    made the purchase this Sat. the dealership is in MD close to DC area, but i register in VA( that's why tax for purchase car 3%)

    OTD 21350 (didnt add anything additional, very very basic LX)

    is this good deal?

    first thought i feel its very good deal, but now i feel actually its just an OK deal...any thoughts?

    You should share the Dealership and State you purchased so other forum members could decide if you recieved a good deal.

  • oh, the dealership is in MD area, but i register in VA( that's why tax for purchase car 3%)
  • can you give us the exact breakdown of the price + dest, all the fees, etc.

    Please share the dealer's name as it seems a good price over all, thanks and enjoy your ride.
  • 2013 Honda Accord Sport $22,500, plus $75.00 doc fee and plsu TTL, could not get them to budge any lower or throw in any accessories, not even $36 wheel locks. I can not for the life of me see how others got some of the deals they were discussing on this forum, some saying as little as 20,922, 21,700, 22150, etc....these are all prices including doc fees and destination charges. 20,922 seems impossible, but 21,700 does not seem credible either. I can't fathom that someone purchased this car for over $1,600 less then my price which is already at 400 under invoice with $75 doc fee. This is at Paragon Honda by the way. Salesman said "I promise you the price won't go lower on the last day of the month" Any comments/suggestions/opinions?

    I requested a couple of email quotes from a few dealers today. to see what the area pricing is at the moment.. Paragon gave me a quote Online for $ 507 below invoice. I asked for a EXL v-6 model. I would think if your buying a Sport dealers have less on there lots and there for are not willing to give as much off as the other models. Once again you have to stop dealing with the salesman. Do your leg work online speaking with dealerships internet dept. I prefer to talk directly with the manager. Auto sports quote was $601 below.

    Are you talking about a manual or a CVT. In any case, that sounds like a good price on a great car.

    Don't get too tied up on matching prices elsewhere that might not even be real.

    My 2 cents: Once you get a good deal on a great car, then go home happy and drive the heck out of the car.
  • Your MO price looks great! last month I got the EX-L I4 no nav for $25840, incl dest., dealer/doc fees & some add ons (mud flaps, striping, nitrogen, wheel locks & wheel well trim), plus TTL, in FL. I've seen maybe 2 or 3 prices that have beaten mine, but I'm uncertain if any have beaten yours. I'd jump on it! Helluva deal!
  • Sorry that was for a 2013 Accord Sport CVT (Auto Transmission), of which the salesperson said there were few left. No accessories, I can buy them from collegehillshonda online

    title etc 135.5

    OTD 21350

    I feel its just an OK price, may have few hundreds room lower...but i have already closed the thoughts?

    Don't believe them - buy at end of month for best deals. go to 4-5 dealers in one day and tell them you will buy in the next 2 days for the best price. I beat Smithtown, Babylon Levittown price by over 1000 on my '10 accord coupe. Try Huntington @ end of month. Better in my pocket than some or his manager. BTW - don't let them waste your time - just cut to the chase and get to the bottom line. They try to were you out!
    Good luck

    I am planning to buy Accord CVT sport this weekend. I am in Dover, NH and this is my first car.
    After negotiating with a few dealers in area, I have got an OTD price from a dealer as $22,000 (car Price)+ $247 (dealer admin fee)
    i.e. $22,247 in total.
    Is this a good price, as factory invoice is $22,929?
    Shall I go for $22,247?

    Jan 22, 2013
    pls know if its a good deal

    I have these 1 quotes which is best of almost 9 quotes

    $25,600 (includes Dest) + 499 doc + 8.1% tax + Title etc

    I searched this forum and did not find EX-L I4 No Nav prices in Jan, after the year end deals.

    Is this a good price, or should I wait till the month end ?

    Thanks for posting BEFORE you made a deal!
    what state are you in? Doc fee seems high to me;
    Price is similar to weymouth:

    Doc fee reference info by state: lership-what-is-the-doc-fee/#comment-53152

    Good luck...
  • IMHO, Is very good as I saw a similar price at the end of last month in MD too. I think he paid more due to his tax rate being 6% but considering that this car just came out and all is a very good price, so be happy u did well. Down the road there will be better prices but for now if not the best on an lx is very very close.

