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



  • Does anyone have recent prices paid for the EX FWD? Most of the recent prices paid on this board seem to be for the EXL or the AWD types. I want to purchase an EX FWD (no extra options) soon, and wanted to know some of the recent prices paid. Thanks for any input.
  • I got an LX 2wd for $1215 off MSRP in Western NY. I saw a post from someone else from Western NY in another CRV forum who got $1200 off the EX 2wd as well. Good luck!

    I just picked up my CRV EX AWD a few weeks ago from the Honda dealer in Everett, MA for $1400 under MSRP. It was a good deal, but I had a bad experience with the Boston area Honda dealerships in general.

    I first visited Honda North and the salesman was less than mediocre. First, the CRV I reserved by credit card, was sold before I arrived (classic bait and switch). Then they wouldn't honor the quote that they sent me through an email because it was for instock models only (irony much?). They also had a coupon on their website honoring $400 in free accessories, but the salesman seemed annoyed that I mentioned it and explained that it was only good for instock models. I already had my mind made up at that point, but I asked them to match Everett's price and they just got really angry at me and tried to use every fear tactic ("You'll never get your car until April!") as I tried to walk out the door.

    An hour later I made the deal I wanted with Everett. The salesman was excellent, but then a few days before the car arrived we had to meet with the business manager and it went downhill from there. The business manager just seemed shady and was trying to throw things into the deal without mentioning it to us. He said we were getting a AAA-type service with our car, but didn't mention how much it was. When I asked, he said "$400", so I said, we already had AAA and didn't want it. You really had to pay close attention because they were trying to pull fast ones on us.

    Finally we picked up the car a few days later and the salesman asked us to give him perfect scores on the Honda corporate survey. We gave him perfect scores, but not to the business manager. We got a call later from the salesman who was ANGRY at US because we didn't give EVERYONE perfect scores, even though they didn't deserve it. I was dissappointed because he was very professional up until that point.

    But I'm happy to have the CRV now. I took it down to Hartford last weekend and it drove great! I love the MP3 CD player.

    hi- don't know your location but I've been looking for this trim as well for weeks. in the (expensive) sf bay area, the best quote I've seen on this board was from someone who paid 22542 +tax/lic about a month or two ago. someone from chicago paid 22345 (not sure if dest was incl).

    The best quote I've received so far for a basic ex fwd is 22600 +tax/lic. it's about the half way point between invoice and msrp 21846 & 23445 incl dest (difference is 1599).

    I prefer the light blue or silver which are apparently the most popluar colors. it's a good looking silver but there are so many silver cars around! sometimes you can get tired of a color so not sure about the light blue -if color is a big deal to you.

    good luck!

    I got a quote from a local dealer:

    Your price on the 2007 Honda CR-V LX 2wd is $19760 plus tax, lic and doc fees. I do have one still available. What color are you looking for? Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions

    Is this a good deal right now? Anything I need to pay attention to? This will be my first time to buy a new car, also first time to buy from a dealer.

    BTW: I'm in OR.

    Well your experience is very much the norm. Honda America does a very lousy job keep a tight leash on their dealerships. So much so that a dealership company that owns several brands (e.g., in my case both Toyota and Honda) have very superior behavior at the Toyota dealership and lousy behavior at the Honda dealership, which reinforces my belief that American Honda Sales needs to stop sleeping on the wheel.

    I too had a similar experience - happy with the sales person but still mad at the Luther Hopkins Honda business office lady who was very aggressively trying to push her protection packages. I was mad at myself as to why I let her push me around. I should have told her curtly not to waste my time. I am keenly waiting to have my say during the survey from American Honda.

