    If your buying a Accord wait til the last 2 days of Dec before you call dealers you will receive the best price. Target at least 10 to 20 dealers if your in a metro area. you will have the best leverage. Make your best deal.. Certain area's wont do as good as others , but you will receive the best deal cause dealers want those numbers in volume sales for end of quarter sales... Good luck and Happy Holidays................

  • Thanks Brian.
    I am in TX. I am looking for LX CVT sedan.
    right now the car price I got is $20586, $339 for Honda protection package (bloody pre-installed), so the OTD is $23369.
    Do you think the price is good enough? or should I wait till the last two days?
    Thank you!
  • Treadwell Honda in Mobile, Alabama, call and talk to Internet sales manager Ron, offer $1000 under invoice and i'm almost sure he will take the offer. After $500 doc fee, you are looking at $500 under invoice plus TTL. You might have a little more room because the MRSP of the V6 Accord is higher. Good luck!
  • Friends, I bought an Accord EXL - 2013 for OTD price of 27,900. I live in Texas (dallas FTW area) and the sales tax is 6.25%. The deal includes the dealer add on of Window Tinting, Wheel Locks, Pin Stripes, Splash guards, Trunk Tray and Nitrogen Tire. I was bargaining with multiple dealers for 27500 and it didn't happen.
    The car is very smooth with quite a lot of features. I love it !!!

    Good Luck to all those who had bought or who are going to buy. Thanks to the forum and wish you all a Happy New Year !!!

    You are at good numbers on the LX cvt,,, wait the last 2 days to make the deal. I would try to get dealer to lower the price of the vehicle some more due to the fact your paying for the protection plan you do not want . The $ 399 plan is full price you would be paying.. Alot of people have gotten that plan thrown into there deal free. Otherwise as your deal stands you do have a really good deal on the table... Let us know how you make out

    Getting ready to purchase a new Honda.
    I am not financing the purchase through dealership or my own bank
    I am writing a personal check; once the check clears, I will pick-up the car
    The dealership requires a photocopy of my driver's license
    As identify theft victim, not interested in doing this
    What is your experience in California?; are there any regulations about this?

    If you pitch your... Here is my offer price for my buisness deal on the last 2 days you will recieve the dealers best price no doubt.. Folks who listen to me have gotten good deals but they bought in the middle of the month.... Some dealers as you have read do not budge and why should they .. They have the leverage and the time to make as much as they could... ... You have to make your best deal at the end of this month, End of next month etc. It is the only way to buy. Do not step foot in any dealerships you call on the phone.. Take your best offers and internet quotes and build on those prices to get your best deal. Remember if your not getting 1000 below dealers invoice the last day its not do-able but 750 below dealers invoice is in alot of area's . Read thru past treads and look for your area and dealerships people have gotten good prices quotes /offers and Negotiate a better price the last day............. Brian

    This is not a uncommon practice most dealerships will make a copy of your drivers license. I would address your concerns to the dealership and see how they will safe guard your personal info.........Brian

  • maverick29,
    $27,900 looks like good price. I live in Austin, TX and dont mind travelling to Dallas. Can you tell me which dealer and sales person you worked with? Would greatly appreciate if you can (IM )send me your OTD bill so that I can try to get the same price.

    Thank you...

    Try Freeman Honda in Dallas. They seem to be selling at below dealers invoice pricing. There are some good consumer reports on pricing in that area..

    I helped my Cousin buy a Honda at Criswell Honda in Maryland last year. Try calling or shooting Internet Manager a Email on dec, 30th. They will give you a no nonse upfront price. Make your offer 1000 below dealers invoice and work up from that price. If he wont go 1k below. there have been posters in and around your area for about 700 below invoice. Shoot me a email at AOL>>>>> if you need help. Say hello to your boys for me. Happy New year my friend.............B

  • bsaru96,

    I had this 27,900 offer from both David McDavid in Irving and Frank Kent in Arlington. I bought from the latter. I am sure they would give for this price till end of this month. Please note that there is a $500 waiver if you finance from Honda. I used that option and plan to refinance later next year. Try the internet route by asking for a quote through Honda or the individual dealers websites. Tell them you will come and buy immediately. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your helpful advice
    You said the buyer should ask the dealer for a buyer's order
    OK, what is that?
    I am in California, and have not heard about that
    Is there a sample of what is included in a buyer's order?
    Thank you

    That is the bill of sale. Letting dealer fax over the paper work. will cut down time spent in the dealership. If your buying by phone.

