#5205 of 12329 I brought home new 2007 CR-V LX 2WD today
May 11, 2007 (11:16 pm)
Local dealer had only 5 CR-Vs available. One was a "demo" EX-L with 8,000 miles on it and a cracked windshield. Also, ugly green color (at least to me). Forget that one.
I ended up getting an LX in Borrego Beige Metallic. I traded in my 1997 Ford Explorer 2-Door SPORT with just 64,912 miles on it and got $4,300 for trade-in. The total price including 7.5% tax and destination fee was $21,366. Very happy with LX as I wasn't interested in the extras on the EX (sunroof and CD changer, etc.) and definitely not the EX-L (heated seats, nav system--can't think of when I'd ever use them).
Very pleased with front wheel drive and handling compared to my Ford Explorer. And the better gas mileage will definately be a big plus. I'm a very happy new HONDA owner tonight.
#5206 of 12329 EX-L 2WD CRV 2007 in Houston
May 11, 2007 (11:52 pm)
Just went to several Honda dealers around Houston and Sugar Land. Seems that CRV EX and EXL is VERY difficult to find especially the one with red tango and silver color . Got a 'final' offer from one dealer in the west for the EX-L, i.e. USD 25,447 (with destination charge but no TTL yet). It also comes with wheel locks, tinted window, protecting kit (cargo net & cover, floor mat, splash guard, door guard), plus additional USD 299 for paint sealant (do i need it?) but without the NAVigation system...
Is this considered a GOOD DEAL in Houston? Badly need your advice since I have to make a deal this weekend...THANKS!

Got my EX-L on April 26 from Baytown Honda for 23905 + TTL less trade. That's $250 over invoice. No add on's as is off the boat. Get on-line www.baytownhonda.net fill out the $300 off entry. Good luck.
#5208 of 12329 Leased new CR-V EX-L AWD (no nav) today - how did I do?
May 12, 2007 (5:30 pm)
Leased a new CR-V EX-L AWD (no nav) today. 36-month lease, 12,000 miles/year, 0.0028 money factor. Think I got a decent deal - what do you think? Putting $1500 down (for security deposit, etc.), monthly payments will be $425. Out the door price (including everything - title fee, destination charge, tax, etc.) was $25,894. How does that sound?

thanks a lot vcarreras...just visited the site that you suggested, seems that they start at reasonable price, but just like other dealers in Houston, they dont have red and silver color...what's wrong with CRV supply? are they really on hot sale now? or this is just marketing strategy

Personally, for 25,447 I'd shoot for a 4WD model. Then again, I guess you don't get much snow
I would stay away from the paint sealant... take care of the vehicle and wax it as needed, and the paint will be just fine.
The protection kit is nice but I suspect VERY expensive from the dealer. If you can subtract that out, buy it online, you get the honda parts but without the dealer markup.
#5212 of 12329 less than $1,000 over invoice?
May 14, 2007 (11:35 am)
New to this forum, but went yesterday and was all set to buy a new AWD with navi EX-L and the guy wouldn't budge on going below $1,000 over invoice. He gave me $27,100 plus tax tags, freight, etc.
Havent seen anything here for EX-L with navi. Anyone get for less than $1k over invoice?

I paid about 27,800 including auto mirror and wheel locks. But there was a trade in involved that confused matters a little. These Nav ones are somewhat limited in numbers

the 27,100 included wheel locks, mud guards and i think the mirrors were power.
Your 27,800 was without Tax, title, fees, etc., right?
