Your numbers are right in line with @torchness. Someone has to get the "better" deal, but if you're ready to buy, go for it.
One angle - your doc fee is too high, so tell the dealer it's $499 too high. The dealer won't change the doc fee, but the out the door price can be "adjusted" to whack off some of that fee. It'll still say $599 for the doc fee on the sales agreement, but so long as the final price works, that's all that matters.
Or tell the dealer you like the CR-V a lot but you have a friend in Chattnooga who works for an outfit that supplies VW with some interior bits, and you like the idea of the Passat too and would like to support a local company. (That "friend" would be my nephew, LOL).
The Big Mac bridge was fun - you could look down through the decking and see the boat traffic 200' below.
A week without internet? How could you stand it? B)
Nice country over that way for sure. Look up the exploding whale at Florence OR sometime.
Now we need a report from our shoulder-season Alaska traveler, @euphonium.
Nice review - I'm not going to inquire if your mess-makers are dogs or kids. B)
Minivan prices have gone up it seems. And yeah, telling the dealer that you are cross-shopping an Odyssey won't hurt your bargaining position.
We don't really have a "people are idiots" discussion, so I'll post this here.
