  • Good morning,

    I am looking to purchase a 2012 Acura TL AWD with the Tech Package this week.
    What is a good price i should pay for this vehicle?
    I have been searching this forum and it seems prices vary 3-5,000!

    Look at and put in your zip.

    The TL now has a $2000 factory-to dealer incentive.

    So...try to get the car for at least $2500 BELOW dealer invoice, then add tax/title/license.

    If the dealer doesn't agree...then move on to a new dealer. Acura/Honda seem to be desperate to sell the car!

    Good luck!

    Try to hit $39000(otd).

    Dont pay more. You should be able to get a TL tech for around $33400 including destination charges. All you need to pay is documentation fee and taxes , title and registration. ie around $35500 to$35800 out of door (OTD).
  • Yes, 33,400 sounds great but if a dealer was to take that offer you would be getting almost all of the Holdback money and in most cases that is unrealistic to think a dealer will give you that unless they are seriously hung with a bunch of a certain car. A more realistic offer on a TL with Tech would be Invoice at $37,737 less dealer incentive of $2000 and less the $1200 flex cash from Honda Finance if you finance through them at .90 or 1.9%. That would leave a bottom line of $34,500 plus tax, lic and any dealer fee that they charge. I don't think you are going to find many dealers who will give you the Holdback. That offer is $5720 off sticker or about 14% off.

    Dealer recommended wheel and tire Hazard warranty for 2012 TL w/ Tech – 17” wheel. 5 years, unlimited milage for $585.
    Could someone comment? Is it necessary for this car?
    Did anyone experience problems with the 17" wheels on the TL?

    Dealer will sell you the TL tech for less than $34000 , if you make a serious offer. go to carwoo and dealers will quote there price . Put a price below
    $34000 and dealers will accept your offer...this the price going in
    eastcoast area.
  • would you believe i tried that over the weekend and have yet to get a response.
  • Has anyone seen any better deals. It has the navigation package and only 33,000 miles. Is this a good deal. Dealer wants $22,000.
  • ma2010ma2010 Posts: 5
    some time the dealer take time to respond, wait till last week of march, and
    counter with an increased price offer , slowly increase your offer upto $34000. some one should respond to you.good luck.
  • That seems high for a 5 year old car.Purchased a new one for $30,750 ,36 month 0.9 % financing a month ago

    Hey everyone,
    Just signed/picked up a BWP/ebony 2012 TL awd/tech for $38500 OTD. Hope this figure helps you all out with negotiation!

    Sounds good Ninja.

    What State?
    What Dealership?
    Did you take advantage of the Acura financing?
    What was the Selling price?

    Just picked up my new baby!

    2012 TL SH-AWD Tech Auto trans. Black/Umber combo

    Purchase price: $36500 + $399 (processing fee- non negotiable at this dealer) + Maryland tax (6%) + title/license. Yes...that price includes destination. The dealership also included 'free' wheel locks..worth about $90

    I added $400 for body side moldings and splashguards.
    MSRP was$43770

    Financing at 0.9% x 36 mos (3 years) through Acura finance

    The $36500 was obtainable by using $1000 flexcash that the dealer got through Acura Finance...didn't matter to me, as long as I got my price. I think the deal was great!

    Purchased on 4/4/12 @ Pohanka Acura in Chantilly, VA. All negotiation via email/text. Car was prepped and ready when I got there..took about 2 hours to get everything signed.

    Good luck to all. The car is fantastic!

    Hi everyone,

    As the title states, I am currently targetting a 2012 Acura TL base model. The listed MSRP is $35,705 and invoice is $33,527. I just wanted to get a general idea of the purchase price I should shoot for before PF, destination charges, and TTL. I have heard that 2,500~3,000 below the invoice is a good starting point so would I target for somewhere around 31,000 before the usual fees? I would appreciate any feedback and any purchasing experience. Thank you.

    Paid $30,750 ($36,490 MSRP) back in Feb ,including all charges except for taxes and registration.36 month 0.9% financing and you might be able to do a little better.Be firm!!,good luck!!
  • sk1182sk1182 Posts: 7
    Thanks for the reply! Would you say 30,000 before TTL is feasible?
  • Try to get close to$30K and pass on all the options they try to sell you.Usually tou can get the best deals towards the end of the month.Tell them you have a buddy who paid $30K and call their bluff!!Good luck.

    Hello everyone, need help figuring out whats a fair lease for a 2012 Acura TL with Tech. invoice at 37800. plan to negotiate to the 34000-35000 range. residule value 59% MF .00114.

    i plan on rolling taxes into monthly payments and just pay for docs, fees, and first month.

    is there a formula that can help me calculate these lease prices?

    also have a question, are taxes calculated of the msrp price or are they of the final sale price?

    thank you in advance everyone.

    I am looking for a base TL as well, let the dealer know about this deal for 30K and he said if I could provide a buy order number and dealership he would match it.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,647
    He said that because he knows that you probably can't get that information...

    If he isn't willing to do the deal now.. why would that make a difference?

    I just got very good deal for 2012 Acura TL Tech - $33000 + dest fee + taxes, etc. As I know for base deal was $28990. It was in NoVa, dealer - Radley Acura. Got deal through carwoo.

    Good luck
  • hrstl1hrstl1 Posts: 5
    Great thanks! I will try Carwoo as well and see if there are any dealerships in the area or 200 miles out that can match the deal. Right now, it sounds like they want to stick to 32K.
