    Autonation Honda Corpus Christi.

    My salesperson was Joe. It was a very smooth deal. Price was negotiated over the phone. I went in, filled out the paperwork, put the down payment and walked out with the car.

    I was one of the lurkers on this board, reading all the posts for a couple of months. I thank all of you experts for the valuable advice that you shared. If it wasn't for your advice, I would not have got this price.

    Once again - thank you all!!!!

    Tenisit,

    I'm not sure what your area's market pricing is . Read my last couple of post on pricing in the North East. I set two price ranges you should fall into one or the other. get as many dealerships involved as far as your willing to travel. make your best deal closest to the end of the month.Your states doc fee's are not a factor so work on getting the lowest price.

    This new web set up is terrible i cant give you a reference post number. please read prior posts and figure out a target price to buy. if you decide to choose the lower target price start at the higher end of it and work down from that number on the last 2 days, last day of this month for the sale.

    I see email is the way to go. Is it better to email directly to the dealer?

    Brian,

    Thanks for reply above regarding End of Month pricing for Accord Sport. I've also been looking at the new Accord Hybrid model. Do you think its still too early to get invoice or below type pricing on those models??

    That might be alot harder model to get below invoice price . If i was in the market for the hybrid model i would email and call the internet mgrs with a 500 below invoice offer to buy at months end plus flex cash if a dealer has to give.. Quick and simple.

    paying invoice price plus a dealerships doc fee charge would be my bottom line price right now. ..

    Hi,

    I'm currently trying to purchase a new 2014 Accord Sport CVT in the houston Texas area and wanted to know if the two price quotes are a good start in negotiating a great deal. These quotes are just from me sending the dealers an email to get a price to get the ball rolling.

    The first quote is as follows,

    Selling Price. $21,575.00   

    Destination. $790.00

    Sales Tax. $1,398.00

    Inventory Tax $41.94

    License, Title, Inspection. $145.00

    Documentary Fee $125.00

        Total Drive Out Price $24,077.94

    Second quote is as follows,

    MSRP STICKER. $ 25,305.00

    INVOICE COST. $ 23,225.00

    INTERNET PRICE. $21,135.00

    DEST CHARGE. $790.00

    ACCESSORIES $499.00 (include lifetime window tint, nitrogen tire upgrade, wheel locks, door guards, splash guards and a trunk mat)

    PAINT & FABRIC PROTECTION. $ 299.00

    SUB TOTAL. $ 22,723.00

    STATE SALES TAX(+). $ 1,420.19

    DEALER DOCUMENTARY FEE(+). $ 150.00

    VEHICLE INSP. FEE (+). $ 39.50

    LICENSE$ TITLE $ (+). $ 99.55

    DEALER'S INVENTORY TAX. $ 48.78

    TOTAL OTD. $ 24,481.02

    (MUST FINANCE WITH AHF / WAPC)

    I tried to get them to remove the Accessories and Paint protection but he said it's already on the car and nothing can be removed.

    What deal is better in your opinion and is this even a good deal?

    Thanks in advance for your help! :)

    Deal # 2 is terrible, never pay for useless accessories. Deal #1 seems overpriced. Invoice is $23,225, dealer #1 is only offering you $22,490 or $790 under invoice. You should be able to do a lot better than this. I would e-mail all your local internet dealers and offer $21,225 for the car, destination, doc fee, and including the $500 flex cash for financing through Honda. Refuse to pay for any accessories, and say that the only acceptable additional charges are the inventory fee and TTL. Tell them you will BUY TODAY, and if they don't accept try again on the morning of the 31st, and take your best counteroffer.

    I would try the corpus christi dealers, they apparently are willing to go a lot lower on price.

    @naazim

    Let me see if I can help break down your two deals.

    Dealer 1: 1. Sales price: $21,575 + 790 = $22365; 2. Invoice price (including destination fee) = $23,225; 3. Sales price below invoice = $860; 4. Sales price below invoice with dealer doc fee of $125 = $735; 5. What is the inventory tax? Does it only apply to Texas, because I have never heard of it here in MA; 6. Did you ask whether they had any flex cash available if you financed through Honda?

    Dealer 2: 1. Sales price (without dealer add-ons): $21,135 + 790 = $21925*; 2. Invoice price (including destination fee) = $23,225; 3. Sales price below invoice = $1300; 4. Sales price below invoice with dealer doc fee of $150 = $1150;

    1. Cost of Dealer add-ons: $499 (Accessories) + $299 (paint and fabric protection) = $798;
    2. Sales price of car with all dealer add-ons = $22723;
    3. Sales price below invoice with all dealer add-ons = $502.

    **Note: Since dealer 2 said you must finance through Honda Financial, did you ask them whether the sales price already includes the $500 flex cash?

    Here are your options:

    Since dealer 1 has the car without any accessories and their doc fees are low compared to dealer 2, find out whether they have flex cash available and negotiate on the sale price of the car. You should be able to get close to $1000 below invoice. Your best bet is to offer them a BUY NOW price the last two days of this month.

    As for dealer 2, you have two options. You could ask them whether they can get you a car without any accessories. If they cannot and you want some of the accessories on the car they have, negotiate the cost of those accessories. If they do not want to budge, walk away and try and find another dealership that has the car without any dealer-add ons.

    At this time of the year, $1000 below invoice on a 2014 model is do able.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Side note: I am not a big fan of the new forum format.

