#27731 of 32172 2013 Honda Accord EXL
Dec 20, 2012 (10:04 am)
I live in Texas. I went to a couple of dealerships with a mindset of buying 2013 Honda Accord EXL. The quotes that I have got earlier from various dealerships were 28,400 OTD (includes sales tax of 6.25% and dealership add ons such as window tint, wheel lock, splash guards, trunk liner). Finally, I was able to get down the price to 27,900. I am not sure if this looks like a better deal but after following the forum for long time, I think 27,500 seems to be a great bargain. Please let me know your opinions.

MAV, Read my earlier postings on how to buy by phone or online then call as many dealers on the last day of the month. You will hit your target price. Be firm.. If they wont meet your price before saying good-bye tell them your price is what gets your business on that day and move on.. Pit one dealer against the next. tell every dealer you could get your price 100 miles away if you have to. mention any dealer 200 miles away put the bug in every dealer thats closet to you.. Play the game. Tell each dealer doc fee's are a deal breaker. The last day in Dec is a great month to pull off a Monster Deal and a buyers dream with alot of car companies........ good luck .......Brian

Thank you for getting back to me. As I listed in my break down of price in my first email to you Net Cost on the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan Sport CVT is $22,444. So as you can see your offer of $21,000 even is not reasonable as that would result in a $1,444. The price I quoted you of $22,194 including Honda's Destination Charge is my best price and good for today's business only. I look forward to hearing back from you shortly with a time to come in today to wrap up this phenomenal deal. This is price from boch Honda and they say if I when with Honda financial they'll take another 500 off hope this will help u out

Any dealership that tells you this is the only day for this price.... Make sure you run out of that dealership. The only time you should ever hear that saying is ON THE LAST DAY OF ANY MONTH OR AT THE QUARTERS END..

Don't you mean lower the money factor and increase the residual? Lowering the residual would cause the monthly payments to go up.

Yeah the current MF of 0.00155 is pretty bad. I am looking at 14 different cars to replace my Sonata and the Accord's MF is only exceeded by the new Lexus ES 350 (0.0017). The residual isn't bad, but not on par with Lexus or BMW for a 36 month lease.

Thanks Brian for your response. I am not in a hurry to buy a new one right away and plan to wait for some more time (as you said end of the month or next month). I am surprised that the dealers weren't ready for $27,500 since I saw couple of postings for $27,300 from people where the state taxes were higher than in Texas. The dealers were saying they will be losing more than $1000 for selling to me even at 27,900
