Drawback on waiting is a smaller selection, and it is possible the incentives are not as good in October. However, there is nothing in the economy that is suggesting things are going to get better for a while. Prices will stay down, especially while inventory is up. Honda, Dodge, & Chrysler all seem to still have significant inventory right now. I'm not sure on Nissan or Toyota or the others.

I actually thought the same thing. It does seem like folks are wanting to wait until October just to see (I wanted to), but I have also seen on other forums, here and actually the inventory at the dealerships slowly being bought up. There are still a number of 08s out there, but if you have a particular color in mind you might want to jump on it.
Hopefully I am not shooting myself in the foot here, but I started becoming unsure of waiting for "better" incentives. I didn't jump on the Nissan deal that ended this month and lost out on 10,500 off sticker price. Of course there aren't that many 08 Quests out there like odys, but I just don't want to take that chance. A few hundred bucks either way isn't going to kill me.
The dealership that I am dealing with is basically giving me "dealer cash" of 2,500 on top of the 3,500, but quite frankly, I just see this as they are starting with invoice, and the 3,500 is coming off of that. No where on my buyer's agreement do I see 2,500 dealer cash. I am pulling the trigger tonight.
I have been scouring this and all other forums for months. I am tired and I just need to commit.

Thanks for the definition. Just so happens I was following this method, just didn't know it had a name.
Had two more Denver area dealers decline to go lower. Just not getting the prices I'm seeing in this forum on the coasts.

In San Jose, CA it is 27k for EX-L with RES. Can you please let me know what is it that they are quoting?

You were right. Just a gimmick. They said the 27,400 price was better than the employee pricing. I couldn't get out of them what "employee" pricing actually meant. So I just dropped it. The best they could do was $9000 on the trade..couldn't get them to go higher. Seemed kinda odd that they wouldn't move on price or trade.
From your experience who is the best Honda dealer in the Cincinnati area to get a really good price?
