Lease factor is .00075 and county tax is 6.5%. Residual comes to about 13770.
Now my question is, when you say I should be negotiating the price at 1000-1700 below invoice, does that mean that the OTD price should be 1000-1700 below invoice or the pre-tax and fee price should be 1000-1700 below invoice? I've talked with a few dealerships in the Akron/Cleveland area and visited three of them. The mistake I was making was that I was offering a trade and 2000 down. Should I not do that? Am I better off selling my old car privately? It's a salvage title 03 Hyundai Elantra. Some dealers offer as much as 1200 (which is the most I hope to get) and some like Jay Honda and Rick Roush Honda offer 200-300. Others offer nothing at all, and say they can't take it. Should I not offer anything AT ALL down? Thanks a lot.

Akron - based on your stated money factor and residual, if you were able to negotiate an 1800 below invoice deal, your zero due at signing, pre-tax, pre-doc fee, pre-DMV fee payment should be around 200 per month. This is based on a total cap cost of around 20k (including 595 inception fee). If you roll in your doc and DMV fees, add about 2.80 for each 100 of fees to your pre-tax payment. I'm not sure how Ohio handles the sales tax - you can calculate that yourself.
As far as the 03 Elantra is concerned, I recommend you sell it on the side and use the proceeds to pay a few of your lease payments - using it in the deal is complicating things for you.
Hope this info helps a little.

1k to 1700 below invoice is your target price to buy/ lease. Pre tax, title, doc fee, and dmv fee's added onto your agreed price .
Sell your car private. It will be one less headache and will help you get the best deal on your target price to lease.
Here are some dealerships in the Ohio area i used some years back that i found to be good dealerships
1- Hidy honda
3- Chesrown medina
5- Whitey's Automall
Mike Pruitt, and Park honda are in Akron not sure why i have them on file, maybe i called them but nothing was noted.

For anyone to tell whether you got a good deal or not, you need to provide the following details:
- MSRP of the EX-L Navi
- Invoice price (kbb.com is a good place to look that up)
- Sale price for the car without any options
- Cost of options and accessories purchased
- Any Flex Cash (usually $500 discount for financing through Honda)
PS: I'm curious, did you negotiate on the sale price?

Good idea for waiting till the end of the month.
I will be shopping the last week of this month for a deal on the EX-L.
#30493 of 32125 Purchased 2013 Honda Accord LX Manual
Aug 12, 2013 (8:00 am)
FYI, I just purchased a 2013 Honda Accord LX Manual for ~$19,350 (including dest fee and $500 flex cash discount) in Northern California. Car had to be finance to get the $500. OTD was ~$21400.
I think I could have had a better deal at the end of the month or when 2014 models come out, but I needed the car ASAP. Also, manuals are somewhat hard to get by so inventory could get even lower by then.

Blue, based on my observations on this board, no one needs to provide the invoice price, I think all the regular responders already know the invoice amounts for all the models. And you left out the doc fees that are essential to know. And why does MSRP matter at all?

My reasoning behind providing MSRP is that some responders leave out the destination fee. With regards to the invoice price, there was another responder who stated that his invoice price (from another state) for the same model car was different compared to mine here in MA. Maybe that's why websites such as truecar.com require that you enter a zip code.
With regards to TTL fees, since those vary by state, it does not really matter. Unless a responder is only providing the OTD price and asking whether they got a good deal or not, then doc fees, etc might help. Any information that will help someone on this board get a good deal on a car is welcome.
