    thanx lakerskobe for the reply.

    Going back over the last two months of posts it seems that March was good for a purchase and HF's So.Cal. interest rates and OTD's are going to be hard to beat in the NE in April.

    You saved me a bunch of time chasing a few hundred $ numbers alltold paid out over 60 months. Much appreciated.

    Look in the Accord & CRV forums... without a template type of post the predominant number of these OTD Civic posts are not useful for us all here.

    We need numbers in a logical manner.........
  • Can anyone please let me know the OTD prices at northern virginia/MD/DC area?
  • nrborodnrborod Posts: 79
    That price doesn't seem right--way low
  • Yeah, tell me how I got "hosed" when the bottom line, OTD price of the vehicle was low to the point that NO OTHER DEALER in the metro ATL area would even touch it. No one, out of over 14 dealers that I worked, was in the least bit interested in trying to beat the OTD price of $18,978. None.

    So, when you have the absolute, rock-bottom OTD price that no other dealer shows any interest in trying to beat, regardless of the doc fee, how is that "getting hosed"?

    Negotiable? Sure, if I was the dealer, who knows he gave me a damn good OTD price, I would say, "bring me someone else's mail quote to you that is lower than $18,978, and I will adjust my price."

    Maybe some folks would just sleep better at night paying a higher OTD price with a low doc fee, huh? That way, they can rest easy knowing they didn't get "hosed".......

    16999 plus 699 Dealer Doc Fees = 17698 sale price.

    Decent price and you did NOT get "hosed"... additionally, poster [u]lakerskobe[/u] failed to designate whether it was a Garden or Firemen's ;)

    Those reading the forums have read of lower prices over these last several months - I think I remember 17k as bottom - but MY direct request to support u]lakerskobe's[/u] 17k claim was met with their obtuse response as can be read here at message #10477

    Yours is a solid price... ignore any "trolling" from low-post "members" and BS numbers... and enjoy the car! :)
  • Anyone dumb enough to pay $699 doc fee (pure profit for dealer) got royally hosed.

    I paid $17k + $80 doc fee. I used Truecar and no other dealers would go lower than $17.8k.

    Instead of WHOLLY insupportive commentary for those perusing the forum, there are PLENTY of FREE sites to which you can upload a direct/cropped scan or a smart-phone cropped pic of the buyer's order to support your claim.

    Congrats on seller's $80 doc cap (State based?) for the buyer, and be thankful you don't live in Illinois and wanted to do a lease :(

    Down here we have the $699 dealer fees which are stupid but just part of the cost of doing business. I always go for an OTD price and let them fill in the numbers any way they want to and this way seems to work...just lower the price of the vehicle by the doc fee and all is good. I just have to get my bottom line price and I am good. If no one accepts, I need to reconfigure my numbers somehow but eventually I will get the vehicle at the price I am comfortable with. The key I've found is not to absolutely need or fall in love with the particular doing this, I can walk out if I don't get my price. And also not absolutely needing it makes this so much easier!

    I had a similar reaction the first time I saw a doc fee that high. However, I soon found the explanation: Doc fees are substantially different in different parts of the country.

    Sandman offers sound advice: Shoot for the bottom line and let the dealer arrange the numbers however they wish.

    If a buyer is happy with the deal they got, telling them they shouldn't be seems pointless.
  • Really dumb to pay that much, especially when it's negotiable.

    I am trying to get a good deal on a 2013 EX. The only OTD quote that I got was a 21,650 and a 19,535 base price without any of other fees unless I show up in person. Does anyone have some numbers that they can share. One salesman asked me what I thought was 'fair'? This is in Dallas Ft worth, Texas area.
  • civictorycivictory Posts: 73
    I've purchased both a Civic and a Pilot in the past few years in DFW. Both times, Rusty Wallis had the lowest quote. We purchased the Civic there. On the Pilot, we got a dealer closer to us (Huggins) to price match.

    As you probably know, you've got quite a few Honda dealerships to choose from in the metroplex. I'd contact them all!

    I have contacted about six of them and three OTD prices are in the 21,650 range and 21,500 and two that are about 19,535 want me to come in....
  • civictorycivictory Posts: 73
    This is just my personal preference, but I did all my negotiating via email. The dealerships that wouldn't give me a quote via email and/or insisted that I come in got scratched off the list. That was really my previous point... With so many Honda dealers in the DFW area, you can be picky about who you deal with and on what terms.

    I am considering a lease on a 2013 Civic 4 Door EX-L( no NAV), 36 months, 15K per year, taxes and tags up front ONLY--wondering what a reasonable monthly payment might look like at this point from peoples' experience?
  • 858smith858smith Posts: 2
    the cheapest i've found in the area i'm at (central mississippi) is $18,500, including taxes, fees, etc.

    i called 6 other dealerships & i was quoted over $19,100 each. i'm going to the dealership on monday to finalize everything & hopefully get my new wheels! :)
  • bliz1bliz1 Posts: 5
    Is this a good price for this spring sale... Msrp 21605 prices quoted 19535 and 19700 but both are not incl taxes fees etc and add in 599 dealer fee which is common in fl even though no one wants to pay it
  • bliz1bliz1 Posts: 5
    in central fl if you have a costco card you can get 19535 however then they add a propack bring th e price back up to 20730 before fees. Also for an automatic there are not many on the lot so difficult to deal with unless they have what you want.

    I got my new 2013 Honda Civic LX Automatic here in MD yesterday. The OTD price (including fees, taxes and processing fee) was $17700 including mud guards, pinstripes and nitrogen filled tires.

    I also got the 1.9% financing for 60 months.

    I got my Honda Civic LX automatic in VA on 4/29/2013. The OTD price is $18202 and we paid by cash.
  • scavettascavetta Posts: 1
    How are you guys getting a ‘13 Civic LX auto OTD for $17,700-$18,200? I’ve talked to 14 dealers in west central FL and the lowest OTD I’ve been offered w\o financing is $19,100. I want to buy a LX for about $18,500 or EX for $20,500 but no one wants to play…. If you’re willing to share your dealer quote sheets please send to jscavetta– Thanks!

    Sounds too good to be true? Probably isn't.
  • cdfno1cdfno1 Posts: 3
    Which dealership did you go to for the deal in MD? Thanks.
  • birdyspikebirdyspike Posts: 3
    It is Jim Coleman Honda.
