Am I losing it? I have never seen a
Red Rock Pearl Ody in NJ. Never.
Plenty of MB, GG and Silver. But no RRP.
I have also noted that the forum posters
from NJ have no RRPs. What is going on?

Also- Anyone in NJ getting below MSRP?

I sat in one!! We were looking at an RRP EX-L at Joyce Honda in Denville during my aborted attempt at upgrading our 2000 DEP EX. The dealer claimed that the most he could spare on a trade-in was $21,500 so we decided to add aftermarket leather and live with the 2000 for now.

Hi, I'm not from NJ but am in Maryland, just a few hours away... I've only seen one on the road, the others have been at the dealer: 1 for service, 1 a gussied up EXL.

Mine comes in next week, and I'll be in NJ, I hope, after Christmas visiting my brother in Basking Ridge. So, there may be a sighting soon. I believe a bunch are coming in the current shipment, as we had two on order (both RRP) and they both shipped the same day.

I think we'll start seeing more very soon. It's VERY PRETTY!

I've seen only one <font color=red>Redrock</font> (RP) in Illinois other than ours, and that was at our dealer's.

Our dealer held off ordering any <font color=red>Redrock</font> Pearls for his stock until he had seen the RP for himself.

Regards,

Maugham

I have yet to see one on the road but my dealer had one on his lot (for someone else, of course). It was a RES but it has been the only RP I've seen on his lot in circa two months of observation. Most all of the ones I've seen have been MB or SS. Haven't seen an EP nor have I seen a NAV in any color.

I have had a RRP EX on order since September and have yet to see any here in Jersey. We spotted one while on vacation in Maryland in November. Started following the driver around as he searched for a parking space: probably thought we were stalking!

Same here. I ordered RRP EX in Sep. The dealer says that it will come this month, but who knows. BTW, I saw RRP in NJ once on Rt 9. But just once for these three months.

Bite your tongue!
Actually, the red DC vans do look pretty nice.
The RRP is still pretty rare-even here in So. Cal. I have only seen one other one in a WalMart parking lot! I do notice looks from drivers of the more "common" color Odys-not necessarily admiring, just curious most likely.

'02 RRP EX NAV
Mudguards,cargo tray,Weathertech mats, Bug deflector, lampguards, gold emblems,
17" TSW Spirit wheels with 235/55 Dunlop Sport A2 tires
More stuff on the way...
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

I guess they found the red paint out in the warehouse. I have 3 dealers in North Jersey expecting RRP EXs next week! 2 gave me real VIN #s to prove it. Just in time for Christmas.

I was offered one off the lot in the mid-Hudson Valley, New York about a month ago. I would have jumped except I didn't want (can't afford) the NAV system.

Our salesman told us that anyone that knows anything about Hondas will know that ours is a brand new 2002 since it's... Red Rock Pearl.

I felt so-o-o-o elite.

And yeah, albaby, bite your tongue. It's the same until you park nose to nose with one. Then it's different.

Picked up my RRP EX from Academy Old Bridge last night. It's for my wife, but she is gun shy about driving it in holiday traffic so I got to drive it to work today. I like it so much, I'm not sure if I will give it back to her.

Overall, the dealer experience was OK. I had to wait 3 months for delivery but they came through with 5.44% financing and a good deal on the extended warranty. Salesman put the big push on for all 5s on his rating. Even threw in a gold key ring - "Since you were so patient about waiting. Not everyone gets one you know!"
Only complaints are the gas tank sloshing when it is full and the speedometer: digital would be nice. It has the classic round analog style with not enough numbers on it.
It is a great driving machine with plenty of power and a smooth ride. Has the thickest manual I ever saw - 386 pages in all.
Look for me in the Central Jersey area.

Just for the record.. I ordered the cargo tray and mudguards from hondaparts4you.
I package came with on Honda gold color key ring. ( I think there is more than one type).
Not a big deal but a pleasant surprise. Did not get one of these from the dealer when I bought the van!!
