#10241 of 10535 2012 Civic LX - San Leandro Honda
May 21, 2012 (4:25 pm)
Sharing some information received on 5/19/2012 from San Leandro Honda. I was looking at the civc lx to compare it with the car I was interested in. Sales rep really wanted me to purchase the civic lx over a fit base.
Cars that came in 2 weeks ago have a dealer cost of $18,127 (2 alabaster silver left); those that came in this week are ~$300 higher. These costs are invoice plus destination.
Costco price = $500 over invoice.
Cash price (no financing) = $18,627. This figure includes destination, but not the doc fee and gov't fees. I didn't ask how they came up with this number.
They have a special $1,000 below dealer cost promotion, if the car is financed. I don't know who actually gets this promotion. I received an email about it from the dealership since I previously purchased a car from them and I'm on their mailing list. When I went there, the sales rep would only give me $875 (2% holdback + $500 dealer cash). After showing the sales rep my email, the sales rep spoke with the boss and was allowed to give me the $1,000 below dealer cost promotion.
Assuming you wanted the $18,127 car, the cost of the car would be $17,127 + $55 doc fee (max in CA by law) + other gov't fees. At 36 months and 0.9% interest, monthly payment is $534.32; at 60 month and 1.9% interest, monthly payment is $331.83. Monthly payment figures includes the doc fee and other gov't fees.
Sales rep also told me that it would be cheaper to finance the car ($17,127 + $271.34 finance charges; sorry - I don't recall term and % interest) than to do a cash purchase ($18,627). Sales rep said I could finance the car to get the lower price, and then pay off the whole amount the next day or two to avoid the finance charges. I've never heard of this.
I purchased a different car from the dealership (fit base). Looking at the sales contact, I found the below:
OPTION: You pay no finance charge if the Amount Financed, Item 7, is paid in ful on or before May 24, 2012 (date was inserted). SELLER's INITIALS: (left blank).
#10242 of 10535 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe

I am looking to purchase a 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe with Honda financing. Can anyone shed some light on what a respectable out-the-door price should be? I'm guessing it is harder to get great prices on the Si since they are few and far between.
