2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Hello, first time poster but have been reading this forum for a couple months.

    I've emailed most of the dealerships in the baltimore area for quotes on a 09 EX automatic coupe. The best quote I've received was for:

    $20,399 base with wheel locks and splash guards included.
    $1224 MD tax(6%)
    $670 Freight
    $222 Tags
    $99 Dealer Processing fee

    $22,614 OTD

    Is this a good deal? Anyone else get anything similar or better for an ex coupe automatic? Thanks!
  • Wow, fantastic deal! I've been shopping here in St. Louis and am getting quotes in the $23,100 range (including the destination) before TTL and doc fees. What were your original quotes at? I know you said you did very little haggling. I'm wondering if I can get them much lower than the quotes I have. It's already about $700 below invoice.

    Thanks hac90! Do you mind posting the name of he person you dealt with? I'm in Vienna but could easily run down to Woodbridge. That's a great price. Just reply to this message and I'll get your response forwarded to my email. Thanks in advance!
  • yes, price I quoted is before taxes and tags. Good luck with your search!

    Just bought Accord 09 EX-L V6 without navy with heated seats, etc (like XM Satellite Radio)
    for 25988
    +2176 NYC tax
    +12.50 NYS waste tire fee
    +210 new plates and NYS Inspection
    Total 28386.5
    remember - it is 09 EX-L V6, it is $110 above invoice but without destination fee.
  • I learned a tremendous amount reading through this forum! I used mainly email contact with several dealers throughout Arkansas. Although some did not respond, I found the majority did. In the interest of the collective knowledge base, here are the details of my deal.

    2009 Accord Sedan, Black/Black (ooooh it looks sharp!) EX-L 4 cyl. auto with Navi: $25,300.00.
    Adds: Trunk mat, all weather floor mats, splash guards, wind deflector, wheel locks and lifetime guaranteed window tint: $514.00.

    In Arkansas we pay sales tax when the car is registered, it's not collected through the dealer. So my OTD price was $25,814.00

    Hope this helps. Thanks and Happy New Year!
  • Hi, I just bought 2009 Accord EXL V6 with an OTD of $26,600. I got a lot of helpful information from this board, so I wanted to contribute some to this board too, hope it can be some of help to others.

    it breaks down to following (according to dealer's paper):

    Purchase Price: 24770,75 (including destination fee)

    Wish you all have a happy new year!
  • Thanks jb turner.
    As you said "Very good deal..the best Iv seen is $27755 OTD for 09 V6 EXL Navi ".
    If you don't mind, please break down the price so I can talk to the dealer.
    Thanks again, Happy New Year!
  • sorry, I forgot to mention that this one doesn't have navigation system and the local tax rate is 6% at maryland.
  • Hello all. I just started looking around for the above mentioned car and am wondering how much dealers are willing to come off sticker in these hard times. The sales guy I visited here in Charlotte said maybe $2,000. That seemed a bit low since it seems to be a buyers market right now. With the incentives going on now does $24,500 + TTl seem too low??? Sticker is $29,300. thanks.

    I've been reading here as a guest for a week or so. Got a lot of great info so I thought I would sign up and return the favor.

    Just got home from buying a new 09 EX-L V6. No navigation. I got the splash guards installed in the deal. I actually passed up my very best offer to buy local. I could've saved $100 more dollars if I would've drove 40 minutes one way, but I would rather buy in town than drive out of town to save $100. Anyway, hope this helps. Here's the breakdown.

    Car Price: $25,100
    Tax: 3%: $753 (North Carolina)
    Fees: $299 + $99 + $69 (not sure what the fees are called exactly)

    Total Out the Door: $26,320 They also threw in a $100 gift card to Target. There's always something to buy at Target so I really consider this an extra $100 off the car in a way.

    There might be better deals out there, but I am satisfied and I was able to keep my business local. Hope this helps.

    I just posted right below you. We just bought a new Accord in North Carolina today. Take a look a the breakdown in my post above. I had two dealerships competing and I really think I got CLOSE to bottom. Not sure about that, but the dealership that is known for giving the best deals around here finally gave up. They actually offered me the best deal by $100, but I would rather buy local that drive out of town to save $100.

    My out the door price for an 09 EX-L V6 without NAV was 26,320. I also got the splash guards installed for that price. They also threw in a $100 gift card to Target. So I look at that as a $100 bill in a way. Hope this helps.

    Just purchased an Accord LX 09 automatic for $19,141.36 plus tax ($1285) and tags ($210.15) in eastern PA. Took alot of emailing and last minute phone calls to get this price. One salesman at the the local dealership told us that they could not match this price, but then we called their internet sales department and they were able to match that price. Probably the end of month and end of year deadlines helped. We financed at 1.9% for 3 years.

