Metro Honda in Jersey City, NJ is asking $49k despite their listing on Autotrader for a hair under MSRP.

Riverside Mazda:

Markup - $20K
BS Dealer Add Ons- $4100
Total- $63K

The salesman claim they will not budge on the markup. They have two of them. It's always the same story "Honda is skipping one year of the Type R, that's why these are marked up"

I wish all manufacturers would just start selling their limited enthusiast cars straight from the manufacturer and just delivered to dealers.

I might just go ahead and pick up a used one with low miles and hope for the best.

Are these Cpo’s or brand new?

Brand New
When you indicated Riverside Mazda, wasn’t exactly sure if they were new. Did you check out Rock Honda on their prices?

Not yet. I’ll have to look at their site.

Edit: Rock Honda has a $20k Market Adjustment

everyone keeps saying someone will pay it and yet all these dealers still have cars. I cant deny some are paying way over but I personally think because we all like the car we tend to create "super super demand" giving the dealer the power. I have yet to hear anyone say they cant find the car they want. it seems almost every dealer has one or two. during my search I found more than 100 CW CTR and I looked at most of the dealers I spoke to. THEY STILL HAVE THE CAR FOR SALE!!!! I really enjoy my car I have zero complaints but if I were shopping for it today I would contact each dealer again offer MSRP just move to the next dealer. I think paying over msrp is more justified when I cant find the car. just my 2 cents

agreed but.....since (correct me if I am wrong) there will be a gap year without the new CTR - these dealers can hold onto those cars through 2022. And since the car market is crazy right now ingeneral bc of supply/demand (chip shortage is going to stay for awhile longer) - normal cars are having ADM added to it. My niece recently got a new car - a Mazda CX-3 and they added on $2500 worth of ADM bc of the limited amount of cars available. Regardless - it is what it is - you just either have to call a lot of dealers hoping one will give you a fair buy or.....pay a little more over (since most are getting more for their used cars - one COULD rationalize that it is a wash).

Yep, this is market price discovery at work. If every CTR were sold at MSRP, they probably would have been long gone at this point. The good thing about supply/demand pricing is that shortages are mitigated and more people have a shot to get one (even though paying more sucks I agree). If they keep lingering on dealer lots, they will be forced to lower the prices.

Agreed 100%. There are pages and pages of new/used cars on Autotrader. The inventory is clearly there, it is simply the spread is too wide between the bid and ask. it is hard to argue it is a shortage issue when there are all these CTR listed for sale. It is hard to imagine paying over 50K or 55K for civic (excluding LE).. I would think , or I would hope we are at the top of the price range. I will call back some of these dealers in a few weeks or months , i have a feeling a lot of the inventory will still be sitting there.

CTR is a great car for the performance you get for the value. Go 50K+ range used or new. you are pretty much in a different class of vehicles.
