Sales are very regional. I spoke to a dealer in Florida who originally said he could ship to New York on a Mazda CX5. His prices sounded good and they are, I would have taken them but when he put in the New York promotions it was the same as what I could get here which was not exciting.
As he said he needs12k and for each step up that adds about $5-15 a month or more depending on brand (just priced a Honda it is priced at $.10 per mile ahead of time, Acura may vary, you have to ask, it is a number on the deal sheet that they may or may not show you). Finally the deal you posted is $280 plus tax, so that at minimum is $310 (guessing on tax, could be less) which is a nice deal sure but when you add in the additional miles (which I calculate at $37.50 per month without interest but you need to know the actual amount, I am speculating) it increases quite a bit,doing this on the back of an envelope, so do the math comparing Cal tax to NJ and the mileage. The So Cal may actually be equivalent but poster needs to do the math.
I have not really priced Acura, just spent 20 minutes at the dealership and this is what I walked out with and I did not follow up. Also, in metro NY it is more difficult than usual to get cars. I have walked into at least two dealerships in the last week, not Acura, one of whom really tried to sell me a car two years ago when I was shopping and came close to the best deal (ended with a different brand) who basically said they were not interested in my business if I was looking for a deal (my words not theirs) because someone else will buy it next week at a better price. One deal was on the Rogue which will also be restyled next month (I don’t care, buying transportation not prestige). Contacted a dealership that I bought from two years ago, high volume, they have not even gotten back to me on a lease price on a RAV4 and it has been since the beginning of the week and I am a repeat customer. And I really needed to buy a car before this weekend which I did, yesterday, obviously not there! So I was not going into the dealerships only to shop
