    Wait for a few more days ... the Month Promotion should be up by Aug-7
    Plus every Sat the Week promotion is up online. Download it on PDF (link is at bottom of page) and zoom in to 150% studying the fine prints & stock No. then search for New Cars to see whether in inventory. Email the sales guy to confirm availabilty & hopefully ask the sale guy to email you to confirm all the figure, like Out-The-Door amount. Email is on record, can be printed in hardcopy when you came down to Boch. Better yet, no trade in, or you sell to carmax, carsdirect who might give you higher price. Don't think Boch will give you top dollar for your trade, based on my experience. Last yr I sold my 03 Mazda MPV in $2,000 more than the KKB's excellent trade-in value.

    More detail please. What's the tax rate?
    In VA, I think it's only 3%. In NY, tax rate is 8.75Z%.. A very big different.

    What did you pay for the EX-L in Moses Lake? Was it a cash deal or did it include some financing?

    I'm interested in the Odyssey but am neutral regarding the model year. I want the entertainment system, but could either wait for a 2009, buy a 2008 or buy a used 2007.

    I would expect that a used, low mileage, 2007 would be the best value. That being said the used market seems very choppy.

    By best value I mean lowest overall cost of ownership over five years or so. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated...

    Used Hondas usually aren't very good buys... High resale will do that to a car..

    Getting a new 2008 model, with the big incentives, is the probably the most cost effective over the long-term... You'll get full use of the standard 3yr, and the 5yr powertrain warranties..

    New Odysseys are cheaper now than they were in 2001....

    Just my $0.02

    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • Sorry, this (OTD) price of 31,600 for a 2008 EXL w/ RES/NAV would be registered in VA (3% tax rate) thank you!

    I am in Buffalo, NY. I went to dealer today. They offer me $24,096 + tax + state title. Is this a good deal?
  • It depends on how and where you're driving. If you're doing hard starts and rapid stops in stop and go traffic, your fuel economy will suffer.

    My wife gets about 27-28 mpg's on the highway and close to 20 in the stop and go traffic. We get on average about 375 miles per tank full (when the dummy light comes on).

    Obvoius you didn't feel it was a good deal, otherwise you would have bought it. Shoot for about $21K plus TT&L for cash purchase or $22K for the low rate APR purchase.

    Just my .02

    I saw the No. 1 volume dealer can do specials as low as 19K for LX in Boston area.
    But you're in Buffalo area probably add 1K(20K) - 2K (21K) on top of it

    Currently Every 08 LX With MSRP $26,495 Lease $198 with $0 Down
  • EXL Purchase for 26,200 + TTL
  • Is anyone going for this with their purchase? It appears to be a total waste of $ unless you total your vehicle or lose it in the 1st 2 years. It is insurance against the depreciation encountered once you drive off the lot. The insurance companies (so the story goes) will not reimburse the total vehicle cost, and the GAP covers the difference (in this case the rep says initially the difference is 20% of the sales price).

    I bought a 2008 odyssey exl r&n getting about 220 miles to a full tank witch is about 10 miles to the gallon is any body else having the same problem
  • Castilloca, what dealer did you purchase from?

    Today (Aug 2nd) I have a quote from Norm Reeves for a 2008 EX-L for $27,328. plus tax and license fees. (OTD is $29,795).

    Norm Reeves beats the pants off of anything in San Diego I've seen but yours is even better.

    Any other So-Cal folks near or below the Norm Reeves please let me know!
  • hi
    i just bought last week 2008 ODYSSEY EX-L RES AND NAV.i had same problem. i got 230 miles for first tank of gas. I am driving well. No hard
    accelation or stop and go. But it is not high way. In manuel says 15-17 miles/gallon.My heated seats are not working. I am going to take to the dealer today.10 miles/gallon is horrible with todays gas prices $4/gallon.
    if your car imrpove any mileage, pl let me know,
    How much OTD price paid for your car?

    Possible the dealer didn't give you FULL tank of gas, there are 3 more Gal or so after the needle touched the "F". In other words, they fill up as the needle to the "F" instead of the gas gun click & stop.

    Try again on your 2nd - 3rd tank fillup by yourself.

    I have read many of the great deals that some of the readers have been negotiating. I was hoping to get some details on purchases in the DFW area.

    Many Thanks
  • bohligbohlig Posts: 2
    Thanks, that is very helpful. Do you think buying a 2008 now will be a better deal than buying a 2009 later this year? I expect they might be giving incentives to move old inventory, but of course having a later model year should be worth more depreciation wise...

  • Is providing a full tank of gas standard with a new car (odyssey) purchase? I bought recently and was given the car on empty....
