At the time of my car purchase, the dealer mentioned that when you get the statement from the Honda Financing (Capital One) just send your cheque to him and everything will be taken care of.
Yesterday I got the statement from Capital One auto finance, which states the balance amount is 22,075 when my loan is for 22000. Not sure from where did that extra 75 bucks came from.
The cheque what I have from PenFed is a blank cheque for 25K limit which I got from them for buying a car. So can I use the same cheque to pay capital one or do i need to apply for re-financing?

First of all, not all of these "Prices Paid" numbers are factual. I used to have to deal with this on a daily basis.
No dealer is going to refund any money to you. I'm guessing you probably got an excellent deal.
Relax and just enjoy your new ride!

I went to a dealer two days ago to look at a 2013 EX-L 4cyl in white. They really seemed to want my business even though I was not ready to buy for a few weeks. I was quoted 28785 (MSRP) less military discount (28285 actual) They started out with an offer of 9000 trade for my 2008 Subaru impreza with out even looking at it. KBB is about 10500. I told them this and my trade value jumped a couple times until they reached 13500 (I owe 8500). I don't know how to take it. Do I look at it as 10500 for trade and 3000 off msrp? At this point the sales manager actually came out to talk to me. They gave me the "four square" sheet for me to take home and offered me a demo car to show the wife. Dealer fee is 599 which is about in line for around here.
Also do I arrange my own financing or talk to the dealer. We have A+ credit.
Any word when the 2014's come out? My wife and I really want a white with black leather combo but it is not offered for 2013.

Get the 10-day payoff amount from CapOne -- your interest rate was 4.6% so you're paying arnd $2.70-$2.80/day in interest (that $75 is your first month's interest)
Is the check from Penfed for a car purchase or refinance? Call Penfed and see if you can use that check to refinance or if they need to send you a new one (in that case ask them if they can send a new check directly to CapOne)

I want to thank everyone for all the great advice and pricing info. I got a much better deal after reading and rereading every post here for the last two weeks. I didn't have time to start thur or fri and didn't want to wait another month so I started yesterday, June 1. My strategy was to call dealers that had my car and color in stock.
My spill was "I'll buy today for 27.5 + TTL." The replies were "that's crazy talk", bye ; "come in and deal", no; " how about 28xxx" not today, I may check back. I was getting very discouraged and starting to question my strategy. Then bingo, I bought a car on the 10th call.
I know it's not the best deal ever, but i think I did O.K. I'm sure I would have paid more without the info learned here. I hope my numbers can help others. Thanks again.
