    Hey xfumbler;
    Recently in PA I was quoted [in writing] $21,012, including destination, for a 2008 Accord Sedan EX MT. PA tax is 6% and non tax fees were $94, so the OTD was $22,366. So maybe you can get your dealer to lower their price by almost $188. My dealer lowered their base price by throwing in their 2% holdback, plus some of their dealer sales incentive money. Hope this helps if you are still in the negotiation stage. Later.

    San Marino Red qwith Ivory cloth interior.

    The offer from the dealer is $21,777 plus tax & tags. That makes it $23,177 OTD.

    Good deal or not ?

    I'm going to e-mail bomb the local dealers to see if they want to try and do better.

    If I get an amazing offer for an EX or EX-L I'll consider it, but the Mrs actually prefers the cloth seats.

    TIA

    I've used that site quite a bit, from what I've observed some of the prices posted here in the forums are lower than the ones listed on that site.
  • Hi zdad
    I got the car from Bay ridge honda in brooklyn ..i was getting similar quotes from joyce honda, open road honda but i guess all these would b too far for u but i suggest ask for quotes in 50-75 miles radius and then u can get it beaten by ur local dealer. Do read post # 19746 thats really helpful n looking at the forum looks like u shld wait till the month end for the best deal.
    happy shopping.

    I've made the purchase already. As my first new car purchase, if I'm off the best price by $188 I'd say I did a good deal. :) My other offers were 21,480 and 21,699, the latter being of the "we do not negotiate" variety but IIRC that was for an AT. I found no information on any incentives at the time.

    Thanks for the info.
  • was that for an 5AT (5 speed automatic) or manual? for an automatic, that's great. i paid for 2008 accord coupe, EX-L, 5AT,I4 (4 cylinder) with NAVI and appearance package (wheel locks, pinstriping \and mudguards) for $25,500 - when i added VA tax (3.2%), tax/license, processing (their's was $299), destination, etc. it was $27685 OTD
  • tamoshanter... it was for an automatic with NO nav. How are car dealerships able to go below cost if there are no dealer incentives? I know my quote was well above cost.

    thanks

    As your first new car purchase you did very well getting it below invoice price. You are absolutely correct that the $188 difference still makes it a great deal. Congratulations and enjoy your new ride.

    Here's an update.....

    E-mailed 4 dealers this morning. Best OTD price for an LX-S (auto) is $23,014. That's in a 6% tax state, and includes $118, for tag & title. That's $150 better than my last offer. Not enough to make me throw my neighborhodd dealer out, but I will make him match that.
    Got one other OTD offer of $23,647. One refused to give me a quote without knowing what the other offers were first. Told him thanks for calling and hung up. Still waiting on one more.

    Also got an offer for an EX-L I$ Auto (no Nav)....$26,194 OTD. That's frankly better than I was expecting. I may end up in a leathered up EX-L !!!

    Why can't more people post like that, rather than yammering on about their awesomeness, not explaining important things like the $2k tradein they gave or even mentioning ANY important information at all (much like THIS post) :)

    I will be looking to purchase a new Accord 08 EX Sedan 5AT. From reading these forums I have an idea about the price. What is unusual is that most of the time people post what they paid below or above invoice. For some reason everyone is getting away from that.

    I would like to know what I should expect to pay relative to invoice. Any ideas, comments or suggestions are more than welcome, thanks.

    I've been getting quotes from dealers in the Atlanta area. Hoping to purchase this month. I've probably emailed with about 7 dealers, and the best quote I've received was...

    MSRP $28,945
    Invoice $26,277

    Selling price $25,393
    Dealer fees $557 (this includes doc fee & appearance package, which they wont budge on)
    Tax (6%) $1,557
    Title $42

    OTD $27,549

    They don't have my first color choice, which is Polished Metal Metallic, but they do have my second choice of Silver. By the way, I will not have a trade in. That price is really making me want to pull the trigger and purchase ASAP.

    San Marino Red with Ivory Leather Interior

    Got the last dealer to e-mail his offer tonight.

    Sticker: $26,595 (incl $635 Destination)
    Offer: $24,153 (which is invoice)
    Tax: $1,449 (6% in PA)
    Tag & Title: $161 (new tags, no trade)

    OTD Price: $25,763.

    This is the best offer i have gotten by $494. Giving my local dealer one chance to match. I male the purchase tomorrow.
  • I just bought a Taffeta White Accord Coupe EX-L for 25646.00 OTD. Negotiated price before fees was 23888.00 which included destination. I am very happy with the car, and I was not expecting to be. I traded in 1 2006 Nissan 350Z touring edition because I needed a back seat for the new born, This car is really nice alternative and the sound parallels the BOSE in the Z. Got it from Chico Honda as it was the ONLY dealer in CA with a white coupe.
  • Congrats on the deal... Was it a manual or AT?

    Zdad, I also live in Pa. and got the exact same car ( you are talking about the 4 door and not the coupe ). I purchased on 3/29/08, but I don't understand why the MSRP and invoice numbers are different. You can see the details of my deal at post #19938, they might help you get a better deal.
  • zdadzdad Posts: 12
    HP....I erred in my title. Mine is a COUPE, not a sedan. Don't know if that makes the difference. Sorry
  • if you can get that coupe EX-L V6 AUTO without NAVI for about $27700 OTD, is a pretty good deal. you may be able to nickel and dime it down to close to $27000, but still pretty good (make SURE it is the OTD price - including EVERYTHING!)
