#29638 of 30577 Honda Odyssey - Buying Experience 2013 EX-L (Northern Virginia)
Feb 04, 2013 (11:56 am)
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.

The price mentioed above is just the dealer price and does it include the destination fee also. Could you post some more specifics about the price if possible.

The following is what I got from Sports Honda at Silver Spring. It's part of their email advertisement. Destination + TTL + $189 processing fee extra.
EXL RES $31,685*
Ourisman Bethesda's advertisement say their EXL is 30075 + dest + TTL + $200. Their ad was a picture so I cannot paste it here.
My local dealer (Virginia Beach) tried to convince me that these were leftover 2012 models, and offered OTD price that was almost $2000 more.
Fairfax Honda probably charges more processing fee as all Virginia dealers we've contacted do.
I've purchased two new cars over the last 5 years, an Accord and a Prius, and I drove up to MD to buy both.

That Fairfax honda price is for the Honda Odyssey EXL without any title+tag, processing and tax included.
I checked Criswell, Sport Honda, Fairfax, and Herson. The first three dealer gave roughly the same price 30300-30900. Herson is 32000+

This number sounds about right to my research. carbuyer2020 claimed to get a EXL model for 32400OTD from fairfax honda at the end of Jan. I just wonder whether it is real. I haven't got his email yet.
