If you live in Florida or California, you must purchase the extended warranty from the dealership as the States Law requires. I have had to do this in my state of Florida. Cost more as well and those that live in other states are lucky to have options that cost half as much....
The 2002 thru 2006 have had some major issues with the CR-V air conditioner and some wish they had the extended warranty. Read up on this issue in this forum
Brand new full make over ( Not Mild mid year changes ) honda or any other vehicle, the dealerships charge MSRP if not more depending on the model. Mid year cars normally do not and you can dicker with the manager. Start with Invoice, then go up from there bit by bit ( Few hundered only ) until both you and the dealership agree. Too much, walk out.
We here in Florida have to pay a $599 dealer fee, also state law. Other states have fee's as well but are less then Florida.
My dealer has gotten the word that two LX models are now in the build stage, so late Oct 2009 the CR-V's should be arriving.

The $599 dealer fee is not Florida state law...

The law probably CAPS the fee the dealer CAN charge at $599.

I am on the complete opposite side of the country, Long Island, NY.
They must be pushing the new CRV across the country if we're not getting tem until six weeks after you.
I am still going back and forth between a new CRV and a used 4Runner or Pilot. Size and safety vs. the new car warranty. Thankfully, I am in no rush.
Someone was posting to this forum a week or two ago, right around the time C4C ended. He was from the Portland area and could not find any, or very few, CRVs. Maybe they sent the 2010s there first because inventory was depleted.
We still have some '09s left here, but the amount is dropping quickly. I spoke to my dealer a week ago or so and she was still expecting another 6-8 '09s to come in. I'm sure they were comng, as she knew colors and everything.
Opal-Sage sounds depressing!

I am just curious, is that warranty from Honda themselves, or is it from a warranty company?
$1000 or less seems to be right. People that complain on dealerrater and Edmunds that they were ripped off usually paid $1500-2000, and sometimes then wrapped that into the financing, so in reality they were paying interest on that amount too. Some Honda owner websites mention warranty costs in the "scondary market" as around $900 being a fair price.

You are right and I was wrong and did not know this....
"Florida law currently has some regulation on dealer fees.
The amount of the fee must be printed on the buyer's order, next to the real fees, such as sales tax and licenses. Next to the dealer fee must be printed, "these charges represent costs and profit to dealer."
This statement is misleading because it says costs and profits.
Obviously, when the dealer charges you money to cover some of his expenses, you are increasing his profits. The statement should be, "these charges represent profit for the dealer," period."

When I bought my Sienna the salesman was a real gentleman. We negotiated $1000 off MSRP, which was a good deal at the time as it was a new model year and discounts were usually in the $500 range.
When we balked at the $349 documentation fee, he first said it was a rquirement and the dealership wouldn't budge on it.
He then took it upon himself to go talk to the boss and he was able to reduce the van by another $349, which offset the doc. fee.
It was a class act by a class guy. Too bad I can't find that guy now when I'm in the market again.
