    What is the breakdown of the cost- car, destination charge, taxes, other fees, etc.?

    looks like civic is more expensive than CRV. CRV costs about 4000 more but offers lots more -- 4wd, bigger engine, more sturdier, bigger body

    civic lxs 16500 incl dest
    crv lx 4wd 20500 incl dest

    what do u all think?
  • Depends on what you want. Wife drives 2006 Civic. Gets 40+mpg on trips.
    Car is physically too low for my old arthritic bones.
    Just bought a 2009 CRV LX 2WD, with clunker trade. Cost me $18,900 out the door, from Hall Honda, in Virginia Beach Can get in and out of it easily. Provides me the room I need for my lifestyle. Don't expect to get anywhere near the Civic gas mileage.

    cash for clunkers is not a permanent program. It will end before the end of the year, and the dealers will go back to begging for customers. Patience is a virtue.

    Just announced it will end Monday at 8pm

    Let me tell you, C4C has made new car shopping a huge pain. Every dealer in my area has minimal inventory and what they do have, they aren't moving on price with. Every one of them says it's because of C4C which has been wildly successful for dealerships.

    I'm still hoping to buy this fall, hopefully a nicely discounted leftover 09 when the '10's hit the lots.

    C4C ends. Here I come in sept ....
  • C4C is only good if you have a clunker to get rid of. I had a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport w/71k miles. I tried selling on my own with no luck. I took it to Car Max and they offered $3,000. So I opted for the C4C program and got more bang for my buck. If I didn't have a clunker to trade I would definitely not have bought my new CRV EXL/navi this week. Simply not a good selection plus you can wait till the '10's hit the lot. I was very lucky and got the navi down to $26k before the $4500 C4C trade in (all int he ext color and int color that I wanted) a heck of a deal and will never get a deal this good again.
  • Does OTD price include registration and license fees (about $200 in NY)? Today I went to several dealers in Central NY. It seems to me that they are willing to go down the price a little bit. Also most dealers don't have CRV in stock. What is going on with them?
  • They are sold out, or just about sold out. I recently took a trip from Long Island to Maine. I swear one out every thirty or fourty cars was a new CRV.

    2010s should be in in about four-six weeks, if you can wait.
  • Is that price after tax, and fees? (what is the out the door price)
  • I am looking for a used CRV EX. I found one by owner. It is a 2007 CRV EXL with navi and xm radio with 31K miles. They are asking $21K. While this is a few hundred dollars above the "clean" individual price, I assume there's some negotiation room.

    My question is this: Will the Edmunds TMV and Kelly Blue Book price change considerably when the 2010 come out or is this taken into consideration in the current price?

    In other words, what is a good price to pay now?

    Check DCH Kay Honda Eatontown :) :) :) , NJ. Bought an LX 4wd for $150 below dealer cost yesterday in the clunker sale.
  • Hi, doing the same research now. Curious what dealers you dealt with and how your overall experience was. Trying to find a good dealer, i.e., the least games to play. Looking for same exact model.
  • Looking for insights on best dealerships, etc. Thanks in advance.

    I have a 2003 CR-V EX which I bought new in 2003. It was made in Japan. At that time CR-Vs came with Bridgestone’s. I replaced the tires at 115,000 miles which was only yesterday. Dealer "recommended" replacing them during inspection but they were not done yet. But I decided that it's time to replace them anyway before winter comes. I chose Bridgestones again because they proved to be so durable. One secret: I regularly rotated tires at 5K intervals - as I did oil changes. I did 5 -tire rotation (including spare). Naturally they lasted longer.
    (I am still on original front brake pads.)

    People on Edmunds "love to hate" Bridgestones and post statements like: "Yesterday I changed my Bridgestones to Continentals. What a difference!"
    I would say "Yesterday I changed my Bridgestones to Bridgestones . What a difference!" Of course when you change old tires to new ones you would feel "difference!” So I decided not to gamble.

    All in all, with 6 years and 115K on my odometer I had to (apart from regular maintenance) replace oxygen sensor and ETS. Otherwise all was o.k.
    I also have a slight engine noise, which sounds like a valve noise. They checked the valves but they were o.k. Dealer said not to worry.

    Not bad comparing to my another car Volvo S70 1999 which I also bought new. This car is a disaster with 80K on odometer. Most troubles were with electronics.

    Next year or so I will probably buy another CRV.
    What I do NOT like with new CRV's.:
    1. No full spare tire,
    2. No tire well space below where I keep some junk out of site,
    3. No cassette drive - I have some old records which I like.
    4. No retractable shelf between seats and no collapsible table in the back.
    5. Big wheels and small (' bicycle') tires. I would prefer small wheels and big tires. See - I am not participating in car races with my CRV, but, like all of us, I do have lots of potholes on roads.

    What I do like:
    1. Bigger thigh room,

    2. Audio system sounds much better. DVD for kids might be a good idea (They do not gaze at the windows anymore - they are living in a ' virtual' world. When I was a kid - I enjoyed looking around while my father drove a car).

    3. Leather seats and heaters come standard. - In 2003 I ordered them “after market”.

    Bottom-line: Looks like there is no alternative to CRV. I tried RAV and Subaru but did not like ‘em.

    Anyone know when 2010's start to arrive?
    Strategies for negotiating on 2009 models?
    How much are dealers willing to drop their prices on 2009?
    Or should one just wait for the 2010's?
  • Heard late September but not positive. Been researching '09's to purchase this week or next but everyone's inventories are in flux due to the Clunkers rush over the past weekend. Not many in inventory but dealers waiting on a few more arrivals. Seems that program is messing up the usual model year-end buyer leverage, that or dealers are just feeling fat and happy after the weekend.

    I'd wait another week or two and test the waters on the last remaining '09's.

    I've been offered the following prices

    2009 CRV LX = $23,134.30
    2009 CRV EX = $25,585.44
    2009 CRV EX-L = $28,329.99

    These are OTD prices with 6% sales tax and I presume $599 doc fee. I was told inventory is low in the south-east. Having said that, they had a new batch in today. I even test drove the black/black LX 2WD, which is my preference.

    What are your thoughts?

    I test drove one today and liked it. A little underpowered, but acceptable. However with a full load, maybe that will be more noticeable?

    Are those prices for the 2WD or AWD models? I know on the 2WD LX model before the C4C program $19,300-$19,500 was do able but prices have risen and inventory has dwindled so unless you need to purchase now I'd hold off for a bit.
  • dgrebdgreb Posts: 51

    I'm going to check the costco and amex programs too. I'd rather buy sooner rather than later, but I agree, it's best to wait. I think September will be a dire month, so if you can wait till the end, I think a good deal can be had.

    Got 19800+ttl from amex. Not sure if destination is included.
  • Just purchased a new '09 CRV-EXL Navi. I am able to fit two mountain bikes in the back w/seats down, but would rather have them outside due to the cleanliness of the bikes. Does anyone have a recommendation for the rooftop rack or a rack on the back? Also, is there a good source besides the dealership for bikes racks on the CRV?
  • Hi all,
    I'm in the market for the EXL with 2WD (Houston, TX), I know the MSRP is 26K+dest+ttc, can anyone give me the best suggestion of what is the price range for negociating? thx.
  • How much was the price of your new EXL Navi?
