    WE BOUGHT OUR 2010 CROSSTOUR 2WD E.X. A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO FROM A NORTHERN CALIFORNIA HONDA DEALERSHIP. THE MSRP+DESTINATION CHARGE+PRO PAC OPTION = $31455. OUR NEGOTIATED PRICE WAS $26877 (INCLUDED DESTINATION CHARGE AND THE PRO-PAC OPTION). AFTER ADDING THE DMV DOCUMENT FEES, LICENSE FEE, AND TAX, THE OTD PRICE WAS $29855 WITHOUT FINANCING...WE TRADED IN OUR USED CAR AND PAID THE DIFFERENCE IN CASH. ALL AND ALL, WE GOT THE CAR FOR $4578 OFF OF THE MSRP+DESTINATION CHARGE+PRO PAC OPTION. VERY CURIOUS TO KNOW IF THIS WAS A GOOD NEGOTIATED PRICE??? ALL POINTS ASIDE, WE LOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE THIS CAR......WELL, THE VIEW OUT BACK COULD BE IMPROVED IS THE ONLY CON SO FAR.

    Looks like there is 0.9% APR on this vehicle already. Let's see what else Honda can throw on top to make these move.

    I would gladly take one of the AWD units off their hands, but not for $30,000+!!!
  • Based upon our negotiations in Cincinnati, you got a fantastic deal! We're looking at AWD with Nav and they won't budge hardly off MSRP. They can cram it where the sun don't shine as far as I'm concerned.
  • bpdmtbpdmt Posts: 2
    with the model 4wd that you want and the nav system, my dealer will discount around $5000 off msrp. i asked for the discounted prices on all of the crosstour models while i was there waiting for the car to be washed and delivered. the average discount around northern california that i see is around $3500 off msrp. wonder how long ago was your visit to your honda dealership? they might be changing/discounting their price as we speak...since its march and march is the end of the 1st quarter where dealers have to meet a certain quota on sold cars.

    Currently a discount of about $3,500 off msrp seems to be about what I finding in looking last weekend for 4WD EX-L w/out navi in midwest. Most were starting around $2,700 - $3,000 of msrp.

    Used the Costco website to locate a Honda dealer in CT for a Crosstour EXL 6cyl w/Nav and they came back with $4,900 off of MSRP. Tried to trade in my 08 Highlander Hybrid and they would not come close to NADA blue book and actually offered $4,000 less than trade in value.

    Since there is nowhere near a 4900.00 markup in a Crosstour it looks like they were trying to make it up on your trade.

    Now, see if they will still take 4900.00 off the MSRP and sell the Toyota yourself.

    Don't think so...

    Selling the used car yourself is not a tax smart way to do it. You would then have to pay full tax on the new car purchase price.
  • louisnlouisn Posts: 110
    ichor, For sales tax purposes, in my state-Arkansas-you can still deduct the sale price of your old car if you sell it privately and if you sell it within 60? days of when you bought the new car.

    Thanks, that's good information.

    Problem is that people who are looking to buy a new Highlander, will not be looking at 2 year old used one. People who are looking to buy a used Highlander, will not be looking at a 2 year old, since the cost is still too close to the new.

    Selling a 2 year old Highlander may take a while....

    Just got quoted on a 2WD EX-L, Nav, Mud guards and roof wind deflectors for $28,995.00 includes destination. (MSRP $35704) The quote was from South Shore Honda in NY. Guess thats not bad , $6,700 off MSRP. Prices must be coming down.
  • alan338alan338 Posts: 5
    Your quote from South Shore Honda seems to be a wishful thinking for me. I went to a local Honda dealership in central NJ to look at the car last week. The salesman told me the only incentive was 0.9% or 1.9% financing and car would be sold at close to MSRP for the 2WD or AWD with navigation. The financing incentive expires on 5/3/10.

    I looked at the AWD without navi in the showroom and it looked nice. However, when I sat on the driver seat I was not happy because the rear view thru the rear windshield was blocked as much as 50% (my estimate) with the 3 rear headrests up. The salesman immediately lowered the read middle headrest and the view improved somewhat. I walked out without test driving the car. Earlier this evening I saw another posting saying the visibility problem was not as bad as it was first feared, especially with the help of a back up camera.

    After seeing your posting, I emailed to South Shore Honda to request a quote on both models: 2WD with navi and AWD with navi. If the price is as attractive as what was quoted to you, I might trade in my 2005 Mercury Montego AWD premier for this car.
  • alan338alan338 Posts: 5
    It does not appear there are too many people interested in buying or test driving this vehicle. Is it because of its look, price, visibility issue or other features that turn the potential buyers away?

