2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    No problem.

    Since your post was titled "2013 or 2014 Accord sedan EX", I was under the impression that you were inquiring about an Accord EX.

    Without a price breakdown, we cannot tell whether you got a good deal.

    Some of the info that might be helpful would be as follows:

    Sales price (including destination fee):
    Documentation Fees:
    Title and Registration Fees:
    Dealer add-ons:
    Any flex cash?
    Tax rate: (Since it varies by state and it does not affect the price of the car, you can just post the percentage)

    What is the sales price you are being offered on a 2014 model? Below invoice pricing? Its MSRP is about $300 more than the 2013 model.

  • Prime said they don't have the car in stock, they can offer me the 2014 at invoice price. But i have to wait till the month end to get the car.
  • They can't go any lower than 25,200. But I am working with few dealers on 2014 models also. Will keep you posted.
  • Hey all, I got an offer @ 26,085 for 2014 EL-X. The dealer is asking me to come today to get this done.

    The 2013 is @ 25,200 from one dealer.

    I am in a dilemma between 2013 vs 2014. Is this the good deal to go for it? Please advice asap.
  • Hi, I am new to this forum. I am looking for a 2013 Honda Accord EX 4 cyc. Based on what I see the 2014 & 2013 models are about the same. I live in the NYC area. What is considered as a good price or avg price paid for this in the area? Will 2013 model prices drop in a few months and worth to wait? Looking for ways to find the best deals. Thanks

    The dealers offer of 26,085 for a 2014 EXL is the dest charge included in this price.

    The 2013 is 1200 below invoice price is dest charge included

    Was flex cash added to that below invoice price on 2013 and is it avail.

    What is dealerships doc fee charges.

    There is one poster who claims most dealerships in new york and new jersey are offering 500 below invoice price on his EXL model. Some models may vary in price depending on stock. Read back thru board on pricing and buying tips and then you will have some good questions to ask this forum for help.

    If you could buy a 2014 model for Invoice price or just 500 above is a good deal around the nyc area. The longer you wait to buy a 2014 model closer to Dec the better pricing will get.

    I am following a couple of post here that i find very interesting.

    Invoice and maybe below on a 2014 model????

  • Yes, the destination charges included for 2014 model.
    Doc charge + title + registration : 428

    For 2013 model, destination included and no flex cash.
    Doc charge + title + registration : 298 + 130

    If your numbers are correct. There is a 251 dollar increase from last years model exl.... Invoice w= dest charge is== 26,650

    This deal is a no brainer buy the 2014 at... 565 below invoice.

    If he left the dest charge off that price that would put you about 75 dollars above invoice which would seem right. Double check you know how these dealerships will lie..

    Even at 75 dollars above invoice price plus dealers doc fee's would still be a great deal on a 2014 model.

    How many 2013 Accords are on this dealers lot. This deal Smells fishy to me.

  • Thanks I'm excited. Getting leather and tint that's all no add ons. They even through in free oil changes and tire insurance to boot. I got lucky I guess.

    I was going to go with 13 on labor day but I wasn't getting good prices so I went back this past weekend and decided to try out 14s all but two were higher by 700 or so. Two were fighting each other and I used that to my advantage. Here is a tip have your phone ready when they put their lowest price on the buyers order. Long story short I found out 14 prices were more competitive. Supply and demand I guess and I don't think it matters if its the end of the month you just have to negotiate.
  • fxguyfxguy Posts: 132
    That's about $750 below invoice on a 2014 model. This is good. At this rate we should be back to $1000 under invoice hopefully by next month. Hoping to pick mine up before the end of October.
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 692
    I think you may be right - the 2013s sold at a brisk pace right out of the blocks because of the redesign and upgraded features - a lot of buyers jumped as Honda was adjusting the production pace. There were no significant changes to the car and production is probably going pretty well now which should translate to a more than ample supply. The good deals might come faster for the 2014s.

  • Manual or Automatic?
  • I have signed the deal for 14 as the dealer honored the price promised over the the phone.

    448 (doc+title+registration+ins. sticker)

    It was very quick deal for me this after noon that's when I started thinking about 14s and checked with few dealers (other dealers were at 300-400 more).
  • Couple of things I need the help to decide:

    1) Warranty - 10yrs/120k priced at 1330. Not a honda warranty, when asked they said it's the same insurance company (CNA) and better because of extra 2 years, the honda's at 8yrs / 120 k at same price. I was not convinced and didn't take it. What would be the best deal and how much we can reduce the price?

    2) GAP insurance - priced at 795. How much we can reduce here? Is this really useful?

    I have till Wednesday morning to decide on this as the dealer is working on getting me better rate which he think he can.

    Congrats - not a bad deal for a 2014 - but now your userid is obsolete (ha ha).

    Enjoy the new accord!

