    Very good pricing. NY/NJ area will not sell that low.. Our area's market is no where near MD and N. VA pricing some of the best in the country especially the Accords, Civic's and Pilots

    Toyota.... Camry and Corrolla are out selling Honda in my area due to heavy discounts.

  • Hello all,

    I am at Dallas, TX and looking for a new 2014 Honda CR-V LX FWD. I was quoted 22,196.00 OTD for this model. The dealer claimed that the price includes Destination and Handling and Dealer Added Equipment. Equipment consists of: 3 year paint and fabric warranty, Honda splash guards, Honda cargo tray, window tint, hand-painted pin stripe, door/edge molding and Honda wheel lock. They probably used financing discount and recent graduate discount, $500 each already. Does this price sound good? What other factors should I mention to bring the price down? Thank you very much!

    Tell dealer you do not want his added overpriced accessories in your 2014 model. Let then find you another one. unless you want all that stuff.

    the 3yr paint warranty is a bs charge. You have a Clearcoat finish on your paint. Fabric warranty r they kidding.. dont be fooled. The other features are nice but only if you want them.

    Go to cheap honda parts you could see how cheap mudguards, door edge, wheel locks etc are for the CRV model..... Paper pin stripe you could buy a roll for 7 dollars. window tint 100 to 150.

  • Hi,

    I am in Houston, TX and looking for a new 2014 Honda CR-V LX FWD as well. The best quote I have received so far is 22,827 OTD without any add-ons. The dealer is claiming that this is his final rock bottom OTD price. Here is the breakdown:

    Selling price: 21,190.99 (including destination charge)
    Taxes: 1,324.44
    Doc Fee: 125
    Vehicle Inventory Tax: 41.87
    License/Inspection/Title: 145

    Can you share the breakdown of the quote you got and dealer's name? Thanks a lot.
  • So then a good price or my target price should be $1,500 below $29,404? ($27,904)

    The lease price New Rochelle quoted me was $359/mo. I'm going to call them this afternoon and see what numbers they're running. I guess I should try to get them to go down to close to $27.9k and then see what the lease comes out to....
  • Can you please identify the dealer?

    I haven't found prices that low in the DC/MD/VA area.

    I assume that these prices require the AHFC financing deals that expire on 01/06/2014 (0.9% for 24 or 36 months). However, there is no early payment penalty if you prefer not to finance...

    I'm curious to know whether a lower 2014 model price is likely before the 01/06/2014 financing deals expire, or at the very end of January.

    An article in Wall Street Journal announced additional year end incentives of $3000 per vehicle if purchased by the end of the 2013 year under certain sales goals. Has anyone received the benefit of the incentives?

  • So I got a lower OTD price today from a different dealer, asking for $22057. It also comes with dealer added equipment and two free oil changes. Selling price is $20,949 while the other one was $21,049. Both of them added TTL on top of this and minus 500. Hope this helps.
  • Thanks Brian. That was very helpful. Although I thought everything was standard (or included as it is). They told me the MSRP is 23775, which is exactly the same as Honda original price+destination. Is OTD price usually the bait to get you to the dealership? Would they increase the price again once I get there? Thank you.
  • Well I got a email agreement from an internet sales manager on my price. But then I asked if I could go down to the dealership and sign the papers and he said "oh I'm leaving work for the day". I asked him to put it in writing and now he's not responding to my emails. Plus he never called me even though I gave him my number. Sounds like a no go on this deal...

    I was wondering how all the dealerships are going to sell for less at the end of the month once the "flex cash" runs out, but now that I'm hearing about this $3000 incentive from Honda, I guess the $500 will be well offset. Would the dealer also get the $3000 if they lease a car?
  • Thanks a lot for the information. Is the $500 reduction the financing incentive? Maybe I should consider driving to Dallas to make the purchase if it can save me $800.

    Can you also share the names of the dealership that provided the quotes?

    Save your self time and effort.. there is no reason to ask any dealership for lease numbers unless that dealership has come close to your target price.

    Best to call 15 or more dealerships telling each dealership you will be buying at the end of this month or sooner if your target price is meet.

    Ny / Nj market price is alot higher than other area'a so keep that in mind. 1500 below might not be obtainable on a 2014. buying near the end of the month will give you the best chance to hit your target price.

    Go to the CRV leasing forum and ask the Carman what the residual, money factor, and cap costs are on your lease model. also post miles and yrs desired. Once you have the correct leasing numbers for your model work them off your lowest price.

    Once the Car-man gives you the lease numbers you will be armed and ready to play hardball with these dealerships. Use the Info and tactic's i posted to get the best deal.

    Target price..... 500 to 1500 below invoice for a 2014 CRv in NY/Nj plus any incentives/ rebates that apply to you..

    Keep on negotiating. At a price of 500 below invoice 21,553- 500 = 21,053 you would still be giving back 300 dollars in doc fe charges to that Nj dealership. Email more dealerships with a target price of 800 below invoice plus any incentives and rebates that apply to you.

    tell each dealership you will buy that moment if they meet your price of

    ...........................invoice= 21,553
    minus.....................................800.....below invoice
    total sale price ...................20,753 plus dest charge of 830

    even at this price your deal is actually 500 below cause dealers in Nj have doc fee's of 300 to 500 dollars.

