#29454 of 30574 Honda Odyssey EX-L Bought 11/30
Dec 01, 2012 (4:35 am)
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!!

I am interested in Touring elite and I live in N Va. Let me know if you interested in buying as a group.
#29458 of 30574 2013 Odyssey Touring Elite - $41,500 OTD good?
Dec 02, 2012 (5:37 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.

I just posted about the quotes I've received for a Touring Elite - $41,500 OTD. What have you found in the N.Va area?
#29460 of 30574 2012 exl with res
Dec 03, 2012 (7:29 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.

That is a great price, I think I paid about 500 more than that for my elite and thought I did very well.

Does this price include taxes?
Dec 03, 2012 (12:15 pm)
2012 EX-L RES Celestial Blue
$32,600 + state sales tax +DMV
(that price includes destination, doc fees etc.)
I tried for an EX-L without options, but only found 1 in my area in the color we needed... I say needed since my wife was completely set on that. That dealer wouldn't play ball, the pricing was the same at that dealer for the 2012 base EX-L as I was getting quotes for 2013s. So rather than going 2013, I opened it up to RES models, and got the above deal. Overall, I wanted a bit better pricing based upon what I've seen here, however, I'm in an area that was affected significantly by the Hurricane, and 2012s were in short supply and dealers weren't being super aggressive in pricing. So considering that, I'm pretty happy with my deal, got the car I wanted, in the color I wanted, and basically got the RES for free, considering that 2013s were priced at the same amount.
the other weird mix in the market place, you'd think with the Hurricane that used cars would be selling great, not the case on the private party side. it wasn't easy, and people seemed scared about flood cars, even if there is nothing wrong with the car, I am about 3 miles north of the areas affected at all. Although I did better than the low ball trade price I got at 1 dealer.
