Are you doing with a 2013 Accord now? You do get more for your money. When are you going to buy?

Happy Holidays M6dude!!!
At the auto show in L.A. we had the opportunity to review
the mid-price sedans under the same roof. As you correctly
observed the Honda has more for the money.
The following are standard:
stereo anti theft
The other major change is the CVT auto transmission.
It seems this might be new technology. Lucky for me
their is a 5 year/60k warranty. Are you comfortable with
the new CVT.
The other impressive vehicle in is the Altima 2.5 S.
The seats are far superior in comfort compared to the Camry.
Actually, better than the top of the line redesigned Avalon.
The dilema is price, reliability and resale. My 2003 Camry has 100K+
miles and has been perfect..ok one wheel bearing repair.
Roseville just lowered their 2012 LE to $19K without PD.
Toyota of Orange has the 2012 LE no PD for $19.5K
Also all N. CA toyota dealers offer 1000$ rebate until 1.7.13
for gas Camrys. Maybe their will be a huge rebates soon. We want to
buy soon but waiting is not a problem.
Please share your suggestion on what direction I should go.
Also best dealers prices for Accords, Altimas, and Camrys.
Thanks again for all you help

Merry Xmas everyone.
I plan on signing a purchase agreement on Friday or Saturday. As a negotiating tool, I might use Honda Financing. Plenty of you in this forum have purchased using Honda Financing. I want to triple-check that there is no penalty if the loan is paid off early, ie with a better auto loan rate from another bank.
Thank you in advance.

Doc Fee: 349.00

And I got a $500 rebate for financing through Honda so total out the door price was:
Hope this helps! Oh and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everybody!!!

GREAT RESPONSE ABOUT LEASES!!!!
It always shocks me when persons lease a vehicle. The first
lesson should be WHAT IS THE PURCHASE PRICE!!!!! Then
inquire about residual and money rate.
I dont think they realize that acquisition and drop off fees
are incentives to purchase instead of leasing.
You seem informed about the car business. What dealership
has the best prices for Accords and Camrys in California?
Thanks again for the Leasing 101 lesson

Did you call one of the n.j. dealers i posted. Your deal is about 800 below dealers invoice... Remember your giving this dealer 300 dollars back by paying his doc fee's. I would call him back and tell dealer you will buy that moment.. To take off doc fee's or.. if not....... lower price to adjust sale price of vehicle. If they say no...... tell dealer thanks but that is what gets your deal done with them... hang up and let him wait a day. If dealer does not call back and its your best deal then make the deal with them.........
Note: This is how you Negotiate to get the Best Deal
1- Call 20 dealers and tell each dealer that joe honda will sell you your honda for 800 below invoice plus tax and tags nothing else out the door.
2- Tell each Dealer beat Joe honda price i buy from you right Now. you will have your best deal it 30 mins bet my life. Good luck let the forum know how you did. DONT WIMP OUT NOW.... CLOSED THE DEAL.. PLAY THE GAME
