2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • don't understand why ppl ask if the price they PAID for a car is a good deal. Do they need some kind of reassurance or something? It's not like you can return the car to the dealer after you drove off the lot.

    Part of the decline of America through loss of independence. These days, most people want someone to tell them what to do and a doofus like Dr. Phil to reassure them that they are doing fine.

    I've always wondered the same thing.

    AFTER buying a car, they come to these forums and ask..." Did I get a good deal?"

    And, when they do this, someone will always rain on their parade by telling them how they paid too much.

    Well said.

    Let's far, I have heard people say the new Accord looks like an Acura TL, a Lexus, A BMW, and now, a Hyundai!

    " It looks like a cross between a XXX and a XXX"

    I hear that every time a new design is introduced.

    " Oh, I just LOVE the new Accords"

    or.." What was Honda thinking...why did they mess it up?"

    Go figure, this is why I pay no attention to the detractors.
  • I don't pay attention to the praisers either. I only care if I like it. But see my previous post.

    Hope to see one today if Humberto passes. Even in New Orleans we are getting some thunderstorms.

    " I only care if I like it"

    My point exactly!

    In post #17124 you wrote "Invoice in six months? Ah...don't think so."

    That's exactly what you wrote about the latest generation of Civics in the Fall of 2005. Your were wrong then and you will find that your are again too optimistic, as any salesperson must be.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 19,067
    I wasn't wrong in my neck of the woods.

    We don't sell them for invoice now. Why should we? They are great cars and not distressed merchandise.
  • More new 2008s on Ebay - some discounts and some markups. Prices listed are their "Buy it now" prices.

    Let's stick to the topic....

    If people are reporting the price they paid, that is a good thing... If they want to know if they got a good deal, that is okay, too..


    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • I am still shopping for a car. It is helpful to read
    about prices paid by others and their overall
    experience in dealing with the seller. I'll
    share my experience after completing a purchase,
    just to give back to such a great forum.
  • There are some dealers in Dallas area who charges $2500 to $3000 over the MSRP. If you are getting those offers then you should inquire these dealers in nearby area, they are not charging anything over the MSRP as a price. These dealers are: John Eagle Honda, Bankston Honda, Freeman Honda, Honda in Duncanville, Frank Kent Honda in FortWorth, Salespersons are very friendly in this dealership. I will update the list later. :shades:
  • I have following quote from a dealer in DFW area:

    2007 LX MSRP. $21,520. Internet price:$18,563.5 (include destnation charge)

    2007 SE MSRP. $22,220. Internet price:$19,196 (include destination charge)

    Can anybody tell me if this is a good price? Or do you have a better quote? from which dealership? Any contact info.
  • I got the offers from John Eagle Honda,Frank Kent Honda, Bankston Honda for Honda Accord EX-L Navigation MSRP $28695(Destination Included)+TTL
    If someone get better offer in DFW area please post in the Forum.....Thanks :shades:
  • I'm confused. You want to compare prices, but you don't say what they quoted you. Or did you mean they quoted MSRP? :confuse:
  • After seeing prices see-saw the last few months it looks like the best time to buy the Accord is 3 to 4 months before the end of the model year of an outgoing design. Once the newly designed Accord hits the showrooms, with prices closer to MSRP the dealers seem to be less inclined to offer big discounts on the outgoing model cars.
  • myodyssey1, can you please contact me.
  • When "Mr. Opportunity" starts knocking, you should seriously look at buying that Honda you've been looking for. Honda's year-end clearance advertising is well-known for its timing.
  • I received quotes that are almost identical to yours
    (from 2 dealers in NJ). Very interesting.

    Having missed out on deals on a Sedan (apprently),
    I am beginning to consider buying a 07 Accord Coupe
    for which the $2000 rebate is still in place.
    I was quoted $17,679 + tax + tags
    for a 07 Accord Coupe LX AT 4 cyl. I understand that
    the car is not as roomy as a sedan. Comments
    on the model and price/quote would be appreciated.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 19,067
    The worst thing a person can do is buy a car they really don't want just because of the price!

    You will quickly forget what you paid anyway.

    I'm afraid that those who waited and waitied, thinking prices would go down further have outsmarted themselves.

    The selection is now down to almost nothing.
  • :shades: I've been looking to purchase the Accord for some time. The best quote received during the Opportunity sale was 22,872 OTD in NJ. However, they did not have the car on the lot as they claimed so we left.

    We decided to give it another shot last week. Not too many dealers have the 4 cyc in stock, nevertheless the color we wanted. S0 long story short - We got the car!

    The details:

    2007 Accord EXL - auto, 4 cyc
    MSRP: 25,645
    Sale Price: 21,300
    Tax+Docs: 23,200 OTD
    Dealer threw in wheel locks, mud guards, trunk tray...

    Not too shabby for the "aftersale".

    No regrets here - we got exactly what we wanted!
  • In my case I didn't know that I'd need a new car
    until ealier this month. So it is a case of starting late
    rather than pure indecision. But in general your point is well taken. It would be a compromise between taste
    and price if I get a coupe. I do appreciate your opinion.
  • Your right. I bought a Hybrid around 8/11 and got an incredible deal. Bought another one on 9/13 and couldn't come close to the same deal. :(
  • Could you please tell me which NJ dealer you got yours from? I'm also interested in an 07 Accord EX-L. I have a feeling you got yours from Open Road Honda.
  • Has anyone had success finding this car at the price mentioned ($22375+destination charge+tax+title+doc.fee)in California? So far, the larger dealers are saying high 23K's is the best they can do?

  • everblue - No - I got the car from DCH Paramus (great service). However VIP Honda gave me the best quote.

    My issue with Open Road was they allowed us to test drive a SOLD car!!

    Good luck!
  • Tax + Docs = $1900? Pretty hefty doc fees.
    But overall the OTD (which is what counts)
    still beats the best quote I got.
  • I bought it from VIP Honda at NJ. You should be able to get even better deal in California.

    MSRP is $27400, internet price is $22375. This is EXL V6 Auto. color is desert mist, I like it!
  • You got good deal. I was looking to buy EXL, auto 4 cyc orignially. The best quote I got was $21400-$21500 (including destination charge). What color did you choose?
  • I disagree. I almost always buy a car based on price. To many times you hear people falling in love with one particular car and just gotta have it. This is when the dealers have you and flip you over upside down on a car. I buy on price realizing a car is just a method of transportation and I will sell it in a few years and get another one.
    I always remember the price I paid for a car and am sure everyone else does. If they get taken for a ride by a dealer the unpleasant feeling associated with the purchased car will be experienced every time they drive it or think about their car.
    Now if you get a car at a good price you will always think about the positive situation with the car, while your making the monthly payments and when you go to trade the car in on your new car, by not being flipped over in it.
