    Test drove both an '08 EX-L V6 and an '06 EX-L 6M last night. Love the '08, but seriously considering the '06 because I want(ed) a V6 Manual. Car has 7,400 miles on it; dealer wants $23,599, plus TTL, comes to $26,153. The '06 has everything the '08 has excluding blue tooth and fogs. Something tells me this is wanting way too much. KBB does reference $23-something as starting point for negotiation, but still I don't feel $26,153 is such a wow deal that I wanted to grab the deal. As a reference point, I also found a dealer with an '07 EX-L 6M selling for $25,748. I may be paranoid, but being a woman they probably think they can sell me the Brooklyn Bridge, no questions asked. Appreciate any insight anyone can offer!

    Many thanks,
    mstylady
  • I sold my 06 EX-L with Navi, 8300 miles, automatic transmission, a couple of weeks ago for $21,500. It was just like new. I never liked the 2006 but I'm impressed with the 2008 model and will probably buy one. Good luck to you.

    If you scan through some of the older messages, say from the last month, there are deals on 08's for only a few hundred more than the 26153 you have now for a 2 year old car.(08's are not manual). Only the 08 2Dr V6 comes with a manual and I think they can be hard to find depending on where you live. If you are in the NY area, I know of several dealers that have 07's still on the lot (which I am looking into myself). I don't know if they have manual, or anything on prices, etc..

    christinam1,

    What didn't you like about your '06? I drove the '08, great ride, beautiful exterior and interior; too many buttons on the console for my liking would be my only complaint aside from the fact you can only get a stick in the coupe or get a 4 cylinder. How was your mileage on the '06?

    Hi TAOL
    Sale tax in Pittsburgh PA is 7%. Can you tell me what is the invoice on yours? How come you only pay $55 for doc fee and other pay $400 - $600? These fees are supposed to be standard right?

  • Just an FYI for those buying in the Dalla Area:
    Purchased New EX-L 4 cyl. Very impressed with quality, ride and workmanship.
    Toatal price paid: $24,250
    Included: Deck Lid Spoiler,pinstripe,wheel locks,paint and interior protection,nitrogen and mud guards and trunk tray.
    Best internet invoice was $23,950 w/o any add ons.Not sure if they would actually sell the car w/o the ons as they obviously want to get x-tra profit.The process was painful at times but worked out in the end.Got the color/combo I wanted. Hope info. helps.

    All dealers that I contacted in this region asked the same doc fee, $55. I don't know why they did not ask more but that was what I paid. My out-of-door:

    ($22, 750+$55doc) * 1.0825 + $38 electronic filing fee + $2xx DMV fee = ~$24,940.

    Our tax rate is 8.25%.

    I purchased EX-L V4 with Nav. from Renton Honda, WA two weeks ago. They are the best Honda dealers in WA states, No sales games, No pressure, No gimmicks.

    I have already wrote my buying experience in WA state. In WA states, most of the Auto dealers on east side are thiefs. They are sitting here to rip people off. Don't know why:(

    Bellevue Honda, was biggest AH. same as Hinshaw Honda in Auburn. I don't know what they are thinking. Hinshaw Honda's sales manager Rob was big AH & Jerk. He was telling me best price is on sticker. I was laughing at his face. There are 100's of Honda dealers & they are selling the same car. Come on..get some %%.

    Renton Honda match my price (which I got out of state) was $300 less than invoice without any games. Today I got refund check of $137.xx which came back with my license plates. They charged me originally $214 & today refunded me title fees of $137.xx. They could have kept the money but they gave me back:) I appreciate their act of honesty.

    So my Total OTD price for Auto V4 EX-L with Nav. is $285xx.xx which includes TTL. My next Pilot is coming from them.

    They are charging you that fee on behalf of the government and no, they can not keep the overcharge. They are required to return it to you. The dealers always estimate a little higher on the DMV fees to cover themselves, better to return to you the over-charge than coming after you hoping you will pay the shortage.

    In western Massachusetts, I got my quote thru the internet and purchased this car for 26576 ( includes destination, no tax, title, etc ). I could have haggled a little but based upon the scarcity of these cars, I didn't bother to fight for a few dollars less.

    Only two dealers responded, one for the price above and another for 26601. One dealer that I have bought 3 Honda's from in the last 6 years, didn't want to give me a quote but wanted to string me along. The other dealer which had the car in stock didn't give me a quote. A friend of mine test drove the car from this dealer, who indicated that they wouldn't take less than the sticker.

    I was looking for polished metallic w/gray interior but settled for my second choice of Black on Black. I had to wait a few days for them to get the car but it was worth it.

    Very fun to drive and have no complaints so far.

    I just bought a 2008 Mystic Green EX-L 4cyl Auto Sedan for $22.528 + $635 Freight + $195 Appearance Package + TTL

    I thought I got a great deal, but kguenth1: Your base sales price of $22,175 beat me by $250!!

    Invoice according to Carsdirect is $23,428 excluding freight. So, it appears that my dealer gave me a flat $900 below invoice. However, kguenth1 got another $250 off of that price!!

    I was able to knock the appearance package down from $595 to $195, but I'm still a bit miffed, because the only thing that I appear to have gotten from that are front and rear mud flaps and a plastic licence plate frame that has the dealer's name on it. Oh, and the dealer said that a full tank of gas is part of the appearance package. considering that mud guards are $70 online and tank of gas is about $60, I figure I paid about $65 in labor to put those guards on. Would have thought that door edge guards, wheel locks and pinstripes would have been in order, but oh well. Glad I didn't pay a full $595 for $70 mud guards. Besides, isn't a full tank a gas something every honda comes with anyways?

    Love the new Accord and while it may have road noise, so did my 2005 Odyssey and my 2007 CRV. It's a Honda, and it's what I've come to accept. Otherwise, the Accord is fantastic. Love the XM radio and how easy it is to change channels with the large selector knob. There may be alot of buttons on the dash, but they do seem to be fairly intuitive. Also love the 6 disc changer with MP3 capability, but I can't seem to get it to shuffle songs amongst the 6 discs. It will only let you shuffle from a single disc at a time. oh well, can't have everything I guess.

    Any other deals anyone's got on a 4cyl EX-L Sedan (without nav)? Did I get a good deal?
