    hps25, Can you tell which dealership in SoCal gave you that $2100 down the Invoice? How hard was it to get to that price?

    Brainage2,

    Prices from Hendrick Honda email you quoted seem almost too good to be true. Do you know if they include destination charge as well ($790). I''ll jump all over or try to leverage their Accord Sport A/T ($20,390). Can you either post or PM me POC at this dealership that sent this email so I can reference it if questioned. Thanks.

    Internet Price include Destination & Handling $25,499.00

    Honda Protection Package (wheel locks, splash guards and cargo tray) 
     $339.00

    State Sales Tax   $1,614.88

    Vehicle Inventory Tax  $54.34 (I've never paid that before)

    License Fee  $64.25

    Inspection & Title Fee $61.75

    Documentary Fee $125.00

    Drive-Out $27,758.22

    DEAL# 2

    Selling Price 25,124.00

    Destination $790.00

    Sales Tax $1,619.63

    Inventory Tax $48.59

    License, Title, Inspection $145.00

    Documentary Fee $125.00    

    Total Drive Out Price $27,852.21

    finis and naazim-
    In my talks with Stayci, an Internet sales manager at Spreen Honda (a So-Cal dealer), I was offered $24,919 for an EX-L. She did honor this price for another forum member. Give her call. (I have since decided to go with an EX, which I hope to pull the trigger on soon!)

    To all of the awesome forum experts,

    First, thanks for your sage advice, it is much appreciated by us "newbies"!

    Second, I am about to pull the trigger on the EX. I am thinking of using some of your techniques. (Like the letter: I will buy today for xxx).

    Questions: I was thinking of doing this on Friday (27th). Should I wait until the 30th? (I am getting my loan through Pen-Fed, so I will have to fax the purchase agreement and wait for the check to be overnighted....does this hinder my negotiating power, or is it positive that I am already pre-approved?!?)

    In the email, besides saying you want your price to include destination and exclude any incentives, do you also say no accessories, loans, add-ons, warrantees or shenanigans or I'm out if there and on to the next closest offer? Do you ask the dealer if they can't meant your price, what is there closest price to it?

    Thanks in advance!! Looking forward to finally getting my Honda!

    naazin,

    Definitely think you can go a bit lower. There is a gross receipt/inventory tax in some states, so that charge may be legit.

    Right now your best offer is at $25.5k + $125 doc fee + junk accessories. I would counteroffer at $24.7k to cover the car, destination, doc fee, and any accessories (mention that you don't really want them). Also state that you will finance through AHF and let them keep the $500 flex cash (dealers often don't mention the flex cash to consumers and use it to pad the deal). They will probably balk at your number, but hopefully will counteroffer you to $25k flat, which should be doable. Depending on circumstances you may need to settle for $25.2k, but that number should be easily obtainable.

    Do you have the email for Stayci? If so, you PM me the email? I saw your message and would like to get in touch with her about the 2014 Honda Accord EX sedan also.

    I'm looking to lease(most likely) a 2014 Accord EX in Phoenix,AZ. I'm currently negotiating and one dealer has offered me the price of $24522. I feel that this is a bit overpriced. Any suggestions?

    Start your emails on the 27th but at some point you need to talk directly to each dealers internet manager to close your deal..

    Your pen fed loan wont make a difference. you should be approved within 2 days. If you strike a deal friday leave a credit card deposit til Pen fed can fax or send the check. There is no leverage lost.

    In your emails to all dealerships you state:

    I am looking to buy a 2014 model, color, with no added accessories. I am would be willing to buy this vehicle from you today for xxx...This price includes dest/ charge and excludes taxes and any incentives or rebates that apply to me .I have recieved simular pricing but would like to buy closer to my house. I have heard good things about your dealership. Blah, Blah, Blah, get the picture.. Make it short and simply.Make each dealership commit to giving you there best price. Be firm on your target price til the end of the month. Let each emailing dealership know.. 1st dealer who meets my price gets my business.

    Dealerships that wont give you pricing by email or phone thank them and move on to the next dealership.

    I would take 10 mins to google then call about 15 dealerships and ask to see who is offering flex cash. while on the phone ask all dealerships for the name and number / email of there internet manager. then later email and call those dealerships first for the sale.

    Thank you brian125. While I did receive a good offer from a dealership that would still be honored, that offer was made awhile ago prior to their new dealer incentives, so I was going to see if I could get an even better price :)

    Does the $24,919 include the $500 for flex financing?

  • Okay,

    I just came home with a 2014 Accord LX CVT purchased from Economy Honda Superstore in Chatanooga, TN.

    Price breakdown was as follows:

    MSRP: $23,545 Invoice: $21,620

    Sale Price: $ 20,491.00

    Doc Fee: $ 599.50

    Sales Tax: $ 906.89

    Title Fee: $ 43.00

    Flex Cash $ -500.00 (incentive credit)


    Total Out the Door $ 21,540.39

    I basically bought the car for a sale price of $ 19,991 ($20,491 - $500 credit)

    Does this seem like a good deal to you folks who are in the know ???

    polly

    Good deal................ enjoy your new accord. Finding those dealerships offering flex makes a good deal even better..

  • veersveers Posts: 79

    Sounds reasonable polly. Just remember that the $599.50 "doc fee" is just another fake charge to pad dealer profits. So total price before flex is $21,091. Still seems like a good deal, but always need to account for all charges. That's why I always told dealers give me price + destination + doc fees - flex cash.

    No. It was without any incentives but included destination.

    Have been in touch with dealers in Atlanta for a 2014 EX-L and so far have the following prices from various dealers I contacted (note: Invoice is $26,650)

    $25,595.00, $25,499.00, $25,900.00, $25,450.00 (lowest), $26,448.00

    Will try for $24,919 and see what they say.

  • @neil_h - can you confirm if your 2014 EX-L quotes are for 4 cyl or V6? And is this with or without navigation?

    Has anyone had the experience of having a new car delivered to your home or office & signing the sale documents there?
