    You seem to get a much better deal than me. I just got the 09 Odyssey EX with added window tint for $26700 drive-out. I am in Houston and this seems to be the lowest I could get in Houston area. The good part is that the dealership offers lifetime powertrain warranty (no time or mile limit).
  • I just bought a 2009 Odyssey EX-L in West Allis today. The dealer was Schlossmann's. Great to deal with. Out the door price was $29,034. So everything except for the sales tax(5.1%) was $27,553. I think that's a pretty good price.

    Looks exactly what I saw in southern CA for EXL w/ Nav & Res and Touring.

    Congrats lyao! Happy Mother's day.
    Could you please give us a break down of the OTD price?
    So often, the dealer quotes you the price and delivery as one price and you don't add in the taxes, doc fees, etc until the sit down talks.
    I am close to buying an EXL RN, waiting for a cherry red.
    Hoping to get the best deal and maybe talking the sales rep into extras. :)

    Thanks so much!!

    I got my new ody today.
    However, I found this on my window sticker after home:

    FOR THIS VEHICLE
    Final Assembly Point:
    USA

    Country of Origin: Engine:
    USA

    Transmission:
    USA

    How about you guys' 09 Ody, all in USA?

    All US bound Odysseys are assembled in America.
  • cleverstarcleverstar Posts: 23
    But shouldn't at least my Engine Origination be Japan?
    Do all US Odys have engines made in USA or is it just mine, and you guys all get engines imported directly from Japan?

    Is that why some dealers sell cheap odys (because all in USA) while some others insist higher prices (because engine imported from Japan)?

    Hi lyao,
    Congrats on your new odyssey. Do post your experiences with the van.
  • ineedaminivan,

    I am planing to buy a Van from Honda city too. Any tips? Did you you have to negotiate much at honda city? how much more they were asking for EX-L with Res. Who was the salesman or was it internet quote? Thanks
  • mynuacctmynuacct Posts: 21
    BTW, did you read earlier posts on honda warranties in this forum. At saccucci honda 8yrs/120k warranty is $1060 ($100 deductible) and $1160 ($0 deductible). I think you get 30 days to cancel the warranty with full money back and you can also take it at a later date again.
  • pray4allpray4all Posts: 11
    your price is wrong, that's for 7y/120k

    for 8y/120k it's $1235 (0 deductible)

    forget about the $100 deductible plan, it requires $100 deductible every time you need the service
  • lyaolyao Posts: 71
    Hi mynuacct,

    We did went to www.myhondawarranty.com and printed out all info.
    But did realize they got a lawsuit from American Honda. The judge had overturn the case. Now, the American Honda has the right to not approving online purchase for Honda Extended Warranty thru Saccucci. We kinda afraid what if we paid for it, later American Honda won't agree to it.

    Also, we did get to another site for $1295 8years/120K $0 deductible from www.bernadiwarranty.com This site is better, got no lawsuit from American Honda. We even printed out to show the dealership. Just for the safe site, we think $200 extra wasn't really a big deal to us since we'll have piece of minds for another 8 years.

    Next, our auto insurance company GEICO also has the Mechanical Breakdown program for this particular vehicle for up to 7 years/100K miles. We did quoted the GEICO, they only charge $40 for 6 months up to 7 years/100K miles which ever comes first but this has $250 deductible. We afraid after 3 years and maybe 1 time auto mechanical repairs, they might backup and says got to raise our insurance premium (even if they kept on telling me they won't do that).

    Compared to what I already negotiated by having $7000+ discount (It's a bless to us) from the auto MSRP. We were way beyond what other people paying for.

    Before we buy the contract, we asked. We know we could have 60 days for full refund by cancelling the Extended Warranty from my dealership. But if we cancalled and buy it from Bernadi (safer with no lawsuit) for the same vehicle, Bernadi is going to charge us for another $165 just to backup the contract purchasing from our dealership (rules from American Honda).

    We don't think we wanna do that! Since we'll have piece of minds for another 8 years (100% sure no back up contract by all Honda dealers).

    My hub has UBS auto buying program from his corporate. We even have Costco Auto Buying program. We did quote the dealership and the sales showed us the price, our OTD at least $2,500 lower than that! Plus, we'll get free lifetime oil changes (we're talking ~$1,000+ savings in the long run), 15% off scheduled maintenance for lifetime.

    We did not quote for base price for 2009 Honda Odyssey EXL RN, since we could hardly figure out what's the OTD prices would be (with different charges from different dealership & different states --- MD & VA). So, we only wanted to deal with the OTD pricing with different dealerships for piece of minds.

    There's a benefit for us to buy in MD since they got a law that they could only charge customers for a max of $100 dealer processing fees and 3% (instead of 3.17%) taxes for Va residents.

    We think we did great! Thanks for your suggestion though. We would love to hear more news about saving money.....

    Btw, we still couldn't figure out how to set up the HomeLink with our Garage Door Opener. :confuse: Maybe we will try trouble shooting today and see.
    If not, we will contact our dealership for more info.
    Can anybody pls tell us how to set this HomeLink?

    Last night we drove to GW Parkway near DC Reagen National Airport. The weather was nice. The Odyssey even nicer (both navi and the auto dimming mirrior will auto adjust the brightness when dark). The engine was great! Very smooth and quiet. The speakers were great compared to regular Toyota Sienna 120 watt speakers! We felt like we're hearing the concert inside our luxury minivan (leather seats). Very Romantic (by looking at the nightview of Washington DC and watching the airplane came up and down to the airport)! :P

    Even though we wish to install the backup sensor (it's going to cost $800+) and fog lights ($500+), think of the cost we gave up. Yea, we can still survive without them though.

