    Here in Oregon we have no Sales Tax, and we had a set of personalized lic. plates that we had to pay $50 to transfer to this vehicle. So to be totally accurate, our price for vehicle and lic. plate transfer was $29,050. If we were purchasing, that is what our OTD price would have been. That is also the price that the Lease is based on. They gave us an initial price quote for the vehicle that was $29,977. Since I had a price quote from another Dealer of $29,000, they matched that price. We lowered our Lease's monthly payment by a fair amount which all helps. We put the minimum $$ down to initiate the Lease from Honda Finance, and we ended up adding the routine Service Work into the monthly payment, ending at $362/mo.
    We are very happy with the deal we made, and especially with the vehicle. :D
  • I think we paid $21,380. After TTL+doc fee it was $23,800. CA TAX was what soured the deal.

  • I live in Jersey as well. I've been negotiating for a 4 w/ NAV and best I've got right now is $380 per month. Is the lease you got quoted on for the 6 w/ NAV 36 months? If so, you've got a much better quote for sure. At that number I'd go with the 6 w/ NAV as well. What is the name of the dealer you went to? I'll call them.

    Hi, we're just outside Boston, negotiating with several dealers on the 3 remaining 2009 Accord EX auto sedans in the area. Based on earlier posts, and given that it's now already mid-January 2010, we are hoping to get $20,500 OTD. Is that a reasonable goal?

    p.s. Thanks to everyone who helps build this amazing community. What a great resource!

    Yes the vehicle we ended up with is the Accord 4dr SDN, EX-L V-6 w/navi. The vehicle has mud flaps and pin striping, which was included in our negotiated pre-lease price of $29,000. We put $2700 down, minimum to initiate lease through Honda, and ended at a monthly payment of $350. We added the vehicle service plan to the Lease, for our final monthly payment of $362. Our Lease is 36 months and based on 12,000 per year (36,000 miles total). We will not go over our mileage as we usually don't go over 10,000 per year.
    The service plan covers all regular service for the entire Lease period. We will not have any additional out of pocket expenses for the entire 3 years. :)

    Is your Lease quote for 12,000 miles/year or 15,000 miles/year?
  • louisnlouisn Posts: 110
    That $12 a month for a service contract turns out to over $400 for the lease period . Based on your mileage, you may have to do 6 oil changes and 3 tire rotations. My dealer charges about $35.That can't be much more than $200 over the 3 years. That's my experience anyway. My only "major" expense has been the $50 brake fluid change after 3 years.

    From which Honda dealer you have bought this vehicle. I am looking for same model.
  • bearcrkrdbearcrkrd Posts: 167
    I live in the Seattle area. If you want an oil change with Castrol Syntec Blend (partial synthetic), which is very popular in this area with Honda and Toyota, it is more than $35. Add a tire rotation and it's $50 minimum. Brake fluid change, and Power Steering, auto tranny drain and fill are $50 - $99+. Air Cleaner is $25 and Cabin Air Filter is $75? at dealer. Honda is more expensive than Toyota, just my opinion. Have purchased 5 Toyotas and 1 Honda since Summer 2000 in this area. Hope the Oregon couple continue to enjoy their new honda for the duration, and thanks for sharing your story.

    Thanks for your post, those are the approx.numbers that are more in line to what we figured. Our $12/mo computes to $432 over the 36 month Lease. We plan on using synthetic oil or a blend, along with the other services you mentioned, we felt it was worth the extra $12/mo. If for no other reason than the convienience of no further dollars spent over and above the actual monthly payment. It may not be an something that others would have done, but it works for us.
  • I'm in the Annapolis, MD area and just purchased a 2010 accord coupe ex-l 4cyl black on black for $26,121 out the door. The dealership didn't have the color we wanted, so they got the car from another dealership the next day. Salesman was nice, however the finance guy was a bit pushy. Keep on wanting to push extras like Lo-Jack, acid rain protection, and extra warranties down our throats. We didn't budge. Would've made the car payments an extra $100/month! Finance guy had a folder which had previous car repair bills on the honda accord to try to scare you into buying the extra warranties. Some of these guys will try to make friends and conversation with you to make you feel bad to reject them. But when they ask you to buy more useless protection crap, its your money and just tell them no.
  • I'd expect you'd be hard pressed to get that deal. Assuming Edmunds/NADA/KBB invoice price is correct... the dealer paid $22,128 for the car... plus another $710 for the destination charge. Assuming the dealer did not insall any dealer options and the $1500 manufacture to dealer rebate is in play, you're now down to $21,338. I understand Honda pays 2% to the dealer as "holdback". Assuming the dealer gave all that over to you, that's another reduction of another $442 making it $20,896... with the dealer theoretically making no money on the deal. You'd have to add any local taxes and DMV fees to that. Your price has them eating another $396+tax+DMV fees. Unless they have been sitting on it for a very long time (paying interest on their loan) and very motivated, I don't see how they take that deal... just my take. Good luck though... I hope you can make it happen. Let us know.
  • I just got a quote for 2010 Honda Accord LX sedan auto OTD 21K,
    tax 8.75%, is this a good deal ?
    thanks

    I got the lowest OTD quote for 2010 4-dr sedan V6 EXL auto no navi for $29119. Is this a good price? I live in San Jose, Ca.

  • I would think thats just a average good price... Not a great price.. considering I just got a 4cyl ex-l out the door for 26121, I would think you should get it for closer to 28,000.
  • louisnlouisn Posts: 110
    BUT, for the 3 year lease, you would not need to change the air filter or cabin filter or do any fluid changes and using a syn oil is overkill if you only keep the car for 3 years or 30000 miles. BTW, the dealer would probably charge extra for the syn oil blend under that type contract anyway. Just saying...He bought a great car .just a difference of opinion.
  • Put deposit on this car paid $25885 (this price includes the $710 Honda Delivery charge) and 3.99% interest rate... going to pick up on Tuesday... I think I did well for this car at this price... any comments? or did I get ripped off? so far what I see on here it is a GREAT deal.. I need to pay NJ taxes and MV Fees but the price I quoted above is for car and delivery.

