  • where did you buy in NC and was this a 4cyl or gcyl EX...I was quoted $25,500 OTD in Durham NC on the 190 hp 4 cyl EX....I knew they could do better than that price but it was waht they tried
  • sorry I meant 4 cyl or 6cyl
  • Purchased my 08 EX-L V6 Sedan almost a month ago and have only favorable impressions of the experience. Bought from Lundgren Honda in Auburn,MA and from the knowledgeable salesman to the actual delivery I can think of nothing negative to report on. Initially I was told I would be waiting about 3 weeks for my car to be delivered right from Honda Ohio but 3 days after I put a down payment on the car I received a call saying they located one identical to what I had ordered in Connecticut and it had already been delivered and they were preping it and I could pick it up in 24 hours. Paid around $1,200 below sticker. This is my 5th new car purchase and the least stressful of them all.
  • I've worked hard to get the best deal in the Atlanta area and it looks like $28,538 (inludes only Destination) is the best I can do. Sound about right?
  • The 08 Accords are a trifle overpriced. The remodeled Civic and CRV got expensive and so did the 08 Accord. I think Honda has mispriced the Accords in an economy that is on the brink of recession. Honda messed up with pricing the Ridgeline a bit too high too.

    Just my two cents from a Honda observer.

    PS - I bought my 05 CRV new.
  • 36 month lease 12k/yr.....5 oil changes included
  • I have completed the paperwork tonight and I will pick up my new 2007 honda EXL V6 tomorrow. The total price is $23,800 OTD including 6.5% Tax.

    Could somebody share a pick-up checklist with me or tell me what I should pay attention to when pick up the new car? Thanks.

    RE:08 Accords are a trifle overpriced

    Agreed, That is why even here in the Bay Area there is none on the road and we even have a good economy.

    Unless Honda starts discounting they're just going to sit on the lots, people here just won't pay MSRP for anything,
    there is just to many other choices to do that. :shades:

    Are you guys quoting the invoices supplied by dealer or one found online somewhere? Dealer invoices are usually marked up. If you all know of a place to get the invoice please let me know.

    I agree on them being a bit overpriced. Noway Im spending 31k for a honda accord.

  • dolfan1dolfan1 Posts: 216
    You can get a V6 OTD for that, including tax? I'm not quite sure the way your post is worded. Please clarify.

  • I bought a new Accord on Fri. 10/19. When I was driving to work on Mon. 10/22 the car started sputtering and lurching. It had 50 something miles on it. When I turned the car off and restarted it, the engine check light came on and the ECO light would no longer come on, though the car was driveable at that point. Brought the car in and they are working on it.

    I wanted to see if anyone else had a similar problem and also what people recommend I do. Should I be happy if they fix this? Will my car be as good as new? I'm pretty sure lemon law doesn't come into play (in California) unless I give them 4 chances to fix it. Can I push for a refund or exchange? Is this problem even something I should worry about? What do you guys think?

    I'd like to know too.

    Those prices seem rather low - I'd ask how many they have at each price! Bet not many..... :confuse:
  • What should I be paying for an 07 ex-l (v6/leath) in the so fla area...inventory seems to indicate a fair supply still sitting on the lots.

    thanks :shades:
  • Sorry to hear of your problem. This is the first problem I've heard of with that engine. I bought an 08 EX-L V6 the week before you, and it has performed flawlessly, but I only have about 250 miles on the car. I think you have to give them a chance to fix it. Hopefully it will be something real simple they fix on the first visit. Good luck.

    Yes, you need to give them a chance, be patient. Also, Call American Honda, so that they know about it! That way if the dealer doesn't fix it right, or pulls one on you, than they have awareness of it. Honda takes these situations very seriously. There is no way American Honda would let this one slip through to dealers acting like this. Every Manufacturer is bound to have a kink every now and then, but as long as they take responsibility for it. I would say were real lucky to have American Honda on our side.

    Notify American Honda, that is the best thing you can do.

    Do not pay msrp or over invoice price. We can pay 2008 accord sedan at invoice price. We have buying power, we can determine the price in the market. Ask them to give the price over the phone or by email. Do not come to the dealer until you get the price that you are willing to pay. All their bs marketing strategies are over. Dealer still can pay their all expenses although people are paying invoice price. After 1 month, I paid 08 accord at invoice price. All those salespeople said people have to wait 11 months to get invoice price. They were wrong. If you are in ny and nj, email me for more info.
  • jack47jack47 Posts: 312
    I'm in the market for an accord and I live in NJ.

    Why not just name the dealer you bought from at invoice?

    Domn't need the salesman's name...unless that just happens to be you.
  • I ordered an 08 accord sedan ex-l v6 with NAV at just above invoice at VIP Honda. Did this 3 weeks ago. I haven't received the car yet because they can't locate the exact color combo i'm looking for. Hoping to take delivery in the next few weeks. I know that Open Road Honda was being competitive with price but recently went to $1000 over invoice. Sales guy at Open Road sucked though

    Of course, California has a lemon law :lemon: and that will be your formal "out" should you need one. However, if I were you, I would raise a little hell first to see if the dealership, itself, is willing to do something. Of course, you should wait until the exact nature of the problem is discovered. If it is a simple problem with a simple fix, no big deal. However, if it is more complicated, I would politely, but very firmly, press the dealership to stand behind the product they are selling. I have a fair amount of experience with handling lemon law cases (although not in California) and I will tell you that there is one universal truth . . .the squeaky (but polite) wheel gets the grease! If they are a higher volume dealership and you are a good customer, perhaps there is something they can do.

    If your issue is not resolved quickly, MAKE SURE and keep very good records of the repairs made, the mileage at which those repairs were made, and the amount of time the car spends in the shop. DO NOT depend on the dealership to do this for you!
  • Thanks for the info. I will try to follow your advice.

    P.S. Also, I'm sorry if I posted this under the wrong thread. I'll add my initial post the the maintenance and repair section
