    Have you tried any dealers in New york. Doc fee's in N.Y. are only 75. The sale price of your vehicle in N.Y. will be around 800 below invoice due to our states lower doc fee's... . Always compare price in both states to determin the market value when buying a new vehicle. RT 22 is giving you a good deal.

    good job

  • Hello Kerri317,

    It depends on the state. I have been doing a great deal of research. I have gotten 8 quotes in New Jersey and the lowest one on the Honda CR-V 2013 EX without options was $24,675. The quote was from BURNS Honda in South Jersey. I still plan on negotiating when and if I get there.

    Hope this helps.
  • Hello Everyone,

    I have leanred a great deal from edmunds and really appreciate everyone experience. Thanks for sharing. I have been looking to purchase for about 1 month now. This is the offer I was given from Planet Honda on RT. 22.

    EX AWD --- $24,779
    TAX -------- $1,804.81 (Thought sales tax in NJ was 7% guess I was wrong)
    DMV ------- $289.00
    DECOR ---- $595.00 (They said it was for hand painted pin stripe and door guards)
    TIRE TAX -- $7.50
    ETCH ------- $349.00
    NITRO ------ $59.95
    Online Reg -- $10.00
    DOC --------- $398.95

    OTD --------- $28,293.00

    I would like the following options (Dealership Prices): Body Side Molding $499, Door Visors $399, Running Boards $699 and Hood Air Deflector $399.

    I was not satified with Planet Honda 's price so I did not go back and did not negotiate with them. I did get another quote from BURNS Honda for:

    Car --- $24,675 but have not gone to the dealer yet. The options were cheaper about $400 for everything I want.

    Can anyone give me some adive on negotiating with the dealership? It is at the end of the month so I hope just showing up will make them cut the price.

    Thanks for anyone that can help.

    Check out college hill honda parts. they are the, cheapest , closest price to dealers invoice price. The exact dealers invoice price on these parts are hard to find/ know but these prices are a good start and the best price on line

    This is a tuff market with Crv,And Accord.... dealers do not want to discount much.
    I would take into consideration buying these honda parts online and have a shop close to your house install. you most likely will save a hundreds dollars doing it this way.

  • Brian,

    Thanks for responding. Can you negotiate with the dealership if you bring them their on-line quote?
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 5,142
    I would try to get your best quote from another dealer also. Try to lower the price of your negotiated deal.
    Go to the dealership the last day of this month. you always have the best leverage on this day.
    Tell dealership if he wont lower price you will not buy Crv from him. make dealer match your best offer or tell them you will walk.
    The only problem is dealer has your deposit. You would have to take dealership to small claims court.
    This might end bad be prepared....

    good luck

  • Trying to get a 2013 CRV LX FWD ,in Nc, looking around $21800 + TTL, is that too low ?
  • I am working with a dealer in the Atlanta, GA area and received a quote I believe can go down a few hundred to be a "best price" out the door.

    2013 Honda CR-V EX AWD

    $ 24,731.00 Vehicle Price ( Includes Destination )
    $ 599.00 Administrative Fee
    $ 1,826.93 7% tax
    $ 22.00 State Fees ( Title and Lemon Law )
    $ 27,947.93 Total Price / Drive Out*

    *Splash Guards , Paint Protection Included

    What do you think? Flexible?

    I would jump on this deal in a second if the molding and edge guards were included since the total price is a few hundred more than competitors.
  • I got a second quote last night from BURNS Honda in NJ. Here is what they said,

    $24,675 ---- CAR
    $695 ---- VEK (Vehicle Enhancement Kit) -- includes mud guards, hand painted pinstripe,
    wheel locks, acid inscribed window etching, custom fit cargo tray
    $337 -------- body side molding installed
    $344 -------- door visors installed
    $272 -------- hood air deflector installed
    $1,842.61 --- TAX
    $249.00 ----- DOC
    $7.50 ----- Tire tax
    $301.00 ----- DMV

    $28,723.11 ---- Total

    I think this price should be lowered. From my experience of getting online quotes and going to the dealership in NJ, they alway add some type of package. One dealership added DECOR ($595) and now I see VEK ($695). I am planning to go to another dealer today and seeing what they can do for me. I will keep everyone posted. Can accessories be negotiated. Brian thanks for all the great advice you have given me. I really what to get the car for about 625 cheaper then I think it would be a good deal.

    Rule number 1

    Stop running around to all these dealerships wasting your time and gas.
    Check dealerships inventory first.... before calling them.

    Find as many dealerships that are closest to your home. Call each dealerships Internet manager and tell each one you will buy today if he meets your price offer and options wanted on vehicle. Seems like most CrV's have alot of dealer add on's..

    Once you found the deal your looking for.... you could give dealer a small refundable deposit to hold car or drive to dealership to seal deal..

    Do not trust any sales person telling you to come in. Internet or Sales Manager speak with first to confirm your deal..

