#20756 of 30581 Re: Are dealers out of 2008 EX-L with RES/NAV [yfong94108]

What I have found out is that the Bay area Honda dealers are arrogant even if it means that they don't sell any. They still want you to come and negotiate which I clearly don't want to do. I want to limit my interaction with them.
Their favorite statement is "go get your best price and I will still beat it". When I ask for their price, there is no response. Most of them seem to give over 30300 Out of the door price.
I have decided not to buy an Odyssey for now. The 2009 price is ridiculously high. Will wait for the better deals during holidays. I don't think many dealers are selling anyway with the way the economy is. Honda has to come out with better deals.

Thank you from the ref message# 20591. I got my 08 Odyssey EX-L at Herson Honda at Rockville Maryland. This is a very FIRST time which I met a wonderful saleslady whose name is Ginny Marshall. We dealt very much mainly via email then follow up by the call. There was 100% no hassle. I came to the dealer the paper work were ready for me to sign. I did a test drive, checked the car. That was it. I got it. No waiting or nagging time !!!
Anyone lives in Maryland. I strongly suggest you to come to Herson Honda to meet Ginny. Normally, we have to stay at the dealer nagging nagging from 3 to 6 hours before you leave the dealer with headache and upset which I experienced a few times before with my other cars ..

If you decided to go with Potamkin Honda, I would strongly encourage you to ask for George N. when you get there. He's really very, very nice, straight-forward, and not "pushy" at all. Very highly recommended. They have a lot of cars in stock, so you may be able to get an even better deal when you get there.
By the way, I bought an 08 Touring (Silver, No Pax) from them in a hassle-free process. I paid $33,135 for the car (32264 cash price + 670 dest + 250 doc fees) + $145 for DMV (registration + title transfer + tire + NYS inspection) + sales tax on $10K (8% on $33135 minus trade). I know I could have done better if I waited a little more, but they (by far) gave me the best deal on my trade (over $1500 more than carmax and other dealers, and $2500 more than KBB - very comparable with NADA guide/Edmunds tool). That was the "make it or break it" for me. I saw at least five dealers before I went to PH and I am very pleased with how things went. I had quotes from over 15 dealers in NYC/NJ area.
Don't go for their extended warranty (HondaCare) as their's is $500 more than Saccucci's. That was 1/2 hour before they closed, so their finance manager did not offer me any packages (I was actually the one who brought up the ext warr). We drove home in the Touring within an hour and we are lovin it
Hillside guys told me they had the color I wanted in stock and when I got there they said "we don't have it, sorry". The sales person even said "are you crazy? you're trading in a silver car why do you want another silver?". I left right away, obviously, and complained to their manager.
If you need more information feel free to contact me directly.

Just picked up black on black touring model for $33,200 + taxes, tags with 2.9% financing at Faulkner Honda in Harrisburg. Very nice people. There was probably a little more to be had in the deal, but color was very hard to find and this was the lowest price within 2 hour drive of Philly. Also purchased 6yr, 100K extended warranty for $885, which was originally quoted at $1,300.

Sorry to be slow in response skr2. I bought my 2008 EX-L w/ RES & NAV from Peter's Honda in Nashua. Never bought from them before, but their service department has been very good over the years.
