    I am interested in buying a 2013 accord ex -l v6 w /navi. I have been quoted $34, 439.00 out the door. Personally I thought it was too much, what do you guys think. Anyone buy this model yet and at what price? Also wondering about the out the door price of the touring model.

    What state are you in? Can u break up your quote? Do u get any options there? if you're in NY with sales tax rate at 8.875 - that brings down your price before taxes to 31631 - which is a reap off even for NY - even though there is a big demand for all type of cars after Sandy. Hard to say what kind of options you get or dealership fees are there.
  • As a matter of fact yes I am in NY, I was quoted from two different dealerships 1 gave me $30,600 with destination only. The second gave me $33,439 out the door. The second quote sounded too much and the first one after Attlee would pretty much be the same price. The didn't even throw anything in the car for that price. Personally I thought that was too much, that is why I hoped someone else bought this model and at what price.

    Invoice price on any model is very do able if you live on east coast. YOU should make that your buying point and not 1 dollar over that amount.. read thru prior post. The model of car you choose wont change the price to buy at invoice.. There are several post from N.Y. and N.J that bought at Invoice price and below. Forget those other 2 dealerships they want to rip you off.. read my prior posts to get a idea of how to buy by phone or online. just give a yell if you need help there are alot of people in this forum that will guide you..................... check out post from vip honda in n.j. selling below invoice but have high doc fee's.. good luck... brian

  • Hey Brian,
    Thanks for the advice. I am in NYC, and looking for 13'exlv6. I am ready to buy, (lease) but am waiting for the prices to settle. But here is the thing, with the storm totaling so many cars here, (my sister lost 2) the demand might keep the prices high for a while. I have a 03'exlv6 that is in great shape, so I can wait a while, but if the demand for cars picks up, maybe now is the time to start the process. Would love invoice price!! I am sure a lot of us here in the tri-state area are thinking the same thing.
  • We just bought a White EX-L 4 cyl from Hennessy Honda in Woodstock, GA (Atlanta) for $26,179. The OTD price was $28,798 (included 7% sales tax). We used the USAA car buying service and they dealership honored the pricing , no problem. We felt like we got a good deal after shopping other Atlanta dealers for about a week. USAA pricing is very similar to TrueCar Pricing.

    They even thru in a trunk liner and mud guards. We were happy with the buying experience at Hennessy as well as the beautiful new Honda Accord.
  • You should be able to get $23,800.00. I would go with Hardin Honda and ask for the manager and talk to him directly. Power Honda of Costa Mesa is great as well.

    Max power, good point with the aftermath of sandy over here. the better dealerships will still deal but and i'm sure there will be alot of dealers trying to capitalize on our disaster. Supply and demand factor. If your going to lease same rule applies get your lowest price 1st then work your lease numbers off that price. tell every dealer 500 below invoice gets it done. At worst case lease car for invoice price its do- able now... good luck

  • To high of a price. $30,035 invoice for that car in chesapeake VA with no accessories.

    In regards to the dealership that quoted me $30,600, that is over invoice by around $500 and change. Also I forgot to mention that I had bought two cars from that dealership from them in the past 12 years. When I said that he said he would waiver the destination charge. So in that case the invoice price of the car now becomes $29,3xx.00. He wasn't quoting me invoice at that point he was charging me above invoice and destination which is $30,116.00.
    As far as the touring model it is about $1360.00 more than the exl v6 w /navi. One could argue at that price difference why not get the touring?
  • So I've got an internet quote for an exl v6 honda accord of $28,631 in southwest Virginia. This includes the $790 destination fee and is about $50 above invoice, no options. The only change to OTD price would be VA sales tax of 3%, so about $29,500 out the door.

    Is this a good deal?

  • You beat my OTD by $402. We also got the mud guards and pin stripes. It seems prices are settling down to below invoice right now. I got a quote from Hennessey but it was ridiculouslly high, so I never got down to the nitty-gritties with them. I wanted to wait on our purchase, but our old car is still in the shop for a new transmission. So it was either rent a car for a few weeks, strand the wife and really make her p'oed. I chose to stay out of the dog house. Our son will be 16 in a couple of weeks, so he will now be the new "cool" driver of the old soccer mom mini van for a while.

    Plaza Honda in Brooklyn doesn't honor loyal customers, I bought my first car 4 years ago and they treat me like a bag of money, what ever were in the past is in the past - that's their approach.
  • I just want to share. I bought the 2013 Accord Sedan EX-L with wheel locks as the accessory.
    Silver and black interior.

    Base price $26,300 (destination fee included)
    Dealer document fee $80 (taxable)
    California tax (8.25%) $2,176.35
    Electronic vehicle registration or transfer charge $15.5 (dealer's fee, but non-taxable)
    DMV registration, license, & misc. fees $279.75
    Total out the door $28,851.60

    This car is from Honda of Serramonte, Daly City, CA. I hope this help the future buyers!

    Great price, Basically invoice pricing. Looking for an EX 4cyl CVT myself but i want to pay at least $500 BELOW invoice ($22700). No rush to get it right now so i am willing to wait at least 3 months. With the Camry's seemingly unstoppable sales run, Honda dealers will see the light shortly and start going below invoice.

