    Price (Destination included) $24,807
    Tax7% 1736.49
    Documentation Fee $379

    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

    Brian,

    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 Nada.com 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

    Hello brian125

    I am in NJ looking for 2016 CRV Touring Model, I am trying to be aggressive in my offer. I responded to dealerships with an OTD price of 32,000. I may be too aggressive.

    My best offer so far:

    30,735 this includes destination and doc. fees of $399.

    32,886.45 with taxes at 7 percent.

    350.00 give or take on DMV fees.

    33, 236.45 out the door.

    I am in no rush to buy, I am hoping there may some more rebates coming down the road before labor day.

    Couple of questions:

    What do your think about the above offer?

    Can I get closer to my desire 32000 OTD price?

    Thanks Shawn

      Your at 1719 below invoice price. Its a decent deal for NY.

      300 to 500 dollars more would be where I'd be looking to purchase tonight otherwise buy from this dealer if no others will beat. good luck
  • your deal now as it stands is a good one at $2285 below dealers invoice. A $300 to 500 savings off the 26,100 price would make your sale a excellent deal giving the area your buying in.

    25k is ridiculous no dealer will go that low. Don't even go there. Call other dealers tell all of them Grieco has offered 25.6 k with destination match for consideration or beat price for sale today.

      See if.... Saccucci Honda or Majestic will match Grieco price. I used to recommend Balise Honda but a few buyers had a bad experience with them quoting then switching pricing. Until I hear otherwise the jury is still out on them.

    Thank you Brian!
    Grieco Honda (RI) was offering me $26100 including destination. the dealer fee is about 499, I am not sure. I am thinking to go Planet Honda, but I am not sure if they can offer me $25000 with destination?
