2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    I just closed the deal on the above car. I drove both the auto and manual many times and came to the conclusion that the performance is much better with the manual plus the gas mileage is better. The manual shifts very smoothly and the clutch is light and fast. There is to much delay between pressing the gas and getting moving on the auto. The I4+5Spd is much better then the V6+6Spd from a smooth shifting perspective. If you want pure power then get the V6 but you really do not need it.

    $23,115 - MSRP + Destination

    $19,831 - Purchase price including destination
    $45 - Doc fee NYS max fee
    $172 - Title and tags with refund if it is less
    $1636 - NYS and local sales tax

    $21684 - OTD

    I really wanted the EX-L but the sunroof was just a non starter. The one thing I really want is heated mirrors but I have a few months to figure out how to make that work on the LX-S. If any one knows how to do this "upgrade" I would appreciate it since it is a nice feature in this cold region in the winter months.

    Hi guys,

    I just moved to MD a few days ago from MA. I plan to pick up a new car soon. But my insurance is still from MA. Do I need to change my insurance to MD in order to buy and register my car in MD ? Do I need to buy full coverage ? When should I change my driver license ?

    I am hearing a lot of problems with the new ACCORD's re: Rear Brakes. has anyone been experiencing the problem to the extent that we should be staying away from buying an Accord until the time Honda has a fix for this ??

    Consumer Complaint Sites are filled with issues for atleast last 6 months and honda has not done anything to fix the issue till date with no fixed timeline on when it might be solved.

    Not a problem.

    I purchased the car at Valley Honda in Aurora, IL.

    A few days before I went to Valley Honda, I recieved 2 (from different dealers) on-line quotes. I took these quotes in with me and told Valley that I'd buy the car from them if they beat these prices.

    They were very easy to work with.

    Let me know if you need anything else

    I am planning on picking this up in the next couple of days.

    The price I was given was $20,500 for an Accord Coupe LX-S I4. This is in So Cal. Any opinions on if the price is good, bad, or really bad...

    I know it's about average, not really sure on how good it is.

    Yes it is going rate! I did buy the same in March 2009, (LX sedan, Auto, WHT, with VIN starting = JH....) (FL 6% tax & OTD = $19,890), but if you can wait 50-60 days, Honda summer clearance will start and may be you get another $400-$800 off.

    Try more haggling, and may be you can get another $200.

    Let us know what's your plan and what did you do?.

    thanks for sharing your purchase information.

    actually i got a quote from bay area dealer(CA) for 17888(including dest) so for otd around less than 20K. I trying to offer 17.5K and they refused. I'm hanging here and confident that accord will be on sale in one or two month after 10 models come out.
  • roc571roc571 Posts: 2
    I got 17888 quote for LX two weeks ago and LX-p should be just + 900.
    this is for bayarea

    I asked Planet Honda in NJ for a detailed quote on an Accord ex-l v6 and they had the nerve to tell me that they don't talk pricing over email for this vehicle. Ever heard of that? Ridiculous!

    May I ask you experienced car guys out there how you went about getting quotes? Email/Phone/In person? and did the dealers give you exact details of each fee/tax etc? They all seem so hesitant to give full disclosure and they expect me to buy the car without knowing what i'm paying for?? i don't want to lowball them, but c'mon, you have to be forthcoming. i hate this process!

    I'm going to pick up my Crystal Black Pearl Accord EX-L Navi 5spd with wing spoiler today. The deal worked out to be $24,800 before TTL ($24,530 w/o the spoiler). It's hard to find the 5spd with colors and trim level you want so I'm satisfied with this price. I could have pushed harder, but it's hard when you know there is only 1 of these cars in the five state area I live in.

    A note on the spoiler for those that are interested. The installed dealer quote was $650. I was able to get them down to $270.

    I just wanted to post my deal to help any others out there. I've learned a great deal from this forum durning the purchase of both my '05 Pilot EX-L DVD and the '09 Accord.

    Thanks to everyone out there.

    It depends on the dealer. I've had dealers say I have to come in before they will talk price. I've also had dealers offer to send me pricing info over email without evening asking for it. I generally call the dealership and ask for the internet sales mgr. That person is generally used to dealing with folks who've done their research, know the car they want, and are just shopping price. I would try that. Don't hesitate to call smaller dealers that are outside of a major metropolitain area. I've gotten great deals from them. In the end, I think it just depends on the particular dealer/sales person you end up going to.
