Here is my advise. Do not tip your hand. Call Every dealer back today that called you. Thank them for there pricing. Call 5 more dealerships near you.. Let each dealership know you are going to purchase Your CRV at this price of xxx at the end of the month from a dealer in Delaware. Tell Dealers that your price is what gets this deal done today Otherwise thank you again for your time. If you meet my price i buy today.. Play the waiting game... Your leverage is at the end of the month. The last day. Dealerships have the upper hand in the middle of the month. Middle of the month talks are good for feeling out and letting the better dealerships know what price gets it done.. Matter of fact..... The dealers that are calling you Are doing the same to you.
On jan 31, you make your best deal. Trust me you will receive every dealerships best price on that day. Then you could feel good about yourself knowing you got the best possible price.. Every month you wait to purchase you will see pricing get better thru the year. I would think honda will put out some better pricing after the first quarter with more help from honda corp. to dealer incentives for us. Especially if you lease there is nothing yet.
Post your Crv and what price you are targeting before any other fee's are applied.. Doc fee's ,dmv , and taxes,, and later i will repost with some more helpful tips if you would like. break down your best deal for me with all dealers pricing getting to your otd #

Good luck to you!

Google...... High volume Honda dealerships with your state M.D. and Delaware. Email everyone of these dealers with make and model and ask for there best price quote on your vehicle. Do not tell any of them what your number is to close deal. Once you decide which dealers gives you the best prices and gives you a no nonsense quote you target those dealerships first on getting the best price.
You always work the dealerships that are furthest away from your house to get the best deal. OUT Of STATE Dealers FIRST.. then you use the best price you get and start with all the dealerships that are closet to your house trying to get the same deal or better. Meet my price i buy today. That is the key Phrase in the buying car game. all dealers no what that means.. Unless there a bad dealership..so good bye to them
Once you start calling dealers that are at the furthest point your willing to travel you say to them meet my price and i will consider comming to your dealership . Play the game. If you are a good negotiator you will get dealers to bite or come close to your offer. where john smith who lives down the block has no clue how to push these dealers buttons.. dealers know who they can get over on and who may be a quick sale.. Dealerships that sell cars are your first and number one target.
The last day of any month holds the most leverage for car buying. this is how i buy and i usually will start my process last week of the month . buying on the last day if the supply and demand factor is not in my favor.
Hope this helps

#11922 of 12315 More Info Please on Extented Warranties
Jan 11, 2013 (2:16 pm)
I too am in the market for a 2013 CR-V EX-L, and I have learned a great deal of advise from all of you. It will probably save me hundreds of dollars.
I understand and agree that add-ons like an extented warranty should be left out of the negotiation on a new car to simplify things.
However, I am interested in learning whether any forum member has purchased it and what's covered, for how long, how many miles? Is the extented warranty offered by the dealership, and hence differ by each?
Any feedbacks will be greatly appreciated.
