Is that 31K with taxes or without taxes?

31K without TTL. Probably could have done a hair better but I was ready to get the stupid thing done and get out of there.

Yes, the first dealer I went to wouldn't budge from MSRP since he only had one 2014 on the lot and assumed nobody else had any, but now I'm getting offers around $3000 under MSRP on 2014 EX-L so it seems reasonable that is about the invoice price (same spread as 2013). Someone upthread said they got about $200 under invoice on a 2014 which is the best I've seen so I wanted to be sure I was in the same ballpark.
#30270 of 30577 Price increase? Not sure of next move
Jul 10, 2013 (8:20 am)
Anyone know about the dealer cash/incentives? Any reason our price should be higher today
than Monday? I had two quotes on Monday (one in TN, one in GA) for 2013 EX-L
for around the price odyjbp got in Jasper (31600 incl tax) but the dealers are taking their time "checking" if the price is still good. Monday, at a local dealer (N. AL), DH decided he wanted a specific color (that they don't have) after we were just about where we wanted on price, so we walked out and maybe missed the boat Jasper is telling us "$31,500 plus taxes and fees, for a total price of $33,135.46" but not sure if I should tell them my other quotes to get him down since I am not sure they are still valid. Would prefer to buy within AL, and Jasper says they're getting the silver/gray DH wants. Interesting that someone posted about their good experience at Willett in Ga. I emailed Joel and just got a generic response from some other guy who didn't even give me a quote.
We are planning on financing (preapproved via honda) and two
Dealers, incl Jasper, have already told us we can still get the .9%. If the $750 was bringing
That price down and is gone, a higher price would be expected, I suppose.
I'm hoping they didn't go up, and if they did, not sure what to do since stock
Seems to be dwindling...

There were two incentives combinable with the special .9 APR that were set to expire on the 8th of July. These totaled 2500.00.
Another 750.00 in Honda flex cash exists for dealers that, according to other posts, have some left to award.
Also keep in mind that certain manufacturer incentives to dealers on volume could have expired. Ability to achieve manufacturer sales targets and incentives "encourages" dealers dot get more competitive.
With 2014's on the lot and an ability to hold higher prices on them you will likely find wiggle room on the 2013's significantly reduced. Dwindling inventories also hurts the consumer as certain preferences make it easier for dealers to hold higher prices on 2013's against closer to MSRP prices on 14's as still a better deal.
I'm sure the loss of Honda's 2500.00 in incentives is the fundamental reason you see a price change from Monday.

To be fair try to compare 2007 and 2008 side by side with equal mileage and then a 2003 and 2004? You will see that the differences are much narrower when you have owned to vehicle 5 or 10 years and the $3-4K you save today looks very good in comparison.

I purchased the Smoky Topaz model at Honda of El Cerrito today. This was the only place I found that has it in stock. The price was $34796.22 plus tax and fees. The price included $677 of dealer installed accessories which I didn't want. I accepted it because they matched a lower TrueCar price for a different dealership. Luckily, the $895 alarm system was not installed. I traded in a 2004 Acura MDX for $9500 ($500 dealer cash). 72 months finance at 1.9% for a lower payment with no early payoff penalty. $1526 for the 84 months 80000 miles extended warranty. During the final inspection, I found a ding on the driver's sliding door which I was told the dealership will fix. Overall, I think it was a good deal.

first I had negotiated for an exl with res for $31,250 on july 5 with 0.9 financing with a dealer in san diego. I thought this was a great deal. However, we wanted a white with beige interior and the only one they could find was in Riverside (about 100mile or so away). I had signed all the papers, got a dmv slip, and handed them a deposit. I come to find saturday morning that when their guy got there, the Riverside dealer had sold the car an hour before he got there. There seemed to be no exl with res with white and beige colors. I checked other local dealers and that seemed to be the case. Plus the wife was very against truffle. So we decided to try for an exl w/o res. But I knew I had to start all over again.
The dealer had to locate one. This time in el centro. they got the car, I saw it there, inspected it, and even test drove. I knew from this forums that sdody got one for around $28,800 so i was trying to go for that. They offered $30,250 and I walked out. Other local dealers had an exl with white and beige so i tried to call and get better prices. I was able to get the original dealer to go down to $29, 500. I believe sdody had good timing with the $700 dealer cash. no dealer seemed to have any left. Best deal from Pacific was $30,533 at that time.
So even though we didn't get the first car which i thought was a great deal and I still had to wheel and deal (it's their job, so can't really blame them for trying) , they were still the best price on our second choice. Didn't pay for any thing but tax and title. Oh I paid the $80 doc fee. I decided not to negotiate because it wasn't worth the hassle. Oh, I forgot when I went there in the afternoon (july 8) to accept their offer can you guess what happened (if you believe it)? That, oh there's another buyer coming down to get the car. I know what you're thinking, they're going to ask for more money. He did but as a joke. The manager said it's policy to hold or something like that the car for 24 hours since they went to the trouble of getting it for me and honored the $29,500 price. So OTD was $32,557.95. I have 9% sales tax $2,662.20...you people with 3 and 4%, so jealous. ttl was $297.75 I think that all added up right.
So thanks mossy for the best prices and the people on this forum for your price information. Next time I will try to only negotiate for a car that's in the lot!

I financed part of my car. Beware that there is a minimum of interest that needs to be paid. With mine I believe I have to pay at least $75 worth and if i paid before the amount, I pay the difference as a fee (i think that's right). Check the conditions for paying off early.
