    I have been in the market for a new car all month and started really negotiating with dealers in the past couple of weeks.

    Last week, I received an email from Planet Honda in NJ stating that they were selling a 2013 CRV EX AWD for 23,200. Planet Honda was a little too far for me to get to so I started shopping around using that price as a starting point for negotiations.

    Open Road Honda in Edison NJ was the only dealer willing to undercut Planet Honda. They came in at $22,900 (plus accessories delivery and installation charges)

    vehicle selling price (with all extras) $24134.00
    sales tax 7% $1895.88
    NJ tire tax fee $7.50
    doc fee $398.00
    reg/title $282.00

    Total OTD/Delivered $26427.88

    We took advantage of the 0.9% / 60 month finance agreement. I financed most of it (over $24,000) and over the life of the loan Honda Financial will receive a hefty $600.00 LOL.

    Dealing with Open Road was a great experience; they negotiated when most other local companies wouldn't and as long you have fair expectations going into negotiations, you will enjoy the experience of dealing with this company.

    Hello - Can someone help us here?
  • Purchased one on Friday in NY area.

    $26,300 + Tax + DMV

    Called almost 10 dealers in NY/NJ area. No one would go under 26900. Finally one dealer budged on Friday.

    Was not eligible for Conquest cash as I had 2002 Nissan. They claimed they were out of Flex cash (did not believe them).

    Anyway, got one for $1500 under invoice, perhaps could have bargained for couple of hundred more.

    Good luck to every one with your purchase.

  • This sounds like a very good deal. I live in the same area and wants to buy a similar model. Any additional options? Did you go thru Internet or direct deal with a salesperson?
  • Hello all,

    Just wanted to share the price I paid for the 2013 CRV EX-L FWD. Not sure if it is a great deal but it definitely was a good buying experience Norm Reeves Honda in Cerritos, CA. Thanks to the sales rep Susanne Yim.

    Sale Price: $25,998 (including destination fee)
    Flex Cash: -$500 (through Honda financing)
    Didn't qualify for the conquest discount of $500 as I didn't own the qualifying brands
    +TTL & Doc fee

    Hopefully this data helps another prospective buyer.
  • Brian, first of all thanks for keeping this forum going. It was of great help during my purchase.

    I bought it from White Plains Honda. Here are some impressions of the dealerships in the area.

    Yonkers Honda - the internet guy was rude on the phone.
    Curry Honda & Tarrytown Honda - just wished me luck in getting the price I was looking for (1200-1500 below invoice). Curry Honda sent couple of long (canned) emails explaining why dealers in NJ are bad and how it is more expensive to purchase in NJ. Never quote a their own price.
    DCH Paramus - really good, very close to matching the price, but did not close the deal.
    New Rochelle Honda - Went there in person on Friday. The manager came and told me that my price was too low and they will lose money at that prices.

    Walked out and made unplanned stop at White Plains Honda on the way back home. They gave the price I was looking for.

    On Saturday, New Rochelle Honda left three messages on my voice-mail. Well, it just happened to be 31st of the month :-)

    So Brian - your method works!!! Thank you.
  • You did very well on your own, especially since the TrueCar price available through one of their dealers is $25,890 (dest included).
  • Looking for the best out the door price on either a 2013 or 2014 CRV EX-L, 2 wheel drive with no other extras. Going through internet managers. Is there anyone in this area that has a recent experience?

    Thanks so much!

    Thank-you enjoy your new Crv.

    Buying a CRV is not easy with dealerships unwillingness to deal on phone/ email or in dealerships. Supply and Demand on most models dwindling down right now. Knowing how and when to buy helps. You did better than most bringing in several dealerships making your best deal at the end of the month. Who is going to blink first. Most of the time its us not the dealership and they know it.

    I have long standing relationships with alot of honda dealerships my name goes along way when mentioned in deals. I find the problem today is people are reading my posts and dont listen how to buy, so they call some of these dealerships with a price 8/9 days into the month and these dealerships want no part of that. You buy at months end last 2 days last day. I mention certain dealerships that i know how they operate . Do they always sell at our targeted price ?? No But there better than the rest. I have had 2 dealerships ask me to stop posting there names in here cause people calling, emailing with pricing that was so out of the ball park.

    Just reading forum prices from other states does not mean you can get that price in your area. By knowing your area's market price/ how and when to buy will get you the best possible deal along with some of my buying tips.

    Hope the rest did well this month

  • Hi,
    I am looking for the same model and trying to get this price. Since the dealers ask for some proof or documentation, if you are ok would you be able to send us some info on this purchase. It would be very helpful and is much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

  • great job! i'm sorry i missed all of your messages. once i bought the crv i did not come back on - i was sure people would start getting better deals once the 2014's came out. i just needed a car sooner now that we have a baby.

    anyways, i hope R&S was good to you. that's a really good price, especially with all of those add-ons! i got my windows tinted by a local shop for 140 and bought a cargo tray for 75 on ebay. so all in all, i paid 22,715 (including loyalty and 0.9%).

    i did not like dealing with honda of katy, even though they had the lowest sales price. all their add ons and daily phone calls got really tiring.
  • Is it better to get tint at Honda since they know their cars or have some experience with CRV or 3rd parties? The dealer where i bought mine doesn't do tint.
  • i bought an LX which does not have any tint. the EX would have tint, however. if you want "expert" installation, i'd go with an EX. however, if you choose your own tint shop, you'll have the option to choose the quality of film and the darkness. you can also choose to tint the front two windows to have a consistent look all around. it's really up to you. i saw on a few posts that some dealers send their cars to local shops, and just mark it up for the sale. my dealer charges $299 for tint; i paid $140 and got it to look the way i want (20% all around).

  • Pulled the trigger yesterday on a new 2013 black on black ex-l awd with NAV

    got it for 27500 incuding desitination + tax and title

    I like it so far
  • Hi scooter827,
    Can you let me know which dealer you purchased it from ?

    Thanks, appreciate it!
  • I started the research online, had a low price on hand quoted by a dealer that I was ready to pay but the dealer was in Santa Rosa and I am in Mountain View. I took that price to a few local dealers and bought from one who came the closest to it and had the model my wife wanted.
  • Bought 2013 CR-V EX FWD with final OTD price $24,900, with tinited window, splash gaurds, wheel locks, and cargo tray.

    Bought it from Cleo Bay Honda in Killeen, TX last week.
  • still on market for 2013 Honda CRV EX-L I am looking at a $27,500 OTD in phoenix/Scottsdale AZ, closest quote I got is $ 28,200 I am not sure if I have to wait till end of September?

    can any one suggest?.
  • Honda Gallery. Reading, Massachusetts
  • I got a good, not great deal on a 2013 CR-V EX-L AWD - 26,650 OTD after a 1250 trade-in everything included including all weather mats and cargo tray. The trade-in is significant only in that blue book on the trade-in was about $600, so some discount was included in that. I could have probably gotten a slightly better deal in a color I did not want from another dealer; also my region (Oregon) has higher demand for CR-V's than other parts of the country so prices are higher here.
  • Thank you for the info. Unfortunately I am in NJ...
    I am still looking then :)
  • Hi,
    Any luck with providing me some info ? :) I want to go to the same dealers as they are the ones nearest (so to say)... Would really appreciate your inputs!

    thanks once again
  • Hi,

    How much did you pay for yours? I was 10 month Honda Fit was totaled a week ago by some idiot when it was parked outside our house. We might want to upgrade to a bigger car.

    Thank you.
  • $26300 + tax & dmv
  • Thank you so much. I will give it a shot then. Did you get wheel locks? I was really paranoid about the wheels on my Fit.
