Based on my deal I think you got a good one and have doubts if the dealer will go lower, but then anything is possible.
Beware of the dealer trying to hike the price up by $200 to $500 more when you go to close the deal. I had that experience. One dealer (dealer A) nearer my home said they would honor the $25615 price of another dealer (dealer B) over the phone. When I went to dealer A to close the deal I was told by the salesman that the price from dealer B was not the bottom line and that dealer B would add an additional $551 worth of dealer installed options. Dealer A also told me I could not order a car without these dealer installed options. Of course that was a total lie. I called dealer B about this and was told by the sales lady that I could order the car from the factory and not have to get any dealer installed options but if I wanted three desirable items, wheel locks, mud flaps and guards for the door and wheel well edges they would cost me $245. But I could get the car without any of this. If I got the dealer to do the paper work in titling and tagging, the dealer would charge me a $100 processing fee. So just look out for this sort of thing when you go to the dealer to close the deal.
I did my initial contacts with the Honda dealers through INTERNET pricing which was offered on the EDMUND's web site.
I paid $25615 plus $635 destination charge for an EX-L V6 (that is with leather but without GPS). This is $198 above invoice price. Since leather I think is about $1000 more, perhaps you got a better deal then me.
The 4 cylinder EX-L price quoted me was $2188 lower then the V6 price. That price is dealer invoice.
I was surprised to find that at a newly redesigned Honda Accord would be offered at invoice so soon. Last year the newly redesigned CR-V was flying out the showroom flood at full list. I sort of expected the same for the new 2008 Accord.
Any time you can get a newly designed Accord at invoice at he beginning of the model run I think it is a great buy. Since the 2007 was now old design I am thinking that any left are going for perhaps $3000 or more below invoice.

From what I was told by another finance manager, the higher down less rate theory works when trying to get financing through other banks the dealer is working with but not through Honda finance. Honda Finance goes specifically with high credit ratings which seems like Japs has. I think most finance managers like to hook you up with outside banks than honda finance,

I purchased this vehicle today for $28,137.96 OTD but without tax as the vehicle is to registered in another state. My local dealers were only discounting up to $800 off invoice.

I guess there are just people that love controversy.
My numbers are real. I have a 840 FICO score. The rate offered me is the rate for SUPER PREFERRED. You cant get any better or any lower interest rate unless I put down more cheese (10k they said).
Funny how most here choose to believe the fools that come here and quote insane numbers that are pure fiction, then when "real' numbers are given, you have the know it alls say what jb turner said.
In total, I dealt with 7 dealerships, as well as my best friend who is a GM of Honda. Invoice deals on the Coupe are pure fantasy. Paying 500 over as I did irratated me, but it was the best to be had in the upstate NY, Conn area.
Oh...I DID NOT buy from my friend. He was 200 higher.

My score was 830ish as of summertime and I do not need to finance.
I admit you do have a good price so long as only tax is not included...however if you have to pay doc fee... this fee and that fee you got raped. Can you breakdown the prices for us before tax?

"Honda finance does not offer that rate especaily based upon if you put more down you get a better rate. "
jb_turner, you are again incorrect. But you state it with such authority.
I am financing about $10K on my 2008 Accord through American Honda Financial at 5.44%. No ifs ands or buts about it.
