#10206 of 10741 Bought White Civic EX-L with NAV
Apr 04, 2012 (3:57 am)
Bought White Civic EX-L with NAV on April 2 and picked it up yesterday in Dallas. Price Paid 21905+TTL which included window tint, splash guards, wheel locks, cargo tray, and some protection package for door handles, rear bumper etc. Traded in a 2000 Acura 3.2TL and dealer paid fair price for the trade in based on craig's list postings for similar cars in Dallas. Another competing offer was for approx 21400+TTL without any dealer adds, but the dealer was 30 miles away. Also a warehouse store that has a car service offer was 500 below invoice, again with a dealership about 20 miles away. My dealer is about 5 miles. Also took the Honda financing for 36 months to get the 500 "rebate" on 1st months pmt. Dealer add-ons were about 1700 at full price.
I called the dealer to make sure the car was inside due to hail storms in dallas. Our area got hit very bad. luckily it was in the shop for window tinting when the storms hit.

You can't just pay the payments and drop off the car...
You can solicit offers from dealers on the car.. The advantage is that you won't have to buy the car (and pay sales tax) before then selling it to someone else. The disadvantage is that a dealer won't give you as much as a private buyer..
You might still take a bath, but late model Civics hold their value extremely well.... even if you don't break even, you'll likely be out a lot less than the remaining $6500 in payments on the lease.. There are plenty of Honda dealers in a city the size of Seattle... shop it around, and see what happens.
If the Honda dealers aren't playing ball, try CarMax.

If you recently traded in a gas guzzler for a more fuel-efficient new vehicle, a reporter wants to talk with you. Please email PRedmunds.com no later than Friday, April 13, 2012 with your daytime contact info and the makes and models of the vehicles.

That's very good deal. may I ask how much is sale tax in your area?
Is it a sedan or coupe?
Here's in Bay Area, CA that they have a sale for 16.9K for LX auto sedan+ tax and doc. fee. Almost the same with your OTD.
Could you tell us what's exactly price? tax? doc. fee?
Thanks for sharing.

you got a very good deal on your civic lx. could you please share your experience on how you managed to get this OTD price of $17000 with the dealer? the dealers around my area won't even consider below invoice price. Thank you very much!
