Agreed, I was using that to gauge prices offered here in North Jersey, however no plans of using the service. At the beginning of June I got the following quotes from one of the dealers here in the North Jersey:
Accord EXL 4-cyl 25.5K, + $500 financing w/Honda
Accord EXL 4-cyl w/NAV 27.2K, + $500 for financing w/Honda
**They do charge 299 doc fee + doc and registration/plates.
After comparing USAA prices with what I was offered 2 weeks ago, they aren't much better.
24.5K for EXL 4 Cyl Accord should be doable now, come end of August better pricing should be available just like last year. Too bad my 2012 SE has only 12K and I can't get a good trade-in value, that said I guess I will keep adding a few more miles to it for now.
Cheers everyone, Julian
P.S. If anyone is in North Jersey and needs any assistance don't hesitate to contact me. I have helped a lot of friends and relatives got some sick deals during the last few years.

These prices are really high, I am curious to see how much it costs to ship a car to Texas from North East or Florida, can you save some $$$.
Also if you get a sales order faxed from a remote dealer, maybe you can use to negotiate a better deal locally, have you tried that, try Weymouth Honda in MA, they will email you a quote will detailed pricing and use that with your local dealers.
Best of luck, JUlian

I completely agree on your first point. However, I don't think Honda is going to offer leather in the Sport....ever. They would lose money on people jumping to the EX-L. I am in the market now for a Sport and would probably pay $2000 for leather and heated seats. It just doens't look like it's going to happen. Maybe I'm wrong....
The different trims should offer different wheels, in my opinion. I still can't believe the top level Touring wheels are the same as the EX. That is awful and ridiculous at the same time.

Brian must be out on the golf course or sleeping late today, or he would probably tell you to send those emails at the end of the month when the dealer is more apt to deal and letting them know you will buy that day. In their eyes, telling them today that you may buy at the end of the month just makes you a shopper, not a buyer. While it is probably more advantageous if you wait till the end of the month, you would have probably have gotten a better quote if you said you would buy today.

I live in Massachusetts, and I received similar quotes for the EX-L from several dealers in my area.
Do you think deals can be made at end of this month, or should I wait towards the end of August when the 2014 models are set to be released?
How much of a deal would I be able to negotiate? I do not want to pay more than $24.5k, if possible.

It is really hard to gauge, may be close to what you willing to pay or it could be better. It will depend on a number of factors, inventory being one of them, but also how aggressive Honda wants to be overall. Last certain dealers will let a few cars go just to meet their numbers, and that is when customers really win.
What I would suggest from experience, if you want to get a 2013, August would be the best timing. Do not go to the dealer on a weekend though, they are busy as hell and you will not get their attention. Also the price quoted is never the best price. I have walked out many times of the dealerships just to be pulled back in and make the deal that I wanted happen.
The Accord SE I bought last August, I was asked to make a reasonable buy offer, which was almost 22% off MSRP in my case, but it got me the deal. I don't think such a discount will be available on the 2013s, but a 15% to 18% discount I think will be soon, on certain trims.
I am helping a friend get a CRV as well, and yes we're waiting till end of August, at which point I think Honda will increase their dealer holdbacks and other incentives, my prediction.

Thanks for the advice, Julian.
I might email a couple of dealers at the end of this month with my offer and see if they bite.
Worse case, I will wait till the end of August and try again.

Weymouth Honda quoted me a sales price of $25,519 including $790 destination fee for the EX-L, about a week ago.
Their documentation fee is $239 and registration fee is $125. Their fees are one of lowest I have seen in MA.
Good luck with your search.

I've been shopping in the Austin area a bit via email. Best price I got for an Ex-L in the area was $26,150 + ttl. This was from Honda of San Marcos and included a limited lifetime power train warranty. I have not countered them yet.
I also got a quote from a DFW area dealer (Autonation in Lewisville). $25,771.
None of these prices include the add ons that you want. Just an Ex-L.

The Central Texas market is hot right now and dealers do not have to offer deep discounts on the Accord.
