Hi new member on this site but have been reading a lot of info as i'm looking at a 08 tsx sooo here's the rundown

$15500
2008 TSX 6 speed w/navi
109000km or 67700miles
Local car 1 owner off lease

Car is very clean no scratches every thing works on the inside radio windows interior lights etc. The car feels solid and firm on the freeway no weird noises or clunks in suspension

Brakes are good front appears to have new calipers installed along with rotors rear rotors are a bit rusty but can go for about another 8-10 months rear calipers looking ok

Tires have about 75 % tread left no scratches or curb rash on rims freeway speeds has no vibrations

Transmission shifts smooth no grinding in reverse or any gear for that matter clutch grabs nicely with no signs of slipping

Engine wise is where i get questionable there seems to be an oil leak on the front right side of the engine just below the valve cover i'm hoping its just the gasket there was no leaks under the car the oil is very clean although most likely they just changed it

Soo i was thinking of purchasing the vehicle based on an Acura inspection with any problems repaired for $15500 the dealer has agreed to take it to an Acura dealer for inspection and repairs based on findings free of charge

What would you do?!:dunno::dunno:

any ideas would be great help thanks

Just got off the phone with the dealer the car goes to Acura tomorrow and due to holidays i might not get the inspection results until Wednesday or Thursday :(

im really just hoping there isnt a major problem other then a valve cover gasket or the odd bushing cause it does seem like a nice deal for a clean car..

Seems pretty reasonable for a Canadian car. I've seen 2006s in Vancouver with that kind of mileage going listing for that kind of money.

That's a very good price for a 08 navi 6mt especially if the carfax is clean. Those usually go for around $18-$19k here although I would be a bit concerned that it was a lease car. People who lease cars usually don't take good care of them as they would if they owned the car.

You make a good point about the lease, could explain the oil leak hopefully its not too bad once acura looks under the hood. Because the way its looking is this deal is riding on acura's findings

Yea as long as a reputable mechanic/dealer inspects the car and the carfax is clean, then I say it is a awesome deal.
