A reason prices were better at the end of the year,was meeting year end quota,and Honda had
500 cash on the hood if you financed through Honda. The 500 is gone for now. There may have been more don't know.

Great post. I also want the exact same car you bought. I emailed 10 dealerships and got various answers about availability and price. I haven't bought yet, but i am confident that it will be well below invoice. It has helped me that I'm, not in a hurry and it seems the inventory of EX's with manuals is starting to grow. There are now 7 within 50 miles of me. The dealers that have them are now ringing my phone like crazy. I know not everyone is in a situation where they can be patient, but it is by far your number one bargaining chip. I'll post when I make my deal in about a month.

Check Jim Coleman Honda - Salesman's name was Victor. If I lived closer, I proabably would have purchased from him. Should be able to get to $22,000 (based on 6% MD tax included) OTD.

Your model of Accord should not matter. Unless its a manual trans. There are not many. That brings in the Supply and Demand factor which always favors the dealers for pricing... Find the dealers closest to your home with lowest price and doc fee's and make the deal. My involvement here on Edmunds since 1997 has to be left as private as possible due to discrimination from dealerships to me, family and friends. I am not a liked person inside the car dealership circles. For my buying Practices. I'll keep you posted on anything i hear. Call Weymouth Honda talk with James. Tell them you will consider the 4 hr travel time to there dealership with a price scenario of 1k below dealers invoice with your added options at his dealer cost Installed on car. Let them know your buying jan 31 and will decide if it worth to make the trip up to Weymouth M.A.. I have always found getting the best price from High volume dealerships out of state and working closer to your home works great. There are no Incentives/ rebates from Honda this month so far.
My choice of Accord is

Make the same deal with Friendly Honda in Poughkeepsie N.Y.
make sure you tell Friendly he has to match or beat Weymouth honda price to be consider for your business and travel time..
any of your so called options that Weymouth did not discount make Friendly beat his pricing on options to close your deal.
Now target your long Island dealers.. High Volume first.
chart all doc fee's of every dealer and know which ones will remove, discount, or Put onto your car sale price to lower the numbers... If you want to go slumming Start targeting all the next level dealerships that ive been listing. This is how you should always buy. Buying this way gives you the best leverage and pricing in the car buying game. Start planting the seed the last days of this month or any month.
One other note, if you could hold out 1 more month to purchase.. On Presidents weekend dealers tend to sell more cars and discount due to there Manufactor to dealer incentives you might save as much as 500 more dollars than at Jan end..

I agree regarding $500 cash through Honda Finance that expired on Dec 31. One of the rep told me about this a couple of days ago to me too.

It is negotiable, but not completely negotiable. It will depend on your credit score. I can just tell you what they did in my situation.
I'd secured 1.99, and the finance guy asked what I got. I told him below 2%, but wasn't specific.
Finance guy: "Ok, so if I get you 1.89, would that be worth it?"
FG: "What about 1.5?"
Me: "Yeah that'd probably be worth it."
He ran my credit, and I could see in his system that the lowest they'd give me was 1.94, which amounted to almost nothing. So I knew that for me, without having financed anything before, they wouldn't go lower.
If you're planning to negotiate, play your cards right and let them know that you've secured financing at a good rate. If you haven't, then creatively phrase it however you want without lying. I have heard many stories of customers getting taken by super high interest rates, so be skeptical.

Thanks for the information.
Initially, one dealer offered me 4.99%. Later, I got 3.99% and then 3.49% and finally 2.49% from different dealers. I will try for 1.99%. The dealer who offered 2.49% could offer 1.99%.
I am looking at LX. The invoice is $21,369. I am trying to get at least 750 below invoice (with no doc fee) plus TTL. Hopefully, I will find one by Jan 31.

At Pohanka Honda the salesperson I worked with was Matt P. (Internet Sales). Pohanka had the exact car I wanted sitting on their lot (2013 Accord EX-L V6, Black/Black).
If the Pohanka dealership hadn't been receptive to my offer, I also had a written quote from a Honda dealership in PA that was agreeable to matching the Weymouth price (Ray Price Honda, East Stroudsburg PA, Justin W. Internet sales). Recommend you read the October posts from "carcam123" who worked with Weymouth and ended up purchasing from Ray Price Honda.
The V6 with six speed is a wonderful car to drive. I now have almost 5K miles on my car and have enjoyed every moment behind the wheel. It's a great daily driver. Good luck with the shopping.
