    why don't you have them pull the tint off and re-tint it?
  • $25,847.44 OTD. You mean tax is included???
    Whats the tax rate??? I think this is a good deal.
    Mind to let us know the dealer???

    3838, I'm some what disappointed. I've lived in my home for almost four years, and my address isn't in the 09 Accord Nav. system. I contact the dealer, and was told to bring it in, and they will have one of their shop people who understand the nav system to take a look. Honda's book states that they don't give a new disc without charging the customer. However, they stated if the dealer want's to do a favor for the customer then it would be up to them to get an updated disc. I strongly feel that my Nav system is old, for the directions it gives to a location is way off the mark. I purchase n 09 Accord Sdn EX V-6 W/Nav, and :mad: the money that I paid for the Nav should have been better then what I received.
  • Hi, I have the same problem. My address isn't in the 09 Accord Navigation System. It has somebody's home address in our neighbor, so I pick it up for my home. What is your story. Do they give you an updated disc?

    Thanks,

    I have a deal in place to lease a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L-V6, fully loaded
    for 310.00 a month.
    MSRP 29,725
    Sale price 27875

    2,699 at time of lease signing plus tax and tags. Is this a good deal, if not what are the flaws in the deal?

    Thanks

    The 2,699 at time of signing plus tax and tags is the flaw in the deal. That is much too much money to put down on a lease. You should never put down more then the first months payment, bank fee ($595), dealer doc fee, tax and tags.

    Eevry lease I've ever heard of asks for more than that up fornt. Based on what I've told you how much should I be putting down, my experience is that with less down the monthly payment would be higher
  • kingpcgeekkingpcgeek Posts: 985
    They can ask all they want, but as long as you have good credit you don't need to put any down. As I said you never want to put more then first payment, bank fee, doc fee & TTL. Yes of course your payment is going to be higher, but I've cut and pasted the perfect explanation from leasecompare.com as to why putting money down (cap cost reduction) is a bad thing to do:

    Because you pay for the use of a vehicle during a lease, you should put as little money down as possible, up front. Although putting money down can lower your lease payments (by reducing your capitalized cost) in most cases it cannot be regained in the event of early termination due to a loss.

    For example, a customer once leased a Toyota 4Runner and put $3,000 down as a cap reduction. Five months later the vehicle was totaled in an accident. The client's insurance paid its portion of the lease payoff and Gap Insurance paid the balance. Our client walked away with only paying his insurance deductible but he did not get reimbursed for his initial down payment of $3,000. It was lost.

    The moral of this true story is to put as little money down as possible, ideally no money down. Here are some other things to consider:
    - Money down is taxable
    - Take the money you would have put down and invest it
    - Put your down payment in a savings account and use a portion each month to help make your lease payment
  • Finaaly after speaking with many dealers in NJ, I quote the lowest quote which is same quote from many dealers in NJ. No one willing to go any lower.

    2009 Honda Accord Automatic Ex-L V4 for $24,500 includes everything ( all fees, sales tax of 7%, deliver fees, documentation fees etc.)

    any comments appreciated.

    no-down payment makes sense only if interest rate is very low or 0%. Otherwise, after 3yrs of driving without totaling the car, you'll end up with less money.

    Every single leasing expert will tell you to not put money down on a lease, but of course you are free to do what you want. One of advantages of a lease is to not tie up a bunch of money in a car. If you want to put money down on a lease why don't you just buy the car?

    Little/no down is the only way to go on a lease. Smarten up!

    In 2003 I got my first car with nav the acura TL. There was a nice tech pagage on that car and price was pretty sharp. As the years have gone by NAV equipped cars are selling at a nice premium. Prices have not dropped much. My last Audi had a nav package and frankly they do a poor job with the nav anyway. I think Honda has always done a nice job with the nav. It seems as NAV systems have become for popular the car companies have taken advantage of that.

    Personally I think that since you can buy a pretty good standalone bluetooth nav for a few hundred I think that may be the way to go. There is some inconvenience as you should hide it when you park the car to avoid theft. My cell phone Palm Pre has a bult in NAV. Once I get a little mount that is also handy. Not to mention that most people dont use nav daily. My sense of direction is not good so I do use it, but not every day. If you travel out of town alot they may be a factor.

    good luck

    Assisted my daughter in purchase of EXL I4 auto non-nav in OKC. Went to lowest internet priced dealer, and picked a car that was intransient. Dealer included splash guards, paint and upholstery sealant wheel locks and trunk mat, for OTD $23000. She added window tint for $200 for delivered price of $23200. Beat other OKC dealers by between $545 - $1400.

    White with Ivory leather, dark tinted windows. Gorgeous!

    Hello, I have been offered $23,100 for a new Accord Coupe EX-L (auto trans). I live in metro ny and the tax is about 7.5%, it comes close to $25,000 OTD. The V6 was offered for $1,800 more. The end of the month is approaching and so are the 2010 models. Is anyone seeing or getting better prices?
