Hey Brian125, you have a very good story - and as I indicated in my post, I was giving an opinion - or warning. Edmunds has a very good website (allowing us to post these opinions) and is a viable alternative to TRUECAR. After reading an article in an autotrade publication and getting direct quotes from the TRUECAR CEO - it was apparent that greed was a priority at RIPOFF car (TRUECAR) in its decision to no longer include the low cost high volume dealers in its "pricing charts". It was deliberate as the whole article was dedicated to let dealers know that TRUECAR was tilted to them (so they could get their grubby hands on $300 bucks per transaction). The article started out on how ticked off some dealers were that TRUECAR was showing the real prices for a period of time - and in order to earn their trust, TRUECAR backed off including them. Personally, I'd rather see hard working folks keep their $300 plus dollars instead of giving it to the purveyor of not completely true information. My hope is when you bought your car, TRUE CAR was not part of the negotiation and you were able to by pass them and they did not get their grubby hands on the $300 dollars they want to earn by deceiving (my humble opinion of course. Enjoy your new car!
I know the majority of members are buying Accords in this forum like we preach hear. Only a few posters asked in this forum about true car pricing. True car is a non factor in this forum... I think anyone who stumbles on this Accord site and applies how and when to buy like is suggested does better than doing it there way.
The best way to get to your target price is......
Bringing in as many dealerships your willing to travel to into the mix and buying at month's end with your target price to buy that day.. Negotiating online first via email and direct phone calls speaking to each internet mgr.............. Is how you make your best deal..

Has anyone had any buying experiences with a 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid? What prices are you seeing in the marketplace?
Most people are getting prices close to Msrp on this model.. If you want a early hybrid model you may have to pay close to sticker. As the months roll by and you find more hybrids on lots is when you may save a few more dollars.
Compare the 4cyl to the hybrid in terms of mpg and pricing. Non hybrid model= 1k plus below invoice is where your pricing is right know.. opposed to almost full sticker..
Going with the hybrid model and paying top dollar opposed to the 4cyl model and saving about 3500 to 4000 less would probably take you 3 yrs to recoup that money gas wise.

Taxes at $1402 (PA at 6%)
TTL including $130.00 document fee -- $224

$500.00 Recent Graduate discount.
Great experience with this dealership and previously purchased a 2006 Accord LX SE from them.
Which dealer offered you that price? I live in So Cal., and the lowest I've received so far is $20, 561.
Hello, I am in Southern Maine and looking for a good deal on a 14 EX-L with no extras. Where might be a good place? Thanks.
Make alist of dealers to call in your area and compare to dealerships in M.A. It might be worth the car ride or one way bus to further dealership.
Your target price to buy should be 500 to 1500 below dealers invoice price on any model you choose. Try to buy closer to the very end of any month..
Any rebates and Incentives are added onto your deal after the agreed selling price. Read thru previous boards for dealers outside of Boston area with good pricing.. .
I am in Houston, TX and have the following best quote as of now for a Honda Accord LX CVT 4dr. Please help me understand if this is a good purchase price or not.
Sales Price (including destination): $20,769.00
Total drive out: $22,393.26
Invoice w dest charge = 21,619. This puts you at 850 below invoice on the LX cvt model.
I would call more dealerships to see if flex cash of 500 is being offered then have the flex cash dealership match or best your offer of 850 below invoice.
Thanks! Quick question - How did you reach to the 'invoice w dest charge' amount?
Edmunds, kbb.com, Nada pricing. . Try nada web page i find it to be quicker than edmunds.
I live in the socal area. (San Bernardino/Riverside) I am looking to get a 2014 Accord Sport. Truecars.com gave me offers for $22,220+ttl. Is it possible to get a dealer to go down to $21k+ttl? What is the best quote/deal anyone has gotten for an Accord Sport 14' in the Socal area. And no I don't qualified for military or graduate program. Any help will be appreciated. Please include dealer/city and perhaps name of salesperson. Thanks
Thanks Brian! So I am actually in a dilemma, I just got another deal but that is for a used Accord 2013 LX CVT with 12k miles for $19000 OTD from a Lexus dealer. Which one sounds better, going with the used car or spending at least $2.5k-3k extra to get a brand new one, considering I wont be keeping the car for more than 3-4 years?
Thanks for the help folks.
please provide us with the selling price of the 2013 cvt lx accord without taxes.. Just selling price.
A 2013 accord cvt lx model with 4,000 demo miles.. this is a 1 year old model. invoice price was 20,579.
A fair price is 3000 off this number plus flex cash if dealer has to offer. any price under 3k walk away its not worth the sale. A new 2014 model could be had a 1k below invoice.
Im................. me and we could discuss this further...
