Wish I could help you but I work at a vehicle transporter company where we move rental cars throughout the state and my Civic is an '06 model with just over 37k on the clock...I will not be in the market for a long time. Just had the headliner repaired at the house this afternoon. Love my car and take excellent care of it.
I'd think that under the tmv price would be doable as even though the new Civic looks great, the Elantra and Focus are both better cars overall. The Civic just didn't evolve far enough.

Were you replying to my post regarding negoating taxes about $1300 I may be getting 2013 Civic EX for $200 over invoice (Good deal??) Do I have power to negotiate taxes or should I request acessories to offset taxes? Thanks in advance!

Thought I'd jump in on the taxes issue, in part because I'm a little confused what you're asking. Taxes are determined by the state, not the dealer. Therefore, I doubt you'd get anywhere "negotiating" that figure.
What is negotiable: base price of car, dealer accessories, doc fees.
I suggest negotiating in that order. Tell them you're not interested in accessories and negotiate the price of the car as low as you can (preferably with more than one dealer). If you feel like you're getting a good deal at that point, go for it. If not, ask them to throw in some accessories and/or reduce or waive the dealer doc fees.
There are certainly other methods, but this has worked well for me in the past. Good luck!

Drove a brand new Kia Soul, a 2012 Kia Rio and a 2013 Sentra at the auto mall today and was blown away by the Sentra...it's as good or better than the benchmark Elantra, it's simply outstanding! Poised road manners and drives like a much bigger, expensive vehicle, it has all the goodness of the Altima but in a smaller, more refined package! Totally outstanding job Nissan...y'all knocked it out of the park here guys!!! I liked it so much I was very tempted to trade my perfectly good '06 Civic LX with only 37k on the clock! This car is that good folks, that good! It's as good or better than the benchmark of the compact class, the Elantra. This car is good folks, really really good!

Just picked up a new 2013 Civic LX Sedan for $18,975 out the door here in Atlanta Georgia, all taxes and fees included. I worked it pretty hard and think I did OK negotiating this all cash deal, but would like to hear anyone else's opinion. Did I do OK or did I get taken for a ride here?

Dang I'm good. Only two bucks off.
Got a really low price on car, negated a bit by high doc.fee. Still $17,698 for car is pretty good. Congrats.

Name of Dealer please! The EX price sounds too good! I will double check for you to determine if your price was a "come on." Where in NJ?
