2013 and earlier-Honda Civic Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    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%

    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.

    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...

    36 months, 12 k year Honda lease in NJ

    $1000 down
    LX - 195 month out the door - Taxes fees etc.
    EX - 215 month out the door..

    Any thoughts - besides the price - do you get a new driver a new car????

    Help in Jersey!!!!
  • !8,967 OTD 8% tax in Pa. Very happy with price. Conflicted on Honda Care purchase Opinions?
  • Bought a 2013 Civic EX Automatic this weekend with mud flaps, wheel locks, and cargo tray for $20100 on the road. 6% tax here in Maryland. They are dealing big time on the new civics.

    Please post name of dealer. Also what was the price of the car before tax/admin fees? The state tax rates differ for everyone.

    Price of car (+ destination) =
    Tax =
    Admin. fees =
    Dealer installed options (tint, mudguards, etc) =
    Total price =

    This method will allow ALL of us to get a better view of what the new Civic's are going for. ;)
  • 2013 Civic LX auto with splash guards, wheel locks, door edge guards,
    and wheel well molding 17,817
    License and registration 213
    sales tax 1425

    OTD price 19,535

    Thanks dmessler for following the 'posting protocol"! Not a bad deal. Enjoy your new car. :)
  • @mylt4, I was in a similar situation a few years ago when I bought a new corolla for my older daughter. The lesson learned is that when you buy brand new cars for young drivers, the insurance goes through the roof (mine went from about ~$1000/yr to ~$2500/yr, with the addition of 3rd car for my daughter) and you have to be prepared for some dings and dents at the school. Of course, it is a personal choice but that's been my experience.

    We recently bought a Honda Civic but my wife will use if for a while before passing on to my younger daughter.
    The lease price you got offered sounds about the same as what they are advertizing here in Texas. However, on this forum I learned that you should STILL negotiate the price of the car as though you are buying it. Lease is nothing but financing the cost of the car +depreciation over the lease period.
  • I'm planning to buy a EX 2013 this month, anyone bought a EX in Bay Area recently? need advises. Thanks
  • Was wondering if anyone had any experience negotiating for 2013 civic si sedan. I would like to finance it and would like to know what is acceptable to pay for this car.

    There is no "posting protocol" here in these would be very helpful to all have the same info but not a must. Every few years folks come in here and try to tell the others how to post...folks, it don't work. Us old timers have learned that people are going to post as they see fit and no need for ridiculous rules!

    At my job I get to test drive all kinds of new cars and hopefully will finally get to try the new Civic but there aren't very many Honda's in fleet sales. I still love my '06 model but I just hope that the new Civic can beat the new benchmark in this segment, the Hyundai Elantra...a very stellar car in every aspect and in it's 3 different models.

  • Hi Sandman,

    Was looking into purchasing the 2013 Civic EX sedan, when negotiating I want to be within TMV price correct? Also will I be able to negotiate taxes so I can get a fair OTD price? What is a good OTD price for South Florida? Thanks in advance!! ;)
