#11684 of 12327 2012 Honda CR-V EX-L 2WD (steering wheel not centered)
Nov 03, 2012 (7:26 am)
I have noticed my steering wheel is not properly centered when driving on a flat level straight road. The car appears to be tracking straight when I take my hands off the steering wheel, car does not pull left or right. Steering wheel appears to be off centered about 5 to 7 degrees to the left. I will be taking my car to the dealership (Terry Lee Honda Avon Indiana) to have them address this issue. My guess is the Toe alignment maybe a little off. I would be interested if this is a trend with this new model CR-V or if its a one off condition. Vehicle has 15,000 miles.

Hello everyone... I appreciate all the advice given here on purchasing. Just came home with our new CR-V.
Here are the details. Maybe I did ok, maybe I screwed up - but in any event, someone can learn from this!
Purchased at Smart Honda, Des Moines, IA
Paid Invoice Price - 23320 (included the 830 destination charge)
+ 197 for Mud Flaps (probably 90$ overpaid)
+ 300 for Honda Advertising Fee (think I got screwed on that).
Total Purchase Price = 23768.
Subtract $2021 for trade in on 97 honda accord with 114000 miles
Totals so far = 21747
Lein Filing Fee = 10
State title fee = 25
Title and License fees = 135 (think I got screwed here)
Taxes (5%) = 1087
Doc Fee = 185 (think I got screwed here)
Total Financed = 23182. Total if no trade in = 25203
So, if I am correct in all the places I got taken - then I paid about 600-700 too much. But, I do love the car.
Hope this helps someone out there negotiate the best price they can!

Puh, you worked a good deal. next time you buy new vehicle you will be aware of the out the door price. when you negotiate a car price you then need to find out about doc fee's and ad fee's etc.. Try buying online or by phone next time its fast and easy .. enjoy your CRV
#11687 of 12327 2013 CRV EX-L AWD $27360 + TAX

I just bought a 2013 CRV EX-L AWD for $27360 plus taxes and DMV registration fees in Maryland.
I think it is a good price for the car, am I correct?

Wow, that's a good price. Would you mind to share your negotiating skill with us?
I only can get $28500 in WA. Maybe I should continue to negotiate the price with the dealers here.

Raejune, target 10 to 15 dealerships in your area. Wait till the last 2 days of the month. Call each dealers Internet Manager. Tell every dealer that for 200 below Invoice Pricing and no Doc fee's or Ad fee's you will purchase your model of choice and color with a credit card deposit that moment. Be firm tell each dealer thats the number that gets it done today. let each Dealer counter your offer till you feel comfortable with YOUR buying price. This is how you get the best deal on buying a car. GO DOWN YOUR LIST . I guarantee you by the end of your calls you will have the best price in your area. When i buy on phone or online i have bought my car of choice in 1 hour or less. Never failed me in over 30 yrs buying Cars this way. Supply and demand do play a big part in the process. After calling the dealers and you have not hit your target price of 200 Below Invoice i would suggest you take the closet deal to your price and home area, Or wait another month or two till dealers have alot of CRV's on there lots. Then you will find pricing at invoice or below.. Make every Internet manager you call give his best price before saying good-bye. The dealerships that cant give you a price right there on the phone hang up and xxx them off your list. Bad dealership. This is a fast and simply process. Its a Yes or No from each dealer you call.. Remember any Dealer that sells you this car for Invoice price still makes money from the Dealer Hold-back, and factory incentives back to the Dealership....... Good luck.......Brian

POST DEALERS NAME..For that price in Danbury CT, let them keep it. Its a shame to say but some poor mis informed HERB buyer will get roped in and the dealership knows it. MAKE SURE YOU POST THAT DEALERSHIPS NAME SO BUYERS WILL BEWARE OF THAT BAD DEALERSHIP IN THAT AREA.....

I used CarWoo, thanks to a posting at Edmunds Forums.
I was able to reduce $200 from the original quote. The dealership was around 60 miles from my house.
#11693 of 12327 Purchased AWD EX-L w/Nav
Nov 05, 2012 (10:06 am)
All - just purchased 2013 AWD EX-L w/Nav in Silver and Black Interior from Ourisman Honda in Bethesda, MD.
Got a good deal (below invoice) and waived processing fee. Great guys there and nice to work with - very pleasant experience.
In order to get that price and have that experience I have done a lot of homework and research and brought in an offer from another dealership that they matched. Another dealership did not have color I wanted and Ourisman had almost all color variations in my desired trim.
Ama, Diego, Jose and Robert are all great guys there. Detailed my car, filled up full tank of gas, etc. Highly rated customer service.
Hope this helps prospective buyers..
