    It really is a clean looking car. There's some minor damage to the floor upholstery, and the steering column looks a little worn, but overall, I think I'm getting a great deal.

    How much did you pay for this if you don't mind?

    I have a 2008 Honda Accord and I am planning on selling it and getting a 2013 Honda Accord.

    It's a salvage title, so it's definitely under standard blue book value. I'll PM you the number.

    I have a truck, a trailblazer. ;)

    My other Honda was my 2nd car so I could have a vehicle with better gas mileage. Once I got it, I barely drove my truck except for weekends. Only saw the highway once, too. I'm getting this car for the same reason as I got the other car. Gas mileage, tho I'm not sure if it'll be as good as my old Honda since this is a 4-cylinder vs the 6-cylinder I had in my old coupe. Either way, it'll still be better than my truck, so I still come out ahead.

    That is not true in todays market of buying/selling cars. Some manufactures have profit in their cars and some do not. I stare at invoices all day long for instance on a Honda Fit there is about 600 difference between MSRP and Invoice.

    Noone gets as much off sticker on an import like some here think (although online, everyone is taller, a better athlete, better at,,,, and a harder negotiator).

    Of course those of you who claim to get 10% off sticker, probably don't realize your dealership might have raised the sticker price to cover the slack.

    Furthermore, everyone prices their car online now at the automaker websites so I knew the MSRP before I went in and they told me, it was exactly the same.

    I have found that the MSRP online is always less than it is on the invoice or the Moroney sticker. Reason being is the MSRP online doesn't usually include trasportation fees and advertising fees. So when the dealer orders the car the manufacturer will calculate those numbers and go ahead and send out the invoice and Moroney sticker. However the dealer can do a side MSRP if they add other options to the car to increase the profit, but they have to put what they added to the car. Long gone or those days over being able to sell way over MSRP like chrysler did the with PT cruiser.
