#29654 of 30028 2013 EX-L in Atlanta market
Feb 12, 2013 (12:57 pm)
I just bought a 2013 EX-L this past weekend. Listed below are the internet price quotes I received from Atlanta-area Honda dealers (exclusive of sales tax and tag fee):
- $31,944 (via Truecar.com)
- $32,221 (via Truecar.com vs $31,934 from the same dealer via email)
- $33,332 (via Truecar.com)
In my experience, getting a competitive price-quote isn't very difficult - it's the trade-in offer where they hope to beat you out of the most money. I went in with printed trade-in values from both Kelly Blue Book and NADA Guide as well as a fair trade-in offer from another Honda dealer. I also printed out Carmax retail prices on cars like my trade. When the selling dealer low-balled me on my trade-in, I was able to cut him off and threaten to walk away unless he made a serious and competitive offer. Shady tactics and twisted logic not withstanding, I paid what I wanted to for the Odyssey and got what I wanted for my trade-in (and, yeah, the dealer still made more money than he should have).

Did you get them to meet KBB or NADA? My dealer is telling me those numbers are too high, and offering way less than either of those (ugh!)

Anyone got a similar deal ($39K not including tax - MSRP is ~$44,500) for a Touring Elite in So. CA? I talked to several dealers and they all said they would match it. When they showed me the #s, they either throw in $1K-2K of useless options or increase the interest rate to jack up the price.
please let me know if there is a more honest dealer here in So. CA.

can you share which dealership did you work with?

Forgot to mention that the trim for the above price paid in SO CAL is the Honda Odyssey 2013 EXL with RES.
The dealer I worked with was Norm Reeves Honda West Covina. They came out with the most aggressive quote right from the start and was pretty much the only dealership I found that would negotiate over email and would actually honor their quotes. All in all, I was impressed with them.

I haven't logged on since 2006 when we bought our Mazda5. We had 2 kids back then, ages 4 and 2, and a mini-van seemed like a cavern. Now we have 3 kids, ages 10, 8, and 4 and the Mazda5 seems like a clown car.
Anyway, we are very happy with today's purchase of a 2013 Honda Odyssey EX in Celestial Blue!
We purchased it from Kokomo Auto World in Kokomo, IN. Here are the details:
$28,600 - total price ($27,830 + $830 destination)
$2,002.00 - 7% Indiana sales tax
$149.00 - doc fee
$1.25 - tire tax
$30,752.25 total price.
We had planned to buy a heavily discounted new 2012 Sienna that had been languishing on the lot and test drove the Odyssey just for fun. We quickly discovered the Odyssey was superior to the Sienna in almost every way, except that the MSRP was $5,000 more than the Sienna's sale price.
Needless to say, we were were shocked when the salesman came back with a first offer that was almost $4,000 off sticker, $1,333 below invoice, and within $1,000 of the Sienna. Then again, by the time he made us the offer, we'd been there for 4 horus and it was 15 minutes before closing on a chilly Saturday in February. Oh, and we got the 0.9% financing for 60 months.
We are excited!
