I am with djs and jfrano. I'm a wheeler and a dealer. If I hadn't loved this damn thing so much, I would never had paid MSRP. I almost talked myself out of it, convincing myself that I would be able to do better when the hype died down, but the cool factor won out in this one.jfrano said:Same feeling here. I like to work deals, so when I have to pay MSRP,that's bad enough!
Hey DJS, the last SUV like vehicle I had was a '96 Subaru Outback.
I racked up 70,000 in three years, so I sold it. My boat has been sitting in the driveway since, as I figured out which SUV I wanted. So this has been a 2 year project for me. Going from and not in any order, the MDX, the Highlander, the Tribute, the Forester. To the best of them all the PILOT!! Whew I came two days away from being locked into a contract on a Highlander in February when I read about the Pilot. Pulled the plug and signed for the PILOT. I would have been soooo disappointed had I been locked into the Highlander, knowing that I really would have wanted the PILOT.
Thank god it's not. Once they figure out how to do Honda reliability, maybe they'll have buyings willing to pay MSRP or more. Until then, you can continue to get them below MSRP and pretend you got good value.chinalfr said:... not a BMW, Mercedes, any luxury car....
Wonder how the dents got there. Did they say?jonso7 said:I offered $500 under MSRP for a Sandstone EX-L. After a few trips to the back room the salesperson said they have already lowered their price by $3,000 to make the deal, why can't I budge on the $500. This particular Pilot has 2 small dents in the hood that were going to be fixed. I would have paid MSRP without dents. Still looking.
