Congratulations on your 2012 Civic... I completely understand your concern regarding having to pay MSRP - Regrettably I did the same thing in late 2007 when I purchased a brand new 2008 Accord EX coupe just as it became available, and, at the time I didn't care about having to pay sticker price.
Having just purchased a 2011 Accord EX-L V6 navi coupe, I received more than 4600.00 off, 0.9 financing for 60 months, plus 750.00 in Honda loyalty money which paid my first payment.
While I prefer getting a bunch of money off, in the future if there is something I really want and I am not able or willing to wait, I wouldn't hesitate to complete the purchase regardless of the discount (or lack there of) I receive.
I am sure your 2012 Civic will provide many years of trouble free service and stellar fuel economy.

Thanks. The 2012 EX is replacing a 2002 Civic LX with 193K miles that I passed down to my son, so I am expecting the new one to last a long time.

I was in my old store yesterday and I learned that the situation in Japan has severly limited inventorys.
I wouldn't look for any deep discounts on cars they can't even get.
Not just Civics either.

Hi embeedee, did you get 16,700 from Criswell Honda, MD? They gave me a quote for $18,294 + $100 processing + T/T. Please advise how you get yours. Thanks!

I have a quote for $20,500 OTD. Is that a good price? Or do you think I can do better? The location is Southern AZ.

Yes, I got $16,700 OTD along with 0.9% financing but that was on March 31. I recently inquired about the same car for my sister and was given a quote more than $2000 higher now.
Literally, I drove 4 hours to make the deal that night as the person with whom I was dealing told me that incentives were changing on April 1. I thought he might be bluffing, but he was not. With the quake and high demand, things have deteriorated rapidly for us buyers - not just from Honda but it seems from all of them - even Kia and Hyundai who were not directly affected by the quake.
Unfortunately, I now have to replace another car but will be limping along until the fall or later.

Thanks for the response embeedee. Were you able to quote for $18,700 for your sister's car at Criswell? I'm trying to negotiate with different dealers in NJ and it seems impossible for them to get down to less than $19,000 at this point.

The unofficial quote they gave me for a potential car for my sister was $17.2K before destination fees. I think destination fees are about $700 now, so that takes it to $17.9. With TTL, you are probably looking at a bit more than $19K at this point, probably similar to what you are being quoted.
I think Criswell was a high volume dealer that may have gotten more dealer cash than some other dealers and they were willing to pass that on. - that's purely speculation but it seemed to make sense to me. With everything going on now in Japan, they are probably no longer getting that dealer cash.
What is aggravating is that many other manufacturers, even those not directly impacted by the quake and tsunami, are falling in line and cranking up prices.

I just had a few questions regarding your post. If they are still building 2011's, how do I search for a specific model? I want a manual transmission LX-S. So far, I have been searching on Cars.com and the manual LXS is very very limited (I got 6 cars total when I searched the whole database).
Second, are you saying that is is good to buy a 2011 LX during/after memorial day?

WOW that's an amazing deal you got. I am in the same boat, and am looking for a 2011 LXS. There are two in the entire San Francisco Bay area that match by criteria (color, transmission). What do you recommend? Or, how did you approach the situation? The reason I am asking is because the LXS models themselves are limited. And where did you find this model? Lastly what was your total, OTD out of the door price with everything?
