    Hi everyone,

    I qualify for AHFC's Super-Preferred credit tier. What kind of money factor should I expect from the dealer?

    I know they can manipulate it to make a greater profit so I'd like to go in with a "ballpark" number tomorrow.

    So far, I've been able to negotiate the cap cost down to $20,899 on the EX Coupe Automatic. Is this a good deal?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    first off, your leasing... bad, move no matter what, and no one can convince me on paper different.

    Do the lease math, figure the cost (payment amount X number of months plus residual) never as good as financing. never. Figure finance cost, yes payments are higher, but "residual" (amount of time you want to keep your car, balance on loan) is always lower.

    If you can convince me to lease... (I and others call it a "Fleece") I'll buy 5 cars on the same day!

    Negotiate your best price, cash, out the door, and then deal with financing.
    Use an amortization calculator like this one...

    What's the lowest prices before TTL folks are paying for this car? I live in North Carolina. Interest in lowest prices in this state - as well as nationally. Thanks!

    Was this an EX 4 cyl cloth? What was the price before TTL? What state?

    I bought a 2010 EX sedan for $21,145 before TTL. Traded in a 2005 Accord LX with 119,000 and got $6,800 (condition very good) I shopped for a month and this is the best deal I saw by about $800. Spoke to six different dealers. This is SE PA.

    I am trading a 2005 LX w/ 119,000. during the course of ownership I have replaced tires twice and brakes twice. about 1 month ago I replaced an oil switch, $3.00 part, $200 installation. That's it, a bullet proof car. The dealer is giving me $6,800 in trade on a 2010 EX which I am buying because of the incredible reliability of the 2005. If I sold it privately, I would feel very comfortable someone got a safe, reliable car that will last another 100,000 to 150,000 miles. ~ Good luck, I think it is a good choice.

    you just gotta add your states sales tax rate and then documentation fees and registration and plates fees.(if you have old plates and transfer them its cheaper then new plates so this plays into your Out the door final price make sure you clear that up) you need to find out this from the dealer because they could give you a low price and highball you on the other fees so find out these fees first. Also ask them if there any other fees involved some dealers add on things u dont really need.
    I usually just call and if the dealer insists on you comming in in order to know the fees then I figure somethings up. I went in once to a dealer that wouldn't disclose his fees and I was in for a totally different ride so I learned my lesson.
  • fuelcellguyfuelcellguy Posts: 20
    where did you get these prices from? I got these same exact prices in an email from a dealer in PA, I live in upstate NY. However, when I went to a local dealer, they said there was no way they could match these prices as they were too far below invoice. They highly doubted that these prices could be real.
  • fnc119fnc119 Posts: 12
    Taxes, 6% tags standard PA charge and fees: $5.00 for the notary (I normally pay my secretary $10.00)Everything is standard in the area. Nothing funny at all. Only the second time I felt this way when buying a car.
  • fnc119fnc119 Posts: 12
    Scott Honda, West Chester, PA. Salesman is Bernie Hughes, decent guy, no bs. Second time I am dealing with him. I had to walk away from a deal last year when my wife decided she wanted a Soob instead of a Honda which she now regrets. I jumped on this deal and I am picking it up tomorrow night. I can send you the write up in a couple of days, if you want it let me know.
  • fnc119fnc119 Posts: 12
    Thanks. Appreciate your time and effort. I will keep you posted on the EX, I am picking it up tomorrow night.

    of course the dealer would tell u that. I'm from ny also. I'm going to pick up an accord sedan on weds v6-L. OTD $27700. Always ask for OTD pricing and say you want to write a bank check what dealership should u make it out to and how much.

    You should be able to get pretty close to those prices listed by 'deadsigns' even in NY. I just checked out prices in zipcode 12116 on www.truecar.com/Honda/Accord/EX, and I get prices near those listed. If you click on the show best price tab, you will see the lowest no-haggle list prices offered by dealers in the local area. Now this is for the 12116 zipcode, so I don't know if that is close to where you live. You could certainly plug in your own zipcode though and see what dealer prices show up. Anyway, for the other Accord models that deadsigns posted, I see similar prices being offered... all thousands of dollars below invoice. Check it out if you have a chance. Hope this helps!
  • fuelcellguyfuelcellguy Posts: 20
    thanks - checked it out and the best local prices shown are about what I have already been quoted ($19400) in zip 14611. I then check the best price of $18242 and it shows its like 150 miles away. I am not really sure what to do as the dealerships locally will not match the price, but I also do not have the time to go that far to check out the car.

    just also wanted to mention that the 1200 off or 0.9% financing ends this month for accords. so thats what brings down the price also. call them out on the dealer incentives. if you are financing with 0.9% then they won't give you the 1200 off so that may be the difference of 19k to 18k.

