It is important to understand dealers make a profit off financing, dealer reserve. There are times when a dealer will sell a vehicle for less if they believe they will make a profit on financing.
Astute buyers can use this to their advantage. If the dealer offers financing at or below the rate you can obtain elsewhere, finance with the dealer with the lower selling price.
Even if you are paying cash. If you can save $500 on the sales price letting the dealer finance, better to finance with the dealer. You can always pay the loan within the next week and not have to pay much interest.

Looking to buy CR-V EX-L FWD in Houston area over the next couple of weeks. Would appreciate any comments on prices paid in the area and experiences with various dealers.
Thanks to all for any help...

CR-V LX 2WD
Received an offer of $21343 through TrueCar.
$23675 out the door with alarm thrown in at the last minute to seal the deal because the color available on the lot was not our top choice. No back and forth. Overall a fairly pleasant experience. Got 0.9% APR as well.

CR-V EX AWD
Got an offer of $23,715 (price including $830 destination)through USAA auto insurance from spreen honda in Loma Linda, CA (southern Cali)
I was also able to get a San diego dealer here in San Diego to match it, they (The San Diego dealer) say they'll also through in 10% Off of any repair. Note the USAA price automatically includes the destination charge of $830. Also there are supposedly no other hidden cost (besides the normal tax and license). I bought a civic from Spreen 3 years ago and had a top notch experience but the salesman that I dealt with no longer works there. So I'm still debating on the dealer but I plan to make a choice in a day or 2. Side note I asked a mazda dealer to match this price on an 2014 mazda CX-5, AWD touring. He couldn't go a dollar below invoice. Don't think I would've gotten the cx-5 anyway due to its lack of cargo space but just a little FYI.
#12331 of 13048 Leasing 2013 CRV EX-L
May 26, 2013 (9:09 pm)
Looking to lease a 2013 CRV EX-L. First went to a dealer that kept me 2 hours and paraded 5 different sales guys into/out of room ... classic run around.
Then went to TrueCar and got quote for $25,6xx which would be a $0 down, $300/mo lease. Going tomorrow. So, if:
Cap Cost is $25,6xx
Residual at 61% MSRP ($17,308) -- adjusting down from 64% b/c I want 15k mi/yr.
Money factor of .00145, as read in these forums.
Lease is 35 months.
What should I pay out of pocket for Tax, Title & Registration -- looks like some people are getting those covered by the dealer. Is that using incentives like Flex Cash and Loyalty?
Thanks for the help!

Hi Charles Guy!
Well you're right, they told me $0 down and $300/mo on the phone, but when I went in, the sales manager couldn't make that work for the price they quoted me ($25,6xx). He said the internet manager must have been quoting an EX model. To their credit, they held to the TrueCar price. But took some money out by devaluing my trade in at (-$731 negative equity). In the end, it was $329/month for 36 months, and I had to put down $2000 for T/T/L. Tax here is 9%. I'm in Norcal. They had no flex cash left, but I did "remind them" of the loyalty bonus. Also found they were not calculating the residual based on MSRP. All kinds of tricks they try to pull. What do you think about that deal?

P.S. That monthly payment ($329) includes tax. Only things where I think I got screwed:
-- He would only give me .59 residual (due to me wanting 15,000 miles instead of 12,000
-- I think my car was worth $1200 or so to them, that's what another dealership was going to make. He said they had to pay for body work to rear bumper and to replace two tires. I'm thinking they get that stuff free, right?
Regardless, I learned a TON from this forum, the lease calculator here, the keasing spreadsheet I downloaded based on a recommendation here, and the Weymouth calculator.

Hi I just bought a new CRV EXL AWD on Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
Seem like a good deal. This is for the car only, no taxes, titles or dealer add-on's:
Your Desired Vehicle Request:
2013 Honda CR-V EXL AWD MSRP $29,625
Internet e-Price is $26,367**.
An administrative fee of $199 will be applied to the final selling price (this is standard in the industry and all dealerships charge this fee).
We have no hidden fees!
*With approved credit. Not all buyers will qualify. **The price shown does not reflect any upgrades or options that may have been added to the vehicle. The destination charge is included in the price quote.
Honda is also offering an extra $500 off the above price if you currently have one of the following vehicles, 2003 or newer, in your household: Honda, Acura, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Ford, Chevy, Subaru, Jeep, Kia, VW, or Saturn!
So I paid $25867 out the door with .09% for 48 Months.
