I could find no other place to poat my message!
Owners of 1999 - 2004 complain that the new designs should have middle windows in the sliding doors. 2005-2008 owners complain that instead of the middle windows there should be windows in the rear that open the same as in the 1999-2004 editions.
Some what rotating seats the same as the Chryslers; but there is no leg room for a minivan ( I had a full size travel van with this conveneience). Chryslver 07 almost lost their top minivan sales to Honda. I forcast that Chrysler will drop out of the minivan market.

Do you think you will get a lower price by presenting another person's quoted price?
I am still in the purchase process, but I got a dealer's info from someone who posted on here about their good deal. I went to that dealer, and they gave me the same offer. I also took that quote and sent it to a different dealer. They were able to beat it, so the original dealer (I told them the other dealer would beat it) will be throwing in their service coupon book plus a better deal on the tradein than carmax was offering.
So it is possible, and in my case probable, that I will get a better price because I used a quoted price on here.

That looks like a pretty cool deal.....did the EXL include RearEntertainment and Navigation?
Could you please share the dealer's information, sales person's name/number and email it to me at chamataka_99yahoo.com
Thanks in advance....!!

I do agree with you that taking evidence of a good deal certainly helps motivate a dealer to improve their offer. I think the point the OP was making, is that many of those "good deals" were obtained via the Honda.com website, using the 'request a quote' option. That is how I obtained all of my quotes, and I believe what the OP was implying...
That said, I DO see value in getting a quote emailed if it is possibly in a different region. Example: My low quote was in Houston. I emailed my quote to someone in Ohio. Based on my email, the Ohio dealer lowered their price by $600 ! So in this case, I can see how an email "cuts to the chase" in getting a competitive number in lieu of the donkeypunch approach.

I noticed the same thing.. My friends who bought 07 had logo on the mat in the front .. 08 floor mats definitely look cheap .. they already look worn out after just 3weeks of normal use

I bought 2008 EX-L with RES/NAV in 3rd week of March for $32,800 OTD + wheel locks from Stevens Creek Honda. You should also try Autowest Honda, Fremont. I would have gone with Autowest honda if they had the color I was looking for, nimbus gray
Hope this helps

Cost on a 2008 Odyssey Touring is only $34,301 (destination included). Only other cost would be tax at 6.25% and licence fee of $30. Is this a good price? This must be with the 2000 incentive.

Hi I am new here. We are in the process of leasing a 2008 Odyssey sometime this week. We have been getting lots of prices and I just wanted to run them by you all. I am not very good at this, but have been reading a lot of your posts and think I may be getting a ok deal. They quoted me $439 per month (3 yr lease 12,000 miles zero out of pocket) for the EX-L RES (no navi) and the purchase price is $28,730. Does the monthy payment sound right based on the selling price?
