2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • laxvenkatlaxvenkat Posts: 2
    Hi guys,

    After much research on this forum and a lot of email haggling with dealers in the Bay Area I finally I bought an Accord EX-L on July 3rd from Livermore Honda for $22,400 +tax & registration. The experience with them was pleasant. Previously, the best quote I had got was $22,700 from a couple of dealers - Dublin Honda and Hayward Honda. However Livermore enticed me with a better offer. I thought the price was fairly decent.

    Now, I realize that I could have possibly got a beetr deal from Tracy Honda (20 miles east of Livermore) - Same price on car + $500 gift card from the city of Tracy. apparantly the city of Tracy are running a promotion to incentivise businesses in Tracy.

    Has any one bought from Tracy and got the gift card? Also, what do you guys think about the price I paid.

    Hi All,

    I am looking for new Accord 09, EX-L. This is the first time I am buying a car.

    So far I have a quote of 22,600 including destination and a 24,830 drive out price. Do you think this is a good price?

    How much lower can I make my offer since this is the quote I got from them over the phone/email?

    Also, which delaer would you recommend based on your experience?

  • This is in response to all those asking about good dealers in Atlanta. I dealt with them all and Hennessy Honda was the best by far. Its where I bought my EX from. I recommend going through the Costco car buying program if you have a membership with them. Hennessy is the only dealer in the area that is in the program. Good luck.

    IMHO the Costco program is worthless nowadays. Back in the day when dealers could get close to sticker for a car it was a good deal. Now you can get better deals by shopping all dealers then through the official Costco dealer.

    Ditto the worthless Costco it is simply not competitive
  • Hello ~
    We are having a conference at our home related to these two vehicles...the dealership --two separate sales folks ---are pretty --hohum about the EX-L NAV/RES
    are we missing something ? Is there a better incentive for them to sell the EX-L -without the NAV/RES? -Or- are they too practical and think those two add -ons are just too pricey ? Which certainly seems that they are ----we would really like the NAV --love the screen ---however ---that isn't possible without the RES ....??
    Your thoughts??? Anyone??

    Hi odugs,
    I emailed one more dealer in silver spring MD and it turned out to be fortunate for me. I got a quote of $19600 OTD for a LX from internet salesman. I went to their dealership yesterday and negotiated with the manager and was able to knock down another $400 so my final is $19200 OTD with 2.9% APR for 36 months. The dealer there was really nice and professional, no hidden charges, no tricks and games. The whole buying exprience was very pleasant.
    My conclusion is you have to find the right dealership, maybe at the right time, in order to get a good deal. All the other dealerships gave much higher bottomline-price, around $20000 OTD. So its really important that you find a right dealership.

    Does anyone have any experience with purchasing the 09 Accord LX with auto in Jacksonville, FL area? I got a quote from one dealer for $18,500 plus tax and fees. Is that a good price? I was also thinking about the 2010 Camry and Hyundai Sonata. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Any of guys know the new honda rebates from 07/07/2009? and the finance rates. Honda sales are down by 34 % for the month of june and i dont see any rebates and finance details any where. Did they took out if so i will go with a toyota which 2000 bucks on some cars.
  • The reason none are listed is because their current offer just expired (7/6/09). I am assuming they will post new offers soon... that's basically the only reason I am waiting to buy mine - to see what offers they are going to have.

    If anyone knows, please enlighten us! But yeah, that's the reason there are none, they are probably making up new offers.
  • gmcgrathgmcgrath Posts: 7
    I came to know they will out on Thursday. have to wait till Thursday.

    I just bought a 2009 Accord EX-L last night for 24,800 out the door including the 1500 marketing incentive and financed at the 3.9% rate. It was a nightmare. Settled on a price over the internet and then when I got in the door they tried their best to bait and switch, etc. Bottom line, I will NEVER again do business at that particular dealer in Phoenix, AZ. It took them 41/2 hours to complete the deal even though we had an agreement before I even walked through the door. Homework on Edmunds sure pays off!!!

    What went wrong? Did the internet quote provide you with " Out of the door" price?
    Could you please break down your price like base price +tax+dealer fee? I'm looking to buy one too.
  • gmcgrathgmcgrath Posts: 7
    Give a bad review online for the dealer that will at least help people buying.
  • Well Im not sure whether its worth it or not. Bottom line, I got the 09 EX, with mudguards and floormats for $21,800 OTD. I also got the 3.9% for 60 months.

