when will the 2009 honda come out?
will it be much more expensive than the 2008's that they are selling on the lots now?
No, it'll probably be the same price because the 08 has been redesign so the next 4/5 years will look like the 08 accord right now. Look at all the other generation of Accord before that. They keep the same design for 4/5 years. So, the 2008-2012 will be consider the 8th generation Accord. Nothing will be new and the 09 will be the same as the 08. Plus, the economy is not good right now so prices will not go up as Accords are not moving as fast as the Civics.
seems like a lot of accords in inventories on dealer lots
Yes, there are many. Accords do not move as much as Civics because of gas prices and the economy.
what will the 2009 have that the 2008 accord does not?
It'll both be the same. Same answer as above.
am I better off buying a 2008 for the price advantage?
It's up to you. Wait til the 09 comes out before getting the 08. You can negotiate more because dealers will want to move the 08 to make room for the 09. Don't worry about selection being low because you can select from the 09, if what you want from the 08 is not available anymore. Why pay the same price for the 09 when you can get the 08, which is the same car, for cheaper by haggling(must be at least
$1000 below invoice to be consider cheaper, IMO).?
will there be any upcoming deals to get rid of hte 2008's before the 2009's come out?
I don't know about this.
what is better? an accord or a camry?
Camry are for older people while the accord is more for the younger generation. My parent just got a new camry and i don't like it as much as the accord. Accord is for male while camry is for female.
I like them both but the accord is about 1500 more for a 2008 versus a 2009 camry
what gives with that?
Because the Accord is a cooler car. I like the Accord more because of how it handles. The camry isn't good at handling. This is what I got from driving both the accord and camry. Camry are cheaper than Accord in term of pricing but both are reliable car. Not that much difference between the features that comes with it. Accord have vehicle stability, camry doesn't. Camry has lumber support, Accord doesn't. etc....

For southern California honda dealers try Hardin Honda in Anaheim and Honda of Hollywood. They both have good reputations and are low haggle dealers...use the internet dept's. I got my EX-L 4cyl Sedan at Hollywood Honda.

The rumor I heard from a couple of dealers is that the '09's are coming out sooner this year. Time line is mid-august. There's also going to be a diesel for the '09. Otherwise they didn't know of any changes made to the '09's.

Congratulations! I got the same car. It's been a great car so far. I really like the Mystic green color and the black leather doesn't get too hot, although I did get the windows tinted.

After an hour in the sun black leather is not going to be any hotter then tan, grey, pink, purple etc. It heats up quicker, but after an hour all colors are the same temp.

That is true but that's why they make tint. Huper Optiks all the way, the best heat rejection out there!