    Comment as soon as you can so I feel good picking it up in a few days!
    Bought at Hamilton Honda (Great experience so far... will keep you posted on how delivery and paperwork go)
  • We just paid $24950 out the door for a white 2010 Accord sedan EX-L 4cyl in Dayton, Ohio. We could have done the LX-P for $19700 before taxes/fees, but decided to go with the extras on the EX-L.
  • can I ask which dealership in Dayton. I also reside in the Dayton Area. Also, your OTD price includes taxes and fees?

    Thanks
  • I have a standing quote right now for a 10 Accord EXL V6 coupe, auto, no Nav, of $26023.00. Honda is offering GREAT incentives to the dealer and dont forget to have them back off the dealer holdback which is substantial. Car MSRP is $30015.00. Am trying to sell my car cuz the trade offer is a low ball!
  • The OTD price includes taxes and fees -- it was $23175 before taxes and fees. It was at Matt Castrucci Honda across the street from the Dayton Mall. It was a good experience. FYI, we didn't have a trade and took care of our own financing.

    You would drive a brand new car off the lot, then not change the engine air fiter or cabin air filter during the first three years? It's every 15,000 miles for both. They both need it, too. I just changed both in my '08 Civic, they had 14,500 or just under. Haven't even driven on a dirt driveway, and I was suprised at the dirt in the Cabin filter, which I thought would be like new. Dealers swear you need to change tranny fluid every 15,000. Don't know if that is covered under maint plan that started this exchange. I think 30,000 will do. Had my tranny fluid drain/fill done at 15,000 and 30,000. Just hit 45,000 and changed the two above mentioned filters myself, and got an oil change. The rest can wait until 60,000 mi service. I'm scared to find out how much the Dealers or high-end local shops want to adjust the valves, as I'd like to have it done for peace of mind in case my financial situation takes a nose dive, as it may. :( The reason I'm sniffin around Accord Forum is because the "upgrade" kicking around in the back of my head (if I don't join the unemployed) is the Accord coupe. Can't find any current posts on it, so looked around under this thread.
    Sometimes a new buyer will post, and you can feel their excitement and joy shining through the post. Then someone rains on their parade ( I'm not perfect),which is why I responded to you. There is a difference between asking for help (opinions), and sharing what is already done.

    Agree that bothe engine & cabin filters need replacing every year or so, regardless of miles driven. It is amazing how dirty they get.

    Re: transmission fuild changes. Given the magnitude of transmission problems Honda has been having across their product lines (e.g. Accord, Odyssey, Ridgeline, etc.), the dealers are probably paranoid and manic about fluid changes, and rightfully so it seems. I would really hate to have my transmission fail a month or so after the warranty expires.
  • I was just informed that Honda is matching or doubling their 2009 or 2010 Accord/Civic rebates to all current Honda owners.

    I believe 2009 Accord EX (if you can find one) has a $1500 rebate. If you own a Honda vehicle, they will give you another $1500.

    Honda will give you $1800 ($900+$900) rebate for Accord LX-P.

    This extra rebate supposedly end on Jan 30, 2009.

    Not sure if this is national or regional (Edmunds or TrueCar do not have this info) but I live in the NY/NJ area.

    I negotiated for an in-stock Accord LXP for $450 under (Edmund's) invoice $, PLUS $1800 in rebates.

    God luck!
  • i did hear the similar news about double rebate from dealer. can you break down the price of your purchase. I assume you bought 2010 sedan lx-p auto accord.
    also let me know the dealer name and location.
    thanks
  • "Re: transmission fuild changes. Given the magnitude of transmission problems Honda has been having across their product lines (e.g. Accord, Odyssey, Ridgeline, etc.), the dealers are probably paranoid and manic about fluid changes, and rightfully so it seems"

    I can't get the local Honda dealer to do a transmission flush! They say Honda doesn't recommend it!
  • Didn't quite pull the trigger yet as I am deciding between Honda Accord and Subaru Forester.

    Stock 2010 Accord LX-P with auto

    MSRP: $23,565 ($22855+$710 destination)
    Invoice: $21,437
    Discount: -$500

    Net: $20,937

    Rebate 1: -$900
    Rebate 2: -$900

    Total: $19137 + TTL

    If you want the contact info, please pm or email me

    By the way, if you are in NJ/NY/PA area, there are bunch of auto shows this weekend.

    (full disclosure: I am in no way related to this particular dealership, both professionally or personally. I will not personally benefit from your purchase in anyway)

    AllThumbs,

    So if I am looking for a 2010 Accord EXL (4 or 6 cyl) you are telling me my rebate will be $1500 + $1500 = $3,000.

    This is for a 2010? Where do I get this info from - I am in Philly and my guess is if this is available, the dealers will all play dum
    b.

    Is this only for purchase deals or can I lease?

    Where did you find out about this from?

    Thanks,
  • albert72-

    according to edmunds, for 2010 accord ex-l, there is $900 rebate. so yes, if you have an existing honda (must provide registration and insurance as proof), you should be able to receive another $900

    i believe there is a $1500 rebate for 2009 accords and civics.

    "double" rebate is apparently only valid on 2009/2010 accords and civics and you do not have to trade in your old honda vehicle to qualify.

    i have not checked any pennsylvania honda dealers, but honda's own wording says "...rebate varies by participating dealer...".

    not sure about the lease though....

    i received this info from couple of NY/NJ dealers and confirmed it with a general sales manager from a local honda dealer.
