#12059 of 12315 Closed the deal on the Honda CR-V EX 2013
Feb 28, 2013 (9:15 pm)
Hello everyone I closed the deal this Wednesday. Think I got an OK deal in New Jersey. I paid $28,573 minus $1000 trade-in value for my Honda Civic 2000 with 189,000 miles. So my OTD price was $27,573 with 4 options: the hood air deflector, door guards, side molding and window guards. The Vehicle enhancement Kit (VEK) which was included in the price gave me mud guards, wheel locks, acid inscribed window etching and custom fit cargo tray.
This was an exhausting experience and next time I will take Brians advice and do most of my negotiating on the phone. I know the sales people have to make a living, but man dealing with them is very difficult. Overall I learned a great deal of information from peoples experiences and thanks all of you for sharing.

Thanks for your reply. I got a couple more questions:
What would be an average OTD for CRV EX-L in NJ?
I am confused whether to go for CR-V EX-L or Acura RDX. What do you suggest?

#12066 of 12315 CRV-EX AWD bought 2-28-13 Harrisburg Pa
Mar 02, 2013 (11:24 pm)
I called several dealers in central Pa. to price an EX AWD. After two phone calls, Faulkner Honda in Harrisburg gave $24,675 price (destination charge included) for EX model with Bridgestone tires, floor mats, wheel locks, very clean, ready to go. Doc fee $115.00--no prep fees or tire taxes. Dealer gave $750 more for 2003 Toyota Matrix trade-in than Toyota dealer did. Dealer-specific freebies included waiver of first-year deductible if vehicle needs collision repair (and if vehicle repaired at dealer).
Very professional staff. Heather and Andy were excellent salespersons, Steve an excellent warranty/finance/documents person who went over everything clearly and fairly. Would buy from these folks again. We saw no prevarication or underhandedness while we were there.
Note that this deal was made late in day on Feb. 28th--last two hours of last day of Presidents' Day sale. Staffers may have been working on final monthly bonus quotas. While we were there five other Hondas sold in the space of two hours.

May be Acura RDX is not a bad option . I was in the same boat but bought a CR-V 2013 EX-L .Witn a 100 dollars more per month I could have bought the Acura .
My OTD price was -- 31, 500 .
Looks like I paid more than others .

Let me correct the numbers -- 30,500 instead of 31,500 .
But still , looks like a lot more .I don't know how others have paid less.
