#10539 of 13050 Just bought CR-V AWD EX
Sep 12, 2011 (9:49 am)
I had been a loyal Toyota owner (5 cars/truck/SUV) but have had recent problems with my 2002 Highlander that I had babied so figured I would give Honda a try.
I just bought a 2011 CR-V AWD EX for $23,694 + $298 Documentation fee. I wanted a 2WD because I will not be driving much in snow but there were none available in the Northeast in the colors I found acceptable (without yellow interiors which I consider suicide with 2 grandson boys). I got Urban Titanium Metallic with black interior.
The initial price was $23,992 but I talked them into dropping the Documentation fee which is on the form so they just lowered the price by $298 to $23,694. This is below both the Factory Invoice and the Dealer Cost.
I used truecar.com which is an incredible tool where you just punch in the car you want and you get pointed to several no-negotiation very low priced dealers in your area. Keep checking because the prices can change quite a bit. I ended up buying when the price dropped an additional $1,000 from the already low prices.
The dealer I ended up with was Lundgren in Auburn MA which has additional benefits where you get a free extension to the drivetrain warranty to 7yr/100K miles as well as other dealer perks including several free no-paint dent pop-outs, service loaners, etc. the dealer had very good reviews.
Since I will not be driving a lot I passed on the extended warranty but after shopping around the best price I found for a true Honda Care warranty was online at Saccucci Honda, which also had good reviews. The one I was considering was 8yr/100K/$0 deductible for $935. 8yr/120K/$0 deductible is $1,070.
I hope my switch to Honda was a good decision. Happy shopping.

I just got a random promo email from a local Honda dealer that all 2011's have to go. I wonder how well they are being priced to move? Anyone know when the 2012's come out and what do you expect an EX 4x4 to go for?

I have received following offer - best quote so far for 2011 Honda CRV FWD LX model:
20609 (destination\Regional Adv fees included) + 489 dealer fees + TAG + TAX .
I'm hoping i may be able to reduce dealer fees somewhat when i personally visit them, but this is the best quote so far via email\phone follow up. How does this look? Any other tips? I'm in new car market for the first time, and would appreciate any help i can get.

I just got an SE. I paid $60 more than you, but I got the 0.9% 60 month financing.

.9 for 60 months wow.
What was your OTD price for the SE 4x4?

Woah, that's nice, mind if I ask you where you got it from?

A dealer is giving me a quote of 22,800 plus tax, DMV. He says that price includes destination. Does this sound like a good deal in the NYC area?

Any one have any idea how much OTD for the 2011 CRV EX 2WD in Northern California?
I am looking to get one very soon.
