#12344 of 13032 Re: 2013 CRV EX (AWD)? Price? [glv2]
Jun 07, 2013 (8:45 am)
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'.

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.

Bring in email quote and make dealership honor there price or walk out.
Say no to anything else in back office.. NO NO NO never worth buying
People buy hondas for Build ,Quality, and Resale value. Dont throw away your money on warranties and all that B.S. sold in back offices.

Yes, I am not going to buy any other warranties, etc. I don't want any extras at all. I'm just afraid they are going to get me in there and not give me the keys and I'll have a whining miserable 2 year old and a lot of wasted time. I am dreading it.
Oh thank you too, for your feedback!

#12350 of 13032 EX-L with Navi quote
Jun 10, 2013 (8:48 am)
Just received a quote from a nearby dealer for OTD pricing of $28,996 for EX-L with Navi. I know we should be discussing prices of car + destination + fees but this sales rep sent an OTD unsolicited. It seemed to me too good to be real but when I questioned him he said he is giving me $750 flex cash. He listed the price as $27,600 + f+t&t+a+p and came up as $28,996 OTD after the flex cash. Taxes in Maryland are 6% and DMV costs are $344. Any thoughts on this deal?

A good way to quickly quiet the F&I person regarding their extended push to get you to buy an extended warranty or service contract is to say you only intend to keep the vehicle for three years, essentially the length of the OEM actual warranty. That calms the wind of their sales pitch and causes them to become somewhat speechless. Works every time.

I bought a new CRV EX AWD about 3 weeks ago at Duncan's Hokie Honda in Christiansburg, VA. I live in Roanoke and it was worth the drive. They had some dealer cash thing or something but I got the car for $23,800. They gave me $1,800 for my 2001 Toyota Corolla and I put $2,000 down. After taxes, fees, etc... I financed about $20,600 for 60 months at 0.9%. I think I got a great deal judging from everything I've seen online.
#12353 of 13032 2013 Honda CRV EX AWD, Metro Atlanta
Jun 12, 2013 (1:39 pm)
I called about 5 Honda dealerships in metro Atlanta. I asked specifically for the drive out price -- tax, dealer, tag, title, registration, et al included. I wanted the final price. I was given quotes between $27,000 and $28,000.
For reference, in Georgia the mandatory fees for the CRV EX AWD are:
State Fee $3
Electronic Filing $79
All dealerships seemed to have non negotiable administrative fees between $500 and $700. That cost is pure padded profit for them.
Gwinnett Honda was difficult to get a hold of. I was not able to talk to someone about this.
Voyles Honda quoted $27,615.81 drive out. Price and destination is $25,212.68 of that amount. $598 for dealer fee.
AutoNation quoted $27,055.13 drive out. Price and destination is $24,630. $699 for dealer fee. No electronic filing fee?
Nalley Honda quoted $26,978 drive out, provided that I finance. I was not given the price or dealer fees.
Curry Honda said they beat the lowest so I went with them. After going through credit approval, paperwork, and such, the drive out price was $27,079.13, which was higher than both Nalley and AutoNation. I couldn't get the price lowered. As my spouse and I were more tired than miffed, we just paid it. After all, it was $101.13 more than the lowest at 0.9% over 60 months. Come to think about it, our payment is $1.73/month higher.
No matter what, we got a good deal and a fair price, around invoice.
Price plus destination = $24,687
Price, destination, dealer fee = $25,274
Total drive out cost = $27, 079.13