    Selling price would be $20,633 (which includes destination), tax is $630.96, new tag and title fees are $74 and DOC fee is $399 which totals $21,736.96 (including wheel locks, pin stripe, door edge guards, and splash guards (mud guards).

    They're (obviously) not offering any Honda 0.9% financing at this price.

    Is this a good deal or should I expect better than this? I live in North Carolina. Thanks!
  • joer2001joer2001 Posts: 32
    Good price, but I bet if you said... "OK make it 21,500. out the door", they would! I bet they might even do 21,200.00, there are an awful lot of these available. Not sure where you are in North Carolina, but if Myrtle beach is not to far, East Coast Honda was extremely competitive, and was going to earn our business earlier this year on an LX, but my wife chose a different car entirely. (used saturn vue)

    Good luck!

    I'm in Raleigh, NC. Myrtle Beach is pretty far from here...

    Has anyone paid 21,200 to 21,500 OTD price range for this car?
  • Hi,

    Not sure if we're going to pull the trigger on one of these. But, thought I'd share the effort made on 2010 Accord EX-L Navi-V6 sedan pricing in central NC. I used that overstock site that someone suggested earlier as a starting point to work downwards.

    Got 6 quotes within a few hundred dollars of each other on the vehicle. These are out the door pricing (OTD). Five dealerships are in North Carolina, one out of state at $700 lower than everyone else.

    $28,533.32
    $27,368.39
    $28,263.46 (includes mud guards, wheel locks, trunk protector)
    $28,002.87
    $28,178.50
    $28,126.47 (includes 3 free oil changes and tire rotations)

    One that sticks out ($27,368.39) is a dealer in Virginia that is about 4 hours away from me.

    To get back to vehicle cost, example 1 above: $28,126.47 - $398 (doc fee) - $74.00 (plates), divide by 1.03 (3% NC sales tax) to arrive at $26,848.00 as a sales price.

    Still working on specifics of trade through CarMax who seems to be giving the best trade in value for my vehicle. Trying to wrap this up by the weekend. E-mailing these guys seems to be the way to go. All research and pricing done within 3-4 days on all of these.

    Good Luck.

    yes, bargain hard but use website of kelly blue book price guide and know what is trade in value plus few hundred. Honda dealers will throw in extended warranty such as powertrain covered for 100k and 12k for bumper to bumper- 4 cylinder is safe bet!

    2010 EX Coupe, Belize Blue, 5SP Man, Black cloth interior, no options (buying wheel locks, etc. after online) Selling price was $21,298.00, Dox charges $299, CT registration (new plates) $165.00. Bought in Connecticut

    good job in doing your research! I'm glad we're able to help each other out. Rim locks are cheap so I'm sure you could just ask for them and they'll probably give it to you. A lot of dealers keep them on the cars they have in stock and will be too lazy to take them off. I'm picking up my car tomorow and I asked for rim locks.(70 dollar value BS) if not you could pick it up for like 30 bux. if i was a dealer i wouldn't let sonething that i get less than 30 bux sink a deal.

    It listed at $31,611 (including protection pkg, tint, and moonroof visor) but paid $26,289 plus TT&L (discount of $5,322). They also gave me $14K for my 2008 Civic EX-L sedan trade-in which is excellent according to KBB.com. I had a excellent experience working with the internet sales staff of Bankston Honda in Lewisville, TX. They don't put alot of dealer adds on their cars and were able to remove that dreaded pin stripe with no problem. I highly recommend them.

    Congrats on 2010 V6 coupe - you'll love the V6 power and smoothness. It is a pure pleasure to drive, though I am biased as I have an 09 EXL-V6 coupe.

    What color did you get ? Mine is Crystal black pearl.
  • deadsignsdeadsigns Posts: 10
    wish I could get a coupe, instead picked up the exl v6 sedan today with wheel locks. $24075+710destination +8.875%tax +249 doc fee +310 new plates and registration. came out to about $27550
  • vikramgvikramg Posts: 13
    I got a quote for $17161 + tags + tax + $385 processing fee from a northern VA dealer. Price includes freight charge. Is this a good deal? Can I go any lower? Perhaps the $385 processing fees?
  • blueszbluesz Posts: 11
    Just bought a 2010 Honda Accord LX, AT for OTD 19800

    sales tax is 6.5%. I think my price is OK, but it is very difficult to negotiate with the dealer for a lower price.