    Honda dealer is offering a $146 per month lease (36 months) on the Accord LX 2013 Sedan with CVT. Any thoughts as to whether Honda will follow up with aggressive lease pricing on the 2013 Accord V-6 that may result in a $250 per month lease price? Is Honda publicizing any hidden rebates/holdbacks that result in low lease price?
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 5,180
    FX.................. you are dead on with pricing...Time is on your side.. Consumer Reports is know saying the 2013 Camry is back on top as the best car in class. I think the Toyota corp. is in bed with consumer reports. Waiting to see how they rate the new Accord..... The Nissan Altima did not get a great write up this month in the consumers Report issue . I was surprised. the Altima's are selling as much as 1800 below invoice. You know Toyota does not sell like The Honda people with there pricing. I would say by Feb or March 2013 Honda will have had there run with gouging there prices and be in a numbers fight with Toyota, Nissan and Kia. If your a good Negotiator by December you could get well below invoice price. There are post now showing up to 300 below invoice. just have to remember if your not persisted those doc fee's of 300 bring you back to invoice . just say no its a deal breaker OR ADD THAT 300 DOC FEE TO YOUR BELOW INVOICE PRICE. time is on your side if you can wait to purchase.

  • ceejay,
    That sounds like a really good internet quote for including destination fee. Are you sure the 28,631 includes the destination fee? and this is a 2013 Accord EXL V6?
    If this is all true let me know the dealership name because I would like to send them my bottom line price quote. I have searched around the DC and Hampton roads area for the 2013 Accord EXL V6 and the best I have received so far was $30,030.00 to include a destination fee of 790.00. Then you would have to add on any options, 3%VA sales tax, processing fee, and tags. Processing fees here in Chesapeak are avertised at $599 but I think that can be negotiated a little.
  • Ceejay, sorry I mis spoke from the last reply to you. The price quote was for a 2013 Accord EXL V6 W/NAV not a 2013 Accord EXL V6. The best quote I have received so far is $30,030.00 to include destination fee. This was from one dealer in the DC and Hampton roads area. That is why I questioned your internet qoute for the EXL V6. Ithout your quote included a NAV unit in the car.
  • Was quoted 26888 OTD for an EX, is this good? Sales also told me they installed a protection package on the car already which worth about 999. He said all Honda dealers pre install this on all new cars. This was at Southbay Honda in Milpitas, CA. Please advise.

    Am looking to lease 13 Accord in Chicago. What does Residual Value of .00155 mean?

    Does a 4 or a 6 have better residual value?

    Want to lease for 24 or 36 months, and can put down downpayment.

    What else do I need to understand to make a decision?

    Thx for any input.

    Juan, let me try and help you understand leasing. Same rule applies with buying or leasing. Always work your lowest price for said vehicle. Your money factor, and residual value is what the car is worth for that time frame of 3 or 4 years , and what the value of said vehicle will be after lease period. Go to Edmunds leasing forum for Accord and ask the Car-man for the numbers on your make, model, lease period , and mileage you want. This is the formula for leasing. I dont like to lease but thses rules set the price. Once you have your leasing numbers make sure the dealership you buy works those same numbers for your monthly price......

  • low end models (LX, Sport) will have much better residuals than the 6. Reason is because the V6's do not sell nearly as much
  • Good luck with getting "below" invoice. They are not even letting employees buy the new Accords for under invoice. And Camry's alleged "unstoppable" sales are tanking. I stopped by the Toyota dealership in my town and their sales manager was griping about how ever since the 13 Accords were announced their typical Camry sales numbers have dropped to less than 50% of usual sales volumes, and that Toyota Motors had to institute several thousands of dollars in cash incentives to "whore them out".

    If you understand anything about how cars are sold you would know that not a single dealership anywhere will sell a newly re-designed vehicle for UNDER invoice without factory incentives or without bending you over backwards in the back end.

    You can wait your 3 months, and then you will continue to wait because as the 2012 CR-V's are any indication, they just NOW started discounting them anywhere close to invoice almost a full year after it was released.

    Please, save yourself the embarrassment, go to, go see the pricing of what they are selling for in your market, then slap yourself for even thinking you can get $500 under invoice, including destination. BTW, the three Honda Dealerships within 10 miles of my house have no problems selling them at MSRP...or $500 off might want to wait until the 2014's come out to receive a significant discount.

    Happy hunting
  • I am in the Dallas area. I am seeing (in autotrader) Huggins Honda advertising $19715 for 2013 Accord LX CVT and David McDavid of Frisco advertising $19999 for the same. So looks like they are below invoice.
  • And David McDavid of Frisco just lowered their price to $19599.
  • Going lease shopping this weekend for a 13'exlv6....quick the money factor (now.00155) and residual value (now 58%) negotiable?

    I am guessing that the residual value is not..but the money factor which is 3.72% (.00155x2400), is high, I have excellent credit, so can I try to negotiate the MF number, or am I wasting my time? I know, negotiate the best price for the car..then go from there, but do dealers use other leasing companies, for better rates or just Honda Financing? Any help will be appreciated.
  • I got a quote on the 2013 Accord EX-L and I was curious if this was a good deal. Keep in mind that I live in an area where there is no competition and these cars are flying off the lot!
    Car Price includes dest fee: $26,985.
    Doc Fee $85
    Sales Tax of $1554
    Total OTD Price of $28,624
