  • I'm in Northern California. I was quoted from TrueCar 2014 CR-V EX (2WD) for $23,288 which includes destination charges. However, it does not include taxes and dealer fees. The price seems to be really good, given factory invoice for EX (2WD) is $24,350. The TrueCar price is already $1,000 below invoice.

    My question to the forum, what is the typical "dealer" fees. I've seen in other forums in the past where dealer will give a low price, but will pad their dealer fees to make up the cost. I tried to read as much as possible, but there are 600+ pages of posts here. If it's already covered, please point me to the right post. Thanks in advance.

    I'm hoping to have the EX OTD price around $25,000.

    your deal with this dealership is not that good. keep on negotiating. get more dealerships involved. To many add on's is whats weighing this deal down. Do you even want all of them..??

    Invoice with dest charge is 26,830 you want to be 800 to 1500 below this number. Paying a 599 admin fee is like giving back 600 of your below invoice price..

    Your target price to buy at all dealerships with a 599 admin fee should be 2000 below invoice. which would make your deal 1400 below invoice if dealer meets your price..

  • @mwiggin said: Hi - I just sealed the deal on a Honda CRV- LX FWD. I'm thinking I did pretty well. Did a lot of homework, Edmunds, Consumer Reports. Went into a dealership briefly to test drive then put used the internet to have dealers in a 200 mile radius court me. The number look like this:

    Invoice........... 20,446 Dest Charge.........830 Doc Fee...............299 TTL.....................325 OTD................21,900

    The dealer delivered it to my house (an hour and a half away). I'm feeling pretty good.

    Whatcha think?

    I think that's a pretty good price, based on what others LX buyers have posted so far.

  • Brian, what type of fees can people expect on their final OTD cost? You bring up a good point with admin fees etc. I know it varies state-by-state and also dealer-by-dealer, but please provide an overview of types of fees we can expect. Thanks in advance.

    abstractj - remember there have been postings for fwd and awd which makes for some of the price differentiation.

    @harper11 I assume it's LX base FWD which $21,900 is pretty good OTD and not invoice.

    OTD pricing consist of

    doc fee, your states tax, dmv fee's. some states have a tire fee and some have a internet fee. that would conclude otd pricing.

    Admin and doc fee's have to be incorporated into your asking price to make those dealer profit charges a wash on the bill of sale. the smart shopper lets the dealer know this when they complain about pricing cant be met..

  • @brian125 - well it seems the hunt for me has restarted.. We were on our way down to buy EX-L - awd w/NAV Only to get a call from the dealer.. that the car has been sold.. Were now - reconsidering FWD same car..

    They are giving us OTD Quote of 29,159 (includes the 8.75 tax fees etc)

  • abstractj: My apologies - I didn't realize you were responding to a specific post. It was a great price - and they were lucky enough to live in a state with no sales tax.

    There are 2 days left to buy in Dec. people who buy the last days of this month will find great deals.. Get as many dealerships involved as your willing to travel. If you strike a deal by email or phone have that dealership put it in writing and you will give him a credit card deposit. This secures your deal.

  • Brian, thank you for all the help, I have learned a lot reading through the past few months of posts. In your opinion, should the target still be 800-1500 below invoice, or would recommend a lower target due to the end of the month/year?

    Your area plays a big part in pricig.. having knowledge of that price market gives you a ideal of how much you could get.. In NY/NJ/ CT the market is between 500 to 1000 below invoice. Knowing this......... my target price might be 1400 below if i was buying tomm . At worst case buying from a dealer who will sell at 1000 below. Get as many dealerships involved.. This will help find dealers willing to sell at a lower price . Some may still need those end of year sales numbers etc..

    what area are you looking to buy/ lease

  • Brian, I'm in the Chicago area looking to buy tomorrow or Tuesday if the price is right. Originally I was aiming for that target area you have mentioned so often. I'm thinking for my area that should still be a decent price.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,012

    Yes.............. you are in that target price range . Calling / emailing 15 to 20 dealerships should help you in getting a better price.. good luck post your deal when done..

    Use prior sale posting to help you with pricing and buying in Chicago

  • Brian, looking at a quote from a NC dealer : 2014 CRV EXL 2wd $25,890 + 776 tax (3%) + 73 title + 549 docs = $ 27,288 OTD . Should I look at your $1500 below the $25890 ( 25890 - 1500 = $24,390) ... and dealer is saying I need to finance thru Honda or is the $25890 a good starting price already ? if so can I then ask for various accessories like Wheel locks, splash guards, spoiler, side molding, cargo tray and roof rack ? When should I bring up a trade-in ? ... Thank you very much for your response
