    Open road and Rt 22 wont match any good deal you have. i could tell you this from experience.
    dont bother calling them. I faxed over a quote from another dealership in feb and both could not beat or match it after they sweared up and down just come down we will match/ beat by 500 dollars.. when i questioned the sales managers on there lying practices all i got was these prices are not real.. really is the car sitting in my driveway a mirage.... So be advised on these two dealerships in N.J. there are many more like these 2... you just remove them from your buy list in the future.

    I am already worn out by spending so many hours searching this forum. I talked to Autosport since I believe you said they offered you a car at 1000 below invoice but there was no 'Kerry' but I talked to two others and the best price was only about 150 below invoice with the 299 doc fee included. i thought you said you bought your accord at Weymouth, but I just cant remember or find the exact forum number. Did you call Weymouth for a price or did you register with their website, in which case they give you a price on the site. I think you said you got it for 775 below invoice and negotiated a 25 doc fee. You mentioned Ray Price, last october I went there and they gave me my best price at THAT time, which was about $!60 below invoice inc. doc fee. Is it the Ray Price in Stroudsburg pa and if so how much less than invoice did they quote you? Did you get the price by phone? I am thinking about contacting them again, I had talked to the sales manager. I put everything on hold till now.

    Interesting, I just got off the phone with a sales manager at open road who quoted me a price of 21269 inc dest and doc fee of $400. I told him it was way too much and he claimed that if I brought my lowest price ( which I got via email) from that MDdealership he would match it. But I am glad I just read you post regarding Route 22 and Open Road, because both are over an hour away without traffic and I really didnt believe him. Actually Route 22 dealer is owned by the same person as Hackettstown Honda (which is 5 minutes from my house but wont deal, their price is over invoice. I just cant be driving all over the place to find out these dealers are lying to me. ALot of these dealers will tell you ANYTHING to get you into there showroom!!!! I just dont have the time or gas money to waste.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I am really worn down but would like to make a deal by end of month. So if I remember correctly you paid 23114 plus 359 doc which equals about 23473. I like to work with price plus doc fee, not including reg and NJ tax. According to Edmunds, the invoice on a EXCVT with dest is 24037. This calculated to about 600 off of invoice. Am I working things out right. Do you agree? It does sound like a believeable price. The reason I didnt contact DCH Honda is about two months ago I went to DCH Toyota and they just wouldnt deal on a Camry. But now since reading your post I probably will call them. Did you speak to a sales manager of a saleperson?

    Hi all, is 22,000.00 drive-out a good price for Honda Accord 2013? this dealer initially gave me 22,600. and I offer 22,000. He then he say it is "possible". Anyone can get lower than this? Thanks for any inputs!
  • ziggy25aziggy25a Posts: 24
    I don't know if I have seen any better price posted here. Great deal! I doubt you could have done much better at the end of the month.

    Initially they offered me $23716.00 including the doc fee.. I told the sales person on the phone to send me an email with the otd price.(Previous Experience : Metro Honda tried to add $790.00 on the otd price we agreed on the phone when I went there. This is why email is important. Atleast you have proof in case they lie.) I was able to negotiate down to $23473.00 including doc fee. Also got the wheel locks for free which is about $40.00..(found it with the spare tire in trunk. I don't think salesman knew. ;) ). At first they hasitated but luckily I got phone call from another dealer when I was negotiating. So I got up and started to leave.The sales person ran out in parking lot with sales manager and agreed to sell me with this price. I am not sure if it was a great deal, but after getting rejected at three dealers with that price, I am happy with my purchase..

    Actually, when I first called Autosport and talked to Jane, who was supposedly the sales manager, she said a silver one was 'in transit' due between 3/26 and 4/1. When I called Krystal today, who lied to me and said she was the internet mgr, she said the silver one would be at the dealer by 4/4/13. So they did 'have' one but it was not in stock yet. But thats two associates that lied to me so I am going to cross them off my list....itis highly unlikely they will go below 21,220 no matter who I talk to no matter which day of month. Just my two cents.
  • I have a sales manager who offered me a fair price on the accord I mentioned, around 1,000 below invoice on the sales price, plus tax, title, etc.. He is really stressing that today is the last day he make the offer, now i'm not in too big of a hurry and can afford to wait, but i'd like to have the car soon.

    My point is i'm extremely busy today, and probably can't make it without pulling something magical... would there quarter really end 2 days before the month as far as car sales total go? Y'all think he's full of it?

    >I am already worn out by spending so many hours searching this forum.<

    At some point you have to ask yourself, how much is your time worth? I used this forum to get an idea of a good price. I don't have to find the best one, just don't want to get totally ripped off. Reputation of the dealer service afterwards is also important to me, so I didn't want to shop every possible dealer around. We found our EX-L for a decent price, bought it, and have been enjoying it for two weeks now.
  • mike372mike372 Posts: 354
    You mentioned that your local dealer matched the price Ray Price gave you.That was like 750 less than invoice. Did ray price really give you that much less than invoice taking into consideration the 130 doc fee, because they just offered me about half of that number. And I talked to the manager. It just doesnt seem like these deals that people claim they got in NJ or PA are real.

