#15194 of 15564 2012 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD Automatic
May 20, 2012 (8:09 am)
Hello, Edmunds Readers:
I just purchased a new Alabaster Silver Metallic with Gray interior 2012 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD Automatic from Open Road Honda in Edison, NJ for $36,000 including destination charge. I also paid a $100 fee, the registration fee and taxes. From start to finish, the transaction (including a test drive, financing and purchasing the vehicle) lasted 2-3 hours. Professionalism, courtesy and respect was the order of the day. I was able to obtain 1.9% interest financing offered by Honda Financial Services for 60 months. An application is available online.

Has anyone bought from Honda Cars of Mckinney in May? They seem to be running some deals with 0% APR for 60 months on Pilot's. They are listing Pilot EXL for $31064, seems like a good deal. Anyone get a good deal with the special 0% APR?

I don't think that is legit. I have seen 0.9 and 1.9, the 0% is a dealer buy down which will cost you money in the end. I would stick to 0.9% if it's an option. Seems like you have been offered a good deal. I looked at the 2012 Pilot Touring models, all list around 40-41k MSRP around the metroplex but they come down immediately to around 36k (internet pricing as they say). From there it's more of a haggle over add-ons.
have anyone had much luck on haggling over the few add-ons which you may add to a Touring (more external visors, etc). I got down to 35.5 including dest/del charge + TTL, before add-ons or even the idea of trade-in.
I checked at Rusty Wallis, McNatt ..
#15197 of 15564 Bought 2012 Touring (RES/NAVI) 2WD
Jun 02, 2012 (2:04 pm)
Got mine for $35,800, no accessories. I hope that was good since Truecar.com says Dealer cost is $35,921, but I am losing trust in that website since Truecar was bought-out. As well, if there is a 2% hold-back then I think this was a fair price for Southern Cali. (I should have thought of the holdback during negotiations, oh well.)
(truecar.com : Up until a week ago it showed the hi-lo range of prices, now just the average; and a year ago it showed the trend line so you could see if it was rising or falling over previous months.)
Anyway, I got email/website quotes through various sources and then contacted other appealing dealers (dealerrater.com/google ratings/yelp) to see if they could beat my lowest quote. Then at the dealership, a little more negotiation (at the end of the month).

#15202 of 15564 2012 Pilot LX 2WD
Jun 05, 2012 (3:54 pm)
Hi, I received a quote from local dealer for 2012 LX 2WD with no extras (except for all season floor mat and cargo tray) for $27100 OTD (including tax, document fee, destination fee, etc). Is that a good price? Thank you.
#15203 of 15564 '12 Pilot Touring Dealer Offer
Jun 05, 2012 (5:52 pm)
Today, I contacted a local dealer about a 2012 4WD touring. I was quoted the price below. Please tell me what your thoughts are.
SUV - $38,100 (includes dest.)
Running Boards - $750.00
Total Vehicle price of $38,850 + Tax, Title & Registration
Any thoughts out there on the price? I was told the dealer doesn't cut into holdback during negotiations and that they were giving me their $500.00 factory incentive. Please keep in mind to that this dealer includes a 7yr, 100,000k mile limited warranty with all of their new vehicle purchases.
What do you think?
