2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • player98player98 Posts: 54

    take a couple of things into acount. here in houston the doc fee is only $50 not $250. you cannot negotiate TTL so that is set. so carshopping09 while it is true that some people have lower OTD prices that is because their tax is different as you might know. so in a way you can say this person paid $22722 if you take out $50 from $250 to make it the same doc fee as in houston. i think you might be able to knock it down a bit but from experience i can tell you that houston dealers are the worst in giving out those amazing deals you see in this post and in others (at least this was the case back in june when i got mine).
    they might be willing to give you a similar price but i dont know if you know that most dealers except one or two in houston area have dealer options on their cars so they will either try to charge you the whole thing or charge you a "reduced" price for the options.
    i am not sure if you want a coupe or sedan. i think they will be more likely to lower the price more if it is a sedan more than a coupe.

    not sure why it is so hard in houston to get the best deals as we are a big city with lots of possible business. you might be able to get those other deals once the 2010 comes out but you might not get the color comb you might want if you are fine with color then i say wait.
    one advice of where not to buy. goodson stay the he** away from both of their locations. if you want i can give you more advice of who to buy from email me at if you want any more help form a local.

    I've been looking at the same car for my wife with no money down rolling tax's and fees in I was getting quotes of 299.00. due at signing about 500
  • That's exactly what I want to pay a I guess I need to do some more negotiating.
  • Hey player98 thanks for the advice. I am looking to get the sedan. Interesting that you mention father had a HORRIBLE experience with them years ago. I guess some things never change.

    Hi all,
    I got a quota for LX from a dealer:



    Is it a good deal?
  • hasanas,

    Where did you buy your car at? What was the doc fees?

  • jason50jason50 Posts: 55
    that appears to be a very good deal. i say appear since you need to get the final OTD price. i just hope they're not using that quote to get you in their dealership and then ask you to add extended warranty, rust, etc. your quote sounds like it is from gillman honda southwest.
  • jason50jason50 Posts: 55
    i think the reason you can't get alot of great deals in houston is because the city has experienced a population boom. many people from all over the country are moving here, especially california. as a result, the demand for goods and services has grown tremendously over the past few years in houston. the dealers know that if you won't buy at the prevailing 'market' price, someone else will. i think the same is happening in the housing market here, but that is another different topic.

    unlike most of the country, the economy hasn't hit hard least not yet. oil and energy define this city and it is still very healthy even with drop in oil prices. i am starting to see layoffs though. anyways, just my 2cents.
  • looks like the dealerships are "maximizing" their profits in this second go round of C4C

    can anyone in Northern Ca give me an idea what the supply is like out there when you visit the dealerships?

    i think this will get better near the end of the month, heck the Accord did not even crack the top 10 in most bought vehicles when using C4C (but the Camry, corolla and Civic did).

    is this early month posturing i am seeing?
    will prices come back to reality closer to the end of the month??
  • I am looking at getting either the 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid with navigation and leather for $23,990.00 But I do have a great offer for a 2009 Accord 4/dr sedan V6 EX-L with Navigation for $27,029.00 + TTL I like both cars but having a hard time deciding. The accord gets 30 MPG but the Civic Hybrid gets nearly 50. But, the resale on the accord is better then the Civic.

    I am buying this coming Tuesday 11th of August! One or the other any help on this would help!

    Hi, I am in the mkt for an EX-V6 or EX-L V6. Quotes I am getting (not including dest fee, tax, etc.) are about 21700 for an EX-V6, 23500 for the EX-L (no Nav) in the Chicago area. How do these compare with other experiences? Also, are the bad reviews on the seat specific to the leather ones or the cloth ones as well?
  • That is probably the lowest I have heard for a V-6 EX-L. I am also in Chicago area and looking to buy one. Would you please share the dealership info or PM me with the info. Maybe we can buy together and get a better discount possibly.
  • roy2001roy2001 Posts: 62
    $23500 is for EX-L i4 or V6? If it is V6, then that is $3000 below invoice.
  • th83th83 Posts: 164
    He also said those prices were without the destination charge. With the destination fee, those prices go up to $22,410 for the EX V6 and $24,210 for the EX-L V6. Still great prices, though.
  • arun77arun77 Posts: 4
    Both were 6 cyl engines; I didn't do anything beyond simply asking for a quotation from 2-3 places.

    The accord gets 30 MPG but the Civic Hybrid gets nearly 50.

    Where did you see that you can get 30 MPG on the V6 Accord?

    Accord V6-(City/Highway/Combined)-19/29/22----271HP
    Accord I4-(City/Highway/Combined)-21/30/24---177HP
    Civic CVT-(City/Highway/Combined)-40/45/42----110HP
  • Sorry, 29 MPG now can you help?
  • dominaldominal Posts: 6
    would u like to share which dealership gave u those quotes?
  • gooddeal2gooddeal2 Posts: 749
    Sorry, 29 MPG now can you help?

    I pointed out the MPG b/c you mentioned it in your post. I don't think you can just compare the highway mileage alone. You need to look at the average which is 22MPG for the Accord and 42MPG for the Civic unless you only drive on the highway. If you can live w/ 110HP in the Civic, you shouldn't have a problem w/ the 177HP in the I4 Accord b/c you can save some money plus get a couple extra MPG.

    Personally, I wouldn't get a Civic b/c it's a car for kids, majority of kids drive Civic. Also, if you plan to have a family or kids...the Civic is too small.

    I cannot say anything about resale value b/c I don't drive any Hondas.

    I paid 22386 for the car + 1567 (tax) + 100 (DMV) + 175 (Doc fees)...also get 3500 off for the CLunker. Went to Willis Honda in Burlington, NJ.

    Got the car with mud guards, wheel locks, auto starter, all season floor mats all thrown into the deal.
  • I just bought a new Accord LX from a dealership in Georgia. The deal agreed upon was 20,300 Out of Door with a trade in of an old Buick. When I reviewed the documents after I got home, I found I was charged $600 more than the agreed amount. The finance staff did not go through the numbers with me, but just asked me to sign all the documents. I had trusted her and had not thought she would change the price.

    This was my firt time buying a new car, and I was very new to this business. Though I have been reading the posts here, but have never read such tricks dealer have played.

    Now the question is, what could I do to get the money back? This experience with this dealership really made me sick. I am in despair now and could not think of any ideas. Your oppinions are greatly appreciated!
  • Do you have anything in writing with the lower price? If not, it is just your word against his.
  • I went to the dealership just now and the problem was fixed. Feel so grateful to this forum after seaching a long time here. From this buying experience, I realized the auto dealing business is so tricky and customers are usually under a disadvantage if they are not familiar with this business. Consumers have to be united to get their fair deals.

    Good luck, everyone!

    What is an "auto starter"? do you mean - remote start? Who did you deal with at Willis.. I am looking to get the same car. Thanks.
  • hasanashasanas Posts: 19
    Yes, remote starter. Since we can't post actual names, send me an email and I'll give you the name.
  • inet123inet123 Posts: 11
    Email sent. Thanks in advance.
  • roy2001roy2001 Posts: 62
    That is barely $900 below invoice, correct me if I am wrong.