    Please share the dealer's name and location thanks and enjoy.
  • Does anybody knows what is weymouth's doc fees? Thanks

    Suggest you check with your accountant. States have Sales and Use Taxes. I would think that the out of state dealer would not charge you any sales tax and you would pay a use tax to your state when you register the car. Can't believe MO would forgo their tax.

    Most Out of State dealers will add your States sales tax rate on the buyers order. i buy alot of cars out of state from N.Y.

    Weymouth honda doc fee's are $239 they wont remove fee's

  • Just curious Brian, is this Weymouth dealer some sort of "Fitzmall" Version of Honda? Where there is no room to negotiate and they give u a decent price without the haggle and hassle, thanks.

    Thanks for the responses.

    The Department collects taxes when an applicant applies for title on a motor vehicle regardless of the purchase date, as follows:
    Unit sold by a Missouri dealer – state sales tax and local sales tax.
    Unit sold by an out-of-state dealer or by any individual (whether a Missouri or out-of-state individual) – state use tax and local option use tax if the applicant's city or county imposes a local option use tax. The sale of the unit is not subject to local sales tax.
    State tax is 4.225% - have to pay for any dealer.
    Local tax is 2.7%, is not imposed by my county for out of state dealer. Saving of $675 on $25000.
    I checked with the DMV in person and confirmed this part.
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 4,888
    Yes. The 2 best dealerships on the East Coast as far as pricing are Weymouth. and Anderson in M.D. Dealerships like these might knock off a few more dollars off there already lowest price. I Plan on finding out this month, The smaller guy can sweeten the deal by throwing in some extra's to keep you from traveling.. Its all a matter of preference.

    All the other dealerships in between may come within 400 or 500 hundred but from what ive been reading on this board with dealers high doc fee's nobody seems to be getting a better price than the big 2 are quoting online hassle fee.

    So are you willing to travel 3 or 4 hours to save 500 maybe more .. Is it worth it. what do you think.

    If that is the case you should never buy another car in your state . How about on your personal income tax did you check into that???.. New york is to slick for that. Good job on that posting

    22,000 for an Accord Sport CVT?! That's almost 3k off list?!

    Awesome price. Buy it.

    Hope I can do that well.
  • benjaminhbenjaminh Posts: 2,906
    Imho that's a good price on an all-new car that's getting rave reviews.

    My 2 cents: buy it, and don't worry if somewhere someone got it for a little less.

    I,m in NJ and got an email today from a dealership stating theyould get me out the door for under $20,500. Might pay to shop around or make a few calls
  • I go to NJ every weekend. I should buy from the NJ dealer then. Could you tell me the dealer name?
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 4,888
    put a dealers name to that email you recieved. Bottom line 2013 CVT sport Auto is .....22,929 invoice with dest charge 790.
    There is no dealership in this country that will sell you a sport model for below 1k of the invoice price on that model... Maybe by summer time with incentives and support from honda corp.. My best guess on price here on the East Coast is

    400 to 800 below dealers invoice then paying doc fee's on top of that price.
    Its all a game... Jersey will sell lower on invoice but recoups with high doc's fee's of 300 to 400 dollars..
    NY doc 75... prior post from paragon they went 400 below . Do the math they all stick together pretty close in pricing.

    If you are buying this month you have to figure out a price and email every dealer the last day of Jan. be aware of every dealers doc fee's. Tell each dealer meet my price i buy now. Your New jersey price offerings has to be lower than New york dealerships due to doc fee's charges . Email as many dealers as you want and how far your willing to travel. If nobody meets your price

    make your best deal out of the dealerships you email and enjoy your new car or
    Wait til President Weekend... prices would be alot better maybe as much as 500

    Does anyone read the prior posts? This forum is to inform and helps others who are looking to purchase a new Honda Accord. If you claim you have this incredible deal for $2,000 less than my good deal and for $2,500 under invoice, then post the name of the dealership and breakdown the costs/doc fees, etc..... You aren't the same guy who is dating a Victoria Secret model yet none of your friends, family or coworkers have ever seen you with her? If you purchase this car for $20,500 OTD, I promise I will make your first three months payments. It makes it very difficult to measure how good of a deal can be had, when posters who are either grossly misinformed, naive or both, post unrealistic numbers on this board. Please post dealers name and breakdown of all costs before taxes, local DMV fees and post the dealers doc fees.
