On most vehicles, zero is a reasonable doc fee. Unfortunately, on high demand vehicles like Odyssey, "reasonable" is whatever people are willing to pay. A lot depends on where you live. We got ours at MSRP with no other fees and they threw in the cargo tray and splash guards and didn't require any other add-ons. Granted, I had to travel 70 miles, since all the local dealers were pushing appearance packages and selling cars out from those on the 3 month wait lists to people willing to pay $1500 more for scotchguard and paint sealer. In some areas people report $500-$1000 under MSRP, and a few areas are well above MSRP.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by slocko:

Well, I have just a bit of egg on my face. Just called my dealer to make sure I would not be charged a 'doc fee' and was informed that I would be paying $45 for just such an animal. Turns out it is a DMV fee (not something written to the dealer, but straight to the DMV here in CA). I called the DMV to confirm, and sure enough it is true. I STILL say that the dealer could pick that up out of his profit on this vehicle, but at least it is not added profit to him.
