#21920 of 30569 2009 Odyssey EX-L w/RES - $28,451
Mar 15, 2009 (7:15 pm)
Just purchased a 2009 Odyssey EX-L w/RES, Nighthawk Black for $28,451 (includes Freight, Splash Guards, Door Edge Trim, and Pinstripes). This was working with a Northern Virginia dealer's internet sales team and the process couldn't have been easier. I did have to pay the "mandatory" processing fee of $399 plus tax and tags. No financing deals through Honda. Best to go through credit union or something.
I didn't have a trade, so the whole process took a minimal amount of time and the dealer's sales agent was fantastic to work with. Based on what I've seen in the forums, the price seems in line with what others have been able to get.
I tried to negotiate roof rack cross bars and waiving the processing fee, but they said their price was rock bottom. I suspect their correct. That price is almost $7K off of MSRP.
To put things in perspective for people looking to buy, let me point out that we also owned a 2005 Odyssey EX without all the Leather, Sunroof, Rear Camera, Power Liftgate, or DVD system, and we paid $27,950 back in October of 2004 when the redesigned Odysseys came out and everyone was happy to pay full sticker and sometimes above sticker. (Fyi, we loved our 2005, be we sold it to our sister when she had a baby and desperately needed a minivan).
That means that flash forward almost 5 years and we only paid $500 more for an extremely more equipped Odyssey. In all my years of car buying, I have never seen Hondas selling for $7K under sticker.
This is truly the best time to be buying a new car of any make and model. Good luck to anyone else looking to buy an Odyssey.
P.S. - For what it's worth, my salesperson said that the Odyssey won't be redesigned until 2011. The Odyssey goes through a 6 year cycle. 2010 will be the 6th year of the current design. There may be slight changes in 2010, but not a redesign.

No problem. The price was $7275 off from MSRP. But the real good part was that I traded in my 4 month old Acura for $1000 more than what I actually paid for when I purchased it. I was not really happy with Acura and only after 4 months of driving it, I was already wanting to get rid of it. But I know that I was going to lose a lot on only 4 months old car but incredibly, I was able to make dealer pay more than what I paid for. So I made about $1000 and 4 months of free ride through this trade in. (Well, I know when I add tax, I lost some though)

Here in California, the best quote I got on Touring/ No PAX was 33900+TTL. It was just a one day search. But if you spend more time, I think you can get better price than that.

No, no trade-in or financing, it was a straight-up cash deal.

Maybe. How much is sales tax in Texas? What about DMV fees? What determines if it's a good deal or not is the price of the vehicle itself, not the OTD price.
We just bought an EX-L with RES/NAV (no other add-ons except wheel locks, which happened to be already on the vehicle) for $32830 in the San Francisco Bay area. Our vehicle price was $30,000 even, which seems to be a very good deal. I even had a salesman at another Honda dealer do everything but tell me to my face that I was lying when I told him I had a commitment of $30K for that vehicle. He just couldn't accept that it was new and had DVD and NAV for that price. He said the very best he could do was $600 higher.
A couple days later he called me up to see if we'd bought an Odyssey yet, and I told that we'd bought the one for 30, at which he repeated his "With DVD and NAV?" question yet again. I think he still thinks I was BSing him. Oh well, my gain, his loss.