    Don't buy a third party warranty - get hondacare from one of the online sellers from over in the warranty thread - too many horror stories with third party companies.

    As far as the gap, are you financing the whole amount? If you are putting a good chunk down, you might not need gap - accords maintain their value well.

    So far we have a 750 below in TEXAS and a over 600 below up in Boston.

    This could be a nice turn of events for 2014 buyers. With such limited stock of 2013 models you are better off buying a 2014 model. Even at invoice price is a very good deal right now on a 2014 model.

    As these 2014's start to roll into dealers lots 20/30 you will see much better pricing on the 2013 left over models with colors that are not selling going for that 1500 to 2 k mark.

    If you fall into that category wait til next month and buy that less desirable color for a great deal.

    i actual thought that TX posting was a joke when posted. Maybe i'm wrong.

    Just a reminder to all buyers

    Do not be fooled by these 2 prices on a 2014 model.. Your area most likely will not come close to that kind of pricing yet. We do not know what factors led to these 2 dealerships selling this low of a price. Maybe supply and demand, a good negotiation, wanted to get new accord off there lot.

    By contacting and bringing in as many dealerships into your negotiation process will help you determine your area's market pricing on 2014 models and help you to get the lowest price possible in your area.
    If your not happy with this months pricing wait til next month.

    What amazes me is here in NYC/ New jersey some posters said they could only get 500 below on a 2013 model. already we have 2 posts stating 2014 models sells cheaper.

    Could be how you negotiate, or could be the area.

    Brian, you made some very good points.

    I just wanted to add a few things.

    To those buyers who are looking for a 2013 model in a specific color and in a particular trim, you should be checking out dealer lots now for availability. If you wait till the end of the month, you might not get what you want and might have to either settle for a second or third color choice. I am not even sure if dealers are still offering flex cash on the 2013 models.

    If you need a car soon and dealers in your area have good pricing on the 2014 models, then negotiate and go for that model.

    If price is all that matters to you, then it is best to wait for prices to drop substantially on the 2013 models.

  • Did you end up buying the 2014 at Prime? Can I ask you a favor now? Can I take some credit for keeping you talking to them? I'm going down there to discuss a few things when I get the final registration and I want to say that I helped keep them in the game with you and you ended up purchasing a 2014!

    If you keep balking at the price of the warrenty it will go down...but they will still overcharge. They also have a "coupon" for $100 off on the website. That's a bit of a farce too. Ask if the warrenty they are offering has a deductible. They will also try to sell you every warrenty under the sun and wrap it into the monthly payment so it doesn't look so bad. It's easy to walk away with $4000 worth of warranties. Just be on your toes.

    Here are some online prices for HondaCare (left off the name as not to break any rules).
    Coverage Level $0 Deductible $100 Deductible
    3 years/45000 miles $350.00 Not Available
    4 years/60000 miles $465.00 Not Available
    5 years/60000 miles $485.00 Not Available

  • So does anyone else get pressure to complete the Honda survey with all 5's? From the salesman to the finanace guy - they are fixated on making sure you complete the survey with all 5's. If they get one 4 it's a failing grade and everyone loses money. It's a real guilt trip. I think my salesman did a good job (not a 5, but I don't want him to lose money so I could live with a 5), but I am not happy with my finance meeting and he does not deserve a 5 at all. The 'manager' during negotiations did a bit of overpromise under deliver too. What impact do I cause by giving my honest opinion. It seems to me they know who is filling out the survey as they quoted one woman said the dealership wasn't 'clean'. they rather not sell a car then have a survey that is all not 5's.

    I'm going to give the finance guy a chance to make it right. But I feel like a jerk holding the survey over his head for his misleading me. But I can't in good conscience give him a 5 on the finance question, but he says that will affect the salesman's pay. I don't know what to believe.

    Does Honda know about this armtwisting? Do all dealerships do this?

    You can get below invoice now in my area for the 2014 model. I've started negotiations with some dealers in Greenville, SC and metro Atlanta and right now we are below invoice so I feel confident we can get to at least $500 below invoice if not more.

    Invoice - $28,269 (2014 exl sedan 4 cylinder with Nav)
    Their quote - $28,000 (includes $790 destination)
    Doc fees - $200
    plus tax and title fees.

    I'll let you know what we end up with.

    Stores live and die by surveys and some stores will "buy" perfect surveys by giving the customer a tank of gas or a free oil change in return for a perfect survey.

    A nasty customer who was treated well but left think they paid too much will often retaliate by giving the store a bad survey.

    Teachers and Engineers were the worst. In their minds, nobody is ever "perfect" and to them, giving a "4" was giving a good grade when in the eyes of Honda is was like giving an "F". Surveys were often very unfair.

    I had consistent excellent surveys but it wasn't easy. One lousy survey could keep a store from willing the President's Award.

    If we KNEW a customer was going to trash us on a survey, we had ways of dealing with that too.
