#6931 of 13102 Just Bought a New CRV EX-L AWD Today
Mar 25, 2008 (3:57 pm)
After a marathon day of negotiations, I finally bought my CRV EX-L a few hours ago here on Long Island. No one is giving any kind of discount on these in this area. I ended up paying $26,250 for the car with the roof rack, mud guards and wheel locks (tax and tags not included). I ended up going to 3 dealers (and 1 toyota dealer) and two were in the ball park of the selling number I mentioned. One of the dealers, the largest one in the Northeast, Huntington Honda really blew me away, I was shocked at their tactics. We had purchaed a 1999 Odyssey there and they gave us a great price so we decided to give them another try to see if they'd match our offer (I told them the offer was for 26K) even though we live about 30 miles from them. They asked us if we would take it at $25,800 we said "absolutely". So he goes over to the manager and he comes back with a price of $28, 411!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked. I asked if it had some gold bars in the trunk...... Needless to say we walked out.
The one Toyota dealer we went to we looked at a Rav4 Limited, same as the CRV EX-L. The price he quoted us was great, low 25's but then he added in over $1000 in fees like advertising, holdback, financing fee (a fee to recoup their deals at 0% on other cars!!!), etc,
Glad it's over. I pick it up next week as it's in transit. All the CRV's in this area are coming from Japan.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I generally consider myself to be technically savvy, but I missed the mark on this one. I guess it was too simple.
Also, I don't have my vehicle yet so I went to a local Honda dealer to today to actually examine the input port in the vehicle. I thought is was a bigger opening, similar in size to the cigarette lighter.
Now I know what I'll need for when I go to get the vehicle.
Thanks again, Trin

Ended up buying it at Babylon Honda. I think if you didn't want the accessories I got (mug guards, wheel locks and roof rack) you'd could get it for 26K or slightly under. Baron in Patchogue also gave me a really good price, slightly above Babylon, but we were so exhausted we just went with the deal from Babylon even thought they're about 25 miles from where I live. I think the dealers to stay away form are Huntington and Nardy, both demanded much more than the smaller dealers.

Paid $22091 or $23,577 out the door, with taxes and fees for a 08 EX two wheel drive,I think we did well eh?
now we wait 3 weeks for the car
They have a 4WD EX in stock now that they would like to apply to this months figures for a extra $700 more,(list was $1200 I think). dunno if it is really worth it,we get some snow in Ohio,I was only thinking about when we sell if a 2WD is more difficult to move down the road

I'm from CA but live in WA now where we have a whopping 9.2% sales tax on all cars new and used. We have no state income tax and they just get it in other ways.
You can't avoid paying sales tax.
#6937 of 13102 Need Advice on Pricing in DC area
Mar 26, 2008 (4:49 pm)
I want to buy a 2wd EX with cloth. I test drove one at Criswell in MD but was not ready to talk price. Does anyone have any advice or experience from recent dealing in DC suburbs? Could I get an EX 2WD for 21,500? I am a newbie and want to save money. I have read lots of posts here but seems you all are buying AWD or EX-L. Any advice on making a deal will be appreciated.

I have a pretty good price on a 2wd EX for $22,091 without tax....now this INCLUDES all fees its important to qualify this as fees can be another thousand dollars on top.
I think this is a pretty good price,quite possibly the best 2WD price on here,good luck.

Did you buy one at that price or are you a dealer?
#6940 of 13102 Price for Demo vehicles
Mar 27, 2008 (4:05 am)
Does anyone have a feel for what dealers will knock off the price for a demo vehicle with 100-200 miles? How about one with up to 1000 miles?
