#11469 of 13048 CRV EX-L FWD with navigation
Jul 26, 2012 (3:58 pm)
Bought at Pohanka Honda in Fredericksburg, VA on 7/26:
Sales price: 27,386
Sales tax (3%): 858
Doc fee: 399
I traded in a 2011 Malibu 2LT with very low mileage for $15,500. Could I have gotten a better deal? Probably. But I got the car I (or, I should say, my wife) wanted at the price I wanted. I was surprised that the car didn't come equipped with any dealer add ons, so there was no annoying negotiating over unwanted equipment. They briefly mentioned an extended warranty which I declined, and never once tried to push fabric protection, rustproofing, etc. Overall a better than average car buying experience.

My friend already bought the CRV EX 4WD at 25300 OTD today and paid with cash. I think you could get the same price if you want to buy a CRV recently. Sales man is Billy Collins. You do not have to find another buyer. My friend just bought one at this price.

No military discount. I could have got a military co-signor, but it wasnt worth our time.
We cant say who we dealt with on Edmunds, just the dealer. I got internet quotes from 5 dealers and pretty much set everything up through their internet sales girl, who set me up with a salesman when we went it just to sign papers (and get worked over by the finance guy.) By day three of dealing I had three very good quotes from 3 different dealers.
I had a great guy from Valley Honda too. Valley seemed so professional and polite I would have been just as happy buying there, but they only had Black, which my wife hated. So we ran over to Honda Superstore of Joliet and fell in love with Polished Metal. The staff at Joliet was pretty good. We werent offered coffee or water, and the finance guy tried the 'ill fill out your check' trick, but other than that the staff was very good.
To the EX-vs-LX guy, for us the EX wasnt worth it. Fogs, Tint I am adding myself. Moonroof, outdated bad-resolution nav, easily dentable alloy wheels, hold no interest for me. Not worth the $4k upcharge IMO, plus higher insurance rates. I do miss the passenger armrest though, they skipped it on the LX (possible oversight after tsunami).
Let me add, due to black plastic cladding and handles on the LX, I dont believe it would look best with some colors. Black wouldnt matter, and on my polished metal I think the black handles and cladding look BETTER than body color, because they make a really nice looking accent for the polished metal. So if youre going for an LX (which is your best deal anyway) try and look at all colors before buying sight-unseen.
