#28695 of 32167 Availability of Accord Sport CVT in Bay Area
Feb 24, 2013 (10:57 pm)
I started looking for 2013 Honda Accord Sport SVT in the San Jose area recently and found to a surprise that so few dealers actually have those vehicles. And even those who do, are really snobbish and don't really show any interest in the customer.
The lowest I was offered was $25,300 out the door from a showroom 50mi away and it wasn't even the color of my choice.
Apparently this seems like a good deal since not many are showing interest in selling it.
Has anyone else seen the same thing happen? Also, what do you think about this non-negotiable price?

Availability on that model is low because it's so popular. Lotta bang for the buck with that car!
But the factory in Ohio is going full tilt, and so supplies should be catching up with demand by this time.

I never got the whole 'bigger is better' idea on car tires. All it usually does is drive up the replacement cost and in most cases gives you less tread life. Sure, they do look nicer, but at a cost. Lets not forget that these bigger, lower profile tires use to be only found on expensive sports car for a reason. Come on, 'V rated tires on a family sedan where your top speed will be maybe 85 or 90.

1.9% APR is an offer from Honda that started last week (I would assume anyone with a decent credit should be able to get that). The owner/dealer did not give you anything extra with that (again, I'm assuming you don't have bad credit). Regarding lowering the price, you can give it a shot but don't feel bad if you don't get anything.

Yeah, V rated (which means good up to c. 140 mph--or something like that) is overkill on a car like the Accord. The Accord is electronically limited to max speed of about 125mph in any case, and I doubt I'll ever get to 100 in mine.
But a V rated Michelin is a fine performance tire. It's more tire than probably 95% of people ever need on a family sedan.
But that's kinda like the Accord itself. They didn't meet the federal crash standards—they exceeded them. Almost everything in the Accord is done to a very nice level, esp. given the price.
And so I think most people can feel happy about the Accord's OEM tires. They're all that you would expect—or maybe even a little more than that—for this price point.

I am also looking to buy Accord LX CVT this week. I am from NY Where dealers are not willing to deal as they are in MD or MA.
Maybe we can buy together to get better deal.

I know what you mean with that. Dealers around are not willing to do that kind of price.
This is where i stand. There is a dealer close by that is willing to match my offer. So, i will try tomorrow. If they don't, i have to put a deposit for the best offer i have and seal that deal via deposit tomorrow.
I was going to try today, but schedule has been crazy trying to negotiate and personal stuff. So, tomorrow afternoon/evening i will know for sure.
I wouldn't mind buying w someone else, but time is kind of short for me and i need to pull the trigger or i will have nothing. I will give you the tips, dealers, etc. i can refer to the salespeople i will deal with.
Now, if i don't seal the deal locally, we can try together to do it at the dealer that doesn;t play this games. Now, i am not sure if they will do any better for the 2 (maybe an extra $50-100 at best), but is the end of the month and this month has been short. I am almost positive they will do it for you too.
I will keep u posted.

#28704 of 32167 "Invoice": Includes Destination Cost?
Feb 25, 2013 (2:22 pm)
When people refer to "invoice" price, does that include the destination cost ($790 for accord)?
