    he said ok how about $1,250 which is $50 over cost? We agreed on 8 years and 120K for $1,250!" That seems to be a bit lower than Saccucci's "on-line" price!

    No it doesn't. I just got a quote from Saccucci this morning on a Crosstour Honda Care for 8 years, 120K and it was $1,080. They overpaid by $170.

    The dealer that they bought it from, used one of the oldest tricks in the books, saying something was $50 over cost when the cost is really much lower. The buyer feels like he got one over on the dealer with his phone call trick. Meanwhile the dealer is still laughing on his way to the bank.

    Also, congratulations to post 3255 and Post 3288 for your deals.

    Why would you congratulate them?

    Post 3255 got an HC on a Pilot, 8 year, 100K for $1,290. Online price was $1,190. They overpaid by $100.

    Post 3288 got an HC on an Odyssey, 8 year, 100K for $1,350. Online price was $1,190. They overpaid by $160.

    You seem to have become an advocate for buying from the local dealers. However, the people that you point to who went that route are spending more money and getting nothing extra in return.
  • "Post 3288 got an HC on an Odyssey, 8 year, 100K for $1,350. Online price was $1,190. They overpaid by $160. "

    I'll respond as that was me. First off, $160 is worth my time. By that I mean the time involved in me running around town asking the other dealers to beat the current one I went with. My time is extremely valuable and worth a lot and paying $160 to save wasted gas, time, headache and hassle is a steal. To me the savings isn't worth the effort. But if it is to you, good for you. And before you berate me for not trying to find it cheaper on-line the same argument applies. $160 is piddly and being able to knock it out at the time of sale is worthwhile to me. You see, I don't have anything tangible but I did get something in return.

    >"No it doesn't. I just got a quote from Saccucci this morning on a Crosstour Honda Care for 8 years, 120K and it was $1,080. They overpaid by $170."

    Really?

    From post 3281: "I just placed my order for a HCEW,,8/120k,$0 deductible for $1295 with Saccucci and I live in Georgia."

    Poster 3281 just purchased from Saccucci for considerably more than, you say, you were quoted from the same people. Are you suggesting that Saccucci scamed 3281? :confuse:

    Poster 3292 paid $45 less locally than Poster 3281 paid Saccucci. Yet you say 3292 over paid by $170. Then you must also be saying that 3281 overpaid Saccucci by $235.

    >"Why would you congratulate them? "

    Because I'm happy for them! I think they all got fair deals,.
    I suspect EW pricing will vary, depending on the vehicle and how it is equipped.

    FWIW, I also suspect that no one will be able to find the "DEALS" that you do. ;)

    >"You seem to have become an advocate for buying from the local dealers"

    ABSOLUTELY, when the prices are as close as the posts under discussion.

    And, you seem to be an advocate for supporting the "on-line" folks. GOOD FOR YOU. Next time you need service, take your vehicle to them.

    Hi, I'm new to this site and I'm getting great help with the price I should pay for a new civic on another thread. I just contacted Sacucci and Hyannis Honda for prices on extended waranty's. Hyannis Honda quoted the same price through an automated email but when I called and talked with Bob, who was a gentleman, He said he is offering an additional $25 off. It's not much but it seems worth it to me.

    Bob was super nice on the phone. I plan on buying my Civic this afternoon and buying the warranty tomorrow after I have the car.

    Oh yea, another thing I like about Bob is that he takes information and payment over the phone instead of making you fill out forms online. I like the personal contact but that's just me.

    By the way, I'm at $19,900 for a Civic EX-L and feel pretty good about it. I'm going after another couple hundred this after noon. Wish me luck.

    Poster 3281 just purchased from Saccucci for considerably more than, you say, you were quoted from the same people. Are you suggesting that Saccucci scamed 3281?

    Absolutely not! I'm stating that poster 3281 didn't state what kind of vehicle that he is buying the Honda Care for. Post 3295 clearly stated that he was purchasing a Honda Care Crosstour for $1,250. The online quote on that from Saccucci is $1,080. The "negotiating" technique that you complimented led to the person paying $170 more to the dealer than they needed to. Those are the facts. You can contact Saccucci yourself to verify the information.

