Fair offer for 2017 Accord Hybrid?

With gas prices being what they are, would $1000 below invoice be a reasonable offer? This dealer also charges a $649 Dealer Profit/Admin fee. I'm looking at an EX-L and invoice appears to be about $31,038, so I thought about offering $30,649 + TTL.

With it being a brand new unit, in low production numbers, and coming from Japan, anything you get off of it will be a surprise. I would try to contact many dealers to get them to work against each other to get the lowest price possible.

You're dealing with pent-up demand for a car that was in short supply from the get-go, that dealers were able to sell without breaking a sweat when they did manage to have one on the lot, and that had taken a year's hiatus from the market. I wouldn't expect any real discounts until Fall at the earliest.

They just came out, so I bet it will be difficult to pay below sticker price much less below invoice. In fact, I bet some dealers are actually putting a markup on the Hybrid due to its rarity. I hate to be that guy, but my guess is that you'd be laughed out of the dealership if you went in offering below invoice on a Hybrid. A standard 2017 Accord, maybe, but a Hybrid? Heck no lol.

I appreciate the help. I got a dealer to budge $1200 off MSRP, granted they charge a $649 dealer admin fee. So in reality I guess I'm only getting $551 off?

Depends on the local market and how many cars the dealer is selling. Since Honda's tend to sell themselves, finding a dealer that has salesmen jumping at every "up" that pulls on the lot may give you a clue that business isn't so good on that lot. Finding a hungry salesman in Cheyenne (cheap gas prices) will likely have different results on shaving some off the MSRP than if you asked a Jerry Garcia look-a-like at a dealer in San Jose. If you aren't going to do 20K+ city miles every year for the next 10 years, I'd pass on the hybrid.

Have you tried Costco auto buying service? I've been looking at 2 other car forums, and it seems to be pretty competitive. Civic and Tacoma are the other 2. Btw, what are the specs on the EX-L? I can't seem to find anything on it. Thanks.

They'd try to charge that $649 fee no matter what you were trying to buy. My daughter recently bought a CPO CX-5 and the dealer was willing to negotiate on a few things but not the admin fee.

Personally, I think $1,200 off on a reasonably rare car that's only hit the lots about 2 weeks ago isn't bad. Wait a couple of months and you could save double that, though.

I bought an EX-L about a month after the previous model came out in late 2013. I ended up paying 32K even. I think the MSRP was $32,695. The dealer I was working with had another offer on the table so I was basically in a bidding war. The car happened to be the exact color I wanted so I was willing to pay a premium rather than waiting several months to find another one. BTW no regrets on my purchase. Almost 30,000 miles with no issues thus far. Fuel economy has also exceeded my expectations.

I'm guessing if you wait about 3-6 months you will be able to pick up an EX-L for under $30,000.

^^^ Yep, that's my plan, pretty much - wait until supply catches up with demand and take advantage of some end-of-year deals.

My Sister-in-Law has a 1990 Miata- made during the 3rd week of Miata production ever.

She is the 3rd owner- but is friends with the first 2 owners. The original invoice says "Dealer adjustment- $5,000".

That's right, owner #1 paid $5,000 on top of the invoice price....that's how sought after the new Miata was.

Don't be THAT guy.

Yeah I want Honda to sell well and all but wait a 4-5 months and you'll save $1,200-2,000. Look at it in terms of payments; that is like 3 months 1which you keep in your pocket or use it to reduce the loan amount. Obviously, this ls if you need a car right now but that is the economics of car buying. If you keep the car long term and get good use out of it then it's no big deal.

I've been shopping the 2017 hybrid as well and have been in correspondence with 4 dealers in the Atlanta, GA area. Only one of them has been able to provide a price quote and time frame for production and delivery. The other three have no idea when they will be getting them in and don't have any pricing. The quote I receive from the one with info is exactly MSRP. I requested a 6.5% concession off the quoted price and they replied that they would not be discounting the hybrid models for some time. I'm meeting with the agent face to face tomorrow and I will still ask for a concession to close the deal due to a poor experience I've had with their communication. I won't go into those details here but I will see what happens tomorrow and report back.
