Shopping for a 2011 CR-V (Maryland) and immediately every sales reps tell me within the 1st few minutes that inventory is critically low due to the Tsunami disaster and I should consider buying that weekend.
Since most US owned CR-Vs are made in Ohio or Mexico and Honda has released several statements saying inventory will be ok in the US; at least on the CR-V, the Civic is another story.
So I'm not sure if I'm buying the shortage BS. The inventory issue might be self imposed by struggling dealers looking to reduce costs but that's their problem. I'll still go with whom ever is sticking close to invoice.

Has anyone had luck with pricing on an EX-L with Navigation? I'm in the Chicago burbs and first the dealership said $31,799 with destination then said he would do $30K. I just got a quote from another dealer for $29K and change plus possibly destination (confirming). They only had black/black color combo on the lot which is out for me (my 08 CR-V chipped like crazy with the thin paint so I really don't want a dark color). I walked, but it was also because they were not so great with my acura trade in.
Does this pricing sound about right? I am seeing invoice for these at two price points- $27,985 and $28,795. Not sure what the difference is? Has anyone gotten below $30K with destination?

Your post gets my attention for 2 reasons:
1. I'm now looking for an EX-L w NAV (because I really want the rear camera). I am just now starting the process of getting the car.
2. I used to live in the Chicago burbs til 5 years ago, and I'm curious to know which dealerships you're talking to. I definitely can share my own experiences (good and not so good) if you'd like.

To your question on the differing prices: remember that the EX-L w NAV comes both as 2WD and AWD, the later being more expensive. Double check which vehicle the dealers are talking about.

I purchased a 2010 crv exl with nav, leather, etc for 25000 plus tax and fees. had 9500 miles on it. Question is: I bought the bumper to bumper for 1250 (warranty soulutions) - can go to any mechanic and no deductible. It's good for 6 more years and 90k miles. Finance guy said they make 25 bucks on deal. My mechanic says won't need it. Rip off? Also what is this bs "theft deterent" device charge of 100? He said it was something that is etched on glass and all customers buy it. Bought this in LA county. It's a nice car but I paid too much - almost 29k out the door with the warrenties.

We live in the Sac area of N. Cali. We paid $21,316 on Monday at Manly Honda in Santa Rosa. The closest local dealers could come was $22,550. Well worth driving 100 miles.
Thanks Manly Honda and Truecar.com
Great time for the sales tax to drop 1% also.

Never buy new car extended warranty from the dealers. There are genuine Honda dealers sell for less if you call them. I got mine from one in Ohio with the price below. This is 'Honda Care', the genuine Honda provided warranty program. But you are buying an used CRV, so it might not work.
CRV has already a security system installed. No need to spend more.
Plus usually OTD cost for a brand new 4WD/EXL w/ Navi is 30k.
