#12357 of 15568 Pilot 2009 EX no Leather
Jan 18, 2009 (7:48 pm)
Went to the dealer who leased me my 2006 Pilot. After Test Drive and letting the sales person pitch , came to a Price of $28,895 with destination, I challenged got an internet price of $28,202 w/des. Told them still deceiding on Pilot of another competitior. I read here some where of the dealer having a "Loyalty" rebate that they can offer if a customer was thinking of switching, anyone familiar with that?.
I still feel that I should be able to close on the '09 EX for under 28K. Any Thoughts.I have till Febuary 14th should I wait and see what come from Honda after 2/6/09 in incentives ?

I will bet the price will go down instead of up in Feb. The current incentive will end 2/2 and interested to see the next incentive.

We got $27925 incl dest on an AWD EX no Leather from two different dealers, so you should be able to go under $28K. Both dealers did confirm that we'd take their in stock vehicle for that price.

What was your purchase price before tax and title? Did you purchase any additional accessories. I was thinking 34k including the incentive before tax/title without any additional accessories. Haven't gotten there with any dealers yet. I'm also thinking that the rebates should be even better in February. Doing a lot of thinking but not a lot of buying. The exact opposite of what the gov't and the car dealers want me to do.

The deal we just closed including destination fee was $28,900, down in Texas, for a 2009 Black Pilot EX-L 2WD. We also got the black side steps installed for $558 extra. Total price including tax and all fees (but not the side steps) was $30,850.
#12363 of 15568 Are these good deals for cars that are on lot or cars that are ordered?

For these great deals you are all getting, are these for a car you found on a dealer lot or for a car that you order? I assume the former but just want to make sure.
I have only bought one new car in my life (1996 Saturn which I ordered to my specs) which involved zero haggling, negotiating etc. so I don't know how this is done.
I guess the point of my question is.. if one is very picky, won't it be a lot harder to find a great deal since the amount of possible cars is so small? e.g.. if I want an exact car, let's say a silver 2WD EX-L with beige interior with no nav and no dvd, would that be hard to get a deal on? As opposed to walking in with an "I'll take almost anything" attitude and the dealer is happy to give you a deal on a certain color car b/c he has 10 of them and only 5 of the other colors.
I'm new to new car buying so thanks in advance!

Could you tell me which part of Texas you are in? I want exactly the same model with a dvd and my best price so far is still $2,000 (only for RES) more than what you paid.

Dealers will attempt to get you to take something from inventory because a deal isn't a deal until you've rolled over the curb with a Temp Tag. If the time it takes to locate a vehicle goes beyond the end of an incentive, then quotes including that incentive probably won't be honored. Also, there will be costs to the dealer in making a trade with another dealer, trade drivers to be paid, giving up something out of their own inventory etc. So they'll attempt to get you onto a specific vehicle before making their best offer.
However, they could make the same deal for you on a vehicle they'd have to find that they can on one in stock. If it really came down to it, they'll do it.

Did you have a trade in? Seems like a GREAT price. I am wondering if they stole your trade in though???
