    Which dealership gave the price below invoice (over 1000 off). I am in the market and getting the runaround using online dealers quotes. I am using them to outbid each other and the best I can get right now is 800 below invoice on a 2005 Accord EX V6 w/o navi. Out the door, in los angeles the current best is 26118.12 at gardena honda. Price includes wheel locks and mudguards and all taxes and fees. Is this a "no brainer" like the internet manager is saying, or is there a better deal. Thanks for assistance.

    We paid $17400 OTD for our 1997 LX Accord 5-sp, so I think $18000 for a new one sounds pretty good.
  • I just purchased my EX-L in Woodbridge, Virginia at Hendrick Honda for a similar price OTD $22787 and it was the best buying experience EVER. It was fast, over the internet, no pressure (they tried to sell me options, I can't blame them for tyring) but I declined and they backed off. THEY ALSO DROVE THE CAR TO MY HOME for me. What a convenience!! From start to finish it took 1.5 hours including all the tags etc. I might have ended up at the same price after going from dealer to dealer and spending hours haggling but I HATE IT. This was painless and I don't feel like an idiot afterward.

    We bought our 95 Accord there, but bought our last 3 Hondas from Rosenthal. I like Hendrick because they have a nice path for a test drive. We will go there as a first choice when we buy a new car in a few weeks.

    Hi Folks

    Can someone tell me where you could expect the best deal for a 4 Door Auto 2005 Accord LX in New Jersey? I am not able to get lower than $19600 OTD. I have been seeing much better deals on this forum. Any help / reference is appreciated.

    Sincere thanks.

    I would not take the prices quoted in this DG that seriously. If your OTD price is invoice +200 + transportation + sales tax + tag/title, then it is probably OK. You can offer less to all of your local dealers, but if none of them accept, don't feel bad.


    Hey, we went to Cape May last Fall and we loved it. Can't wait to go back in the Spring. We like New Jersey.
  • Hi,

    I recently found this forum and been reading up on it. I think it is a great idea to see what others are paying before you purchase. :)


    Here in midwest(IL, NW Chicago), I am getting quoted $22200(inc. dest) +TTL for 4cyl EXL-NAV. Is this a good price? I am getting similiar price quotes by other Honda dealers around my area, but I wanted to see how you guys feel about the price. Is there a little bit of room to work with?


  • $22,200 for a Accord, EX, w/ leather and NAV? Is that manual shift?


    still, by my book that over $1,400 under invoice ... seems like a deep discount, but if you can get it ... don't walk ... RUN ;)


    I would expect a fair price to be more in the order of $23,000. w/ the auto being even more. If I could get $1,500 off invoice, I would be buying my EX-L V6 today ... but instead I hesitate ;)
  • fredvhfredvh Posts: 854
    I agree with you. This price does not seem realistic. How could a dealer sell a car for $1400 UNDER invoice? If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Maybe there is an asterisk on this deal. Is there a manufacturer-to-dealer rebate that we are not aware of?
  • He did say it is a 4cyl.
  • It is for an automatic 4 cyl.

    I actually took my dealers offer and taking delivery tomorrow. If all goes well, I will post updates. There might be a dealer incentive that I am not aware of but all the quotes I have gotten were close to $22200. :)

    My OTD price came to $23971.27. He will have all paper work ready for me, so wish me luck folks! :)

    You are sure it has Navigation? If so, that is a killer deal....

  • You are sure it has Navigation? If so, that is a killer deal....


    Yup. :) I test drove one yesterday(Voice recognition was very impressive). I wanted one in silver so it is being brought over from an another dealer. Although I thought the deal was outstanding, but at the same time I thought the deal was about the same everywhere because one other dealer's quote was about $200~$300 off. Couple quotes I've received were $23500+ though.

    Now I can't wait til tomorrow to get this thing finalized.

    That is great...


    It kills me... I leased Accords in '97, '99 and '01.. All 4-cylinder EX.. with cloth interior.. Nice cars... Great lease deals... But, every one of them had a selling price of over $20K.. To see people buying the '05 model for less... It is just amazing..

