    Excellent information Brian. I did not quite follow as I just now starting reading the Edmunds forums. I have used Edmunds a lot but not the forums. I did purchase a vehicle on June 30th, which as you stated, buying at the end is a good idea. Here is what I did:

    I started out on truecars and that send it out to 3 honda dealers. I contacted 2 more dealers to get pricing starting with the trucars cost. I was looking for LX CVT. I got back a couple of offers and started talking. I ended at Joyce Koons Honda in Manassas. I feel good about the price and deal. $18,330 price $804 tax + dealer fees, tags.. $20,323 OTD price $960 - 6yr 120k Honda care. I got a quote from Curry Honda, they did not like the price when I asked if they could match it. During the signing, the extended warranty paper work came up with them matching price. He said they took a loss to match, ya ok but glad they did. I have 100k in 3yrs on my Focus so wanted to extra protection. I got 0.9% for 60months I also got free oil changes for life, Trunk Tray, Door guards, wheel locks.

    So the wife has the focus and I have the Accord :)

    Your deal is 1398 minus the 250 doc fee. I think there is more room to negotiate. I would go anyway to see what there best offer is on your trade and to try and lower the new vehicle sale price. . Dealer may not want to lower there price. It is the beginning of the month. I think 500 to 700 is what you should be trying to get off this deal by months end. We are into July already. Might need to walk out tomorrow but letting this dealer know what price gets the deal done. They will come back with a counter offer in the coming weeks... let them fester on it.

    You need to get more dealerships involved in pricing . A trade and buy is a hard transaction if your trade is a vehicle dealers feel they cant sell.

    A lot more room to negotiate in this deal. First off on all those added accessories they are slamming you for. Negotiate another 500 dollars off those prices. A Remote Starter pay no more than 400 dollars, Splash guards are 60 dollars, door sill trim is 100 dollars , Dimming mirror invoice is about 200 dollars if that. @collegehills Honda parts sells that mirror for 226. See how dealer is getting you. This is your negotiating room in this deal.

    Oil changes for 100. Come on dealer should be throwing in 2 for free. Are you kidding me. That needs to be taken off the price . Your buying a new car not oil change services.. My God these dealers are slimy.

    Your original deal without accessories added is 1603 below dealers invoice price minus 399.50 for doc fee's bringing you to 1203 below invoice.

    Call this dealer tell them knock off 500 dollars off this deal, give me the 2 oil changes for free. { or remove that item from the bill } and you will buy said vehicle Today. Otherwise make him find you the model and vehicle without all those items, Or buy vehicle elsewhere. Let dealer sit and wait on YOUR offer while you go shop around for a better deal minus those accessories.

    Please go back and read my prior posts to educate your self on buying and how to get the best deal. Your only saving on the added accessories not vehicle price.

    ^ looks like those oil changes are $1.00 not $100.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,746

    lol.. I guess after that accessories spanking a couple of 1 dollar oil changes sounds human.

    Hi all.

    New to this forum, glad I found it as I've found a lot of great info here. I have one question for the experts, forgive me if this has been specifically covered in one of the 40+ pages of the thread that I haven't had a chance to read yet.

    I was thinking of trying to get a lease deal done on an Accord in the next few days since their current financing deals last until July 7th. Based on reading some of the posts here, it looks like I started a day or two too late since I would have gotten a better deal on the price at the end of June. I don't need to have a car until early August, so I don't have a problem waiting until the end of July to try to get a better deal. My question is, is there a chance that the financing would change significantly enough by the end of this month that I would get a better deal now for say $500 more than I might pay at the end of the month with different financing? I'm new to the lease game so I'm unfamiliar with if the terms really change after the "holiday deals" are over in terms of the MF and residuals. Thanks for any help.

    aj28,

    There is 750 cash incentive if you lease a Accord. . July 7th, is the last day for the cash incentive. On July 8th, Honda will most likely continue this cash incentive, If not your out the 750. I personally think Honda will continue this incentive. They need to sell cars.. There competition i.e.; Toyota , Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, Kia are discounting heavy right now.

    Same rules apply whether you lease or buy. Negotiate the lowest sale price of the vehicle and have dealer run the correct Residual, money factor, etc. Roll all the fee's into the lease including the taxes making 36 equal payments. This will help you if vehicle is totaled or stolen. You wont lose any of Your money.

    Your target price to lease or buy should start at a very minimum 1200 below dealers invoice to as high as 2k. below. This all depending on your area and supply and demand on dealers lots.

    Waiting till months end would net you a few more dollars off vehicle.

    Brian Thanks for the insight, I will ask for 500 off of the price but I'm confused it says 2 year oil changes so does that mean only 2 oil changes or 2 years worth?

    Suggested manufactures' oil changes are 7,500 plus depending on your driving conditions. I'm old school on this one.

    I'd rather be safe than sorry. I like to change my Oil every 6 or 7 months or 5k with the newer cars. Older cars I would do it every 3k. Oil changes are so inexpensive and I cant tell when my oil is actually breaking down.

    If I was leasing and the dealer told me once a year then I would do just that. I'm just renting that vehicle and giving it back... I could care less its under warranty while I own it.

    With the 750 dollar off old offer makes this a Good deal...... Now your buying vehicle for about 1450 below invoice and all those accessories are very close to invoice price.

