2013 and earlier-Honda CR-V Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • mmommo Posts: 3
    Just signed the papers on a 2014 silver ex-l fwd in houston for $25995 + destination. I was originally considering a 2013 for $24376 + destination and needing to finance with Honda. I asked the 2013 dealer to match or beat the other price. He said that 25995 was a price for a 2013 and he'd be happy to sell a 2013 for 25995. It was a no brainer as the 2013 dealer offered a 2014 for 26610 + destination. I saw the 2014 for $25995 only had 2 miles on it with plastic still on everything including the wheels. Hope this helps.
  • MMO, was that price after incentives? If $500+500, so basically $26995 + destination + title etc?

    Wallbobbyc, I don't believer there are any incentives on the 2014. That was just the straight up price. So it came out to $25995+ destination + tt&l.

    I'm getting a used 12 CRV EXL AWD for 21 k OTD with 19 K miles...Can someone let me know if this is a good deal?

  • Just bought a 2013 EX-L AWD (*no* nav or rear entertainment)

    Price of vehicle: $27,661 (includes destination charge of $863)
    Less loyalty incentive: -$500
    Less flex cash: -$500
    Administrative fee: $199
    Title and Lien recording fee: $17

    Final cost: $26,877
    So this is basically $1860 under invoice+destination charge, when you factor in the incentives. Or $1000 under invoice not considering the destination charge.

    This doesn't include sales tax or registration or any of that.

    They tried to charge me $460 for mud flaps and door guards, which they said they "put on all their vehicles, it's standard". I said that was nice, but they could remove them because I wasn't going to pay for them. They backed down after the second or third time I said it and I got them free. Dumb.

    The first dealership I tried wouldn't budge from 28,100, and that didn't include the destination charge and whatever other BS they were going to try to add on, so that was a waste of time.

    Nice! I had the same experience. I got a quote over email for a price, and showed it to the dealer that is closest to me and they still wouldn't budge. Ok, I can drive 45 minutes for $1200.

    vehicle selling price $23,571
    sales tax 7% $1649.97
    NJ tire tax fee $7.50
    doc fee $359.00
    reg/title $69.50 (transferred old plates and old reg was still active if it makes any difference)

    total OTD/Delivered $25,657

    No incentives on 2014, no 0.9% financing, no loyalty $500. Only on 2013. I paid $5,657 more than this car is really worth. Keep in mind value for the money no matter what sales tell you. LX isn't worth that much.

    "extras" i received for "free": no stupid ugly pin stripes, "protection package" includes free mud guards, rubber mats and rear cargo area lining. Cheap soft quality rubber. I can get better quality from walmart.

    The "package" i would prefer is wheel locks and color matched door edge guard. Manager i dealt with went to check with himself if he could do this "deal" several times and returned saying his boss manager said i have to pay $340 extra for the "package". At first he said he'd "work with me" on the package because its the last day and they needed to sell many cars. They "lose" on the price but make up for it by volume. Doesn't matter if i get invoice price. "Next _____ will pay $7000 over..." so i started walking and then the manager went to check with himself again. I asked why he needed to check with the manager if he's the manager. "That's right. I don't need to check with anybody. I'll give you the package for 'free'" LOL

    I didn't get a good deal or a good car.
  • > I didn't get a good deal or a good car.

    Why did you buy it then? I've read a bunch of your posts and you seem super pissed off that you have to buy this car. Is your spouse making you buy it? Bizarre.

  • We just got ours today after negotiating at a bunch of different places for a period of couple of weeks, both over internet and in person.

    OTD in California - $29,500 (including 8.75% sales tax, license, doc, tire, efile fees)

    MSRP : $29,875
    Invoice : $28,094
    Purchase Price : $26,761

    So we had a savings of $833 off invoice plus $500 in flex cash.

    Hope that helps. This was in Bay Area, Larry Hopkins Honda in Sunnyvale. I thought it was a decent deal. Wife is really happy with the car, so I am happy :)

    I believe you, 110%.

    I have been in the market for a new car all month and started really negotiating with dealers in the past couple of weeks.

    Last week, I received an email from Planet Honda in NJ stating that they were selling a 2013 CRV EX AWD for 23,200. Planet Honda was a little too far for me to get to so I started shopping around using that price as a starting point for negotiations.

    Open Road Honda in Edison NJ was the only dealer willing to undercut Planet Honda. They came in at $22,900 (plus accessories delivery and installation charges)

    vehicle selling price (with all extras) $24134.00
    sales tax 7% $1895.88
    NJ tire tax fee $7.50
    doc fee $398.00
    reg/title $282.00

    Total OTD/Delivered $26427.88

    We took advantage of the 0.9% / 60 month finance agreement. I financed most of it (over $24,000) and over the life of the loan Honda Financial will receive a hefty $600.00 LOL.

    Dealing with Open Road was a great experience; they negotiated when most other local companies wouldn't and as long you have fair expectations going into negotiations, you will enjoy the experience of dealing with this company.

    Hello - Can someone help us here?
  • Purchased one on Friday in NY area.

    $26,300 + Tax + DMV

    Called almost 10 dealers in NY/NJ area. No one would go under 26900. Finally one dealer budged on Friday.

    Was not eligible for Conquest cash as I had 2002 Nissan. They claimed they were out of Flex cash (did not believe them).

    Anyway, got one for $1500 under invoice, perhaps could have bargained for couple of hundred more.

    Good luck to every one with your purchase.

    Thank you!
  • This sounds like a very good deal. I live in the same area and wants to buy a similar model. Any additional options? Did you go thru Internet or direct deal with a salesperson?
  • Hello all,

    Just wanted to share the price I paid for the 2013 CRV EX-L FWD. Not sure if it is a great deal but it definitely was a good buying experience Norm Reeves Honda in Cerritos, CA. Thanks to the sales rep Susanne Yim.

    Sale Price: $25,998 (including destination fee)
    Flex Cash: -$500 (through Honda financing)
    Didn't qualify for the conquest discount of $500 as I didn't own the qualifying brands
    +TTL & Doc fee

    Hopefully this data helps another prospective buyer.
  • Brian, first of all thanks for keeping this forum going. It was of great help during my purchase.

    I bought it from White Plains Honda. Here are some impressions of the dealerships in the area.

    Yonkers Honda - the internet guy was rude on the phone.
    Curry Honda & Tarrytown Honda - just wished me luck in getting the price I was looking for (1200-1500 below invoice). Curry Honda sent couple of long (canned) emails explaining why dealers in NJ are bad and how it is more expensive to purchase in NJ. Never quote a their own price.
    DCH Paramus - really good, very close to matching the price, but did not close the deal.
    New Rochelle Honda - Went there in person on Friday. The manager came and told me that my price was too low and they will lose money at that prices.

    Walked out and made unplanned stop at White Plains Honda on the way back home. They gave the price I was looking for.

    On Saturday, New Rochelle Honda left three messages on my voice-mail. Well, it just happened to be 31st of the month :-)

    So Brian - your method works!!! Thank you.
