    Thanks. Yeah, Pohanka was awesome, def one of the most straight-forward & hassle-free dealers around
    I think you're right. I really only cared about the otd and didn't notice how they calc the tax.

    I have an 09 EX-L 2 dr. coupe and my trunk lid is bare metal, was a little upset that it didn`t have a liner, so being as mine is without, it goes without saying about the LX or the LX-S

    Can anyone give me pricing for NJ.
  • Just out of curiosity, I assume that was without tax, title, tag and processing fee, still I think that is a good price for an EX.
    Also, did the corolla have all the features that a CIvic EX has ? otherwise you are comparing like products, even if it did, I think the Civic is a much more preferred, that is just my opinion.
  • scf - you reported "$18,000 OTD for a 2009 Civic EX (4dr, auto) no accessories.... "
    what's the sales tax in your state (since that, unfortunately, is not negotiable...)?
  • Anyone recently purchase Civics in SD? I'm getting 18K OTD for a LX and that seems a bit high compared to the prices other people are getting.

    Thanks for your email. Trying to get that price hopefully i can do it too. :D

    Thanks to everyone on this forum for posting your tips and prices paid.Using them I've been able to negotiate (via email, over the phone, and in person over some lunch hours), a Civic EX-L Auto w/o nav down to 19,000 - including destination (with TTL - I expect the OTD price to be ~20,900 with NY taxes, dmv fees, etc).

    I could probably do a few hundred better - but considering thats a 1000 less than I could've gotten just 6 months ago, I'm very happy.

    I stop by Thursday to seal the deal (who knows, maybe I can get the price down a 100 or 200 between now and then?).

    Hello everyone,

    Recently got a quote on 2009 Honda civic LX sedan (no accessories). Is $16480 OTD a good deal? I'm living in Illinois. I'm also a little concerned about the stability control which is not on LX model, is it a must to have? Thanks!
  • Tell them that you have some ties in Sacramento (born & raised in Sacramento, brother or sister lives in Sacramento, or brother-in-law / sister-in-law lives there)... any reason to let them know that you are seriously considering going to Sacramento to purchase it. Plane fare is only $100 (?)... Good luck.

    Hello I got a quote for 2010 Toyota Corolla LE, with all weather guard, cruise control, keyless entry, and carpet floor/trunk mats.

    The price is $15,890 plus tax (5%), title, license, and docs fees. Is this a good deal? Thanks!

    dtolman: I believe 16480 OTD is a decent deal. Not sure what the tax rate is in IL. I agree that stability control should be at least an option on all models. I believe they have started to include it with Toyota Corollas. I honestly had not noticed it was not standard on LX up. That may seriously affect my buying decision. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration mandates that all cars have it standard by 2012, so I do believe it's an increasingly important feature.

    Readbook: I think you're in the wrong forum. This is for Honda Civics.

    You can find some good deals on used cars on There's a whole automotive section for people selling their cars. I found my 30k mile '04 Honda Civic there last month and got a great deal. I definitely would recommend checking there if you're looking for a used Honda or any used car.
  • dlrskidlrski Posts: 3
    I was really looking for a pre- owned civic ex, but was contacted with an "internet sale price" of $18,807 (pre Indiana 7% tax and $150 doc fee, no trade in) for an '09 EX-L.

    What do you think, do I have room to negociate?? Have yet to go to this particular dealership in person.
    I truly hate the car buying process and keep my vehicles forever . Any resonse appreciated!

    Urban Titanium most sought after color? Can youi explain this assertion? I happen to like it the most and have it but want to know more about how you've come to say the above.

  • jhusfjhusf Posts: 3
    I am living in San francisco and looking for a honda Civic LX sedan. You got a really sweet deal. Would you mind to also forward me the quote email? I emailed the honda dealers around, and never got such good price. Thank you very much. my email address is [email protected]
  • dtolmandtolman Posts: 3
    If 18,807 is with destination included, and no hidden fees, its a better price than I've managed to get in NY.
  • abchin486abchin486 Posts: 78
    yes. before tax title blah blah

    Yes, she got a corolla S with sunroof for 14.8K after college rebate (before all the other tax title blah blah).

    It is a really good price for an EX...but she liked the corolla better. Oh's her car, not mine.
  • Hi jhusf,
    Just emailed you the quote I got from Autowest Honda Roseville. Good luck.
  • dlrskidlrski Posts: 3
    Thanks, drove to dealership this evening and drove the EX-L. Really would like the leather but wonder if the stability control and heated seats are worth the extra $1500.

    any opinions on the true value of the addition. By the way, fun sporty drive coming out of a V-6 SUV

    Is there anyone here from Arizona? I would like to know what a good deal on a Civic LX-S would be OTD.
  • jhusfjhusf Posts: 3
    Hi, Sacramento2:
    I got it, Hopefully I can also get the same price. Thank you very much.
  • scfscf Posts: 3
    I have (had?) the same concern....drove both the EX and EX-L but am pretty sure the extra cash isn't worth it.

    The leather is nice, but definitely not top quality. VSA, from what I'm told, is worthwhile, but with the limited HP and FWD its not as useful as with other vehicles....

    I'm -not- an expert so I'm just going with what I'm told (by a pretty trustworthy source) and plan to save the extra $1400...
  • Hey guys,

    Vehicle Features

    EX (A5)
    1.8L Inline4

    Exterior Color

    Alabaster Silver Metallic

    Interior Color

    Beige w/Cloth Seat Trim


    Destination Charge

    Internet Price*

    Can anybody give me an idea if this is good or not?
  • antonio1antonio1 Posts: 25

    Here in orlando you can buy a Hybrid for 600.00 more of your price. I think they can do a better price on it......
  • crazyflycrazyfly Posts: 61
    VSA comes standard on the Accord. Like Civic, great deals are available these days on Accords. I think Vehicle Stability Assist is a must have for safety. If I am dropping 20 grand on a car and then going to see and drive it every day, would sure like for it to have all the current safety features.

    You should be at $17,785 or less based on the prices I received in middle Florida.
  • Thanks.:
    I got another quote from a dealer, but not sure if it includes destination charge.
    Is this a good deal w/out destination charge?
    Sales tax in florida is 6%

    Year Make Model Trim Color MSRP* Discount* Price*
    2009 Honda Civic Sdn EX $20,775.00 $3,275.00 $17,500.00

  • Just purchased a 2009 Honda Civic EX 4DR Sedan. Purchase was made at Coral Springs Honda, Coral Springs, Florida. The bottom line price including all fees and taxes was $18,868. The sales tax is 6% and the car included pin striping, edge guards and moor roof hood. I had an existing tag that was transferred.

    I did not have a tarde-in and I did not finance through the dealer

    I negotiated the price with 5 dealers via email and phone. Once I got to the dealership, the experience was smooth. They did not try to play any games and there were good number of cars to chose from.
