I am not advertising by any means. If this comes off as that, please hang me by my toe nails and beat me with a wet laughing elmo doll.

I have read many different threads relating to deals and satisfaction with the Dealers and Pilots. People have left names and numbers to their saleperson they liked. Being a sales person myself and most importantly a Pilot owner, it would be a conflict of interest to promote myself. (although, I was a great salesperson to myself and gave me all fives!!!!! ;) )

That being said, currently I can offer some pretty good deals on a Pilot in stock. Please email, pm, or call me if your would like further information.

If this comes off as non-specific, great! I don't want to cross any lines.

I think I could buy a plane ticket and drive it back from Michigan for 2 g's, pilothead :), and still have room for a commission for you :). It is interesting to watch the market reach an equilibrium. Here I'm seeing $500 back for cars in stock, waiting for more...

Just the idea of beating a car salesman with a elmo doll is very appealing for some reason:4:

Below MSRP

Any Pilot bought below MSRP is a great event. Of course you have to be lucky enough to catch one on a lot for 1 - 1 1/2 weeks. Dealers will let them go for $500-$1000 below invoice to keep their allocation for the month intact. Allocation is important, but gross on a hot product is big also.

BTW, after the CR rating & crash rating, the market on available "On Lot" Pilots is going south.

Correction

I meant $500-$1000 below MSRP. I would stand a better chance to win the lottery than get a Pilot close to invoice, let alone below.

Odysseys are still at MSRP for incoming models with deposits, and $300 off models sitting for a week or so.

I guess its no suprise that no repsonse was given by the salesman originator of this thread to my question about price, as typical with most when the question is too hard or just not one they want to hear you dont get a response! obviuosly this means no and isnt it sad that this has become accepted as a response on the part of these car salesmen types. Its when you find one that acutally answers you straight that you know you have a good one, the thing is here is that he stuck it out first! and then didnt follow up! ....zero back bone...and the killer is that he is probably gaining sales from this! uggh i gueess i am done, c'mon Elmo we gotta plane to catch to Cinci and dont forget that bucket of water and dont ask me what its for!:2: Just say no.... you can do it! you will get more respect this way!

saw the color we want today

Pilothead, I think you have good taste...we've decided we want a sagebrush EX cloth :). Just saw one today in this color with cloth for the first time at one of the local dealers...has had it and two SS EX cloth Pilots on the lot since late last week; we're curious how long they'll last.

To give the dealer credit, there was none of the time-wasting back and forth haggling that can happen sometimes even when both parties know there's no deal...they're sticking to list, and I'm planning to hang out until February or so looking for $1000 back. Immovable object encounters irresistible force :). But it's nice to work with a straight-up salesperson like that.

Nice car though.

Pilothead, no disrespect to you or any other Pilot.org members, but please do not classify me because I did not reply to your post. As I specifically wrote in the originating post, all interested parties can email, pm, or call me. YOU did none.

For anyone interested, I recieved a few inquiries who I emailed back within a day.

I have only been in this business for a short time, so I realize I have a lifetime of negative opinions to overcome. I do my best.

I hear ya, MG. Original plan was to replace the 1990 Accord when it got to 200k sometime next year, so worst case I'm back to plan A and pay $500 back like a number of folks are offering now :).

Posting

Pilothead, are you referring to ME not answering your e-mail? I just posted the other day and apologize. The answer is $1000 over invoice is great. If you go under MSRP on a Pilot, you are doing great. We move what we have, and mostly pre-sell every Pilot we get. We serve about 2 million in a 100 mile radius, not a huge dealership, but big. We can't keep a Pilot on the lot, and even have to keep a Demo Pilot for 6 months for test drives only. If you got $1000 over invoice, there must have been Pilots sitting on that lot for almost a month and that dealer loses allocation for what is sitting and not sold come next order period.

Any further questions?

Price

The best I could do is $500 off MSRP if it has been sitting on the lot for 3-4 weeks, and beg my sales manager, and say you are my uncle. Sorry, we have no inventory. $1000 above invoice, not unless they make more, so no is the answer piloteers!!!!!

The price depends on demand v/s supply in your area. In Houston, almost all dealers quote 300 to 500 off MSRP with a deposit. If it is sitting on the lot, they may be willing to deal lower.
