    Thanks Brian. I actually settled on a price with the Honda dealership today. A 2014 Honda Accord EX Coupe (Modern Steel) 4 cylinder with no extras for $24,786.09 OTD (TTL, 7% sales tax, 18.50 for 30 day temp plate, $180 Doc. fee). I even asked for seasonal floor mats at no cost and they said OK. I wanted to pay cash for the vehicle but if I financed through Honda at 0.9% for 36 months they threw in $500 flex cash. I asked my salesman about the financing and he said I could pay off the entire loan after the first month without penalty so that is what I am going to do.

    Thanks for your response. I think I got a decent deal.

    Brian, it seems to be difficult to get an honest answer when you call dealers asking about flex cash. This is not the first time it happened to me, but I called DCH in Oldbridge today and the sales person told me there was no flex cash this month. I pressed harder and she still said no flexcash was available. I told her it was March 5th and the dealers know whether or not Honda is offering it. Then I said the deal is not going to happen unless I get flex cash and all of a sudden she checked with the sales manager and flex cash was available. The same thing happened to another poster who bought in NJ last January. It appears as though they offer it on a discretionary basis, for example, they are more likely to offer it if the buyer pays more for the car as opposed to the buyer who is more aggressive with the price. Because notice Honda does not mention it on their website, but Toyota does(they call it subvention cash) and every buyer gets it. There has got to be a reason why the first thing they ask you is whether you are paying cash or financing. Just my two cents.

    mike,

    Make a list of every dealer you call. In state and out of state. We know from last month in NY/ NJ area Accords market area price range is at best 6 to 700 below invoice after you consider doc fee charges. This month here are your options:

    1= you buy for above price at months end trying to get a lower price deal and , or add flex cash of 500 to that number making your deal about 1200 below invoice.

    2= You buy out of state making your lowest price. prices are lower in M.D./ VA , etc.

    3- Choose a cheaper model vehicle if by months end 500 to 800 is making a big difference for you to buy.

    Here is the info you need to ask dealerships before you start to negotiate price. Your pricing inquirery is done next week by phone and email with your offer to buy after you collect below dealership info. from every one. There is no reason to collect info and negotiate. Its a 2 step process. Once your spread sheet is completed with dealer info you are armed and ready to play ball. This info first...................... ALL dealerships

    A-...Internet mangers name, email, and direct phone number. Or a associates number in the internet dept...... Do not deal with any floor salesman. Internet sales team only shooting for the manager to close deal with. NO, No NO FLoor salesman. you will waste your time as you learned from prior dealings.

    B-...Does your dealership have flex cash if i finance thru you. Its YEs or No... there is no other answer. If they cant answer that question hang up on them.

    C...What are your dealersips doc fee charges?

    After you collect your info from your 10 or 20 target dealerships Your armed and ready to negotiate.. Email and call each dealerships manager here in NY/NJ . You are to tell each dealership that at months end you will be buying your vehicle from a MD dealership there prices are lower. But you would consider taking less if a local dealership will match or meet your price of xxx below invoice plus flex cash cause you will be financing thru that dealership. Wait til the last week of this month then make your best deal with a local dealership or buy out of state to save a few dollars.. If no dealer prior makes a deal with you.

    Remember Emailing only gets you so far. At some point direct talks one on one negotiation has to occurr with the Internet managers... This will help weed out dealerships that are BS and dealerships that are ready to sell. X off the bad dealerships as you go and only deal with the dealerships that are internet friendly and are eager to sell to you.

    In NY and NJ you may start out with 20 dealerships and end up with only 5 or 6 dealerships competing for your business..

    Contact these dealerships again along with the rest of your dealerships.

    New Rochelle, Yonker, Friendly, Bayridge, Atlantic, Hunnington in.... NY

    Auto-sport , P. Miller, Joyce, Hamilton, DCh Academy, DCH Paramus, Madison, Burlington, Honda of Turnersville, Burns..... just a few to call in NJ

    I would reach out to all the above and start wacking them off one by one if they are lying or dont want to deal. Direct talks mike so they know you are ready to buy the day you make the phone call.

    Out of state dealerships that have been sellling alot cheaper than our area.

    Pohanka, Anderson, Sport, Criswell, to name a few.

