I think you can do better at least $500 more. Truecar potential saving on this car is $1200 and Truecar is not the greatest price you can get. the MO dealer I talked about in my last post is now listing the car at 21300. Maybe the other price 20470 was for only one car. it was removed. I think in just two week you can get this car for less than 21000 easily since Honda wants to sell too many accords.

How much should i pay for Honda Care - 6 years 100000 miles warranty coverage for Honda Accord EX 2013 and should i purchase gap insurance?

Look at the warranty page asap! There's a place called Saccucci (sp???) Honda that sells these plans at a huge discount. Email them and get a quote. It's probably about $1000 for the plan you're describing. But for probably $1200 you could get an 8 year 120k mile plan with 0 deductible.
If you show that quote to your dealer they will whine and moan and say they can't do it. Just keep saying you'll buy it at the other place and they'll probably cave. But if they don't cave, just buy it at that other place!!
Don't know about gap. Never bought it or used it. I just use regular insurance.

Thanks, I got a quote from Curryhondacare.com for $ 1,120.00 8 years and 120k miles with 0 deductible.
Also I checked with a local dealer for the 2013 accord ex model, they were willing to sell for $ 26,400.00 OTD may be end of the month deal.... but walked away from making a deal.
#27166 of 29563 Pricing Expectations
Sep 30, 2012 (3:14 pm)
My wife and I just decided on which new car to get - a 2013 Honda Accord EX. What can I expect for pricing in the greater Baltimore area? I know its a very new, redesigned car. Edmunds seems to show -$500 below MSRP might be possible. One of the others shows -$1,500 below MSRP. We will be adding on a few cosmetic things - should we be paying "full price" for them (and, I'm assuming I should mention those things in the emails I send to dealers)?
If you look at the messages I posted back in 2007, I successfully got a very good deal on my Honda Civic with the help and advice of people on these forums... but I was also buying a very "plain" car that happened to be stuck between 2 great vehicles (the Fit and the Accord), so dealers were trying to get them out the door. I have a feeling my experience for a fresh Accord may be different.

I am looking for the price people paid or the quoted price for 2013 Accord EX-L CVT Automatic. I saw the actual price of this car is $28,785. On top of that we need to pay Sales Tax and other TTL prices. So If you can post the price that will give a good idea for my understanding before heading to dealers.

There are sites like this that can often help you cut $1000 off of the price of even an all new model getting rave reviews, like the 2013 Accord:
Honda dealers want to sell a lot of Accords. And yes they'd like to sell them at msrp. But if you won't buy them at that price, I think they'd also be happy to sell you one at $1000 off list (or maybe even more) and move the metal out the door. It's a great car, but Honda wants to sell at least 350,000 of them, and is ramping up its huge factory in Ohio to do that.
In other words, with a bit of patience and politely but firmly sticking to your price, you should do pretty well.
But things like Truecar just do most of the negotiation for you. That's what I'm planning to do when I buy one of these in a few months...
Good luck! Let us know what happens.

Glad you got a good price on the 8 year 120k 0 plan from Honda. That's the best one! And for c. $1120 I think it's probably worth it for an all new car like this, even one with Honda's top quality.
Your price for the EX sounds pretty good for OTD. Why didn't you go for it? And what was the real price before TTL??

I am seeing a lot of mixed reviews about TrueCar. Does anyone else have any information on that company? Until I can get some credible information about them, I will speak with the dealer directly.
