    Selling prices now days is pretty much based on +/ - invoice. MSRP is only useful for calculating leases. There was $1,500 dealer cash available, not sure if it will continue. If it does you should be looking at a price around $1500 below invoice or better.

    I dont't think the incentive is still good. However the end of the month will be here soon enough so I will see if Honda comes up with any new incentives. I looked at a civic a week ago and Honda dealers weren't offering any good deals on them so hopefully it will be different for the accord. I mean you would think that since the 2010 will be out shortly they would be willing to negotiate more.

    Sorry i know this is not dealing with prices guys.

    to frankdux: what exactly are they going to do about the paint chips. Also just to let you know you will be getting a lot of chips which the dealer service manager will tell you they are from road debris/rocks. i just got mine a month ago and it has several rock chips. in hood and side of the car

    i have read many complaints in other forums that due to environmental friendly paint that honda uses paint chipping is more common.

    But the main issue that should worry you: check the paint in this area on both sides of the car : near the front bumper and front side panel close to the headlights. my paint is chipping off (on bumper) in this area on both sides and it is clearly not due to road debris. i took it in to service manager and he agreed that is not normal or cause by me or the environment.
    Service manager solution: they need to repaint the whole front bumper. Wow after only a month with a new car and already getting a paint job. i told him that would lower the value of the car and he said that it would not yeah right it will. i called honda as well and they said they have nothing to do with it BS.

    also in the same general area near the tail lights this has been reported by other people so no its not only me since this has happened to other people in the same area (dont take my word for it do a search).
    guys check this area to see if this is happening to you look in the gap between the front bumper and panel (on the bumper par)t

    about the loaner i think it all depends on the dealership. they offered to give me a loaner and told me that if i get it repainted it would take about 3 days.

    the dealership said they would take it next door to their repair/body shop to get the paint chips fixed. they were being cheap on the loaner car. i purchased the vehicle from them last Monday 6/29 and it already has paint chips. very disappointed in the quality of the paint and their refusal to offer me a loaner when it takes 4 days to re paint the damaged areas.

    which dealership did you purchase from?

    Guys, what are the differences between Lx and Lx-P in Accords? :confuse:
  • action378action378 Posts: 7
    Purchased this car back on 6/13/09 and paid 23,800 including destination fee. I also purchased an 8yr 100,000 ext warranty for 900.00. Buying process was quick and easy.

    By the way, ran across this site a few days ago and there's so much good information.
  • Just an FYI. All dealer incentives have remained the same. However, the dealer cash and special APR, can NOT be combined as of 7/9

    Hi Heather,

    Keep us posted as to what you end up doing. I am currently debating whether I want to try for the EX V6 or the EX-L 4cyl. Assuming the V6 can be had for only a few hundred more than EX-L 4cyl, I think I am inclined to go that route. I prefer the extra power, as well as the slightly better exterior look (IMO of course). However, it appears that not too many people shop for this trim, so I don't know what kind of deals can be had.
  • kingpcgeekkingpcgeek Posts: 985
    How about dealer cash and leasing, can they be combined?
  • carplzcarplz Posts: 8
    So there are still cash incentives? I didn't see any listed for Honda, please explain. Thx
  • player98player98 Posts: 54
    i got it at a houston, texas dealership. i called the sales manager on monday and said he would call me in an hour after he talked to the general manager. guess what i am still wating for his call after 3 days. bad thing you will get more rock chips due to hondas paint and any little thing is prone to give you a chip on the paint. so everyone keep an eye on this maybe you dont believe me right now but you will see once you have you car.
    check the bumper area to make sure it doesnt have the same issue as mine.
    i dont want to get my whole front bumper repainted after only a month of having the car as this will lower the value of the car. this would suck specially when the issue is not normal

    Hello everyone,

    Can you recommend a good dealership in LA county? Which dealers should I stay away from ?

    I'm interested in lease an accord

    thanks!
    josh
  • Talked to our best dealership and they were tracking me down an 09 for 23.7K + shipping. Called them today and Accord prices went up in general and it will be closer to 24.2k, BUT another dealership that's owner is a friend of my previous Realtor talked to them and they decided that because I knew the owner through someone, they would give me a 2010 model, exactly how I want it, for invoice price, plus a 399$ dealership fee, which I plan on arguing since I will get my car serviced there and that's where they make the money anyway.

    I told the 'best' dealership this and the guy laughed and said omg they are soo lying to you, no way in hell you are getting a 2010 at invoice when the 09s are going for just at invoice. No way no way no way, blah blah. I asked if he would take that deal if he could then, and the guy said 100% for sure but he'd get it all in writing cause it's a BS deal.

    Well I go in tomorrow or Saturday to put $500-1000 down and get the brand new 2010 Accord Coupe EX-L at invoice price!!! (when they are released)

    Here is to hoping they don't try to f-me over!

