Just inked a deal at Honda Cars of Boston. 2013 Accord EXL v6 with Navi.
PURCHASE PRICE - $28,500 including all fees.

TRADE - 2003 Civic coupe with 130k. $3,000 value. (Edmunds put it at $2,400)

I bought the ex-l no navi for 28,200 otd but they made me add the extend 8 years warranty for an additional $2,300. I've had my car for less than a week. Is it too late to take it out? I really didn't want it.

Sorry to hear about what your sleazy dealership did to you. Most dealerships always get over on a first time buyer.... Dealerships are good at that. Dont feel so bad very common practice. The bigger question is???????????
Why would you agree to something you did not want? $2300 Call the honda corp and tell them the dealership mislead and took advantage of you Tell them you want a refund or you will report that dealership to your state/ consumer complaint/ affairs board.
Enjoy your new car............ good luck

"They made me"
1. Did they hold a gun to your head?
2. The price for that coverage is double what it should be. Unless you live in Florida, you can buy the same plan for half that price from two reputable Honda dealers.
3. You don't have to buy it at the time of sale. You can buy it anytime during the 3yr/36k basic warranty.
4. i hope you can unwind that screw job you got. Get to work!

I guess if that last post was real we could assume
The Honda salesman are always looking to give us a fair price and not get over.
THEY Have to make a profit to. I like to send our friend who buys $4 milk to that dealership so he could feel good about himself...... You just cant make this stuff up
You would think making her pay $1400 for what that coverage is worth but they went for the jugular.
This was like a pitbull in the ring with a rooster. No chance at all
Let the manager ring that bell again.. Good job Honda.
#28515 of 32216 Extended Warranty Info
Feb 19, 2013 (7:02 am)
I got this from one of the Accord geek forums. Edmunds won't let me link to it but the info is worth reading:
"Thanks everyone for the great information. The thread should help many make the decision which may or may not be the same as mine.
I think the main points are:
1. Make sure it is Honda Care and not some Fly by Night Company.
2. You do not have to get it at the time of sale.
3. It is usually cheaper to get it from a different Honda dealer. http://hyannishondacare.com/ was the cheapest of the ones I looked at.
I've a strong believer in being self insured. I get insurance for catastrophic things like health, home, and auto accidents. Auto accident is more that should I get sued up the wazoo then auto body damage. Being self insured means sometimes I will have to pay but over the long run, I will be well ahead. I was concern about the DI and CVT but the power train warranty which comes with the car is 5 years/60k miles. I also believe in Honda engineering.
Peace of mind means different things to different people. To me it means not spending money for something I did not need or want. I often spent money on things I did not need but wanted.
At this time, I decided not to get Honda Care."
#28516 of 32216 2013 Honda Accord EX Purchase - Good Deal?
Feb 19, 2013 (7:30 am)
I recently purchased a 2013 Honda Acord EX.
I “traded in” my 2010 Honda Crosstour lease that I owed 8 more payments of $391 on for a total owed of $3,128. There was no positive equity in the vehicle.
I have a 561 credit score (horrible credit because of my divorce)
I put $1,500 down
I got a 9.49% interest rate for 72 months
Vehicle price including accessories, delivery and installation charges: $26,399.92
Plus 6% tax, transfer of tag, 6 year or 72,000 mile warranty, 5 year tire warranty, tinted windows for a total of $29,262.03
Payments come out to $535 a month
Did I get a good deal?

9.49% interest!! I hope you pay it off quickly. That is the higest APR I have seen on a new car over the last 10 years. Why did you buy a warranty, tire protection, tint, etc? Those are all huge $$$ money makers for the dealers and not worth it on a car like a reliable Honda.
I am sorry I have to say it..there's one born every minute
