    I am looking to purchase the Accord V6 Sedan..this month .

    Drive the 15 miles up Route 17 to Mahwah Honda. I had an experience with DCH several years ago when I helped my brother buy a used car. We looked at cars at DCH, when some guy in a trench coat literally appeared out of the shadows. After following us around for several minutes and giving us the heebie-geebies, he told us he was "Mr. X" (don't remember his name) and he was the used car manager. Used car manager?!? I thought we were going to be robbed by him. After giving us prices on several cars and a business card, we knew he wasn't lying. Yikes.

    Both of my experiences at Mahwah Honda were positive, especially this last one buying my '13 Touring last week. The salesmen were friendly and low pressure. I used a True Car quote from DCH Honda as leverage in negotiating, and they said to me, "You can go there if you want, but they're going to play games with you." I knew they were right, but of course I couldn't say anything while negotiating. Mahwah was upfront about everything, and didn't play games with me. While I probably could have gotten a slightly better deal by e-mailing a bunch of dealers, I was over a barrel since my '04 Accord blew its transmission and I had to make a quick decision. Despite the fact they the salespeople knew this since my old car was sitting in their repair shop immobile, they gave me a fair deal on a great car.

    @Emma Is yours a Accord Sedan EX or CRV EX ?

  • emma27emma27 Posts: 15
    @shaileshp The 22,500 was the price before TTL. It's a 2014 Accord EX sedan. CVT means automatic.
  • emma27emma27 Posts: 15
    The 22,500 included destination.

    Thanks emma. The lowest quote I've received so far is 22650+TTL for EX CVT, still under negotiation phase. Looking at you earlier post you mentioned somewhere previously that you're looking for Honda CRV EX, so I got confused with model, clear now :). Congrats on your new car!

    Want to thank everyone for their posts esp. Brian. I think I did alright as I picked up my Accord SE this weekend. Here is the breakdown. Vehicle including doc fee and dest. - 21,971, less the 500 flex cash. Had them throw in all season mats at no charge. This was in NJ at Autosport which I highly recommend. Great car btw and great value.

    You're right. We were looking at CRVs but finally decided on the Accord.

    That's a gr8 price..if i am not mistaken its close to 2k below invoice !

  • mike372mike372 Posts: 354

    jay jay....which model Accord did you get at Autosport. What is an Accord SE. I dont think anyone will get an Accord at Autosport for 2000 less than invoice based on my phone calls with the internet mgr. Did you trade a car? Its just not going to happen, even with flex cash.

    What accord SE ?

    Read yesterday's posts.

  • I live in Los Angeles area and am planning to purchase 2014 Accord EX coupe CVT soon. Can anyone share their price paid and buying experience around southern California. I saw someone in this forum purchased his 2014 Accord EX coupe CVT in March for $21,700 +TTL. Is this a good deal?

    The Accord ex cvt coupe's invoice with destanation charge = 24,716. At 21,700 that price would be near impossible for a 2014. Re check your numbers.

    Its hard to find certain posts on back pages with edmunds new web design these posts have no numbers so its alot harder to find old posts. There were 2 poster who made deals for about 1000 below on your models invoice price. Go back and find posts..

    If you could get a similar deal and get dealers flex cash of 500 for financing vehicle thru honda ................ you will have made a very good deal..

  • Brian125, thanks for your advise. This thread was posted on March 5, page 18 by Eastwest30. I think he got this deal because he was eligible for an additional $500 college grad rebate. Do you think $23,000 + TTL is reasonable price as starting point for negotiation.

    Not a straight out deal of 1716 below invoice.. If you get some help with flex and college money. I think its very do- able then.. Your model is limited on dealership lots which in return leads to a higher selling price.

    Hi! I'm new here and have learned quite a bit the last couple of days reading the threads. I'm currently looking at a 2014 Accord LX CVT sedan in North Louisiana. I've got a price (including the $790 destination fee) of 20, 164.76. Fees and taxes for my area would put the out-the-door price at $22,212. Does this seem like a fair shake or should I keep looking around?

    Also, the dealership has a certified 2013 LX with only 9K miles and they want $21,3xx for it but said they won't budge on price. The upside to that one is it comes with 100K powertrain warranty.

    Advice? I've never owned a Honda and the first and only time I've bought a car was 11 years ago and it was a no-haggle Saturn (which is still going at 205,000 miles!).

    Thanks!

    ekb,

    The 2014 lx cvt is a good buy at 1456 below invoice. Tell the dealer to keep there 2013 model with 9k miles. That is no deal and no loss at that price.. A 2013 used Accord should be 3000 to 4500 off the orignial Invoice price or that is not a good buy or investment in a vehicle.

