You're looking for a specific model in a specific color below MSRP in 10 days?

Try Santa and hope you've been good this year.

(Then try Priceline and be very flexible as to which counties you'll travel to.)

I received this email Wednesday, 12/12. Its worth a shot checking them out. The guy I dealt with on the phone and through email last Feb. 01 when I was looking for my Ody was pleasant to deal with.


"Good News! we currently have several Honda Odysseys in stock and available.

Please let me know if you are interested in pursuing further information on one of these vehicles.

My toll free number is: 1 (888) 252-7742.

P.S. I did not get my Ody from them since at that time there was a two month wait.

Just call every dealer in your state and tell them what you want. I found lots of available or soon to be available 2002 Odyssey's this way. Goodluck.

After calling sveral places I found a dealer 10 minutes from where I leave. Here's the deal
2002 SS EXL-RES $33,268.40 (taxes and dealer fees included) will get it in 8 days.

Is that a good deal?

You'd need to break it out, compare it to MSRP. If it were I, I'd want to know what a "dealer fee" was. You can check MSRP for the car and the add-ons at the <a href="http://www.honda2001.com/models/odyssey/customize.html">Honda website</a>. I think an EXL-RES is US$30,190.

This guy (Sales Person) had told me that the Van was in high demand and said that someone had just cancelled their order on it. He told me that they were going for about $32,190.00 before taxes and fees. I got him to go down to $31.190.00

So basically I'm getting the van as a last minute request. Is this a good or bad deal?

So that sounds like $1,000 over MSRP. It is up to you if it is a good deal.

People report getting vans for between $500 under MSRP and $1-2,000 over. If you do a search on the term "MSRP" in the "subject only" you'll see several discussions.

I waited about 2 months and paid MSRP.

Maugham,
"You can check MSRP for the car and the add-ons at the Honda website. I think an EXL-RES is US$30,190."

Well, I guess you were right. I just called another dealer and they told me that they can get me the same car for MSRP $30,190.00
by "next week" too. I will saving $1,068.00 bucks. I also put a deposit over the phone on this one.

Thanks a Million : )

Will

Has anyone had any success with priceline and the Odyssey with a good chunk under MSRP?

A friend got his ODY from priceline within 10 days. The potential upside of priceline is jumping the waitlist - not getting a bargain. He put in his bid @ MSRP every day until his ship came in. It took about a week before a priceline-dealer got the offer right at the time that someone walked away from his van.

You could always try for below MSRP - just know that the odds are against you.

I know they're low, but I think I'll try. The only hesitation I have is dis'ing the current rep I have an order with at MSRP. She was realy nice, no pressure, but honestly the product sold me, not her.

Maybe I'll have a friend try.

99% certain the bid is anonymous but binding if accepted. Read their FAQ or call their help line. You need not bleed for the rep - she will be able to sell the van.
