    Thanks for your info. I still have MD license. Maybe I can postpone my purchase and change my license to VA first - to pay less tax and proc fees.

    My previous post 22821 had the quote info for EXL RES NAV
    $29,580 before any fees, and OTD price of $32,565. No trade in.

    Did you negotiate for anything additional to come with your van? (appearance package, maintenance ..?) did they throw in anything?

    Hi pp ng2,

    Give me your email instead.
    By purchasing in Bethesda, MD, you get free lifetime oil changes for your minivan.

    Hi md09,

    The model I bought 2009 Odyssey EXL RN (sterling grey/grey). Only 1 mile at dealership, when stepped out the dealership, only got 2 miles on it!

    Tell me your OTD price (including taxes, fees, options if any) for EXL RN or Touring without PAX.
    Give me your email and I'll tell you more detail info. Thanks!

    Hi pp ng2,

    Forgot to mention my OTD price: ~$31880.
  • Hi All,

    Thanks to everyone on this board for the invaluable information! I had been shopping for my new Odyssey for over a month, but had run into inventory problems here in Texas for the Touring models without PAX. I wanted a Black/Black Touring and there ended up only being 3 in the entire state with only one dealer that had one on order. I contacted (via email) dealers all over the entire state, but concentrated mostly in the DFW, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston areas.

    I had a lot of difficulty negotiating to get anywhere near the prices that many of you have gotten back East, but in the end was very happy with the deal I got. Like I said it took me over a month of going back and forth with multiple dealers to find somebody that was willing to negotiate. I even considered getting a different color, but the dealers wouldn't budge on the prices and I didn't want to settle for a color that wasn't my first choice. The EXL + NAV/RES is a great vehicle as well, but the memory seats and black leather interior were a must have for us, so that only left us the Touring model.

    We ended up buying from Fernandez Honda in San Antonio and had a smooth buying process. We live in Austin, so it wasn't a far drive. Before we agreed to drive down over Memorial weekend, I asked for a buyers order (signed by the manager) that stated the agreed upon sales price and the breakdown of all fees and TT&L with a total OTD price. Also got the loan application completed and faxed back to them ahead of time. Doing all of this saved us a good bit of time once we got to the dealer. Total time took us a little over an hour - not too bad!

    The business manager who handled our financing actually got us a slightly better rate than the 3.9% that AHFC was offering through a local Texas credit union - 3.5%. Not a huge difference, but we saw no reason not to take advantage of it. We declined all the extra coverages including the Honda Care (their price for the 6year/80,000 was $1200), but we may still look at purchasing an extended warranty through one of the dealers online that have been mentioned in this forum...

    Here's the numbers:

    Sales Price = $34,700
    Sales Tax (6.25%) = $2168.75
    Inventory Tax = $76.34
    Title/Licensing/Inspection = $136.91
    Doc Fee = $50
    OTD = $37132.00

    Thanks again and best of luck to those of you still searching for the best deal (especially if you are in Texas!). :)

    Great deal. What is the name of the credit union that gave 3.5%?
  • expoguide1expoguide1 Posts: 16
    Hi Lyao, if you don't mind sharing info on where you got this excellent deal you can reach me at siennaorodyssey @ gmail dot com . I also live in MD and am looking at the EXL with NAV and RES best price I have so far is ~32,800 OTD, so your price is quite a bit of savings!

    I am also a Texas shopper and VERY VERY envious of the deals being found on the East and West coasts!!!! No deals like that around here (at least that I could find at the 9 dealerships I talked to!). Also, I had a trade, so I needed to do it all as local as possible so we just shopped San Antonio, Austin, San Marcos, etc.

    Final deal:

    Gillman Honda on IH35 in Selma (I also spoke with Fernandez Honda and they seemed nice, honest and ready to deal, but they did not have the color I wanted).

    EXL in Black, with window tint (value of tint I'm guessing was 200-ish???)

    $28,600 sales price including destination
    +$50 doc fee
    +$55.16 dealer inventory tax
    +$132.55 title/licensing/inspection

    I had a trade so my tax was only based on the difference between it and the new vehicle.

