2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Have received 2 internet quotes for $21,970 + 3% tax, $ 199 process fee, including destination. Is this is a good price for Virginia? Are there current dealer incentives that will should bring down this price?

    Best quote in Dayton OH for SE V6 $20,167(selling price incl dest) and prior to taxes/fees. OTD would be $21,770.64

    It depends where you are located. I just bought an EX-L 4cyl w/ auto trans yesterday for 21,000 plus TTL. The destination charge is included. The only problem is that the special financing is no longer available so I financed through my credit union at 5.9% for 60/months. I'm located in Chicago. The worst part about buying a car in Chicago is the taxes we have to pay 9%. I think I did pretty well any comments? :)

    Just bought a 07 Accord VP A/T for 15,900+TTL. I am in N. California. Hope it is a good deal.

    its only 1K? i took the TMV price of 25211 which was lower than the invoice price+destination charge less 1700 bucks.

    I thought i was getting it for 1700 under total invoice + destination charge.......

    Drive home a new 07 Accord 4dr I4 EXL Auto. Love it. :)

    Invoice price : $23,166
    Consumer report Bottom Line price : $22,414

    Base Price : $21600
    OTD Price : $23700

    Only 3 miles on the vehical.

    This is at Bay Area, Northern California. Use Edmunds to send out quote requests 3 days ago with few dealers. Pick the best quote and go. They will try to call you, don't contact with them until you get a quote you like.

    Dont forget to call insurance company before meeting the dealer. I was flip-flopping between I4 and V6 until I call the insurance company, I'll have to pay $350 more then I4 for my 6 months premium. So, the insurance company pick for me.

    So did you pay for the Consumer Reports "service" ?

    I am a CR fan and a long time subscriber, but I don't get folks paying them for the new car pricing report. Right here on Edmunds you can find dealer incentives. You can find invoice prices lots of places. You can get Edmunds "what others are paying" prices and look at for an idea of what you should pay. And finally, you can use this forum to see what folks are paying today for the same car.

    From the looks of your deal, if you had gone in and offered them the CR bottom line price it would have cost you $814! It just seems like a waste of money to me.

  • ahbengahbeng Posts: 3
    Yes, I paid $14.

    I believe this time Honda give some incentive to dealers CR did not know. So, I don't blame CR. With the CR report on hand, I know where I stand. I see thing from another angle, with $814 below CR bottom line price, I know I'm not too far off.

    Dealers are charged advertising fees by the manufacturer on each car. These charges vary from state to state and are not negotiable. They will not be reflected on sites such as carpoint or edmunds. Just an example NC is $115 per car.

    Which dealership are you at?
  • jaxs1jaxs1 Posts: 2,697
    Doesn't matter since every dealer in the region pays the same fee. The dealer selling the car will keep that in mind when they agree on their selling price. It is not as if the dealer across town can undercut him due to lower fees.

    I've received OTD quotes from various dealerships. When I walk in there to purchase, what other options will the dealership typically try to sell me?

    I'm assuming warranty, and various things like floor mats, tints and other accessories.

    I'm assuming that OTD already includes standard manuf. warranty and TTL.
  • rujorujo Posts: 132
    It is if you're firm! Otd includes std. warranty and ttl, and ALL dealer fees. Don't let'em mess with you. You were quoted "otd" - so "out the door" it is.

    I'd hope your dealer would include floor mats at no extra charge. They'll probably try to sell you some kind of "protection package" (door guards, upholstery treatment, etc.) Maybe some kind of "rust proofing" depending upon where you live. If you ever think you might want an extended Honda Care warranty - purchase it online (you can do it anytime within the first 6000 miles) for less than half what your local dealer will try to charge you. Here's a widely recommended source:

    Do you know how much you are paying for the car? You could get 10 OTD prices, pick the cheapest, and still be getting a bad deal. Always get the prices for the car with destination and dealer fee (if any) and compare those. The TTL stuff should be the same from any dealership and something you should know (or learn) how to figure for yourself.

    I'd hope your dealer would include floor mats at no extra charge.

    Floor mats come free with Accords so the previous poster didn't get any deal getting them "thrown in".
