I don't know who in So. CA you got your price from, but try Penske Honda in Ontario. When I got my 2008 EXL V6, they beat everyone else by a mile. I don't agree that dealers won't give quotes. I emailed 6 local dealers and got very quick replies from them all. In a big metropolitan area like LA, they know they have to give the best price right up front. At $24,855 before TTL, Penske beat them all. Good luck.

it will be more helpful to include more details, tax rate, financing/cash (if financing, financing rate), trade-in if any, price breakdown (like below) and etc
Sale price - (including destination)
Doc fee - (any amount you paid)
Reg Fee - (if you paid any)
It will be easier for everyone to gauge, rather than giving just a vague figures

A reporter from a national newspaper would like to speak with consumers who have been frustrated by some manufacturers’ tendency to place safety related vehicle options into expensive packages. Have you ever wanted to equip a vehicle with specific safety features that required the purchase of an entire package? If so, please respond to jwahledmunds.com with your daytime contact information no later than Friday, December 12.

Good Job! I am in the market for the same model (in PA, but I like NC, so I might drive down!) and I was curious if you could provide a breakdown. The sales tax rate in particular? Thanks and enjoy the new car!

Here's the deal I just closed on:
2009 Accord Coupe EX-L i4 w/Navi (Polished Metal)

A few weeks ago I was looking for a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L V6 w/ Navigation. I was quoted $28,400... including destination charge and added bonuses of wheel locks + splash guards (in Maryland). It was too much for my taste... even if I got them to go down further.
So I asked them to take off the navigation but everything else the same. They came back with $26,400. I thought that was pretty good, as all the dealers I was contacting weren't budging.
Today I get an email from one of the dealers saying they can give me the same car (just without navigation) for $25,900. I was surprised at such a large discount after I already got them down to what I thought was near the bottom. The woman has a few in stock.
I then went to the nearby Honda dealer that does not budge on their pricing... it's what's on the car and that's it (I honestly don't know how they stay in business). I saw the same car I was looking to buy... but it was a 4 cyl... and the price was only $50 less than what my deal is for the V6. I asked the guy if that was their bottom price and he said... well, typically it is... but there was a memo that came down this past weekend and they are now discounting cars to at or below invoice.
Makes sense to me why all of a sudden today I get the email stating the car's price dropped $500 a week later. I live in Delaware, but the dealers live in Maryland. I'll still pay the 3.75 tax in Delaware, cause that's where I'll be registering the car. So... a new 2009 Honda Accord EX-L V6 costs $25,900 which includes destination. Only thing to add to that is the 3.75 tax, tags and title.
I believe it to be a really good deal.

Aftermarket wood trim? I guess you didn't know that ALL Accords with Ivory interior have wood trim from the factory.
BTW, what was your selling price?
#22458 of 32228 Great Deal on 08 EX-L w NAV in NE Pennsylvania
Dec 10, 2008 (11:56 am)
Approximately two months ago I purchased an 08 EX-L w/NAV in Polished Metal Metalic for $24,900 + TTL. The price included mud guards, full tank of gas, and a $25 gift certificate to the dealership's shameless accessory shop. I also received 1.9% financing from HFS for 36 months. I received this deal from Motorworld Honda in Wilkes-Barre, which is approximately 110 miles from me (I am from Philly). The closest price from a Philly based dealer was $25,300 from Sloane Honda in NE Philadelphia.

Sorry if my last post was confusing.
Sale price - 26,300 OTD
Tax - NC rate is 3%, but that was included in the 26,300
Doc fee - $0
Reg/Title/Tag Fee - $0
I only worked with OTD pricing, rather than start at a base number and then add taxes and fees. Much easier this way.
I got 3.9% financing.
As far as the wood trim goes, it does come on the front doors, but I also had them add the trim to the inside of the steering wheel instead of that grey plastic, which is considered an accessory. That is all the wood trim that Honda offers. That was also included in the sale price. The sales manager has someone who installs additional wood trim that is an exact match to the factory trim. I got that at cost and free install. It looks really nice with the add'l wood trim.
