Not a problem. We have several local Honda Dealers - Voss, Hidy, Castrucci, White Allen. I actually got the best price initially from a dealer south of Dayton - Joe Morgan Honda. The other dealers were all too happy to match. I also had them throw in 3 free oil changes and 3 tire rotations. As long as you are prepared to buy or walk, my recommendation would be to go in to a dealer near you and save your gas money. Just tell them you are willing to pay 16,500 for the car and go from there...also, I dealt directly with the sales manager - I found his name out before going into the dealer and bypassed the salesman. I showed them my price quote from my phone and we went from there. He initially told me to buy it elsewhere and I said "okay, thanks" and began to walk. I was stopped and asked if I would be buying today. I said yes. He told me he would be losing money on paper, but would be making it up on the other end if they hit their sales goal. I asked for free oil changes and to throw in mudguards at invoice....he agreed. Then I applied and was approved for 0.9% financing through Honda for 60 months. I really didn't haggle at all. My advice: deal with the sales manager directly, tell him/her what your price is, ask for freee service, and be prepared to walk away if you are not satisfied. I didn't really do anything special and the whole process took about 2 hours of my time. Good luck and I hope this helps.

thanks for the response broken_tine, i am looking at used cars only and don't want to invest in new car at this time (maybe selling in 1 or 2 years to get new car) I see above posts people are getting 2012 model at $18,000 + tax which is really good deal..
please let me know what you think of price of $16k total (incl sales tax) for 2010 model and 30k miles.. is it good, bad or in the range ?

Sure, here is the breakdown of the $ 23,995 for the Honda Civic EX-L w/ Navi and LoJack:
(Descriptions come directly from the Invoice):
Price of car: $ 22K
Sales Tax in NY (8.625): $1,897.50
License/Title(Doc Fee?): $ 75.00
State Inspection: $10
Tire Fee: $ 12.50
Total = $ 23,995.00
I ended up getting new plates, which cost an additional $ 178.50 so the total price on the invoice came to $ 24,173.50. Originally, I was going to transfer the plates from my old Civic to this one but I had to sell my old Civic quick so I added the new plates a few hours before I signed the financing paperwork (which happened a day after I posted my first message).
I brought a cashiers check for $ 13,995.00 and financed the remainder ($ 9,178.00) at 0.9% APR which I plan to pay off in full in about 6 months. My monthly payment is less than $ 260/month so the only reason I want to pay it off is just to clear off my debt.
