  • Hello guys,
    This posts were so helpful in getting what I think was a good deal, so I will post my numbers. Hopefully they will help others. Car bought in Florida. I called all the dealers in the state and negotiated for around two weeks.

    I purchased a 2015 CRV LX on December 30, 2015.

    According to my buyer's order:
    Vehicle purchase price 21,000.00
    Predelivery service charge 799.00
    Third party private tag agency fee 95.00
    Battery fee 1.50
    New tire fee 5.00
    Subtotal 21,950.50
    Sales tax (6.0%) 1,314.03
    County tax (.50%) 25.00
    Title, Registration, new tag 368.85
    Subtotal 23,608,85
    Minus Honda Finance Discount 750.00
    Total (Out the door price) $22,858.38

    Plus I got: cargo cover, cargo tray, wheel locks, all weather mats, regular mats, nitrogen in tires, door guards, pin stripes and nitrogen in the tires; some of which I didn't even want but they were "free".

    Thank you all.

    Congrats @johnytsusami!

    Those Florida doc fees are just nuts.

    That is the infamous Florida doc fee..

    Not sure how that gets to be "customary"

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Weak consumer protection like most states have. Massachusetts seems to pro-active on the issue. (wickedlocal.com)
  • Hey gang, has anyone heard of any awesome deals on '15 Touring AWD's? I'm thinking about picking one up, and I have one dealership around $30k sale price (plus t, t, l) but didn't know if that was good or not.

    Invoice price on the 15 touring awd model is $31,768 if new dest charge of $900 was added?

    Negotiate at months end and find more dealers with your model. One yr. old model Depreciation value doesn't outweigh above price quoted . You could do better. Make sure you factor in dealers doc fee charge if your state has high doc's. $1768 below invoice minus doc fee = your deal right now.

    $2500 to 3k plus should be your target price to buy a 2015 model otherwise go for the 2016 model.

    Dealers with limited 15 models might not want to deal $2500/3k below knowing some Uneducated buyers will go for a $1400 below invoice price after paying the MD/ VA $300 plus doc fee price. So be it don't buy

    In MD / VA area $500 to 800 below invoice should be a piece of cake on 16 models.

  • So are you thinking maybe offer $29k or so for the 15 Touring AWD model (plus tax, tags, doc)?
  • brian125brian125 New York Posts: 5,212
    Yes. Makes no sense to buy a 1yr model old model for just 1000 less than a 16 model. Check dealers stock and look to buy Presidents weekend or last 2days, last day this month.

    End of March ( ending 1st quarter for car companies is the next good buy dates. )

    Stick with below Honda dealers in MD and VA . They should have biggest stock on 2015 CRV's in that area

    CRISWELL, AUTO NATION IN VA , HERITAGE, HERSON'S

    Good luck

  • New to this forum. Looking to buy a CRV EX-L in Utah. There are a few dealers who have some pretty significant 2015 inventory, particularly in a color that is not as popular. One dealer is sitting on 4 of the same color, all brand new 2015 CRV EX-L models. Just wondering what a good price is. Sales tax is 6.85%.

    Your target price should be 2k to 3k below dealers invoice price on any 2015 model. . If your state has a high doc fee charge you need to counter that charge by getting a better below invoice price.

    Sounds like a expensive feature once the car is out of warranty. I like Fords new feature. Especially in the War-Torn 3rd world country roads of NY and the 5 boroughs.

    There isn't 1 pot hole that my wife does not like or find when she's driving :worried:

    Ok, so $3000 below invoice plus tax, license and doc fee? Anything else? I think the doc fee is pretty reasonable with this dealer. However, an out the door price of $28000 seams like a good deal, agreed?
  • brian125brian125 New York Posts: 5,212
    Yes sir. Every states pricing will vary but a 2 / 3k below invoice makes a nice deal. Me personally I need to be 3k below to consider a over 1 yr. old model to the 2016 model.

    Good luck

  • I'm new to this forum. I'm in Tennessee and I'm looking to buy 2015 CR-V EX , what is a good price to pay in February since 2017 come out soon ???
  • steverstever Posts: 52,462
    Welcome to the forum - got family in Chattanooga (but can't say I know much about the market back there).

    Guess the first question is how much 2015 inventory is still around and are you okay with "settling" for whatever color is in stock?

    Numbers for a 'nooga zip are Invoice $24,868, MSRP $26,425 and TMV is coming in at $24,438.

    TMV for a 2016 EX is $25,565. I'd think a good price on the leftover 2015 would be $2,000 under invoice. No idea if that's possible, but considering that some people 8 hours away in VA are getting $1,000 or more off invoice for the 2016s, that would be a good starting point.

    My numbers include destination and I assumed you were looking for FWD.

    @stever

    I might be in this predicament. I had a quote for 26,400 OTD for a 2016 CRV EX FWD (8% tax) but they ran out of my color. I have the option of waiting or choosing another color.

    A third option I saw was getting the same color, but for the 2015 model. My understanding is that everything except for the front grill is the same.

    Based on what you are saying, do you think $25,000 otd is reasonable? I think it is more than fair since I will take a hit on depreciation. I think I should be more aggressive and aim for $24,500.

    Please let me know your thoughts!

    Yeah, that could work, although the depreciation hit could be a bit higher (search for True Cost to Own here for those numbers). Hm, looks like depreciation for a 2015 EX FWD is around $4,500. But that's spread out over the first year of ownership. When did the 2016's come out, Septemberish? Call it a half year's depreciation and you are around $2,000.

    Just me, but I'd rather have the latest and greatest, but for the right number.... Coming up with that line in the sand is always the fun part. :)

    They wouldn't give me more than $500 off for the 2015s. To me, the hit on depreciation is not worth it. I guess it's back to waiting. I'll keep you posted!
  • Can someone please help me out and tell me what my out the door target price should be if I buy today in Houston? Either a CRV EX L FWD or Touring (there's a lot more inventory of Touring). Both have about 1400 worth of pre installed dealer add ons. Thank you very much.
  • forgot to specify - 2015, of course.
  • steverstever Posts: 52,462
    We just had a post where the dealer let a buyer walk and wouldn't do $1,500 off invoice on a 2016.

    For a 2015, I'd want that $1,500 and I wouldn't want to pay the $1,400 in dealer add-ons. So I'm up to $3,000 off on the selling price already and my feeling is that the dealers in TX aren't that aggressive, even on "left-over" stock.

    Doesn't hurt to go in with your guns blazing; maybe drop some hints that you're trying to decide between a CX-5 and a CR-V.

    Hi all - any thoughts on CRV EX AWD 2015 preowned vs. 2016 new. Which is the better value.

    Was looking for a preowned 2015 low miles but couldnt find any being offered locally so started looking at new 2016s since the 2017 has hit the lots. 2016 new is a little higher than I was looking to pay OTD, but started to convince myself it's in the running b/c of the 0.9% APR

    ZIP 08052

    2015 CRV EX AWD 15k miles (not certified, at an Acura)
    vehicle 20995
    doc fee 498
    registration 411
    tire recycling 7.5
    OTD with Tax 23381
    1.9% APR

    2016 CRV EX AWD NEW
    vehicle 24998
    doc fee 396
    protection package 449 - wheel locks, splash guard, cargo tray. said first two are bolted on.
    registration 411
    tire recycling 7.5
    OTD with Tax 28016
