DTC PO 304, 305, & 306 showed up again. Dealership informed me about a recent service bulletin related to Soto et.v. American Honda Motor Co. Inc., Case No. 3:12-cv-1377-SI (N.D. Cal.) which extent warranty on the power train on all 2008-12 Accord V6 A/T to 8 years with unlimited mileage from the original date of purchase. The Service Bulletin number is 13-078. I left my car at the dealership and they ... Read More
On a recent 180 mile highway trip we got 37 mpg in our 2013 Accord 4 cvt going c. 70 mph with 4 people, a dog, and luggage. Pretty good. The dealer who sold me the car gave me the 1st oil change free, which I just claimed. Our 2008 Accord we got from the mega dealer in town, while the 2013 was from the much smaller dealer who offered a ... Read More
Brief update on my Accord Sport as I come up on five months of ownership. I still turn and look as I walk away from it in parking lots. The exterior details of the Sport continue to impress. The wider tires give it a nice stance. The wheel design is attractive, and the painted gray really hides brake dust well. The subtle lip spoiler and dual exhaust give it a pretty ... Read More
Built a 2014 Accord Sedan EX-L V6 with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, added on remote start and back up camera/sensor thingy. My dealer came back and said that with tax title and license it would be 33,895.81. On the honda website it gave me a price of 33,927. When I asked why only the small difference they said it included labor for the remote start and back up sensor. To ... Read More
Having owned Honda Accords since 1981, and most receently a 1997 Accord V6, a 2000 Accord V6, and a 2004 V6 Coupe, we bought a 2008 V6 with VCM with great confidence in December 2007. In early 2011, with only 28,000 miles on it, all hell broke loose on a trip from NYC to our son's house in NJ. first the check engine light came on - I stopped and checked ... Read More
I am looking for comments. My 2005 Accord hybrid with only 31,000 miles on it has been acting very strange lately. The Honda shop told me that I probably needed a new battery pack, but the IMA was given a “reinitialization” to see if that would solve the problem. Since then I have been watching the battery report on the dashboard very closely. The Engine icon is on and the IMA ... Read More
I took my 2008 Accord with 15,000 miles to a local dealership for a complimentary oil change on 4/16/10. I got a call from the service advisor informing me that my rear pads and rotors were disintegrated. He informed me of the service bulletin from Honda informing of the brake problem. I inquired about the cost of the repairs wich was $467 for pads, rotors and labor. The advisor offerred a ... Read More
The epa has a 2 mpg difference between the Sonata and the Accord, which admittedly isn't huge, but some independent tests seem to find something similar. For instance, this AutoGuide comparison had the Sonata getting 27.4 mpg while the Accord got 29.8, a difference of slightly more than 2 mpg. We actually did hit 40 once on a hwy trip with the CVT Accord, and so I think it does still ... Read More
On a recent 100+ mi hwy trip in our 2013 Accord CVT at c. 65-72 mph we got 39 mpg. If we had been driving our 2008 Accord on this trip we would have gotten more like 30 mpg. The new generation of midsize cars from Nissan, Honda and Mazda are getting c. 20% better hwy mpg than the previous generation. I assume that when the new generation of Sonata and ... Read More
But to your point, Honda did eventually live up to it.... You are giving Honda too much credit. The ONLY reason Honda took care of the transmissions (they didn't fix them, but extended the warranty) was due to a class action lawsuit. That seems to be the same thing for their 2008-2012 accord brake issues, too. Instead of "living up to it" they faced another class action lawsuit and now are ... Read More
That's a tough call. Is it a 'demo' (does it have any miles on it)? A 2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe with Navigation has a Dealer Retail Value of $27,279 ('Outstanding' Condition and '0' miles). The Edmunds TMV price for a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe with Navigation is $28,210 (MSRP is $31,825). The I'd shoot for $27,000 (start at $26,500 even). I wouldn't pay much over $27k because ...

