Sorry, nobody can tell you whether this was a good deal or not if it includes a trade-in. gameshowlover may be telling you you can get the car for $22,300, but if they are giving you $3,500 for a cluncker worth $100, you are really getting the car for $21,600. Conversely, if the dealer thinks they could sell your trade for $6,500, they could sell you the car for thousands under invoice and still make a profit on the deal.

True to above post. However it's almost always worth it to sell your car privately. Honda dealer offered me 5k for wife's 04 Accord, I put it on Craigslist, sold it for $7800 in one day, had 14 people call wanting to see the car. Car was clean with no mechanical issues and garage kept, low miles, so I also felt better selling privately, otherwise they would have given me 5,000 and detailed it and listed for $10,500 and ultimately sell for $9,500. These dealers are out to squeeze every last penny out of you. A salesperson will rip you off to the tune of 1,300 bucks just to make himself an extra $130 or even less. Then there accessories, the finance guy, extended warranties, remote start, etc....

Is it just me or the accord sport interior color display comes only in red? Or is it something u can customize in all trims? I saw the LX in blue and I like it. But the sport videos I have seen shows the displays in red? ?? So not sure.

Truecar is a true rip off. At least try CarWOO or SOME other outfit. True car no longer gives you all the prices out there - especially the high volume dealers who discount heavily. I suggest looking also at Cars.com. You can see all dealers in an area and actually see how many cars they have on their lot. Obviously the more they have, the more they discount. Work those internet managers hard and you can come away with a great deal. And stick it to the Truecar CEO who has turned into a true ripoff type. All for a $400 commission his company gets on each car.
Good luck with your purchase, Honda's are the best!

#28233 of 32222 Good OTD quote on 2013 EX-L, 4 cyl. sedan w/o Nav?
Jan 29, 2013 (4:57 am)
I was wondering if anybody could give me an opinion as to whether I am getting a good quote on a 2013 EX-L, 4 cyl. sedan. I contacted a dealer by email and got the following OTD quote: 29,342.33, which includes tax, title transfer, and fees. I live in Florida and the quote is coming from a Florida dealership. I am paying cash for the car, with no trade in, and just transferring the tag from my current vehicle. I'm new at all this, so any advice or assistance anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply. I emailed for the breakdown of the quote but haven't heard back yet. I assumed this was a high quote based on some of the numbers I have seen in this forum. Once I get the numbers though I'll post them. Thanks!
