Thanks Brian.I started doing what you suggested.
Can I return the vehicle and walk away?I love to do that but I am not sure what to do and what will be implication incase they didn't take it back.
So,i agree to trade in at same price on which they sold me.
Its just 20 days since i purchased my car and I am so upset now.Lesson learned.
Which site is reliable to get invoice price of car?

Read the fine print. I would find legal advice from a professional. I would walk away from paragon if i could. They dont deserve your hard earned money.
Check out edmunds home page you can find pricing on all vehicles.

I am not sure whom should I contact for legal advice.So,I am just trying to avoid such complication since right now dealer is nice and ready to switch back vehicle for same price.
I started doing some homework for Honda CRV EX-L.
Invoice : 27860(include destination fees)
I just thought to get Penfed certificate from Car buying service incase dealership make things situation complex.
And you know what..I got different rates:
Edison NJ: 27260(Estimated member price)
WoodSide NY: 28159(Estimate member price)
So,I am little worried as I am still waiting for my registration to come so that I can visit the dealer.

Sorry about the delay. Here is the breakdown:
1,729.27 tax (which I just noted is not the 7%)
276 registration, plate
I guess I could have got it for a few hundreds less.

NJ has tire tax ($7.5). Your tax is correct. 1721.77 + 7.5

Finally find the Mountain Air Metallic color after a month of search. Got a few good quotes from Honda dealers around the Bay Area. The email blitz strategy didn't work for me. First of all, about half of the dealers didn't have a email address, only price quote forms on their website. Of the other half I have sent the email to, none responded. This was at end of Dec 2012. Maybe this strategy use to work, but dealers here seem to have caught on.
I had luck getting quotes from dealers website and american express/penfed true car website. Here are the various quotes from the dealers
anderson: $24888 (dealer website)
southbay: $24920 (dealer website and in person visit)
el cerrito: $24778 (penfed truecars)
vallejo : $25500 (amex truecar, saleswomen very slow to repsond, so I didn't bother negotiate further)
autowest: $25000 (penfed truecar, don't like this dealer, try to play games rather give a quote)
morgan hill: $25500 (dealer website)
Would have bought from Anderson/Southbay if they had the color I wanted. Finally I bought the Mountain Air Metallic from Honda of Redwood city at end of Jan 2013. It was a very straight forward transaction. Cash offer and no trade in.
$80 doc (max for california)
+ ttl (no accessories or other fees)
