    NY doc fee's are capped at 75 dollars. NJ doc fee's vary at different dealerships they can run anywhere from 249 to 400 dollars. You need to ask dealerships before making you offer price. Every state has different otd pricing due to taxes and dmv charges. Concentrate on getting the lowest sale price for the vehicle and know what each dealerships doc fee charges are.
    Dealer hold back you can find on the edmunds home page. Honda is 2% of msrp price. I posted earlier.... if you could get 500 below dealers invoice price would be a good deal right now.. NY is a hard market for anything lower right now on a 2014 model. On a 2013 model you would need to get at least 1500 below for that model being its a 10 month old model and on Jan,1st its considered a 1year old SUV not a 3 month old suv. If you total or have 2013 stolen after jan,1 your car has depreciated 1 full year thats what INS will pay out.

  • Thanks again Brian. Good Info & much appreciated...helped clear up a few of the "car buying" cobwebs residing in my head these days! I will continue checking in with this forum to see if anyone living in the tri-state area pops in and shares their buying experience, dealer location, costs etc for a 2014 crv-l with navi. I Live in NY (westchester/putnam counties).. I plan to internet purchase, and am willing to drive/purchase anywhere within tri-state (NY CT NJ) so I'm open to a fairly wide net.
  • I am planning to purchase 2014 CRV-L AWD w/Navi via Internet and in the process of doing my "homework". Also trading in my Odyssey. Plan to nail down purchase price of new car with Internet Manager first. Just not sure how a trade-in is handled when buying a car through Internet. Would appreciate anyone who could share their experience and give me the "how to's" on a trade in aspect of things. Thanks!
  • I am looking for recommendations about dealers in my area.
    How much could be a good price OTD for the AWD-LX 2013 in Texas??
    Thanks
  • I am also looking for a 2014 ex-l w nav. I live in West Virginia and we have few Honda dealers in our state so the ex-l w nav is sometimes difficult to find. I live close to Columbus OH area but WV DMV told me I have to pay tax in WV to get license and get tax refund from the dealership if I buy out of state. Has anyone done this before? Or will I be stuck paying high prices due to limited inventory? This forum has been such a great reference thought I was ready to make the purchase the end of this month but don't know if I can find what I want.

    Thanks!!
  • Got a quote for CRV EX-L for $ 29,000 OTD which includes Tax $2,122 $ 450 documentation $ 480 for title) makes vehicle price is $ 25,948

    is it a good deal?

    Put together your 3 best offers and then go down to dealerships to see who will give you best price on your trade in. Do not mention trade.... work on getting your lowest sale price of new suv. when you go down to dealers tell each one you decide to trade your vehicle in. Most dealers in NY use Galves and some use nada for used pricing. i would print out Edmunds and kbb used price to counter there offer.

  • Has anyone had a good experience and price with a dealer in Seattle/ Tacoma for a CRV 2013/2014 EXL?

  • once again, good advice Brian. As a follow up so I'm clear, you say take my 3 best offers to the dealerships, tell them I've decided to trade in & see who gives me the best trade in price. I get that, but since all my dealings up until this point will have been via email with the Internet Manager, am I to have this conversation about trade in with the Internet Manager? If so, am I wrong in assuming Internet Mangers are often off-site. Could I not have that initial conversation about trade in via email with Internet Manager once I'm satisfied I've got my lowest price on the car I want to buy? I do realize someone at dealership will ultimately need to physically inspect my car before giving me a trade in price, I'm just looking to keep to a minimum the number of times I have to drive to a dealership. As you can probably guess, this is going to be my first voyage buying a car with a trade in (yep, there's still a few of us "newbies" out there when it comes to trade ins) so some basic 101 in approach at the dealerships once I've got my 3 lowest email offers would be a help. Thanks for the heads up on dealer used car pricing here in NY.

    agree... Once you nail down your best price with dealer 1 try to get dealer 2 and 3 to match or come close to that selling price. After you have 2 maybe 3 good prices contact internet managers and tell them you have decided to trade in your car. who should you see when getting to there dealership. Start with lowest price dealer. If he gives you a bad trade price walk away tell them you need to think about it. Go to next dealership get his trade in price etc etc. Alot of times a dealer will give you a great new car price and a fair trade in value. Make the best deal of them or sell private. Print out and bring with you Edmunds and kbb used car pricing to dealerships. show him your not a herb you want a fair price or you walk. Remember the dealer is looking to make a few buck off you so consider that with your trade in.... especially if your getting a good new car deal. What also helps you is.... The trade in price gets deducted off sale price of SUV lowering your tax table.

    good luck post how you did..

