#29451 of 30041 Re: 2013 Odyssey EX-L with Navi [sachmogoat]

Yesterday I bought my 2012 Odyssey EX-L from NJ Joyce Honda for 32466 OTD [including TAX etc etc]+ 200 extra for roof rails [without roof rails, odyssey looks like shit].
One good thing about Joyce Honda is that they dont add too much stuff with their Internet Pricing. But still I had a disagreement with them. During our negotiation, I asked for OTD price since that is my main issue.
I was told 32700. I asked it to bring it down for 32000 and they declined it. Finally manager came and told me to meet my demand in the middle. So we finally agree for $32466.
I signed the approval to do credit check and while I was signing other docs, I was asked to sign the Registration sheet and it stated as "Cash on Delivery". I refused to sign it since the agreement was 32466 OTD and if I add the registration, it will add another 400+ into the total.
The sales person told me that they collect with everyone and since they dont know the exact amount of registration, they can not exactly charge me. I denied that claim and showed one of my friend's purchase where the other car dealer charged him only $399.
I told them that I am always ready to walk away if we dont meet what I agreed earlier. And I walked out of the showroom. Since I cant take my car out of the parking [another showroom car parked behind my car], I came inside to ask them to take the car away. Finally manager called me to agree to pay the registration fee.
I still made few compromises...I wanted Black color and ended up with Silver. I wanted EXL-with RES and no one ready to meet my demand of $33500 OTD. So I gave up RES and only got EXL. I still feel that I should have got it for $32000 OTD and not a penny more.
But if you ask me..out of 10 online quotes, Joyce Honda, Denville is the one exactly synced with what they provided me online. All other dealers were bait and switch only.
For this reason, I drove almost 45 mins to see the showroom.

I went to Joyce Honda too. Same thing happened, the price jumped $400 and when I walked out, my car was blocked by another card (one of theirs). Coincidence?
Anyway, the manager, "Super XXrio" was very very pushy and I felt very uncomfortable dealing with him. This guy sits right by the door and to the left as soon as you enter the dealer. He's a total (you fill in the blank). The rest of the staff were nice.
Needless to say, I had super terrible experience and did not buy the car.
#29453 of 30041 2012 Odyssey Touring 38500 OTD
Nov 29, 2012 (2:02 pm)
purchased a 2012 Odyssey Touring 38500 OTD, The tax rate is 7% for first 5K, then 6.5% (tampa bay area). Comes with trunk tray, wheel lock, splash guard and door visor. The price is 35500 before all the fees/taxes, and I have a trade in for 3k (which bring the taxable to 32500). I know they made a few bucks on the trade in, but since it has been in a big accident before (cost insurance more than 10K to repair, although I don't understand why it cost so much to repair. without the accident, it will be between 5~6k for trade in according to kbb, edmunds, nana etc.), so decided to just trace in instead of sell it myself.
I get the 0.75% for 60 month, and got the extended warranty for 7yr/100k. I have 60 days to canel it without any fees. Guys, do you think i need the warranty or try my luck? I will keep the car at least for 7yr/100k.
#29454 of 30041 Honda Odyssey EX-L Bought 11/30

Once again, many thanks to all who take the time to post their purchase experience and suggestions on this board! This is the second purchase I have made with Edmunds and I recommend it ALL the time to my friends and family who cringe at the thought of purchasing a new car!
Called nine dealerships in the Albany, NY area. Went to four that had leftover 2012 Honday Odyssey EX-L (no Navi, no RES) that I would be interested in.
Narrowed it down to Keeler Honda in Latham, NY or Rensselaer Honda in Troy, NY.
Finally went with Rensselaer Honda.
2012 Honda EX-L, Cherry w/beige interior
60 months .9%
Got them to throw in wheel locks, all-weather mats, cargo tray & splash guards (it was $100 for wheel locks installed and $450 for the other package all installed--so these were free)
Paid $447 for the roof rails and crossbars
Haggled for my 2005 EX Odyssey at the very last minute and got them to come up to $4000 (poor EX had almost 150K and dents galore--generally in rough shape, though I shined her to a penny inside and out before driving it over to be looked at!!)
The absolutel LOWEST number for the car I could find in this area was $30,280 from Keeler Honda in Latham, but they wouldn't throw in the extras and didn't have any color I would tolerate. Would have loved the Topaz with truffle interior, but that would have had to be located somewhere and I wouldn't have had the extras.
So red it is!!

#29458 of 30041 2013 Odyssey Touring Elite - $41,500 OTD good?
Dec 02, 2012 (6:37 pm)
I've now got two formal quotes for a 2013 Odyssey Touring Elite at $41,500 OTD, in the Washington DC metro area. (I have a couple of others around the $41,700 mark.) Given the Honda holiday promotions that are currently in play, is this a good price or should I push for more/extras/add-ons?
Really appreciate the candor and advice in this forum! Thanks in advance for responding.

#29460 of 30041 2012 exl with res
Dec 03, 2012 (8:29 am)
Just bought a 2012 exl with res. After negotiations stalled I showed them an eprice I received from another dealer. Negotiations quickly came in my favor. Paid 32,500 and they threw in the all weather mats and are installing a remote starter for free. Also got .9% financing for 60 months. I have a cd right now paying 1.5% which makes using their money a no brainer. Most important thing is there are plenty 0f 2012's left in the Louisville Kentucky area so be firm if you're buying one.
