  • I live in close to Houston, Texas. I'm looking for Touring with Pax. So far, the best OTD qoute I received was $36,700 (this includes tinting, splash guards, cargo tray, lifetime oil changes, windshield replacement (for 3 times) this a good deal? I've been reading this forum...and I was hoping for about $34-$35K OTD. Am I asking for the impossible? Thanks!

    The incentives for other Handa cars have been posted, don't see Odyssey's. No incentive in April?
  • tripigtripig Posts: 3
    I spoke to a dealer in Illinois today and was told the 2500 is still in effect, along with the 2.9/3.9 financing. This will be my thrid Odyssey and I can't believe these prices and financing deals!

    They are always expensive when compare to any dealers in chicago area. They are dont care! My research show that no matter what you buy from them odyssey, pilot can get better price somewhere else by margin of $500-1000 less.
    So dont waste your time there.

    Hi All Chicago folks,
    I am planning to buy EX-L No DVD and No Navi. I have been doing research for a while and found that no matter what type of incentive or promo in the market, I am getting quite the same selling price in the chicago area (Except valley honda, which is always higher :mad: ).
    So, help me, If any one out there got better than $27000.00 (selling price, destination included), please let me know the dealer and sales person. So far I received $27175 selling price. Is this the best out there?

    Is Honda combining the 2500 incentive with the 2.9% financing?
  • Thanks for the info Cutetotoro79. After reading your deal, I swung by Russell and Smith after work and made a deal on an EX-L. I drove it home tonight but need to go back to the store with my wife tomorrow to finalize all the paperwork. It took me 30 minutes to have the internet salesman evaluate my trade-in, and I ended up getting a deal that was about $750 less than the best offer I received from 4 other dealerships in town that I had shopped prior to this.

    With it including the trade-in, the pricing "deal" I got is very subjective (rob peter to pay paul effect), but basically it extrapolates to $27,870 + TT&L for a presumptive drive-out of $29,862 OTD without the trade-in. Granted, this is not as awesome of a deal as seen elsewhere on the forum, but again, there was a trade-in involved which makes it hard to compare apples to apples.

    Bottom line though is that Russell and Smith's pricing seems to be the most competitive I have seen of the Honda dealers on the West side of Houston.

    Thanks again for the post!

    Can you let me know the best price provided to you for an '09 Odessey (EX model)? I am looking to buy one ASAP.

    Also, any contact information of the sales person will be greatly appreciated.
  • I did not really price out the EX at the dealerships - we were mainly looking at the EX-L and EX-L+RES

    I can't specify a sales person due to forum rules, but I ended up getting my best deal at Russell and Smith Honda on the South side of 610.

    Based off of the forums, it looks like you "win" when you are sitting $3,500 to $4,000 below invoice before TT&L is added on (6.25% + $250 in Texas)

    Unfortunately (based on my recent shopping experience in town) the Houston dealers don't appear to be quite that desperate yet. If you take invoice (from edmunds TMV pricing), & subtract $2,500 dealer cash, anything you get below that seems to be getting a "good deal" in the Houston Area.

    If you are not trading in anything, it really simplifies the shopping process, and you may be able to pull off a better deal over-all by soliciting bids from dealerships far and wide.

    My 2 cents.
  • I agree...after getting quotes by all the dealership in Houston and Austin, I don't think they are that desperate. Honda of Katy first quoted me the MSRP! I laughed and asked them if they thought I was stupid. Their replied, they only had 2 right away, I knew that they weren't desperate. So, I think I will wait and see what will happen.

    Thanks for the information. I got email quotes for around 24,000 for EX model. I will see if I can lower it a bit when I meet them in next few days.
  • fmichaelfmichael Posts: 95
    Nice work ;)

    So tell me - did ya get an internet price 1st, or did ya go in the dealership, and negotiate with a salesperson?

