2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • goodgalgoodgal Posts: 3
    I am getting a 2013 Accord sedan EX-L 4cyl OTD for $27000. Sticker price with added dealer options is 30,131 (excl TTL) Already installed so they added in installation costs> options include wheel locks $149(55 uninstalled), mud guards $249($149 uninstalled),cargo tray $249 ($142 uninstalled)and first place finish($699 option) already on car). I talked to dealers in NC, SC & VA and no one has come closer than $600 to the offer here in Greensboro. I think by mid summer without options you might be able to do the 25,000 OTD since August is when the 2014 rolls in they said. If you can wait til then an even better deal maybe.
  • Price over email is never the best price, no matter what you are told. You can certainly do better , sale mgrs will work with you or anyone willing to buy, buy be ready to buy at that point. I have driven with new car out if the lot at 10pm once I got the price I asked for. Good luck hunting, Julian
  • Let me know if my calculations are wrong here:

    Your OTD price is 27000. I am assuming about 200 for tags/registration/doc fees etc. (Sale price + 3% tax) comes to 26,800. Sale price is ~26,000.

    The MSRP is 28,785(including destination and no options). Edmunds invoice is 26,400. (there's usually a $75 advertising fee so invoice is about 26,475)

    Your options seem very pricey (149 and 249 for wheel locks and splash gaurds?). these are thrown in for free usually every car (i bought an EX-L v6 in PA and the dealer did not even bother putting them in the order sheet even though they were installed. I also got the carpeted floor mats included. I did not ask for any of these, the car came with it and I didn't complain). I have no idea what the 'first place finish' is for 699, but if the dealer says these are preinstalled and you cannot get a model without them, he is BSing you.

    If you can wait, I would suggest to wait till the last week of the month and tell them you are ready to buy if they can match ur price. This is basically what I did:

    Use a reasonable price to get the deal done, I'd say 25,500 (you can close the deal at a couple hundred higher). Add 3 % taxes and fees + reasonable doc fees (say about 100-150). Target $26,500 OTD max. Have pre approved credit just to show you are serious about buying soon.(although Honda has a good APR going on now, and you can get that instead).

    Its a good price if thats your best offer.. What are dealers doc fee's?? You need to contact more dealers in your area find out what the market value is . then you should buy on march 31. I see your in N.E. read prior post EXL v-6 can be had for 1000 below invoice.

    remember doc fee's are between 199 to 300

    I need some help in getting the best price. I sent two car dealers email for the 2013 Accord Sport CVT and one came back at $23536.00 plus tax and dest chg. The other dealer 23890.00 . Has anyone had any luck in getting the price cheaper down with other car dealerships in the Daytona Beach or Orlando area.
    Would I do better if I wanted to the end of the month and went in person to see if I could negotiate any farther.
  • Any dealer suggestions in the NY area for a 2013 Touring? What's considered a fair price to install an X Package kit when list is $2000-2200?
    Is it unreasonable to expect to pay under invoice?

    Dealers keep saying they're oh so rare!
    Got an unsolicited offer from a Md dealer for $30,556, not sure if that included destination. I'd travel up to 100 miles if the price was that good

    College hills honda sells that kit for $1600. Buy kit seperate from Accord purchase. Dealers will not sell you kit and installation at cost..

    The first place finish is something on the leather & carpet with a 5 yr warranty against stains, tears in leather or carpet. If they can't get it cleaned or if say a pen jabs a hole in the leather it is covered for 5 yrs under the first place finish which usually costs $699. I asked so if a dog jumps in the car and rips 3 inches in the leather???He said we replace the seat cover. The first place finish also covers the paint job. Should anything peel like the clear coat (and I have seen this happen on a 4year old CRV then the paint job is covered. They give a warranty sheet with it that lists lots of scenarios. It is great coverage. I did a cash deal and I needed the car this week so wrote a $27,000 check OTD. I might could have done better had I waited but needed the car this week since my 2008 Acura MDX sold right way.
  • $1600 sounds right since the kits have a 50% markup, dealers pay half the MSRP, or less.
    I'd prefer install at purchase though for warranty coverage.
    I believe I have the mechanical skill to add all-weathe mats, locking lugs and trunk tray...maybe...with detailed instructions.

    I have never seen an "advertising fee" on any Honda or Acura vehicle. Also any document fees are bogus and simply profit to the dealer. Such fees simply increase the selling price of the vehicle and should be considered as such by a buyer.

    Add-ons applied by the dealer should not be accepted as they are overpriced and also designed to increase the dealer's profit. Most ethical dealers do not resort to such tactics. My experience is that most dealers will not let a sale walk if a buyer refuses to pay for such add-ons. At a maximum the buyer should only pay the dealer's cost for such add-ons.

    The "first place finish" is clearly one more way for the dealer to pad its profit. For $699, if the dealer won't budge a buyer should walk away.

    A person's feet are their best negotiating tool. Letting a dealer believe you are ready to walk out the door often creates magic. A buyer should always remember the dealer needs them a lot more than they need the dealer.

    You might want to consider another Honda dealer. This one with its overpriced add-ons seems like one to avoid.

    Hard to believe they are charging $100 to install wheel locks, takes a $8 per hour shop guy about 20 minutes or less. And $107 to install a cargo tray is beyond silly. The first place option is an expensive insurance policy against something which will not likely occur. The dealers profit on this is hundreds. And the small print is designed to exclude many events. Such things should be avoided. Just ask yourself if you really think this is a good way to spend $699?