    I'm looking for a EX-L (w/o Nav). Anyone has experience with Kansas city area dealers? What is a good price for this one? I have a quote for $25600 including all fee (excluding taxes, title etc).

  • acco14acco14 Posts: 2

    I have a better deal now, $24750 including all fee

  • snoopye24snoopye24 Posts: 1

    Brian, thanks for all the great insight you've provided, and thanks to everyone else who has shared there experience too! I purchased my 2014 Sport yesterday from Mossy Honda in Lemon Grove, my Sales Rep was Bailey. My sale price was $21,500 that included the destination charge and a $500 military rebate, even though I was financed through Navy Federal Credit Union. $1,758 sales tax, $80 doc fee, $18 CVR, $248.75 standard fees. In addition I received free splash guards, wheel locks, and trunk mat. Total price before I purchased the Honda Care was $23,604.75.

    While speaking with the finance person, I told him I was having second thoughts on my 2009 DTS trade-in with and that I thinking of pulling out, he then said what could be done to close the deal right now? I said add another $500 to my trade-in, match the Honda Care Plan and maintenance plan that I was quoted with Saccucci Honda, and lastly I want the vogues tyres and chrome rims swapped out from my 2009 DTS onto my 2006 DTS. He had a hard time betting quotas from Saccucci, but he came close enough, but he had to get another sales person concerning my request for rims and tires. So in walks a male sales person, Bailey is a lady, who ask the condition of the rims of my 06 DTS and I told him I hadn't checked them since I just purchased the car from Phoenix the day before. He agrees to swap them out, so after going home to get my 06 DTS he's like "the tires aren't all the same and 2 center caps are missing". "I'm like I guess you all will have to order the center caps and place new tires on the car. That's what happens when you try to low-ball my trade-in." There was no way I'm letting them keep $4,500 rims and tires. All in all, I'm a very happy person! Bailey is good people, highly recommend her over the others I spoke with.

    Thanks Brian. I have done a fair bit of research (and have read through about 40 of the 50+ pages in this thread so far) but I haven't done enough homework to move on a car today so I will hope the incentive gets extended. The guys in the lease forum have been great and I've learned a lot there. Any idea when we would find out if they extend the lease incentive? Would that be available as early as tomorrow?

    I will be rolling everything into my monthly lease payment. If I understand some of your previous posts correctly, the target range of 1,200-2,000 below invoice includes destination and delaer fees, but does not include TTL + taxes. Would the lease incentive be included in the 1200-2000 or should that be on top of it? I am in Philadelphia so I have the ability to go to dealers in PA, NJ, and DE. I know that a few months ago some posters were having trouble getting great deals in this area. I would not be impossible to expand my search to MD, but it would be difficult. My plan was to start sending emails out in about a week. I am most likely going for the EX-L w/o Nav unless I get blown away with an offer on the Nav. Thanks again for all your help.

    The new numbers from Honda are expected tomorrow ... hopefully, we'll have them either tomorrow or the day after.

    there is more room in this deal to negotiate. paying this dealer a 250 doc fee only puts you at alittle over 1k below invoice.

    Invoice on your model is 28,542 w/ destanation charge.

    Your question 26,900 with fee. What fee? If you dont give proper price info we cant answer you.

    does your price include dest/ charge ?

    what is dealers doc fee charge ?

    what state are you buying in ?

    @brian125 said: what state are you buying in ?

    I'm buying in Missouri. The doc fee is $199 and is included in the price. The dest fee is also included.

  • pecanhonda42pecanhonda42 Posts: 3

    2014 coupe EX-L V6 stock: Buying in Missouri MSRP: $31,415 with destination charge Doc fee: $199

    Price They gave me is $26,700 = car price with destination fee $199 = doc fee so total is $26,900.

    I asked for $26,700 for the car, since I was willing to pay that much and they gave it to me immediately. This made me question if it was a good deal or not.

  • teegalateegala Posts: 2

    After lot of thinking & emailing. I brought Honda Accord Hybrid base. Total price = 28500 ( don't remember the breakup but i remember selling price as 1500 less than MSRP). I brought the last car available so didn't have much bargaining option.

    I did check the Sports & EX-L ( V4 without Nav). Got a quote of 23,750 and 25k+ as drive out price from John Eagle Honda ( Houston).

    This is a good deal at 1624 below invoice. If this dealer is not close to you make the closest dealer match or beat.. Dealership is pricing these vehicles to sell quicker than the rest.. Good luck.

    Hi Brian,

    I'm new here and looking to buy a 2014 EX-L V6 Sedan (no navi) in the NJ area. I see you've mentioned that the goal is to get 1-2k off of invoice for the price including dealer doc fees. Is that still a realistic goal since the two $500 dealer incentives just expired with the 4th of July sale being over? Also, any dealers in the area you think are better than others? I was going to start at the Old Bridge DCH Honda dealership. Thanks very much!

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,746

    anuprp

    Oldbridge DCH , Auto-Sport in Bridgewater NJ are 2 good dealerships. Auto-sport most likely will give you the better deal. Both dealerships doc fee's are close to 300 dollars so figure that into your target price. 1800 below dealers invoice is a 1500 below buy . That is what you should target in NJ . Be firm and hold out. Tell all dealerships involved I will buy today for that price.

    DCH Paramus, Garden state are a couple more you need to get involved.

    Good luck.
