    buynewauto,

    We all pay dest/ charge so just add that into your best price. Out of state purchases are calculated on your states tax rate. Buying out of state thou you may find dealerships with cheaper doc fee charges and prices.

    Can anyone in the NY/NJ area share the prices they've paid for 2014 CRV (LX, EXL). Thanks!

  • Hi Brian ,

    In Minneapolis area they are offering $750 flex cash available if you finance through American Honda ... But I was under the impression as $500 flex cash

    Also the HONDA sales for Feb 2014 is low compared to others http://www.ibtimes.com/us-new-auto-sales-february-2014-nissan-chrysler-leap-double-digits-gm-fell-slightly-ford-down-61

    As far as i'm aware flex cash is 500. Unless Honda has changed Financial institutions and they are willing to offer more up front money. Very good article. This down turn in sales makes deals even better by months end in some states. This month ends the 1st quarter for all car companies. Some folks will make monster deals if they catch the right dealerships looking to boost sales.

    Hi Brian , Minneapolis dealers are not willing to match Chicago Area Dealer Quotes so I am asking them for the best offer price

    Not 1 dealer by you has flex cash. Forget about your above deal this dealer is not looking to sell yet.................. play ball with the rest of your targeted dealerships. The month is still very young let it play out til the end.. Dont be fooled or suckered yet into paying a higher price than you have to .

    Hi Brian, I am receiving the Price for 2014 Honda CRV EX AWD : $24800(Including Des.price)+ tax+ Doc.fee+Regtn. (New Jersey state) Is it a good deal ? Thanks!!!

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,934

    rajroy,

    In NJ your quoted price seems to be inline with the rest of this area'a pricing. Give and take a few more hundred.

    Invoice with dest charge = 25,519 on your ex, awd model . So at 719 below invoice which is a decent price... Dealer will be taking 300 dollars plus back when he adds on his doc fee charge onto the bill of sale. I would hold out another week or two getting more deaslerships involved to see if another 3 or 400 is possible.. Regardless of your decision at this price you will be buying a Awesome suv with great resale value..

    Good luck.... post your deal with dealership when done..

    Hi all,

    Has anyone recently bought a CRV EX FWD in Dallas Fort-Worth area?

    I am looking to buy one and am wondering if you can share your wisdom/experience/information to help me get one?

    From reading this forum I have gained valuable info/knowledge from many of you, especially from brian125. I now know that end of March/June/Sep/Dec is the best time but would like to get more knowledge/info before starting the process.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    rajroy,

    I am also looking for a 2014 CRV-EX-AWD. I am in PA. The best offer I am getting so far in PA is $24920 (including destination) here in PA. However, a Amex-true car certificate is giving me an estimated price of $24695 (including destination). I have not spoken to them yet. May be you want to try them for yours.

    brian125, I have sent you a PM this morning. When you get a chance, could you please give your thoughts on that? I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance.

  • ghrpghrp Posts: 3

    brian125, Thank you very much for your invaluable suggestions to several forum members. I think it is great that you are helping so many. Really appreciated.

    I am looking for a 2014 CRV-EX AWD. (I am in PA). Also, I am in no hurry to buy meaning I don't need to buy immediately. But, would like to buy by end of this month.

    I have been doing some research and settled on the CRV. Test drove once too. I had checked through Costco Auto Program (CAP), True Car, Edmunds and Amex true car.

    I am getting an offer of 25,295 (including destination fee) - but not including some pre-installed accessories (mud guard, cargo tray, floor mats and wheel locks) - through CAP. The preinstalled comes to $404.

    Another dealer Sussman's is offering 24920 (including destination) but without any accessories.

    I remember you mentioning about George (AutoSport, NJ) in one of your discussions. I get a 24695 (including destination) from them but that is through the Amex True car. I have not got any direct email regarding price from him.

    Could you please help with the following: 1. What would be the best deal to get on this? I have no experience in buying through dealer. 2. Do I wait towards the end of the month? 3. Autosport seems the lowest, though it is out of state for me. Is that a good deal?

    Thanks a lot for your great help.

    Just to add to above post

    Step 1---- Call as many dealerships as your willing to travel to... ask dealership Internet dept. for,

    Internet managers, name, email, and direct phone number.

    ask all dealerships if they have flex cash if you finance thru them.

    ask all dealerships what there doc fee charge is???

    Step 2---- Once your arrmed and ready with this info you need to know your exact model and any options you want.

    Have a target price to buy. there should be a high and a low number to earn your business.. You should start your buying process the last week of any month holding out to the last days if need be for best pricing.. So after step 2

    Now your ready to negotiate a deal. Start your calls, emails to your targeted dealerships.

    To avoid wasted time on the phone when collecting your info if they switch you to to a floor salesman tell him/ her your looking for these questions to be answered you will be considering buying a honda at months end and will be going thru the internet dept for the sale.. Do not get involved with leaving your name etc. your calls are for collecting info. If saleman wont help you hang up and ask for the internet sales dept... . Step 3 is talking and negotiating with Int/ mgrs. or there associates about pricing ..

  • Hi Brian, The CR-V LX AWD I have got the final price from one of the local dealer at $22304 ( including dest charge ) and I am getting $350 less ( around $21953 ) in chicago area but $350 will offset the travel charges .

    Invoice Price w/ dest ---------------> 23544 Best Price Offer ----------------------->22304 which is $1240 less than the invoice price.........

