    @diva89 said: Brian125 - I'm looking to purchase a 2013 Honda accord exl v6 with navi. Currently located in the Rhode Island/ boston area. What's a good target price? Current dealer is listing car at MSRP 32,357.
    Also, I did receive a quote for a '13 Honda accord exl I4 with navi (dealer demo) for 26,487 and out the door price of 28,613 without flex cash but including destination charge. Isn't this a bit high for a late model car?
    What should be my target price if I want an i4 or an v6.. Please help.

    Your target price should be the same for what ever model your shooting for. You may need to travel over to one of the Boston honda dealers to make a better deal. I know of nobody who got deals like we seen in Boston over in R.I.... most members have traveled into Boston to buy.

    My advice:

    Try every dealer in R.I. first before considering Boston. Read my posts then send out Emails/ calls to each Internet sales manager or his team . You have nothing to lose. The day you are calling each dealership you put each dealership on the spot for the sale that moment. If 5 dealers tell you no to your asking price... your next question to each is How close can you get to my number for the sale today??. Let each dealer commit to some kind of price or AX them off your list. Remember your buying that moment and holding with a credit card deposit to show your serious.

    Any dealer that cant say Ms diva I will do 800 below invoice price not x is honest and thats how you get thru this process real quick. Thank dealer then tell him your number is what closes the deal today leave your number then move on to the next dealership. Once you call all your targeted dealerships you have some kind of price range for R.I or you have closed the deal. Know you sit back and wait a day or two if deal is not struck.. Dealers that want the sale will reconsider if they want the sale. As it gets closer to the last days of any month dealerships see there sales numbers and may have to consider selling cheaper to make there Monthly quotas. If you have to re-call dealerships at the end of the month offer your price again for the sale that day again or lower it a few dollars to close deal. This process is like a game of poker.. Never tip your hand to the dealer til you have to . Thats at the very end of the month last day if need be. Most folks always give in before the dealer.. I never do........ i'll wait til the last day and make dealer show his cards. I usually win with getting my price.

    For R.I. send out emails that you will buy your choice Accord, will finance thru there dealership and buy immediately for 1200 below invoice. Put that in every email . This will start the negotiation process. Doc fee's in R.I. are 200 +. So if you could strike a deal with a local dealer thats about 1k below dealers invoice to buy closer to your house. I would consider any number close to that target price. you may find getting your asking price impossible so then you need to reconsider. do i lower my asking price in R.i or do the same approach in boston. Have far you want to play this game to save extra $$$ is your choice.

    Boston dealers that folks have done well are Herb chambers, Weymouth, Honda cars of boston, Bosch to name a few. Re read post for other dealerships and postings.

    I considered the exact same scenario, I was tempted with a V6 but note it does come with a standard non-cvt transmission as well as lower fuel mileage (though on paper, not by too much). Drove a V6 and for my driving, didn't see any significant impact or changes so I stuck with a 4 cylinder...

    They do lose more in resale value (unless you're not planning to get rid of it anytime soon) but the price differences now isn't too much (~$1.2k more than a 4 cyl EX-L)

    @sebring95 said: The 4cyl is considerably more popular than the V6. The volume dealer near me has 270 Accord sedans in stock and only 42 are V6. Part of that demand I'm sure is that the V6 only comes in the higher end models so you obviously wipe out a lot of potential customers. But even if you look at resale values, the V6 loses a higher % over time. The V6 is much more powerful and comes with a regular (non-cvt) six speed auto which many performance oriented drivers prefer. Personally, my only reason for buying this type of car is to have something relatively cheap to pile on the miles....so fuel economy trumps performance.

    Wandl - yes all the vehicles I have emailed out are for 2013 exl. I didn't think the sales pricing would still be 26k. Jut received another quote from a dealer in NH for '13 exl v6 with navi of 26,970 without fees. I'm obviously doing something wrong. Lol. Thanks so much Brian for your response. I've actually been emailing dealers in NH and Mass. RI dealers do not have any more new '13 accords.

    Hello, I'm looking at a Honda EX-L V6 with or without Nav...the dealership quoted me $26900 on the one without the Nav. Is that a fair price? how much lower can I go?

    I went as low as 26.6k, which is what I bought at. A 2014 model.

    If anyone looking for pricing info on an EX-L in SF area, just bought one without financing: $25,387 plus $384 for registration/doc fees & 8.75% SF sales tax for total cost of $28,000. Am happy with the deal, thought price was fair and was hassle-free.

