The offer you got is more than $1000 below invoice!
I posted a reply earlier on the best price I got amongst several honda dealerships in Central Indiana for a 2013 accord EX-L V6 no navigation, but with options. It was a year-end deal for $28,000 for car, plus $345 for extras (installed splash guards, Body side molding, all season mats, Trunk Tray) and $151.25 document fee; and get a $400 Visa gift card in return.
I didn't take this offer because at the time (Jan 2nd), I wanted to trade-in my 1996 Camry LE to offset the OTD price. Dealer only gave me $1000 trade-in allowance, which is way below KBB price and below the price that I wanted. Since then, the dealer had increased the price to $28,000 for the car, $597.22 for the options, and no more gift card.
So, I am still in the search for a best deal for the car.
Could you provide the name of dealership in Cincinnati Ohio that offers you this price? ($27,200 for car and splash guards & wheel lock). Could you also provide the TTL that they quoted you? As Brian posted in this forum, the dealer use document fee, registration fee, and other fees as part of the OTD price to increase their profit.

End of Dec was a great time to buy. I would shoot for Jan 31,, Same rules apply. Email dealers the last day with meet my price i buy toady. This forum is great because you could see what dealers in your area are giving better pricing.... these dealerships are probably the ones you will make your best deal with on the last day.. Sale price of car and doc fee's are the most important info. Your taxes are at your states rate.. Dont be to concern with otd numbers.

those guys are playing games with you. best option, get the pre-approval at your local credit union or your bank, bring it to the dealership, if they can beat your rate then go for it, if not finance through your bank. good luck
#27976 of 32195 Accord Vs. Altima Vs. Camry
Jan 10, 2013 (5:04 pm)
Thank you for your experience and knowledge that has helped
everyone learn more about buying a car.
Finally, we found Hanlees Toyota (SAC CA) fleet dept. manager Dave to
sell us a 2012 Camry LE for 19,000$ plus fees. No PD. This is the net
cost after the 1,000$ rebate from Northern California. This rebate
is not available in Southern CA.
The bad news is I rented the 2012 Camry on a trip and was disapointed.
It had a lot of noise, did not handle that well, and the seats were
very uncomfortable. Their are other factors too.
A priority is the seat comfort. The new 2013 Altima has very comfortable
seats. Also, more leg room than the Camry and Accord.
The 2013 Accord has enough leg room, but the foot rest protrudes
much higher than the Altima and Camry. The Altima designers also
used the previous Camry rear end style that I do not like.
After knowing these priorities could you make a case for the Altima?
Your input is greatly appreciated. Also, the Altima has standard
36mo./36k roadside service
PD seat standard
What is the lowest prices in California for Honda Accords?
Thanks again for your participation in the forum.

I hear what your saying. I'm 6'1 and 240. My number one concern is seat and size comfort. I think in my opinion the Accord is pound for pound better overall than the Altima.
The Accords CVT auto is said to be better than altima.. The New altima reviews all say it handles much better than Accord ,Camry, malibu, Passat. Gas mpg are close, tech features close. that being said only your resale value will be better if you buy the Accord. Better pricing is avail on the Altima.
Bottom line ...............Both cars are a nice buy. The Camry Failed on the front safety crash. I would not put my familys lives in danger no matter what the saving are til problem is corrected...
Glad i helped you

Well said Brian:
Here is the other part of the equation.
Edmunds sent me a 750.00$ Visa card offer if i buy the 2013 Altima
before Feb. 2, 2013. Still a little skeptical about the Visa Card. Also, their is a 500$ rebate that CAN be combined with the 750$. It probably
has a 24 hr. use it or lose it clause. My priority was also the resale difference
between Honda vs. Nissan.
What is the difference in price between the 2013 Accord LX and the
2013 Altima S?
Is their a price point on the 2 vehicles you would be a buyer, and what
dealerships in So. or No. CA would you recommend?
