#20922 of 30583 Honda Odyssey 2008 EX-L price paid
Nov 07, 2008 (3:40 pm)
Just bought a Odyseesy 2008 EXL today from Honda Carland, Atlanta
$24850.83 ( including destination)
$499 Dealer/Doc fee
$21 Title tag fees
They got the color that I wanted and match the lowest price that I found in Atlanta. Orginally really wanted EXL/ RES, but friends who had built in DVD with various age group kids talk me out of it plus the inventory for EXL is much better than EXL/RES. Since they are more EXL inventory, it is easier to negotiate for a better deal. EX/RES is about $1000- $1400 more than EXL.
We have kids with various age. So movies that my 1st grader like will not be the same movie that my young teen would like. Plus, I don;t want my youngest child to be watching PG-13 movies. My friends suggested that I should buy the portable DVD ( those with sleeve that can hang on the back seats) for each of my kids. Cheaper and help to prevent squabbling on which movie to watch. Also, they point out to me that if the built in DVD is damaged, the whole car will to be send for repair.

I'm trying to decide whether I should buy an Odyssey in a few weeks, or wait until later next year. The 2010's will be coming out at there will be good deals on 2009's, after all.
Does anyone think that the incentives will increase any time soon? The 3500 is good, but the interest rates were raised and that's not good. My local dealer had a LOT of 2008's left.

Inventory levels for 2008's is still very high and by the time 2010 models are out, it will take atleast 6 to 9 months. This year, the demand has been unexpectedly low for 08's and Honda didn't have enough time to cut production to match falling demand numbers. So unusally excess supply created pricing pressure and the result you are seeing significant discounts today.
For 2009 models, Honda will try to stay ahead of the curve and cut production to match the demand. They have significantly cut 08's production so far and increased production of fuel efficient vehicles like Civics. So, don't expect stellar deals in 2009...It is very likely that the current deals are still possible in 2009.
Yes, you could wait until December 3rd or 4th and see if they offer 0% for 36 months vs. current 1.9% for 36 months. It is very unlikely that they will increase interest rates next month. You have to take chance that the colors you like are still available.....It is still not impossible to get the colors you like even in early December.
Just my 2 cents.

Nissan & Toyota are offering 0% 36mo financing now. I bet Honda will do same for the Ody soon.

Just bought a 2008 odyssey EX 2 days ago. Paid $23400, plus $243 TTL. Deal threw in wheel locks/splash guard and something called clear bra, which is a thin sheet of plastic protecting the nose of the car. 2.9% financing. Got another quote that was $200 cheaper, but does not have any accessories. Overall, pretty good deal for a very nice vehicle.

#20930 of 30583 PRE-OWNED - 2006 Ody EX
Nov 10, 2008 (12:15 pm)
It has 40k miles. Its a standard EX model. Has an after-market DVD in it.
Asking: $21k. They came down to $16,500. which includes a 4 year 100,000 extended 0 deductible warranty.
My concern here is that it was in a frontal collision. Only the driver's airbag deployed apprantly according to CARFAX. It shows no visible signs of any issues. And clearly the damages were not high enough as to warrant a total loss on the car.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Davesri - some thoughts...
One - I would take it somewhere and have them look over the underbody. Today's technology makes straightening out frames easier and better than they used to, but I would still have someone look at it.
Also, check to make sure that the front door closes ok without any contact with any part of the windshield frame. I had a '94 Grand Prix where I noticed rust near the top of the door where the door was supposed to come close to the frame of the windshield. Instead, my door made CONTACT with part of the frame of the windshield. Everytime I slammed the car door, it made contact with the windshield frame and chipped paint! Upon closer inspection, I noticed certain pieces of body side molding was not "level" between the different parts of the car (back right door to back right fender.) Of course, this is after I bought the car (this was the first car I bought all by myself...
If you want to go further, see if the space between the front doors and fender is consistent all the way around.
Maybe even talk to the body shop and see if they remember the car and give you good idea of the damage. Perhaps they can surmise why only the driver's side airbag went off...that is odd.
Test drive the heck out of it and look for any rattles or anything else that is strange or shouldn't be.
