    I agree - folks come to this forum for advice and there are a certain few who choose to berate them instead of helping and advising.
  • $24,678 isn't bad for Sport CVT. I bought the same exact model for 24500 OTD and I live in Illinois (8.25% tax). My initial offer was 21539 + 790 dest. fee. After all the figures were on the table, I negotiated down to 24500.

    I even got an offer for 23500 OTD when I just started shopping around so you could go lower now that Honda is giving a better incentives and all.

    Plus, all those add-ons by probably don't "need" them. Dealers do that to raise the price but you probably know this by now.

    I think its a good starting point. You want to buy this vehicle on March 31.
    being you have a trade in i would hit at least 5 or more dealerships to see if you could get more on your trade in. Make your best deal last day of this month. the sale price of the Accord you should get lower on last day. take the lowest prices you seen in this forum and shoot for that price or lower..

    Do not buy before march 31. This is the first quarters end for all Car companies........ Dealers need and want those sales quotes and incentives from the Honda corp.

    I called alot of dealerships in new york. post what area your looking to buy i will help you........................ if needed

    i'm not sure how far you want to drive to get trade in prices. your best bet is to target as many dealerships around your area. i live in NYC area so i did not go looking for pricing that far upstate. Try Friendly honda they are high volume and Yonkers Honda.. Call Internet sales mngr Rich he is real good over there.

    Here are some dealers by or outside Albany

    Lia honda

    best i could do for you......Good luck

    It's O'Hare Honda in Des Plaines. They were also offering 1.9% financing.
    But I gotta say this -- when I walked away from that price and decided to buy the car the next day they counter offered me for 24500 OTD.

    Are you in Chicagoland area?

    I got the following quote from a dealer in GA. Is it a good deal?

    Base Price (incl. destination) $19,770
    Title/License $ 42
    Documentation Fee $ 599 (usually $399~599 in GA)
    One time Ad Valorem Tax (6.5%) $ 1,350 (estimated;may vary)
    Total (drive-out price) $21,761

    Thanks blk_acrd_sprt.
    I am in Dallas Texas and I think the price is higher down here.
    Thinking about get the car in Chicago or Boston and have it ships to Dallas :)
  • Last month I was given a price on an EX-L of $26,500 at my local dealer. At the time I was looking to trade in my 2010 Accord EX-L which they originally were going to give me 16k for and later upped that to 17k. I ended up selling my 2010 myself and am now needing to work out a deal for the 2013. Is the 26,500 a reasonable price? This includes the destination fee. I would also have a $40 doc fee plus 6% KY taxes. I was really hoping to get a lower price and maybe some all season mats thrown in. Do you think that is pushing too far? I want to go in prepared this weekend!
  • ziggy25aziggy25a Posts: 24
    I don't think you are pushing too hard. In fact if you sign up at weymouth honda's website, you will see their internet pricing for the ex-l is 25,519 plus their doc fee of about 279, so you are about 800 over their price. Is 26,500 reasonable? Sure, it probably is better than the average deal, but you aren't pushing too hard.
  • Thanks for the advice!! I am really looking forward to getting my new car!

    Basically before TT&L (which is state specific), you are at 19770+599=20369 for the LX model. That is within $169 of the best deal i've seen posted on this site which was about 20.2k (search for post 28851 for details). Use your best judgment but it's a good deal this

    ref 28982
    Have you tried the wyler dealerships in Florence or Frankfort? They are very competitive up here where i am in the Cincy area. use carwoo if it's available near you...this data from weymouth for comparison only:
    MSRP including destination $28,785.00
    Sale Price $25,527.71
    Residual $16,983.15 (59% of MSRP)
    Financing 0.00107 money factor

    Thank you for the comment. As soon as purchasing the car at the price (I want to make sure), I will add the dealership info in another post.

    Hey brian,

    I live in the NYC area as well and i'm also shopping for an EX CVT. I've just started contacting dealers through truecar and carwoo, but I would love to get some insight based on the research you've done already. Is there a dealership that you can recommend for me for a hassle free deal?

    I'm looking to buy by March 31st.

    Once you figured out your target buying price. Call as many dealerships on march 31 to see who will meet your price.
    DO NOT BUY VEHICLE BEFORE MARCH,31. You will get best price and deal from these dealers on that day. Unless a dealer meets your price on the 30th..

    1000 below invoice or lower is where your asking number should be. That you need to figure out.
    Contact all high volume dealerships on march 30 to see where the market is for your model. Call these dealerships first... Tell each dealership you will buy that moment if they meet your asking price.

    1-Weymouth , Herb Chambers, Bosch in M.A.. doc fee's 249 to 300
    2-Price honda ...D.E..............299
    3-Friendly.. N.Y..... DOC fee...75
    4- New Rochelle.....doc..........75
    5- Yonkers...........................75
    Adjust your sale price to compensate dealers doc fee's.

    New york price would be 1075 below invoice
    M.A.. would be ..1249 and 1300 hundred below dealers invoice.

    I would try calling these dealerships on march 31 for the sale
    Hamillton, Autosport, Paul Miller in N.J
    Paragon,Bay ridge,Hillside Honda in N.Y.

    If you want to do some good research to help your end of the month sale. I would suggest calling every dealership mentioned plus others and ask each dealership the name and number or email of each dealerships Internet sales manager so you could contact directly on last days / day of the month. this avoids wasted time on purchase day

    There are 2 poster who bought in N.Y that bought your model hopefully they will post dealership.

    Brian, you keep posting "don't buy a car before March 31". Do you realize that is Easter Sunday and many if not most dealerships will be closed? Not to mention many people probably have family gatherings to attend and wouldn't be leaving the family Easter get together to go haggle at a dealership.
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,424
    You are correct. Dealerships last day of the quarter will be march 30. You could start your process on the thur, 28th or 29th buying... Sat the 30th.
