#27221 of 29555 South California Honda Accord Sport
Oct 09, 2012 (3:12 pm)
I was almost in purchasing a 2012 Toyota Camry SE base for a good deal slightly less than 23K OTD.. But had second thought about the 2013 Honda Accord for its better standard specs.
I am located around orange county and looking for a 2013 Honda Accord Sport with auto trans.
The MSRP at 24980 and I am looking for around 3000~3500 off MSRP before tax and fees.
Anyone has current buying experience or know when will I be able to purchase at this price?
Compare to Camry SE I got offered about 3800~3900 off MSRP (24680), I understand the car is out for almost an year now. I can justify paying 1k~1.3k more for the Accord compare to the Camry.
If anyone could provide some info it would be great! I can wait a couple month thats no issue for me because I am planning to have a new car for 5~6 years so the decision is important.

Unless things have changed since I retired there is nowhere near a 3000-3500 markup on Accords so asking a dealer to lose money probably won't work.
In fact, as I understand it, the spread between invoice and MSRP has become less than ti was before
Waiting a couple of months won't change this.
I will say that it looks like Honda has a full blown home run on their hands with the 2013 Accords!!

I am not familiar with the Accord pricing but for Toyota Camry SE it is already possible to get 3800~4000 off MSRP price here is Socal. So definitely dealer is still making money even for under invoice price.
dinoman's post in last page said he got a 2900 off MSRP deal already so I was thinking 3000~3500 off MSRP is doable, but now its just a matter of supply and demand since the 2013 Accord just came out. Also, I understand that the Accord will always be a bit expensive than Camrys, so thats why I said i can justify 1k~1.3k more. Camry SE and Accord Sport are direct competition.
So if anyone here has purchased experience in Socal and the general idea pricing for the Accord would help a lot. Thanks you.

Has anyone finance a 2013 Accord through Honda Finance? If yes, please share APR rate with your fico score (average, good, excellent etc).

Yes, supply and demand will always determine pricing. You can pay a bit more and get the car you really want or you can "settle" for something less.
If a car is being discounted 2900.00 below MSRP there is a reason.
Also, don't believe all of the "prices paid" figures you see in forums like this. Some are for real and some.....well.....were a stretch to say the least.

Toyota of Orange and Miller Toyota of Anaheim will sell you the SE with msrp of 24645.00 at 22OTD, just be firm...they will give it to you.....or if you dont have time to haggle, wait for the Ad this Friday for 19995 but that is after 1000.00 college rebate, you will be looking at 20995 + ttl if yyou go with the add.....I suggest you go haggle. 1000.00 is still 1000.00, it will be a lot of back and forth and they will ask you where you get that price. tell them "if you cant give it then let me know immediately so I can try Power toyota Irvine, Irvin will have the add on Sunday only--FYI. Norm reeves Honda price for 2013 LX is 21119 and 22645 for the sport...this is from the internet department. Good luck

I'm in Berkeley and looking for a 4cvt exl. I've got a price from Consumer Reports of $27,179; I'm going to check out what I can get through Costco, but I'm wondering if I could get a better price haggling.
