2013 and earlier-Acura TL Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I am wondering what recent sales are for a 2011 TL FWD w/tech in the midwest - st. louis area in particular. I have looked on and for market value, however I am not sure what I should be offering for a white/taupe. One dealer told me they had that combo in the 2011 tl w/ tech, but that it was a demo car and had 2300 miles on it. I told him I would consider it and he gave me an offer of 35,777; which just happens to be the edmunds TMV for a NEW, not demo of this car. I told him I was not willing to pay that for what is essentially a used car, not to mention a demo that has 2300 hard miles on it. This was not an out the door price because he then included the sales tax in the email.

    i need to know a price including all fees except TTL, as I know that varies everywhere, for a demo car and a new car. I know the demo is technically new because it has never been titled, but i dont consider that a new car by any means (as least as far as the price im willing to pay). the more i consider the demo, the more unattractive it becomes, but who knows if the price is right.

    thanks everyone for your help!

    Thanks for the advice.
    I have checked with most of the dealers in chicago and it looks like 2009 Base + Tech or Base + Tech + AWD are selling really well since they don't seem to last more than a month on the lot even though still has them listed.

    Actually Paragon acura in NY seems to have the most reasonable prices for 2009's. Folks from east coast might want to head down there if there are looking for some savings.

    DO not go to paragon- its a nightmare- place is a complete joke- the used car prices are great but be warned. They turn over used cars like no other dealership and as a result cut costs on reconditioning. -- the certified sticker on the window does not mean its certified.. I would use there price and find another dealership.
  • Looking at my local dealership and they have 8 2008 TLs with nav going for around $23.900 to $24.900 with 35,000 miles. Is this a reasonable price? KBB values says it is but I figure there has gotta become wiggle room. Would appreciate any advice/info. They also have non nav models for 21,900 with similar miles.

    I'm in the market for a 2010 TL Tech. I got an offer from a local dealer on a Brand New 2010 TL Tech at the price $32744 otd with the 0.9 apr for 60 months financing. Does anyone if this is a good price or should I keep searching?

    I would appreciate the advice.

  • I am in the process of purchsing a 2009 certified pre owned TL w nav with 17,500 miles. Not sure if I should purchase the extended warranty. I am leaning against it as of now. Any thoughts/suggestions?
  • Hi all,
    I was quoted a price of $42,945 for a 2011 TL SH-AWD 6-speed manual w/ tech pkg & high performance tire package. When I mentioned the current $2000 cash-to-dealer incentive on this model( thru 2/28/11) ; the salesman claimed he wasn't aware of it. What would be a good price for this particular model? Should I give up on this dealer and try others? I live in TN where there are only 5 dealers in the entire state.
  • Did you end up buying the 2010 TL Tech? I am also looking for a 2010 TL Tech pretty soon (like in next one week) and am getting prices that are all over the place. One dealer quoted me 33K+860 destination.

    Any good dealers in the Chicagoland area?
  • That's what I paid at continental in Naperville it's a good price Inc low rate financing
  • the salesman is either a fool or isn't being honest. Edmunds is quoting 39.6 out the door for that model. Given that the 2012's were just released, no way should you be paying 42K for a 2011.

    12's are out, where? website still shows 11's. i would wait until acura gets things right again - please let acura atleast fix the beak- maybe give it more power or maybe more forward gears with the auto..


    scratch that.. the 2012 is listed as a future vehicle (acura must have nothing more in the stable??) it does have a 6 speed and it looks like they stuck with the general theme of the bad nose-but its a little more subtle and it looks like they fixed the back end a bit and they added blind spot as an option.
  • Was looking for a pre-owned '09 or '10 TL with AWD and Tech but came across two new 2010s at a dealership. Given the mid-march release of the 2012 model, what are the chances I could get a stupid good deal on a new 2010. The number they gave me at this point is ~$36k.

  • Hi,

    I want to know if im getting a good deal, on a 2011 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package Lease. I negotiated it for about 40,000 from 42900. The current offer is 652.52.

