  • Thanks for the info. Working with 3 dealers right now and so far no go. If they don't match it I just wont buy it! Will give Buena Park a call and see what they can do. I may print out this board and take that with me! Thanks from Irvine:)
  • Where do you live? What area and dealer?
  • Thanks for your reply on Planet Honda. I will send them a Internet request.What model CR-V did you buy? Did you add anything to the vehicle?Being $800 cheaper, what OTD price should I be looking at with them. I would appreciate any comments or other information that you might have. Thanks

    Looking to buy a 2004 Honda CR-V Ex automatic in northern Pa. What would be an reasonable price (out the door) for it, since the new 2005 CR-v will be coming out soon. Also, does anybody have any information what the 2005 CR-V will have as standard equipment on them. I have read on this forum that (ABS, Airbags, and Stability contol will be offerd as standfard equipment. Can anybody verify this?

    I dont know, since Honda hasn't released any pricing let alone much of any else of type of information, what do you think would be a reasonable price?
  • I finally purchased My 2004 CRV EX Auto today. Whew! Car Payments again. Thanks to Matthew? Did a deal with Buena Park Honda OTD 22,595.00. Had roof racks installed (stock)? so I guess those came with the vehicle. Anyway they were great and I have to see them again next weekend. Pulls to the right and a panel underneath drivers seat came down. Hey nothing is perfect! Will keep you posted!
  • Congratulations, Cowboy2, on your purchase. Sounds like a great deal. Glad to be of help.
  • Thanks for your reply about Academy in Old Bridge.They did not have the color CR-V that I wanted. But again, thanks for your reply.
  • This price is drive out in Dallas. Price is $18,096 tax 1173.82 Lic 180.55 = $19450.37 and it looks like there is some cushion in the tax number. Going to find out what that is all about. Getting more pressure from my wife than the salesman. LOL!!!

    bubba, LX RTAWD?
  • Sorry that was 04' LX 2WD with Tint, Front flaps, and cargo tray. I have talked with several in my area which is Richardson. I have talked with Mckinney, Frisco, and Lewisville. Not one of these people could beat that. I only deal with Fleet dept when I buy my cars. If you want me to break it down even more The price was $17556 plus dest which is $490 and it sounds weird but my numbers are not matching up. I am going to pick up the car today so I will be able to give you the exact numbers.
  • This may be helpful to other buyers.
    Yesterday I bought 2004 CR-V LX 2 WD with following options.

    1)Door edge guards
    2)Front Flash guard
    3)Running Boards.
    4)Cargo Cover
    5)Silencer system (ALarm)
    6) Tint

    Extended warrant 7 years/100,000 miles (paid: only $1000)

    Total drive out including all above...$21,300

    I think this is the best what I got.

  • YEP! I did it! I paid $19,450.37 but with a little hassle. They tried to tell me that the cost went up $400 bucks. I said why is that because I was quoted 19,450.37 and they said because they are hot. I said and that is why I am here. I have bought 3 other's from the same dealership and 2 from the same guy. I said that would be sad to lose a deal to a loyal customer over $400 bucks. They agreed and sold it to me at that price quoted. Long story yes I know. Ok here is the beef price OTD $19,450.37 with Tint, Front flaps, Pin stripe, and cargo tray. They even threw in the chrome hub caps which look better than steel color on top of Mojave Mist. This should keep the wife quiet for a minute.

    When I bought my wife a 04 CR-V for Christmas last year one of the things the saleman kept babbling about was lifetime free oil changes. This is such a minor expense that I paid little attention to it as we were grinding over the final price. I think the dealership was unhappy with the deal even though I figured they were making around $700 with their fees & the holdback. They lowballed me so bad when we got to part II (my trade-in) that I had to take the Civic I bought from them to Carmax (who offereed me $1200 more) They could have easily made 1500-2000 in a week or two because the Civic was in perfect shape (Carmax sold it 4 days after they put it out on the lot)

    Anyway back to the oil change. When I went in and asked for the free oil change the dealer would not do it unless I got a bunch of other crap such as checking a belt looking at the boots, etc., just absolute crap and wanted to charge $34.00. I said I didn't need any of that I could check it myself and the car is less than a year old so I think the belts are ok. They will not do the oil change for free unless you pay them to look under the hood for a minute or two - total scam - when the salesman tells you "free oil changes for life" tell them you are not interested and that it makes you less likely to buy if they mention it again.
  • What was the the name of the dealer that you used ? Thanks
  • Hi all,

    I'm working with 3 dealers and currently have an offer on the table of 22,700 OTD (including 6% sales tax).

    Good deal? or should I beat them up a bit more...

    Figure now is the time to strike since business in the area has been bad due to string of hurricanes....

  • OK, I'm looking at buying a new '04 CRV here in Fayetteville, NC. I want the EX, manual trans, with Sport pkg for $20K. Dealer is telling may that there is NO WAY to get under 22,733. What are the opinions out there? Feasable or not? Thanks!
  • Hey Bradley. Looks like we're getting about the same price quotes. I hoping to get at least another 1000 off. I think that they want to get rid of the '04s to make room for the '05s. I say beat them up some more. Let me know if you get your guys lower. Thanks.

    Backing out the 6% tax, that is $100 over invoice... a pretty good deal.


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

    What is the Sport package? Does the dealer's price include tax?

    I just purchased a 2004 Cr-V LX 4WD automatic from Vandergriff Honda, Arlington, Texas. I had all my numbers about invoices, holdbacks, ads, etc. before I made the deal. I knew what a fair deal was. I don't know the exact numbers MSRP 20690 + tinted glass $190; $ 275 digishield; $ 995 environmental protection package for a total of $22,175. The salesperson quoted me a great price of 19153 on the CR-V. I new that was a good deal. I had calculated around 19,600 (excluding profit). I know that digishield and EPP are way overpriced. Several minutes later he came to me and said that he made a mistake and forget to add the options. I don't know if he did that on purpose and really made a mistake. We agreed on $20,400. I asked what digishield and EPP were and he briefy described them. I really don't remember what these extras really are. Every car on the lot had these added options. My question to the forum is what is this stuff and how do I know that they are installed on the car. Post script: Never buy a car when your tired

    I got mine couple hunderds below invoice last month (including all dealer fee). Good luck.
  • Hi all, I'm in MA. I was offered a Red CRV-EX for 21300 (it seems this is what everyone is saying) with 5% Sales Tax and fees it comes to 22575.00. Should I wait? Some dealers say that they're going, but a number of other dealers say they have them, what gives?

    If you have a specific color or transmission in mind, you might be better off buying now. However, if you are flexible about that sort of thing, you can probably get a better deal by waiting a few weeks. CR-V's don't sit on the lots long, though. The last of the 2004 models have most likely been built and are being shipped as we speak.

    FYI. Keep in mind that buying just before the 2005 upgrades will save you a good deal up front and cost you a great deal if you decide to sell (or total it in an accident). So I hope you plan to keep it for a while.
