Congrats on a great deal! How in the world did you get such a great price? Invoice for EXL with RES is 34493. Take out $2500 in current incentives and you have 31993 (for car price plus destination). Anything lower than that, wouldn't the dealer be losing money?? Can you share any insight on this for me? I'm currently in the negotiating process.

Forget invoice prices...you need to look at what people are paying. The dealers wont lose money - they just wont sell. You need to start negotiating by email...and then follow up for a few more rounds in the showroom. Walk at least once....
#29982 of 30581 Financing through Honda?
May 04, 2013 (6:50 pm)
Today, I got a quote for EX through Internet.
Car Total 27618.73
Processing fee 398.5
VA Taxes 896.55
VA Tags 55.75
The dealer says it is required to finance with AHFC (American Honda Finance Corporation) in order to receive the internet price. The rate can be as low as 0.9%.
I have a pretty good credit rating, so probably can qualify for the rate.
I have no experience with auto financing (paid with cash in the past).
So, here are a few questions.
1) Do I "really" have to finance with AHFC to get the price? Or is this something I can get away with? For example, by paying with cash.
2) I'm wondering what kind of pitfalls I should be aware of when financing through Honda.
How did the process go for you guys? What find of fees do I need to expect?
3) Is it a good idea to talk with local banks first anyhow?

Contacted almost all the dealers in 50 miles radius for the quotes thru email and got the OTD prices ranging from 35,000 to 34,300. Called a sales person from whom my friend purchased honda pilot in past and told him to beat 34,3000 and he did it. We are going to pick one more EX-L RES next week for same price(this is for my friend)

In what state and area did you buy???
May 05, 2013 (3:56 pm)
Just got a Odyssey EX-L with RES for 31,750(30,650 price + 1,100 ttl, taxes) On the road in VA.
Had to take Honda finance to get this price. The above price includes a 750$ honda finance closing assistance
Does this sound like a reasonable price?

Windman88 I hope you don't mind my asking. I just bought a touring as well. My out the door price was 38,500 but my tax is over 7 percent. My purchase price of the vehicle was 36k. Based on your tax rate that puts your car's purchase price at around 35,500? Anyone else in Atlanta looking to buy a honda odyssey I'd be glad to help compare numbers to help you get the best deal possible. I'd appreciate it if anyone else could post their purchase and out the door price on a touring they just bought. Thanks
