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



  • Hello,
    Thank you so much for this information. I'm also in Atlanta. May I know who was the dealer you bought the car from?

    $23,112 drive out seems to be a very good deal.
  • 2013 Honda CR-V EXL w/Navi. The MSRP is $29,775.00.

    Upfront Internet pricing including destination and handling charge is $26,851.00.

    With our dealer added accessories your price is $27,999.00.

    Those accessories are Window Tint, Pinstripe, Wheel Locks, Trunk Tray, Splash Guards and Nitrogen tire up-grade*.

    Is this a good price for a 2013 CR-V EX-L 2wd with Nav. Wanting to buy this week.

    Just got an 2013 EX-L 2WD today (near San Gabriel) for $23,685.00 OTD
    Only got the floor mats for free.
    Thanks for all your posts.
  • That's an excellant price. ONLY $3,000 less than the best price I've gotten working with approx 25 dealers out here in DC area. Would be real interested in knowing how you did that.
  • Was that with Navigation?
  • sambesambe Posts: 6
    Can you please provide any details please. Which dealer/sales person, what was the price breakdown, etc.
  • Got lucky because dealer has lot of EX-L's and end of month quota?
    Also call and deal with the fleet manager only.
    Good luck.
  • $23K+ is off the charts for the car by itself. Considering your price is OTD and includes tax, tag and title I would say you hit it out of the park. I got a deal like that on a pathfinder once....When I asked the sales manager how he could sell it for $3.5K below invoice he said you made my quota for the month and quarter. Selling that car got me an additional 30K in profit. As my dad used to say "Even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while". I purchased an EX-L today and did not even get close to 23K but compared to the rest of the prices posted here I think I did fine and am very comfortable with my purchase. In Georgia, I purchased an EX-L 2WD for $25,875. Dealer doc fee was 579 which brought total to $26,454 plus tax and title. Invoice including destination was ~$26,690. Assuming Honda hold back is 2% of dealer invoice, the true dealer cost is ~$26,111. I assume the dealer is making around 250 plus any hidden incentives, i.e. floor plan reimbursements, by adding in the doc fee. My thinking is they need to make something and that amount is fine with me. I was pleasantly surprised by the quotes as most were at the same price point and $800 below what I was prepared to pay based on this board and my research. The car had the usual dealer junk on it, nitrogen in the tires, mud guards, wheel locks, trunk tray, sun roof wind deflector, paint protection, and body side moldings (I wanted the side moldings). They threw all of the dealer add on's in for free. To purchase I emailed internet sales at 5 dealers, got quotes, and then chatted on the phone with the top two dealers. Thanks for posting here. Point of sale information was very useful given "invoice" price doesn't mean the same thing it did a few years ago.

    Quick summary:
    EX-L Silver 25,875 included destination charge
    Doc fee 579
    Total before taxes 26,454

    Again I consider this a good price...hey I bought it didn't I, and assume Honda is trying to get units out before the new RAV4 comes out and is also feeling pressure from the Koreans hence the deal

    It's Norm Reeves Honda West Covina , CA / David or Richard

    Honda CR-V LX

    MSRP 22695 + 830 (destination and handling)
  • kumihokumiho Posts: 3
    This is LX 2WD MSRP (lowest end), not EX-L (highest end). Are you sure that you get the right model?
  • Sorry Guys, my bad . It's a LX 2wd
  • Thought so. Thanks for owning up. LOL

    In the La area, have been looking for this vehicle all month. Finally settled on a price that I think is fair - maybe not the best seen but fair.

    Quoted OTD 29.6K. Since it is end of the month, am heading to Dealer tonight and see if I come back with the vehicle or whether they try to add a lot of shannigans. I will post my results.

    My 2013 Honda CR-V EX-L AWD buying experience.

    Price was $28,000 Out-Of-Door (which includes Tax, Title, Registration and Extra Power Tran Warranty)
    My APR is 0.49% for 48 months. I also had an option of 0.99% for 60 months which i didn't opt.
    I went thru Pen Fed.
    Dealer gave 7 years/100,000 miles on POWER TRAN warranty(which is usally its 5 years/60,000 miles).

    Am not really sure if i got good deal for what i have paid.
  • Got a CR-V EX AWD for 27,000 OTD in NJ. Is it a good deal?
  • Can you tell us where you got it from and what was the price breakdown.
  • Firstly, I want to thank Brian for his great advice.

    Hi Jack,
    I bought the car at O'Donnell Honda last night. LX AWD without options $23,937 OTD. I followed Brian's suggestions and waited until end of month. Did everything via internet, car came to dealership yesterday and i was told it was ready to pickup. Did the paperwork and drove off the dealership in less than an hour. I dealt with couple of people at O'Donnell and finally worked with Shayne. He is a nice guy to work with definitely. Good luck.

  • Thanks Brian. My family of 4 thank you for your advice and saving us money. I wouldn't have done it without your help.

    I purchased a certified car from them recently-20 days back.
    They sold me car with clean carfax.My mistake,i thought its reliable and I didn't do much research.
    After 15 days ,I came to know that it had some accidental history"side impact collison"
    I went to dealership and after long discussion, they are ready to trade in the car with the same price in which they sold me.
    Now,I am thinking to go with new,instead of again facing all these issues and stress.
    Please advice.

    looks like they got you bent over the barrel. I'm assuming you cant get your money refunded and walk away. thats what i would do with this dealership.. my advice is email about 30 dealerships with make and model you want. get there best price. try to get it in writing by email so you could present it to paragon honda if they wont give you a good deal.
    i think 500 below invoice would be a good price for any model CRV.
    Doc fee's are $75. Paragon would be selling you Vehicle for $425 below invoice price. I would think thats the least they could do for you.

    Thanks Brian.I started doing what you suggested.
    Can I return the vehicle and walk away?I love to do that but I am not sure what to do and what will be implication incase they didn't take it back.
    So,i agree to trade in at same price on which they sold me.
    Its just 20 days since i purchased my car and I am so upset now.Lesson learned.
    Please suggest.
    Which site is reliable to get invoice price of car?

    Read the fine print. I would find legal advice from a professional. I would walk away from paragon if i could. They dont deserve your hard earned money.
    Check out edmunds home page you can find pricing on all vehicles.
