I understand what you are saying. It is just enough difference to make a difference for me. LX - 39.1" headroom vs EX-L 37.4. That 1.5" makes all the difference between having a little space above my head and being right at the roof line. If the sunroof went "edge to edge" then it would be fine too since I could leave the shade open. This is just one of those things Honda does that drives folks like me crazy. I am still driving my 1996 Civic LX, headroom 39.7, for the same reason and my '89 Accord LX before that. And need I mention my '84 Prelude that had headroom too. Skipped next gen Civic and Accord, to ugly. I went to purchase new Civic SI for 2006 MY, no headroom and they put the handbrake at my knee. So, OK try again with new MY Accord coup and no headroom on EX +, go figure.

Got a lot of info from this forum. Just want to share my experience here to show my appreciation. Just bought a Accord 09 EX coupe for $22700 OTD. I am in the northern NJ. I paid cash and the price will be different if I want to get the 2.99 APR. Feels like that I might be able to get around $300 cheaper if do more bargains with a few more dealers. But I don't really have the extra time and energy. One lesson I learned is that after you think that you got a deal with the dealer over the phone, make sure that he/she send you an email with detailed price and APR if you are getting financing. The tricks I experienced if that so called "financial manager" deny the APR that sales promised me over the phone and if I want to get the good APR, I have to pay $1500 more. I have no proof of the promised APR over the phone. Since I want the car and have no extra time to go somewhere else, and I can also pay cash, I finally decided to get the car there even though I don't like that dealer at all. The other thing is give it more time for shopping a car. I got a quote today from an dealer which the price is about $400 or $500 better. Maybe that dealer has its own "tricks" waiting for me. Anyway, comparing more dealers and do more bargains if you have the time and energy. Good luck! By the way, I do like the car a lot.

I am planning to buy a new accord EX L V6 Coupe without navigation from Houston. Can anybody suggest any price quote or range that I should keep in mind while I negotiate with the dealers, and name of any specific dealer in Houston that offered a good price.
Kindly let me know as this is the first time I will be buying a car.

Sales people do not have to do anything with giving you an APR that is the finance managers job. it is true that most will tell you that you qualify for the good APR offer just to get you in but they do not decide on what interest rate to give you. i am sure that in the email you got in the fine print it must mention WAC (with approved credit) note this does not mean any credit score (this was noted in all my email quotes)
it is wise to look at your credit score before you go in to be aware of what apr you might qualify for and to ask for a loan from your bank. if the dealers interest is higher you know they are trying to take advantage. also to qualify for the best offers you will usually need credit scores above 700 so if you do not have this type of score you will not get them.
also if you are buying this month you can NO longer combine the marketing support ($1500) with any special interest rate. You could have done this last month i got both. so not to be in defense of the finance manager but he was right when he told you that. Look at the incentives for honda in edmunds and it will state that you cannot get combine special apr and marketing support.
also what was your sales price alone as well as your break down of TTL and any other options or fees. is this auto or manual

It is an auto. Tax rate in NJ is 7%. Base is $20738. Doc fee is $249. Tire fee $7.50 and Registration is $254. That is it.

Have been seeing the posts that the APR financing and the Casback offers cannot be combined this month. If so does anyone know any banks or credit unions giving a decent rate on Auto Loans.
Any help is appreciated. Planning to take the cashback and take the loan somewhere else.

Not sure of where your located, but National City has some very nice rates for new cars. You might be able to get a loan of as little as 4.22% for 60 or 72 months, as aways, these rates are based on your credit score.
