My wife and I were at the Honda dealer yesterday looking at the Odysseys they had. Turns out an elderly couple were there trading in one for a new Rav4 right then. I spoke to them as they came out and they had nothing but praise for their Odyssey.

I didn't get the chance to ask them how much they got for the trade-in! Haha.

It's a 2008 EX-L with camera but no dvd or nav. 46,000 miles. When I asked the dealer about the price he said "around $25k". I did drive it and it's very solid, no issues.

So what should I offer for it? Was thinking $23,500 or ???

We just traded our 99 Odyssey LX with 185000 miles for an 08 EX-L (certified) with 32000 miles. Paid $21500 for the new one and got $1700 in trade for the old one.

If you can get it for 23, great, but any more than that and wouldn't you be better off considering a new one with a full warranty and no miles? We shopped for a used Ody, but the prices just weren't low enough compared to the negotiated price (not sticker) of the 2011. If you can settle for an EX, I believe you can get a 2011 for under $30k. So, with that in mind, I would need to save many thousands of dollars (not just $5,000) on a van that is three years old and almost half way to 100k miles. Just something to consider.

In my area, low-mileage, used Odysseys are in high demand so these vans don't sit on dealer's lot too long.

The local Honda dealer is asking $24500 for a 2008 EX-L (no RES, no NAV), Certified, 49K miles, one owner. The Certified is probably worth $500.

If the car you're considering is not certified, you could put an offer at $23K to start negotiation. Don't go higher than $23500.
