    The best quote I got for 2011 EX-L w/RES is 34,000 OTD. Wonder if anyone has a better deal than this. I shop around VA-MD dealers.
  • I corrected that in another message - we actually paid $39,500 - it was San Marcos Honda. Good luck!
  • In Houston Zips I priced EX using carbuyingtips spreadsheet located online and offered 29,200 (includes Dest+3% dealer profit in my calcs) and so far no takers. That 3% I offered and there kickback should be enough to make them at least consider my offer. I think the Celestial Blue is only being delivered to dealers as an EX-L and the dealer may have additional options to throw down that I am not interested in. Another poster mentioned dealer options and there price on them vs. actual cost. That alone makes dealing with them on the lot more difficult. Definitely need to have your pocket scientific calculator on hand. Dealers don't seem that hungry for some reason at this time. They sure do want my 08 back though. Not sure what the manufacturer is doing regarding output.

    After a month of going back and forth between Sienna, Odyssey, Acura MDX and Mercedes Benz R350 we settled on the Odyssey. Looked high and low all over texas, Oklahoma and the lowest offer was from a dealer in Lawton Oklahoma for 32,085 +ttl. They did not have the color we wanted and since we were buying a new vehicle it did not make sense to settle.

    I am in the Dallas area and I finally bought the Odyssey 2011 EX-L without RES or NAV for 33K (including Destination) + TTL with the following options
    Cargo tray, Door sill garnish, Window tint, All season Mats, wheel locks, mud guards and door edge guards. It was the best deal I could find . It does definitely look like the prices here in Texas are higher than they are up North. I did contact Landmark Honda in Virginia and they did say they could sell one for 31K but cost of shipping it down to Texas is 700 bucks on a truck and when you add the options etc the difference is not that much. Additionallly they did not have the color I wanted .

    I did pay a deposit and waited a week to get the color I wanted.

    The buying experience was smooth. The dealer could not match Honda Care warranty price online and so I plan to buy from Hyannis Honda (Bob Leab) the Honda care extended warranty. Plan to buy either the 6yr /80k or 7 yr/80k. Have not decided yet.

    For this interested : I not only paired the iphones with the bluetoothhandsfree system but also my IPAD. My plan was to let kids watch videos on ipad when travelling on a long trip and with a car seat mountable ipad case from Amazon (was 5.99 when I bought it last week but aparently jumped to 11 bucks now)
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003WSLOZW
    Anyway it works great and now after pairing I can stream sound through the car audio system. I am sure there is a roof mount for the IPAD that can be flipped down like the RES system .

    If you have any questions feel free to ping me at pricewala at gmail dot com.
  • Thanks for the input ledsled.

    The Edmunds total invoice price for my zip is $28,822 (28,042 base + 780 dest fee) , so I guess 28,840 is pretty good. Just not sure how updated edmunds is so I wanted to get some feedback.
  • I just tried a Houston zip, 77001, and got the same numbers. Not sure what to make of it..
  • Srjain,

    I also may be purchasing either a new or CPO Ody from Autosport. They've been great so far but we havent really started talking #'s about our trade in....

    Would you be willing to itemize the fees which you were hit with when you ended up signing the paperwork? TTL,Contract fee, Prep fee, Etc. I'd just like to know what to expect if we get that far in the process.

    Thanks for the help.
  • wow, i think you got a good price. approximately 800 below total invoice AND you get those accessories! congrats!

  • Yes, the $32410 included destination.
  • Car Man & KYFDX, I need your help. It doesn't look like Honda is offering any incentives this month on the 2011 Honda Odyssey EX; nor can I find any site that actually lists the scheduled manufacturer incentives by month for the year 2011. I could have swarn that last year when I was in the market for a Honda Civic, I found a site that stated the entire years Manufacturer planned incentives. Making my desission as to which months to purchse in my favor. Do U have any idea where U can fins this?

    With all that being said, I could mosy defineyely use any help with any pric/ :cry:
  • Sorry... I haven't seen anything that lists planned incentives..

    As for price, just scroll back a few pages, and see what everyone else is paying...

    Good luck!

  • Yes I do believe they are offering a great buy to you if this includes Destination charge. Wish they would throw that at me here in oiltown. I offered 29200 Sale Price because I wanted the cargo mat and mudflaps. This business of the dealer adding on options and running the profit up on these items is annoying. I have been working with the Internet/Fleet Salesman and he isn't getting anywhere with the SM or GM regarding my offer. I need to speak with them regarding the Celestial Blue in EX. Maybe that is part of the holdup as well as their dealer add-ons.