One day after making this deal, I feel like I didn't do as well as I should have. Honestly, I didn't do any negotiating, so I think it's partly my fault. Edmunds-2009 EX-L w/NAV 26,593 (invoice w/ dest)- $1,000 incentive = $25,593. I got a 2008 EX-L w/NAV (BLACK ON BLACK) = $24,000 I'm sure I could have done something, but I didn't move. The price got me in the door ... Read More
I just was quoted from two dealerships in NJ for a Honda EX_L V6 with Nav Both $26,600... I assume that is not including destination as they always try to throw that in... I got one dealership to "agree" over the phone to $26,000. Also, 3.9% financing for 60 mo. Anyone have any experience with a Accord ccessories? This site is extremely helpful, especially when I purchased my 2008 MDX. The ... Read More
Hubert Vester Honda in Wilson, NC. The internet sales manager is Janel Buckingham. The MSRP for this EX-L V6 Auto sedan is is $29,225. I hope this helps.
DONE! I just bought a Certified Used 2008 Honda Accord EXL V6 Navigation Sedan (Silver with black leather interior), 19k miles, Certified Honda Used...$22,800 + TTL. :) The car is rock solid, looks great, and is huge and luxurious. It feels as good as any Lexus or Acura I've ever been in. I traded in my 2003 ML320 and they matched my Carmax appraisal from 2 weeks ago. This offered some ... Read More
I am looking to buy a 1 year old 2008 Accord EXL V6 w/ Navi (Sedan). I have seen some listed online for ~$23-24k + TTL with around 15,000 miles. Given the poor economy and bad automotive market, I have offered lowball offers of $20k then $21k (OTD price)...got rejected. What do you think should be the final, best out the door price? Also, how about if it is a "Certified ... Read More
"Sure, prices may have gone up, but who pays the full msrp anyway?" While your statement is true, higher MSRP's equal higer invoice and higher net-net cost, which in turn, effects a higher consumer price in the end. Grant it, it may just be a couple of hundred but that is still a couple of hundred. I am still trying to figure out why Honda raised the prices of the 2009's ... Read More
"Second, my greatest concern at this moment is that the dealership is telling me that all of a sudden (in the midst of negotiations) the 2009 Accords increased in price as of December 11, 2008 and that there was a $250 ad fee." Honda did indeed raise the prices on all Accords across the board (it would have been nice if someone told me!!!). For example, Edmunds still shows the MSRP ... Read More
Hi: It appears from your username that you are a Honda dealer. While I appreciate the fact that you took the time to write, there are a couple of discrepencies in your statements. First, Edmunds base invoice for a 2009 Accord LX is $19,553, not $20,223. Therefore, if you subtract the $750 marketing support, the total that I was asking was $18,810 (rounded up-actually it is $18,803). You are correct that ... Read More
Thanks for your post! The latest I am being told by the dealer is that the accord's pricing has gone up. This is what I was e-mailed after telling them that I wanted to pay invoice minus the 750 marketing support (or $18810): 2009 Honda Accord LX Sedan automatic *New prices as of Dec 11 2008 MSRP $22375 Dealer Cost $ 20608 (includes $250 advertising fund that ALL dealers on Long ...

Actually a cars value to a dealership does change. If a dealer was stuck with a car long enough they would evenutally have to write down the value of that inventory on their books. When the car community talks about depreciation they are referring to a decline in market value of the car. A 2008 Accord that is still sitting on a dealer lot has clearly had a decline in market ...

I just purchased a Silver 2009 Honda Accord LX-P with automatic transmission from Precision Honda in Jasper, AL for $21,535.45 OTD. Not sure if this is a good price compared to the national average, but it was the best price I could get on the last selling day of 2008, or at least according to the dealer. They threw in front and rear mudguards no charge. It looks like I got ... Read More

I don't know who in So. CA you got your price from, but try Penske Honda in Ontario. When I got my 2008 EXL V6, they beat everyone else by a mile. I don't agree that dealers won't give quotes. I emailed 6 local dealers and got very quick replies from them all. In a big metropolitan area like LA, they know they have to give the best price right up ... Read More
You've got it right: you should buy something else. And you're also right that it's too bad Honda lost a customer. I special ordered a 2008 Accord EXL navi with the manual trans in white. At that time you could get all colors and virtually all trim levels in a manual. That day is gone, which is too bad, but since it is gone and will almost certainly never come back ... Read More
just FYI, one of our members bought a brand new 08 Accord LX-P in July for 19400 (12 miles), and now should be cheaper if you could still find leftovers. 19884 for a car with 6000 mile is not a good deal.
Found a Honda Accord LX-P 2008 in Peoria, IL for an internet price of $19,884. The car has almost 6000 miles on it and was used as a demo car. Should I ask the dealer to come down on the price or is this a good price for a car with this many miles?
I just bought a clearance model 2008 Accord EX sedan w/auto trans for $180 below invoice. I had specifically waited until Honda promoted their 2008 model clearance sale, and then waited another 3 weeks before I started soliciting online bids through Edmunds from local fleet managers. The offers were predictable with the highest offer (about $270 over invoice) coming from the dominant Honda dealership in my area. The dealership I finally ... Read More
I dont know what the EX-L are going for. But when I was shopping for my V6 coupe my budget was 28k out the door..

