I typically email multiple internet managers and get their best price via email. But think about things you plan to purchase before you request the bids to get best price. Like if you really want an Accord LX, do you also want wheel locks or winter mats? Or perhaps you want to do some type of 3M film on the nose of the car to protect it from rocks off the highway? Anyway, whatever you want make sure each dealership you send an email to, that the car you want is the same - why, so you can get an apples to apples look at price. The other thing is, how much for dealer conveyence fee's, typically they can range from $100 to $499 bucks. This is a fee that is pure profit to the dealer. You can buy Honda's in the Wash DC area Criswell, Oursmann are two dealers that have very low prices. You can negotiate these fee's off the car. I would wait until Nov 30th to actually buy the car or even Dec 31. There is "holiday cash out there too. Criswell was selling 2013 LX for $21,225 plus destination and they were giving an extra $250 in bonus cash last time I received and email from them.
Have fun and hope you enjoy your new ride when you get it.

LOL. All u noobs are still wet behind the ears!!. Every car at every dealer is priced at 38-40 PERCENT over their real cost when you look at the MSRP. Do you really think car dealers can stay in business making 1 - 3 %.....LOL what a joke. Just look around yourself when at the dealership. See all the amenities......the expensive employees, inventory, building, advertising, tools.....just like LasVegas...........you are gonna pay for all that. A $20k MSRP costs the dealer $13k. The dealer invoice means NOTHING and is no more reliable than the MSRP......its just a piece of printed junk. Do you really think a dealer is gonna tell you what they paid for the car you just bot?.........LOL........wake up noobs.....they are not in business to make 3%!! I use to work for a Ford and Chevy dealer for 20 years........I am still laughing at all these prices on this blog..........LMFAO....

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.
I will post this message everyday so readers can be warned and avoid this dealership, I filed complaint with BBB nad FTC for unfair business practice act.

ROB V6, here is a tip for next time. when ever you get your best price online or by phone Tell dealer that you want him to fax over a Buyers Order with make, model, vin number, and all the specific's of the deal. you secure this deal with a credit card deposit til he finds or preps vehicle. Once you both sign that document its a legal document. By buying this way you will see if that dealership is honest and if he tries to sneak in any other fee' s.. Then you can confront him before you sign deal. I have been buying this way since the Internet came along. works 100 % every time. Your comments about Riverside honda.. Here are my thoughts.. make sure you call and email that dealerships general manager and tell him there practices suck and not only have you lodge complaints with bbb, etc you will let as many people as possible know on the Edmunds and other Toyota buying forums about there slimy ways.. Good job

CAPTAIN , iTS IDIOTS LIKE YOUR SELF WHO POST STUPID THINGS IN THESE FORUMS.
Can you imagine this guy was a salesman for 20 yrs.
Stay over in your Chevy and Ford forums and buy one of those crappy vehicles for 40% off sticker that nobody wants.
If you dont have something constructive to say to help a 1st time buyer in this forum please do not belittle or say things that are not necessary.
As far as your comments on pricing A 20k vehicle cost dealer 13k . Back up your words with facts otherwise keep your comments to yourself..

I think the lesson I learned was to do as much comparitive pricing as possible, preferably on the internet and phone. Once I had a decent price from one dealer, other dealers wanted to match or try to beat it. The new Hondas are great. My wife's 2007 Camry was totaled a month ago (not her fault) and this Honda is her replacement.
#27577 of 32177 Bought a 2013 EX-L 4cyl w/o Navi
Nov 26, 2012 (2:26 pm)
I set out to just browse for cars in Northern Virginia over the weekend, but ended up buying that same day. As I was negotiating with the dealer, I did some research on this forum so I thought I'd say "THANK YOU" to all previous posters and contribute myself.
2013 Honda Accord EX-L 4cyl w/o Navigation
Base Price - $24,898
Freight - $780
Appearance Pkg (mud guards, wheel locks, etc) - $0
Titling Tax, Dealer Tax, Registration - $89
Sales Tax - $782
License Fee - $66
Processing Fee - $385
Total OTD - $27,000
Not sure if this was a "great" deal or not, but I think it was at least "good"! I was not trading in, and even with an excellent credit score was only offered around a 3% financing rate so I opted not to finance through Honda. So far I'm happy with the purchase! Thanks again!

GREAT deal... Invoice price on a EXL 4 is =$ 25,609 w/o dest charge. you bought for $700 below dealers invoice price. Next time try to neg those high processing fee's in half. All processing fee's are added income for the dealers. Overall great price you should post the Dealerships name so others can decide if they want to email them.

I live in New Jersey. I plan to buy below invoice as I think I am more of a price buyer, so I think I will wait a bit longer till great deals start to happen. Thx for advice!
