So far, most internet sales quote I have received on the Accord EX-L is around $25,500 with some dealers offering an additional $500 (on a first come first serve basis) if I finance through HFS. $25k is still above what I would want to pay. I was hoping to pay not more than $24.5k plus taxes, doc fees, etc...
Do you think it will be a good idea to email some of the internet managers at dealerships I have already contacted at the end of the month or should I just call them up and state my price and see if they will bite?
Since 2014 models are less than a couple of months away from release, when should I expect huge discounts on the 2013 models?
Any advice will be well appreciated.

I am looking for a particular Accord. All dealers that I've talked to and what checked in edmunds' inventory search shows that this dealer has 5 cars I am looking for whereas others only one. Should I be suspicious of this? These dealers are about two hours from me so I don't want to drive there for nothing. The dealer with 5 cars gave the best price so far, so I am somewhat motivated based on that. How can make sure dealer doesn't screw me over when I get there in person? Thanks!

I would appreciate yours or anyone else's input. I am looking for the Accord Ex-L V6 w/ Navi and believe it is the Honda Clearance event at the moment. MSPR is 32,860, True Market Value said approx. 32k. Now with the clearance event, are you familiar with pricing? How can I calculate the best price during this time?
Thanks in advance to anyone's input!

After calculating the dealerships doc fee's into your target price you should be shooting for 1500 below invoice price on most models. At worst case settling for 1000 below dealers invoice price.
You could find model pricing on Edmunds home page.

Huge savings like 2000 below invoice... More towards the very end of the year. The bigger question is if i buy a 2013 model in Nov, or Dec, 2013
How much did the 2013 accord model depreciate. On jan, 1st, 2014. it is now a 1 year old model.
Is buying the 2013 Accord for 1500 or 1800 below invoice worth it in a couple of months.
If you compare a 2011 Accord lx with 4k miles to a
.....................2012 Accord lx with 6 miles here are your numbers
2011 LX= $ 17,477 Dealers retail
2012 Lx=$ 19,598 Dealer retail
Going to re check my numbers against kbb, and galves
Your Sale price on a 2013 Accord needs to be more than $2120 below invoice to recoup depreciation value not buying the newer model.
If i'm buying its a no brainer i want the 2014 model.

I did it by requesting specific config quotes through edmunds, then I got 5 replies, and after emailing back and forth, Keeler Honda had the deal I mentioned. Looks like the forum policy prohibit publishing the sales agent name. His initials is KH.

Just paid $23778.00 last week which includes destination in Michigan for a 2013 EX. Was able to get $500.00 off by financing but plan to pay off after the 3 months necessary to get the discount. Probably could of done better but they also threw in paying up to $500.00 on your deductible for collision on any make of car in your household for 3 years. Was also able to get their tire and rim protection plan, roadside service, paint and fabric protection, windshield protection and theft for $700.00 I know seems best not to do but in Michigan there are many potholes and because we plan to take alot of cross country trips the roadside is nice to have. Had one car's finish here get nailed by acid rain so this is covered as well. They will also clean out all the salt stains on the flooring when you come in for oil changes. Did not take the extended warranty at this time.

You have to deal with the internet sales manager and only him . If your stupid enough to drive 2 hours on a dealers word without a faxed buyers order or some kind of agreement in writing you will be wasting your time, gas,and money. Not to mention very pissed off. Negotiate the deal on the phone letting that dealership know your 3 hours away and if he wants your business you need a faxed bill of sale/ with all the details of your purchase. You then hold that vehicle sale after looking over buyers order with a credit card deposit til you could get down to that dealership to pick up vehicle. 95% of all of my car buying is done this way. Read my prior posts on buying like this its pretty easy.. You just need to be by a fax machine.
Sorry for all the run on's i'm late for my golf tee time. just keep on asking for help you'll get it in this forum... If you want i will post later what you should tell 2 hr dealer and how to nail down sale with him.
