I'm from Santa Clarita, so I was negotiating with dealerships north from the Palmdale/Lancaster to south San Fernando Valley.
I bought mine from Palmdale since they only had the color exterior on Sport trim level left. Great service and a killer deal!
I would highly suggest checking out Galpin Honda in San Fernando, speak ONLY to Chris S. he's the Internet Manager and was very helpful and I was close to buying from him but the color I wanted was sold literally a few hours after I left the dealership to sleep on the price (was going to buy the next morning lol)
I would ABSOLUTELY AVOID AutoNation Honda in Valencia. Had such a bad experience that I'm drafting a huge letter about the horrible service I received.
If you do end up going to Galpin Honda in San Fernando just tell Chris S, Enrique "The Marine" referred you to him. Maybe could get a free oil change = WIN-WIN! Lol

That was just the car price of 2013 exl. If you finance with Honda Finance you may get $500 flex cash off on your payment.

I also wanted to add to make sure that dealerships list all the fees associated with the purchase. If they are not providing you with the info, ask by emailing or calling them and if you are still not getting any clear information move on to the next dealership.
Are you going to wait till the end of the month to purchase or are you going to pull the trigger sooner if you get a good deal on the 2014 model?

Thanks, Enrique. I'll put notes next to those 2 dealerships. I had bad experiences with a few places in the Valley a few years ago, but things do change. I'll share my experiences after I buy this car.
If I do go with Galpin, I'll definitely mention "The Marine."

I see that many people are finding V4 powered Accords. Here is my advice; If you happen to come across a V4 powered Accord, offer the dealer $50,000 OVER their asking price. The V4 engines were not supposed to be released to the public. In fact, Honda claims that they stopped making them about 15 years ago.
I can tell you one thing, once you drive a V4 powered Honda, you will never want a V6, or an I4. The 1983 (yes, 30 years odl by now!!!) Honda Magna that I had the pleasure of owning with a 6 spd sequential transmission (yup, seuqntial 6 spd in 1983!!!) went from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds!!!!! New cars like Viper, Corvette, and Porsche are just getting into this 3 seocnds to 60 realm. Honda was there 30 years ago!!!!
To this day, I still regret selling it. Honda does not make them anymore, and ones in good condition are selling well above their 1983 sticker price.
So, if you see a V4 powered Accord, just get it. You will not regret.

Good luck and let us know what sales numbers you receive from dealerships.
#31168 of 32228 How to calculate total OTD price
Sep 16, 2013 (5:58 am)
Assume the accord price with destination is $23,100 includes the destination. I live a NYC and I assume either I buy from NY/NJ/CT I still have to pay 8.875% sales tax on the $23,100. What about the other doc fees, dmv, ... etc. Anyone knows thebreak down?
I know doc fees in NY is cap at $75 and NJ is no limit from $300 to $500.
I see many posts indicate the OTC price is what we care about and I agree. Does anyone know what are the typical DMV & other fees charge by NY or NJ dealer.

Yes, OTD is important, after all, that's what's coming out of your pocket. But it is only comparable with others in your county of residence. You can't control the govt related fees like DMV and sales tax so knowing what the DMV fees for someone living in NYC will only help you figure out in advance the total cost of the car once you've negotiated the deal. Your only goal right now is to minimize the total amount that the dealer will be getting, namely the "sell" price of the car plus the dealers doc fees. That's how you will be minimizing that OTD amount.
