If you would like somebody to help to determine if an offer is a good deal or not, it helps if you make it easy. Since Sales tax and reg and license fees differ so much state to state it is impossible for somebody to give you an opinion on whether an OTD price is good.
Here is a great example from a previous poster who detailed all of the information needed to get an opinion on whether a deal was fair or not:
2013, Honda Accord EX-L CVT ( no navigation ) White Exterior / Ivory Interior.
-Factory Options ( None )
-Dealer Options (Pin Stripe, Nitrogen Tires, Wheel Locks, Trunk Tray, Splash Guards) - $495
-Dealer city/state ( bethesda/MD)
-MSRP (incl destination) ( -----)
-Invoice (incl destination) ( 24899 )
-Purchase Price ( $25394)
-Downpayment ( 0)
-Trade allowance (year, make model, mileage, options, condition of the trade) ( None )
-Tax - 813 ( va ) tags - 145
-Dealer fees ($200)
-Doc fees (none)

Good luck in negotiation. I think the price quote you have is a pretty good one, so it will be interesting to see if the dealership honors it.
Please post full details, as other posters have done about all costs if you do make a deal. That helps future buyers.

What do you guys think. Did I get a good deal or was there money still on the table. I know the $80 doc fee could most likely have been taken off but after 4 hours my dad didn't want to go any further since he wasn't about to not get the car for $80 (It got a little heated over the $80 since the salesman told me that the 22950 price was OTD before TTL and I questioned whether Doc Fees were considered TTL. Before that we had to have them take off $199 for a BS theft recovery option)
2013, Honda Accord Sport 2.4L I-4 cyl
-Factory Options ( Paddle shifters - not sure if this is standard or not but I like it a lot )
-Dealer Options (None that I didn't think came standard to sport )
-Dealer city/state ( Modesto, CA)
-MSRP (incl destination) ( $24980 )
-Invoice (incl destination) ( $unknown )
-Purchase Price ( $22950)
-Downpayment ( $0 with 0.9% financing)
-Trade allowance ( None )
-Reg Fee ($112)
-Dealer fees ($0)
-Doc fees ($80)
-Final OTD price ($25084)

Thank's for your post! It's nice and concise and really makes it easy to understand. Important that you posted your state and tax rate.
Since your in MA, comparisons to Weymouth are inevitable and relative to them you did many hundreds better so congrats.
Disagree with you that the other poster really got a "better" deal. Dealer got them with that inflated 495 for the appearance package and after that is subtracted and the purchase price added to the doc/dealer fee you were only at about $140 more. So i guess they got a better deal but it wasn't a BETTER deal
VA has less than half the tax rate of MA so their "OTD" even with the appearance group was less (agreeing with other posters....... exactly why posting OTD's and is not helpful without a LOT of other details)
Again, thanks for your post.

Want to include some more inputs..
1. I have been to many places and didn't find any car without dealer installed options. And the standard prices for those options ranging from $395 - $995
2. At One dealer , when I though i had the deal, he said Paint Protection + Interior Protection Package is $400 which cannot be removed from the pricing. That made me to leave the place without any further negotiations.
3. Finally i went through the options listed on multiple cars and made a quick cost of the options.
-> Trunk Tray - 140$
-> Splash Guards - 104$
-> Door Edge Guards - 95$
-> Wheel Locks - 55$
Total = $394
If you add all weather floor mats = $394 + $141 = $535.
These are the prices if you buy these items in Honda Parts department. You need some effort to install splash guards, wheel locks & door edge guards by your self.
Good luck to everybody.

According to Edmunds, invoice including dest is 22,929 so your price is right at invoice. Doc fee is relatively small so not a big deal there. Some folks have been able to get below invoice pricing on some models and in some areas but that is a function of the markets in those areas.
Overall I think you got a decent deal, especially if you are happy with the car. And 0.9% financing is a great kicker.

According to Edmunds invoice price including destination charges is 20639. Your price of 20589 (price plus doc fees) is slightly under invoice. Some folks have been getting deeper discounts to invoice price, so you may have room to negotiate price a little lower.

Hey i am calling in the dealerships and asking for some numbers, almost every dealership is getting really annoyed when i asked them for the money factor on this vehicle. Am i doing something wrong? i am looking for a 36 month 12k mile lease on Honda Accord Sport in Brooklyn, and it feels like every dealer wants me to come in and discuss everything in person as oppose to giving me numbers over the phone
what should i do?
