2013 and earlier-Acura TL Lease Questions



  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi jac1304. Acura's April dealer cash on the 2010 TL is the same as it was in March. It is currently providing $2,250 dealer cash on '10 TL Tech models.

    I have an 07 TL/w Technology Package with 25K miles on a 36K mile lease which is up the 1st of July, I'm looking for the current money factor and residual lease figures for CT on 10K and 12K/yr leases. Any info you guys have is greatly appreciate.

    So I have 8 months left on my 2008 TL lease 25,500 miles on it. Will they likely require me to replace all 4 or pay penalty for tire wear at lease end? I have a flat today, am I limited to what tires I replace with? Any guidance or inisght would be helpful.
  • juiced89juiced89 Posts: 4
    Bamf you can replace the tires with any brand just make sure they are the same size tires that were originally on the car, if you replace with different sizes acura will charge you at the end of the lease, also to verify if tires will need to be replaced, you'll need to measure the tread depth with a tire gauge, Acura allows down to 4/32 of tire wear, as long as your over this you're fine.

    Thanks juiced. I'm told my lease comes with 1500 in wear and tear allowance also.
  • juiced89juiced89 Posts: 4
    That's correct but what they don't tell you is that it's up to $500 per incident, so for example if you smashed the bumper and it's gonna cost $600 to repair they won't cover that expense you have to pay the entire $600. They will cover up to $1500 but no single incident can exceed $500. I hope I explained it clear enough to understand.

    go on ebay and buy used tires, that's what i did with my lease.
  • Hey Car_man,

    Could you tell me the current MF and residual value for the sign and drive lease of a TL base, and a TL Tech in Washington State? Thanks!

    On a 2010 Tech Package with 2,000 our of pocket and Acura paying 1,500 incentive and making the first month payment (till June only) my monthly payment for a 36 month lease with 15K miles per year is $500 including tax.

    Other dealers where hitting me for upwards of the mid 500s. One dealer in PA wanted $590; must not want to part with his inventory :-) :P

    I'm not sure if I want to give back the 07 TL Type S. It's too much fun to drive and it's one of the nicest vehicles Acura ever made;I get compliments all the time.

    Acura wants $22K. I've seen them anywhere from 22-28. Maybe I'll purchase it and sell it when Acura comes out with a TL that I like to look at; no offense. It's personal preference.

    I love Acura vehicles :blush:
  • I just got a price of $949 down, 36 months 10k miles a year for $499 a month on the awd version. I wonder if this is good
  • billyperks2billyperks2 Posts: 378
    That looks like the base AWD and not the Tech.
  • My brother is leasing a new TL Tech and I was wondering if the numbers he's getting are ok. I always buy, so leasing is not my area of expertise, so I thought I'd turn to the experts here. He's leasing for 36 mo/10k miles a year. The selling price of the TL is $36, 937. He's trading in a 2009 Murano SL AWD that he owes money on. He'll be rolling the $4000 he owes into the lease (I know it's not a good's a long story). Anyways, the money factor they are quoting him is .00177 and the residual value is $22,994. He's only putting down $1000 and the payments are $575/mo. Is this a good deal/bad deal or a middle of the road deal? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have an Acura TL with GPS 2007 with 15000 miles. My lease is coming up in July. Can someone help with some info on what this car is worth ( I have looked at various sites) and if Honda gives any wiggle room and buying out the lease?
    I am considering leasing a 2010 TL when my current lease is up.

    Your thoughts...
  • left out one very pertinent point....payment?
  • stegrinstegrin Posts: 10 bad...went brain dead for a moment...thx

    $530- tax included...
  • Not really sure w/15K miles but, it doesn't look bad with small OOP. Did you try the leaseguide calculator?
  • stegrinstegrin Posts: 10
    leasguide was the original delaer called me back and dropped the pmnt down to $520/month..I think we're getting close..
  • What's the negotiated price? That should really tell the tale.
  • njvikenjvike Posts: 56
    Are you coming out of an existing Acura Lease? If so, there are some very attractive incentives that you could have.

    With zero down, I was quoted $540.00 on TL AWD Tech PKG. That included the $1,500 incentive from Acura and they will make the first month payment.

    Looks like you're very close.
  • stegrinstegrin Posts: 10
    no loyalty credits due..first time with acura..thx
  • Not sure of your state regardless, $35883 isn't so great. A LOT of wiggle room there
  • stegrinstegrin Posts: 10
    live in s. fla- good to know there is more wiggle room there..thx
  • stegrinstegrin Posts: 10

    Here's the info that you're looking for, coleman97. Acura's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of base a 2010 TL with 15,000 miles per year in Washington State are .00205 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The money factor for an otherwise identical lease of a TL Tech would be exactly the same, but its residual value would be 55%.

    When negotiating your lease, make sure to take advantage of the $1,750 dealer cash that is currently available on the base TL and $2,250 on the TL Tech.

    2010 TL Manual, HPT, Diamond Cut Alloy Rims Installed.

    $400 out of pocket for drive off. (used $1,500 credit and dealer kicked in $890.88)

    $552.49 / month
    12,000 miles, 36 months.

    Los Angeles, CA
  • billyperks2billyperks2 Posts: 378
    Nice deal.
    Why didn't you stick with the stock HPT wheels- the black paint on the Diamond Cut wheels are going to chip off sooner than later.
  • jminjmin Posts: 3
    I liked the look of it on my black TL 6MT. I figured if I'm gonna drive Batmobile - might as well go all the way:) Its a 3 year lease so no worries if it chips.

    Turns out the dealer paid off / bought my RDX Tech return so I'll also get a refund check from Honda Finance for $442. Even better!

    I had three dealerships trying to move their TL 6MT. I don't don't think its very popular so they're getting agressive. Got mine for $36,100 after 1500 loyalty cash.
