It is amazing how many people want to blame somebody else for their own incompetence. This customer called in about an Odyssey EXL not an EXLRN.
When he mentioned his price from Coleman Honda was $28384 (WHICH IS $450 higher than invoice less the $2000 dealer cash that was available) we agreed that would be able to be beat by $200!
When the customer walked into the dealership and said he was here for the EXLRN and why wouldn't we want to honor the price. Come on guys....your own research here on Edmunds says you can not buy the car for $28184, yet you want to blame the dealership for your confusion!
Very simple...DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!!!!!!!! And you won't feel the need to disclose to the world your own inability to understand simple numbers!

Could someone please tell me how long does it take to receive the "Title" on your vehicle? I bought my van in mid May in Washington, and I haven't received the title yet. I got the plates 3 weeks ago but still not title. Do I have to do something else, like fill out an application form?

You would have filled out a title application at the dealer. Call them ASAP to make sure it's been filed and find out the status.

Here is the problem. It is because this Eric failed to email the customer detailed final quote in B&W, now blame the customer was in confusion. Let the other buyers judge whether trick or not.
.... i had asked Erick to send me in an email, the prices for each item that they would charge to drive the car out of the Lot. Erick always refused to provide me with something in an email. ....
#19658 of 30569 $2000 Dealer Cash and 2.9% finance rate
Jul 04, 2008 (3:44 pm)
New to the site. Should I expect to get the $2000 dealer cash as well as the 2.9% finance rate? Also, is $24,700 before tax and plates a fair number for an EX?

I am about to begin shopping for an EX-L in the New Orleans area. Does anyone have any recent experience with prices and at which dealerships in this area? I also travel to Baton Rouge and Alexandria, LA and Conway, AR often and could purchase there if the price was better. Any recommendations or experience to share?

My guess is, honda might be adding another $1000 to the incentive or 0% financing. Anyway we will know that in couple of days.

Best quote we got is 27K+TTL after three days of rather uncomfortable negotiations. Only one dealer threw in 26.8K+TTL but it was for a demo unit. Maybe there are better deals out there but we are out of time and patience. Good luck boys and girls. We have learned a lot from the here and we have easily saved a few hundred dollars. Thank you all.

All good points and more relevant if you are only considering Ody.
As for me, these cars are mostly about the same. I would be fine with a toyota, mazda, nissan, or dodge. (btw, Mazda5 is more popular now days for its 4cyl engine and milage.)
I just don't see the point of being bullied by dealers or Honda for that matter.
And if you have dealt with Honda, you will quickly find out that Honda is no different from any other car company. Their short sighted, sales driven business has no regard for its customer after the sale. Take it from me and countless others who have direct experience and posted their dissappointment on this and other sites.
One other point I would like to make on this forum is this....
It is widely accepted they often decieve and in some cases they out right lie and because of this everyone is very cautious and guarded initially when dealing with car salesman. But most people quickly dismiss their common sense and believe anything and everything they are told by these same salesman about incentives, deals, fees, fair values, trade-in, etc.....
Just remember who you are dealing with and if you have time read the piece done by edmunds and their investigative reporter.
my 2 cents....

I am not sure of the Costco Leasing, but the Costco buying program was $300 over invoice in San Diego. Not even close to the deal I received in the end. I wouldn't put too much faith in the program with the current incentives and markdowns going on.
