    2010 Honda Odyssey, Ridgeline, Civic Hybrid - $1500
  • Incredible price! Congratulations!!
  • Perfect example that solidifies that these VANS are not made of Gold. The dealer that tells you only MSRP for you, is a Rip-Off, Walk Away, in a Recession--it's all about putting bread on the table, and each dealer, and each salesman has different needs---so they are willing to Negotiate. Give the business to the smaller guy.

    Remember, the Pig gets Fat, and the Hog gets Slaughtered.
  • Sorry for the double post, I thought I was in the prices paid forum :)
    --------------------
    Picked up my Smoky Topaz Touring Elite from Faulkner, in Harrisburg PA a few weeks ago. They were great to work with and knew I was an informed internet customer - I had searched dealers from Northern Virginia into the Philly Metro area.

    No trade.

    MSRP $44,030 incl destination.
    Sales price $40,530, including destination

    I added roof rails, and the heavy duty mats so I am sure they made some money there. But my deal only needed minimal negotiation, and was much better than what I was seeing three weeks ago when I closed the deal (Only $1000 - $1500 off MSRP offers at that time.) The total OTD was about $44K including taxes, etc.

    Financed through the dealer (not Honda fin) at 2.49 for 60 mos.

    I am extremely pleased, and from reading other posts looks like there is a bit of competition locally as Rahal is offering great deals as well.
  • that is impressive $28,239 for a 2011 EX. too bad they are in MA.
  • got a oddyssey 2010 touring for ~34100 from garden state honda
    got that price through zag.com. it was on nov2nd. i spoke to a internet person he told me to come and the price included destination fee

    after sitting in dealer (everything empty as it was tuesday) two hours sales man told the incentive end on nov 1st . i showed some frustration and they agreed to sell it as it was promised. i have a screwed of credit so only saver is honda finance. could only get to 5.65 as i had taken additional gap warrenty for another 3k or so. good for my credit. without warrenty it was 8%.. i thought with my kids and res/nav it is better to take warrenty

    there was another buyer was told same price but when sales man found the incentive program expired, called them and increased the price by about 1000.. i think they too bought it

    earlier...
    i was dealing with a internet guy in NY area, he never gave me a quote. i went their showroom on saturday, was assigned to a completely strange sales person, starting topic with what car i want. i hate such conversation when going through internet (it happend at another dealer too). then started with msrp price as if today is nov 2009!!!. i told i can't talk such rubbish and i told my price is $32k!!!. anyway i walked out and spoke to internet person over the phone. mentioned zag.com offering 35k . they told can give it for 34999. thought it is stupid to buy from ny for the same price mentioned in zag.com.
    after i left unnecessarily he called me on my cellphone, when i picked caught police and fined for $130 :mad: should i call the internet guy and ask for this money? LOL">

    atlast my car buying era over and i am relieved. one thing for sure is when going through internet, always fix the price and go. never attend or speak internet sales people don't give a price. it shows they are not competitive at all. specially who mention they can beat anybody price.. (by $1?). it happend to me at two times

    Okay, anyone want to give me the real skinny on invoice pricing?

    I'm reading on this forum that a 2011 Touring is $36,903 invoice which is what some other sites are saying. Kelly Blue Book says invoice is $37,682 (not a small difference), while my local dealers are saying it's actually $38,051!

    Given that the Odyssey Touring is in short supply here, no one seems ready to sell one of these vans for less that $39,000!

    This seems pretty crazy to me, since a comparable Toyota (8 passenger EXL with premium package) is selling for below invoice at $36,000!

    Our issue is that we wanted a Sienna, but discovered Toyota let some learning-disabled a**hat design the LATCH placement and tethers such that you can only have one car seat tethered in the back, and it takes up two seats!

    We were hoping to get a similar Odyssey for at least close to the same price, but wanting to charge $3,000-4,000 just isn't worth it for us!

    Anyone have the real skinny on Odyssey invoice pricing so we might be able to negotiate a deal?

    Hello Everyone,

    For anyone who has purchased or Has a 2010 Honda Odyssey with VCM, the Gas Mileage is HORRIBLE....!! I run in the suburbs...not the city and the gas gauge is at half at only running 100-miles... What Gives...!!!

    Since the 2011's use the same engine, a 5-speed tranny is used on Ody's at EXL and under (you have to buy the Touring & Elite in order to get a 6-speed tranny) stupid....stupid....stupid on Honda's Part, doesn't sound like the one extra speed will make up much difference is Gas TERRIBLE...!!! :confuse:

    You can purchase a 4-cyl Toyota Sienna and they still offer a 6-speed tranny...!!! :confuse:

    I'm in Ann Arbor MI and set a wide net with Edmunds car search. And used Zag.com to see prices. Started in Oct 1. Used zip codes in: ann arbor mi, bloomfield mi, ohio, lansing, brighton. And did it all online, except I did also go into the local Honda dealer Howard Cooper. And left after they wouldnt help me out.

