  • I provided my opinion based on experience here at this message: http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.ef11a94/12226#MSG12226.

    Similar to you unfortunately, there are none to be found on the lots in my region.

    breakdown:

    -. price 22456.02
    -. license fee: 42.75
    -. dealer's business license tax: 39.00
    -. title fee: 39.00
    -. va tax: 688.23
    -. processing fee: 485.00

    -. rebate: -750
    ------
    total = 23000


    Apples to apples (so others can compare it) we're talking
    22456.02 + 485 - 750 = 22191.02

    Invoice is 23414 less ~480 holdback, so I'm guessing that 750 "rebate" is a super secret Honda incentive and the dealer's "profit" is whatever his bonus is.

    I was wondering what Northern Virginia dealership you got this price from.We went to Pohanka in stafford and the lowest was $23369 plus all the fees.

    That seems like a great deal! Any tips on how to get the dealers to agree to that price? Did you finance the car and do you think that rebate money came from financing?

    Looks like we can add the dealer's business license tax: 39.00 to the processing fee: 485.00 = 524 dealer/doc fees

    GREAT "apples-to-apples" post!
    Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!

    A dealer also just mentioned the $750 flexcash/rebate to me here in NJ so I think it is likely that that is the figure. I would recommend financing (if you have good credit and can), even if you pay off the car in full immediately (make sure your terms have non prepayment penalty). This way the dealer gets his rebate and we get a much better price.

    Also, with the financing of .9, it makes sense to take the money you would have put towards the car and make a payment on a higher interest loan you have out there, like a mortgage or another car loan. Thats what we are doing, paying down a mortgage instead and financing the car. Our original plan was to pay for the car in cash, but this seems to make more financial sense.

    Dealer's business license tax, now that is a unique technique for the dealer to increase its profit. Considering this unique fee along with a hefty documentation fee, this might be one dealer to avoid.

    Could any one let me know the price for Honda Accord LX in Maryland? Thank you.
  • I realize there's Honda's Really Big Spring Event going on, but if you walk into a dealership, they will openly insist there's zero cash back incentive for new CRV purchases.

    That said, why not wait until the novelty wears off? What's so special about April?
  • 2013 CRV EX AWD for $24,400 before tax, titles, doc fees.

    Includes tint and one coating of paint protection.

    Is this a good price?

    Hi,

    I am in New York, I plan to take bus to Boston area, buying from the Weymouthhonda dealer recommended in this forum. I found their price is much lower than what I got in NY/NJ area.

    What I got is:
    Honda CR-V, AWD EX standard option
    Sale price: 24,564.25 (including $830 destination fee)
    Documentation fee: $239

    I will pay tax and registration fee at New York, get my license plate, and bring to the dealer when I get the car. I need to pay refundable $500 deposit to finalize the deal.

    Do you guys think this is a good deal or not? Thank you very much for your feedback.

    looks like Weymouth is selling you the ex model for 815 below invoice.
    what i would suggest is on april 29th i would call several dealerships in your area asking them to match Weymouth honda price for the sale that day. If no dealers are comming close to that offer call boston dealer on the 30th and give him a 500 refundable deposit for CRV.

    Friendly
    New Rochelle
    Yonkers
    Bayridge
    are just a few to contact on the 29th.
    Stick with calling the NY dealerships there doc fee's are only 75 dollars..

    Here is how i breakdown your deal from Weymouth
    Selling price...24,564
    below Invoice....815
    minus doc fee's.239
    total................576 below invoice
    round trip from boston = 12 hr day
    gas ,,,tolls,,,,,food.........100== 476 below invoice

    if you could get at worst case any local dealer to sell you this car for 575 below invoice your way ahead of the game without all that time travel etc..

    I bought the Accord in Feb and i to was going to Weymouth but on the last day of that month i found 3 deals comparing to Weymouth.

    good luck way all your factors first.

    I have a pending offer of $26,600 (includes destination) for a 2013 EX L AWD. Less Nav and DVD. Does NOT include Tax/Title/Doc. Also includes splash guards (~$199) and body molding (~$250).

    Can anyone confirm that this is a descent price before I close the deal.

    Thanks in advance, Greg

    Hey Greg,

    Can help you out with the add-ons as they're already part of my interest: priced molding & guards at 158+58+shipping online (nominal DIY... sites give links to Honda's pdf install manuals) Guards are simple, molding a little more involved but straightforward.

    As far as price: read some of the past month or two of posts. Find the invoice online, figure out where you are relative to invoice (+ or -) and then post the number back here.

    Hi all, Honda just announced a recall on the 2012 and 2013 CR-V's and I was wondering if this has any affect on prices? Can this be used to negotiate a lower price than usual?

    So, just wanted to post my deal. I am picking up the car on Friday, so I will try to remember to confirm the details of the transaction here.

    Price of the car including destination: $22,286
    Document fee $214
    That got me to my desired price of $22,500 total cost from the dealer set prices.
    Add taxes at NJ 7% and title/tire fees somewhere around $300 and my out the door price including everything is $24,377.12

    What do you guys think? The dealer is very local to me (about 20 minutes away) so that was also worth something. It is Coast Honda in Wall and I dealt with Chris, who was pretty straightforward and easy to deal with over the phone.

    I am financing and that may have helped to get this price.
    Also, they had to bring in the car from another dealership (my girls wanted white) and they still gave me the price.
