#12133 of 30569 Bought: Odyssey EX-L In Dallas Fort Worth
Mar 27, 2006 (6:10 am)
Just purchased 06 Sage Brush Pearl EX-L at Frank Kent Honda in West Fort Worth. Dealer experience was exceptional. I had been to three other dealers and all were very high-pressure. Not this one. Frank Kent has my business in the future if I buy another Honda. Here is the breakdown in price.
Cost of EX-L: 27,708 w/destination
tint on front windows: 169 (standard on all vehicles)
Total: 27,877 + TTL
Other Dealers that would not do the deal:
David McDavid, Honda Cars of McKinney, Huggins Honda.
They all had Dealer add on packs and would not remove them or eat the cost of these to sell me the van. I walked at DMcDavid over $400!(price of add ons)
We had called ahead at Frank Kent and already agreed on a price. We were in, picked a van, tested it, filled out paper work, went with Honda Financing 4.999%, and drove out in under three hours. The Sales person told me that they dealer profited around $400. Not sure if this is accurate, but use it for future use.
One other note, Holmes Honda in Shreveport is selling all in-stock EX-L's with no dealer add-on's for: $27,558 w/ destination (check ebay). I just didn't feel like driving out there for $150.
Now, does anyone want to buy a 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 115K? just kidding....
#12134 of 30569 Bought EX-L RES in Lisle, IL
Mar 27, 2006 (8:38 am)
We just bought an EX-L RES from the Honda Superstore of Lisle in Lisle, IL. We got a sage brush pearl w/ olive interior for $29,187 (including destination) plus ttl.
The dealership was professional and straightforward to deal with.
Their quoted price was the same as Valley Honda (Aurora, IL), but they got the deal when Valley reneged on their trade-in offer. Valley quoted $10k for trade-in after a full inspection, then a week later would only offer $8k when it came time to do the deal; same car, same salesman. Oh well.
Thanks to everyone on this forum for sharing your info, it saved me a lot of headache and a lot of dough!
#12135 of 30569 Simple Question
Mar 27, 2006 (8:46 am)
How much (if anything) above invoice should I be paying for a 2006 EX-L w/o DVD or NAVI?

Depends on where you are...
but here in SF Bayarea....which has higher cost and therefore higher prices....the dealers everywhere say they can get me a EXL for less than invoice....since there are more to choose from.
EXL with Nav and RES are only 10% of all shipments...and are in hotter demand....so there is less discounting here.

Thanks for the response, highender. I am in CT. Have others experienced below-invoice pricing for a 2006 EX-L?

Isn't $27,708 the invoice price before the $550 destination charge? How are they selling cars for invoice w/o destination?

My point was that you can not get around destination, however, you can TRY to buy it for 550 dollars less.
#12141 of 30569 Purchased EX-L w/ RES
Mar 27, 2006 (5:53 pm)
We just got EX-L with RES from Crystal Lake Honda. As was mentioned here a few times they do give the best deals. The best deal I got from a local dealer was over $2,000 more.
Crystal Lake gave us a quote over the phone, we drove 3 hours to their dealership and ended up buying it for $28,996.25 + $57.33 doc fee + $10 license fee.
The overall experience at the dealership was great, fast and efficient. The only thing is that the car is missing wireless headsets for the RES. I guess we were too excited to check and make sure there were there. The sales person said they'll mail them to us. So I guess we'll be totally happy if they follow through.
Thanks everyone for posting here. It's great knowing what people are paying before going to the dealership.
Oh and btw, we are loving the mini van

HI...I was wondering, does your minivan have a navigation ?
Over here, there was no way any dealer will sell for that price. Well, at least not now.
I found my headphones beneath the middle row carpets...inside the lazy susan secret compartment....
Oh...sssshhhh....we don't want tooo many people knowing about this...
