Accord HFP questions

I found a 2017 Accord Touring with HFP package at a Dodge dealership today, and they are selling it for the same price that standard Accord Tourings sell for. Should they be asking more for it due to the HFP package? I’m thinking they simply don’t realize that it has this rare $5000 option package, and that I might be able to scoop it up for a steal price. Would it be wrong of me to try to get the salesman down a couple thousand dollars?

Am I crazy, or is it possible that the HFP suspension somehow gives the car a more comfortable ride than standard suspension? I had ruled it out assuming it would have a rougher ride, but I drove it, as well as a standard Touring, and an EX-L, and I could swear the HFP had the most comfortable ride of the three, and that just doesn’t make sense to me.

One last question. Should I get an extended warranty? Consumer Reports rates these things as having amazing reliability except for the electrical systems, which I’ve learned are known for being unreliable. It seems to me I should get a warranty in case I have to replace the head unit or instrument cluster or computer, or anything else. Any opinions?

    Most people buy Hondas because of reliability. I surely wouldn't buy an extended warranty.

    It isn't your job to help the dealer make money. Negotiate the lowest price you can.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!