Funny thing is that a week later I was back at the same ... Read More
$300 for the dealer processing fee is obscene. I’m in the market for the same exact Accord you are and I live in MD. Hersons in Rockville and Jim Coleman Honda charge only $100 for DP. Did you already ask the internet associates for a straight on-the-road quote? If all else fails try not to pay an OTR price that’s higher than the MSRP. If you are then you are most ... Read More
Hi, I just went to a dealer yesterday and they quoted me the best thing they could do was $24,800 plus TTL. I was looking at more around 25K - 25.5K out the door. They pretty much laughed at me and said that was impossible. I'm in the NJ/NY area, do you think my offer was too low? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
CV, I haven't posted is while but i got my 08 4dr EX L V6 w/nav Basque red with splash guards/ window tint/ in Tempe AZ for $27900 ish.

I found it very easy to get the dealers to give email quotes throughout So. CA, and you can do way better than Carsdirect! I'm in the market for the same car, 2008 Accord Sedan EXL V6 w/o Navi....

If some one in Maryland want to buy a car, I have a $100 off referral for this dealer: Jim Coleman. No matter which brand you buy from this dealer, no matter what price you get , this 100 off can be put on top of your price. Send me a message if you need this referral.
ltaze, It's a 4 cyl model, NOT a V6. Sorry for the confusion. but for V6, the best OTD i got is 26,630.65 from Maroone Honda at Miami. I have not gone there yet, so I think there is still some room for the price. Good Luck.
Waterbump, I'm in Miami (Cape Coral is about a 2 hr drive for me), but I have to know, are you saying you were quoted the EX-L v6 for 24,500 OTD or was it the 4 cyl model? Your quote includes tax, tag, fees, and the whole bag of charges they stick you with? Since I haven't bought yet and I am between this car and the Camry, I am still ... Read More

lordy, I am in cape corel, fl. I am also looking for EX-L sedan. Maybe we can share the information. I find a better price at Naples but w/o Lifetime Powertain Warranty, Honda Protection Package and AutoButler. It's 24,500 OTD. Which dealership you talking to ?
I got a quote from Willet honda, atlanta, GA as follows: Accord LX auto sedan 2008: $18800 OTD price with doc fee & tax (6%): $20500 Do you think it is a reasonable one? In addition, they told me that the same model with 2009 marked on it will cost additional $1000 on top of that. I you were me, what will be your choice? buy 2009 by paying $1000 more ... Read More
Thanks for the amazing information. I'm looking for a 2008 Honda Accord EX-L. The best deal i got is $25,590(Out the door price) w/ Lifetime Powertain Warranty, Honda Protection Package and AutoButler (paint protection). Is this a good deal or do you think, I can get something better. I'm in Tampa, FL
Couldn't disagree with you more. The small offset was developed because of the significant amount of serious injuries/deaths involving frontal collisions despite the fact that just about every car was acing the moderate overlap and frontal crash tests. Instead of mandatory requirements, we allow automakers to use their own judgment in regards to how well they want to do on these test. The public unfortunately doesn't factor these tests or HLDI ...

I've been looking at the 2008 Accord Coupe since early July 08 when I decided I was serious about getting a new car, and the other night I finally took the plunge.

The quote out the door was 30,400.00. I told the salesman I would take it. Cash right then. After signing the papers he comes back and says there's a problem. They gave me a quote on a 2008.

Camry You are in a better position if you don't care whether you get an Accord or a Camry, you can then focus on the best deal you can find.
Hi There, I live in the Columbia, SC area and I was looking into purchasing a Honda Accord ( or Toyota Camry). I just want the plain jane LX and all I care about are the basics (air, cd, etc). Do you think it would be unreasonable for me to start bidding at $17000 ? I would like to purchase one for $18,500 out the door. Thanks for any input.
The 09's are already on the Honda web site, and I'm sure shipping as we speak. I checked the two cars I was looking at, A V6 Coupe and a V6 EXL Sedan and both of them went up $495. I would say you better deal at this point is an 08.
Just a thought, I do want to get a 08 Accord. Do i need to get one right now to save the 1.9 % low rate or wait till new 09 Honda accord released ? Which will be a better deal ?
I would read the fine print on that warranty. This isn't a warranty being offered by Honda and there are probably a lot of stipulations. Nothing is ever free.
Boch Honda in Norwood Mass is advertising all EX-L sedans with an MSRP of $26,495 for $22,388. Seems like a great price, should I beware of these guys ??
You got responses in the 2008 Honda Accord Maintenance and Repair forum (in case ya missed 'em ;)); this forum is for pricing info.
You lease it pretty expensive. If I were you I would try best to buy it. It's best for long term financially. I am able to obtain a car loan @ 4.9% or less fix term for 3 - 6 years. Finally I will pay only some $1K for interest during 3 or 4 years yet I got a top '08 Accord V6 EX-L w/ Nav w/ all bells & whistles. ... Read More
THEGRADUATE , please help me with this:-- I am looking at buying one of them - this is what I know about the major diffrences are:-- 1) EX is more HP - 190 than LX-P - 177 HP but that hardly matters I guess.

