I made a mistake on your deal and pricing. The $ 1464 below price was estimated on a CRV, EXL, awd, w/ nav. Not the 2WD
If your numbers are correct for the same CRV but with 2wd here is your numbers on the deal.
Invoice w dest/charge=.............28,094
this is a terrible deal at 294 below invoice price. walk away from this deal. you could do much better. Click on my user name and read my prior posts on How and when to buy. This will help you get a better deal. Read my posts in the Accord prices paid forum you will learn alot in no time on buying/ tips.
At this time of the year your target price to buy should be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price plus any incentives and rebates that apply to you.
Until dealers have alot of 2014 CRV's on there lots there wont be much change in pricing.
You should always ask each dealership when your negotiating pricing to disclose his doc fee' charge. I always add the doc fee charge to my asking price to buy making that fee a wash on the bill of sale. Unless dealer agree's to remove that fee. Almost all honda dealerships wont remove that fee.

Your target price to buy any model should be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price plus any incentives and rebates that apply to you. Your area plus supply and demand will play a big part on pricing. Until these dealerships have alot of 2014's on there lots pricing will remain between above numbers. If you could find dealerships with 15 or more lx models thats where you will get your best deal. Dealers with limited lx models on there lot might not be willing to sell as cheap.
End of Oct thru Dec is when you will find your best deals on 2013 CRV's. The only problem is model and choice of color might not be what you want.

Was this AWD or FWD? I'm not sure what you mean by "AT". I'm trying to negotiate for 2013 CR-V LX AWD in New Jersey. Thanks and hope you enjoy the new car.

Regarding the doc fee, it is NOT a fee! It is price, additional profit for the dealer and additional cost for you. Dealers add this fee to give the illusion of a lower price. Dealers use the word fee to give the illusion of legality
However, the fee will need to be shown on the paperwork. If not the dealer runs the risk of being sued for discrimination.
That does not mean you have to actually pay it. Simply reduce the price by the fee amount.
It is amazing how so many people seem to think these fees are legitimate. The reality is these fees are just one more game dealers employ to deceive customers.
The price you pay includes all dealer costs plus profit. The only fees you should pay over price are those required by the Government, like sales tax. After all the dealer does not attempt to charge extra for other costs like electricity. Why should you pay extra for the limited labor costs associated with preparing documents which are mostly done by computer during the quality time you spend in the F&I office?

First time I remember seeing a doc fee was about 25 years ago. I did not pay it then and I have not paid a doc fee since.
Just tell the dealer you will not pay a separate doc fee. Ask the dealer to reduce the negotiated price or increase the agree upon trade value. If the dealer balks, just say thank you and begin to walk away.
Most dealers will not let a solid deal walk over the doc fee. There is never anything to loose letting the dealer think a deal is walking.

How much are you getting for the car out of the dealer?
I am looking for the same model

Yes. go to College Hills honda parts and accessories for invoice pricing on your options. Wheel locks and splash guards you could buy both for $100 trunk tray $90 window tint inexpensive. i could get all for windows tinted for $125. Most dealers will throw in wheel locks and splash guards at no extra cost. Dealer pays a fraction of the cost listed for those items.
If that deal you posted is a 2wd model walk away. You need to be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price at this time of the year. plus any incentives that apply to you.

Brian, thx for all your great advice! I'm wondering how much you could expect to save by waiting a month or two. If your range is 1000-1600 below invoice now, what could it be later? I don't need a new car now, I just want one... But I'm willing to wait if it saves me a few thousand bucks (more beer!).