    It's likely that poster 3281 was purchasing a HC for either a Pilot or an Odyssey as $1,295 is the online price for a 8 year 120K price for those vehicles.

    Poster 3292 paid $45 less locally than Poster 3281 paid Saccucci. Yet you say 3292 over paid by $170. Then you must also be saying that 3281 overpaid Saccucci by $235.

    Again, your attention to detail is lacking. HC pricing varies depending on the model of vehicle that you buy. Instead of doing the actual research, you're trying to compare pricing for two different vehicles as though they are the same when they're not.

    I suspect EW pricing will vary, depending on the vehicle and how it is equipped.

    This is another incorrect statement. HC pricing does not vary based on the trim level of the vehicle or how it is equipped. It only differs based upon the model. That's what makes an HC purchase a really good buy if you purchase it on a vehicle that is one of the upper trim levels.

    FWIW, I also suspect that no one will be able to find the "DEALS" that you do.

    Please, don't suggest that I post inaccurate information. Anybody can find those prices by going to some of the sites that I have mentioned earlier like Saccucci or Hyannis. If you doubt the validity, then go to the sites yourself and ask for quotes.

    I'm trying to assist people in getting the best pricing on Honda Care. If they take my advice, they can do that. If people want to follow your suggestion and pay more money to their local dealers, they are free to do that too. It's their money.

    But if you make future statements that local deals were better than the online pricing, when in fact they are not, I will continue to correct that information.

    jet10000 and kipk

    Hey Guys, let's let it go, okay? You both value different aspects of the HCEW and the online availability of the product for pricing or purchasing. Both of you are right with respect to your own views, and you have stated them many times back and forth. This forum is great for first time buyers/inquirers, but if they have to filter through a pissing fight over two valid points then it detracts from the valuable information posted here. Same could be said for the cheerleading, though I appreciate congratulating one another.
  • I have compared my local dealership with "online" competitors and found that one can find substantial savings on a EW.

    Curry Honda in MA is one that I have found. This one is mentioned here, who are the others and what are your experiences???

    A list of some of them can be found in post 3253.

    As for experiences, they just process your payment and the paperwork comes from the same corporate office as it would if you bought it at your local dealer. After that, you can use it at any Honda dealer in the country.

    2 cents

    Saccucci Honda - they are the ones fighting Honda re: internet sales of HC EWs. Please check their price and consider purchasing from them. I had a flawless experience with them. I needed to ask some questions, called them, and they set me right at ease.

    I also recommend Saccucci Honda. I bought my Honda Care contract from them at a very competetive price, and everything went perfectly.
  • jbg108jbg108 Posts: 7
    Thanks. I did buy the car that day for $19,750. I feel good about the deal. I also purchased the Honda Care from Hyannis Honda at what they said was their cost minus $25. WOW!!

    Bob at Hyannis Honda said they sell them cheap online to make money on an incentive program through Honda. He said they get checks periodically from Honda based on there total sales of waranties.

    Oh yea, I was going to pay cash but ended up financing half for 2.9%. At that rate why not right.
  • I too have saved myself buying from Saccucci. They where great! I emailed them my question and had a reply within a few hours! I bought the five year hundred thousand miles deal for $820.00 they also gave me a code worth $25.00 off when I place an order for parts.

    BUT, I just tried this and it did not work. I emailed Saccucci for help and received a email saying they have no record of this and there second reply to my question said they would look into it, but its has been over five days now with no reply.

    So I can’t recommend Saccucci anymore. Yes the deal on the warranty worked with no problems, but trying to use the code they gave me and to try to give them more of money to support them as fallen on deaf ears.
  • New Pilot owner here... :lemon: read thru tons of posts to get buying advice before I purchased. I think jet100000 is a little too biased for these "online" HC retailers... buyers just beware. If things seem too good to be true, there may be a reason. Jet and a few others have far too many posts in support of these "retailers". Snake in the grass?
  • mkielmmkielm Posts: 37
    There are pros and cons to either buying situation, but putting cyanide in the well water isn't that reasonable either (simply protesting against online purchase because others advocate it strongly). Sorry if you had a bad experience, but others have had good ones. Again, if one simply uses the quotes to get a better deal locally, and they value buying local over the internet then great! If they prefer the lowest price and can't get it from local dealer, then the internet dealer is for them. Whichever works for the individual buyer, but please don't make blanket statements suggesting that one camp is suspect becuase one person advocates it strongly.

