2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Curious if you ever found a dealer that hit your target. I am assuming these prices are for 2012.

    Are there any incentives out there other than the $750?

    There are not a ton of 2012 TL's out there. I see about 20 in my area...Bay Area, CA.

    Great price. Is it with 5% state sales tax (VA) or 6% (MD/DC)? I am planning on giving them an offer before the end of the year on a left-over 2012 TL AWD with Tech package.

    VA only charges 3.17% on cars...

  • car_man! Please post the money factor and residual for 2012 TL AWD Tech for 24 & 36 month leases with 15K miles per year. Thanks.
  • You did very well, indeed; I've been driving the 2012 TL since April's end and am pleased with all aspects of the automobile; especially the drive-by-wire accelerator; control is so much better than any Acura before, too.
    Only 3500 miles since April 2012 and looking forward to the TLX in 2014; these TL's have an ugly blind spot on both sides and require additional help to detect those a spotter or camera as in the Honda Accord 2013's side-mirror cams. Will hang a stick-on-mirror as a temp measure until I trade this in for a Honda Accord with all the side-camera protections or the TLX that is built on the Accord EL chassis.

    which dealer did you get it from? am in the market for one now. AWD with Tech.. Thanks.
  • I received an offer from Radley Acura Virginia for Out The Door (tax,tag,freight license and fee are including) price of $38500 for a 2012 TL SH AWD with tech package. I live in MD.
  • Have negotiated a 2013 TL @$31K..I am wondering if this is a good deal.
    How soon can we see the 2014 TL since I heard a rumor it might be as quick as April?
  • Already a very good price but you can possibly try to get another $500-750 off if you are serious about buying it now. However, 0.9% for 60 months financing offer for 2012 TL expired on Jan 2. I don't know what their regular APR is. If I were you, I would wait for 2013 year-end clearance unless you need a car right now. You can probably get a year-end 2013 at a comparable price (or even less if a redesign is really coming for 2014) and likely at 0.9% for 60 months.

    I realize this is an area for *NEW* cars but I thought I would check with the experts here first. I am looking at a 6 month old Acura TL base model without the Tech options or AWD. Car has 4,500 miles on it. Impeccable shape. Being offered due to relocation.

    Would 26K be considered a Great deal or just about average?
  • As I paid $30,750 for a new one last Feb.,that seems like a great deal..almost new..dealers want a lot more for that car with low mileage.Love the car!!!y 4th Acura!
  • I am in a dilemma now. Buy the base model for 26.5K or a CPO with 6K miles for 31K. The CPO also adds another year and 12K of warranty. Is it worth the extra 5k?
  • sounds like first deal is a better one.never had a problem until after 140,000 miles.Check websites for used Acuras and you'll see how good that deal is
  • You are right. The base model looks more tempting now with these prices. Thanks!!!!
  • I am currently negotiating price with dealer (South FL). Their current offer is $38,979 + tax, tag , title, etc. Any advise as to how much better I could do?
  • UPDATE: was able to settle at $38,400 - not quite as low as I wanted but still quite happy (1.9% financing helps ease the pain!)
  • I am looking at a 2013 TL SH-AWD 6 speed manual. The price I have been quoted in $38,545, which seems like a great deal. I need some help though with residuals and the money factor. The car would be bought and titled in PA. My credit is top tier. Looking at a 17K per year lease. Can someone help me calculate the lease payment based on zero down? Thanks.
  • I am looking to buy a 2013 TL with tech, truecar shows purchase price $35,200, with MSRP 40,530.
    It's almost $2500 under invoice. I know this is the last model year. Tech new TLX is just around corner.

    Can I do better in SF Bayarea in CA?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    i'm looking for the 2013 TL SH-AWD Tech. The dealer offered 41,800 which includes Splash Guard, Trunk Tray, All Season Floormat and extended warranty 96/100,000. Is this a good deal?

    Yeah Acura in Chicago ain’t easiest to deal with: found a good special $1.5k below dealer cost (carsdirect), but McGrath adds “mandatory” nuts/protection to each one of their cars at a crazy $1.4k markup.
    Long story short, got a TL for the cost & without that “protection” – $32.5k, but they jipped us $400 on the trade in (under KBB trade-in value). +$309 for reg, etc fees. we got 1.9% for 60 months (were offered 2.4% for 72).

    Now, I must say I’m impressed with Acura, Honda it is not: 280hp, paddle shifters, spacious & “Audi” luxurious feel of real leather.
    But maintenance is not free … Which is strange ’cause VW’s is.
    I think Passat at $25/29k is still the best bang for the buck mid size sedan, but does not feel as luxurious as Acura ($3.5 difference)
  • Did you get the car? What incentives are included to achieve that number? THX!

    I got a quote from another dealer. $38,998 for the 2013 TL SH-AWD Tech.

    Just bought a TL base today 31,500+ tt, qualified for the Conquest rebate is this a good deal?
  • beach15beach15 Posts: 1,305
    Absolutely so, otherwise you wouldn't have bought it;-)

    Sounds like a great deal. Enjoy the car!

    The first car I owned was a hand me down Accord. I did subsequently buy a new Honda Accord (1990), but moved on to 1993 Toyota Camry v6 SE (the only year they offered a manual 6 - speed transmission), and then to the 1998 Nissan Maxima SE. My last two cars have been the Infiniti G35 6MT -- 2003 and 2006. I have loved all my cars and really enjoyed the G35s. When I learned that the new G (2014 Q50) would no longer come with the MT option, I decided to move on reluctantly. Just a few days ago I traded-in my 2006 G35 for a 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD 6 MT. I love my new car though I recognize that it is more of a grand tourer than a sports sedan. The $1500 'Conquest' discount, and the 0.9% interest on 60 month loan made the transition easy!

    Are you a returning Acura customer?

    Are you trading a lux brand on the TL?

    If so, year, model, mileage, condition?

    No. I just emailed him, and he emailed me back with the quotes...
  • Assuming 38.4k, it lives in the neighborhood of Costco [ok to good].

    Disclaimer is that I don't know what THE price bottom is...

    Depending on the dealer, assuming the amount includes freight and all processing fees, you might be able to bring it down another 500 to 800 to get to my known price bottom [for that, do prepare to go in to dealership and come out empty handed a couple times].

    Then, you can start negotiate give-away add-on accessories such as wheel locks, touch-up paint, cargo hooks, door trim, edge films...etc

    Finally, if applicable, you can bring out the conquest or loyalty to further sweeten the deal.

    Do come back and post your results :-)
