No. It is not a good price for 2008 considering the Honda rebate to the dealer and the hold back. I just bought one at $ 31750 destination charge included. Obvious that is way under invoice. But the problem, I really have to search very hard for this one since by now most dealership in the east coast are practically sold out of the model that you and I want. You have to search for overstocked dealership. Try Overstock.com. In general, the selling price including destination charge is definitely below $ 35,000 for a Touring model around our area.

I have been doing the same thing with the internet bids except that I'm interested the 2008 EX-L w/o any extras. I've also had the same experience regarding replys. The best bid I have received so far was from the internet sales person at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. Unfortunately, her bid was still too high particularly given the driving distance. If she drops the price I would likely purchase from here since she has been the most professional.
I would appreciate knowing how things go and who gives you the best deal.

I think that is a very solid price and would jump on it (I bought a similar van Nov 1st for $29,100). I doubt they are going to bend much more than that.

As you can see supply is near zero. As they supply goes down, the price goes up.

I wouldn't take the comment from mpslhondadlr re: Price going up as supply goes down. This person has conveniently forgotten the "demand" part of the equation, which iat the moment is in incredibly short supply. It's a buyers market for sure and don't let any dealer tell you otherwise. Every day the inventory sits on the lot costs them money. Now that the 2009 Odysseys are showing up the 2008s are a definite problem. Anybody that says otherwise has some serious denial issues going on.

HAHAHA! So lets see, there are zero 2008 EXL and above trim-levels in Minnesota (the whole state). But guss what, people are still looking for them. Simply because people can still save over 3000 from an '09.
To address this need, we bought 20 of them from various parts of the country. We own them for about $600.00 more then net (due to shipping). But rather then give up holdback and and all of the DEALER CASH, we're selling them for $2300.00 under invoice. We've had them in-stock for less then a week and we've sold more then half of them. It's still a fair deal for the consumer and the dealer.
Or Molly, you could simply wait until all of the remaing 2008's are gone and then pay thousands more for a 2009.

And why were they buying them from "various parts of the country"? Answer: The dealers holding them were unable to sell them. That tells it all.

We've got an offer for a 2008 EX-L with RES and NAV for $29,800 out the door including TTL. I'm not sure we can do much better than that but let me know if anyone disagrees.
