Any thoughts as to who is offering a better deal, Toyota or Honda on an '08 at this point? Also, we have a baby due in November so I'd like to get the car by then, but if I can save substantially on an '08 by waiting until December I would do that. Any thoughts on if it makes sense to wait another couple of months to get a better deal? Thanks in advance.
Toyota has low stock for this time of year. The best deal now is Odyssey because of high stock and 2009 models sitting in AL. The prices keep getting better. I'd start looking, secure your own financing (not Honda's), and start low. Get email quotes online, explain in advance that you are aware of the $3500 incentive. My goal price right now on a plain EX-L would be below $26200. Find an "old" 2008 with an MSRP $32845 including the old dest charge. My logic being, that EX-L has been sitting there for some time and will move easier.

We are looking to purchase a Honda Odyssey EX-L (All standard features but no DVD) this month and the lowest quote that we got was for $25,340 with $3500 Dealer Cash. The same with .9% financing is around $27,367. Do you think this is a good deal? Can I get the dealers to lower it further?
I thought .9% financing (Honda) would be a good option. But, some messages here are saying not to go with Honda and to get a better deal? Is there someplace where I will get a better deal than the .9% APR that Honda is offering?

To add to the above post of mine.........
The $25,340 or $27,367 (Finance option) includes the dealer destination charges of $670 but not the sales tax, registration and conveyance of $299.

Odyssey EX-L basic, I am sitting on a price of $26,866 OTD cash. I think they will go a few hundred lower to about $26,100 by end of month provided the stock is still there. Last month I negotiated a price of $27,090 OTD, but felt Sept. would be a better month to buy due to the stock.

southernhive...26.8K OTD is a great price (assuming it includes TTL). But... can you confirm?

I have several emails with price and model from the dealer, but until I walk in and buy I cannot confirm the price. Last month I had a price of 25,800 for an EX-L from Curry Honda in Atlanta and after several emails to nail down the exact vehicle before I drove to Atlanta, the salesman pulled the price saying he quoted me the wrong model. I have not heard from him since. So, until I walk in and buy, there are no gurantees. The model I am looking at is w/out DVD and NAV which adds about about $2000 onto the price.

I have been emailing different dealers within the chicagoland area for quotes on a 2008 EXL-RES model. The lowest quote I have received is $26,582 +TTL and no junk fees. Should I pull the trigger or wait? They have the color that I am looking for an it seems like that color is hard to find this late in the year.

I think you answered your own question.
#20406 of 30577 Re: Odyssey EX-L W/ RES and NAV DEMO [pacars]
Sep 11, 2008 (8:20 pm)
I found a rare 2008 executive demo, loaded, with 6500 miles. I'm trying to score an aggressive offer, as follows:
Less Incentive: 3,500
Less milage (.15/mile): 975
Less Demo Depreciation (it's a "used" car): 3,000
My Offer: 24,944 +tax/fees
What do you think about my logic? It's loaded, but has 6,500 miles, so it's hardly a new car. Any feedback would be great!
At this price it woudl be a great price. I just obught this car aweek ago. EX-L W/ RES and NAV for $29,000 including dest (not TT or reg or doc prep). I think this car depreciates or usage cost is aobut $250/month $3K /year. 6K miles is about 6 months so $1500. Your milege example is good. Your depreciation is high at $3K. My take is they will probably try to sell it at 27.5-28K. I woudl take it at $27K and below otehr wise just go buy a new one it is not worth it.

I would go to the dealers website and check the inventory for the van you are looking to buy. If there is plenty of inventory, then I would wait. To get the best price, don't get stuck on a particular color as long as it is has the features you desire. I will purchase any color other than black. If the dealers know that you prefer a particular color, they will use that against you when haggling over price.
As the previous poster said, if you are stuck on a particular color and that color is limited, then you may have answered your own question.
