    Brian's right, it's just to check out the latest models and concept cars. Of course, if you're looking for some free tote bags, water bottles or toys (my son now has a pretty cool stuffed VW Beetle), it's definitely the place to go. All time best was getting a $50 voucher if I test drove an Explorer.

  • We're cool. brian125 has been a wealth of information on this board. So have others. My post wasn't exactly short, perhaps an editor would have helped me. On the other hand, brian125 could use some punctuation and spell-checking, but none of us is perfect.

    Besides, I forget all the negative comments when I'm zooming around less-impressive vehicles on Bay Area freeways.

    Thanks for having my back, though, huskerfan5.


    P.S. I started a post about driving impressions, but I'm all alone. After you buy, come share how your new baby drives.
  • Hi, I am also looking for a LX CVT in bayarea. After quoting 10+ dealers in Bayarea, currently, I get a OTD 22800 already. It seems still far from bottom line. But I don't know how to step further in the price research.

    I typically go every year to the local show, often with a friend who is in the market - even if I am not currently.
    The value I see is the ability to check things like back seat room & access, or control layouts, of 2 or 3 comparable models withing 5 minutes.
    Much easier to compare things 'back-to-back-to-back'
    when they are located only feet from each other, rather than
    having to drive to different dealerships.
    Just my 0.02 gallons worth of advice...

    Going back in March.

    Anyone receive a good deal on a 2013 Honda Accord LX in LA county recently? I can't seem to get dealers to budge on even 23k OTD. Maybe I have to wait till the end of the month
  • Hello,
    I'm planning to get a new Accord 2013 sedan around March-April. I usually keep cars for atleast 5 years .If I want to buy the car, can you suggest me if I should go for leasing and purchase after the 3 year lease(pay interest on remaining period only) or go for financing straight from the start. Also, how much it would cost me for an LX model.

    Finally going to take the plunge. I would suggest you lease if you drive less than 10k a yr. Cheaper price on lease.. Keep your cars in excellent shape. Cant come up with a decent down payment. Otherwise i would buy. I think by the time you are ready to buy/ lease the Accord there will be leasing money support from Honda corp. There are no incentives now. If you go into the leasing forum i'm sure somebody could tell you what you might pay to buy out a 3 year lease on the Accord.

  • St. Louis, MO

    $22,490 (not including TTL)
    All Weather Mats
    Cargo Net
    Auto Butler Service - thrown in by the dealer at the end when they weren't budging on price
    2 years maintenance

    Went in on 12/31/12 - crappy weather, not a whole lot of people at the dealership but still a below average buying experience. Wasn't the primary salesman, he fired off a quote out of nowhere that was just under MSRP to which we both laughed as it was > $1K higher than the advertised sale price on their website. He was either lazy or couldn't find the right model / color on his lots as we had to pull in another associate to check their inventory ("oh, yeah, I guess we do have it").

    Probably could have done better than that but this was the best of the 3 dealerships we visited.

    I'm currently finding the lowest quoted around 22,800 OTD. This is with cook county sales tax.
  • Just stopped into Atlantic Honda in Bay Shore, NY and was quoted a price of 23,178. Advised her before they gave me a price that I already had a price quote from a neighboring dealership of $500 under invoice and was looking to do better than that, the salesman whom was very knowledgeable and nice came back with the manager who gave me the price above which is $249 above invoice and almost $800 higher than my original price. She swore up and down about how the other dealership will probably sneak in some miscellaneous fees or change the price on me and that If she sells for anything less than invoice, her dealership is losing money. When asked how the other dealer can sell for much less and I'm looking to do even better than that, her reply was that my other offer is a great deal and I should jump on it. I am in no rush to pickup the new accord, the longer I wait the greater the likelihood that I either A) get a better deal or B) buy a completely different make and model. I suggested she can contact me towards the end of the month if she wants and she stated that it makes no difference, the whole end of the month thing is a myth and that her dealership meets their quota 4, 5 or even 6 days before the end of each month. They play a pretty good game, but research tells it all, the dealerships make money a whole host of ways, including meeting or exceeding sales goals, incentives, etc.....she said her dealership is a higher volume dealership and they sell 20-30 accords per month, which to me doesn't seem like that many. Any input from anyone?????
  • Thanks for the reply. Yes i drive less than 10k miles in a year. I was thinking for leasing too.

    Rule of thumb is that it usually doesn't pay to lease if you are expecting to definitely keep the car. Honda lease money factor for excellent credit is .00155 which equates to an interest rate of 3.72% and you have to pay the $595 Honda Finance lease fee at inception which you wouldn't have it you purchased. I would expect you to do better financing.
    My wife recently did a deal on a Volvo and based on the MF and conquest rebate, it would come very close though I would never have considered purchasing anyway.

    G- lover you will waste 1 to 3 hours each time you walk into dealerships. trying to haggle over price. Especially in the middle of the month .. you have no leverage.. Time would be better spent on line one hour out of your day emailing 50 dealerships in and around your area/ out of state as far as you want to travel. Ask every dealer for there best price and all out the door pricing.. there dealership charges. You need to know every dealers doc fee..Most important.. IF 25 breakdown what you asked them keep them on your list,,, the rest toss in the trash. What ever number they quote you does not matter yet .. The last couple of days before the end of the month you ask all your targeted dealership if they would be willing to match or beat your best price from the high volume Dealerships . Not disclosing your numbers yet. But letting them know dealers like Anderson and WEymouth honda will give you hassel free e- quote of $900 below delears invoice.. This lets each dealership know your not Bs them.. they have to step up to the plate or lose out.. By using this kind of approach you are weeding out all the bad dealerships and narrowing down the best dealerships who will meet your target price..

    new rochelle
    Hillside ... i'm sure there are more in N.y.
    All have doc fee's of $75.. these dealerships and others like them can match and maybe beat the bigger dealers.

    Hi. I am also in St. Louis. Bommarito?

    I kicked myself for not shopping at the end of the year. But it looks like they haven't really budged on pricing for the Sport. Also the inventory for Sports look pretty low, but the LXs are plentiful. I am going this weekend and I am preparing myself for foolishness.
  • Thanks Brian, I really wanted to go in person to Look at the ex and sport models as I was undecided and I need to know for sure before I contact dealerships asking for a price. Can anybody tell me what their best negotiated price before any TTL but including destination charge. Also I had thought invoice (including destination) was 23,127 on a Sport. The dealership today told me that invoice was 22,929 which is even less. Thanks.
  • Just purchased the 2013 accord lx from DCH Aacademy Honda this saturday.

    Car price: 20483(include 790 destination fee)
    7% NJ tax: 1433.85
    NJ tire fee: 7.5
    Doc fee: 299
    Registration/Title : 276

    Total : 22499
  • Congratulations on your new Accord and thanks for posting all the details. Pretty good price.

    Just got it for a car price of $22,200 in WI (incl dest). Included Splash guards, wheel locks, paint protection.

    I went to the dealer and showed them which showed 1 person in my area paid between 22,192 - 22,395.
  • Could you please mention which dealership it was? And also could you please split the total cost?
