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



  • tutimamitutimami Posts: 7
    A local dealer is quoting me 21500 OTD for 2007 CRV 2WD LX Black on Black.

    Is this a good price? :confuse:
  • 95ags95ags Posts: 7
    I think that is a good OTD price. The lowest quote we received was $22,186, and the dealer ended up not honoring it once we got there, so we walked away from the deal. :mad:

    Good luck.

    Thank you all for so much useful info here. Just got my brand-new 07 CR-V 4WD LX yesterday. Glacier Blue metallic. It's awesome.

    I live in northern Virginia. Tried quote around. But no one can beat the Heritage Honda Westminster (I really appreciate the previous discussions on dealers around DC Metro). They offer invoice!!! And only $99 processing fee.

    No haggle, no push at all. Great experience.

    2007 CR-V LX 4WD (No add-on at all)
    The final price is
    Invoice: $20,872 (including destination)
    Processing fee: $99
    Tax: $629.13 (VA 3%)
    DMV: $255.50

    Total: $21,855.63 (OTD)

    Great price and great experience. You may ask for Joe Ski. I really like this polite & kindly old fellow.
  • Bought mine Royal Blue CR-V EX AWD at $23000, Price includes destination charge, wheel locks, splash guards, all-season floor mat, and trunk tray. OTD price is $25179.79. This is at Bay Area, CA. CA Tax is very high. :cry:

    Here is the breakdown,
    Car price: $23000
    Doc Fee: $55
    Sale TAX: $1902.04
    Estimated License Fee: $150
    Registration: $64
    CA Tire Fee: $8.75
    Total: $25179.79

    I think it is an OK deal. With all the accessories, I am at around $300 lower than invoice. There was only one Royal Blue EX AWD within 30 miles, which did not give me many options. If my wife wanted a silver color, I think I could shoot down another $150. :confuse:

    Original quotes from dealers for EX AWD are $22987 - $23450. As you can see there is $500 difference between dealers. Also the price from same dealer can vary depends on which internet manager served you.

    I ended up with the dealership which is close to my home. But the original quote from that dealer was $23450. :)

    I have read many of the posts on this forum and I have not seen any people buying CRVs below invoice price.

    If anyone has bought a CRV below invoice price, please respond with the model, AWD/FWD, the price, tax, title, license , and the dealer name and location so that all of us on the forum may give these good dealers MORE business.

    Also, please provide a contact name and phone number so we will all have the same pleasurable buying experience.

    Thank you for your responses in advance.

    Please advise. I need your collective wisdom. Dealer suggests I add all of the following:

    Rustproofing ($500) Injected in to the body panels of the vehicle, coats the sheet metal, preventing rust.

    Undercoating ($380) Rubberized, abrasion resistant coating applied to the undercarriage of the vehicle, strongly recommended due to salt in Maryland, reduces road noise.

    Paint sealant ($400) Teflon coating buffed into paint, prevents fading, loss of gloss, acid rain, bird droppings, and oxidation, eliminates waxing for 8 years.

    Interior Protection ($370) Protects all interior from oil and water-based stains, helps prevent fading of interior.

    Are any, all or none of these worth the cost? Your thoughts?

    Please don't take this as a lighthearted comment: Take the money for all of these and go on a nice vacation.
    I've been drinving for over 40 years and haven't undercoated my cars since 1970. The rest of this stuff, imho, is also nonsense.

    i agree-just a way for the dealer to make lots of profit!
  • vcarrerasvcarreras Posts: 247
    95ags Was it Baytown who did not honor the deal?
  • blufz1blufz1 Posts: 2,045
    These items are rip offs. Don't you dare let them do this to your new car!
  • sjack1insjack1in Posts: 6
    Wow, this is a nice price! Can you share with us which dealer in SF Bay area gave you this deal? Thanks!
  • autoworldautoworld Posts: 2
    Thank you to all who responded to my earlier post about dealer additions. I appreciate your feedback. I forgot to mention some other extras dealer proposed for my beautiful new EX-L 4WD:

    Enhanced Alarm system ($500) model AM1, I believe, from
    Auto Start ($450) which can be combined with the above alarm system for a single price of $700.
    Back up Sensors ($400) by Echomaster. I see that lists the MSRP price for backup sensors as $518.
    Certified Plus Gold ($900) good for five years for interior repair, door dings, alloy wheel repair and paint repair.

