I'm in MA and also saw the EX-L for $24,988. I contacted dealer via email and was told $27,657. I wrote back asking about lower price and still waiting. I had a question for you about the financing. I read in a post to add about $1,000 to the price if you get the financing. Is that correct? Also do you have any tips on how to handle a trade that I haven't mentioned to them yet?

I am in Cary, NC.
Got it from Crown Southpoint, because I didn't like the attitude of the internet sales manager at autopark. Turned out that Crown were no saints either.. I did a second iteration of the Donkey Punch method.. using a different email.. I didn't use the first iteration properly, because I wasn't really aware of this method.. My friend advised me to request for quotes from Honda.com and go from there.. turned out to be my own version of DP. Wasn't satisfied with the second iteration either.. But lost patience and went ahead and got it. The 6800$ discount off MSRP seemed good enough. Got 4.67% financing through Costco CapOne for 60 months.. that's better than the 1000$ more at 2.9%.. or atleast www.carbuyingtips.com/Car_Loan_Calc_CE.xls said it is..
The break down is $27,936.87 for the Odyssey EX-L with DVD, Tax is $838.10, Tag $122, Doc $399.

Chat online with internet sale. There is a button on homepage.
Don't recommend a trade-in together with this promotion due to the fact that new car price is so low, trade-in is their only chance to make profit. I am sure they won't offer you top $, will be 3 to 4K less to make up the new car low offer. Might as well try to sell it on autotrader.com, cars.com, cardirect.com when you get a firm offer then get this deal later.

I think that sounds like a really good deal on the purchase side... one of the lowest I've seen.
I agree about what others are saying about the trade in issues. I might look into selling it thru CarMax - that's my only thought there.
Let us know what you end up getting!

I just spoke to the int sales mngr and he said the $24988 included dest. but it was only on certain stock #'s, colors red and silver. I'm going to try another dealer to see if they can match price. I think the lower price is to get you in and then they say its limited stock or they are gone to try to upsell. I also have to figure out my financing and look into what gji wrote: Got 4.67% financing through Costco CapOne for 60 months.. that's better than the 1000$ more at 2.9%.. or atleast www.carbuyingtips.com/Car_Loan_Calc_CE.xls said it is..

Before you talk with COSTCO/Cap. One, you might try to squeeze your honda finance guy. After being told on Sat. that 6.0 was the best Honda could due (I took the $2500 as well), I came back Wed. with a Cap. One check with rate of 4.35 (shorter term). At that point the honda finance guy told me he could do 4.3! Nuts to him, but this info might help you bargain with your finance guy for similar rate.

Great point. I will have a rate from my bank and see if they can beat it. Do you know if the dealer had any pre-payment penalty or other 'requirements' with their loan? Sometimes they have a mandatory, i forget what its called, an extra fee you pay up front for 'protection' if you can't work and repay the loan.

would like to know a good price for an ex model in the Detroit area....I have been given the run around by local dealers... the closest price I could pin them down is 26,500 ....that seems pretty high to me. Thanks

We never got into details - I was kinda miffed that three days before the finance guy told me the lowest he could go was 6 point something, but I will tell you this was a honda finance loan (4.3%), and he had told me earlier (refering to the ~6% offer) that it was a "simple" car loan with no prepayment penalty. The problem with COSTCO, if you are in a rush, is that you will apply and they will approve you immediatley and send you the check (for $15 overnight or free through snail mail) - you will need to call them to get the details of the loan (term, etc.). You also need to select auto pay for lowest term.
