2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • The 2013 Honda Accord Sport and the Subaru Legacy Premium 2013 have alot in common, but are also different in a few ways.

    Both have: CVT engines, identical price tags, and almost the same gas mileage to name a few.

    Differences: Honda is very sporty with dual exhaust, nice wheels, and LED lights, as compared to the Subaru which is more bland, but has AWD.

    I've narrowed my search to these two vehicles after test driving many cars, but just can not make up my mind. Each have their perks.

    I live in up-state NY where the weather can change for the worst fast. Therefore a safe vehicle is important to me, but I'm young and want to drive a car that will stand out a little. Will winter tires make the Honda just as good as the Subaru in the winter?

    Thoughts on these two vehicles?
  • I have a 2013 Honda Accord LX Automatic. Very smooth CVT and its way better then the CVT in the Altima. Overall drives very well. I do have some issues and don't know if anyone else has had these issues: pulls/drifts to the right and the steering column makes a crackling sound when turning it and on hard turns the column shakes/vibrates.

    Hope this helps.
  • I'm in Midlothian VA and paid 28,635 OTD for a 2013 Accord Ex-L V6.
    The one regret I have about my negotiation process is that I didn't negotiate down from the 2.4% I was offered for financing.
    I also got Honda Care from an online dealership for less than 1/3 what the dealer offered their warranty package for.
  • hondainfinite: Which Honda Dealership did you go to? What was your sale price without TTT&P (tax, tags, title, & processing)? I'm in the market for an EX-L but not a V6 unless I can get a really great deal.
  • What is a great price for 2013 Honda Accord EX Sedan CVT (4 Cylinders) in Southern California? I want to know a good price that includes destination charge? Is $23,800 something I can achieve?
  • I followed some of the suggestions on this forum by listing about 30 dealers in GA, AL and SC. I started about a month ago by getting quotes from each dealers web site, while making offers on others. Some I emailed. All the prices came back not much more than $1200 off MSRP. Finally I got some decent replies last week quoting near Invoice. None of the Atlanta dealers came close. I soon learned that it was better to deal with the dealership that had the car I wanted in the so far hard to find Champagne Frost. On Friday I had a 130 mile away dealer offer $100 over invoice if I came that day. I called our local dealer in W. Central GA to see if they'd match and they did. Not long after we drove the car home, dealer in Columbia SC emailed with a price that would have been about $500 less. I would have driven the 600 mile round trip miles to get it, but it was too late. My wife's car is in the shop and she needed something to drive pretty quick, otherwise I would have haggled toward year-end. If you are persistent, you will definitely find your price. The SC price just for the car was $26,511. I also could have bought an EX-L V6 for Invoice from 2 dealers, one in Alabama and the other from the same dealer in SC.
  • sheldoncped, What dealer did you deal with in Ala and west central GA? Thanks.

  • Traded w/ Carl Gregory in Colbs, GA. AL dealer who had reasonable deal on V6 was McConnell in Montgomery. After about 5 weeks of hammering and probing 3 states, for some reason late Thursday and Friday about 6 dealers came back and were ready to deal on Invoice. The only incentive they maintained existed was the Military $500 discount for which I didn't qualify. I'll be willing to bet there was some dealer incentive that caused them to loosen up. It was just too coincidental to have them all willing to give close to the same deal. The Columbia SC guy seemed to be motivated.....

    HONDA IG,,,, Please post the New Jersey Dealer so others could try to get your deal. If enough people in this forum take the time to email or call several dealerships Internet Managers they will get the best price AND SAVE COUNTLESS HOURS IN SIDE THE DEALERSHIP. The key is your buying right that moment and thats what gives you the leverage. always make your calls the last days of the month.. NEVER ASK DEALERSHIP FOR THERE BEST PRICE. You call them and say for xxx i buy my choice of model for Invoice price or what ever you feel is a good deal. Dont lose your leverage.. Let them counter your offer. The key to getting the best deal is to leave off with meet my price i buy now then move onto next dealership. If dealerships cant give you there best price right there, hang up dont waste your time bad dealership..Buying this way is fast and simply and weeds out all the dealers who play games and dont sell cars.. 70% of the honda dealerships will waste your time with pricing by walking in.. They dont care if you walk out. Supply and Demand play a factor.. The smart buyer buys on line or by phone the last days of the month or at quarters end.. Gotta play the game... Dealers know this.... they will take the quick money Everytime from a smart buyer.. fully knowing more than half the people who walk into dealership they will double there money on mis informed dont know how to buy consumers. These are the facts of the car buying game. The earlier post by True car was right on. If you could save up to 1k or more buying the Accord now and having to drive couple hours to pick up i think its worth keeping that money in your pocket. Good luck...... Pricing on the Accord is lowering... By jan, 2013 many good deals will be had........................................Brian

