    Is it too good to be true??

    I will be going to look at this next week (as long as it doesn't sell prior *fingers crossed*) I have wanted an 8 seater, under $20,000 and they have been hard to come by in this area without being older and high on mileage.

    Any opinions? Things I should watch out for/ask?

    The link doesn't show it now that it's mine! 2010 Ody EX-L with 60,000 miles. Got them down to $18,495 on price!

    The KBB on those is $17-21k, so that sounds right. It's nice!

    Re: Is it too good to be true??

    I just bought an '08 EX-L (same body style as that one) and it's AMAZING I love it so much.

    I was gonna say though, I had to drive two hours away to get mine, and when I talked to the internet sales manager he said I could put down a $500 deposit over the phone and then he would write up a bill of sale so no one else could buy it. Then if I changed my mind they would refund me. This was at an Acura dealership btw so I wasn't worried about any shady dealings going on. Anyways, we went down and picked it up today, and it was really in perfect condition so I'm glad I jumped on it quickly. He said there had been several other people interested in it so they had a waiting list LOL!

    I'm not surprised there was a waiting list. The hard part is usually finding one still available. They go quick.

    OP, I hope you have geography on your side and the Ody market in the middle of Maine isn't as hot

    Yeah I literally called them like 15 minutes after they listed it LOL. I actually think the market is even hotter where I am in Madison, because the used ones around here are priced much higher and still there are hardly any available. I'm just lucky that Chicago is a fairly reasonable drive away.

    Good luck OP, I hope you get it!

    Now I'm getting anxious it will sell before I make it up there! EEK! It's about 45 minutes away. I can't get there until Wednesday on my day off. I've been exchanging emails with the internet sales person and he is keeping me posted on it.

    Congrats! I think I've kind of decided that if I won the lottery/increased my income, I'd buy that generation of Ody.
