I bought my car in Boch Honda, MA. 23,300 for a 4-CYL EX-L Coupe is an OK price I feel. There sure is more room for negotiation I feel. For an EX I suggest not paying more than 21,000. Be sure to think about the APR also, they may give you a good deal on the car, but will get you at the APR (If you are going with Honda or their financing). Always have an idea of what your bank is offering and try to work on an APR less than that.
#21345 of 32200 Prices for an Accord Sedan EX-L Automatic in New Jersey
Jul 21, 2008 (4:56 am)
I'm a widow and getting ready to buy my first car in many years by myself. I liked my local dealership but I want to go in the negotiation with other buyer's prices in New Jersey if possible. The salesman originally asked me if I would be interested in the car at invoice plus $200. (Invoice includes dest fee.) It looks like people in some other parts of the country are doing better than this. This dealership doesn't seem to have many choices but seems to get some in everyday so I don't know if they are using that as a pricing thing. Does anyone have any fairly recent experience in New Jersey? Thank you.

Thank you so much for your response. I really appreciate it. I intend to meet with the dealer this week. Hopefully they will be true to their offer.

Hey all, looking to help out my sister in law with a new Accord she's looking at.
2008 Honda Accord
EX-L 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Here was the offer:
25,624.00 which included remote start installed. EX-L, Auto with NAV
7.50 Tire Fee
9.00 some misc DMV fee
349.00 4 years of registration.
28,067.18 out the door.
I wanted to run it by some folks here. This is in the Central NJ area. Edmunds has the invoice at 26,086 for this model including 660 destination charge. Remote start usually MSRP's for 500 bucks. So the offer of 25,624.00 seems like a very good one? I feel like I'm missing something.

What's the deal with registration for 4 years? I live in Alabama, and pardon my ignorance, but I have no idea what you are talking about. We buy tags anually, and my "registration" is my tag purchase receipt. Other than that I know of no "registration" unless I'm forgetting something myself. What we do have is only renewed anually.
Thanks in advance...
Regarding the price on the EX-L Navi 2.4 5AT, the price seems pretty darn good, especially considering that remote start is included. Tax is quite high it seems, but nothing to do about that I guess!

Dont get me started on our taxes. It's brutal.
Oh yeah in NJ at least, you can register a new car for 4 years instead of the typical 1 year. So it's basically the DMV registration fee x 4. I think(?) this is pretty standard here... if not someone let me know heh.
The price seems too good. I'm gonna have to have her double check it.
EDIT: You know what I'm thinking now... that price sounds like it's for manual transmission. It would make more sense. I'm gonna have to ask her to check that.
Manual invoice for an EX-L with Nav is $25,363. Plus a few hundred for remote start. Hmm.

In Arizona the registration for the car you are buying is about $500 for one year!

What about tag and dealership fees?
