just got back... here is my suggestion Use above dealerships. let them all know what your price is to buy, you could do 2 things .
1- take the lowest price you see in this forum and build on that number with every dealership listed above.
2- use my formula on buying the last 2 days of this month. If you call every dealership on your list and tell each dealerships Internet manager or internet sales people that you will buy Said model, color choice and options for this price............ you buy that moment from them.
If they cant meet your asking price tell them to give you there best price and you will consider it . Call next dealer and down the line you go. If you do not get your number after calling all these dealers sit back gather your best prices you recieved and target just those dealers on March 31 the last day of the month. You will see they will all call back to earn your business. when each dealer calls you back tell them that xxx price seals the deal that moment . tell them if you want this sale i will give you a credit card deposit.
Play the Game. Dealers wont give you there best price in the middle of the month. The last 2 days is when you start your buying process.
here are a couple more dealerships that are high volume dealerships.
Herb Chambers in M.A
Price Honda ....D.E
All dealerships that want you to come down make sure you decline. Work your best deal online or by phone with the sales manager or internet manager.
Ask for them directly to discuss price.
On the last 2days / last day of any month is when we have the most buying leverage. If your not A GOOD NEGOTIATOR start your buying process on the 2nd to last day . Last day is the best time to buy... Start late afternoon if you are good..Dealerships are trying to make there Sales quotes and end of the month incentives.
I buy my vehicles the last day of any month. Online or buy phone Dont waste your time walking thru these dealerships unless its the last day of any month.
Doc fee's are added dealer profit know what each dealers doc fee's are and add there doc fee's to sale price of vehicle. Do not let these dealerships take back 3 to 6 hundred in doc fee's. The smart buyer can get around this fee.
hope this helps

If your not a good negotiator. Email about 50 dealerships with what your looking to buy and price. that usually breaks the ice and you could email them back and forth.
The key thing is your telling each dealership what price you will buy at .
On the last day of march you make your best deal..

Yes all dealerships that wont deal online, or phone move on..... only dealerships with in driven range you might want to visit on the last day of any month. like 7pm before they close.. Dest/charge of 830 is paid by buyer cant negotiate that charge .

Please let me know if anyone in MN has a better deal on lx AWD.
#12113 of 13098 QUESTION IF I GOT A GOOD DEAL?
Mar 18, 2013 (7:06 pm)
I just purchased a 2013 CRV AWD BLACK (love black). Sticker price was about $27,000. I got it for OTD $28,500 including everything (taxes, fees, etc), AND 0% for 5 years! I'm hoping I got a good deal?!? They really were telling me it's either sticker price with 0% for 5 years, OR a price below sticker-if I pay CASH, since 0% for 5 yrs is not normally offered- at least not here in Ohio. Tax here is 6.5%, but the $28,500 was OTD everything. I did put $5,000 down bc I decided not to trade in my old car.
In Cincinnati, Ohio. Thanks!

If you paid msrp full sticker price on your vehicle it was not a good deal. if you paid dealers invoice price plus that good finance rate that would be a good deal.
Either way you bought a great vehicle with great resale value.
On your next purchase always check the edmunds board for pricing in your area before buying..
All new car purchasing should be done on the last day of any month.

I didn't exactly pay sticker price, but then I didn't exactly pay dealer's invoice, because:
Sticker= ~ $27,000.00 MSRP
Pro Pack (mats, etc): always $529.00
Licensing/dmv fees: $33.50
Doc Fee: always $250.00
I Paid--> $28,500 OTD with 0% for 5 years
So I saved about $1,000........does this sound good?

dealer selling you CRV for 127 below invoice price.
add your doc fee's to that below number and thats your above invoice cost price.
Dealerhold back on that car is over 500. your not going into that number. you should be..
If you really press this dealer at the end of the month you should be able to get another 300 or more of that price.
I would call more dealers by phone or online and work that number lower. making your purchase on march 30th to the lowest bidder for your business.
this is the end of the 1st quarter for car companies you will make your best deal on that last day. read my prior posts on buying and apply what i'm saying you will save some money..
Good luck if you need me just yell.
