#708 of 839 2009 Prices and Colors
Aug 13, 2008 (4:40 pm)
I heard today the new exterior colors will be Sterling Gray, Bali Blue and Mocha Matallic. Officially, the new colors, trucks and pamphlets will be available on 9/3 per Honda. I hope my source was correct on the colors.
With the information posted on the various discounts for the 2008 model, I am trying to make a decision on whether to hold out for a 2009, prices unknown.
Any general thoughts on what Honda dealerships will do price wise once the 2009 MSRP numbers become available? Does Honda typically offer any incentives (rebates, financing, cash to dealers, etc.) at the start of a model year? I checked the local inventory of 2008 models and there are 104 within 30 miles of my zip code in AZ. My sense of reading the postings in this Forum is the Ridgeline is not moving very well in most parts of the country. That being said, how will that effect the pricing for the 2009 model? Thanks for any feedback.

I don't expect any of these automobile manufactures to be in any better shape next year, since they are expecting oil to increase back up to the $150 mark by winter.
With that said, I expect discounts to be available on all type of SUV/trucks.
Why take and year-end 2008 that has depreciated, when a 2009 offers improvements along with a discount by the holidays. The financing rates may be better for a 2008, that what will be offered for the 2009.
Just my two cents.

you won't see big incentives on the '09's until the '08's are significantly thinned out.
I'm guessing the '08's will be heavily discounted in the fall when you would typically see few remaining.
MSRP for the Ridgeline didn't last much past the initial release of the vehicle. I think Honda misjudged what the masses would be willing to pay for this truck - and that was before the sudden rise in fuel prices.
#712 of 839 RTL+Navi = 9366 below MSRP

This is the best I got so far :
Offered price for an RTL with navi :26394+TTL. (MSRP:35760) -$9366 Below MSRP
Offered price for an RTX is 20650+TTL (MSRP 29170) - 8520 below MSRP
The price above include all fees (Doc fee, Dealer fees etc). Only extras are Tag, Tax and title
Is this a good deal?

The RTL w/Nav is a great deal, but I'm holding for the 2009.