    I sent an email to South Shore Honda in NY requesting a quote two days ago and I have yet to receive any response from them. It is very unusual for a dealership to do that. I have no idea on the market condition of this Crosstour. Are they all sold out?

    Anyway, I am still interested in this vehicle. Would anyone be kind enough to share his/her shopping experience with us? Any news on this car is welcome.

    Hi everyone, I live in Arizona and the car I was originally negotiating on was a Red front wheel drive with Nav. The wife did not like the red and wanted the white one on the lot with the tan leather interior. That one was AWD with no NAV, MSRP was 36585 negotiated price was 32500. So not a bad deal, most likely could have done better but it was already a long day. Hope this helps...............

    I'm in midwest. So far the best price I got is $31500. I guess I may go a few hundreds $ further. Is this good deal? Thanks.
  • alan338alan338 Posts: 5
    Your info is helpful; however, I am not sure the $36585 MSRP for AWD-L without Navigation is the right one. I looked up the MSRP and it is $34730 which is more than $1800 lowered than your quote.

    Posting #17's price ($31,500) seems a more attractive deal. Is there anybody who purchased one AWD-L with Navigation for less than $34,000 plus tax and tag? Thanks.
  • miked22miked22 Posts: 20
    My local dealer told me the 2wd ex-L with nav does not exist?? Does honda ever offer any cash rebate?. It seems to be fairly easy to get $4000 off without trying.
  • evan1229evan1229 Posts: 3
    Anyone know if Honda is offering any incentives on this vehicle? Any ideas of changes coming to the 2011?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi evan1229. Honda is currently offering incentives on the 2011 Accord Crosstour. Specifically, it has the lowest finance rate that it has ever offered, 0.9% for up to 5 years, or a special lease program on this model right now.

    Honda is not currently providing any dealer cash on the Crosstour, but I assume that it will offer some eventually.

    Given the fact that this model was brand new for the 2010 model year, I don't expect Honda to make any significant changes to the 2011 version of it, but I haven't looked into the matter.

    If Honda does go to an incentive on the Crosstour, the 0.9% financing will go away.

    They won't do both!

    Was quoted at $31,300 Out the door on a EX-L Xtour w/out Nav. This is including a trade-in that I was appraised for at $3000. The car I am trying to trade in is worth far more than at @ $5,350 (Dealer Trade In) but I would have settled for $4,500.

    Because of the lowball appraisal, I didn't budge from a Out-the-door price of $30,500. The mngr said he would call me on Monday.

    What do you guys think, Is this a far negotiation so far? I don't think I am lowballing at all, but If I am, how much would you guys step up to?
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,915
    You probably have a trade in that they don't want. What is it?

    Thjey won't pay you more than they can get for it at auction or from a wholesaler.

    You can always sell it yourself!

    It's a 2001 Audi A6 2.7t quattro. Fully loaded. 86700 miles. Clean title, No accidents, no mechanical issues. Some wear and tear but nothing abnormal for a 9 year old car.

    KBB quotes it at $5,350. I would have settled for $4,500. I think it's a near steal for this car in it's better-than-decent condition.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,915
    That's the problem.

    I'm sure it's a nice car but people fear Audi's that are getting into the higher miles even though for the year that's not a lot of miles.

    As Audi's age they get troublesome and expensive to fix and people shy away from them. I would try to sell it on your own.

    It is a new crosstour, black on black, purchased from Hondaland in Tampa, FL on Labor day. Selling price is $27,911 that includes destination, mud guard, wheel lock, truck liner, and pin stripes but not TTL and $600 dealer processing fees. With this price, I could not get the .9%/60mos financing. Instead, I was offered 3.0%/60 mos financing by Honda Financing, which was not too bad. Overall, it was not a bad buying experience. The salesperson is very nice and knowledgeable too.

    I bought a 2010 Crosstour EX from Tampa Honda Land during the $1,200 Cash To Dealer promotion (I believe it has now ended). I paid $26,263 plus $600 in dealer fees. I thought that the price was about right.

    I got myself an EX in August and then negotiated a deal for an EXL for my mother-in-law in September. The EX was $26,000 and the EXL was $28,559 - both include the destination charges.
  • Seems like a great buy!
  • i just got my cross tour ex-l.

    Price paid = $347/ per month (this includes tax).
    Downpayment - $1,300.

    Seems like buying may have been a slightly better option, as the quoted selling price was $28,512 if I bought.

    He used a price of ~$29,500 to calculate lease payment because he said he didn't get some rebate or incentive with the lease.

    All in all, I feel the deal was reasonable although I probably could have received a little more.

    Thanks everyone for your posts and please state any actual leasing deals if you closed a deal. It's good for the consumers!
