Honda Odyssey, Van
Nov 28, 2008 (7:35 pm)
Hey all. I got this quote today from a Honda dealership here in Phoenix for a 2007 Odyssey - Touring. Keep in mind it is not used and has not been sold.
2007 Honda Odyssey Touring
Honda's MSRP: $37,565.00
Your Special Sale Price: $29,471.00
Dealer Installed Accessories: $590.00
Doc Fee: $349.00
License Fee: $631.09
State and County Fees: $11.50
Your Out The Door Price: $33,472.50
Accessories: Premium Window Tint,
Splash Guards, Wheel Locks, Trunk Tray.
Also, if anyone has a link to the '07 Honda ody with pricing back then as well as options, please let me know. Would prefer something from Honda if at all possible.
Not sure if this is a good deal or not. My wife says it is not a good deal.
What do you think? Why or why not.

We bought our EXL w/o RES, NAV in Houston from Goodson West for $29,100 OTD in July, pretty consistent with the additional $1000 incentives given the new price you got.
John Eagle's bid was the highest when I talked with them, so it is no surprise that now they still have the most inventory.
We are really happy with the van and hope you enjoy yours too!

Your wife is right, that 2007 is NOT a good deal. The 2007 is two years old at this point. If you were to trade it in three years from now, it would be considered five years old. It doesn't matter that it hasn't been titled in anyone else's name.
There are also two big concerns. #1, How many miles are on it? Dealer family and friends drive a "demo" around and put miles on it. Since it hasn't been titled, it's still considered "new" even though it's got a lot of miles.
#2, Cars that sit around dry out, tend to be driven with "old" gas in the tank, etc. It's not good for cars to sit around unused.
I think you could get a 2008 for not much more.
Also, invoice on a 2008 touring is 36,214. -3500 dealer cash is 32714. -600 holdback is 32114. That's only $2700 apart for a 2008, which is a much better vehicle, even when you don't consider resale value in a few years.
The 2008 has a refreshed body style, updated version of the variable cylinder engine, Bluetooth, a power passenger seat, a back-up camera integrated into the rearview mirror and memory-linked side mirrors with a reverse-gear tilt-down. The Odyssey also receives minor interior material upgrades, additional interior storage and a standard auxiliary audio jack.

Lab88 - my wife is jumping around for joy that someone agrees with her. I was not disagreeing with her. We had similar thoughts regarding how long it has been sitting and other vital fluids being changed or not changed. Gas was not one of them, but now that you mentioned it, it is something I would consider very seriously.
One question Lab. Do you know if they still are offering the adjustable pedals on the 08 Touring? I can't find anything that says yes, but I have a salesman that says they are still available.
#21068 of 30569 Invoice pricing on '09's
Nov 30, 2008 (3:38 pm)
I was out in CT this weekend in Litchfield county. I went to Torrington Honda and checked out a '09 EX-L with RES. They offered a purchase price of $31,282. MSRP was $34,480. It was kind of funny. I didn't even really ask for pricing. I just wanted to test drive and get a brochure. They salesman went back and offered to sell the car at just around invoice price.
In wisconsin, Zimbrick honda is offering invoice price plus $35 for any in stock honda. It's their 35th anniversary.
I imagine with some bargaining one could get the price down even further.

Not only this isn't a good deal, it's terrible deal!
Beside everything everyone already said (it's 2007, it's sitting around with old gas etc.)
Ask Dealer what is: dearler installed accessories, break it down for you as how much each item cost, then check to see if you can get them NEW and cheaper online and install it yourself.
Ask the dealer and push them really hard to get rid of the Doc Fee: $349.00 Never pay for something which a must have cost of doing business. You don't get charge extra at Bestbuy or gas station to have a purchase receipt. Goes the same for Car Dealer. (at least retailer don't spell it out like the dealer)
License Fee: what is this fee? You mean the TAG and Registration? That seems like ALOT in my book.
Keep in mind, no matter what the dealer says to you, you are still buying a USED car. Used Car should be priced accordingly. Check Edmunds to find out how much a used 07' Oddy is sold today?
Good luck, and last but not least, make sure you're both happy about this purchase, it's a 5 years long commitment...

I purchased a 2007 Ody Touring in October of last year. I wanted a specific color, black on black, and there were only 2 in FLA when I purchased. That being said, I paid about $600 more for that color combo, which was around $33.9K, which included a dealer fee of about $500. I don't remember the exact numbers, but those should be pretty darn close, and paid nothing extra aside from tax/title/etc. The MSRP on our Honda was 39,690...not sure how yours is $37,565, as I thought the Touring models were all the same?? I think you can certainly get lower than the price offered at 29,471 + a few questionable fees. If I were you I would determine if you like the 2007 versus the "refreshed" 2008. Keep in mind the 07's come with the PAX run flat tires standard on the Touring, an option that many owners have complained about in the past. If you do like the 2007, then I'd say a price around 27K including the various fees would be pretty darn good, assuming the miles support the fact it is a new car. I've owned a 2003 and 2007 and can state that although the price of the vehicle has dropped the past 5 years it still holds it's value pretty good compared to other cars/vans. In 2003 it was rated the #1 vehicle for retaining it's value in consumer reports magazine (no longer the case). We have 13K miles on our 2007 and have had no issues, just drove 2000 miles for thanksgiving and got 25 MPG going 80 MPH.
#21071 of 30569 Black 2008 Odyssey EX-L (no res/no nav)
Dec 01, 2008 (10:25 am)
We purchased a black 2008 odyssey ex-l last week. Here’s the breakout of what we paid:
$26,396 vehicle - includes locate fee (est. $150-200) plus dealer perks of free mud flaps ($150 value), free state inspections (worth a few hundred to us), and a free loaner car when serviced)
$100 doc fee
$94 other fees
$1,848 - 7% tax
$28,437 - otd
This price w/o perks basically matched what another dealer who had this vehicle in stock (same vin that was relocated!) was willing to offer us and he was calling us up to 5x/day trying to sell.
My experience was very similar to Hondalover12. I contacted over a dozen dealers within 100miles who had colors that I liked (per autotrader.com) as well as a couple of the dealers that others on the forum recommended. Only a few of the dealers ended up actually having a color I was interested in (black, grey, silver) in an ex-l no resi/no nav. The lowest quote I received was $25.8k – this was on a second “Thanksgiving special” e-mail from Mike Pruit in Akron. By the time I factored in the perks of the dealer we purchased from along with the add’l charges, inconvenience & potential risk I would have of bringing the vehicle from out-of state (Ohio or another) it wasn’t worth it to me to go after the lowest base price. By the way, the lowest quote I received on an Ex-l with resi was $27,180.
Good luck in your search!

It depends where your door is. How much is car, how much is tax, how much is dealer fee, etc.
