    1. Get new tires for the Accord.
    2. Get shocks springs checked out.
    3. Drive stick.

    I have a 2005 CR-V, which is considerably taller than the Accord, and I have no problem negotiating round enterance ramps are highway speeds.

    Even with the tall vehicle like the CR-V, having manual transmission allows me to shift the weight of the vehicle so that added downforce is applyed to the wheels that need it during a maneuver. You simply can not do that with an automatic, not matter how fancy it is.

    A BMW with an automatic will give you the same feeling.

    please read post # 28989. if you buy like i have posted you will do just fine. Read anyone of my prior post on buying... cant buy this car on march 21 and expect to get that good price..
    Dealers are to busy trying to rob all the uneducated buyers. Smart buyers like us in this forum,,, buy the last day of the month..

    You have no leverage right now.

    Last day of the month should work well, but the dealership and salespeople will generally start dealing around the third to last day of the month. They will be more amenable to lower offers as they scramble to reach the next tier on their quota levels. Yes, you will hit the jackpot walking in at closing at the end of the month if the dealer and salesperson need one more car to get to the next tier but the likelihood is they are already locked in on their last attainable level at that point, so sometimes you would actually do better a day or two before month end.

    Invoice price w/ dest= 24,037. read my post and start your calls and emails on friday 29th buying on the 30th. unless you strike a deal on friday
    Read this board and make a target price. i thought my post was quite clear on buying....... apply it on the last days..

    I would target the high volume dealerships 1st. these dealerships are looking to sell as many cars for the 1st quarter. Honda corp is kicking back a nice check for there volume sales. The smaller dealership is working on selling there 100 cars for the month. dealerships get other incentive checks back also floor plan , finance, etc.

    Why you keep posting your out the door numbers means nothing to me or anyone reading it. I am not a mind reader. Your states sales tax and doc fee's are different in every state.
    There will be good deals to be had next week. alot of dealers have large inventory on certain models..

  • Need thoughts on this deal:

    2013 Honda Accord LX CVT 4 door, modern grey, black interior

    $19,900 price (includes destination fee of $790 in MD)
    + 6% MD tax
    + $200 doc fee
    + ~$475 title, registration fee
    =$21,769

    I am still negotiating. Financing to be done separately, not with dealership.

    Thanks.
  • Correction: title and registration fees are $275 aprox.

    I live in NJ and also looking to buy LX CVT. Could you provide the dealership name as I have not been able toget the car down to your price. thanks.
  • Don't walk, run to get it. U won't do much better until next month. That's $170 better that what I did. What color r u looking for? I know that silver, white, beige colors are sometimes discounted a bit more. But w all confidence go an get it. Your price would be the best price so far jn this forum if no trade in is involved. Are u trading in? What dealer? Pull the trigger is my strong advice.
  • My advice is that if you want to save money about - $500 or more. You will be better of driving to md. U won't get the gimmicks and headaches than by u. Also try NY dealers that people like Brian 125 posted before. Read, read and read this forum. I drove to md 2 weeks ago. But deal was sealed over the phone at the end of the month the 27th. Got buyers order. Put deposit and picked up due to schedule the following week. If u don't have anyone to drive u. U can rent a car like I did one way via budget as they were cheaper at $59 w aaa discounts (I didn't want bother anyone and owe a favor) I got mine at Anderson Honda. Read my posts as I bought the lx. They waived the doc fees and was a smooth process over al.
  • The only other piece of advice is to be careful as there is a couple of dealers in md that sale the lx for the price u r getting but they r the demo models. Check if u r active in the military, u can get $500 off.
  • Also as an update. I checked w wells Fargo and they wouldn't go an extra .25 off my finance rate (1.49 for 60) as their rate is usually 3.59. So, since they were matching, they wouldn't cut more. Those looking to finance. Look for PenFed and Blue Harbor online.

