Thanks for the tip on truecar.
Costco is great, it sets a nice bar and eliminates the fat. I've been able to get better but not by much.

I was quoted for $38,000 for a 2012 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite Silver Van Passenger + taxes and other dealership fees.
Is that good price given its 2012 ? Please advice.

So far two best prices I found on the touring are the internet price at Brilliance Honda in Crystal Lake $37,485 plus TTL. Email states dealer installed options are not included. So, hopefully there is no "game" there.
The other is the Costco price of $36,994. I don't know if that includes destination or not. I am hoping to confirm that tomorrow. If it includes destination it is pretty close to employee pricing. Ill post if anyone is interested.

#29638 of 30055 Honda Odyssey - Buying Experience 2013 EX-L (Northern Virginia)
Feb 04, 2013 (12:56 pm)
Following the spirit of others, I'm paying it forward on our buying experience for a new Odyssey 2013. We test drove a few cars during the month and had contact with three different dealers in the area.
We only asked for the Out the Door price and got three different ones from 33400 - 33900.
We are in Virginia and went to Fairfax Honda two days before the end of the month.
It was a Tuesday at 3 pm and there was NO one there. We had used Truecar.com and other sites to get the ballpark price which as around $33,600. We were only looking at the EX-L as we have had our last EX-L for 10 years.
I have been following the posts on this forum to see what the going rates were. I found a post from someone in Oregon who quoted the OTD price of $32,500 which was the lowest I had seen. So, our goal was to beat that price.
We walked in and asked for the guy who gave us the Internet quote but he wasn't in. We worked with another guy and told him we wanted $32,000 OTD.
After some hemming and hawing (no more than 15 minutes) he came back with $32,400 which was $1500 less than we had quotes for over the internet.
I then walked outside and we called the other two different dealers to see if they were willing to have us drive over. In both cases, the guys "acted" surprised and told us to take those deals because they couldn't beat them.
So, OTD $32,400.
No trades, no financing, etc. In the end, pretty easy process. Not sure its the best deal out there but we felt like it was pretty good.
As a side note, I went back to the dealership on Saturday afternoon to hand in some paperwork. It was a COMPLETE SHOW. Every table was booked, there was fast talking and it seemed so slimy.
I'd recommend the place but would go during the downtime.
Happy to share the sales guy's name we worked with if folks want it.

Costco is $36,994 + TTL.
As an FYI, quoting OTD prices is not very helpful to those of us in a different geographic location, since sales tax rates are different, plus trade-ins, dealer options, etc. can "skew" those numbers. Just a thought.

Thank you, thats helpful and yet another data point! I agree that OTD prices are not as helpful as final price + TTL.
