FX.................. you are dead on with pricing...Time is on your side.. Consumer Reports is know saying the 2013 Camry is back on top as the best car in class. I think the Toyota corp. is in bed with consumer reports. Waiting to see how they rate the new Accord..... The Nissan Altima did not get a great write up this month in the consumers Report issue . I was surprised. the Altima's are selling as much as 1800 below invoice. You know Toyota does not sell like The Honda people with there pricing. I would say by Feb or March 2013 Honda will have had there run with gouging there prices and be in a numbers fight with Toyota, Nissan and Kia. If your a good Negotiator by December you could get well below invoice price. There are post now showing up to 300 below invoice. just have to remember if your not persisted those doc fee's of 300 bring you back to invoice . just say no its a deal breaker OR ADD THAT 300 DOC FEE TO YOUR BELOW INVOICE PRICE. time is on your side if you can wait to purchase.

That sounds like a really good internet quote for including destination fee. Are you sure the 28,631 includes the destination fee? and this is a 2013 Accord EXL V6?
If this is all true let me know the dealership name because I would like to send them my bottom line price quote. I have searched around the DC and Hampton roads area for the 2013 Accord EXL V6 and the best I have received so far was $30,030.00 to include a destination fee of 790.00. Then you would have to add on any options, 3%VA sales tax, processing fee, and tags. Processing fees here in Chesapeak are avertised at $599 but I think that can be negotiated a little.

Ceejay, sorry I mis spoke from the last reply to you. The price quote was for a 2013 Accord EXL V6 W/NAV not a 2013 Accord EXL V6. The best quote I have received so far is $30,030.00 to include destination fee. This was from one dealer in the DC and Hampton roads area. That is why I questioned your internet qoute for the EXL V6. Ithout your quote included a NAV unit in the car.
#27528 of 29559 Is this a good quote?
Nov 17, 2012 (10:11 pm)
Was quoted 26888 OTD for an EX, is this good? Sales also told me they installed a protection package on the car already which worth about 999. He said all Honda dealers pre install this on all new cars. This was at Southbay Honda in Milpitas, CA. Please advise.
#27529 of 29559 Leasing 13 Accord Sedan with Nav
Nov 18, 2012 (8:10 am)
Am looking to lease 13 Accord in Chicago. What does Residual Value of .00155 mean?
Does a 4 or a 6 have better residual value?
Want to lease for 24 or 36 months, and can put down downpayment.
What else do I need to understand to make a decision?
Thx for any input.

Juan, let me try and help you understand leasing. Same rule applies with buying or leasing. Always work your lowest price for said vehicle. Your money factor, and residual value is what the car is worth for that time frame of 3 or 4 years , and what the value of said vehicle will be after lease period. Go to Edmunds leasing forum for Accord and ask the Car-man for the numbers on your make, model, lease period , and mileage you want. This is the formula for leasing. I dont like to lease but thses rules set the price. Once you have your leasing numbers make sure the dealership you buy works those same numbers for your monthly price......

low end models (LX, Sport) will have much better residuals than the 6. Reason is because the V6's do not sell nearly as much

Good luck with getting "below" invoice. They are not even letting employees buy the new Accords for under invoice. And Camry's alleged "unstoppable" sales are tanking. I stopped by the Toyota dealership in my town and their sales manager was griping about how ever since the 13 Accords were announced their typical Camry sales numbers have dropped to less than 50% of usual sales volumes, and that Toyota Motors had to institute several thousands of dollars in cash incentives to "whore them out".
If you understand anything about how cars are sold you would know that not a single dealership anywhere will sell a newly re-designed vehicle for UNDER invoice without factory incentives or without bending you over backwards in the back end.
You can wait your 3 months, and then you will continue to wait because as the 2012 CR-V's are any indication, they just NOW started discounting them anywhere close to invoice almost a full year after it was released.
Please, save yourself the embarrassment, go to Truecar.com, go see the pricing of what they are selling for in your market, then slap yourself for even thinking you can get $500 under invoice, including destination. BTW, the three Honda Dealerships within 10 miles of my house have no problems selling them at MSRP...or $500 off sticker...you might want to wait until the 2014's come out to receive a significant discount.
