It depends on how long you will keep the Optima? If U keep for only 2 or 3 years The Optima would be fine. Longer than that I'd go with the Honda. According to the Car mags, the 13 Accord is almost Acura Quality inside and out and everyone knows of Honda's stellar reputation for reliability.I had the same decision to make 1 month ago and I decided on the Accord over the Optima SX because I keep cars over 5 years. R U getting the EX-L V6?

I started by emailing 7 or 8 different dealerships in Maryland and asking them what is their lowest out the door price. Brown's was the cheapest by $1,000.00. I then emailed the two dealerships closest to my house, and asked them to beat the 22,500 otd price, and they did not.
In regards to financing, I got pre-approved for the 1.49% from Penfed and asked the dealership to beat it. They could not. I think the lowest was 2.5 or something like that (and I have a credit score in the upper 700's).

Thanks! You gave me the confidence to drive the 35 minutes to get to Brown's, and yes, the place was cake to deal with.
Sorry, if I knew they gave a referral, I would have asked your name.

I am planning to buy Accord Sedan EX-L with navigation. Can you please tell me if 29,000 includes the car price, destination fee, state tax, documentation and license fee? Where did you buy this? I am looking for the same car and looks like it will be around 30,000 including everything.
#27444 of 29567 29000 for otd price
Nov 03, 2012 (7:05 pm)
They took another 200 off (28800 for everything) since I was hesitant since the car in the color I wanted already had 76 miles but 29000 OTD was what they agreed to.
Keep in mind I live in VA where tax is 3% and I bought near the end of the month right before Sandy. Other dealers would not match.
Landmark Honda in Alexandria. Very easy to deal with.
Good luck. Great car.

No, that's not a good deal. I got a quote from Mckinney Salinas Honda in Gastonia, NC for $27800 OTD Sedan ex-L 4 cylinder

Both cars are good, although I'd probably wait a year on the Accord since it's the first model year. You'll probably get better deals on the Optima right now since it's been out for a while.
Kias have a 5-year warranty while Hondas have a 3-year warranty, just another thing to consider if you are concerned about that.

Is the a way to anchor the bottom of the cargo net with the tray installed?
Just thought i would confirm before taking your lead on purchasing the supplies from Amazon.

Just wanted to share my experience if it helps future consumers. Purchased my Grey on Grey
sedan on Saturday from Jason at Autowest Honda in Roseville,CA
MSRP was 30,800(30,795?) and dealer had installed the spoiler (retail 795 or 895?) I offerred 28,200 which is what edmunds reported invoice price minus the spoiler. They took it! I did pay the 795 destination charge, and the rest of the fees which were the same as most or less. I financed through AHM for 2.49% for 54 months.
The kicker was they purchsed my 2010 Tundra on trade-in. Carmax offerred 19,000. I paid 24K before tax and destination new in 2010 (great deals when the gas pedals were sticking) They gave me 22K and did not deduct anything for the four bald tires they inherited. Private party trade sale was 24,200.
I know my father still thinks he could of done better, but trying to offload a 8 mpg tundra didn't sound like an easy task.
Drove to work today for the first time and don't regret any of my decisions from the weekend.
All across the board at Autowest was super easy and no game playing.
Oh yeah, the dealer had installed the mud flaps, wheel locks, and trunk tray which also was included in my negotiated price.
