  • No, it was a V4. No complaints.
  • It was 26K - 500 (flex cash) = 25,500.
    The negotiation went too fast for my liking. Know that I did not get the best possible deal, but the trade in was dripping oil, and wanted to get a new car as soon as possible.

    I asked for 25K + 1,200 for my trade in. The counter offer was for 25.5 + 1000 for the trade in. Ended up with 25.5 K + 1200 for the trade in (99 Camry with 240K miles, check engine light on..)

    Just so there's no confusion for other readers, there is no "v4" - it's an I4.

    A V-4? Really?

    Haven't heard of one of those since a fifties Simca!

    I am also from SD and looking to purchase an EX. Do you mind sharing with me the name of the dealership where you made your purchase?

    Is this a decent price for a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan EXL?
    $25625 + $768.75 + $69 Tag + $499 Dealer Fee = $26961.75 - $500 Flex Cash = $26461.75

    Is that a V6 or I4?

    V6 .. you got yourself the best deal I have seen bro .. dont second guess it and buy it asap ..

    If its I4 .. i think you should be able to do better .. considering the 2014 version is just around the corner :)
  • tegintegin Posts: 5
    It's an I4. Didn't mean to leave that out. How much better of a deal do you think can be had? This is the best offer I have come across so far.
  • In Bay Area ca .How much should I pay for an Accord V6 EX-L OTD PRICE?
    MSRP $30800 . Please help thank you
  • Your sale price is $25625 - $500 Flex cash = $25,125, plus TTL. I do agree with suri V that you can do better than that.

    Read some of the past forum comments for advice on how to get the best deal. Normally, the best deals can be had at the end of the month when most dealerships are trying to meet their sales quota.

    Where are you located? How many dealerships have you already contacted for e-quotes? If you are not in a rush to buy a new car, then wait a few more weeks to contact any more dealers. In the mean time, keep doing more research.

    Good luck.

    I am in southeast NC, and I have contacted about 8 dealers within about 100 miles, after that the distance becomes a factor. The base (invoice?) price listed in consumer reports for this area is $25,809. The price quote of $25,625-$500 flex cash puts me at 25,125 which is $700 below invoice (If I am doing the math/deal correctly). How much lower should I be shooting for? The location I live in puts me at a significant disadvantage as the closest metropolitan area is at least a couple of hours away. Thanks for your insight, and feedback.
  • MSRP for the EX-L is $28,785 (including destination). Invoice in the northeast is $26,399 (including destination).

    Have you tried to counter the dealer's price? A good deal deal is anywhere from $1200 - $1500 below invoice. Since you stated there are not a lot of dealers in your area, getting close to $1000 below invoice before flex cash would be a good deal.

    Do you need to buy asap or can you wait till the end of the month? The best deals can be had at the end of the month.

    Here are the numbers for this area out of C.Reports.

    Base Subscriber Price

    $27,995 $25,809

    Destination Fees

    + $790 + $790

    Total

    $28,785 $26,599

    I can wait until the end of the month; however, that could limit the ability to get the color I want. Should I base my offer $12- $1500 below $26,599, or use $25,809 as my starting point? I don't want to turn the dealership off by presenting an unreasonable offer.
  • I would base your offer off the invoice price including destination. You could aim for $1200 and hope to get a sale price close to $1000 below invoice.
    Since the best deal you have so far is $700 below invoice, an extra $300 off before flexcash could be possible.

    If you were shopping at the end of the month, I would have recommended to aim for $1500 below invoice.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Tegin,
    Here is my suggestion. Your problem is not enough dealerships in your area. this means you need to make your best deal within 100 miles. The list of dealerships i give you are mostly in S.C. they very well may be out of your range.

    I want you to call all of these dealerships internet dept/ Manager. let each dealership know you would consider making the 5 hour trip to there dealership for 1500 below invoice plus any flex cash they have to offer for financing thru honda, Collect your best deals with further dealerships and try to make dealerships in N.C. match or beat. You might even consider if the pricing is right to make that extended trip.

    The problem you are going to find is getting a good price on the 10th of the month. You need to start your buying process the last week buying the last 2 days, last day. The S.C. dealers will realize you are fishing for pricing and might not want to budge on a starting offer. The magic words when your buying a vehicle is... I'm buying right now this minute ..Yes or No.

    Stevenson honda..............n.c
    Bryan honda.....................n.c
    Goodwin automall...............s.c
    Hendrick honda ..................s.c.
    East Coast honda ...............s.c. ... high volume dealership /this is who may give you the best deal in S.c.

    700 below invoice price with flex cash added into that number is a Terrible deal. Then if you pay a high doc fee charge your giving this dealer a huge profit on your sale.

    Good luck

  • You are right on that, Brian:

    "The problem you are going to find is getting a good price on the 10th of the month. You need to start your buying process the last week buying the last 2 days, last day."

    BTW, I will let you know what happens at the end of the month with my search for a good deal on the EX-L.

    Or you could figure, what is your time worth? If you like the dealer, and it is close to you, and a fair deal but maybe not the absolute bottom amount, isn't that good enough? Everyone has to set their priorities.

    You take all those factors you mentioned when buying your vehicle into consideration. 90% of this forum should be looking for a fair price on where the market is in there area. Knowing your area's price is the key.

    You use this forum to gauge your area's selling price and the boarding states market value. you then can make a good deal on what is the true market value. know you feel good about your purchase with the knowledge of what you learned and the deal you recieved.

    leave bottom line pricing to guys like me. your not getting what i can. I have no loyalty to one dealership i'm driven by price in the area i choose to buy.

    Thats the difference i will cover 3 or 4 states within striking range of nyc. Buying online/ by phone on last days of the month. Minimal time wasted for the sale that day.

    How ever you choose to buy is your business. just reading these posts on pricing will help you.
