Depending on your area you might not get as high as 1800 below. Figure out your high buying asking price and your bottom line buying price for all dealerships. The touring models might not be selling like the other models making for a very good deal with the right dealership. Check dealers inventory and call dealerships with alot of touring models. By Expanding your dealership search within 100 miles of your house could prove to be a bigger factor in getting your targeted price for your model.
I plan on buying my friend his honda Civic on july 30th at 6pm. i have him getting together his list of dealership within 75 miles of the New york and the Tri-state area with his model and color. On that evening we will go down the honda list make our calls and secure a purchase for our targeted price Civic.
Preparation is the key for a faster transaction. Dealerships, names of all internet managers with numbers and emails is the plan for july 30th.

$24,283 is a good deal for an e-quote on an EX-L.
Did you move forward with that dealership?

your problem is your not fully understanding how the buying game works. keep on reading my post on how and when to buy. When you are ready to buy have your financing in place know your exact make and model, color. Then you buy the last 2 days, last day of the month with a target sale price for each dealership you call or visit. There is no reason to keep on asking dealership for a price. I have posted several detailed post on what price and how to get a good deal. Read them and write it on the pad with all your dealerships to contact. Next homework detail
You could call 100 dealers and will get pricing all over the map. These guys do this for a living if your not buying that moment or seem confused they will walk all over you and give you a half ass price. Why do you think the price is higher now than 4 months ago.. Your identified as a stupid buyer. Just like all the people who walk into dealerships without doing any research . So lets change that.
My suggestion to you is do not keep on posting in hear about pricing ..just read the posts.
Make a list of the 30 nearest dealerships by your house. Call each one and ask the phone person in every place the name,number, and email of every internet manager.. when your list is complete keep on reviewing this board to see if there are dealerships in your area that people are recommending to buy. If you read about more dealerships in here call up dealership and get the internet managers info.. Next
When you are ready to buy you start to make all your calls and visit your targeted dealerships on the 2 to last day / last day of the month and not before with your targeted price to buy. when you decide what month your ready we can discuss a target price. Until then sit back and read these postings and jot down any info that may help you when your ready to buy.
I tried to by my Accord in jan for 1000 below invoice on the last 2 days.
i could not pull the trigger so my next target date was end of Feb, were i made my deal.
If Feb did not pan out i would of bought at the end of March. but regardless i was buying in March for market price and not so much best price.

From this post I sense that you do not suggest buying at the end of July. Do you think waiting until end of August/September is better?

I made about 10 phone calls to dealers in Michigan and made my offer for 1300 below invoice with destination (for LX CVT, invoice plus destination = 21,369), so my offer is 21369 - 1300=20,069. However, no dealer accepts that and some even told me the lowest they can offer is 21,369. So i don't know if i should raise my offer?

Hello, I am also looking for a 2013 Honda Accord Ex 4-cylinder. With the price of $24,500, I assumed that does not include interests right? My credit is good enough for a %1.9 APR for 60 months. If it does not include interest can you tell me how much you paid after interest (total cost: down payment and monthly payments?) Thank in advance.

Do not raise your asking price until late afternoon on july, 31. If you want to buy this month, make a deal with your best offer and closest dealer on july 31th at night time.
This is when the real Negotiation starts on the last 2 days, last day of the month . Hold your ground. You already have 10 dealerships with a target price. Late tommorrow afternoon around 5pm,either email or call back those 10 dealerships and ask if they want your business at 1300 below invoice for the sale . You might get a call from one of your target dealership with yes we can. Tell each dealership tomm you plan on buying on the 31th.
I would call a few more New dealerships tomm with your same target price to buy leaving your number and email if they wont meet your price. Do not buy unless you get your price. Buy the last day of this month Let July 30th play out all day.
Dealerships that have your make model and color will be more inclined to meet your targeted price before Aug 1, Dealers that do not have your car on there lots might not want to give you your price. Target all the dealerships that you already called with your model for same target price 1st tomm night.
If all your called dealerships will only go 1000 below invoice then make your best deal. You have recieved the best prices from your targeted area.
You have done a great job so far now try to close deal with your targeted price. I heard no mention of flex cash did you ask or know if dealers will give it to you for financing thru them. Thats another 500
On july 30th at 6pm i will help my friend buy a honda Civic. We will be calling about 40 dealerships with our target price for the sale tomm. Same rule applies if we do not get our target price we wait til july 31th and make our best deal.
Post your deal if you buy at the end of july.

I have to admit that the negotiation is soooo intimidating for me. Every dealer kept asking how I came up with the number or if any dealer made any offer.
Just got the first call back from a dealer for an OTD of 22,200 for LX CVT, is this a good call??

You will be getting call backs up til july 31 at night. let dealers come to you.
You buy at 1300 below invoice. plus any incentives/ rebates. Tell any dealer who asks........ you have several friends who purchased this same car for 1300 to 1500 below invoice these past two months. . Keep the focus and negotiation on your target price that is the only thing you want to discuss with any dealer. The more you talk stupid stuff with these dealers the more likely you will mess up and he will expose you. Especially a 1st time buyer.
1300 below dealers invoice is a good buying number for the end of july. Every dealership that calls you back let each one know 1300 gets it done. Mention the names of 2 other dealerships your waiting on for the sale that day. Play there game. Pit one dealer against the next. Dealership are calling you back to feel you out. Make each one think your closing the deal within hours. Make sure you get any flex cash if its avail thru financing car. This incentive gets subtracted from your agreed sale price.
Weymouth honda, and Herb Chambers in Boston hate each other i pitted one against the other to make it work in my favor. Get the 3 nearest dealerships involved and let them know your waiting on them every time a different dealer calls you back.