    Lesson learned - We purchased the gap coverage and honda care extended warranty, as we were told we can cancel within 30 days. I hadn't thought to research them ahead of time, but are now planning to cancel them after doing some more research online and finding the warranty for more than a $1000 less ($755 online versus ~$1950 through dealer). The warranty was interesting in that they said they would refund the warranty cost if we had no claims on it. We should be able to get our money back, but because we financed it the refund will go towards the loan - our monthly payments will stay the same but we'll pay off the loan quicker.

    I learned alot from this forum. Thank you!
  • Purchased 09 Accord LX AT for $20627 OTD plus $28 for doc fees for financing. I got 1.9% APR for 36 months. This is in Florida (6% sales tax). I was negotiating with around 8 dealers over the email, negotiated the price online and got everything in writing before I went to make the purchase. The $28 doc fee was a surprise, since the dealer never mentioned it and it wasn't included in the OTD price somehow. But apart from that, not a bad experience. Be prepared to send a lot of emails though, if you go this route!
  • I live in western Loudoun county in VA and wanted to purchase as close to home as possible. After sending out e-mail requests, I ended up negotiationg between two dealers. Leesburg Honda in Leesburg and Criswell Honda in Germantown.

    The best deals I have received via e-mail and validated via phone conversations yesterday are from Criswell. The only other additions are for $670 freight and $100 dealer prep/admin fee:

    2009 LX-P $19,000
    2009 EX $20,500
    2009 EX-L w/ Nav I4 $24,300
    2009 EX-L w/ Nav V6 $26,400

    I wanted to purchase from Leesburg because they are closer, but he wouldn't budge off his price saying he needed to make 'some' money on the deal. I figured if one dealer could do it, shouldn't another? I have an appointment to purchase at that price tomorrow (Jan 2nd) with Criswell. I will decide between the EX-L w/ Nav models once I drive them both again.

    Any suggestions or comments on the I4 vs V6? Price vs. performance?

  • jwmsjwms Posts: 6
    Did your price from Criswell for the EX-LV 6 with Nav include the 3% VA state tax? I ask becuase I am looking for a EX LV6 as well.

    thanks in advance for the follow-up.
  • ral2167ral2167 ohioPosts: 723
    go with the I4..plenty of power
  • No. The prices didn't include the freight ($670), dealer prep ($100) or TTL.

    Let me know if anyone has any better pricing. I still can't believe Leesburg wouldn't match; a little bummed, but I guess I'll purchase from Criswell tomorrow.

    We had a strange situation where the salesman I had worked with wouldn't match a lower price from elsewhere, and so we were prepared to drive an hour to get the best price. As a last ditch option, my husband (who has a different last name than me, not sure if that made a difference) called and asked for their internet sales department, told them we were about to go buy the car from another dealer and could they match the price, and that salesperson said yes, we can do that. It was a little awkward when we got to the showroom and the ran into the first salesman, but I didn't worry about it too much as we had given him the opportunity to match the price and he said he couldn't.

    So, it might be worth it to call the local dealership one last time. Good luck with your purchase!

    I'm having a hard time finding the car I want in my local dealerships. I want the cherry red, light interior w/wood, 4 door, E XL WITH Navi. I live in El Paso TX & I've called las cruces NM & it's not in stock.

    Does anyone know of how I could figure out what dealership does have it? Ideally, i'd like to see/drive before i sign for it.

    Also, I'd like to see a Prices Paid discussion on this exact car. Most discussions are for the e xl w/out navi or the e xl v6 with navi, neither is the one i want. THANKS!
  • I helped my sister buy a 09 EX-L 4 cyl. today, Jan 1st in Greenville, SC for 24,350 otd. South Carolina sales tax is capped at $300, a new tag is about $35-40, so that's roughly $24,000 for the car.

    Had 2 internet quotes for 24,400 from local dealerships. Sis is happy. Too bad we couldn't get there before the end of business 12/31/08 as the quote was $23,900 otd, everything included. :cry: It was really too late by the time we got the info and she really had not decided between the Altima and the Accord, nor if she was ready to buy NOW until she saw the Accord and drove it today. Still a good deal though....everyone is happy. If we had acted earlier in December and had a little more time to shop around, we might have squeezed a few more nickels and found someone to match the original price (or better) but we had time constraints with work schedules and incentives about to expire in a few days. I was very pleased with the staff at Breakaway Honda. Hope this helps someone in the Carolinas and Ga region....

    This is my first real world experience with going through the internet department and I must say that it is certainly the way to go for a quick no hassle experience.

    Happy New Year!
  • I'm new to the forums as well, and have been reading for a couple months as well. I'm in the South Jersey area and looking for a 09 EX AT Coupe too. I called around to most of the local dealers and have not got any quotes nearly as good as $22,614 OTD. I've been waitng around to try to get a dealer down to $24000 OTD.

