I was so close to getting a Camry but I'm so happy I did not. One thing I love about the accord is when I get a text and the car reads it to me! Also, I did not care for the navi version of either vehicle and choose to stick with my cell (but I am considering a newer Garmin with lifetime map upgrades and hands free navigation). The interior of the Camry was weak in comparison to the accord and I though the seats in the camera were not as comfortable. Finally, since I got a zero % financing for 60 mos on the accord with an OTD price of $29k, the Camry could not come close. Accord EX-L V6 (winner).

Was the 0% through Honda or a credit union? Is it something u specially qualified due to being a college graduate or military? Or they just gave it to u due to your good credit? Let me know how u got it because I don't think that anybody else got such a low financing so far, thanks.

I bought the Nuvi 2555LMT (lifetime Maps and Traffic). It was under $200. I'm a longtime Garmin user (this would be my third unit), and there are some things to remember:
1) I don't care about bluetooth because my phone goes to my car now;
2) I DON'T use the Garmin for traffic. I mean, it comes on, but I don't trust it. Everyone within the sound of my voice should go download WAZE for their phone. You see actual people actually on the roads and how fast they're going. Garmin traffic doesn't stand a chance. So had this unit not had traffic, I wouldn't have cared.
3) This particular unit doesn't have voice control. It's not something I want.
I bought it due to its large screen (I'm not getting any younger), and the "auto-fill-in" of addresses.

All good points
My 4 garmins have the voice command and the 5' screen. The Garmin blows away the Nav in my X-5. The back up camera is nice feature in the truck but not a selling point with me. The only reason i bought truck with Nav system was Price and only X5 with Color choice from dealer.

You should consider Weymouth honda in M.A. there right in your back yard. maybe a 1 hour car ride.
Herb Chambers is also high volume and has 4 locations thru out M.A.

I am military but this was not a factor for the 0% financing. Also my credit is good and I actually was pre-approved for the vehicle 1.99% using my bank. I kept haggling with the sales rep over the price and he would not budge on giving me an OTD price of $28,500 (no taxes for me being military and a Washington resident). When he asked if I would take 0% finance for 60 mos for $29K through Honda Financing I instantly agreed (savings of about $1,500).
The best part after I agreed to Accord price was when I offered my trade-in, which originally I told him I was not. It was a 07 Jetta I paid $8k for 3 years ago with a trade in value of $5k (there was no way it was worth close to that with the transmission problems I was having). I pushed to make the deal that I needed $6K (owed $4K) which he finally agreed after I walked out the door and he called me while I was on my way home.
I turned around, signed the papers 1030pm on a saturday night and financed the $27K for 60 mos with a straight principle payment of $450 a month. No extended warranty or Gap insurance. Came with all the standard options, aquapel, tire lock, tinted windows, ect. Accord EX-L V6 no Navi. overall I'm very happy about the deal.

$26,985 OTD, That's a good deal for an I4. Did that include a trade-in for that price or was that just for the vehicle?

Michael and Brian you both have some great input. Since the GPS is for the wife, I'm going to see if she likes the voice control or not. The lifetime map alone is worth the investment. Thanks.

When comparing Camry sales to Accord sales, it has to be remembered that Toyota sells huge qualities of Camrys to the rental car companies and Honda does not.
These cars are dumped en masse at the auctions around 18 months later which really hurts the resale vcalues compared to Hondas.
This really inflates Toyota's sales numbers.
