#28395 of 30561 2012 EX-L w/ RES
Nov 28, 2011 (9:12 am)
My husband and I bought a 2012 Odyssey EX-L w/ RES at White Allen Honda in Dayton, OH over the weekend. We went less than 2 hours before closing, they could tell we were serious about buying and were very aggressive (in a good way) to make the deal happen. Our USAA quote said $34,010, so we were hoping to match or beat that. I just asked them straight up, what's the best you can do....first offer came back $33,595 + ttlf. We were very pleased, but didn't show it. We acted like it wasn't good enough, and got them to go down to $33K even. Although we live and purchased in OH, we are legal residents of FL and decided to register there (military)...so I guess we saved 1/2% in taxes.
Here is the breakdown:
2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ RES (Dark Cherry Pearl II, Beige leather):
Base Price: $33,000
Doc Fee: $250
FL Taxes (6%): $1980
Total OTD Price: $35,281
Before going to the dealership, we went to get our 2007 Civic Hybrid appraised at CarMax. They offered us $12K, so we at least had that in our back pocket. Dealership only offered $9800 for the trade-in, so we declined. Decided to finance $20K at 0.9% for 36 months, and wrote them a check for the difference.
We were very pleased with the deal. From everything I'm reading here and all the website quotes, I think we did great!

Got a white+truffle from Rusty Wallis here in Dallas.
Base: $32,120 (with window tint, paint/fab protection, body molding, cargo tray etc.)
Total OTD: $34,500 (6.5% tax + ~$374 of other fees)
For RES, I bought a 10.1" Toshiba Thrive tablet for $279 and linked with the system via Bluetooth, hang it on the ceiling (slide into the sunroof gap).
There are 2 other dealers who promised to beat this price but I figure not by much as they won't tell me the price over the phone. I don't like to do business that way, so I went with RW.

2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ RES for $33k is a very good deal.
So it looks like dealers and Honda are slowly coming to realty.Given the economy and Europe crisis they can't stick to these unfair prices.

Bought the Odyssey today at Bobby Rahal Honda in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Traded in my 2005 model Odyssey (same features) that had 118,000 miles on it. Paid $32,650 for the vehicle, $1,446 in tax, and about $310 in other fees, for a total of $34,406. Received $9,300 for the trade, costing me $25,106 out the door. I declined all the dealer offered warranties and products.
I agree with earlier posts; Honda is finally willing to earn your business.

$32,650 include destination charge also?

Looks like the destination charge is included in $32,650. If we add up her final cost($34,406=$32,650+$1,446 +$310 ) it proves it.
That is the best deal for 2012 Odyssey EX-L w/RES I have ever seen on this post.