    If dealership has not already added flex cash of 500 dollars to your good price see if they have flex cash to give if you finance vehicle thru them..

    brian, thanks so much for the reply. I'll shoot them an email about the flex cash and see where it gets me.

    I have an offer for a 2013 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan from a dealership in South Florida. Car price is $23,286.36 plus TTL and doc fee of $699, for a total out the door price of around $25,800 or so. This includes $500 flex cash. Is this good for a 2013 at this point, which the dealership has 18 of them on their lot. I think they can do better, but not sure at this point.

    2013 invoice w dest charge =..............26,399

    minus dealers offer.............................23,286

    total.................................................- 3,113 below invoice price

    minus doc fee of 699...................... -699

    Total below invoice.............................2,414 below invoice.

    This is not a good deal .. 3000 below is the lowest price you should consider. If i'm buying this car i want 4000 off to even consider buying a 1 year old model . In the event of a stolen vehicle or you total this car in a accident what do you think the Ins. company is giving you for a 1 yr, 4 month old vehicle. this is the difference you need to make up in money from the dealer. Otherwise buy a 2014 model accord that is selling for 1000 to maybe 1500 off invoice price with flex cash..

    Wow, what a wealth of information here, so happy to have found this forum, and to be on board. Just have begun the quest for a 2014 Accord, hopefully an EX-L. Live near Baltimore, but willing to travel a little... as I see many of you have done. Had to go to the dealer yesterday to launch our search, as we needed to test drive. So glad to know to know that there is another option when we finalize this sale- the internet and the phone. Thanks for all of your wonderful posts, and thanks in advance for any tips you may give me.

    Skip65, buying a vehicle should be a pleasant experience.. But it is not...... with all the dealership nonesense of lies, confusing prices , bait and switch tactics, etc.. Lucky for you your area has some of the better dealerships selling accords at prices we'd love to see in the North East.. Dealerships like Pohanka , Criswell to name a few.. Do your research and tell all your visited dealerships you will be testing other vehicles you have not decide on what car you may want. Test drives and negotiations are done on different days. Read thru my prior posts making a list of dealerships to call for your info dealers doc fee charges and availability of dealership flex cash . 2 important pieces of info needed before you decide on a target price to buy..

    Once you know the exact model, colors, and options if any you are ready to buy. If your credit is not good find outside finance approval 1st , Call your INs company ahead of time for a INS quote and get numbers where to fax dealership paperwork. Being prepared is the key with pricing , knowing how and when to buy is key in making the best possible deal. If you have a high volume dealership near you drive by and see how many accords are on his lot.. Supply is a very good thing for the consumer.. Let the internet work for you getting intial prices and letting each dealership know what model you want to buy , what price gets your business..

    Sounds like fun.......... good luck

    Thanks so much for the breakdown Brian. It is much appreciated. I am going to try and get them down more as I can wait and see if any more cars are sold this month and see if they start to get desperate next month.

    All,

    Just bought a Honda Accord EXL Non Navigation from Hendrick Honda, Woodbridge, VA yesterday. I must say it was a pleasure dealing with them! Drove 80 miles from Richmond after work, and it was worth it! I just talked to Brad the Sales Guy once on Phone, finalized the price, and there were no surprises when I stepped in!

    Total OTD price was $26100, included all taxes registration, Processing, Tags! For the icing on top, the car came pre-installed with Trunk Tray, Wheel Locks, All weather Mats, Paint protection, Door Edge Guard.

    And did I tell you that they offer life time Powertran Warranty on all their new cars?

    I have researched and talked to atleast 7-8 other Honda dealers in Metro Richmond Region, and No one was even close to meet their price.

    All said and done, i was out of the Dealership with my new car in less than 2 hours :).

    I am extremely happy with my purchase, and would highly recommend the dealer! When I had a big confusion with the financing, Tariq was patient enough to go over with all the details meticulously.

    Good Luck to all!

    @Brian125- Thank you so much. I have been reading up on these boards all evening, and taking notes. Finding this site made my day, and it will probably take up most of my tomorrows, until I get my car. Thanks for the helpful info in your response, too. This is great.

    Would appreciate advice about the "end of the month" car buying timeline. Ready now to buy an Accord, and kind of anxious to get started, however I have been reading here that buying on the last two days of the month would give me a definite edge. OK, so is NOW too early to start asking for competitive bids online? The last day of March is on a Monday- would the Friday or Saturday before be better days to make my actual offers? Afraid that if I wait until Monday, I might be cutting it too close. And one more thing. I've been reading about the $500 flex cash, and that it can run out. Even given that, is it better to wait until the very end of the month? Thanks in advance for your thoughts / advice on this.
