#29553 of 29562 Honda accord black ex-l (Honda at Morgan Hill, CA, near Bay area)
May 19, 2013 (7:41 am)
Had established email communication with a whole bunch of dealers, morgan hill honda came with the best quote of 27493 otd (includes taxes,fees,destination.. should take honda finance) and i told them that i will buy it if they can stay true to this. I was also looking out for a black car and they did not have one in the inventory, but they did a dealer trade in to get me that.
We couldn't get to morgan Hill easily because on saturday there are no caltrains that stop at morgan hill . They were polite enough to ask if we needed to be picked up from somewhere. We told yes, so on the day they sent us a car to pick us up from san jose caltrain and what was more awesome was that it was the same black car that we were about to buy. I test drove the car for 25 miles to the dealership (i had already test driven it before, but i always planned to test drive the exact car that i would be buying. So this was really nice)
The dealership was really nice and well kept. Everybody was polite and courteous. No pushing of random options and addons. We had a talk with salesman who took us on a tour of the car and explained all the features to us.
There was a problem with their servers, so there was this huge delay. All the customers were queued up waiting for things to work. No angry rants from anyone, everyone seemed relaxed. We were actually offered lunch by the salesman for our trouble.
Then things did get sorted out, and we had to see the finance guy. He was pretty much to the point, he asked if we need any of the other options like extended warranty etc. we said no to all of them and he did not really care. We noticed that the price was inflated by $131 when it came to final bill. We got the salesman into the room and asked him what this was as we did not want to pay a single dollar more than 27493, he told me that it was tax difference from county that we were in (san mateo) to the one the dealership was in. We told him that we would still want to pay 27493 irrespective of any tax difference because he knew we were from outside this county when the deal was decided on the email and he got that done
So we got to go back to the car (which had been detailed and all sparkling) and the salesman took us to the nearby shell station made sure we got 1 full tank of gas and sent us home.
I am not sure if i could have gotten a better deal (None of the other bay area dealers even cared to respond to this quote) But i really liked my experience here!

Before I make this purchase, I was curious what others thought.
2013 Honda Accord Sport with leather 4cylinder
List price was arount $25k and they offered to sell for $22,800 which includes the destination fee. Only extra fees would be doc and tax. Financed through Honda they did say an extra $500 off may be available. I am located in NJ.
This offer seemed to be in the ball park of other dealers.

looks pretty good....I am on long island and was aiming to pay 22500 WITHOUT leather, but including fees (pre tax). I'd be interested to hear what others say.
If deal goes through as advertised, I'd like to know the dealer and salesperson. There will probably be a referral in it for you. Was hoping to buy locally, but if I can get a sport w/out leather for 22 before tax I may take the drive!

hey MJK - did you buy? How did it settle out?
Anybody else have thoughts around pricing for an accord sport?

I thought to get leather factory installed you had to step up to EX-L trim? What is the option for the leather on the sport called, is there a code to figure out inventory for Sport w/Leather?
Side question, what is the material on the standard sport, it is not leather, however I dont think it is regular cloth either, is that correct?

I actually never inquired as to whether or not leather was an option on the Sport Trim. Wasn't a priority for me. They have upgraded cloth as a standard - black. it is a step up from the LX material, but it is definitely cloth.
Have you gotten quotes on a Sport yet?

manly honda at Santa Rosa, ask for Tom or Jay. Both of them are very nice. Feel free to mention that you got the info from Min. Good luck!

No, I did not buy yet but will be getting other quotes the next few days. The sport comes with cloth, the leather was dealer installed. If I can recall correctly the cost to the dealer for this is approx., $1300. I've noticed that many dealerships have added leather to models besides just the Ex-L where is comes standard. Hopefully tomorrow I will have more information and prices.

Hey MJK - I just got a quote for 23500 on long island pre-tax NON-leather. Clearly not going in for this. I'm lining up a couple of other quotes so I can make a memorial day purchase on this thing. my email address is first name last name at yahoo no dots or spaces. If you could shoot me the name of your dealer and the sales person. If he is willng to part with a non leather version of the sport for 1500 less than the leather version, I may take a memorial day drive to jersey.
If anyone else in the NY/LI area can share with me some quotes they've recieved for a Sport (or price they paid) that would be super helpful. Hopefully there will be a referral fee in it for you as well. I'm looking to close this weekend.
