[YMMVish] 2019 Honda Pilot Clearance - $38,125 for 2019 Pilot Elite - DC metro
Wandered into the showroom floor while waiting on an oil change for my Accord, was offered an unsolicited deal for 22% off MSRP on a 2019 Pilot Elite, with fair trade on my Accord which they determined while I was waiting on the oil change.
Thinking it was BS, I called one of the local high volume Honda dealers nearby, the deals were even better.
For a 2019 Elite with about $450 of dealer add-ons (mud flaps, rubber mats, wheel locks)...
MSRP with destination - $49,065
"No hassle" price including dealer add-ons - $38,875
Honda Loyalty Bonus (for Accords and Odysseys, but dealership can apply for any honda owned in your household) - $750
Total before local tax tags and dealer fee - $38,125
If financing through Honda, it would've been $1,000 more.
Talked to the manager - he said all Honda dealerships nationwide were instructed to liquidate current Pilot inventories ASAP, and even for a year end deal, they hadn't seen anything like this before for a Pilot or for a year end model clearance.
I personally didn't bother shopping around, so might be able to do better locally where you are.
Current promotions end tomorrow, 7/8. However, given the size of the honda -> dealer discounts and the fact there's a lot of inventory out there with sales slowing on all cars, it wouldn't surprise me if there's something the same or slight better starting Tuesday.
The paranoid side of me thinks this feels an awful lot like early 2008 did, so this may end up being a terrible deal later this fall.
Not sure what the prices would be like in lower trims, but I'd imagine they're equally strong.
