#27457 of 29567 2013 Honda Accord I4 EX-L 4 Door Purchase
Nov 07, 2012 (3:08 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.

Has anyone purchased the 2013 Accord EX sedan CVT in the tri-state area? Any dealer or pricing information would be very helpful. Called a few dealers myself and most are at around 27000 OTD on the car.

I live in Fredericksburg. Last weekend I purchased an Accord 2013 EX-L V6 no navi. Price paid was $27,794, plus $55 for wheel locks, $399 Processing fee plus VA sales tax and tags. Total out the door price was $29,101. There was no trade involved, just a new car purchase. Car dealership is in Stafford VA (Pohanka Honda). They treated me great. I followed the same process recently posted by carcam123. I researched the internet price on the Weymouth honda MA website and secured a firm quote for a car from the Weymouth dealership. Their quote to me addressed the paperwork process of assciated with an out of state purchase. As of last week the Weymouth Honda web site posted a price of $27,794 (includes Destination charge) plus a $239 processing fee for an Accord 2013 EX-L V6 no navi. I took a copy of the Weymouth e-mail quote to Pohanka Honda, told them I was ready to buy and told them the priced quoted to me from Weymouth Honda was price I was willing to pay. Pohanka agreed to the price contingent upon me paying Pohanka's $399 processing fee ($160 diference). I said yes and we quickly closed the deal. You can use the same process to purchase an Accord 2013 EX-L V6 w/nav. Based on another posting I secured approval for the 1.49% 60 month loan offered by PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) which the Honda dealership matched. This forum helped me significantly.

2013 Accord LX from Brown's Honda in Maryland. The price plus freight was $20,804.83, plus $20.00 electronic transfer fee, plus $198.00 processing charge, plus 6% tax ($1,224.17), plus MD registration fee of $253.00, which equals out the door for $22,500.00. (car came with trunk mat, floor mats and pinstripe and splash-guards).
I dealt with Brandy. You can tell her Josh P referred you.

I am currently in the market for a EX-L 4 door as well....is yours a CVT or V6 ? Also what was your out the door price...My fiance works for Honda and we are looking in the next month or so...but my fiance doesnt think we can get it much less than MSRP out the door(which is $28,875.00), but i beg to differ. Was the 26,658.31 out the door or before taxes and fees?

EX-L I4 four door sedan black on black for $26,658.31. Conveyance fee ($399), state taxes and state registration fees were added to the $26,658.31. Also, I forget to mention that they gave me two coupons for oil changes no strings attached. I would disagree with your finance that you can't get it for less than MSRP because all of the phone quotes (five) were less than MSRP.
