#12696 of 13109 Honda 2013 CrV
Aug 31, 2013 (8:13 am)
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.
#12698 of 13109 2014 EX-L Fwd Houston
Aug 31, 2013 (12:39 pm)
Just signed the papers on a 2014 silver ex-l fwd in houston for $25995 + destination. I was originally considering a 2013 for $24376 + destination and needing to finance with Honda. I asked the 2013 dealer to match or beat the other price. He said that 25995 was a price for a 2013 and he'd be happy to sell a 2013 for 25995. It was a no brainer as the 2013 dealer offered a 2014 for 26610 + destination. I saw the 2014 for $25995 only had 2 miles on it with plastic still on everything including the wheels. Hope this helps.

MMO, was that price after incentives? If $500+500, so basically $26995 + destination + title etc?

Wallbobbyc, I don't believer there are any incentives on the 2014. That was just the straight up price. So it came out to $25995+ destination + tt&l.
#12701 of 13109 Used 12 CRV EXL - AWD for 21k OTD?

#12702 of 13109 2013 CR-V EX-L AWD in Nebraska

Just bought a 2013 EX-L AWD (*no* nav or rear entertainment)
Price of vehicle: $27,661 (includes destination charge of $863)
Less loyalty incentive: -$500
Less flex cash: -$500
Administrative fee: $199
Title and Lien recording fee: $17
Final cost: $26,877
So this is basically $1860 under invoice+destination charge, when you factor in the incentives. Or $1000 under invoice not considering the destination charge.
This doesn't include sales tax or registration or any of that.
They tried to charge me $460 for mud flaps and door guards, which they said they "put on all their vehicles, it's standard". I said that was nice, but they could remove them because I wasn't going to pay for them. They backed down after the second or third time I said it and I got them free. Dumb.
The first dealership I tried wouldn't budge from 28,100, and that didn't include the destination charge and whatever other BS they were going to try to add on, so that was a waste of time.

Nice! I had the same experience. I got a quote over email for a price, and showed it to the dealer that is closest to me and they still wouldn't budge. Ok, I can drive 45 minutes for $1200.
#12704 of 13109 2014 CR-V LX AWD no extras NJ
Aug 31, 2013 (7:03 pm)
vehicle selling price $23,571
sales tax 7% $1649.97
NJ tire tax fee $7.50
doc fee $359.00
reg/title $69.50 (transferred old plates and old reg was still active if it makes any difference)
total OTD/Delivered $25,657
No incentives on 2014, no 0.9% financing, no loyalty $500. Only on 2013. I paid $5,657 more than this car is really worth. Keep in mind value for the money no matter what sales tell you. LX isn't worth that much.
"extras" i received for "free": no stupid ugly pin stripes, "protection package" includes free mud guards, rubber mats and rear cargo area lining. Cheap soft quality rubber. I can get better quality from walmart.
The "package" i would prefer is wheel locks and color matched door edge guard. Manager i dealt with went to check with himself if he could do this "deal" several times and returned saying his boss manager said i have to pay $340 extra for the "package". At first he said he'd "work with me" on the package because its the last day and they needed to sell many cars. They "lose" on the price but make up for it by volume. Doesn't matter if i get invoice price. "Next _____ will pay $7000 over..." so i started walking and then the manager went to check with himself again. I asked why he needed to check with the manager if he's the manager. "That's right. I don't need to check with anybody. I'll give you the package for 'free'" LOL
I didn't get a good deal or a good car.

> I didn't get a good deal or a good car.
Why did you buy it then? I've read a bunch of your posts and you seem super pissed off that you have to buy this car. Is your spouse making you buy it? Bizarre.
