In June we finally bought our CR-V after shopping since April. Got a 2009 CR-V EX 4WD with no add-ons except wheel locks. The dealer I bought it from had to do a dealer trade to get the color we wanted (Green Tea), and the other dealer had already put the wheel locks on, so they didn't bother taking them off and didn't charge us for them. I negotiated a price of $22,700 + TTL with them, plus $200 for them to do the dealer trade. So, the final total was $22,900 + TTL. Flew out of state to do the deal and when I got there they tried to to tack on a $399 dealer doc fee. They said every car must have this fee. Luckily I had secured the deal with them in writing via email and showed them that they agreed to add no other fees on it. So, they adjusted the price to $22,501 and applied the fee. Fine with me. Financed at 5.99% over 60 months through Honda Financial.
Just wanted to add my story here since these stories really helped me shop for a true good price. While this wasn't the best price on this forum, I felt that we really got a good deal and the dealer didn't make much off us at all.

russ0195: sounds like i'm in the right ballpark. The $24000 (including destination) is for a blue 2010 EX 4WD not including tax, title, registration. thanks for sharing.

It's hard to get a handle on the pricing of a 2010 CR-V at the moment. There are very few around and very few have been sold. I went back and did some comparisons of trade ins for a few years and it seems that there is about $1,200 difference between the model years. Using this data,2010 CR-V EX 4WD $24,058 -$1,200=$22,858 for a 2009 CR-V EX 4WD.

Here is Honda's press release on 2010 pricing.
For an EX 4WD, MSRP is listed as 25,095
For 2009, it was listed as 24,695.
Difference of $400 if just comparing MSRP. I think the EXL was $500 more.

I've always been told AHFCs rates were around 6.99% for 60 months and figured I'd probably look elsewhere for a cheaper rate when I'm ready to buy
There is no such thing as "always" I financed the Civic at 1.9% for 60 months, and the CR-V at 2.9 for 60 months. You just have to catch them, when they have those deals. Usually 1-2 weeks at the end of a quarter.

I think the splashguards cost around $150, and installation is probably 30-60 minutes. OS $299 isn't terrible.
All cars drip water from the evaporator coil in the A/C system. The CR-V seems to have a very good A/C system with plenty of latent capacity (removes more humidty from the air), so it produces lots of water. Now...if the condensate water leaks inside the pasenger compartment.. then you have a plugged drain or drain tube.
Have you looked under the spare tire? The tire iron should be in a vinyl pouch.
The only 2 tires available on the CR-V are the Bridgestone dualers and the Continentals. Most reviews indicate the Continnetals are slightly better, but both offer mediocre performance.

Apologies for not being clearer. I mentioned in my previous post...."I've always been told the rate was 6.99%".....not "I've been told the rates are always 6.99%". I'm sure there are instances there have been lower APRs for the CRV.....I've just "always been told" the current APR was 6.99% and there were no specials whenever I've inquired in the dealership or via email.
Once a salesman said they had an APR special for a few days, but he also stated they were not honoring internet quotes or any other "deals" on the car during that time. So the low APR would be counterbalanced by a higher car price.
When I'm ready, I will have to keep an eye out around quarter end and see if I can get a low APR coupled with a decent deal on the car itself.

Finally one came in, 2010 EX-L, and out the door was $27,388.00,some add on's such as tinting, wood trim for dash, fog lights that I paid Invoice. About $26,066.00 (Invoice + Delivery cost ) Pick up Friday. Price would have been a bit better but I had a 2010 Insight that I traded and you all know how that goes.

Sounds like a very good price. I'm guessing they plan on making good money reselling the Insight.
