2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • basset3basset3 Posts: 9
    Just bought a new 2002 Accord EX V6 Coupe. Dealer added on pinstriping and splashguards...out the door for $22,500 including transfer fees. NH doesn't have a sales tax, but thought it was a good deal.

    What's anyone else paying?

    Bob Howard Honda in Oklahoma City, $21497 out the door. Steve Bailey Honda in Oklahoma City, $21597 out the door. I bought mine last week at Bob Howard. Nice car, but too much wind noise at highway speeds, and transmission shifts weird.
  • I get the car(no option) at $17000($1100 low than invoice price), Plux tax and tag I totally paid $18260,I don't know is a good price?

    I'm hoping to get an 2002 EX 5spd sometime in the next 6 months for $18,000 or even lower. Is this realistic? I'm in central PA. When do you think would be the best time to get one? I was thinking sept or oct when the 2003s are comming out.

    No, that's not realistic. There is dealer cash on the car right now if you have your own financing, but even that won't bring it down that far.

    for $16992. I have no trade, plan to pay cash so this is real money. While there may not be official rebates in place, apparently Honda is offering generous dealer incentives that are making these end-of-model Accords surprisingly affordable. I see some complaining here and there about the modest power (CR in particular), but I didn't find it so. I drove an Accord VP (135hp) and the LX (150hp). I really couldn't tell much difference power-wise which makes the VP auto @ $14,950 a heck of a deal if you can live without power locks, windows, and mirrors. Both cars drove beautifully. I'm trying to decide tonight if those few power features are worth $2k. I actually liked that no-nonsense feel of the DX with the Value Package....not a thing there you don't need with all the good stuff about an Accord.....reminded me of the old fluff and all business. Any thoughts?

    What should I pay for a 2002, 2 dr. EX, auto trans., V-6, leather, no fancy options, taking into consideration the $750 dealer rebate. I am in the Washington, D.C. area.

    Naples Gold EX-V6, $22,300 including fog lights and wheel locks.

    Pick the car up tonight.

    Even with the dealer incentive, you're out of line. I'd offer that to a dealer as the purchase price, but "out the door" in my book includes doc fee, tax, title and registration.

    I just got an email "lowest prices upfront" quote for 2002 SE with side airbags,mudflaps,pinstripe for $19200. You guys seem to get much better deals in other areas than we do in St.Louis.

    RAYBEAR, I am sorry but I am a newbie when comes to car buying, here are my two questions: One, one dealer give me a quote for $17,700, but after all the fees (includes 6.5% DC Tax), the price went back to $19,500, was that out of line? Also, as you mentioned above, how much those "doc fee, title and registration" normally cost?
  • dardson1dardson1 Posts: 696
    $16999 plus TT&L. No ad fees or anything else other than the usual stuff. $18248 out-the-door with no trade so the full sales tax is in there. I had the assignment from my mom to find the best deal on a reliable car with power windows and enough juice to get out of it's own way. It was fairly easy. Checked out Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, and Subaru. The Accord is the best deal around at the moment (at least a $1000 less than anything comparable) for someone who keeps a car a long time and doesn't care it's an end-of-year, end-of-model vehicle. My wife drives an 01 Lexus ES300. Great car but I can't tell you it feels all that much better than mom's new LX. Honda knows how to make a medium priced car that feels like a luxomobile. With the incentives it's a heck of a deal.

    What is the best price I could probably get on an EX V6 '02' with spoiler, tax, and all, out the door? What are others paying right now and do you think it will come down in a moth or so?
  • raybearraybear Posts: 1,776
    Depends on what you have to pay for registration. Find out what the "doc" fee is, in Maryland it's limited and in Virginia it's not.
  • Just got this deal from the dealer in MI. And I am trying to bargain more.
  • bunk1968bunk1968 Posts: 119
    I live in MI tax is 6% I think the destination fee was between 400 and 500. I was given the lowest quote of 24300 with spoiler and out the door, but I have seen some that have been paying as low as 21 something. They do live in other states though, I didn't think that would make too big of a difference.
  • Check out for good "fair" price comparisons.

    Try carsdirect for a quote, they are a good benchmark.
