Thanks to everyone for the great information in this forum, it was really very helpful!
Finally, we bought our 2008 Odyssey EX-L (Mocha Mettallic) on Monday 10/27/2008 from Planet Honda,Rt 22 W Union, NJ.
They threw in the "Splash guards" and the "Door Edge Guards". The only extra thing (unnecessary) was $249 - KeyGuard service for 5 yrs.
Here's the breakdown for our new 2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L, no RES, no NAV :
$25844 (including destination -> $670).
$1826.51 (7% NJ Taxes)
$354 (MV Registration + Title)
$349 (Doc fee)
$7.50 (Tire Tax)
$8.50 (Online charges/Fees -- ????)
The OTD price was $28,639 and we got the 2.9% for 36 months. (which was still not bad at all - just missed on the 0.9% based on score).
Did not get the GAP insurance or the extended warranty (7Yrs/75K for $1435 -- They were willing to extend it to 100K, since I denied 75K).
We really wanted the Mocha Mettallic with as few extra add-ons as possible.
Seemed like it would be difficult to get a basic 2008 EX-L in Mocha Mettallic by November, there are not many of them left in NJ.
They had 1 more Mocha Mettallic and couple of Black, White and Ocean Mist mettallic.
If anyone is interested, I can give the sales person name (He was very nice and not pushy at all - overall experience of all the people that we dealt was very nice).
Good Luck to all the buyers and happy halloween !!!!

.... $200 - 5yr tire protection (wife just got a flat the week before)
I paid $20 to fix a flat at Honda dealer. $200 is 10 x Fix-A-Flat. I don't think this is at your advantage, except there are lots more on top of fix-a-flat.

I disagree. My wife also got a flat tire last week in our CRV. Cost me $364. Tire was damaged beyond repair. Tread wear was below acceptable limits for one tire replace and was forced to purchase 2 tires. These were the Contis 4x4 tires. The michelins on the Odyssey are more expensive.
But you are probably right. I think $200 was too much as well. They started out at $395 for that plan. $200 is what I got them down to. Oh well. Lets see if it ever comes in handy??

Don't these tire protection plans also cover the wheel? At my dealership we just had a gal come in who hit something that blew out her tire and sent her into a curb which busted up the rim. She got a new rim and tire (the car was less then a month old). She saved about $1500.00 - Honda wheels are expensive!
#20880 of 30588 First Texas Honda, Austin, TX is crooked
Oct 31, 2008 (8:40 pm)
I got a quote of $25,600+TTL for '08 EX-L via e-mail from First Texas Honda, Austin, TX, last week. When I went to the dealer to buy the Odyssey they first said it was a special for just one day then the story changed that it was a mistake in their quote and the price is no longer valid. I had contacted them via e-mail and phone on several occasions before going to dealer showroom, at no point did the dealer retract the price until I walked in ready to buy. Their explanations were inconsistent and they seemed very dishonest.
I live in Austin, so what is a reasonable price for a '08 EX-L in central Texas or for that matter in Texas?
Thanks for your help.

MDx - first off, that is a load right there. Talk about changing the price at the absolute last minute - the ultimate "bait & switch".
I don't live in Texas, but if you do an advanced search of the Odyssey forum with some variable of "Texas" as the key word, it should narrow it down.
Isn't there some guy in the Dallas area "David McDavid"? I see his cars once in a while in Phoenix. (just a thought). Maybe he has a Honda franchise.
$25,600 seems to be in the ball park in general for the Odyssey EX-L. I am keeping a little spreadsheet of what people are paying because my wife & I are about to be in the market and want to have an idea of what people are paying.
Doesn't seem too bad.

Stick to $25,500 on 08 EXL without any extra options.
Dest Ccharge should be included
plus Honda special financing

I just purchased my new 08 EXL yesterday. Thanks to this forum, it helps me a lot to get a great deal.
$25,914 (Destination Charge included) plus tax and tags.
2.9% for 60 months Honda financing.
I was planning to purchase at the end of Nov. but most of the dealer had few of the 08 available especially the EXL.
I'm from Central Pa.

First off thanks to everyone who posted in this thread -- it is extremely helpful and I will never purchase another car without coming here before hand.
I just purchased a Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ RES & NAV from Hugh White Honda in Columbus OH. I only wanted EX-L w/ RES but they couldn't find one in 6 states with my color choice (black) so I spent the extra dough on the NAV to get the color.
I only dealt over the internet and it was a very good experience - excellent actually. Nothing shady or questionable -- I showed up and they gave me the exact same deal we agreed to prior. I even introduced a trade in and put more money down once I got there without any problems.
Hugh White even went above and beyond to help me arrange this purchase as an x-mas gift.
$29154.00 (destination included)
250.00 documentation fees
1967.89 sales tax (6.75%)
25.50 title fees
I did the 2.9% financing over 60.
I've seen a few deals on here that would beat this but I think all things considered I got a solid deal here.
