It appears on truecar.com that the price difference of 2013 vs 2014 is only 500 more for the latter. That being so, for my offer, it should be possible to get about 1000 off the price or closer to 38385 OTD, here it is again

The prices on truecar aren't representative of the deals people have been getting in the past month or two. Before I bought, i went through the last 15 to 20 pages of this thread and made a spreadsheet of prices people actually paid. For the 2013 FWD Tech, in my spreadsheet i recorded a $34,400; $33,000; $34000; $33,500; $33,800; $34,200; and a $34159. These were all before TTL. One dealer told me they had an additional $2000 rebate from the manufacturer to clear out the 2013s.

by the way, what kind of gas are you guys putting in the car?
I have been told mid grade (89) is okay but some people say nothing but premium (92+)
Jun 07, 2013 (3:48 am)
I have been putting in premium because that is recommended (but not listed as required) in the manual, but many put regular (87) in and claim they don't notice a difference in HP or any engine knocking. It's the same engine as in the Accord, and that uses Regular. I just want to go by the manual recommendation.

1) I wouldn't depend on my ears to determine if low-octane fuel is damaging my car..
2) Same engine might not be tuned the same way... higher compression (for more power) needs higher octane..
3) Like you... I trust the engineers more than the guy who wants to save $3/week on gas... while risking a $10K engine in his vehicle..

1. You're right, however the manual states anything 87 or higher will not cause engine damage, but might cause reduced performance. My point was people who have been using it haven't noticed the reduced performance part.
2. Same engine, same HP (+-2), same torque, same compression ratio.
3. Agreed, i want to ensure that i'm doing everything i can to ensure the longevity of the engine, planning on holding onto the car for a while.

If the two engines have the same specs, but achieve those specs with different octane requirements, then something is different about them...
