    The differences are also spelled out here.

    They say:

    Drive the I4 Accord, if the power seems enough then buy it. If it does not seem adequate, then drive the V-6. Don't drive the V-6 unless you feel the I4 is underpowered for you - or you will spend more money and be buying more gas.

    Ok after months of looking debating new or used etc Closed the deal tonight.

    SE V6
    Purchase price 19,650
    service fee/doc fee 95.00
    temp plates 4.00 (bought the car in different state from where it will be titled hence this fee)
    Before Tax Title and Lincense 19,749 included splash guards and wheel locks.

    Overall pretty happy, at the last minute had an offer from a another dealer who said he would do it fot 19,550 but never clairfied the doc/service fee. I needed to pull the trigger. Bottom line this car can be bought under 20,000 dont let dealers say otherwise. 3 of them did.

    Lastly, I want to publicly thank member Dwynne he is one of the most frequent posters and his knoweledge and willingness to help is unmatched. Thank you for all your help Dennis!!! Sending emails to the internet coordinators is the way to go, drill down from their and then pick your top 2 or 3 and starting leveraging the offers against one another. Belive this car could proably be bought for 19,500 SE V6 including dest and doc fee.

    If you want dealer info email me.

    Edmunds shows that the invoice price of Accord LX V-6 4dr Sedan is $23,427.00. However, the invoice of of Accord SE V-6 4dr Sedan is $21,755.00. How come SE is cheaper than LX? Is the data wrong?
  • blufz1blufz1 Posts: 2,045
    That is a great buy. What were the incentives on this car for your area code as shown by Edmunds here on this site? Thanks.
  • If Dennis were replying, he would direct you to the official Honda website:

    LX V-6
    Adds to or replaces SE V-6 features:
    • Power moonroof with tilt feature
    • Heated power side mirrors
    • Driver's seat with 8-way power adjustment
    • Ambient console lighting


    Unlike the i4 trim level, the LX-v6 has more features than the SE-v6, thus explaining the higher price.

    Congrats on the new car and you are welcome :D

    Invoice is $21,754 and you paid $19,650? Yowsa, that is $2,104 under invoice. If $1,200 of that was incentive and $478.90 was hold back, that means $425.10 is MIA. So I have to assume they either made a mistake or they are getting the $1,200 plus the $750 on this car.

    I hope you paid them and drove away real fast before they change their minds :confuse:

  • blufz1blufz1 Posts: 2,045
    Right! That was the point of my previous question as the incentive in my area is only $750 on this vehicle per this site.

    I juat paid 20,900 for an Accord EX-L 4 cylinder in blac/black leather. This includes 1000, for my trade, a 95 corolla with 130,000 miles. Trade in could have been a little higher. But all in all im satisfied. Can someone tell me if this was a good deal or not to ease my mind. doc fee was 295, and other than that no other fees. this was in Massachusetts.
  • max4goodmax4good Posts: 12
    Thanks for the verification. I did check out the Honda website, but KBB had conflicting info so I just wanted to make sure.
  • briz2briz2 Posts: 42
    Msrp 29995

    Dealer quote is 26000 plus 50 doc fee. My state tax is 5% (1302.50) and title/tag transfer is another 50ish. So that would put me @ 27402.50.

    Draw back being that I dont want the color they have and to get it they want another 300 for the transfer.

    Also I got a quote from another dealer that was 24800 on the same car only they had a 399 processing fee and a 399 destination charge. I have to drive about 3 hours to get that one.

    Are these prices coming in @ average for folks? Im in the southeast.
  • So without trade-in it would have been $21,900?
  • khong74khong74 Posts: 6
    Can you share with me where you got that quote? khong74 dot gmail thanks.
    I think you've got much better deal on SE.

    So without trade-in it would have been $21,900?

    That was an odd way to say it.... "including" the trade. I wondered what that meant too. Also that person paid a $295 doc fee so you would need to add that in too.
  • he8833he8833 Posts: 52
    As for the 1200 plus 750, I dont know? I was told by another dealer 1200. I dont think they made a mistake I like to think it was part of "grinding out a deal" :P Whats crazy is per a last second offer in MKE they suggested they could beat this deal. The zip down here is 53120 if you want to check I'm on dialup here @ the moment so I cant check. I know someone will beat this price and they should but now I'm anxious to see what someone else gets.
  • None of my quotes have reflected the dealer incenties being added. There may be other factors involved. Someone mentioned this being a special time to buy because it's the end of the month, end of the quarter, and end of this model run. Or, using post # 14979 as a guide, perhaps we are mistaken on the holdback or there was a sales contest of some sort.

    This was an excellent buy!

    I am looking to lease a LX v4 in OHIO, can any one please help me what price I should expect to pay. I have already asked for quotes through If you can provide any details on the lease I would appericiate that.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thanks to the helpful information on this board, I purchased a silver EX I4 last night for 19,790 plus 5% sales tax ($989) plus title, license, and registration ($94) plus dealer doc fee ($259) plus wheel locks ($77) for a total of 21,209. Dealer's original offer was 21,999 but I of course refused it. They ended up matching another dealer's e-quote of 19,970. They claimed to lose $500 off the sale.

    They claimed to lose $500 off the sale.

    Would you make the sale if you were losing money? Me thinks they were talking out of their tushie ;)
  • olemedolemed Posts: 27
    I wholeheartedly agree!
  • max4goodmax4good Posts: 12
    Was this from an Orange County dealer? If so can you give me the dealer's info? I'm getting quotes alot higher than what you've been quoted for ($20,900 before tax for EX). My email is I'd very much appreciate it!
  • mfinchmfinch Posts: 5
    Thank you...kind of my feeling too. I am heading down south (60 miles) to Olympia where the sales tax is lower and hopefully not the same problem this weekend

    You might want to try South Tacoma Honda on your way down. Last time I had any contact with them, they didn't do the ADM game. Honda of Fife does but you can get around that easily enough... hard core negotiating needed with them though. Good luck!
  • max4goodmax4good Posts: 12
    could u tell me which dealer you got your quote from? I'd appreciate it very much!
  • stkntrafficstkntraffic Posts: 172
    I think that's called the "sucker sticker". Various dealers try this, although some disguise it as a package that they put on "all" their cars... "fabric guard", luster sealant, etc. Basically $5 worth of material and an extra $500 on the price.

    I've had pretty good experience by just ignoring it altogether. Most salesman I've dealt with didn't bring it up, once they know they're dealing with an informed consumer.

    Some still will try to stick you with it, and so you take your business elsewhere.

    That's almost the exact deal I got. My Silver EX AT I4 was 20,200 plus tax and title. The dealer initially claimed they were losing money, too, since they had already put the VIN etching on the car. I politely told them if they couldn't make the deal, not to do it. But of course they did.
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    TV add's for $199 a month down in the SEast
  • hondahawkhondahawk Posts: 16
    they will either stay the same or offer lower financing. Maybe they'll go 2.9 or 1.9 like they did three years ago.
  • Bought a silver I4 SE for $19,500, add in 7% NJ sales tax, 300 doc fee plus 250plus title/regis fee and it was $21,425 OTD.

    dealer denied vehemently that 750 incentive applied to anything under EX or V6, but doubt he would do deal without it. I'm wondering if he even had 1250 incentive for it.

    20488 plus tax and tag for an Accord EX 5AT. Is this too much, moderate, or okay price?

    Consumer Reports bottom line price for this model is 20937. Feel CR bottom line is set up too high. :mad:
