    Brian,

    I wanted to make a move sooner rather than later. If I didn't see the TSX, I was waiting until the end of the month.

    I appreciate everyone's support and advice. I was much more prepared this time.

    I'll be honest, the complaints about the Honda scared me. I'm sure the latest patch and potential future fixes could fix some issues. I didn't want to risk it. Going back and forth to the dealer to diagnose was something I didn't want to do. And to clear things up, it could still happen to my Acura.

    Thanks again!!

    Have fun with your new Acura, You said you bought a black Acura great color. Buy this wax it is the best wax for dark colors. P21s. They use this wax on very expensive sport cars for the auto shows . p21's brings out that great shine. Goes on and off effortless. Your car will always look like a sheet of glass /reflection. You could wax your car in 20 mins. I ve been using it for 15 years and i'm still amazed how good it works. Its a pure brazillian carnaba wax.
    35 dollars for a 6 oz jar. Check it out you wont be disappointed.

    I live in North Jersey and looking for a 2013 Accord EX-L V6. I received 2 quotes from different dealers - one for 26,950 and 26,900. Both do not include dest fee, doc fee and taxes. Is this a good price ? What should it be ?

    Thanks for the heads up, I've dealt with Honda City in Levittown, NY back in 2007 when I purchased my current Accord, but they won't get back to me via email

    The price I posted was Out the Door price. There is no way any where in USA you can get 2013 Accord LX Automatic OTD for $19K.
  • jaxs1jaxs1 Posts: 2,697
    I would be better if everyone would itemize the price of the car without their local and state fees so we can see what the car is selling for.

    Sales price of the car including destination charge and any extra fees like doc fees that go to the dealer is the price the car is selling for.
    Sales tax and registration/license fees being mixed into grand total OTD postings just makes it too difficult to compare to anyone else since those costs vary widely across the country.
    For instance, OTD prices in Oregon vs CA are not comparable.
  • The price I posted was not OTD. I never mention OTD because TT, fee vary from state to state.
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,432
    What your saying is at 19,000 for a LX excluding tax, dmv and doc fee's you paid $2369 under invoice. Was this accord red. I would have to agree with mike on this one. No way
    I know one person who purchased a LX in april for 1700 below invoice. they paid doc fee's of 399 so the dealer really sold the car for $1300. below his invoice price.

  • I went it at the end of month. They tried to sell me a car but I wasnt going to buy one that day regardless, I was just shopping around. He initially gave me the MSRP, I said that I came in because because I had received an internet quote of $20640. Then one of the salemen said that they get really aggressive at the end of the month and wanted to know if I would buy the LX if they came in at $19k. I said, again Im just shopping around and I wasnt going to make a decision right there and then. I was interested in a 2013 LX CVT, silver Metallic.

    So no I didnt buy the car but why would they offer me $19k if they weren't serious. Again this is just the price, excluding taxes and fees.

    Sometimes it pays to not be too naive. Very often dealers or loan officers will throw a number at you just to gauge your buying willingness, that way they are not wasting their time. If you willing to buy you will see that what they told you is not the real numbers, they will come up with some BS and never offer you what they said initially, has happened way too many times.

    Anything too good to be true, be cautious. I have 2012 SE Accord, which I bought last August before 13 came out, currently 10K on it, one oil change done, however I am always in this forum always checking market prices. My 2012 back then was 19.5 k sale price, with taxes doc etc came to 22k even in north jersey.

    I would like to get the 2013 either sport for 22k OTD or the exl auto for like 24k, probably the EXL won't happen until the new version comes but wishing is free.

    Cheers everyone, and good luck hunting for great deals. Julian

    Dealership low balled you to see if you were Serious and to see if you knew pricing. That price is not happening. Maybe End of the year. Honda will not lose or give this hot model and number 1 seller away. At almost 2400 below invoice price honda would be losing money on that deal.

    I'm glad you cleared this up

    Brian is correct - this is a common sales tactic - "if I was able to get you the car at xxx dollars, would you buy right now?" You'll notice the word if is in there so they are not committed to anything they told you. They will also do this to get you to return to their dealership when you don't receive a quote this low at another dealer - its known as a walking number.

    anybody purchase a 2013 EX-L V6 Sedan in the chicago area? trying to get quotes and prices. i'm closer to the naperville area. want to see what everybody is sort of getting. would love to come close. you can pm or email me at richmui128@comcast.net

    thanks a bunch.
  • ohenryxohenryx Posts: 285
    Is it possible to get the V6 engine without the sunroof? I'm rather tall, and the sunroof decreases headroom.

    No......... I have the EXL v-6...I'm 6'1 and there is plenty of headroom. the only thing i dont like is the car sits low to the ground. Feels like i'm on a skate board..I have always driven a SUV... Most of the time thats what i drive.

    I negotiated but failed to reach a deal at the end of last month on an Accord EX-L 4 cyl. The lowest price I could get from the dealership in Schaumburg was $26,000 (including the "Convenience" package -- wheel locks, mud flaps and trunk liner). I said I'd go $25,500 to compensate them for the package and they said no, not enough.