    Please let me know your suggestions ..................

    buy

    Reading but not checking your numbers..... Good job with your negotiations so far.. Your 350 dollar savings is not worth the time and trip to Chicago . If your local honda dealerships that are closer to your home do not want to beat your last offer of 1240 below invoice give that dealer your business. You have done well in a tuff market.. Here in the NY/NJ/PA/De. area's we are not seeing prices that low so you could feel good about that.

    Sussman honda in PA was around 599 below invoice. I told the one forum member you might be able to get that dealer to sell for 900 below invoice at the end of the month...... then minusing dealerships doc fee charge puts him back in that 600 below range.

    Good luck..... Post your deal and dealerships name after you purchase ..

    Hi All,

    I live in Chicago, and want to buy CR-V EX-L AWD with navigation. My dealer is offering $27759 including destination fees. Every other fees extra. Is that a good price?

    May I know where to find the invoice price that you all are talking about?

    Thanks in advance.

    @buynewauto46, thank you for the link. So, the invoice amount is showing as $29,404 (which includes destination). That means the dealer quoted 1645 less. Should I go with this deal?

    Your suggestions will help us. Thank you!

    BUYnew:

    The above is the Sucker package. Dealer is laughing all the way to the bank.

    My answer is.... Save your money , If you still have a extra $3,183 after your purchase put this money in a interest bearing account and in 7 yrs from now you will have a nice down payment for your next vehicle.

    Bernardi honda will sell that same warranty for just over 1000 dollars.

    Hi Brian, just wanted to update you and let everyone know what I got from a suburban dealer in the Philadelphia area for 2014 LX AWD. $23038 (includes $133 doc fee that I didn't fight) + 500 in flex cash. Ended up at right around $1000 under invoice I think. Thanks for your feedback earlier, it helped a lot.

  • wdwdlgwdwdlg Posts: 9

    Hi Tedinphilly can you give the exact breakdown and which Dealer in Phili area you purchased your vehicle i am in NJ and none come close to the price you have quoted. Thx

  • Hi, wdwdlg, sorry, I'm not comfortable naming the dealer, but will say that contacting five or so dealers in the philly area got us the price we needed in fairly short order. Also, just to be clear, the price I just stated didn't include registration or sales tax.

  • wdwdlgwdwdlg Posts: 9

    Tedinphilly, I thought your price included TTL. Then its no different then here in NJ. Meaning you bought approx 500 below Invoice.

    Sussman Honda gave me MSRP $25,025 YOUR INTERNET PRICE $22,954 Sloane Honda gave me Internet SalePrice $22,953.94

    This is your breakdown.

    Dealer invoice w/ dest charge for CRV LX AWD : $23,554

    Your Purchase Price (including Dest charge of $ 830) : $22,905

    PA Tax 6% $1,374.3 DMV approx 250 Documentary fee 133

    24662.3

    -500 FLEX

    OTD : 24162.3

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,934

    Ted,

    Your deal with the flex cash gave you a nice deal.. The dealers doc fee charges were very low compared to other dealers.. You can Always IM any member with dealership name were you bought from... There is no harm in that at all . Without us posting dealerships names we cant help each other.

    Enjoy your new CRV................ thanks for posting.

    wdwdlg, yes my official price including doc fee was only $512 below invoice, but my $500 flex cash effectively lowered that by another $470 in after tax dollars. PM'd you dealer name in case you still are interested.

    Thanks again Brian. I think we may have been able to negotiate the doc fee lower or even away but I just tired out and wanted to get home. Feel like we did pretty ok overall.

  • Hi Some dealers are offering $ 750 flex cash .......and many dealers that I have contacted last week are sending email today that they are willing for sale price is 22,953.00 until last week they were around 700 $ more

  • rachicagorachicago Posts: 4

    Hi,

    I emailed different dealers, and everyone is coming close to what was given to me yesterday. Least quote I got is around $27650 for CR-V EX-L AWD with Navigation.

    Seems like I should go with this option. Do you think I need to ask anything for this price? I am not looking for accessories right now. I want to make sure I am getting all the basic things. This is my first car.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,934

    rachicago

    what state are you in??

    Did your selling price include the destanation charge of $ 830...?

    Did your selling price have Flex cash of 500 included in price...?

    what are your area's or that dealers doc fee charges.................?

    Your buying the top of the line CRV every option will be in this vehicle.

    Small accessories like Splash guards, Pin stripping, all season mats , cargo tray, and trunk liner could be bought at dealership. You could buy these items online from either college hills honda , or cheap honda parts for a fraction of what the dealer will charge you.. Its always best to check out online prices and have dealers meet or beat those prices while your negotiating to buy your vehicle and NOT after you have agreed on a selling price. Your buying leverage will be gone..

    I want to thank Brian for all his contributions to this forum. I ended up buying yesterday EX-AWD Invoice: 25,599 (includes Destination) Sales pirce: 24,799 Flex Cash: 750 Actual cost: 24,050 Tax (MN 6.5%): 1,611 DMV fees:411 Doc Fee: 75 OTD: 26,177

    Could have done better but I'm happy with what I got. i did learn one thing: Make sure you get fresh inventory and not something that has been in the lot for months. I ended up getting a black CRV just off the truck with 1 mile on it. look for a sequence number last 7 digits of the vin that's newer than 65xxxxx
