I just looked at their website (my nearest acura dealer). They are advertising a 2009 used tech model with 8,750 miles for $40,900. The asking price for the one that I saw on their lot (2008 tech/DVD with 24,500) is now only $37,900. I was there on Saturday, so they have come down $2K in 3 days. I don't know if this info helps you in any way, but I thought I would mention.
BTW, where in SoCal do u live? I lived in LA between '91 and '96. I lived in a number of different neighborhoods there, but spent the longest part in Santa Monica, 2 blocks from the 3rd St. Promenade.

Thanks for the info. I am in Marina Del Rey. 3rd st. promenade is great. i'm waiting to see what they're going to do with that mall since they tore it down like 3 years ago. Like I said, I have to somehow convince my wife that the offer is a good deal.

That seems like a good price with technology pkg. What dealer in socal? I am in PV and looking as well, but I also want entertainment. The best i have so far for that combo is $40,800.

I think I'm close to your area..what dealer you bought from? I see you mentioned $42.7K+3K tax for your purchase? when did you buy vehicle?
about our Linance manager blogging,I think everyone on board now understand what his act was about..I dont know if he deliberately meant to bash our thread or it's just a act of bored man sittin in his office since there's no customer's in his dealership (probably they let'em go over 1000$ argument )

It was Park Avenue Acura in Maywood, NJ. I bought the car less than a month ago. It was a 2009 with tech, entertainment and sport packages. Had 9,250 miles for it. Like I said, it was not that different in price from a brand new model, but the dealer convinced me that the extra warranty was worth it. Also, there seems to be a shortage of cars with running board which I liked about the car. I had two choices: either wait a few days and see if they would come down further (they came down $1,200 from the original asking) or risk losing it to someone else.

You know the quotes are initial offers, right? If you are serious about the purchase then negotiate for a lower price. For example:
E-mail the two dealers back and tell them what you want to pay, that your offer is firm and that you are ready to close immediately. They will counter with some other value. Take the lowest value from, say, dealer A and send an e-mail to dealer B offering dealer A's quote minus $500 and say final offer. If dealer B agrees, buy from him. If dealer B counters with a lower quote but not what you asked, repeat the same process using dealer B's new offer with dealer A. At some point you'll reach a value that you and one of them will agree is a deal.
You should be able to do the deal for $41k, shoot for $40k.

Am in the process of doing just that, was trying to find a dealer that some others had used. Most of my quotes are about the same, so was just going to pick 2. Is the tech pkg worth gettting? Have an odyssey touring now and am used to all the nice things it does.