    Another Northern Virginia buyer here. Have been lurking since back in the winter. Thanks to Brian and all of the other posters in this thread for extremely valuable guidance. Prices seem to have come down over the last month, so I decided that this weekend was the right time to pull the trigger on a 2014 EX-L 4-cyl no nav:

    Purchase Price: $24,040 (inclusive of $790 destination and also including accessories -- dealer installed pro pack of trunk tray, door guards, wheel locks -- dealer list price for this package was $399 but I disregarded it for purposes of comparing offers since I was not interested in any accessories; they claimed the $399 was their cost from the manufacturer, but I am sure it is considerably less).

    Documentation Fee: $599 (high end of the range for dealers in this area)

    TTL: $1,105

    OTD Price: $25,745

    So total price before TTL was $24,640, which is right at $2,000 below invoice for this model (inclusive of the destination charge). This seemed to be in line with the better deals I've seen on this forum for the Virginia/Maryland/DC market.

    I ended up purchasing from Joyce Koons Honda in Manassas, VA. Connected with them through the PenFed Car Buying Service (same deal quoted by @Anddo20 earlier in the thread -- $24,109, but after fees, etc. that equated to an OTD price of just under $26k). I then emailed a half dozen dealers in the area. Those who responded with quotes were all in the OTD range of $25.8k to $26.2k, and I was able to use the lowest to get Koons to match and slightly beat, including the accessories. All negotiating, from initial emails to final purchase, was done over the course of the weekend.

    Dealer said they did not have any Flex Cash and had not had any since early in the month, but one of the competing offers did offer a $500 incentive for financing through Honda, which Koons matched. Did the 0.9% APR deal for 60 months through Honda Finance.

    I was able to short circuit any pressure to buy an extended warranty by getting an online HondaCare quote from the Honda dealers whose links are provided in this thread and in the other Honda forums. No way the dealer was going to be able to come close (it was $1.5k for 7 yr/100k miles with $100 deductible from the dealer, compared to $1k for 8 yr/100k with no deductible from the online quote). Even if you don't end up purchasing the extended warranty, I would strongly recommend at least getting the quote for leverage in fending off the sell job at the dealer).

    In the end, even though this seemed to be a really good deal based on the experiences described in this thread, I think there may have been even a little more room to push, but probably no more than a couple of hundred bucks. There seemed to be lots of really good deals to be had over Memorial Day weekend, and with this being the last week of the month (and approaching the end of the model year), dealers seem quite motivated to move 2014s right now. At some point, though, the perfect becomes the enemy of the good....

    Thanks again to all of you from this brand new member of the Honda club!

    Hi - hope to purchase 2014 EX-L V6/w Nav by the end of the week.. I have collected a few prices and hope to fall at 31,000. OTD. . Is this a good price? (quotes range from 27,500 - 28, 600 - without destination" Also, I was told if I took the honda financing they would increase the price by $500.00. Is this true? Would love to get 0.9 APR for 48 months.... Thoughts...

    Iklass,

    Invoice price on your model is 30,161 w dest/ charge. 1500 + below dealers invoice price makes a good deal. Negotiate right til months end for the best posible deal..

    Thanks to Brian and all the other posters for the awesome information on this thread. My search for 2014 Ex-L is still going on. I am in the Charlotte area and getting quotes around 25,500 before TTL. Dealers in the area have doc fee between 499 to 650.

    I am still waiting to see if any one can come down to 24,500 or better on the price. Looks like NC prices are higher compared to VA. I have an old car to trade in so I am trying to buy local so that I don't have to drive the old clunker 400 miles..

    Does any one have better pricing in the Charlotte/NC area? I have seen someone on a different forum post 24,900 in the Raleigh area.

    Thanks for all the inputs and help.

    Hello,

    Once I have established a deal by email with an agreed upon price out the door and sight unseen trade in value, what should I ask for to prevent the deal from changing once I get to the dealership?

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 3,190

    Try to get the Internet dept mgr. to give you the vehicle breakdown via email.// or speak directly to him about price before you go to dealership.. You will find alot of the floor salesman lying to you about price / leaving something out of the deal etc.

