out here the dealers stick it to you on "dealer prep". better to get the out the door price than base. in july i bought my foreman S for 6300 out the door. but that includes 7 1/2 % sales tax and dealer prep. base price was 5150.00. it is my understanding that the dealer pays honda about 4800 for the foreman so you should be able to negotiate accordingly. also thats a year old model that the dealer should be trying to unload.

This place has a internet speical if you print it out they don't charge set up fees. It says right on there that all you pay is the price of the quad and tax and title. I know all about the set up fees, I think it's a load of BS. Why do they do that why don't they just put that on the price of the quad and not hide it?

I saw a thread in high lifter that there is a place in IL selling 05 for close to $5000 not sure if it was out the door or not, but I think they should come down in price like to 52 or 53 out the door, but that is just my 2 cents

Southern Honda in Chatanooga tn. has the best prices we have found. You can get an 05 for less than 5000 and an 06 for around 5400. They are NO BS. You cant walk in there and haggle. They sell bulk. We hauled 5 back to MS in December.

Well, you can get a 2006 model for $5499 OTD, I did!

GOTO Southern Honda. My friend and I bought two Foremans this past Saturday. Mine was a 2006 Foreman 4x4 ES. Their price was $5483 OTD. They charge ZERO tax on out of state buyers, no dock fees, no setup fees, no assembly fees, no prep charges. But, they did charge me $16 local Business Tax. So really my atv was $5499 OUT THE DOOR!!! Local dealer was wanting $6500 out the door for the same exact atv. BTW, if you are set on a 2005 model, they are $5183.

You just have to realize that Southern Honda has a ton of business, especially on Saturdays. Most people work during the week, so they hit the dealer early on Saturdays. We got there at 10:30am, we left at 5:00pm. I bet there were 150 people there. If you can, go on a Wednesday. Their outfit is kinda packed and small, but the good news is, they are building a new 100,000 sq. ft. dealership 1/4 mile down the road from them. Supposed to be finished anytime now.

I really like the deals at southen honda but its 8.5 hours away. It's well worth the drive but I don't know if it's doable. It fits right into what I want to spend and what my payments would be. The $1400 bucks it would save would pay for the trip down there and back. I have a month to make up my mind. I'm telling you it's killing me, I have been counting down the months for months and now it's days. I can't wait. I stoped at a dealer an hour from here and they have one 05 ruby and still wanted $6800 before fees. CRAZY!

Now that I think about it I will spend more gas, hotel, etc and it's only $316.00 cheaper than the one thats only 3 hours away. What to do, what to do.

Go to your dealer say look this is what I can get it for at southern honda a place that is 8.5 hours away, tell them it would take you so much in gas to get there and then add in milage on your truck (the government milage for this year is at 44.5 cents per mile) Tell them that makes their quad worth so much. and tell them you would really like to buy it local but if you can get a much better deal some where else you will travel.

They may look at you and say have a good weekend, or they may drop their price a little more making it worth it to buy it at home.

just my thought

I tried that with my local dealer. They kinda chuckled at me. So, I told them I would rather keep my business in my home town but I sure don't care to drive 4.5 hours to save myself over $1000 dollars on the same exact atv. The next day, I was southbound and down. I burned a whole saturday on the road and at the dealership, but it was worth it I think. Plus, I had a friend with me, so I didn't get bored.
