They didn't mention that because I didn't ask. Unfortunately, the person, whom we tried to buy a car, said 20K really exceed his budget and he's going to work with the Civic 2013.
However, I really like the new Accord. LX is very good and in black ext. and in with black int. it fells and looks luxurious. And what I don't really like in LX is the plastic steering wheel. If I bought an Accord, I'd go with the Sport. It's a superb car and costs not much.

Thank you the reply
The DL contains two pieces of information that could be used for identity theft: Date of birth, driver's license #. Neither are on my personal check
you may not realize it, but because of changes in State and Federal legislation, without a date of birth, it is more difficult for a crook to rip you off.

Dec 30, 2012 (7:44 pm)
I would like to know if I got a good deal on my car. Here is what I paid for my black 2013 Accord Ex-L V6 w/out Navi:
Total price of unit: $27,418.76
Customer Service Fee: $599
Sales Tax (7%): $1,964.24
Total Out-the-door price: $30,000
This price included the following:
Cargo (trunk) tray
2 Years free maintenance (oil changes and tire rotations)
Because I didn't really like the look of the moon roof visor and the dealership was too far from me to go for maintenance, I substituted a deck spoiler for the two.
Did I get a good deal on this car? While shopping around, I showed a number of dealerships the offer (3 passed, 2 matched, and one beat it by $200 although without all of the aforementioned accessories and add-ons).

You recieved a good deal.. What is a customer svc fee for $599. Your deal was about $275 below dealers invoice and he threw in your accessories cause they were on that vehicle. The deck lid was a nice touch... What state and what was the name of the dealership. your post should include this info to help others. Enjoy your new Accord I plan to put the Rear Deck lid on my Accord.. Really makes the car look elegant.

The state is GA.
Honda Mall of GA, Carey Paul Honda, and Nalley Honda were the ones who offered $30,000 OTD with similar packages (I feel a little weird saying who actually sold it to me). Team Honda also has a price-match guarantee but would not send me numbers.
I chose to buy from the dealership that had the color I wanted.

Interesting..... and, I understand your concerns...
But, I don't think you'll be able to make a $20K cash transaction without proving who you are (and, identification is a pretty big part of that)..
You don't have to let them copy your DL, but they don't have to sell you a car, either..

Vandergriff Honda, Arlington, Texas
TTL 29,553 Out the Door
Includes: splash guards, wheel locks, trunk tray, window tint, pin striping
Cash sale. Decided to decline the MPP Execu-care extended warranty.
Considering Hondacare from Hyannis Honda.
Honda of Burleson, Texas, offered essentially the same deal but did not have the car in stock in my color. I would have bought from them because they offer lifetime powertrain warranty at no extra cost.
I made a list of dealers and called them one after the other, told them I want to buy this car today for this price. This is what will do the deal today. Do you have the car in the color I want, and will you meet my price. If not, here's my number, call me when you can. I didn't pit one dealer against another. Simply kept going till they met my price. OK, they slipped in the doc fees (and perhaps some money in fees) but I declined to pay for any of the options.
They wanted me to take out a loan so they could get $500 incentive from Honda but I declined as I did not want the hassle. They didn't offer the $500 to ME.
Maybe a better negotiator could have gotten a better deal, but without this forum, I would have paid much more and spent a LOT more time.

Purchased this today from Weir Canyon Honda in So Cal. Negotiated price (all done by email and phone before going to dealer) was $29734 including destination. Sales tax 7.75%, doc fee $80. It was their only vehicle like this and other dealers in the area did not have any in stock. Color is orchid white pearl which is what I wanted anyway. I might have been able to pay a few hundred less but nobody had the car on the lot.
Finance guy tried to get me to buy lots of stuff I don't want like paint protection (don't want, I'm a hobbyist detailer). Tried to sell me extended warranty for some outrageous amount. I pulled out a quote from Curry Honda for 7 years, 80,000 miles for $880 and he met the price. I had an extended warranty on my 2006 Acura TSX and although I never used it I liked knowing I had it. Then went to the parts place and showed some online prices for trunk tray, floor mats and wheel locks and they met those prices too. All in all, fairly painless experience. Loving the car!
