Make your best price below dealers invoice. number 1 concern!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your OTD prices consist of Doc fees. dmv and state taxes. you should try to negotiate the doc fee's off or reduced.
Dont think its a good idea to fly and p/u not enough savings
Wait til end of Next month to buy you will get a better price, and every month after that you will notice pricing comming down on the Accord and all models
The longer you wait thru next year will assure bigger inventory on dealerships lots. Many dealers are inclined to make better deals.... They cant have those vehicles sitting for to long... Supply and Demand.
Apply what ive been saying you will save a few bucks.. Good Luck

#27851 of 32195 Accord LX in TX - Whats the Best DEAL
Dec 29, 2012 (10:36 am)
Have been talking and emailing to dealers in Dallas, Austin, Houston & San Antonio and the best price so far I got was from Kent Adams, Dallas. They are giving me at $22,800 OTD with window tint, wheel locks, splash guard, pinstripes and tunk tray.
Trying to get Austin/San Marcos/San Antonio dealers to match it... so far no one has come back on that Dont want to drive to Dallas...
Is this a decent deal for TX? Should I wait till Monday?
Has anyone got a better deal in TX, OTD?
#27852 of 32195 Leg Room in 2013 Accord LX
Dec 29, 2012 (10:49 am)
After test driving the new 2013 accord LX I realized their
is not a lot of DRIVER LEG ROOM. I am 6 feet tall and
realized their is more room in a Toyota Camry.
The Honda has about 41 inches and the Camry 46.
It would be interesting to hear from the other forum members.

One last thing I want to say before leaving this forum.
First, a million thanks to brian, who taught me so much (personally think you should make videos showing your buying~). I was thinking of paying MSRP before I saw his posts. I might have not hit a nice deal, but I really had fun playing games. But two most important things I learnt from this buying experience are:
1. You have to buy at the very end of the month. One day can make a big difference. Yesterday DCH Paramus Honda was only willing to offer 22800, but they are willing to match 22500 today.
2. You got to have the decisiveness to commit to a dealer that once he hits your price, you will buy at the moment, no hesitation. For college park's 21500, it's great with NJ tax, confirmed it with the internet manager, but I did not have anyone willing to take me there since it will take over a day. So I don't have the ability to make commitment right at the moment it appeared, and missed it. Some deals open only for a short while, since once dealers hit their quota, they won't bother selling you low anymore (So I doubt they are still willing to sell at that low). So once the deal appears, I guess you should make sure no tricks in it, make the one calling you write his offer on paper, and then grab and cling onto it.
In addition, I think it's also important to give dealers reasonable offers so they do not call you back telling you they can't do the business. For accord LX, I computed my target price as: roughly 1100 over invoice=19500, plus 790 dest, plus tax roughly 1400, plus 300 reg and doc and other things, and it's around 22000. And my deal is 500 above my target price.
Lastly, some dealers say they will beat any written quote by XXX dollars. But they eat their words when you show them your quote.
Hope everybody here learn from previous experience and get satisfying deals. Bye edmunds!

First off the 2013 Toyota Camry failed miserable in front crash test , Last week.. Nat/ hwy safety claims the front wheel and wheel well pushed into driverside cabin crushing the driver i would stay away from camry till they address this issue. Your a big guy you wont look good with one leg............ God Forbid.
Your numbers are wrong on interior sizes may i correct you.
Headroom Camry..38.8.............. Accord..39.1
Ft leg rm..............41.6..........................42.5
Ft hip rm..............54.5..........................55.6
The Honda Corp has hit a homerun with this model. My buddy has the loaded exl v6.. What he has been saying is alittle more road noise than he expected and ride quality. My thoughs on this is again for under 30k alot of car for the money, want a better ride and upgrade... The Audi A6 is your ride at about 54k out the door. IMHO.. best bang for the buck at that price...
#27855 of 32195 Searching for EX-L V6 Coupe w/Navi
Dec 29, 2012 (11:39 am)
I contacted through email several dealerships in the So Cal area looking for this vehicle. The best price I was quoted was $29471 and then at a closer dealership, $29667. These seem like pretty good prices. They both include destination but not $7.75 tax, tags and $80 doc fee. Unfortunately, none of the dealerships seem to have this car in stock in the color I prefer which is Modern Steel Metallic. I was initially looking at the white one, but am not enamored with the two tone interior. Looks like I won't be able to buy by the end of the year but will wait until I hear back from the dealerships as to who gets one in stock.

For 1000 dollars i will drive you down 400 miles to get that deal....LOL
People dont realize the leverage they have comes the last 2 days and last day of this month. just glad to pass on my wealth of knowledge over the years. If you are passive and laid back not a good negotiator . you still will receive the best price possible by applying some of my simply techniques....
Enjoy your new car my friend
Happy new year to you and your family I appreciate the posting

I few months ago I was looking at the Accord and the Camry. I had not decided until I sat in the passenger seat of the Camry. I am 6'-5" and I do not fit. With the power seat on the driver side, I am ok; however, the passenger seat does not have a height adjustment. I suggest you check this if applicable to you.