    I've gotten a quote for an EX $24,237 that's good until April 30th...It's a pretty good deal, but I'm wondering if I should offer less?

    Thanks for the information. I got email quotes for around 24,000 for EX model. I will see if I can lower it a bit when I meet them in next few days

    I'm wondering if I should try the "playing hard to get" approach with the quotes I've gotten from the internet...Having the sales staff believe that I'd prefer to wait until September/October (which to a certain extent is true), BUT - I'll buy today @ "X" price.

    Just not overly fond of negotiating.
  • It never hurts to play hard to get. Just straight out tell them..."I would like to buy the minivan, however, only if it's an awesome deal. I'm not in a rush and willing to wait". Houston is not offering awesome deals that I have read on forums. I told them I will buy one today at $34K OTD for the touring, no PAX. No takers yet.
  • Awesome! We gave our salesmen a pretty hard time and made him wait awhile before making our final decision. His sales manager and him never budged on price and since it was the lowest in the Houston area, I figured it was a fair deal. I visited almost all the Honda dealerships in Houston and Russell&Smiith gave me the best price. Good luck with your new vehicle- we are falling in love with ours more and more each day.
  • fmichaelfmichael Posts: 95
    I hear ya - that's how I prefer to negotiate; make them feel I'm looking, but not just yet ready unless a great deal is available.

    With Honda cutting production starting May 1st - will the numbers of Oddy's be reduced considerably this summer? Right now just may be a really good time to buy.
  • vamcvamc Posts: 5
    I just got the internet prices today. I am yet to go and do inperson negotiations. I think if I am agressive I can get another few hundred dollars off.

    Gunn Honda in San Antonio seems to have very good pricing. You might want to check the forums at the Temple of Vtec ( There is someone there that has always given me good information.
  • Sounds about right. Honda of Katy was my first stop, and they love to play their games and posture for a stronger negotiating position. They also seem to have an official policy of hog-tying you in their showroom for hours and hours as they make their SLOW & relatively weak offers. Of the 6 dealerships I dealt with, Russell and Smith was the best experience, Sterling McCall, Gillman, Goodson fell in the middle and Honda of Katy was by far the worst sales experience. I contacted David McDavid, and the online salesman approached things a bit too much like Honda of Katy style of "salesmanship," so I didn't bother stopping by. In Honda of Katy's defense, I heard they were a good dealership to shop at when they first opened, but apparently a new sales manager took charge, bringing in a lot of his salesmen and tactics from his previous city. Things apparently went downhill after that.

    I recommend trying a few other dealerships around Houston before giving up. While I don't think you will get the $4,000 below invoice pricing found in other cities like Boston, I think $3,000 below invoice may be within your reach if you play your cards right.
  • fmichaelfmichael Posts: 95
    I'd offer $24,000 thru their website, & see what their response is...Stay firm on your offer...Me thinks they'll accept it, & IMO it's a good deal.
  • You're very right about Honda Of Katy. I was already irrated with them that they refused to give me a quote via phone or email. You had to come in and waste hours there before pricing is even discussed. Plus, my sales person didn't know anything about the Odyssey. She asked me what I wanted, I told her, I'm looking for a white Touring, without Pax. She then asked me what options I wanted in the Touring...nav/dvd..etc. I told her, the Touring comes with all of that, I just have to pick a color. She didn't believe me, so I spend 5 minutes debating with her! How frustrating! I had a trade in (or just curious on what they appraised my car for), and when I wasn't happy with the OTD price, and wanted my car key back, they won't give it back to me! I had to wait for like 45 minutes and speak to the sales director then an assistant manager. I told them, just give me back my car keys, I'm not motivated by their pricing. So, beware...if you're planning to come to Katy of Honda, make sure you have lots of patience and hours to kill.

    You're right, by far, Russell and Smith given me the best quote.
  • Anyone looking for or having recently bought an Oddy touring w/o Pax 2009 in St Louis? What kind of price did you pay? Please help.
