Can folks please NOT post their OTD price but rather the actual price of the car - any incentives/breaks they received. It's pointless to post OTD prices - tax is different in every state, and in my state, there is no tax at all, so it becomes difficult to figure out what you're actually paying sometimes.
That said, can somebody give ballpark of target prices? I'm looking specifically at EX-L 2013's. What I can glean from this thread is that invoice - $1000 to $1500, minus incentives, most commonly $500 conquest/loyalty and $500 to finance with Honda. Does that sound right?

Target price 1000 to 1500 below invoice price depending on your area and supply and demand factor. plus any incentives that apply to you. then add sales tax, dmv charge, and doc fee for your otd pricing.
Dest/ Charge of $830 is added to the invoice price. then minus your target price off that. this number is what your Target price to buy is at every dealership you contact by phone / email or visit..

See if this coul help anyone, I just got this vehicle for 24,500$ before any fees, had to pay about 2,000$ more for destination , tax, tag and proc fees.
Also add a Roof Rails, Cross bars and Tailgate Spoiler, and my new CR-V looks great.
For a 2013 model I did find an offert for 23,000$ before fees. Fairfax Honda.

Planet H.....$26,9k OTD dealer's offer. Of all stealers this one is the worst. I've had numbers in upper $25, $26,100 was the highest but so far all the numbers are hyperinflated to account for "incentives". This is true for all brands, not just Honda. I've had similar experience at Subaru and Mazda has fewer BS fees but higher starting price. Then after you've negotiated for hours, days, weeks, tired, exhausted you end up paying a lot more than the car is worth. Its worth about $19,000 i was going for ~$23,000 +/- OTD. Some of the Planet's BS fees:
$595 AP-Pack - pin stripes + door edge guard package. LOL
$339 DMV fee. Transferring old plates is $159. This number seems standard bc mazda told me same
$399 doc fee. Excessive. Dealer needs to sell cars and do paperwork anyway. Scam!
$349 window etching. more LOL
7.50 NJ tire fee. This is new to me since i haven't shopped for a new car in 10 yrs
$10 online processing fee. New to me. Most likely BS.
VIP down rt22 gave me $26,1+ OTD number. One of the fees was $900 tire lock package. Made me laugh. I think i have "MORON" written on my forehead. I think all stealers see every buyer as a moron.
PS - "end of month/holiday" is a hype to get us in the showroom. Dealerships seemed less busy than any other day of the month. I was told on the phone and email prices are very aggressive and now is the time for "amazing deals". I can't stop laughing at these numbers and scamming tactics. Ended up with worse numbers than before.

I purchased a 2013 Honda CrV EX. I test drove this car during the day. If you are considering purchasing this car I would suggest that you test drive it at night also. Very poor exterior lighting so much so that when it is on Auto (the lights automatically come on) the brights come on 9 out of 10 times and I am not driving in a rural area. You can imagine how other drivers like this but truthfully the lights are not shining at the pavement they are shining upwards so I need the brights on in order to be able to see. I have never ever had this problem before and would never have thought to test drive a car at night. I am extremely sorry that I purchased this car as the dealer is no help at all. All I am suggesting is that you test drive this car at night without the brights on and see if this works for you. A very expensive mistake on my part!.

We just bought the above car. The breakdown was:
$22,255.37 Price of Vehicle (includes destination)
$910.17 Virginia Tax (4%)
$26.71 Dealer Business Tax
$10.00 On-line System Filing Fee
$499.00 Processing Fee
$48.75 Tag, Title, Registration
-$1,000 Incentives (financed through Honda for 0.9%)
$22,750 Out the Door Price
I emailed a lot of dealers and asked for the out the door price. Most would not give it to me. Of the ones who did, this was the second best price. One in Maryland was slightly cheaper (I think it was less than $100 cheaper) but I did not totally trust him since he gave me the price on the phone and would not email me the information even when I asked for it. This would have been a significant drive for me and I did not want to go all the way over there for a bait and switch. Plus they did not have my first color choice which I got at this dealer. The Maryland dealer said I would have to pay $500 for them to find me my first color choice. Most of the dealers that even gave me an out the door price were much higher than we paid.
This was pretty much a basic model. My husband did insist on the AWD. It did come with mud flaps and door guards.
Hope this helps someone. I live in Northern Virginia and this was Hendrick of Woodbridge.
