    I just bought today a 08 honda accord EX V6 w/o the leather seats and navi.By the way this is in New Jersey and I added the deck lid spoiler also.No trade-in car.

    Car base price:$23,900.00
    NJ sales tax:$1,673.00
    Motor Vehicle Tire Fee in NJ:$7.50
    *$1.50 per tire.
    Documentary Fee:$199.00
    Registration/Title Fee:$360.00

    Is this a good deal or not? I bought the car from Paul Miller Honda in West Caldwell. Any inputs will be appreciated, thanks guys. :)

    $18,588 sounds like a great price. Where did you get that price, kep? How much more for a 2008 LX-P A/T?
  • I totally agree, thats why I want to make sure I make an offer that reflects a used car price. Any idea how much would be a good number to tell them?

    Bud, that would piss me off to, you probably delt with the young skinny soft spoken fellow I kow him, he is actually a good chap, he was the one who made the deal happen for me as I moved past the salesman who by the way ok and very helpful.Taking a walk towards the door no mater who you know is always a good thing, keep in mind if you could get the best deal there grab it and run, because as you know you can always get it serviced at any dealer.
    My recommendation is that if you can do without some of the bells and whistles the LXP is more than adequate, I looked at both and based on the spend it was worth it for me especially if you don't spend a ton of time in the car. Best of luck.

    bud foxx
    yeah your'e right that last quote was not good..i just got offered the car for 27,277incl dest + 379 for dmv, plates, fees and 2368 tax. That gets me out of the door at $30024. That's much less than any of my other quotes and my first quote under's hard to say no to this one! I'm thinking about taking it...
  • vietviet Posts: 847
    Cant resist this best deal for sure.
  • theparsthepars Posts: 3
    I believe it's $2500.00 to the dealer through April 30. I had one honest dealer actually tell me that. I got 4 quotes and only one dealer mentioned it.

    I am looking to buy an Accord Coupe

    Thinking of EX-L 4cyl w/o NAV or
    EX-L 6cyl w/o NAV

    Any price informaiton would be really appreciated - THANKS
  • personatechpersonatech Posts: 105
    Is that $2500 kickback applicable to any Accord model or just the EX-L I4? I think I'd be happy with the above, but they have this diamond pearl EX-L V6 on the lot...

    Also, with this $2500 or so going to the dealer, what target price should I negotiate - $1000 under invoice? $1500? I know the dealer and salesmen need to earn a living, but at the same time I need to get rock bottom price in order to afford the car.
  • What is the best purchase price going on an 08 Accord Sedan EXL V6 Automatic with Navigation?

    So far, I can only get Ohio dealers to go about $300 under Edmunds (base + dest) invoice. Is anyone getting better deals?

    Thanks in advance for your help/insight.
  • personatechpersonatech Posts: 105
    I think you also get improved sound deadening and the trunk is lined with the EX. Should be quieter as well as a bit more powerful than the LX.
  • jaxs1jaxs1 Posts: 2,697
    You don't get any extra real sound deadening with the the EX. The trunk liner is more for giving the trunk lid a more finished look than anything else and you may need an EX-L to even get that.
    There is electronic noise cancellation that will very slightly reduce certain frequencies of engine noise, but it will not do anything for road noise such as tires making noise on the freeway.

    If you care about road noise, you should be looking other cars like the Camry and the new Malibu. Lack of noise suppression is one of the worst features of the Accord.
    Many thousands of people are able to live with it, so I'm sure it isn't completely unbearable, but there are much better choices in competing similarly priced cars if you want quietness.

    Just started checking this car out...downsizing from Acura RL when lease ends in July. I have seen indications of prices at or below invoice for Ex-L 4 there any Honda cash back right now or AHFC special financing... Have not found any listed at Edmonds or Honda sites. Some are getting that a local dealer offer?

    Anyone know where I can find this info>

  • jaxs1jaxs1 Posts: 2,697
    No there will not be cash back on a 2008 Accord. Honda does rebates rarely to never and certainly not on a new model in its first few months.
    Honda's incentives are usually dealer incentives and/or special lease and finance rates and I haven't seen anything on the new Accords yet. There will probably be something like that in fall when the 2009s are coming so there will be some incentive to buy a 2008 instead of a 2009.

    I got mine from Grace Honda in the Bay Area. A couple of hundred below invoice and at the time that was the best I could get. Let me know if you want contact info. I was offered several quotes for 28700 at the time from other dealers so your quote is a little too high. 28500 with tint would be a good price to me. If it is the color and trim that you like I personally wouldn't wait much longer for a $200 savings but right at or a little below invoice would be your best bet these days for V6 w/ Navi. Make sure quotes are clear and get all your questions answered before you take a trip to the dealer. Ask about add-ons, mileage, etc. to be sure the quoted price is indeed the price. Good luck.

