Honda Accord, Coupe, Sedan

I didnt realize how much of a process it was going to be to buy a 2013 Honda Accord Ex coupe automatic 4 cyl!!!!!
The Frisco, TX David Mcdavid dealer told me "they would match and even beat ANY price I brought in as long as it was on paper". Well that was a LIE! I went in today with a new quote I got from a different dealer of $25,244 OTD....and instead of matching the price, they took that price and added $1400 in accessories to the price and gave me a new total of almost $27,000!! I told the dealer that I didnt want any accessories and he told me that I was ultimately getting them for free because the car was already discounted for me and he refused to take them off. I was livid! I know two other people that have been pissed off by this dealership and regret even wasting my time there.
I am going to go to another Honda dealer tomorrow that I have heard good things about and hope for a better outcome, and am keeping my fingers crossed that the end of the month will do me some good.
Has anyone else had the issue of a dealer refusing to sell the car without the accessories? I dont know what else to do! Even though I told them I DO NOT WANT ANY ACCESSORIES, they didnt listen to my request. How do I handle that situation besides leaving?

#29646 of 32172 purchased Accord EX
May 29, 2013 (10:53 pm)
Just got done buying the EX
Purchase price 23,335
doc fee - 80
sales tax - 1,873
electronic registration - 16
License fees - 256
OTD (before down payment & trade in) 25,560 (I think the high trade in value skewed this #)
down payment - $500 (wanted to lower my montly payment slightly)
trade in - 3,000 for '01 camry w/150k miles
60 months at 1.9
Per KBB, fair trade in value for my car was about $1700(definitely just fair condition) so I don't think the 3000 trade in offer was accurate. I'm assuming they are trying to keep the appearance up of not selling the car between 22,350-22,800??? No one else was offering anywhere near that on the trade in.
I went into 2 places and spoke with a number of others over the phone. I asked for a $385 monthly payment for 60 months, with them getting my car(assumed 2,000 was the best real trade in number) and $500 as a down payment. No one was in the universe at first. The offers I received were crazy. I just kept saying no until they hit the number I wanted.
I would think a purchase price of 22,400 is attainable.
I was also considering the Sport but wasn't getting anywhere with the number I wanted ($370).

I live in the Chicago area and am wondering what people are paying for a 2013 Accord EX-L 4 cyl w/NAV.

So your purchase price would be 22,280 - 500 = 21,780?
If I could have gotten that on a Sport(w/cloth interior), I would have jumped all over it. I needed automatic due to the wife. If manual and leather are attractive to you, sounds like an awesome deal. I'm assuming the msrp for the leather is over $1,000. What's the invoice cost of the car with leather? It sounds like your deal is over $2k under invoice. I'd love a recap after you purchase.
No one was interested in giving a great deal on the Sport when I was looking. I was watching the dealers and each only had a couple of Sports, and they kept turning over quickly. I moved onto the EX after reading this site about some of the deals people were getting on the EX.

I just went to two dealerships after speaking with an internet sales rep on the phone and found that they would not offer the price originally stated. On the phone they said that the leather was included in the sport price of around 22k although it was an add on. When I informed them of what I was told on the phone they said that they apologize for being misinformed. In addition, the approximate trade in value was several thousand less.
What a scam, you think you are saving time and headaches by making the phone calls yet instead they will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you to the dealership. Has anyone else had a similar experience. In addition, I was told that the 2014s are coming out in two weeks. Is that true? The salesman told me that for the first few months the most they could mark down is about 1k.

Emilynicole - you did the right thing - this is the type of dealer to stay away from. There are dealers who do not pack their cars with unwanted accessories and will sell the vehicle at a fair price. As Brian has stated, $1000 below invoice seems to be the fair market price right now. Stand your ground and you will get the price you are looking for.
Good luck, Bill G
