Honda Odyssey, Van
Nov 29, 2000 (12:45 am)
The Honda Dealership on Route 1 in Alexandria, had a GG 2001/nav on Saturday that was not spoken for. I test drove it. As I was test driving, I did not talk price. I spoke with Ms. Lloyd. I doubt, they will come down to the UBS price. I still am driving my 1986 Honda Accord which is going strong. However, I'm not sure I want to wait a year for my Odyssey. I have not heard any plans by Honda for a special edition 2001 Space Odyssey coming out (it would have been a great marketing tool- buy I guess they can sell all they make), so have settled on GG. I'd be happy to find someone to sell it to me for $500 or so under MSPR. Did you find anyone in the DC area that was close? The other buying service through my credit union could get me an Odyssey through Hersons Honda in MD (we bought through them the last time we bought a Honda - 1995 and they were great) at MSPR.
Thanks for the info.

Anyone have some info about Southeast MI Honda dealers and Odyssey prices? There are two in the Ann Arbor area, but I'm not sure where I'll get the best price and/or service. Any help is appreciated.

Stay away from the Lansing dealer, they are jerks. They will sell you what they want to sell you. No color choice and their service sucks. I drive 60 miles to Grand Rapids for all mine.

We're starting the search for a minivan and would appreciate any advice on dealers in Washington State. Also what are prices being generally quotes for either an EX or LX and the waiting period if any?
Thanks in advance.

Looking for an L.A. dealer who will sell a 2001 EX below MSRP and without dealer add ons. Carsdirect.com's price is $965. above MSRP. Wow, what a bargain! Please share your experiences.

It would be great to find Odysseys at ANYTHING below MSRP, however, with supplies being low and demand being high prices seem to be at MSRP. The problem we are having is getting enough Odys to satisfy current demand.
#413 of 30568 Just leased a 2001 EX....
Nov 29, 2000 (2:45 pm)
....without leather. It included cloth seats and dealer threw in seat covers.
Leased for 48 months (dealer gave ma 48-month warranty) and 15K per year from South Motors Honda in Miami.
$477/month including tax. Compared it to other dealers and this was about $20 cheaper than anyone else. And Honda's fiscal year ends in November, not December.
What do you all think?

we just bought an ex a bellevue off the lot. they had several in and seem to be getting them in often. Renton honda also seems to get them often and do nto do a waiting list. they were having a sale for $600 offf over thanksgiving weekend and Seattle Honda was $1000 over msrp. I think there is a little room to bargain because they arenn't preselling as much as they were 6 months ago.

I've been on the UBS waiting list since June 2000. Contacted them once a month which they continue to say that the wait was 4 to 6 months. Just called them last week, now they say that I may have to wait to June 2001 before getting my EX. Has anyone run into this situation?
I'm not in a dire need to get the van, but the way they play this game makes me mad. They have you wrapped around their finger when you're on the UBS list.
Jim Coleman Honda has many EX 2000 and 2001 available, but are selling for $28,000. Whoa!!!
I guess because they are located in a somewhat $ area gives them the right to sell it at that price. Maybe when I hit the lottery then I will buy it at that price.
Sorry, I'm just griping. Hope everyone gets their van.

I see a whole new group of names hangin around here these days. Haven't posted since the summer, and my original search started back in the spring. This is economics in the U.S., the old supply and demand again. Figured I would wait it out, thought for sure by this time of the year prospects for a 2001 might be better, but unfortunately nothing has changed. Still hearin from the internet managers, 'one on the lot and if you want it's yours for $1000 above MSRP', heard it all before!! Another thing, more and more commercials on the tube, more and more Odys on the road. Anyone shoppin in the NY Tri-state area, have any luck with any of the dealers round here?
