#21038 of 30569 Bought the 2008 Odyssey EX-L for $25,900 (2.9% for 36 months)

Well, thanks to all of who posted their details and responded my specific queries. I went to the dealer yesterday and they offered me 26K for 08 odyssey ex-l out the door price (VA state), along with 3.9% for 36 months, due to my credit score. I waited and bargined a lot, but they won't melt. So, I walked away. Went back today morning and agreed to take the vehicle as they offered yesterday, but requested them to put my wife onto the loan application. Due to her credit score (better than mine), they automatically offered me 2.9% (i wish they gave 1.9%), and I have no complaints, because I walked away with a vehicle of my choice in color and model, etc, with the door price tag of $25,900. This was purchased from Pohanka Honda in Fredericksburg, VA. Sales representative is Paula Smith (540-847-8209 Cell). If you mention this to her, she will give the same price, guaranteed, as long as they have the vehicle and they have only few left in this trim. So, if you are planning to purchase one, I recommend you call her. Have fun shopping & driving.
And, my friend purchased 2008 EX-L w/RES for $27,500 out the door price with 2.9% for 36 months from the same dealership. They have no more of this trim left.

I'm interested in buying a 2008 EXL in the Seattle area. In year 2000 I bought my last Odyssey in Olympia as the Seattle area dealers were much more expensive back then. Does anybody have any comments about any advantages to buying outside major metropolitan areas?

Just out of curiosity, how much did they charge for the document fees? What's considered reasonable?

I think they charge the admin fee the most that the state law or their own association allow... I experienced that the sale guy simply scrossed out the admin fee without my asking.

We just bought the 2008 EX-L from Honda of Lisle. Great experience and a very smooth transaction.
Vehicle price: $25,300
Doc fee: $150
Tax and plates were the only extras. Financed at 3.9% for 60 months.
Thanks to all those who've posted here-it gave us a wealth of information about what we could expect to pay and what was a fair price.

Congratulations! does it have either DVD or Nav? Any specific person we can contact at the Honda of Lisle. Thanks in advance

No DVD or NAV. We were quoted $26,885 for EX-L RES, but we decided we didn't need the DVD and they didn't have the color we wanted anyway. They still had quite a few (10+) EX-Ls without the DVD as of last week. My salesman was Tim Render from internet sales. He was great.
