Default price on rl

Went to acura dealer, and they are trying to close out the 2004
rls. Price was 37000 even, my choice of vehicle. They would even order one
for me, if one was available.
Went to another acura dealer, and they offered same deal, as long
it was on lot(they had six of them). They also had one demo with 9,000 miles
and offered for 35000.
Sticker is 46000. plus Checked on edmunds, and this seems like
way below invoice. What am I missing here, or is this a good deal?

Thanks

It's a great deal. But they're moving them out because the new RL is a
completely redesigned and superior car (my dealer quoted me $47K-50K today,
pricing hasn't been finalized) and they have to move the old RLs out. All
depends on what you want to pay, what you have to spend, and what matters to
you. Acura's a great car no matter which choice you make. Good luck.

New RL is 300hp vs. about 260 or so in the 2004.

The obvious answer is simply that NEW totally redesigned RL's come out soon
and the 04's must go. The resale on the 04 RL in the future will reflect
that it is old design and be lower by approx same that you save now. So it
really only matters if you are happy with the current RL design and can
accept that the newer design will beout there soon.

I bough the 04 TL in March ( love this car ) and did look at the 04 RL in
showroom that already being well discounted. I love the interior but found
it felt like it had less room than the TL. TL felt must more comfortable to
me ( 6'2" 200lbs ) room wise. I am looking forward to seeing and checking
out new RL design, looking for possible 06 purchase as I trade every two
years basically.

Also love the '04 TL - agree with the interior room BUT they sure used up
the trunk space! They need to address this!

The '04 RL only has a puny 225hp engine. If you are going to spend $ 35k,
I'd go for the TL. In my opinion, I do not see why anyone would by an '04
RL, w/ a smaller engine & bland looks for anything close to what they are
asking when you can get the TL w/ NAVI for under $ 35k.

If I could afford it, I'd get the '05 RL in a heart beat.

The only reason that the TL has higher hp is because it revs faster.
The amount of torque, which matters most (in my opinion), is not much
different. 238 for the TL vs 235 for the RL. So unless you are going
to redline a lot, you will not see much of a difference.

I too will be looking at the 06 RL... in 09!

Unless I win the lottery.

This is true. My last car, an '01 BMW 530i was rated at only 225hp,
but had much greater torque and a very flat torque curve. It really
makes a difference.

Art,

Funny I have found that trunk isn't as bad as I first thought. I load a
couple of large hard sided 29" suicases that are extra wide twice a year.
Used to be able to put them side by side in Maxima. just knew that was not
going to happen with TL. For heck of it before packing after just getting TL
I took empty suitcases to car to " play " with trunk. I was pleasently
surprised to find that I could indeed still load both into TL albeit a
diffenrent configuraton. Instead of side by side ( not even close ) one in
flat and second ( I was shocked ) standing flat and up like it would be
placed next to you on wheels in line if I get that across right. Trunk is
deep enough and lid squared enough to allow truck to close with no problem.
Agreed that always nice to have more trunk space but actual design, trunk
height and hinges covered in trunk help. By that I mean that trunk hinge
area clearly defined since they are housed in their own surrounded metal. No
loading then trying to close and hinge hitting something. If you got it in
then hinge won't stop you.
