#28959 of 32228 Crazy Price? 2013 Accord Sport CVT
Mar 17, 2013 (2:25 pm)
After test driving and negotiating on a 2013 Honda Accord Sport (MSRP 24,980), we just walked out on a $20,880 price point, granted the total out the door would have been $24,678. The offer is still available but I know not for long. Please help in figuring out if this is a good price.. they gave a $4105 discount yet would not budge on taking out the dealer installed options such as splash guards, wheel locks, and digital tinting and pinstripe. They didn't have the color we wanted so they asked for a $500 refundable deposit to go and retrieve the color, should we call them back and sign or is $24,678 OTD still to high, my wife wants $24,500 are we crazy? Mind you these numbers are all out the door final prices. Please help as I feel time is running out, I believe this is a steal of a deal but she doesn't.

IMO, you are crazy to pay that much for an LX CVT. total out-the-door should be closer to 22.5k for that model (22.0k has been posted here from an OH deal), unless you value splash guards, wheel locks, and digital tinting and pinstripe at such a high premium, which is laughable.
MSRP including destination $23,270.00
Weymouth Sale Price $20,692.91 (range in this forum is 20.2 - 21.0)
start at 20.7k and work your way up after tax and dmv...

This is for the Sport Model, NOT the LX.. so with that said is it good?

Provide detailed breakdown of your $24,678 number. Any trade in?

The Sport CVT is very popular because you get the power seat and the impressive 18 inch wheels and Michelin tires with black-only interior color options. With a MSRP of 25.0, the best price i have is 22.5 (in OH) before tax and dmv fees. If you can get that one o-t-d for 24.5k, then that is a good deal. I don't know Florida tax and DMV but i do know that they TRY to get people on the optional doc fee:
FL average $610 range $0 to $998 truth: No cap or rules

I have been aggressively haggling the price down from 23,980 to getting price quotes from the 4 other honda dealers in my area and asking the dealer to beat the price. I even used the truecar.com price to get me leverage, finally we came into the dealer with an agreement of $21,079 we got their and my wife wanted lower and so we got it down to $20,880 discount was like previously said brought down to $4105 but then they added the dealership installed accessories which included, the $998 pro package which entailed anti wheel locks, splash guards, and cargo tray. Then they added a digital tint fee of $299, and finally added the pinstripe fee. Which read out to be $22K after dealer accessories, with that said the tax was calculated from that and price was given at a total of $24,678 out the door. Many factors leading to this price was the lowest dealer fee in my area of $559 and then a $250 discount coupon (a promo offered just for registering to their website) and finally I told them we were returning customers in which brought us to our price. I hope that breaks it down for you.

not to sound like a car buyer expert myself, but i think you can do a little bit better than that. 24678 out of the door on a sedan sport i assumed? i was offered 25200 out of the door for a EX coupe CVT tranny, white with ivory interior, dealer throws in an all season mats too.

Seems to me there is $1120 worth of dealer fluff. The accessories if you really want them are worth $300 to $400. If you can live without that stuff, find another car because the dealer is distracting you. Or wait until Friday March 29th. Get rid of that $559 fee. So you see how a great price of $20880 eventually becomes inflated.
Negotiate on the total OTD price and then add TTL.

Waiting for the 29th will cause the dealer to drop the dealership fee?
