    Pretty much the same suv with the exception of driven a 2014 model for 5 month in the previous year. On jan,1 2014 your model is considered still a brand new model opposed to a 13 which is considered a 1 yr old model.

    You need to check out edmunds new car pricing to see what this new CRV's invoice price is to tell what kind of deal your getting.

    If you want to post this info i will tell you if your getting a good deal on the 2014.

    Hi Goblue26,

    I am based out of Southern California and in the market for the same, except that I need AWD. Your deal looks excellent. Can you please send me the name of the dealer where you got this deal?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. The dealer said no 0.9% APR and no $500 incentive. So we went to another dealer and found the car we wanted. Finally got 13 CRV EX-L AWD for 25500 + TTL. I know it is not a super hot deal, but that is the only white one around here.

    Hello all,

    Just got a quote from Fladboe Honda in Irvine CA for 2013 CRV AWD EX-L, no navigation, no RES.

    $26,750 plus tax & lic. The price includes destination charge as well.

    I know its not best deal but wanted to check how far I am off from a best price.

    Thanks
  • Masama, that's a nice deal. Which dealer did you go to?

    I bought my 2013 CRV EX-L AWD with navi for $26,900 (includes splash guard) plus TTL and doc fee of $250. The negotiated price inlcudes $1000 for incentives and flex cash. Comparing with the $29,400 invoice price, looks like I bought it for approx. $2500 below ( little more if we count splash guard too). What do you think of this price?
  • loveodyloveody Posts: 10
    There is scope for another approx $800 negotiation. Look around at other dealerships.
  • masamamasama Posts: 4
    It is Autosport Honda of Bridgewater, NJ. But the APR is pretty high and no incentive. So I didn't go for it.

    Most people in this forum will not be able to get 1500 below invoice price. They are buying at the wrong time. You start your negotiations the last days of the month.

    If you recieved 1500 below invoice price plus the 1000 in incentives you did very well.

    If i was buying a CRV this month 1500 below would be my starting number to buy plus any incentives that apply to me. The 2013 CRV is almost a 9 month old model with the 2014 comming next in month.

  • I meant, where did you finally buy 2013 ex-l from?

    Hi CRV experts,

    I'm in the market for a 2013 CRV EX-L AWD. I was at the local Honda lot yesterday and their was a good number of 2014 CRV's there so I figured it would be a good time to pick up a 2013. I've gotten a quote for $26800 + TTL that included $500 Flex cash and $500 Loyalty discounts. What is a good target price for a year-end 2013 CRV EX-L AWD? Also any recommendations for dealers in Western PA?
  • Galpin Honda in Mission Hills. $24,948 for a 2013 EX-L FWD. (with $1000 off incentives)

    Just got a 2013 CR-V LX, AT, for $21,719 total delivered price - this includes all the fees and taxes (even $700 in state taxes, North Carolina). Only option added at dealership was mudflaps for $115, and that is included in the price above.

    I went to another dealership and they wanted me to make an offer. I said, $21,500 total out the door. He said that wasn't even a serious offer. And yeah, he laughed. Included in the price above was $500 for Loyalty.

    From what you posted your deal on your CRV EXL/w nav, was $1464 below invoice. your states taxes and dmv charges are not a factor in your deal. every states has different rates.

    Subtract the dealerships doc fee charge from your below invoice price and thats what you bought your vehicle for. Overall a very good deal.

    If you have not already posted the state and name of dealership were you purchased please post it so other forum members can try for a similar deal..

    Haven't finalized the deal yet. Will post detail once I have it.

    Couple of question -

    Do I have to pay doc fee ? How much is that number ?

    Can I ask them to waive off dealership inventory tax and roads and bridge ? Are those significant number ?

    Do I expect cost to go down even more once 2014 model is out in dealership or if I try with them at month end ?

    I made a mistake on your deal and pricing. The $ 1464 below price was estimated on a CRV, EXL, awd, w/ nav. Not the 2WD

    If your numbers are correct for the same CRV but with 2wd here is your numbers on the deal.

    Invoice w dest/charge=.............28,094

    your price.................................27,800.

    this is a terrible deal at 294 below invoice price. walk away from this deal. you could do much better. Click on my user name and read my prior posts on How and when to buy. This will help you get a better deal. Read my posts in the Accord prices paid forum you will learn alot in no time on buying/ tips.

    At this time of the year your target price to buy should be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price plus any incentives and rebates that apply to you.

    Until dealers have alot of 2014 CRV's on there lots there wont be much change in pricing.
    You should always ask each dealership when your negotiating pricing to disclose his doc fee' charge. I always add the doc fee charge to my asking price to buy making that fee a wash on the bill of sale. Unless dealer agree's to remove that fee. Almost all honda dealerships wont remove that fee.

    Brian125,
    Could you please advice me with my search for LX-AWD 2013?
    How much would be a good deal?

    Your target price to buy any model should be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price plus any incentives and rebates that apply to you. Your area plus supply and demand will play a big part on pricing. Until these dealerships have alot of 2014's on there lots pricing will remain between above numbers. If you could find dealerships with 15 or more lx models thats where you will get your best deal. Dealers with limited lx models on there lot might not be willing to sell as cheap.

    End of Oct thru Dec is when you will find your best deals on 2013 CRV's. The only problem is model and choice of color might not be what you want.

  • Was this AWD or FWD? I'm not sure what you mean by "AT". I'm trying to negotiate for 2013 CR-V LX AWD in New Jersey. Thanks and hope you enjoy the new car.

    Regarding the doc fee, it is NOT a fee! It is price, additional profit for the dealer and additional cost for you. Dealers add this fee to give the illusion of a lower price. Dealers use the word fee to give the illusion of legality

    However, the fee will need to be shown on the paperwork. If not the dealer runs the risk of being sued for discrimination.

    That does not mean you have to actually pay it. Simply reduce the price by the fee amount.

    It is amazing how so many people seem to think these fees are legitimate. The reality is these fees are just one more game dealers employ to deceive customers.

    The price you pay includes all dealer costs plus profit. The only fees you should pay over price are those required by the Government, like sales tax. After all the dealer does not attempt to charge extra for other costs like electricity. Why should you pay extra for the limited labor costs associated with preparing documents which are mostly done by computer during the quality time you spend in the F&I office?

    First time I remember seeing a doc fee was about 25 years ago. I did not pay it then and I have not paid a doc fee since.

    Just tell the dealer you will not pay a separate doc fee. Ask the dealer to reduce the negotiated price or increase the agree upon trade value. If the dealer balks, just say thank you and begin to walk away.

    Most dealers will not let a solid deal walk over the doc fee. There is never anything to loose letting the dealer think a deal is walking.

    Hi Brian125,

    Dealer is including these - tinted windows+wheel lock+trunk tray+splash guard in the invoice price of 27800,

    those alone will cost around $1000 , is it sill a bad deals ?

    How much are you getting for the car out of the dealer?
    I am looking for the same model

    Yes. go to College Hills honda parts and accessories for invoice pricing on your options. Wheel locks and splash guards you could buy both for $100 trunk tray $90 window tint inexpensive. i could get all for windows tinted for $125. Most dealers will throw in wheel locks and splash guards at no extra cost. Dealer pays a fraction of the cost listed for those items.

    If that deal you posted is a 2wd model walk away. You need to be 1000 to 1600 below invoice price at this time of the year. plus any incentives that apply to you.

  • Brian, thx for all your great advice! I'm wondering how much you could expect to save by waiting a month or two. If your range is 1000-1600 below invoice now, what could it be later? I don't need a new car now, I just want one... But I'm willing to wait if it saves me a few thousand bucks (more beer!).
