    Make the best deal closest to your house. read tru prior postings there are alot of dealerships mentioned by me and others on pricing. Call those same dealerships. If your in no rush to buy make these dealers [non-permissible content removed] or get off the bowl tomm by calling 10/20 dealerships and tell each one

    I buy for this price yes or no. my model my color my options. someone will take your money or come close to your number..

    Think of buying this way... Your in a bar and the dealership is the guy trying to pick you up. Play the game.... LOL

    good luck and have fun tomm

    had two dealerships tell me it's not possible for the dealer to sell the Accord Coupe EXL w power pack for 27K OTD

    spoke with my salesman today, agreed to accept $5K on my credit card and 10K in cashier's check,so it appears it's real

    i have read the prior post u posted with all the Honda dealers.
    should i ask for 27,500 for EXL V4 OTD? do u think thats a reasonable price or 27,800?
    a stupid question: how do i get to the internet manager? do i just ask to speak with the internet manager and they will connect me to him?

    thanks in advance

    I went to three dealerships over the past two days and found the same thing. The sport model is limited and they do not budge much with numbers. Most of the two good to be true offers that I received on the phone were just that. Anyway, I received another price for the sport automatic for 23300 in person which includes destination. I feel that this is several hundred more than it should but there are not many sports available.

    After much work in the Bay Area I was able to get a decent price on an Sport 6-Speed Manual. I was set on the Obsidian Black so I don't think I hit bottom in terms of price. Price of car was $21,650 plus tax, lic., and 80 dollar doc. fee. I was in and out (test drive included) in 1 hour 45 minutes in Morgan Hill on Memorial Day. The vehicle just got off the truck as well and only had 3 miles on the ODO. Needless to say the wife and I are thrilled with the purchase. All things considered we were happy with the whole process. Sport models are hard to find even in a large are like the Bay Area. Research only found 7 vehicles in the Black 6MT combo and that figured into jumping on the deal presented by Morgan Hill. :shades:

    I went to a dealer to look at a 2013 EX-L 4cyl. I was quoted sticker 28795 but they offered me 13500 for my 2008 subaru impreze which only KBB for 10500. I owe about 8500 which leaves me about 5000 equity plus I get a 500 military discount. I plan on paying the taxes and dealer fee of 599 out of pocket. What confused me was the payment I was told. That leaves me 23295 left to finance at 1.9%. The dealer told me the payment was 425 but I calculate about 407. I wonder why the difference? We are not looking to purchase for about a month.

    If your calling dealerships ask the the name of the Internet mgr. Once you get his name have them connect you to him. you only speak to him. leave a message if you get a machine with a brief message that your looking to buy this model today.

    Go down the line with all dealerships and tell each one for xxx below invoice price for my model, color, and options i buy right know. If they say no then thank them and move on. If they want to give you a price that is close to your number let each dealer know you will consider it but xxx gets it down today.
    Your asking number is very realistic for end of May be firm, stay in control of the negotiations with my price... Do not go into any dealership unless you have worked out all the numbers 1st. Dealerships that tell you to come down but wont give you the final price save for later and continue with your calls.

    I like to get a big pad and write each dealership i call with this info... Name, Number and Internets mgr on that line along with each dealerships Doc fee's.
    leave your email or phone number with each dealership. Go down the line.

    I could probably contact 30 dealers in 1 hour and get out to every dealership
    What my buying price is for them to earn my business that day. Alot of times i have struck a deal by the 4 or 5th dealership. i have had times where it took me all 20 or 30 to find what i'm looking for.

    I find planting the seed in every dealers head on xxx price gets call backs that day within hours if not sooner.
    Do not waste your time negotiating with salesmen on the phone you will get no- where. You would be better off driven from one dealer to the next for that matter.

    If 10 dealerships wont negotiate by phone make sure you ask each one if they will meet your price for the sale today if you come down.. then put them on the back of your list..

    Your asking price to buy today should be 1000 below invoice price, $25,399 plus taxes and DMV, doc fee's. at worst case settle for 25,500.

    Good luck

    Hi Brian,
    At the time of my car purchase, the dealer mentioned that when you get the statement from the Honda Financing (Capital One) just send your cheque to him and everything will be taken care of.
    Yesterday I got the statement from Capital One auto finance, which states the balance amount is 22,075 when my loan is for 22000. Not sure from where did that extra 75 bucks came from.
    The cheque what I have from PenFed is a blank cheque for 25K limit which I got from them for buying a car. So can I use the same cheque to pay capital one or do i need to apply for re-financing?

    First of all, not all of these "Prices Paid" numbers are factual. I used to have to deal with this on a daily basis.

    No dealer is going to refund any money to you. I'm guessing you probably got an excellent deal.

    Relax and just enjoy your new ride!

