Sep 06, 2009 (5:07 pm)
Picked up a 2009 Honda Accord EX V-6 That the dealer added aftermarket leather to and then the customer backed out
It was missing- power adjustment on passenger side - xm - home link a slightly less powerful stereo system - also single climate control ( is that really a big deal in a Honda?)
Black with Ivory interior
24,408 - Out the Door TTL Excluded - this includes 489 doc fee
Did a 36 month lease - 1999.00 cap reduction
Payment $320 ( no tax)
.01171 money factor
Hope that helps
PS - This is in Atlanta Area - Hennesy Honda - Woodstock GA

This was for the EX-L i4. I think an excellent price for the v6 (no-nav) would be around $24,400.00. + TTL

I am looking at a 2009 accord EX-L V6 and noticed that the VIN # was a little odd.
The vin # starts with 5KBCP. All other accords I have seen begin with 1HGCP.
Can anybody decode the first few caharacters of this Vin # for me 5KB?

.01171 Money Factor???
That is roughly a 28% interest rate. Are you sure about that?
#24221 of 32216 Don't forget to add destination charge.

FYI, on Edmund's site, they didn't include the dest charge on invoice initially, you have to click on the next page to get the invoice plus destination to get the total invoice.

my error - money factor was .000171
#24223 of 32216 Honda financing and dealer cash!
Sep 07, 2009 (6:49 pm)
rlblake1, don't worry about choosing between the 1500 factory cash or honda financing at 5.9%.
You can bypass that, I just got 6% honda financing and 1500 dealer cash on a 72 month note. I intend to pay like a 60 month note, but I got an extra tenth of a percent and the dealer cash!

Your deal sounds a lot better than what I was offered. I was at a dealership today in the Sacramento, CA area and was told there's little difference between the 2009 and 2010, so opting for the '09. As the 2010s arrive, there's probably better deals on the '09s. I checked out an Accord coupe, EX-L V6 with leather seats as standard, but no navigation. Quote out-the-door was 28,400, including $1,500 dealer incentive. A potential problem was the car comes from a dealership 50 miles or so away. Your O-T-D purchase is really great!

I was offered many poor deals also . Be assured there are very good deals out there for Accords.
Here is what worked for me - perhaps you will find it useful - most of this was learned from other postings to this group.
1) Determine exactly what you want - year, make model, interior and exterior color - based on desire, test drive, etc.
2) Determine price by consulting this forum - a great rule of thumb - is to take 83% of msrp (That is the type of deal that is available on 2009 Accords presently). This includes 1,500 from Honda (assuming you don't require their financing). This includes EVERYTHING except TTL.
3) With 1 and 2 complete, you are ready to deal on price alone; This puts you in a very strong bargaining position. Call several dealers and talk numbers with them. Be sure to talk only with the Internet Sale Dept. - not individual sale people. Tell them that you are serious in making a deal. Illustrate knowledge of deals available and tell them that you are ready to buy if you get the right price. Keep in mind that they will start out with an unimpressive number and will rarely give you their best price over the phone ( lots of people trolling for deals and many are not serious).
4) Once you get a good number within about $300-$500 of where you want to be - it is likely time to visit the dealership. Call ahead and meet with the internet sales person. Bring your check book and tell them you are ready to buy. Since the price you are offering is obtainable, they are not likely to let you leave the dealership without purchasing. Be sure to talk about this forum and in detail about deals that you have knowledge of - also mention what you were offered from other dealerships. Eg. Dealer X's opening offer was lower than that. This may also speed up negotiations.
Hopefully, you will get a very good deal. However, if not, you will likely leave the dealership with a very good number that you can use to shop around.
5) If necessary go to another dealer - book appointment first and tell them the deal you want and how close the other dealer was. They will understand that you can go back to the other dealer and will likely give you the deal since they can sell the car in 15 minutes.
A couple other tips..
* Not every dealer will give you the deal that you want. That is why I suggest calling first and talking numbers a little bit. You don't have to agree on a number over the phone however, this will allow you to rule out a dealer that will not budge ahead of time. You will have to gauge whether they find the numbers you are discussing are impossible or whether they just won't commit over the phone.
* Be sure to mention (in a nice way) that any deal would be contingent upon no extra hidden fees suddenly revealing themselves and the car being in new shape. Of course you will inspect the vehicle before finalizing the deal.
* Be respectful of the dealer's time.

Hi, I bought a Honda Accord EX yesterday in TX. I was looking for a EX with no leather and one with metallic grey color. There were lot of EX-L around, but I did not want leather and located one from about dealers. It had
Car: Honda Accord EX
Options (Pre installed) : Tint + Extended Paint Protection + Splash guards (MSRP $1260)
Price quoted : $24763 + TTL
Price Paid : $22200 + TTL (Inc doc fess (rip offs etc)
OTD : $24000 (TTL + Doc fees included)
Financed $19K at 4.9% for 60 months
Extended Warranty - $1680 for 7yr/100K (added to financing) - I know this is a rip-off and hence going to take it off.
Is this a reasonably god deal?
Compared to slydog2's post of 83%, I am 84%
