    Anything is possible, but they will probably have plenty until very close to the time the 2008s are released. They do not want to be stuck with no cars to sell and lower their total sales numbers.
    It's possible that certain models and colors will get hard to find if you are choosy.

    FYI, THERE WAS A POST BACK IN JANUARY WHERE SOMEONE PAID $26,000 OTD, FOR EXACT SAME CAR, I DON'T REMEMBER THE DEALER BUT IT WAS IN CALIFORNIA. :shades:

    I was offered $20,000 for an EX in Galexy Grey.

    What the heck is "Galexy (Galaxy?) Grey"?? :confuse:

    And for the person who was asking about Carbon Bronze... it seems fairly popular around here but you don't see many of them because it is only available on the EX. Interesting color because it looks so different in the clouds and in the sun. Sadly, they no longer offer a black interior with it.... just the ivory.

    Thanks! Being in south Texas, I would prefer the ivory over the black anyway!

    You're welcome. It really is a great color... it was my first choice when I was looking exactly one year ago. The 06s came with a black interior which was perfect for me. But alas, I was looking for an I4 EX-L with Navi that had a manual transmission and they don't make many of those. However, I am quite happy with silver, my all-time favorite color for cars... and the perfect color for rainy weather. ;)

    yatingg -- I am also in OC (Irvine), and looking for the exact same car but in white. I had been also considering a Maxima --- but if can get an Accord V6 w/Nav for $25K, I'll forget all about Nissan. Can you tell me which dealer gave you that quote?? Cheers!

    Hi,

    Just wondering about what the prices are going in the Dallas area. I have emailed 2 dealers thru the edmunds link and got a price of $18,814 for the Accord LX. This includes the Destination charge.
    Documentation, Title, License will be $225 additional.
    Tax is also additional 6.25%.

    This is the first quote I am getting from them. Sent them another email asking if this price includes the honda incentives and i was told that it has already been reduced by $750 from the invoice price.

    I was also looking at the SE model. If it had a sunroof, I would have gone with it.. but the only difference I see between LX and SE is the alloy wheels and 6cd changer is additional in SE. Are their anymore differences that would make it worth looking at the SE?

    Thanks!

    Test drove the Carbon Bronze EX manual and it was a sweet ride! The price with the options I want is extremely competitive. My wife and I will take a couple of days to think it over. Price is @21K OTD with spoiler, tint, and fog lamps. If we do purchase, I will give a more detailed report.

    Addition in SE: radio steering wheel controls, radio theft deterrent, 4 wheel disc brake, simulated carbon fibre dashboard.

    I also test drove the EX Carbon Bronze tonight(no white available). This was the EX auto. Gave me a price of $20985.00 OTD and told me the offer was good thru end of month. Got home, checked my email and was offered $19999.00 thru end of month at another dealer in Wisconsin so the prices are totally dropping. I just wish someone would have the car in white!
  • abhinaikabhinaik Posts: 29
    19999 is this OTD. What is the breakup... that is excellent price...
  • will26will26 Posts: 62
    Tax, Title, and $89 Service Fee are not included in this quote. Does include destination. These are just the internet offers I keep getting that keep dropping every week. It started at $20800.00 two weeks ago and keeps going south from there.
  • bamaflumbamaflum Posts: 39
    That is better than the price I was quoted for a manual including the options! WOW!

    EDIT: Oh, usually OTD price includes ttl and fees.
  • abhinaikabhinaik Posts: 29
    I just bought SE with wheel locks, mud flaps, pinstripe, security, 1st oil chg free & lifetime inspection free:
    for 20200 OTD includes everything, destination, tax tag TTL, doc fees,

    thinking now that I shouldhave waited a little more.
  • will26will26 Posts: 62
    These prices are pretty good but I keep thinking there's going to be some catch when I get to the dealer. This will be my first brand spakin' new car (sweet!) so I feel a little overwhelmed by all the offers and what they include.
  • abhinaikabhinaik Posts: 29
    I talked to several dealers, but only few of them are ivin deals. What I came to know was there is a taret set by manufacturer, different dealers for different months, The qty sold in that month will directly impact qty for 08 cars.

    looks like deals will be on every month :)
  • tallman1tallman1 Posts: 1,874
    Hang in there. Sometimes it is hard to compare things here because there are so many factors. Posters who break things down make it easier to decipher but if there is a trade, it gets more complicated. The dealer may give someone a great deal on the new car but give them a horrible trade-in value.

