price of $29,500 is rediculous! Where did you think any dealer would provide you that car for $2,000 off invoice!!

    Always remember that they would not sell it for that price if they weren't making a profit. This sounds like a good price b/c they are going to get holdback on the car. According to my info, that is about $1K. I would offer 29,600 or 29,700 and sign at their next offer...29,800.

    As of today 3/07/06, price is still at 29,950 and dealer called and said they might do 29,900 but they want us to go into the dealership again. I was confirmed that the cargo tray is not included (which i am surprised because for all quotes i get they include dest + wheel locks + splash guards + cargo tray).

    As I mentioned in my previous post, we walked out after they offered 29,950 because we wanted 29,500. We did offer up to 29,700 but the guy just said there is no way and this is just not realistic.

    There is no reason for me to lie about the price, afterall the reason I came here is to listen to people's input and suggestions...

    Given my zip code and all docs fee (my zip results a 7.25% tax), out the door price came out to be 32,XXX, i forgot the exact number for the hundreds, somewhere around 500-700.

    I did call up 3-4 dealerships to ask if they could match 29,950 and none of them were able to. I thought the reason is because the sales reps don't not like to nogotiate price over the phone.

    How much does the cargo tray worth? I mean, I am guessing that they might raise the price if I want them to throw in the cargo there anything else I can ask them to throw in for free?

    29,950 includes dest + splash guards + wheel locks.

    this price is not quoted from internet or phone, it is AFTER we walked into the dealership twice, negotiated twice, but both of them broken down. the 2nd negotiation just happened last saturday morning.

    we were ready to buy. we brought our checkbook and everything and we were planning to drive the car out the lot that day...but didnt happen because they would not lower no more...

    Does this include a trade? $29,950 is OK if it is Out the Door... however 32k Out the Door is WAY TOO MUCH!

    In late dec 05 bought 06 non nav tl with 3.9% thru honda finance,plus there was a known $1000 hold back at that time making invoice $29999,bought for $30,600 with wheel locks and all season mats,was very satisfied at that time..If you were at the dealer twice looking for a $29500 price and was offered $29950 and had searched this forum prior you would have found out the car you were dealing for was a steal and you would have purchased right there..By the way other poster mentioned a holdback, and edmunds say nothing of this currently..What state are you dealing in??How about Doc fees and other hidden add ons you are not sharing..Also,the dealer should be allowed to make a profit

    " Does this include a trade? $29,950 is OK if it is Out the Door... however 32k Out the Door is WAY TOO MUCH! "

    Huh? Am I missing something here? $29950 includes dest., wheel locks and splash gaurds, which is about $1500 UNDER invoice. Even going in to the holdback, which is usually not done, the deal is a money loser for the dealer.

    As others have posted here, that price is way below any other posted price.

    no trade in, purchase car by paying cash, but i dun think that helps lower price in america, i know in asia it helps.

    living in los angeles, ca

    now that they can do 29,950, if i want navi now, should i add 2000 and offer 31,950? or should i do a ratio addition, by MSRP 33,325/ price now 29,950 = MSRP w/ navi 35,325/ price i should offer 31,747

    so if they can do 29,950 they should be able to do 31,747?
  • What dealership? At this price, I might head out there myself to pick one up!
  • gxr1kgxr1k Posts: 6
    Acura wants to make the largest profit it can, correct? Why would they list all the holdbacks, kickbacks and every secret for them to make the lowest profit? Try other websites to get more information or pay a little $$$ to some car sites and you get more info. Does a salesman want you to know how to chip away at their margin of profit? They can make $200 off a car and still do good b/c maybe it represents 1 more car sold and that may help them the following year b/c of volume.

  • Just curious if anyone has been out in KC pricing TL's. I have an 03 w/19K on it, considering trading up if prices are soft - any thoughts?

    Are you telling me that you won't buy the $35,000 car that you want because of a $200 difference over however many payments you are planning? Either this just isn't true, or you are stubborn for sake of being stubborn....recognize the deal you are getting and pull the trigger.
  • jb_turnerjb_turner Posts: 702
    I was being facetious and patronizing. I know as well as most other people the price chilamm was quoted is not possible.
  • chilammchilamm Posts: 11
    im paying cash, but does it make a difference? just because one is paying over 30g for a car does not mean one should overlook a $200 difference. hell even if it is $100 i would try my best to get it.

    and if it wasnt because of my stubborness, i would've never gotten the price down to 29,950. took me 2 trips to the dealership to get this price, and now they're calling us to say they might lower it another 50$, so who is the winner? is it worth paying the $100 or $200 more so that i can get the car a week or two earlier? at least not for me.

