    I bought an Accord EX 4cylinder for 21,500 out of the door in MD yesterday. I am debating whether to get gap insurance.. I have financed the car with Honda on a 4 year, 4.9% loan,

    Assuming the car depreciates to 15,000 in 1 year (which, hopefully, is an overestimate), I will break even in 1 year (i.e., the money I owe to the finance company will be less than or equal to the depreciated value of the car) .

    So, any suggestions on whether to take gap insurance or not?

    TIA

    Was this a good deal ?

    I haven't read an AHFC financing contract . . . but the AHFC lease contract provides gap insurance automatically (at least in California). They don't call it gap insurance - it's called Total Loss Protection. So check it out dawg (how'd Randy get in here?) - maybe you already have it!

    Hello all,
    I see prices of cars about 600 to 1000 dollars more in Colorado than on the coasts. Assuming that all dealers in the country get the same incentives from Honda to move the cars why are the dealers in Colorado so greedy?
    Colorado is just an example. I am sure the situation is the same in some other interior states.

    I did not get too bad of a deal. I paid $19000+taxes for an LX Auto. But I had to work for it though. People on the coasts are paying less than that for an SE Auto which is at least $400 more than the LX Auto. And they don't even have to bargain. :mad:

    I got a quote for the 07 Accord EX Coupe (non-leather) for:
    MSRP $24,045
    Internet Price $21,400
    Doc Fee $250
    Options $1,078 (leather wheel, silver trim kit & spoiler)
    Total:: 22,728.
    Is this a good price?

    I don't need a car right now, could there potentially be better deals at the end of the year? Waiting would also give me a chance to wait until the 2008 models come out to make sure I don't want one of those.

    Just bought a 07 Accord EX, four door, auto trans, total otd 23807.52.
    car sales price:20.007
    mud mat+cargo mat+Pin Striping:750.00
    6 year/80000 miles extend warranty:1200
    State Tax:1200
    documentation fee:58.48+15=73.48
    trade in 1996 NIssan Sentra/151000 miles:-800

    I am afraid I was fooled by the dealer and overpaid, sigh.

    Here's how to even the score just a bit:

    Return your warranty to the dealer for a refund (yes, you can do this within the first 60 days). Go to the Saccucci Honda website and purchase it there. Same exact Honda-backed warranty - usable at any Honda dealer (don't let your dealer tell you otherwise) - can be bought anytime within your first 6000 miles and you still get the "new vehicle" rate. For the 6 year/80,000 mile coverage you bought: $560!

    Thank you very much. I will to that tomorrow.

    Shake it off. If it's the worst mistake you ever make you'll be doing well. I don't buy the warranty. I mean, it's a Honda. Cancel the warranty and consider not having a warranty. You've got 3/36 anyway. Or wait 5k before buying and assess if you have a good, tight car or not. Just my .02.

    You say at Gunn Honda? I've been at their site (and the dealer) and don't remember prices that low, esp with "1 simple price"! Can you be more specific? Thanks....

    Looking to buy a new accord in central texas (live in Austin, but will travel to San Antonio if needed). Was quoted 21,900 before TT&L in Austin tonight for EX model. Hoping to buy LX or EX at or below invoice. Anyone advice?
  • I got a great quote in NoVa but we live in Florida. Will Honda dealers down here meet or beat that price? How would I go about asking them to do this? thank you!
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    Go in to the dealer and make an offer to buy the vehicle for that great price you have. See if they'll take it.

    The DC area tends to me more competitive (and hence lower prices) than FL, but try it. Worst they can do is say no, and counter with a different price.

    You then get to decide whether it is worth the difference to buy it in Florida, versus buy it in Va and drive it down.

    They were running some great deals over the Memorial day weekend, not sure whether they are still in effect. Email me if you need further information.

    Not if they learn where the quote is from - too far away.

    Still, the idea is if one dealer could sell for that price then any could - except incentives can be regional. The dealer in VA could be getting more dealer money than your local dealers, so they could not match the price.

    The other problem is that unless you "know" the dealer in VA to be on the level, you could do the travelling to get the good price and learn that they did not include destination and dealer fees in the quote (or something like that) and once in the door you can't get it as cheap as you though. They figure after you have flown or driven in, you are not likely to leave without the car - even if the price is a good bit higher than you thought. Not all dealers are like this, many give you a nice price and stick to it when you arrive - but there are some who play games, even with distant customers.

  • I finally found one that would kind of meet it- he met it but added in the additional 4% extra FL sales tax (sales tax is only 3% in VA). I thought this was pretty fair, but now I have that quote and now am boucing it off many dealers around this area... trying to get the 07 Sedan EX-L V6 automatic in Desert Mist color for under 25K out the door in the Tampa area. Does this sound reasonable?

    Out the door means NO extra charges added on at the end, right?

    The best offer I've been given so far for a 2007 Special Edition Accord Sedan w/ AT (no accessories) is from Riverside Metro Auto Group (I'm in Cali):

    Internet Price + dest fee: $18,529
    Total (tax, doc fee, license): $20,337.93

    Gudy Honda and Metro Honda in Montclair have both said they'll match this price, but can't do any better. What do you guys think?
  • Getting closer to the goal, any Florida people on? Do you think 25,500 OTD is a good deal for the v6 sedan Ex-L?
    I argued 3 dealers to that point today, but the one closest to me thought it was 3500 too low. He showed us the invoice and said his dealers would lose their shirt on that deal. We were like, oh well, we will drive an hour away and get the deal there, your loss.