    Their view was busy people needed the car and were satisfied with paying a little extra. Granted their costs are a little higher because of the location so you will never get a true best deal. They were fine, sent out tons of automated emails. Good thing I sent up an email just for this purchase. So I sent them a bunch of delayed(automated) emails (see Outlook->Options->Delay Delivery). It was certainly convenient, but gosh I'll put in a few extra days of searching to save $3k.

    However, it reaches a point where you just have to buy. The prices on this thing drop week to week. But looking at the 2010 prices in September there is a limit. So obviously it's a function of time. If you want the cheapest price on '11 Ody then wait 10 yrs. Point is you got to get the best price at the time you're in need of it.

    Zag prices didnt budge until last week since the car model is new. Right now Zag price is $39,290, Avg price: $41,024. I eventually get the "great" zag price.

    Ohio had the best first prices. Ann Arbor dropped price from over MSRP $600 a day for a few days, still way over priced. Bloomfield wouldnt budge and Brighton had nothing good even though I explained to the guy that he could charge locals high amounts, but typically he would never get someone from ann arbor's business so he might as well make the sale and make a little, and give me a deal. After telling them how to run their business (they love that) it was a no go.

    At this point Honda Marysville Ohio had the best price at $38,882. They seem like a great dealer. But being a 2 hour drive I preferred something closer.

    Capital Honda in (okemos) Lansing (online) then gave me a great price at:

    Odyssey Touring '11
    $38700 (including destination)
    Free Winter Mats and Flaps
    $190 destination
    plust title/reg
    All together $41,272(no trade)

    They ordered the hard to find Smoky Topaz, got a brand spanking new one with 3 miles on it, made in Alabama and had it in 2 weeks. Drove an hour and picked it up. I highly recommend them, use zip code 48864. No hassles, no pushing nonsense dealer added junk.

    Some thoughts: If you're desperate (coming off a lease or don't have a car or your wife is 9 months pregnant) then the local guys have you. If you can wait, be patient and not rush in, and be willing to walk away then you can get a fair price.

    If I was a dealer: I would charge my locals a fair/medium/market value price. For my Internet sales for people who live > 50 minutes away I would charge them a LOW price. It's a customer you're never going to get normally, just make the sale.

    Remember the best thing they can do for you is NOT sell you the car.

    About the car: It's a sweet car, handles great, the electronics are very cool and everything seems be done right. If you can afford it then get the Touring.

    Thanks, seems you got a better deal than mine. I just bought a 2010 EXL with NAV and DVD for $32,680 plus $595 fees. Total gross price is $33,275. There is only one left with this dealer at that time, the other 2010 one left are Touring.
  • Hello,

    Is it possible if you can send me some kind of proof for the price you bought it at so I can bring to my local dealer. My dealer advertised that they can beat any price as long as I show proof. I'm planning to purchase one this weekend.

    Thanks

    i donot trust 2011 honda odyssey gas mileage and honda has been in trouble with goverment in past about wrong posting on mpg and everybody should report their mpg on edmunds so people donot get stuck with false believe on high mpg.

    mpg can be biggest reason people might be buying this van....

    thanks

    I would also like to know details and the specific dealership in Houston area. I live a few hours away but will make the drive.
  • Read the information that is provided. Destination and handling is the only thing that is different. The Monroney sticker has them added at the lower side of the sticker. Edmunds and KBB both have them correct MSRP including destination and handling. Read all the fine print and the asteriks.
  • Good deal! You got a great price. Small profit for the dealer. You limited their profit.
  • Monroney sticker lists the EPA averages. Government tested and stated. You are getting 10 MPG? Honda does not dictacte the MPG, big brother government has tested the vehicle and list the MPG.

    Bought 2011 Touring which is being built this week and arriving at dealership in a couple of weeks. Did lots of internet price requests then shopped my trade at those that were willing to deal within a 50 mile radius. When buying any car and you're trading something in you have to look at cash difference as others have noted. I used to sell cars and know that a dealer can low ball you on the new car to get you in and then make up the difference by under valuing the trade. I'd have paid sticker for the new car if they gave me silly money for my trade. I did however shop hard and got $1000 below clean NADA Trade In for my trade which was about $400 less than the best of 6 other dealers, most of whom weren't as aggressive on the new car. You could argue it was worth clean value if I'd shopped even more so I adjust below. Deal is as follows:

    MSRP: 41,535 (including dest)
    Invoice: 37,683
    Price: 36,067
    Doc Fee: 239
    Total: 36,306
    Plus Trade Adjustment: 1,000 Net: 37,306
    + Tax, Title & Plates

    Worst case view is $377 below invoice when you include all fees. Very happy with deal and dealership which I'll share after delivery.
  • Check out his earlier post in October. Missing information in this post.
  • The information on the Monroney sticker is from the EPA. Challenge it. First, you need to understand it.
