Thanks rzsalley. That is really helpful. I noticed that we are not supposed to post names after I posted my message.
I live near Mall of Georgia Honda and work near Gwinnett Place Honda but I am more than willing to drive down to Curry for a good deal. I have a friend who has worked at Curry for more than 15 years. I took my 2000 Odyssey to the body shop there and was pleased with the work and service. It is a little too far to go for regular service work.
Can you confirm that the quote you got included all of the doc fees? I will follow up with Curry today.

There are lots of disguised names which is actually name PROFIT, such as admin fee, dealer prep fee, doc fee, bank fee $595 in leasing that Honda Finance said it is not their fee.

Honda Finance charges a $595 acquisition fee on every lease. Whoever told you they don't, is wrong.

Curry hasn't given me the break down of their price yet..waiting on response from them to provide that. I really am ticked that they charge so much for thier doc fees and all the dealerships here have given me either $575-$599 for that line item. OUTRAGEOUS!

No problem deal_me_in. I am still waiting on him to tell me how I can identify him without sharing his name. I just sent him an email telling him that what I appreciate about him is how quickly he responds from his Blackberry. Hopefully that will get his attention and he will get back. I also have asked him to do better on the price since I am actively trying to refer people to him. He told me in the beginning that even if he does not get my business, he wants to win me over so that he can get my neighbor's business. I reminded him of that in my last email.
BTW...during previous conversations he said that he is quoting me OTD price. I told him I needed this because we are paying cash (which we are) and I just need to write a check for the total amount. So I am 99.99% sure this includes EVERYTHING

Deal me in, The salesman says that his title is internet sales manager. He says that I can use his name, but I do not want to go against the Forum's rules. I got in touch with him through an internet inquiry and then spoke with him over the phone.. Hopefully you can figure it out from there. Use my screen name if you have to as that will let him know that you were referred by me.
BTW...now Honda CarLand is trying to beat his quoted price. They called me. I did not call them. The dealer asked if I could give him one more shot at my business. First to check and see if they have the color that I want. Second, to see if they can beat Curry's price. He said, "I hate it that they are going to be taking a loss on this vehicle (which makes it hard for the rest of us), but in this market that is what dealer's are doing!"
With that said, I think that Curry's quote is about the lowest any dealer will go (or maybe I am just naive)

At this point, we are out of 2008 EXL's and I beileve this is the case for most of the stores.
A few EX's are left that leather can be installed in.

So Honda Carland says that that price as was quoted from Curry is an $1100 loss for the dealer. They do not have the color that I want, but they said that they would swap cars within the next day and do a couple of dollars less than what Curry is quoting. I think the most ethical thing for me to do is still go with Curry (although Honda Carland is minutes from my house), but I just wanted others to know (who live in the north metro Atlanta area) that there is another dealership out there that will ultimately take this price. The salesman that I was dealing with is the used car division. I would like to refer business to him since I actually test drove a used car with him last weekend. Also, they have won the President's Award 6 years in a row. Can you tell I am struggling with whom I should give my business to?

rzsalley - thanks for the updates. I will contact the internet sales manager at Curry and let him know that you referred me. What color are you looking for that is so difficult to find?
I need to look at the colors in person but I am leaning toward the Ocean Mist or the Mocha Metallic. My 2000 Odyssey is dark blue and I won't buy another dark color. It shows too much dirt and with the drought I can no longer wash it in my driveway.
