This would be a great deal if...
EX-L RES MSRP is 37,565 incl. 670 des. chrg.
Invoice is 34,085; with market support (1500) direct dealer cost is 32,585. To make 399 work the selling price needs to be about 31,750. Out the door money should be 670 des. chrg. + 595 bank fee + tax + tag + 1st pmt. If it were in my area of NY (7% sales tax) total about $3000. I assumed the EX-L Res has a 49% resid Val like the Ex-L, but I'm not sure about that. It maybe lower.

Price paid: $29500. In Massachusetts
Looks like they have a little more wiggle room than the$1500 Cash to Dealer...or they wanted to boost their end of month numbers.

First of all, Thank you Golic, for your idea of buying portable DVD players for the kids rather than spending the $$ on RES - good idea!
Now - how come I am having SO much trouble finding the above 4WD with Nav in California? I'm looking for Sterling Gray.......and, in searching inventories on the Honda site and Edmunds it seems that there are only about 20 of those particular cars left in the whole USofA! Would a Honda Dealer in California be willing to get me a car from 700 to 2000 miles away? How would I even be able to negotiate a good price if the Dealer had to put in a long distance order?
Should I just wait for the 2010's to come in? I'm in no hurry - just surprised that AWD is (apparently) not easy to find closer to home. Seems to be a ton of Nimbus 2WD's here, though!

If you are in no hurry ... Cars are going to get cheaper, much cheaper. Auto prices will crash. Liquidation sales later this year after the 2010 models come out are going to be fabulous.
