#542 of 567 2009 Kia vs. Odyssey vs. Sienna

Thanks for the info. With the relatively slim difference in price between an Odyssey EX-L and a Sedona EX with comparable options, sounds like the Honda would be the better long term value, right?
Is it true that shopping at the end of the year (from mid-Dec. on) is better in terms of less customers and better ability to get price breaks from salesmen needing to hit end of month and end of year quotas?
And even though I'm dealing online with the dealers' internet staff, when I've gone into the dealers they still pass me to a salesman. So what's the point of doing all the advance legwork (other then they know that we know what's going on) if I'm still gonna get treated as if I walked in off the street?
If I want to do a trade-in there to save time, should I wait until a firm price has been set for the new car? What if they balk at that point? I can't sign something first if it says no trade-in and then do a trade in, but can't they change their mind on price after I mention a trade?
When do I mention the holdback (I don't want it but I want them to know that I'm aware of it) and the current $1,250 factory rebate?
What's the deal with the KBB numbers they pull up to justify their trade in rate? Is that what dealers are suggesting to pay and not what dealers are actually paying?
As a follow up to my initial post, the dealer is now asking if I would buy the car for $500 back of invoice? I am unfamiliar with this expression. Is it the same as $500 below invoice or is it something else like after taxes?
And can I still negotiate on the $1,250 factory to dealer incentive after we have agreed on a price or does the price we agree on include all rebates, incentives, etc.?

A reporter is looking to see if you were looking to purchase a Toyota or Honda vehicle but after doing some comparison shopping, purchase a Hyundai or Kia because of price/value . Please send your daytime phone number to ctalatiedmunds.com by Friday, October 9, 2009.

If you keep your cars a long time then the kia has the warranty for you. 5/50 and 10/100. Unless you really like the honda better go kia. After 10 years there won't be much difference in value between the two anyway. There should be a big selling price difference as well.

We are in the same boat. I have been looking at the Odyssey EX-L but would really like to get memory seats and adjustable pedals option at a reasonable price. If anyone has recently purchased the EX model with the luxury package, I would appreciate some kind of feedback regarding pricing.

Just wanted to share with others. I had sent emails to few Kia dealers in the area and got quotes ranging from $27,400 to $27,900 for a 2010 EX with the Luxury and Entertainment package. Is it worth paying this for the Sedona knowing that these vans depreciate so much in the first year? Anyone else received any recent quotes for the 2010 Sedona?

Jul 01, 2010 (12:50 pm)
Hello there everyone, please take your time in reading this message. I would like to share my experience in my Kia Sedona L, to tell the truth ill first tell you the description its a Kia Sedona L Petrol 2.5 Midnight Black colour. Now we bought this car and its a beautiful very spacey great lovely car! And the spending is going good as well! But then this this came we are in need for so much cash and we need to now sell our lovely memoriable car, we always looked after it, very easy to drive mine is manual, very nice and easy beautiful car! So really I think a Kia Sedona might not be heard of but its an absoloute beauty. Better than a Honda I say, im kind of asking for £4,000 and the mileage is only 41,030. So if anyone is anyway intrested in my lovely Kia Sedona L?

The pricing for over 70,000 is normally over £2,500 and the pricing that are about £4,000 are about 48,000 and over.
