#27448 of 32167 2013 Accord Sedan EX-L W/Nav

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.

The dealer we purchased was from Rock Honda, their quote was the lowest we can get.

That's a pretty good price...congrats! How do you like the CVT transmission? I test drove the Sport CVT on Friday and I didn't care for the CVT transmission.

Thanks a lot for your post. Inspired by your post, I contacted Brandy today. Even though I'm located in NJ, I'm thinking, it may be worth driving all the way. None of the dealers around me are coming close to that. Can I possibly have your name to refer to Brandy? I think, you really deserve this. Are there any other things to watch out for according to you? Thank you again.

Thank you. You can tell her Josh P sent you.
If you are going to make the trip, I would have her email you the quote. Print it out and bring it with you. I had no problems at all. Good luck.

I live in Charlottesville VA and am interested in a 2013 Honda Accord VA EX-L wNAV (white with beige interior). Our purchase will be a cash deal. I would like to know best OTD price recently paid for this vehicle and dealership purchased from. We are willing to travel 100 miles.
Second question: Should we consider the Touring model for the extras?
Thanks in advance!!

Yes, the hook to anchor it is slightly below the top edge of the tray, but it is no problem IMO. The cargo net is very difficult to install only because of the rivets (4) that need to be installed. I ended up going to a local Honda dealer (not where I bought it) and found a super kind mechanic who tracked down the right rivet gun to do it. This was after asking over ten in that shop for help with it. Without his help the install would have been a fail. If I had known how important the rivet gun tool is for the install I would not have attempted it. An install of this caliber is definitely not for the typical DIY dude.

#27457 of 32167 2013 Honda Accord I4 EX-L 4 Door Purchase
Nov 07, 2012 (2:08 pm)
Hope this helps someone looking to buy a Honda in and around CT. This is how I paid $159 over invoice on a 2013 Honda Accord EX-L four door sedan four cylinder. On Saturday evening I contacted three dealers through TruCar, one through Costco Auto program, and three through their websites. The TruCar dealers were 55, 85 and 92 miles from my home and the Costco dealer was 25 miles away. Sunday I made a spreadsheet based on Edmundís numbers. The spreadsheet gave me the invoice cost of the car, destination fee, and the per cent makeup from 1% to 7%. One TruCar dealer contacted me on Sunday and gave me a quote after I asked for it. Monday morning, five dealers contacted me and gave me quotes after I asked for them. The most aggressive quote came from a dealer, Executive Honda, Wallingford, CT, nine miles from my home. The quote was about $800 over invoice. That same afternoon I went to Executive and met the internet contact who then proceeded to flip me to a salesman. The salesman gave me the test drive and we then commenced the negotiations. Two hours later I left the dealership with these numbers: 2013 Honda EX-L four door 4 cylinder sedan $26,658.31 and a dealer conveyance fee of $399. The remainder of the costs were state sales tax and state documentation fees. The moral of the story in my opinion is that the internet quote can get you a good price but that old fashion negotiation and time will get you a better deal. Second moral use TMV and TruCar target price as a guide. Picked up the car today without a glitch except for the roaring Noríeaster outside.