    Short of driving to New Jersey or California, I think this is the best I could do - and I love my new van! :)

    Couldn't find reasonable deals here in Vegas area. Lowest quoted price for 2009 new Honda Odyssey EX-L RES is $29700 (includes dest charge/internet price) + taxes, title, etc. I have seen as low as $28100 (Dest charge included) posted here mostly in the East Coast. One CA dealer quoted me for $29200 (Internet price). Any advise, tips etc...ius highly appreciated. :
  • Security Service FCU - was the credit union that we financed through.

    Hi, I am very interested in getting the name of you sale person and dealership.
    Hopefully, I can strike the same deal.

    please email me ducluu at

  • mkn4mkn4 Posts: 2
    Thanks poster. Got the exact same deal and drove EX in slate green today.

    It wasn't easy to find a dealer to match the deal. Jim Coleman; straight no - not even close. They knew immediately that I am talking about the deal posted on "edmunds". They said that was one time april deal; they cannot do it again.
    Heritage Honda - straight No.
    Norrish; they agreed for $100 more, $25349 OTD. Later on they started pulling all the BS. They adv. the service plan of 9.99 oil change for life; they wanted $150 more for that. I refused the plan and said ok, give me without plan, then they said that the color we want doesn't have mud gurad and they won't put it. We said then give different color with mud guard; then they wanted $150 more. Bottom line they wanted $150 more on the top of $100. I will never deal with them; I used to do all my service at Norris, but they didn't behave right.
    Then tried Brown - over the internet; but they refused to do any dealer exchange and I have to pick from there in stock. I didn't find the color I wanted; so I took the same rate to ODonnel - Nope. Tried another one is Bel Air - Nope....went back and got from Brown.

    Thanks poster.

    Picked up my Ody yesterday. Slate Green Metallic. The dealer was straight forward, non-aggressive, and spent 1.5 hours time with them. Overall I had recv'd quotes from four dealers, but could not get the same pricing as I have read on the west coast and north east. The best quote was at $29,610 (including delivery & accessory installation).

    Breakdown as follows:
    Sale Price $29,610.00
    8.75% Tax $ 2,590.88
    Doc Fee $ 15.00
    Temp Tag $ 4.00
    Title/Reg. $ 212.50
    OTD Price $32,432.38

    Put $5K down and with 3.9% APR, my notes are $504 for 60 months.

    The other three dealers did not consider going below $29,650 + TTL and a $295 on up Customer Service Fee.

    I thought this was a fair deal, even though I was told they lost money on the sale. . . yea right.

    Thank you for sharing the info! I had actually called the dealership & asked them the same. They said they didn't know anything about a 3.5% rate. These forums keep those car dealers honest. Oops, can you say "car dealer" and "honest" in the same sentence? Thanks again!

    Hi Everyone

    Im in the market for one of these cars. Im in the northeast (NY) and I am willing to drive to NJ NY OH DE MD or wherever else to get a good deal.

    Has anyone bought one in the last few days? I would appreciate knowing what you paid for it, and if the deals are still on.

  • Try Spreen Honda,Loma Linda, CA. You may find the deal of your interest. Thanks to the one member of this forum I bought my Odyssey EX-L at 26594 including destination + TTL. The dealer told me that I will get upto $500 check after my 1st payment.
  • cwsjmmcwsjmm Posts: 6
    Does anyone out there have a recommended dealer in Philly or NJ area (am willing to travel ~100 mi) for best price on these vehicles? Would you please share your price and experience? Thanks!
  • Alright. So from my previous blogs, you could tell that we wanted a 2009 Honda Odyssey EX, but today after getting to our local dealer (Near Pittsburgh, PA), they gave us a pretty decent deal on an EX-L . We actually got a color that the parents, and an aunt really wanted (Silver) with gray leather. I'm not sure how I feel about the deal. At the dealership, they kept saying that $28,304 was their best deal, and that they wanted to make a 200 dollar profit. We sat there and negotiated for like 5 hours saying that we wanted to start with $27,000, because I saw a lot of deals like this on this website. They kept finding loop holes! It was ridiculous! They kept saying that this was a really good price. They went down to $28,400 and we went to $27,500. We almost walked out, and then another family was looking at the car we were looking at which was not the color we wanted, but was very close of Slate Green. Why do they call it Slate Green? It doesn't even look green! So they were like you have like 5 minutes to decide because that family might buy it. We offered them $28,000 as our final price and they went in to discuss it. They came back like 5 minutes later saying that the car was just sold to the other family, that was willing to pay $28.504. You all should have seen the look on dad's face! Then the sales person immediately caught himself and said that he had a few other EX-L's on his other lot and he would take us to see a 2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L that he would sell for $28,000. Another benefit was that he said that if the June incentives were higher, he would give us the difference. (So like if the June incentives were $4000 and the May incentives are $2500, then he would pay us back $1500) We thought that it was a nice deal and it looked really nice and it was nice so we bought it.

