2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • wrtoffwrtoff Posts: 7
    2013 accord sedan. exl with navi v6 I paid $28,500 with destination fee included. cargo tray and all weather mats included. 6.25% sales tax (MA). This was over Presidents Day weekend. I negotiated with 5 Honda dealerships in the Boston area. Honda Cars of Boston were the lowest. That was the best deal going at the time.

    What states are you looking to buy. EXL V-6 is the hardest model to nail down a price....... like the other models are selling.
    I would have to say from experience if you make your calls/ emails on friday the 29th telling all dealerships you contact you are ready to buy for xxx price you should do just as good if not better than the feb/ people who purchased.

    Brian, I am looking for a 2013 Accord LXCVT and called Autosport and talked to Jane, who claimed to be one of the managers and the best price she could give me with the 249 doc fee was 21,220 which was only about 100 below invoice. Not including NJ reg fee of NJ tax. 13as claimed they got a sport auto model at autosport for 23 OTD which I asume included tax and reg fee. What do I have to do to get them to go lower or should I forget about autosport alltogether.

    I have noticed that Brian advises to call and email dealers, but if you read his post regarding his purchase, he went down to his local dealership and made a deal, just like 95% of people who buy cars. You will never get Autosport's best deal via a phone call.

    I would give them one more shot on friday the 29th. along with the rest of your targeted dealerships. dont start your buying process til then.

    Call and only speak to the internet sales manager KERRY on the 29th
    Make sure you tell him you are buying the car that day .does he want the sale for your targeted price. Check there inventory 1st to make sure he has your model and color or they wont deal..

    your lx cvt model is selling between 600 and 1000 below invoice.

    You should get your price..

    i think jane lied to you...she might of been just a floor sampler with the price she gave you..
    you know they train these people like robots.

    You are dead wrong about auto sport i would of purchased from them on jan 30th but there last exl v-6 black touring was sold to another poster in here for 1000 below invoice .

    I purchased my last honda from Auto-sport a few years ago.. by phone Gene

    So much for your Autosport phone theory.

    you should stick to reading these posts and learning.

    Brian, thanks for the super quick reply! The problem with Autosport right now is that they dont have the silver or dark blue that I want and they are not getting a silver one in til beginning of April. But Hamilton Honda just emailed me a quote whuch was 516 below invoice, so if they agree to waive the 249 doc fee the price would be 765 below invoice and I would buy it there. But I probably will have to go down there, about 1.5 hours away, to fnd out if they would go lower. They have both the silver and dk blue is stock as of today. Also that dealer in MD just emailed me a quote of 1000 below invoice but not sure if I want to drive 4 hours if Hamilton will come down a little more.

    Autosport wont deal if vehicle is not in stock. dont bother with them. Call Hamilton on the 29th and tell them you will buy for 800 below invoice or make them match your best offer. Make dealer fax you over the buyers order and secure your deal with a credit card deposit. there is no need to go into any dealership unless you agree on a price. especially if they are hours away.
    you might want to visit some local dealerships on friday if you cant negotiate by phone ..... call as many dealers on the 29th and make your best deal.. it might be wise to check all these dealerships inventory 1st. The bigger dealers who sells cars might not care about if its not in there inventory ..they will get it...

  • I've been reading this forum for a little over a month and i've got to say thank you to the people that contribute and especially to Brian, who seems to as obsessive as I am about getting a good deal. I'd also like to ask for a bit of help.

    Brian any idea of what I should be looking to pay on the 2013 Honda Accord EX L v6 in NC? I see lots of advice geared toward the NJ area, wondering if you have an idea how much the ttl would affect the price in my area. Are the prices of around 500-1000$ below invoice realistic in the South?

    As of now I know i'm going to try dealers carrying large volumes of this car within 150 miles on the 29th. This alone I think will help my cause immensely. Thanks in advance.

    Best quote I have received in southwest PA for a sport (modern steel) is 22,295 with 500 in Honda flex cash - so 21,795. 12k/36m lease with 1k down would be 256.18/month (allegheny county taxes). 0 down would be 285.88/month

    I got a deal from one of the dealers in best price out of 5 Dealers in St. louis

    st. louis for 20,720+TTL Sales tax 6.95%
    Il Dealer for 21,182+TTL Sales tax 4.2% out of state tax

    Please suggest me is this the best price to buy the car or can i bargin more?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am pretty sure you pay the sales tax for the area where you register it, otherwise everyone would be buying cars in states that have no sales taxes.

    Forgot to include this is a CVT as well

    I bought my 2013 EX-L CVT by email and phone entirely. This is not the first time either. Do not go in the dealer's den and get clobbered. Run the show from your den.

