Before you bend over and give it up try these dealerships first. you might even get a free meal out of the deal with the options you want on your CRV .
DCH Academy -......OLdbridge nj.
In new york call these dealerships
New Rochelle honda...... high volume dealership
Yonkers Honda. very good dealership and internet mgr.
Bayridge honda............. sometimes they will surprise you with good pricing.
CALL THESE DEALERSHIPS INTERNET DEPT. AND ONLY SPEAK TO THE INTERNET MANAGERS.
take your best price and minus another 750 of that and tell each manager you will buy tomm. if dealership meets your price. Its best to buy on the last days/ last day of the month but it seems you have a time factor so your pricing is limited. dealers have the leverage on you right now.
If you need help let me know. i'll be around tomm.
Nj doc fee's are from 239 to 499
New york doc fee's are capped at only 75 dollars.
Read my posts in the Accord pricing forum to get a idea how to get the best price. Start with these two post # 30550 and 30558 which is a must for you to read when calling dealerships.
Good luck with these slimy dealerships in N.J.
#12623 of 13052 LX AWD NO EXTRAS $24, 495 OTD
Aug 21, 2013 (7:42 pm)
$24,495 OTD all #$%& fees and 7%tax included (if boss allows). Boss sent a mind signal far across the room and magically approved without sales checking with him/them. So this number can change depending how much i appear to want this #$%. Missing arm rest, alloy wheels, glass tint. I'd have to pay extra for those. Is this a craptastic "deal"? I think its about $5-6000 profit on this overprised #$%. About same range as CX5 touring FWD with nicer everything inside and out but i don't care for Mazda much. Friends advise against mazda in general.
PS - can i say "craptastic" in this forum?

Hi Sundevil. Sounds like a good place to look. Are you okay with sharing the dealer's name? I'm on the north shore but would look elsewhere. Thanks.

I got mine at Honda on Grand in Elmhurst. I worked with Jerry and if you submit an online quote request I believe he is the only online rep.
Carr's Honda and Planet Honda were very close in price but were farther from me.
I checked with almost all dealers in the Chicagoland area and the above 3 were the only ones to give a competitive quote without haggling and clearly explained the available incentives. I did talk to sales manager at few other dealerships to get my first choice color but they were not willing to even come close to the deals let alone match.
Good luck with your purchase.
#12628 of 13052 LX AWD no extras no pin stripes
Aug 22, 2013 (7:49 pm)
One of the first things i'll ask the dealer to do is remove pin stripes if i ever get any "deal" on this piece of #$%. 2013 OTD all scam fees included 24,500. 2014 OTD 25,5...4...3... depending how fast i lose interest and walk away. Now i don't want CRV, not that other stealers and cars are any better. I get the impression Honda wants to be the Apple of cars. New motto "sell less for more". Every time i looked at it on the lot i thought about my passengers being uncomfortable and thanked honda for the door lock on the passenger side door. I won't buy EX bc of sun roof and other gimmickry. There's no aftermarket arm rest available that's easy to install. Not possible to install an arm rest in LX because dealer would have to change seats. Plasticky ugly black mirrors, horrible distorted fish eye camera. CD slot. No tint. #$%^&* pin stripes!!! Like its 80's again. Who needs #$% bluetooth when variable speed wipers are so much more useful.
Haggling is the thing of the past. First quote i get if i get up and walk away nobody tries to stop me like yrs ago.
#12629 of 13052 Re: 2013 CRV FWD LX [rufus4554]
Aug 23, 2013 (6:38 am)
ended up getting an LX FWD with no options for 22,500 OTD, or 1,350 below published invoice (22,243). i was shopping for both a FWD LX and a FWD EX, but i could not get the spread between the two lower than 2,500 as dealers started getting tricksy with the math so i went with the LX.
i'm in houston and hit up all of the local dealers for quotes on both LX and EX models. if anyone has any questions, i'd be happy to share quotes and impressions of particular dealers. some things i've noticed among all dealers:
1. these "pro packs" are a scam. familiarize yourself with the cost of OEM splash guards, cargo trays, wheel locks, etc. first so you aren't fooled.
2. the salesperson i ended up buying from even told me that the fabric protectant is a scam.
3. i got two itemized quotes from two salespersons at the same dealer. they were $200 apart. upon further review, i found that one guy included a 199.99 "nitrogen tire warranty". i bought from the guy who didn't offer it. when i was signing papers in the finance office, i ended up signing a document for the nitrogen tire warranty. i said "hey, i didn't ask for this" and the finance guy goes "it looks like they threw it in." if you look at my contract of sale, there's a line item for the "nitrogen tire warranty" - cost was $0.01.

Looking for a 2013 CRV EX-L AWD no RES, no NAV and have the following:
Sales price before tax, tag, title (includes 1,050 discount) - $28,925
Sales price with tax, tag, title - 29,9919.75
Have this deal down to 28,880 including tax, tag, title.
Any opinions? Should I shoot for lower? This is in NC.

Thanks for your post.
It seems your final OTD price has not applied $500 loyaty and $500 Flex cash for 0.9% Honda financing. (Or they were already included in $1350?) I talked to one dealer in Hoston abdout CR-V EX (no options), their internet salesman offerme $24890 OTD. I talked to him about $500 Flex cash for 0.9% finance and $500 Loyalty. He said they were already included.
