2013 and earlier-Honda Civic Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I'm currently shopping for a 2012 LX Sedan Automatic in the DFW area and all the quotes come back @ $17,200. Is this a good price considering the current incentives?
  • jipsterjipster Posts: 5,344
    If they have a lot of cars on the lot, you can probably do better. Go out and look. If you're getting quotes at $17,200, try for $16,500.
  • Is anyone able to get the 2013 Civic LX for less than MSRP yet?

    Based on your previous experiences, historical years, models, is it likely I can get it for about $800-1000 below MSRP in the next 30-60 days?
    It appears the 2012 Civic was offered at > $1000 discount within <3 months of release. Was that an exception because of the initial reviews and response?

    Are the '13 models even out yet? Thought they'd debut early next year?

    Picked up my 2012 Civic LX Sedan today at $17700 OTD. (Base: $16,1xx + Tax: 7% (approx. $1250) + fees). I thought OTD probably can go lower, but 4 other dealers did not want to beat this OTD.

    2013 LX is also available with new tail lights and built in rear view camera; other than that, everything pretty much same.
  • Automatic?
  • Bought a 2012 Civic LX today for 17800 OTD, plus 2 years free maintenance.
  • joseedwin - from where did you buy ? What was sale price quoted ?

    Just bought a 2012 Civic LX from Ron Norris Honda in Titusville, FL. I requested a price from their website and received a detailed quote with the best price of any Central Florida dealer. I paid $17867.44 OTD including 6% tax. Very and out in 90 minutes.

    Automatic. ~26-27 mpg in the city.
  • I bought a 2012 Civic LX Auto for $18,054 OTD from Burns Honda, Marlton NJ on 1/1/13

    Sale Price $16,300.00
    Vehicle Theft Protection $99.50
    Sales Tax 7% $1,147.97
    Tire fee $7.50
    4 Year Registration $301.00
    Doc Fee $199.00
    Total $18,054.97 OTD. Got 0.9% Honda Financing.

    Vehichle had 9 miles on it with following dealer installed options
    - Wheel locks
    - Window etching
    - mud gaurds
    - trunk tray

    I am not sure if this is a good deal or not, but I think I should not have gone for the Vehicle theft protecton $99.50 and questioned the 4 year Registration fees. NV MVC site has a calculator and it comes out to $198.xx for 4 year registration.

    Overall it was good experience.

    Thanks to Brian and all others contributing to this forum, this is the second car purchase I made based on the information from this forum. It helps a lot!!!
  • jipsterjipster Posts: 5,344
    Congrats. Sounds like a good deal. The vehicle theft and registration are minor compared to the overall discount.
  • I bought it from Neil Huffman in Clarksville, Indiana
  • Hi all. I recently purchased a 2013 civic EX with an OTD price of 22432 and was curious if I did okay. The dealer add ons included trunk tray, and wheel locks, tinted windows, mud flaps, and the door liner things I think. I haven't seen anyone else post their purchase price on the 2013 models anywhere else so I thought I'd ask.

    Looking to buy 2012 LX Auto...please post latest prices paid for this model. The information on this board is very useful and helps level the playing field while negotiating with the dealers. Thanks in advance!
  • In MD looking for best price for 2013 Civic EX-L (no nav) sedan before tax title, etc. Thanks.
  • bck2bck2 Posts: 6
    Ended up buying 2013 LX auto model. Base price 17,850 + TTL = 19,500 OTD.
    Dealership is in central NJ (7% tax).

    The best price I was quoted for 2012 LX auto model was 16,700 + TTL. I decided to spent a little more for 2013 model, which comes with Bluetooth, rear camera, better quality interior and stylish exterior. Also, according to Edmunds review, it is quieter (road noise) than 12 and has better suspension. Can't verify this unless you have driven both cars for a while.

    Good luck to prospective buyers.

    Just picked up 2013 Civic sedan EX-L with nav. MD - 24100 OTD.
  • I want to pick up a 2013 Civic EX (L.A., CA) and I'm planning on being able to cut a check for at least $10k at the time of purchase and using this as a negotiating tool. How much do you think I could get it for out OTD?

    Hoping they'll see the $$ I'm dropping and be more flexible.
  • cebaceba Posts: 1
    What I would do is actually go to a credit union, and try to get a car loan approved first. That way you can negotiate as if you were paying cash, because you would be able to pay the entire thing right then and there. You work out the price that you would want, and once you get there, if they happen to offer you a better rate, you have the option to try for that, or just use your loan @ credit union.
  • Does anyone know if $18,300 + TTL (OTD is around $19,700) is a good price for 2013 CIVIC LX in Texas? The taxes here are 6.25%.
  • $23,978 OTD With the remote starter included..
    including $762 60 month finance charge and TTL
    MA tax is 6.25%
  • jipsterjipster Posts: 5,344
    MA tax is 6.25%

    I don't want to figure out 6.25% sluggomom. Basically how much did you pay for the car and add on the doc. fee, everything else is irrelevant. ;)

    So I guess I should have done a little more homework before walking into different dealers today.

    I knew to negotiate but never even thought to negotiate the PRICE of the car. How crazy is that.
    Anyway I wanted to know if the deal I got was a good one and if it wasn't already obvious this is the first new car I own.

    36 month lease, 170$ a month
    3,042 Down Payment to cover Taxes, Title but not license plates.
    The Residual value of the car at the end of the lease term was a little over 12,000

    So how badly did I get taken? I only placed a deposit, any way to back out if I was completely screwed over?

    As long as you didn't drive off the lot, you should be get out of it. Just ask for your deposit back

    With that high down payment you should have a lower monthly.

    Local dealership is about $20lessamonth with $3k down. So not bad, but not great.

    Can't negotiate residual.

  • jipsterjipster Posts: 5,344
    Sounds good. Thanks
  • Went shopping today for a lease. First time going to this NJ dealer. The best offer they gave me for a 2013 Civic EX-L was with $1250 down all fees and licenses included

    $269 per month OTD with 39 months 10K
    $289 per month OTD with 36 months 12K

    That is it!

    Thought they could do better so I left.

    Thoughts anyone??

    Hello Everyone - Went to the Honda dealer today to look for a used Civic for my 17 year old daughter..... Well they wanted way too much for a user 2009 or 2010 so I entertained my wife and looked at leasing a new one. This is what I got quoted...

    $1000 down
    LX - 195 month out the door - Taxes fees etc.
