Acura Offering Some Great Incentives
Among these are special lease deals, low-interest loans, and factory-to-dealer rebates.
The cash rebates are being given to dealers to help speed up sales of the older 2009 models by lowering prices for consumers. What's unique about the program is that it allows combinations of the cash rebate with low-interest loans. This results in a big cost savings for customers - not a bad deal for a luxury car.
Here are the details on the new incentives:
Acura MDX - $2000 dealer rebate; 1.9% APR loan rate for 24/36 months and 2.9% for 60 months; special lease deal available for the Base model.
Acura RDX - $1500 dealer rebate; special lease deal for 2010 RDX Base model.
Acura RL - $3000 dealer rebate; $2000 dealer rebate and special lease deal for 2010 RL.
Acura TL - $2000 dealer rebate and low interest loan rates (1.9% APR for 24/36 months and 2.9% for 60 months); same APR rates for 2010 TL.
Acura TSX - $1250 dealer rebate; two special lease deals for 2010 TSX.
These deals are good only through November 2, 2009.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
