2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    2014's...... if you could find a dealership willing to sell at Invoice price or no more than 500 above invoice price on the new ones you should consider buying. Otherwise the 2013 is where you will find some great deals.

    My neighbor in N.Y. who i helped buy her 2013 Accord 3 month ago told me that she inquired about a 2014 at 2 dealerships for her daughter

    Both dealerships were at sticker price and the second called back to tell her they would go 500 below MSRP.

    "If you are referred to a salesperson, ask him/her to show you the lowest price paid for the model you are interested in. You don't need to see the buyers names or any personal info. Walk out if it does not happen."

    m, if I'm the salesman, I will pull out an order where I made a big, fat profit and tell you that we really need to make our quota and you can have the car for $100 less than that person paid. And then I will tell you to please not tell anyone because we can never go that low again.
  • huskerfan5,

    You are right. It is bad advice asking the salesperson to give you the lowest price paid for the car you are interested in.

    There is enough good information and advice on this forum for anyone to be able to buy a new Honda below invoice without much negotiation. On the other hand, if you are someone like me who is looking for a good deal then you need to apply some of Brian's suggestions.

    At the end of the day, you should always do your research. i.e. know the invoice price of the car you are buying, incentives being offered such as flex cash and college grad discount, and if you are in no rush, negotiate a deal at the end of the month with either the internet sales manager or the sales manager of a dealership.

    Internet sales rep giving you an online quote are in no position to negotiate. You would just be wasting your time if you even try to.

    In all my years of car shopping/dealing, I have never heard of this tactic. Who would seriously think this would be successful, or that you would receive legitimate information?

    Let's hope he just thought he came up with a bright idea and didn't actually use that approach. Or perhaps he brings a portable lie detector with him :)
  • When you say 1500 below invoice should be target is that with destination charge or without?

    Looking to get Accord Sport Manual which invoice is 22,199 so 1500 hundred less is 20,700. Would that be target price or add the 790 dest charge to make target price 21,490?
  • Does anyone have experience with Katzkin leather? Some of the dealerships in town have this option and I'm considering it for the 2013 Accord Sport.

    At the dealership, they had a price of $2500 for this upgrade, but the salesperson said that it was negotiable. I'm just wondering how negotiable?!

    Thanks for any input.

    Invoice price and dest/ charge are 2 separate prices. add dest/ charge to your 1500 below price.

    Katzkin leather car seats with single tone on the ex ,sport, or lx are $790. Installation runs anywhere from 375 to 500 dollars depending on who does it.
    multi tones and heated seats would be alittle more.

    1300 hundred compared to dealerships price 2500

  • Hi Brian,

    Destination included, what doable sale price (destination included, doc fees not included) should we aim for during next week? 24.5K 25K?

    I don't want to make an offer where folks will laugh back at me, though that has not been the case thus far.

    Much regards,

    It depends on what model you want and dealerships stock. You def. need a starting target price. What did you have in mind and what area

  • Does anyone have an idea what effect the release of the 2014 pricing and changes (effectively the same cars) should have on pricing for the 2013s? When would that factor apply -- does it apply right now, say, or only when the 2014s arrive on lots, for example?

    I'm sorry I don't have any concrete sense of this and appreciate any info on what leverage this may provide.

    Take a look at post #30560; and all the responses that followed.

    I hope that helps.

    $22,199 for the Sport Manual includes destination, it is $21,409 plus $790 destination.
  • Just got a price quote for 2013 EXL V6 Accord Sedan:

    Navigation - $29,866

    No Navigation - $ 28,042

    The pricing includes the Destination fee, and also $500 discount is included in that quoted price for financing through Honda.

    This is in the NY/ Long Island area.

    How is flex cash added into the price of the vehicle? After tax, right?

    So if I'm trying to figure out an OUT THE DOOR PRICE that includes flex cash, it would be (theoretically):

    2013 Accord Sport:

    $22,929 - $1500 = $21,429 + $1,360.75 (6.35% CT tax) = $22,789.75 - $500 (flex cash) = $22,289.75 + Title, License, & Registration?

    Read thru these boards on pricing and when to buy. Those quotes you recieved are insulting to even think someone is stupid enough to go for a price like that 9 months into this year.

    Invoice price on a EXL V-6, no nav ==27,502
    Dest/ charge.....................................790
    Total invoice w dest.........................28,292

    It was so nice of that dealer to quote you 500 over invoice price then use the flex cash discount to help himself in pricing.

    I bought my Exl V-6 no Nav back in Feb, for 27,500 with dest charge included plus tax/ dmv charge.

    This same vehicle with or without Nav should be in the range of 1100 to 1500 below invoice price here in New york plus any rebates / incentives that apply to you.

    Flex cash is not taxed in new york

    Dealers in CT are allowed to add flex cash then tax it. Answering that last post.

    I am looking for 2013 accord LX at columbus OH. We can communicate each other on best deal around the areas. So far I got the deal at 900 below the invoice and I can pass the info to you. Hopefully you have better deals from your research so that I can share. Thanks!
  • Thanks Brian. Just got a quote from a dealer that said Katzkin leather would be $1500 and adding perforation/piping would be an add'l $185. Seems more reasonable than the first dealer at $2500.

    On another note, the same salesman seemed floored that I knew about flex cash. So thanks to you guys for that.

    We're still off on pricing at this point, but this is the latest from him from Austin, TX.

    Year Model MSRP Price
    2013 Accord Sport Auto. $24,980.00 $21,928.00
    2013 Accord V6 EX-L $30,860.00 $27,291.00

    Pricing included flex cash and the leather on the sport model would be an added cost.
  • Sorry to be stupid about this, (and I know someone else asked already) but when you say 1100 - 1500 below invoice price

    Do you mean $27,502 (base price) + $790 (destination fee) = $28,292 - 1100-1500

    or do you mean

    $27,502 - 1100-1500?

    You also mention asking them to deduct the Doc fees, I guess by listing it on the invoice, but then deducting it from the car price?

    You say you got an Exl V-6 no Nav back in Feb, for 27,500 with dest charge included plus tax/ dmv charge. 27,500 was your out the door price? or 27500 was your sale price and then you paid tax and dmv charge on top of that?

    Thanks again!
