Congrats on your new car purchase.

Now let's use this thread to keep track of prices people paid. If possible, please list both price before TTL and price OTD. Why? Not everyone pays sales tax or the same sales tax percentage. Thanks.

Please list:

  • Year
  • Sedan or Coupe
  • 4 or 6 cylinder engine
  • Your city and state location (please update your UserCP to include this information!)
  • Trim (i.e. LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Touring, Hybrid, VP.... etc.)
  • Automatic, CVT, or Manual transmission
  • Price before Tax Title License (TTL)
  • Price Out The Door (OTD)
  • Miscellaneous add-ons/extras (e.g. extended warranty, spoiler, body kit, pin stripe, Honda Factory Performance (HFP) wheels, nitrogen in the tires (lol).... etc.)

You can also add your purchase to the editable spreadsheet --> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QTyoqt8obgMsD1wvABec9FFE3YYIiOzFvrZWHFH9TqA/edit?usp=sharing


What should you pay? What's a fair price? Go to the end of this thread and work your way back to see what people paid most recently.

I'll come back to this thread when I make it official. This should help give everyone, an idea of what is possible, NOW.

I contacted several dealers for a Coupe EX-L Navi AT, so far, I have an offer from one Dealer of $500.00 below MSRP + No Doc Fees.

Every Dealer I contacted used the same basic sales tactic, it's gonna be impossible to get one early for less than MSRP (BS my friends), I counter with the fact, that the Accord is a Mass produced vehicle, not a Limited_Special_Edition_Low Production Run, if they want my Money they must present me with a price somewhere in between Invoice & MSRP, considering it's early on in the production run, later, when lot's start filling up, then it's all about Invoice.

I understand the Leverage of Dealers, VS, I gotta have it now customers, it always occurs in the first few weeks or sometimes months, but I can wait or find another Dealer or maybe a Different Manufacturer. I make sure they understand my position.

I'm gonna visit them this afternoon because they said they will be putting in their orders for Coupes on Friday (Sept. 20th), I'm also gonna recontact other Dealers Today with My offer and see where it goes.

Well, You have to consider when you have old stock still sitting, why would you discount your new inventory. Also, you dont go anywhere else and try negotiate when you by something. 500 is more than enough for a product thatwas released sat. If you wanna be the first with the newest thing on the block, pay for it.

Also thge coupe will not be released till the 15th of october

My dad bought his 12 Camry a year ago in October and received a discount of around $3k off msrp. Of course he bought his last 4 cars at this dealer with the same sales person. Now that I think about it the car wasn't even built yet. He had to wait 2 weeks. Same thing with his previous 07. New design, had to wait a few weeks. This was just a basic I4 LE. $12400 OTD with 6.25% OH sales tax included and trading in an 07 Camry LE 4cyl with 80k miles and good condition.

Ex-L Automatic MSRP $28,785 bought tonight for $26,989 + tax, tile-No DOC fees.

I know the owner of the dealership well and have no clue if he gave me a special deal.

I'm thinking about buying a 2013 Accord. I've already had two dealerships in the Boston area offer invoice price on any 2013 Accord in stock. Therefore, it can be done, you just have to push harder if they offer anything above invoice.

Yes you do-->:thmsup:
I'll just say they didn't say and I didn't ask but I wonder if others are paying near msrp. Before I got to know the owner over the last several years they lost a 98 accord and 04 ody sale demanding full sticker.

They now deal with everyone largely because of stiff competition from Korea and Gm ford. I suspect my discount may be larger than average considering these 13s are literally rolling of the truck .

Are you including sales tax?, if so, how much was the sales tax?

Did you really want all those accessories like "windshield chemical treatment"? I think you could have gotten a better deal.

I saw one 2013 Accord in a lot that the dealer added "Genuine wheel locks" for $175. Honda's MSRP for Accord wheel lock is $56.

It is hard to tell when you don't give the amount before sales tax because different areas have different tax.

For example, I almost got a 2013 I4 4Dr EX-L with Navi for $27,685 + $236 doc fee and no trade-in plus my state sales tax. However, he only had a black one coming in and my wife does not want black. In about 2 weeks he will know what colors are in his next allotment so I decided to wait for a different color.

The dealer quoted me the sell price and they said these are the accessories they already have put on!
Tell them you want the same car/trim, but without all the B.S. margin-padding add-on's that's probably cheaper to buy yourself if you decide you need or want them later.

I have told them to take them off or give me a different car if they can't do that. You be susprised how much they can take off like pin striping.

BTW, what the heck is ""windshield chemical treatment" besides profit?

w/ accessories include: mud flaps, all-weather mats, trunk mats, wheel locks, door edge film, windshield chemical treatment.

Is it a good deal ?
You can look up the discount mail order price for Honda's mud flaps, all-weather mats, trunk mats, wheel locks, door edge at the collagehillshonda web site. Their are also other web sites. You will have to pay shipping but it will still be cheaper. The only thing you may be consern about is installing the mud flaps but that should not be too hard.

This is the max price I'd pay for a EX-L Navi sedan.....

MSRP = $30,785 ($29,995 + $790 destination)

(supposed) Invoice = $28,223 ($27,433 + $790 destination)

$27,433 (invoice)
- $923.55 (3% holdback from MSRP of $30,785)
+ $600 (fair profit *)
+ $790 (destination)
__________________________________
$27,899.45 + TTL

but goal would be at least $500 under that... so $27,399.45 + TTL or lower



* Truthfully, they'll be making more than $600 profit

Interesting numbers. I almost got a 2013 I4 4Dr EX-L with Navi for $27,685 (including the $790 destination) + $236 doc fee and no trade-in plus state sales tax. The dealer's numbers are near yours. He only had black so I'm waiting for the colors of his next allotment which he said will be within 2 weeks.

Wow, that's a very good quote, around $500 under invoice. Can you tell me which dealer offered you this quote? Thanks.
