2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • lewplewp Posts: 7
    Yes, that $28,800 figure ($31,100 w/Nav) is very good. The key is the fees, etc. The lowest quote I've gotten is $28,923, but with fees, etc., it came to $31,111 out the door. A quote of $29,057 got me out-the-door at $30,700, which is my best price so far. That's for a Base '08 TL, no Nav.

    I'm wondering if I really need to be closing on that offer on Monday. It appears, from what I'm reading here, that the $2K incentive expires end-of-year (or maybe 1/2). But won't the deals get even better once the '09 is announced and/or available?
  • Best deals will happen in March/ April. By Feb we should know what the next TSX or TL should look like. One of them will be released by April. Summer gets best deals, as few months after [Aug/Sept] makes way for 2009.
  • Yesterday, I purchased a 2008 TL (Base w/o Navigation) for $28,995 before tax, licence and registration. I also get the 2.9% 36 months financing rate. There was no negotiation as it was a costco member price. The only dealer added fees was the $55 documentation fees which is reasonable.

    The whole purchase process took 3 hours including detailing of the car. I purchased the car from Steven Creeks Acura in San Jose. A very painless process.
  • I found a 2007 TL with 10K miles at a dealership in Pittsburgh. They gave me their 'best' price of $31,000 which includes 6% tax. Does this sound reasonable? NO nav, just the basic TL. Loved the car, but I thought they could have done a little better with that much mileage.

    Costco member price is $29,995? I didn't think Costco prices were nearly that good.
  • The prices did not include the destination fee of $715 so prices are as follows:

    2008 TK w/o Nav: $29,515

    2008 TL w/ Nav: $31,815

    Doc fee: $298
    Tags/title: $355
  • Costco price is actually $28,995. Basically invoice minus the $2k incentives.
  • I have had my new CBP TL-S with 6M for just over a week now and I am totally in love with it. My old car is a 1998 Maxima 5M and on my daily driving routine (of about 13 miles freeway and 10 miles side streets), I have been averaging 22 mpg. Possibly because I tend to accelerate hard and partly because I typically cruise at 77-80 mph on the interstate (depending on traffic). On my first tank with the TL-S (including 20 minutes idling at the dealer), I averaged about 24 MPG and so far on the second tank my average is between 25-26.

    That's pretty damn impressive considering the bigger engine, 450 lbs extra weight and an engine with just over 300 miles on it. My friend has a 06 TL 6M and gets 22 ave, and I am much more aggressive than he is. Mileage is one factor I used to decide against the G35S. I also find it annoying that a car like that with a big V-6 and a 6M would be turning over 3000 rpm at 80 MPH. I guess that is where the mileage is going. My Maxima runs about 3300 rpm at 80, not very relaxing. The TL just cruises along almost napping at those speeds. Granted the acceleration is not that sharp in 6th gear, but that is what 5th is for. :surprise: If anyone is still trying to decide on a TL/TL-S, I would do it again and again, it's simply the best combo of luxury, sport and practicality, period.
  • wow. great price. I thought you can't combine 2k discount with the 2.9% financing (at least that what they told me over the phone).
  • nringnring Yardley, PAPosts: 97
    precesion in princeton..ask for internet sales manager...michael thomas...great pressure and no hassel...tell him noah ring sent you and you want same deal...

  • Changw1,

    Did that price include the protection package (wheel locks, trunk tray and splash guards)?

  • Thanks everyone for the information.

    Pulled the trigger on a 08 TL w/Navi yesterday at Mongomeryville Acura in PA.

    Price was 31,800, plus tax and $140 in registration/title fees, nothing else. Great experience, no BS, very professional.

    This was after Elite Acura in Maple Shade, backed out of their offer to buy my trade in after I agreed to their price (will say the salesman was "aghast" and very apologetic, but the manager was totally unprofessional, and I will never go back there due to him). Totally worth the drive out to Mongomeryville.
  • Just the wheel locks is free. Trunk tray I had to purchase separately but they gave me an employee discount which came to $94.

