The $25,100 OTD price has all the costs built in, including the 3% NC sales tax. So do you think that I am paying too much or should I go ahead and pull the trigger on this pruchase? Anyone is free to jump in here or if someone in NC received a better price for the same type of car, please feel free to contact me or just post on the forum. Thanks

You might could go a little lower (invoice would be my target and you are right at it), but if you feel comfortable with the deal, and the people you are dealing with, I'd buy the car. Having a comfortable buying experience can be worth a lot more than a few hundred dollars saved elsewhere.

Too much but fine.
3% tax means $750 and per the above posters notes it's only a good deal if your tax was over $900.

What dealer in NC are you working with? The deal sounds better than I have been offered around the Charlotte area.

Killer deal, there! That's encouraging. I'm all over the map on what to buy (TL, G35, even and Audi A3), but the V6 Coupe is still in the running. Thanks for posting, great forum!

Okay so after such a horrible experience at Riverside Metro yesterday (see post #20688 - http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.ef006d2/20687)
I went to the other dealership (Honda Santa Ana) and am a VERY happy customer. Did not even have to talk pricing at all (even without a written quote), the price agreed upon was honored and I was treated very nicely, given my experience from the day before it is a breath of fresh air to be treated so well and honestly. The internet/fleet guy was experienced very easy going, true relationship selling and personable.
I got a Nighthawk Black EX-L V6 Coupe AT - $26,100 (vehicle price no TTL), no problems at all, I was still somewhat bitter from the day before was very defensive and on guard to the sales manager when he came out to see if I'd be interested in adding a cosigner on the loan to see if they can beat the bank rate but understood when I firmly said no and I will leave immediately.
In the end they did beat the bank, barely but they did beat rate so got the loan under same terms, no problem giving the loan to the dealership
Day and Night from one dealership to another - the number quoted is the number received. No hassle. Also received - Wheel Locks, Splash Guards and 25% tint....at no extra charge. ------------------------------------------------------

I hear you about being all over the place. I have a lease ending on a G35. That is my preference for a replacement but it doesn't seem like Infiniti wants to lease cars right now. If history repeats itself they won't lease well again until next March. Especially with the new G37 sedan coming out.
An Accord EXL 6 Sedan is in the picture and I was also going to take a look at the 09 Mazda6 but I bet they will lease very poorly. Then the flip side says save some money and get a 4 cylinder Accord or even cheaper a Mazda3.

You can definetly do better. I just purchased a EXL-V6 sedan for $25,375.00 + TTL in Michigan a couple of weeks ago. Plus I received the 2.9% financing they offered in June.

Hey everyone, I've been a reader but not a poster on these boards for the past few months, and have found them to be a great help. I just leased a 2008 accord v6 coupe, and i think i got a pretty good deal. I thought i would share the numbers with you:
Long Island, New York
2008 Honda Accord EX-L v6 Coupe silver/black NO NAV
MSRP 28310 + 660 Dest.
36 mos, 12K, through Honda Finance
$1850 up front (tax, title, fees, NO 1st payment etc)
also $200 cap cost reduction paid up front
Sales tax rate is 8.65%
Again, i think this is a good deal, and i wanted to share. If not, well, oops its too late. The car is absolutely gorgeous. IMO the 18" rims and foglights make all the difference on the 6-cyl vs the 4.
Thanks again everyone for posting these things that have definitely made me somewhat more knowledgeable about the leasing process.
