    A question for you.

    I've been out of the business for a couple of years but knowing what I know your deal doesn't seem remotely possible.

    Why an EXL Accord? Do you really "need" an EXL or could you settle for what is now a well equipped LX? That could possible work...maybe.

    For Bethpa - I see what Isell is getting at - you can probably jump into an LX for 5-6k less than an EXL. I have not pulled the trigger on one of these yet, but when I visited a dealer for a close look, I was really surprised with what they did with the LX. It's got many standard bells and whistles now that weren't there before unless you sprung for an EXL (alloys, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio, 4 wheel disc, and more). Just something to think about.

    bethpa, stop thinking about getting an EX-L, not because you should be thinking LX since you appear to be financially sound, but because you need to concentrate on getting a good deal on the Civics.
    If you got the Civics at the low end of Brian’s range of $1,200 - $1,800 under invoice and applied the current residual and money factors, the lease payment including the $595 lease inception fee would be $174. At the high end, $157.
    Your deal requires $2995 down. For a 27 month lease, every $1000 decrease in the capitalized cost of the car increases the payment by about $38, so your lease would be $203. I’m also inclined to believe that if you looked at the dealer’s ad, the $2995 is considered a cap cost reduction and makes no mention of the lease inception fee being included so if you put that into the lease, it would now be $225.
    If you go to the Honda website, they have an advertised deal of zero due at signing and then 35 payments of $210. The lease inception fee is included. They also say that the cap cost of the car is $19,194 so when you deduct the $595 fee, the selling price is actually $18,599 which is $176 over invoice. Not a good deal but better than yours. In fact, dealers love people going for the nationally advertised deal since there is always a large profit margin in them, thought they will complain to you that they hate these deals but are forced to do them.
    Also, never put money down on a lease. If the car is totaled or stolen, you lose everything you paid at signing. I recommend you put everything into the lease including doc fee and title/registration and asking for 36 equal monthly payments. The check you give them when you pick up the car should be the same amount as your monthly payment.
    Incidentally, if you go to the Weymouth Honda website’s lease calculator, you’ll find that their Civic lease is for around $1,000 under invoice, so if you don’t like to negotiate, take the kids to Boston :) .

    Funny thing is one of my kids did see the Weymouth dealer site and it looks like they are one of the best for pricing I have seen. We're in eastern PA so depending on what happens with my dealers I've contacted I might just work something out with them.

    For the record, 4 dealers were contacted and none have replied back in almost 24 hours. I find that hard to believe but I guess selling cars these days must be very good.

    I received an email from a dealership on in the DC area for an EX-L NAVI for $25883 not including tax. I am in Seattle, where the prices are atleast $3000 more. But before I start booking a ticket to head to the DC area, I wanted to check if there are any other areas in the country offering good deals on the EXL-NAVI based on y our experiences.
    thank you.
  • Prices are cheap in DC compared to MA. I am in the market for an EX-L without nav.

    Was there any Flex cash included?

    If you decide to get pricing from Weymouth honda contact Herb Chambers honda also up in M.A. These two dealerships dont like each other. Reference that you are dealing with them also for pricing.

    Pricing in M.D is very aggressive with some of the best prices in the country on Accords, CRV, and Civic. Here are just a few to contact with getting your targeted price on the lease.

    Criswell
    Sport
    Anderson
    Pohanka. great prices has been killing the other honda dealerships in pricing.dealership had flex cash last month.

    Ourisman

    One of these dealers in M.D. will lease you a 2013 Civic on the low end of 1000 below invoice matching Weymouth starting ad offer pricing.

    I would send out emails and make your calls letting these dealerships know you are buying/Leasing at the end of Aug. here is what i am looking for .. You could quietly negotiate thru this month with dealers making a good deal at the end. Beginning and middle of the month buying is a waste of time. I would reccomend you start your buying process the last week of the month and making your best deal the on the very last days in Aug.

    If your going to fly across the country the selling dealership needs to fax to you the .....Buyers order...bill of sale. Once you both sign it you then hold vehicle with a credit card deposit til you get there.

    Do not attempt to go there first without buying vehicle via phone and fax

    Is it really worth going thru all that . Thats even alittle to extreme for me and i'm a nut job when it comes to getting good pricing.

    In your case i would consider a 8 to 10 hour bus or car ride round trip in your area with a dealership giving you the best price .

    Re-Check your prices and model i doubt highly a 3000 dollar difference in your area to D.C.. Up to 1k might be more likely

    I took a train to NOVA purchase the first Hyundai Sonata Hybrid sedan sold in Virginia in late April, 2011. Not very expensive.

    Was interested in an accord. I don't think they make a car with the options that I want. Resident experts, please lmk.

    Looking for white with black leather, navigation and satellite radio. Seems like the sport has white with leather but without xm radio. The push button start is also nice to have. Thx in advance.

    Welcome - you should be able to research all the option and pricing info you need by navigating to the new car section on this site and going to the 2013 Honda Accord.

    the EX-L with Nav is the closest to what you are looking for. I have the sport which comes with some standard features the EXL doesn't (and love the vehicle) but the sport does not come with leather or push button start.

    They all share the same engine and transmission - car is fantastic. No buyers remorse on my part. Don't think you will be disapointed.
  • ken117ken117 Posts: 189
    Criswell, Sport, and Pohanka can offer great pricing. Best to check with all three as pricing can fluctuate. Beware of the F&I at Criswell. They can be OK but best to be alert. Really, that is true for any dealer.

    IMHO best to avoid Ourisman and College Park Honda. Too many games. On my last four buys I tried them but found the hoops the presented too annoying. I found better deals without the hoops elsewhere.

    Hi. Thx. I'm choosing between the Fusion and Accord. I don't buy cars that often and now I remember the frustration on having to piece together all these options that I want. I've never had leather and think I want it. I love the white exterior, but the exl only comes with beige leather. I would think as you went up, there'd be an "everything" option. Sometimes other locations have different color combos. I'm in nj.
  • What's your budget?
  • vservser Posts: 48
    Budget is flexible. Haven't had a new car in 12 years. I'm due. So about 30k if need be.
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 436
    You might consider aftermarket leather - sometimes better than what comes with the car.
  • Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows the price range for a factory installed security alarm for a 2013 Honda Accord? And it is true that you can only deal with the finance department of the dealer for the deal on the security alarm? I emailed the salesman that I was buying from and he told me to discuss the pricing of the security alarm when I am in the finance department. He told me he has no authority over that price.

    John - you should be able to discuss pricing on that before going into finance if they really want to sell you the car. Are you dealing with the Internet sales folks? Go to the next level if you have to. You are making a 20k plus purchase - they should provide the info you need to make a decision. Have you agreed to pricing on the car yet?

    Bill G

    Also, brian125 is knowledgeable in pricing on aftermarket alarms - he can probably help.
  • Yes me and the internet salesman agreed on the price. $24,800 for a 2013 Honda Accord EX sedan. Some people were reporting getting $24,500 in my location, but I feel like that price is fair enough for me. After we agreed on the price he said to discuss the alarm when I am in the finance department which seems weird to me.
