    Can you also send me a copy of your invoice with your personal info marked out. I want the exact model that you purchased that would be a great help. You can sent to gre8tday at gmail

    Hi,
    Could I also trouble you for the name of your dealer and perhaps a good person to deal with. i am also in austin having a hard time getting a deal.

    I's also like a copy of your invoice with the personal iinformation crossed out if you have already scanned one in for someone else so i can use it as a bargaining tool?

    Thanks ,
    Scott

    Thanks smackldog & ddwmew's. I've been unable to deal with local dealers in this soft Louisiana market so after reading your post I sent for quotes from the competative Alexandria,VA.area where I'm told there are 30 dealers in a 30sq. mile area. I've always been suspicious of out of state transactions expecially the $20,300. quote from Landmark but took the risk ($3,100 savings from local quote)and flew in to DC and was met at the airport by the salesman who brought me to the lot where there was a large inventory to choose from. (Yes, I had a backup plan for a car rental if the deal went bad.)There was a $36.unexpected tax thrown in (probably cab fee,no big deal)for a total $20,336.(paid by personal check.) Tax and tag will be paid in my home state. I was so excited to get the deal I forgot about a $200. discount I was promised for a prompt purchase. My bad!
    All in all, the transaction went very well and I will do it again in a competative market such as DC or Los Angeles. Wife and I made a vacation of the trip and toured the area for a couple of days in an effort to break the car in (4mi. on ODO.)before the trip home.
    Thanks again to all who have posted.

    Iamime - thanks for the post. It's not just louisiana dealers, just try colo, $100's over invoice! Of course, who can really blame them, why discount when you don't have to? I see the quotes from faraway dealers and the seemingly unbelieveable prices people like you get from out-of-state dealers and just shake my head. Like you, I am naturally suspicious of the good old bait and switch, but for $2,000-$3,000 in savings, very tempted to take the chance.

    Thanks for sharing the experience - hope others will continue to do the same for the nervous among us.

    Hi,
    I'm not sure about the price, but I can tell you that I am extremely unhappy with this dealer. I purchased a certified 2003 Accord EX-L (24,000 miles)from Main Line Honda in January, 2007 for $16,000. The price appeared to be excellent; significantly below both KBB and Edmund's TMV price. However, the dealer failed to disclose that the car had been involved in a previous accident and had undergone thousands of dollars worth of bodywork. When I brought the car back both the salesman and manager lied about the vehicle. If you have any questions or want more details, feel free to e-mail me at MSReading@yahoo.com(I've filed complaints with the BBB, Angie's List, etc.). Since that time I've had several contacts with another local Honda dealer, Keenan Honda (in Doylestown, PA.). This dealer appears to behave in a much more ethical fashion. I suspect that you will be able to get the car for at least $200-300 less (a previous posting cited $18,588). Good luck!

    I requested quotes from a number of dealers. Only 4 responded. None of the quotes is below what I am getting from carsdirect.com ($18796 + TTL). I asked if they could beat it and only 1 reply asking me to come over. That too not with a concrete offer.

    What the heck is going on here?

    Not much different than here, much depends on the inventory levels, if they have a lot on hand they will be more willing to bargain on prices.

    ALCON:

    Many people on this forum requested an email of the invoice and dealer's name.

    Spoke to the salesman yesterday and the dealership is not interested in selling a group of Accords at that price ... guess it is a money loser.

    However will send out an email (strategy) which may cause a dealer to lower their price.

    Will email the following people:

    gre8tday@gmail.com
    john-r-j@hotmail.com
    rajesh_sabai@yahoo.com
    davosco@aol.com
    jetfish80@gmail.com
    jessylee218@yahoo.com

    This would be my strategy if still in the market?

    $19,700
    +1,182 (6% sales tax)
    + 180 doc fee
    + 15 title fee
    + 98 plate fee

    I have gotten this offer from 2 dealers and a 3rd will match. This is for a 5spd manual car, so I figured it would be about a $500-800 less than an auto. This is within my target range; does that seem okay to other folks?

    Wow, that sounds high! I just paid $24,721 plus TTL and $349 dealer fee for the exact same vehicle in Florida. Make sure you are getting the 4.99% financing on the 60 mths.
