    This was no luck. Its called good timing and knowing when to buy and having the most leverage in the negotiations... By following what i was saying and appling it.... just goes to show that a newbie like your self pulled off a monster deal. the last day of any month is when dealers will give you there best price. I still think you bought the sport that was missing a door...LOL

    Your lucky in one aspect... You walked into Autosport Honda they are a great dealership. Like i posted earlier... I have purchased from them in the past and can honestly say ONE OF The better dealers in New Jersey. But you still must know how to play the game to get that price..

    Here is a couple more dealers in new jersey who i would recomend for good pricing. YOu cant expect to get these dealers best price on Jan 8th or 18th. always try to make your best deal at months end/// last days/ last day..

    Paul Miller.............. Internet staff is very good. Internet Mgr Mike is on his game... like Autosports Manager ......Kerry

    DCH Paramus......Very competitive pricing.
    Joyce Honda..............High doc fee's $399 looking to sell cars i like them
    DCH OldBridge...........Doc fee 299 ... good dealership
    Hamilton....................Doc fee 249..... good dealership/ internet dept..
    Garden State........... Heard some good things about them
    Metro honda............ they will surprise you sometimes. gotta be firm with them.
    Planet honda......... high doc fee's $398. they claim to match offers

    Hope this helps

  • i've been to several dealers and requested quotes from all dealers around la metro, nobody can do better than 22600 + ttl. some of you getting it cheaper are lucky.
  • Hello All,

    New to Edmunds and I really appreciate all the information you all have provided. I'm thinking about buying a 2013 Accord EX-L V6 W/Navi and wanted to ask you for some feedback.

    Those who have purchased this car what do you think about it? Pros & Cons?
    The best purchase price if possible. I'm in Los Angeles, California

    thank you all for your responce.

  • amty007,

    I think $27,200 for a 2013 accord EX-L V6 without NAV (with wheel lock and mud guards) is a good deal ! What was the TTL fee they quoted you? May I ask for the name of this honda dealer and name of the salesperson? When was this offer made to you in 2012 or 2013?

    The best offer I got in Indiana and was only good for one day on Jan2nd was:
    . $28,000 for the car (include destination fee),
    . Add $345 for the following installed options/accessories: Splash Guard, All Season Mats, Body Side Molding, and Trunk Tray)
    . Two Free oil changes
    . 7% Indiana tax on the
    . $151.25 document fee$
    . a $400 gift card (year-end enticing) was still honored if I took the deal on Jan 2nd.
  • I am looking to buy a 2013 accord sedan either LX or Sport with a 6 speed manual transmission. Acording to one dealer who didn't have one in stock, who looked it up on the dealer's car locator site, there are only 7 manual transmission 4 door sedans in California and those dealers are not selling below MSRP (list price). So even though Honda officially offers a 6 speed manual transmission on the LX, sport, and EX models, you really can't seem to find them and the rare dealers that have them won't deal. Does anybody have an idea what to do other than buy the CVT automatic. Hankjoy

    Welcome to the world of supply and demand. You want that car you will have to over pay.. No dealer in there right mind would give you a deal on that vehicle. So my suggestion is Pay the extra $$$ or buy the cvt auto..

  • Question: Are the doc fee's the Title and License or is this separate (just paperwork)?
  • Just paperwork. Try to remove it or reduce the amount.
  • I just got my 2013 Accord EX-L without Nav for 25,5k(including destination fee), with wheel lock, trunk tray. I was quoted by several dealers in the bay area, and their quote is from 25,5k to 25,9k. But you should get a quote online, they now give very competitive price, its much better than negotiate with those guys at the dealership. Good luck!!!

    Finally got my 2013 Accord EX-L without Nav for 25,5k(including destination fee), along with wheel locks, trunk tray. I was surprised that most Honda Dealership in the bay area quoted me from 25,5 to 25,9 price range. My advice is always get the quote online because their price online is so competitive.
    Bernardi Honda - 25,500
    Commonwealth Honda 25,700
    Honda North - 25,900
    Honda Gallary - 25,800.
    Good luck you guys. it's easy to get the car for about 3,000 below the invoice.
  • The offer you got is more than $1000 below invoice!

