You read too much from the internet. True Car does not help you get a better deal, especially on brand new cars that there are currently waiting lists for. You cannot believe those prices anyways. Besides, the 2013's aren't even listed yet! TrueCar.com listed a fully loaded WRX STi at $38,000 give or take + TTL for my area, got internet quotes of $3-4K OVER that + TTL and if I didn't want it, they had 20 other people who would pay that price. Same will go for the 2013 Accords. It's supply and demand and none of you seem to get that the dealership has every right to charge you MSRP because you all pay MSRP at Macy's, Target, or any other store. If you THINK you can get $1000 OFF on a 2013 Accord, good luck. Employees of Honda can't even get that price right now!
You can wait all you want, but the slightly less popular 2012 CR-V took 9 months before dealerships were willing to discount it a few hundred dollars in my area. Yeah, good luck with the TrueCar.com quotes...they don't sell cars, they are just a tool some dealerships use to get customers in, and once they do find any and every reason to get you to pay more.
Here's a hint to all of you trying to get a deal on the 2013's...you can't negotiate on this car...and feel lucky if they knock off a few hundred bucks. Honda dealerships don't need to discount this car to sell them...the Honda dealership by my house had 10 in the first week of it's release, and they are down to their last one after just one weekend and they've all sold for MSRP and they've also kicked out more people who were dumb enough to ask for more than $100 off

price does not include Destination obviously, and what are you talkig about you don't know how good it is unless you know how much you're paying for TTL? TTL is SET IN STONE! you can't negotiate that because it's charged by the government. I'm sick and tired of hearing people bitching and moaning about how much they paid out the door...You take your sales price, add the tax rate of your area, and the typical DMV fees which are anywhere from 400-$600 depending on the car and you have your OTD price..that's a dumb ass comment...EVERYONE on this forum will be buying a different TTL and whether you like it or not you won't be able to negotiate that down.

Absolute nonsense. This is an Accord not some exclusive Aston Martin. Selling prices will be at or just above invoice before the year is over.

What you say is absolutely wrong, Honda compete with Toyota, Ford and Nissan. If dealers are not willing to sell at invoice or even lower, people will buy from their competitors. The all new Altima can be bought at 3k below the MSRP. You also can get a huge discount on camrys. accord is not like the CR-V. Before the end of the year, dealers will take 2500 or more off the msrp

benjaminh never said they were negotiable. We need to know the amount paid before TTL to know how good a deal it is. TTL varies from 0 percent to like 10 percent across the nation. As for DMV fees mine are like 30 bucks so your estimate is way off. Once again all these things vary across the nation.
TTL is non-negotiable so either provide a breakout so we can back those charges out or provide the price with all fees excluding TTL for an accurate comparison.
Yes, Accords will be invoice or less by the holidays. It happened the last 2 generations, and there is even more competition this time around.

I have been offered a new 2012LX automatic for $18500 before TTL, is that a good deal.

"I have been offered a new 2012LX automatic for $18500 before TTL, is that a good deal."
I think that's more than $3500 off of list price. I'd say that's a very good deal, and about the lowest I've seen for that model. Good job. Go for it. Or at least that's my 2 cents.

It should be $17600 or so plus TTL. Total OTD price should not exceed $19500 (assuming 6.25% is sales tax in your area)

Yes,it includes everything(its the out the door price).
Tax is 3% and title/processing/others fee is$409.00.
Dealer is also extending the powertrain warranty to 7yrs/100k.

Okay, so by my calculation, your sale price (after removing $400 fee and 3% tax) is ~ $26,700, which is close to the invoice (according to Edmunds.com). Considering it is the 2013 model, and just came out, I think that is a very good price! Be aware of gimmicks, though. they might trick you into unnecessary gap coverages/insane financing rates.