    Good luck........... Mr MIke

    Purchased a 2014 Honda Accord EX Coupe from Brown Honda in Toledo, Ohio for $24,768.09 OTD. My salesman, Iain Frost, was really easy to deal with. We exchanged a few emails and he always responded very promptly. He answered all my questions and let me test drive the car twice. There was no pressure to purchase the "extras" and he is even letting me keep the car on the lot for 2 weeks until my current lease expires. He also threw in the all season rubber floor mats at my request.

    If you are looking for a Honda in the Toledo, Ohio area, I highly recommend visiting Brown Honda and talking with Iain.

    My wife and I bought a Honda Accord Sport at Brown's Honda City in Glenn Burnie, MD on February 28th.

    We shopped at a couple Honda dealers (we were also considering other models, so in all we dealt with a ton of dealers) and ended up getting the best deal by soliciting online offers from internet managers. Ironically, the salesman who closed are deal was very new and old-school (road in the back seat of our test drive, twice!) but we were there for the pricing, that's all. Dealing over the internet was very helpful - at Sport Honda we dealt with a floor manager who quoted us prices $2,000 and $1,000 over what we started with over the internet at Brown's.

    The car did come with some pre-installed extras (stripes, wheel locks, trunk tray, mud guards) that were factored into the price, but overall we paid $23784 OTD. TTL was $1590 ($200 doc fee, $1339 tax, rest were title taxes). We did not finance the car, so there was no flex cash involved.

    Good deal? We feel ok about it, but given all of the intricacies involved, I figured I'd ask the experts.

    Brian, even after signing on the dotted line you can still back out of a deal as long as you haven't taken delivery of the car. Once you drive off the lot - then the deal is done.

    Steve,

    Your Scenario isn't as easy as you think. But with not taken del. of vehicle may help you get over. Here is the flip side to that story.

    Dealer would have legal right to take you to court / whether they would win or not i dont know? Dealer would be able to mess your credit record up with a reported failure for payments. Imagine the headache of going to court getting sued for failure to take del/ payment of loan and having dealership tac on there legal fee's for your stupidity.

    Hopefully dealership wont go that route and you work something out.

    paradox,

    You negotiated a good deal Assuming your agreed selling price was 22,194 with dest charge. Puts you at 1031 below invoice. Thats after minusing dealers doc fee charges of 200.. plus your noted added accessories.

    Your deal in Maryland makes the folks in NY/ NJ area consider to make a trip down for the extra savings.. The flex cash would of made your deal a homerun if dealer had to give..

    Enjoy your new sport... Thanks for posting

    Hi everyone. I'd like to know whether I negotiated a good deal yesterday on a new 2013 Honda Accord Touring sedan. I went to Mahwah Honda in NJ, where I bought my '04 Accord. They had one new black/black 2013 Touring in stock (just like I wanted). I came armed with a $31,002 quote (inc. destination) for a 2014 model from another local dealer.

    Before I showed them the TrueCar price, they asked something like $32,500, which surely wasn't happening. I offered $27,000, which I knew was equally ridiculous, but I wanted to see what would happen.

    They came back at $30,900. Better, but not quite there. I got up to leave. They then (supposedly) called the owner. Final price was $30,000 flat after $400 Flex Cash, and they offered me $500 more than they were going to for my '04 trade-in, which had a blown transmission, needed a full paint job, and has two accidents on the driver's side from hit & run jerks. So, I'd like to think I really got the car for $29,500. B) I was also able to get .9% financing for 60 months on the 2013 model. It would've been 1.9% for 60 months on the 2014.

    So, did I do good? Should I have stayed with the 2014 or was I right to grab this beauty when I could? It looks like the only difference between the 2013 and 2014 models is an always on dimming rearview mirror in the 2014 (which is definitely NOT a plus), not to mention how long I might have to wait for the dealer to find a Touring in a desired color. This one called my name.

    zhelder: Great deal on an great car! Congrats!+++ That seems like an amazingly low price to me. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a price that low on a Touring. We'll see what our Accord buying "Yoda" Brian has to say....

    Hey Brian - how ya doing?