    The internet price was an exact price of $24,800 out the door, everything included. I mentioned that "I had a neighbor who was in the market for a new car also and depending on the deal I got and the experience, I would be more than willing to recommend their dealership." That's it, no other mention of my neighbor. Well, when I got there they told me the price was only good if my neighbor and I were both buying a car that day and that they could give my neighbor the same deal. The problem was that I never said anything about my neighbor being ready to buy a car that day or even if they'd made up their mind as to what car they were thinking of. It was all just the expected car salesman get you in the door and then change the story. They gave me the "we're losing 2,000 on this deal, we just can't take that big of a hit, etc.... I did bring in a file folder with all the print outs of what Edmunds listed the car for, TMV, etc. as well as all my emails back and forth with the fleet department. So, it was all in writing!! These guys were all so totally dishonest and scammers it wasn't funny. These are the kind of guys that give car salesmen a bad name. They were totally unethical. Then the finance guy tried to talk me into all the extended warranty stuff - his selling point..... that I'd saved so much on the deal that I was CRAZY not to buy the extended warranty. Little did he know that I was so furious about the way they were doing business I was not about to spend one more dime at their dealership!! Here's the breakdown if it helps...
    base plus accessories (including body side molding, splash guards and a preinstalled package they already had added( window tinting, trunk tray, pin striping, and a bunch of other little stuff) 22,058
    tax 1,831
    registration, lic., tire disp. fee, postage 516
    doc fee 395
    total OTD 24,800

    Hope this helps!!

    I received an email from a dealer today that they were extending the offer for a few more days. Maybe you should check with individual dealers in your area.
  • carnut93carnut93 Posts: 6
    Wow, that was fast! Have you had experience with that dealer?

    Last year when I was shopping I contacted all of the valley Honda dealers. The guy from Showcase was so cocky, acting like he was doing me a favor by selling me a car, so I had a feeling it was them. If I were to get a Honda I would probably go through Superstition Springs. I had a great deal worked out with them for a V6 Coupe, but decided to spend the extra $50 a month and get another G35.

  • Anyone have any experiences with the Colorado dealerships? I am hoping to buy my car in two weeks or so, just waiting to see if they will have better APR specials this thursday, then getting pre-approved for a loan and going to try to have 10 dealers in the area bid me their lowest price. Would love any feedback!

    I've had a good previous experience with Tempe Honda and my father had a very good experience with Santan Honda/Honda of Mesa. His experience was very good, no hassles, very professional - this was a few years back.

  • I am way too pick unfortunately and am set on getting the coupe, EX-L in Blue and Manual Transmission and an I4 engine. There are no cars like that in my state, nor in the district. The dealer I spoke with said they are willing to put in an order for a 2010 Accord Coupe EX-L Blue with Manual trans and give it to me at invoice price (he thought roughly 24,500). He said there is a 399 dealer fee and then reg, lic. and all that on top though.

    Is that a good deal? I am having him give me another quote on what it would cost to get the 2009 blue manual EX-L ordered from another state, which would include another destination fee, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet on that...
  • Can you break down the prices??? I assume $21,800 includes the sales tax???

    I got a few internet quotes for Accord-09 EX 6cyl. The lowest among them is 23050, including destination. Is this a decent price? I saw lots of discussion about EX 4cyl and EX-L 4cyl in this thread but didn't find much information about EX 6cyl

    Purchased for $24,636 +TTL = $27,232.21

    The Good
    Sales staff was great, Richard Baril JR is the man. Price was fair enough, not the best deal i've seen on these forums, no pressure and mostly pain free buying experience.

    The Bad
    When vehicle was washed/delivered there were 2 paint chips the size of the tip on a ball point pen. It was noted and the sales staff said to bring it in any time for repair. When I brought it in the following week for repair they said it'll be taken care of and gave me a ride home. I call them later that day to get an estimate time of repair and was told 4 business days. When I asked why so long they said its just proper procedure to ensure the quality of repair - ok fine.

    When I asked them for a loaner vehicle or paying for a rental car since I'm out of a car for 4 days (I need to work to pay off this vehicle I just purchased) they gave me the brush off. Escalated to a manager same response - sorry we can't help you. Now I'm forced to pay out of pocket for a rental car due to their mistake. Had I known this is the way they treat their new customers I would have gone anywhere else to buy a Honda.

    You may get a great price at Hardin, but make sure the vehicle is flawless or else you'll be out of a vehicle for almost a week. Good luck future Honda owners.

    EX V6 MSRP is $200 more than EX-L I4 auto and $2,000 less than EX-L V6, so that should be your guideline. If somebody got $24,500 (in your region!) for EX-L V6, you should try EX V6 for $22,500.

    However, stock of EX V6 is limited when compared to other models, so you might not get as good deal as you could with other two mentioned models.

    Hello all, I am looking to purchase a 2009 Accord LX. I live in the tri-state area and was wondering if anyone had any positive experiences with a dealership in New Jersey. Does anyone know how much I can realistically get off the MSRP and when the best time I should buy? I know that the 2009 model year is coming to an end so there must be some good deals somewhere, at least I hope... Thx to all who reply.
