Honda Finance does not allow documentation fees.

OP of this thread,

It might be good idea for you to visit a dealership or two first and get all the details on financing or leasing (details like interest rate, term, monthly pmt, residual buyout etc). Use that information to see if that would fit your budget.

Bargaining does not require you to get a "pre-approval" either.

As mentioned previously in this thread, there is not much movement on bargaining the msrp price on new releases.

Good luck. The '13 Accord is a great car with amazing features.

You can visit http://www.honda.ca and build your unit and see how much financing / leasing would be.

I guess they don't use that term but they still try to hose unsuspecting customers. A manager was quoting a price to me and said there would be $200 on top for wheel locks, gas, and prep of the car. When I asked him about it did he decide to remove that charge. Needless to say, I won't be buying from there.

I'm not in dire need of one right now so I can wait since there will be more wiggle room next year when the 2014s come.
I'd love to own one now but it doesn't look like that will happen and I can pay cash if need be. Every dealership I've spoken with keeps telling me how limited the stock is and that they can't move far from msrp even though there is quite a markup from invoice to msrp (plus holdback).

Wheel locks $99
Tank of Gas $70
Labor Prep $30

Doesn't seem too out of the ordinary. Plus like you said, you asked and he removed it. Sounds like customer service to me..?

I haven't bought a new car in a while but it seems odd to be charging for gas but maybe that's normal?