    Phillipsburg/Easton Honda....Gave us the great deal....
  • Can you post the entire break down (price, dest, doc fees, dmv fees, warranty if any add ons) and if there was a trade in involved, thanks

    Just a question: for those of us who have already bought the 2013 Honda Accord, is there a general forum to discuss it? I don't see one.
  • mike372mike372 Posts: 354
    Thanks. I live in northern NJ and best price is 21220 (autosport)with dest and 299 doc fee. At the end of October 2012,the best price I could get was 21200 including dest and doc fee, excluding reg fee and NJ tax. I am going to contact the dealer which gave me the price last October and ask for 20,500 inc dest and doc fee. But I dont think they are going to say yes. You got an excellent deal at Anderson. Yesterday, I registered with their website so I probably wil get a call. Did you get the price by registering first or did you just call the dealership? My 2000 Civic odometer just reached the 260K mark and I cant wait any longer. How did you get them to waive the doc fee, I have discovered that is almost impossible (even Brian125 could not do that inMD.)
  • No I emailed them using cars.com I believe or Edmunds. Just email the dealers that people are posting that are willing to work w u. My salesperson was Jim Kelly. Tell him that mvperez4jesus sent u. He was very good
  • Their original offer was $300 more plus doc fees. Then, I told them that I didn't want any accessories (as it included mudgards, wheel locks and something else). I also told them that in order to earn my business, it had to be worth the trip. Meaning a few hundred off versus my local dealers. Then they came back w the final number.

    I am telling u, no dealer and I mean no dealer in our area was willing to beat/match or come close to the price. The closest I go about 1:30 min away in pa was $22.150 otd. And believe me, I emailed every dealer possible in nj and pa. Maybe 2 in ny. Though Not the good ones.

    Some salespeople were honest and told me to get the deal if it was true. Other dealerships were trying to convince me that the deal was a gimmick.

    All I can say is that the gimmick is sitting in my driveway...lol.

    Just follow the instructions and see. The dealers in nj w 6% pa taxes quoted me like 22.4 otd.
    Now, in my case I also needed the car asap and had no choice but to pull the trigger. I wanted to wait until memorial day. If u can't plan a trip to md. They are way more competitive and straight forward w prices and what not.

    I believe you in that probably no dealer in NJ or PA is going to match your price. The absolute lowest I got last October was from Ray Price in Stroudsburg, the offer was 21,000 plus 129 doc fee plus 65 for some sort of in transit tax because I lived in Nj and was buying the car in PA, plus NJ reg and state tax. I do have the time to drive to MD I just want to make sure the price they quote is worth it and when I come with the bank check I can drive home with the Accord LX CVT sedan the same day. I dont buy new cars very often so its important that I get the best possible price. Because your price was like 1000 under invoice do you know what kind of incentives Honda is throwing their way? Because obviously they are not going to sell a car at a loss.Also, did you trade in a car? Thanks again for all the info its been a great help.
  • No trade in my case. Get the buyers order and have them faxing u or emailing via attachment.
    I did the numbers and it was like $1,099 below invoice. My car had a fabric protection that they claim they didn't charge and it was included in the price. No website reveals any special incentive per say. But, is one of those things that perhaps what they pay in rent, delivery charges, who knows. But, big key is having the buyers order signed by their manager. I went after a week and the ccar was ready. No demo or any damage or whatever people may think. Only 4.8 miles in it. Very nice ride. Save a lot in gas vs my 08 accord that I still have. Only needed a second car in my case.

    I don't buy cars often and trying to maximize the hard earned money is tough. So, driving to md in a one way ticket w budget at 59 one way. Sealed the deal, then dropped the car near by. They dropped me at the dealership and on my way home all within 2 hours, plus driving time. No traffic on Saturday....

    But that's not necessarily for new owners. You could drive one and not like it.

    OTD will depend on what your local fees and taxes are.

    I was just out test driving the Accord this past weekend, even though I am not in the market, yet. First price offered by the dealer was $23,250 ($25,284 OTD for my locality) for EX 6 spd, with 0.9% APR for 36 months, or 1.9% APR for 60 months if I wanted to finance.

    The car definitely has pick up. Even in 6th gear, when it was revving low, it had problem getting up to speed without the need to downshift.

    Standard back up and blind spot cameras are a really nice touch. Bifocal mirror is cool too.

    The clutch is reallylight, feather light compared to the one in the CR-V, which is light comprared to others. Shifter is really snickety smooth and precise. The car really does not lean in corners, and using the engine to shift weight mid turn makes for really tight cornering abilities.

    I got lucky, I got a salesman who knew what the car is capable of and did not scream during cornering. He actually told that I could have taken the S-curve a lot faster than I did.

    It really is an amazing car!
