    Hi gobuckspn

    That's a awesome deal. Which dealer did you go to? Please post breakdown of your prices for everyone. Thanks.

    lyao, what I regretted is that I just bought the naked EX, not even the EXL:(
    So, no roof, no camera, no navi, no dvd, well I don't care about leather...

    I am shopping for a new 2009 Odyssey EX-L W/RES in NJ. I have gone to several dealers via Internet, email and phone. I have the following offer from a dealer that seems pretty attractive but I wanted to ask if anyone has been able to price comparable or better in NJ.

    $29,027. includes Destination and All protection package (value 508 list)
    It does not include the standard TTL costs. So I estimate that OTD will be about $31,621.

    Also, would it be better to wait util end of the month for dealer target incentives?

    Your thoughts?

    Oh, poor cleverstar. Sorry to hear that!
    Then, your EX is only basic in fabric.
    Can't help! Try to get a few price quotes from different dealerships and see what's the best deal then. Or, maybe you could wait a bit more for the newest 2010 Odyssey to come out and see, lol.
  • Just purchased an LX in cherry pearl for $22,000 minus $1500 trade in on a 99 Voyager (120k miles) for a total of $20,500. This includes dealer installed mudguards and roof rack. The wife wanted the black rubber all season floor mats with the rear cargo tray which added $329 back in and we got the Honda Care warranty 7yr/100k for $1550. Then of course taxes and license for our area. I'm a pretty basic type of guy so the LX fits my needs perfectly. Based on what I've read here, it sounds like it was a pretty fair deal.
  • I searched around these forums for a few weeks and when the wife and I decided to buy, we did quickly and we were prepared. First let me say thank you to all of those who have taken the time to post their experiences, so here is mine:

    Bali Blue, grey leather EXL w/ Navi and RES with sunroof wind deflector, all season cargo mats, and door edge guards.
    32,216 which includes $425 for remote starter
    NY sales tax 2778.63
    Total 34,994.63
    Doc Fee $45
    State Inspection $10
    License and Title $170
    Grand Total 35,219
    Financed through Honda 5 years at 3.9%

    I truly think I got a very good and fair deal. I could have gotten the car for maybe a few hundred dollars cheaper, but at the end of the day I felt very comfortable with the people I was working with. I highly advise anyone searching to be careful about destination fee which is now $720 and dealer prep fees which I saw as high as $600. When I took this deal to other dealers, some would not match and the others came in at $1000 cheaper, but were charging me $600 hundred for remote starter, 350-500 deal prep fees and some where even charging destination fee, thats why I think I got a good deal.

    I live on Long Island and I used the boys over at Millenium Honda and felt they were just like any other car dealership in that they try and get you to pay full price at first, but felt they were friendly and very knowledgeable, not to mention willing to negotiate!

    I even saw my file where it shows how much the dealership was making on the deal, and with the $2500 Honda is giving back, they made $35 bucks including holdbacks. I asked and they "told" me they are a large volume dealership and get paid by Honda for the cars they move, especially during these times, not so much on the actual car.
    Would be happy to answer any and all questions, have a good day.

    You can get a wireless backup camera for under $100.00, GPS portable for 2-300, and portable DVDs for under $200.00. I think you could even have someone do a sun roof for you.

    I hear you Cleverstar. You have to do the stuff aftermarket now is the only way. If you sell the van you will lose $$$. Find a good place that can install your stuff. The only thing you can't add easily is the VCM engine, power sliding doors, power tailgate(trunk).

    I almost bought the EX too! But I priced out everything and the backup camera and other features of the EXL sold it for me. Ended up with EXL R&N. Also, speaking with lyao convinced me too.

    hi maritimeguy,

    May I know what's the remote starter fees? Is this the Dest. fees?
    I've never heard this fees in my life before.
  • You can start your vehicle from inside your house, automaticly sets temp in cabin to either a manual setting for cold or hot or it does it automaticaly depending on temp. Great for the NE in summer and winterm esoecially for the real little ones.

    Hi Maritimeguy,

    Congrats! Thanks for the info! Wow! So high tech!
    Did not even realize there's a remote starter existing in this planet!
    I guess possibly in 10 years, the car can drive by itself then, huh!

    Where did you get that quote? I'm in the Houston area and was hoping that the quote was from a Houston area dealer. I appreciate your help in advance.

    MA Tax= $1185

    I will try to get lower least Based price down $23400.
  • I wanted to post here and let you know my pricing, experience, on my purchase of a SX-L, RES & NAV.

    Just purchased yesterday...I originally was just looking at the RES, but as the pricing got lower for me, I moved up and got the NAV too...

    Using this forum as a starting point (thanks to everyone who took their time to post as it really helped). The wildcard thing was my trade of a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe (KBB trade in price of $1500 & Edmunds TMV price of $3292. I was offered a low of $1400 and a high of $3000 by the 3 dealers that appraised my car.

    EXL with RES - $24,410 (includes admin fee of $99, splash guards $149 & $10 title fee)
    EXL with RES & NAV - $26,600 (includes admin fee of $99, splash guards $149 & $10 title fee)

    So, I guess if you find the 1/2 way point between the low and the high appraisals on my car of $2200, I think I really was offered, for just the car:

    EXL with RES - $26610
    EXL with RES & NAV - $28,800

    I visited 3 Honda dealers within 50 miles of my home personally, then used internet to talk with a total of 8 Honda dealers within 500 miles of my home. I have more time than money and was more than willing to drive if the price was right.

    Did a lot of emailing, that way their price quote was in writing, then finished up with phone calls. My last phone call before purchase was to my local Honda dealer who I promised to give the last shot to match the price...unfortunately, they were unable to ($170 higher on the EXL with RES, $350 higher on the EXL with RES & NAV). I would have preferred to go local, but can't afford to give $350 extra...they'll get most all of my service business anyway.

    I had several offers that were within $10 of each other. I went with the first place who had my preferred color, had also originally offered more for my trade without fussing about it, and was the closest to my house!!! Drove up and made the trade & purchase yesterday.

    Financed everything with Honda at 3.9. Due to all the electronics and things, I also purchased Honda Care, 8 yrs or 100,000 miles, bumper to bumper for $1135 with $0 deductable.

    I hope this information will help any of you in your purchase.
  • morrisonmuzk,

    Looks like you got a great deal on teh EX-L. What part of the country did you do your shopping?

  • Lincoln, Omaha, Des Moines, Kansas City & Denver...bought in Omaha.

    Hi morrisonmuzk... Do you know what the actual sale price of your EX-L is? $28K is pretty low (and thus a great deal) but i doubt anyone else would give this deal...
