Old Accord platform which did not age well. if it's the V6 with the clunky 9 speed good luck - the new 2021 TLX is redesigned from the ground up and does not feel like a gussied up Honda.

What do you mean by not age well? Rust? Mechanical problem down the road?

I'm not sure why one would lease a used car for $633/mth when you can lease a new one at $100/mth more per month (at 3% and 0 discount).

And OP, if you are leasing a used car, what's the mileage left? Is this a FWD A-Spec or SH-AWD A-Spec?

If it's a SH-AWD A-Spec at 40k km or below, the only deal you get is a 0% loan. If it's a FWD A-spec, then this is a bad deal.

That’s a waste of money, you’re better of just buying a used one. These depreciate like crazy! Not worth it OP. PM me if you have any further questions, just helped one of my friends buy a 2017 TLX a couple months ago and she got a great deal and loves it.

It's a used car right since you said mint condition? So again what attract you to this? Is it the monthly payment? Why don't you want a 2021 model for $100 more (less if you can bargain for discount and/or qualify for loyalty)?

Also, if you are paying $633/mth including all taxes, that means you are paying $36K for this car while there are ones for less:

Like I said, you got no deal here other than 0% loan. For this to be a good deal, you are looking at $520-550/mth. or if there is extended bumper to bumper warranty til 2025 or something like that, not just tire and rim warranty.

I think it mean lease take over plus possibility to buy back after lease.

0% perhaps sounds interesting, but you have to look at what kind of deal he initially got. If he lease the car at MRSP but 0%, that is still a bad deal.

You pay TAX on the buyback value, plus safety plus dealer admin fee to buy back.

Do your math to see if it is better off just to buy a used 2019 TLX or a lease a brand new one.

Tinded Windowed can be done outside at $250, Rims and Tires protection package could be a waste of money and just adding up cost to the lease payment.

Meaning it is a platform that is old - old tech

The only thing that didn't aged well is the plasticky dash and low res dual screen set up. But it's at least it's CP and AA capable.

If you are looking at a reliable used car, it's actually a decent choice. Just not at OP's price.

i wouldn't pay that much to lease a used car. a 2021 shouldn't be much more, Acura usually has big discounts during March and April. Also '21 TLX has slimmed down and looks even more sporty. Saw it in person over the weekend.

That car at times were offered with 5k+ rebates before discounts, it wasn't even worth $38k brand new! Don't even go back to the same stealership.
