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?

That price is too high for a car with that much milage. If the car was actually built in 2009, then we're talking about 30k miles for a less than two year old car. I wouldn't pay that much.
On the last day of April I paid, 16.8K OTD from Criswell Honda for a new '11 LX sedan. The starting price was 15.5k which was what Zag and Truecar quoted as the starting price. I don't think you should pay more than 12-13k for a car with that much mileage, but that's just me.

12-13K? OTD price? i'm at WA. 9.5% tax rate.
I found someone is selling a salvage titled car called $14.5K, i guess if it is not a salvage titled, he will sell it more, so you mean i can try to offer 12-13K for this better car, it is clean title.
Thank you for the response.
#10044 of 10534 2012 Civic Lx auto price
May 20, 2011 (8:05 pm)
Today I paid $18,800 for a 2012 auto 4d Civic Lx plus California tax. They gave me the best deal by $400 compared to other local dealers that quoted internet prices. Poway Honda near San Diego is a wonderful dealership to work with. This is the second new car that I have bought from their internet sales in the past 5 yrs. I feel that I got a fair deal on my 2007 CRV trade-in.
#10045 of 10534 Any truth to this?
May 22, 2011 (9:19 pm)
LA Times article on what a bad time it is to buy a car right now.
Held off buying a new car for a few years. I'm currently driving a 2002 VW Jetta.
Shopped around for a bit and it was a toss-up between Ford and Honda. Visited two dealerships recently and I'm pretty set on getting 2011 Honda Civic Coupe. The salesman told me due to the earthquake/tsunami that supply had gone done considerably and that they could only take off a small amount of MSRP.
So....MSRP of a Honda Civic Coupe LX is $19k, at best they can lower it to $18.5k it seemed, and OTD of ???? $20-21k?
Anyone else getting the same response from Honda dealers in Socal?

They treated me just like that at Moss Honda in Moreno Valley, saying you are lucky to be paying MSRP on a 2012 Civic LX auto, and your trade is worth only a few hundred bucks, KBB is only a guide he says. DHC Honda in Temecula was more reasonable close to KBB for the trade a couple Hundred of MSRP. Honda sales think it is the energy crisis of 1973 and that the Civic is the only game in town. That really soured me on Hondas and we own a Pilot EXL 4WD. Use to own a 1992 VW GTI 15 years ago and avoided VW's during the unreliable years which consumer reports says lasted up to 2006? I noticed that the newer VW's have much simpler drivetrains now especially the I-5 2.5L. Test drove a 2011 Golf 4 door and decided this would be our second car. I got it at $100 over invoice and 2.9% for 60 months, plus close to KBB for the trade. So we got a shark blue metallic Golf 4 door last week. The Honda Pilot is our last Honda, thanks to their salesmen.

Hopefully the salesperson wasn't rude to you but don't be down on him if he was simply explaining the current supply situation. I can assure you, the salespeople aren't happy either since they have little inventory.
And, KBB isn't gospel. It's true that it is a "guide". Some cars are worth less and some will bring more. You won't get more than a dealer can buy the same car for at a local auction.
There is also a possibility that your trade was a car they didn't want for a number of reasons.
Again, no excuse for a salesperson to be rude and no doubt the current market situations have been very frustrating for both sides!
Good luck with your VW. Hopefully they have a grip on their quality problems. I guess time will tell.