    It is in a weekly e-mail ad from South Bay Honda in Northern Cal. They didn't mention the LX-P in it.
  • googoolygoogooly Posts: 5
    hey, I got mine Accord Sedan, V6 with Navgiation BlackHawk color automatic. with taxes and everythin 29500 out the door. No extras or anything.. they give u 3 months free XM sathelite which is neat and then XM will give u another 3months for $15. I got it from Hardin Honda, in OC.
    hope this was helpful... just don't forget... sales are down down down and they'll do anything to sell u a car. so ask for the impossible and u might just get it because they are doing really bad! :)
    hope this helped

    Also: When do the 2009's hit the lots?
  • theesirtheesir Posts: 5
    I am interested in a 08 EX-L 4cyl with a 5 speed and there are none to be found anywhere in Buffalo. Are there still cars shipping, or do dealers have their stock at this point to get them through until the new model year?
  • gleen6191gleen6191 Posts: 80
    I got an EXL wqith navi for only 24,350 so i feel you cando much better. is yours an 2008 V6??
  • yes V6 (I modified the post to indicate this)
  • rametramet Posts: 11

    I am in your area. I was excited to see your deal at 21,012 including the 635 destination fee for 2008 Accord EX 4 cylinder. Can you share with me which dealer and your paper work with quotes. I think you got a great deal. If I can get close to that, I would be happy. Thanks for all your help in advance!

    I feel obligated to post my experience as I think I got a good deal following these instructions.
    I just purchased a 2008 I4 Accord Sedan EXL Auto w/ Navi. I had no trade-ins or anything and no previous dealings with the dealer or the sales person. This was a new car, not a demo. The price out the door was $26,300 and they threw in wheel locks. The dealer said they had it on the lot for 60 days and had to move it costs to hold beyond so many days. This is Capital Honda in Okemos, MI (Close to MSU campus)
    Here is the breakdown;
    Base $23,975
    Dest. $635
    Invoice w/ Dest $24,610
    Doc: $180
    Subtotal $24,790
    Tax $1,487
    Title $15
    Transfer Licence $8
    Subtotal $1,510
    Net $26,300 ;)

    Hi Ramet [James]
    Yes, the dealer is Apple Honda in York, PA. Unfortunately, I cannot give you his specific contact information. The quote came from their internet sales section. From what they said when I went in to get it in writing, which I did, was that they were giving me all of their 2% hold back, plus $50 of their $400 dealer sales incentive. I'm sure that there is other money that they get that they weren't telling me about, but they were still the lowest by about $500. Keep in mind that this quote was for a new 2008 Honda Accord EX Sedan with a manual transmission. Their OTD was $22,885.62, which included 6% sales tax, $93.50 in nontaxable fees and $490 in options. There are no admin. or other doc. fees indicated on their written quote. They were a pretty easy going crew. Although I have yet to purchase a vehicle from them [I might wait for a 2008 leftover] I was comfortable working with them. Hope this helps. Post if you have other questions. Later.

    Thanks for the info again. I am working with local dealers in the Philadelphia area for an Accord EX 4dr Sedan 4 cyl with Automatic Transmission. If Sussman or Conicelli can match your deal, I would close on it. If not, I might have to go to your hood. BTW, I think Honda hold back is 3%. I did find info on the $400 dealers sales incentive. I was on Piazza Honda of Drexel Hill's website, they have a page with "2008 Accord Spring Marketing Allowance of $400". I will print that out to show the dealers I am working with to see if we can close the deal faster.

    As far as the $490 in options, what does it include?
    So for your deal in MSRP:
    + 490

    I want find out what the invoice price for the $490 in options are, so I can do the above calculation with invoice to see how much you are below invoice on your deal.

    Can you e-mail or fax me you sheet? If you can, pls get my info from my profile. Thanks again!

  • Kep, I am in the bay area and thinking to buy Accord LX too. Could you email me the email-ad? or could you let me know how I can get such emails?

    Just bought my EX-L I4 AT (no Nav) Coupe here in the Philly suburbs. Made my final purchase at JL Freed. Conicelli worked the hardest. They came in $500 under anyone else. It was a $100 under invoice offer. Gave my local guy (Freed) a chance to match and they did. Conicelli even came back one more time offering another $125, but I think they were bait & switching, as they had no San Marino Red Coupe on their lot.

    From what I found....
    -- Main Line Honda. Will deal but very begrudgingly.
    -- Conicelli. Very aggressive with price & hard sell. Good deal but watch your step.
    -- JL Freed. No pressure, but will make you work for the last few hundred bucks.
    -- Piazza. Was $1000 higher than any other offer.
    -- Sussman. No info. Didn't deal with them.
    -- Keenan. No response to on-line requests.

    I was $25667 OTD at the end.

    For whats its worth, I state dthis some where in one of my replys, Route 22 Honda in Hillside NJ is where I leased my 08 Accord LXP. The sticker price was $22,160 + $635.00 dest.= $22,795, this number was neg to $22,200 inc dest. Included in the car was wheel locks, mud flaps, Enviro /Guard protection for the int/ext,
    Go on line with them.
  • rametramet Posts: 11
    Thanks for the info!
    Can you break your deal out in more details? Price on the car and other fees?
    How you like your new ride?
    Seems like the dealers close by are not as agreesive as Apple Honda at York from yaupon2's deal.

    Anyone got below invoice in the Philly area? I am still waiting for Sussman and Conicelli to get back to me.
