    I have just purchased a 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L 2WD, from my local dealership here in Los Angeles. OTD price was 28649.40. Had to agree for their financing option with no pre-payment penalties to get that deal. I paid $26380 + $80 + TTL -$500(Cash Back). The price includes free 2 year Value Care Program (VCP X - Synthetic Oil Changes). How did I do on my purchase?

    Also, the dealer is asking me take a 84 month/100000 honda care with zero deductible for $2200. I have some time decide on this. Is this advisable?

    Hello stalls..I am in LA area too. Do you mind sharing the dealership and salesman name? Thx!

  • I live in Michigan and am in the market for CR-V EX 4WD. I have contacted all of the dealerships in a 100 mile radius to get quotes and am waiting to here back. I went into a dealership here in town(Grand Rapids) yesterday and was talking to a Sales rep and he was very adamant about me paying the MSRP 27125 PLUS the dest fee.. I think that is totally ridiculous. For the car he was asking OTD 29500. Is it reasonable for me to try and get 27000 OTD at these dealerships or should I be shooting for lower. The invoice price of this model is 25,520, correct?

    Is this for EX AWD ? 27000 OTD is more than reasonable. You should be able to get better than that. Is that the best quote that you got in 100 miles radius?

  • I know someone was looking for EX 2wd. Just purchased at Gillman in Houston Tx.

    23,000 and will finance AHFC. so flex cash included doc fee 189.--You shouldn't pay more unless comes off price.....

    1300 or so under invoice sounds average but I traded a 2007 Pilot LX and was given 11,500 for trade... 3 other dealers were at 10k

    I purchased my 2012 Accord from Gillman also. They won't add anything other than tint unless you request it and are easy to deal with. If your in or near Houston check them out......

    db14-

    I messaged you the details. Hope this helps.

  • @gjmgjmpt1 said: Is this for EX AWD ? 27000 OTD is more than reasonable. You should be able to get better than that. Is that the best quote that you got in 100 miles radius?

    Yes, its a CRV EX AWD. Right now the best quote I have gotten is 26307.82 OTD. I think I am probably going to go with this deal.

  • This is the quote I have from BayArea Dealer. This is for 2014 CR-V EX-L 2WD.... Let me know if this is good or is there room for negotiation as we near the end of the year?

    • Selling Price - $25,488
    • OTD Price - $28,200
    • Financing is needed with Honda
  • Please help me I am trying to buy my first car. I am in NJ looking to buy a 2014 CR-V EX AWD. One NJ dealer has given me an OTD price over the phone(not in writing) of $26,700. Is this a good price? I tried to get a better deal from some other dealers but no one is committing. All are saying you come to us and we will give you a better deal. Some are asking for written quote to better it/match it. Any suggestions ??

    Break down your deal so we can help.

    Selling price w dest/ charge included

    Dealers doc fee charge.

    any added accessories on vehicle.

    OTD pricing does not help due to taxes, tags, and doc fee charges. These prices differ from state to state making everybody's OTD pricing different..

    NY/NJ pricing is not as good as the other markets .NY doc fee charges are only 75 dollars not like NJ they range from 299 to 499 depending on the dealerships greed.

    Brian, thanks for your reply.

    I dont have a written breakdown but this is what the sales rep told me. Something like this...

    Sale price = 24400 including destination charges of 830

    Doc Fee = 299

    DMV charges = 301

    Tax = 7%

    plus a tire fee of 7.50 and some online reg fee of 12.50

    Adding it all it the OTD comes roughly around 26700. No accessories and no incentives other than the 1.9% APR for 60 months through Honda finance. Is this good or do I need to negotiate further?

    Your at $ 1,119. below invoice. try to get get other dealers to match or beat this price before taking that offer. your model invoice with dest/charge is $25,519.

    Direct calls to the dealerships internet managers is how you negotiate price on the phone.

    So lets say Auto-sport Honda in NJ gave me that quote.... when i'm calling Hamilton or dch paramus i'm telling those guys 1500 below invoice i buy from you right now........ yes or no. Put each dealership on the spot for the sale that moment. At worst you take the 1st offer which is a good deal if nobody else will match or beat.

  • Brian, thanks for the tip. This is very helpful with all the confusion in my head. I will give it a go tomorrow morning.

  • @brian125 said: Remember the important thing with your deal is getting that vehicle for 800 to 1500 below invoice price.

    Brian,

    When you make the above statement, do you mean 800 to 1500 below invoice price after any fees the dealer tries to assess? So, this would include doc fees, for instance? But not TTL?

  • @brian125 HI I'm in the market also for a CRV-EXL AWD. In the South Bay / CA. We are looking for a specific Color scheme and can not seem to find one on ANY lot - we have searched even 200 miles away.. So we have reached out to see what the Offer would be to "get us" what we want.

    Since we are not taking a car off of their lot.. do we still have negotiation power

    Currently our lowest offer is 27,805(this is Including Dest fee of 830) **+ **Tax/Lic & doc Fees.

  • Brian, also looking forward to buying a 2014 Honda CRV LX AWD. Right now the best offer is around 24,000 + Tax in NY + State Fees = Approx $26,000. I got these numbers in the following from the local dealer, didn't want to make a decision before your expert opinion...

    I'm sure we can do a little better on the price I gave you in the last quote. However, that price of $22,733 is less than all Honda dealers pay for a 2014 CR-V LX AWD. Please see the attached screen shot from Edmunds.com. It shows the invoice (price all dealers pay for the car), True Market Value (average price people are paying), and MSRP.

    As you can see $22,733 is less than invoice. So I can not see any dealer honoring that price, unless that price in contingent on you buying other products for the CR-V or accessories. Or it does not include the $830 destination fee.

    If you are willing to pay a little over invoice then we will be happy to help you with the purchase. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.

    Thanks for your help again!!!

    800 to 1500 below invoice on the selling price of the vehicle............. doc's, tags, taxes then are added onto that number. If a dealer has the flex cash and you plan on financing vehicle thru honda minus a additional 500 off bill of sale at the end of your transaction..

    The most leverage and buying power is buying off the dealers lot. You may make up the difference in price this month due to dealers trying to make end of the year sales incentives. Alot of dealers will swap cars with each other.. Supply and demand will dictate pricing most months..

    I will look into your numbers later with some NY advice on dealerships and pricing.

    Brian,

     Thanks so much, been reading your post on this thread the last few days and have learned so much. My problem is that we live in a pretty rural area compared to NYC, 12901 zipcode for Plattsburgh, NY and we only have 2 dealerships locally (one in Burlington, Vt). Either way, will way for your advice before we proceed, we will probably buy in cash without any financing, being saving up for this. Thanks for taking the time to help all of us and happy holidays!!!
