im going through this problem too . im trying to buy a 2012 honda crv ex 2wd. they offered me a price at $28,200 out the door if i trade in my 1999 toyota camry le with 98,100 miles. i said i want to pay $ 22,000 out the door. they called again trying to bullshit me that they will give me a good deal when i go back to the dealership. they know they have one of the best suvs so they aim for a high price.
be firm and dont back down. demand a lower price. tell them there is other good deals such as toyota rav 4 and subaru forester . sometimes they have end of the month sales and end of the summer deals that you save thousands.

Well, I've been in contact with about ten dealers in my area, and no one is willing to match or beat the $23,250 quote/$25,500 OTD price, so I'm accepting it. I think it is a good deal for this area at least, and for this time of year. I'm not sure an OTD price of 22K is feasible in this area (Georgia). Good luck to you though, hope you get it!

Finally bought 2012 CRV EX 2WD Polished Metal Metallic w/grey interior this past weekend thru Norm Reeves Honda Cerritos for $25,800 out the door (includes destination and taxes). That was the best deal anywhere -- Norm Reeves Huntington Beach and West Covina would match it as well but didn't have the color combo. Buena Park and Spreen Honda were quoting $25255 out the door but either had no inventory or just wanted you to drive all the way out there for nothing.

good luck too. the good news is youre getting a good car even it isnt a good price. you have to wait until late summer when the 2013 crvs come out to get a lower price. im sure you will be happy with the honda crv

I just bought the 2012 CR-V AWD EX-L w/Nav with splash guards, all season mats, cargo tray, wheel locks, and remote starter. I paid $30,200 out of the door (OTD). Here is the break up:
CR-V: $30605.00 ($810 destination charge included)
Wheel Locks: $78 .00
All Season Mats: $154.20
Cargo Tray: $125.60
Splash Guards: 161.50
Remote Starter (3rd party MiCorp): $379
Total accessories: $898.30
CR-V + Accessories: 27996.24
Tax (6.25%): 17.49.76
Doc Fee: $329
I hope I got a decent deal. This was the best price anyone would offer. I got quotes and counter quotes from atleast 10 dealers in the region. Couldn't wait till end of month. Maybe I could have saved a bit more that way.

#11065 of 13034 Re: 27350 OTD; am getting 28.5 mpg [raptor11]

Guys guys, Its unbelievable, I got 28.5 mpg avg so far (65% Highway and 35% City). 6/10th of a tank got me 220 miles.
I am sorry for previously stating that, I was disappointed about CRV mpg. I am revising my statement. It was my fault and I realized I was driving like nuts before. (especially cuz I was driving a 3.8L V6 before, I tended to be stomping on the gas always and breaking hard).
In city, I let go of the throttle and let the car cruise/coast by itself, whenever I am going to hit a red light/stop sign. CRV has very low rolling resistance, which means there is plenty of potential energy in the body, the car will keep coasting for a while, till it comes to a stop. Try this technique by going easy on throttle, and watch the next 2 traffic lights ahead and use throttle wisely, you should see the remarkable difference. Mine is a 12' AWD EX. I am so happy with the purchase. I have no doubts about EPA. EPA estimates are for sane drivers. If you have driven a Turbo/V6 then, you have to be re-trained to drive a 2.5L honda. Its feather like, its sips fuel, if you drive wisely. If you keep stomping on the pedal, you're gonna get 20mpg and nothing more. Get a V6 instead. But, I love my CRV with gas at $3.90.
I am going to join hypermilers club too. will keep posting my updates here....have fun guys. Safe driving. Enjoy your 2012 CRV, all.

Just got EX-L 2WD 25,170 + doc fee ttl. Otd 27,100.
Mar 24, 2012 (10:41 pm)
I got $22,500 as a e-price quote through email from a dealer for 2012 LX, AWD, no extra option, before TTL.
It appears to me that this is a good deal. (I could be wrong because I just started the research). I've never dealt with dealers before. So I am also worried if this "e-price" is a common trick (i.e. they will tell you the offer's gone when you actually visit the dealer in person.
So just wondering if this is a good price!
