    Oh, I don't think I said that.

    Someone else thought they would be sold at invoice within a few months and I did take exception to that.

    I suppose I could be wrong however?

    So, did that attorney got cheated or did he pay "too much".

    Nope, he paid what it took to buy that car at that time and, no doubt he was happy.

    People did the same thing with Miatas and PT Cruisers when they were new and hot on the market.

    Now PT Cruisers are almost impossible to unload!

    Yes you WILL be wrong. Invoice will be here by Xmas! :)

    In post 2364 on the 2008 Honda Accord Coupe and Sedan forum you stated:

    These will be bring all of the money for quite awhile.

    http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.efe7679/2363?@@

    I interpreted "all of the money" to be full MSRP. Is that not what you meant?
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,646
    Yeah, I guess I did say that.

    Well, the MARKET will always determine pricing. I just don't see why any smart dealer would start dumping a great car unless they are forced into it.

    A great product shouldn't have to be deeply discounted in order to sell.
  • I've heard that 2008 Camry's are being discounted at around 12%. Does anyone here think that Honda would have to come close to that to stay competitive?
  • I wouldn't pay over invoice for any car, Accord included.. Honda has the capacity to crank out 500k Accords/yr for this market. If any dealer is gouging on the 2008, just head for the Camry store. It IS the dealer's right to charge what it wants, however. Remember, the dealer owns the car before you do; it is just "reselling" it to you.

    Some Honda cars will likely never be negotiable, due to constrained supply. Demand for the Fit is probably 3 times the available supply for the States.

    I hope Honda stays price-competitive with Camry. I must admit, the new Accord is not the quantum leap forward I was expecting. The Camry exterior seems a bit better looking although the Accord interior now rivals Mercedes. But the Altima Coupe is a far more provocative design than the Accord Coupe's. And if the Malibu 4cyl/6sp auto combo can save the consumer $2k over an Accord, Honda better start worrying...and dealing.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,646
    Well, that would take them down to invoice so I doubt it.

    It's different car. People who like Hondas will buy Hondas instead of settling for something else just over dollars.

    Toyota people are pretty loyal to Toyota too.

    I would hate to think someone would settle for somethin else over a few dollars but I know for some people, that's all they care about.
  • Yes you WILL be wrong. Invoice will be here by Xmas!

    I agree...Accord, Camry and Altima are mass production cars. The price is close to MSRP only for the first couple months of its new design.

    " I wouldn't pay over invoice for any car"

    Well, I guess there are a lot of cars out there you would never own!

    I'm curious...is it VALUE you are looking for when you buy a car, or is it simply PRICE. Just asking.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,646
    Oh yeah...that Malibu would be a GREAT buy!!

    The 2000.00 that you "save" now will go away quickly when it's time to get rid of the thing!

    I guess it's all about the "deal" and not the car, huh?
  • No, $17,200 is not a good deal for 07 Accord VP AT. You should ask for $18,208 (invoice including destination) - $583 (3% hold back) - $800 (current Honda rebate) = $16,825 or even less. I was offered $15,625 (including destination) when there were $2000 Honda rebate before Sept. 4th.

    ***trying to remind myself why I try to stay out of the Prices Paid Forums***

    So, you are suggesting that a store sell a new Accord for invoice, less holdback, less incentives?

    Why would they bother opening thier doors?
  • Yes, why not? You are doing them a favor by getting an remaining 07 off their lot. Don't worry, they also have bonus and dealer fee to compensate. At the end, they still make a few bucks off you.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,646
    I'll spare you the lecture about overhead and the cost of doing business.

    They still aren't distressed merchandise and it's pretty unlikely a dealer would take a loss on one.

    I suppose they could, but why?
  • Thanks. I did contact several local dealers
    on Sept 3 about a 07 Accord VP AT, but the
    best quote was something like
    $17600 + tax + tags, before the $2000 expired.
    After Sept 4, a couple of dealers gave me
    the lower quote of $17200 + tax + tags
    when the rebate is now only $800. This
    kind of confused me: did the manufacturer really
    withdraw the $2000 rebate and replace it with
    a $800 rebate? Or, the $2000 rebate is still
    available to the dealers, but they are just less
    willing to share it with the buyer because
    of decreased inventories?
    Lastly I want to say that it has been really
    educational to read this forum.
  • I picked up a 08 Accord EX Sedan Automatic, 4cyl with cloth interior for $22,840 + TTL (Total of $24,493) here in Dallas. It included the trunk tray, wheel locks, mud flaps, door edge guards, body side moldings, moonroof visor, window tint, pin stripe, and paint and fabric protection. Basically got the car at invoice and paid $600 for the accessories all installed.

    I think I got a pretty good deal...what do you guys think?

    I don't know that we ever got confirmation that the dealers did get a $2,000 incentive for the VP. I searched the previous posts here and didn't find anything to that effect.

    It seemed like the dealers got $2,000 on higher trim lines like the EX-L V6, because numerous people bought those cars at significant prices below invoice.

    It's possible that Honda didn't find it financially beneficial to pay out $2,000 for a car that costs a lot less and for a car that may have been in shorter supply.

    We know they are getting $800 for the VP now, so this may be why your quote is lower than before Sep 4th.
  • What kinda deal did you get on a 2008?
    Please share it with us.
  • I think VP's did have a 2k dealer cash bonus, I bought one for 2500 under invoice.
  • I stopped by the local Honda dealer this afternoon and the '08 in the showroom had a dealer pack ("appearance package" ) of $700 plus an ADM of $3K over Monroney.

    Walked out to the back lot and the '08's there only had the $700 pack over MSRP. "Oh, we've got to change these" was the reply. Fair enough... They are free to ask whatever they think the market will bear. Basic Supply and Demand 101.

    Interestingly enough, all the I4's on the lot were J-VIN (Japan) and the V6's were all Ohio made.

    Maybe this is a West Coast thing... I'm in the SF Bay Area. It would be interesting to see if the rest of the country gets J-VIN I4 Accords.
  • Just bought 2007 Accord EXL V6 Auto from VIP Honda in NJ. Paid $22375+destination charge+tax+title+doc. fee, is this good deal? $22375 is best price I can get now, I called 4 to 5 different car dealers and no one can offer lower than $22375.
  • The I4's at my dealer here in Michigan were also built in Japan.

  • with or without navigation?
  • It's a ok deal since it's more like $23000 included dest.
  • You heard it here first.

    08 Accord looks like a Hyundai Sonata, it will be a BUST!
    by this time next year Honda will be discounting like the 07. :shades:

    The O8 EXL 4-cylinder navi I test drove in Louisville, KY, was built in Ohio.

    I was wondering who would be the first to slam the new Accord!

    To each his own...

    These 2 statements don't agree. The previous gen accord was a huge success. So if the '08 sells the same way, I don't see how that can be a bust. Honda is certainly making good profit on every '07 it sells. Nothing wrong with that. There are plenty of other manufacturers who would sell their souls for such a "bust."
