Brian, with all the work you must have done, no doubt you have gotten the best email prices, but you're kidding yourself if you think that's their bottom line price. That is purely your opinion with nothing to back that up. While I have no evidence to validate my opinion, I do have common sense on my side. It would be appreciated if you shared your email prices. It would help out emailers as well as those visiting dealerships. Thanks

It wasn't as much work as you think just a system. i posted the prices above. some were email prices. My best prices came from direct negotiations one on one with the sales manager/ Internet mgr. There are dealerships who will give you there bottom line selling price. take it or leave it. I guess i'm in the minority on that one.. Where do you live and what dealers are you looking at.
The last poster was dead on about the economy/gas. Honda will have to ramp up or they stand to lose out. The honda civic stands to do very well this yr. The Corolla has a 2014 redesign along with the Sonata, Genesis and Elantra. Hyundia will not go away they are doing well. Nissan also has the new Sentra out. Alot of competition. Gas prices drive people to buy smaller more fuel efficient cars. Big truck sales are hurting. Average joe is not going to buy one..
With the exception of a dealer looking to move one of his cars off his lot at the end of the month a little cheaper that price i posted is best prices right now.
Darrin8... bought from Autosport in N.J. last month. The dealer moved the touring model off his lot for 1000 below invoice and reduced his doc fee's by 100 dollars to take that sale.. The deal was done by phone with a credit card deposit. I called that same dealership at 6pm and that black touring was the last one he had. This is how you make your best deal.
#28600 of 32173 2013 Accords on the road

I'm starting to see more of them.
Of course there are still more 2013 Altimas, bc that model came out months before the new Accord.
Honda is doing a great incentive deal this month: 1.9 for 60 months.
For those who say the Accord costs a little more than the competition, the answer is yes: you can expect to pay a little more to get the best.
With a good discount, however, the Accord still may offer the best bang for the buck in a highly competitive midsize market.

No, Brian...dealers will give you what your car is actually worth. Sure, they will look at NADA and maybe KBB but they won't pay you more than they can buy a similar car for at the local auction.
A lot of cars are "back of book". they simply aren't worth what the books say and some cars will bring more than book if it's a high demand used car that the store knows will sell quickly.
After the last penny has been wrung out of the new car deal don't expect a store to pay more for the trade than it's worth.
And, often it's an undesirable car the store really doesn't want.

#28604 of 32173 Accord Coupe Prices and Inventory???
Feb 21, 2013 (3:16 pm)
Hey everyone, I am in the market to buy a 2013 Accord Coupe. I am wondering if anyone has purchased one recently and what your OTD price was (location would be great too)? I am leaning toward the EX 4Cyl Auto, because I am not a big fan of leather. The interesting thing is that I see very few of those on the lot here in VA, but a see a lot of the EX-L models in 4Cyl or V6. What is the inventory like in the locations around you for the Accord Coupes? Any special offers on them? Thanks!
BTW: Thanks for alll the great advice I have read on how to improve the chance of getting a great deal on a new car.

This may sound funny and dont get the wrong ideal. i always have something you write that i disagree with.
You are correct on this one.
If you have a well maintained 4,5 or 6 year old car you have to sell it privately to get the most money back. What dealer wants a 5 or 6 yr car?????????????? especially American. If your trade in was in good shape and well maintained why would you trade to the dealer??? Now if you tell me you dont like to sell privately then you take what you get from the dealer and stop complaining about price. A 5/6 yr old car probably needs tires ,tuneup, front end work, brakes , maybe rotors and timming belt down the line.

Your best bet on a good deal might be in M.D Check dealers websites for inventory before calling.
Search all high volume dealerships in and around your area. this will help you get a better price than from your local V.A dealers with there high doc fee's.

ffelt so bad that I asked my wife to help them and show them the invoice price on the Iphone atleast. They were able to negotiate a better deal after that even though the salesman was so freakin mad at me.
You're lucky that salesman didn't reach across his desk and strangle both of you.
You probably cost him a couple hundred bucks in commission.
I bet the two girls were cute.
A customer, without a clue, comes into a dealership to buy a car...it's their fault. You can't realistically expect a dealership to give awAy money, which is what they'd be doing.