    The last 2 days of any month are the best time to buy. If you could...You buy the last day of any month this will help you get the best deal of the month. Some dealers will move a car off there lot on the last day cheaper than beginning or middle of month trying to meet that manufactorers selling incentive for the month.

    good luck

  • Brian is right! You can do all this by phone and email. Everything is negotiable. If you had a quote from another dealer for less money I am sure the VEK package would go way down and possibly disappear. If you don't want it tell to leave it off your car! $695 is a lot for mud guards, wheel locks and a cargo tray.

    Mudguards online $67.... very easy to install
    wheel locks...........$36..dealers cost might be $15
    cargo tray.............$70

    Dont let these dealers rip you off on accessories. Check online prices first

  • Does anything think tossing in an add-on to that price is asking too much?
  • brian125brian125 New york / S.C. myrtle beachPosts: 5,142
    Cant hurt to try.

  • Thank you all of the contributors shared the buying experience.
    After I read thru last 6 months of this forum, I learned many tricks in how to negotiate/buy a new car. Then, I bought a new 2013 Honda CRV EX-L 2WD. out the door price is $26,714.
    Here is the breakdown:
    $26,176.50 Car (including destination charge, splash guards, wheels locks, & lifetime powertrain warranty*)
    $300 Tax
    $39 Tag
    $198.50 Closing fee/doc

    *Lifetime powertrain warranty needs to pay $100 deductible each time.I can do my own maintanence like oil change & tune up.
    I heard Honda's engine & transmission is very good. I hope I don't have to use the warranty!

    Hello Everyone,

    I bought a first car with the 1st dealer that I went to in Maryland. I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not and was wondering if I could get some advise! I guess I can't return it but wanted some views.

    Got the

    CRV 2013 AWD LX with Wheel locks and Paint matched door moldings (as per the receipt)
    for $23,000
    plus Taxes $ 1,392
    dealer processing charges $ 200
    Tags $ 187
    Platinum Coverage service for 100,000 miles or 7 years for $ 1,198.15 (is this a good deal? I have no clue but I agreed to pay for this).

    The OTD vehicle price was $24,779 plus $1,198.15 for the extra platinum coverage.

    I have the following questions:

    1. What is the average OTD price for the 2013 CR-V EX-L with Navigation in NJ/NY.

    2. Is CR-V EX-L w/Nav a better option or Acura RDX AWD w/o Nav. Assuming (based on the consumer discussions) that Honda's navigation system is not all that great.

    Save your money......... Buy a garmin nuvi for under $200. The new models have a 5' screen, lane guidance with Arrows and Voice prompts. If you do not need blue tooth............. The Nuvi lm50 is a great machine for the price. My 2012, X-5 has the Nav and id rather use my garmin.

  • Should the tax be on the vehicle cost alone or should it be including the destination and dealer fees? I have seen people post prices both ways.

    It seems the tax can be an extra $500+ if its all grouped.

    Here is your breakdown
    Sale price of Vehicle plus any options/ accessories
    destination charge
    doc fee's
    sales tax on above amount// your states tax rate
    then they add after taxes dmv fee's
    this total would be your out the door price/

    Pin striping and door edge guards cost the dealer virtually nothing.

    Nitrogen in the tires is a scam. Air is about 80 percent nitrogen. My daughter is a chemical engineer. She finds it funny people actually pay for nitrogen to be put in tires.

    And of course, the dealer documentation fee is simply more profit for the dealer.

    These three things actually make Planet Honda' price for the CRV $25,332 rather than $24,779.

    You should see the Accord forum these dealers are robbing people blind.

    Hi, I'm looking into getting the 2013 CRV EX FWD some time this year, but I was wondering if it is absolutely ridiculous to try to get this car for $25,000 OTD in southern California?
  • For the platinum coverage, my friend negotiated to nearly 1/2 what you are paying.
  • Just got pricing from a dealer in Atlanta:
    Sale Price: 22503+Tax: 1462.70 (6.5% since March)+D.O.C(600)+Tag and Lemon etc (69)=OTD 24634.

    Is it a good deal?

    In addition, he mentioned "As with factory equipped drive out prices from other dealers, ours includes the quote price, destination charge, documentation fee,tax,title application and Georgia Lemon Law. Dealer accessories are not included." Am I missing sth or do I need to add some options?

  • Thank you for the reply.

    I need to go see the dealer tomorrow. Maybe I'll cancel the extra platinum coverage if they don't reduce the price. Initially they wanted around $2,280.
  • You should. It's because my friend bought the same 7yr/100000 mile warranty for 600 last summer in SC.

    Hello everyone I closed the deal this Wednesday. Think I got an OK deal in New Jersey. I paid $28,573 minus $1000 trade-in value for my Honda Civic 2000 with 189,000 miles. So my OTD price was $27,573 with 4 options: the hood air deflector, door guards, side molding and window guards. The Vehicle enhancement Kit (VEK) which was included in the price gave me mud guards, wheel locks, acid inscribed window etching and custom fit cargo tray.
    This was an exhausting experience and next time I will take Brians advice and do most of my negotiating on the phone. I know the sales people have to make a living, but man dealing with them is very difficult. Overall I learned a great deal of information from peoples experiences and thanks all of you for sharing.
