I don't know much on the Touring as I focused my research on the EXL. But here is some information on pricing. https://carwoo.com/new-car-prices/2013-honda-pilot/baltimore-md
As far as the official Honda Care extended warranty, the cheapest I found was at http://hyannishondacare.com/. You don't need to get Honda Care from the dealer that you are purchasing the SUV. However, my dealer matched Hyannis's pricing as soon as I provided them the Hyannis quote.
You mentioned oil changes and car washes so it may not be the official Honda Care package.

The link you gave helps for pricing and the link to Honda care EW helps they wanted 2350 for 6yr /120k your link is half that.
The 495 was not a Honda care warranty. Its free oil changes, car wash and the extended warrany is only for power train. I think 50 dollars for a oil change over 5 years would pay for the 495.

Good luck uzu!
It might not need to be said but unless they are including it free, don't buy the accessories from Honda. Floor mats, cargo liners can be easily purchase for 1/2 the price at online stores (Amazon).
I just purchased the HexoMat floor mats. I liked that it can hold a lot of liquid (rain, mud, soda) so it doesn't get on the carpet.

Hi all. newbie here and want to know if im getting a good deal. Looking at a AWD EXL with Navigation and have few questions:
-As i understand it through edmunds dealer incentive, the Pilot is offering $800 cash cash and $700 bonus cash if financing through honda. The dealer told me only the $800 is available and $500 in bonus. Is this accurate?
-if i am trading in a lease with 1 month of payment left, how much can i negotiate in terms of discount if they offer to pay my remaining lease? Can i ask them to knock down another 1 - 1.5K. my monthly payment is 600 on current lease.
-was quoted 34.4K for this car (including 800 dealer cash and 500 bonus cash). What do you guys think? MSRP 39,450
">Thanks in advance.

Since the financing incentive is for the dealer, it is up to the dealer to give you what they want. Depends on how you negotiate. In addition to the incentives, dealers also get 2% holdback which they can dip into to give to you.
According to carwoo and truecar, you in a good range. Consumer reports says the "rock bottom" price for that model is $34,558 but that doesn't include the financing incentive. With that incentive you can get to $33,858. Given that they are going to pay for 1 month of your current lease ($600), I don't think you will get much more (and expect to a have an easy transaction). That's 1,300 below "rock bottom".
It's a balance....if you push too hard, you might be "forcing" them to lie to you and make up the money some other way ("bank fee", switching cars when you pick up). There are some horrific post in this forum.
Personally, I was able to go $1,200 below the "rock bottom" price and have an easy transaction (I already have my car).

good luck...to be honest I still don't understand how they can afford to sell below their true dealer's cost ("rock bottom"). They must get another type of incentive that the public doesn't know about...I guess they need to make money as well.

Waiting to speak with real person tomorrow but they are advertising $36,642 + tax & tags. Sound like a good price?

I'm looking at buying the same vehicle and they are quoting $38,400 here in Phoenix. I'm thinking $34-35,000 + tax and tags is probably about the right price. Any feedback would be great.
