    For southern California honda dealers try Hardin Honda in Anaheim and Honda of Hollywood. They both have good reputations and are low haggle dealers...use the internet dept's. I got my EX-L 4cyl Sedan at Hollywood Honda.

    The rumor I heard from a couple of dealers is that the '09's are coming out sooner this year. Time line is mid-august. There's also going to be a diesel for the '09. Otherwise they didn't know of any changes made to the '09's.

    Riverside Honda - bought an EXL V6 from them about a month. Very happy with price and service. I highly recommend them.

    I got mine today at Hardin honda Anaheim for $23,000 + ttl. Thanks for your quote, that really close the deal. Finance was abit long waiting to get in, once in, I was in there less than 10minutes. Great Car and a great deal.

    Congratulations! I got the same car. It's been a great car so far. I really like the Mystic green color and the black leather doesn't get too hot, although I did get the windows tinted.

    After an hour in the sun black leather is not going to be any hotter then tan, grey, pink, purple etc. It heats up quicker, but after an hour all colors are the same temp.

    That is true but that's why they make tint. Huper Optiks all the way, the best heat rejection out there!

    I drove off the lot of Miller Honda in Van Nuys, CA last night in a black on black 2008 Accord EX-L 4cyl w/Navi, wheel locks, cargo tray and mud flaps with only 8 miles on it for $27,850 OTD.

    I did all negotiations via e-mail so i just walked in, signed the papers, paid for the car and then bailed.

    Hope that helps you determine how much you should be paying.
  • kingpcgeekkingpcgeek Posts: 985
    Congrats on the new car.

    It actually helps people more when you tell them the selling price of the car. OTD is not a useful number since it has variables particular to your location like taxes and plates.

    Good point, $25,805 was the price with delivery charges but pre-tax and plates.

    I'm looking through today's ads and I see this.

    '08 Accord LX-P 4DR Auto Trans. MSRP $22,795 (Looks like car + $635 dest.)
    But they have three different LX-P cars and respective sale prices listed below:

    The invoice ($20,085) + destination ($635) = $20,720

    According to this they potentially are losing money. I understand they have a 2% hold back, but why advertise so low. Also, I see the same thing for their Civics which are supposedly flying off the lots and therefore don't/shouldn't require selling at invoice or below.

    Just makes me question if Honda is giving the dealer any incentives.

    AWESOME CAR! Just got it tinted (medium) today, man, it looks NICE! I had an Infinity G35 in 2004, Acura RL 2006, I am glad to trade down cuz of Ga$ prices. No regrets at all. The thing I missed was the Bose stereo, keyless starter and Homelink system. Other than that this car is solid. Hope I don't get the rattles like most folks on this forum. BTW just order the deck lid spoiler on Ebay. Mystic Green!
  • kingpcgeekkingpcgeek Posts: 985
    I am thinking about trading down next month when my G35 lease is up to a EX-L V6 Sedan or Coupe. The two things I am going to miss the most are the keyless start and the growl of the exhaust when you start the G. Having to take a key out of my pocket to open or start a car is going to be a real bummer. I'm worried about locking my keys in my car since a G won't let you.

    I took a walk through a Honda dealership this morning to see the 08 Accords up close and personal for the first time. Coming from an Infiniti I was flabbergasted to see the dealer add on sticker which had $1900 dollars in items:
    Auto Butler
    Splash guards
    Wheel locks
    Trunk tray
    and one or two other items I can't remember

    Question to you all. There is no way I am paying for an alarm and Auto Butler, but how successful has everyone been at negotiating the other items' price down or having them pulled from the car.?
  • I have been offered the following by a dealer. Does this sound fair to you all?

    Accord EX-L V6 Auto - No Nav - Add Auto Dimming Mirror
    $25612 - base price
    $ 350 - transfer charge (color of my choice no where nearby)
    $ 400 - dealer fee
    $ 385 - add auto dimming mirror
    $ 1655 - tax
    $ 110 - title / tag transfer
    $28511 - out the door

    Accord EX-L V6 Auto - with Nav - Add Auto Dimming Mirror
    $30647 - out the door

    I know the dealer fee, the transfer charge and part of the auto dimming mirror are mostly profit for the dealer, but overall, is this a fair offer from the dealer?

  • $1900 sure sounds like there's a lot of profit in that. One of the other items may have been pinstriping. It's cheap to do and most dealers try to charge a lot for it.

    Prices below are for the parts only from College Hills Honda (a dealer well known for selling parts at a discount on the Internet).

    Alarm - 3rd party? I wouldn't even want it in a new Honda! - $???
    Auto Butler - maybe this is the Remote Start accessory??? $372.00
    Splash guards - $72.00
    Wheel locks - $35.00
    Trunk tray - $97.20
    and one or two other items I can't remember - $???

    I came up with $876.20 (assuming the Auto Butler is actually the remote start system). Not sure where the other $1000 comes from. Cheap 3rd party alarms are $150. Expensive ones with remote start included are under $600...

    Sounds like a rip-off. That sticker even being on the window would probably push me to another dealer right there... If they're the only dealers around just tell them you don't want any of that stuff and see what they say...

    im looking for one too. where did you get your quote from? im also in the dfw area. thanks
  • carshoppncarshoppn Posts: 1
    I just got the following quotes:

    2008 Honda Accord LX Sedan AT : $19,500 + TTL

    2008 Honda Accord EX Sedan AT : $21,900 + TTL

    destination fees are included

    Are there good numbers?

  • kingpcgeekkingpcgeek Posts: 985
    Auto Butler is paint/upholstery protection, I think it was $500. The alarm was $700!.

    There was no pinstriping believe it or not.

    Plenty of Honda dealers around, I am in Phoenix.
