  • Before you do, might I suggest you give folks at Ourisman Honda, in Bethesda a call. I just purchased a 2011 from them. All I can say is, apples to apples, Ourisman folks got the job done for less $$!! I paid around $19,600 for an Accord SE with all season mats, wheel locks and all kinds of nice goodies. They also included oil changes and the first major service.

    I live in CT - and there were no issues with registering in my home state. I have bought a number of new cars. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

    All I can say is - prices are negotiable. At the end of the month even more so. Hope you get the best deal!
  • That was 19,650 before the taxes and plates. They included wheel locks, and all season floor mats. I wanted a few more things and we negotiated those - plus after all was said and done, I financed some at 1.9%. Best of luck and if you buy, enjoy the ride!

    You will be covered for insurance for your drive back to New Jersey. If you were trading, you are automatically covered under your insurance for so many days from the purchase. Instead, you are buying the car outright. Just call and give them the VIN. It is no different than you taking a trip some place.

    In regard to your question about break-in, I never worry about that. You are supposed to drive the car at varying speeds during the break-in which is, I believe, 300 to 500 miles. I just drive mine like I normally would.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all your input. I finally got my car yesterday and it was a pretty great experience at Criswell Honda.
    Except I had not done too much research on Extended warranty and was sold the "Performance Plus Elite Plus Coverage" for $2200 on my Accord EX-L V6 w/ Navi. After I did some research online I have found out that is way too expensive!!! Does anyone know if "Performance Plus Mechanical breakdown coverage" is actually Honda Care. I was told that this coverage is acceptable at any Honda dealer and I just assumed that it was Honda Care. But it looks like that it might not be Honda Care at all. Am I correct?

    I have 60 days to cancel this contract. Which I am going to cancel and buy the contract online from some place like Bernandi Honda or Sacucci Honda.
  • Just curious if you contacted OURISMAN honda in Bethesda MD and what there price was versus Criswell? Also, as you pointed out, the money you saved was just spent on the extended warrantee! I would cancel the contract and see if you could do better on line!

    Enjoy that great ride!

    No I did not contact OURISMAN Honda.

    Does anybody have any recommendation about Bernadi Honda vs Saccuci Honda. They are quoting the exact same price for Honda Care.

    Also does anyone know what "performance first" maintenance plan is? I am pretty confident that it is not Honda care. But just wanted to confirm.

    Thanks.
  • I believe the Performance First Maintenance Plan is put out by an after market maintenance type vendor. What does their maintenance schedule say it will cover and for how much will they contribute vs the Honda Care?

    As for which dealer to go with. Two different states and I am not familiar with each states law regarding disputes, etc. However, since it is a HondaCare product it is supposed to be honored at any Honda Facility - regardless of where you buy it from. Could you share the quote and type of product - years/deductible that type of thing.

    Thanks! I just bought a really nice Accore SE and am thinking about the long term maintenance product as well.
  • Performance First is a division of Dimension Service Corp. and not Honda Care. I am not familiar with this company but I did find this online: http://www0.epinions.com/content_4679966852

  • I bought my SE from Maryland last night. I had two other dealerships around the area fighting for my business. My final price was $18,550 + TTL. Eventhough I live in VA, I travelled 30 miles to MD to purchase the vehicle. It came down to the difference in processing fee(VA-$449, MD-$100) eventually. My OTD price was $20K even. Great service too, I might add.
  • Hi- I am looking to buy an Accord within the next 7-10 days and I saw your excellent posts. I was wondering what made you decide on the SE? I am assuming you compared SE, EX-L, and EX-L V6.

    Also, how did you get the dealer down to $19,600? I looked at the Zag Amex page and it says the dealer cost is $21,280. Is that not an accurate number? Please share your wisdom.. you are clearly a great negotiator!

    At that price, how did you get them to include floor mats, wheels locks, oil changes and first service?

    Thank you so much. I really appreciate your help.
  • I have bought 3 Honda Care policies from Saccuci and have never had a problem.
    When I turned in my vehicles at the end of the leases they sent my refunds for any months/miles still remaining.
    I am not crazy about Bernardi because they do not put their inventory on their web site.

    I am hoping to find a 2011 Coupe EX-L V6 6M w/Navigation, Sam Marino Red/Ivory in New England before the end of the month to take advantage of the 1.9% financing.

    Has anyone seen this vehicle on a dealers lot?
  • I used zip code 20874 to start. It gave me three dealers. But then I used the internet to contact other dealers. Wound up buying through oursiman Honda in MD. I chose the SE because I didn't need a sunroof. The SE is plush, rides great.

    After I received all the offers, I went back to each dealer one more time to get their best and final offer. OURSIMAN won and they kept to their word on price.
  • HI Sammy K - how did you get such a great price? Could you share? was it an LX or SE with leather? I just got a price of $19,600 +TTL bought it a few days ago? Wondering if there is any extra incentive money out there?

    Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the ride.

    1sebringnow and corkscrew thanks for your responses. I have started the process to cancel the extended warranty. The dealer is saying that it takes 12-14 weeks to get refund for the canceled warranty, is this normal?

    1sebringnow regarding the quotes I got for the extended warranty sacucci and Bernadi quoted the exact same price. For 6 years 80K miles (which is what I expect I will use). It has a $0 deductible. The price quoted was $640. This is in comparison to the $2200 that I paid for the Performance First extended warranty with a $100 deductible!!!