    Try to make a deal with the dealerships that have the 500 dollar flex cash if you finance thru the honda corp..

    email these NJ dealerships with i buy right know for 800 below invoice.. Auto-sport, Hamiltion, DCh Paramus, garden state, paul miller,

    after you make your offer just sit back and wait til the end of the month making your best deal at 800 or very close to it... Play the game let these dealerships compete for your business. a un educated buyer wont play out this month usually jumps on a bad offer from dealers. dealers prey on the weak and folks who do not know how to negotiate.

    Jersey dealers are slick there entitled offer is at invoice or a little below. then they will counter with 200 belo. as the negotiation goes on and they think you know what your doing prices will be lowered.

    This is what i want to hear from each honest dealership at months end..

    Mr Brian... this is our lowest offer that we can sell the vehicle you want.
    Call several NY dealerships doc fee's are only 75 dollars.

    Stay away from PLaza, Paragon Honda they lie like rugs. Terrible dealerships.

    there are 12 honda dealerships on Long island. google them

    Brian, thank you so much for your detailed reply. I really appreciated.

    I was looking around to search for the invoice price of $21,553, and got a feeling that the invoice price you gave is for 2014 CR-V LX 2WD. Until I went back to my post, I realized I have made a mistake - I wrote LX 2WD, but it should be LX AWD. Sorry about that, the pressure is really too much :)

    Is $24,498.75 a good OTD price for a new 2014 CR-V LX AWD? Since it is 22,724-21,495=1229 below the invoice.

    About Finance and pay cash after the OTD is set, which option can make the price even lower?

    And can I pay cash by swiping multiple credit cards if I got no interest on the credit card balance?

    I'm planning to buy 2014 CR-V EX AWD. so fat the best quote i got is 26,400 OTD. What would be best offer for this model. I have seen 25K OTD in this forum. Is it realistic price to get ? Or do I need to do hard bargain ?

    Thanks

    Your numbers once again are wrong. OTD pricing vary's from state to state due to state taxes , dmv fee's, and doc fee charges.. How you gauge a good deal is buy knowing the Selling sale price with dest/charge included and what that dealers doc fee charges are ? Again taxes and tags vary from state to state and would only be of interest to someone in your buying state if you provide them with the correct tax and doc fee numbers etc.

    LX awd invoice = 22,773

    with dest/charge....830.........total 23,553.

    You want to be in that 800 to 1500 below invoice range for a good Dec price.

    Honda has a good finance rate at 2.9%

    Check out Penn fed credit union 72 month at 1.9%

    Finding a dealership that is offering flex cash rebate of 500 for financing thru honda is your best bet to knock another 500 off your bill of sale.

  • Hi Vikas,

    Please let me know

    OK, followup on buying a CR-V in the Atlanta area: Thank you to everyone here who gave me good info. We bought a new CR-V last week in Atlanta after dealing with a lot of dealer shenanigans. It appears that the Atl area dealers collude on a $700 junk fee and try to say that LoJack, Appearance Package and other stuff is "standard". They try to move the ball so that the fight is about the highly marked up junk and not about the real vehicle price. I finally got the deal by telling the (3rd dealer visited) that there were 7 dealers with acceptable cars in the Atl area. My offer was good for 5 minutes to buy his car at the Edmunds True Market price, take my trade for Edmunds trade in ("good" condition) and no at her costs besides tax. Grudgingly the sales manager did the deal. Oh and they tried to sell a $2400 warranty. After I showed them the post above (that I could get it from any Honda dealer), I bought a 7/80 Hondacare warranty for $1165. Finally they claimed my daughter needed to pay a higher interest rate on the 3 year Honda Finance loan. Until I showed them her 800+ credit score and asked the number for me to call at Honda Finance. She ended up with .9% and got $500 for financing and $500 flex cash for financing thru Honda...true money beyond what she would have gotten without the Honda loan.

    So thank you all. It's a war zone out there. Information is power!

  • Hi Brian,

    so far the best quote I got for 2014 Honda CR-V EX AWD model is 24200(Including Doc fee). TTL tax extra. This includes $500 flex case incentive. The OTD price comes to 25,600. Is this a good deal so should I wait till month end for the better offer ? Please let me know.

    The city is Chicago. The doc fee is 164$(included in the $24200 price).

    The price includes $500 flex cash off.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,763

    gjmg,

    2014 ex awd model Invoice price w/ dest charge = 25,519 this puts you over 1300 below invoice with flex. Make sure the dealership has added the dest/ charge into this equation other wise its not a good deal.

    If you negotiate then buy closer to the end of the month you most likley will get a better price.

    Chicago area 's market is not as good as some of the other area's.

    Thanks Brian, The price includes destination charge. I have checked with more than 10 dealership. Non of them is coming below 24700 + TTL. Only this dealer is providing for 24200+TTL. Is the current price good ? How much more I would be able to negotiate.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,763

    Couple of hundred.. I would not go crazy your area the market is alot tighter. I would only suggest if one/two of the 10 dealers are closer to your house make a pitch to the 2 closest ones. tell dealerships that for 24 k including flex, dest/ charge and your doc fee you buy from them that moment for the sale. Yes or No. Tell other dealerships xxx honda will get your business as soon as you hang up the phone if they wont meet your price. This is how you play the game. You have nothing to lose except buy from the 24.2 k dealership.. Call each dealerships internet manager and speak only to him/ her for the sale that moment..If you decide to call back all ten dealerships you might hit your mark of 24k or lower.. Good luck.
