#12040 of 12328 Looking to purchase Honda CR-V EX 2013
Feb 26, 2013 (7:54 am)
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

Does anything think tossing in an add-on to that price is asking too much?

#12046 of 12328 2013 Honda CR-V EXL 2WD Lifetime Powertrain Warranty in South Carolina
Feb 27, 2013 (6:02 pm)
Thank you all of the contributors shared the buying experience.
After I read thru last 6 months of this forum, I learned many tricks in how to negotiate/buy a new car. Then, I bought a new 2013 Honda CRV EX-L 2WD. out the door price is $26,714.
Here is the breakdown:
$26,176.50 Car (including destination charge, splash guards, wheels locks, & lifetime powertrain warranty*)
$198.50 Closing fee/doc
*Lifetime powertrain warranty needs to pay $100 deductible each time.I can do my own maintanence like oil change & tune up.
I heard Honda's engine & transmission is very good. I hope I don't have to use the warranty!

I bought a first car with the 1st dealer that I went to in Maryland. I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not and was wondering if I could get some advise! I guess I can't return it but wanted some views.
CRV 2013 AWD LX with Wheel locks and Paint matched door moldings (as per the receipt)
plus Taxes $ 1,392
dealer processing charges $ 200
Tags $ 187
Platinum Coverage service for 100,000 miles or 7 years for $ 1,198.15 (is this a good deal? I have no clue but I agreed to pay for this).
The OTD vehicle price was $24,779 plus $1,198.15 for the extra platinum coverage.

I have the following questions:
1. What is the average OTD price for the 2013 CR-V EX-L with Navigation in NJ/NY.
2. Is CR-V EX-L w/Nav a better option or Acura RDX AWD w/o Nav. Assuming (based on the consumer discussions) that Honda's navigation system is not all that great.

Save your money......... Buy a garmin nuvi for under $200. The new models have a 5' screen, lane guidance with Arrows and Voice prompts. If you do not need blue tooth............. The Nuvi lm50 is a great machine for the price. My 2012, X-5 has the Nav and id rather use my garmin.
