Are you talking about Albany City in NY or GA
If you are talking about NY I bought a 1996 Civic from Albany City and vowed to never buy again from this dealership. Very bad experience. I purchased my 2000 Odyssey in June from Keeler Honda in Latham, NY and would strongly recommend. At the time I bought my van Keeler charged MSRP and included floor mats and mud guards. They only asked for $100.00 refundable deposit and no hidden costs and add-ons. I also received the van in about 2 months. I would check with Keeler first before committing to Albany City. Just my 2K cents.

Just bought EX, asked to pay $1,200 for a warranty. Went ahead and bought, but told I can cancel w/in 90 days. Is this the going price for the warranty? Can I get just a good as warranty over the net? The warranty is for 5/100k mi. BTW 6 wk wait and MRSP + destin. please reply, thanks

My guess is that you paid little attention to this forum over the last 3-4 months. In many posts, the Hondacare 7yr./$0 ded./100k mile wty. has been bought for $885-$895. My dealer quoted me their cost ($810).
Yours is 5 yrs? May not be a Hondacare which is considered the best type to purchase.
Use the 90 days return policy, and read this forum more often. Don't be taken by these guys!!
#429 of 30584 I got a discount AND didn't have to wait!!!

I just wanted to mention a salesman I dealt with on the Internet. He sold me a 2001 EX in Dark Green for $200 off MSRP and had the car in stock.
He said if I wanted any other color besides Beige he would have it by the middle of December at the same discount price. I guess he gets more Odysseys then other dealers. His name is Dennis and you can email him at JAYHONDADJaol.com. I am picking mine up this weekend, Dennis was wonderful.

Bought my ody on tuesday for msrp from bellevue. renton honda called me today and said through the month of december the Sales Manager is ALLOWING them to sell for msrp plus whatever they have added on. Alos on the warranty you should not be paying tax. Some one a few respnse previous said they paid tax on the warranty and several dealers told me ther is NO TAX on the warranty.
I beginning to think the price of the odyis going to come down over the next few months.
#433 of 30584 Central Florida Dealers?

Has anyone bought an Odyssey in the Central Florida area recently? What dealership did you user and what did you pay?
I'm looking to get a 2001 LX.
#434 of 30584 Trade In?
Dec 02, 2000 (3:42 am)
For Oddy owners that bought but to wait months on a waiting list for their cars- Did you negotiate the price on your trade in when you put your deposit down? Or did you just put your deposit down and just hoped to get what you expected on your trade when your odyssey arrived?
#435 of 30584 Jans4 - SO CA Dealers
Dec 02, 2000 (4:08 am)
Jans4 - WE bought our 2001 EX\SS from Penske Honda in Ontario. Dealt with Mark Henry from fleet dept. Avoid general sales department we heard them on the phone quoting MSRP plus mandatory 1000+ of options and a 3 month wait.
I sent e-mail to all the dealers within 100 miles of us (using Honda web site/dealer locator) saying that I would pay MSRP and wanted SS or TW.
The van we got was ordered for someone else who backed out that morning.
We did get a lot of calls from other dealers who said we'd have to pay over or pay for options we didn't want.
Use the internet & don't pay over!
