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



  • dks9dks9 Posts: 10
    That is really good price, congratulation !
  • i am in nj.i bought a 2014 honda crv e-lx standard model i paid $30,668 out the door taxes plates inc.10/13
  • seems like a lot for ex-l. isn't it about same as sticker price?
  • I payed 26,900 plus DOC, title and taxes. I felt like it was a fair deal. I negotiated through email before going to any dealerships. I bet dealerships don't love that way of dealing with buyers but I am a sucker as soon as I walk in. It allows us suckers who are too nice to be less of a push over when it comes to a big purchase!

    I am from Michigan and looking to buy a 2014 CR-V EX-L AWD w/NAV model with an OTD price target of 29,000 or less. Is that something I can get or should I wait for another couple months?

    If not 2014, I can settle for 2013 same trim but with 28,000 OTD price target.

    Thanks in Advance!
  • i paid 28,068 be for tax and tags.

    Just curious about what prices people are paying for 2014 Cr-v ex-l awd with navigation in/around Fairfield County, CT.
    Any numbers to share?
    Thanks in advance.
  • I need to know what a good price would be on a used 2013 Honda CRV EXL FWD With Navigation. One owner, 3000 miles, sold by a dealer in So. California. I will finance all less $2000.00. Please respond.

    This 2013 model CRV EXl fwd/ w nav.... Invoice..... 27,264 the dest charge of 830 has already been paid for by 1st owner. Do not let the dealer try to re add this charge of $830 back onto your deal. This is now a used car deal.

    I would tell dealer you will buy that model for 2500 off the original dealers invoice price of 27,264 . Wait til the end of the month if dealer wont bite at that price lower your offer price to buy making your final offer at 2000 below take it or leave it..

    Me personally i would be firm on atleast 2500 off invoice and here is why?

    Anything lower than 2k is not worth buying on this suv. Remember on Jan, 1st , 2014 and tru that first year if that SUV is totaled or stolen the book value on that honda is considered a 1 year old vehicle by the INS. Co. Your depreciation will be around 2k or more on a 1 yr old CRV so keep that in mind. not to mention if you have a Ins. deductible 500/1000 that is taken off the top of your Total car price that Ins. keeps. So what is your benefit buying a 2013 year Suv driven only 2 months in 2013 and is considered used / opposed to having the full benefit of driven a 2013 vehicle for 12 months or 2014 model..... Price , Price,, Price

    You still have 2 years and 2 month left on the warranty if you buy this vehicle.

    if you need more help i'm here or in the Accord prices paid forum.

    Buying a used 2013 CRV is not likely a cost effective purchase. According to NADA the likely trade value a dealer paid is between $25,000 to $26,000. The NADA retail for such a used unit is about $28,000. With these numbers it would be difficult to have the dealer sell for much less. The thing to recognize is dealers make more profit by selling used vehicles than they do selling new vehicles.

    A new 2014 CRV, EXL with nav has an invoice of $28,234. The Edmunds TMV is $28,746. With a bit of effort, I have always been able to get a better price for a Honda than TMV.

    Why buy a used 2013 when you can likely get a new 2014 for about the same price.

    In addition, Honda has special financing of 1.9% for 60 months on new 2014 CRVs which is probably not available on the used CRV. This makes it even more advantageous to purchase new.

    Ken is right you are better off with a 2014 model or buying a left over 2013 CRV on one of the dealers lots.

    2014 model target price 500 below invoice to invoice price plus any incentives.

    2013 model target price 1500 below to 2000 below. plus any rebates and incentives

    The dealer that is selling that used 2013 model will be in no rush to sell. dealer knows he could easily sucker someone into buying at his price. You are not the one then.

    Most 2013 models should be selling at 1500 below invoice at this time of the year.

