    @bmqtx said: Hi, I am in the Dallas, TX area and have been offered $17,000+TTL for a 2014 Civic LX CVT by a local DFW Metroplex dealer. Could someone please tell me if that is a good price? Or is there still some room for negotiation? Thank you very much for your help.

    BMQ, I think that is a good price. Here's my out-the-door experience on 7/18/2014 in Massachusetts for a 2014 Civic LX with automatic transmission (CVT), and no options or add-ons (all prices include Destination charge):

    MSRP: 19,980

    Edmunds Price Promise: 17,566 (best of 4 requested)

    Internet Sales Price after EPP request: 16,947 (includes $500 Honda cash back)

    MA safety inspection: 35.00

    MA new registration: 57.50

    MA title fee: 75.00

    MA sales tax (6.25%): 1082.25

    Dealership doc fee: 369.00 (pretty high I know)

    Dealership single interest insurance: 35.00

    Total OTD: 18,600.75

    I put $1000 down and financed everything else at 2.49% (which beat my private financing) for 48 months.

    I think I did okay. I might have been able to do a little better, as I was probably on the cusp of Honda Summer Clearance with 0.9% financing or $1000 cash back, but I'm not certain of that.

    Hi Everyone,

    I recently moved to US and this is my first car here. I live in Sunnyvale, CA. I have decided to buy 2014 Civic EX sedan and have started asking price quotes since yesterday from various dealers nearby. Edmunds has been very helpful with all the information about buying experiences and in preparation for a good bargain.

    I still could not find latest invoice price which I should take as the baseline and wanted to know how much would be the best deal OTD or base price.

    Can anyone who has recently purchased 2014 Civic EX sedan share what is the final OTD price you have paid?

    Thanks!

    Go to the top of any Edmunds page, select the make/model/year of the new car you are interested in, then choose: Build and Price. The 2014 Civic invoice prices are all there.

    Hi. I'm looking for a 2014 Civic EX-L with Nav in NY, preferably on Long Island…but I will travel a bit if needed. Can anyone share recent experience with pricing? Also, someone posted that there is a $500 incentive. I can only find the incentive noted for college grads and military. Is anyone aware of this incentive for others…or an incentive for repeat Honda buyers? One last thing…where can I find the information on the withhold/holdback percentage on the Civic so that I can calculate that as well. Thanks!!

    Hello folks looking for some help here, I just got of the phone from one of the biggest dealership here in SoCal and received the following out the door prices in email by the internet sales manager. I originally called 5 local dealers but have been going back and forth with 2 dealers so this is what I got so far.

    2014 civic sedan ex. $21272

    2014 civic sedan exl no navi $22900

    As a condition of this quote I would be paying cash or bring in my own financing (which is what I'm planning to do)

    I reside in Los Angeles county so my tax rate is 9% I'd appreciate any input on the matter along with advice on what I should do next and if this is considered a decent deal.

    Thank you

    What is the lowest out-the-door price you have ever seen to get a new Honda Civic with standard features at the end of July, August, September, October or November?

    Was your Civic LX a manual or automatic?

    OK-thought we got a "great" deal from Buena Park Honda, in Orange County CA and now - not so sure. Envious of person who bought from Airport Marina in L.A. who seems to have gotten a MUCH better deal and that was 2 months ago and MUCH closer to our home than BP dealer. Went with BP because lowest price from a local dealer near our home was 19320.12 OTD for a new 2014 Civic LX automatic with "Secure Etch" that they did not have in stock in the colors we wanted (didn't check out Airport Marina Honda thinking it might be pricier since it's located close to LAX.) Agreed to go with BP Honda because internet sales rep offered 19k OTD for LX we wanted in stock, without options. Originally lowest internet offers received were 17014-17392 initial purchase price from 3 dealers spanning 2 counties (40 mile radius). Presenting the lowest internet prices to 4 other higher competitors via email DID NOT get them to meet these offers. Ultimately the new 2014 Civic LX automatic we purchased on Sun 7/27/14 was 19539.41 OTD with security options and breaks down like this (DID WE GET A GOOD, GREAT, OR JUST OK DEAL?) NOTE: We tried to use a credit union based auto buying service we used 7 years ago (Autoland) and were told that we "could not" get the car for less than 18k initial purchase price which is why we felt we got a "great" deal. Were we wrong?

