lmao. I was told the same thing when I asked a dealer about the LX-P for 21.4k OTD. They told me it's too low and I must of heard it wrong. They even told me to get it before it's too late. I told them I heard it right and they then told me to come to the dealership and they'll work together with me to get the best deal. YEAH RIGHT!!! When a dealer tells you this, it's total BS.
I went and brought my LX-P from Hardin Honda for 21.4K OTD. The other dealer called me back to see if I was still interested in the car still. I told them I just brought the car for 21.4K OTD.

Sorry, no volume bonuses, at least with Honda.
Yes, they can make money on financing and why shouldn't they? A customer can always seek out their own financing if they desire.
Do you have a problem with a business making a (gasp) prrofit or do you just have a problem with a car dealership making a profit?
It takes, literally MILLIONS of dollars to open a dealership today and the overhead is staggering to say the least.
A dealer willing to invest that kind of money in a business that is tough and competitive DESERVES a nice lifestyle!
#21059 of 32180 EX-L in Austin - $24060
Jul 01, 2008 (2:56 pm)
Closed the deal last night for 4 cyl EX-L Sedan Auto no navi in Austin -
Price was higher than I could have done in Houston/Dallas but was the best I could get in Austin/San Antonio area by about $300 or so.
This included destination and also the pin stripe/sealants/door/wheel guard package (supposed list of $895). Final drive out after tax, etc. was about $25,700
Did no-money-down financing at 0.9%, so first time I walked out of dealership without writing any check -
Dealer experience was fine - very professional - minimal pressure for add-ons or extended warranty. Out in 2 hours, big part of time waiting for car to be cleaned because they were selling a fair number of vehicles last night.

In regards to the Volume bonuses, please read below from a post that I found on here. Get your facts straight before you correct people.
I am a Honda dealer in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Here in the Twin Cities all six dealer co-op advertising (commercials, Strib, Pioneer Press, twincitieshondadealers.com ETC...). As a result, each invoice has an added $200.00 to reflect our co-op fee's. This is a legit charge that is added at the factory - not at dealership level. Here is how the pricing breaks down:
26495.00 Honda MSRP
24263.00 Co-op advertising adjusted invoice
-727.00HOLD BLACK (only 485.00 is the HTB - the other 242.00 covers fixed costs)
-400.00 Honda special advertising adjustment (4cyl Accords only - payable ONLY if you hit 110% of your volume Honda sets for your store)

Good stuff. I am sure isellhondas will say that must be a fake posting or it's not a "bonus" but rather he will have some other name for it. They just can not tell the whole truth. Always shades of it. Very sad.
#21062 of 32180 Re: Please Help!! Cancelling an Extended Service Warranty [nautica35]
Jul 01, 2008 (8:22 pm)
Today I'm a big fan of extended warranties. Just brought my Nissan truck home after it threw an engine bearing last week. Total cost to fix it was just over $5,000. All I paid was the $50 deductible on my warranty. Without commenting on the durability of Nissan or any other car maker for that matter, s**t happens. The odds are good you'll never need that warranty. But for me, I'll never buy another car without it. And you can negotiate the cost with the dealer. When I bought the truck they originally offered the warranty for $1,200. I said no thanks. They then came down to $750. Again, I said no thanks. Finally at $539 I said yes. Right now, that's the smartest decision I ever made.

It can be done, my silver lxp is home, it was about 21.6 including that f'n conveyance fee of 299 which they wouldn't budge on. The only thing they "threw" in was the locking wheel nuts for the alloy rims. Supposedly, at a cost of 20074, they are only making $130 on the car.
#21064 of 32180 I didn't buy the Honda Care, tonight
Jul 01, 2008 (9:12 pm)
I was offered the Honda care for 7 years, 60k miles, for $900, or 999,, I can't remember. It could be extended to 7 years, 72k miles for about a cnote.....Hmmm??Also, the tire and rim protection for 3 years, for $382.. This one I am wondering about since my mom was aiming for storm drains all night when she drove the car home from the dealer...
I don't see her putting more than a thousand or two on the car, per year. But, there are lots of storm drain grates on the streets around her. She doesn't want to crown the center line,, and yes she is a senior citizen..
I have a week to decide in order to get these "discounted" prices,,, and Yes, I turned down the Simonize service, what ever that is.
I like the idea of an extended bumper to bumper, but,, I need to get more info on prices, etc.. Any links to better prices would be appreciated.
#21065 of 32180 Sacramento or Bay Area LX-P deals
Jul 02, 2008 (3:18 am)
I'm collecting internet quotes from NOrthern CA for an automatic LX-P. Lowest so far is 20,200 - that would be around 22,220 out the door. Is this a good deal? Any advice on how to approach a cash sale with the dealer?
#21066 of 32180 Re: Anyone buy an LX-P from Illinois? [williwaw]
Jul 02, 2008 (3:22 am)
I'm looking for an LX-P too in Norcal. The best quote for an automatic I've received is from Dublin HOnda - 20,200 (22,220 otd). Which dealerships did your quotes come from?
