  • How do i find the invoice on a car? When members of the forum say 1000 below invoice, do you mean 1000 below the edmunds.com shown invoice?
    My car salesman told me that if i want to find real invoice on the car, i should just subtract 700 from his offer.....
    any help in understanding these offers and the whole holdback/advertising fee ( should i subtract it from the invoice shown on edmunds to get to real invoice)concept will be very much appreciated :sick: tired and sick of dealing with dealers...
  • Just purchased an '08 Accord EX-L V6 w/o navi sedan from AutoWest in Roseville, CA.

    Price = 25,300 + TTL

    I went through their internet sales department and priced it against several other local dealers. AutoWest came back with the best deal. There seems to be a lot of Silver color models left in the area so you can probable get a great deal.

    I even got a nice finance deal of 0.9% financing for 36 months.

    Good luck.
  • I came to know from my colleague that Honda has marked down the price for 2009 Honda Accords by $2000.

    Is this info correct?

    Thanks,

  • I bought 2009 Honda Accord Sedan 4cyl for an OTD - $25000 in VA.
  • Google 2009 Honda Accord Invoice Price

  • hi mplshondadlr

    Someone mentioned a major price reduction for accords (post #21921). Is this true. Can you give us the breakdown?

    thanks
  • That's absolutely WRONG.

    Prices can be found at on Honda's website, and on the 2009 Accord, they have gone UP.
  • May I ask Which Accord did you get ?
  • I'm looking to buy the 2009 EXL 4cyl AT. The only prices I have gotten are from local dealers reponding to my "Edmunds Requests a Qoute". The dealer claims the price $100 over invoice & detination, ie. . Here is a direct qoute from the email they sent:
    "My lowest price on the 2009 EXL is invoice $24,569 + $149 doc fee. If anybody tells you they can sell it for lower than that they are not being truthful."
    Can I buy the car for less ?
    Thanks,

  • I have bought 2009 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan 4cyl. $23000 base price + Taxes & everything= $25000
  • Thanks for your reply. Was the $23000 including destination and doc fee?
  • No This was just the price of the car....It was total OTD : $25000
  • guess i'm an idiot because i can't figure out how to email another member on here?!

    i was just about to close on a coupe @kuhn honda in tampa. i have a great price, but from reading on here, it seems wesley chapel might be able to do better. can you mail me the name of your salesman? was it the internet sales manager or fleet manager?

    thanks in advance!
  • this included the decklid spoiler. TTL was $27,774. I found that same car w/o navi could be had MUCH cheaper...dealers are loaded with them. There aren't too many with Nav though so I was happy with my price. Edmunds and others list invoice within $100 of 26,100.. They delivered the car to my home wiht all paperwork ready. It took less than 1 hour. I love my Bluetooth and Navi!!!
  • I just sent you a message. Let me know if you did not receive it. Good luck!
  • I just picked up a new 09 LX-S (4-cyl) for $21930.12 plus $299.00 for the paint/fabric protection. I think that's a good deal considering the sticker price is $23,725. They didn't charge at all for the "protection package" (trunk liner, splash guards, door guards). I don't think they are making a ton off the financing, either, because I got 8.6% through Honda with so-so credit. I did see the invoice for the car, and it was about $200 more than what I paid. You never know with car dealers, but I think I got a good deal.
  • Hello,
    I have tried to get my car (Accord'07) repaired 3 times for the same problem (rattling noises) but without any success. I bought the car in New Jersey. Can anyone suggest or share experience regarding which arbiteration process is the most helpful one? There are number of arbiteration processes:- NJ State aribiteration process, BBB process, NADA, or a law suit in a court.

    Appreciate any help in this regard.

    Thanks,
  • Price $27,000 (Includes the wheel locks, mud flaps, trunk tray, pin stripes and destination)
    Sales Tax $949.06 (6.25% in Texas, we had $12,000 trade)
    Dealer Inventory Tax $46.36
    Inspection and Title Fee $54.75
    License Fee $72.30
    Documentary Fee $50.00
    Deputy Service Fee $5.00 (didn't think to ask what the heck this is)

    Tint was extra $185. We also added $125 value care plan which gets us four oil changes (1 every 5,000 mi) and two tire rotations. We were able to get 2.9% on 48 months after initially being pitched 5.2%. Finance mgr looked at me like I was out of my mind when I said 2.9 was what we were looking for. I was counting on their sales being slow and our credit. Anyway, he left and came back after a few minutes (and after we almost left) with the 2.9. I feel really good about getting this on an '09. I figure we'll save over $800 for the life of the loan.

