Last night I did the Fool Faxathon to 16 Honda dealers in the Boston area. It is now 11 am and I have five offers, one of which is quite good (but still a couple of hundred above my FVP).

I suggest you try the same thing. Here is a great link:
http://usmarket.com/auto/honda
Click on your state and you get a list of dealers. (You can map them with Yahoo maps to see how close they are to you.) Click on the Dealer Name in the list and you will be taken to Honda's site with more information on the dealer, including their fax number and their web page (if they have one).

FYI I am looking at the Accord LX Sedan 4-cyl standard shift. Invoice plus delivery is $16,556 and I have an offer for $16,599. The dealer holdback is 2% of $18,290 = $366, so anything over $16,190 is profit to the dealer, assuming he actually pays $16,556 for the car, which I doubt. My FVP is $16,300.
