It was in Northern Virginia but I got a little more than 19% off my Accord 1.5 touring in 10/2018 and I definitely left at least 200 bucks on the table due to being busy at work. I believe the discount included $1500 flex cash. I’m very confident I could beat that deal today easily if I was flexible on color. One Honda dealership by me has 12 2018 accords and has all advertised online for 10%+ off which is unusual for accords.
DC area seems to be a great car buying market due to lots of competition and easy accessibility of dealerships. If only the state governments didn’t want to punish people who lease.
The VA dealer I bought from tried to do this with their 800 dollar doc fee. Starting BSing me about how this was a fee that wasn’t revenue for the dealer and basically wasn’t money the dealer ever saw and that’s why they didn’t include it in the price we worked out via email. I called the GM over, said I’m sorry the cost of business in VA involves sending this 800 bucks down a black hole but 20 minutes away in MD the doc fee is capped at 300 bucks. So I’ll just drive over the Potomac and only send 300 bucks down a black hole there. We agreed to the previously negotiated email price about 90 seconds later.
So although VA doc fees appears high, anyone who knows what they are doing in Northern VA doesn’t have much issue working around them.
I can’t speak from experience but I’m guessing this is much easier in parts of VA that are close to dealers in MD… either way, well done. NYC (and to some extent NYS) have the opposite problem: doc capped at $75 but prices are often much higher (greater than the doc delta) than in neighboring states with higher docs.
I have never seen a $26k selling price on this trim. Lowest I’ve ever seen was $26,5 but it was on an auto show car. Your best bet is to peruse edmunds and Accord forums. Careful of not falling for a low selling price offset by high doc fees or other BS.
thanks, I will watch out for other bs charges. Yeah looking for low 26k after getting some input from the people on this forum. I’m willing to wait out on the dying inventory to try my luck. If nothing works out, it’s fine
