@pannma Congrats on purchasing the PacHy !!!
I'm still on the fence regarding what to buy, I finally got the Costco Auto price for a 2019 PacHy Limited with the AST and it is $46,535 + TAX $3,606 + fees $825 for a grand total of $50,966 OTD, the dealer is in Tustin, CA and it arems that they are the only Costco approved Chrysler dealer in a 100 mile radius.
Now rounding the OTD price to $51K ( which i feel a little steep) , I have to substract the $7,500 Fed Tax Credit and a $1,500 California rebate, making it a $42K PacHy, and I would be counting on getting the 0% APR, which would leave the monthly payment at $850.
Now my other alternative is to get a much cheaper 2019 Honda Odyssey EX-L for an OTD price of $40,327 ( 60mo @ 2.99%), this also under the Costco Auto pricing which is a really good price imo.
This is where I'm stuck, since I want the hybrid's efficiency and fuel economy, but at the same time I need the middle seat on the second row and a more affordable price. I guess I'm just looking for other points of view on this dilemma I'm in.
If what you said is true, and you "need" the middle seat in the second row, then your only choice is between the Odyssey and the Pacifica gas. If your chief concern is price, then go outside of Costco.
You can place a factory order from the forum member Carl for 7% below invoice. On a 2019 PacHy Limited with AST that comes out to $44,555 + $300 Maryland document fee + $4,009 CA tax + registration = $48,864 out the door. Expect another $1,500 in transportation fees and it would be about $500 cheaper than the offer you have. You should be able to find a better deal on a hybrid already on the lot.
As for an Odyssey EX-L, in Northern California I can get one from AutoNation (non-haggle price) for $34,610 + tax + fees. That would be less than $40,000 and it is a non-haggle price, which will be higher than you can negotiate. If you want an Odyssey, call the AutoNation in Costa Mesa and they will give you a better price than Costco, then take that price to your local dealer and ask them to beat it.
