May 21, 2013 (5:12 pm)
Just picked up our car from Anderson Honda
Sale price + destination including 750 flex cash - 36585
splash guards, wheel locks, door edge guards, fender well trim-free
Roof rail, all season floor mats-439
3 free oil change coupons+free car wash for every service
We didn't check the car until we are done with all the paper works, when we checked it we were suprised, there are pinstripes on the sides of the car and some extra wheel locks in the storage compartment, if in case we lose some. I'm very happy with our purchase. If you are going to buy a honda car please check out Anderson Honda, look for Greg and please don't ever go to Jim Coleman Honda they're going to take your soul lol.

We are looking for an exl no nav or res. Has anyone got good quotes for the memorial day weekend? Sport Honda quoted 27995+830+title+tag+tax+189proc.
Pohanka honda at capitol heights quoted the following
Sale Price- $25559
Appearance Package - $895
Flex Cash Incentive-$750
Less Flex Cash- $750
Final Price- $28227.02
Pohanka seems to be much lower than most. Is this too good to be true? I am 3hrs away , so dont want any surprises. Has any one dealt with them before?

I have not worked with them, so I may be talking out of my butt here, but I'd be a little suspicious. They're willing to drop $10 k off of the MSRP? Unless they're going under, or they just really haven't met their monthly quota, I would make sure I fully understand everything they're saying before I make a 3 hour drive.

This is too good to be true. Please make sure it is EX-L and not EX before you go there only to be surprised. I had similar experience here in NJ and it was on third follow up to confirm the trim that the representative apologized to confirm the price was for LX.

The forum immensely helped me getting the deal closer to what I wanted. I'm posting a little bit late here but hey better late than never.
I bought my EX-L (no Nav/no RES) on 5/11 from Route 22 Honda in NJ. The sales manager had honest discussion and agreed they have hold back and FlexCash. My negotiation once we agreed on the vehicle price was on OTD price to have them reduce on their $400 doc fee.
Sale price incl dest and wheel locks: $29000
(includes manufacturer rebate of $2500, dealer hold back $1000 and Flex Cash $750)
Tax: $2030 (7%)
Doc Fee: $320
The dealer threw in free oil changes for 2 year / 24k miles.
One mistake I did though was I had second thoughts after we agreed on the purchase to have body side moldings, edge gaurds and all weather mats so didn't have much leverage there and I'm sure if I had included them in my initial negotiation I would have saved at least $100 from $561.75 I paid for these three on top of my OTD price.
Any comments on my purchase? Good? More room? About right?

Here in SE Michigan seems as if prices are nowhere near what I am seeing on this forum is pretty much the rest of the US. I don't get it. Following everything to the Tee. Still trying to weed out the real offers, but most of them are exactly alike almost to the dollar. Seems like some collusion going on if I didn't know better.
I even had 3 dealers who I got Trucar pricing from give me quotes above their Trucar price I have certificates for. I also checked the inventory levels and these guys have lots of Vehicles sitting. I think I am going to focus on Northern Ohio to check pricing.
Just curious did everyone's pricing get better after they starting engaging individual dealerships or did it start out close to what you ended up paying?

I shopped around Philly and Delaware, all dealers were very similar on price - around $30,000 for EX-L. Negotiations were limited, only a few hundred dollars off initial quotes. I bought at $29,900 + tax/title.

Thanks for the info. Well today I started to get some much different pricing. In fact almost $3K below what I had seen prior. At first all except 1 quote was over
$34K for EXL and over $33K for EX Models.
Guess I just needed to be a bit patient. I don't need to rush this anyway I can actually wait until End of June to pull the trigger if need be.
Still waiting for 3 dealers to respond. I have a good list of 3 I could deal with today if I wanted to move forward ASAP.
