#12426 of 13099 2013 EX-L AWD without Navi or RES Chicago area
Jul 05, 2013 (6:42 pm)
Wife and I just came home from Honda of Lisle with our new CR-V
Only add ons were splash guards and door guards. Said we did not want them, and dealer threw them in. Valued at $700 but another dealer said they are worth a little over $350.
8,000 for trade in
No down payment
1300 in dealer cash
Got 60 months .9%
We recommend anyone stopping in to see Kabir. Great group over there. No BS, we did our homework, they saw that and did not play the whoa is me card when we asked for more on our trade. Gave us best price in area by $200 for the OTD price.

i ended up at bayridge.
they gave me the 26,500 including dest charge etc. (27,750- 1250 incentives even though i didnt really qualify for the additional 500 in "conquest")
Gene at the dealership made it happen.
I'd been there before and walked out-- and even the last time there was a sales manager who tried to insert a "destination charge" which really ticked me off.
But Gene won me over and i figured that since Boston Honda in Everett MA didnt want to give me the deal (around 25,500) they offered someone else in this forum (because, they said, i didnt live in the area and therefore wouldnt use them for service) bay ridge was my best bet. New Rochelle and Atlantic Honda (in long island) would have given me similar deals-- but bayridge got my business this time!
That being said, I would only deal with Gene-- not any of the other salesmen.
I DID capitulate to the 7 year extended warranty (bumper to bumper) that the finance guy hawked because:
a) it brought my interest rate down 3 percentage points
b) i'm a girl, and mechanics see me coming a mile away. (this is an unfortunate but documented fact: women are ripped off in auto shops)
so, i figured it would give me peace of mind for 7 years (an additonal 4 past the standard 3 yrs) and give me time to actually study and learn about cars (womenautoknow.com) so that i'm better suited to be a strong, knowledgeable and informed advocate in the auto shop!
#12429 of 13099 CRV EX AWD - Are prices going Up?
Jul 06, 2013 (7:45 pm)
Last week (end of June), I called Honda of Ownings Mill, MD (based on good experience that others (from this thread) had and got decent quotes. I decided to make the actual purchase in July in hopes of a better price (since, I was in no rush). However, the quotes I received today when I visited the dealership were way up there !
They stated that that Flex Cash and dealership hold-backs were not available in July and the best they can do (Out-The-Door):
CRV LX AWD: $ 25,700 (includes 200 processing, 300 Title/Tags/Registration, and 6% MD tax)
CRV EX AWD: $ 27,500 (includes 200 processing, 300 Title/Tags/Registration, and 6% MD tax)
Has anyone heard similar or were they trying to pull a fast one on me (since, they knew I brought the check-book to make the deal)? These prices are about $1500 more then they quoted over the phone.

Bayridge is either hit or miss with there pricing. I almost bought my Accord from them in Feb but they wanted me to finance most of the car thru them. I just wanted cash and carry so i went elsewhere.

Do you think i should have stood my ground with regard to the extended warranty? Is it a waste of money?

Me personally i think its a waste of money. Your buying a honda for build / quality. But if it gives you piece of mind you could get a 7yr extended for $1100 dollars from Bernardi or Sacchi honda.
I keep cars no longer than 5 yrs and then i upgrade so warranty is not important to me. i have bought 5 new honda's over the years for my family and only one had a transmission problem that was covered.

Congratulations on your new CRV!
I am the one who bought CRV EX-L AWD at Boston for 25000 after 1250 incentives (26250-1250). Please note that 25000 is before dealer documentation fee and TTL. The dealer's documentation fee is 300 dollars and therefore what I pay is 25000 + 300 documentation fee + 1640 tax + 130 title and registration = 27070. Did you clarify with them about the documentation fee? Anyway, enjoy you new CRV.
Have you considered RAV4? I think it is also a good choice.

#12435 of 13099 THE #1 con men at Bay Ridge, Brooklyn honda
Jul 08, 2013 (6:44 pm)
A recent post on this site suggested dealing with Gene and Bay Ridge Honda, Brooklyn, NY. So I went out to see them with that post's deal for a CR-V EXL AWD, (expecting to add the costs for navigation), but they wouldn't match that price (plus the navi). The excuse? That person had financed, I wanted to pay cash. So I left. However, they called me back the following day (today) on three occasions to try to entice me to return. I spent the day calling alternative dealerships that were farther from my home and ultimately presented "Philip" at Bay Ridge with the last best offer. He said - "after talking to his manager" that they would match the best offer I received (still $200 more than the Edmunds recent post). Just before making the 30-minute drive a second time, I called Philip and asked him to verify 100% the price and that there would be only two additional charges (a) tax, and (b) DMV, and nothing else, no destination fee, nothing. He said 'absolutely, for sure.' He also asked me to be there before a specific time. I made the drive, arriving 15 minutes in advance. Philip was "not available." But lo-and-behold his boss was. Here is what the XL!#$#!! said:
(a) "there are two different people registered under your name in our system"
oops - I have a very unusual last name and have never called/dealt with them before;
(b) "you had told Philip you were interested in a two-wheel drive"
uh, my contact with them started with a written internet inquiry saying 4WD in black and white and no other vehicle was ever mentioned;
(c) "you don't understand my situation and how much money I will be losing..."
(d) "the destination fee will have to be added back in"
(e) "Philip is permanently unavailable, in the back, not answering his text messages, gone for the day."
I left. And I suggest that anyone who steps foot in Bay Ridge Honda has got to be stark raving mad.