    Your thoughts on any or all of these extras?
  • blufz1blufz1 Posts: 2,045
    Rip offs! Save your money and your beautiful new car!

    Posted yesterday that I have been shopping in the SF Bay Area and have been quoted $23,900 for an EX 2WD and $24,850 for an EX AWD including destination but not including TTL without much haggling. These prices are for an EX-L.

    I've read that Honda is starting to import some of the CR-Vs from Japan in order to meet demand. How can you tell whether a particular vehicle is from Japan or from the states? Can you tell from the Vin? If so, how do you read it?

    Also, any thoughts as to whether the Japan assembled CR-Vs will be any better assembled than the ones here or vice versa?
  • stevecarstevecar Posts: 148
    all ripoffs. How about auto dimming mirror or fog lights for a couple of hundred dollars apiece and rear cargo mat for about 100.Those are three things to consider.
    That's about it.
  • raymondw7raymondw7 Posts: 25
    thansk for the advice, i called up the other dealership that quoted 23049 OTD for the LX AWD, and he could not match 25,500 AWD EX. I'm still thinking that 25,500 OTD for EX AWD is not the best deal. If anyone in the NJ/PA area has seen better please advise
  • starhuskerstarhusker Posts: 26
    My CR-V is entirely made in Japan. It says so on the tag and all the dealers told me so too. I have no idea the quality is better or worse. As long as it doesn't break, I'm happy. ;) :)

    I've been making a habit of checking on the inventory of a local dealer (the main lot as well as a "secret" overflow lot). I go by once a week or so, and the supply here is definitely improving. This week, there are 13 CR-Vs on the lot (9 LXs and 4 EXs), which is the most I've seen since they debuted. Incidentally, three were assembled in Saitama, the rest in Ohio.

    I don't know about the prices but at least the supply side of the equation seems to be improving :)

    Have you tried Burns Honda in South New Jersey? They seem pretty good. Or even better Conecelli Honda in Philly out by the airport. I have been car shopping and they sent me some really great prices on the net ;) .

    The window sticker will have where the car was assembled, where the engine was made. I know you can tell from the VIN since I have read it here before, but darn if I can do it.

    Can't say if it's better or not if manufactured in Japan. You'll hear differing opinions here. That said, after having poor experiences with American made products, I felt some relief, whether justified or not, that my car was fully made in Japan. Sorry american car buyers! :blush:

    Sorry I have not checked for the forum for a while.

    The dealership is HONDA Village in Newton. If you need the salesperson's name or phone # email me at

    I happen to know another dealership named Herb Chamber Honda might have a better deal (Base price for EX AWD for $22300)

    Hope this helps.

    My window sticker says:

    U.S./Canadian Parts Content: 0%
    Major Source of Foreign Parts: Japan 100%
    Country of Origin - Engine: Japan
    Transmission: Japan
    Port of Entry: East Liberty

    Final Assembly Point: East Liberty, OHIO, USA

    Are all parts/Engine/Transmission from Japan, or are some built in U.S.?

    Since everything seems to have come from Japan, but the final assembly was in Ohio, does that make it a Japanese import or a U.S. built CR-V?

    Hey ya'll!! :blush:
    I've gotten 2 local internet, OTD quotes. One not worth negotiating, the other only $300 off MSRP. My in-laws recommended Mike Patton of LeGrange, GA where they bought their 2005 CRv. They quoted me OTD $22,521 for a base EX 2WD. So far, the best deal. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge of this dealership? Tanks!!

    bought it on 5/26 from Ourisman Honda in Bethesda Maryland.

    I'm also in the market for a EX-L with nav. Have you heard from anyone else on what the average price people have been paying for that model?