    Hi ernurse1

    What's your email? Maybe I could forward the quotes to you (I don't have the base price though).
    Let me know if interested. Then, I'll forward the quotes to you.
    Thanks and same to you ---> Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
    Do you live in metro DC?
    The OTD price that I got was for VA residents (3% taxes, $670 dest fees, up to $100
    dealer processing fees, VA TTL).
    Good luck!

    Lorraine.

    Hi Lorraine,

    Thanks so much. I would appreciate the help. I live in Indiana, but I can use the information to help me get a low price here in the midwest.

    Take out the X's (trying to prevent the spam).

    Thanks again and congratulations on your purchase.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you, it's been a little crazy this week. I've been working with lori at First Team Honda, she has been wonderful and the dealership is top notch. There has never been any pressure to buy just the numbers I've asked for. I would be willing to see if they would come down a bit if we bought together, let me know. If you want to go in together and see if we can get a better deal let me know. Please send me a message at susanrisa at earthlink dot net.

    Hello cshonda

    Congrats on your deal. That's a sweet deal for FL. May I ask which dealer did you go to and salesperson?

    Thanks.
  • cshondacshonda Posts: 12
    contacted dealers from Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach. The guys in Miami respond to internet quote requests with junk emails -- maybe they couldn't translate what I was asking for to their language. Head to Rick Case if you want to over pay for the vehicle but get a 'free' xyz lifetime warranty on a car part that doesn't exist or never breaks. Head to Coral Springs if you want to put up with condescending aholes that hide your keys, don't negotiate, and try to steal trade-ins. That leaves Palm Beach County. Stick with the smaller guys and you should be fine.

    Which dealer in Houston is gave you quote for 26700 OTD for EX? you can email me seperately at satjosh@hotmail.com
  • john2009john2009 Posts: 5
    Last month, the best quote I got was from an internet sales manager, of $23,800 plus tax and title (so long as it was a color he already had in stock). I've been waiting for a better deal somewhere, since some posts from other regions seem to be $400 - $800 less. Sometimes it's tough to tell, because people quote an out the door price, without saying how much is the state's sales tax.

    Any recent news of deals, within a couple hundred miles (Ohio, DC, MD, PA, WVa)? Thanks! == John
  • davidnewtdavidnewt Posts: 5
    It is Goodson Honda North. This is about $800 from their quote. Another dealer is Gillman Honda with similar quote. I don't know if I get the best deal. It seems that people from other area (NJ, PA, FL etc.) could get the same thing for $800-1000 less.
  • cleverstarcleverstar Posts: 23
    around 24,000 inlcuding all dealer fees
    2,000 8.37% NY tax
    250 title/registration
    50 to reimburse myself for research, effort and time:)
    standard EX, no free gifts except the wheel locknuts (I think it's default)...

    the only regret is my sticker says everything made in USA,
    assembled in USA, engine in USA, transmission in USA.
    any comments on this? did any one get something made in Japan instead?

    also, does anyone know how to check the manufacturing date once I got this baby in my own garage? as I want to make sure my car doesn't fall in some recalls (like break line etc).

    Picked up the van on Friday 5/8.
    Brand new, had 15 miles on it.
  • pray4allpray4all Posts: 11
    I think every ody has major parts (engine, trany etc) from USA now
  • lyaolyao Posts: 71
    Finally, the Homelink System is now connected to my Garage!
    Btw, the minivan I got just had 1 mile when purchased. Very lucky! By the time we came out from the dealership, it's just 2 miles. The salesperson said he had been saving and hiding that particular minivan for me (just came in 1 or 2 days ago).
    Very nice!

    Do highly recommended for buying the extended warranty (with $0 deductible/ 8 years/ 120K miles). Due to unreliability of Honda ratings compared to Toyota, esp. if you'd so many electronic features with this (it will sure cost you $$$$ in the future if you didn't buy it while you can).

    After reading your post here, we went as well and only after confirming that they would agree on a subtotal price ($25,000) for an EX with the mud guard, wheel locks, etc. They were awful. At first, they were all nice and told us that the person that was supposed to deal with us left because of a death in the family, which was understandable. Then they said that they did not have any EX in the parking lot, only LX and EXL and that to have one brought to us would cost an extra one grand. The money wasn't the problem -it was the fact that we had agreed on a price through email and we even had it with us. They flat out lied to us about having an EX because we saw them in the lot, then they spent an hour arguing with us on the price and were talking down to us because we weren't white Americans and thought they could cheat us out of the deal. They were talking so sweetly and nicely to us before and sugar-coating everything and then they became plain rude. They refused to even include the mud guards and stuff at the new price of $26,000.

    So I went to a different dealer and paid $300 more including taxes/processing/dealer fees. I couldn't believe that the people at Jim Coleman would do such a thing. I HATED my experience there. I'm never going there again. If they agreed on an online price, why can't they keep their promise? I brought in the email and everything and showed it to them and they were like sorry we can't do such a thing. It was so frustrating. The best part? They asked us for a $500 deposit before we even got there. What a bunch of cheating losers. I got a better deal somewhere else. Bottom line: DON'T GO THERE.

    I didn't bother with Jim Coleman either. They would only deal if I came in. They would not committ to matching an internet quote from another dealer either. Sounded like they did a bait and switch on you.

    I'm going with Hersons.
  • Just bought a brand new Odyssey Touring with NO PAX from Holler Honda in Winter Park, FL. Optional Equip was a Protection package which included Wheel Locks, Cargo Tray, Splash Guards, Paint Protection.
