    Hey xfumbler;
    Recently in PA I was quoted [in writing] $21,012, including destination, for a 2008 Accord Sedan EX MT. PA tax is 6% and non tax fees were $94, so the OTD was $22,366. So maybe you can get your dealer to lower their price by almost $188. My dealer lowered their base price by throwing in their 2% holdback, plus some of their dealer sales incentive money. Hope this helps if you are still in the negotiation stage. Later.

    San Marino Red qwith Ivory cloth interior.

    The offer from the dealer is $21,777 plus tax & tags. That makes it $23,177 OTD.

    Good deal or not ?

    I'm going to e-mail bomb the local dealers to see if they want to try and do better.

    If I get an amazing offer for an EX or EX-L I'll consider it, but the Mrs actually prefers the cloth seats.

    TIA

    I've used that site quite a bit, from what I've observed some of the prices posted here in the forums are lower than the ones listed on that site.
  • Hi zdad
    I got the car from Bay ridge honda in brooklyn ..i was getting similar quotes from joyce honda, open road honda but i guess all these would b too far for u but i suggest ask for quotes in 50-75 miles radius and then u can get it beaten by ur local dealer. Do read post # 19746 thats really helpful n looking at the forum looks like u shld wait till the month end for the best deal.
    happy shopping.

    I've made the purchase already. As my first new car purchase, if I'm off the best price by $188 I'd say I did a good deal. :) My other offers were 21,480 and 21,699, the latter being of the "we do not negotiate" variety but IIRC that was for an AT. I found no information on any incentives at the time.

    Thanks for the info.
  • was that for an 5AT (5 speed automatic) or manual? for an automatic, that's great. i paid for 2008 accord coupe, EX-L, 5AT,I4 (4 cylinder) with NAVI and appearance package (wheel locks, pinstriping \and mudguards) for $25,500 - when i added VA tax (3.2%), tax/license, processing (their's was $299), destination, etc. it was $27685 OTD
  • tamoshanter... it was for an automatic with NO nav. How are car dealerships able to go below cost if there are no dealer incentives? I know my quote was well above cost.

    thanks
  • yaupon2yaupon2 Posts: 18
    As your first new car purchase you did very well getting it below invoice price. You are absolutely correct that the $188 difference still makes it a great deal. Congratulations and enjoy your new ride.

    Here's an update.....

    E-mailed 4 dealers this morning. Best OTD price for an LX-S (auto) is $23,014. That's in a 6% tax state, and includes $118, for tag & title. That's $150 better than my last offer. Not enough to make me throw my neighborhodd dealer out, but I will make him match that.
    Got one other OTD offer of $23,647. One refused to give me a quote without knowing what the other offers were first. Told him thanks for calling and hung up. Still waiting on one more.

    Also got an offer for an EX-L I$ Auto (no Nav)....$26,194 OTD. That's frankly better than I was expecting. I may end up in a leathered up EX-L !!!

    Why can't more people post like that, rather than yammering on about their awesomeness, not explaining important things like the $2k tradein they gave or even mentioning ANY important information at all (much like THIS post) :)

    I will be looking to purchase a new Accord 08 EX Sedan 5AT. From reading these forums I have an idea about the price. What is unusual is that most of the time people post what they paid below or above invoice. For some reason everyone is getting away from that.

    I would like to know what I should expect to pay relative to invoice. Any ideas, comments or suggestions are more than welcome, thanks.

    I've been getting quotes from dealers in the Atlanta area. Hoping to purchase this month. I've probably emailed with about 7 dealers, and the best quote I've received was...

    MSRP $28,945
    Invoice $26,277

    Selling price $25,393
    Dealer fees $557 (this includes doc fee & appearance package, which they wont budge on)
    Tax (6%) $1,557
    Title $42

    OTD $27,549

    They don't have my first color choice, which is Polished Metal Metallic, but they do have my second choice of Silver. By the way, I will not have a trade in. That price is really making me want to pull the trigger and purchase ASAP.

    San Marino Red with Ivory Leather Interior

    Got the last dealer to e-mail his offer tonight.

    Sticker: $26,595 (incl $635 Destination)
    Offer: $24,153 (which is invoice)
    Tax: $1,449 (6% in PA)
    Tag & Title: $161 (new tags, no trade)

    OTD Price: $25,763.

