My wifes 92 Accord EX was totaled Thursday in a multi-car rear-end pile-up
(she's OK). We've been discussing buying a CR-V for some time, and now it
looks like it will be sooner than later. We found a 2007 Red w/ Grey Leather
, 4 (four) miles, EX-L for $25.4K at a local dealer today.
I suppose these things are so hot that there wil not be much of a discount.
What are other peopl;e paying for these around the country ?
You can find the list price at Honda.com or Yahoo.
My friend just got one in Canada and they wouldn't budge a cent.
I Canada they are charging 35% more than the USA price, the current
exchange rate has been below 10% for some time.
He also paid significant extra for decent wheels on the base model.
Purchase price of vehicle was $24,253 including $595 delivery charge,
a 4.5% savings off
$25,395 sticker price. Final 'out-the-door' coast, with all fees and
taxes, was $26, 279.
I guess I did OK, considering it was the ONLY one of its kind in the
area (others were AWD, or had NAV). It was like tearing out the sales
managers fingernails with pliers to get this price. I'm glad I left
the wife at home for the 'negotiation phase'. The stars in her eyes
would have sabotaged my ability to bargain.
My wife wanted that Tango Red CR-V EX-L so bad, she would have just
grabbed the keys, driven it off the lot, and told the Sales Manager to
send ME the bill. She's had that '07 CR-V glossy pamphlet, with 'her
car' on the cover, on the kitchen table since March. Like: Do you GET
the HINT ?
