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!

Thanks for the tip. I have checked carwoo.com. It provides an average price. I will search on cars.com to check what i will get from high volume dealer.
#28233 of 32216 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!

Where in FL are you located? If at all feasible you should email Love Honda in Crystal River, Internet guy is Jerry Reed. I bought the 2013 EXL 4 dr I4 there Dec. 14, paying the following:
Service/doc fee 499
Already-installed dealer add-ons 241
Total out the door $27,510.
This was the best price I could get from about a dozen dealers from Orlando, Tampa etc. up thru Gainesville & Daytona Beach. Love also had the best price when I bought my 2008 Accord there. Did everything over the web & phone, only met when picking up the car. Little to no upselling pressure either.
Add ons were nitrogen, wheel locks, mud guards, striping & wheel well molding. Sales tax 6%.

Oops, I listed the salesperson's name, but have nothing to say about him, so...
I also had no trade-in, paid cash & transferred a tag, so other than the dealer add-ons you can make an apples to apples comparison.

Thanks a lot for the info! I'm in north Florida, but I'll definitely check out Crystal River if things don't work out with this dealership. I still haven't heard back about an itemized breakdown for the quote I got, but even with tax and doc fees, it seemed high. A couple other dealerships I contacted before seem to be around about the same ballpark as this place, so it might just be this area. Thanks again for the help!
