I emailed my Acura dealer today regarding the 09 TSX w/ Tech and 09 TL w/ Tech to see how they looked like this month. I was blown away by the numbers he gave me! His 09 TSXs completely sold out, so only the 2010s are on the lot. Next, he has VERY limited availability on the 09 TLs and I can see why (more on that later). Before I get to the numbers, I’m sure you are curious as to why I’m inquiring about lease quotes when I just got an 08 G37 last year and still have 9 months on my wife’s TSX (Well, maybe you aren’t curious, but I’ll tell you anyway. LOL) I’m trying to see if selling the TSX makes more sense than waiting 9 months before replacing it with whats left of the 2010s. This is the 2nd year in a row he’s pretty much sold out (or had limited availability) on the TSX and TLs. I know the wife would appreciate all the Tech and safety features on Acuras (plus we love their lease programs), so I thought it would be wise to take a look. Lets just say I came away SERIOUSLY thinking about this.
The 2010 Acura TSX w/ Tech is not a good lease right now. 58% and 0.00243 is a joke. You’ll be looking at mid to high $400s, so don’t even bother getting a quote this month because you can get similarly equipped 09 TL for a few bucks more.
This is where it gets interesting!
2009 Acura TL w/Tech – $423 + tax, with inception due at signing. Keep in mind I am not using the same exact numbers he’s giving me. This is more of my inception due-at-signing routine, where I keep the fees away from the lease loan. His exact numbers were $1100 drive-off, $438 a month + tax. That is because he is rolling the bank fee into the lease loan to keep your inception fee lower. Otherwise, you’d be paying around $1600 instead of $1100. Want more numbers? MSRP $39,445 and he’s giving a whopping $6,850 off the sticker price. That’s $3,771 BELOW invoice and $2,216 BELOW Edmund’s TMV (See why TMV is so unreliable sometimes?!?). Need more reasons to consider the TL? Check out The List and you’ll see that the TL actually falls below most cars this month. For a $39k car, that’s pretty darn good. If you want to buy, you can use this price (which includes the $2000 dealer cash) with the 2.9% APR for 60 months.
Now, if you are willing to do business with my Acura dealer, here are some ground rules.
- I will only provide you his contact information via email. So you must contact me to get it.
- This is a FRIEND referral, not Dealerplace. This means, you must act as if you know me. I suggest saying you are one of my web design clients or something.
- Serious inquiries ONLY. I plan to to refer the first TWO people who contact me about this deal, because it would seem rather suspicious if a flock of people start emailing him within 24 hrs. I don’t have THAT many friends looking to buy a car right now. LOL.
- Please do not haggle. It would reflect poorly on me if you tried to haggle this already low price. I don’t want him thinking my referrals are difficult. You aren’t required to lease from him, but please don’t make me look bad.
- Under no circumstances should you mention the RIDE with G website. I’m not sure how he’d react to a site like this, so lets just keep it hush-hush for now.
- Be sure to tell me your name and where you are from, in case he calls me or emails me about you.
- This is in Southern California. If you are within driving distance to LA/OC, I suggest that you send me an email.
The way my guy works is simple…He gives me the rockbottom price, below invoice (when the market suggests that’s the case), all in one email. I like that. If you want to shop around your area first, go ahead,I’ve given you the numbers. If no one wants to beat it, you know where to find me.
UPDATE: If you don’t need a TL with Tech, the Base I was offered was $30,196, off of a MSRP of $35,850 (around $5,654 off MSRP). My guess is that the payments should be around $360-$370 + tax. That’s cheaper than my G37 deal from last year which came out to $368 + tax.
