2013 and earlier-Honda Civic Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • haxorhaxor Posts: 1
    Hi all, I had been following this thread and wanted to share my own experience. Recently bought a 2013 Civic LX sedan (automatic) in the SF bay area:

    (cash deal)
    $17200 base (including dest charge)
    $19041 OTD

    There were several dealers willing to give ~$16800 with financing, using the $500 flex cash.

    Sorry for the late response. $500 off for Honda financing. IT does not include military or college grad or any other discount
  • ninissniniss Posts: 7
    If this is an automatic LX then you've got the lowest price in this entire forum.
  • Isn't there an $800 destination fee in there also?
  • zsumu1zsumu1 Posts: 2
    No all inclusive
  • Which dealership did you get this quote from?

    Dear. xfs

    Could you give me some tips how you got such a good deal?
    My email is [email protected]
    I am on my way home from dealershop after 3 hrs of negotiation.
    The otd was $22,000 range. Msrp was 20,299 for EX

    Please help.
    This is my first time purchasing a car and I need a wise advice.

    Thank you
  • Hi, I was puchase 2013 Civic EX in Chicago, IL. OTD price $20,400. I know my price is not the cheaper. Hope this can help you a little bit.
  • I'm looking to purchase 2013 honda civic coupe si base model. I received a price of 20400 from my local dealer (excluding taxes. They also charge 600 in dealers fees). Does it sound like a good deal.
  • Hi,

    Would you mind telling me which dealer you bought the car from? I am also in Chicago and shopping Honda civic EX maybe EXL.

  • I'd love to find out a fair price for civic exl in Seattle. Can anyone give advice? Thanks!!!
  • Hi guys, gonna buy a car today or tomorrow. Is the 2013 Honda Sedan LX -automatic $19,300 OTD (out-the-door/final) price a good deal?

    Also, let's say if I don't like the color they have, how much more could I possibly negotiate down?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Not knowing where you reside, the OTD is not a good way to measure. The invoice price incl destination for a civic LX automatic is around 18,500. A good price would be around 12-1500 below invoice - then factor in any incentives you may qualify for. Negotiate any dealer doc fees down as much as possible - if they tell you they can't lower their doc fee, see if they will adjust the selling price to compensate.

    Good luck!

  • Southern California is where this deal is being made. So would that be a good OTD offer? $19,300?
  • $17,790 including destination. Tax, license, other fees totaling $19,300. Yes or no?

    Also got another quote for $17,490 but OTD was $19,340 (supposedly).

    All dealers will ask you if you are financing or paying cash, so they can gauge how much more they can possibly make off of you via finance interest charges.

    Also, in regards to financing, I know the type of credit you've own is important as well as many factors for you to get approved for a fantastic interest rate. I have great credit but will be a first -time new car buyer, so I am wondering how likley I would be approved for the lowest finance rate which right now is .9%.
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 694
    If they are factoring in flex cash, 17,490 is a so so deal. That's 500 below invoice plus 500 flex cash. As I said in my first response to you - shoot for 12-1500 below invoice plus any incentives you qualify for (i.e. flex cash would bring you to 17-2000 below invoice). As far as financing, if your credit score is around 700, you should be able to get Honda Finance's best rate.

  • Hi Bill,

    Thanks for your responses.

    I'm not too familiar with flex cash. Does that mean there's a flexible in that $500 amount that dealers either keep for themselves or pass on a little more discount to me, lowering the cost of vehicle purchase?

    Also, for my specific car in interest, a white 2013 Honda Civic LX 4dr sedan -automatic, Edmund is listing the TMW for this particular configuration (quoted from my zip code) to be at $18,445 (w/ destination) but without TTL. Are you saying I should try to get the quote 12-1500 or 17-2000 lower from $18,445 depending on if there's s flex cash or not? But even without flex cash, I go 1200 below $18,445, that is 17245. So is this the actual quote for the vehicle I should aim for?

    If so, let's just pretend that also TTL is another 10%, then my OTD is just right under $19,000. It will be $18,969. Think that is a fair OTD for Southern Cali?
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 694
    Flex cash is a Honda supplied dealer cash - not sure it's still available - the 18,969 OTD in SoCal is a good deal if no flex cash is factored in - that's about 1500 under invoice.

  • Bill,

    Thanks for your reply. If you think the above Otd price was good, what range do you think would be considered great?
  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 694
    If the dealer has flex cash available, an additional 500 off is possible.

    Congrats on the new car - were there any incentives involved? Your stated price is around 2000 below invoice - a very good deal indeed!

    Enjoy the car!