    I agree with poodog13.

    chilamm - if you've actually looked at other posts on this board regarding what others are getting, then you know that you have a hell of deal. I'm tired of reading about how and why you walked for $200. Do us all a favor and save your next post for the actual details of the deal you make. That is if you ever get one. I think the TL is a great car, I've had mine for 2 weeks and love it.

    Still waiting for the name of the dealership.

    Man, if I were in LA and knew the gift horse that you are looking in the mouth, I would run down there and buy the car out from under you! Are you factoring in the value of your time to continue to shop/haggle and not buy the car you seem to want?
    When I bought my '05 TL, I paid invoice. I did not get as much as I had wanted for my trade, though. So, did I lose? No way, I got the car I wanted at a fair price. If I really wanted to spend the time and $ to sell my car on my own, I would have. But I chose not to (opportunity cost). Did the dealer win? Sure. He made money. Captialism rules!

    Dude, buy the car. Drive the car. Enjoy the car. Get on with life! :)

    chilamm - Do what makes you happy. However, I suggest you think about the value of your time.

    I'm very impressed with the prices people in this forum have been getting for 2006 TLs. Using a Phoenix-area zipcode, Edmunds TMV for a TL w/ Nav is $34,828, while the CarsDirect Target Price is $33,819. So the Edmunds TMV is about $2,000 over invoice, and CarsDirect about $1,000 over invoice. You guys all seem to be doing better than this.

    The CarsDirect price for a base TL Auto is $31,999, which is a thousand over invoice. So chilamm's price is exceptional.
  • prospprosp Posts: 6
    arizonjoe - I always use Edmunds TMV as a starting point. Right now the TL seems to be readily available at, or just above, dealer invoice.

    I just finished shopping for up an 06 TL, and dealers in NY/NJ area were very aggressive on pricing.

    I pick up my TL on Saturday from Bedford Hills Acura. $31,200 for a Silver/Black 06 TL automatic/non nav/deck lid spoiler/body side molding/wheel locks. My out the door price will be around $33,600 (7 3/8% tax!).

    I could have done a little better, but it would have required driving about 50+ miles.

    anyone with any experience in 2006 tl with navi pricing. it seems that some buyers in the northeast and lower eastern states are looking at 32,500. with ttl with a few options thrown in..does anyone out there in ct. have this experience. if not, what are you getting for pricing...thank you all
  • Did you get 32,295 out the door....If you did let me know the person that you spoke to so I can buy ASAP. Thanks
  • Anyone know if getting 32ish out the door is possible for a 06 TL Nav.....or is that to much to ask for. I'm in the Baltimore area
  • ggesqggesq Posts: 701
    32ish out the door or 32ish plus TTL? 32ish out the door is wishful thinking in any part of the US for a 06 w/ Navi. ;)
  • Has anyone been lucky to get 33k O.T.D. on a 06 TL NAV. Is that realistic?
  • laurasdadalaurasdada Posts: 3,062
    It's difficult to talk OTD price as each state has different sales tax, local taxes, licensing/registration fees... Not to mention dealer "Doc Fees." But, I'd think anywhere you can get a new '06 Nav OTD for 33k is a good place to live!

    ..... Still waiting for the dealers name and area .. especially at that $29,990 price .....

    Name and area please .....!

  • I've just been offered 33,400 for a TL Nav out the door. GOOD DEAL?!?! I live in the Baltimore area
  • Scratch that.....The dealer said it was a typo....its 34,400 out the door
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531

    As you can see from reading the forum, a good price for a TL w/nav is anywhere in the $33K range before TT&L. There have been some "fire sales" where people get them in the $32 range, but this is usually in CA or from an end of the month desperate salesman. I don't know what sales tax is in Baltimore, but you can figure it out yourself. If you are absolutely needing to cap the cost at $33, then go for a TL w/o nav and you may be able to scrape by...or try to buy a used TL from '04 up (they are the same body style)...

    Good luck!
