    I honestly thought about this. At least give them a chance to solve the issue first.
    Thanks for the input.

    So yesterday we hosted a birthday party in our home and one of the parents that came is a Lead Technician for a local Acura Store.

    And, I found out what an ILX is! Never heard of one nor have I seen one.

    In his words..." A nice car, a Glorified Civic".

    So, now I know!

    Personally I think I would save the 5000.00 difference.
  • Sorry to get off topic, but how can you finance $21,000 for $250 a month. Thank you

    I tried calculating lease cost myself using on a Honda LX in the state of Florida. So I can't exactly say how accurate my numbers are until I test them against the dealers numbers but I think they are in the ballpark. What I got was:

    Final Negotiated Price:23700
    Down Payment:1250
    Sales Tax: 7.19%
    Months 36
    MF: .00083
    Car Value At end of Lease: 14088

    Total monthly payment 248.99

    If anyone has any comment on any of the numbers I'd be interested in hearing

    Hi isellhondas....I'm not in the US right now and I sent a dealer a question and they never got back to me and I was wondering if by chance you had any advice. The difference in price between the CRV LX and EX is several thousand dollars. And the one thing I absolutely hate about the LX is those black side view mirrors that don't match the color of the vehicle. Of all the other EX additional items, I really don't care about any of them. I do like the sunroof but 80% of the time my wife is asking me to close it.
    So what I'm wondering about is, can I lease an LX and put on EX side view mirrors? Spend a few hundred dollars and save a few thousand. Within the question is the question is that considered a vehicle modification by Honda and is it allowed?

    I saw a few ILXs before I left the US and I don't think they are bad looking on the outside. As always at least lately, its whats under the hood that's the letdown. Acura has gotten so many things wrong over the last 10 years. I used to work for a Japanese telecommunication company which wasn't very Americanized and was easily influenced by they their supposedly knowledgable American staff. But that Honda/Acura top management has been so misled for so long by what I'm guessing is a bunch American MBAs that know nothing about the auto industry is a mystery to me.
  • In the past I've typically negotiated an OTD price via email/phone prior to going to the selected dealer to pick up/purchase a vehicle.

    While the 0 down $290/35 months for an LX CRV deals are attractive, the final net capitalized cost of the vehicle is $25,131. TrueCar target is $23,264 approximately $1,900 less.

    Trying to decide if it's worth negotiation for an OTD price, then switching to lease prior to financing, or if the national program doesn't have wiggle room.

    I'm very much in the same mode as you. But when I was looking at CRV-LX numbers FW or AWD I don't even see a MSRP that's as high as your net cap cost. Can you elaborate?
  • Hi All....would sure appreciate latest information on a 24 month, 12,000 mile per year lease(apr ,residual,) for cr-v lx base model in the state of California. My credit rating is at the top of the rankings.
