#27905 of 29563 Value of 2 accidents on CarFax?
Jan 01, 2013 (2:05 pm)
Found a 2010 Honda Accord I like with low mileage. CarFax shows 2 accidents, one involving right rear impact, the other involving front impact with airbag deploying. Car is certified pre-owned, so dealer says the accidents must be so minor that there's no structural damage.
Would you trust the dealer on this, or would you be concerned with a safety problem (and, if so, how would you find out if there's a safety problem)? Assuming no safety problem, how much price reduction is this worth?

Walk away is it worth saving a few bucks now to have problems down the road. why do you think prior party got rid of a 2yr old vehicle. I would not trust any dealer on this matter unless i could read the actual accident reports this vehicle was in and the extend of the damaged it caused.. Walk Away

Looking at the current market and factoring in how long the new 2013 Honda Accord has been on the market, you should be able to get a new 2013 Honda Accord LX automatic for under $23,000; that is including TTL. In my opinion, 2013 Accord gives you the most equipment standard for your money.

I would walk away, unless the accidents were in the early days of car ownership and whoever had the car still kept it for another 2-3 years. Definitely would test drive the car, which I have done before and confirmed nothing wrong with car involved in accident. Folks sometime get into a fender bender and you still get written up as accident, although not worth it.
I am curious to see how much you're saving though? Have you looked into a brand new 2012 with zero miles where you would get full 3 years warrant, there are still a few around? That's what I got right before 2013 was out, SE version.
Best of luck, Julian

This wasn't a Fender Bender........ Front Airbag Deployed. Unless you could read the actual reports with the extent of damages i would stay away. The warranty on that vehicle will expire this year..

I am also in the market for a 2013 ex i4. Which dealership did you get yours from? Since you are also in socal, I assume the TTL is 11%, so that your before tax price is 23500? It is a pretty good price at this moment.

black w/black interior - sedan
$29,494 (includes destination fee)
$399 conveyance fee
($199 window etching - waived)
6% sales tax
= $31,686.58 OTD + whatever it will cost for tags in MD
Is that a good deal? Used the Weymouth Honda quote to get one dealership to match it.. went to another dealership to have them beat it.. went back to the original dealership and they knocked theirs down a little bit more (didn't actually beat the second dealership.. but it was only a difference of $100 so we went with the original guy we worked with).. also came with a lifetime powertrain warranty that we wouldn't have received from the second dealership..
This was in CT -- 6% sales tax b/c car will be registered in MD

I am shopping for an EX Souther Cal also but not willing to purchase unless there is a good price. I live in Riverside County.
I requested quote all the dealers around me. Corona give me the best price for OTD (few gave lower price but either their OTD were higher or they not willing to give me OTD unless coming in). Requested Corona two times around Christmas and yesterday both got $23,269 (car + destination). OTDs were different, around 25440 first one, 25600 second one. Not sure what system they use to calculate and what if I come in). Consumer Report Car Buying Price in my area for the EX is around $23537.
Hope that helps somewhat. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. Now I have a baseline. Tax varies by counties. But in the end, it depends on where you live. And as of yesterday, the State sales tax just went up 0.25%.