    My original bid was $25,000 and their original response was just under $27,000. I wouldn't go above $25,500 and they would not go below $26,000. So, no deal. I'm not sure that will help you with the V6 but it's the same market with one-step down in vehicle. If I cannot reach a deal on the Accord, I'll move on to a Camry. Toyota seems to be very aggressively pricing their cars right now.

    Just remember your trading down.
    The Accord is heads above that Camry. Every region has different pricing on the Accord. If my area sells for 1200 below invoice price on the accord and in your area its only 500 below invoice that should not deter you from buying it.
    your main objective is to find the market price in your area and get that price.
    If you want to travel out of your state for a better bargain thats fine.

    My suggestion would be to ask all dealerships in your area for 1000 below invoice price and you will buy that day. If you cant get 1k shoot for 700/800 and make your best deal. You have to be in control of the negotiations

    start your buying process on the 2 to last day of this month. dealerships looking to meet those sales incentives will sell cheaper on that day than earlier in the month.

    Good luck

    Well, I don't see it as trading down. The Camry is quieter and softer (less tight). But let's be honest, these are family sedans, not sports cars or luxury cars. The XLE is a nice car and the Hybrid XLE is a very nice car, especially now that gasoline is $4.29/gallon in suburban Chicago.

    I did follow your suggestions during negotiations but I reached a point where I refused to bid higher, and where they refused to go lower. I'm not in a hurry to buy but that may change.

    Plus, April was a good month for the Honda -- it was the top selling family sedan for the month, was named Consumer Reports top family sedan, and, well, it's still relatively new to the market.

    No big deal. We have an Accord now and have been happy with it, but it has a lot of road and wind noise and I've never loved the driver's seat.

    Every car is a compromise of sorts.
  • ohenryxohenryx Posts: 285
    I have to disagree with your assessment, there isn't "plenty of headroom", not for me, anyway. I do not like driving in a reclined position, and the 1.5 to 2 inches "stolen" by the sunroof really bother me. I called the closest Honda dealer, and they agreed with your statement that you cannot get a V6 without the sunroof. Rather dumb, in my opinion, but there it is. Scratch the Accord from my list....
  • jaxs1jaxs1 Posts: 2,697
    You can get a V6 Altima. You don't have to get the high trim levels to get a V6 there.
    Or you could get a Sport or LX Accord. The 4 cylinder is not slow and it is not like you will be pulling a trailer with an Accord even with the V6.

    Hi, what dealer did you go to if you don't mind? Did this include any financing deals? I'm targeting Memorial Day Weekend to pick up this same car. Thanks.

    -Amount Financed (OTD): $20819.89 (exclude TTL and doc fees it comes to: $18793)

    I want to add after market leather upholstery (probably go with katzkin). Dealer quoted me $1400 to do that. I have not decided yet. Could you please share your opinion with this price and the quality with katzkin?

    Also, I plan to add: All Season Floor Mats, Trunk Tray, Splash Guard and Exposed Wheel Locks. Is it necessary? What do you guys think of Collegehillshondae ? I found a cheaper one: handa-accessories. Anyone bought from them before?

    If you are close to Santa Rosa, CA and would like to buy a Honda. I would like to recommend my sales man, feel free to send msg to me and ask. I think they still have flex quota for this month and the internet price they gave is the "true" price. I did not negotiate anything when I was at the dealership. No DIOs. I am very happy with the whole process so far.

    For aftermarket leather most people go with Katzkin or LeatherSeats or Clazzio -- not sure which one is better or how good they are (search around the web for aftermarket car leather reviews). Most leather kits cost around $550-800 online (installers get a discount on those prices, Clazzio is usually cheaper than the other 2), but installation labor takes a while since the leather doesn't just slide on top of the cloth seats (they remove the seats from the car, separate the components, remove the cloth material from each component, install the leather, put the seats back together and reinstall)

    It looks like only Katzkin has leather for 2013 Accord so that's probably your only option right now. Find other Katzkin installers in your area (check Katzkin website) and get multiple quotes so you know what the installed price is in your area -- if the dealer wants $1400 then see if they're willing to knock down the price a little more or else go to an independent shop. If you're not happy with current price quotes then wait a few more months until there are more custom leather options available

    College Hills and H&A are the usual go to places for discount parts/accessories (check shipping costs when comparing prices) -- you can also search for accessories on ebay since there's usually a few dealers on there and its easier to find prices with shipping

    Are those accessories necessary? That's up to you to decide lol. Doubt people care about your LX wheels so wheel locks probably aren't needed (if you bought a sport with 18" wheels then those will probably be targeted by thieves). Splash guards are up to you. Trunk tray and all season mats are probably worth it -- trunk tray you can get OEM or Weathertech (whichever is cheaper) and all season mats you could go for OEM ones, but I prefer Weathertech DigitalFit FloorLiners (I have these in my Civic and keep them in all year round, no worries with rain/snow/mud/dirt)