    Start your calls tomm. your killing yourself getting nowhere today... the dealer i was referring to was price honda in D.E. Not in P.a. if you call price honda speak only to the internet manger. Every model is different on pricing. if by tomm night your at 300 to 600 below invoice make your best deal closest to your house. please go back and read my posts on buying and apply it to your calls tomm........... i keep on posting call as many dealerships tomm and make your best deal by Sat............ Thats were your leverage is in buying.. not today or yesterday........ and most likely not in new jersey... Good luck

    You are right about the effort... but the only way I could see anything happening is by starting a few days before Saturday. Now I find out that Hamilton wants 150 for the wheel locks so that brings up the price with docfee to 21000. Which is the same for others ie price in pa. I dont believe anyone who deals with a PA/NJ dealer will get the car for 500 or more below invoice, its just not going to happen in NJ, whether the last day of the month, the second to the last day or the third to last day. I could be wrong but thats just the way I see it right now. And the MD dealeships, I am beginning to think that if I go there even the last day of the month they will not honor their internet prices. I dont want to drive 3 to 4 hours to find out. Some of these posted MD deals are too good to be true.

    Hi Mike....sounds like you're stressed. Which dealer do you want to do business with?
  • mike372mike372 Posts: 354
    Yes I am more than a bit stressed. I thought I could get the Accord LX CVT in NJ or eastern pa for around 20400 or 20500 inc doc fee but excluding NJ reg and tax. But it looks like its not going to happen. I am reluctant to drive to MD.
    However, I am reconsidering it... just afraid that they will not honor price when I get there. I also thought the deal had to be closed, ie paid for and receipt of car by last day of month but some posters said they actually picked up car following month. I am thinking about putting it off a month, after I try to sort some things out regarding the price. But I am wondering if the end of April would be worst because the weather is getting better by that time and more people are buying as the weather improves. I dont buy new cars often cuz I cant afford to so its important to get a really good deal. But at this point I am thinking about end of April, since no dealers within 1.5 hours will take less than 21000. My long time girlfriend's 2000 civic is still running at 260000 miles and I am trying to negiotiate the car for her just like I did in 2000. At that time I got 11.2% off list and didnt put in nearly the time I have invested so far this time. I just dont like dealing with new car dealers. They are not the most honest business's around, to put as nicely as I can.

    Mike...deep breaths. Someone mentioned, all car deals have their own dynamic. Some (OK, a lot) of the deals reported here are fiction. Plus, trade-ins, accessories, add-ons, credit scores, stock levels, etc. affect each and every deal. So, no two are alike.

    The drive to buy exactly at the end of the month isn't necessary. Dealers are motivated to sell cars every day of the week, month, quarter. A slow day, a rainy/snowy day, a cold Tuesday night, etc....all could be construed as the ideal time to motivate a dealer to make a deal. Dealers are always motivated to make deals, on all days. It's why they exist. Maybe....HUGE MAYBE if a dealer needs one more car sale for end of year bonuses, you ould possibly save a few more dollars making a deal at the end of business on December 31........MAYBE!

    The ideal time to buy is when you're ready to buy. $21,000 is a good deal.

    Nothing wrong if you want to wait until April. Deals should not be significantly different then, than they are over the next couple of days.

    If I am to believe the prices I see people posting here, I didn't do all that well. But in the interest of sharing, I grabbed a Modern Metal 6spd for invoice + $150 in doc fees, plus $54 in title fees, and tax of course. Used Honda's 1.9% financing. No options or dealer accessories, no pinstripes or glass etching, no undercoating or extended warranties, though (almost) all were offered. The "gray" cars are relatively hard to find in these parts (NE Indiana)... the one I bought I apparently stumbled upon the same night it rolled off the truck... and the black ones are not exactly numerous, either. I did get offers from dealers as low as $21,900 (no car in stock with a 6spd) and as high as $22,300 (also no car in stock). I suppose I could've negotiated harder for a few hundred sheckels but I'm pretty happy with the outcome. A good deal on a good car. I did have a trade-in, but that wasn't part of the original offer. The price was independent of trade-in. This was the only negotiating I did, where the price of my trade-in was lower than I wanted, and they bumped it up to a level I was happy with, without trying to take it out of my hide elsewhere.

    I ended up at Tom Wood Honda in Anderson, IN. I dealt with a woman named Kelli (sp?) after getting a price via Consumer Reports' car buying service. Tom Wood has the look of an old-school dealership but didn't hammer me with upselling or treat me like I had just fallen off the turnip truck. Wish I could say the same for the dealer in Fort Wayne, which was an enraging experience best saved for another time, but involved what I feel was a bait-and-switch advertisement offering 0.9% on "all new in-stock 2013 Hondas", where "all" didn't include the Accord but that wasn't specified. That wasn't the only issue but it was a biggie.

    Thanks for the reply. I agree with everything you said, including the fact that alot of deals posted here are simply not true. Or there really is a trade even though they say there is not,etc. I say this because all the dealers are coming in at around 21000 plus reg and NJ tax. That is, all who are willing to give a good no BS price. The only exception to this is the dealer in MD. And who knows, I could drive 3.5 to 4 hours only to find out it is not true. And from my prior experience in negotiating cars for members of my family over the years, alot (obviously not ALL) of car salespeople are very distinquished in the art of lying. I am a car nut, having an intense interest in cars since before I could drive ( I have three of my own, all older models). So, with that said, I just may wait another month. But my girlfriend really needs a car soon, as she drives 20000 miles a year and her current car has 260,000 miles on it.
