2013 and earlier-Honda CR-V Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • mokiavellimokiavelli Posts: 58
    I would check out both Weir Canyon and Hardin Honda. They both will most likely match your best prices.
  • All negotiating completed online before prior to going to dealership. MSRP -$24,300 ---- Internet special price $22,752.50 at Steve Bailey Honda

    Asked online if that $22,752.50 price included the (Current then) $750 Manufacturer rebate.

    Haggled briefly online over the (included) documentation fee.

    Final out the door price $22.092.

    Seemed a reasonable price - They had the color Sand we wanted in stock - we picked it up that afternoon- spent probably less than 1 hour at dealership. All in all, very satisfying experience. :)

    Took a weeks vacation to S. Central Colorado after about a week of local driving. Stayed in an area above 10,000 feet, and the little horse performed very well. Averaged 26-27 mpg.

    Sounds high IMO. Here's what a local dealer in SE PA is quoting:

    CRV EX 4WD AT - $21,305
    CRV SE 4WD AT - $22,980

    You can buy an EX for the price of your LX quote.
  • looking for best price!... (will consider manual stick shift) help me get best price on 2006!!! should I wait for 2007 I hate that tire thing in back or should I just get hyundai tucson instead?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 128,307
    One note.. I think the SE model only comes with an automatic.. You have to drop down to an EX model to get a stick-shift...

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

  • got a quote valley honda yesterday (in aurora IL) for 22950 and they knew I wanted manul...mother of two son to be drivers and am thinking stick shift will not let them drive drunk since thay are only ones knowing how to drive it! thanks any comments?
  • sorry about lack of spell-check! my parents rolling in their graves!!!

    First I think the host is right.No stick shift on SE.The stick shift is a good idea. We had both our children learn to drive with a stick shift.When my son turned 16 he wanted to take the driving test right away on our automatic. But we said he had to master the shift and by that time MAYBE he could take the test.Best thing we could have done. At his first job after school he was the youngest employee. They had a yard where trucks made deliveries. There was a truck blocking an area. The boss wanted it moved. All these 20 something year olds just looked at each other. They didn't know how to drive a shift. My son the 16 year old did. He came home that day soo proud. When he came home he said NOW... I know why you made me take the time to really learn to drive. Get an EX it has a shift. It will not solve all your problems with teenagers, But it helps.

    Yesterday I got a dealer to come down to 21,900 without tax or plates for a CRV 4WD EX. Is that good? Are there any rebates or interest deals out there now? I want to buy this week. Someone said they know someone who bought an EX for 21,300. But was that recently? I live in Pittsburgh. Also can my dealer get a color I want from another dealer or is there a charge? Lots of questions, I know. But, you guys know everything.
  • I paid 23,100 for a 2006 SE earlier this month. For $1,200 bucks I got a heck of a lot more equipment than comes on a EX & have the 5-speed auto as well + leather, heated seats/mirrors. For resale and overall comfort, I'd spend the extra money and bump it up to the SE if you are planning on spending $21,900.
  • magoonmagoon Posts: 32
    IMO, $21,900 isn't a bad deal for an EX 4WD AT. I live in Lancaster, PA which was where the local dealer is quoting $21,300 for the same vehicle.

    Generally, there isn't a charge for dealer trades unless it's a long distance swap. What color are you looking for?
  • magoonmagoon Posts: 32
    The EX also has the 5 speed auto (as do all CRV's). The SE gets the body colored bumpers/moldings and the heated leather. That's about it.
  • drive62drive62 Posts: 637
    IMO Grand Honda in Elmhurst has the best prices in Chicagoland. They advertise daily in the papers and they honor their prices---no bait and switch. You can use their price to get a better one from your dealer of choice or buy from them.

    Currently EX ATs go for under $21K and SEs are 22K and change.
  • yinzer1yinzer1 Posts: 11
    Mickie, that price looks great to me. I'm currently shopping in the burgh for a cr-v ex. What dealer did you get that price from? Many thanks. Just out of curiosity did you compare it to the rav4 - if so, your thoughts?
  • greggpgreggp Posts: 2
    None of the local dealers will play ball with the prices people are quoting here ($22k max) for a 4WD EX. They all start at $23k and won't budge. Any ideas on what I can do? I'd buy from another dealer if they could deliver the car locally...
  • thanks I'll swing by there tonight and what's their OUT THE DOOR PRICE for an EX?? what's an AT? thanks
  • radiojefradiojef Posts: 1
    Hey, I'm currently shopping for an EX AWD AT in STL and I'm getting a quoted price of $21,892 w/o tax or title. Is that decent? The highest dealer cash incentive I've been offered is $500 (only good until July 5). Thanks. This forum really helps!!!
  • farleykfarleyk Posts: 6
    You should read the other posts. The going rate tends to be approx. $1000 under invoice. You are falling short of this mark.
    By the way the dealer is not giving you a $500 cash incentive. He is just giving you $500-$600 below invoice. Clearly you could do better and there is no reason why that would change after July 5th.
  • phisherphisher Posts: 175
    Stop in and let the dealer know your ready to buy NOW if the price is right. Let them know what price you want it for and stand firm on that price. If you bump up your offer once they will think you'll do it again. If they won't budge thank them for there time and walk out. If the price is realistic for the market they won't let you get to your car. If they let you walk go on to the next dealership and try for that price.

    The difference between SE and EX are Pleather seats, painted bumpers, and color matched tire cover. I like the painted bumpers, but don't like the tire cover. And pleather is not worth more than $500.

    All CR-Vs come with 5 spd, whether auto or manual, and auto is a negative to some people (me). So, no stick, pleather seats and $1200 more? Thanks, but no thanks. :)

    AT = Automatic transmission.

    I don't deal in OTD prices as every case will be different. I can tell you all they add is a doc fee.
  • yinzer1yinzer1 Posts: 11
    I have used honda's dealer quote function from the website and submitted requests to all the dealers within 90 miles of pittsburgh. The best price that i got from a couple dealers was

    $21,700 for an EX AUTO.

    They say that the $750 dealer cash is ending july 5th. This will probably be used to correct inventory overages - if they are high come the middle of july i would assume they would up the ante with financing. But inventories get low prices actually might rise a little. Whats everybody thing?

  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    That sounds like a very good out the door price. What dealership in Houston?
  • greggpgreggp Posts: 2
    What's the current best financing rate for a 60 month loan?
  • vtec369vtec369 Posts: 8
    Long time follower of this group. I finally got a CR-V EX 4WD in Silver Moss Metallic for 20,992 (before TTL) at Schaumburg Honda in the Chicago area. I want to thank you all for the informative posts on this board, I knew exactly what I wanted and how much I would pay for it having read the posts from the past few months and doing a little bit of research. Thanks again...
  • My credit union gave me a base rate of 5.49 for 60 the beginning of June. After the deductions for direct deposit, getting the warranty through them and getting a visa from them I'll never use - got it down to 4.49% Better than banks - find a credit union if you want a good rate.
  • what was TOTAL cost out the door? looking in Naperville for used SE or EX AWD and want to see if I should just do new vs pre-owned- certifed instead ....any comments everyone? thanks in advance
  • vtec369vtec369 Posts: 8
    TOTAL cost out the door was 22934, but that included the 20,992 + foglamps + mudflaps + wheel locks + cargo tray. I shopped around lots (about 6-7 dealers in the Chicagoland area) and this was the best price I could find. A few of the dealerships were running out of the Silver Moss color we were interested in, so we felt like we have to move quick instead of waiting for the July 4th weekend. You might get a better deal if you wait till then, but keep in mind that Honda has only advertised the $750 rebate till July 5th.