  • We decided to buy 2013 Honda CR-V EX-L in Urban Titanium with leather seats (no navi) AWD.
    We paid $26900 + NY sales tax + plates/paperwork with $500 down at 0.9%. Our monthly payment is going to be around $505.

    We were considering CR-V EX polished metallic with grey interiors but it looked quite unattractive. The price was $24500 + sales + registration/fees. The payment would have been around $464.

    Our Fit got totaled few ago by some maniac when it was parked outside house. We get an outstanding load of $5500 on it. Luckily we got all the money money back.

    Westchester County, NY.

    ADVICE

    Do not go to a dealer and demand the price right off the bat or you will get rejected. You have to work the price, be friendly, find a nice dealer and eventually you will get it. Since I am from Europe I do not have problems with it but I saw a lot of Americans behaving like [non-permissible content removed].... when buying a car. It is your money and you can always walk out.
  • I paid $21,500 + ttl for Honda CRV LX 2WD 2013.
    Is this a good deal?

    Your deal is $743 below dealers invoice price. Not the best deal and by far not the worst deal..

    Enjoy your new Crv

    Hey Brian, what's a good invoice number for 2013 EX and EX-L? I'm going to start emailing dealers on Monday for a purchase between Friday - Sunday.

    1300 to 1700 should be your target price to buy a 2013 and almost 10 month old model CRV... On jan 1 2014 if your CRV is stolen or deemed totaled in a accident your insurance will pay out for a 1 year old model not a 3 month old one. So what is the depreciation value of a 1 yr old CRV?? I would figure at least 1500 or more the first yr.

    If i could get a 2014 at invoice price i would buy it over a 2013 for 1k below. If i could get close to 1500 below on a 2013 i might buy it. If my scenario does not come into play than buying that 2013 for 1200 below was a good buy. The first 3yrs is when a vehicle depreciates the most.

    Dont forget to account for dealerships doc fee charges..

    If a dealer has doc fee's of 300 dollars and you buy a 2013 for 1200 below invoice that means your really buying price was 900 below. To counter that charge if dealers has high doc fee's.... is to add it onto your asking price so its a wash when your finalizing the whole deal..

    If i want 1200 below and the dealerships doc fees are 300 i tell dealer for 1500 below invoice i buy that moment. If he starts with thats a low price you mention to him the things i spoke about
    Its a 10 month old model ,,, new2014's ones are on the lots
    your dealerships doc fee's are xxx

    Supply and demand will play a big part in pricing. If dealership has only 1 or 2 of your model he might not want to sell vehicle that cheap to you knowing another uneducated buyer he will sucker into paying alot more.. In that case look to buy a 2014 for invoice price or alittle below .

    good luck post your deal when done.

  • Looking to Buy in Northern California, Nevada.
    Need some Prices paid.
    Thanks
  • too much I made an offer 26.800 inclusive of dest fee 800$( but not tax tag etc) and they said they would match that at another dealer as well in florida which seems about the same as other states.
  • $26900 including destination fees here.
  • Hello Brian

    Just wondering does any one sells below $ 1,000 to $1700 off on invoice price for CRV ?. I am not sure

    here in phoenix inventory is so low every dealer has a maximum of one or two crv's in their lot.

    If I consider $$$ of on invoice and add back doc fees you may get it at invoice price not less than that and on the top of it dealer installed options costing anywhere between $ 1000 to $ 2000 in all cases they just refused to sell vehicle without them,

    Options like your paint protection, alarm etc., running into couple of thousands.

    one more thing one of the dealer told me that flex cash is back in this weekend it is $ 500 for Honda financing.

    hope this helps

    Hi bob

    Yes alot of dealers have sold for 1000 to 1700 below invoice price.. The problem that you are finding in AZ. is Supply and demand on 2013 models. When dealer have very little or just one vehicle in stock they will not sell it for xxx price. They know someone will buy that model from now til Dec, at dealers price. Thats how this car buying game works.

    You have 3 choices

    1- take the lowest price offer on a 2013 model making your best deal at the end of this month.
    2- Buy/ order a 2014 model as close to invoice price as possible.
    3- Travel out of state to find better pricing.

  • Is this a good deal on the EXL 4WD from legend leasing. $309/month, $1500 damage waiver included and No Disposition Fee. Add Tax, $595 bank fee & DMV Fess. Includes 12k miles per year.

    Assuming i don't want to keep the car after the least, and being that it is 0 down - does monthly payment look reasonable? Didn't call them for breakdown of the numbers yet, but just wanted to get a general idea from people.
