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 29861 Accord Coupe Prices and Inventory???
Feb 21, 2013 (4:16 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.

this country is still in economic despair - in case you haven't noticed - and divorce, foreclosure, credit card issues, and a host of other problems negatively affect the majority of this country's personal credit scores
I thought I was pretty well versed in the logic behind credit score calculations. I am still trying to figure out how divorce affects it. I see it mentioned a few times, by different people. But, how is divorce affecting the credit rating?
Credit rating is based on the past record of paying bills on time, income to debt ratio and a few other finance related categories. There is no rating for being single, married, divorced, or otherwise.
Do people stop paying their financial obligations when they go through divorce? That I can see hapenning, where one or both parties, out of spite, stop paying back the loans. But, divorce, in of itself should not affect one's credit score.
When someone gets married, their credit scores do not magically get higher just because they got married. Why should they magically drop when someone is divorced. Unless, of course, they are being spiteful and fail to complete their financial obligations.

blueiedgod can you please explain why so I can contact the dealer and let them know that I am unhappy.
First of all. Are you unhappy? Or are you unhappy because some annonymouse person on the internet told you that you are unhappy?
If you are perfectly happy paying $40,020 for an Accord EX (hopefully it is a V6 at that price), then you should not contact them.
If you can't figure out where $40,020 came from, and don't care to know, then you don't need to contact them either.
I am not going to tell you that you are unhappy, if you are perfectly happy.

You answered your question in your last paragraph. When they decided to get a divorce, my cousin's wife charge $30K on their joint AMEX card, knowing her prominent attorney husband would pay the bills.
The lease for the car my wife drive's is in my name. Do you think she would start making the payments if she split.
Fortunately, I went through an amicable divorce in my first marriage but I have heard horror stories. Be careful with joint credit.
And don't forget that alimony and child support can cause financial hardship.
Please stick with auto purchase comments in this forum.