    Also, someone may post a great price here but don't bother telling you the huge doc fees the dealer charges. Geesh, we've got folks here who can't even agree what OTD is. :confuse:

    Read what you can and be prepared for anything. Get all the fees up front. You can't do anything about destination, tax, license, etc. but doc fees, dealer add-ons and all that other stuff are negotiable. Of course, the dealer has every right not to negotiate them. :)

    Wil26,

    The only true way to know if your getting a good deal is to post the exact breakdown of the price. OTD pricing can be very misleading as these variables can be different depending on what state you live in etc. If you really want a true assement of "how a good of deal is it" you need to post selling price + dest fee (assumer 595.00 if they say included) + doc fee (sometimes they call this something else like dealer fee) and ask them if their any other fee's if not you should then include simply for disclosure the TTL and sales tax. The last 2 variables again can be different depending on where u live and are really
    irrelevant when trying to determine if you got a a good deal.

    An example would be a post by Saleem when he bought the following

    2007 Accord SE AT I4 bought in Jan 07

    18200 - car
    595 destination
    180 doc fee
    1315 7% tax
    7.50 tire tax

    Looking to purchase 2007 Accord VP A/T in suburban Chicago. The lowest dealer's quote I got was $16495. Can anyone share their own experience ?
    Thanks ! :) :) :) :) :)
  • steve311steve311 Posts: 1
    I got several quotes, the best I came by was $24,400 (no tax and w/o $400 in dealer handling). Is that good for an auto ex-l, v6? Should I try for less? I'm in NJ if that changes anything. Any info you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you! :)
    Invoice on Edmunds says $24,820, so it seems like an ok deal.
  • ncsu1ncsu1 Posts: 6
    I got $23900 (the best) in NC. This price includes destination.
    I visited 5 dealers, and average was about 24200.
    Good luck!

  • solid1solid1 Posts: 11
    Got a quote from dealer in NY today to match 2007 ex-l i4 for $22,250 including 595 dest. I wanted fog lights and rear wing spoiler added and the price was $23,420 including dest. Does this sound right? What's a good price to add on these accessories.
    Thanks

    I have seen prices in my area as low as $17,998.00 for the LX automatic and $18,589.00 for the SE on select models, the longer the vehicle sits in inventory the better the deal.
  • Just wondering if anyone has recently purchased an LX V6,or an SE V6 in these areas. I am not getting quotes as good as some on this forum and wondered what luck everyone else has had. Thanks

    Try emailing 20-30 dealers in the cinci area from the Honda Website. Give your cell and your car, options, 1st and 2nd choice of colors price range, and tell them you are getting 20 bids and will buy before the end of the month. Towards end of the month is the only time to buy a car (if you can help it) Most people dont solicit enough bids.

    Only 1 out of 8-12 dealers will be significantly behind on their sales targets for the month and you need this many bid solicitations (1/2 will answer) to generate 2-5 really eager beavers. See what you can drum up. Work the top two or the most pesky. Its better than them working you.

    Can't speak for everyone, but our 2006 is that color. Don't know why they call it that, it really looks grey.

    We like it.

    Has this ever happend to anyone before?
    Got a quote the other day for a i4 ex-l. They wrote it up and I left a deposit. We went back to the dealer today (they were closed) to see our possible new car. We checked the VIN# and it was wrong. So we thought they were trying to sell an older one on the lot. As it turns out the VIN on our receipt was to a v6 ex-l, same color.
    Has this ever happend to any of you? Do you think they will honor the price? If we didn't see this, the dealers computer would have, right? Just curious.
    Thanks
  • If the VIN# does not match up with model name, you probably don't have too much chance to force them to honor the price.
    There is around a $2000 difference...
    Try to make them pay a penalty on deposit you paid if they don't honor it.

    REF: 14367
    Sounds like an honest mistake. Don't try to force them into anything or else you'll seem like the typical [non-permissible content removed] car dealer we despise on this forum. Renegotiate in good faith and make them give you a good deal (or walk away).