    I wish I had a nickel everytime someone posted in these forums how the sales guy lied about the numbers after getting to the dealership.. good luck

    So here's the deal I'm about the pull the trigger on

    2014 Accord sport CVT

    21700 out the door (no incentives, no rebates) with a 22000 trade in (so no tax in MD)

    Trying to negotiate down to 21500 as we speak..

  • davep21davep21 Posts: 1

    Been following this thread for a while now and wanted to thank everyone for there buying experiences, it has really helped me in my buying process.

    So I have been offered for a 2014 accord EX-L w Navi in the Chicagoland area--$25518 price before TTL and an out the door price of $28652. From reading others' experiences this sounds like a fair deal, however I think that I can go down further given the end of the month. How hard should I push and assuming that the out the door price holds, would it be a good deal for me to take as is? Thanks in advance!

    Success! 21500!

    So Brian, here's what was said in the final email exchange from the internet sales manager.

    " Talk to managers they will do the $10,076 sight unseen for your trade and on the road until 5/31. "

    that's 21500 for the car - 22000 for the trade + 10576 existing lien amount

    should i ask for anything more formal or is this good enough? It's a bit of a commute out to the dealership, and I have a home bound wife and 2week old newborn I don't like to leave for too long :)

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 3,190

    Make the deal if you feel your trade in on the BMW is fair. How much are you losing on this trade back? what was the dealers selling price of the new vehicle. exclude Taxes, Dmv and doc fee charges.

    21500 -790 destination - 275 Maryland fees - 200 doc fee = 20235

    The trade is above KBB and nada so yea, pretty happy with it.

  • idigggidiggg Posts: 7

    I finally pulled the trigger on the EX-L. one of the dealers offered 24,500 before TTL and gave a fair value for my trade in. Got the OTD to where I wanted.

    The EX-L (no Navi) has the propack (Trunk tray, mud guard, wheel locks), tinted windows.

    24,500 + TTL 808 + Doc fee 549 - tradein 1500 = OTD 24357.

    I may have made a hasty decision in buying the Extended warranty (7Yr/60Kmile) for 900 after an hour of haggling down from 1400. The coverage looked good and had 24Hr road assistance etc. I need something for buyers remorse :)

    Overall I am happy with the deal. Sales person was surprised that the manager approved the price. I told him my online peers will hold me accountable if I don't get good numbers and report back :)

    idiggg,

    Good job on your purchase . Please post the State and name of the dealership so others can try for a simular deal.

    Your warranty was purchased at a very good price. Most dealers will not sell that 7/60k for 900 dollars...................... Please post dealers name for us.. Enjoy your new ride

    There are 3 dealers that will sell that same warranty between 800 and 900 dollars . You can Compare online prices between all of them.. You might be able to knock a few more dollars off there online price depending on what plan you take. If you just bought a expensive service plan cancel it and buy from one of the below dealers.

    1- hyannishondacare.com

    2- saccuccihondacare.com

    3- curryhondacare.com.............. they will match above 2 dealers prices.

    Anyone have recommendations/prices for a Northern NJ dealer for an EX-L with Nav?

  • raf139raf139 Posts: 13

    Anyone able to shed information on dealer alotments? Looking for a Accord Coupe V6 6sp with nav. Black Or Grey. According to the dealer there are only 3-4 in the state of Florida. Is it better to wait until 15's to come out. They could get one of them for me. I prefer to have it shipped instead driven. What ballpark cost could be involved with shipping a vehicle? What's the invoice price for one of these?

    Hi, I'm in Maryland, and I'm looking for EX-L w/o Navi. I wanna share my homework #1.

    I checked the doc fee from Criswell, Bel air, Anderson, Heritage, Pohanka, and it was around $200. ($196~$200), and there is no flex cash available now. After checking 5 dealerships, I guess it might be almost the same for every shops. I got 10 quotes using edmunds, and the best one is 23,962 including freight fee until now.

    I guess it's time to take step 2.. :)

    Is there somebody in a similar situation in MD?

    There are several companies that will flat bed your vehicle to you. If the selling dealership cant provide one for you then read up / google the reviews from the online haulers. pick one with good feedback reviews.. You would want to buy your vehicle from a dealer in MD, DC, VA. GA. and have it shipped to you. Best prices are comming out of MD and VA right now.

    Pricing should be 500 to 800 dollars depending on the transporting location. Nationwide auto will transport a Honda accord from MD to Miami for $695 to give you a idea on pricing............... below are some more haulers.
