#30 of 39 2003 CRV - Here in 2-3 days
Oct 26, 2002 (6:43 pm)
Posted this on the main board as well:
Got a call from my dealer today - I have the VIN and CRV will be here in 2-3 days. Am getting 5 Speed EX - Chianti Red. Paying $800 over invoice.
Can't wait for vehicle to get here. Am planning on adding the woodgrain accents to the dash and doors as well as the cargo cover through Handaaccessories.com.

wow, you got a good deal.
We will get ours on Monday or Tuesday.
We pay $580 less than MSRP($22,860), and that was the best deal around.
We get Red also. My kids like Blue, my husband likes Tan... so I picked Red =)

When you say you paid $580 less thank MSRP, is that with everything included? I'm being offered a 2003 Red CRV EX - auto at $22,500 with everything (taxes, tags and destination charges) included. Just wondering if this is a decent deal?

The sticker price on a EX is almost $23k so if they are quoting you $22500 with tax licenses included thats a terrific deal. I would make sure they are quoting you the right vehicle when you go sign the paper.

They are finally here.
My dealer is giving me a price of $20,150(w/destination charges,tag and tax.
I don't want any dealer accessories because I can get them at a better price and installed by a honda dealer mechanic.
They are including all of the interior and exterior special coatings pkg.
Is this a good deal?
#35 of 39 A good deal???

This is $540 ABOVE the 'destination & MSRP' price SO, I'd have to know your TAX RATE & "tag fee".
Tne dealer should split out the amount they are discounting.
Generally, the demand for the CR-V is good, but the 2WD is NOT popular in the winter (except maybe in Sun Belt states...). You should be getting a discount of at least $300-500 dollars from the MSRP of $19150 before one could consider this a "good deal". Edmunds has the detsination charge listed as $460. WE NEED TO KNOW the amounts "left out".

Destination charge is $460
Tax is 6.5% (Florida)
Tag is $135 (transfer fee)
The sticker price on this car is $19.300
Good deal or not?

If I back calculated everything correctly...
Sounds like the selling price (including destination charge, which in IL should have sales tax applied...) is around $18800
That looks to be over $500 off the MSRP -- a pretty good deal!
Can you do better? Who knows... I doubt this is "as low as they can go", but if you are happy it might not be worth grinding out an extra $100-200 buck.
Dealers are not yet slashing $1000s off any 03 CR-Vs, and I doubt that will happen unless something tragic happens to the economy.

I got $500 less than MSRP for the 2003 model. Unfortunately, it takes forever to get the car.
