Thanks very much for the information. I emailed Silko and they responded right away for clarification but I haven't heard from them since. The extended warranty would've been nice though. It seems like it would cost ~$1,700 elsewhere.
Herb Chambers gave me a quote of $24,560 for the Coupe and $24,470 for the Sedan (2009, automatic, 4 cyl, EX-L). It's interesting how the price that gave you is $1k lower than what I got. Then again, the demo car that I mentioned in the first post is from Herb Chambers so perhaps they were still trying to push that car to me.
I did email several other places and the one worth mentioning is Honda Village, $23,460 for the sedan and $23,660 for the coupe. I ended up going with Boch Honda, after having worked out the price on the phone with a sales manager, and because of the color selection.
Below is the breakdown of what I paid for a 2009 Accord Coupe EX-L, automatic:
Base price: $23,400
Added wheel locks: $91
5% MA Sales Tax: $1174.55
Title Preparation w/ registration: $86.00
Documentary Preparation: $298.00
TOTAL PRICE: $25,049.55
It seems like the best way to go is to negotiate with a sales manager. In my case, the prices that they give over the phone/email, are the lowest that they're willing to go so my advice is to email as many sales managers as you can in your area and don't waste your time by going to a dealership thinking you can negotiate much lower in person.
Oh, and in response to jb_turner about backing out on the proposed price: in order to move forward and actually propose the price, I needed to put down a deposit and it would be for a car that they needed to swap with another dealer. So there was the risk of the car being damaged upon transportation (someone driving it and not being delivered on a flatbed truck), and that's assuming that the car can even be swapped. And if it can't, my deposit would be locked down for an indefinite amount of time.
Thanks again to everyone and happy shopping!

The invoice for a 2009 Accord EXL w/ Navi, automatic, is $25,788 (destination included) according to edmunds pricing. I think it's reliable b/c a lot of the dealerships that I've visited have shown me the same invoice price sheets as what I found.
Some dealers have also given me invoices that are higher than what I found, but just tell them that your research tells you otherwise. And don't forget that the invoice is not their actual cost for the car. There is also the dealer holdback and floorplan interest, so their actual cost for a car is hundreds below invoice. Of course, the dealers also need to make some money so I wouldn't argue to buy the car at the actual cost. I think $400 below the edmunds invoice would be pretty good. Good luck!

initialj - thanks for the reply. Since he quoted almost 1000 over edmunds invoice, even with their 'special' they are still 600 over true invoice . I've since sent him an email to ask about why his invoice price is so high. My guess is he is just plain lying .
I think i'm gonna sit tight for a bit, im in no rush, and the way the car industry is going i think someone will offer me invoice sooner or later! I'm also looking into the sonata which is significantly cheaper anyway. If i can't get invoice on the accord i'm not sure its worth the 4 or 5 grand more. Anyway thanks for the data. I dont know how people bought cars without the power of the internet!
#22349 of 32206 Honda Accord 09'
Nov 18, 2008 (11:21 am)
So I am looking at buying the 09' Accord EX V6 Sedan and i'm located in houston. I'm looking for some assistance; has anyone recently purchased an accord from houston and willing to share info on:
what the out the door or drive out price paid was
what interest rate they got
any dealers they recommend in houston
OR what about anyone who has received good deals at John Eagle Honda on Jones Rd?

Where did you buy your 09 EX-L? I am in the market for an 08 EX-L and the best offer I got so far is only $500 below what you paid. The Honda dealers are pretty firm in Houston. Maybe I should go for an 09 EX-L.
Did you ever end up purchasing your Accord or find out any good deals in Houston? What dealerships were you looking at?
Thanks in advamce

Prices I've gotten this week for '09's:
Accord sedan EX-L I4 auto $24,270
Accord sedan EX-L I4 auto w/nav $26,349
Last month I got a price of $25,000 for an '08 w/nav (from a different dealer that had the best price a year ago for a Ridgeline). They still have about 8 of these, I need to check back to see if it dropped.]
I think they can all do better.
btw, I'm in NJ.

kk26, I am also shopping for a new Accord here in Houston. I checked John Eagle Honda, and all I got was the run around. They had the "Eagle Advantage", which had some quality additions, but they were not competitive on price to the bottom line. I have also shopped Gillman Honda which claims to be the # 1 volume dealer in this region. They were very competitive, but not as good as Streater Smith Honda in Conroe. I contacted them and asked for the "Sam's Club" price, and immediately I got a quote for $200 below invoice with no required add-ons, such as $295 wheel locks, $500 potection pack (which I consider to be worthless), and other such nonsense. Goodson Honda advertises "No one beats a Goodson Deal", but that's all hype. Good Luck with your shopping!

$300 wheel locks??? the msrp on those is like $55 on the acura website!
