    Hi Car_Man,

    Just a quick question - I looked at the total Invoice of the TL with Tech and it shows $38,059, should i Minus the $2000 Dealer Cash and the $1500 Loyalty from the selling price to calculate the lease?

    Also, when I check the TMV it shows $37,355.

    I'm not sure of the residual & MF for 36month/10k miles.

    Thanks for all your help in advance!

    I'm in California. It looks like I'll take delivery of both cars this weekend.

    What are the money factors and incentives for the base TL AND TSW WAGON for July?
    I'm in California.

    Thanks again.

    I took delivery of both a base TL and base TSX wagon this weekend.

    Looking at the paperwork I realize I left some money on the table. They matched the price USAA quoted but they took the $1500 conquest off a higher sales price to get there. I guess there was another $1500 I could have shaved.

    I dealt with this dealer because he was the closest to LA with a base TSX wagon but they don't have a dedicated internet salesman so it took a lot of back and forth (nonsense).

    Adjusted cap $31.9K including $1500 conquest (which they charged me sales tax on)
    three years 10K - $316/ month pre-tax.
    $0 down other than drive off.

    I also leased the base wagon w the same terms and a sales price of $30.9 at $334/month
  • I my negotiations with different dealers, I found that the tactic of either subtracting incentives from a higher sale price or claiming that incentives are part of the dealer's already "low, low" price is very common. For example one dealer (not an Acura dealer) advertised $6,000 off the MSRP, but when I asked for my $1k private offer, he replied, that it was already included in the reduction. In another forum, a buyer complained that even after several requests, he still didn't have a selling price on the car he wanted. Always negotiate a selling price and then ask for any company/dealer incentives.

    After shopping around I ended up leasing a 13 TL SPECIAL EDITION for $386 which includes all my taxes. Keep in mind GA charges the full amount of the tax up front which is basically 6.5 percent of the cost of the car at the expense of no charging the annual ad valorem taxes. So about $2400 divided by the 36 months or about $65 a month. I put down $1000 out of pocket which includes my first month premium. Some people put zero money down, but I really wanted to be under $400 a month. The dealership also included a 3 year maintenance plan for the car which includes all basic services such oil and tire rotation every six months or every 5000 miles. Could I have done better? Maybe. Overall, I think this is a steal for what it offers. The Upgraded tires, wheels, leather, keyless ignition, and spoiler are well worth the price especially for the the extra $15 or so on the lease. Driving this car for less than $400 a month and in some States for $350 is a steal.... Folks, Camry and Accord prices!!!!!!!!!!! Love it. Came out of a 2010 G37 and I like having the extra room inside. Loved my G37 and hopefully my new TL will prove to be as reliable. don't mind giving up the extra few ponies and rear wheel for the extra space and comfort....

    Sometimes there's a huge mark up like with the c class right now, so sometimes you might not now how deep you can go.

    Hey beamer55. It depends upon what sort of selling price that you are able to negotiate with the dealer. A capitalized cost of invoice minus these incentives certainly would be attractive.

    Acura Financial Services July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 TL Tech with 10,000 miles per year are .00061 to .00098 (they vary by state) and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I am at the end of my second tsx lease, and just leased a sienna limited for the wife, so leasing is familiar.

    I am not that familiar with how to approach end-of-lease decisions, and what I should factor in.

    I have a '10 tsx base, black in very good cond with 45K miles. Lease matures in OCT. Residual on it is 16,895.

    I am considering handing it back and leasing a TL, or buying out the TSX.

    I am hoping to get advice on this as well as MF, incentives and residuals on '13-14 TL SE's in NY or PA(I'm on the border)
    Any help is appreciated!

    Hi CarMan and all:
    I have three months left on my Infinity g37x lease (paying a little over $400/mo w/ only first month and tags out of pocket). I figured that, with the conquest cash available to offset my remaining Infiniti payments and dealer cash available (I heard $2,000), that I would be able to get into a 6MT (36 months/12k year) for a good rate. I've gotten a couple of quotes on the mid 500s which seemed high for a car nearing the end of its life. After some back and forth I'm getting quotes in the 500 range with $1,000 total out of pocket and a check back to me to cover the remaining lease payments on the g37.

    I know the 6MT may not lease as well as the other more popular models but I was thinking more like $450/month. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  • Carman - can you update the residual and money factor for leases in sept? I am looking at a base model, 12k per year, though also considering a SE model.

    Lastly, with the 2014 model just being announced this weekend, would you think there will be a big push to move the remaining '13s? All the incentives expired last week (loyalty, dealer cash).

    Thanks Carman!!!!!

    Acura is advertising the 2013 TL ‘Base’ promo lease terms-

    36 months, 10k miles/year
    $1999 due at signing, $349/month
    $0 due at lease signing, $0 first month payment, $390/month for 35 months

    BUT, I would push for an SE model and 12k miles/year with these terms!

    Thanks, though they have been advertising that for a long time. Last week I 'thought' I bought a car, and with the incentives and loyally I was at 327 + tax/mo, with no money down. But, the dealer over -promised and can't locate the color combo I want. So, I am shopping again, but the incentives seem to be gone....
  • I was offered a 2013 Acura TL SE for 398/ month with taxes and 1st month upfront for approx 1500.00 @ Curry Acura in New York. I was there this past friday.

    I don't have any 2014 numbers...

    2013 TLs have special money factors.... either .00061 or .00098, depending on what state you live in.... but, I don't have the residual percentages..

    There are very few 2013 TL's left right now, due to incentives.

    With 12k per year, the residuals are as follows for 2013's:

    Base = 56%
    SE = 55%
    Tech = 53%

    2014's have not shown up yet, and will not have cash on them like the 2013's.

    2014 Residuals
    Base = 59%
    SE = 58%
    Tech = 56%

    Money factors will vary based on your region.
  • Being offered $315m 12/36. Everything rolled in.

    Is this a good lease rate?

  • Hello Carman...Hope all is well! My wife's 2011 Lexus ES-350 lease is over in December 2013. Received a quote from our dealer here in New Jersey of $2500.00 down - $389.00 a month for 36 months. Our current Lexus has 20,000 miles on it. This would be our third Lexus with this particular dealer. I think he could do better with the monthly payment! Any suggestions or thoughts would be most appreciated. Thanks Weekend 1014
  • Sorry Carman...Retail Price is 41K. $389.00 a month includes taxes. Dealer paying last month and disposition fee. Currently paying $399.00 a month for the 2011 ES-350. I don't have the other info as yet. Thanks again!!!
