That sounds great, that's almost exactly what I paid in Connecticut. Just make sure they don't stick in any little fees. If that's what you were quoted, you should pay that, plus tax, period. :)

according to edmunds.com the invoice of auto 05 TSX is 24,784, that plus 570 destination charge is equal to 25,354 since I got the quote of 25,371, they only make 17 dollars? or is there a catch to this?

That's where I bought my TSX...they gave me $1285 off last January. All I know is Weir is new, gives free car wash, free loaners...so I would buy from them...I don't know about Thomas.

There is already a 3% dealerhold back padded into the invoice price...so even if you pay invoice, they are already making something like $800

so that means the real invoice is 800 off the invoice?

well you can look at it that way yes, but I suppose the real invoice would be the price the dealership buys the car from Acura right?...but the dealer will NEVER negotiate with their hold back money. Dealer hold back is to ensure they always make some type of profit to pay for building/dealership maintenance/salaries etc. Anything over invoice is pure profit for salesman and dealership. Hold back is normal for all cars, and all brands...although some holdbacks go greater than 3%

but you can still use it as a bargaining tool...just bring up the fact that they are already making $800 on the dealer hold back, so even if they sell to you at invoice they are still making a profit.
alot of dealers will say If they are selling at invoice they make no money...just don't ask to go lower than invoice.

what about it ? everyone pays it. should not be part of the negotiation.
Why ? is it unreasonable ?

it should be the standard $570 (I think) across the board. this is non-negotiable, and it should not be any higher or lower based on location.
