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 13075 More Info Please on Extented Warranties
Jan 11, 2013 (1:16 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.
#11923 of 13075 Did I get a good lease deal?

I recently leased a 2013 CRV AWD LX and I can't seem to figure out if I got a good deal or not. Some online calculators say it was good, others say not so much.
Briefly, Here are my lease terms
12k miles/year for 36 months
Total upfront: $3500(3k to reduce cap cost and 250 first month and 250 for fees)
Monthly Payment(including taxes): $250
Total Payments over 36 months: $12,250
I spent 5 hours negotiating numbers with them and believe me they tried every trick in the book. From telling me my credit score was low to good guy/bad guy.

Bought a 2013 CRV EX-L AWD for $29,700 OTD with no extras in NJ . I don't think this is a great deal.
I was desperate and just pulled the trigger. what do you guys think?

I'm planning to buy an EX-L 2WD around Los Angeles. The best offer so far is about 26000 w/o handling fee. There must be room to haggle. Anyone have any idea how much a fair price is?
