Default new honda discounts

Is everyone getting serious discounts on Hondas right now ? I bought
my wife a 2005 Civic EX SE 5 speed tonight for $1,175 below the
MSRP price. Sticker was $17,975, I paid $16,800. I bought the
car from Gillman Honda here in Houston. I am verfy pleased with
the price plus I got 60 month 2.9% financing from Honda. I am still
looking for the gimmick.

Thanks,
Lynn McGuire

I don't know what's the invoice price on the car, but the last few new
civics I got from Goodson are ~200 over invoice + TTL, no extra fees or
anything, everything over the phone.

$16,450 is the invoice. I was willing to pay a couple of dollars more
because I am getting exactly what I want.

The 2.9% is a deal specifically for the Civic.
http://tinyurl.com/4jjkx

I just bought an 05 Odyssey EX-Cloth for $26,750(incl $515 shipping),
OTD $28,689.69. That's $1765 below MSRP. This was at a Dallas, TX
dealership(400 miles from where I live). Pretty good in my opinion for
such a hot vehicle.

The deal wasn't easy though. This was my 5th dealership to visit and
even there I had to fight off very high pressure sales tactics towards
addon's, accessories, service agreements, lojack/gap/life/tire insurance.

Honda's are great vehicles, I just wish the dealers could be more honest
and straight forward. The first dealer I went to in my home town
actually modified the sales worksheet that we had an agreed upon price
to add $2000 to the price between him and the finance office. Bastard!

Great research here in the Town Hall.

I was wondering the same thing about the Acrua (Honda) TSX. I went to the
dealer yesterday. His attitude was like: "The TSX's are practically sold
right off the truck. You gotta pay a non-refundable $1000 deposit. Take it
or leave it."

He did agree to not charge more than sticker, however. It's a nice car,
and the dealer has good customer service. I'm thinking about buying one.

Screw them! They are not doing you a favor, you are doing them one. You
are giving them a LOT of money as you'd be paying MSRP for sure on a deal
that way. I'd be extremely hesitant before handing over a $1000 deposit.
Right away the dealer "owns" you and knows it. A few months ago, I was at a
Honda/Hyundai dealership, well anyway Hyundai has a new model called the
Tucson and had one sitting in the lobby. I looked at it and I spotted the
"golden" cost called A.D.M = Additional Dealer Markup of $3000. I laughed
outloud just as the sales guy came over. He was starting the sales pitch
and I asked him right off, who the hell is going to pay for your A.D.M.? He
didn't really get it... so he then stated "don't you want to be the first
owner in the area? I said "no." Now they are selling for just under MSRP
(which is still kinda surprising)

On Edmunds, the average sale is $1100 below MSRP for the Acura TSX

Do a search on the Acura site (or Edmunds) for the next closest dealers (or
close major cities) and give them a call. You already know what the ride is
like (I assume) and what you want so go find a better price! Would you
drive a couple hundred miles for a (say) $1000 in final cost to you? I'd
already be on the road.

Not that it really mattered. While I'd willing to
provide a non-refundable deposit, it would only be on the condition that the
dealer sign a firm, fixed-fee contract for the price of car. And you know
that isn't going to happen.
