    I got $24,496.00 quote from a dealer for 2011 Honda accord EX-L.

    $24,496.00 + destination ($750) + TTL in Washington DC area.

    Is it a good price.? :confuse:

    Exactly! The fine print states that to get manufacturer's low or no interest rate you have to be "Well qualified".

    Yes, the dealers often have to subsidize interest finacing to get the consumers to buy a car and often they get incetnives for getting loan processed by fin. institution.

    Always, get your own lowest rate loan approved as a benchmark.

    Try the Criswell and Ourisman dealerships and use AMEX/Zag service. Use their quote to further bargain, especially end of month.

    See the old posts of DC/MD area buyers- Seen prices closer 23k+ for EXL 5spd sedan but incentives from Honda to dealers do change every month and Summer is not the ideal time to buy but slow economy is in your favor.

    IF it's a V6, excellent, if it's a I4. could be better.

    Java5, my deal details are:

    EX-L I-4 and paid $24,268 ($23,543 + $725 options), plus TTL (fees, state tax).

    Options are pre-installed and I had to pay for them with big discount, including:
    1. Wing spoiler with pulse light (a safty feature), $799
    2. Windows tint, $299
    3. Paint and seat protections package, $399
    4.Pro-pack (wheel locks, splash guard, trunk tray), $299
    ---- Those options are taged about $1800, I paid $725.

    They also offer life-time car wash at dealership.

    Now i get it, how you got the 0.9/60 months, you paid more for the car and the dealer bought the percentage point from Honda, i would say paid in excess of 725 for dealer installed options which cost the dealer 1/4 the price.Any ways enjoy your new car

    hi! Two months ago, the SE model was 19000 in md. but now it is more than 22000. is it all because of the earthquake? is it going to go back to 19000 if I wait for several weeks? thanks
  • imsatimsat Posts: 7
    Thanks alookman,

    I got On the road Quote from Criswell which is: $26900 and, from Ourisman which is: $26700, both are for 2011 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4 L 4 Cylinder.

    Do u think its a good price.? :confuse:

    Thanks again.

    SE was never 19000, even LXP is 19200 with all the incentives, you must have confused between SE and LX

    I do enjoy my new car very much. It's my third new Accord.
    Can you get an EX-L for less than $23,543? What you said about what I paid is just your opnion, you didn't do the math right .... Did you read all my posts here? lol
    By the way, they offer new buyer free life-time car wash.

    You mean to say you will buy $750 worth more accessories for free car wash, take that $750 and invest in stocks you can wash car twice every day, the point is you paid at least $900 more for your car, the quote that i got from Russel and smith Honda for 2011 EXL-I4, is as follows
    1. Car price-----22,600.00(including destination)
    2. Tint----------------150.00
    3. Propack-----------150.00=22,900+ttl.

    Have fun

    It is wrong, I got an offer from Ourisman Honda for $18690 for 2011 honda Accord SE (not incldung TTL and freight, OTD price is around $21000), yes It is Accord SE.
    I also bought a 2011 Accord EX-L I4 from Ourisman Honda for $24,300 OTD (0.9 APR, free first month payment, free preprogram my CRV car key, free floormat, wheel lock, trunk tray, paintstrip, wheel lock and splash guard)

    i am not sure how in the world are you getting these quotes... when no dealer in nj is willing to go below 25000 (incl. dest) for a ex-l
  • alookmanalookman Posts: 141
    Java 5,

    Where is your dealership located? If you get the EX-L I4 AT for 23k or less its a good deal. Their add ons are also very reasonably priced!

    In Texas the dealers add the protection package and other accessories and insist on sticking it to consumers. I like the way Honda packages their cars unlike Toyota & others which have tons of options installed that can run up the price by few $ks, but Honda dealers have totally messed it up!

    Also, Texas New Car Dealers [non-permissible content removed]. will not let you get low quotes from Texas dealers using web based services like Amex/Zag, and I think the prices are higher here due to the "Cartel"in Lonestar State!

    I have been following this Forum since last year and it seems MD dealers like Criswell and Ourisman do offer best deals.
  • alookmanalookman Posts: 141
    "On the road" means out of the door or drive out final price? It seems really high. See the post by Java 5 he has quote from a dealership for $22,690 plus add on accessories at a very reasonable price. Another poster has quote better than that on EX-L from Ourisman!

    Dealer add-ons, I would not pay at all and if they insist I would pay them their actual cost which is about 1/4 of retail.

    EX-L 4cyl AT should be at 23k with dest. inc plus TTL. End of month is when they will budge on price. Factory to dealer incentives varies each month!

    That's great price too. Congrats!
    I paid more but got more than you ----
    a. Paint and leather protaction plan;
    b. Raer spoiler with pulse light;
    Whose are what I like to get, you may not want them though.
    I also trade-in my 07 Accord with a good price, which saves me $700 tax.

    What finance rate did you get?
  • alookmanalookman Posts: 141
    Java 5,

    LX, LX-P and SE are not as well selling as EX and EX-L with I-4 due to 190 HP and better tires, so dealers have more of those on lot and factory incentives are often targeted to move them. Though I must say 18,900 is very good deal for LX-P but a steal for SE!
  • java5java5 Posts: 18
    I am trying to say that i got better deal or you got better deal, i am just telling you when you buy car next time be careful, they are there to rip you off, any ways i also got 0.9/60 and first months payment made by Honda finance that is like 460.00 since i bought a exl-v6 the payments are higer
