Well, I made the deal yesterday and I feel pretty good. Hopefully I didn't miss anything. Recall, the full specs are: 2007 Honda Element EX AWD 5AT. After visiting the UBS dealer I received an offer of:
$595 Destination & Handling
$149 Mud Guards (on all the cars)
$99 Wheel Locks (on all the cars)
Total: $21,740 plus tax and tags.
Then I went to the next dealer on my list from internet quotes. These are the people who said "come in" and we can talk about the $19,000 price I was going for. Well, honestly that was crazy on my part for a car that is $21,971 invoice. Ultimately, I got them down to:
$20,900 Base with only 4 miles on the vehicle
$100 Dealer Processing
$0 Mud Guards
$0 Wheel Locks
Total: $21,000 plus tax and tags. So, I bought the Element for $971 under invoice and $740 below UBS. I was ready to walk if I didn't get the $21K because I really didn't need the car immediately plus there is still the end of the month/year to try for a better deal.
I do want to mention that Honda of Bowie, in MD, was super easy to deal with and the paperwork was a breeze.
Now, it's time to PLAY!
PS. I got it in Red.

LOTS of GOOD Deals! I just paid $18,990 for 2007 LX 4WD Auto which included the $595 destination charge but does not include tax, plates & doc fee or trade in. Bought through the internet, and one dealer offered $200 below the competition. I highly highly recommend my salesman for a fair, honest no pressure, great experience. Chicago area.

Just bought an '07 SC tonight for 21,813 plus tax/license.. Being in the San Diego area, I feel pretty good about the price. And those wheels are awesome! First time Honda owner, I'm sick of my american cars not holding their value.

Cost per mile to drive.....9.0589 cents\mile
Would have been nice if you included what roads you were driving,highway, mixed, city

I just got done buying my new Element. I ended up purchasing from Honda of Bellevue but only because they were offering me an additional powertrain warranty. I had to walk out and was on my way to purchase from Honda of Seattle. Bellevue called me back and decided to match the offer from Seattle (plus I got a few extras):
I paid $22,171 + tax and license. The price included destination, wheel locks, mud flaps and door guards plus the extended powertrain warranty.
So, if you don't want to go through the hassle, I would definitely buy from Honda of Seattle. I called them and asked what their best price was as I was going to buy today. They offered me a great deal $22,371 + tax, license and the 3 extras without the misery of playing games.

I have recieved an OTD price of $19,062 from dealer in Baltimore via the internet (base = $17,871.) I haven't yet stepped into the dealer, so don't know what I'm in for! ) This is the best prices I've recieved after sending out emails for quotes.
This is for a 2007, 2WD, LX, manual. From reading the above posts, it sound pretty good....but, should I be able to do better?
Thanks for any input!

i beleive you got a good deal i just bought a 2007 LX Automatic, get this its used, has only 2500 miles on it, carfax turns out clean has only 1 owner in history.Non existing crash or burn or been flooding or anything. Made a good deal with the sales manager for $17500 for a used one that is a rare situation for an "07 element.The price they wanted us to pay was $19900 got them down to that price.Because we told them we can get that brand new we did our research.My wife and i was very happy, the dealership experiance there was exellent non-pressure and non of that sales tactic of "So how much monthly payment you would like to be into?" crap.They told us the price and we negiotiated and that was that.
