I am in North Florida and one of the dealers I went to said I could order the 2014 in any color combo I wanted without a deposit. I did this before when I bought my Pilot.
In terms of pricing, I was given offered the 2013 price and the 2014 was only about $300 more.
I am torn between the 2013 and 2014 in that scenario. While some feel that the 2014 will hold value longer since it is newer, the 2013 gives you a heads start so to speak on low mileage.
I bought a 2011 Honda Pilot in April of 2010 because the demand was so high. Translation....my mileage seems very high for a 2011 even though it was purchased in 2010. So, I am debating whether to go this time for the 2014? Any thoughts?

It appears that the $500 Flex Cash option did not continue or increase after Sept 3rd, so now those who waited and lost do we go 2014?

I bought a EXL V-6 back in FEB. My out the door price which should not matter to you due to different state tax and dmv charges ran me 30k OTD.
Good luck with your deal. Say No to anything there selling in that back Office and you will be fine.

2014 model is a no brainer.... For 300 more dollars I'm sure the excess mileage with the 2014 will outweigh the depreciation value of a 2013 model. In 3 more months the 13 is considered a 1 yr old model.. and your 2014 model will be just brand new all yr long.. Higher mileage vehicles are still priced really good on these newer model Cars/ trucks.

" The Camry is one tough nut to outsell"
Yep, especially when they sell Camry's in HUGE quantities every year to the car rental companies. Honda has never done that and when it comes to holding resale values that is a good thing.
The auctions are packed with ex Toyota rentals when they dump them en masse after a couple of years.
Still great cars but rental sales have a tremendous impact on their numbers.
Unless a person likes a soft, mushy ride (and some do) the Accord has a much better feel to it especially when pushed hard.

"... In terms of pricing, I was given offered the 2013 price and the 2014 was only about $300 more..."
Are you referring to the sales price of the car?
MSRP for the 2013 EX with destination fee: $26,195
MSRP for 2014 EX with destination fee: $26,470
Which is a difference of $275.
What was the actual sales price of the car, if you do not mind posting it here?

MSRP of the 2013 EX-L with the $790 destination fee is $28,785.
You had mentioned that you were guaranteed a sales price of $24,248 through USAA, which includes the destination fee and a regional ad fee. If that is the case, that is savings of more than $4500.
Good luck getting the settlement and car shopping.

Blue and Cars12345,
Can I also use your reference to bargain with Prime? I would be happy to make the deal if they agree to the price what you guys negotiated to.