    MSRP $33,825
    Invoice $30,485
    May Incentives $2500
    =200(dealer profit)
    =$28,000 (after negotiations)

    6% Pennsylvania Sales Tax=$1680
    new license plates-201
    Final Price with no trade in=$29,811

    Sorry if this is confusing. If anyone has any questions, just ask. I actually want to help people get good deals, instead of letting Honda dealers find loop holes for not getting them.

    Does anyone know what your credit score has to be to qualify for the 3.9% financing? We are looking to buy an Odyssey and want to know if we will qualify before walking in the door!

  • Purchased Honda Odyssey EXL-Res & Navi in Slate Metallic Green w/ Gray interior. Bob Rohrman, West Lafayette. John Mercer was my salesperson (awesome). The Finance Guy - pay close attention.

    $30,850 (inc. destination charge, mud guards, all weather floor mats & cargo tray). Does not include TTL

    Couldn't find any of the sweet deals mentioned on this forum from the east & west coasts. 3..9% financing and $2500 & 2% dealer incentives good thru 7/6.

    Anticipate the prices will drop as gas prices increases and closer to 2010.

    Hi, fellow Louisianian!

    Am I correct in assuming you got an EX-L with no RES? Or did you get the EX-L with RES for under $30,000 before TT&L?!

    We're also in LA, in Acadiana,so you may have a better perspective for us in regards to what we're looking at - but I SURE would appreciate help from everyone else who wants to chime in!

    Edmunds' TMV/ "what others are paying" price for the EX-L with RES we're looking at is $30,117 (which includes a regional adjustment of -$395, a color adj. (slate green) of -$140 and an + of the destination charge $670). We got an offer from a dealer for $30,485, so I was initially excited - until I got home and saw that some people posting in this forum got the EX-L + RES + NAVI for under $30K!!

    HOW did you guys do that!?!?!?!?! I'd love the navi, but SO don't want to pay and extra $2K for it! I'd be very happy getting the EX-L + RES as long as we're getting the best deal we can.

    I know there's a dealer incentive of $2500 which is how the EX-L drops from $32,151 invoice to $30,117, but some people are getting the NAVI for free?

    To top it off, we're considering trading in our '05 EX (no leather, no dvd), but are only going to get $11,000 if we do (Edmunds says we should get $14,000 trade in; KBB says $11,900), so we're taking a hit on that, too, but are still considering it. From what I understand, w/8.5% tax, we'd pay $33,094 w/o trade-in for the EX-L + RES (INCLUDING the tax and destination, but not the title and whatever else we'd have to pay) OR $21,149 (incl. tax + destination but not title and whatever else) if we trade in the '05.

    I'm usually a competant human being, I swear. But this is making me crazy - PLEASE HELP!!! I SO appreciate it!

    Hi bigdadi118,

    I assumed these prices only included the destination. They did not include other fees & TTL. Right?
  • bigdadi118bigdadi118 Posts: 1,207
    Right only destination charge 670 included + dealer process fee + TT&L
  • maggieraumaggierau Posts: 4
    Well...they told us that the credit score needs to be over 725 to get the 3.9%....that doesnt seem right...does anyone have a different experience. I feel like they are trying to make up some money from us since they accepted a low offer on the vehicle.