    Other than the extended warranty the purchase experience at Criswell Honda was pretty good. Dominique the sales person I worked with was pretty good. Even the extended warranty was not too much pressure, it was just my ignorance that made me buy the extended warranty. But thanks to this forum I hope to cancel the obscenely expensive warranty that I bought.
  • The model I purchased was an SE which comes with leather. I bought it from Shockley Honda in Frederick. I had two other dealerships, both Leesburg and Criswell trying to beat each others offer and had Shockley beat the best offer from the two by $100. When neither Leesburg nor Criswell were willing beat that final price, I went with Shockley's offer. This whole process took about a week but I'm glad I got what I wanted. I used AMEX car buying service to get a starting point of negotiation. It offered the same vehicle at $19700 I believe. I never thought I could save more than a thousand from that price but once they all figured out that I was a serious buyer, they kept going at each other. Enjoy your ride as well.
  • I got a quote for a 2011 LX-P (MSRP$ 23,730) at OTD $21,484.82 in los angeles area (9.75% sales tax). Rep said price reflects $1,800 below invoice. Is it a good deal? Thanks!

    Try Scott Robinson in Torrance. I purchased Cvici from them last month and even beat truecar.com lowest price> Had great experience with them. Ask for Tony Kim.
    Check truecar.com price and find out who are the dealers and contact them get the lowest price from them (negotiate 2-3 dealers back and forth and you hit rock buttom price) then contact Scott Robinson and requst a quote and whatever you get you tell them you have it for so and so.
    Post back your experience.
    Good luck
  • Thanks sammyK2. That is an awesome deal. BTW the absolute best I could do in CT was $21,000. No other dealership in the area would go below it. THen I contacted succuci in RI, and they were at $20,800 before taxes and Reg. ATIMAN in MA came in at $20,500 before taxes and Reg. Finally, I also used the AMEX as a starting point for the Maryland, VA dealerships, Criswell wouldn't budge below the AMEX price, OURSIMAN in MD did. I was able to get all-season mats, wheel locks, and all kinds of trim for the car at the $19,600 price- but not certainly not worth the $1,000 you saved. Proves that being patient saves the consumer money, but also shows that these invoice prices and the "real price" is very negotiable. I am happy with my deal, but a $1000 is a $1000 all day long. Enjoy the ride - it really is a great car. Rides so much better than the 06 accord I had. I took out a bunch of 2010's and even though it is the same style, still rides better.
  • Hi Eurobelle:

    Hopefully by now you are seeing a few posts that detail prices! As good as a deal as I received, you can save about $1,000 more. Be patient, use AMEX as a starting point and then wait. I contacted a number of dealers - but not Shockley in Federick in MD. Criswell, MD stopped at $19700 with me. But kept going lower for another buyer. I bought from oursiman in MD, But, while negotiated, i wanted a number of things thrown in the deal. They gave me my first oil change for free and then the first major service. Reality is, the first major service is installation of two filters. The cost to buy them together is $25.00. It will take you about 10 minutes to replace the air and cabin filter. Save yourself about $150.00...

    I mentioned before that I bought the SE over the EX-L because for about $3,000 you get a sunroof, internal blue tooth, XM hookup and bigger wheels. The only thing I wanted out of these four items was the blue tooth. I didn't want to pay for radio and the sunroof is like a hot tub, you might use it for a while, but in the end, it is just a nice to have for me. I was able to get a negotiated price of $22,750 for an EXL from both OURSIMAN and CRISWELL. Went with the SE and am happy. Would have been a lot happier to save another $1,000 though.

    Good luck with the buying experience and never be afraid to walk in the end!

    According to this blog, http://hondavehicles.blogspot.com/2011/02/confirmed-honda-accord-crosstour-4.htm- - l , there's a 4-cylinder option confirmed for the 2012 Crosstour ... just letting you guys know a headsup in case anyone's interested! I myself am in the market for an Accord and I'm swaying between an EX Accord Sedan V6 or a base Crosstour 4WD, but if the price is right on the 4-cylinder, I'm definitely going for it!
  • Thank you so much for all your advice. I am in the process of negotiating on a V6. We will see where it ends up, and I'll post my results!
  • Thanks for your info! Did try truecar.com and got back some OTD quotes. They were all above $22,000 OTD even though they said $1,850 below invoice..
  • Got a quote in the Boston area dealer

    2011 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L Automatic
    MSRP$28105
    Discounted Internet Price$22846

    Good deal? It looks like it's below invoice.
  • That seems a good deal. Where did you get the quote.
  • I was down to $22,700 in MD. You must be dealing with ATIMAIN in MA? Bet if you push, you can knock another $1,000 off. Tell them you need to be wowed and you'll buy!
  • Atamian Honda in Tewksbury, MA. It was the beal deal I could find around. I floated the same deal around but they couldn't touch it.

    Signed the deal today. Johnny was great to deal with.

    Thank you for good information. How did you pay for that? Did you include loan? I heard that there is an intensitve of $500 from Honda if using Honda Finance.
  • There is a $500 max waiver for the first month payment if a member also owns a Honda in the same household (same address). It is not advertised anywhere but dealers will tell you if you ask. There is no cash back incentive though if you pay cash.