    with the $ 2040.00 down for 36 months and 15,000 miles a year including the maintanance for the first 2 years.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I dont know much about leasing, but this dont look like to be a good deal at all. You can definitely negotiate more on the selling price. To give You an idea, I paid $37500 for my 2010 TL AWD Tech when it came out.
    Good Luck in Your search.
  • I just looked at a 2011 TL w/ tech package in Seattle WA and they said MSRP $39,895 + $495 for splash guards. I asked the lowest price and he said "about" 36k to purchase. What is the lowest price someone has paid for a 2011 TL w/ tech? This one was charcoal with black interior and standard wheels (not the upgraded).
  • I just have bought 2011 Acura TL with Tech. package in Columbus, OH
    The price was $35, 123. It has also included a paint sealant protection Xzillon which was free. Mine was black/black car. Make sure to get a $1,500 Acura incentive for TL. It will bring the price below invoice. Good luck!
  • Hi, looking to buy 2011 TL with Nav or with Nav & AWD.
    What do you think is a good buy price? No money down. Cash.
  • $35,123 is out of door price? thanks
  • $35,123 was a purchase price which I have negotiated. The dealer has waived document fees and has added a paint protection free with a 5 year warranty. (I think it is usually cost around $650 -$700).
    It was a lease. They also have bought my previous Acura, which lease was up at the end of November 2011. Here are the final numbers:
    $0 down, $493/month, tax included, 10,000/year, 36 months lease.
    The is Acura TL 2011,Tech, Black/Black.
    The only way to get out of the lease early is to have a dealer to buy your car.
    Unlike us, the dealer does not pay sales tax, so it is much cheaper for them to buy the car ahead of the lease expiration and get a customer into a new car.
  • Am going to test drive a 2011 TL SH-AWD 6Spd manual with 19in wheels. The dealership is taking forever to tell me the price. What do you guys think will be a good price? I know the MSRP is probably around $43,000. But figuring that not a whole lot of ppl are crazy about stick shifts as i am, i think that could help my bargaining power. I really love this car. has navigation and all. Helpful tips please. Thanks guys
  • I have this car, but 2010. I think we got them down to 39,900 base price if I'm remembering right. We are in Seattle. One thing to keep in mind about this car, is that they have a limited # of manual transmissions in stock on the lot, so it's not like they HAVE to move them like they do w/the more standard TL's (which they have waaayyy more of on the lot). When we tried to negotiate down further they were NOT having it.
    That all being said, we LOVE the car.
  • Thanks men, I appreciate the tip. How is the drive? Any issues u have had with the car? any thing u didnt like too much about it? The guy just called me and offered 3K discount to 42K. But i dont him I wont negotiate the price over the phone. If it's how it looks online, I will love the car. But I won't be ready to take possession of it till end of march.
    Any forums where i can find out more abt this car? Thanks a lot
  • In NE Florida, I paid 38,850 base price almost a year ago for my 2010 black/black 6MT w/19in wheels. Couldn't get them any lower. Absolutely LOVE the car. Gone almost 13,000 miles and still drives like day 1.

    Only problem I had so far was a very annoying sunroof rattle that started about 6 mos into ownership. The dealer ended up fixing it without issue and it hasn't returned so far. Evidently it was associated with a certain VIN range.
  • thx a bunch. i appreciate the info. i test drove it last nite. very good leg room. tried 2 rev the engine but doesnt sound like a lot of power. wasn't really a quiet ride. the salesman mentioned it was cuz of the 19" flats. how is ur interior around the dash? this one has the dark silver material wraparound. i dont know if they have the woodgrain one and if i can change that for this car. i still like d 2011 body style, better than what i can see of 2012 model
  • I feel that mine is a really smooth ride, and definitely has balls. I did notice a very slight rattle, but have forgotten to have it checked at the dlrshp the last couple oil changes (I only sporadically notice maybe it could be the sunroof? but sounds more like a door panel to me). We did have to have the plastic under the navigation screen and above the air vents replaced because it didn't "seat" correctly, which the dlr did w/o issue right after we bought it.

    Probably my least fav thing about the interior is the silver (plastic-y) wrap around material on the dash.....I had wood grain trim in my previous car (bmw) and prefer the wood grain....but can't get it on the TL, just the RL if my memory serves me right. Oh well, the seat leather more than makes up for it!

    Oh, and in case it matters....I'm actually a woman. And I love my 6 speed!
  • My dash has the metal aluminum look trim. I don't think you can get the wood trim with the MT, at least not in 2010, but I don't like that look anyway so not a big deal for me. You would have to ask the dealer.

    Don't know what car you have now, but for me the TL has plenty of power.

    I drove an AT FWD TL with 18" wheels for a week as a loaner and it is somewhat quiter but not nearly as much fun to drive as the MT AWD. I am sure the noise depends on the tires too. Road noise wise....I don't notice much of a difference between the 2005 Accord I had and my 2010 TL. I do hear the engine much more in the TL compared to the Accord, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. My friend has a Lexus and I considered going that route but it was to "soft" for me. I didn't want to spend $10,000 more for an Audi or BMW and I don't like the interior of the Infiniti. I had to have a MT so that limited my options too.

    It all depends on what you are looking for and what you want. For me the 6MT AWD with 19" wheels is the car for me and I plan on keeping it until it dies. I even like the way it looks.

    Good luck on your search.
  • I dont think the wood grain is available, you can always get the after market stuff-but I would advise not to, it cheapens the car.
    I swapped out my steering wheel and gear shift knob for the wood grain tthat Acura offers.
  • "Oh, and in case it matters....I'm actually a woman. And I love my 6 speed"....Ditto.

    I was given a quote for 2011 TL SH-AWD w/tech with ~$37000. It was shown invoice price for this car is ~$40000. Is it a good deal? Can I get even better deal?
