I just bought my 2010 CR-V EX-L with Urban Titanium color two nights ago. I bought a 2WD as I live in Georgia. Are your quotes for 2WD or 4WD? It will make a difference. Invoice for the 2WD is $24,646 and for the 4WD is $25,806. That is what the dealer paid for the car. But, Honda dealers get a 2% holdback from the factory when they sell the car. Most dealers don't share their holdback, but sometimes they might. So, the real cost to the dealer for the 2WD is $24,153 plus destination fee (my region was $750). Additionally, a fair profit for most dealers is 3%. This allows them to pay their bills, etc. So, $24,153 * 1.03 = $24877.59. Then add the destination fee (I'll use my $750 for the example to take the total to $25,627.59. This is where most dealers that are offering you a fair price will start their offers. From there, if you spend time getting multiple quotes online, you should be able to get many of them to cut 1 to 2 percent off of the cost. It looks like you did that to get your $25,000 quote. It is a good price. However, if you spend a little time trying, you might find a dealer who doesn't mind breaking even or suffering a slight loss on the car. We found two dealers in our area that would do so. The main thing is to widen your search and not mention a price you will pay, just tell the other dealers what your best quote is currently, and ask them if they would like to put foward their best quote. We used www.carwoo.com to do this, then I called some of the big dealers in Atlanta. We found two that offered me an out the door quote at $26,697, which when you subtract tax, tag, and title comes out to be around $24,500 (inclusive of the destination charge).
Hope that helps. Nice choice of color. We love the car!

I just bought a 2010 FWD EX-L+navi in the San Francisco Bay area.
I priced the car at 2 dealers and was quoted the invoice price ($27285) at both of them with no negotiation. This was better than the TMV price ($27,839). But there was lots of 2010 CR-V inventory at local dealers so I thought I could do better.
I hate the new car negotiation process, so I decided to try an auto broker for the first time. I used Cartelligent in Sausalito. They got me the car for $500 under invoice (plus TTL) from Walnut Creek Honda. They charged $300 for their service, so I saved $200. However, the value to me of eliminating the new car negotiation process was priceless!
This is my 2nd Honda (I traded in my 2005 Accord V6) and my first CR-V. I love it!

You guys should check out the AMEX ZAG website with a zip code of 92354 (Loma Linda, CA). They are showing a 2010 CR-V LX 4WD for $20,723 or an EX for $22,879. This is the lowest price I have found for a 2010.
#10146 of 13052 Help On A 2010 CRV-EX
Sep 30, 2010 (7:30 am)
Believe it or not there is not one Hyundai Tucson GLS in the state of Florida to be had so I'm on to my second choice.
I'm going down to see Brahman Honda on Monday. Over the phone they mentioned being able to get me into a 2010 CRV-EX, 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year at $310/month, nothing down not including tax and license.
Any advice on both what I should offer for car and if there are any better lease deals out there?
TMV has a price of $23,577 and Amex has $23,348. I think they both may be high given that the 2011s should be here soon

Do you have a leased CRV? You might be in a good position to get out of the lease early and trade into a new vehicle. Take the extra time to compare lease buyout versus market value.
#10149 of 13052 2008 AWD vs 2WD
Oct 10, 2010 (11:26 am)
Need some advice.
I am seriously looking at two 2008 EX-L CRV's
1) 2WD; 27Kmiles for 19K
2) AWD; 23Kmiles with roof rack and fog lights for 22.5K
After seeing some of the problems on the forum with the AWD, I'm hesitant, although it is in better overall looking condition and would be nice in the rain and snow - I live in CA
Obviously the 2WD is less, but is the AWD a good addition or asking for problems?

The only reason I bought a CRV instead of a Mazda5 or other minivan type vehicle was the AWD. If you don't want AWD I think there are better choices out there.
There is always more maintenance and probability of a failure (and lower mpg) with AWD/4WD. But, if you look at the Consumer Reports reliability of CR-Vs they are pretty good.
