    Price (Destination included) $24,807
    Tax7% 1736.49

    Is this a good price ?
    Visited three dealers all have best OTD 27k so far.
    Need some suggestions, thanks

    By the way , leasing quote same car, $3000 down pay ,12k m/y $215.83/month. How about this number ?

      Post your leasing question in the CRV leasing forum. They will tell you if dealer applied the correct leasing numbers to this deal. Only pay taxes, dmv fee's , and dealers doc fee upfront. Any addition money added upfront will be lost if vehicle is totaled or stolen in the 1st 6 to 8 months. let me look into your numbers

      If dealer used old Invoice pricing list of $26,526 w/ destination and not increase price of $26,619 ( 93 dollar increase ) your current deal is in the range of a OK deal for NJ @1719 below invoice minus the $379 doc fee. = $1340 below invoice . I think you could negotiate price further down

      If you could negotiate at the end of the month you will save more money. If models and stock are limited make deal sooner . This deal is $400 to 700 dollars off being a good deal in NJ . Make new learned numbers your new target price with all models desired. get more dealerships involved that have models, colors you like

    I just joined and notice you offer a great deal of advice to people buying Hondas. I'm replacing a Honda I bought 10 years ago and I can't remember what the acceptable fees are for new car purchases. I don't want to negotiate a price and then have them make some of it back by tacking on inappropriate fees and inflating fees. Can you let me know what are reasonable fees? If you've covered this before let me know where I can find it.

    I'm looking for a 2016 Accord EX-L - Silver with Gray interior if it makes any difference. The best price I've received so far is $25,100. I seen others on the Accord thread that have done better- $24,300 is the best I've seen there.

    I live in the sticks between Buffalo, NY and Erie, PA.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hey brian125, was told to skim through your activity feed best offer I've gotten in NJ so far is right at 27k OTD for a 16 CRV EX AWD

    Looking at 24,600 for the car

    1722 for 7% sales tax

    Probably about 300 on doc fees

    400 DMV fees

    Looking at 27k..give for take a few couple of bucks.

    Any chance of bringing this down further?

      Depending on what Invoice price list dealer is charging you old one before July or new Invoice that's posted at which is a $119 dollar difference on your Ex model . Old price was $26,525, New is 26,619 w/ a 900 destination charge. Going buy old numbers your deal as it stands is $1900 below invoice minus a 300 doc fee. I think if you hold and buy the last 2 days , last day of this month you will save a few more dollars. You may lose a preference color or model if this dealers stock is limited so take that into consideration. Read thru some of my 4323 comments for buying tips and how to make your best deal at months end. Use my recommended NJ / NY dealers at the end of the month ...........Good luck keep me posted

      My math was....... off its 94 dollars increase + 20 for destination increase to $900
