  • Everyone here seems to be using OTD price. Is leasing never an good option? If you get a good OTD price, how do you convert that into a good leasing deal?

    Now that some dealerships have 2014 Civics, how much discount should I expect with a 2013? The best I've seen OTD reported here was ~$17.1k-$17.3k. The best OTD for the dealerships around in W PA @6% tax is $18.3k-$18.5k. $18k is already below invoice, so how did people get that much below?

    Hello,

    I got a quote for $18478 OTD price for the 2014 Honda Civic LX Sedan Automatic. I am purchasing it from Orange County. Is this a good price? I also have a quote of $18395 OTD for the 2013 Honda Civic LX Sedan Automatic. I would greatly appreciate your insights!

    Looking at 2014 Civic EX sedan in Ohio. Best price currently is $20,335 + TTL. What should be my target price for this? Are they selling these below invoice yet? I'm also considering a '13 Accord Sport that I can get for close to that I think. What do you guys think?

    UPDATE: just got a true car price for '14 civic EX at $19,335. Or can get '13 accord sport with 13,000 miles for $19,831? I like features on both but what would you consider a better deal?

    Just the way we've always gone at my house... we prefer new over used. It's not that the used car is going to have guaranteed problems, but there can be issues you have to consider. The only used car we purchased in the last 30 years had about 12K on it - and we wound up driving it to about 230,000 miles - but being a manual transmission that had original been owned by someone in CT where they were doing a lot more stop and go driving, the clutch was a bit more used up than it would have been if we had owned the car from mile one. If we had kept the car for another 20-30K it was probably going to be an issue

    Bought 2013 Civic LX for $16500 (OTD) in northern VA yesterday. There was an incentive of $500 for recent college grad. Hope it is good deal. This forum helped a lot on a target price.

    Yesterday I was offered a price of $20,050 OTD for a 2013 Civic EX with these dealer options priced about $2000: mud splash guards, door edge film, wheel locks, moonroof cover, dealer car care package. The car has 16" alloy wheels. The starting invoice was about $21,560 and the bottom line listed price was about $23500. They were also charging $499 for doc fee. The last OTD number quoted was $20,050 plus $750 in sales tax. Is this a good deal?? Thanks

    We are buying a 2014 Civic EX-L with Navigation. It seems to be a bit rare at the moment (Jan 22) here in OC, CA. The color combo we want is not available anywhere in SoCal. We're going to wait a few weeks to see if inventory goes up. We would be happy with $24K OTD, however, per vmsi's post above, 2013 @ $22K OTD might make us more ambitious.

    Dottie, you should definatelly get the dealer down to $22k otd, good luck!

  • dottieedottiee Posts: 7

    $22k would take lots of luck. Do you really think that's possible?

    Dealers seem to be playing hardball at moment. Probably because of low EX-L w/Nav inventory. Either the Nav trim cars are rolling out late or Honda thinks less than 1 in 100 Civic Sedan buyers want Nav.

    Nationwide Inventory

    2014 Civic Sedan (17,000)

    2014 Civic LX (13,449)

    2014 Civic EX-L w/Nav (145)

    Our trim/color combo (8)! Up from (3) last week.

    Offered an internet rep $23.5k OTD for a 2014 Civic EX-L w/Nav. Denied, no counter offer.

    I'm also having doubts about the negotiating powers given to internet reps. I'm guessing they are limited and a better deal can be had in person. I'm sure internet reps are dealing with lots of low-ball offers.

    We'll wait until March...

    Can you provide a breakdown of the $19K? Selling price, taxes, fees, location. This will help others in their negotiations.

    Sounds like a good deal. That would make your sale price under $17k. Did you get one?

    Hello everyone, new user here with a couple questions regarding a 2014 Civic Sedan EX-L w/out navigation. I'm in southern California and was wondering what price I should be shooting for on this particular model? Is it common to negotiate a car price with an internet sales manager in terms of OTD price or base price minus fees? ANY experience, tips, help, anecdotes MUCH appreciated.

    @camjr, I'm new at this, but I'm thinking that if you do not negotiate an out the door price, the dealer can surprise you with all kinds of fees at the last minute. I would take $1k off the invoice price and run it through the Vehicle Registration Fee Calculator at dmv.ca.gov. I'm thinking $23k OTD would be a good deal for an EX-L. So, maybe shoot for $22k OTD for a great deal.
