Are you talking about Civic or CRV? That can't be CRV price but I see Civic LX listed as 24,500 on honda website.
Civic cvt transmission- website is listing 25,598 currently.

OK took the plunge today, white ex financed total all in $36337.17. I think it was a great deal, as I left a Friend of mine was looking for a AWD LX the guy gave me a price of $32750. My buddy came in and signed the deal today too. Thanks Number 7 Honda! Glad its done!
I was able to get Honda Downtown in Toronto to price-match this deal -- it compared favourably to my paid unhaggle search. While I was open to going into November since the promos can only get better on 2017s, my guess is that the selection is probably thinning a bit.

Jeffrey, so you financed the $36337.17 amount ?
Can i ask at what rate and for how long?
I was planning on paying cash, but maybe this works out better? Congrats on your ride

Yes, I financed at the promo rate for 60 months @2.99%, which was a smidge lower than what my secure line of credit is at. Given that the cost of borrowing is still incredibly low (I think their 24 month is @0.99%), I'd consider parking the cash in either a high-interest savings account or in a reasonably stable investment -- there are tons of ETFs where you're pretty much assured a better return.

Would I be able to get the breakdown of your guys deals on the EX that you got, so I have all my ducks in a row when I go into the dealer?

Vehicle Price:
Freight PDI
Fees
Anything else?
I don't think you need that -- freight & PDI is standard. Fees too. Tax is relative to the vehicle price you arrive at -- so that does make a difference.
I was prepared to go in with this approach but didn't need to negotiate because I had a hard, all-in number and sent it to the sales guy in advance of my visit, saying that I would like something in that ballpark. He assured me in email that he could do something for me but was vague. When I got there, he said that I didn't need to negotiate because he'd already cleared the price-match with the manager. I really appreciated that -- though I knew that the conditions were in my favour (initiated contact at the end of the month; came to the dealership on the 31st; they are already marketing 2018 and need to clear inventories; prepared to be flexible on colour & financing). I was also prepared move on to other Greater Toronto Area dealers if this fell through. But thankfully, I didn't have to play that ridiculous game. In fact, the sales guy was thankful to me for coming back to him (I'd done a test drive earlier). And I had a great customer experience.

I'm looking into getting a 2018 CRV Touring model. Can anyone recommend a strategy going into the dealer? I'm probably looking to finance the vehicle.

Is it worth bringing carcost/unhaggle into the discussion during negotiations? or is their "invoice price" not accurate? What are some deals people have been able to get on Touring models?

Thanks

still negotiating CRV EXL with dealers in metro Vancouver, a bit frustrated, only get invoice + 9xx so far, it looks like Ontario offers much better price than BC... anyone knows what kind of offer from Honda in Nov?
not the worst considering how many people just buy MSRP. Try and get some accessories thrown in to make yourself feel better. Make sure you are getting both the cargo mat and the front mat if you ask for free mats.

Just got a 2017 Touring for $37985 all in (freight, PDI, etc) before tax, trade and $750 rebate. Financed at 2.49 over 48. Basically CCC invoice +$550. There's someone on this forum who was offered CCC/Unhaggle invoice +$300 which I think is the best one so far, but I was happy with this deal.

i know you might not be able to afford it but by turning down 0.99% 24 months financing, you are losing out a free discount. The difference is $1600

I do not recommend seat covers but, if you do want them, make sure they are specific to your car so that there will be no chance of them ever impeding the function of the airbags. Seat covers can slide around and cover the airbag.
Hey Pete! I was skeptical about seat covers too because of the airbags. However, I came across these ones: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B073F7 ... UTF8&psc=1

Those were posted by someone else in a Honda forum I came across. Not fully wrapping around. I get them on Monday, so will give them a whirl and will report back on how they go.

I have looked into the stock tires of the Honda CRV - Bridgestone Ecopia - I notice they aren't the best rated for rain & snow (according to some review websites). Living on the west coast (Vancouver Island)....I am debating whether to get proper snow tires or not. Normally we don't face a whole lot of snow, but last year and apparently this year we will have more of a winter than usual (possible of having some good snow falls). It is even snowing as I type this and I just went out to test the CRV out in this wet snow that I am getting (about 2-3 inches of wet snow). The CRV performed well, it slipped a bit going down a big hill, going up hill was no problemo... Although it didn't face huge issues, but going downhill made me think whether I should get proper snow tires... WITH THAT BEING SAID, now that winter is arriving, did anyone switch to winter tires?? What kind? and how much did they cost?

I was hoping to get by this winter, but the following winter (when my finances are looking a bit better) I was planning on getting winter tires on their own set of rims. Or maybe I should just step up to the plate this winter and get them snow tires.

I have 11,000kms on the current stock tires.

I hope they work. Personally, I never used seat covers. If the interior is kept clean it has always lasted for me.
I know Vancouver Island well. Lived there for a dozen years. Spent quite some time there last Winter too. Got stuck in Vancouver because all flights were cancelled. You had a bad winter out there. You must live up island if it is snowing.
I am in Ottawa and I just bought winter tires from Canadian Tire. Continental Winter SI. Were on sale for $159. (flyer was 179 but the guy charged me 159...didn't mention the mistake to him :)
BTW, my stick tires were Hankook.
Is it solipsistic here? Or is it just me?

You can often get good deals for winter tires with decent life left from kijijii. Keep an eye out.
