Does anyone read the prior posts? This forum is to inform and helps others who are looking to purchase a new Honda Accord. If you claim you have this incredible deal for $2,000 less than my good deal and for $2,500 under invoice, then post the name of the dealership and breakdown the costs/doc fees, etc..... You aren't the same guy who is dating a Victoria Secret model yet none of your friends, family or coworkers have ever seen you with her? If you purchase this car for $20,500 OTD, I promise I will make your first three months payments. It makes it very difficult to measure how good of a deal can be had, when posters who are either grossly misinformed, naive or both, post unrealistic numbers on this board. Please post dealers name and breakdown of all costs before taxes, local DMV fees and post the dealers doc fees.
#28151 of 29863 Trade-in credit and my Deal in San Antinio
Jan 23, 2013 (2:17 am)
First, I've been told that I don't get a sales tax credit on my trade-in (purchased and in my name) when I am trading in towards a leased car. Only one dealer has said that. Everyone else says that I will get credit. Can someone please give me a definitive answer on this please?
It has been great to see all these deals, so I'll post my offer in San Antonio. Appreciate any helpful comments. I plan to lease, but Honda doesn't seem to have a deal on the EX (that I know of) only the LX model.
2103 Accord EX
Selling Price $23,796
Accessories $439 (Window tint for Texas heat)
Total Price Including $24,235
State Sales Tax $1,569
Inventory Tax $58
License, Title, etc $126
Doc Fee $125
Total Price Including Accessories $26,114

Thanks Brian, I guess it depends on the actual distance and price difference, but is good to know because at times any of us might be in a rush to buy the car because we need it asap within a few days and that might be the quick choice and less research but is definitely worth the comparison, thanks for answering.

By the way, as far as distance, I don't mind the driving part as it might be my only choice, because the dealers near me are the small ones. So I will drive to nj or ny or as far as md. So it depends what they offer me to "please me" (like remote starter or something like that) or if I rather the $$ savings and it makes up for a decent difference after you subtract the gas and hassle to go that far.
On another topic, I am looking for the LX CVT, and I am curious if let's say the lx and the sport will drive the same as far as how smooth of a ride they provide. I like how the sport looks, but I heard that sport suspensions are not as "soft or smooth" and the bigger the tires the more you will feel the bumps in the road, any inputs on someone thAt knows about this will be appreciated.
I already test drove the LX, which is better than my 08 accord lx, but the test drive wasn't a long one, but again I was curious on the two suspensions and driving experience, thanks.

All Accords are somewhat performance tuned. In other words, the marshmallow suspension of the Camry won't be found on any Accord, which most people think is a good thing.
But after that you can somewhat go by the letters of the trim level. In other words:
LX=Luxury, even though it is a base model. And so an LX Accord has a slightly softer suspension, although it's still relatively firm compared to Camry, Altima, Sonata, etc.
Sport means what it says, and so the suspension and the tires are more for sporty handling, and less for comfort. You will feel more bumps, but might have more fun going around corners.
EX/EXL= Extra Luxury, and so goes back to the slightly softer LX mode, although there is still upgraded handling ("shock tower") with this trim, as well as premium V-rated high speed performance tires.

Ok, thanks for responding to me. I always heard that the Camry is a good car for drivers, but don't like the current model. I am most likely going to for the lx but I wouldn't mind the sport if I could get a decent deal. I will test drive both before I buy any. Thanks for your help.

I don't think you'll find any Honda literature that indicates that LX stands for luxury but now I realize that the Camry LE stands for lemon.

You are not getting "ripped off" but you are paying more than others due to the very high doc fee. Please review the link to understand that the doc fee is completely optional in Nevada ("No cap or rules"). So your dealer is essentially PADDING the good 25500 car price with 499 in additional profit. While they may say that they will not go lower, I'd wait til the end of the month or counter-offer at a somewhat lower doc fee. You must be prepared to WALK OUT or as Brian125 would say, negotiate over the internet (not in person).
Thanks for asking your questions before finalizing the deal - that is the way to go!

#28159 of 29863 What would be the ACCORD LX price at the last day of january
Jan 23, 2013 (11:59 am)
I read somewhere in this forum that at the end of this month I can expect something like $750 below the invoice for 2013 accord LX automatic. My question is does the invoice price include the destination charge?