    This dealer may be charging you $600 less than other dealers but the dealer is more than making this up with all its overpriced add-on crap.

    I suggest you contact some dealers in Maryland, DC area, such as Criswell and Sport Honda or Pohanka Honda in Virginia. You might find it worth a drive as, in my experience, these dealers offer good pricing and are generally more honest than most.

    Personally I would avoid DC area Honda dealers College Park and Ourisman as these seem to have too many negative reviews posted on line.

    Just purchased the 2013 Sport CVT in PA...for $150 below invoice - destination charge included..The deal was going South fast when tried for $300 under invoice...Sticking point for me was finding a black one....very difficult....feel i got a decent deal- not the best but ok...a couple of perks but mostly the 1.9% financing..Did not buy the extended warranty- they push so hard...
    7 years ago I tried to get a deal on the Honda Odyssey...Honda would not budge on on MSRP price- crazy how much they deal now in this economy...but sorry- no matter how nice a salesman appears- they do not have your best interest at heart,,,just their pockets,,,
  • milan120milan120 Posts: 4
    Paid $150 Under dealer invoice with the destination included yesterday...Keep dealing....Bought CVT not manual... - IN Black...Very nice car...

    When I get closer to actually buying, I will do just that. Anyone get a deal from Boch or Prime? I hear they are pretty large volume dealerships. I am just looking for an EX-L NOT the V6 and I don't want the Navi, my Garmin is just as good with Lifetime Maps. I don't care about the sport since I am no longer a youngin' and would prefer the Leather and Moon Roof and better Stereo as I still like loud music. Does anyone know how the stereo compares to a BMW 335i? That has awesome sound for factory.

    Plaza Honda in Brooklyn included in my invoice $399 advertisement fee, when I asked what it is the sales person said: "This is how we brought you here"?! Really, didn't I mention that I'm a returning customer who just bought a car 3 years ago and live few blocks away? I would never go back to that dealership, many others treated me way better and I was able to negotiate better price than Plaza Honda. On top of that they have included $699 for car preparation fee, when asked what's that salesperson said: this is for removing adhesives from the car, cleaning it up, etc? Look, I can remove those adhesives myself.
  • What is a the best total OTD price for a 2013 Accord EX-L 4cyl w/ NAVI? Including tax, destination and everything?
  • dhyun3dhyun3 Posts: 13
    Hi, can you please post more detail on your deal? how did you get the deal? It's because I'm going to the dealer tonight to get a Black accord sport and would be great if I get to know how you dealt with them.

    So MSRP is $24,190 and invoice is $22139, so you got the car for around $22k including destination right?
  • austin198austin198 Posts: 23
    Invoice on a Sport with automatic tranny is $23,127, including destination. You should be able to get us car easily for $22,600, and perhaps a few hundred lower if you are a good negotiator.
  • Just to keep track of what actually happenned here, the OTD price paid was $27,000 which means the Sale price (including the options and addons and the protection package) is around $26,000 for a car with $26,400 invoice. Even if the protection package is valued at half the price (arbitrary, I have no idea what these packages should cost or are sold for outside), say $350, the Sale price is about $750 below invoice; I'd say that is a very good deal for someone who is looking to buy immediately. Enjoy the new car!
  • Question: there is a Honda logo and a number in all of my Windows. I don't think is the vin etching thing, as they don't match my VIN number. I saw it in my 08 accord, but no sure if it is the part number or serial number than Honda uses to track their cars or parts.

    I am looking to add the vin etching myself. Any suggestions? I saw some online sellers, anyone dealt w any of them? Thanks.

    Just deleted my message by mistake.
    The Honda Accord sound system is ok nothing great.

    If your sound system is like the one in my X-5
    with over 600 watts your comparing apples to oranges. Big diff.

    The Hyundai Genesis has one of the best sound systems that i have heard.
    Plus any vehicle with Bang & Olufsen/ Mark levinson systems..

    I agree with Brian. The 360 watt audio system is just middle of the road in the EX-L CVT. I was hoping for a better system, bit disappointed.

    Buying 2013 Honda Accord Sport CVT in upstate NY for $22340 (~$600 under invoice) with financing before taxes and $100 fee. Also negotiated 6 years / 120 K miles extended warranty for $900. Honda Remote starter ($500 including installation)
  • starik79starik79 Posts: 2
    I ordered report from Consumer Reports for $14 that gives all the numbers what dealer paid and what incentives they get. I closed the deal on 2013 Honda Accord Sport CVT for $22340 including destination before taxes and $100 fee. I even negotiated 6yr/120k extended warranty for $900 instead of $1500.

    I am looking to buy the 2013 Honda Accord coupe ex-l and was going to go through my uncle for it as he works for a group of dealerships, one of which is for Honda (he doesn't work for the Honda branch though). He had told me that the price would be just under 27k including tax (this was also including the remote engine starter) which seemed like a good price. However, when I spoke to the car dealer at Honda today he said the 27k price was before any tax and that with the tax it would come out to just under 30k.

    I havent had a chance to speak with my uncle about it yet but was just wondering what everyone's opinion was of the price. I feel like I could go to any dealership and get the car for under 30k.

    do you need to provide VIN number for CR report? How did you manage to reserve Accord for that VIN number from the dealer when you was waiting for CR report?
