  • well i just purchased today a 09 accord lx automatic sedan. the msrp of the car was $22225 and the invoice was $20,430 (my numbers are maybe a couple dollars incorrect i dont want to get all the papers). well i paid OTD less than $22,300. Also the car had 2 extra things a $399 paint protection crap which i didnt pay for and also it had $299 tinted windows. so price was about $20530 +ttl which came out to something in the range of $22,2XX keep in mind the based on those dealer add ons the price was around $23,000. i thought it was reasonable plus i did not get screwed in financing they bettered the rate my bank gave me.
  • Seems like the price of the 2009 LX is gonna up a couple hundred compared to 2008. Just to make sure, you got the LX and not LX-P? I have a 2008 LX, very nice car and gets good MPG. Even though the exterior styling maybe questionable, the engineering and interior styling is superb/excellent. Congrats on your purchase.
  • It was the LX not the LX-P. oh yeah and it was in in the $22,2XX it was in the $22,0XX range OTD. I though it was reasonable as i checked edmunds and the TMV was at around $21,850. in know the TMV is like an average of what other buyers are paying so based on edumnds TMV it looks like most people are paying above invoice and that is not including tint or that paain, carpet, seat protectan (which is crap you shouldnt have to pay for it really but many people are lead into thinking you do) which at honda is very expensive compared to other dealers with other makes. also there are some people here that post their paid amount and it seems an unbelievable low price but most of the people posting do not say if this was cash price or if it was financed. if it was fianced it doesnt say what interest rate they were hit with. remember that many times the dealer will give an amazing selling price but then when you get to financing (if you didnt get some options before like a lot of peope) you get stuck with a higher interest than you should so you actually didnt get such a good deal. keep in mind that a majority of people are unaware of sites like this and that people posting here are a minority so in general most people are not payig this amazing deals that others claim they. But nontheless my sell price was $20,530 and $22.0XX was my OTD. the msrp on this vehicle was $22,250 and invoice was like $20,430 but based on their added features paint protectant and tint they had msrp a little above $22,900. so what do ya think about the deal i got. i guess some could hav egotten a better one but after going to othe rmakes (nissan) and getting the run around i was tired and the sales guy at the particular honda i got mine from was excellent. and really it is said that to give them a reasonable gain you should offer a couple of hundred dollars above invoice and that is not included added options since some do not come in edmunds pricin gto calculate the invoice of them.

    I was going to comment on the questions you asked but my eyes went tired reading your post. Have you ever thought of proof reading what you write or maybe write in complete sentences and paragraphs? Doesn't have to be perfect but somewhat legible.

    Hi tgty,

    Where did you buy your 09 EX-L? I am in the market for an 08 EX-L and the best offer I got so far is only $500 below what you paid. The Honda dealers are pretty firm in Houston. Maybe I should go for an 09 EX-L.

    Thanks.
  • hahahaha I guess you are right. I will take that under consideration for a future post. but then again it wasnt as bad as "butpostslikeyoursareimpossibletoundertsand". The paragraph thing would have been good. You can tell i dont do this quite often. Also my previous post was a couple up from my last post a lot less stuff. i still would like to hear from more of you thanks.

    It's so unbelievible how firm the price is for 08 EX-L. My best 08 EX-L quote is very close to your 09 quote. I countered offer $300 below OTD price and was turned down by all the dealers that I talked to.

    Where are you located?

    My boss recommends GEICO's mechanical breakdown policy instead of manufacture's extended warranty. You can google it and see what other people say.
  • I agree -- why would I pay just a few hundred dollars less for an '08 that's probably been sitting on the lot for awhile?

    Anyway, those quotes were in the southern New England area (Rhode Island and Massachusetts). Keep in mind that this was all over e-mail. I'm heading in to the dealerships this weekend, so I'll keep you posted.

    There is a forum on Edmunds dedicated to extended warranties. If you do so research you MAY find out that Geico's mechanical breakdown policies are not underwritten by Geico.

    Honda's extended warranty can be purchased for a very competitive price form other Honda dealers out of state if you do a google search.

    According to Geico's website, you can only purchase the breakdown protection if you also have your car insurance through Geico.

  • I think you got a pretty good deal considering the fact that you got extra goodies ( and I agree you shouldn't pay for it but automakers make their money), and its early in the model year.

    I recieved a similar quote on and 09 yesterday on LI 28495 +TTL
  • Are they willing to move on this price? Keep me posted, the markets should be similar. I am thinking that the NAVI units are harder to move and the dealership I am working with will be willing to come down.

    i just bought this car.. i paid 26020 for it including destination fees. was that a good price?
  • I am checking to see what people have been quoted for either an 08 or 09 accord ex-l with destination fee included. No navi or any other options - just the car and destination fee. Thanks
  • just FYI, some dealers have been offering 1500 below real invoice for all 08 leftovers. All of them are sedans auto, from 4cyl to 6 cyl.

    I have been quoted a price of $22,133 for an 09 EX (including destination). PA tax and title, reg and doc fees of $198 get the OTD price to $23,659. I would like to be at $23,500. This would be roughly $22,000 for the car. Is this reasonable?? Is this current deal pretty good as is?? This is $529 lower than I was originally quoted, which was essentially invoice. Dealer will get me any color I want.

    What does everyone think??

    THANKS
  • I bought a Accord LX AT for $19865 (including destination) plus TTL ($249.5 documentation, $25.5 title, 6.75% sales tax, $21500 OTD price) today at Honda Marysville in central Ohio. I think it is pretty good for a 2009 model at this time. Any opinion? Thank for this great forum.
