With new 10th Gen 2018 Honda Accords purchases and deposits being made, it would be helpful for potential buyers to share the best price they got.

Please use the guideline listed below.

  • 1. Your city or region and/or dealer location
  • 2. Trim level purchased and identification of options/accessories purchased (AWD? SE? Touring? Trailer hitch? Etc.)
  • 3. Your price paid
  • 4. Sticker price (MSRP) (or discount you received from MSRP) including the options/accessories included in your price paid
  • 5. Invoice price comparison (if you know it)
  • 6. Any other details that you think would be useful to others, such as doc. fees paid and dealer experiences/recommendations.

Out-the-Door (OTD) price has little-to-no meaning to others reading here, especially without the context of taxes and accessories.

**Example / Actual prices may vary

Toledo, Ohio
2018 Accord SE Msrp $38165.00
Saving $2000.00
Sales price $36165.00
dealer fee $449.00
Taxable amount $36614.00 X 6.25%
Sales tax $2288.37
Reg, title, new plates $170.00 if you transfer plates it will be less $35.00
out the door price $39072.37
Pictures or invoices are welcome!

Hope this helps :)

Very pleased with the purchasing experience at Sanford Honda. I sent identical offers to buy immediately to the three dealerships nearby with a black Sport 2.0T/MT6 in stock. These guys had the low bid OTD by about $200. (As such, I couldn't really fight them on the doc fee.) Guys were friendly, professional, no attempts at an upsell on warranty or otherwise. I was in and out in less than 90 minutes.

Here's a helpful link. Car Buying Strategies. During the July Summer Sale, I got my 2.0T at $250 below dealer cost. I had a $900 lower offer but they wanted $500 less for my trade and added $300 for etching and wheel locks. After taxes my net was lower and I found that wheel locks (never cared for them) were included anyway. I got a Honda 6/60/0 ded extended from Saccucci which the dealers won't sell you unless you go looking for it. They usually sell aftermarket which is inferior and non-refundable (and therefore a moneymaker). I plugged the price and trade numbers into a little spreadsheet calculator and it spits out the out-the-door price. It's amazing that none of the dealerships would give me an out the door price over email. It helps to be prepared!

There are Several Taxes on Sales in TN , which Added Up to $1940.00
They all have Crazy Fee's - which some will Wave and Other won't - might want to just Move On ..in that Area of Disagreement .. to another Dealer . .

They all apply Big Paint Protection - BS - and Other Scams - as Far as I care as most of the Time - None of those Items Have Been Done !
Make them Show You the Products they Used and Ask for the Warranty on those Products , etc and get Right Up there little Pooper about that Crap
as it can Add up to $1700.00 Bucks and Not even Include Weather Mats , HAA !

I think it would also be helpful to see what everyone is paying for insurance monthly (with age, deductible, company, if you have a family plan etc) since it's often an after thought. :)
There are too many variables when quoting auto insurance. It is always best to seek out competitive quotes for your area and coverage needs. There is no one size fits all. Insurance company’s customer service is always important if a claim is filed.

I recently requoted my auto insurance after making at least six inquiries. I was able to reduce my premium cost buy $300 per year with identical coverages. The coverage is with a national auto insurance company with a good reputation in my area for service when needed.
