I would check in with the dealer stanleychs1437 received the 30K EXL quote from to see what they can do for the EXL Res. 30K for a base EXL with a couple of options is great- hopefully they can work magic on one with RES too for you. You may just find yourself on a road trip to VA.
As for the screen and kids, we stick to the dual monitors on the back of the front seats for our three kids and it seems to do the job. No, its not as fancy as RES unit but $100 or so vs over a grand made our decision easy. I guess its really up to personal preference and what you are willing to spend. If you do opt for the RES make sure you get enough headphones for everyone

Bought yesterday for $30,900 (van price - does not include tax/doc/license)
It was an old invoice unit. Honda did raise prices in mid April.
Thanks to all who posted their prices here. It really helped while shopping.
#28971 of 30058 Deposit and price
Jun 16, 2012 (12:19 pm)
I found a few really good prices and I ended up putting a deposit to hold a specific color. Well since then I have gotten 2 quotes cheaper. I did the deposit over the phone so I have no receipt. Am I stuck with the current car?
I got messed up because some of the quotes included destination and some didn't. The person told me the destination wasn't included but when I checked against the other quotes I had one was around the same if you took into account it had destination. The other quote was for NAVI when we didn't want NAVI. I didn't realize it and they called back today and quoted me without navi for around $500 less which is what I deposited so I guess at this point I have to stick
My quotes were for EX-L (no Navi or RES) and they came in at 30795, 30953, and the one I ended up with was 31276 (they quoted 30446 before destination). not a huge deal I guess but I was a little ticked I screwed up. I should have taking one more day to go over it all. The 30953 one was closer to my house and they would have thrown in a few oil changes from what it looks like. I was a bit blinded by prices I got since they were so low. All of these are under the listed dealer cost I found online.
This is the Chicago Area and I was looking at cars delivered before April 3 which is a limited supply at every dealer which is why they didnt' all have the color we wanted. They have so many on the lot though that I have to believe these good deals will be around until the 2012s are gone.

Yes ,I am still visiting the forum,I bought our 2012 Odyssey Ex from Paul miller Honda,westcaldwell,NJ,they are the best dealing dealer I met. I bought my van within 1 hour(Paul miller won't give you an online pricing Quote). It is good to get the online on the Road price from dealers and print the lowest and go to them they will beat the price.(Now the price for odysssey is getting much lower thanApril,Co's 2013 model about to start so,you can get an EXL model within 31,000/- on the road).

Hey everyone. Just reporting back, we finally purchased the EX-L base for around $29,900 including destination and splash guard. This is lower than the price I mentioned before of $30k including destination and splash guard, wheel locks, and pin stripes.
I wanted to let everyone know that, when price matching quotes between dealerships, be sure to note which ones include mandatory options and which ones don't. In this case I got this $30k quote including these options only because I emailed them my previous best offer including these dealer-added options. When I went to pick up the car it turns out that this dealership did not put these options on yet, so I was able to decline on the options and save a little bit more. In short, some dealerships put on options on all vehicles, some don't, if they don't, and your price match quote includes the options, just say you don't want them and save more money!
Overall I had a good purchase experience at Pohanka Honda in Fredericksburg, VA. At first I was worried that I would not get the price as promised, but when I got there the manager agreed that the price is as discussed, had the color I wanted waiting for me so we just went straight to the paperwork!
I did however purchase a third party extended warranty for 8years/100k miles for $1164. I found out later that this is through a company called Automotive Warranty Services (based in Chicago) and NOT HondaCare. I will be cancelling and getting a refund for this.
I also purchased GAP since I can supposedly get the money back when my loan becomes right-side up (as opposed to upside down when I drive the car off the lot and it loses value immediately when I still owe the full price for the vehicle on the loan). What do you all think of GAP?
