2011-12 Acura Lease Rates – October 2011

No changes on the lease rates this month. Couple of things to note, however. The 2012 TL’s $1250 dealer cash for leasing and purchasing expires 10/06/11!!! The $500 bonus dealer cash (leasing-only) expires month end. Get on this and quick! The TL is a good very good deal as long as the $1250 dealer cash is available. Once that’s gone, we won’t know if it will come back. ACT NOW!

$1250 and $500 dealer cash is good til month end! Thanks for the tip Shappy!

For 2012, the TSX will come in one extra flavor. The TSX Limited Edition. It is mostly a cosmetic update. I wouldn’t call it an “upgrade” because it looks the same. However, the LE will only come in Manual AND in limited “race” colors and the Tech Package will not be available.  A product specialist at the OC Auto Show also told me that Acura will be making three important announcements between now and the end of the year/early next year. She would not devolve any details though, I guess I wasn’t “charming” enough. LOL.

Here is a sample calculation based on TrueCar’s Southern California sale price and do not include local taxes. Please note that your dealer calculations may vary due to local fees/taxes.

MSRP – $36,490
Sale Price – $31,567 ($1250 + $500 dealer cash applied)
Monthly – $357+ tax
RWG Rating – 98.1

  1. The $1250 dealer cash expires on 10/31. It is not just for leasing, but also for any purchase type.

  2. Interesting. Edmunds says 10/6/11. I will wait until the end of tomorrow and update the post if the date gets extended. Thanks for the heads up! I would love to see this rebate stay until month end.

  3. Just got back from the largest volume Acura dealer in VA and was told the residual on 36month 10k mi/yr lease was 58%, this doesn’t match since the numbers above indicate that it should be 61%.

  4. The numbers posted are for the BASE model, not the Tech. The Tech does have a lower residual than the Base, so the dealer numbers are correct.

  5. I think the residual is 55% for 15K miles and they adjusted to 58% based on 10K. If I am wrong please let me know ASAP as I am about to pull the trigger on an MDX lease!

    • @GT. That is correct. the MDX isn’t half bad this month. Just try to get the lowest sale price possible in your area. Use TrueCar.com to get a price quote or simple to get a feel for how much the MDX goes for in your area.

  6. Hi, can you advise if the following lease offer is worth closing:

    2011 MDX Tech Package
    MSRP: $47,490
    Sale Price: $43,454
    Residual: $25,169.7
    MF: 0.00068
    Inception (incl. 1st payment + taxes): $3000
    This is dealership offer of – ‘Free Maintenance’ for 36mo.
    I believe this is standard Acura: no termination fees and wear/tear forgiveness upto $1500

    Will greatly appreciate your comments/advise.

    • @RJ. Something doesn’t add up. Assuming you are paying your taxes upfront, your payments should be $554 not $599. I am assuming that all inception fees + taxes are paid upfront. This includes the bank fee, dealer fee, county/city fees, dmv AND sales taxes. $599 quote seems to include sales tax, which means you aren’t paying for it up front.

      The MDX is an OKAY lease. It isn’t great, but it isn’t horrible.

  7. @G. thank you for your quick answer!
    You are right with your assumption, the $599 is including the sales tax. Initially I was given inception fees of $1500, $0 cash down, and the final monthly was $599 + tax. I did want to keep monthly total payment (incl. tax) below $600. So, the dealer suggested to pay the taxes in form of $1500 and arranged $599/month final total.
    Does the above clarify your initial query?
    I am not in a hurry, do you think I should wait and I can get better than this?
    Once again thank you so much for your quick response!

  8. @RJ. Well, we are into Nov now, so there’s a chance the numbers have changed. I do think the deal will remain pretty close to what it is now though. I should be getting the numbers soon so if you aren’t in a hurry, it may be worth waiting for.

  9. I went to the Dealer Yesterday Looking for a 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD with Advance (So-Cal) the Gave me Residual 51% 15k and 53% 10k and .00114 MF im going with 10K Do you think that’s correct? MSRP of the Car is 45,975 and they gave me a sale price of $41,560.

    • @DAM. To be honest. I’m not too sure. I know the TL SHAWD Base has a Residual that’s 3% higher than the Tech. But I’m not quite sure what the difference between the Tech and the Advance is since I don’t recall ever finding the numbers for those.