    Would you mind sharing the dealership name? I would actually be willing to drive down to Baltimore for that price. It's a good deal. Thanks.
  • Jfhouchens,

    I got a quote from Ourisman Honda in Bethesda, MD and I am still negotiating the best deal. Here is the quote:

    2009 Honda Accord EXL V6 Navigation Sedan

    Selling Price: $25995.00

    $100 Processing Fee (Virginia Dealers charge $289-$399 or more)
    $670 Destination
    Sales Tax (Maryland is 6%, D.C. is 6% or 7%, and Virginia is 4%)
    *Virginia Dealers charge 3.20% if you are a Virginia resident
    Tags, Title and Registration

    OTD price is $28,610.40 for MD

    Good Luck and post the break down price you got.

    Happy New Year!
  • You can do a search on Ebay for "2009 Accord" and you will see actual pictures of a red sedan with tan leather. Sorry, no nav on these but there are other ones pictured that do have the nav system. I am guessing here, but it sounds like you may be looking for a needle in a haystack if the red/tan/nav is a must have. A good dealer will be glad to look around for one to do a "dealer trade/swap" with in your region. Or, they might be able to see if one is in the production pipeline that they can have re-routed to their dealership for you. good luck

    BTW, the red color on the 4 door sedan is more burgundy than "cherry" red. (basque red pearl) The 2 door coupe red is more like fire engine red. (san marino red) Two entirely different colors!
  • I'd like to chime in on the I4 vs V6...I drove them both...4X in fact, and I can honestly say that the 4cyl does have enough power and gets great gas mileage. BUT, the V6 was quieter at cruising speed and has a nice growl to it when you stand on the gas. The mileage is just 1 or 2 mpg less so not really a penalty there. I went the V6 route. It also seemed to have a better ride. Bottom line, performance is up to the driver. My fiance told me I didn't need the V6...until she drove it. So go forth an drive! City, Highway, cruise, mash the gas, the two cars drive very different! End of story..more to come on my deal soon....

    Happy New Year!

    Does anybody know if Honda will continue their $750 cash back to dealers on Accords in Jan.?
  • e419e419 Posts: 8
    one of the dealers that I got quotes from said it is only until January 5th. Not sure if that's accurate though, or if they're just trying to rush me into buying.

    I took delivery on my Accord EXL V6 in mid-Dec 2007 and paid indicated dealer invoice plus tax and destination. I used a local dealer's Internet buying salesperson. Three months later the same dealer sent me an E-Mail that I could get $500 off the invoice price of any car in stock.

    My car was factory ordered right off of the truck and the dealer did not require me to pay for any extra dealer add ons. One dealer tried to tell me that I could not get a car as it comes from the factory. I would have to take a car in stock either from that dealer or have him get one in my color from another dealer, and since dealers automatically add extra stuff such as pin stripes, mud flaps, door edge guards, etc. I would have to pay for them. I told that dealer to take a hike and went to another one in the Baltimore Area and got exactly what I wanted w/o any dealer add ons. That dealer was Anderson Honda in Baltimore. An honest dealer from whom I would buy another car in a minute. It is nice to know there are come class dealers out there.

    In the car market today I believe that you should be able to get a an 09 Honda Accord for about $500 below dealer invoice or perhaps lower. Also I was able to get the extended 84 month 120,000 mile non-deductible warranty for $1099. The list price of this is usually $1999.

    The car market is dead now. If you are in the market for a new car there are all sorts of deals out there. Don't take the first offer unless you have done your homework and know what the possible prices are.

    Also I was able to get the extended 84 month 120,000 mile non-deductible warranty for $1099. The list price of this is usually $1999.

    Is that the Honda backed warranty or one of those 3rd part after market ones?

    09 Accord EX-L sedan 4 cyl , no navigation, navy blue

    I spoke to five other Honda dealers and none could touch this deal. One sales guy told me that the Internet Sales people get a $50 flat fee commission for each car they sell, so maybe they have more room to discount versus the traditional showroom salesperson whose commission is based on the price of the car.

    Base price: $21,800 (she said it was $22,850 minus $750 rebate minus $300 coupon, neither of which I had to bring in or fill out. According to Edmunds, dealer invoice is $23,780, but we all know that's a bit of fiction). Dealer appearance package (at no extra charge) included splash guards, wheel locks, pin stripe, door edge guard, which is the most complete dealer package I found in the DC area.

    Freight: $670 (all the Honda dealers I checked with around here charge the same amount)
    Side moldings: $268
    "Total price of vehicle": $22,738
    VA taxes: $721.40
    Processing: $399
    Tags: $48.75

    OTD: $23,907.15

    We got the 1.9% Honda finance deal for 36 months.

    This is exactly the same deal (and from the same dealer) as hac09 posted on 12/29/08 at 6:48pm, except I added the side moldings. And I'll concur with his assessment of the dealer: the Internet Sales person was super nice, no BS, and I also spoke to her manager and a couple of her colleagues and they were all very professional. This morning, the transaction took a little over two hours, only because they didn't have the color I wanted and they had to go get the car from another dealer about forty minutes away. Otherwise we would have been done in a little more than an hour.