    I know we could have done much better with an '08, but it's my wife's car and she wanted an '09. And like the salesman kept saying, "she's the boss!".

    Hoping the experienced buyers who know their numbers can help me out. I'm specifically looking for a Honda Accord LX either 2008 or 2009 with polished metal metallic as the color (dark grey) and black cloth seats for the interior. One dealership in Los Angeles gave me an internet price of $19507 (this includes the destination charge, but not the tax, license, etc fees) and said he can have my color combo here in about a day (he said there are only 4 of these in my color scheme in CA). He would also beat the loJack discount price that I was quoted through the AAA rep.

    My other quote was through the AAA referral program and that is for a 2009 Honda Accord LX, invoice total listed as $20,418.36 then she added $500 (I guess this is the price over "invoice") and with tax, license, etc fees the grand total comes to $22,951.02.

    Do these two prices seem reasonable? I don't know how much $ is reasonable over invoice for their commission. Any help would be great! Thanks!

    Is the accord better than the camry and the lexus IS?
  • Contacting these people - http://www.lemonlaw.com/ - I used them when my 04 Ford Explorer had extensive problems and they got me a great settlement - It took almost 2 yrs, but it was well worth it. Best of all, they don't get paid if you don't so it's a win-win...good luck
  • Hi all...
    I am looking to purchase either a 2008 or 2009 Accord 4 cyl, auto, in EX or EX-L trim. So far, Here are my best quotes:

    EX
    2008 - 22,000
    2009 - 22,600

    EX-L
    2008 - 23,700
    2009 - 24,600

    What do you think so far?

    I am in the south burbs of Chicago.
  • What dealer did you get it at? and could you also email me name of person sold you the car? and did you negotiated the price of the car before the trade-in? as I am interest in the same car you bought. thank you
  • Bankston Honda in Lewisville. Our salesman was Dennys (a guy, and yes, it is with a "y", not an "i", and is pronounced like "Dennis"). We didn't negotiate with him, but rather through him, as he was a messenger running the offers and counter offers back and forth. I actually liked doing it that way because it was low pressure not having someone stare you in the face to see if you'll bite. I don't know if they always do business that way, but we never saw who he was running the numbers to. I'd highly recommend him. He was very accommodating while we took our time looking at several cars and was very polite...not flippant, condescending or impatient at all. They still have some '08's if you want to try to get the 1.9% and better price.

    We negotiated the price and trade at the same time, but the trade was agreed on quickly. We looked up the trade by condition/mileage on kelly blue book. They were $500 off what we told ourselves we should get and came up to that on our first counteroffer, no problems.

    Overall, it was a pleasant experience until we got to the finance guy. He tried to rush us through it by pushing the documents in our face too quickly for signatures and got real short and testy ("I guess you don't want the car", etc.) when we were like "whoa whoa...wait...not at that interest rate". I don't know if 2.9% on an '09 through AHF is all that common yet so early in the model year, but that is what we got after we threatened deal's off/we're leaving.
  • Please help, I have email several dealer in Houston area but the lowest I could get was 27,000 + TT&L. And I saw some one posted that he/she got I4 EXL for $23,000 + TT&L, so the price for V6 should be 25,000 + TT&L?? I understand that there's different in price if you in a diff. maket area but is it really that much diff?
    Any help on how to get my 2009 Accord EXL V6 for the lowest possible price is much appricated.. thank you.. thank you very much

  • been working on trying to negotiate via the internet. I have been pretty frustrated by clearly form responses that always end in "when can you come in?" The form responses seem to have almost nothing to do with whatever I say in my email.

    i can only say that it is similar to trying to negotiate with a magic 8 ball.

    Me: I'd like to offer $25,200 on XXXX car.
    Response: It is decidedly so. When can you come in?
    Me: I'd like to get a quote from you on XXXX car. My best offer is $yy,yyy.
    Response: Most likely. When can you come in?
    Me: I am serious, i am looking to purchase as soon as i come to an agreement on price. Can you beat $yy,yyy? If you can do $ww,www we have a deal.
    Response: Signs point to yes. When can you come in?
  • I got an offer for $24950 before TTL for 09 EXL V6 w/o Navi too. Actually it was 24250 + $699 doc fees so basically $24950. This was in Tampa Florida. I ended up with a 09 EX I4 though.
  • The price is way too high compared to what I got durning the labor day weekend. It was a 09 EX I4. Price before TTL is about $203xx.xx and out of door is $218xx.xx. This was in Tampa, FL. No trade was involved.
