I don't want this come off that I am bragging, but I wanted to give an update to my price-paid for my 2020 Ridgeline Sport AWD. Just recently, I got a check back in the mail from the state I live in for $1,950. When I purchased my truck back in March, I was over-charged on sales tax. I bought my truck out-of-state. I tried multiple times to explain to the sales rep and the finance manager they were calculating the sales tax incorrectly. I was trying to explain how my state excludes trucks from the cap of $10,000 for credit on sales tax on trade-ins for vehicles. They would not listen to me and even stated the legal rep for the dealership (who coordinates in-state and out-of-states sales) was saying I was to be subject to the $10,000 credit-cap on my trade in. I still went ahead with the purchase because I drove nearly 3 hours to purchase the truck, it was the color I wanted, and it still was the one-of-the best negotiated prices. Now that I have been rebated my state, I feel vindicated. Here is my FINAL purchase price for my Ridgeline back in March of this year:

2020 AWD Sport - New (20 miles on odometer)

$32,160.00 Negotiated

Additional Fees: $300 non-negotiable Theft Prevention fee (attempted, but not able), $159 title fee, $25.00 license fee, $180.00 documentation fee, $2,206.30 sales tax (IL resident with 9.75% sales tax at time of sale)

Final Total Pricing: $35,030.30 DATE OF SALE;
$1,950 REBATE-CORRECTION = $33,080

Trade: $28,500

Remaining difference: $6,530.30 - paid with check DATE OF SALE;
$4,580 REBATE-CORRECTED PRICE DIFFERENCE

2021 Black Edition
Black
Katy, TX
$47000 - Final Price
Trade-in Involved = No

Price includes:
• Function+ Package $1315
• Window Tint
• Lojak 1yr
•Perma plate
•Nitrogen

Purchased on Labor Day. Only Black Edition in Houston area, dealer had it marked up with extras and a $3k market adjustment to a total price of $51k. Got in a bidding war with another customer. Offered $47k, other guy came in at $48k so we left to go look at another dealer 5 miles down the road (website said BE in stock, was actually in transit) so headed home. Got a text from my salesman that the other customer couldn't get finanacing, came back and did the deal.

Definitely not the best deal, but from what I'm hearing, Ridgelines will be in even shorter supply for the next year!

2021 BE - Carmax - $44,200: Wife found a newly posted 2021 BE in TN (I live in SC) with 10K mi on it. After tax/tags/title OTD was about $45,400. Nothing wrong with it at all. Guessing the loan payments were too steep. Bit the bullet and paid the $199 to transfer it to my dealer, and bought it. No regrets. I am in love. Don't tell my wife.

Just paid 1500 over MSRP for a 21 RTL-E.

selling my 19 rtl-e with 37k to carmax for 39k.

And my 19 needed new tires, all the fluid soon, and a brake flush so the 1500 came out to be a wash for me.

I just put a deposit down on a 2022 RTL-BE that hopefully will be built this year... Got it for MSRP with $1500 in "mandatory accessories" (PPO, Simoniz and wheel locks)... Did get $2K more for my F150 that I had bought a year ago so my "net" was $8.8K OTD

I wanted a RTL (which would have just been $4.3K OTD) but didn't want to wait the extra 6 weeks based on the expected build dates...