    These are for 07 models, right?
  • jj84jj84 Posts: 5
    No that's 08 models. I really need 1 but my credit not qualified.
  • Hi Parviz, I got my information from Calvin Moore at I paid $33,283 before TTL. Hope that helps. :shades:
  • parvizparviz Posts: 484
    Hi Mary, thanks. I read your post. I just was surprised with the other post's low cost of $31,300 including dest. for a 2008 Navi model. Hope you are enjoying your car.

    given the current incentives on the TL... i'm specifically looking at the TL-S, what other cars are in the same price range, with similar or better performance for the SAME price?

    IS350 is faster, 335 is faster - but both are substantially more $$ especially if you equip them similarly to a TL-S.

    i know there are people here who say they went with the G35 G37,b ut I am looking for a sedan, not a coupe, and I think the G sedans are fugly.

    so for a sedan - that I can buy or lease as cheap as aTL-S... WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO CONSIDER???

    i don't think there is anything that comes close. or am i missing something obvious???
  • laurasdadalaurasdada Posts: 3,094
    Of course there are tons of sedans at or below the price range of the TL-S. It really depends what you're looking for. But:

    Caddy CTS: I think they may already be discounting them...! But, good reviews, imho much improved exterior/interior appearance. But, first year. Also rwd which may or may not matter to you. And a bit more blingy (can't believe an old man such as myself is using the word "bling") than some.

    Lexus ES350: Powerful. luxurious. But soft and FWD which may or may not matter to you...

    Lexus IS250: If you go rwd/MT, not horribly underpowered but probably pales in comparison to 328i.

    Honda Accord V6: Well, it's an Accord.

    Toyota Camry V6/Hybrid: Well, it's a Camry.

    I personally think they did a nice job with the evolution of the G35. I agree it's still not as handsome as the TL, but in my mind it went from a 7 to an 8. Especially like the new G35 grille.

    Also, new TL for '09. Probably debuting in later '08. Would that bother you if you bought an '08 and the '09 was a stunner (hopefully, it will be...)?

    '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.

  • After several months of research, I pulled the trigger yesterday on an 08 Type-S, carbon bronze, with ebony interior--love it. Final deal was $34,687 (includes destination); this included painted splash guards, winter mats, trunk tray, wheel locks, and lifetime free oil changes. Very happy so far with the car, only 30 miles on the clock so far.

    Could not get either of our 2 local dealers to budge below around $500 over invoice (less the $2,000 incentive).
  • Got it today Tl w/o Navi 28995 ie 31725.00 OTD
  • 23109vc23109vc Posts: 218
    i stopped in my dealer tonight, did a test drive.

    got offered 35852 cap cost.
    they offered me 3000 on my trade

    38940 MSRP
    35832 Cap cost

    36m / 10k 56% residual - $21806

    298 license
    116 captax ??? wht is this?
    8.75 tire fee
    45 doc fee
    3.49 doc fee tax

    with NOTHING DOWN, $513 (
    rolling the 3000 from my trade into the deal, it brings the monthly down to 423

    those numbers are TOTALs - WITH tax.

    my trade is a 99 volvo s70 t5 with 130k on it. it's been really wellmaintained and still runs strong, it's jsut old and full of rattles/squeeks. it's worth more than 3k to me...and on the open market i could get 4-5k. not sure if i'll sell it myself and try to pocket an extra grand or two, or just say forget about it and just let them have it for 3k.

    the salesguy tried to tell me the lease deal ended today, but i reminded him the deal runs through tomorrow.

    part of me wonders if the deal will be extended OR get better later in the month.

  • i think deal goin to stop for couple of months now until april when they are going to start clearing their stock for new awesome 09 model which is going to be some prototype of the prototype.
  • parvizparviz Posts: 484
    Where did you get it from? That seems like more than $2000 (dealer cash back) below invoice. Any idea why? Thanks.
  • Anyone know what to expect for incentives now that the Jan 2nd date has passed? Do I need to wait until the spring for a new incentive?

    I appreciate any feedback.

  • 23109vc23109vc Posts: 218
    i passed on the deal they offered.

    maybe i'll regret it, but i think the deals will get better.

    use common sense. do you think it's harder for them to sell TL's NOW, or in 6 months when a new SH-AWD TL is sitting right next to it???

    when the 09s hit the lot the 08s will drop even more and the deals will be that much better. i say waiting is a good thing, if you have the luxury of being able to wait.
  • The $2000 incentive on TLs has been continued. The financing deal is gone though.

    Looking at Acura site, the Lease seems to be the same as well.
