2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Thanks gil. No I have not contacted Honda dealers yet. I was actually looking for a 2014 Mazda6 Touring. I received several offers with one $800 below invoice (destination included). Mazda6 has excellent reviews except for its infotainment which was described by all reviews as being worthless. This was a turn off for me. I am now looking for a 2014 EX-L.

    I will call Mercury Insurance to see how much Lowjack can save me but I may not get it anyway.
  • I was quoted $28, 400 doc fees included...that was the lowest of 6 quotes on a 2014 Accord Sedan EX-L 6V. According to my research, invoice is around 27,500. The dealership explained to me that they aren't as willing to negotiat.e on the 6V because Honda doesn't produce many (supply is down). I posted a few days ago about that but didn't get one reply. I am waiting until Monday, (last day of the month & quarter) and we will see where they are at. I think you have a decent could always ask them to thow in some accessories you want or a window tint, etc. good luck!
  • Oops didn't realize this is accord specific, found it through google search.

    MSRP is $24,555 for the 2013 Civic EX-L Automatic, Leather seats, and with Navigation.

    Dealer gave me $21,467 price.
    Residual is 55% = 0.55*21,467 = $11,807
  • thanks for the information. I will also wait for Monday :)

    I cannot say what a good price would be at the end of this month or next month. It all depends on the market price in your area when shopping the last two days of the month. Supply and demand would also be a factor.

    I do not want throw out any numbers, since that would be a guess. Where are you located? Have you gotten any other quotes on the 2014 model?
  • got a honda accord ex l 2014 i4 for $25100 + 350 doc fees, MA taxes and registrations came out to about 27000.

    What dealership sold you 2014 for 1550 below invoice ? I doubt your numbers are correct.

    Would you please tell us the salesperson's name ?
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 4,708
    I did not post that sale price. I questioned it.. No dealership is going to sell you a 2014 at that price................... Nobody. Unless its a 2013 model.

  • What's a good price for this weekend in Maryland? Anyone have any recommendations on dealers? Dealer quoted me 27300 inc flex for a v6 2dr but that seems like it's invoice price?
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 645
    Invoice incl destination is around $28.5 - supply is probably limited - you're at 1200 under factoring flex - what is your goal? Does the $27.3k factor in dealer doc fee?

    Thanks for the response , they are saying 200$ doc fees as well. So 27.5 plus tax tag. I guess I didn't think to factor in destination, but it still seems kinda high. Anyone purchase a 2 or 4 dr v6 recently and can provide their cost breakdowns? Would be much appreciated so I can have the upper hand come this weekend when I head into the dealers. Thanks

    Try these dealerships for pricing


    Maybe Anderson.. beware they add alot of accessories on there vehicles. i have tried 3 times on a match price with above 3 dealerships which was refused.

    3rd quarter ends next monday. if your looking for a lowest possible price on a 2013 or 2014 model Sat ,Sun and Monday will be your best chance. Dealerships that pricing was not as good last month may be a different story this month. Get as many dealerships involved as possible and make your best deal by monday night.

  • Looking to purchase a 2013 EX-L w/Nav, hopefully this weekend. Any recommended San Diego area dealers? Getting ready to email internet sales dept's but not a lot of info on SD here in the forums.

    I'd consider Temecula or Orange County as well.

    I live in Minneapolis/St Paul. Have got quotes from 4 dealers (Inver Grove, Buerkle, Walser and Richfield) and they are all quoting around $300 over invoice for 2014 EX (ie around $24,600). OTD total is pretty similar for them too.

  • iffiiffi Posts: 5
    For 2014 EX the best I am getting is $300 over invoice right now via email.
  • MSRP for this loadout appears to be $32,910. What's a reasonable price to purchase this car for? I won't have a trade-in.

    Truecar's website tells me I can get $1,898 off MSRP. Are there other websites you can suggest that will help me determine what to pay?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
  • bluemkn57carsbluemkn57cars Boston, MAPosts: 361
    I agree, Brian. Those numbers do not add up on a 2014 model. It ccould have been a 2013 model. We need more info on this deal.
  • Herb Chambers lowest price on 2014 was $25800 for an EX L.
    Honda Cars of Boston/Herb would not match the price I got.

    It's going to take some time and effort, but my suggestion is to send out emails to all the dealers in the area. Work with the Internet Dept first so you're not dealing with any sales people directly.

    Then reply to one of them and tell them that Honda cars of Boston offered you $25,213 for a 2013 Honda Accord EX L - Although you weren't too picky about the color you prefered xyz.

    See what they say. If they match, I'd say stop by dealer 1 and put a deposit down but do not do any financing term yet. Tell them you're busy and that you'll come back the next day to finalize the deal.

    Continue replying to other dealers and let them know you've made a deposit down at Dealer one but that you werent too sure if you got the best deal or not.

    Hopefully if they really want the business they'll either match it or beat it.
    If they beat it, call back dealer 1 and let them know you don't want to move forward with the purchase anymore because dealer 2 offered you a better price.

    This was what I did, and eventually dealer 2 offered me a 2014 for 25,100 for which I got dealer 1 to match.

