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



  • 2013 is now available in HOnda site. so it would come out soon.
  • I agree. Went to 3 different on line sites to determine a "trade in" value for my car I'm trading in. They all were within $ 1000 of each other. Dealer wants to give me 50% of that w excuses why they aren't accurate!!!
    Thanks for the note.
  • Dont go with lease unless you want to swap vehicles every few years . . . you will lose money otherwise . . . dealer get more money . . .
  • I've never understood the financial dynamics of lease vs buy other than it is lots cheaper to lease... at least it seems that way.
  • Getting 2012 Honda CRV LX 2WD for about 22,500 OTD; no options or dealer installed accessories.

    Price 21,754 [incl 499 doc]
    Other 90
    Tax 655

    Two dealers, one in VA, one in NC

    Any good at this time of year? Thanks.
  • Finally pulled the trigger. Got a 2012 CR-V AWD (several dealers told me that 2WDs are not shipped to the northeast due to much higher AWD demand and for "weather" reasons; dont know how true that is, but i heard it from several folks). The lowest haggled price from another dealer was 22,234 (not including destination of 830; invoice is 22,303; internet price was 22,700 and then he agreed to take another 500 off).
    Then I discovered the BJ's Auto Buyer Program (similar to Costco's and AAA's). For my zipcode (Queens, NY), the deal with BJ's is invoice - $150, or 22153 (not incl 830 destination). A dealer on Long Island agreed to this which I think is pretty fair. Apparently this same deal even a few months ago was invoice + 500, so getting it for invoice-150 is good (prob due to year-end clearance). I sprang another 1025 for th 7 yr warranty extension. destination of 830 + 2090 tax (8.875%) + ~120 for DMV stuff (I transferred the plate and registration from my 2010 leased honda civic - so this saved me 200 or so) + 12.50 recycling fee. total OTD = ~26,300 or so. I put down 2000 and financed the rest (got 3.9% for 72 months) putting my payments at ~ 370/month (I plan to pay it off quickly making extra payments). So while its debatable as to the utility of the 7 yr extension of the warranty, all in all, I think that's a pretty good deal considering that I didnt have to haggle at all.
    So I would highly recommend getting a BJ's or Costco's membership (starts at 75 bucks or so per year) and then do your shopping. Some discounts that I saw for other cars were in the tune of invoice - 2500 to 3000! so definitely worth it. I'm very happy with my purchase and deal.

    Was this for LX 4WD?

    Same dealers are offering LX 4WD at 23,400 OTD. This includes about 500 in doc fees, etc and 3% tax.

    Did you get extended warranty from dealer or online? Presume this is honda care? Thanks.
  • Finally bought a CRV EX for a total price of $25,154.15 OTD from Bankston Honda in Lewisville, TX. They did not have any LX models, so had to go with EX.
  • Yup AWD - cant get the 2WD in NYC or anywhere else in the northeast apparently.
    Wow 23,400 OTD for an LX is quite the price break. I would LOVE to have 3% tax!!!! In NYC, its 8.875%. Just get all the details upfront. This seems much too good to be true. Does this include the 830 destination? at the OTD price you've quoted, the car would then have to be sold at ~ 21k or so, which is dangerously close to the dealer price (might even be below it). Also, is this for the 2WD or AWD? seems like this might be for the 2WD...
    The extended warranty is Honda Care and I got it from the dealer for at cost of 1025. So this extends the 3 yr/36k to 7 yr/70k (I forget what the mileage is). It made the difference of 16 bucks so I figured what the heck.
  • Hello,

    Congratulations. You got very good deal. I am also planning to buy EX-L or EX-L with Nav today or tommorow from the Lewisville TX dealer.

    I am poor at negotiation. If you any suggestions, please let me know
  • My only recommendation would be to get on an Auto Buyer program for a wholesale/bulk buying store like BJ's or Costco. Depending on your location, you could then get significant discounts (mine was invoice - $150). for BJ's, you dont necessarily have to even be a member to see what the discounted price would be. Best of luck.
  • Anyone has idea when will 2013 come out?

    I was told end of Oct. I plan on buying a 2013. I had quotes of 500 to 800 below on the 2012' s I dont keep my cars more than 5 yrs. IF i could of got a 2012 crv for 1500 to 2000 below invoice i might have consider buying a late year end model other wise it dont make sense financially.

    2016 BMW X-5 35i, 2013 Genesis 5.0 R-spec, 2012 MB ML350

  • Where are you ? You got the prices below 2012 model ? Thats strange.....

    Price is for new 2012 LX and includes 830 dest and 499 doc fees. So 23,400 OTD for new 2012 CRV LX 2WD [incl 830 dest, 499 doc, and tax 3%].

    Drove a couple of LX and EX models and couple, at least it seemed to me, had steering wheel slightly off center, i.e. going on straight road it seemed had to steer a bit to the left. Very slight and most folks probably would not notice.

    Any one else notice same and would this be tire alignment issue or need to adjust steering wheel or something else?

    Longer we wait the less choice in colors and hard to get LX 2wd.

    For Honda Care it seems Saccucci gies better price then Bernardi. $300 less for D78 84months/80k.

    Any other place anyone could suggest? Thanks.
  • Bought a CRV EX from David McDavid in Irving with some accessories: Splash Guards, Wheel Locks, All Season Mats, Cargo Tray, Cargo Net, Front Side Window Tint, Paint/Fabric Protection. Had a trade-in as well, so the vehicle price before trade-in would be $25,460. An earlier worksheet had the accessories itemized, so if I removed those listed prices, then the base EX 2WD could have been $22,800.

    Good Luck
  • Sorry for the late reply... even I am not good at negotiating... the dealer was not willing to knock off even the $154 to make it $25K even... not sure maybe I should have threatened to walk out... as I said I am not good at negotiating either... thanks to the forum.. atleast we know what others are paying... that will make life a little bit easier.. knowing how much we can pay for the vehicle... I went into the dealership to get a LX for $23K but since they didn't have any more LX's... I have to go for the EX... I was not sure of the price of an EX from this dealership... but thought maybe a couple of thousand more than LX was reasonable and went with it... hope it was a good deal...

    Good luck with your purchase !!!
  • Sorry, just realized typo.

    It's 23,400 OTD [499 doc, small misc fees, 3% tax] for new 2012 LX 4WD

    It's 22,500 OTD [499 doc, small misc fees, 3% tax] for new 2012 LX 2WD

    Anyone else experience off center steering wheel?
    Caused by tire alignment or what?

    Got an OTD quote $ 27500.00 for 2013 EX , Basque Red Pearl with gray interior.
    I wonder if this is a good deal.
    Any response is appreciated.
    Thank you.
  • Which dealer is that?
  • Talking to a HUGE local dealer in our area. They have a bunch of stores all over the state.
    Relayed to the dealer what we want. Said he can get it from another of their shos... BUT he wants us to put $$ down and sign a purchase agreement.. .sight unseen. I've seen these agreements. Written by the dealer, they obviously are weighed toward the dealer. Is this commonplace??? I've never run into this before, but usually I buy something off the lot.
  • Frank Kent in Fort Worth.
