Thanks for the update. I am targeting the exact same car (although I had to be converted to the leather). I am planning on buying by the end of June in the St. Louis area. The last Honda we bought was purchased from Stephen Vincel using the internet to request quotes. It was a really smooth purchase. The price quoted at that time, 2004, was the one the gave when I walked in. I don't think we were in the dealership more than 1 1/2 hour.
Hope this goes as smoothly.

Here in Los Angeles almost all dealers add on wheel locks and mud flaps for around $200 but I just made them take that off my price when I bought my EX-L last week.

I think you got a really good price. I bought a LX automatic just over two months ago and paid little over $20K (OTD). When doing my research, I figured that paying more than $1000 for a LX-P is not a got deal. So in other words, if you can get a LX-P for around $21-21,500K, its a good deal. Congratulations on your Accord. Its a really nice car and you made a excellent choice. This is my first Accord I have ever bought. Best two months of car ownership I have ever had.

#20772 of 32200 delaer add ons
Jun 12, 2008 (9:25 am)
I live in the Dallas area and every Honda dealer I have been to all have multiple dealer add ons on all the cars. I am looking for a coupe but see these on every car in the lot. The common three add ons are "hand painted" pin stripes, a "pro" package with mats, wheel locks, and then the paint sealant and scotch guard.
Obviously these all have a high dealer mark up (some dealers more than others,2x to 3x) and the price can be negotiated on, but its not about the cost, but the appearance of the car, I'd rather not have a car with any add-ons that can't be removed, like the pin stripes,
Wondering if that is the case everywhere or just in TX.

Look at it from the dealer's prespective. They sold a car and now the buyer is trying to renegotiate the price...and promising additional business if he does so.
There's a reason why contracts over a certain amount must be in writing to be enforceable - to avoid situation like this.
If your family truly believes the dealership pulled a fast one - take your business elsewhere. If not, buy from them again but read the contract before signing.

Hey guys I just got a quote online from a dealer in MD of $25,641 + ttl for the 6mt v6. Is this a good quote? I know it is a bit above invoice and I'm wondering if they'll bite for $25,000.

I don't know. You have to itemize (TTL) tax, title and license and other fees such as doc., processing, etc. Some states have 10% tax and some have only 3%. So we have no way of knowing if your otd price is good or not.

Hi...sorry for the delay in response. I called the same number (taken off their website). I talked to some guy in customer relations (do not recall his name) and he didn't know the answer to my question about holdback being 2 or 3%. He put me on hold for several minutes and came back on the line with an answer of 2% holdback (which used to be 3% last year) and the 1.5% balance transfer. He had not heard of a balance transfer either until someone in the office mentioned it and he was not able to explain what it was exactly, except to say it was a percentage taken off MSRP. Unfortunately, I do not know who he asked or if he dialed another dept to find out, which is always possible. Sorry I can't be of more help in that regard. Take care.
