Exactly what Daniel said. I did the online quotes, got the best and insisted I work with the person who gave me the quote. They stuck with the price for sure. They will probably try and jack up the price with extended warranty, gap insurance, low-jack, window etching, ect. If you are interested in any of these, make sure you negotiate these as well. Keep in mind, you do not have to buy the extended warranty through the dealer. Many other companies offer the same coverage for less.

But if you’re just trying to walk out with the car and nothing else, make sure they stick with that price and stick to your guns.

Of course there is always tax, tags, title. These are usually standard for your state. One thing to watch out for is what they charge for things like “documentation fee” check what the average is in your state. They may try to get you with this as I believe they have some wiggle rome as to what they charge. I paid $600 for example.

Also, check out this link below. It is very long and very detailed, but I founf it helped me out tremendously. It uncovers a lot of “tricks” used by car dealers. Good luck!!!

I always go straight to fleet or a desk manager.

Do your research before you buy, look at KBB.com & cars.com to see the invoice & true market value for each vehicle in your area.

Good luck.

"The internet price includes destination and handling. Pricing does not include the sales tax or fees. Internet Price not valid with Special Rate and only valid on in stock units."

This fineprint is subject to interpretation. Fees can be anything. Some dealer charge a "processing fee". When you buy brand new car from the dealership, they have 4 ways of making money from you. They pull out this worksheet called the 4 magic squares. First they tried to make money off you from the selling price of the car. Second, they tried to make money from financing. Third, they make money off you from selling you warranty. Lastly, they tried to sell you accessories. There are so many tricks the dealership can pull on you and if you're inexperience you will get rip off big time. I highly recommend you do some research on car buying advice on edmunds.com and go to http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.ef17997/ for pricing research.

Internet quote can help but the 4 Got You from previous post is correct also. With me I research the high volume dealership in my area and got lower price quote of 17.899.00 for a 2009 LX Accord automatic with 3 years of free oil changes. It doesn't includes state taxes, tires taxes, car registration, and impact fees. I had to get shock unit on the lot which was not issues he a lot in shock and color I wanted Black with Ivory inter.

Email them back and ask for the "out the door" price. Some dealers I've contacted had $800+ in BS fees.

If you haven't purchased a car at those prices you are crazy.

Take a look at edmunds.com and it will explain everything about the price.

Dealer hold back: What the manufacture gives to the dealer for volume purchases. 2% of MSRP - invoice price = what dealer paid for car.

hidden incentives: right now honda manufactures are giving dealers $1,200 in advertising for each accord sold.

I will walk in a dealer demanding $100 over invoice (well, not demanding, asking) and will walk out every time getting. Start at your price not theirs. As long as you are not trying to get a low production car.

The prices you're posting above are below invoice.

Since they're having 1200 rebate. I would start with a min of 1200 below invoice or 1500 below invoice plus tax title and license. Remember the accord is due for a redesign in 2011, so you have more bargaining power.

What you all need to realize is that the OP is a kid. If he walks into a dealership w/o parents present, chances of him leaving with an awesome deal are slim to none. The sales people will just not take him seriously.

He should then just save his money and get a used car.

I look at the online quotes as a starting point to negotiate. Not an end point. If you look at it that way watch how they tack on junk fees like advertising and documentation fees.

The numbers are pretty much right on (lowest price) when we consider our dest. cost are different.

I'm sure there are dealer holdbacks that they get to move the 2010. But that's their cut.

So I would take these prices as is so you'll have a plesent experience, and they will be happy too.

It's a Honda they are selling, not left over Pontiacs. If you don't want it, someone else will. These are good prices.

But to answer your question, it depends. Some dealers will give you the bottom line, and some will still BS.

I would agree with what many have said. One of the sites mentioned already talked about the fact that dealer invoice price contains 5% to 7% profit alone, not including any other incentives they receive. So in my opinion dealer invoice price is your starting point and you should be negotiating down from there. They will not tell you what their profit margin is but just know that they make money at the invoice price. Dont be fooled. As mentioned, talk them down, threaten to walk out and keep your options open. Line up several dealers in your area and play them. Remember, its YOUR money. If they are going to do all they can to get you pay more, why wouldn't you do all you can to pay less? And If it really comes down to it, act like you just dont care and even tell them you are going to the next dealer. Know the name of a sales person at the next place and be very clear on what price you are going to get to at that dealer. In a worst case, actually walk out, get in your car and slowlydrive away. Guaranteed they will chase you down to get you to buy from them. You just can't let them know you really like the car. Once they think your 'hot and lathered' about the car they sink their teeth in.
