2013 and earlier Honda Odyssey Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Does anyone know if Honda is going to have a finance special for the upcoming July 4th weekend like the deal during the Memorial Day weekend in Southern California area? My husband's car got total lost past Sunday and we're looking for a 2011 Odyssey EX-L w/ Nav. Recently, Honda doesn't have finance special on Odyssey and they said the APR is 2.99% for 60 months with good credit. We want to find out if anyone knows if Honda is going to have finance special for the July 4th weekend thus we can wait for that. Also, California may be increasing the sales tax and license/registration fees again soon, we'd better hurry to get a car. Thanks for your help!

    I have never met a dealer that would talk about upcoming sales. If you can afford to wait, I would say hold off until July 4th to see what's offered. The EX-L's are beautiful. I love mine. I bought it May 28th. It's the one with Nav. Dark Cherry Pearl.

    You might experience a problem with the XM Radio receiver cutting off so you're getting no signal, even on an interstate. My dealer said he's replace 4 already. Guess mine makes number 5.

    What year was the EX-L with RES? Where did you price it @ 31980?
    thank you.

    Wow you are giving up a Lexus RX350 for a Honda? I know this is the Odyssey forum but have you cross shopped the Sienna? The ride, quietness, and reliability should be similar to your Lexus. We owned both so talking from experience.

    I'm a NC buyer that was looking for the best Out-the-Door price on a 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/RES. The best I received, and the one I went for, was from Steve Padgett's Danville Honda in Danville, VA. Sorry, but I don't have it itemized. This price includes tags, title, taxes, etc.

    Does that OTD price include any accessories like wheel locks, splash guards?

  • dtoccidtocci Posts: 3
    I'm in central NC too. What's the salesmen you work with at Padgett's? Was it a haggle-free / internet deal or did you have to work for it?

    I got a great deal from these guys at Fladeboe Honda. 29,150 was the final price for my EX. We saved almost 3 grand. I emailed all of local dealerships over the course of 2 weeks, and I kept on getting better and better offers. For the last few days, 29,400 was the lowest, but finally one dealership said they would give me an extra $250 off. I went to Fladeboe and asked them to match it because its right near my house and they did.

    However, they did quote me above MSRP on accessories. I believe they do that to make a little extra on the side. I called back the parts department a few days later and the prices were below MSRP, which made me a little upset. Good thing I didn't buy any accessories yet.
  • Can you let me know what dealership and salesperson you worked with for that price? Thanks!
  • philsguyphilsguy Posts: 3
    No, it does not include any accessories.
  • philsguyphilsguy Posts: 3
    It was an internet/email negotiation process. Really, I didn't haggle down on price b/c their offer was the best among about 15 I had received. The only time I had to really get firm was in my refusal to put down a $500 deposit for them to look for the color I wanted. No way I was going to do that. Let them find the car first, then I'll put down the deposit to do the dealer transfer.

    I was happy with the deal I got at Chapman Honda in Tucson, AZ. (It was worth having it shipped to Albuquerque, NM- it saved me $1350 even with shipping costs.) Best deal I got when checking dealerships in ABQ, Phoenix and Tucson

    EX-L Taffeta White
    $32,935 (includes destination and $350 shipping charge to ABQ)

    no wheel locks, splash guards, or extra tinting had to be added
  • I have been casually looking for a Odyssey Elite, my first vehicle in some 20 years (I've had company cars up until now), both in store and online. My husband suggested I get a price via Costco and the very next day I got the lowest price any dealership would give me, $41,436. I narrow my search to 2 dealerships and they suggested, if I can get a price that low then they'd go with it too. I'm also getting a discounted price for aftermarket accessories (ie. tow/hitch kit) without needing to haggle.
    I'd start my search here and THEN use that number to see if you can get a better deal. Keep in mind, $41,436 is still a pretty good markup from dealer cost and whatever other kickback/incentives are offered.....

    Hi all, after many emails, my sister in law and I lucked into a alabaster silver odyssey touring at Freeman Honda. We paid $40,887 + Tax, Title, and Registration. No hassles when we turned down the extended warranty and lo-jack. Car was washed and came with a full tank of gas.

    Most of the Dallas dealers are still quoting either MSRP or higher than MSRP. They're justifying this to the demand and the tsunami in Japan. When I asked why then do they have EX-Ls despite the tsunami, a lot of them evaded the question.

    Ola was our salesperson and he gave us excellent service. I guess purchasing a touring can happen, but luck has a whole lot to do with it.

