Yes. Also mind of the numbers they do the calculation. Bring a calculator with you when you sign all the papers. Make sure that was what they put into their calculation. If you want to add options, negotiate with the salesman as a package. The OTD price is the most important. Spread a larger area in the state. In other words, get quotes from all cities in the state you live. Always ask for OTD price. Ask them to give you the OTD price in writing. When you get a lower price from one dealer, you bring it to the previous dealer to ask them to beat the price. If the dealer does, you bring it back to the dealer to negotiate with the earlier dealer to ask them to beat the price. You can also send more quote request to dealers in the area where the cheapest dealer is located. Say up-front, if I have a deal in another dealer, will you beat the price? by how much? You drive down the price until no dealer is willing to accept. Then you know you got a great deal. The key, spread wide of the net. Use internet, email. Do not call. Do not negotiate in person. Be patient. Give the negotiation a week of time.

Sound great. Just to tell you the price I and the other guy got is somewhat a miracle. 33K is not bad, is that after negotiation or just quote? If that is a quote from dealer, then I believe u can push down a few hundreds. Good luck.

Everything I have done so far is via email.... I have not talked to anyone on the phone yet. How did you push them down lower... Any advice would be great.

There are a few ways. I tried to walk in and low balling them a little, as they quote you OTD 33K. Try to low ball them, if you could reach 32.6K OTD, that great. I believe that price is pretty solid. But you should be ready to walk. In my case, the dealer I wanted to work with quote 33.5K, I brought in a quote from another saying 32.6K. They try to get it 32.839, but I walked away and 45 minutes later, the saleman called me and said he misunderstood his manager and agree with 32.6K. Good luck.

Not sure where in NC you live (I live in Charlotte), but I recently bought an Accord from Pohanka Honda in Fredricksburg saving thousands over local dealers. No tricks, hassles or unwanted accessories....a very quick and easy deal. Go to their website and ask for an internet quote. We made a road trip out of the purchase and even picked up the car on a Sunday. You may also want to get a quote from other N. Virginia Honda dealers like Tyson Corner Honda as they were very competitive as well. Good luck!

What was in the all weather package?
Can you give me a break down on what each part of your bill was?
What options were on it.
