Honda CR-V, Wagon, SUV

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.

Should the tax be on the vehicle cost alone or should it be including the destination and dealer fees? I have seen people post prices both ways.
It seems the tax can be an extra $500+ if its all grouped.

Here is your breakdown
Sale price of Vehicle plus any options/ accessories
sales tax on above amount// your states tax rate
then they add after taxes dmv fee's
this total would be your out the door price/

Pin striping and door edge guards cost the dealer virtually nothing.
Nitrogen in the tires is a scam. Air is about 80 percent nitrogen. My daughter is a chemical engineer. She finds it funny people actually pay for nitrogen to be put in tires.
And of course, the dealer documentation fee is simply more profit for the dealer.
These three things actually make Planet Honda' price for the CRV $25,332 rather than $24,779.

You should see the Accord forum these dealers are robbing people blind.

Hi, I'm looking into getting the 2013 CRV EX FWD some time this year, but I was wondering if it is absolutely ridiculous to try to get this car for $25,000 OTD in southern California?

For the platinum coverage, my friend negotiated to nearly 1/2 what you are paying.

Just got pricing from a dealer in Atlanta:
Sale Price: 22503+Tax: 1462.70 (6.5% since March)+D.O.C(600)+Tag and Lemon etc (69)=OTD 24634.
Is it a good deal?
In addition, he mentioned "As with factory equipped drive out prices from other dealers, ours includes the quote price, destination charge, documentation fee,tax,title application and Georgia Lemon Law. Dealer accessories are not included." Am I missing sth or do I need to add some options?
