#626 of 750 2007 EX 2WD AT - San Diego
Jun 20, 2007 (12:03 pm)
Asked for price quotes from about 6 dealerships in the area Thursday evening. Got quotes from 4 of them the following morning and exchanged some emails to get an idea of inventory and color choices (I also checked online at dealership websites). There were NO 4WD available in the San Diego county at this time, and color options were highly limited (mostly silver, grey, some blue, and one solitary orange). I considered waiting for the 2008 to see if there would be any new upgrades, but it sounds like they are releasing the exact same cars with some possible color changes. Didn't want to wait 'til September to get my car. Hence, Saturday morning, I went out and bought the one and only orange Element available. I asked the dealership to match the lowest quote I had received ($400 less than their quote), and they did. A couple hours after walking in (dang, paperwork takes a long time!), I drove out in my brand new Element!
Paid $20,738 (not including taxes, fees) for a...
Tangerine Metallic EX 2WD (automatic) with
mud guards (included by dealer)
wheel locks (included by dealer)
phantom guard (included by dealer)
roof rack (I added)
cargo cover (I added)
cargo net (I added)
This was a little over $2K off MSRP, and I'm guessing around $700-800 off invoice (invoice for model without any accessories is ~$20,800 for my zip code).
As far as the accessories, I had written down the prices from the honda website, and then asked the dealership how much they cost with installation. I thought their prices were reasonable. For example, a roof rack (according to honda.com) costs $299. They charged $318 including installation.
Dealership: Poway Honda
Brynda and Kathie were very pleasant...
I'm lovin' my car!

Made a deal last night for a 2007 Galaxy Grey Metallic AWD A/T. Bought it from Walser Honda in Burnsville MN. Price on the windshield was 21,455 plus TTL. Considering how much of an a-hole all the other dealerships around here are i thought it was a great deal. Most MN dealerships want atleast sticker on all Hondas. This is the third Walser vehical i have bought and every time it has been painless and the service has been incredible.

I purchased an EX AWD Automatic a few weeks ago. I'm not sure how good a deal I got. I ended up paying 20,700 including trading my 1991 Accord with 284K on it (which I know wasn't worth much). I did manage to get $200 in free accessories. I went with the 2.9 financing. I purchased form Boch in Norwood, MA. I had a mixed experience. I think they are too focused on selling tons of cars. They dropped the ball on a few things. When I came to pick up the vehicle, it wasn't ready, and I had to wait 3 1/2 hours.
