I think Boston is one of the better areas to be buying the 2008 Odyssey in. I kept reading about the "Donkey Punch" method and just googled it to find that it's basically what we did as well. we ended up with a Black w/ tan 2008 Odyssey EX-L for $25000 including destination. In addition to the standard EX-L package, they also included that all weather floor mats and the cargo tray liner in the price. We purchased through herb chambers which had a great internet sales division. I purchased the warranty through them initially but cancelled it and bought the same one online from another Honda Dealership (Sarcucci Honda of RI I think) for $400 less. ($1100 for the 8 year 100k mile plan)
I had no trade in or lease which kept things simple. I know it must be harder for you dealing with the secondary negotiation of the lease. I'm wondering if its not worthwhile saying you don't want to end the lease early, negotiate your best deal, and then say you changed your mind and see what you can negotiate on that seperately. Good luck. The prices people seem to be paying in Boston seem to significantly lower overall. I half jokingly said in a prior post that it might make sense for people to make a vacation out of it and drive the new car home from Boston. Good luck in your negotiations.

Because MA does not issue Temp Plate so it will be 2 trips to make to Boston if buyer is out of State, 1 to close the deal then 1 more to deliver the car after get registration/insurance in own State.

Jan 04, 2009 (6:20 am)
Tampa FL area found a EX-L for 25,400, going for 25K since it seems the dealers contacted all agreed to match.
My question is the incentive change on the 5th (tomorrow), there is ample stock of 2008 EX-L, wondering if best to wait until after the 5th to buy or pull the trigger today,

It is advantage to wait since things will get worse before getting better in this economy.

#21271 of 30580 How much for a 2009 EX-L with RES in Dallas area
Jan 05, 2009 (8:46 am)
Wanted to know how much people are paying for a 2009 EX-L with RES in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. ( i.e. out-the-door price ).
Seen a lot of posts on the 2008 model but I'm interested in the 2009.

Purchased car for a dealer in Maryland yesterday and I probably did not get a good deal. But here are the numbers:
2009 EX-L RES and NAV (Bali Blue) with remote engine starter (aftermarket) - $32,750
plus 100 processing, 675 freight, tax (6%), title. I jumped on it too quickly-should have got some internet quotes first. No looking back now.
#21273 of 30580 Trading my 08 for an 09 LX, Not so fast
Jan 05, 2009 (9:17 am)
Maybe this post is out of order here, but it may help someone. I drive 30K miles a year and have traded out of my LX Odyssey every year since I got my first one in 2004. Usually it costs about $5500 plus my van to get the new year's model. This year, as usual, I contacted about ten S Fl Honda Dealers via E Mail looking for the best deal. KBB says my trade is worth $18K, but the highest offer I got for my 08 excellent condition 29K mile Odyssey was $12K. The low offer was $10K. Yes these offers were against the discounted price of about $24K on the 09 and I know the economy is in the doghouse, but ten grand! I will be driving the 08 for some time. I've always used this forum to my benefit, so I thought I'd share my experience. If you trade frequently as I do, you may want to look at a used Odyssey. The price may be a lot lower than you thought.
#21274 of 30580 2009 EX-L with Res & Nav in Cook County, IL
Jan 05, 2009 (12:00 pm)
On December 31st we pulled the trigger and purchased a 2009 Odyssey EX-L (Taffeta White with Ivory leather interior) with Nav & DVD after pursuing competitive bids over the several previous weeks with 10 different dealers. Final price was $33,410 (includes the $670 delivery fee) plus document fee, taxes, and plate transfer.
We could have purchased it for about $400 less but we opted for the closer dealer who also happened to be a better overall sales experience. Took the 1.9% financing from Honda.
Since found out that Honda has offered a $1250 consumer incentive that was only available for this weekend (Jan 3-5). Likely an offer of incentive from the single dealer who emailed this to me but worth knowing if you're still in the market. Wish I had waited but had no expectation Honda would come through with an additional incentive so took the best deal available.

Toyota, Honda lead declines in Dec. auto sales
From Yahoo news:
"DETROIT – Toyota and Honda's U.S. sales fell more than their U.S. competitors' in December, with Toyota's 37 percent decline and Honda's 35 percent drop showing the Japanese company's popular fuel-efficient models were little help as consumers steered clear of showrooms due to the dismal economy."
And later in the article:
"Honda sold 86,085 vehicles last month, down from 131,792 a year earlier but up from 76,233 in November. The month-over-month improvement was a trend seen by most automakers."
