Just let me go off topic for one min about that last poster...Gotta love people who joined this edmunds forums about 6 mins ago and post something like that .
I cant answer your question i have been trying to uncover, disclose, or find out exactly how much each dealership receives from there Manufactor for selling that vehicle. I'm not talking about the dealer hold back. i Once heard this Old-timer years ago Say...You take the difference from M.S.R.P. and the Invoice price of the car... Then Times it by 3% then divide that number and thats the additional monies the dealer receives on top of his Hold back. So I do believe there is truth to what is the Real bottom line.. And real price the dealer is paying.. definitely not what we know. This to me is like the 1947 Roswell crash in New Mexico. Where Aliens were carted off by the gov't.. Or was it nonsense.. Any one want to comment on the Alien part i appreciated it.

No I figured it out last nite. You take the square root of pie divided by the number of accords sold by that dealership in a month multiplied by the average weight in kilograms of the sale team and that's your number. Subtract that number from dealer invoice and that's what the dealership pays, it was actually less confusing than I thought.

Brian's right, it's just to check out the latest models and concept cars. Of course, if you're looking for some free tote bags, water bottles or toys (my son now has a pretty cool stuffed VW Beetle), it's definitely the place to go. All time best was getting a $50 voucher if I test drove an Explorer.

We're cool. brian125 has been a wealth of information on this board. So have others. My post wasn't exactly short, perhaps an editor would have helped me. On the other hand, brian125 could use some punctuation and spell-checking, but none of us is perfect.
Besides, I forget all the negative comments when I'm zooming around less-impressive vehicles on Bay Area freeways.
Thanks for having my back, though, huskerfan5.
P.S. I started a post about driving impressions, but I'm all alone. After you buy, come share how your new baby drives.

Hi, I am also looking for a LX CVT in bayarea. After quoting 10+ dealers in Bayarea, currently, I get a OTD 22800 already. It seems still far from bottom line. But I don't know how to step further in the price research.

I typically go every year to the local show, often with a friend who is in the market - even if I am not currently.
The value I see is the ability to check things like back seat room & access, or control layouts, of 2 or 3 comparable models withing 5 minutes.
Much easier to compare things 'back-to-back-to-back'
when they are located only feet from each other, rather than
having to drive to different dealerships.
Just my 0.02 gallons worth of advice...
Going back in March.

Anyone receive a good deal on a 2013 Honda Accord LX in LA county recently? I can't seem to get dealers to budge on even 23k OTD. Maybe I have to wait till the end of the month
#28086 of 29557 2013 Accord Lease or Finance?
Jan 18, 2013 (9:28 am)
I'm planning to get a new Accord 2013 sedan around March-April. I usually keep cars for atleast 5 years .If I want to buy the car, can you suggest me if I should go for leasing and purchase after the 3 year lease(pay interest on remaining period only) or go for financing straight from the start. Also, how much it would cost me for an LX model.

Finally going to take the plunge. I would suggest you lease if you drive less than 10k a yr. Cheaper price on lease.. Keep your cars in excellent shape. Cant come up with a decent down payment. Otherwise i would buy. I think by the time you are ready to buy/ lease the Accord there will be leasing money support from Honda corp. There are no incentives now. If you go into the leasing forum i'm sure somebody could tell you what you might pay to buy out a 3 year lease on the Accord.
