I just bought this car (with navi) in Northern CA. It is a super nice car. It has been rated 5 stars pertaining to engineering, reliability, safety & over all value by one of major automobile critics (Roads & Drivers ?). According to this critics, this year 2008 one Audi A4, one Benz C class & this Accord are chosen as best cars of the year. The Audi and the Benz only got 3 stars of overall value while he gave this top Accord 5 stars in 3 or 4 different categories.
If you like the Navi tells you the street names when you turn instead of less accurate instructions such as "Turn right at the next quarter mile..." remember to (1) Set up the Navi, (2) Guidance prompt and (3) Select MAX.
Good pricing for this car in the last 2 weeks was between $28,500 - $29,500 + state sale tax + license fee. Also, try to talk sweet to the sale/ internet manager to get free spalsh (mudd) guards & wheel locks, etc as I did it.
Enjoy your brand-new car. You will never be turned down by a Honda. This top Accord is a "super beast".
Happy & loyal Honda buyer for over 40 years
Polished metal '08 Accord V6 EX-L w/ navi, gray leather
This top Accord is my sixth Accord V6 EX including the '05 Accord hybrid

I'm looking to buy a 2008 Accord Sedan EX-L V6 in the next month or so. This is my first time ever buying a new car so I'm not sure how all this works.
Anyone having any prices for this same car in Los Angeles / Orange County area? What should I expect to pay?
I didn't get the EX but I'm in Los Angeles & got the best price from Honda of Santa Monica. I sent requests to about five or six dealers around LA. No loan, no trade in & no extras. They were nice . It was a good experience.
If you're in Los Angeles the tax, licence, DMV charges comes out to an additional 10%.

If you want to drive up to Northern California, I just received the following quotes from Grace Honda:
23,640 + TTL for EX V6 Sedan
25,740 + TTL for EX-L V6 Sedan
Anyway, I was quoted 24,000 earlier for the EX V6 by Oakland Honda. I think the price from Grace Honda is as good as it'll get. It's around $20 or so over the "true" invoice (invoice-holdback).
By the way Stephanie, send me an e-mail and I can e-mail you the name of the salesperson. Get a quote from him and see if your local dealer will match it. It's a huge price difference so chances are they will either match it or come very close to it. Or you can just drive up here and buy it.

I also add 10% on top of base price in Northern CA. Just take the final base price offered by the dealer and multiplying it with 1.096 you will have the total OTD amount. Last time, the business manager dragged me for another hour trying to sell me lot of BS stuff. However, I flatly turned him down.

Just received an e-mail back from Grace Honda regarding the EX V6:
2008 Honda Accord EX-V6 Sedan AT: $23,640
Sounds reasonable to me. They don't have the car in-stock so they have to do a dealer trade, so he wants a $1000 refundable CC deposit.

These prices do not include navigation. Is it correct?

$23,640 includes destination? That's an incredible price - I thought invoice on that car was $24,153 (including destination). That's a great negotiating job!
Anyone know where I can get a price like that in NY/NJ/CT?

Thanks Blane...once i have that final sales price, how does one go about figuring out the lease price...i know there is a residual and money factor but i do not know how we get to a fair monthly lease...assume 6% sales tax in pa, supper credit, nothing down, 3 yrs, and 12Kmiles...for 27K negotiated price, hwo does a monthly lease break down??

No, but Parviz on this forum did buy a Navi model from this dealer for a hair under 28,000 + TTL recently.
