Default 2004 Accord price?

I've been shopping for an Accord and have found a demo with 4k miles. It is
the EX V6, loaded with everything including the navigation and voice
commands. I have talked the dealer down to 25800.00. Edmonds reports the TMV
at 26565.00 Is there room for more talking or should I bite at this price?

That same site lists invoice as $25,551. Why would you pay $250 over
invoice for a new car, let alone a demo with 4,000 miles on it??

You're getting ripped off if you bite.

agreed, sweeten the deal. 4k miles gives you the wiggle room. If you're
totally sold on this vehicle, have them throw in the first few oil changes
along with the 30k maintenance. Or get them to put on fog lights, spoiler,
chrome wheels, etc. Tell them you want a lower then bank APR % financing.

Re-offer with some of the things I've listed. You get hard with them and
they'll do more for you.

good luck
Keith

This is what we paid on a new 2004 Honda Accord EX V6 Auto with Navigation
with 1.9% int at 36 mo and with 0 down (no trade-in). Sale Price (Includes
Destination) - $25,841.21 + tax and title. I got him to throw in a free
cargo tray too! Cincinnati, OH dealer - this was done via the internet -
when we went to a different dealer direct we did not get near as good a
quoted price. Good Luck! DonnaB PS You will love the navigation system -
it is so cool!!!!

That's why I asked the question here first. The dealer is adding destination
charges - $490, some other BS things like pin striping, some kind of spray
undercoat, trunk tray, etc that adds up to $390, to the invoice. I told him
I can get the same car with 0 miles and in the color I want for $26,141 from
carsdirect.com. He said he could deduct 1700 for mileage on the sticker
price, but not on the invoice price??? I was confused by this.

I've got 60 month 3.75% financing approved. I would never trade a car in to
a dealer either. Ever notice that is the first thing they ask? "are you
trading anything in?" This is because they know that they can make money on
both vehicles then.

This dealer is throwing in the trunk tray, but that doesn't make up for the
mileage. I'm going to hold out and get a new one for invoice or he'll have
to knock off more for the mileage.

Thanks for the info, that's exactly what I'll do. I kept insisting the
mileage was the only reason I was concerned and he said he could take off
$1700 (.46 per mile) on the sticker price, but not on the invoice price. I
am still confused why he even told me this? Now I know the can take off that
much either way. I'll post the results.

Another thing - when we went to a local Honda dealer we tried dealing on a
demo that had spoilers and other dealer options on it. Forget it - after an
hour of negotiations and going to the manager for approval we walked out! I
got my price emailed to me from another local dealer using either Kelley or
Edmunds or Car Direct so see if you can get quotes from other online sources
for a new Accord. If you live near Cincinnati, OH I would definately
recommend Honda East - the salesman was Tom O'Leary and the email he sent me
was exactly what we paid - no surprises! But I do think the best deal is
when you are quoted via email from the dealer's internet sales dept. Also
watch out for them tacking on that D&D charge - ours was included thus
making our quote below invoice. DonnaB

For the money you'll be spending on a new car why settle for a previously
enjoyed car? ... and a brand new car hasn't been beaten to death in 'test'
drives.