    I posted a reply earlier on the best price I got amongst several honda dealerships in Central Indiana for a 2013 accord EX-L V6 no navigation, but with options. It was a year-end deal for $28,000 for car, plus $345 for extras (installed splash guards, Body side molding, all season mats, Trunk Tray) and $151.25 document fee; and get a $400 Visa gift card in return.

    I didn't take this offer because at the time (Jan 2nd), I wanted to trade-in my 1996 Camry LE to offset the OTD price. Dealer only gave me $1000 trade-in allowance, which is way below KBB price and below the price that I wanted. Since then, the dealer had increased the price to $28,000 for the car, $597.22 for the options, and no more gift card.

    So, I am still in the search for a best deal for the car.

    Could you provide the name of dealership in Cincinnati Ohio that offers you this price? ($27,200 for car and splash guards & wheel lock). Could you also provide the TTL that they quoted you? As Brian posted in this forum, the dealer use document fee, registration fee, and other fees as part of the OTD price to increase their profit.

    Is it a 4-cyl or V6?

    End of Dec was a great time to buy. I would shoot for Jan 31,, Same rules apply. Email dealers the last day with meet my price i buy toady. This forum is great because you could see what dealers in your area are giving better pricing.... these dealerships are probably the ones you will make your best deal with on the last day.. Sale price of car and doc fee's are the most important info. Your taxes are at your states rate.. Dont be to concern with otd numbers.

  • 3000 below invoice?
  • on the 2013 accords. they told me 0.9 doesn't apply, and quoted me 4.9 despite 750 credit score. seems quite high.

    4cyl.Actually the invoice was 28,775. and I got it for 25,500. I live in Massachusetts though, and i got the deal on 1-2-2013.
  • those guys are playing games with you. best option, get the pre-approval at your local credit union or your bank, bring it to the dealership, if they can beat your rate then go for it, if not finance through your bank. good luck

    Thank you for your experience and knowledge that has helped
    everyone learn more about buying a car.

    Finally, we found Hanlees Toyota (SAC CA) fleet dept. manager Dave to
    sell us a 2012 Camry LE for 19,000$ plus fees. No PD. This is the net
    cost after the 1,000$ rebate from Northern California. This rebate
    is not available in Southern CA.

    The bad news is I rented the 2012 Camry on a trip and was disapointed.
    It had a lot of noise, did not handle that well, and the seats were
    very uncomfortable. Their are other factors too.

    A priority is the seat comfort. The new 2013 Altima has very comfortable
    seats. Also, more leg room than the Camry and Accord.

    The 2013 Accord has enough leg room, but the foot rest protrudes
    much higher than the Altima and Camry. The Altima designers also
    used the previous Camry rear end style that I do not like.

    After knowing these priorities could you make a case for the Altima?
    Your input is greatly appreciated. Also, the Altima has standard
    Key fob
    36mo./36k roadside service
    PD seat standard

    What is the lowest prices in California for Honda Accords?

    Thanks again for your participation in the forum.

    I hear what your saying. I'm 6'1 and 240. My number one concern is seat and size comfort. I think in my opinion the Accord is pound for pound better overall than the Altima.

    The Accords CVT auto is said to be better than altima.. The New altima reviews all say it handles much better than Accord ,Camry, malibu, Passat. Gas mpg are close, tech features close. that being said only your resale value will be better if you buy the Accord. Better pricing is avail on the Altima.

    Bottom line ...............Both cars are a nice buy. The Camry Failed on the front safety crash. I would not put my familys lives in danger no matter what the saving are til problem is corrected...

    Glad i helped you

    Well said Brian:

    Here is the other part of the equation.

    Edmunds sent me a 750.00$ Visa card offer if i buy the 2013 Altima
    before Feb. 2, 2013. Still a little skeptical about the Visa Card. Also, their is a 500$ rebate that CAN be combined with the 750$. It probably
    has a 24 hr. use it or lose it clause. My priority was also the resale difference
    between Honda vs. Nissan.

    What is the difference in price between the 2013 Accord LX and the
    2013 Altima S?

    Is their a price point on the 2 vehicles you would be a buyer, and what
    dealerships in So. or No. CA would you recommend?