  • ...my guess is the fabric protector has enough carcinogens in it to last a lifetime (a new Honda smells like a toxic waste dump for weeks anyway...why make it worse). I would tell that sum'[non-permissible content removed] to suck it and move on.

    Thanks for the advise Veers, and bluemkn57cars really appreciate it. Will do as y'all have stated and re email all the local dealers with my target price and see if any are willing to sell it for that much. Thanks!

    Hi, I have been trying to buy 2014 Accord LX model, with no additional add-ons in New Jersey.

    Initial quote from most of the dealers was around $23,000, with break down being

    invoice along with handling fees $20,920 STATE SALES TAX NJ: $1,464.40

    NJ TIRE TAX: $7.50

    DOCUMENTATION FEE: $359

    REGISTRATION: $301

    Out The Door price = 23,051.90

    Almost 4-5 dealers quoted around this price.

    With some bargaining, and cross quoting vendors, the best I could get so far is $22,300, I feel this is little high.

    I tried asking abt the WSJ about the $3000 incentive. One of the dealers replied saying it seems last year Honda sold a lot of vehicles due to Sandy, so she mentioned it is totally unrealistic for any dealer to achieve more sales than last year. Sad part is few dealers aren't even responding when I send them other dealer quotes. I know few people who got their 2012 and 2013 accords for 20,000 - 22,000, in the middle of the year. I keep reading and hearing that end of the year is the best time to buy, but am unable to get those deals. Kindly provide me some tips for better bargaining.

    Thanks, Sandeep.

    Autosport may be your best bet in Jersey. It's a very tough market, and the dealers aren't necessarily dying for business. You are much better off reaching out to the MD and northern VA dealers mentioned in earlier threads. You should be able to get the car for at least $1600 under invoice at this point (including doc fees and the $500 flex cash), so that would make your target price $20,020, and then just add tax and registration, putting your OTD at around 22 flat. $22,300 is pretty decent for the NJ market, but your best bet is to aggressively push the MD and northern VA folks on the 30th/31st and look for a steal.

  • I got a quote from Norm Reeves for 20,600 without the flex cash. After all fees, the total would come out to 22,500. It seemed like a good deal. When I asked about financing, they would only offer the current 1.9% for 60 months even though there is a huge banner on their storefront offering 0% financing for 60 months. Manager told me the 0% is only available if I buy at sticker? Is this right?

    A dealer could say or do what ever they want,, Some dealers speciality's are lying and deceiving . They go hand and hand in the car business.. .

    Norm Reeves is telling you .... If your stupid enough to buy one of his vehicles at full price he will give you a better finance rate.

    Thanks veers, will keep the forum posted on the final price.

  • @ jasonaccord

    Tell the dealer that the 0% financing offer for 60 months is a deal breaker for you, and see what they say. Is that the best offer you have received? What model are you looking to purchase?

    Happy Holidays everyone.

  • 2014 lx cvt with msrp of 23500. Invoice is 20800 and dealer gave me 20100 with the flex cash, however he was not going to budge on the 0% offer they have posted on their website. The deal is a good deal, as many dealers were balking at that price. 23501.

    Are you in the Orange County CA Area? If so, which Norm Reeves is having the 0% APR? I saw the same offer at Honda World on their website. I also saw it on the Norm Reeves Cerritos Email but after reading the fine print it states the 0% APR only applies to the maximum amount of $10,000.

  • The actual terms were that the loan was for three years and the amount paid was to be 16.67 paid per month for every 1k borrowed up to 12k financed. I don't know if it is through AHFC or not.

    Yeah, well some customers are pretty adapt at lying too!

    I've heard it all!

    Emailed a few dealers for base price, destination, any dealer add-on fees. Some responded with no price quote, only that someone would be contacting me. Ones that came with price quotes included "*Your price quote is valid for 7 days and does not include Dealer Installed Accessories, Tax, License, or Doc Fees. We reserve the right to modify this quote to correct arithmetic errors. Incentive and pricing programs are subject to change by the Manufacturer without notice. We will notify you promptly if any incentive or pricing programs or other terms change."

    Is that common? Is there any point in following up?

    Hi All Experts,

    I am reading this forum from Sep/Oct and gets lot of details, specially purchase price of New Car, how to deal with dealer and how's the market work for Honda Cars, from so many experts Brian, Isellhonda, bluemkn and so many others (apologized as I missed so many names).

    I am planning to purchase 2014 - EX-L 4 Cyl by end of this month and due to this forum expert advice I got very good deal ($2100 down the Invoice) without flex cash in So Cal area. I am still hunting till end date of month.

    As this forum is full with buyers, I need expert advice on purchased Honda Car.

    I found that Major Honda Buyers facing Jerking problem after approx 700 mile. Even one of the expert of this Forum (Brian) also made statement that he is also facing the same problem in his 2013 V6 model. On Carcomplaints(dot)com total 76 complaints register for 2013 model out of that 80% are on the same issue (Jerk/Engine Problem) and out of that 50% are registered by NHTSA. I drove the car as test drive but didn't feel any jerk as it was too short (15 min)

    Due to above issue, I can't take step forward to purchase one.

    Why I chose Honda.. Answer is Good Resale Value, Safety and Good Engine. Question is "Is CVT Engine really good in New Honda car?" I am requesting here to all expert for them best advice if possible. [I am hoping, I am not violating any regulation/rule of this forum by asking such question at here and if I am then mod, please feel free to delete this post.]

    All response will be greatly appreciated..

    Thanks, HPS
