    Here are my 2 top Honda dogs in Md.... both dealers sell cars.

    Best bet internet manager Nov,30 or 31st.. Call with your target price for the sale that moment. If you guys agree on a price tell them to fax the buyers order to you with vehicle specfic's...... you both sign it and your done. leave a refundable credit card deposit unless he has actual car with Vin number on his lot.

    Pohanka
    Criswell

    Here are a few others in MD they are hit or miss. More on the miss side.

    Sport
    Jim Coleman
    Ourisman
    Anderson
    Price .............DE.......... in dover

    Philly/ PA................. dealers to contact

    Conicelli, Scott, and Mike Piazza

    I have done over 700 fax buys spanning over 40 yr for family friends and friends of friends ..This is the only way to buy vehicles today Especially guys like us looking for that big bang. Once you buy and do the deal by fax you will never look at your local dealerships the same way anymore. You Weed out the salesman and all the lies and BS that come with that territory. dealing only with the internet friendly dealers who sell cars . Dealerships that are stone age and not Internet savy in todays times will be extinct soon enough.

    Let both dealers in MD know if you cant meet xxx price and i dont get xxx price today. I will be buying next month. Keep the lines of communication open with my 2 top dogs.

    Danny - congrats on the new Accord - that is a sweet deal - about 1650 back of invoice and rivals, maybe beats blue and hogan's deals.

    Way to go using this forum's resources, being patient, and hanging tough declining the extras.

    Enjoy the new ride and have a happy thanksgiving!

  • Hello Kriptonic,

    May I asked which so cal dealer you went to for this deal?
    I'm interested in a 2014 ex-l CVT accord.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the info... I'll give these guys a shot. $27 flat would be a steal, I think I can take $27.2 now, anything higher and I'll wait to see if Honda throws in some more incentives and try to snag a deal early December. If anyone wants to make a deal in NY, your best bet right now might be to get in touch with Huntington Honda, and make an aggressive offer to their internet guys. Still going to be tough to get south of $1k under invoice (including $500 flex) in NY.

    Honda of Tyson's Corner has the 2014 Accord EX-L for $25,196 in their emails, before negotiations.

    "All sale prices exclude taxes, tags, processing fee and freight. The Insights, Civic LX, Accord LX and Crv LX 2WD require Honda Finance. There is no special finance rates on the 2014 Accord Hybrid. Active duty military and recent college grad discounts require Honda finance. 0.9% for 36 months unless otherwise specified. Insight does not qualify for special finance. Sale ends 11-30-13. Honda of Tysons Corner is not responsible for human or typographical errors."

    wild guess its I4 not V6. Tack on $790 freight to $25,200 price and you are up to $26,000. Then give em $300 or so for "processing" and you are now at $26,300 giving you a heck of a .... bad deal. I'm a big fan of the easy no haggle internet prices... but only when they are at the bottom of the market. No haggle is terrible when the thing is overpriced and they won't come down.
  • thank you guys for your help...i actually got quote from Hamilton honda and also from davis honda in burlington..davis had $500 less than hamilton on LX..and about $800 on EX..will see if they can come down..i saw lease add from hamilton honda for $149 / 27 month/10k miles..with $0 down and $1000 some fees etc...

    Friday and Sat are the 2 best days this month to buy at or get close to your target price.

    Sunday is Dec, 1st you may lose your pricing leverage.

    Good luck post your deals.

    Call Yonkers Honda.........Int/Mgr.........Rich, S

    He is telling me he is looking to sell cars this weekend. I dont know what numbers where talking about but Rich is a straight shooter, no... bs type of guy he will give you his bottom line.

    Yonkers is a well run dealership.

    Tell him Brian from Edmunds speaks very highly of him and thats why your calling today.

    See how close to your price he could get to close the deal today.

    There are a couple of forum members looking in NJ you are welcome to give Rich a call. Mention my name it may help you with a little better pricing this weekend.

    New Rochelle Honda is always on my short list here in New york on the last 2 days last day.

    All doc fee's in NY are.............. $75

    Give Autosport an e-mail, they are the lowest price in NJ from what I can tell. Just make sure to read the fine print and confirm the actual price.
  • Trying to turn in a 2012 LX lease early for a 2013 LX Sport.

    Honda has an offer for the $1999 down & $199/month lease.

    Can someone provide details on MF & RESIDUAL & current selling price please...in Tampa if that makes any difference.

    Current buying wind ? Buyers market?

    Thanks!

    As far as I know, Honda has no early lease turn in thingy going - what you will be doing is trading in your 2012 - and most likely you will be dealing with negative equity being rolled into the new lease - so be careful.

    Nationally advertised leases usually use a selling price that is higher than you could negotiate on your own - the dealer would love you to take that advertised lease with no more negotiation - they will make more profit than they usually do.

    Read through these forums to arm yourself with info and get up to speed.

