    i did and one came down 1/2 of thre dh&p 495 to 247 so i am now at 28,164. along way from 27,000. the dealers all read edmunds. so they know what going on.

    Veers has good advice - if you can wait to the end of the month you might get a better deal. You should also check Wyoming, New Mexico and Utah dealers as well. One may be willing to meet your target price if you're willing to travel.

    Texan,

    You went from one dealership selling at 400 below invoice with added accessories to a dealer selling 1700 below invoice.. with added accessories. Very good deal

    I'd say you stepped in [non-permissible content removed].. on the luck side my friend. If your numbers are correct.

    Post name off dealership so other forum members can try to get a similar deal.

    Enjoy your new Accord

    The Washington DC area Honda dealers do seem to sell at competive prices. Having bought four Honda vehicles I can safely say the better dealers in the area include Criswell, Sport, O'Donnell, Pohanka, and Norris. Best to contact all for the best price.

    I have found College Park Honda and Ourisman Honda less friendly. Ourisman, in my experience, seems to have a fondness for attaching overpriced items on each vehicle for about $1,000 or so. College Park seems to offer a basically useless lifetime warranty as an inducement to buy. In my experience such items are often indicative of a less than desireable dealer.

    Maryland caps the document fee at $200. Virginia does not and doc fees there can exceed $400. However, my experience is the Virginia dealers will quickly reduce the fee for buyers coming from Maryland. And always good to recognize all dealer fees are nothing but price, profit to the dealer and cost to the buyer.

    $380 include 189 doc fee, 65 for tag 75 for registration and inspection and 50 for vehicle inventory tax. For most dealer here in Texas it averages around $300. So I paid abt $80 more but that night on Thursday it was windy and cold and I do not want my wife to suffer there so we did it and drove out with it. Great help from forum.

    I did my deal with Gillman Honda in Rosenberg where Manger is Mr. Aldo. As I was going there other dealer Russsel & Smith Honda in Houston also e-mailed me same deal for $26,800 but I was already on my way to Gillman. The internet sales guy at Russel & Smith is Mr. Bill Sterling and I only dealt with him via e-mails but he was very responsive and they have good customer reviews. If anyone needs help here let me know.

    A reporter would like to speak to a new car buyer under 40 years old who purchased their car because of the connectivity features. Did you buy a Ford because of Sync and MyFordTouch, a Chrysler because of UConnect, a Honda because of HondaLink, etc.?

    Did any of you who purchased new accords have it suggested you bring back the car in 60 days for a 60 point inspection just to make sure everything is good?

  • Hi iam plaaning to buy a 2014 Honda Accord EX-L V6 with Nav.what would be the best sale price for it.i live in the dallas area...have gone through several online websites to find the avg price but couldn't follow if thats the price excluding dealer installed accessories....any help would be appreciated.

    The best sale price is the lowest sale price you could get. Go to NADA pricing that web site is very easy to get pricing with dest/ charge on every model.. Edmunds web site is terrible to navigate thru. Take your models invoice price then add the dest charge of 790. Then minus your target price to buy. 500 to 1500 below invoice. This should be in your area's price range..... make your best deal by getting several dealerships involved in pricing by meeting your target price and not there's. Read thru this board on tips and advice...................... How and when to buy..

    Check out Truecar pricing for your area just need a zip code and very little info to get a idea of pricing. Remember truecar pricing is just a guide on pricing........ not your final selling price.

    A target price of 1500 below invoice may not be obtainable in your area yet. Start your negotiations with a high target price and work that number back towards invoice price making your best deal by the end of Jan.

    Any further questions after reading back on this board 1 or 2 months should give you the right questions to ask to close your deal........ Good luck

  • Thanks Brain for your valuable input.....is there a way to find the actual costs of dealer installed accessories?All the honda dealers seem to install about >$2000 worth of equipment(i know thats the profit margin) but just wondering how do we negotiate on accessories...

    In SW OH...helped a friend put in a buy offer on a new dark grey ext/light grey interior Accord EX-L Nav, with winter Honda floor mats and aftermarket 3M tint (done by dealer's tint guy). One and only offer...$27K even, no doc fee. Only had to add in tags and taxes. Done this past weekend. Was in and out of the dealership in about 75 minutes from the time we walked in, until the time we drove away.

    Check out pricing at

    College hills honda or Cheap honda parts. The prices you find on here are as close to dealers invoice we may get at any dealership. Use these prices as a guide to make dealership match or beat..

    I'm looking to buy an Accord EX-L sedan without any other options. This being earlier in year and month, any idea what would be a reasonable price right now?

    I'm in Northern California, so appreciate if someone can share your good experience with any particular dealer.

    Thanks!

    500 below invoice is reasonable.

    Hi everyone,

    The advice and tips that I read here were great. I think I have an almost finalized deal. PA resident and the deal is with a North Jersey dealership.

    2014 EX for $22,150.00 with destination, plus $95.00 prep fee, $199.00 etching fee & $398.00 document prep fee, and 6% sales tax.

    2014 EX-L for $24,500.00 with destination, plus the same fees set forth above.

    Just wanted to confirm if the above is a good deal. Any comments/advice is much appreciated

  • veersveers Posts: 79

    For the EX-L it looks like you have $700 in fees, so the it would be $25,200 or about $1450 under the $26,650 invoice. That is a good deal for NJ, and for this time of year. You might be able to save a few hundred more bucks at the end of the month if you hit up the MD dealers, but still you deal sounds pretty solid. You might try going in with a check for the full amount minus the vin etching fee, since it costs about $20 to vin etch a car.

    @gthever - would you mind sharing the dealership name in North NJ offering $24,500 for EX-L? I'm also looking to buy in north NJ and have yet to find a better deal. Thanks.
