i was trying to get price quotes on the Accord LX CVT, and i tried via cars.com, edmunds.com, carwoo.com, but i haven't received any decent price quote. They are sneding me their automated "e-price" quote that is around 20100+790 dest which is pretty bad, any suggestions (like any other websites or something), thanks.
Have you tried www.carsdirect.com or American Express car buying service?
Perhaps it is the going price. What are you looking to pay?

Once again, Brian I can tell you really don't know the business like you think you do.
You wrote.." What dealer wants a 5 or 6 yr (old) car??????????????"
Actually those are the ones in the greatest demand. A nice 5 year old car that is a popular model are in very high demand. We would take those cars, detail them to perfection, run them through a 105 point inspection and do whatever reconditioning was necessary. We couldn't get enough of them. If they did happen to need any of those items you mentioned, we would do the work and show the buyers what we did.
We would even sell nice ten year old and older Hondas and Toyotas.
We would NOT keep Audis, Land Rovers, Volvos or Volkswagens. These we would take to the auctions or wholesale them. Years of experience caused these decisions to be made. We didn't need the headaches or unhappy customers. On rare instances we would perhaps make an exception but we never kept a Land Rover or an Audi.

Your email quotes will only get you so far with pricing. To secure your best deal You need to negotiate One on One with either internet manager or sales manager by phone letting them know you will buy immediately with a credit card deposit the last days of this month.
Your other option is on feb,28th go visit several dealers and make your best deal.
You will never find a good price the way you are going about your business.
you have no leverage the way your trying to buy this accord.
read my prior post and do what i'm saying and you will secure your best deal in your area.

Well thats great news your telling me. Most be something new. I guess the dealership you worked at was one of the very few who gave that trade in car a good value. Like i posted.. Over the many years i have inquired about a trade in from time to time All my cars are garaged kept nothing needed to be replaced or fixed. dealers never offered me fair market value. Why is that?? My cars are in demand.
My neighbor down the block tried to trade in his 3, 1/2 yr lexus. The dealership felt mabey this old guy is stupid enough and told him the best he could do was about 8 thousand less than book. Just not a demand car i guess.
I'm assuming i really dont know this car business like you.

That's more than $2300 off the list price. Sounds pretty good to me.
Invoice on an LX CVT is about $21300+. You are getting a below invoice price on an all-new car that's winning awards and comparison tests. Go for it. Enjoy!+++

The dealer is out there to rip you off on the trade-in. Keep haggling and he may give you addl $500.

Not yet, but will try. I know Anderson offered me the $19, 579 plus $790 destination. They are kind of far from me. I am in PA. Will contact managers as Brian suggested. My target OTD is $21.5 but if I get it for an extra $300 I would consider. We will see.

Dealers use NADA pricing or Galves prices.All low ball figures. Every now and then a dealer will advertise a trade at kbb price. If your not selling your car privately at 4/5/6 yrs dont expect top dollar. Hopefully you may get a fair price from the dealership.

Brian, I hate repeating myself but dealers pay what they think the trades are worth and rarely stick to "book" prices.
Then, unlike private sellers, they have to consider the costs of reconditioning the trades, doing detail and minor dent rempval and touch ups if necessary.
If you don't like what you are offered, SELL IT YOURSELF! You might get lucky or you might get stuck dealing with flakes, joyriders, people who never show up etc. A lot of risks involved.
Also, in many states there is a sales tax credit on the value of trade in's. This can be substancial if the trade is worth a lot.
