#2 of 30025 Just received 2001 in Austin Texas
Sep 12, 2000 (7:43 pm)
I took delivery on September 11 of a 2001 Odyssey EX EG that I ordered on August 21. I paid MSRP + TTL for a total of about $28,700 (the dealership provided fabric and paint protection). I dealt with Tanja Allen of Cleo Bay Honda in Killeen, Texas and she delivered the car to my house because I did not have a trade-in. It was absolutely painless and I never had to go to the showroom. Ms. Allen never tried to have me buy any dealer add-ons. She only offered an extended warranty 7yr/100,000 miles for $1100 It's a great car and we are enjoying it.
#3 of 30025 reply to 1999 Oddy
Sep 13, 2000 (1:01 am)
I ma in NJ by NY state line. I was at a local dealer yesterday who has a brand new zero (0) mile 2000 LX leftover they will sell for sticker of around 23,400. A 1999 at 25,000 is absurd. I deposited a 2001 ex 2 days ago and will be taking delivery in 10-14 days. The dealer called today with VIN # and said once they get the vin# and paperwork expect delivery within 2 weeks. I only paid 26,840 (MSRP) for a 2001 EX. Bottom line, forget about a 1999 for that price. In fact I will sell you my 2001 for 28000 prior to me driving it if you like to overpay.

Please reread my post - the dealer is offering the 1999 EX for 22,595, not 25,000. The 25,000 figure is what showed up as the retail value when I tried to get a price from Edmunds. It doesn't make sense to me that the retail value of a 1999 is more than what the original list price - that is why I posted that message.
Thanks for your reply though.

Sorry - my last post - that should read 'LX' not 'EX'
#6 of 30025 delivery concerns
Sep 13, 2000 (2:47 am)
Yesterday, I paid a deposit for the privilege of being placed on a rather long waiting list for a 2001 EX mesa beige in Idaho. The waiting list is for various colors. I agreed to pay MSRP plus TT & dock fee. "Possible" delivery is late November. I'm sorry to say that the salesman was a little shifty. Before he realized I knew the MSRP of the EX, he actually lied about it. After reading recent posts, I'm scared. Will I ever get my Odyssey? Is mesa beige unpopular and hard to get? Was my negotiating okay? Will I be passed over on the waiting list? Have I been fleeced in a way I cannot even imagine yet? Should I call and bug them every few weeks? Am I driving myself crazy for nothing? Help.
#7 of 30025 Ody availability
Sep 13, 2000 (3:25 am)
This Odyssey thing is definitely affecting me...driving down the interstate today I saw a auto truck trailer hauling a load of Odysseys! My mind went a little crazy and I thought imagine if all the people on this site could get a hold of that truck and push the dealers to negotiate a bit...started cracking up at the site of it:) Something is up as we got a call that ours is in and we only put the deposit in Sat. Beige was my first choice, but silver is coming in so...

We bought our car at Jim Sigel in Grants Pass. It was for MSRP, but my friend, who is buying an LX, says she is getting hers for $23,300, which is under MSRP. I think they made a mistake when giving her that price. I guess she will find out. Or maybe the LX version is not as popular, so they charge less.
When we picked up our van, the salesman told us that the owner had decided to raise the price to $1,000 over MSRP for the 2001 Odysseys from now on. Still might be worth a try to get one there for MSRP, though.
Also, the dealership in Klamath Falls called us the day our van came in and told us they also had a 2001 SS EX if we were interested.
The Odysseys are out there, if you are in the right place at the right time. We tried Portland and had much better luck in smaller towns for price and availability.
#9 of 30025 Buying locally VS buying for less ???
Sep 13, 2000 (9:46 pm)
I am in DC Metro area and I got a deal from a dealer in Columbus, OH, who offers Ody for MSRP but since I come from DC (about 400 miles), he would waive the 440 transportation charges. Is it worth to take the deal (Considering wear and tear etc)? Is there any disadvantages in buying it from a dealer who is located so far?
#10 of 30025 Cost of Leather seats
Sep 13, 2000 (9:48 pm)
What is the nominal cost for upgrading to leather seats? My dealer here says $1700 to add leather. Is it OK?
