#21217 of 32173 Bought: Accord LX-S coupe auto in Austin/San Antonio, TX
Jul 12, 2008 (11:28 am)
After reading everyone's discussions and asking some questions of my own, I figured I'd chip in on my own experiences. I was shopping in the Austin/San Antonio/Round Rock areas, and I ended up buying a red ext./black int. automatic Accord LX-S coupe for $21,200 pre-TTL; after a $3,000 "trade-in" (Drive Clean Across Texas voucher program) and TTL, it came out to $19,550.
The best offer I got in Austin/Round Rock was $21,400 pre-TTL. I got my car at Gillman Honda in San Antonio. Not too much pressure on the warranties, altho the finance manager offered the extended warranty "at cost" ($600-700). I still declined.
Anyway, thanks for everyone's help! Although I wish it were a manual transmission, there were only 4-5 of them on sale in the state of Texas, and no dealer nearby was able to locate one. Oh well, I still love my new coupe . Quite an upgrade from my old 1993 Honda Civic DX (with missing right side mirror):

You are neglecting to add the destination charge of 670.00.

The price given to me is with EVERYTHING included. Good price or not?

so the price i was given today was 23818.00 plus tax title license etc.. for the EX-L 4cyl. just 300 above invoice. I assume if they were to do that this quick without much negotiation then they would go lower? offered me 1500 for my 1998 Jetta which is low but overall sounds like a pretty reasonable deal especially given the current Honda financing specials...

I just got a quote for a 2008 Accord Sedan EX-L V6 w/Nav- $30,800 OTD. I believe that is a fair price at about 1K over invoice. I've not met a dealer yet that will give me invoice out the door. I'd like to walk out at 29k even, but I'm not confident in that price. Am I on the right track?

What's the name of the dealer that provided you with this quote?

I was at the dealer today (SoCal) they offer me $23,300 for EXL 4cyn auto. plus TTL . I did not do it cuz they offer me too low on my trade in. After July 4 weekend sale , the dealership look pretty empty. I think you can get lower. Good luck

EXL V6 auto coupe with NAV can be had for $29,500 OTD so 29 even OTD is definitely doable for a sedan.

thanks i'll see what they'll do.. Its weird since first they said they wouldnt go below MSRP and now they are close to invoice. So do dealers actually pay the invoice price ? Are there big kickbacks from Honda to a dealer just for the sale, for the financing etc in order for them to sell it for around or less than invoice? The price I got was in So Cal too - San Diego.

What I think Isellhondas meant was your invoice price didn't include the destination charge of $670. The real invoice price should be $24,188. ($23,518 + $670 = $24,188).