    Steve is correct - here in CA, the sale is not final until the customer has "taken possession" of the vehicle and driven off the Dealer's lot. I suppose the dealer could try to hold the buyer to his/her signed contract, but most won't even bother to go through that and risk all the possible bad press, reviews, etc.

    Take care,

    Bill

    Bill,

    I was getting worried not hearing from you in awhile.. Thinking maybe the gov't had you on a special ops. mission over sea's Pulled you out of retirement..... LOL

    Quick story on my 2013 EXL V-6 Accord:

    Bought my Accord Feb, 28th 2013..... Paid $ 775 below invoice price. Dealer threw in splash guards, wheel locks, and 3 free oil changes. Had no problems with car Outside of radio cutting off at times which dealer upgraded software. Had a little shuddering at low speeds but seem to stop. Gave car to my daughter 3 months ago with 2,500 miles. Her present for all the hard work she put into finishing her college master/phd up in Boston. Seems the Accord was leaking oil so she bought it to dealership in Boston. Dealer found no problem said to bring back after 100 miles..... Keep forum posted.

    Researched online and got couple of good e-price ranging from 26K-27K from Dealers near Boston. After negotiating with couple of dealers.... one of the dealers agreed to for $24,700 before taxes/title for 2014 Honda Accord EX-L CVT. Dealer also included $500 flex cash for financing thru Honda so basically I paid $24,200 for the car.

    srijal,

    Post dealership you purchased at so the other members can try to get a simular deal.

    If your price of 24, 700 included the dest charge you have the lowest price so far this year on a 2014 accord. Even with dest charge not included in your mentioned deal puts you at 1160 below invoice price plus 500 flex making a very good deal. Most dealerships doc fee's in boston are 300 dollars.

    Are you aware how low of a price you got below invoice?? Unless you made a mistake you pulled off a monster deal at 1950 below invoice plus the 500 flex on top.. There was a poster who bought a 2013 left over touring model last week for more than your 2014 model.

    I think Mike 372 is going to be very happy w/ a deal like this.

    Accord exl w dest charge = 26,650

  • mike372mike372 Posts: 354

    $1950 below invoice PLUS 500 flex cash. I dont buy it. There must have been a trade involved or something else involved, ie military rebate,college grad rebate,etc. Again, you cannot believe every poster here on edmunds. Most, yes but not all.

    There was another poster from maryland who made a good deal a few up from these last posts.. Check out his numbers and where dealer is located in MD. Dealerships closer to I95 make a easier transaction if your driven.

    Alright i am a newbie here, but just skimming through the posts - good stuff here especially for someone like me planning to buy an accord in the next month or so. thanks guys who keep this forum ticking. so here is my question. I live in central nj and willing to drive ~100 miles if there is a good deal. I am planning to buy a 2014 EX-L(no navi). what would my target price range for bargaining should be? I saw somebody posted $24450 OTD. So keeping a target of around $25k-$26 realistic? does the pricing depends on the inventory - like do we still have bargaining flexibility if the wifey likes a certain color? Also I saw on the dealership sites that 2013 Accords are almost on par with 2014 pricing. I thought 2013s should be a tad cheaper than 2014? thanks for being patient with my ton of questions...

    As a true buyer who has purchased a 2014 EX-L, the fluctuation of prices beyond what large dealers like AutoNation (who get volume discount) provide are very skeptical. Small dealers just don't have the financial ability to sell a 2014 EX-L at $24,200 or $24,450 OTD. They would lose a lot of money on the deal. Larger dealers who purchase in bulk (AutoNation) have set prices based on certain region, and they sure will not deviate in taking a loss for selling a car every transaction. So, from a real purchaser, I would take all those so-called outrageous or once in a life time deal as an Ocean Front Property in Arizona.

    srijal, you stated that you got an e-price in the range from 26K-to-27K, and you negotiated to $24,200(including flex). I don't know or ever heard of anyone negotiating that low from an internet quote. That's 10% below an internet e-mail quote.... Totally unheard of unless it was a demo.

    Some folks don't understand that OTD means the base price plus all taxes and fees so they call the base price they paid OTD. If that's the case here, the 24.2k or 24.45k is feasible.

    Edit button didn't work - I'll just add that maybe we should just ask what they paid for the car including all taxes and fees (even though we don't need that info unless we live in their same location).
