    is this with or without NAVI? And does this include destination fee of $710?

    If it's without NAVI you're right at invoice with the high dealer fee.

    Invoice on Edmunds for a model with NAVI is $27,661 not including the $710 destination charge. if this is your model your $2K under...

    Point being, if it's with NAVI, please let me know and pass along the dealer name and sales person. I'll be there tomorrow to buy.
  • We just purchased a Honda CRV 2010 LX 4WD for $21,425 plus $199 accessories (Door edge guard) plus TTL (Oregon $322) in the Portland area.

    This seems to be a very good price. They claim to have made a mistake with my quote, but they honored the price anyway. Seems like 2010 LX 4wd generally go for over $22K plus TTL from what I see on Edmunds.

    I do have a question on whether I got a decent deal on an extended warranty though? I know dealer offered warranties are often bad deals, but after reviewing it with my wife, it seemed like a good idea, so I went for it.

    Basically for $1275, I got 7 years/70K bumper to bumper coverage (everything except light bulbs, break pads, tires). It also includes roadside assistance and rental car reimbursement. It allows me to take it to any ASC Certified repair shop for warranty. Payments are made directly to the repair shop (over the phone 24 hours a day). It seems to be more comprehensive than the standard Honda warranty.

    This is with Landcar Agency through Larry Miller dealership. After thinking about it, I feel like perhaps I did not need to buy this, and that I should cancel it? But at that price, it seems like it would offer some peace of mind, and I do get to cancel my AAA service (which over 7 years would save me $600 for me and my wife). So minus AAA savings, I am paying about $675 for an extended wrap bumper to bumper warranty which seems like a decent deal.

    I can still cancel it so I am wondering if I made a good decision on it? Thanks for any insight on this!
  • well, i cancelled the extended warranty. After thinking about it, even if it was a good deal, it put us over budget.

    Overall, I think I had a very good experience at the dealership.
  • Well, I've got one quote I THINK is about as good as I'm going to get during this time frame. Of course, I can always wait, but getting tire of that too :D

    I've got a OTD price of $26,873.36. I've got 2 other quote funny thing they both came from the same dealership. One person quoted $554 more but the second only was about $273 more -- both from the same place, just different salesperson. What do y'all think -- something fishy going on?

    I'm going this weekend to take a look at the first offer of $26k to see what they got on the lot. I'm wondering does anyone think it's worth it to try to beat the first quote? From all that I've read on this forum -- I think it's sound good...but hey, what do I know? I've never bought a new car before...well, never with the new car smell!! :blush:

    Any feedback would be nice.

    1st give us 2010 exl price by itself as never go with out the door price since dealer has wrong calculator(trust me) and added warranty so 1st go with base invoice price then u calculate what is worth it ...people get better deal if u go with fleet department and u can get invoice price (Edmund's.com) but don't expect below invoice price for 2010 exl as they still have 2009 left and don't go with what people are paying for on Edmund's.com as that is never true.....always hunt from email back and forth ..until u get best price....no personal information until u get your figure.....hope this will help

    thanks

  • That sounds like the price for the vehicle itself must be right around $25,100, if so that sounds like a good deal.

    Bought a 2010 CRV EX 4W.D. The final cost to me was $ 8000.00 Took my 07 CRV 4 WD in for the trade (48K miles) they offered 16K The cost then would have been @ 9800 to me. I refused the deal. Told salesman I could afford 8000. as I want to pay cash. He came back with an offer of 8848.40. called him back and told him this was not do able. Called me back and we did the deal for the 8K..Just to check the price, I went to another dealer and took my trade and he also appraised the 07 for 16K but this dealership wanted 11577.00 Needless to say I did not even think about negotiating this price.. Figured it was a waste of time. Suburban Honda Michigan does not want to sell cars (i guess)

    Based on the trade in, you paid $24,000 for the 2010 EX AWD, OTD.

    What was wrong with the 2007 that you wanted out of it and willing to pay $8000 to get the same?
  • Thanks for the heads up! The base quote plus destination fee of $710 is $25066. It is a few hundred dollars less invoice base on Edmunds. This quote was from the internet manager. I know this sounds so wussy, but its hard to overcome my desire for the best deal with hating :P to negotiate!!

    Anyone, I thank you for the suggestion and will send my lowest offer to another dealership and see what they'll offer. My question is this: I really hate to go in person to negotiate is it possible/reasonable to negotiate via emails? Or I'm stuck with having to go in and deal with the haggling?

