Many dealerships want you to buy from there lot inventory or they try to hit you with a small finder's fee 300 to 500 which is b.S.. Dont let them sucker you into the extra money. If they want your business make them find your model with no charge. The better dealerships will just find/ swap/ or order your vehicle if its not in there stock.
To avoid this problem check the Dealers web sites and inventory before calling to inquire or to buy. Send emails out to several dealerships for a E price quote to get a feel of pricing in your area.. At the end of the month Call or visit these dealerships the last 2 days of any month for the sale.
If your buyers Order/ Bill of Sale is written up Signed and paid for by the end of the month it counts for that months sale.. Vehicle does not have to be there.
90 % of times i will have the buyers order faxed to me at my house on the last day of the month.. I then pick up the vehicle when dealers has prepped car and its ready for P/U. I am loyal to no dealership . My motto has always been best price closest to my house gets my business.

Maybe not this year.
Dealers in my area are a little more hungry this month. The best prices are now improved $500+ dollars on the CR-V quotes I received last month. Very tempting....

A so called lifetime power train warranty is basically useless. No business could actually do this and remain in business. The small print and requirements are designed to assure no payouts are made. Such warranties are intended to make the buyer believe they are getting something for nothing and, I suppose, trick some buyers into paying more for the vehicle. As with any product offered by a dealer, it is best to check out independent reviews on the internet.

Another thing to note is that it is not transferable the benefits (whatever) are only to the owner and really end with the sale.
I do not intend to keep the vehicle for more than 2-3 years.

Congratulations on the new CRV!
Please share the details of your quote/purchase.... (Base+ Destination Fee +Documentation Fee, Applicable Tax, Title/Tags+ others, etc) so that we can compare the quotes.
Also, please do share the name of the dealership in Virginia where you got this deal. $23k OTD is great price , the best I have received is $24k OTD from "College Park Honda" in MD.

They pretty much backtracked all the cost from the final OTD of 23000. I took Honda extended care for 7 years/100000 miles and paid an additional 1650.
I bought it from Hendrick Honda Woodbridge, VA.
I finalized everything on the phone and even paid $ 500 down by credit card on the phone. They did something called express checkout. I was out in 90 minutes including a final test drive of the vehicle I was getting.
