Last year I traded my 2009 EXL-4WD-with RES for $22,500. It had 25,000 miles on it. But, then it also had $7000 of Hail Damage (assessment per my Insurance company) and so essentially I was able to get $29,500 for a car that I used for 2 yrs and paid $32,000 two years earlier.
The new car I got was a 2012 Touring 2WD for $36,200 + Tax, Title, Registration.
Ended up costing me 9000$ out of pocket.

Hi there. Wife and I are in market for 2013 Pilot and trying to figure out what would be a good price for EXL 4WD (no Nav no Res), and Touring 4WD in NYC.
I've tried internet quote at numerous dealership but non of them are willing to commit to an internet quote. All of them asked to be in their showroom in order to provide "best pricing".
So before I actually do visit them over the weekend, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

You said you are looking for either a Pilot EX-L (no NAV, no res) or a Touring which has both NAV & RES. this weekend is most definitely one if THE weekends to buy a car. I bought my Pilot (2011 EXL w/ NAV) 2 years ago. At the time, Honda offered 2.9% financing (up from 1.9% the month before in the wake of the tsunami). I didn't wait until Memorial Day weekend. Honda dropped the rate from 2.9% to 0.9%. I could have either saved a lot of money paying for my EXL w/ NAV or afforded a Touring (with power lift gate at the time) for what I paid for my truck.
Anyway, 2 years later we are really happy with our Pilot and plan on keeping it did many years to come.

Try Truecar.com. You will get 3 quotes which usually seem to be in the same range. If you go to the dealership without knowing what a good price is, you will lose for sure.
I went with Huntington Honda on Long Island. They are honest and reliable. However, YOU need to know what a good deal is before you go in.
.9% Honda Financing right now which is pretty close to 0

Thank you both for the helpful tips.
I just hope the dealer won't think I am too crazy with starting pricing of 31K for EXL and 35K for the touring.
Regardless of agreed pricing at the dealership this weekend, I will post my outcomes and hope it will benefit next buyers.
One quick question.... the 2014 model should be out in few months, how much more can I talk down the price??? 500-1000? Thanks!

I got quote for the following in NY:
EXL AWD (no NAV no RES) for $31,500
Touring AWD for $35,500.
Wife and I decided on Touring and went to dealer yesterday and put down deposit.
$35,500 includes destination and any dealer fees + TTL
Long story short, other dealers said this price was impossible and refused to match or beat it.
