    I have been web shopping 6 dealers, all within reach of me, No. Cal and Sacramento, CA.

    $25,000 OTD, is the best the online sales managers have come up with, without much fight.

    This includes everything, destination, TTL, you name it. Two immediately sent this number out, four or five others are at least 1000 more, looking to haggle, I suppose.

    Two weeks ago I thought this was a great deal, now I am starting to wonder.

    How about some more input, recent, detailed quotes. I need to buy on June 10th.

    thanks!!!!

    We had a terrible experience at Frank Leta Honda today. Started with talking to the internet manager. Said he'd sell at invoice plus offer dealer cash incentive of up to $1500. Went in ready to buy. They didn't have the model in the colors we were hoping, but did have it in AWD. After a couple hours of negotiation, and me trying to walk out several times, and requesting our keys back for 45 minutes they did not meet our terms. What a waste of time. I had to follow the internet manager back to the office to get our keys and credit card back!!! I felt like a hostage. They offered us another price outside the office door as we were walking out. We had to leave, and were exhausted from the whole experience! After leaving we crunched the numbers and called back a couple hours later. We spoke with the internet manager, and my husband told him our absolute maximum price (what they offered as we were leaving before), and he said to come in. We drive to the dealership for the second time, and once inside are told us they can no longer offer that price!! Not a good experience, and I want others to be aware. STAY AWAY FROM FRANK LETA HONDA IN O'FALLON, MO!!!

    Before you went in the 2nd time you need something black and white to show the offer with detailed breakdown and stock & vin numbers.
    That is a lot better, but still after you came down they always can say they made a mistake and not to honor and switch you to another offer that makes more profit.

    I had a similar, bad experience with an internet salesperson 5 years ago at Frank Leta as well. We had agreed on a price for a CRV EX, but it was not on his lot. It took him a week to get it, and when he got it, it had more equipment than I had agreed to. It was crap like wheel locks, mud flaps, and the cargo tray. It added something like $500 to the price of the car. I yelled and screamed, and I think they took like $100 off. I should have walked away, but I wanted the car, and they got their profit margin back. Later, I found out that they had transfered the car from a dealer that was closer to my home that would have been easier to work with. Don't know if it was the same guy, but they were playing games too.

    folks, I have question about the title if i financed the CR-V.

    I purchased the car April 11th, and i financed with Chase bank.

    i was told actually the car is co-owed by the bank and myself. but also i remembered the dealer told me i will receive a title by mail later. but i did not receive until now.

    I want to ask actually how this will be? and will i have a copy of the title?

    Thanks!

    HELLO CUBIESWIN! Wow, what a incredible discount you've got?! Are sure this is right! I am here in Alexandria VA. After shopping around for more than 5 different places, the lowest internet offer i receive is 24,528 + TTL. I am trying to get them to sell it for 25k drive-out price but none of them agree.
    Let me know. Thanks

    Every state is a little different. For Massachusetts, the RMV will hold the title electronically with the record of you and the bank as lien. When you pay in full to the bank, bank will release the lien and notify RMV then RMV will mail you the title in a couple of days. What you have is just the registration showing your name, addr and the lien holder which is the bank.

    20,312 + TTL should be the price of new LX 4WD, not EXL 4WD...
    for the new EXL 4WD the price 24,312 + TTL sounds more right.

    State dependant. Read up on DMV regulations for your particular state. There is no national DMV code.

    $23,147 sale price

    Residual $15,472 (61%)
    .0025 money factor- which equals 4.9%

    rich,

    I plan on buying next week, in No. California. I want to make sure I understand this correctly.

    CRV EX AWD for 23,700 OTD???

    That is better than $1000 lower than what I expect to pay, where are you, what dealership did you purchase from?

    Thanks

    I seem to be getting around $21K for CRV LX AWD with no options. In normal times, this seems like a decent price. However, it is hard to justify this when some other dealers/manufacturers are selling cars at way under invoice.

    Many other manufacturers are giving substantial incentives/rebates, leading to prices several grand below invoice. But Honda prices seem to be holding up.

    Is anyone else getting the same impression with Honda? Or do you think there is significant reductions in price we can get from bargaining?

    I people are willing to pay the current price, why would Honda lower it?

    If you had a business selling widgets, and you sold them for $10 a piece, and you had a line of customers wanting to buy them at $10 apiece. While your competition sold them for $8 a piece. Would you lower the price now, or wait until the customers stopped buying yours, and then lower the price?
  • glitch1glitch1 Posts: 25
    Yea, that's the whole point. When I said Honda's prices are holding up, that is a reflection of the market. Not a complaint, just an observation, and the same observation you have made regarding widgets.

    Does anyone have a idea when the prices will be dropping on the CRV's... The 2010's should be coming out soon to make 2009's prices drop.
  • richbf2richbf2 Posts: 73
    Hi Eric! I am in Alexandria, Va. The dealership is Landmark Honda.
    Yes, mine is 23,700 OTD. :) Keep in mind, dealerships will have additional charge(s) to maximize profit. Negotiate on drive-out price and be firm on your decision. Good luck!
