Honda Odyssey, Van
Aug 28, 2012 (6:31 pm)
I found this forum to be very helpful and decided to provide the details of our transaction to assist others.
We purchased a polished metal 2012 Odyssey EX-L with roof rack / x-bars, wheel locks, mud flaps, cargo tray and all season mats.
We originally dealt with Leith Honda and Autopark Honda in Raleigh. We were about to make a purchase from Honda Autopark for OTD price of $33,800. After discovering both dealerships were owned by the same firm, we contacted dealers outside our immediate area just before making the purchase. The additional dealers included Flow Honda (Winston-Salem), Honda of Hickory and Honda of Concord.
1. Flow Honda traded with Autopark and would only met the current price
2. Honda of Hickory likely did not take us as real customers and offered over $34K
3. Honda of Concord - after discussions gave us OTD of 32,999.
My wife is 8 months pregnant and did not want a five hour round trip for pickup. (And now you know why it is an Odyssey and not convertible). We were going to wait a day for pickup. To accommodate us, Honda of Concord drove the car to us.
The stats were as follows:
OTD = $32,999
Wheel locks, mud flaps, cargo tray = $271
Roof Rack/X-bar, Floor Mats = $578
Tax = 959
Doc = 499
Title = 72
Base Car = $30,621
Note - We negotiated the car and began adding options. By the end our negotiations were total with the options included. In order to best outline our transaction, I have used option pricing from the Honda website.
We were never able to get close to the deals seen on this forum from New Jersey and California. The North Carolina market is comprised of several large dealer networks (Leith, Hendricks, Sonic, etc). We had a good experience and are happy with the pricing and our purchase.

Hi samt2, I am in the market of getting price from dealer. I wonder how you get that low price. You went into the store in person or internet price? I got 30522 before any fees. Could you share your otd ? Thanks a lot

I got a quote from the dealer. She didn't want to disclose details/other fees except saying good price under 29k (reasonable?). Any suggestion whether there might be some catches (not new car or damages). It seems it is the basic price.

Hi, got a price on an EX-L, no Nav or RES.
Vehicle Price: $35,685.00
Market Savings: - $5,935.00
Vehicle Selling Price: $29,750.00
TRIM MASTERS PREMIUM: + $210.00
WHEEL LOCKS: + $88.00
SmartChoice Price: $30,048.00
Sales Tax (estimate): + $966.75
Tag/Registration Fees (estimate): + $67.50
Documentation Fee: + $449.00
Balance Due (estimate): $31,531.25
So 31,500 out the door, can i do better?
I should note that their first offer came in at 32,342 out the door:
The dropped out Perma plate protection cost
and reduced the wheel locks & trim master by 50% (dealer add in cost)
I plan to stand my ground at 31k out the door, but want to be sure then can actually do that.
