Honda CR-V Owners Meet the Members

    Thanks for the info. The price I paid was 22517 not incl. NYS sales tax. I used the AAA car buying program, no haggling. I was shown the invoice for the CR-V (which matched both Edmunds and Consumer Reports pricing) and was told that with AAA, members pay $250 above invoice - so I bought the auto.

    Thanks again and enjoy tour CR-V

    I purchased a new Honda CR-V. The dealer tried to push the benefits of sthg called Auto Butler Vehicle Protection Program which includes applying 10 six monthly applications of paint sealant and fabriguard (no leather) over five year period for $800 upfront.

    Based on previous owners experiences, do any of you use such a protection, is it really required and is it really good (value for $800)

    applying 10 six monthly applications of paint sealant and fabriguard

    Is $800 a reasonable amount to pay them for waxing your car every six months and spraying a protectant on your seats?

    My suggestion is to wash and wax your own car, and buy a couple of cans of ScotchGuard to spray on the interior.

    I can't see spending $800 for someone to wax and Scotchguard my CR-V - I could do it myself for a fraction of the cost.

    Hey...did you find a company that makes the necessary accessory cable and tuner to enable your "XM" radio in the CR-V

    Sorry about that. I told Karen I couldn't find a picture of Brad Pitt standing anywhere near a Honda, so they had to deal with an actual photo of me. :surprise:

    Brad Pitt....pffft. Looks aren't everything. I bet he knows next to nothing about his vehicle. Of course, if Angelina is in it, I doubt he would care. ;)

    that photo doesn't look that much like the in-person you.
  • hi... sorry i did not answer this sooner but I havent been getting updates from the forum and guess i may not have had my settings on the correct way.. I got a XM tuner and antenna (i thought the antenna was on the CRV too.. but was wrong) from accessories.. i guess it was a bit cheaper than getting it at a dealer, however, after the Best Buy installation was pushing $600... my wife likes it though.. and since then.. have gotten one for my kia rio... :D

    Hi all hoping i am in the right spot.We just puchased a 06 4wd Lx for $19,900 plus tax and title on 12/10/05.We love it so far.I think we are in for a lot of snow so it looks to be a good purchase so far..
  • Greetings, folks.

    My wife and I just picked up our 2006 silver moss metallic EX (800 under invoice; 2500 under sticker). When we first saw this particular one, it still had the white plastic protectors. It had just come off the transport with 8 miles on it. Well, about an hour after leaving the dealer, it's up to 70-plus. We're excited. First Honda, first SUV.

    I know it's a brand new car, but we took it on the highway, and we were wowwed by the smooth ride. Effortless acceleration, even for a V4. If Honda comes out with a V6 in 3 years, I may want one for myself (this one is the wife's).
  • Hey group,

    I'm a new CR-V owner, silver 2002 LX w/47000 miles. This is a great vehicle! Plenty of get up and go, nice ride and all my photo gear fits in the back without the seats going down. No mods or additions yet but window tinting is in the very near future. Glad I found ya'll and hope we'll talk again soon!


    Birmingham Alabama :D

    Effortless acceleration, even for a V4.

    Here we go again.:-) V4 is a motorcycle engine, not a car engine. Not to burst a bubble, bur Honda does not offer V4's in any of its cars. Not even the smallest Dunk (3 cyl turbo). I think you meant I4 :-)
  • Pardon moi...I-4 :P

    Here we go again. :) The sphincter police keeping everything on the up and up.

    Ok, new owner, 2006 CR-V EX with 5 speed manual transmission. Silver Moss.

    3rd Honda. Have owned 2 Odys. Currently an 04 EX-L.

    Very impressed with the CR-V so far. Just enough vehicle for me and the family and economical to operate.

    Congrats! An EX 5MT in Silver...perfect. I miss mine from time to time. :cry:
  • Stumbled on to your site here, didn't know that a CR-V forum even existed. But it's a good idea. We've got a 1997 and a 2002 CR-V that we both like very much. My company car is an '05 Escape. Not a bad car, rather comfortable. But the Hondas got them beat for quality and fit for sure. Any Honda CR-V experts reside in this forum? I've got a few questions.

    It's OK Varmint, you can drive mine at the meets. I'll let you drive mine at the Olympics if you organize this year. :-)