FWIW, I bought an Accord EX auto (2008) for $21,550 plus tax but including transportation on July 16 from Curry Honda in Chicopee, MA. The only optional equipment it had was wheel locks. It's a great car! Good luck!
It matters because: 1) It has an impact on the pricing decisions made by buyers and sellers which affects the prevailing 'MARKET'. 2) Knowledge is power and informed, reasonable buyers make better decisions that tend to help them save money. People who read this forum are trying to learn something about pricing and buying new Honda Accords in order to save some money, presumably, on a new Honda Accord. The title ... Read More
nvbanker: Have you done a test drive in the new 2013 Accord or new 2013 Civic? You're right that before this model year Hondas have been noisy. But amazingly, 20 years of complaints about this finally got through to Honda. Result: the 2013 Accord and Civic are much quieter. My 2013 Accord is much quieter than my 2008 Accord.
You are starting to sound like me now. Let me share something with you, my fellow Honda person. They don't believe you and they never will. They think there is "secret" money that we get from some place. They think holdback falls to the bottom line as profit. Holdback has been 2% for some time now BTW.

Have to agree that with the internet things have certainly improved a great deal in regards to pricing information however I'm guessing that doesn't necessarily mean true cost information is out there.

Actually it's not "crap". This month I have sold six Accords at a true loser. But, there are other areas in the dealership that NEVER lose money, which allows the new car department to take some losses.

Some things about this deal: 1) The real selling price appears to be kind of high. The selling price of my 2008 Accord EX two weeks ago was $2945 less than MSRP and that included the dreaded 'doc fee'. This deal is $2105 less than MSRP plus the doc fee. That puts the selling price at $1756 less than MSRP. There may not be an additional $1200 worth of water left ... Read More

I would stay away from the 2008 Accord XLE because as mentioned it was the first production year for that particular style. We owned one and the road noise was horrendous I'm assuming you mean EX-L?

when will the 2009 honda come out? August/September will it be much more expensive than the 2008's that they are selling on the lots now? No, it'll probably be the same price because the 08 has been redesign so the next 4/5 years will look like the 08 accord right now. Look at all the other generation of Accord before that. They keep the same design for 4/5 years. So, the ... Read More
I just bough a 2008 Accord Ex-l sedan for $22710 plus dest, tax, and fees through the internet department at Vip Honda in N.Plainfield N.J.. I spoke to the internet manager George. They were very upfront with everything.
I suppose I could let the resident "experts" answer your question and I'm sure they will correct me but... Look for 2009's in Spetember. I expect few if any differences. Yes, they will cost more. Everything is going up. You can get an excellent deal on a 2008 but don't wait too long. Both are good cars but the Accords drive so much better. My opinion only. Don't get confused over ...

I emailed all the dealers in SE Minnesota and the best price for the blue 08 Accord LX-P (including destination charge) was 20,039. Tom Kadlec Honda in Rochester, MN matched the price and 3 days later we had the car for a total price with tag/title/tax/doc fees of $22,063. The doc fees were $91. We did not have a trade-in or use their financing. Very nice to not haggle! We let ... Read More

Which do you like driving better? The Avalon in particular should drive differently (e.g. softer, more isolated ride) than the other two. If that's not important to you, all of these should be pretty reliable but the Avalon has the edge I think because 2011 was the first year for that Sonata, and 2008 the first year for that Accord. If the Certified Sonata includes extending the bumper to bumper warranty ... Read More
I will try $23,000 even on EXL 4cyn sedan at my local dealership tomorrow and see what happens. Wish me luck.
What about tag and dealership fees?

No problem. Keep us posted with what happens! ;)
Thank you so much for your response. I really appreciate it. I intend to meet with the dealer this week. Hopefully they will be true to their offer. :)
I bought my car in Boch Honda, MA. 23,300 for a 4-CYL EX-L Coupe is an OK price I feel. There sure is more room for negotiation I feel. For an EX I suggest not paying more than 21,000. Be sure to think about the APR also, they may give you a good deal on the car, but will get you at the APR (If you are going with Honda or ... Read More
Yes, 23,300 + 7% sales tax + $45 car registration. Bought my car in Boch Honda, MA. I still felt there was room for negotiation after I made the deal. Try buying a car with a high volume dealer. You have a huge bargaining wndow with them. Ask them for their invoice first and start at $1000 less than invoice.
Thegraduate, It is a Sedan, 4cyl, Automatic.
I would think with a little price shopping, most people should be able to get invoice, possibly a few hundred less. Remember, the 2009s will be on the lot in 2 months, making your car a full model year old.
Thanks. I did see the invoice price. So, I shouldn't pay more than invoice?
how much should the same car (ex-l 4-cyl) cost with navigation - any opinions?
the graduate- I am not smithsinc, but I am looking at same model. 2008 ex-L sedan no navigation and automatic transmission, 4-cyl
