Jun 20, 2012 (2:20 pm)
Looking at one of these to buy in the next few days and it appears on here that 32,500 should be a reasonable place to be, I subscribed to Consumer Reports pricing service that shows the incentives/holdbacks and it seems to suggest actual dealer cost in iowa is 33,194 (partially due to a regional advertising expense of 366) but accounting for both incentives and holdbacks and INCLUDING destination fee. Given the broad appearance that 32500 is a fair place to be on this car do you think CR's data is wrong? are these posters in the 32500 neighborhood not including desination? If that were the case there is the answer. I hate to be unreasonable with dealers in terms of starting point but I also do not want to leave money on the table by starting with CR's apparent actual dealer cost if it is wrong. Thoughts? Dealer has at least 2 or 3 of the one I want on hand and 25 or so odysseys total if that matters.

It seems that there are significant regional differences...Just bought an EXL with Navi in White/beige (no extras) in Sacramento. Bought from Maita Honda but Roseville was same. Checked with multiple dealers in Northern California--had a popular color combo so most dealers did not have it. Called around and worked with the 2 that gave best price. Probably could have negotiated more and gotten better price but felt this was decent.
Here are the numbers:
Paid $33,789 (NOT inc. destination/taxes/ fees /extras)
Gave me $7,750 on 05 Odyssey trade in with 120K miles.
If I had to do again, I would read more from this this blog, get a printed quote from Spreen in Southern California and either get from Spreen or see if anyone would match up here.
Hope this helps!

Bought an Odyssey with Navi in Sacramento yesterday-did not go with the warranty offered at dealership. Instead did some research at home and found (from this blog!) that Saccucci offers the Hondacare (120K miles, $0 deductible) for $1295. They can sell to CA vehicles-- and it is much better coverage than the CNA one offered by my dealer and much better price than Hondacare policy from local Honda dealers.
#28996 of 30027 Odyssey 2012 touring michigan 37K
Jun 20, 2012 (7:17 pm)
Thank you for that great post. I do not post here but given the great suggestions you and others mentioned before, let me contribute. Also, there are very few posts from southeast michigan (metro detroit), so i want to assist those from here for their future buys.
I recently researched and bought an Odyssey 2012 Touring. I used the method you mentioned with some minor differences.
"2. At that point, select "request a quote" next to each dealer after you have list of dealers"
Oddly while i got a list of 15 or 20 dealers on searching for dealers, when i selected request a quote next to one of the choices, i would have to fill out my particulars, tel etc but then it would ask me again to choose a dealer. Here it only listed the five closest dealers and so while i could select any of those, the rest was not available.
To get around this, i noted the zip codes of the number 6 onwards dealers that i was willing to drive to and put their zip code or address to get those dealers as options to send emails to. I had to play with the address, zip codes as the software sometimes was too smart; even if i put part of my address, it would go to the earlier 5 dealers. May be it was using cookies from my browser.
In any case, i was able to mail about 7 dealers. All but one sent me quotes. Three were good and i pursued only the lowest two. Interestingly e-prices ranged from early 38s to very low 37s before state taxes, reg. When one offered me 37K before tax, title and license, i agreed. The other dealer agreed to also consider that price but i did not pursue as they did not have the colors i was looking for. After i bought the car, atleast one other dealer claimed he could match my price but i was not interested in a prolonged negotiation.
So final tally was 37K (including destination, doc fees) plus mi taxes (6%), license, registration, title for a Touring Cherry Red. By the way, smoky topaz seems very popular from talking to the dealers at this moment. So harder to bargain on that color.
The whole process was relatively painless and involved no haggling. So much better than haggling at the dealership!! Oh and costco price is higher. The place that does costco pricing would not tell me their price unless i came in but said they were higher than what i was getting. He even scoffed that my price was impossible for anyone!
Moral of the story, use above technique, keep communication by emails, ask for all fees to be included pre taxes. Even if you are a buyer that does not like to haggle, you will get a pretty good price with this method. Probably the great negotiators here on these forums will do even better. You know you have a good price when some dealers claim your price is impossible!
Now i hope the car works well for us.
Thanks everyone and good luck.
#28997 of 30027 Honda Odyssey 2012 EX-L with Nav Seattle
Jun 21, 2012 (11:52 am)
I have been reading through the forums getting an idea of pricing but I thought I would post. I am looking for a 2012 EX-L with Nav in the Seattle area.
Tried contacting some dealerships through various websites and so far I have been quoted $34,469. Which seems higher than some of you have spent. Wondering if anyone has recently had luck getting a better deal in the Seattle area.
On a side note: I have time and can make this purchase any time before the end of the year. Is there a better time to purchase? I have heard to wait for the 2013's and also to possibly wait for the holidays (when every one is spending money on gifts instead of new cars). Anyhow, any advice would be helpful.

July 9th there are 2 promos that expire, one is the .9 financing and the other is a manufacturer incentive, the former is a personal issue, the later means that effectively the van will cost the dealer $750 or so dollars more after July 9. Not to say there will not be another deal but this is pretty good
