    angelod,

    Check out weymouth honda's web page.. Sign in and choose your model. Weymouth's lease numbers are pretty acurate up on there web site. Use that number as a guide to pricing. There is always more room to negotiate off that number.

    Anyone manage to get Dealership to give up the 3K they get from honda for each car they sell over last Dec. final numbers? I am wondering if possible to buy at invoice minus $3000?

    If you find the right dealership you may get it on a 2013 model.

    I have been also waiting for the post Christmas timeframe to pull the trigger on a 2014 CR-V LX. I started off with getting quotes using TrueCar, and the best price in San Diego is around 22,100 + TTL. I am waiting for post-Christmas timeframe when I will also take some time off from work, and the timing should line up for the $3000 inventive (which would expire at end of the year).

    My target price is $21,000 + TTL. This basically means I'm hoping to get $1000 off from today's price, if the dealer is motivated to split the profit. I am OK splitting the $3000 between myself, the salesman and the dealership! I assume there are plenty others who are also looking at this opportunity so I would not wait till Dec 31st, which would be the last day of promotion. Keep in mind that dealerships can only get this promotion upon accomplishing the 20% target. Meaning that if they sold 100 cars in Dec 2012, then need to sell 20 more to get the incentive across all 20 of them. There is no incentive for selling that 21st vehicle!

    I am also trying to rope-in a friend of mine who is driving a 12 year old Civic, and that way we could make a 'bundle' offer to make it more interesting to the dealer.

    Comments are welcome, and I hope you share your strategy and targets as well. Especially if there is anyone out there in SoCal I would definitely like to get in touch with you.

    Wish you all Happy Holidays and the very best!

  • @brian125 said: 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.

    HI Brian,

    I have called around 10 dealer. No one even ready to match the current offer 24200+TTL for 2014 EX AWD. I thought of completing the deal since I'm out of town during month end. However the new posts about $3000 incentives confused me. Would I be able to gain substantially more in this if I wait till this month. If the benefit is only couple of hundreds then I prefer to do it now. Please advise.

    Gjmp,

    I read rssd post he has a good plan he would need to get 15 to 20 dealerships involved to see who needs there end of the month sales numbers. The 3000 dollar incentive he is talking about would be rare to find. most dealerships are giving each person a few extra dollars off that incentive to hit there mark. Buying on Dec 30th or 31 is the best time to buy.. In your case you wont be around so you have a good deal on the table. No reason to wait any longer.

    Remember there are other end of the year incentives dealerships are working on not just the 3000 per vehicle. On your deal that we spoke about there is room for a couple of hundred maybe more. The only way to find that out would be to push all your contacted dealerships to the end of the month calling there bluf on pricing.

    Dealerships that qualify will be using the 3000 per vehicle on these category's...

    1- Cut price make additional profit through volume 2- Increase TV and radio ad's to promote sales 3-Use money to help shoppers get financing 4-Increase digital marketing

    Most dealership will only give you a taste of the money.

    The only true dealerships that will due good are the dealerships who have grow 120 % since last year.

    1500 below invoice plus flex cash is a great deal on a 2014 model. This number is what you should be looking to buy or lease by the end of Dec. Most area's wont get this kind of deal.

    You may see good pricing 800 to 1200 below invoice plus flex cash. This would be a very good deal and very do-able at months end.

    You guys should make this your starting or ending target price to buy. Take dealerships high doc fee charges into consideration that cuts into your below invoice price. Always counter a dealerships high doc fee charge by adding his doc fee onto your target price to buy.. this makes that charge a wash on the bill of sale..

    All you folks buying this month you need to figure on your target price to buy and get as many dealerships involved and work your lowest deal by the end of this month.

    good luck

    Brian

    I just purchased my 2014 CR-V LX FWD last weekend in SoCal for $21,080 + TTL. That include the $500 flex cash discount when financing with AHFC. The other dealers I went to will not go below $21,500 or didn't have flex cash available. I thought about waiting closer toward the end of the month also for a better deal but I felt $21,080 was a excellent price for this car already.

  • Yes the destination charges are included.

    Here is how i breakdown your deal. 2wd exl w/ nav invoice price=27,404 dest /charge 830= $28,234 your Quote/selling price w dest charge 27,734. this puts you at 500 below invoice with out options. dealerships doc fee's 399 puts you at 101 below invoice. This is not a good deal

    Your accessories priced at cheap honda parts. Not invoice price but pretty close. 1. - Mud guards...........$69............ 2- wheel locks............$43............... 3- Trailer hitch...........$269.............. 4-harness kit...............$139............. 5- window tint.............$99 ........ 4 windows and back tinted for 100/125dollars.....