    You may want to get started on a new post now because that one will most likely be deleted. This time, first read the instructions at the bottom of the page as to what you can and can't post. 2nd, please stop using all CAPS! It looks like you are shouting and it makes your post very hard to read. Congrats on your purchase, by the way. I'm glad you are happy with your deal.

    Hi Rx300ss:


          It appears as if Honda has upped the ante back to pre-Christmas type internalized incentives whatever they may be. Even better in fact given it took a $1,300 FTD incentive to move the 04 EX-L w/ NAVI for < $22,500. Great deal and in fact, that was the best in the country to date on an 05 EX-L w/ NAVI and Auto. Might I ask which dealership you are picking it up at here in Chicago? That was a steal and one that many here had better consider attempting to match with their own local dealerships. There are some that were proud to pick up a straight EX-L for your price in the last month although $23,500 seemed to be about the right price for one of your exact trim. $22,200 is $2,159 under invoice for the NAVI equipped EX-L. Wow. Anyone want to try and break the $22K barrier ;-)


          Good Luck and again, excellent price.

  • Just picked up a LX Graphite Pearl Sedan with Automatic from Sierra Honda. Paid $17875 (including dest. charge), +$45 doc. fee, + $1478.4 tax + $177 license fee -- OTD $19584.15, with no trade-in. Got the 2.9% 60 months, zero down financing through American Honda too. This is $1000 below invoice I think?


    I did the whole deal through emails. I offered $17875 and they ok immediately with no haggling. The whole buying process was very straightforward. The guy was very professional. This is the best and easiest car buying experience I have.

    Hi All:


          Given what RX300ss has recently picked up his 05 Accord EX-L w/ NAVI for, these prices seem high to me other then the AH but here they are anyway …


    Grand Honda


    05 Accord EX I4 w/ Auto: $20,344

    05 Accord EX V6 w/ Auto: $23,588

    05 Accord Hybrid (non-NAVI): $28,000


          Good Luck

    This msg sounds fishy to me. Are you a salesman from the dealership. Come on this is for honest customers sharing their experiences. Dont promote your dealership.
  • tds1tds1 Posts: 74
    That seems like a fantastic price on an Accord Hybrid, doesn't it? I thought they were going at sticker. Also, that 05 EX Auto is $2218 under invoice if that price includes destination. That is remarkable! If you add the Navi option, that is pretty close to RX300's price. Must be some incentive on the 4 cyl - doesn't appear to apply to V6 though. :(
  • I'm shopping for a 2005 EX V6 Automatic Sedan with Navigation system in the Atlanta, Georgia area. MSRP is $29,215 and Invoice is $26,336. Considering the 3% dealer holdback on the base MSRP is $861, is it reasonable to think I can make a deal at $500 (or better) under invoice? Thanks for your help!!
  • xcelxcel Posts: 1,025
    Hi Tds1:


          Yes, the AH price is the best I have seen anywhere. I have read of $1K under MSRP for one but not $2K!


          In regards to the EX w/ Auto, it wasn&#146;t the EX-L so its pricing doesn&#146;t exactly compare with what RX300ss picked his up his EX-L w/ NAVI for. That EX w/ Auto was listed at just $780 under Invoice vs. RX300ss&#146; $2,159 under invoice. His was an absolute steal and the best price I have ever heard of anywhere in the country according to this forums Prices Paid! I believe there were some 04 LX and EX&#146;s w/ sticks that were E-Bayed from a Honda dealer out of NY a few months ago that went for a similar discount but they were sticks and they were 04&#146;s being blown out to move off the lot. Great prices as well but not in the same league given they were year older models and manuals to boot. The meat cleavers (manuals) as the Trade in Guys like to call them are a bit rough on the resale side of the equation if you know what I mean ;-)


          Good Luck

    Don't forget about the $500 manufacturer to dealer incentive. So, yes, that price should be doable.

  • gbrozen, based on some Internet research I've done, the $500 manufacturer to dealer incentive only applies to the coupes. Perhaps I misunderstood. Does the dealer also get $500 for the 4 door sedan? Thanks for your response!
  • fredvhfredvh Posts: 854
    It was my understanding too that the $500 was only for the 2-doors but maybe that has changed, but I have not seen it.