    1. 16914.27 = Base/Initial Purchase Price
    2. ***80.00 = Doc Fee (taxable/CA max allowed)
    3. OPTIONS:
    4. ***99.00 = "Phantom Footprints" (taxable): security id tags that if removed/damaged leave an imprint/etch on the vehicle that is read by UV light. 6 tags located on major access points of the vehicle - physically verified location of tags on vehicle.
    5. **400.00 = "Karr Security System" (taxable): purchased because we have never owned a Honda and have heard "horror stories" about how often they are stolen. It will be parked on public streets (no private/garage parking.) Program offers "complete" reimbursement when combined with vehicle insurance comprehensive reimbursement if a new replacement car has to be acquired (max 20k payout). It is supposed to differ from the factory security system in that it has sensors that set the alarm off if something touches the car and activates dealer installed tracking if stolen. It wasn't really clear what features are standard on the factory security system but we're thinking we really just paid for the added insurance for 36 months that covers the cost of a replacement car. Supposedly we saved nearly 50% on this product for being USAA members (over 1000 MSRP, got it for 547.91 with tax.)
    6. **200.00 = "Karr Security System 2" (taxable): another component of the added security system (above) that reimburses the insurance comprehensive deductible that has to paid (max 2k payout.) In a nutshell the xtra 699 of protection helps to fully reimburse all costs associated with replacing this car with a new model if the car is a total loss due to theft. We didn't actually pay for this item, it was deducted from the original selling price of the vehicle ?17114.27 (16914.27 + 200) because "supposedly" the finance guy made a mistake when he told us to write the check amount for the added security options (forgot to add this feature.)
    7. *1592.39 = TAX ON ITEMS ABOVE AT 9% Los Angeles County
    8. ***29.00 = Electronic Vehicle Registration or Transfer Charge
    9. 19314.66 = "cash price" per contract
    10. CA STATE FEES:
    11. **115.00 = estimated license fees
    12. *101.00 = Registration/Transfer/Titling Fees
    13. ***8.75 = State Tire Fee
    14. $19,539.41 OTD price
    15. 4539.41 down payment; 15k financed with CU at .74% (<1%) with auto deduction from acct
    16. total interest to be paid on 15k financed is less than 200 for 3 years (36 mth loan term)
  • brianw16brianw16 Posts: 2

    crv123, the $500 (or $1000) is an either/or with Honda financing (0.9% or 1.9% depending on when). Edmunds has a calculator that can tell you which saves you more money. Since I got 2.49% financing, only 0.5% above Honda's at the time, the $500 "cash" was the better deal to take.

    I posted my OTD price on a 2014 Civic EX a page or two back. With $500 cash from Honda towards my down payment and financing the rest. My OTD was exactly $21,006.

    PS. I bought my EX from Anderson Honda in Palo Alto, CA. I chose this dealership after emailing a couple of dealers in the bay area for OTD quotes. Anderson Honda came back with an OTD quote of $21k.

    Hope this helps!

    The car is a 4 door sedan, no added accessories. I bought it at autonation honda in Fremont. Very smooth transaction. Please post once you make a purchase to help out other buyers. Good luck!

    I recommend looking at the same forum for Honda Accord. The forum is much more active and has a lot of good tips to buy a Honda, Brian, in particular, is very knowledgable. In general, you should be able to get $1500-$2000 below invoice before incentives. If honda offers a $500 cash incentive, then you should be able to get $2000-$2500 below invoice. Same applies to college, military etc incentive. In addition to that, you should consider doc fees that are different for every state. Since doc fees go straight to the dealer pocket, doc fees should also discounted in your target price. End of the month is always a better time to buy a car.

    Received 3 internet quotes in Massachusetts: 2014 Civic EX automatic 1. 18980 base + destination 2. 18721 base + destination 3. 19104 base + destination

    Good start I think

    @rvajw said: I signed the paperwork so I hope this is a good deal. 2014 Honda Civic EX-L 4 dr sedan. I got out the door for $21,350. I did take advantage of the current $500 from Honda in lieu of 0.9% because I got similar rate outside Honda so I would not have saved more. Breakdown: 20032.90 Base 399 Processing Fee (I realize this is higher than other places) Rest was tax, title, and license.

    One recommendation is if you are shopping, always always always get an internet quote from several places first! This takes a lot of the back and forth and make it easy to leverage dealers.

    Thoughts?

    Where did you get this deal from? I'm looking for a Civic EX sedan and got quoted $20,977 for OTD, but if I can get an EX-L for just a bit more it's worth it. Can you please let me know which dealership offered it so I can see if I can get similar deal? Thanks

  • fun2badultfun2badult Posts: 3

    I'm trying to buy 2014 Civic EX Sedan and got quoted $20,977 for OTD. I also got quoted $18,811 for Civic LX Sedan. rvajw got a Civic EXL for $21,350 OTD so I'm going to see if I can get something like that.