    This is how i'm negotiating to buy a accord in jan 2013. Weymouth is selling Honda Accords for 498 below invoice. but charging 249 doc fee's. So Weymouth is selling there honda accords for 249 below invoice price. GREAT PRICE. They are a high volume dealer. I already contacted Weymouth Honda spoke with one of the internet mangers. told him i'm up in Boston end of jan 2013 for buiness and will buy from there dealership a 2013 Accord v6 exl with mud guards, wheel locks for 749 below invoice price plus a Deck lid Spoiler at invoice price of $239. Installed on vehicle. Weymouth Honda wont take doc fee's off so i added them onto my below invoice price. I was told this deal would be no problem in Jan 2013. All big dealerships that sell in high volume get big kick backs from the manufactorer for selling more cars.. If you are a good negotiator you will get a good price. This is how you play the game.. I probably will not be anywhere near Boston to buy this car in Janurary but its something to fall back on if i cant pull the trigger on a better deal in new york. I have seen a few post in this forum already for invoice and below in the New York / New Jersey area.. Hope this helps folks. I know just reading peoples post in here on buying is half the battle and makes your buying decision so much easier to do.. ............ Brian

  • The dealer I went to was VIP Honda in north plainfield NJ. Great experience.
    Also, avoid Route 22 honda in Hillside, NJ. Horrible salespeople- waste of time.

    Good luck!

    VIP is a very good Dealership. i have 2 dealings with them. I was set to buy my last honda over at VIP but the day i was ready to buy Autosport Honda in bridgeport, RT 22 left me a message on my cell that he had the car i wanted and would do my price plus it had mud guards, and 2 extra's on the vehicle he was throwing in.. It was a no brainer. I called him back and secured the car with a credit card deposit.. picked it up the next day. i also have purchased from paul miller honda very good.......... tks for sharing............. brian

    Many years ago, Car and Driver had an article comparing AWD with seasonal tires to FWD and RWD with snow tires.
    I didn't get a Legacy because it didn't do as well on some of the crash tests as some other mid-size cars but I would suggest reading the reviews at Car and Driver, Motor Trend and Road and Track when it was last re-designed.

    After dealing with 12 Honda dealerships in the tri-state area, finally located one that gave me a great price with no gimmicks.

    Dealer is in Paramus, NJ ;)

    $22650 before TTL.

    With NYC taxes (8.875%) and TL, OTD price was $25300.

    Forgot to ask you Honda ig ..... what was VIP"s Doc fee's, and any other OTD fee's? tks

    2016 BMW X-5 35i, 2013 Genesis 5.0 R-spec, 2012 MB ML350

  • Doc fee was $379 and registration fee $240
  • gee22gee22 Posts: 82
    I should have mentioned in my earlier response that I ended up with a Camry but the real life accident data from the Highway Loss Data Institute shows that the Legacy is one best in regards to medical claims while my 2010 Camry was one of the worst, which is why you won't find me in the Camry forum :)
  • How much was your HondaCare? I have a 13 Accord EXL w/Navi. I'm looking into getting HondaCare due to the new technology. What is the dealers website? I want to see how much they want for the 7yr 1000,00 mi. zero deductible HondaCare.

  • For those who live in or near the area, you may want to consider Avery Greene Honda. They claim to beat ANY competitor's written quote.
    I bought a 2013 Honda Accord LX with splash (mud) guards, door edge trim and wheel lock.

    Price: $20,625
    Doc processing charge: $80
    Tax (8.375%): $1,734.04
    License: $157
    Registration: $70
    CA Tire fees: $8.75
    Smog abatement fee: $20
    Total: $22,713.39

    Although I live over an hour drive away, I went with them for several reasons. 1) The lowest price I have been quoted. 2) James was very nice. He worked with me instead of against me. 3) I'm financing through PenFed at 1.49% for 60 months. However, I will be paying 0.99% for 60 months since Avery Greene Honda is part of PenFed's Car Buying Program. I could have received 0.49% if I would have gone with the 48 months plan. Honda offered me a 2.49% APR for 60 months.

    I know the price will go down in December or January. I will feel really bad if the price will go down within a week or so.

    I'm not too proud of this when I research after I have bought it: Karr Alarm. I paid $399 + tax.

    Price wise, I hope this help someone. I will write a review about them at local places later since they are awesome and worth the praises.

    DMV Fees - 208.50
    Dealer Fee - 699.00

    I did a compare of College Hills Honda and the dealer I purchased from using Amazon. The shipping was almost the same.

    Amazon / College Hills

    1. All Season Floor Mats $100.00 / $104.48
    2. Splash Guards $70.00 / $69.60
    3. Trunk Tray $90.00 / $97.20
    4. Cargo Net $38.00 / $36.00

    So as you can see, you may want to go with HONDAKING143 at Amazon or Ebay. d-sedan-exterior-accessories.htm
  • Hello Zonecar,

    I am about to go to Rock Honda to get a 2013 Sport Accord and get the same
    quote of $22150. Question to you is did they try to sell you accessories/equipment + their financing ? or just $22150 + TTL= $24160 like yours. I have to drive 2 hrs to get there, so just wanted to make sure I get all the scoops. thanks
  • jdp6jdp6 Posts: 8
    So far so good. It is pretty smooth and compared to my old car (1998 Avalon that you could here from a mile away) it is not noisy at all. My only slight issue is that it isn't that fast. It doesn't burst like other cars.

    I have been eagerly waiting to purchase a 2013 Honda Accord Manual Transmission (LX or Sport) sedan, but none of the dealers in Phoenix, AZ appear to have one in stock (nor in the near distant future). Has anyone purchased a 2013 Accord Manual Transmission? Is Honda building only CVTs? Is MT sedan only available via special order? Any insights are appreciated. Best regards.
