Would like your advice on a used 2014 Honda Accord EX-L V4 in Chicago. It's pre-owned and not CPO, with about 9700 miles on it and 20 months left on the original warranty. What would be a fair price for this? The dealer is asking for $23,8xx + ttl/taxes but I think that is too much when I am seeing some of the new 2015 EX-L's going for low $24k.
Please share your opinion. Thank you!

brian125Good job you will make the best possible deal this month buying like you are. please post in the Accord forum with your dealer info / details when your done.
anagoreeI have just posted my buying experience on CRV forum. I bought CRV instead of Accord. :)

OTD PRICE: $26,357.74
Another dealer was ready to take another $100 off on above price. My OTD deal $26,257.74
My CRV EX-L AWD deal was:
OTD PRICE: $29,195.31
Thanks for all your valuable help.
Well Brian the end of the month and the quarter has come and gone.
My goal of $24K for a EX-L 4-cyl no nav. has not been accomplished.
The good news is that I learned a lot. It seems their is other good
news for us because Honda missed their numbers in February.
Is their increased motivation for Honda to offer incentives?
Should I lower my expectations? Maybe I should permit time be my friend
and let each day work in my favor as the beauty of car devaluation

My friend is buying in Texas - Houston Area. They want the following:
Toyota Tundra Limited 2WD CrewMax with Short Bed. Gray or Silver. With Tow Package. No trade-in but they are putting $8k down for down payment.
Thoughts on what they should pay? They were quoted $42,883 after $1000 rebate and this includes state taxes, title, destination fees, Documentary fee ($125), Dealer Inventory Tax ($86). etc. They got a work order from the dealership.
I think they can do better especially today/tomorrow. Let me know where you think they should be price-wise.
thanks!0 ·December 2014
Do you help with Toyota Tundra buying as well? Or just Hondas? Also, can you message me a link to your email template that you send dealerships? I've been looking all over the forums for it and I can't find it.

Hi, Brian, I should call you "Brain". You have the Brain for buying cars. Thanks so much to wonderful people like you helping no car buying experience people like me. I got a quote from the local dealer, I live in Orange County, California. What do you think of the final OTD prices for W/NAV and one W/O NAV? I don't really care for one, but my husband's Honda had one and he loves it. What's invoice price for EX-L W/NAV and W/O NAV. So I can work on my negotiation. I don't think these prices are good enough. What do you think? Thanks again for everything you do for us! I am really grateful!

Which models are you talking about. awd models or fwd models?????? Navagation is not worth the 1400 dollars difference. buy a 200 dollar garmin nuvi gps system they are alot better than dealer installed systems. I have navagation in most of my vehicles. i stll find my portable Garmin alot better than them. click on my 2800 comments read thru my postings on buying tips and advise and you will save some money.0 ·October 2014
janice678It's the front wheel drive. Thanks a million!
I really need your expert's opinion. I got a quote for CR-V EL-X with Navigation is $26,707 plus $2,185 registration fee. Without the navigation is $25,318 plus register fee. Are those prices sound good enough to you? Can I bargain little more? Interest is .90% APY. Should I get one with navigation or have an outside company install it? Should I buy 2014 or wait for 2015 model? Thanks so much for your help!0 ·October 2014
You were right, fees are way over what I thought; yesterday I called 4 dealers, 2 of them are the ones I had spoken before;
1st dealer: "Offical fee" $131, plus
'Doc fee" $189,
so that's closed to what you had mention on your first comment ($399),
2nd dealer: Title and Reg fee= $50
Doc fee $189 and
something called an "inventory fee" of 0.35% - they add it after all these fees and sales tax,
The other 2 dealers want me in before telling me their fees...
Most probably I will have to go by myself, even though all the info and tips I'm learning here are being of huge help, I am afraid once in their "office" I will be an easy prey, I will not know all the answers or ways to reject their reasons for all those fees I know they are ridiculous and can be taken away. I have read that dealers get reimbursed for every car they sell, advertising expenses, servicing cars, etc.
Can you please offer me some advice?0 ·September 2014
Hi! Brian, first of al I really appreciate your support and advice.
So far this is what I have come with after reading your posts and comments. I could not find the DOC fee for Tx dealers, all I found was some charge between 0-250, so I calculated my target price on 250 as Dealer fee.
I have set my target price (MTP) for a 2014 Accord Sport CVT( trunk tray, splash guards, mats and wheel locks ) as
- MTP- 20,975
- Estimated sales tax(TX) - 1,311
- DMV - 63.50 + local county fee (maybe) - 11.50
So this makes it for a OTD - 22,361, this should be a good fair price, right?
After I did my search on fees and charges I have not made an offer to any dealer yet, neither to the first 2 dealers I had spoken at first, should I first offer MTP before all taxes and fees or should I write my offer including those charges and fees?
Greetings from the South &
Thanks for all you do!

Hello brian 125
What do u think of the2014 Nissan rogue select awd ?0 ·September 2014
You wanted to know which dealer I purchased RDX at. It was Acura of Serramonte.0 ·September 2014
I am from Philadelphia, am planning to buy Honda Accord EX-L w/o Navi. Could you give me some comments regarding the following quote:
$26,696 OTD price=$24,550 (car price)+$1964(Tax, 8% in PA)+$184(TTC)
Its higher than what people paid from other areas, but this is the lowest quota among 10 local dealers.
Do you think this the right price to target ? Would the price be lower on Monday, which is the last day of Labor day sale promotion?
Thanks in advance.0 ·August 2014
@brian125: Hi Brian, am from DE, am planning to buy Honda Accord EX. Based on the comments posted by you and other members in this forum, I decided to buy from Maryland dealerships instead of DE. I am thinking to target price around $21,250 excluding TTL and accessories. Do you think this the right price to target ?
