I bought a new 2002 LX/MT at College Park Honda (Wash. D.C. area) last Thursday. The OTR (on-the-road) price was $19,325 with splash guards, floor mats, wheel locks and pinstripe. Also they included 3 year free oil changes. This translates in about $17,300 for the car (without destination). I negotiated with very nice salespeople - Amal and Ryan. This Monday an internet salesperson from Jim Coleman Honda contacted me (in 3 business days after I sent a request to StoneAge) with 17,220 for the same car + dealer installed options.

Honda has dropped rent Charge (money factor) from .0027 to .00152 on 2002 Accord leases. Got a quote in August on 2001 EXV6 and just leased a 2002 EXV6 . Saved around $ 60 monthly on a 36/12,000 lease by waiting. $ 343 monthly with $ 0 down ain't bad, you think?
#44 of 29579 CA - how much should I pay
Sep 20, 2001 (5:26 pm)
I'm in the market for a 2001 Honda Accord LX 4-cyn. I live in CA, in Orange County. How much do you think is a reasonable price to pay out the door with EVERYTHING (tax, licensing, reg.) included. I don't want to pay more than $19,500. Will dealerships think I'm crazy? I am buying an end of the year car....please advice.

I bought a 2002 Accord LX for $72 over invoice in Oklahoma.
I hear that California dealers are a little bit tougher to deal with.
Edmunds shows invoice at $17878 for a 2001 LX-4dr-Auto.
Chances are, a 2001 may have been on the lot for several months.
Obviously you'll take a hit on depreciation right away,
since the car is last year's model.
I'm pretty sure I could have offered $500 - $700 under invoice
for the 2001 on my dealer's lot and got it.
I would suggest that you start the bidding in that neighborhood.
Tag and tax costs are fixed, but when you get it financed,
the dealer can mess with the figures
and you won't know HOW much you are actually paying
for the car --- only the payment...
Perhaps it would be better if you negotiated the car price
BEFORE tag and tax, then have them re-figure
AFTER tag and tax are added.
GET IT IN WRITING, in any event !
If you don't like the deal, walk away !
I did on the first number they gave me.
They called me back 2-days later with a better offer...
Remember, the economy is in a slump and the dealers
will likely be more willing to negotiate than usual...
Best wishes for a good deal !

i paid 19207 for a 2002 accord SE with 2 yrs oil changes. how much did i overpay? it was like 21800 out the door.

Local dealer has SE's at $19,555. This includes Destination charge.
feyd, does your $19,207 include destination? If so, that would be about invoice. If not, then I think destination is $440, so it would be $19,647 compared to the local dealers $19,555. He says his prices are $316 over invoice.
Why do any of you people quote Out-The-Door (OTD) prices? Taxes and fees and license charges are different in every state, and this is a nationally read discussion area. OTD numbers just confuse the issue of price.

Actually i paid 19507 ples the dest charge. i also got 9500 trade in on a 2000 corolla CE. i think i couldve gotten a better deal, but it was late (12:30 am) and my wife and kids were with me. I wouldnt recommend this dealer- they dont give the best prices, even if you are moderately informed.
#49 of 29579 $16,988 before tax, etc on my 2001 Accord LX 4cyl automatic Sedan
Nov 01, 2001 (11:38 am)
We bought our 2001 Accord LX 4cyl automatic sedan in Sept 2001 for $16,988 before tax, registration, and other fees. The out the door price was around $18,500. We were at the dealership (Internet dept) for only 2 hours. No hassling, dealer, or headaches.
We bought the Honda Extra Care for $1800 which will be paid over 12 months. If we don't use the Extra Care when it expires, we get 100% of the $1800 back. I'm looking forward to getting $1800 back in 6 years or 100,000 miles.
I was upset that the car didn't even have floor mats. So I bought floor mats and mud guards from www.hondaacuraworld.com (tell them Oliver referred you, I shop there for our Integra too). After that, I bought an aftermarket alarm with remote trunk opener and tinted all the windows.
We plan on keeping this car for 20 years, so getting all the accessories now will be worth it in the long run.
#50 of 29579 Accord EX V6 - 01 or 02?
Nov 07, 2001 (4:34 am)
Hello all - last time I was on town hall was in 1999 when I was buying an 00 odyssey. I am now planning to upgrade our second car from a 98 civic to a new accord (EX V6) . Any differences between 01 and 02 model (other than the dealer cost being $430 higher). I don't believe there is any difference. Autobytel quoted me $500 over dealer cost for an 02. Any thoughts on what I could expect to pay for an 01. I live on Long island. Thanks for your help.
