You got 3868.00 off MSRP, that would make it 28,777.00 if your using 32,670.00 as MSRP, invoice is 30,729.00 including destination and handling. That's 1952.00 below invoice, why would they do that and what dealer was it. The best I have been able to do is 2170.00 off 32,670.00 MSRP. Did they by chance add anything to your MSRP like dealer installed items or fees ? If I add Finishing Touch Protection at 795.00 plus a Pro Pac 495.00, plus window tint 200.00 my MSRP would be 34160.00. All of a sudden now I'm getting 3859.00 off MSRP but my bottom line is 30,500.00 out the door. If I factor in the 199.00 bogus administration fee my MSRP would be 34359.00 minus 30,500.00 out the door = 3859.00 discount. I guess it's all in how you look at it, if you got 3868.00 off 32670.00 you did great.
Here's my numbers from post #66:

2020 EX-L AWD
Modern Steel Metallic / Black Leather
MSRP: $32670.00
Discount off MSRP: $3868.00 (so $28,802 purchase price pre-tax/title/doc)
Add-ons: $100.00 for front row window tint

Yes, the $32670 includes the destination fee.

Today (2/29/2020) I purchased:

2020 EX-L AWD
Modern Steel Metallic / Black Leather
MSRP: $32670.00
Discount off MSRP: $3868.00 (so $28,802 purchase price pre-tax/title/doc)
Add-ons: $100.00 for front row window tint
I'm guessing this included some offers like Grad/Military/First Responder/Conquest? The best discount I can find in my area, before any offers, is $2100 (granted, the dealership offers $0 doc fees, so it's almost like getting $2600 off from any other dealership in the area). Add on some Recent Grad and Conquest cash, and now the discount is $3100 off MSRP (or a $29,570 sale price, before taxes), which is a 9.5% discount from MSRP, and you start to see it as a good deal. :)

I bought this 2020 in February and I think the only Honda offer was on the 2019's at the time. Of course I should have waited :/ I purchased through Costco's Auto Buying Program. My 2nd car purchased this way and both times were the best deal. No additional haggling at the dealer. I'm sure there's some additional kickback between Costco and the dealer. But I reached out to 6 other Honda dealers in my area and none came within $500 of this Costco program.

Hi Raj, Good deal. Where did you buy your car? Is there any cash back or incentive involved? Thanks.
Hello, It was in Long Island. Yes, this selling price included Honda Loyalty.
They quoted me $27399 for without Loyalty.

Hello... I purchased an extended HondaCare warranty on my 2020 CR-V Hybrid Touring. It’s a good value if you ask me! I had one on my 2019 Insight Touring that I traded in. Paid $1,085 for it and got $950 back. Owned the car for 14 months and had 26,000 miles on it. My dealer sold me the 8 year/120,000 mile plan for $1,200. I purchased the plan for my Insight from Tauni at College Hills Honda out of Ohio. She was really nice to work with, very pleasant and kind.... did it all over the phone. Also, best to purchase before 6,000 miles to get the best price. I highly recommend HondaCare.
I just bought a 2019 CRV ex
Otd price 25471
Sale price 22458

I was going to go for a 2020 but the special financing for the 2019 at 0.9% for 60 months or 1.9% for 72 months really influenced me especially when you add in the 90-day deferment
Includes mud flaps tinted windows cargo tray floor mats which couldn't be removed LOL I also didn't like their dealer fees which they left on there but they took it off the price.

I was interested in the Honda care warranty a year hundred twenty five thousand miles they offered it to me for $2,800 LOL I declined. I know there's at least two dealerships that are listed online that sell the warranty at cost one is saccucci.

I was actually interested in a third party warranty that I could use anywhere anybody have thoughts on that?

Definitely don't get a third party warrantee, only HondaCare. 3rd parties will try and reject everything (that's their business). HondaCare will try and do the same but to a much lesser degree. In the past I didn't get warrantees but with todays cars having so many electronics juat one module going bad after the original warranty may pay for the warrantee.

And if they approve anything, they will try to source aftermarket or recycled parts instead of dealer OEM as Honda would.

Good point about OEM parts. HondaCare all the way. Anything else is basically a scam. Obviously makes more sense if you're the type to keep the car for a while. I bought D82. 120k/8 year/0 deductible for $1120 from Hyannis

I first drove the CR-V Hybrid in early March but then things shut down, some dealers weren't budging from MSRP, and I also couldn't find the exact car I wanted (EX in Sonic Gray Pearl). I found one "in transit" at a dealer about 200 miles from me and made a deal online on March 22nd. The car finally arrived and I picked it up today.

2020 Honda CR-V EX Hybrid
MSRP: $31,380, plus Roof Rails of $399, so total MSRP $31,779
Sale Price: $29,999, which is $1780 under MSRP (no loyalty or other discounts available on the hybrid)
Trade was 2012 CR-V EX-L with 116K miles and they gave me $8000, over $1,000 more than other dealers I talked with, so I feel I got a good deal.
NYS Sales Tax $1760
Doc fee: $75
Registration and fees: $322 (I will get some of this back)
Out the door after trade: $24,156

Great people to work with, Friendly Honda in Poughkeepsie, NY

That sounds like a great deal. Congrats! Curious: Why did you trade in your 2012? (I have a 2012 EX AWD.)

Two reasons. My wife mostly drove the 2012 CR-V on short trips, where it gets about 22 mpg, we take my 2016 Civic on the highway where it gets about 44 mpg. We will now both use the hybrid for city driving (39 mpg) and the Civic for highway. I also wanted my wife to have all the safety features of Honda Sensing that I have on my Civic.

Oh, and I drove the Hybrid and really like the quiet ride and the electric motor torque.

It's called a heist....you killed the dealer.

I my self am looking at getting a 2020 CRV Hybrid Touring, I did some research and contacted a paid online car buying advice site, these were the results.

2020 CRV Hybrid Touring:

MSRP $37070

Retail Invoice Price of $33950

Dealer Invoice Price of $31853

2% Dealer Drawback of $31853 = $31215



What do you think if I start at $30,000, email and phone methods?

Is this a good deal or outrageous? I'll keep everyone updated.

No Dealer incentives for the Hybrids that I could find, I am not a previous Honda Owner either.

It seems to be difficult to get actual invoice pricing from any free online source, did I get suckered out of $40? Maybe this is worth it because it will save me some time and research on finding where to start negotiating and get to the point without haggling too much.
Did you buy?
