#12336 of 13098 Price Paid CRV EXL AWD 2013
May 30, 2013 (6:18 pm)
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.

An administrative fee is not standard in the industry and not all dealers charge such a fee. This is simply an increase to the selling price which the dealer is attempting a bit of deception by calling it a fee. The word fee is intended to give it a bit of authority. Many people associate the word fee with a legal cost.
The fact is the dealer must include the fee on all contracts or be subject to discrimination. However, that does not mean all buyers actually pay the fee.
For example, I just bought a new vehicle and the dealer hit me with a $500 fee. I told them I would only buy the vehicle if they reduced the price by $500 to compensate for the fee.
Really, how many dealers will let a deal walk over such fees. Interestingly, another buyer was sitting at the next table and also achieved a price reduction to compensate for the fee.

#12343 of 13098 2013 CRV EX (AWD)? Price?
Jun 07, 2013 (7:57 am)
I am looking to buy my wife a CRV EX in Northeast Ohio within the next month or so. She is interested in the AWD because she wanted a Subaru. What is a good OTD price before tax? Also is the CRV’s AWD recommended over the 2WD. We do have a fair amount of inclement weather in this area?

Just for reference, I purchased a 2012 CR-V EX AWD back in August of 2012.
My OTD price with taxes was $27,200.00. I could have gotten it for $150 less at another dealership somewhat close to home but I chose to purchase from dealership in area of workplace in Bethesda, MD (expensive area to rent and buy homes). Which was the same dealership the 1995 FWD Accord, which I still drive primarily, was purchased. After adding the fabric protectant and paint protectant and addl warranty to the CR-V price, I ended up paying $28,600. I'm not into yelling and screaming or sleeping on their showroom floor but I have to admit that's what would have had to happen in order to get out if there without purchasing extras, so I caved in to their sales tactics. They weren't giving me the keys until I bought something to add to the OTD price. I do perfectly okay with my FWD Accord in the DC MD area even with the ice storms. I just kept the gears in 2nd or even 1st on one occasion going up a steep hill with a small pickup truck sliding toward me from ahead. I was able to stay out of his way and slowly inch up the icy hill. So, as long as you don't try to be superman and do your best to stay off the roads in those conditions anyway, a FWD is fine but I happen to work for 'Type A workaholics with no common sense. Also, I don't know if the FWD CR-V has the backup camera which I absolutely love on the AWD EX CR-V and I feel is worth the money I paid in 'extras'. Do your best to not give in to the fabric protection and added warranty, my thoughts are if it's a Honda why would I need any other warranty? Those cars roll no matter what hits them or happens. (At least in my experience). None of the ones I had left me stranded, they all got me home when there was no way possible that they should have. My former VW, couldn't touch my Honda (other than I was completely unharmed in an accident). Parts are too expensive for an insurance company to want to repair if in an accident, they rather declare it's 'totaled' than repair and risk other issues later. Hondas are very 'insurance friendly'.
#12345 of 13098 CRV EXL OTD $27K plus DMV fee

I have an offer for $27k for CRV EXL OTD, but plus DMV fees. I haven't gone in to sign paperwork yet and am afraid they will pester me to buy a bunch of stuff. Any ideas for how to avoid that? I'm a single mom and don't have the time or money to deal with haggling any further. I got my quote via email.
