Honda Odyssey, Van
#19402 of 30568 Honda Odyssey EX in Memphis, TN
Jun 06, 2008 (5:09 am)
I just closed on a deal last night! I ended up paying $25,685.80 ($25,485.80 + 200.00 to transport the color vehicle that I wanted from another state). After TTL, the total came to $26,020. I also negotiated getting $2,000 for my 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager that had 182,000 miles on it. Granted it was in excellentent condition, but it was still old with lots of miles. I think that I got a great deal!
#19403 of 30568 I don't think Odyssey is 2-3 K cheaper

I am evaluating both odyssey EX-L RES & Sienna XLE with QJ extra value package. This configuration is comparable with leather, moonroof and DVD rear entertainment system.
With this configuration, price of Sienna came to 29,359 without rebate but with 0% APR. If I don't care about financing it is another $1,500 less. This is very close to price of Odyssey. My local dealer has quoted me $100 below invoice. With this price, I am leaning towards Sienna.

My apologies I did not intend to suggest the current difference is that great. I did a quick comparison and agree the XLE with QJ package looks very close on equip and price.
Sienna has power liftgate and HO EXL-Res does not (according to Edmunds). XLE (QJ) has 7 seats HO EXL-Res has 8. My comment related to a my earlier purchases involving a new 2005 EXL-Res to a comparable Sienna and a 2000 Accord SE to a comparable Camry. All this is irrelvant now if the dealer prices are that comparable in the current environment.
Looks like you got a great deal congrats.

Updating my own post. I have a written quote for $31,000 out the door. I didn't get a breakdown of prices, but according to my calculations with a tax rate of 8.5%, it comes down to about $27,650 base before destination, doc, dmv, tax or any other fees. I have at least one dealer, maybe two, who say they will beat $31K. Now, if there are other Bay Area residents who are definitely looking to buy a EX-L w/ RES soon, I can use you as leverage to get an even lower price for us. I think I've done all the heavy lifting already.

I'm from Bay Area. I got a quote for $30,950 OTD price (cash only deal) last week for an EXL with RES from a bay area dealer. If a group buy is more economical, count me in!

I am planning to buy a Ody with NAV / RES . I received a quote of $ 31,000 incl destination $ 635 + TTL.
Is this a good price. Also need some advice : Can i buy the 2008 now or wait until the release of 2009. By the way when is the 2009 expected.
thanks for your comments

You did fine - a classic example of an overallowance on a trade being made up by higher price on the new vehicle.

I also live in the Bay Area, and am looking for a 2008 HO EX-L with RES as well; please count me in if I can use you as leverage to get an even lower price for us. BTW, has anyone used Auto Advocates to help find a car before? My car got totaled, and this is a free service from AAA if your car is totaled. Otherwise it would cost $250. Please share your experiences with me if anyone has used them before. Thanks.
