    Whats the reasoning for most people here for not taking Acura TSX over Honda Accord? I find TSX to be a good car.
  • Can you guys help me to figure out best rate(In chicago) of Honda Accord EX with or without leather. thankyou

    For the 4cyl EX cloth Auto........I bought one for 20,182 but i suspect you can get it even cheaper.

    The 4cyl EX-L Auto a good price would be around 21000.......

    I'm thinking about buying a 06' or 07' Accord LX V6. Just wandering which dealership is easier to do business with. Anybody had any experience here? Thanks.

    No need to worry about owners of dealerships.

    Most are multi-millionaires. And most car salespeople, if they are any good at selling, are able to make a comfortable living.

    There are many ways of skinning a cat.

    Isn't invoice including transportation on a V-6 Auto EX leather --- $25,200 minus the 750 incentive equals 24,650 minus the holdback is around 23,900. What am I missing here? I suggest trish is getting a fair deal! She is getting the whole incentive and part of the holdback. BTW your sister in law's deal appears to right at 1200 under invoice after destination and doc fee are added to the deal.Right?
  • nynewcar,thanks for your suggestion and to other readers
    Please read my post #1126 Honda Extended Warranties: Pricing and Info,any help suggestions? :confuse: so I have more options.... :sick: :cry:

    I have a price quote of 21,000 for a 2006 accord LX V-6. It includes destination. Invoice is about 22,500. I sthis a good price or is it realistic to get a lower price.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I'm assuming that the car has leather. If so, that's a great deal. I come up with $21,057 after you take out the $749 dealer holdback and $750 incentive. Not bad!

    I got my new car from Peter's Honda of Nashua, NH:
    Black 2006 EX-L Automatic
    Car (+ wheel locks) - $22,206
    TTL - $197
    OTD Price $22,406

    I first went into Stratham Honda around the 2nd of July to get a test drive. They didn't have any EX-Ls, so I drove a EX. I then tried to make a deal there. They offered a EX-L Auto for 22,300. I offered 21,800 and was told that wasn't possible. I then called several dealerships around and asked for their lowest price. The lowest was still 22,300.

    I called Peter's and asked if they would match that price. I wanted to purchase from them since they are closest to me. They did match the price. I made an appointment to come in and finalize the deal. The salesman didn't show up. I left and was just a little upset. The next day I used CarsDirect and with my luck, they put me back in touch with Peter's. The lowest price was 22,266. I was put in contact with my original salesman and he said he could match that price of 22,206 (maybe he misheard me?). We did most of the deal over the phone. I got financed through a credit union for 5.34% 60 months. The dealer wanted $500 deposit, I told them that $200 was all I felt comfortable with.

    Overall the salesman did a great job (besides the schedule mishap) and I couldn't be happier with my new car. I will definitely do my dealing over the phone in the future. It saved me a lot of time in the dealership.

    These numbers are WITHOUT tax, correct?
  • louisnlouisn Posts: 110
    I don't Blane's deal has the transportation and the document fee added in which makes the real price almost 21,750 not 21,057 which is still a good deal.
    Correct me if I'm wrong. Blane.
  • nynewcarnynewcar Posts: 89
    blane, can you tell us which dealership you got this from? Thanks.
  • kevingeekevingee Posts: 10
    Sorry,

    Yes, they are without tax because in NH we don't have sales tax. :)
  • For the price 17K you mentioned, does it include destination and other fees? Thanks

    in my continuing search for a used ex-l i keep getting updated new car pricing. looks like pricing is a snitch better than before--got a quote of $21,350 delivered (msrp $25,500), before taxes. just wanted to give you all a sense. i think there's a decent amount of inventory still around even though the car is good value at these heavily discounted prices. i'm still seeing mostly overpriced used cars however..
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    Both are great cars. But, the Accord is roomier and doesn't require premium fuel.
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    Yes, in EX-L the L = leather.
  • kcrossleykcrossley Posts: 172
    According to Consumer Reports I should start dealing at these prices:

    With navigation: $29,241
    Without navigation: $27,504

    Knowing that the dealer has a $750 incentive, what is a reasonable offer for both models?
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    kcrossley,

    You asked "how much do you feel the dealer deserves?" I believe that the dealer deserves the minimum amount at which they believe they are comfortable selling their product. I would never consider going below that point. However, each dealer has their own comfort level.

    I'll spend my money at the dealer that meets both their and my comfort level.
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    bscc,

    You should be able to do much better. Read all of the valuable purchasing information available on the Edmunds website and on this forum.
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    nynewcar,

    It was Route 23 Honda, Pompton Plains, NJ. Work only with either of the two Internet Sales guys. Send them an email first.
  • blaneblane Posts: 2,017
    louisn,

    You are correct.
  • car_crazy1car_crazy1 Posts: 43
    Can you please advise the name of the credit union that offered 5.34% interest rate ?
  • nynewcarnynewcar Posts: 89
    Thanks, and thanks for the good tip about working by email first.

    Growwise: Certainly, if you can wait for the all-new 2008 Accord, there will surely be reasons to like it better than the current Accord.

    Personally, I like to buy a car after it's been for sale for at least a year to get the bugs out. Yes, Hondas are likely to be less buggy than most other brands, but the '09 is likely to be less annoying than the all-new '08.

    The current '06 Accord is getting old, but it's a GREAT car that's fully perfected by now, too.

    Yes, Redondo Red is nice with its gray interior, but the silver w/black leather was my choice for my '04 EX-L.

    Silver is common, but I don't have a place to wash my car and want something that won't show the dust/dirt. Silver looks fresh for a long time between washes. And the black interior is more appealing than light tan which is on most of the other colors. There was a red car available when I bought mine, but it's a dark red that shows dirt too much for me :P :)

    Does anyone know exactly when the '07s are coming out? I am drive a 1992 mazda 929 :sick: which i am hoping will make it to the dealership. See my message #12173. Do you think I will be able to still get the same price of $12,084 plus mandatory tax and tag $75 on the 2007?
    Thanks.
  • trishlynntrishlynn Posts: 6
    Sorry, typo, I meant $24,084. :blush:
  • trishlynntrishlynn Posts: 6
    Is the for the 4 cylinder or 6?
    I got my price through carsdirect.com also. Best way to go.
    Thanks
