Honda Accord, Coupe, Sedan
Jul 15, 2012 (7:09 am)
I am in the market for a 2012 Honda Accord LX auto. Per CR the price to start negotiating is $20,300. Here is what I saw at a couple of dealerships in town
1>Lute Riley Honda, Richardson $21000 no haggle fixed price - includes $700 worth accessories.
Cargo Tray $149 Splash Guard $155 Tint $165 Door Guard $145 Wheel Locks $75
2>Bankston Honda, Lewisville $19767 drive out. Accessories do not include cargo tray & mud guard.
3>McKinney Honda $20986 drive out offer on emai. Went there and spoke he came to me with drive out of $21880 i.e. MSRP +$3K odd in accessories - 6K
Stripe $495 Mud Guard $495 Tint $495 Trunk Tray $395 Nitrogen Upgrade $195 Door Guard $295 Fener Wheel Trim $295 Body Side Molding $495Cargo Hook $295 ( Can you believe these prices?)
4> Rust Wallis Honda$20996 with 3 accessories cargo tray, mud guard, door guard
5> JIm McNatt - They gave me a super low quote of $18497 +TTL. They wanted me to come out to the dealership since they are running unadvertised special discounts this weekend.
In any case I see these advantages a) its still middle of the month b) 2013 model is due in a couple of months c) financing is already arranged d) I now have about 5 dealer contacts whom I have met and can work with face to face. Worst case I end up paying $21K.
My plan is to wait till end of the month and then start working these guys one by one to see who can meet my price. Any comments/suggestions?
#26940 of 32215 2012 Accord LX (Florida)
Jul 15, 2012 (9:33 am)
I am interested in buying a 2012 Accord LX in Florida. I received some quotes but they were around 1500~2500 higher than any of the quotes Iíve seen other people receive on this forum. I was wondering if anyone knows any dealers or salesman in Georgia or Florida that might be a little more flexible. (I am also open to an EX model if it would be a better value for the money)
Thanks in advance!

Does that price include all the fees? I know sometime they offer you a great price but rape you with all the liscense and doc and dealer "made up" fees. At that price I may reconsider an SE for an EX-L

I'm encountering a similar situation over here on the other side of DFW, in the Tarrant County area. I received a few quotes on an Accord EX Sedan that were initially quite low but then the final sales price increased as the additional add-on's - at inflated prices - were added to the base price.
Lowest quote I've found so far for an EX was about ~ 23.5 K OTD. This OTD included delivery, taxes, and document fees.
One thing I've noticed is that the supply of 2012 Accords on dealer lots are beginning to dwindle.

I also got a quote from sussman honda on a 2012 ex-l 23,489 but they would not give me an OTD price, plus with the quote they sent other used car deals, seems strange they would offer a USED 2010 EX-L for 23,883, 500 more than brand new. if it seems too good to be true..........

Best I could do prior to this quote was $24,000 including destination but without license and doc. fees. I feel this price is very fair. I was not financing. However, I was offered the 0.9% rate in case I wanted to finance.
$399 for remote starter
$156 for extra keys (2)
$182.95 Registration, title, transfer
I was offered the EX at $21,255(includes destination).

I did even more checking , here in south jersey at turnersville honda I got a price of 23836 with an otd price of 26707, but it included a honda protection package that I did not ask for. The best internet price I got so far is at Piazza honda in phila at 23037 . I'm trying to get them to E mail the extra charges, I refuse to give them my phone number for obvious reasons

I would contact dealerships in the DC area, Criswell, Orismann. Go throught the internet route if you are looking for an SE. You'll save on the document fee's and get an all around better deal. They'll pay the taxes for you, all you have to do is show up, drive the car and make sure you like it, sign a few documents and leave. You should be able to buy an SE for !9,500 including destination and doc fee's. Good luck! It is a great car, my SE is awesome. Now getting about 38 MPG on the highway.
