2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Should the sale price includes taxes too?

    Brian - looks like he's saying he paid 1051 below invoice which includes the 500 graduate credit - not a great deal but not too bad - now if flex cash is in there, the dealer made out. Flex cash was not listed in his itemization though (can you get both?)

    The college rebate helped his deal. His buying Sale price was not good for Aug. Yes he could of got both if there was flex. Another factor in his pricing could of been a supply and demand in stock or lack of dealerships in his area.

    John on the breakdown on accord ex purchase you have to add dmv, and taxes along with any other dealer fee's for the final OTD price.

    If you read most of my posting i only concentrate on That models invoice price w/ dest charge and how much below the deal is for. Dmv and taxes in your state are meaningless to me and everyone else who dont live there. Every state has a different tax rate, and dmv charge making most OTD numbers different in each state.

    This is a common post that is useless to everyone

    i bought a 2013 exl for 30k otd did i do good.

    The only 3 important pieces of info we need to tell if its a good deal is

    Agreed Selling price and dealers doc fee' charge.

    Is dest/ charge included in selling price yes or no.

    All dealerships work of the same invoice price... East coast or West coast
    if your numbers are off on pricing you have the wrong price info.

  • Brian,

    I have not purchased it yet, what should be my target price with flex and college rebate?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Depending on your Area and the Supply and Demand factor on your model

    1000 to as high as 1700 below invoice price should be your target price for the sale of your model. Any rebates/incentives like college grad/ Flex cash is added after taxes are applied to your bill of sale.

    Do not let dealers get you to your asking price by applying your incentives in that price. Your target price to buy is your first negotiation with all dealerships. that is the only thing you discuss/ negotiate till he meets your price or dealer counters with this is my lowest price . If this cant be achieved you walk out and leave and go to the next dealership.

    Example: I will buy today for 1300 below invoice. i will also be financing thru you so i could get the additional flex cash of 500 your dealership is offering. I am also entitled to 500 for being a college grad. Always be in control of the negotiation process. If your asking a dealer for a price your not in control and he/she will walk all over you. Read thru prior posting to get a feel for pricing and buying techniques.

    Call several dealerships first to see who is offering flex cash and try to make a deal with those dealerships first.

    College grad incentive your entitled to get with every dealership so that one dont worry about.

    Can I ask which dealer you got the EXL V6 for in NJ? I will be in the market for one in about 9 months in the NJ area.
  • Price (including destination charge) $ 22,611.00
    Documentation fee(s) (not gov't. fee) $ 80.00
    Taxable Total: $ 22,691.00
    8.00% Sales tax $ 1,815.28
    Subtotal with taxes: $ 24,506.28
    Registration (title) and license fees† $ 250.00
    Additional Official fee: Tire Fee $ 37.75
    FINAL PRICE $ 24,794.03

    For a 2013 Honda Accord EX Sedan Automatic. Dealer's Invoice based on KBB is $24,037 and the Fair Purchase Price is $24,002. But those number seems like it does not includes taxes and all the fees. If it is just based on selling price alone it seems like I got 1,300 off total invoice?

    Hi John - looking forward to what Brian says but that looks like 1346 below invoice factoring in the dealer doc fee. Is this Cerritos? They are pretty high volume dealer, so they should have flex cash? I wish Honda would just forget this flex cash stuff and provide a straight forward rebate and be done with it.
    Good work on your part!

    EX sedan Invoice w/ dest charge= $24,037

    Your deal is 1426 below invoice price. great job so far.... minus your doc fee and thats how i gauge your deal. If i was buying at the end of the month i might be able to negotiate a little lower. Your in the target zone.

  • Yeah it is the one in Cerritos, the guy mentioned that the flex cash expired last month for them. I am not sure it is just them or all Honda Dealers in socal. None of the ones I talked with have mentioned anything about flex cash.
  • Hello,

    I am new here and have beem reading A LOT. Thank you everyone for the information. I am looking to buy an Accord LX 2013 Sedan and will shoot for 1800 under invoice in the Los Angeles area at the end of this month.

    Just out of curiosity, is Honda's 1.9% financing good for purchases over 60 months? Let's say for 66 or 72 months...

  • I haven't called any dealerships here in So Cal yet but can anyone confirm that none of them are offering flex cash this month? If not, would it be smart to ask for free oil changes/tinted windows/wheel locks to close the deal?

    Hey thrice - welcome to the forum. Pick John's brain because he's close to a 1400 below invoice deal - he went about this methodically and it looks like he will do well. If you take this down to the last few days of the month, you might be able to get to 1800 below. Make sure you work exclusively with the Internet Sales depts and it will make your job easier. Good luck - study this forum for good advice.

  • Sounds good, will do. Thanks Bill.

    I am reading non-stop!!!

    Great! Be on the lookout for brian125's advice - I think he's negotiated more deals than all the rest of us combined.

    Trying to find deal currently with Accord EX-L with no navi in Indiana.

    Best I have found is 27,000 - 500 (dealer cash) + tax + 150 admin fee. that's it. Destination fee is already included.

    This deal also includes spoiler, alarm system with extra remote, splash guards, mats in front and trunk all installed.

    Trying to determine if this is good price. I have sourced the parts from handaaccessories for 841.
  • Meant to say the remote start is included with an extra fob instead of alarm.

    Hi. I am in the Philadelphia area and have contacted at least a dozen dealerships in the PA, NJ, & DE area for pricing on the LX model accord. Most of the dealers are right around $20,500 and won't go below that number, some even have the gall to claim they are losing money below that number. The best I have so far is right around $20,000 with total out the door cost of $21,500.

    Is this a good deal?

    You may find it beneficial to contact Honda dealers in the DC area. Several seem to have a robust Internet sales focus. IMO, best are Sport Honda, Criswell Honda, Northwest Honda, and Pohanka Honda. Best to avoid, IMHO, Ourisman Honda and College Park Honda.