    This is the best offer i have gotten by $494. Giving my local dealer one chance to match. I male the purchase tomorrow.
  • I just bought a Taffeta White Accord Coupe EX-L for 25646.00 OTD. Negotiated price before fees was 23888.00 which included destination. I am very happy with the car, and I was not expecting to be. I traded in 1 2006 Nissan 350Z touring edition because I needed a back seat for the new born, This car is really nice alternative and the sound parallels the BOSE in the Z. Got it from Chico Honda as it was the ONLY dealer in CA with a white coupe.
  • Congrats on the deal... Was it a manual or AT?
  • hp6130hp6130 Posts: 49
    Zdad, I also live in Pa. and got the exact same car ( you are talking about the 4 door and not the coupe ). I purchased on 3/29/08, but I don't understand why the MSRP and invoice numbers are different. You can see the details of my deal at post #19938, they might help you get a better deal.
  • zdadzdad Posts: 12
    HP....I erred in my title. Mine is a COUPE, not a sedan. Don't know if that makes the difference. Sorry
  • if you can get that coupe EX-L V6 AUTO without NAVI for about $27700 OTD, is a pretty good deal. you may be able to nickel and dime it down to close to $27000, but still pretty good (make SURE it is the OTD price - including EVERYTHING!)

    "I stumbled across a site that has great pricing information... Have any of you seen this before? If so, please tell me what you think."

    OK, I will. As this appears to be your ONLY post here at Edmunds and as the site you found SO helpful is obviously a work in progress (and it needs a LOT of work), your post appears to be nothing more than a spam attempt. If I am wrong, I apologize and ask that you please forgive my cynicism.

    shorty13:

    I just recently purchased an 08' Accord 4cl Sedan 2 weeks ago from the Atlanta area. I also contacted all the dealers in the metro area and found the cheapest price at Milton Martin in Gainesville. My color choice was also polished metal.

    My pricing was

    MSRP: 26,496
    Invoice: 24,xxx
    Price: 22,626 (Include mud guards, paint and appearence)
    Dealer fee: 577
    Tax: (7%)
    Title: 21

    I also added a spoiler, side molding, all weather mats, and trunk tray. Milton would not budge anymore on the price and when I finally decided to purchase they did not have the color I wanted but offered to get it.

    I did not want to wait so, in turn I called several of the dealers who had quoted me much higher prices and most offered to match. However one dealer ED Voyles in Marietta offered to beat it by $100 and match lower quotes on the accessories I had gotten from different dealers.

    They also had a lower processing fee of $497. Larry Calbert was the internet rep and was great to work with and didnt pull anything once I got there after we agreed on pricing over the phone. They had over 700 accords in inventory and might have the car you want. He will probably beat your offer if you ask. They gave me a loaner car to drive twice while they deatiled my car and installed the accessories. I HIGHLY recommened them. Hope this helps. Buying a car has never been this easy for me.

    Best offer I got for LX-S Coupe I-4 (auto) no Nav was $22,602 OTD

    I went with EX-L coupe I-4 (auto) no Nav for $25,763 OTD
  • shorty13shorty13 Posts: 4
    I've actually been in touch with Ed Voyles (with a different internet rep). Their quote was $26,278...OTD would be $28,404.56. I told him that I received a lower quote from another dealer (Hennessy). He just said to bring in the written quote from them, and he would try to match it or beat it.

    I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple of dealers, but I really do appreciate your input. If things don't go well with the others, I'll definitely consider Ed Voyles. So far, they've been very pleasant to deal with via email.

    Hello , i am being quoted $20959 (not including destination charge nor dealer fee) on a 07 Honda Accord EX 5spd MT in South Florida.
    What is a reasonable price to pay for that car being a leftover?

    Thanks in advance.
  • It is the auto. It's not the V6, but I'll be honest, I am not all that unimpressed with th I4. It does QUITE well. I have driven 300 miles and I've still got a 1/4 tank of gas left! The thing just looks sweet. I also did not want the leather, but good god it looks great!
  • Very nice! I'm leaning towards the 4-cylinder myself. I test drove the V6 EX-L Coupe on Monday, but I'll probably go with the 4 due to gas mileage differences. Just like you, I'll probably pass on the leather and navigation, but I'm looking for a manual, which seem to be pretty scarce.

    as long as you are at or below their invoice you did good. i am getting a 4 cyl for $1000 below.

    Hi,
    In Southeaster PA I was just quoted $21,012, including the $635 destination for a 2008 Accord Sedan EX MT 4 cylinder. So it seems that your dealer has room to improve their quote of $21,594 including destination for an '07. Also, in a few months the '07 will be down two model years when the '09's arrive in showrooms.
