#26912 of 30025 2011 EX-L Pricing in Southern Cal
Nov 10, 2010 (12:38 pm)
Looking to buy an EX-L in Southern California. Best quote so far was about 35,612 OTD. Anyone else bought one in the area lately and can chime in with advice or suggestion. Thanks.

35,612 OTD for EX-L is not bad at all, so I guess selling price is about 32,500 that is almost 3 thoudsands off MSRP, a lot of people here on this forum did not believe price would drop this much within 1 month for Odyssey when they paid MSRP for the Van few weeks ago, now they can see it. I think 35,200 OTD should be reasonable & obtainable.
What dealer? I think Cerritos dealer has good price.

Nov 10, 2010 (3:06 pm)
I swear the Dallas area is sticking so close to MSRP I am seriously going to buy a Sienna SE (which is the better looking by far with the new face update).
I just read the latest Motor Trend which compared the SE with the EX-L and gave 1st place to the SE. Bigger engine, better handling, and a 6 speed trans for less than the EX-L. The Toyota dealers are at least closer to invoice than the Honda dealers here. We have been Odyssey drivers for 10 years, but about to be Toyota converts. I think $500 off MSRP is the best I have seen here.

That was from Moss Bro in Moreno Valley. They stated selling price as 32,228. Cerritos internet price was 34,430 +TTL. I'm not in a rush so holding out for 35K OTD, but it looks like there's more deals along the east coast than here in Cali. Anyone else been able to score anything close to 35K? Hoping it will get there maybe by end of Nov.

if you are to buy at end of Nov then 35k OTD for EX-L is a sure bet.
If you can wait to next Feb-March time frame then you would see more drop in price by then, remember by March most dealers have only 6 months remained to get rid of 2011 model because 2012 will be coming next Oct. I expect some incentive from Honda in next 6 months for Odyssey, but for some of us the question is if we can wait or not. If you can please wait, only buy what you "need", not what you "want" in this economy.

I do have the luxury of time on my hand so I plan to wait it out. I'm sticking to my target of 35K OTD but it seems like all the dealers around southern california are just not in the mood to deal yet. Too new probably.

Southern CA is not discounting on Odyssey as fast as other states because simply they can survive by selling more Civic, Accord, Pilot here compare to other states (more young people live in CA than any other areas), so dealers don't care to budge MSRP yet for Ody, but wait a bit more time when the big boss ask them why they don't have a good sale in Ody or when they realize they are falling behind other states in selling Ody they will jump. Other states are discounting big time on Ody because they did not sell good on other models......

Unfortunately to get an Elite the dealers in the NE region are all asking for a deposit, most will have to do a factory order unless they already have one inbound.
I did visit 2 dealerships today, and the one that originally said he needed a check agreed to take a CC for the deposit.
My trade came in way lower than I thought so I did not complete the transaction today, but I shopped it around and didn't do much better elsewhere. I think I will call back tomorrow and finalize the deal. AutoSport in NJ, VERY straight forward and personable salesman.
