#27560 of 29567 Pricing for 2013 Honda Accord Sport CVT
Nov 24, 2012 (7:18 pm)
I went to a couple Honda dealerships around Boston, MA and the best offer I received for the 2013 Accord Sport CVT was, after taxes and fees, at 23,500 out the door.
Is this a good deal? I read some past posts in this forum but couldn't find much about others experience/pricing with the Sport. I was hoping for a 22k-23k out the door with the Sport, or is that asking for too much?
Does anyone know if there are any place better around the Boston area.

Yang, cant answer that question... GETTING THE BEST PRICE IS DETERMINED HOW GOOD A NEGOTIATOR YOU ARE.. you choose the vehicle that best suits you. The Altima vs the Accord. Altima handles better , better gas mileage, seat comfort,, Accord better Tech features and quality of car, better resale value.... You will get a better price on the Altima right now... check edmunds boards on Altima's they been selling for below invoice pricing.... seen as high as 1800 below invoice price... When you decide on the vehicle you want call 10 to 20 dealerships the last days of the month with invoice price on the Accord and 1000 below invoice or lower on the Altima.. Read prior post in your area on pricing in both message boards to get a idea on what your target price should be.. good luck............. Brian

Thanks for responding to my post! I am still in the middle of my decision, but it is a very hard one, but I thought with an higher chance I will go after the Accord. There is two more confusions. I tried your methods, and called a couple of dealers. I told them that I will also call other dealers. But they only ended up calling me back and trying to bait me in, or saying that they are not able to get the OTD number or they usually don't discuss it over the phone. What should I do in this situation? I also believe that if you have a target price, it should not be too far away from what the dealers are selling at. When you say that the dealers are making 1000 when selling at invoice price, what target price should I set for myself in the first place? Many thanks in advance~

Bad advice. You forgot to mention that there are often factory-to-dealer incentives. Sometimes these are published online, sometimes not. These can be regional, or even targeted at specific dealers. I always recommend asking as many dealers as you can what their lowest price is, and going from there.
I usually get my Hondas well under invoice price due to factory-to-dealer incentives...especially this time of year on "last years's" 2012 models.
#27565 of 29567 2012 Honda Accord invoice + premium or no premium
Nov 25, 2012 (12:36 pm)
I plan to purchase a 2013 Honda Accord.
I subscribed to the CarBargains service from the Center for the Study of Services. 800-475-7283
If you’d like more information about CarBargains, this is the web site: http://www.checkbook.org/auto/carbarg.cfm
Select the make, model, and year in the upper right hand corner
As part of this service, CarBargains obtained pricing information from five dealerships. Here is some of the information CarBargains provided:
Base price $20,579 $22,480
Vehicle Subtotal $20,579 $22,480
Destination Charge $790 $790
TOTAL PRICE $21,369 $23,270
As part of this service, one dealership indicated they would sell the car for $1,000 above invoice. Here is my question. Should I offer to pay the invoice ($20,579) + $1,000 or should I just offer to pay the $20,579? Why do I need to pay the $1,000 over the invoice?
Doesn’t the manufacturer provide a hold-back to the dealership, 1-3 % of the MSRP? If so, is that enough profit for the dealership?

Yang, what state do you live?. Read prior post in your area .. your target price is Dealers invoice on the make and model you want. Read my last few post on how to buy on the phone or online. Your not telling the internet managers the right things. you have to control the conversation. You have to be in talks with someone who has the power to give you there best price that moment..NOT THE SALESMAN WHO WORKS THE FLOOR. Tell every dealer you contact that for invoice price you buy right that moment. its yes or no. If they say no tell DEALERSHIP what is your bottom line price that is close to invoice. then tell him thanks and only call you back if he wants to make a deal at invoice. . move onto next dealer etc, etc,.. buying a car is a negotiation . Once you let a dealer give you his idea of a fair price your done.

Nov 25, 2012 (7:50 pm)
I went to this dealership to get the car based on the email i recevied from them, they did not honor the price. Avoid this dealership at all cost. Don"t waste your time
Really bad bad business practice. Giving you a quote online and not honoring it.

Rock Honda internet pricing for Sport trim : $21,650