    You can negotiate by E_Mail (some people are to busy to deal with salesperson for an hour or two) Plus if they don't give you the price you want, it's a waste of time. If you can keep the OUT THE DOOR PRICE under 27K for the E XL that sounds pretty good from what I have seen.. Good Luck (remember the dealer is not your friend) he is what the title implies DEALER... keep us updated
  • You don't have to go to the dealership necessarily to get the deal done, a lot depends on the dealership that you are working with. Standard practice is to have you come in to negotiate the final price but if you already know what price you're willing to pay then you can request a written price quote asking for a breakdown of charges.
  • Hi everyone,

    I've been reading the posts for the past week and everyone has been very informative about their prices and helping me get a feel for what the market is going for. But for the few postings of the out the door price (including taxes) ... man...it just seems like California taxes are high (no suprise) but REALLY high, does this sound right?

    For example, it seems a challenge to get a 2010 crv EXL in urban titanium or red pearl. I did find a few dealers, and recieved the following quotes (without nav packages):

    26,100 price or 29,230 with taxes out the door (he has it in stock, red is second choice though which is good still for me)
    another one said for 26,500 but he has to get it up from North California and I will get a 600 extra delivery charge, and would be about 29,600 out the door (with taxes). But he can get the exact color I want Urban Titanium
    One might be able to get a Titanium from up north, but i'll have additional costs to move it down here to los angeles, but he wants me to buy it first, then the CRV will get delivered, which I dont feel comfortable with doing, 26,100 price but i'll have a 600 delivery fee from up north (on top of hte normal california destination charge) as well as taxes
    One dealer had a black one for a good price i think for 25,456 without taxes included. But Black is a distant third choice for me.

    Any thoughts on these numbers? Also does the taxes sound about right? I figure i was going to pay like 1500 or 2000...i guess 3000 was on the upper end on the extra fees, titles and taxes.

    I guess there were out the door prices given much lower earlier in the previous posts, and I know it varies state by state, but just close to 30K on an EXL is a bit uncomfortable for me, though I guess its just the reality of the taxes where I am.
  • OMG, you guys are right!! I decided to bite the bullet and flat out (but politely) told them what my lowest offer was and what they could do about it. I was worry that they wouldn't want to negotiate through emails, but so far it looks like one of the dealership is trying.

    Either way, I feel better knowing that I tried at least. Phew! I was even begging the ladies at my work place to borrow their husband or boyfriend to go in with me!! :P

    I'll let you guys know how it goes. Again, I'm very appreciative of the responses so far! Thanks!

    I could give you my opinion of why your taxes are so high. But I think you know why!The reason for moving the 07 CRV EX ( 1. price the way I calculate is that trading in a 50K mile vehicle out of warranty, plus I have had problems with this vehicle. Have had it in the dealership at least 5 times,not to mention differential fluid changes 3 times. So paying 8K and of that $1400.00 is sales tax, of which a good portion will be returned on state taxes at the end of the year. I figure 900.00 to 1100.00 will be refunded. So taking that in account the vehicle cost me @ 7000.00 Divide that by 36 months =@190.00 per month not a bad lease with no money down and turned in with almost @50K miles..

    not to mention differential fluid changes 3 times.

    Just an FYI: Differential fluid is a maintenance item and will need to be changed on the new one as well. It is good for about 15,000-20,000 miles.
  • tkay2tkay2 Posts: 36
    Thats what they say, but you know I never had a vehicle that that needed to be done. The did change it for free (maintenance book says every 80K I think) Even though I had it in several times they did finally got it right. But why is it that the diff. fluid lasts only 15K?.....
  • I am in the market to buy CR-V, have you bought one? can you share the price and dealer? I am in Howard county, MD. I am debating between Accord LX-P and CR-V LX. How do you guys think? I want a safer car and more internal space. From the price, I get quote for 2010 Accord LX-P for $18390. Do you guys get a good price for CR-V LX? thanks. techtickler@gmail.com
  • highlander123,
    That would depend on whether you want 2WD or 4WD.
    I got a 4WD LX CRV 2010 model for $21,425 (base plus destination fee) plus TTL. Invoice is around $21,900 (base plus destination fee), so I would think you should be able to get a CRV 2010 model at around invoice or less.
  • Offered quote of $26,800 (including destination) + tax/t/l. San Francisco area Honda. What do you guys think?
  • Through autobrag, I received a lowest quote of $26,399+TTL ( $27,500 OTD) from Fredricksburg, VA honda delear. Is this a good deal? Please advise.
