Just curious about a price for my '06 Honda Civic.
4 Door Sedan
Alloys Off A '05 Civic SI
New Front Pads/Rotors Last Week
New Rubber 1 Year Ago
Vehicle Looks brand New But Rear Bumper Has Some Nicks From Garage Door; Up To Date On Maintenance; New Headliner; Amp In Trunk With Newish Speakers And Tweeters.
A really nice vehicle that should probably not go to a dealer but straight onto Auto trader. I know this is a 7 year old vehicle, almost 8 but the miles are low and I have kept it up nicely and get stopped frequently and asked if it's this years model. Would love to get $11k but know that is foolish. What say the master here as I'd really love something new and FUN!!

That's an automatic, right?
I have nothing to compare it to.
the above average examples with 75k miles are doing $7500-$8k. Those will wind up retailing for damn near $11k, so I don't see why you couldn't do that with yours.

Yep, I don't row my own gears so a slushbox it is. Not that I would sell right now, but for the right figure, I'd do it and either get something a bit older for a couple of years or just get new/cpo. Was online this afternoon looking at what the local Yota dealer has used and he has a lot of nice stuff for under $20k, even a nice 3 Series , a 2010 I think with miles in the low 30's in a light blue color...very sweet! Also had a bunch of Jetta SE's with miles under 20k in the mid to high teens. Like I say, not that I am actively looking but for the right price, I'd cut the Civic from the herd in a heartbeat. I've done the Honda thing now and I'm done with them...great reliability though and I know it'll always turn over when I start her up, but to be honest, I do not wait until the battery is near dead, by year # 3, I am usually throwing another one under the hood as I do not want the hassle of having to call roadside. And to be honest, the South Florida heat usually eats batteries every 3 to 4 years anyways so I just do it a little before it needs to be done but I like preventative maintenance done as I just sleep better this way. Foolish, maybe yes, maybe no but hey, it's my dough and we do not live an extravagant life by any stretch here...we live below our means and owe no one anything. Would love to leave the kids something eventually but if not, such is life and they all know this up front.

My sister traded in a 2002 Civic LX 4 door with even less miles about 6 months ago and she got 6000 I think.

While trying to decide how much more use I want to get out of the warranty on my current vehicle, I spent some time wandering the lots in my small town. Being in rural South Georgia, once I got past all the trucks and SUVs, I found a few things of interest, primarily this:
2010 Acura TL
3.5 V6, 5AT, FWD
NOT the SH-AWD
NO Tech pack
champagne over beige leather
I think everything else is standard:
dual auto climate, heated front seats, slider
Carfax shows a one owner out of suburban Philadelphia, by way of the Honda sale at FAAO.
Overall in above average shape. The bumpers show a little evidence of life on the streets of Philadelphia, but otherwise nothing a visit to the detail shop won't fix.
The dealer is 75 days into this, having bought it at the end of July, so they are getting motivated to move it along.
Asking price is $23,185, which seems to be in line with the others on offer in Jacksonville, FL.
This is at THE Honda dealer in Brunswick, Georgia, 60 miles north of Jacksonville.

hmmm... well, there was one in PA that is similar to this that sold 3 weeks ago for $18,800; however, there is another with the same miles and color that sold 2 weeks ago in Orlando for $20,400.
Looking across the numbers, it looks like the average is around $20k.
So their price is reasonable enough. Any extra off is just bonus.

wow. I have nothing to compare it to with those miles.
Best ballpark guess is $14k.
That's a 3.5 liter, BTW.

Thanks for the help.
The Carfax shows it "offered for sale" at the same dealer that has it on 8/27/13, but doesn't show where they got it from. My guess would be Orlando, because this dealer is part of the big group based in Atlanta (that starts with an S, and the family sold their namesake dealers except this one to Asbury), and since they're based down here, PA is a long way to go for an auction.
VIN ends in 024305 if that's any help.
I'm glad they're reasonable on their numbers, unlike the Hyundai dealer that quoted me $8,000 OVER their website price on a non-CPO Genesis. Needless to say, I won't be going back.

well, who knows? They could have gotten it on trade or from another dealer. I do wonder what the percentage of vehicles is that actually go through manheim. Would be a good number to know.
Good luck with your purchase.