    Please do provide your own personal experience! Thanks.
  • mkielmmkielm Posts: 37
    Are you throwing the baby out with the bath water here? In other words, you did receive a good price on the HC EW, and were satisfied with that component of the deal? Absolutely you should get full satisfaction regarding the deal you made with Saccucci, including the $25 off, and if you still want that deal you should talk to an owner at Saccucci. They are a family run operation, and I think are therefore both able to respond quickly to an urgent customer and perhaps more prone to lapses by employees other than the owners.

    I would be surprised if Saccucci doesn't monitor this website. I too have a coupon for $25 that I haven't used from them, so I am interested in how this works out. Please keep the forum posted on your results regarding this issue.

    Thanks.
  • The person I emailed for help was Gardiner Reynolds. I then emailed the parts people a Kim Gray and still no reply. Yes the deal was good saved me a lot of $$$ But still very disappointed with Saccucci. The twenty-five dollars is not going to break me but it’s the principle of the thing.
  • Upon purchasing my 2009 Honda Accord EX-L V6 coupe I was offered Honda Care and declined from the dealership where I purchased the car just out of habit.

    A few months later I did some research online and ended up purchasing an 8 year, 120,000 mile warranty from Bernardi Honda for around $ 1000 minus a 30.00 gift card to Bernardi parts and accessories.

    I wasn't intending to purchase an extended warranty at all because, after all, it's a Honda :D but I ended up purchasing one about a month before Honda forbid dealers from selling Honda Care online.

    All in all, It was a quick and easy transaction.

    No bias. It's just a presentation of factual information of specific pricing from specific dealers which tend to be lower than other dealers.

    You said you made a purchase. Why not share the specifics so that others could get a good deal like you presumably did? Who did you buy from and what price did you get?

    You're throwing out some generalized innuendos that don't add anything to this discussion. You're trying to cast some sort of suspicion without any facts.

    If you had a different experience feel free to share it. Multiple people have stated they had good experiences in purchasing from dealers mentioned in this forum. And they have stated this over a period of YEARS. I know because I have been posting here that long. Prior to that I was a reader who learned how to get a good deal from others who posted before me.

    I simply give good advice for people who want to save money on Honda Care. Don't suggest any dishonesty or deception on my part or on certified Honda dealers' parts who sell Honda Care. You have zero evidence of that.

    No record? Did you receive the code by email? If so, you should just be able to forward the email back to them? Find out who to forward your email to by calling the number listed on their website:

    http://www.saccuccihondacare.com/contact_us.php

    It should be simple for them to sort out.

    I agree! Thanks for the reality check.
    I finished my part of the "Discussion" with my post 3298.

    Me too!, even though the outcome may or may not have been the same as mine. :)

    Thanks again,

  • This HCEW just covers exactly what is covered under the standard 3/36k and the5/60k powertrain?
  • jet10000jet10000 Posts: 656

    No. You should check out a sample contract to review the coverage.

    http://www.hyannishondacare.com/contract.php

    Also, the Honda Care includes roadside assistance from the time you buy it, including during the time period that the standard warranty is still in effect.

    $0, of course. ;)

    Just wanted to send out a thanks for all the advice given on HCEW pricing here. I just signed up for the EW on my 2010 Civic today and used the pricing mentioned here to leverage a really fair price from my local Honda dealer. I decided to support my local (place of purchase) dealer rather than an out-of-state dealer for my contract.

    Happy hunting

    Congratulations! Good job. :)

    Civics are truly fun cars to drive, get great fuel mileage if you do your part, and seem to last forever. With the HCEW you will have piece of mind. :shades:

    I'm assuming from your nickname that you're located in California. If so, a lot of online dealers won't sell to California. At last I checked this one does:

    http://www.curryhondacare.com/

    You can get a quote from them.
  • calijakecalijake Posts: 2
    From California, but I'm in Texas.

    I'd rather buy it from the dealer from whom I'm buying the car, but I wanted a basis upon which to negotiate.

    Oh, in that case, you can check out:

    or

    They should have the best pricing.
