I guess I was confused by your original post - you stated "fair price" and said nothing about out the door. Invoice price for this car is around 18,300 incl destination, so if you are saying you paid 17,290 incl destination, before ttl (I'm still not sure what you paid due to lack of itemized listing), then that's a good price. Others are reporting 1500 below invoice but 1000 below is pretty good too.
Congrats and enjoy your new Civic - they are great looking cars.

I think 19K out the door is still high considering they 2013 model is almost a week old. by now, it should be between $17-18K. I got my 2012 civic lx sedan on april 26th, just a week or two after the 2012 model was introduced. no coupes available yet that time. i was actually planning to get a 2011 model but all dealershipe i went to only have few colors which I didn't like. i got an offer of 17.5K out the door. but was talked into getting the 2012 model for less than $21K otd. i really had to get a new car that time since family was visiting in less than 3 weeks and my old ford focus car was acting up and needed frequent repairs. i could have gotten a bit lower otd had I haggled. but the sales guy was professional and we both understood that there's no need for number games. I got a lower APR because of the Honda graduate program. It would have been 0% APR had I gotten the silver 2011 lx sedan at $17.5k. But since I took the "week-old" model they can't give me 0% APR. i got 5% APR which isn't bad for first-time car buyers. teh car i got was delivered to them on a monday and i drove it home 2 days after.
Some advice when buying new cars:
1. Get online quotes from at least 10 nearest dealers. Ask for OTD. Some will respond, some will just give you the MSRP.
2. Visit at least 3-5 dealerships in person after knowing the lowest number.
3. Tell them right away not to run credit check. Negotiate first and ask them to print a copy of their number
4. Once you are convinced with their final number, ask them to add extras like free oil change, road side assistance, window tint, accessories, etc..
5. It might be a good idea to shop around the end as much deals as possible.
Hope this helps.

Not sure I understand your "week old" concept but to get a 2013 Civic LX for $17-18k out the door in CA, the purchase price would need to be around 2-3000 below invoice. That just is not going to happen. I'm not sure how you came to the conclusions stated in your post, but you might want to reevaluate your source/s.
#10640 of 10741 Honda Civic LX Sedan - Automatic
Oct 04, 2013 (3:45 pm)
At the end of September I purchased a 2013 Civic LX Sedan - Automatic in Richmond, VA as a cash purchase as follows:
DMV Fee: $61
Proc. Fee: $399
Sales Tax: $728
I emailed the Internet sales managers at all dealers within 50 miles and the above price was the lowest I was quoted. The highest was about $900 more. I believe developing a specification for the model you want and emailing it to all the dealers in your area is the best way to get a good deal on a new car. I learned to do this on this forum - thank you all!

Congrats on the new Civic Charlie - pretty good deal at 1100 below invoice when you factor in the 399 dealer doc fee. Your sales tax rate is pretty reasonable - about half of what we pay in CA - really helps your ultimate out the door.
Enjoy the new car!

Just curious - what is it about this deal that allowed you to achieve about 2600 below invoice when most everybody else is getting around 13-1500 below? Please let the forum know how you were able to negotiate this. Also, clean deal or was a trade involved?

Pretty good deal - about 1300 below invoice when the 599 doc fee is factored in.
Enjoy your new Civic!