    I just went to the dealership to test drive today. 6cyl feels smoother and quieter to me compare to EX 4cyl. However they asked for 23450 for the EX 6cyl, $200 more than the quoted price, and they don't even have that in stock. They also offered EXL 6cyl at 24800. I walked out
    I'm sticking with 6cyl, but I'll check other dealer, maybe other 6cyl cars, camery or impala.

    looking for an Accord V6 EX-L sedan w/o nav. Saw that Cars Direct is about $25,500 + taxes and fees. Is that a good price? Thanks.
  • player98player98 Posts: 54
    it sucks for most that waited for this month for better incentives. it is still only $1500 but what sucks is that you can no longer combine it with special financing. this will be like this until september. i guess this is when the new 2010 is probably going to start arriving at the dealers.
    i wonder if honda is selling more that other makes since they did not better anything

    i wanted to wait last month when i got mine but i could no longer wait i needed the car. i am glad i bought last month.
  • dave4242dave4242 Posts: 8
    Heather,
    Wouldn't 24,800 be a good price for the V6 EX-L? I found it for $25,437 on Carsdirect.com. If not, what would be a good price for the V6 EX-L?
  • daj3daj3 Posts: 2
    I purchased my Accord just under the wire to get the combined incentive of $1500 and the 3.9% Financing. Seeing the new incentives I'm glad I made my purchase. Based on this, the final purchase price including destination fee was $22,900 for the 2009 Automatic EX-L with no Nav. Can anyone let me know if my neogotations skills paid off or not?

    Thanks

    also wanted to know what's main difference from 09
  • Unfortunately, no one knows yet. Not even dealers have information on it yet. The dealer I am getting my 2010 from said they need to put in their first order by July 17th for the cars, so I am assuming they will know something by then.

    What is known about the 2010s is that there will be no major changes to the exterior and most likely not the interior either. It's still the same 'generation' of Accord, so expect subtle differences.

    The next major change to the Accord is supposedly going to be 2012 which will be the last year the Accord name is used.
  • Hello,

    This is a response to Josh and other folks who want to buy or lease a Honda vehicle. Please read my evaluation of this dealership in West Covina:

    Honda-Norm Reeves Honda Superstore 1840 E Garvey Ave S, West Covina, California 91791-1909.

    It's a newly renovated dealership, has a beautiful showroom--they have great Customer Service!

    I had an excellent experience at this newly renovated dealership Norm Reeves Honda in West Covina on Saturday, July 4, 2009. I bought a 2009 Honda Accord EX model with a moon roof. Through the AAA website, I was contacted by the very nice AAA Rep and was told that I can get the car $350 above invoice price. As an AAA Member, they also gave me a 15% discount on accessories including alarm/security system

    They gave me a fantastic deal: I talked with Joey, Salesman. I mentioned to him what I was able to afford. He checked his computer and said it was okay.

    I recommend this dealership because they are trustworthy. They were very good in customer service especially Joey and Lance. They will take care of you and help you. I bought this car for $24,000 out-the-door which included tax and license. I am totally satisfied and happy.
  • I think you did. On 7/4/09 I bought a 2009 Honda Accord EX model, and I paid $24,000 includ. Tax and License.

    Check http://www.realcartips.com/2009-Honda-Accord-Prices
    According to that site, $24200 would be a great price for V6 EX-L. 24800 wasn't bad but not enough to get me go over budget

    heather23 the website you provided is the worst website there is. edmunds (forums) and any other wibsite are much more reliable than realcartips.com.
    although i have not recently looked at that particular website, a month ago when i was purchasing my car many msrps were not correct.
    you need more infomation to determine whether a deal is good or not. remember not all states have the same fees or taxes. i know in some states doc fees can be more than $400 while in my state they usually charge $50. other states pay less taxes i pay 6.25%.
    remember not all markets are the same so while there are some dealers out there in some parts that are willling to sell at incredible prices, dealers in other places will not be as willing. Houston for instance is a hard place to get those amazing deals that a couple of people have been able to get and this is a big city.
    Also the marketing support that dealers get does NOT have to be passed on to you. is not a rebate like the other makes have this is why it is not advertised. see if some without any knowledge of this marketing support goes into the dealer and gets offered $500 below invoice most likely they will be happy so the dealer only used a portion of this support and still gets to keep the rest. although most dealers are willing to give you the whole $1500 marketing suppport they do nto have to.

    so if you can get at least $1500 below invoice. you are getting a good deal.
    remember it is only a small percentage of people that actually read this forums so getting $1500 below invoice you are doing much better than the rest of the general public.

    again i would not trust that website

    maybelline6:
    That dealer may have been nice to you, but you overpaid unless Accords are in short supply in your area. Most people visiting this site recently have been paying below invoice on Accords. The average price nationally also has been below invoice for the past month. This is the best website to understand prices nationally and in your area:
