2012-13 Acura Lease Rates – June 2012

ILX Premium lease numbers are out and it boasts a nice 60% residual. TrueCar market data indicates that most ILXs are selling for about MSRP…some slightly over. Not too surprised there. Either way, I’d wait it out a bit until prices drop a notch. The TSX and the TL should still lease fairly well this month so not all is lost. Remember that new model usually come at a premium so if you want to have the newest and shiniest toy in your block, expect to pay for it.

Below I have a sample calculation on the TL. The assumption is that you are getting the car at around dealer cost. There is $2000 in dealer cash and you may also qualify for either the $1000 conquest or loyalty cash. They look like they can be combined so I recommend tapping into that. If you can swing this, you could end up with a pretty nice ride for a reasonable payment.

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 – $36,600
Sale Price – $32,000 
Monthly – $380+ tax
RWG Rating – 94.1

  1. Thank you so much for everything you do to make sure us car buyers are armed with the information we need to get a great deal. What are the rates and residuals for a 48 month Acura Base TL lease with 10000 miles per year?

  2. Hello G –
    can you comment on following?
    MDX base model 2012
    $0 down (excludes titles/registration fees – inception fees)
    $438/month for 36 months, 10K/yr
    thanks in advance

    • I think that’s pretty good deal. I’ve been thinking about MDX. Can you give me selling price for that car? Thank you.

    • sorry i didn’t get a chance to address this…its been a rough month at work…The deal looks solid but I am curious as to what exactly you paid at drive-off. I am also hoping taxes were included in that monthly payment.

  3. Acura ILX premium MSRP $ 30,095.
    39 month lease at 12k miles / year
    Money factor .00099
    Residual 62%
    net cap cost including acquisition = $27,642
    Monthly base lease payment = $275 + state Tax = $300/ month all rolled in

    Only 1st and DMV fee due at delivery

    Total $11,700 for the entire term of 39 months

    Is this. Good deal?

    • Jack, not bad. I am not a fan of 39 month leases, but the MF is good and Residual is nice and high. You also got a nice discount so the deal is solid.

  4. I’m looking at an Acura TLX with tech package and the sale price is $30,400. One dealer is offering me $505 a month and another is $459. I’m assuming both of these numbers are high? What numbers do I need in order to bring these offers down?


    • Just got a 2012 TL Base

      36 mos
      No money out of pocket! expect 1 st mont payment ( 341)

      Payment ( 322 plus tax is 341), 36 mos

      Zero Down
      Zero Anything but 1 st mos payment

      To top is off they gave me $5500 of my 2003 Nissan Pathfinder with 141K. This money was sent to me in a check, it was not tied into the deal. This is private party money for a trade that they paid in Hard Trade Cash. a fair trade would have been 4000.

      If you are looking for a TL the 2012 has some great deals, if you can find them anymore!

  5. Hi G, thanks for all your info. I’ve been offered a 2012 TL SHAWD tech (MSRP $44000) for $404.97/month for a 36 mo lease with 10k/year (negotiated price is $37000). Downpayment is $3000 plus a $1000 loyalty bonus for a total of $4000. Residual is 51% and MF is 0.00052. I feel the residual is too low. What do you think?

    • I actually got it down a little more today…to $389.50/month..dealer reduced the cap cost a few hundred bucks..they are trying hard to sell the 2012 models now and are giving around $7k discount off MSRP in my area in northern california…I know other places in the USA have even better discounts…
