#11034 of 12328 HONDA CRV EX OR EXL
Mar 18, 2012 (2:33 pm)
Hello, After reading all the messages, I can see the dealers don't lower the price of the HONDA CRVs very much. My daughter has a 2000 with about 120, 000 miles and would like to purchase a new CRV. Since she really doesn't need to buy would she be better off waiting until the 2013 comes out and then start looking? or would she start looking at RAV 4s or another brand. Are the cars compatible but more reasonable prices? My 16 year old granddaughter hopes to get my daughter's car....we pass all are cars around.

Below invoice with add-ons and even the doc fee? How could you do that? The best quote I could get in Minneapolis is $475 over. Am I being ripped off?

to Lion King- just so that I am clear- the 26,800 was for the vehicle (CR-V EXL AWD, no navi or entertainment pkg). This price included the destination fee. I had to pay doc fee (250) and license (33.50) plus tax on top of that price. I had lots of internet quotes, and I really think that made the difference. We were apart $300, and I got up and walked out. They found me in the parking lot, told me they would do it for my price and I went back in. Be prepared to walk out! It also helped to be a well qualified buyer (806 credit score). I had no trade in to negotiate- only thing they had to make money on was financing- I came in with my own from credit union, but they beat it (2.7 thru Capital One). Overall, I was really pleased with my deal, but I think alot of it has to do with where you are trying to purchase (I am seeing much higher prices in other parts of the country). Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. I believe the invoice for your CR-V is $27,129 so you got a below-invoice super deal.
#11039 of 12328 Buying without financing
Mar 19, 2012 (9:46 am)
Hello everybody, I'm going to the states for my phD.
I'm looking for a EXL model possibly with navigation.
The big problem is. I don't have any credit record in the US!!!
So it means either I have to pay over 10% interest(If they even consider it) or buy the car without financing.
Would it be more expensive or cheap If I say I'm paying full amount in cash??
I'm looking for a figure somewhat around 2800.

Since you have no US credit, getting financing is going to be difficult if not impossible.
I used to deal with a lot of immigrants that Microsoft would hire and they could often go through a company sponsered by Microsoft.
Do not expect the same interest rates as a person who has lived in the US all of their life with good, established credit.
And, I would maybe think about lowering your expectations a bit. You'll ahve a better chance of being approved for something more conservative such as a lesser model or maybe a Civic instead of the most expensive CRV that is made.
The dealer could care less if you are financing or paying cash. they get paid the same either way.

My husband and I are in the middle of negotiating the price for a 2012 CRV-EX AWD. We are currently looking at $24,900 including the destiantion fee and all-weather mats and cargo tray included. They will also give 3 free oil changes and life state inspections and loaner car. Does this seem like a good price? We are in PA outside Philly. We are working with the internet sales dept and got quotes from 4 dealers ranging from $25,995 to $25,198. The dealer invoice for this car is about $24,668.

I am getting ready to purchase a CR-V EXL, 2 WD, (No nav) package in the DC area for $28000 all inclusive (T/T/F), plus FREE lifetime oil changes, car wash, state emissions and inspections, tire rotations.
Not sure if I should keep looking. This was through internet purchase.

Just remember, those "lifetime" oil changes are far from "FREE" along with those other things. They are simply rolled into the price of the car.
Nothing is ever free.
Sounds good though!
