#28762 of 30584 2012 Odyssey EX-L Silver
Apr 12, 2012 (2:09 pm)
This site helped me on my purchase so I feel I need to post my experience to help others.
Just purchased a 2012 EX-L Silver this weekend in PA.
This is the EX-L without NAV/RES.
MSRP: 35685 ($34875 + $810 destination)
Purchase price: 31500
Doc/Reg/Misc charge: 176.50
6% PA tax: 1890
OTD: $33566.50 (if I deduct the $500 that Honda will pay on the 1st payment, it is like $33066.50)
Pay cash $15820.23 and finance at 0.9% on $17746.27. This will make the 1st payment at $500 exact. Honda will pay the 1st payment of $500. This is stated in my purchase document.
I was told that I can pay off the loan right after Honda pay the 1st payment.
Please keep this website going. It's a great site and it helped me on my last Odyssey 2001 and this 2012 purchases. Thanks to the host.

Hi. I saw in this forum that PA sales tax is 6% and NJ tax is 7%. Being a resident of NJ will I save some money if I'll buy my van (let's say EX-L NAV) in PA ?

No... you'll pay NJ tax, if you register the car in NJ, no matter where you buy it...

Apr 14, 2012 (5:17 pm)
We just purchased a 2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L White(my primary choice) today here in NJ at DCH Kay Honda in Eatontown. All negotiations were done via email. I started off with an email blast and of the quotes I received the one I closed shown below was the best.
Price : $30,900(inclusive of destination fees)
Tire Tax : $7.50
Sales Tax : $2163
Doc Fees : $299
Registration : $399
OTD : $33768.5
I further got the American Honda Finance deal at 1.9% + $500 off my first months installment. It was a very great experience, other than the final push to get some extra insurance there was no attempt to push anything else on me.

#28768 of 30584 2012 Honda Odyssey EXL Delaware
Apr 15, 2012 (2:57 pm)
After requesting quotes from all dealers in a 150 miles radius I got a 2012 Odyssey EX-L Silver (no NAVI or RES) the best offer was from Landmark Honda in Alexandria VA ( a 2 hrs drive for me....I dealt with Sales Rep Thomas Mcclendon) the guy gave me the OTD price from the beginning ($32,129)...no tricks. This is how it looks on paper:
Processing Fees -385
Taxes/Registration and fees- $1873.74 (3.75% Delaware tax)
They did sold me the warranty extension, which i can still cancel, ($0 deductible) from Honda America (8 years / 120K miles) for an additional $1500. Not sure on this but I will appreciate any inputs.
I hope this can help other people. Went to MartinHonda here in Newark, Delaware and their OTD price was $33,400

I forgot to add that I also got the 1st payment up to $500 and the 1.9% APR in top of the $32,129 OTD price.
For me it was worth the trip from Delaware to VA.... as I said a 2 hrs drive saved me over a $1,000 because no dealer around, including PA, NJ, DE or MD was able to compete.
Enjoy your shopping!!