    You should have checked back to say "this includes the dest fee"

    But that is sort of the same trickery the crummy dealer pulled on me and made me walk. These guys are insane and liars. Waiting for ISELL to say that it is "our fault" for trying to dig to the lowest price :)
  • I am new to this board and inexperienced when it comes to car shopping. I didn't do my homework, went in to test drive the Accord EX-L (4 cylinder), I enjoyed it, it has all the features I am looking for (rearview camera, bluetooth, etc.), I signed the papers, and came home with the car. I checked the price on truecar.com and other lease offers on the internet, and I feel like [non-permissible content removed]. I want to learn where I made my mistakes and what I can do to improve in the future.

    Here are my lease terms:

    $3500 down + $339/mo for 36 months for 15,000 miles/year. Includes sentinel package: unlimited oil changes, tire repair/replacement, $150/tire and $35/repair, roadside and trip interruption.

    After signing the papers, I find the agreed upon value of vehicle: $28,120
    Residual value: $14,680 (not including tax)

    I intend to buy this car at the end of my 3 year term, so the total cost would be:
    $3500 + $339/mo*36mo + $14,680*1.07tax = $31,411

    1. is my math correct in terms of estimating the total cost to own this car after 3 years? If so, by how much did I overpay??

    2. truecar.com states the average price is trending below $1,850 below MSRP. MSRP is $28,785. Should I have originally negotiated the price down to $26,935 and then come up with lease terms?

    3. truecar.com also states the estimated lease payment of $324/mo for 36 month lease and $0 due at signing. Excludes tax. What is this number based off?? What is the agreed upon value/ residual price when people get lease deals like this?

    4. After 3 years, I will have spent $15,704.. which is 55% of the MSRP. What would be the wise thing to do at the end of my lease, given I am under 45,000 miles? Buy out with residual value or return it?

    5. When there are 6 months left in the lease, is it possible for me to go to another dealership, buy/lease a new car and have them pay for the remainder of 6 months? I guess what I am asking is what is the best possible way for me to recoup some of the $ I wasted in this deal..

    Your feedback is much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Al

    " Waiting for ISELL to say that it is "our fault" for trying to dig to the lowest price"

    Yep, it certainly is! In that person's zeal to not pay one more nickel more than someone else did, they failed if destination charges were included.

    The store I worked at was always careful to make sure the shoppers knew about destination charges and we would warn them that there were stores in the area that wouldn't say anything.

    " Of course, you realize the price I quoted you didn't include freight?"

    Sadly at that point, that sneaky tactic often worked. By this time the "Smart Shoppers" were worn out and exhausted from the process and they would simply cave in and pay.

    Even worse was the fact that quite often the "good store" that spent hours with the customer answering questions, driving cars etc would lose the sale to the store that lied to the shopper.

    I sure don't miss this business.

    TO MANY DEALERSHIPS LIE, DECEIVE PEOPLE,

    This is a common practice in your business. Dont take it personal its a big game. When you do not do your homework on pricing and dealerships you get what you deserve. Lied to and most of the time dealers take advantange of you,, If you dont want to play by the rules dont complain. This goes for the salesman and the consumer. The car companies setup the rules and guidelines. Use them to your advantage.

    Here are the common lies from dealers

    Come down will give you a great deal/ will match or beat that price.
    Will remove doc fee charges
    yes dest/ charge was included in this price
    yes we have the vehicle in stock

    Then when you go to dealership
    cant match discussed price
    No vehicle on lot or has a ton of add on's.

    Thats why a honest dealership that you worked for gets the short end of the stick.. Your Industry sucks..

    You guys deserve to be sucked for every penny from guys like me for dealerships bad practices. Its always nice to give back what alot of dealerships dish out

    Post your message in the Accord leasing forum they will help you. What i can tell you is the basic's on leasing.

    Always Negotiate the lowest sale price of vehicle then have dealer apply the right leasing numbers to the deal.

    1- Cap Cost
    2- Money Factor
    3- Residual value.... ETC

    Most folks are buying the 2014 Accord at a little below dealers invoice price to 500 below. You could gauge your deal by your models invoice price.

    Your big Mistake was putting a $3500 upfront payment on your lease. If your Vehicle is totaled in a accident or stolen you will lose your down payment.

    You want to make 36 equal payments and roll everything into that lease including the taxes.

    Whats done is done. You have a great vehicle go and enjoy it and dont look back. I would suggest reading thru this board on buying tips and tricks to getting the lowest price in your area.. It will help in future buys..

  • Hey..

    Got almost the same deal here in CT. My OTD was 27200 for 2014 EX-L sedan I4 CVT. Looks like the east and west coast are pretty evenly matched at this stage!

    I had done a ton of research and a couple of my friends benefitted from it since they wanted to buy Accords to and ended up getting the same deal. I got a nice kickback from the dealer. If anyone in and around CT interested, PM me and I can share the details!
