Welcome to the Forum!I'm thinking maybe if I waited longer I could have received a better deal too, but my OTD price was $35,900 for the following:
I'm in North Carolina -- Two dealerships were very close in pricing, I just went with the one closer to home. For me they would not budge on the warranty price. I wanted the extended warranty for piece of mind with all the new electronics. Now I wonder if delaying our purchase could have produced a better deal...

- Black Running Boards

- Black crossbars
Absolutely rightEvery state has it's own tax rate, dealer doc fee rate, license and title fees, etc so it's not a matter of being lazy to do a little math. In Ohio the doc fee it is capped at $250.00 In New York it was $80.00. In Florida there is no state regulation and some dealers have charged as much as $1000.00 for a "dealer doc fee" The state tax in Ohio varies depending on what county the car is registered in. My county collects a total of 7% car sales tax, the county next to me collects 8% sales tax.
State license and title fees are also vastly different. I pay $60.00 a year for a license plate, and I believe around $20.00 or so for a title.
Not everyone knows what each state charges or what each dealer charges.
It makes it much easier to understand the purchase price of just the vehicle when the price paid for the vehicle plus the destination fee is included in a post.
No one is being lazy at all!
Oh, and welcome to the forum!
Sounds like they are starting to give them away! Your post and the one previously regarding the Touring AWD someone just purchased show some very fantastic sale prices!!!!Honda Pilot Black Edition
Actual Price Paid $41,992
Accessories added, but at no charge: wheel locks
North Carolina NC Tax: $1272.93
Title, tag: $89
Doc fees: $439
North Carolina dealer's quote for that somehow came below an Elite, so now I'm driving a black car.
Sorry if the above is confusing. I paid $35,256.25 total but price of Pilot shows purchase price before taxes, fees and extended warranty of $36,075.30. (had trade in $7,500)2020 Touring FWD 7 Passenger
Actual Price Paid: $36,075.30
Included in above price - appearance enhancement package: c/tray, wheel locks, splash guards,door guard protection molding, wheel well protection molding : (shown additional on car sticker $1,390.00)
folding cargo mat (no cost)
Sales Tax (6%): $ 1,961.90
Title, tag and other fees $ 1,839.05
Honda Care 8 year/120,000 extended warranty $2,880.00 Per Florida law cannot discount and must buy in state from dealer.
Traded in a vehicle and felt I received a very fair offer (was same price shown on Edmunds site I had looked up prior to going).
South Motors Honda in Miami, Fl was great to deal with! Did use USAA buying service (Truecar) to begin the negotiations. When offered the price of car I told them if the Honda Care was included in the price we had a deal and they agreed.
