Just to give everyone an update. We purchased the CRV EXL w/Navi last night from Castle Honda in Chicago. Really feel like we got a great deal with our Cash for Clunker. Traded in a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport for the fully loaded CRV EXL. We negotiated the price of the EXL down to $26,000 off of the sticker $29,600 before the C4C trade in. We did business w/Mike A via the internet and feel we got a great price compared to other internet offers from area Chicago dealers. lt might be hard finding a '09 CRV EXL/navi in Chicago as we found very few in the color we wanted.

Congrats! An amazing deal before C4Cs.
The best offer we got was $27,085 including destination, before C4C and have to wait for it to arrive in our desired color combination. Any dealers with a black/black EX-L w/ Navi in CT/NY won't touch it.
If I had $26K before C4C I'd jump on it in an instant. Did they add any junk/prep/ fees?

If you happen to have an American Express card, they have an auto buying program that will save you some bucks. When I log in and price an '09 CR-V EX with 4WD, it comes up with a price of $23,334. If you don't have an AMEX card, try www.zag.com. Hope this helps. Even with that price, these CR-Vs are very scarce right now. I am in south Georgia and my dealer is having a hard time finding what I need.

They just added the standard $700 destination charge and a few hundred for doc and local fees. Nothing crazy plus the local sales tax of 7.25%. I did find one other dealer in Chicago that had a similar offer via the internet, but the only color they had was a silver/grey. We ended up with a black/black. All the other offers I received from Chicagoland dealers were around $27,000-$27,500 before dest & fees. Keep hunting and you will get a deal around $26,000 for the EXL/navi in the color you want. I tried to get the other dealers lower, but the common reply to me was that the EXL/navi are becoming scarce and they usually sell as soon as they hit the lot. So if you find one you better jump on it. I even had to go in last Friday and place a $500 deposit on it so they wouldn't sell it over the weekend. I had to wait till Mon when my wife flew back into town to sign all the paperwork. FYI-also got Honda finance to offer 4% financing for 60 mo.

#8996 of 13048 civic or crv
Aug 19, 2009 (4:20 pm)
looks like civic is more expensive than CRV. CRV costs about 4000 more but offers lots more -- 4wd, bigger engine, more sturdier, bigger body
civic lxs 16500 incl dest
crv lx 4wd 20500 incl dest
what do u all think?

Depends on what you want. Wife drives 2006 Civic. Gets 40+mpg on trips.
Car is physically too low for my old arthritic bones.
Just bought a 2009 CRV LX 2WD, with clunker trade. Cost me $18,900 out the door, from Hall Honda, in Virginia Beach Can get in and out of it easily. Provides me the room I need for my lifestyle. Don't expect to get anywhere near the Civic gas mileage.
#8998 of 13048 cash for clunkers

cash for clunkers is not a permanent program. It will end before the end of the year, and the dealers will go back to begging for customers. Patience is a virtue.
