#11801 of 12315 My 2013 EX-L AWD Deal
Dec 22, 2012 (3:45 pm)
I bought the CR-V EX-L AWD today (no NAV or DVD) at Sussman Honda, in Roselyn, PA.
I used True Car pricing for my initial 3 internet quotes. In addition, I sent out my car requirements to about 10 other dealers in PA, NJ and DE via the internet. Many of the dealers wanted me to come in and test drive the car. I refused and told them that I would only come in to sign the paperwork and pick up the car. Once I got a really good car price of $27,295.00. (Out the door Price was $29,314.00) I sent out a 2nd round of requests to see if anyone could beat that price. I also focussed my attention on Out the door Price, as many of the dealers charged fees and other costs to build up the price. At this point many dealers told me that they could not get close to that price. I was down to 5 dealers that were willing to beat the $29,314.00 price, but Sussman gave me a Out the door Price of $28,837.00 and they were the closest to my house so I decided to go with them.
I ended up paying $29,978.62 OTD, which included ALL the fees and taxes. $3,077.00 put on my Visa (to get points). The credit card limit for the car purchase was $2000.00 but I was able to also put the extended warranty on a credit card bringing the total to $3,077.00. The remainder was paid with personal check. No special Honda financing was required to get this deal.
Details look like this:
Car price: $27,000 including destination charge.
All Documentation and fees: $217.00
Extended Warranty $1077.00 (8 Years or 75000 Miles) (That wasn't part of the original deal but it seemed reasonable, considering that my deal was the best price of about 12 dealers that I spoke with via email) I realize that they made some profit back on the extended warranty.
Taxes: $1684.62 PA 6%
Last night, the salesperson called me to tell me that the car also came with a Power pack which I thought was how they were going to hustle me. It included wheel locks (installed), Honda plastic/rubber trunk liner an car etching. To my surprise he said that it was included with the car.
While at the dealership, I was concerned that they weren't going to honor the deal, since many other dealers said that the deal quoted wasn't possible. To my surprise, there wasn't any shenanigans and the only up sell was the extended warranty, which again didn't seem that outrageous to my wife or I.
I was very satisfied with my purchase. I hope this helps someone else to get a great deal.

What is this $500 flex cash refered to in several posts?

No, because there was not any financing and they did not offer the $500 Flex Cash that others were talking about.

Sorry, maybe I didn't make my message clear, I have no idea what Flex Cash or where it would come in on a deal.

If you finance all or portion (I was told from 8k to 10k by the salesman, but I would not trust him) of the money for your car with Honda Finance Services and agree to their conditions, the dealer will add $500 to the price. And on the paper the price of the car will look larger by $500, but you will be required to pay whatever price you agree upon. Their conditions are not very favorable for a customer, however. I have a score of 800+ and was given 4.4%, . It was calculated that if I borrow $10k, I will end up paying 1,171.40 finance charges which according to my calculations was for 2 yrs and 8 months This is what I have in my contract. How they came up with this figure I do not know, but I did not care. My intention was to pay off this loan in a few days which I did and ended up paying $8.40 finance charges. So, if you want to use this "incentive", you have to get their financing. I tried to explain this as best as I could.
#11809 of 12315 2013 CR-V LX 2WD how to purchase
Dec 23, 2012 (7:59 am)
My husband and I are interested in purchasing an LX 2WD after Christmas. Our local dealership seems to stock the top end models more. They have a handful of LXs, but all of them are AWD. Our budget is tight, and the 2WD is the only way I believe we're going to get our payment where we want it. So, how do I get the 2WD I want in the color I want at the price I want? I'm good on negotiating the price I want, I have my truecar number, and if we don't get at least that, I'm walking, but if they don't have a 2WD, how do I get them to order one for me?
This is the first new-new car I will have ever bought, so I'm not quite sure how to go about it. Thanks!

Read my prior posts on How and when to buy a car Online or buy Phone. I live in N.Y. so i know what your saying about limited 2wd CRV there just are not many on the lots if any. If you are a good negotiater like you say you will have no problem getting the best price in your area.....................Brian
