I tend not to pay attention to MSRP. Yeah, Honda add some small goodies to EX-L: power life-gate, rear-view mirror with back-off camera function, etc. But it does not cost that much. I don't believe Honda has much bargaining power. It's just the last year of 6-year design cycle.
I bought my 2002 accord lx 5-speed 17k in Mar 2002, 3 months later, my friend bought the same car (ok, slight better, lx or se auto) 1500 less. The only difference between now and then is that Yen is expensive now (Note: it may not affect price of Odyssey that much because it's made in states, including engine and trannny). The question is, will Honda offer 2500 rebate soon?
I may be wrong. Only time can tell, in 3 months.

I have read this thread back to January. So, I have put in MUCH more time than 15 minutes, trust me! ;o)
We are ready to purchase the touring on Friday. I posted a quote earlier and I did not get any inpput. Does that mean it was not even close or it was? A dealer called me today and asked me what my price was to get the deal done. I honestly didnt know what to tell him. He has the touring in the color we want. He guaranteed that they would beat any price we get. I was thinking from what I have read about deals (this was back from Feb. deals though) that a great price would be 37,000 OTD. The quote I posted about 10 messages back show all of the details. But that is $2,496 less than the quote I got. Is that unreasonable? Thank you for any guidance you can offer me!
#24999 of 30569 bought EX with RES at $27,100+tax+$198 doc fee
Mar 31, 2010 (8:37 pm)
We went to buy EXL with RES after we agreed the final price of $30,700+TTL over the phone. This is a decent price in midwest, really need this badly. Make a story short, we don't like the color on EXL, but there is a EX with RES that has color my wife loves most. So my wife gave up leather seats, moon roof, other great features:-), but spent $3600 less with EX before tax. Really didn't plan for this EX that only has 5 miles on it. Test drove this, loved it. All my research was focused on EXL-RES and my mind was set for it as well. Well my wife will drive this van all the time, I am OK if she is happy even though I wanted EXL.
Overall very happy with the purchase, great car! love the EXL with noise cancellation tech, well my wife is OK with the EX. We wouldn't buy this one if it doesn't have RES. Like other people shared that we don't want to take my new van to Bestbuy for installation. Tomorrow I am going to buy a nice Weber grill:-) by the way, sales manager and sales person were so nice and didn't push to buy any thing. Oh, forgot to mention all cars here has splash guard and small other features.
You can get a better deal than mine, but as I mentioned that it is so difficult to get the price down in mid west if you don't have a car to trade in.
Previously I received a quote of $30,300 with $599 doc fee at a different dealer, they told me that there was a calculation error just before I was ready to drive 130 miles to buy it. Felt so bad.
Wish everyone good luck! I already applied the skills learned from here. Believed I tried my best and tried hard:-)

Can't comment about your OTD price because different regions have different associated fees. But your starting point for negotiation would have been 38020 (factory invoice) - $829 (holdback) - $1250 (cash incentive) = $35940, plus TTL. You'll need to forgo the Honda financing incentive. But it's now April 1st, and the incentives may have changed by now.... not to mention the start of a new month and a new quarter and the resetting of sales quotas.

After dealing for 4 days and researching all the post here and truecar.com, etc I finally made deal in Arkansas for $ 29,800.00 for EXL with splash guards, cargo mat and tankk of gas. I probably could have gotten a little less but was tired of the hassle. One dealer had offered a little less but did not have the color I wanted and dhe had spent all day trying to get it ( I think the other dealers were holding the white because I had been online or on the phone with them for one) the dealer I bought from had the car on the lot and the salesman was much more attentive. The dealer who had tried to get my color was the same one who 3 years ago tried to raise the price by $800.00 after we had made the deal and came back to me saying they had to charge more to get my color brought in from out of state. So I went out of state myself and visited friends and saved all but my time and gas money.
The 29,800. is total cost plus Taxes ( as in Arkansas we pay those later directly to the revenue office) Not as good a deal as seen in the forum but guess it was best I could do here and with the time restrictions I had to purchase.
I am now on the search for the extended warranty-- I called the dealer's finance guy and told him about the online cost and he said Honda did not even have a 8 year /120,000 mile warranty ( guess I should have had that information prior to the deal-- but will go to the dealers mentioned in the forum.

Congrats... it sounds like you got the car you wanted at a reasonable price. We got ours not too long ago and plan to inaugurate it on our first trip to see the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC.
#25004 of 30569 Honda Incetives for April
Apr 01, 2010 (9:39 am)
Dealer confirmed March incentives retained for April
#25005 of 30569 Purchased an Odyssey EX-L
Apr 01, 2010 (10:15 am)
My wife finally got a new van. Purchased 03-31-2010. She got the Odyssey EX-L in Polished Metal Metallic with Grey Leather.
$28510.40 Sale Price
$ 294.50 DOC and title fees
$ 1869.42 Ohio 6.5% Sales Tax (no trade in or dealer financing)
$30674.32 Out the Door.
No extra accessories or options on the van. Dealer had to drive ~250 miles one way to trade for the color she wanted. No extra charges for locating or getting the van. Dealer did not try to sell us any accessories, or even an extended warranty.
Transaction began by contacting several Honda internet sites. Went with the lowest price. Did not try to negotiate the price any lower.
Very satisfied with the purchase. Best part is the selling dealer is less than two miles from where my wife works. Will be very handy for service.
Dealer only had one van left yesterday when we picked up her new purchase. This time last year they had about 25 to 30 on the lot.
Dealt with the internet department of Castrucci Honda, Miamisburg, Ohio.
Waited several months for the new Sienna to make its appearance. Were really disappointed in several aspects of the 2011 Sienna. It does have some appealing features, but the Odyssey won out.
#25006 of 30569 zag.com quote on EXL/RES
Apr 01, 2010 (10:28 am)
I am not sure how much the incentives changed from March to April. However, there is still definitely a manufacturer-to-dealer incentive.
My zag.com quote was $30,191 last month and is now $30,122... for what it's worth.
