My Take: So my wife wanted me to call Jerry Ede about leasing a 2010 TSX base model again. Certainly not her first choice, but she’s trying to get the best deal right now between all of the cars she wouldn’t mind driving. At first, she didn’t want to drive another Acura because she wanted something different. We are deciding between the Jetta Wolfsburg, Tiguan S, CR-V LX, Toyota Prius and to an extent, the G37. But the G37 payments came out to be a bit higher than she’d like to pay, so it’s pretty much out of the running. I’m not saying it was a bad deal, because it was phenomenal (see more on the G37). The issue was that it was beyond her targetted monthly payment of $370 with tax and little to no drive-off.
At first glance, a TSX with a MSRP $30,120 and a invoice of $28,169 as your sale price, your payments would be around $360 plus tax with all fees due at signing. Now there’s a $500 dealer cash available for all 4-cyl non-tech models, so I would personally shoot for $500 below invoice PLUS maybe 1% of that holdback, or another $300, making it a $800 below invoice price. That would yield payments around $336+tax with all fees due at signing. Looks okay, but I’m not seeing too much of a difference from December since the higher MF is practically eating away at the $500 cash.
