At first I thought it was a bit high to pay $5k for an 11 year old car, but once I got home I plugged in all of the options, the mileage, the information about the body, and whether or not there are any defects of that nature into www.kbb.com and it returned an average retail price of about $6300+, so I don't feel as though I've payed too much. I do know that I will buy another Accord someday, probably long from now because it is such a nice car. However, I don't think I'll ever buy anything new simply because a person can get pretty much the same car that is a couple of years old for a whole lot less, and with Honda's certified used program it makes it a little easier to handle.
Thanks for the reply.

If you want to buy a camry V6 or a ES350 V6, you owe it to yoursleves to check out the transmission problem that the 6 speed transmission is experiencing now (the famous 3-4 flare problem). It is all over the camry and ES forum...

Did you take it to the dealership or did you take it to the mechancic. I am trying to figure out the best value for the money. I know that in a previous post on another part of this site I asked the same question and wasn't given a clear answer on where I should take it. What would you suggest? Dealer or mechanic in town? Dealer would be able to make right something which goes wrong? Hopefully.
Any idea as to where I should take it would be greatly appreciated. I am already planning on doing it with my tax return, if it's big enough.
Thanks for any advice.

I forgot to ask jensad how much it cost to take the car to a dealer if you went to the dealer. Chances are prices for labor and parts are probably standard for the Honda dealerships across the board.
Once again thanks in advance for the response.

I am getting $23200-$23500 price quotes from internet sales managers over the phone. Someone on this forum thought that you should be able to get one for $700-$1000 below invoice.

I took my 95 Honda to a dealer in 2002 to fix the window problem. The labor THEN I believe was about $75/hr. But then I live in the Bay Area i.e. California. However, over the 10 years I owned my Honda, that was the only repair I needed to do.
We also had an 95 Oddessy, sp, which had NO repairs done to it over our ownership. We purchased that vehicle from a local dealer that offerred a money back extended warranty if we had no repairs over seven years, and less than 75000 miles.
My wife had about 72000 miles when we got our money back.
Good luck to all and have a peaceful Xmas season.
The cost where I live now is around $ 100 per hour.

This's my first Honda and I'm pretty happy with it so far. I'm in Bay Area.
In response to a few quote inquries above, it should be quite easy to get $1000 below invoice (dest. charge included). Well, at least dealer invoice, which seems to be around $200 more than listed on edmunds. And you can push harder coz there's always someone willing to sell one more car for less.

I followed up two approaches. One dealer is in santa ana- Honda dealer who gives good quote and another I got from carsdirect.com. Both the quotes are competitive and matches each other.
Hope this helps.
