Firstly, Truecar is a true ripoff! They represent dealers and the prices they show do not consider those dealerships thatsell vehicles below dealer invoice! Second, I would send emails to internet managers in the Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia area- Criswell, Oursman , Shockly, and others. I have seen pricing as low as 18,900 (before shipping and TTY). OTD pricing of under $21,000 for 2012 Honda Accord SE. These dealerships will do all the paperwork for you and pay the New York Taxes their.
I live in CT, bought my accord SEin Maryland (Oursman). I followed a bunch of posts that were in here and saved well over $2,000 from what I could have paid in CT.

The sales tax you pay will be the tax in the state where the car is registered, not the state where it is purchased

Need to get an EX-L V6 very soon. New to the Houston area and looking for a good dealer to work with.
Anyone have any ideas on the best dealer, also any ideas on target price would be very helpful as well.

I'd say $25,000 sounds like a pretty fair price.

Thanks for the info. That makes sense about Truecar, though it still seemed better than just aiming for invoice price.
This is probably a stupid question, but again, I have no experience with this kind of thing so any help is awesome, but what is the best strategy for targeting the price point and negotiating for it? I mean, it's got to be more ideal to have a number in mind that's realistically achievable and just charge for that, no? From my little experience, they try to act like 10 cents below MSRP is a steal, so I'd imagine pushing for something lower arbitrarily could get kind of tough.
Also, should I just call or go through online for the dealers out of state? IS one way particularly better than the other?
#27095 of 32167 2012 Accord LX Pricing
Sep 14, 2012 (5:34 pm)
Hello, I'm considering purchasing a 2012 Honda Accord LX and I've gotten a few dealership quotes online. They seem to hover around $19,000 (OTD price would be around 21000 I think). Since the launch date for the 2013 models is so close, is this a reasonable price to pay for an 2012 LX? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Not sure of your location, but I got an SE for 21,500 OTD (see details/breakdown one or two pages before). You should aim lower on the LX or just get the SE, 22K SE out the door should be able to get easy. Got mine at month end, mid week.
