Default TSX price

I am getting 04 TSX (black -black) Auto with Nav + cassette player
(worth abt 300 bucks) for $26500 + taxes(NY state). Any views about
this price. Shud I have bargained more or this is a decent deal?
Thanks

Default Re: TSX price

I paid about $27000 for mine in December (+ tax & title), without the
cassette. I did add all season floor mats, trunk tray, cargo net, and wheel
locks. The sales person who did the delivery (who was not the one I
negotiated with) said it was the best deal he'd seen.

Default Re: TSX price

there's a 3% holdback on Acura's. your TSX msrp is around 28-29k, which
equates to approx $870 in holdback that the dealer gets. they probably sold
you at around $1200 over their invoice, making them about $2k off the sell.
putting holdback aside, $500-$1200 over dealer invoice is a fair range for
sale price.

you could have negotiated the holdback out of the sale price, dealer most
likely would deny they get holdback, but don't be fooled, they do.

sorry guys.. i by mistake wrote 26500.. actually I am paying 27500.
and after reading this I think I am paying a bit more than the usual.
The dealer started with 28000 and I thought 27500 with cassette player
should be fine. But now I think I shud atleast ask for some more
accesories
thanks

of course the total price depends on what you got with the car. TL msrp'd
right at 33k, TSX was just about 3-3.5k less than TL at my dealer.

ping a bunch of dealers for quotes, see what they come back with. you have
to shop to get "your" price. these cars sell at market value so it's hard to
haggle alot. i got my TL with ground package, mud guards, and low lip
spoiler for 35.2k out the door. i shopped everywhere from NYC to CT to NJ to
PA.

i like to buy from the honest sales guy. ask about the holdback and see what
they say. most will try and cover that up some way some how. the very honest
ones will disclose it right up front then tell you holdback is
non-negotiable (that's being honest). some may knock off $100 or so from the
holdback, but most won't even acknowledge holdback. i'm not 100% on what
else the dealer gets, i'm a toyota guy and i know how toyota sells so i know
the other items to ask about.

does honda have VIR's (vehicle inquiry reports)?? for toyota they show
on-the-ground and allocated cars by VIN #, and show exactly what the dealer
invoice is.

it usuanlly takes me around 6 months to sign for a new car...

hope this helps.
