    Well, I did not get as good a deal as others, but it was not from a lack of effort. Emailed dealers within a nearly 200 mile radius and found two within 50 miles that offered me the best prices (this is in Minneapolis).

    I had a trade in that was also a factor in this as well. I ended up paying (before TTL but including destination) $37250 which included Honda all-weather floor mats (dealer claimed a $200 accessory which seems pretty high). This was the closest dealer to my house and I will be getting all service done there which is a plus. We also wanted a White Diamond Pearl with truffle interior which was harder to come by. Every dealer had like 5-6 Smokey Topaz and Metallic Platinum vans on the lots but we see tons of those on the road and my car is that color already.

    I was also able to get almost $2K over KBB and N.A.D.A book value on my trade-in (a 7.5 year old Odyssey with high mileage and needed an easy $3-5K in work including new timing belt, water pump, power steering pump, tires, brakes, etc). Other dealers could not touch the trade-in value and Toyota was quoting me their best trade-in deal as being $1500 less.

    Also got the .09% financing and was able to get a great deal on a 5 year 60K Hondacare warranty ($611) which was way cheaper than the online Hondacare quotes I got. Dealer tried to push another warranty company that was $300 more for the exact same coverage.

    OTD price excluding the warranty was about $39200 (Minnesota has high taxes and licensing fees).

    With my trade-in and some other cash put down, my payment is $326 a month including the warranty with 5 year financing at .09%.

    I was shocked at the trade-in variance, even between Honda dealers. Lesson learned there, I had another Honda dealer quoting me $200 better price on the Odyssey, but was coming in $1800 less on my trade-in.

    Sorry for the late Reply...I purchased my New Odyssey from Sport Honda, MD
  • I'd like to ask this forum what their experience is with asking Dealers about accessories.

    Do dealers NOT negotiate on accessories (i.e. you pay their price and thats it)?

    When forum members say they throw in accessories does that mean they are given to the customer for free?

    When asking Dealers about accessories, they don't seem to want to even talk about them until you get to the dealership.

    If anyone can post prices for what they paid for the following acccessories I'd appreciate it:
    Wheel Lock
    Roof Rack
    Body Molding
    All Season Floor Mats
    Remote Start
    Fog Lights
    Door Edge Guards
    Destination Charge
    HondaCare

    Thanks!
  • Did the $33k quoted include the destination charge or was that extra?
  • dc_driverdc_driver Posts: 712
    I would think all of it is negotiable except the destination charge.

    In many cases, you can order the accessories from a Honda parts store for cheaper online, but it is the installation where it could get expensive. Especially if you use a Honda dealer.
  • Lowest quote so far for a 2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ NAV is $33450 (includes destination charge)

    Is this a good deal? Its the end of the month so I'm expecting a lil bit more room to bargain; Would ideally like to get this down to the 32500-33000 range.

    Sent a message to a friend there is a dealer that sells them a lot cheaper.

    Try this one:
    http://www.curryhondacare.com/

    And this one:
    http://www.saccuccihondacare.com/index.php

    I used quotes from those and my local dealer beat them both.
  • Pulled the trigger on the EXL in Louisville, KY. Total OTD $33500, includes all taxes, destination and accessories worth $1400 (and installation).

    I was hunting for a good deal for quite some time and I think I got a great deal.

    The accessories are as negotiable as the car itself so be agressive in your negotiations.

    Great staff at Sam Swope Honda...
  • I've just got an email from Andeson Honda of CA (SF Bay Area) that they are selling Ody EXL on April first for $30,388. Those who are in the race, run early morning tomorrow.

    (I am not a business man, I was a recent buyer of Ody)
  • Sounds like a good deal as you got $1400 worth of accessories installed on your new Ody.. May I know what are these accessories ?
  • These are the accessories that I got:

    Remote start
    All weather Mats
    Cargo Tray
    Roof Rails
    Side molding
    Door edge guards
    mud splashers
    first aid kit

    Hi all - I've been following this forum for quite some time! We are finally doing away with our Sienna and going back to Odyssey, hopefully by the weekend. I've e-mailed some dealers and gotten quotes. I'm just looking for advice on the next steps. Do I try to get a better price by e-mail? I just want to have my ducks in a row before heading out.

    Also, I went into a dealer yesterday (while my Sienna was in the shop) and the Internet Manager who'd sent me the quote had me look at a few Odysseys. The problem was - I knew more about the vans then he did! This bothered me. He kept giving me bad info. Would I still have to work with him if we went with that dealer?

    As for incentives and rebates, do I bring those into play at the dealer?

    Here are the few quotes I've received so far- Still waiting to hear what accessories etc are included.

    1. $31,055 (includes destination and delivery)
    2. $31,457 (includes destination and delivery)
    3. $30,754 - not sure what is included.

    Are these decent? The 3rd quote is not local - about 90 miles away. Thanks in advance!

    ETA - We also plan on purchasing a new Accord at the same time. Not sure if this will help us get a good deal.

    The invoice price on the EX-L is $33,034 including destination.
    Honda is offering a $1000 dealer incentive which gets your price down to $32,034. So your first and third quotes look pretty strong (assuming the third quote includes destination). They look like strong deals to me.

    That said, why take their first quote? I would email all three back and play off the numbers. Ask them for another $500 off and see what they say. Worst case they say no :)

    I would also confirm if these prices include any dealer add-ons and what the full out the door breakdown price is including all taxes and fees. Depending on where you live some dealers will add a $300-700 dealer fee that they don't disclose until you are at the finance table. Best to get that info now.

    You should 100% be leveraging your Accord, but they should be treated as two separate transactions and you should negotiate the best deal on each separately.

    There is .09% financing on the Odyssey right now and .09-1.9% financing deals on the Accord as well, so try to take advantage of that.

    Also view your trade-in as a seperate transaction and try to get the maximum trade-in on the vehicle. Kbb.com and nada.com are good tools to leverage what you should expect to get for trade-in.
  • Thank you dc_driver! I live in California so I'm not sure on dealer fees, so thanks for bringing that up! I'm going to email them back and try some negotiation. As well as some OTD prices.
  • The last price doesn't include the doc fee of $80, so essentially that is $30834.

    And I'm seeing this e-prices are not based on actual in stock vehicles, so I need to get specific numbers on specific vehicles.

    actuallyalana and anyone else,

    when you email a dealer, are you giving a top 2-3 color choices if you aren't married to a single color? Also, are you requesting that they let you know if the dealer incentive is included in their price or is it before the 1500? I have an email roughed out that I plan to send out to all the dealers I plan to include as bcc's giving 3 color choices asking them to give me OTD. Anything else specific I should include in my email?

    thanks
