  • I don't know about the prices, though there may be some posts in past pages, but as for the manual shifter on the Accord, it's like butter. It's so smooth and very tight. I personally love it. My only gripe is that the clutch is a bit long but not nearly as long as my '85 Escort I drove in college with an oil IV. So yeah it's a sweet stick!

    Here is the deal I have worked out.

    2005 Silver EX-L with XM Manual Tran & added protection package sedan
    OTD is 23000 so it brings actual sale price to about 211XX. I live in Southern Cal and tax here is about 7.75%

    What do you guys think? Should I play with this more or walk away?

    Thanks

    Can anyone recommend a good Honda Dealership around the Miami area?
    Looking for a no-nonsense straight up type of dealer (if there is such a thing).
    Willing to travel outside the area for a great deal/service.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try Largo Honda in Key Largo.When we lived in south dade they were a no nonsense dealer,As for service,Golden Wrench across from the Tamiami Airport used to be tops.Hope this helps.
  • Okay, anyone else think this quote is a bit on the high side?

    Looking at an '06 Accord coupe EX 4-cyl/auto in graphite. Dealer is quoting $500 over invoice (which is about $21,500) plus destination, 5% MD tax, tags. I'm getting body side molding, mud guards, pin stripe and wheel locks added. Price out-the-door is just over $23,900 (which is the actual MSRP on the sticker).

    I was hoping to get the car for a little closer to invoice. Maybe just $100-200 over. And I haven't even contemplated an extended warranty yet. I really can't see spending nearly $25,000 total for this car.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the info!
    I will check them out!
  • I can't say enough about this forum. The information that I leaned help us in so many ways. We ended up getting a good deal, with a competitive loan rate, and a very competitve extended warranty. I strongly urge that you take the time to go to the extended warranty forum for hondas. What I learned from that alone saved us at least a thousand dollars! We did opt for the extended package because of all the electronic equipment on the car. So thanks again and happy car shopping1

    What dealership in So Cal? I have a quote for an 05 ex v6 for 22973 (to be exact). It's an automatic. Sounds pretty decent to me, what does everybody else think?
  • mrwumrwu Posts: 3
    The dealership was family honda in rancho santa margarita. Is the 22973 OTD? Sounds like you got a better deal.
  • robc3robc3 Posts: 3
    Not OTD, I still have to add ttl. I think it will be around 25000 if I do it. So basically 2gs more for the v6. Thanks for the dealership info.
  • I have received several (5) internet qoutes today from various dealerships in my state. The lowest quote I received was $25718.00 with a total OTD of $26771.00. What do you think? The price looks higher to me than what others on the board have been receiving in quotes. I recently totaled my car so I will be purchasing soon. I would really appreciate any input you have. Thanks!
  • mldj98mldj98 Posts: 378
    Price at Palm Harbor Honda (Florida).....$24,867.00 + fees+ TTL.....
    That's for an 06 Accord EX-V6 Sedan Auto/non-navi.....
  • Bought a 2006 EX V6 (automatic) from Bayridge Honda Brooklyn, NY last week. 24, 568 + 550 (destination) + tax + 275 DMV fee + 45 doc fee.
    Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the reply...I am looking to trade in a 2003 civic lx..I should have bought the Accord to begin with! The Civic is a great car and has been trouble free..got it end of June 2003 and have 61000 miles on it now..anyway..will let you know at a later date what I paid. Good luck with your purchase..and let me know how you finally make out
  • I have a price (before fees and taxes) of $20,300 for a new 2005 honda EX. This is new, but a model year old vehicle. The MSRP is $23500 on this car. What is about the best I should be able to do pricewise on this car?
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    smcclenahan,

    Since $23,500 is not a listed MSRP for any version of a 2005 Accord EX, it's impossible to answer your question without you providing more information.

    Are you buying an EX sedan or coupe?
    Are you buying an EX with four or six cylinder engine?
    Are you buying an EX with a manual or automatic transmission?
    Are you buying an EX with a cloth or leather interior?

    A friend of mine owns a Honda Accord with low miles and in relatively good shape.
    She is not sure what to expect when she goes to the dealership to return the car.
    Is there anyone here with some personal knowledge of turning in a lease car that might be able to give some tips? She is concerned that the dealership will try to charge her bogus fees etc...
    Your input is greatly apprectiated. Thank you.

  • got some valuable info from this board and just wanted to share that i paid $17,900 incl destination for a 2005 Honda Accord LX SE Coupe AT. also had an offer of $17,699 from another dealer. initial quotes ranged from $18,999 to $18,049. this is in the philadelphia area.
  • robc3robc3 Posts: 3
    I paid 17,796 (including destination) at Airport Marina Honda in Los Angeles. Total, out the door, was 19500. CA tax was 8.25% plus title and DMV fees. Seemed to be a good price, and they had the color I wanted. A lot of dealers in this area only had the beige color left, which I didn't want. Price was also the lowest I received via online quotes.
  • Seems pretty high. I have received quotes $1000 below this. In fact the highest quote I have revieved for an EX-L, auto, has been $23400
  • I am thinking of buying a Accord LX AT Sedan 05 to save some money as compared to the 06? are there any significant disadvantages to this? (I am OK with somewhat different backlight style and other cosmetic differences)

    Also now that the 05s are not the latest accord models - would a price of $17, 900 justify buying an older model? My friend bought the same config for $17, 300 a month back but I can't get that price any longer.

    All the price are pre-tax and pre-fees

    Thanks
    First time young buyer
  • Just recently I read an article about whether buying leftover '05 models were financially a better decision than getting an '06. It laid out several scenarios and in most situations, buying the leftover model wasn't a significantly better deal.

    Here's how I look at it- the '06 Accord is significantly different looking than the '05. Technically, though they're both brand new, the '05 is really a year old. If you tried to sell or trade in two years from now, the '05 would be three years old and the '06 two years old. The '06 would be worth significantly more money both because it's a year newer and it's a "refreshed" look.

    You should be able to get an '06 LX AT for $19,000 or a little less. That's about $1000 more than the '05 you mentioned.

    If you're going to keep the car four years or more, I'd say go with whichever car you like better. The difference in payment will only be about $25 a month. If you don't think you'll keep it that long, go with the '06. Another plus for the '06 is that you'll be able to get it in any color they offer as opposed to just what they have left (if that matters to you).

    Good luck shopping!
  • Thanks for the quick reply.
    Could you elaborate - '06 Accord is significantly different looking than the '05? I just recently started researching cars and the only difference I noticed was the redesigned rear lights in the 06.

    Also if you have a link to the comparison article - please post it.

    Thanks
