2007 Tlaxcala type

I need some help from you guys. I found a 07 tls type with 58000 original miles lady owned and 1 owner. 6 speed manual. Itís my wifeís cousin and she needs to sell it.So my question is sheís wanting $10000 for it and it books for less than that. So what would you guys do? I know it can be a little rare but not sure on the price. Thanks!!

Generally "book" has no reference in manual pricing. Color combo?

doesn't matter what the color combo is for that price and mileage.
if its in good condition and maintained regularly, give her 9k and bring it home.
its a steal at that price (if the above is all good)

If you can get her to 9K it'd be better since you could use the extra 1K for timing belt waterpump service if not done. If it's done give her 10K and be very happy!

If TB/WP is done and it isn't all beat up inside and out I would pay 10k in a heartbeat. That's a steal! Post pics when you get it!

What folks are trying to tell you is the car is an absolute steal for that price; buy it now and if you don't, I will.

No, do it now. 7 years or 105K which ever is first.

The 7-year time frame is no longer valid. Per Honda and Acura Owner's Manuals since the mid 2000s, the only replacement interval is 105,000 miles.

Do it for piece of mind and should, for the most part, have issue free 100k miles if you don't drive it hard! But it is hard not to push the pedal thru the floor...

I know!! I really donít need the car but if itís rare I like to keep it. Iíve always been a Honda/Acura fan. On my fourth accord now. My 02 accord v6 3.0 auto runs peppy for what it is just curious how the tls will compare to it as in speed.

Funny thing, I moved directly from a 2001 V6 Accord into a 2006 TL 6-Speed, so I have a pretty good idea on how to answer your question. Simply put, the TL Type-S will flat suck the doors off the Accord in literally every performance metric.

Well, depending upon which publication you look at, 6MT version of the Type-S are something like 5.7 seconds to 60; I've seen a few reports which suggest if you really do a clutch drop and hold on to the steering wheel for dear life, 5.4 is possible.

Personally, I don't drag race, but coming out of toll booths and blasting up on-ramps shows my 2006 is quicker than most cars on the road. A V8 Mustang (or any other pony car you care to mention), or say a BMW 340i will pretty much suck the doors off a TL, but then again, different classes of cars.

I laugh every time when I heard "Book value", during my past 2 transactions I had to told potential buyer if you value by the "book" why not just buy a car from that "book" instead. its a used car so the price will have wild swing in price along with your geographic location as well.

as far octane gas goes, just put water into the tank, its free and it environmental friendly.

My commute is basically 90% hwy.
On average, I get 8L/100km (that's 29mpg!)

A full tank, if I really really push it, I can get 720km per tank (as per the MID which is pretty accurate I find).
600km a tank is easily achieved.

I'm super happy lol

My typical 60/40 highway/city daily commute typically ranges from a low of 26 mpg in the winter to a high of 29 in the summer. The best open road trips I've taken averaged up in the 35 mpg range which in turn yielded a range of about 550 miles for a tank.
