    I was quoted the following price and was wondering if it is a good deal.

    2009 Honda Accord Sedan automatic transmission
    Model EX-L

    $24,469
    $1,468.14 - 6% sales tax in PA
    $195.15 - tags
    OTD price of $26,132.29

    Can I go lower? I heard someone was quoted $23,895 including destination charge.

    What is a good price in the Philly region in today's credit market?

    I will be purchasing the car by this week so any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks!
  • I got a quote of $24,420 for a 2009 Coupe EX-L 4 Cyl in New York

    includes destination, prep-fees and all incentives (Does not include tax, and DMV fees)

    What do you think? Think this is a good deal?
  • Anyone have any clue whether Honda finance will be having any great deals next month when the current incentives expire? Current rate is 3.9 for 60 months, was hoping to do better.
  • I am looking to purchase a coupe soon.

    Interested in some accessories like:
    1) remote starter
    2) fog lights
    3) tints

    am i better off getting these on my own or thru a dealer? Best prices?

    I am looking at either an 08 or an 09 EX-L (4 cyl). Is there a formula for calculating the discount for the 08's, considering the 09's are available? It looks like the first year's depreciation on these cars is about $6,000. Should that be the discount, all else equal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dream on......

    That's only the depreciation once you drive it over the curb. I think you'll find in actual negotiations, that it isn't worth it to take the 2008.

    Look at used car price differential between 2 model years, for model years that are 3-4 years old....that would be a truer differential.

    fair enough; that's what I was trying to assess.

    Hey Guys,

    I am currently negotiating a deal for an 09 Accord V6 EX-L w/ Nav Sedan with a dealer right now. After a back and forth negotiation, we came up to this number:
    Sale price: $27,461.26
    Document Fee: $150
    Tax(7%):$1,922.29
    Drive off Tag: $10
    Total:$29,543.55

    What do you guys think? a decent deal or not?
  • Just got back after a test drive of the 09 LX Auto.

    The dealer revised his earlier quote of 20300 to 20015+ taxes+tags

    6% Sales Tax, 190 for registration and tags.

    The OTD is close to 21,400.

    Good deal from what I've seen whats the 150 doc fee what state are you in
  • szerszer Posts: 80
    i am in IN, but dealership is in IL
  • I received a signed quote for $28,000. This is $500 below invoice. Does anyone think that there can be a better deal made? I am Rochester NY.
  • If its a LX-P, got for it. If its a LX, thats too high of a price. I wouldn't pay more then $21K for a LX automatic. See if the dealer will go lower. One thing is for sure, the Accord is a excellent car.

    I thought the same way when I bought my 2004 Accord coupe at the end of the year clearance. Model year to Model year the differance now 4.5 years later is 2k, but when you price it up on kbb or galves or the actual trade they add back in 1500 for low milage. So if you drive what they consider the norm 10-12k a year you get most of the differance back in a mileage adjustment. Just know the value of what your trading in and make the dealers level up on the trade dealer to dealer.
  • So the MSRP is $31,425. The invoice is $28,536...

    The dealer holdbacks could be 3% (942.75) or I have heard up to 5% (1,571.25) of the MSRP from the invoice price.

    $28,536 - (3%) 942 = $27,594...

    I do not know how much more you could get them to come down. How did you get them at 27,461.and 26 cents? What did you use to negotiate?

    I would take the deal!
  • I would like to know strategy worked to get price under the invoice by so much...

    Any help is appreciated.

    it's still tentative. I haven't sign on the dot and will be coming in on the LAST DAY :P ... my method is just to pool all available dealers in the potential area and email everyone of them. From there, I look for the most competitive and honest and cut down the list to 5 dealers, then to 3 dealers and let them duke it out until the last one standing. I'll update everyone how it goes once I get in on Friday.
  • I got a quote in bay area for 09 Accord EX-L V6, which is $26,225 plus TTL. Total comes to about $28,703. Is that a good deal?
    The dealer also gives me a quote of $23,925 plus TTL for 09 Accord EX-L.

    "I received a signed quote for $28,000. This is $500 below invoice. Does anyone think that there can be a better deal made? I am Rochester NY."

    Forget the quote.. go for the OTD price. Just because a dealer has the lowest quote does not mean they will have the lowest OTD price... remember we ALL pay an OTD price.
  • Most of you guys have too much time in your hand....... and all of you are moch big time moch... let the dealer make some money so they can stay in business and be there when u need service... Yes I work for dealer been in business long time...

    Get a life buy the car... I bet most of you guys dont have anything better to do in life then moch a dealer for few hundreds... so you can feel like a man......
  • szerszer Posts: 80
    get a life... consumers are free to negotiate any way they want. That's why they call it the free market DOH :mad: ... btw was bait and switch... used the" i forgot the destination fee trick and charged a crazy $333 doc fee :P ... lucky i hadn't go in there to deal.

    Found a Honda Accord LX-P 2008 in Peoria, IL for an internet price of $19,884. The car has almost 6000 miles on it and was used as a demo car. Should I ask the dealer to come down on the price or is this a good price for a car with this many miles?
  • bbockbbock Posts: 1
    Great deal, could you tell me city and name of dealer..Thanks

    What's more pathetic, a consumer browsing internet message boards educating themself on the car buying process and prices of the particular make and model they're interested in? Remember, we buy once every few years. Or someone like you in the biz browsing internet message boards whining and complaining about consumers educating themselves about the 2nd biggest purchase of their life?
  • I almost bought a 2008 LX-P for about $19,750 plus document fee, tax, and title. I am waiting for credit approval. Also comes with a trunk liner and mud guards. Has about 500 miles on it.
  • Folks,

    Thanks for all the expert opinions. Finally pulled the trigger.

    Total cost - 26410 (including destination fees)
    Also including in the price- power pack (floor mats, trunk tray, locking lug nuts and tint)

    Hope its a good price - No regrets anyway, since its too late.

    TTL extra.

    Thanks again.
  • just FYI, one of our members bought a brand new 08 Accord LX-P in July for 19400 (12 miles), and now should be cheaper if you could still find leftovers. 19884 for a car with 6000 mile is not a good deal.
  • 1. If you got skills and know what you need to do, you don't spend much time on car purchase.

    2. Are you sure it is only few hundred, not few thousand?

    3. So people working in car dealer are feeling like a men by ripping off car shoppers? :confuse:
  • Purchased a 2009 Accord EX 4-cyl. for $23,800 total out the door. I was trying to decide between the Accord and a 2008 CRV, but in the end I went with the Accord. I got the feeling they were really ready to deal on the CRV's though. I have the breakdown somewhere, but I'm exhausted. Tax was 7.25% and the doc was $670. I think the negotiated car price was $22,300 or something close to that. I feel that I got a good deal. In hindsight, If I had more energy at the time and was a better negotiator, I think they may have come down a bit more. If anyone wants more information, let me know. Thanks to all in these forums for sharing their information.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. It appears to be right around invoice. Congrats!