  • Hi Dobber2, could you clarify the OTD price of 34,000. Does that include the sales tax, documentation, licence, plates, fees etc etc... If it includes all this, could you please give me the details of the dealership and who you worked with. please send me the details to vijay_vissa@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

    I have been trying to find a EXL w/RES in and around Chicago. The cheapest quote i got is from Decatur - $36,500 OTD. (Includes all the above).
  • I have to extend a word of thanks to all of the folks who have posted on this forum. Armed with information, I was able to secure the following deal on an EX-L RES - Smoky Topaz Metallic / Truffle interior. The dealer was great to work with. When it came time to talk about price, I just told him what the best offer I had was and just said that the price was where I was going to be at (I used the Hogan method). He nodded and pulled out his invoice on the car, showed us the price and said that was what he would charge. I was rather shocked as the Smoky Topaz / Truffle combo looks great and I think he could have sold that van at MSRP without much trouble.

    I did find that the *vast* majority of dealers out there are not willing to deal on these vans at all. Out of the 18 I initially contacted, only 3-4 were willing to deal. One was a bit higher than the other 3, another I caught loading up the deal with some sort of fee that drove up the OTD cost but were unwilling to say what it was over email or phone so the remaining two were who I ended up dealing with at the end. Most dealers price for the van only was higher than what I am paying OTD.

    There was no pressure. It was the easiest deal next to when I bought my SuperDuty on the "no-haggle employee pricing" Ford D-plan offerings here a couple of years ago when automakers were in their pre-bailout death throes. This dealer is Bender Honda out of Clovis, NM. We are going to pick it up on Friday and Momma is excited. Currently she has been hauling our 3 kids around in her '05 Mazda Tribute and since our 1yr old outgrew his infant seat, we have moved him to a regular car seat. We quickly found that 3 regular car seats do not fit in the back seat...not by a long shot (and people complain about the 3rd gen Ody not fitting 3 car seats across...lol). So now, our 7yr old has to ride up front in a booster so we are changing that.

    Best Overall Quote
    Vehicle: $32,651
    Destination: $780
    Doc Fee: $75
    + TT&L
    Dealer 120mi. away

    This was not the lowest quote I received. The lowest quote would have required a plane flight, a hotel and a half-day of vacation from work. The money worked out in favor of the closer dealer (120mi. away). Time and money wise, the above deal just worked out better for us. However, I do have to extend kudos to Corwin Honda for being a great dealer to work with - they also had the best price.

    Lowest Price
    Vehicle: $32,176
    Destination: $780
    No additional fees
    + TT&L
    Dealer 770mi. away

    The Odyssey, its' fuel mileage, space and utility have us excited. We take several trips a year ranging from 8 - 15 hours on the road. Long trips like that in my SuperDuty will lighten the wallet fast and my wife doesn't like driving it - says she feels like she is driving a bulldozer. Good luck and thanks to Edmunds for the helpful forums!!!

  • Well, I got tired of all the research and reading, etc. so last night I went to the closest dealer for a test drive. To make a long story short, I ended up making the purchase.

    Got it down to 27,650 (With destination, it's 28,430). I think I could have done better, but I had my wife, 3 yr old son, and 2.5 wk baby with me which affected my patience with the back and forth negotiation. But I'm glad it's over with so it's ok.

    Btw, I did not get any accessories from the dealer. When I got home, I ordered splash guards, all weather mats, and cargo tray from bernardiparts.com, which costed me approx $300 including shipping. Dealer quoted 399 just for the splash guards! What a rip-off! LOL!

    I'm still contemplating on buying these other parts: door guards, door visors, door sill garnish, body side molding, and wheel locks. I might end up installing all or some of these later on when the weather's warmer, since some of them require 15°C (60°F) or above ambient air temp for installation.
  • Well done. Could it be that under duress with family in tow us "gents" can still put on the Poker Face? Honestly I am impressed with the deal you made. Good move on blowing off their option charges. It's like let's have a good lunch on this guy tomorrow. Safe motoring.
  • Hi all:
    Thank you all for posting info.. have been reading for a while, and about to pull trigger. Can you let me know if you think this is good deal.
    This is in MD/PA area.

    2011 Touring Elite - Smokey Topaz/Truffle - $40,218 including destination charges

    Picked up a 2011 EXL RES from Weymouth in MA. Paid $32,669 including destination. Besides sales tax had to pay $364 in fees. Dealt with internet department and it took about two calls to get a deal done. Very easy.