    But the $20,977 for Civic EX Sedan OTD seems reasonable right?

    I got it from a dealership in the Richmond, Virginia metro area. It is Colonial Honda. Here is the website: http://mycolonialhonda.com/

  • fun2badultfun2badult Posts: 3

    Ok. I've been emailing and shopping around SoCal for the best price I can get. I have to say that many dealers are total morons that doesn't know how to negotiate or get back to a customer that's ready to buy. Sometimes it takes a long time to get back from the sales people and it seems like some of these people are not interested in selling.

    Anyhow, I've gotten offer of $18811 for LX, $20977 for EX and $22399 for EXL. Wife wants lower payment so I think we're going to settle for LX although the higher models do look attractive.

    I just offered if the dealership can do $18,000 OTD for LX. Hopefully I can get that price.

    Usedmax could you please tell me which dealership you bought your car from? Would they honor that deal if I paid in cash. And who your sales person was? I would greatly appreciate it!
  • andymbandymb Posts: 8
    So I live in NJ and basically almost all of the dealerships I've visited have been shady: they've given me the come in because they have it in stock then want to tack on an extra $500 cause they have to get it from another lot, or they're either too greedy, or haha the one I absolutely love the most, the bait & switch tactic. I am so fed up that I am deciding. To post these dealerships name's: open road honda (charged too high a price for a base model and it's a freakin summer clearance right now!), nissan of Springfield did not have the juke I wanted and wanted to charge an extra $500 for locating vehicle they didn't have and never got back to me on numerous occasions and never gave me an OTD price-should've known, nissan of denville just never got back to me via email or phone and wanted me to come in. I used a truecar price so the cost of the car price was listed and all I wanted to know was the price to locate the vehicle or whatever and it would pretty much be self explanatory for the OTD price on the juke, just a constant back and forth that I got fed up and blocked their calls, lastly I went to DCH Kay honda in long branch nj in which I thought I got the best deal ever for a 2014 honda civic coupe lx base model for $18719, which was a pretty good deal for me. The sales person, Ray, called and got me insurance and at the end took my card and told me that no one was able to process my card along those lines so via would have to come back on Wednesday when I was available again. Lo and behold after agreeing upon everything, I get the dreaded bait & switch, which my mom told me she knew would happen because they couldn't "process the card". The following day I got a call from Ray saying that my credit along with my bf's credit was not able to go through honda finance. Mind you, my bf's credit is very good and he himself purchased a civic back in 2006 convincing with honda. Apparently they gave me some bs run around story along those lines and that they were not able to get me a good interest rate and that they could not apply the graduate rebate therefore tacking on an extra $500. ....so what happened to the honda summer clearance!? I have not yet bought the honda civic because of these bad experiences from aggressive and furthermore greedy dealerships, and am just very frustrated and upset at these disgusting tactics and greedy dealers. Why not just sell cars at an agreeable price to the dealer and customer, where you can mmajy profit, get incentives from the manufacturer, and become a reputable high volume dealership; it would be a win-win for all. 8/ rolls eyes

    If anyone can help me out on purchasing a 2014 honda civic lx coupe base model and knows a credible and honest dealership and sales person within the areas of NJ, NY, DE, or MD please let me know. I will go out of my way to travel and give my business to that person and refer everyone to that dealership.

    I purchased a brand new 2014 Honda Civic LX Automatic Sedan for $19,8XX out the door from Honda of the Avenues (Jacksonville, Florida) this past week. Paid in full via personal check (though I'd try to settle on a price before discussing financing). This included a new tag, title, tax, default dealer options, doc fee, no additional warranty etc. I believe "base" price on the breakdown was $17,5XX (don't have the papers on me at the moment).

    Another local dealership quoted me $19,5XX OTD, excluding the tag. Showed that to the salesperson I worked with at Avenues when it came time to negotiate (they opened with $21,XXX OTD). They went to $19,500 OTD including the tag. After some time I agreed to that, but then they came back with their manager, who said they couldn't do that and added a few hundred. That manager price increase tactic was my only negative for the dealership. (My advice here is make it clear that you won't budge before they go to their manager for "approval" and then walk away. This was my first car purchase.)

    Message me if you want the first name of the salesperson or the other dealership name if you plan on buying here in Jax (just want to respect privacy and don't remember the last).

    Also know that if you use True Car and say a month later go to a dealer who you sent True Car to and you buy that car the dealer has to pay ~$300 to True Car. Just FYI.

    X's are for not remembering the numbers exactly.

  • andymbandymb Posts: 8
    Thanks, civicdriver4! Wow that's a great deal and for an ex model too! I will definitely be giving them a call. :)