    Feel free to send me a msg if you guys want more help. I'll be happy to show you a copy of my invoice if you don't believe me

    Read thru these boards and educate yourself on buying and pricing. There are no websites that can help you unless you know how and when to buy. Relying on any websites especially true car are useless in the buying game.

    Listen your strategy may work but not at this time of the year with very limited 2013/2014 stock on most of these dealerships lots. Limited stock means dealers dont need your business for that vehicle.. limited 2014 models means honda will not sell at pricing we see now. This is Supply and demand. The uneducated buyer who walks in that dealership will by that car not knowing he is getting ripped off. Thats who these dealers are preying on right now.

    Any one buying up in boston should use this posters as a referral buy.
    all you need is posters 1st name, and first name of person he dealt with for a similar deal of 1550 below invoice on a 2014 model minus the 350 doc fee's.

    Telling any dealership you have a deposit on a vehicle and your calling them for pricing means your lying and that dealership will identify you and play games or simply wont deal with you. The games and tactics you are using are basic and not effective. I think you should read some of my posts to understand buying and how to play the game better.

  • great points. I think I got really lucky with my purchase.

    Good luck to all that are in the market!
    Def. Buy before the month is over.

    Wow. Great price.
  • I hope I did ok. I'm finally ready to leap. I doinked around too long with 2013 and selection became sparse. I could not get anyone to answer me on these forums for some reason but I watched and I read and I went for the 2014 v6 sedan. We settled at 1000 below invoice. 27,500. I'm not sure I want to know if I could have done better. From everything I read I think I did ok.

    Yes, Brian it IS Supply and Demand that determines pricing.

    You stated.." Dealers don't need your business"

    Actually, they DO need your business. They just don't want to cheap sell a car when there is no reason to...remember...Supply and Demand.

    Would you?

    Customers aren't getting "ripped off" nor are they being "prayed on" when they are paying market value for a car or anything else for that matter.

    Finally, you are correct about lying to a dealer. They know when you are lying and they WILL quickly lose respect and interest. I know I sure did.

    All of the "games and tactics" a crafty shopper can pull have been seen many times in the past.

    It really doesn't have to be a miserable, combative experience. It can even be fun as I tried to make it for my customers.
  • as if dealers are pure angels....

    it's just a game and whoever wants the deal the most usually are the ones that loses.

    but in the end it's a two way street. my sales person was very nice and I gave him a great survey. people just need to do their proper research and find a price that they're willing to pay that's all.

    you guys are all right though it's all supply and demand like everything else in this world

    I have a sickening/ but true Car story... i think you can relate to.. Bob buys a 2013 jeep 3 days ago. He walks into the dealership and strikes a deal for 900 above dealers invoice price. The Salesman tells him there is just one jeep left and someone else put a deposit down but cant afford it . Salesman tells bob You can have it i'll even knock off 100 dollars off this already great price i'm giving you. Bob agree's and pays for vehicle plus a 399 doc fee charge. What bob does not know is that same vehicle sells for close to 1700 below invoice right now for a informed/ Educated, savy buyer.

    Dealer would rather sell to poor bob than me especially for my price. This is supply and demand........... Isell this happens every day in the real world. I bet that salesman made bobs buying experience very special and stress free.

    Why would any dealer need my business with limited stock when there are thousands of Bobs buying cars.
    Folks are getting ripped off. Being lazy and not educating themselves on car buying/ pricing means.............. they get what they deserve. I'm happy for the dealerships god bless them. The flip side is the educated buyer who will challenge you on pricing and negotiate just as good if not better than the car people. God bless us. You hate it. Its ripping a hole threw your heart. i can feel your pain with every posting.

    And here is the moral of this story. I know Bob!!!! And so do you.

    Brian Brian Brian - I love ya like a brother man, but what the heck are you saying? That it's the Dealer's fault that Bob went in to buy a vehicle at a price he agreed to? That it's the dealer's fault that Bob didn't do his homework to get the lowest possible price (if he wanted to). That the dealer doesn't have the right to sell a vehicle at a price that is agreeable to both parties? My philosophy is I have a right to negotiate the best price I can and the dealer has a right to sell at a price that makes sense to him/her to stay in business. Most of us on these sites have acquired a great deal of car buying knowledge which helps us get great deals. Where I differ with what you state in your post is I don't think it's the Dealer's fault if an uninformed buyer comes in and buys a vehicle at a price agreeable to both. Now if they use unethical tactics or charge an out of line "doc" fee, hopefully they are exposed and consumers alerted to avoid them.

    I don't think Isell "hates it" or that it's ripping a hole "through" his heart - I think you misjudge him and his intent. I don't hear that in his posts. My 30 years of military experience, 22 as an officer, helped me become a fairly good judge of people (my opinion - don't flame). I don't recall seeing anything but respectful and informative info come from Isell. The good thing is if you don't freaking agree with what he has to say, you can just ignore it and move on.

    Hey, I'll let ya go now so you can go tell Bob about Edmunds and that he should've waited til the last two days of the month (just yanking your chain).

    Take care,