    Good luck everyone!
  • Hey - yes we drove both the Sienna and the Odyssey on the very same day. Initially I felt sure I wanted the Sienna because I have owned 5 Toyota's in the past and I think they look nicer on the outside. But the interior of the Sienna was cheap, cheap, cheap looking and we were test driving a higher end model. The dash looked like plastic, the seats were not comfortable at all and the roar of the engine was awful. Now my husband thought it sounded good (men) and he also thought it had more pick me up which it does. The model Sienna we were test driving also did not have a fold down mid section on the 2nd row and our son really liked that in the Odyssey. I also wanted a blue van and right now Toyota does not even offer a blue one. We left the Toyota dealership and went right back to look at the Odyssey again and my husband agreed that it looked and felt much nicer than the Sienna. To be quite truthful - I have never really been very pleased with my Lexus. I LOVED my Toyota Highlander way better. Thanks for the response.
  • We just got our quote and I noticed that they want $189 for splash guards but the honda site lists them for $72. I also like the door visors but those are $252 and I like the look of the body side molding but that is anther $205. Anyone had any luck getting a dealer to throw these in for free (I know, nothing is really free). Just thought I would ask. Thanks

    EX-L RES
    MSRP $36,830
    Sale price $34,722
    Mud guards $189
    + tax, DMV fees, Doc fee for total out the door price of $36,259

    I have a quote for 2011 Odyssey EXL with RES for $34,106 plus dealer fee of $250 and taxes. I have a 2008 Odyssey EXL with RES that I am looking to trade, needs about $500 in body work, and has 46,000 miles on it. Any idea if that is a good price? Also, any idea what I can expect on a trade. I haven't told the dealer yet that I have a trade.

    Please let me know. Thank you in advance for your help.
  • Wow, I wish I could get that price here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I really wonder if I should just wait until prices drop. I can't imagine that the demand for large vehicles could be sustained at these gas price levels.

    Hi nayigadi,

    I had a question on how could you do that transaction from TX and bought the car in NJ? don;t you have to be present at the dealership to sigh off the contracts and all the papers?

    please see if you could share some more information!
  • I am trying to negotiate an Odyssey Ex or Ex-L for my parents in WPB, FL. Here is the best that i have received so far. I think these prices are pretty stiff.

    MSRP - $31,225
    Invoice - $28,291
    OFFER - $30,480 plus $810 destination and taxes etc

    MSRP - $34,725
    Invoice - $31,454
    OFFER - $33,880 plus $810 destination and taxes etc

    I had hoped that I could get much closer to invoice at the end of the 2nd quarter. any thoughts?
  • I don't have all the details - but I just found out yesterday that Honda is supposed to be offering the 0.9 starting today. I am trying to find out if that is 0.9 for 36 months or 60. Does anyone know?
  • What i saw was for 60 months
  • Great - thank you!!!!
  • vncavnca Posts: 1
    Below is the link that shows Honda offers 0.9% for 24-60 months from 6/24/2011 through 7/5/2011 d=53255&modelid=RL5H2BEW&sf=2&ft=1

    I live in S. Fla.
    Ody inventory seemingly has been very tight (demand and production slow down from Japan earthquake for parts to be sent here for assembly into the van), so negotiations have been tougher than normal. I have tabled my intentions till the 2012 models come out.
  • davidk12davidk12 Posts: 28
    I have also decided on that wait and see. In the mean time my 03 Odyssey is doing just fine. If things don't improve, I may end up going with a sienna.

    I just got my silver Ody EX-L. I worked with dealers in VA, NC, GA and SC. The best price I got was from Valley Honda in VA. $32500 OTD (incl 300 SC tax, 199 doc fee, and tag). however with accessories it when up to 33750 OTD and it was 330 miles away. I was able of getting close to this price locally.
    33,412 with wheel locks, splash guards, cargo tray, moonroof visor, body side moldings, roof rack and cross bass, and tint in the front windows. (249 doc fee, 300 tax, 39 tag) = 34,000 OTD with 0.9% financing.

    Just got an awesome deal for a plain EX-L (no res/no nav). I've been shopping around for 2 weeks and it's been pretty hard to find my first color choice black w/truffle interior. I was told there were only 5 available in all of SoCal as of today. Anyways, I was able to locate one with the help of a very nice employee at Honda World in Westminster. She pointed me in the right direction and gave me some excellent advice. I am very lucky to have met such a wonderful person. She didn't try to push me into a dealer trade, she just told me I should try giving the other dealership a call and even gave me a contact person at the other dealership!

    When I called Spreen Honda in Loma Linda and told them that my best offer was 32517, they said "our internet special right now is 32,097." I had them verify they had the exact color I wanted and then I drove an hour to get it. They had the car waiting for me and the entire process was extremely pleasant. I would highly, highly recommend Spreen Honda in Loma Linda and Honda World in Westminster.

    MSRP on my car was 35535. I got it for 32097. The car had 3 miles on the odometer and it still had all the packing tape on it. Black with truffle interior. I love it. Go get one!!

    Where did you get this deal (City and the dealer name)? I am in South Florida and I am looking to buy Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ RES. But due to very low inventory all the dealers are offering as much as $40,000 OTD.
