I'm also looking for an EX in Boston in the near future. Looks like you got a good price. Do you mind sharing which dealership you ended up signing your contract with?
Also, a more general question for everyone: any idea how long the manufacturer to dealer cash ($2500) is going to last? I saw on the Honda website that the financing deals have been extended until July.

I sent out the quote request to Commonwealth, Peters (Nashua) and Honda Gallery. Went with the quote from Honda Gallery. They didn't play any games once I arrived at the showroom with the Internet quote which I felt was a good price.
Commonwealth is closer to me, but they never responded to the request.
Good luck shopping. I think the timing is good right now to get an Odyssey at a higher discount than in the past. We also looked at EX-L, but the EX seemed to be a higher % discount off the MSRP in the end.

thank you for the reply. I think I have some room to haggle as tax in MA is only 5%. Going to dealership tommorrow. Will update the results.
#22244 of 30569 EX w/ 300K powertrain warranty
Apr 17, 2009 (1:06 pm)
The best quote i get so far in Houston area for the EX is $23,999 + 10 years/300K engine warranty. I seems to exclude destination charge and TTL.
Is this a good price? Can I expect $500 less + few goodies?

Odyssey EX at an EXcellent price. What is the exterior color of your new Ody EX? Did your dealer have a good selection of all models?
#22247 of 30569 What's the benefit of waiting till Fall 2010?
Apr 17, 2009 (5:14 pm)
Will the 2009 price drop 5% or more?
Will Honda have less or more than 2500 MTDR on 2009 models?
What's the condition of the leftover cars at the cost of lower price? All w/ quite some testdrive mileages? Bad colors? Scratch or dents?
Then what's the benefit of buying it now and paying half year insurance and registration just to legally put it in the garage or even on roadside (as I won't need a van till end of the year)?
#22248 of 30569 2009 EXL+DVD+Nav = What is a reasonable price?
Apr 17, 2009 (7:56 pm)
Well I posted what I thought was a deal on an EXL+DVD+Nav a few days or so ago and a wise poster responded that the deal sounded too good to be true, and that the car dealer and I were probably referring to 2 different trims.
Well, that is exactly what happened - either that or the dealer I was working with totally back-pedaled.
Anyway, long story short, I am trying to figure out if this is a good price.
EXL+DVD+Nav for $35,088 OTD
This sounds high to me. FWIW, the Consumer Reports document on this car suggests that you start with $33,400 for this model and then "negotiate up", meaning $33,400 is the "bottom line" price.
So what I am facing now is $35,088 - trade in of $5100 == $29,988.

I think you can do better than this. I am also in CA and so far best quote I received is 34K OTD. Are you in rush to buy the car or can wait week or two?
Would you like to team up with us so that we can negotiate the price and can get the better deal?
