Three hundred and fifty dollars for the dealer to process the documentation? Dealers have been quite successful getting buyers to accept this addition to the deal. PT Barnum was correct after all.
Really, when a dealer brings up the doc fee, the best approach is do not pay it. Announce the deal is off and get up a walk away. Most times the dealer will give it up or, at a minimum, offer to reduce it. Most dealers will not let a deal walk over the fake documentation fee.

No person should sign a deal without questioning the doc fee. There is nothing to loose. The dealer will not drop the fee or reduce the fee if it is not questioned. However, if the dealer will not budge the buyer will need to decide what to do. It may be the deal is so good the dealer cannot remove the fee. The only way a buyer can be somewhat sure is to make the dealer believe the deal is off unless the fee is removed.
A dealer will never let a finished deal walk over the doc fee of there is still profit for the dealer. And profit can take many forms, dealer profit is not measured on the price of one vehicle. The price of one vehicle merely contributes to the dealer's profit. There is no way for a buyer to really understand the dealer's true objective.

Aug 08, 2013 (3:53 pm)
I am in the Southern California area. Brian if you are perusing the posts I would very much appreciate your input, or anyone else's who may have some helpful information to provide.
1. Can someone tell me the invoice price for this car (2013 CRV AWD EX-L with NAV)
2. Should incentives be reflected as part of a buyer's down payment in which case presumably they are subject to TTL calculations or should they be off the top in which case TTL is calcualted on the price of the car after incentives have already been deducted?
3. Are incentives still around $1,000 for this car ($500 for loyalty and $500 for financing incentive)?
4. Does anyone have any recommendations for dealerships in my area that would do the deal for $1,500 off invoice and then less $1,000 in incentives.
5. Can someone confirm for me that I can purchase a Honda Care plan from another dealership anywhere in the US that may be willing to give me a better deal than my dealer?
6. What is a good deal for a 7 year / 100,000 mile warranty?
7. What is a good deal for the windshield protection? My windshield is like a magnet for flying debris when I drive.
Thanks very much

Now that the 2014's are on the way to the dealerships, and I'm not really seeing anything that makes me need the 2014 model....what's a good price for a 2013 clearance model - EX-L AWD with Nav? I am located in CT. Invoice is $29,274. My local dealership offered me $28,513 and I feel that they can do way better than that - they have an overstock on 2013 CR-V's right now. I'm trading in a 2009 Audi A4 if that makes a difference (I haven't gotten to negotiating that piece with them yet). I haven't gotten serious and sat down with someone to close the deal because I feel I don't have enough information right now to do so. I know that since it's an end of year model, I shouldn't be paying close to invoice since it has already depreciated an entire year. Help please! Thank you.

1000 to 1700 below invoice price should be the price range for a 2013 CRV. Dealers that have alot of 2013 is where you will make your best deal.
You need to visit 4 or 5 dealerships and work on getting a fair price for your trade in. You may find a great deal on the 2013 crv and a bad price on your Audi.

Labuyer, sorry i missed your post this morning just caught it. The invoice price on your model CRV AWD w/ NAV is.... $28,434, plus 830 dest/charge= $ 29,264. I would set my target price for 1500 below invoice. especially this time of the year and the 2014's comming in next month. You might be able to do better than 1500 below. The more dealerships you get involved the better you will do with pricing.
Listed below are the 3 best dealerships that give the lowest prices on warranties. You could purchase from any dealership.
All incentives and rebates are applied after the agreed Sale price, dealers doc fee charge and your states taxes.
I'm on the East coast here in N.Y. so i cant help you with a dealership.

Am about to wrap up negotiating with several dealers for a CRV FWD LX with no options, and was curious to know how others are faring. The lowest dealer is offering 22,500 OTD (20603.10+830+TTL+150 doc), except the car won't be in until after a couple of weeks.
Do you think I should I lock this up now or try again in a few weeks?

Got a good deal on 2013 CRV-EX AWD Black/Black for $24,800 out-the-door. We had to finance from Honda to get this deal, but we got 0.9% APR. This price includes $500 conquest and $500 FlexCash. We bought it from Pohankas Honda, MD and had a great buying experience with no pushy add-ons forced on us either.
