    @tqh2013 said: Hey guys,

    Dealer here in Southern California is trying to sell me an alarm for Civic EX for $700. What is the difference between the "Security System with Remote Entry" and an alarm. I looked up Honda.com and "Security System with Remote Entry" is standard on EX. The Security System and alarm is the same to me. Not what is the difference and if the dealer is pulling my chains. Any help is appreciated.

    If you do not want an aftermarket alarm, do not buy it - tell the dealer to provide you a unit without an alarm or go to a different dealer. Who is the dealer? Knowing what dealer is doing this will help the rest of us SoCal shoppers.

    Thanks, Bill G

    Just bought a Silver '13 LX Coupe, $13998 + freight + tags + 6%MD tax, etc., OTD is $16181. Big improvement over 2012 in plastic quality.

  • I'm looking to lease and like the civic lx 2013, no dealer add-ons. MSRP was 19,755. Initial deal was a special of 2k down and 159/month (excluding ttl, and I think excl destination?). I am new to leasing so a lot of the numbers are confusing to me, but would love some input.

    In the end, they quoted 195 including tax (excluding title, license),

    I have a trade in valued at $500 Would put $500 cash down (though I'd rather not put anything down).
    The money factor was .00011 (I think).
    They discounted the MSRP to 17,600 (something like that); Residual Value: around 11,280.
    It's in las vegas, so the sales tax is 8.1%. the $500 down would cover first month and 197 left is cap cost reduction (I think that's how they got down to 17,600, but honestly I can't remember all of the numbers, so it could be more than 17,600).

    And frankly, I didn't want to put any money down -- I still think they valued my trade too low -- kbb is 1341, edmunds is 1140 (something around there), so I was hoping to get closer to 1000 for it as a trade in and not put any money down. It's a 1997 nissan maxima GLE with 78k miles in ok cosmetic shape, but still runs great and is very low mileage wise -- I just want a nicer car.

    Is this a good deal?

    I'd like to get it down closer to 180 including tax (I'm from LA and just visiting family in Vegas, so I would register it in LA, and tax there is 9%, though I'd be fine with a paying the difference for LA and having it be a bit over 180). They also told me the money factor is .00065 in LA -- this confused me -- why can't I use the money factor where I lease instead of where I register? Is it because the tax is based on where I live/garage the car? Or...?

    Is 165-170 plus ttl doable?

    What is a good lease deal at this point?

    Thanks!

  • gmanusmc,

    The place i visited was Honda cars of Corona. They also tried to sell me a package with wheel lock, mud-guard, trunk tray for $800. I told them thank you and walked out.

    Thanks,

    Good job - don't blame you - those things can be bought for a fraction of that (if you want them, that is)

  • Anyone in Central NJ area that got a good deal on 2013 Civic LX? Appreciate inputs

    What dealership?

  • About the extend warranty for new 2013 civic sedan ex-l, anyone know is it worth to buy it? If so, what is the fair price? Thanks !!

  • $16.1k seems ridiculously low. One VA dealer I called that I know sold for $17k is refusing to give a quote online or via phone. Is demanding an inperson visit for a quote.

    Some of the so called "Prices Paid" numbers in forums such as this one can be a bit...well..." enthusiastic" Be aware of that!

    Just bought a 13 Civic Lx sedan here in the Bay Area, CA.

    18,300 out the door w/ tax, title, licensing, etc.

    Breakdown of the fees include:

    • Purchase Price of car (w/ dest) 16,338
    • DMV: 257
    • Document Fee: 80
    • Tire Tax: 8.75
    • Sales Tax 9%

    Total: 18300 OTD

    This included the dealer-installed options: edge guard film, mud guards, wheel locks, and a aftermarket Karr alarm.

    Financed through Honda at 4.5%. Didn't get lowest rate due to credit. But very happy with price.

    I'm looking for prices paid on 2014 Civic EX and EX-L models. Anyone buy one of these yet around Ohio? I've got a few internet quotes but was wondering how far below invoice they are willing to go this time of year? Thanks.

    Looking for the best price on a 2013 Honda Civic LX in Austin, TX. I got a quote of 19k before ttl, what's the lowest I can go? It looks like people are getting it in the 16k range before ttl.

  • if someone wouldn't mind..i keep reading all these posts, and people keep mentioning trying to get 1000 + dollars off "invoice".

    Is that the Factory Invoice + Destination fee? Or does "invoice" mean MSRP? Sorry, just really confused

    You should be able to do a lot better than that. For the LX, there are a lot of reports on here where people paid around 16k before ttl. I paid 16.3k if you look a few posts back.

    Factory invoice is exactly what it is. Do a search here on edmunds under the new car buying guide. For example, the MSRP for the Civic LX is 19,775 with a factory invoice price of 18,433. There are plenty of folks on here that paid 1-2k off of invoice price before taxes, title, and licensing as those vary by state and county. For example, I paid 16.3k in CA if you look a few posts back.

  • Pretty sure I got ripped off badly lol. I bought a 2013 EX civic for 21k otd. They made me buy wheel locks, splash guards, and some stupid trunk thing for 499...hopefully this civic is reliable so i don't have to buy another new car for at least a decade :(