    What sort of questions did they ask in the survey?
  • I guess i should have mentioned my location. I was looking for recent prices paid for the EX FWD (no options) in the Washington D.C./Maryland/Virginia area. Any body ??
  • Don't bother buying a car from a dealer who thinks he has the last CRV Honda will make. I spent two days in Knoxville before I found Honda Morristown. These guys want to sell cars and will deal with you in a professional manner. NO BS, NO Games! I cannot recommend them highly enough. Paid under Sticker MSRP (NOT THAT DEALER TACK ON) for my new CRV EX-L W/ NAV and AWD. I understand that they will even pick you up at the Knoxville, TN Airport (KTYS) if you wish to Fly in and drive home!
  • Does anyone have experience recently purchasing a CRV in the Washington DC metro area? Any good dealers to recommend?
  • I'm from san diego and am looking to buy an EX-L like you have. I'm searching for prices via several dealership in town via email and the best price i got was 24,800 (fuller and Poway) + tax and fees. May I ask your buying price and at which dealer please? Your answer should save me lot of time to make my final decision on the offered price.

    my email is:

    thank you
  • I purchased a 4WD EX-L Glacier Blue without Navigation about 10 days ago from Criswell Honda in Germantown, MD. I paid
    $24,812.40 (includes $100 processing charge)
    $ 1,240.62 (5% sales tax)
    $ 210.00 (tax, tags)
    $ 26,263.02 which also included wheel locks, splash guards, and cargo tray.
    I waited quite some time for the dealer to get the car but I was not in a great hurry, and the actual buying experience was pretty good.

    Otd in what county? are you in chicago, suburban cook, or other?
  • chrisp81chrisp81 Posts: 19
    Thats an invoice deal, I'd say its pretty strong considering supply issues. Just make sure the $595 destination is included & the crv is free of add ons. :shades:

    Any new posts to OTD prices for a CRV in Florida?? I'm looking to buy before the end of the month. I'm getting real tired of being told just how hard these vehicles are to come by... I figure if they have them, they should sell them. I've offered $1000 below MRSP but willing to pay the administrative fees... sounds more than fair to me!
  • chrisp81chrisp81 Posts: 19
    too bad you're in florida. I'd write it up.
    Question, whats an administrative fee? We have doc/service here $58.48
  • denascardenascar Posts: 25
    Administrative fees = dealer's fees
    I should have no DOC fees as I have a check in my hand from the credit union and I pay none... service fees have varied from one dealership to another.

    can you please send me dealer information for this.
  • pegwinkspegwinks Posts: 13
    See my message #4661. I now think that I could have done better. But . . . .

    The CR-V is currently built in seven different countries. For the U.S. market, the new model will be built at Honda's East Liberty, Ohio, plant, marking the first time the model has been assembled in North America.

    Where do you live in Florida. I Know somebody who works for a honda dealership.
  • denascardenascar Posts: 25
    I live in Gainesville, FL
  • hd2hd2 Posts: 15
    OK, I guess I should have said SW Florida (fort myers and Naples). I am going to buy one soon from one of these dealerships. Just have to try to get them to lower the price or give me some deals.

    If you are still interested, I can give you a name (from fort myer). This person has been good to me so far. I know they have a glacier blue ex-l available :) (this was told to me yesturday) this color is very popular and one the my wife wants.

    Let me Know, if I can help.
  • denascardenascar Posts: 25
    Let me know what your final OTD price is... the best I've gotten so far was $26,971 OTD, by email of course. I'd be willing to make the drive to save a few hundred dollars.
    I'm looking for the white CR-V EX-L with no dealer add ons. Plain and simple. :shades:
  • hd2hd2 Posts: 15
    No problem. You also helped me. I was quoted 27300 :( before add ons. I am going to meet to put a down payment on the CR-v tomorrow or Saturday. By Monday or Sunday, I WILL have a respone for you. :)
  • chrisp81chrisp81 Posts: 19
    its because working in a car dealership makes you goofy!

    I've had my fair share of mistakes. If I were you I'd still want that $500.00 refund on a "we owe" statement.
  • chrisp81chrisp81 Posts: 19
    that could take until next year from what I have heard.

    I'm getting real tired of being told just how hard these vehicles are to come by... I figure if they have them, they should sell them.

    While I haven't started the negotiating phase yet, this seems to be the consensus I'm hearing at every dealership I go to in Houston. I went to Clear Lake Honda and they had a few on their lot that they'd added a bunch of dealer crap on to to puff up the price by as much as $1500.

    Goodson Honda In Houston had an EX-L on their lot that was MSRP'd up to $32,000 with dealer added crap.

    The C-RV's are nice cars but $32,000? You'd have to be on crack to pay that much for one.

    I don't care....I'm willing to wait till all the hype blows over about these cars until I can find that dealer that's willing to deal.
