2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • A dealer is quoting $27,900 for 2014 Accord Ex-l V6 no navigation. The price includes destination fee, but excludes tags and taxes.

    My question is
    1. Is it a good price for 2014 model?
    2. If I take Honda financing, can I ask for flex cash?
    3. What else can I negotiate? :)

  • If there ever was a come on for car shoppers - here comes . This sleazy outfit tricks unsuspecting buyers that it is showing all of the prices for vehicle purchases in the general area - they are not. RIPOFFCAR does no such thing. Instead they do not include prices the heavy discounters sell to the public with. This has the effect of making unsuspecting carbuyers believe they are getting a good deal - but they are not. I can't believe consumer reports and other "reputable" organizations use this outfit. Don't spend a dime with Consumer Reports or any other service who use TRUECAR. Every time these sleezeballs help get a car sold, they get $300 bucks for the "lead". So if you go on USAA or american express and get a price off of their websites, instead go direct to the internet manager or use Carwoo to get a better one. I hope the CEO of TRUECAR chokes on it. By the way, I am merely offering an opinion. I believe in free speech. Thanks to Edmunds for this message site. And enjoy your new Honda Accord - what a great car.
  • So what's the catch? Truecar is offering a 2014 EX-L V6 sedan in my area for $28,218. This is supposed to include destination, thus placing this car about $325 below invoice. If I pursue this deal, what can I expect to happen once I contact the dealer? You're obviously passionate about your position so please elaborate.

    Listen to what this poster is saying - you can almost always negotiate a better deal on your own if you know what you're doing and arm yourself with as much car buying knowledge as possible.

  • To start with - if you buy through TRUECAR, they get $300 bucks. Since you have a price with "no negotiation", why not email at least 10 car dealerships in the Area for the car you are looking for. Also, ask in this forum who in your area has recently purchased and for what price- show a city/state Area. People are great in this forum and share their experiences. If you are in the Wash DC metro Area, I can give you prices from the emails received from two dealerships. I bought through one of them 2 years ago and am planning on buying another at the end of either October or November. Criswell and Ourisman Honda are discount dealers in the DC area and I am sure this forum can provide you the discount dealers close to the Area you live in. If you must buy go through the internet manager and see if you can get at least $300 under the RIPOFFCAR price. Don't forget to also not fall for the "paperwork or document fees which some dealers mark up to $500 which does nothing but pad their pockets.
  • Valid points IF you have the inclination to haggle with a dozen or so dealers via phone and email. Frankly, I'd skip it all if the savings is only going to net me a couple hundred bucks. It just isn't worth the time and aggravation. But I can appreciate that there are many here who get a rush from the negotiation process. I know enough not to overpay for doc fees, detailing fees and other profit centers that these dealers concoct. But calling Truecar rip-off artists is a little extreme IMHO.
  • You are absolutely correct about the haggle - but if you don't want to haggle, then at least use CarWOO which is independent of Fake car Price or Truecar You can either accept the price offered or you can use the multiple offeres received through CARWOO and then use them to go back to each dealer who offered you a price for their best and final. Not so much haggling, but I would bet you'll get a far better deal for one days work. If you don't like the price, you don't have to buy. Best of luck with the purchase and I am sure you will enjoy your new Honda, they are great cars.

    Truecar................... is a good service for the Un educated buyer. Pricing is way off. It may be more accurate price wise in the sticks were there are 2 dealerships in a 300 mile area. Otherwise its useless The Only way to get a good price and determine your area's market value is to call/ email or visit dealerships at months end. If you dont like to haggle or feel a few hundred dollars is not worth you effort, then just reading thru these posts will give you a good idea on pricing. Hopefully there are people in your area posting on here.

    You could get a internet quote or a price from the salesman in the dealership for 20,500 on Sept 15th. If you go to buy at the end of the month more than likely that price is 500 to 1000 less than the initial offer. This i have proven year after year after year. We always take into consideration Supply and demand, time of the year, and area on pricing.

    Money factor: 0.00075
    Guaranteed value after lease: 55%

    Is this a fair deal? good deal? Any comments or suggestions?

  • Thanks gil. No I have not contacted Honda dealers yet. I was actually looking for a 2014 Mazda6 Touring. I received several offers with one $800 below invoice (destination included). Mazda6 has excellent reviews except for its infotainment which was described by all reviews as being worthless. This was a turn off for me. I am now looking for a 2014 EX-L.

    I will call Mercury Insurance to see how much Lowjack can save me but I may not get it anyway.
  • I was quoted $28, 400 doc fees included...that was the lowest of 6 quotes on a 2014 Accord Sedan EX-L 6V. According to my research, invoice is around 27,500. The dealership explained to me that they aren't as willing to negotiat.e on the 6V because Honda doesn't produce many (supply is down). I posted a few days ago about that but didn't get one reply. I am waiting until Monday, (last day of the month & quarter) and we will see where they are at. I think you have a decent could always ask them to thow in some accessories you want or a window tint, etc. good luck!
  • Oops didn't realize this is accord specific, found it through google search.

    MSRP is $24,555 for the 2013 Civic EX-L Automatic, Leather seats, and with Navigation.

    Dealer gave me $21,467 price.
    Residual is 55% = 0.55*21,467 = $11,807
  • thanks for the information. I will also wait for Monday :)

    I cannot say what a good price would be at the end of this month or next month. It all depends on the market price in your area when shopping the last two days of the month. Supply and demand would also be a factor.

    I do not want throw out any numbers, since that would be a guess. Where are you located? Have you gotten any other quotes on the 2014 model?
  • got a honda accord ex l 2014 i4 for $25100 + 350 doc fees, MA taxes and registrations came out to about 27000.

    What dealership sold you 2014 for 1550 below invoice ? I doubt your numbers are correct.
