We're browsing offers from multiple dealers on 2016 CRV's.

Mostly we buy EXL Navi and Touring and we usually buy a few cars at one time, normally not all from the same dealer.

We always ask for a price +++, that means, Out the Door (OTD) with fees, tax, tag, prep, etc, etc, all included.

We pay cash and settle the full invoice.

Currently, we have 2 offers via email for a 2016 Touring for 31,275 OTD (includes local sales tax and everything else)

At times, we do throw in a trade from an earlier model year but never before we have the +++ price so we can calculate the true price knowing there is a significant sales tax reduction as the tax is calculated only on the difference paid (ie. 10k instead of 29k)

You should probably return that warranty and get a quote online from another dealer. You can find them much cheaper online.

We never buy extended warranties, they are a cash cow for the dealers.

Just picked up one 2016 Touring Black Black for 31,175 OTD .. includes sales tax,tag,title,prep,fees everything, that was total price paid, no financing

Will pickup a few more

Nice! Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. I never buy extended warranties either. That's how the dealer gets "free" money.

Never buy them either.....in fact bought our 2011 CRV EX-L and took it to Nicaragua in 2011, thus no warranty! Even had a few dopey salesman say--Honda is a global company, of course your warranty will be covered..not

Thanks for the tip! We didn't shop around at all, but did make the decision before-hand to get an ext. warranty. I'm busier than ever with work (used to do all my own maintenance) and we keep our cars for 8-10 years. It's good peace of mind to know that we're basically "financing" our repairs, and only have to worry about the wear-ables (rotors, tires, wipers, fluids, etc.). It was either that, or jump into leasing for the same reason. But financially it didn't make sense for us to lease. This was the compromise.

Anywho, thanks again! Will def do some reading. So far it looks like people around here, CRVOC, tend to like Honda Care over aftermarket ext warranties. I like the sound of it already

cheers!

GAP Insurance +$774
I got a year of GAP insurance via my auto insurance company for $56. Only need it until the loan balance drops below the Blue Book value, which is probably about 12-18 months through a 5-6 year loan if you finance the lot and don't drive huge distances all the time. You take a 2015 EX-L off the lot, it's worth $27,500. So sounds like you don't even need this at all.

Finance Charges 3.39% 6 years: $2,852.90
I went to lendingtree.com to get a whole bunch of quotes, wound up doing rather better than the offer had via the dealership (who I think don't get any commission on those, they didn't seem to care less how I got the cash to pay them). Wound up with 2-3 credit inquiries on my report from that. For about this much over this long, figure $800 or so per percentage point.

Then as Coastie says, $2,000 is too much for that warranty. I got a quote from Hyannis Honda Care last year for $1,000 - $1,100 for that one depending on the deductible.

For real HondaCare warranty - check Hyannis and Saccarri Honda. They will give you a great price on Honda Care warranty! I think I paid $1170 for 8 year/120,000 miles with $0 deductible. Definitely don't buy a 3rd party warranty.

Toyota has made it more difficult to get warranties from out of state. There is a place in Kansas that sells Toyota warranties cheap. You can no longer buy them on the phone but if you drive through Kansas, you can still buy it cheap from them.

Another bump for real HondaCare. We got ours from Saccucci online. We recently bought a '15 Pilot and I was surprised the dealer was pushing some 3rd party warrantee I had never heard from rather than the HondaCare package, which they offered when we bought our '09 CRV. On the surface, the two plans offered the similar protection, but I have more faith in the HondaCare to get Honda service and genuine Honda parts than the 3rd party deal. I don't recall the price paid right now, but the HondaCare from Saccucci was actually cheaper as well (went with a 7 year 120k 0 ded plan, we'll max out the 120k limit before the years).

We buy Honda for the reliability and tend to drive them until they die. Back in the day I never bought the extended warrantee, but when we got the CRV with awd I figured it might be a good investment (haven't needed it yet). The new Pilot is filled with so many electronic gizmos and screens that I can't imagine not having one. I trust the mechanicals a lot more than the electronic wizardry.

Can i cancel my Vehicle Service Contract and get one from another dealer for cheaper? What did others on here pay for their VSC?

"To cancel the contract, you must bring the contract to the selling dealer, along with a notarized affidavit that states the mileage on your vehicle at the date of your cancellation request."

"In the event of a cancellation of the contract within the first 60 days, you are entitled to a full refund, provided no claim has been authorized or paid."

Do they have notary officials at the dealership?

How about starting your own thread instead of thread hijacking ?

You didn't see if your current one is HondaCare or a 3rd party.

If it is HondaCare, I would contact Hyannis or Saccucci Honda and ask for their advice. I read on the Pilot forums and that Saccucci worked with one of the individuals. I believe the process was that you had to cancel HondaCare with original dealer and then Saccucci can verify that, you can buy from them plus an additional charge ($100?). In this original situation, the original dealership dragged their feet on canceling this and had to be prompted. Again, contact the company you want to buy from and ask their advice before you do anything.

If it is a 3rd party warranty - you will need to look at their guidelines. The one my dealer was offering did allow for canceling within 30 or 60 days.

Coral, thanks for the response. It is definitely HondaCare warranty and not 3rd party. After reading what others were paying for their's i realize now i paid way too much. If there isn't anything Hyannis or Saccucci can do i will go ahead and just cancel the warranty i have with the dealer i bought my CR-V from.