    I went to a dealer two days ago to look at a 2013 EX-L 4cyl in white. They really seemed to want my business even though I was not ready to buy for a few weeks. I was quoted 28785 (MSRP) less military discount (28285 actual) They started out with an offer of 9000 trade for my 2008 Subaru impreza with out even looking at it. KBB is about 10500. I told them this and my trade value jumped a couple times until they reached 13500 (I owe 8500). I don't know how to take it. Do I look at it as 10500 for trade and 3000 off msrp? At this point the sales manager actually came out to talk to me. They gave me the "four square" sheet for me to take home and offered me a demo car to show the wife. Dealer fee is 599 which is about in line for around here.

    Also do I arrange my own financing or talk to the dealer. We have A+ credit.

    Any word when the 2014's come out? My wife and I really want a white with black leather combo but it is not offered for 2013.

    Get the 10-day payoff amount from CapOne -- your interest rate was 4.6% so you're paying arnd $2.70-$2.80/day in interest (that $75 is your first month's interest)

    Is the check from Penfed for a car purchase or refinance? Call Penfed and see if you can use that check to refinance or if they need to send you a new one (in that case ask them if they can send a new check directly to CapOne)

    Bought an accord LX yesterday , last day of May.

    Prime honda , close to Boston. Paid 20320 . No options included , doc fee was about 290
    Traded in a 2000 Camry , 148k miles on it, in so so condition for 1500

    They were pretty good . Liked my experience there. Tried Boch honda earlier in the month , they played games , didn't like to deal with them anymore , will not go there in the future.

    I agree with the dealers that play games and will tell you anything to get you into the dealership.

    I want to thank everyone for all the great advice and pricing info. I got a much better deal after reading and rereading every post here for the last two weeks. I didn't have time to start thur or fri and didn't want to wait another month so I started yesterday, June 1. My strategy was to call dealers that had my car and color in stock.

    My spill was "I'll buy today for 27.5 + TTL." The replies were "that's crazy talk", bye ; "come in and deal", no; " how about 28xxx" not today, I may check back. I was getting very discouraged and starting to question my strategy. Then bingo, I bought a car on the 10th call.

    I know it's not the best deal ever, but i think I did O.K. I'm sure I would have paid more without the info learned here. I hope my numbers can help others. Thanks again.

    EX-L V6
    MSRP 30860
    price 26900
    doc 600
    TTL 2185
    OTD 29685
  • 21,300 + 700 freight + 700 dealer fee + 1000 tax + license/misc = $24,000
    includes lifetime warranty -unlimited miles/years and 5 year DuPont complete paint protection
  • seems too good to be true - are you sure it includes $700 destination/freight and there is usually a 500 to 700 dealer fee also?
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 645
    Looks like the price walletless paid is more in line with market than what you paid - your deal seems a bit steep. What's this lifetime warranty? I've never heard of that.

  • Lifetime warranty is for engine ctv transmission transfer case fuel pump timing chain Eng mounts drive axle seals with fidelity warranty services in deerfield Fla.
  • I am interested in the EX 4 door automatic in So. California. What is the dealership you purchased your car from? We have dealt with several internet depts in So. Calif, who give an emailed price supposedly out the door and then change the story upon arrival at the dealership!

    Were you happy with dealer and salesperson? What color did you get? Were you able to get flex cash?
    Thank you for your help. Sounds like you got a good deal, especially with your trade in!

    Are you loving your car?

    Sounds like you purchased a third party extended warranty - it would probably a good idea to research the reputation of this company as many car buyers have had bad experiences with organizations like these. As far as extended warranties are concerned, you would be better off investing in Hondacare from one of the online sellers popular on this site.

    Edit: Dylan - you might want to see if you can cancel the Fidelity plan - a peek online reveals many complaints by consumers who have had dealings with them.

    Love the car. It's blue.
    Kearny Mesa or Escondido dealers were the best.
    Don't know if they gave me flex cash. (It wasn't on the paperwork).
    I assumed I'd actually get 1750ish for the trade in. The guy a few posts up got 1500 for trading in a 2000 Camry.
    To get to $385 a month with a 1750 trade in and 500 down, I think the purchase price needed to be around 22,100. I just said this is the payment I want. I let them figure out how to get there.

    Patience was the key on this. It took about a week to make the deal but my wife was ready to crack.

    I purchased a 2013 pilot 30 days ago and the dealer gave me 0.9% financing for 60 months to make that deal work, even though they were advertising 0.9 for up to only 36 months.

    They must have loved you!

    A) $385/mo x 24 months = $9,240 + $2,250 (trade, down) = $11,490
    B) $385/mo x 36 months = $13,860 + $2,250 (trade, down) = $16,110
    C) $385/mo x 48 months = $18,480 + $2,250 (trade, down) = $20,730
    D) $385/mo x 60 months = $23,100 + $2,250 (trade, down) = $25,350
    E) $385/mo x 72 months = $27,720 + $2,250 (trade, down) = $29,970

    If it is A, then it is a really GREAT deal. If it is E, then, well.... too late anyway...
