Default How much should I pay for this 2010 Honda?

http://i47.tinypic.com/vzj2vb.jpg

I am buying it for my nephew. I will be buying the car in Georgia.

I tried to use Honda's web page to get a listing of the car, but the
options don't match. The car has a rear spoiler, but the option on
the window calls it "appearance package" The price is not the same.

I also didn't see the Theft protection or Nitrogen package listed as
an option on the web site.

"Nitrogen package"??? What a hoot!

Sure looks like that dealer is adding lots of his own little frills and
doohickeys to that car quite independently of what the car came with when
he bought it from Honda.

I'd stay away from that dealer if I were you.

The car is brand new. It is still on the Honda lot. No pre owned.
The car has 5 miles on it.

It's NOT on the "Honda" lot. It's on the DEALER's lot. Honda does not
own or operate any dealerships. The dealer bought that car from
American Honda and is re-selling it to you. The dealer is NOT "Honda",
they just own a franchise license from American Honda. They are an
independent company.

The law recognizes sales from automaker to dealer as not actually being
a "sale" for the purposes of the definition of a "used car". A vehicle
only becomes a "used car" once the dealer sells it to you. Even if that
car ends up being sold from one dealer to another for a while, it's
still a "new" car because it never got sold outside of the dealer/Honda
network.

Since the dealer is NOT "Honda", he can do anything he likes to the car.
If you see stuff being advertised by the dealer that you can't find on
Honda's website, then that stuff is just puffery the dealer has added to
the car so he can try and pad his margins. Beware!

Are you saying that those options were not installed at the factory?

Is the nitrogen package the air in the tires?

Only if they appear on American Honda's website.

However, some options /are/ from Honda, but are dealer-installed (rear
mud flaps are one famous example). Those will be listed as official
options in the sales brochure and on the Honda website.

Remember, the dealer owns that car and is free to put whatever shit on
it that he thinks he can make money from. You really have to watch for
that sort of thing.

Bingo! If it doesn't appear in the Honda literature for the car, or
on the Honda website, it is NOT a factory option. The dealer is
adding crap to jack up his margin. "Nitrogen Package"? What a joke.
