#11697 of 13033 Air leakage at the door

I just bought a MY13 Honda CRV EX, and today I noticed that the power door and power window switch at driver side blows cold air in. Is your car this way?
#11698 of 13033 My 2013 EX-L AWD Deal
Nov 16, 2012 (9:56 pm)
After a bit of negotiating involving a couple of dealers, I was able to score an EX-L AWD for a few bucks less than $26,500 including destination, but not including TTL, from a NW suburban Chicago dealer. I feel I was treated fairly and believe I got a pretty darn good deal.

#11700 of 13033 2013 EXL FWD $26596

I live in Birmingham and just purchased a 2013 EXL FWD for $26596. I removed some of dealership charges including dealership care (another local dealer was charging $1000+ for a clear coat "paint protector" probably a bogus charge) Add $698 for mud guards, pinstripes, wheel locks, cargo net, moonroof visor for total of $27294 before tax and tag. Add $499.50 for billing and clerical fees. I got fair mkt value for trade in and very pleased with service at the largest volume dealer in Birmingham. They found me 1.79% financing with my credit score. Because I traded in my 2011 civic lease to a honda dealership I received almost $1000 off my payoff quote which the dealer paid off. Lease had 12 months left but low mileage and monthly lease payment was just $69. Dealership gave three free oil changes. Overall I was pleased with transaction.
#11701 of 13033 2013 New CRV $24,300 OTD in N. CA.

Thanks edmund forum members! Digested as much info as possible on this thread and purchased a new 2013 CRV LX for $24,300 OTD in Vallejo, CA (tax rate 8.375) and had them LEAVE ON the 3m door trim, mudguards, and wheel locks.
Whole process from test driving, negotiations, to car warranty/financing papers took a LONGGGG 4 hours. I mentioned prices that I had seen on Edmunds and gave them the price of $23,360 OTD to beat...they wouldn't match it, and we could have fought harder but...caved in at $24,300.
As for warranty, they did offer us $1,489 for the 9 year warranty, bumper to bumper...and even was offering to knock our financing rate from 2.49 to 2.25 to make it more appealing (this made me irritated...why not just give us the 2.25 rate on the get go). Either way, we didn't get the warranty although it became very very tempting.

Could you post the dealer's name? Shame on them. I'm assuming it's Fair Honda. I know my sister went there a while ago and walked out.
You can PM me if you'd prefer though they deserve a bad rep if they earned one. There are plenty of Honda dealers in CT/Westchester.

I just got 2013 CR-V LX 2WD by OTD 22868 in Sport Honda, MD. And I got the quote OTD 22950 from O'Donnell Honda. I didn't buy in O'Donnell because the APR I can get was too high.
#11706 of 13033 2013 LX AWD $23000

Car buying experience has been truly miserable. First I went to Paragon Honda- didn't want to haggle, had USAA price that said at least $800 off MSRP. They 1) refused to accept my financing through USAA- guaranteed that if my credit score was above 700 (it was) my interest with them would be less than 4% (it came back 7.25%) 2) agreed after much drama and handwringing to take the $1000 of MSRP that I asked. But when they gave me the invoice, they had clearly added the destination fee back in on top of MSRP, hoping I wouldn't notice. When I did, showed them that that price was included in MSRP on the car's window sticker, and was ready to leave, they called me back to talk to the "big super boss" (aka Finance manager) who said they had to have some way to make money on this car. Maybe they could take $1000 off and maybe they could give me 4% financing, but only if I agreed to sign up for Honda Care for 7 years at $3800(!). Knowing I could cancel that prorated at any time, I agreed just to get my car and get out of there. He made sure to state the total amount several times.
But when he brought back the revised invoice, he tried to direct my attention to the total amount, but I noticed the price of the car was listed at $2775 (Honda Care included gratis) meaning if I canceled it, I'd get no refund. Completely, totally outrageous. I'm sure they would have added on more fees, too.
So then tried Planet Honda in Union, NJ, armed with the USAA price (which was much lower than at Paragon). Again, didn't want to haggle. But was in a bad mood and not predisposed to add-ons. They do this awful pinstriping and door protecting that they charge $595 for. I thought it was ugly and refused to get this. Sales guy said they had a new one in that didn't have it done yet, but manager came over and said it had to be done so they could get their "cushion". I refused- was forced to get all dramatic about walking out and made a big stink about making complaints, since they had said they had cars in stock at the advertised price. Ok-fine. No pinstriping. Then they told me I had to get Nitrogen in my tires as part of a mandatory pilot program the manufacturer requires for a one-time charge of $199. I insisted on calling Honda who said of course it's not mandatory. So that came off. They told me Key Care would be a guaranteed 30% off my comprehensive insurance. Of course, USAA said nope. They did charge me a $300 documentation fee. But that was the only fee besides TTL, and I was sick of all of this, so I went with it. Also let me go through USAA financing. The finance manager seemed okay. Low pressure, nice. Offered me a decent $1400 for 7 years of Honda Care, that I'm sure I could've negotiated. But at that point I was just done and said no. The whole thing took upwards of 7 hours. I like my car, but it better be as reliable as it's supposed to be, because I don't know that I'm up for buying a new one any time soon.
