    That price was ABSOLUTELY too high. I got a same silver I4 SE back in April for 18900 plus TTL (6% tax, title/reg work $125), OTD 20,200. If you had done your homework in this forum, you will find you should never pay over 19000 for 07 SE I4. IMO, my 18900 was already too high, someone did 18400 + TTL. BTW, I am in Philly area.
  • If you went in willing to spend 19.5k and thought that was a good price, then enjoy the car and don't look back. to be honest I don't know anything about the SE (I've been concentrating on the EX-L out here), but someone is always going to have a better price quote. the quotes I'm getting out in the midwest can't match the stuff on the coasts, but I'm also not going to buy a car sight unseen/test driven...congrats on the new vehicle and best of luck!

    Internet offer price: 19692
    Out to door price: 22,384/-

    Trade-In: 1998 Camry LE
    initial offer was 2,900... final offer 4,500/-

    With trade-in the final out to door price is 17,884/-

    Is it worth buying this car?

    What is the Online NJ Fee for and who receives it???
  • vrynicevrynice Posts: 22
    Not exactly sure.....First time I ever heard of it...it was included in the break out of the total price from the dealer in the email....I figured i would deal with it when i got there to finalize the deal.

    Hi, no I'm in Massachusetts, south of Boston. I think different areas of the country have different prices. I'd get equotes if I were you and stroke the various dealers and tell them how much you are willing to pay.

    Yes I agree, there must be ppl out there who paid more or less than we did. The most important thing is that we enjoy the car, if extra $x00 can buy us some joy, it's worth it.

    Hi, I'm planning to purchase either an automatic EX I4, SE V6, or LX V6 here in the VA/DC area within the next few days and will be sending out emails to all the local dealers shortly to get quotes.

    I've got my financing already all set up via Costco/Capital One Auto (their blank check's on the way) with a rate even lower than on their website :) but am open to entertain offers from the dealers' financing if they can beat it.

    Some questions:

    - Looking through the figures (invoice pricing) as listed on edmunds.com and other sites, I see some discrepancy. Edmunds.com lists EX I4 or SE V6 invoice at $21,160 and LX V6 at $22,832 but when I check Yahoo! Autos, it shows invoice as $21,043 for EX I4/SE V6 and $22,706. Who is right? Autoweb.com's invoice, for the EX I4, is the same as Yahoo! Autos.

    - I assume that the current marketing support incentives for EX trim levels is actually $1200 and not $750 AND $1200 (for a combined of $1950) even though edmunds.com lists both?

    - For those who are in the metro VA/MD/DC) area, what kind of pricing are you getting for any of the above models? I've browsed through the threads in this forum and I'm seeing other buyers reporting $21,300 for LX V6, $19,675 for EX I4, and $19,738 for SE V6. Are these "reasonable" numbers to start the negotiation from?

    - Comparing between the I4 EX and the SE V6 (both which have the same MSRP), is it better to go with the SE V6 (to gain safety features not found on I4 models like VSC, brake assist, etc.) over the extra amenities that are on the I4 EX? By the same token, would it be worthwhile to move up to the LX V6 (for moonroof, etc.)? What is the threshold $ wise as the determining factor? This is where my dilemma is right now. This car is for my wife who is coming from a '98 Accord LX V6 before it got totaled last week. :cry: She is open to the I4 but at the same time, I think she is used to the V6's characteristics and "feel."

    - "Wood trim" interior; the brochure isn't very clear and neither is Honda's website but can someone clarify that the wood trim interior is only available with the Ivory interior choices?

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    David

    Hi David,
    Good luck with your search. I have a comment on the I4 vs V6. I went from a 2002 V6 to a 2007 I4. I don't notice much of a difference unless I really step on it to pass another car in a short passing zone. I'm past the days of having a "need for speed". The increased mileage with a 4 cyl was attractive as was the much lower insurance cost. I haven't driven it in the winter so don't know how much I'll miss the traction assist. Otherwise I think the I4 will be fine.

    dfwbuyer,
    Congrats for the great deal and thanks for the postings.
    I asked for a quote for Accord EX-L after seeing your post to Freeman Honda, and they quoted me for $23715 (OTD) for it. I told them about you getting a better deal on the car to which they said I need to present them your name and only then they can match me the deal.
    If you don't mind can you please email me your name at my personal email id at rainingindallas@yahoo.com . I would really appreciate if you could.

    Live in NOVA and was quoted $19.3K on a I4 Auto EX. The quote is not bad but the dealer has $399 processing fee. Believe their is still some wiggle room because the dealer quoted the car at $19.1 about two weeks ago.

    Not thrill with the processing fee of $399.
  • smackldogsmackldog Posts: 74
    $399 processing fee? Wow!

    The highest that I've seen so far (again, having just started the process) is $299. Which dealer is this, if you don't mind me asking? I'm assuming there is no way to get that amount waived/reduced unless it's factored into the price of the car itself?

    I've just finished sending online requests for quotes from 14 dealers total tonight in VA and MD and am now sitting back and waiting for the quotes to come in. :)

    I assume that you haven't purchased your I4 Auto EX yet? If you like, we can compare notes throughout the process as I will be purchasing within the week if not sooner. The only unknown variable is will there be a different/better incentives after 7/5?

    Regards,
    David
  • Working backwards from your OTD, the quote breaks down roughly like:

    selling price of Car -> $22,101.68 (roughly $511 over base cost of car)
    taxes -> 1381.36
    inventory tax -> 56.20
    registration - > 127.05
    doc fee -> 50
    23716.29

    Does the car have additional dealer installed accessories?
  • smackldogsmackldog Posts: 74
    KC,

    I assume you bought your I4 recently? If it's an EX, do you mind sharing what you paid for it? I realize there may be regional differences in terms of discounts/pricing, but that would give me a general idea what the baseline figures are to compare with.

    Interesting comment re insurance being cheaper on a 4 cylinder vs 6 cylinder as I wasn't aware it made a difference. How much cheaper was it?

    Regards,
    David

    Msrp 29995

    Dealer quote is 26000 plus 50 doc fee. My state tax is 5% (1302.50) and title/tag transfer is another 50ish. So that would put me 27402.50.

    Draw back being that I dont want the color they have and to get it they want another 300 for the transfer.

    Also I got a quote from another dealer that was 24800 on the same car only they had a 399 processing fee and a 399 destination charge. I have to drive about 3 hours to get that one.

    Are these prices coming in average for folks? Im in the southeast.[/quote]

    FWIW, in southern California, I got an internet quote for $25k including $600 destination charge. That was 2 weeks ago. I bet today - well at least before the 30th, you might find better deals.
