When you guys talk about getting a deal like MSRP - $750, do you mean that literally or do you really mean MSRP + Destination Charge - $750? In other words "Total Vehicle Price" - $750.

Here's an example of what I mean:

Technically, the MSRP on a 2002 EXL-RES is $29,750 if you look at Honda's website. Honda does not include the $440 destination charge in the van's official MSRP. However, with the $440 destination charge, the price is $30,190. Honda refers to this as "total vehicle price."

I suspect that most dealers and buyers would consider the $30,190 price to be "MSRP," even though that price is actually the "total vehicle price" (or MSRP plus destination charge) according to Honda.

When I say I ordered my Odyssey for "MSRP minus $500," I mean that I ordered it for $500 less than the "total vehicle price," not for $500 less than the real "MSRP." I suspect most others also mistakenly use the phrase "MSRP" when they really mean "toal vehicle price" in Honda-speak when referring to what they paid for their Odysseys.

Just my opinion. I'd be curious to see what anyone else thinks.
