#12034 of 13049 Looking to purchase Honda CR-V EX AWD 2013
Feb 24, 2013 (3:13 pm)
I have leanred a great deal from edmunds and really appreciate everyone experience. Thanks for sharing. I have been looking to purchase for about 1 month now. This is the offer I was given from Planet Honda on RT. 22.
EX AWD --- $24,779
TAX -------- $1,804.81 (Thought sales tax in NJ was 7% guess I was wrong)
DMV ------- $289.00
DECOR ---- $595.00 (They said it was for hand painted pin stripe and door guards)
TIRE TAX -- $7.50
ETCH ------- $349.00
NITRO ------ $59.95
Online Reg -- $10.00
DOC --------- $398.95
OTD --------- $28,293.00
I would like the following options (Dealership Prices): Body Side Molding $499, Door Visors $399, Running Boards $699 and Hood Air Deflector $399.
I was not satified with Planet Honda 's price so I did not go back and did not negotiate with them. I did get another quote from BURNS Honda for:
Car --- $24,675 but have not gone to the dealer yet. The options were cheaper about $400 for everything I want.
Can anyone give me some adive on negotiating with the dealership? It is at the end of the month so I hope just showing up will make them cut the price.
Thanks for anyone that can help.

Check out college hill honda parts. they are the, cheapest , closest price to dealers invoice price. The exact dealers invoice price on these parts are hard to find/ know but these prices are a good start and the best price on line
This is a tuff market with Crv,And Accord.... dealers do not want to discount much.
I would take into consideration buying these honda parts online and have a shop close to your house install. you most likely will save a hundreds dollars doing it this way.

Thanks for responding. Can you negotiate with the dealership if you bring them their on-line quote?

I would try to get your best quote from another dealer also. Try to lower the price of your negotiated deal.
Go to the dealership the last day of this month. you always have the best leverage on this day.
Tell dealership if he wont lower price you will not buy Crv from him. make dealer match your best offer or tell them you will walk.
The only problem is dealer has your deposit. You would have to take dealership to small claims court.
This might end bad be prepared....

Trying to get a 2013 CRV LX FWD ,in Nc, looking around $21800 + TTL, is that too low ?

I am working with a dealer in the Atlanta, GA area and received a quote I believe can go down a few hundred to be a "best price" out the door.
2013 Honda CR-V EX AWD
$ 24,731.00 Vehicle Price ( Includes Destination )
$ 599.00 Administrative Fee
$ 1,826.93 7% tax
$ 22.00 State Fees ( Title and Lemon Law )
$ 27,947.93 Total Price / Drive Out*
*Splash Guards , Paint Protection Included
What do you think? Flexible?
I would jump on this deal in a second if the molding and edge guards were included since the total price is a few hundred more than competitors.

I got a second quote last night from BURNS Honda in NJ. Here is what they said,
$24,675 ---- CAR
$695 ---- VEK (Vehicle Enhancement Kit) -- includes mud guards, hand painted pinstripe,
wheel locks, acid inscribed window etching, custom fit cargo tray
$337 -------- body side molding installed
$344 -------- door visors installed
$272 -------- hood air deflector installed
$1,842.61 --- TAX
$249.00 ----- DOC
$7.50 ----- Tire tax
$301.00 ----- DMV
$28,723.11 ---- Total
I think this price should be lowered. From my experience of getting online quotes and going to the dealership in NJ, they alway add some type of package. One dealership added DECOR ($595) and now I see VEK ($695). I am planning to go to another dealer today and seeing what they can do for me. I will keep everyone posted. Can accessories be negotiated. Brian thanks for all the great advice you have given me. I really what to get the car for about 625 cheaper then I think it would be a good deal.

Rule number 1
Stop running around to all these dealerships wasting your time and gas.
Check dealerships inventory first.... before calling them.
Find as many dealerships that are closest to your home. Call each dealerships Internet manager and tell each one you will buy today if he meets your price offer and options wanted on vehicle. Seems like most CrV's have alot of dealer add on's..
Once you found the deal your looking for.... you could give dealer a small refundable deposit to hold car or drive to dealership to seal deal..
Do not trust any sales person telling you to come in. Internet or Sales Manager speak with first to confirm your deal..
The last 2 days of any month are the best time to buy. If you could...You buy the last day of any month this will help you get the best deal of the month. Some dealers will move a car off there lot on the last day cheaper than beginning or middle of month trying to meet that manufactorers selling incentive for the month.

Brian is right! You can do all this by phone and email. Everything is negotiable. If you had a quote from another dealer for less money I am sure the VEK package would go way down and possibly disappear. If you don't want it tell to leave it off your car! $695 is a lot for mud guards, wheel locks and a cargo tray.

Mudguards online $67.... very easy to install
wheel locks...........$36..dealers cost might be $15
Dont let these dealers rip you off on accessories. Check online prices first
