Just bought a 2005 Accord Hybrid. No one knows when the 2006 will be
available. Got about 2900 off although there was a $400 doc fee and I know
there was a $1200 Honda to dealer incentive at the end of the year.
well, to give you some sort of idea, I got an 06 accord sedan (EX-L with
navigation) for 24,800 (including dest. charge and rear wing spoiler
installed) the Doc. fee was very reasonable (75 bucks) and no insaine
charges added on. invoice on this car was slightly under 24,000 (with no
spoiler, msrp on the wing was about 500 bucks) so givin that I paid close to
invoice for the car (a few hundred over) I'd say your best bet is to get a
quote from www.carsdirect.com and go from there, also call a few places (I
called 2 or 3 different ones to get my quote down before I even stepped in
the dealership) just make sure you:
1) Always negociate the PRICE of the car fist (make sure you say including
destination charge) don't fall into the trap "what are you looking to make
2) if possible, handle your car price, trade in and financing seperately
(and from 3 different places if possible)
3) NEVER take the first offer, (or 2nd or 3rd for that matter)
4) good luck, some people hate the car buying experiance, I find it to be a
fun game, because you havea ll the power of just getting up and walking out,
and believe me the salesmen (or woman) and sales manager DON'T want that
I would add if you hate negotiating just go the the dealers web site and try
their process for internet buying. You can start the process from
You will get pretty close to your lowest price that way.
I just did this morning and have been getting quotes from 4 dealers. It
is indeed a nice way to gauge typical selling prices. The Accord is
selling a little above the invoice while the Civics are going only a
little below MSRP.
But nobody specified V6. In fact, the OP stated that he was looking to buy
a 4-cylinder. Again, the Accord Hybrid's gas mileage is not much better
than the regular 4-cylinder version. Even a leftover 2005 Hybrid will
probably still cost significantly more than a new Accord 4-cylinder and
still somewhat more than a new Accord V6. Unless you do A LOT of driving,
especially in the city, it is highly unlikely that the savings in refueling
costs will offset the extra costs of purchasing the Hybrid.
To beat a dead horse he wrote:
"I'm looking to buy a 2006 Honda Accord LX (4 cyl) soon and I would like
to know the prices any of you in this forum paid for LX (and other
models like EX etc) and your buying experience."
The operate phrase is "and other models like EX etc"
