Larry Hopkins in Sunnyvale is dishonest

I put a deposit down with a sales rep named Deon about 2 months ago. He had said that they would be pricing the Pilot for $1,000 over msrp. I thought that was reasonable considering the market. He has emailed back recently that the mark up for the dealership is charging is $4,500 over msrp, but since I put a deposit down, it will only be $2,500 over msrp. What a swell guy! I've decided not to do business with Hopkins. I will take my money to another dealership instead.

Hmmm, I have no complaints with Larry Hopkins Honda

I think you just got a rotten apple of salesperson from Larry Hopkins Honda in Sunnyvale, CA. I just picked up Midnight Blue EXL with Navi from Thomas Ho, Fleet Manager, from Larry Hopkins Honda on 3/12/04. Matter of fact, this is my second Honda in less than two years from him.

We negotiated on the price over the phone, confirmed via email. Faxed my driver license, insurance, my loan pre-approval letter before heading in. I was in and out of dealer in 30 minutes.

Tell him that sungchang sent you :)

As for pricing, it was the best in the Bay area. Les from Anderson Honda in Palo Alto, and forgot the name of sales person from Capitol Honda could not compete. Told me to buy from Larry Hopkins Honda and I did :p
Agreed, and we need to start up this portion of forum again :D

Now that I have the Pilot, a get together would be nice.

Hi sungchang,

I am also shopping for a 2004 Pilot. Would you mind disclosing how much you paid at Larry Hopkins for your EX-L w/ Navi ?
For the EX-L Navi, Les from Anderson quoted $32860 and CarsDirect quoted $32458. For the EX-L, Les from Anderson quoted $30860 and CarsDirect quoted $30660.
I am leaning toward the EX-L but the Navi seems tempting.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

First, I would highly recommend the Navi. Although an expensive option at $2000, I think it's well worth it. As for pricing, I promised Thomas that I would not divulge the final pricing that I paid as they had made a mistake on it; however, call him on his cell, 415-519-0638, and tell him that I referred you. His pricing should be below $32k.

Once you get a quote, email me at [email protected] and I will let you know how it compares.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but a promise is a promise and I intend to keep it :)
