"The best price for an '09 Odyssey EXL with RES & NAV seems to be $34-35k. I don't want to get an '08 because the $4-5k I save in purchase price will be offset by a higher depreciation. (Please feel free to comment if you disagree with this theory.) So ... "
I don't get this reasoning. Basically, Honda has taken most of the upfront depreciation OUT of the 2008 by means of the generous incentives. Driving off the lot, your 09 is going to take a bigger percentage depreciation hit than the 08, I believe, simply because you're paying much closer to invoice on the 09 than the 08.

You are right if you purely based on PRICE.
other than pricing I would also check out the realiability, test drive personal feeling, layout and ratings, then weigh on them according to my priority.

NM-Socal - Consider a Honda, Toyota, then Chrysler.
I just don't have a lot of faith in Chryslers.
Chrysler may be offering you a heck of a deal, but the overall quality would be something of concern to me.
Check JD Power, NHTSA, etc.
I thought the crash rating for the Chrysler was not as good as the Honda.
What you can also do is compare the vehicles. Toyota website will allow you to compare 3 or 4 vehicles.
Hope this helps.
#21216 of 30574 2009 EX-L prices in Bay area ?
Dec 29, 2008 (12:24 pm)
I live in Bay area. I am thinking to buy a 2009 EX-L.
I have a few questions:
1. How much should it cost - with and without GPS and DVD - both.
2. The salesperson said that avoid the ones with DVD player, since with blue-ray in market, the current in-built DVD player will get obsolete soon. Is this true ?
3. They are offering 1.9% APR for 3 years financing. Is this a good scheme ?
Any help appreciated. Thanks!
#21217 of 30574 Boston Area EX-L 2008, 2009 Pricing; Request For Feedback
Dec 29, 2008 (2:24 pm)
I canvassed the greater Boston area's 14 Honda Dealers with Donkey Punch method starting Sat night for an EX-L, no RES, no NAV. Best 2008 price is $25,423 (includes destination charge of $670 and 5 year / 100,000 warranty) + $299 Doc Fee for the total vehicle price. Additional charges of $118.50 cover Registration, Inspection Sticker, License Plates and Title fees. Tax is additional 5% based on vehicle price. The document fee seems high and I have seen lower pricing in the $25K range. Feedback from you readers is appreciated.
I have been told that the manufacturer to dealer cash will likely start on 1-6-09 for 2009 models when the current 2008 program expires on 1-5-09. If you are looking for a 2009 then wait about 10 days if you can and you'll likely save yourself a few thousand dollars. Good luck.

neprop could you post or PM which dealers gave you the best price? I am in ohio and today was turned down offering 26,000 for a 2008(no res, no nav- basic ex-l). I would love to get the 25,400 you are quoting with the warranty.
the ohio dealers with 2008's left seem not willing to deal very much.

I am in the Boston area too...the best price that I have for a 2008 odyssey EXL no res no nav is 26,333 +doc, tax. ttl and reg. I am hoping to use your number when I go in there tomorrow. I have a Pilot lease that I am hoping to turn in a couple of months early to take advantage of the remaining 2008's in stock. I just read an article in the Globe this morning that local dealerships, including foreign dealers, are really suffering, so I am hoping to make a deal when I head in there. I'll keep you posted on how I do. Let me know if you find a better price anywhere in the area.

could you pm with the dealer that is offering this pricing? i am more than willing to take a 26,300 offer but am being laughed at locally when offering this, they want 29k for an 08 exl.
#21221 of 30574 Buy 2009 EX-L now or wait for first quarter ?
Dec 29, 2008 (7:02 pm)
Is it better to buy the 2009 EX-L Odyssey by January 5th (Honda APR 1.9% scheme ends on 5th), or wait for new deals for next quarter ?
Any help is appreciated.
#21222 of 30574 EX-L 2008 w/ RES & NAV in PA
Dec 29, 2008 (7:04 pm)
Hi! Not sure if I got a good deal or not but I just started looking for a 2008 EX-L w/ NAV & RES 3 days ago and there were none in my area. Found one 2 hrs away today and by phone got the price of $28,600 (tax & tags will add another $1,900) so it will be $30,500 OTD. Price includes mats, cargo net. Do you think this is a good price??? New to buying foreign cars so any advice is appreciated.
We are to pick it up tomorrow at 3 pm so send your comments ASAP. Thanks
