Finally went to the closest dealership (in Saint Louis, MO) and got the 2013 Accord EXL I4 for $24900 financed, have to pay TTL.
Car price + Dest Charge $24700
Doc fee $200
TTL Should be about 1900
Total Cost : 26800
No hassle purchase and no up-selling from finance either. However I was given the extended warranty offers
Honda Care - 6yr 100k - $100 deductible == 1700 (is $750 from saccucci)
Gap Ins == $695
Key repl ins == $290
Road size Hazard Ins == $460
Dent Repair warranty == $420
Dealer is providing 100% cash back guarantee (if unused) on Honda care , if I decide before saturday.
I think having key replacement insurance is better since each key costs around $300 (per the dealer).
Please let me know your opinion on the warranties.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you for that. I'm not sure why the one dealer won't budge...unless they keep the "tax".

Can someone please give me breakdown of the cost. Cost of the car, tax, doc fee. It will be more useful if someone is also either from Cincinnati or Kentucky to know the exact price OTD. What is the lowest price that we can negotiate on Honda accord EXL

Dest/ charge of $790 added on to your negotiated sale price of car.
example: negotiated price .....................12,000 then you add
Dest/ charge, doc fee's, Dmv, and Taxes for a out the door price

The Sport has larger and nicer looking tires, lower profile and this is subjective. It will ride a bit different than the LX. The biggest difference will be the cost to replace them later, The Sports tires will cost more and not last as long, as their treadlife is less with the higher speed rating. It is a nice looking model.

That's exactly what I was looking at. To replace a tire on the sport would be $277.99 for a Michelin, same tire that comes on the car MXM4, plus 2.50 tire tax here in New York plus 15.00 for mount and balance and roadside warranty, plus NY sales tax in my particular county comes to $320 for each tire, if you damage the rim hitting the curb or a big pothole, your looking at probably around $350.00 for the rim plus $320 for he tire. They are nice tires but very very expensive to replace, which jacks up the five year cost to own.

My 2 cents...
There's probably not one number for the "lowest cost" for an EXL, since that will differ in each market, and in terms of how you negotiate.
Overall, however, it seems like some people are getting around $2000 off of the list price.
2013 Accord Sedan EX-L lists for $28,785.
That's the list price with destination. Maybe you could get it for c. $26,800. Some people seem to be getting that model for even a little less, but that might be a ball park to start with to give you a rough idea.
You have to add tax, title, dealer prep fee, license, and so on onto that.
Try emailing several dealers in your area and see what they'll do on price. The huge Marysville Ohio factory where these are made has ramped up to full speed production, and so there are a lot of these around now for sale. Many dealers are probably willing to let a bargain shopper pick one up for a good discount.
Happy shopping! Let us know how it goes. Best of luck! You've picked an excellent car, and so you're already a winner.

Can that bigger Sport model tire 18 be put on a EXL model ? would this cause a real bad ride.. I would figure the suspension is alittle different in Sport.

Anything for a price Brian, but then your mileage would be off unless you had a gear changed in your odometer by somebody who knows what they are doing. I love the 18 inch tires, they look great, but for practical purposes I rather have 17 inch with the 55mm sidewall as opposed to a 35mm sidewall or low profile which is prone to bubble if you go over too many potholes or rough road surfaces. A tire guy at Costco told me yesterday that the lower profile tires are prone to bubbling from just that and customers are constantly replacing tires that have bubbled from pot holes or really bad uneven road surfaces.
