Don't know if this is a good deal or not so good deal, but I woke up this morning smiling.
Accord EX 21900 before Tax & License. I was able to choose my color and had the dealer locate and deliver for an extra 150. I could have purchased the LX-P for 20500.
I test drove the car Sat. Negotiated a price on Sunday. Showed up late 7pm Monday to see the car, invoice and price breakdown. At the last minute I asked the Internet/Salesperson to have the used car manager look at my possible trade in, a 2002 VW Passat. He asked me what number I had in mind. I said 7000 would be great. They came back with 6000. Finally we settled on 6250. My real number that I expected to hear based on miles, condition, electrical issues, etc was 4000 to 5000. If I kept it and tried to sell it myself my asking price would have been 6000. Finally I made it to the finance guy. I told him .9 % or I walk. It took him 20 seconds to find .9% for me.
In summary... Did I get a good deal. To me yes. To some of you yes yes yes. And to some I no. It all depends on if you wake up the next morning smiling about your deal.
Sorry it was long, but I hope this helps someone.

Sounds good to me, and I'm in AL, where prices should be a little lower.

I just got (7/7/08) a 2008 I4 EX-L from Spirit Honda (El Monte) for:
$23397. + 670 (dest fees).
You should ask for Tom or David in the internet/fleet department, I already knew what car I wanted so I negotiated the whole deal over the phone (while I was selling my old car) and went over, completed all the contracts and financing in 1 hour!
Being a younger female, it can be intimidating to buy a car (especially because they think you don't know anything), but really those guys made it super easy for me.
I was talking to people at Goudy, Miller, Colonial, Pasadena and Spirit beat them all.
Go see them - it is no pressure and no haggle - don't see the floor sales guys - contact the internet dept first, tell them the deal you are looking for and only go in if they can match it!

I also enquired about the EX-L V6, but forgot the exact price quote. Your numbers sound real close to what I remember. I think it was 3500+ minus Taxes & Lic over the LX-P price of 20500. They were real firm on the EX-L's and did'nt budge. The EX-L is a nice auto for that price.

Now that Honda has released the dealer incentives/rebates for the month of July, can you please share the breakdown as you have done for previous months?

For anyone interested, I picked up an EX-L V6 (no nav) for 27,800.00 OTD and 0.9% financing on 7/7 Livermore Honda. Received matching / email offers from 3 other dealerships in the East Bay / Central Valley area. No hassles at all.