    WHEN DEALERS FAX YOU A BUYERS ORDER every thing from Vehicle to Options and all Prices are disclosed and calculated. Once you both sign that paper it is a legal document and then you could leave him a refundable credit card deposit to hold/ find and prep your vehicle to you can get into dealership to pick up car..

  • "Norm reeves Honda price for 2013 LX is 21119 and 22645 for the sport...this is from the internet department. Good luck"

    are these OTD prices??
  • "20,995 is the lowest I heard off for 2013 LX at this time of the year."

    is that 21kOTD or 21 excluding ttl?
  • I'll post an extensive message tomorrow, but thanks to this forum, and my own obsessive record keeping and huge spreadsheet, there is a Black EX-L V6 in my garage. Be sure to ask about Honda Financing Flex Cash!

    30860 MSRP
    28292 Invoice
    27692 My Price on the contract
    27192 My Price with $500 flex cash for using Honda Finance (2.49%--which I will payoff after the first month).
    $80 Document Fees are capped in California.

    More tomorrow. Too jazzed to sit still now.

    Honda of Morgan Hill.

  • I've followed suggestions on this forum for a 2013 Accord V6 no nav. What a timesaver! The only open questions concern warranty: Is the MPP Execucare extended warranty ever worth it? Offer was $2000 for 84 months/100k miles Mechanical, and $750 for 60 months Maintenance. My instinct tells me anything they try this hard to sell must be mostly profit. Advice?

    Separately, I have a quote from Hyannis Honda for Hondacare coverage: $945 for 8 years/100k miles, no deductible. Advice?

    I have till tomorrow to decide.
  • did the 21k include all the taxes for VA state? or all the registration and taxes were paid separetly since you bought it from another state?

    Got an EX for $550 under invoice. Got a quote for as low as $800 under invoice, but it wasn't worth the extra 60 miles, and I went with the closer dealer.

    this message for everyone, any help would be greatly appreciated, including brian (very helpful person on this board btw).. i reside in the san francisco bayarea, nor-cal (any locals feel free to join in the convo with any good local dealers). i would lke to buy either

    2013 Honda Accord LX (CVT) or
    2013 Honda Accord (Sports)

    this is for the basic version, no addons. what are some of the best rates people have gotten in other states that shared their prices here. im sure prices can be matched. i looked through the posts, if im not mistaking. i have seen LX CVT, OTD @ 21k and sports OTD at 22k. is that the best so far?

    what you guys think thats what i should be aiming for in terms of OTD prices? keep in mind, the tax here is 8.25% in san mateo county. i read south california has better prices, i wouldnt mind flying out there for a day and drive it back. let me know please. thanks for reading.
  • Hi Brian,

    I just bought an 2013 Accord EX-L V6 with the below extra's from Roseville CA.

    Splash Guard set: $104
    Wheel Locks: $55
    Trunk Tray: $139 with one spare tire.
    Total OOTD price: $30427

    The invoice price for EXL V6 is $28292. But I got for $28000 including the extras as above.
    Also I got free Oil change for 3 years.

    Was that a good deal?

    You are, in effect, paying them cash for the car... That's a large sum of money, and they are required to report it.. No different than if you open a bank account.. they are required to "know" their customer..

    What is it that's on your DL, that isn't on the personal check you are giving them, other than the DL number?

    I understand your concerns, but that is the way the world works, today..

  • I have seen a few people talking about the trunk tray with spare tire option...does the car not include a spare tire? With all of the features they made standard this year, I did not even consider they took things away.

    BTW it is snowing here in MD. If this makes for a slow day at the dealers, I am hoping they will b ready to deal on Monday!
  • Los Angeles Downtown Honda sent me quote for LX CVT for $19439. Will try to make this price as OTD with their finance.
