Default Acura 24 hr test drive?

Does acura offer a 24 hr test drive like some other car companies do?
If not, does anyone know of a car rental company in the NYC area that
rents the TSX?

Thanks in advance, Greg

--------------------------------------
This has been discussed before in this group. From what I have read, the
24 hr or even a solo test drive depends on your age and/or the dealership.
I bought a 2002 3.2TL about two years ago. My experience was that the
dealer almost insisted that I take car for a 24 hr test drive.
I went to the dealer *only* to pick up some brochures on the TL. The
salesman said I should take a quick test drive to see if I liked it. I did
but the salesman accompanied me on the test drive.
When we returned to his desk at the dealership, he insisted that I take
the TL for 24 hrs, no pressure, absolutely no obligation. I tried to bow
out of the offer by saying I had to go to a dinner which was held out of
state.
He said that was no problem.
I did buy the TL the next day, so they know what they are doing. The car
will sell itself if you allowed to drive it long enough.
I was 68 years old at time (*not* 19) which, I am sure had something to do
with it.

Don, thanks for the info -- my father is 68 yrs. old and I will tell
him about your experience so maybe he can find a dealer willing to loan
him a TSX for a day. The accord is the other car he's interested in and
he can easily rent one for a day if need be.

thanks again, Greg
