If you believe the dealer pays invoice for a car...... my hats off to you... I would guess the actual price paid by the dealer is somewhere in the 20 percent below invoice range.
I agree but I think 20% below invoice is a bit too much. IMO, I think it's about 10 to 15%. For a 25K car, dealers can still make about 3K even if they sell it at invoice.

My wife and I test-drove both an Altima 2.5 with SL package (moonroof, leather, XM, etc.) and a comparably-equipped Accord EX-L. I'd agree with the assessment that the Altima was a bit "sportier", primarily due to its lighter weight. The quality of the interior was superior in the Honda - the wood trim looks like wood whereas the Nissan's looked more like a plasticized sticker. Both were comfortable but the Honda is decidedly roomier, especially in the back seat. I didn't like the whine of the Nissan's CVT transmission but having a manual option was nice.
In the end, we bought the Honda EX-L with splashguards and wheel locks for 24K before TTL (total OTD around 25.2K). It seemed to be more car for the money, even though the Nissan could be had for a slightly cheaper price, and it certainly exuded a feel of quality that the Nissan lacked.
FWIW, that same day we also test-drove a Chevy Malibu LTZ 2.4L which we assessed to be superior to the Altima in terms of quality and appearance. Had its four cylinder engine been stronger and a few other minor issues addressed, it would have been a tough call between the Honda and the Chevy. It's good to see American design is alive and well - only time will tell if American quality has returned as well.

Wow that sounds like a good deal after all the research I've done. So $23,300 was what you paid OTD? I hope to purchase my vehicle in the next couple weeks!

I am looking at purchasing the Honda Accord V6 EXL in the dallas area. Please let me know what price I should accept. I have noticed several dealerships have add on's for an additional 3K.

What was your OTD price, where did you buy your EX-L and did you have to haggle to get it? Thanks

Was the car you just purchased a coupe or sedan? Cloth or leather interior? 4-cyl or 6-cyl? I am in the market for a Honda Accord EX coupe, 4-cyl, cloth interior and would like to know what they are going for. I am looking in OH and surrounding areas. Thanks in advance.

OTD coming to around $21160.

Where did you purchase your car at this price? What was your OTD #? I am in the market for an Accord EX coupe 4-cyl, cloth interior, and your offer puts my initial offer to shame. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am in the market for the above (cloth interior), and wanted to run a dealer quote by you all and get some feedback...
$22,943 (after destination) + $250 doc fee + OH tax (6.75%) + $25.50 license fee for a grand total of $24,784.02 OTD.
Has anyone gotten a better deal in OH or surrounding areas? On a bigger scale, is this a good deal or should i push them for better? How much lower do you all think i should try to go?
Perspective would be much appreciated. Thanks!

"I agree but I think 20% below invoice is a bit too much. IMO, I think it's about 10 to 15%. For a 25K car, dealers can still make about 3K even if they sell it at invoice."
And THAT is the mis-information that is being tossed aroud here as if it were ture! Agin, dealer holdback (the difference from invoice to actual dealer cost) is 3%! There are no volume discounts, no specail pricing for prefered dealers.
