Honda Odyssey, Van
#21691 of 30569 2009 Odyssey LX bought in Texas
Feb 22, 2009 (11:01 am)
I bought a 2009 Mocha Odyssey LX thru the Internet
from Gunn Honda in San Antonio, TX
$21,497.00 Price before TTL
$1,343.56 TX Sales Tax (6.25%)
$46.73 Dealer Inventory Tax
$139.05 License, Title Inspection fee, Road Bridge Fee
$50.00 Documentary Fee
$23,076.34 Out the Door Price
Smoothest purchase I have ever made, and I've made many for my family, and in-laws.
Normally I spend many hours researching, e-mailing back and forth.
But wife wanted another Odyssey, after another person totaled her 1981 Odyssey. and I had 72 hours of rental car coverage from the insurance company.
C.B.'s price was contained in his first e-mail. No other packages were pushed on us. His price was well below the other dealers, which included Austin and Houston.
What a difference consumer demand for a vehicle can make.
I bought a 2001 Odyssey LX, for $23,949 + 1494 Tax = $25,443
or $2,367 more than I paid for this new 2009 one. This was back in the day when there was a 4 week waiting list to be able to pay MSRP.

Pulled the trigger and its a done deal.
$31,295 sales price for EX-L with DVD and Navigation, no extras
$2,586 sales tax (8.25% California) Buy before it goes to 9.25%!!! Thanks Arnie!
$55 documentation fee
$298 DMV Fees - License 203, Registration 87.00, 8.75 tire fee
I was dealing with 4 dealers at the same time playing off of each of them. When the competitive bidding started, not one of the internet managers would put it in writing. I had to come it to get the paperwork. Following the advice of another site, I politely moved on.
Finally got the best deal at the place I test drove the van. I had two sales people (thats another story) but they were both great to deal with in the end. No problems with either of them. It took a little longer than I wanted (about 4 hours total) so I am just glad the deal is done.
Good luck to everyone who is still wheeling and dealing. Hopefully my information helps.

Just to be clear- I did not get RES.
I bought at Honda Bloomfield on Telegraph.
Paid $29,995 for EX-L. They will try and sell you accessories though.
They quoted me around $31,500 for RES

"Just got my 09 EX, Total Out the door: $24,000 (include DE tax, tag and processing fee). "
Can you provide me the dealer name?
#21698 of 30569 Why HONDA do not give incentives?
Feb 24, 2009 (11:45 am)
Why HONDA do not come with incentives like its competitors like Toyota and others. Are they not seeing the economy down? Are they not recession immune?
They have made/earned enough profits all these years (whatever may be the reason like good brand name etc) .. why can't they help the customers in this hard econimic situations .. don't they think it is their turn now?
If HONDA is not helping the customers, why should the customers show their faith towards Honda? Even after studying the market, they have increased their 2009 models so drastically (about 10% increase from their 2008 models).
I am not against honda but, they should have minimum social responsibility to help the customers.

This post has to be satire!
"They have made/earned enough profits all these years (whatever may be the reason like good brand name etc) .. why can't they help the customers in this hard econimic situations .. don't they think it is their turn now?"
Who are you to say they've earned enough profits? As a Honda shareholder, I don't think they have earned enough profits!
"I am not against honda but, they should have minimum social responsibility to help the customers."
LOL, that explains everything! Just becuase some people are feeling a pain in this down-turn you think Honda (or any business I presume) should just lower their profit margin? I heard your neighbor has had a hard time paying his bills, don't you think the right thing to do is help pay some of his bills???
Maybe the governement should step in to force Honda to change the way they do business to give everyone a chance to buy a new car. After all, it will help their customers in this economic downturn.
