Thank you for the comment. As soon as purchasing the car at the price (I want to make sure), I will add the dealership info in another post.

I live in the NYC area as well and i'm also shopping for an EX CVT. I've just started contacting dealers through truecar and carwoo, but I would love to get some insight based on the research you've done already. Is there a dealership that you can recommend for me for a hassle free deal?
I'm looking to buy by March 31st.

Once you figured out your target buying price. Call as many dealerships on march 31 to see who will meet your price.
DO NOT BUY VEHICLE BEFORE MARCH,31. You will get best price and deal from these dealers on that day. Unless a dealer meets your price on the 30th..
1000 below invoice or lower is where your asking number should be. That you need to figure out.
Contact all high volume dealerships on march 30 to see where the market is for your model. Call these dealerships first... Tell each dealership you will buy that moment if they meet your asking price.
1-Weymouth , Herb Chambers, Bosch in M.A.. doc fee's 249 to 300
2-Price honda ...D.E..............299
3-Friendly.. N.Y..... DOC fee...75
4- New Rochelle.....doc..........75
Adjust your sale price to compensate dealers doc fee's.
New york price would be 1075 below invoice
M.A.. would be ..1249 and 1300 hundred below dealers invoice.
I would try calling these dealerships on march 31 for the sale
Hamillton, Autosport, Paul Miller in N.J
Paragon,Bay ridge,Hillside Honda in N.Y.
If you want to do some good research to help your end of the month sale. I would suggest calling every dealership mentioned plus others and ask each dealership the name and number or email of each dealerships Internet sales manager so you could contact directly on last days / day of the month. this avoids wasted time on purchase day
There are 2 poster who bought in N.Y that bought your model hopefully they will post dealership.

Brian, you keep posting "don't buy a car before March 31". Do you realize that is Easter Sunday and many if not most dealerships will be closed? Not to mention many people probably have family gatherings to attend and wouldn't be leaving the family Easter get together to go haggle at a dealership.

#28992 of 32174 Questions about getting an accord
Mar 19, 2013 (9:04 am)
Was hoping you could give me some guidance and maybe talk some sense to me.
I currently own a 2005 honda accord LX and i'm in the market for a new car. Honda's been fine but whenever i turn in a side street with 10-20 mph my tires start squeaking and on those loopy freeway on-ramps i feel if i go faster than 25 mph my car can flip.
Getting close to 30 yrs old i thought to myself, why not get a bmw before settling down to an accrd again and enjoy the turning without fearing that i'll flip over 25 mph? And as for all bmw, they should be leased. So i thought to myself, if i lease for 2/3 years, i'll be back at March 2015 or 2016 and I'll have to "buy a car" again at that time....
all this time while my wife's 2006 scion TC will be 10 yrs old and if i buy a new accord at that time, pay for it 60 months her TC will be 15-16 years before she can get a new car lol...
So obviously the "logical and sane" choice would be to buy an accord now, get a 4 or 5 yr payment plan on it, then her scion would be roughly 11 yrs old and would be ok to get her a car at that time (instead of 16yrs old)
But my concern is: "but i've never really driven a bmw before and like to reward myself and have the freakin wheels not squeel and have nice corner turning!"
So i ask you, knowledgeable Edmunds members, what should i do? Should i get a EX-L v6 or something that will have the same driving experience as the bmw? or bmw too far above it?
Note: No 2 door/coupe allowed, No accesories really needed (no nav/moonroof/weird crap)
Because if getting a decked out honda will giving me the same driving exp as the bmw 328i base series, i might as well get the honda with lower price!
I know the 328i is a 4 cylinder engine, and so does the LX accord / lower end EX, would honda's v4 = bmw's v4? am i dreaming again?
Please help a fellow honda owner out!
lastly, is 2013's accord worth getting (first model of new cycle) or should i let them work out kinks and get the 2014 since it's march already??
Again, i sat the new honda last week and inside is nice! not knocking that, but want to know about the driving exp.

Your air pressure is low or you have shitty tires on your car. thats question 1.
Everything else is how much you want to spend and preference. Bmw is a tighter ride, better handling and will bounce around alot in the 328. Your a young man you may like that kind of ride. 328 is small
If your starting a family save your money buy the new accord. Otherwise step up to the 5 series bmw better all around.

I thought "better handling" = no squealing or no "feels like tipping/flipper over"?
But you're saying if i get better wheels i would have no squealing?
What about the ability to handle going on those circular free way on-ramps faster than "big-rig speed"? without feeling tipped over? Is that a bmw advantage?
can you comment on the 2013 vs 2014 choice? is there a need to avoid the first year of the model?
can anyone also comment on the equivalent on engine from the 2.0-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine on the bmw?? the Honda v4? Honda v6?

The 6-speed gearbox is pretty great. Gates are clear and the throws are a good length. The stick itself is a little small, but I'm growing to like it quite a bit, actually.
The gearbox also offers some resistance if you try to put it in 1st at speeds higher than 20 mph, which I used to do on approach to something like a stop sign (clutch down, of course). This is probably a safety feature/quirk, but interesting nevertheless.
My previous MT car was a 5-speed VW Golf TDI which had "grabby" brakes and a gearbox with a very precise biting point. Fun to drive, though!
The clutch on the 2013 Accord Sport felt a little ambiguous at first (hard to tell the exact biting point), but I'm getting used to it now: it has a more consistent feel throughout the travel of the pedal. This also makes it very forgiving and means you can get away with being quite sloppy with your changes if that's your thing. Hill start assist also helps prevent the car from stalling if you don't give it enough gas.
I'm very happy with the manual transmission anyway!
