2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • robertw477robertw477 Posts: 188
    I can tell you this. There are a number of dealers in South Fla (Acura) and I had very negative experiences with most. I was finished until I talked to a salesman who really made the deal happen. One dealer called me today. They never called me back with a price and when I finally got somebody on the phone this dealer told me they do cap cost leases only. Story changed today when they called me back.

    I would never take anything written on TTAC seriously.

    Dealer in Ramsey, NJ offered me 33900 for
    TL with Tech ( MSRP 39450) financing 2.9% for 2 years.

    Is it a good deal?

    Did anyone recently buy TL in NYC ?
  • joeadmjoeadm Posts: 2
    I live in Long Island, NY and was offered 33816 at a local dealership for a 09 TL tech.
    I guess you could get 33-33.5 K with some hard negotiating.

    So overall I would say it is pretty close to a good deal. Plus the tax in NJ is 7% I guess compared to 8.3% in NY.

    In the market for second car and would like some feedback. Test drove bmw 3 and 5 series as well as Infinity G and M's. Then tried the Acura TL SHw/ tech. Loved the car... dealer quoted me :
    MSRP 42,995
    SALE PRICE 38,571

    Compared to Bmw 5 series lease was in low 600's with much higher sticker, Tl doesn't sound like a good lease deal. Maybe better to buy... Appreciate feedback

    this past weekend i got offer for base model TL at $428/month. 36/10k with $2100 out of pocket (NJ tax). hope that helps.

    You have to compare apples to apples, the BImmer that leases in the low sixes is probably the base 528I.If you stepped it up to a 535XI fully loaded that is more in line with the TL Tech AWD you are looking at a $800 plus lease.So the monthly on the TL Tech AWD is not that bad compared to the Bimmer option for option.

    I just got 09 TL with TECH 376.00 a Month plus sales TAX. ZERO CAP COST.

    You dont say what your cap cost was and what the taxes were. Forget cap costs. That lease is pretty high IMHO

  • robertw477robertw477 Posts: 188
    You can do better than that on a base model with 10K miles a yea.r Keep workign. remember the new models are out in about 6 weeks. Prices should drop on base 09 models.

    Great lease price with "O"down on an 09'TL Tech. Assume its at 12K/36mo? Who was the dealer?
  • billyperks2billyperks2 Posts: 378
    Cannot be zero down, everyone has to pay the bank fee $595.

    Dealer was Curry Acura in White Plains, N.Y.. Also CAP COST was 1500. What is this and should I have dealer due away with this. Thanks
  • jmcmannisjmcmannis Posts: 39
    Easiest way to think about it is cap cost for a lease is what a downpayment is for a finance. The higher the cap cost you pay the lower your payment will be. You're essentially prepaying part of the lease. Most people don't recommend paying a high cap cost since you'll just be giving the car back in a few years. For me I say it's a personal decision. If paying more now gives you a lower payment you're happier with then do what works best for you.

    It's zero down, if you don't pay anything upfront.. Almost all costs can be rolled into the lease..

    I didnt even know you could do that, personally, I would not.

    Wanted to contribute back to the forum since it helped me out alot. I purchased the dark metallic color with black interior for $33.9K from Champion Acura in Houston. I felt like it was a good deal since the guy from Acura Southwest wouldn't even match the price over the phone, he told me to come in and I had to talk to the manager to see if they could even match the price. This was the initial offer I got from the dealer by email, drove down there the same day and purchaed it. 2.9% financing for 60 months.

    I just picked up my 09 SH-AWD / Tech from Springfield Acura in NJ.
    Sticker:$43045 (inc destination)
    Price:$37,310 (inc destination)
    TTL and dealership fees:$3,862 (NY tax 8.325%) included window etching and a few other things. Fees were a bit high in my opinion, but the price was right otherwise (I don't think that on a $40,000 car $100-$200 make a huge difference).
    $3,000 down
    $702 per month @ 3.9 for 60 months
    Dealer was very courteous, did not try to up-sell any warranties or service plans and did not cry about not making any money on the deal (the price was actually below the invoice price once you count the $2000 factory incentive, though they still make their 2%). They took 2 days getting the car that I wanted (black/black) and overall it was a pretty painless experience.

    It's the best way to go...

    Most of my leases are 1st payment, refundable security deposit (only if required) and title/registration fees ($114 where I live) upfront. When I get a lease payment, it's generally the true cost of the vehicle..

    On my last lease, Subaru had a promotion.... True sign and drive... I paid nothing at delivery... Just 23 months of payments on a 24 month lease... :)

    How did you get 2.9% for 60 month?
    Dealer in Nj tald me 2.9% for 24 month
  • java5java5 Posts: 18
    Hi mrjerriois,

    Can you please break down the charges for 33900, and can you please tell me the salesman name and did you have any trade and any extra ad dons on the car. Your reply is appreciated as i am also planning to buy a TL shortly
  • prchohanprchohan Posts: 7
    The title says it all. Bought the car today. I think I got a pretty good deal. This includes all season floor mats. 2.9% for 60 months. This forum helped a lot. Thank you everyone.
  • be01243be01243 Posts: 2
    Dear prchohan:
    Can you please let me know which dealer you bought your car from?
  • prchohanprchohan Posts: 7
    I appreciate all the help I got but don't think divulging the dealership name would be fair. I can tell you it's within 20 miles of Hoffman Estates, IL. I hope you don't mind.

    I am a first time car buyer who doesn't really know much about how this all works ....

    I have had my eye on a certified pre-owned 2008 TL Base Model (automatic) without navigation at 17,700 miles and tried negotiating with the dealer today -- it's listed on the dealer website for $28,900 and their "rock bottom price" is $27,700 ... do you think this is a good deal for this car?

    Also, as an alternative choice, a 2006 TL base model WITH navigation at 41,200 miles for $22,800? Can someone help me out and let me know if I am getting a good price? Thanks.

    It would be nice to have the navi but I feel as long as I'm spending that much money, might as well put in a little extra for the newer car which will get more life out of the CPO warranty.

    I DO NOT like the '09 or '10 TL body ... otherwise, it would totally be worth it to spend the extra and get a new car.

    I was in the same market a few weeks ago. See my recent posts, and the responses I received. I went to many dealers, and drove a lot of miles. i ended up pulling the trigger on the same base,CPO, 08 for $26,000. I did not have a trade, but this was the best I got from private seller or dealer. I live in Georgia, and cross checked my price at local dealers, and on the web. I am satisfied with the car, and feel i got a decent deal. Mine had 10,000 mi on it at purchase. For some reason the 08 seems to be a car that buyers want. I did not like the 09 either.
  • Does anyone know when deliveries of 2010 TLs will start?
    More importantly, how much do you think the rolling out of the 2010 model will affect (still brand new) 2009 stock? I really like the SH-AWD w/Tech, but my budget only allows for the FWD w/ Tech. I'm wondering whether the 2009 SH-AWD Tech can be had for today's price of a 2090 FWD w/ Tech once the 2010 model comes to dealerships.

    Huh? That's part of what this Forum is about - sending people to good dealerships. We don't permit salespeople's names to be mentioned, but we do encourage naming dealerships.

    Absolutely. Nothing unfair about it. Dealership gets business. EDMUND's members get a good deal.
