#12703 of 15567 Nephew paid $27,000.00 including TT&L for a load 2008
Apr 08, 2009 (9:42 am)
Last August, my nephew and his wife paid $27,000.00 including tt&l for a loaded 2008 Honda Pilot. Not sure what model it is, but it's 2wd, leather, sunroof, dvd player, etc. He was looking at a Hyundai Santa Fe at the time, and his wife had spoken with a saleperson at the Hyundai dealership on a specific model. When the Hyundai salesman pulled the Sante Fe around for them to look at, it wasn't the model they had previously discussed. He and his wife drove across the street with his check from the bank........he told them $27,000.00.......no more, no less. They walked out that evening with their new Honda.

Thanks for your message. I am looking for this particular color, and dealers are saying it is a hard car to find. Nonetheless, I want to run by the board, whether the following deal is a good one? A dealer is offering me a Honda Pilot Touring (Nimbus Gray Metallic) with tint, wheel locks, cargo tray, splash guards, nitrogen in the tires, for 32,400 + TTL. Is this good? Or should I get the price to 32?

This is good information. Thanks for your message. So tell me what Freeman honda agreed to exactly if you don't mind. These guys told me that they have located a vehicle in Texas (it may have up to 200 miles on it by the time it is transported to their dealership). Nonetheless, I am curious to know what your price was, and if it included the cargo tray, wheel locks, tint, splash guards, and nitrogen in the tires. I got the same quote from Bankston, but now they are telling me they can't procure the vehicle. Nonetheless, Freeman Honda says they have located one, and the price I told them was 31,800 + TTL (all those accessories included). Thanks for your help!
#12707 of 15567 09 EX 4WD - Colorado or South Dakota??
Apr 10, 2009 (8:55 am)
Just joined and have been overwhelmed w/all the info... great forum! I was considering the Toyota Highlander (2008), but swung over to a Honda dealership (Denver) and test drove both the old body style and the new one... fell in love w/the 09 EX 4WD Pilot (keeping that in check though and would prefer the EX-L). Sticker was $32 and change and the dealer offered $30 and change w/o me even asking so I'm assuming there's more room for negotiating as I'm willing to walk away.
I've looked on Ebay and have sent a few emails to dealerships out of state and have gotten the e-brochures, etc, etc... but no pricing like I requested - so I'll skip that path. I'm willing to wait til the '10's come out and get better pricing on the '09... I'm w/the guy who'd like to get one for $28. I just want to get the most bang for my buck (doesn't everybody).
Questions I have are... where can I find the "invoice" price that I hear/read so much about? Is there a website... do you have to pay?? Are they specific to the city of the dealer? I'd prefer to buy from my local dealer (south dakota) but he's the only "honda" dealer in town. Would I be better off shopping in a metropolitan area like Denver? Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Ok, call me a goomba... but that takes you to the MSRP.. isn't the "invoice" (what the dealer paid) different from that?? Thanks again for all your help...

#12712 of 15567 Pilot LX or EX, Chicago area
Apr 10, 2009 (12:22 pm)
I'm looking for an LX but the dealer does not have one and said they are hard to come by, so I may consider an EX. I did get an internet price of $2000 under invoice on the 4WD EX (and $500 under invoice on an 4WD LX) but based on what I've read here I am wondering if I should continue to look for better pricing on both models? Is the EX really worth $2,500 more?
