I agree that I'll never know the true cost to dealer, and I'm completely okay with that - they don't know what I make either, nor what I'll pay. I don't need to beat them out of every dollar they get from Honda, but I dont want to overpay and hurt myself at resale.
The 2 Dayton dealers have been very precise in their correspondence, which I've made them reduce to writing. No reduction based on financing, nor by qualifying for military discount...no coupon that expires in 72 hours. While these are not legally binding, both would have a hard time walking them back. I'm what Grant Cardone would call a "grinder," and grinders are buyers. What I suspect is that they think they will upsell some accessory or inflated financing (wife and I are each 800+).
The Cincy dealer has been fairly passive, waiting for me to call, and we're good with that. We've bought from them before.
We have to wait until next week due to schedule (kids, both of us working). Plus I wanted to go in closer to end of month and end of quarter, for whatever that's worth.
The thing I thought I might be missing is some kind of radical mid-model year redesign, or the VCM shudder problem was more pervasive than I thought.
I hope to have this done next week so I'll post final numbers.

I overlooked a second Cincy-area dealer that quoted me $34,106 Thursday. I ignored them and they dropped the price to $32,450 Friday.
So, the best I have is 2 quotes of $32,450 - and one of them includes running boards and door edge installed.
Also, these emails are very precise in what is included in this price, and this latest one is the second one that advised me to bring the email with me.
#15357 of 15566 2013 EX-L 2WD in Austin, TX
Mar 29, 2013 (1:15 pm)
Picked up a 2013 EX-L 2WD in Austin this past week.
$32,420 price going to $33,454 including TTL (fairly substantial trade brought sales tax down)
I discovered that there are vastly different prices for accessories out there! The "no haggle" dealership in the Austin area is charging way more than the other ones. $1095 for lighted running boards (installed) while the low-cost one is charging $924. $155 for a cargo tray vs. $114!
#15358 of 15566 Ex-l AWD Boston area bought over weekend
Apr 01, 2013 (7:08 am)
Bought ex-l AWD near Boston. Price $32,175 including destination($830). On top of that I paid extra for doc($348) + TTL. Emailed numerous dealers one came back significantly lower. Overall pretty happy with the deal.
Apr 01, 2013 (10:06 am)
Paid $31,540 for 2013 EX-L 4WD.
I had 6 other quotes ranging from $31,650 to $32,800.
Doc fees in OH are capped at $250, so every dealer adds that $200 free profit item. I financed through dealer at .9%, so they get whatever comes to them from finance company.
Finally, I traded my ridiculously clean Highlander (after we agreed to price on Pilot) for more than would have taken, and since dealer has Toyota lot in the family, they'll make retail instead of wholesale on that, too.
Good day for all involved.

Thank you for posting the information about your purchase. Could you please let me know the name of the dealer?
More information (like a detailed breakdown) of your purchase would be extremely helpful. I'm in the market for a 2013 EX-L AWD Pilot and think this is a great deal... Congratulations...

What dealer did you purchase from?

I ended up buying at Joe Morgan Honda (Voss). Hidy was lowest by about $150, but didnt have color combo. I told this to JM and they said they wanted to beat my lowest quote by $100.
I wanted to buy from Castrucci but they were all over the place with pricing, and when they finally gave me their best price, which was over $900 more than JM, salesman told me I'd never buy the Pilot for that price.
#15364 of 15566 Any thoughts – 2013 Honda Pilot Touring Lease
Apr 08, 2013 (9:51 am)
Car Man Help !!!
I’m looking to lease a 2013 Pilot Touring 4wd, 3 years, 12K per year no money down everything in the payment, Long Island, NY zip is 11747. I negotiated most of the day this past Saturday going between 3 Honda dealerships on Long Island. Best price I got was $517 per month and they included the premium running boards. Is this a fair price?? How much cheaper could it really be? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks..
