Ram: It's a little complicated. If I found a dealer who would trade even up on an 09 Accord EX V-6 L Sdn W/Navigation, for my TL, I would have no sales tax involve. I received a price from a dealer, (through the internet) of $26,366 + destination (Apprx. $670.00 which totals $27,036). I've got a few extras on the TL like pin stripe, wheel locks, matching color door edge guards, matching color mud guards, and trunk protector. I'd ask the Honda dealer to split the extras on cost. Sales tax on the price of $27,306 is $1893.00, for an total of $29,199. The cost of transfer tags etc is minimal which is no problem for me. If I sold it privately I'd have to at least get a firm price of $29,000. The sales tax is the big bone, and the reason why I stated that a dealer could make a quick $3,000+ for the even up trade of an 09 Accord.
On VEHIX, the TL gives a trade in price of $27,200, with a dealer average retail price of $30,700. It's a great looling car, red in color which you don't see many of that color on the highway, and has tan interior. I truly love the car, for it's sporty look, and terriffic handling. I've own four Honda's since 1994, and presently own an 06 Accord EX V-6. I've heard some people say that a TL is a "little" up grade from an Accord. They are mistaken, for the TL is truly an up scale vehicle. However, my wife, because of her physical problem has brought me to this point. It has a 43 month bumper to bumper warranty, garage kept, and the odometer is 3100 miles.

Stripe, you originally stated the Accord has an up/down passenger seat that will help your wife. The passenger seat DOES NOT adjust for height, it's only 4-way power. The driver's seat is 8-way power and adjusts up and down.

I'm not sure how you can get 27.2K on a used TL w/ Nav. People could get this car new for 30K + TTL around Dec.

Good: Here is where I got my information. www.VEHX.Com
The car is show room new with what I consider a great color. My only question was how to find a Honda dealer that would give me the even up trade. Also, I was told that the passenger seat on the EX L Sdn V6 w/navigation has the up and down mode.

Good, the $27,200, is what a dealer would give on a trade. The $30,700, is what the dealer would ask when selling.

That's good if you can get it. I'm just thinking it's going to be hard to get that much considering that people can get this car new for 30K.
BTW, I have a G35x '08 w/ 10K miles (non-smoking, single driver), and this website says the trade in value is $27,375. However, I think 25K is more realistic b/c people can get this car new for about 30K.

Posted information on car values is only a guide... what matters is what the dealer will actualy give you for your car. If you can do a straight up even trade for a New EXL V6 with Navi jump on it!
#22827 of 32231 2009 Honda Accord EX coupe (Northern CA)
Feb 15, 2009 (3:12 pm)
I purchased the 2009 Accord EX coupe for $22,850 out the door.
The initial quote from the dealership was $23,500 out the door. I couldn't get any neighboring dealerships to match that quote, so I went in and low-balled an offer of $21,500. Of course it was a no. They said the "best" they could do was $23,300, so I left.
A week later, I was in the dealership again and we offered/counter-offered some more until we reached $22,850. That was a number my budget could deal with, so I bought it at that price. I'm just wondering how my purchase price compares to others who bought the same car around this time.
Was $22,850 ultimately a good deal on the 2009 Accord EX coupe? Thanks.

Don't go by what you were "told", verify for yourself. The passenger seat does NOT go up/down. I wish it did.

Impossible to compare OTD prices across the USA, too many variables in state taxes and fees, post the breakdown from your invoice.
