#9318 of 13049 Purchased 2010 CRV EX-L 4WD, no navigation in MN
Oct 29, 2009 (4:57 pm)
I have been going though the process of deciding, researching, pricing, and finally purchasing this vehicle for months and it's a relief for it to be complete.
Purchase price was $26,799 +TTL and a $75 doc fee. I also purchased the cargo mat, cargo net, front splash guards, and all-season mats at cost.
From the search I did around the Twin Cities, I believe I got a fair price. I ended up purchasing my CRV from Brookdale Honda in Brooklyn Park, MN. This is the same place I purchased my 2001 Honda Civic in 2001. I had also done my service there for many years.
I moved closer to Hopkins Honda and have been getting service there for my Honda Civic for the past 2-3 years. After I had gotten several bids from local dealers, I tried again to go to Hopkins Honda for a better offer. They would only sell the CRV at MSRP which I thought to be very insulting especially since every other local dealer is quoting much closer to invoice. I wanted to continue getting my service at that location and thought my repeat business would be encouraged my a reasonable offer. I was really disappointed by what I thought to be poor customer service and asked the internet sales person with whom I was corresponding by email to submit my offer to the sales manager. She located my phone numbers (work and cell) in their database and called me to discuss vehicle pricing at MSRP. I will no longer do business with Hopkins Honda based on their poor business and principle.
Sooo... I will now be returning my service business to Brookdale Honda.
I should also mention that I really wanted the tango red exterior color. That color in this model has been difficult to find in my area. This complicated my dealings even more. Still Brookdale came through with their end of the deal and completed a dealer trade for the same price. My new car was towed on a flatbed on Monday and I got it Monday night. There were some aspects of the deal that could have been better (like the pushy finance guy and making sure the accessories we had in our deal were available before the parts department closed -- I still have to pick these up).
That sums up my experience in the Twin Cities.

It's a tough crowd in here, even the old vet of these forums isell generally avoids this area and sticks to the smart shopper section

#9322 of 13049 New CRV Owner
Oct 30, 2009 (7:18 am)
Hello everyone and I hope that you are having a great day.
We purchased a new CRV EX all wheel drive for approximately $23,500.00 before taxes all dealer fees included.
The new CRV is light years ahead of the competitors regarding fit and finish as well as styling. It am amazing how well everything is assembled. This is our third CRV.
However there is a more exciting entry for 2011 to be released in Feb, 2010. The new Hyundai Tucson looks absolutely fantastic and will make the competition look very long in the tooth.
The 2011 Tucson is rated for 30 mpg highway. I may buy this one for myself.

Just bought a 2010 Honda CRV LX today. Traded our 2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4 with 51k in good shape along with $7k out the door. My wife was happy. I wanted a truck.

Not a dealer or salesman, just a car buyer/consumer who's been on this site for years and gets tired of seeing salesman get "bashed" for no good reason, esp when some are here to help. What really galls me is someone who has been here for a short period of time and starts in unfairly.....
BTW, your apologies are accepted by all!....
#9326 of 13049 2009 CRV EXL Price
Oct 31, 2009 (3:27 pm)
I am in CT. I put down a deposit on a 2009 EXL. The lowest price I could get them down to was 25,800 with a few extras like a roof rack. My payment would be (with $5000 down)
430 per month for 60 or 375 for 72 months.
Sound about right?
#9327 of 13049 2010 CRV EX...just got ours..
Oct 31, 2009 (5:34 pm)
We bought a 2010 CRV EX today. Paid $25,144 + Tax and Title. Got the following dealer installed options included in the deal: All weather heavy duty mats, Cargo Liner, Fog Lights, Mud Guards, and Roof Rack.
We had looked for quite a bit of time and included this forum as well as the pricing calculator to be well prepared for the purchase. Thanks for providing that help. It was down to the new Outback and the CRV. Both are very nice vehicles. I guess it came down to past Honda experience. We have a 1998 Honda CRV EX that we bought new in the summer of 1997. It has been a very good vehicle in all ways and plan to keep it a bit longer. We have also had a a Honda Odyssey and enjoyed that very much.