    Add these prices on your invoice price then minus your target price off the new numbers and thats what you should be shooting for.. Read my above target prices for end of dec buying..

  • Brian, How much should I offer for the OTD price that includes all that is listed in the quote?

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,441
    edited December 2013

    $28,853 this includes dest/ charge and added accessories without taxes, tags, and dealers doc fee charge. I would minus 1300 hundred of this price. That would put you in this vehicle for 901 below invoice with accessories at almost invoice price not sticker price. Dont forget your giving dealer back $399 dollars in doc fee charges. Call more dealerships. know each dealerships doc fee charge before making a offer to buy ..

    I would contact 10 more dealerships in your area and let each internet manager know you will buy that moment if he meets your price. Your accessories added is what is going to slow down your deal.

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,441

    Remember the important thing with your deal is getting that vehicle for 800 to 1500 below invoice price . Especially with that HIGH DOC FEE. If you have to pay a few more dollars for added accessories for installation use your better judgement. Your best deal may lie with finding a crv with your options already on the vehicle.

  • Brian, is this how much you are figuring? 28853 - 1300 = 27553 +399 +508 = 28460

  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 2,441

    yes correct................... then add your states tax for the final otd number..

    Do not budge off this number with that dealership.... Wait out the month for the lowest price.. then adjusting [ going higher] if nobody will meet your target price of 901 below invoice price. Play the game/ negotiate hard let dealerships chase you for the sale..

    @kevinv25:

    I think you got a great deal already! Could you please share the dealership name and the contact person if it's OK with you?

  • @moonlight88, I have visited a few dealers recently. Rusty Wallis is the first one to offer me the price, then Frank Kent beat it by $100. David McDavid Frisco will also do it at around 22300 OTD. Discounts used are: finance with honda and graduate programs. Thats what Ive got so far. Will go to Rusty Walliks to close the deal tmw, hopefully there is no surprises.

    Just bought 2014 Crv AWD Exl with NaV for 28,550 OTD. Includes, 26,250 of sales price plus 830 of freight charges,plus 200 doc fee, plus roughly 1100 for VA state taxes, plus 95 for tags /title/registration,plus I agreed reluctantly) to pay 99 for wheel locks which they already installed or were charging 40 yo remove it, and I didn't want to haggle over 100 bucks. I think it's about 2500 below invoice. How did I do?

  • Is it possible to have a group deal for CR-V in Socal? I just wonder to ask

  • rssdrssd Posts: 7

    It might work, after all the dealerships want to move more vehicles. What model are you looking for? I'm looking to purchase a 2014 CR-V LX 2WD, and my purchase timeframe is before the end of the year. So that might be 2 of us already. Let us know if you come across a dealer that would cut a better price for a group deal.

  • Just sent you a message with the details. Good luck.

    @rssd said: I think you got a great deal already! Could you please share the dealership name and the contact person if it's OK with you?

  • In the next month or two, I hope to buy a new CRV EX FWD, but it's been years since I've purchased a new car, and I'm rusty. Is the ideal goal to end up with a price below dealer's invoice price AFTER any dealer fees have been added in? What about tax, tag, license...could you expect to remain under invoice after those have been figured in?

    Also, in the comments I looked through, didn't see much price info on the EX FWD. Anyone have any ideas on what a good price might be in North Carolina?

    Just purchased a 2014 Honda CR-V LX 2WD, 'Basque Red Pearl' from my local dealership in San Diego. I paid $21,000 + TTL + $80 doc fee. OTD price was $23029.65 (includes 8% sales tax in San Diego county).

    I did not qualify for any discounts: military, student etc. Also the dealership did not have any 'flex cash'. I did not need financing unless the flex cash helped lower my purchase price, so didn't opt for the Honda financing. $21,000 was my target price and apparently all I had to do was ask at this dealership!

    The black side mirrors and door handles actually look quite good on the Burgundy color!

    This price includes the floor mats, mud-guards a full tank of gas and the first oil change. I got wheel locks installed for an additional $51 at the dealership.

    I don't want to spam unnecessarily, but if anyone is interested I can post the details of dealership and sales person contact. Good luck to everyone in their purchase!

  • Great price, same as what I got. Looks like more dealers are motivated to sell at $21,000 now. Most dealers wouldn't budge from $21,500 just a week ago.