    I scored $3,850 below MSRP.

    TTL is $937 paid at a tag agency.

    Happy hunting.

    Just wondering.. what was the dealer name?
  • frogeefrogee Posts: 5
    I bought one of these back in November and now regret it. The V-6 makes an annoying vibration when it's running on three cylinders, which is a lot. Perhaps you won't notice it. My price was okay, but included a large trade-in, and the Honda was a demo with 1,000 miles on it.

    I'm in the market for the 2013 Accord EX-L (CVT). Is $25K a reasonable OTD target in the Chicagoland area? Or am I being too aggressive?
  • That's terrible news. One of the reason I liked it was because of how silent it was. Do you know what your sales price was?

    When do you notice the annoying vibration, and is this a known occurrence/issue?

    I'd appreciate at any info.

    when I talk to a dealer telling him I got this price 22837 1200 below, he don't believe it and ask for proof to match the price, can you email me ( the offer from the dealer or any suggestion.

    Invoice plus destination is 26,399, so good luck with that. That's without the nav.

  • Hi Brian,

    First of all, thanks for replying to everybody and sharing your tips. Also a huge thanks to everybody for sharing their experiences and ideas. I am a first time buyer and its a jungle out there for me.

    Anyway I recently test drove the Honda Accord EX and the dealer gave me the price $22,047.00 (~25,500 OTD). After reading some of your guys posts, it seems like there is nothing to negotiate here.. I went back all the way and couldnt find anybody who got the car for less than 25k. My question is should I even bother bargaining? Or should I accept this price and ask for more services like oil change/car wash etc.

    Again thanks everybody. You"ll have motivated me enough to share all my experiences with you"ll. Hopefully I seal the deal soon!
  • i recently purchased an ex.coupe cvt for.23,125. (25k otd). so if u can get a.sedan for 22,047. i is a.bargain. you come up.with 25.5k otd? it.seems like's fee.and.state tax.are pretty high.
  • gene103gene103 Posts: 47
    Brian, not sure why you took such exception to my post. All I did was state my opinion (something you do more than anyone in this forum) and support it by using someone considered an email/phone proponent who would use my position to their advantage. So let me take this opportunity to reply.


    You are dead wrong about auto sport i would of purchased from them on jan 30th but there last exl v-6 black touring was sold to another poster in here for 1000 below invoice .

    Hmm, you just missed out on that great deal from Autosport, and I recall you that someone just beat you out of a great deal at the dealer in Myrtle Beach. Am I sensing a pattern here?

    I purchased my last honda from Auto-sport a few years ago.. by phone Gene So much for your Autosport phone theory.

    So much for my Autosport theory.? All you have proven is that you decided to buy a car by phone from Autosport. How do you come to the conclusion you got a better deal than those who made a deal in person? You know what they all paid?.

    you should stick to reading these posts and learning.

    What a condescending remark!
    Yes, I have learned quite a bit. I learned that you love giving out your opinions, even if you don’t follow your own advice. I didn’t post that I went to a dealer on Feb 28 and worked out a deal in 20 minutes. You did.

  • I live in Chicagoland so 9.5% sales tax, destination fee (800) and new plates
  • gene103gene103 Posts: 47

    At least you use humor to disagree. Maybe some of you will rub off on Brian.

    Bouncers, supermodels, they intimidate me, auto salesman don't so I won't be clobbered (and I'm not implying they intimidate you either). Have I left money on the table? Probably every time, but I think I did better than if I negotiated by phone. I think it just makes sense that you get the best deal when you are there and they know you are really serious.

    Maybe it's different in your area but I'm glad you did so well.

  • Hey guys,

    Hoping to buy the car and pull the trigger this week on a Honda Accord 2013 EX for 25400 out the door. What do you guys think?
  • dan818dan818 Posts: 2
    After reading for several weeks and learning a lot from you all, this is my first post to the forum. I am shopping for a EX-L V6 sedan and am looking to purchase this week. I started sending out emails and calling the local dealerships yesterday. I received a few email quotes in the ballpark of $27,500 and feel that's about the best I'm going to get (maybe another couple hundred off but not much more). Today a local dealer offered me demo V6 EX-L with 3,500 miles for about $26,000.

    I would appreciate any thoughts/ input about the new offer vs. the demo offer. Does the demo savings justify being "used" and having 3,500 miles in your opinion? And especially if you have purchased a demo, what has your experience been? Thanks so much for the feedback guys.
  • Hi pickthedavid,

    Would you mind sharing which dealership offered the 22047 price for EX? I am in Chicago area and would like to purchase a '13 Accord b/f end of this month. Thanks.