  • Can somebody please help me with the invoice for 2014 CRV EX-L AWD? I'm getting a range of $27,170-$28,081 depending on a website. What would be the target price for '14 and for '13 assuming that I can still find one in PA/NJ. Thanks!
  • You guys are awesome, thanks so much! Here's another one for you...I found a Honda dealer who's selling his 2013 CRV demo (same trim), has 2000 miles on it. I offered him $23,764 OTD less tax, title, lic. He came back with a firm $27,366. I countered with 24,764 (2,500 below invoice), final, and told him I would buy today. He stayed firm at $27,366. It's a new car with 2000 miles on it, what does he expect!

    Target price and stand firm on these prices.

    2014 - 500 below to invoice price is your target

    2013 - 1000 below to 2000 below invoice price.

    Make sure you take dealerships doc fee charge into consideration when buying.

    High doc fee charges should be put into your asking price so its a wash on the final bill of sale.

    Supply and Demand and your area will be factors in pricing.

  • I thought I had the right invoice price for this of $27,404 but I'm seeing it higher on a few other sites. Can someone please confirm the invoice price on this please?

  • Hi friends,

    I am getting a dealer quote for a 2014 CR-V EX-L AWD w/ NAV for 31,000 OTD. Is that a good deal? Should I take that or should I shop around with that quote?
  • Thanks Brian. And when you mean that should be our target, do you mean OTD or before tax?

    Your target price should be the Selling price of the vehicle before taxes and dmv fee's.

    Dont forget when Your telling dealerships i will buy for this price xxx....Which should be your starting target price to buy,,,if you cant get that price you work up back towards the dealers invoice price making your best deal.

    ALWAYS include the destination charge of $ 830 onto your invoice price so both you and the dealer are on the same page price wise and there is no confusion at the end when your closing your deal.

    Price is for 2014 Honda CRV ex-l with Nav & AWd. I am Getting $29k price.

    Price, by cost accounting definition, is all dealer cost and all dealer profit. Brian is correct, the only additions to price are the fees and taxes added by the government.

    A dealer who attempts to attach a fee, doc or dealer fee, is simply being deceptive. That dealer is simple segregating the price into components calling one price and the other fee. The truth is both are price. Reading the numerous posts on Edmunds, dealers have been successful in fooling most of the people most of the time. Best not to be duped.

    Perhaps one of the Honda sales folks who lurk on these pricing posts would be kind enough to offer us a dealer's view of such fees.

    I do not sell Hondas.
  • the best time to buy is after newyears day.people are broke and it's cold outside,people are on vacation.The dealers need to pay interest on their loans and have to make a quota for the month.
  • Are you getting this price as out the door? I am getting a $31k as OTD price for the same model and trim in Michigan.

    I received a an internet price of $27,975.00 + (Dest fee, tax,title doc) from 2 dealers here in the NW suburbs of Chicago. Good till the end of the month. I am seeing an invoice of $29,405(already includes the $830 dest fee). Looks like and ok deal to me. I do have a trade-in, which I have not mentioned to them yet.

    Edit - Comes to about $1000 below invoice after adding the dest charge.
  • Thank you, Brian! Do you know the actual exact invoice price for 2014 EX-L AWD with no navigation?

    Posting my info on my purchase since this thread was so helpful. I just purchased a 2014 Honda CRV-EX from Autonation on Thorton Rd. in Lithia Springs (right outside Atlanta), OTD included tag, tax and a 72 month warranty. But the price for the car itself was $23,400 including dealer fees etc. That was the lowest offer I received from all dealerships I contacted and was able to get the dealership from which I purchased to match it. I went with this location since I was able to negotiate up the price of my trade in.

    Was worth doing over the internet and waiting until the end of the month. The price for the same vehicle when I went in for a test drive on October 2, was $24,999.

    Thanks everyone for the info...I've been waiting to purchase this car since the new model came out in 2012. Great so far..except for the speakers...those are god awful!

    The radio is not the problem. The speakers are garbage.. In My 2013 Accord v-6 the speakers are like music is comming out of a tin can. Change / upgrade your speakers......... it will make a world of difference.
