#452 of 10743 Good deal - 2003 Civic LX sedan (automatic, no side air bags)
Feb 06, 2003 (12:54 pm)
I paid $15,000 plus 6% taxes, plus $186 doc & DMV fees. I got different price quotes from different dealers, including $15,194 from far away. I went to the dealer right near my house and told them that I wanted to do business with them, and that I planned to bring my car in for service, but I was willing to go far away for a better deal. What could they do for me? They beat the price and gave me $800 for my 1990 Honda Civic Hatchback DX with 115,400 miles trade in.
I put $6,000 cash down,financed at 1.9%, so my payments are $163. I love it.

if i were you i would go for the Si for $14800. if it includes destination, it is a really good deal.the financing on the new si, if qualified, is 1.9%, the financing on certified civic is 4.9%. if ifnanced $14 800 at 1.9% for 60 months the monthly payments are $258, $12 000 financed for 60 months at 4.9% gives you monthly payments of $225. the difference is negligeble. and you don't have to deal with someone else's problems, and you get a more modern vehicle.
just my 2 cents

I take my car to a detailing shop when it needs to be waxed (which is about right now- eesh!) but I have in the past used Turtle Wax- ick, never again. I'd rather pay out of pocket to have someone do it for me
Enjoy your new Civic! I'm jealous at your interest rate! That wasn't offered when I bought my 2002 Civic in Jan. '02. Lucky girl!
Enjoy the Civic!

#457 of 10743 2002 SIs dirt cheap
Feb 07, 2003 (6:27 pm)
Well if anyone thinks 02 SI's are hard to buy, lol, you are mistaken. A desparate salesman just left a message on my machine offering the car for $14,500, even though the lowest he would go just a month and a half ago was $15,300. They still must be stocked up on them. If I was still interested in the car I would jump on the deal, but no longer interested (waiting in hopes for a 04' CTR), besides I don't use my car. Maybe I'll buy one of their leftover 02's in May when I'm out of college and they are going for $13k, haha.
From dealer in NY/CT border.
#458 of 10743 I bought mine at invoice price!

I just purchased my 2003 Civic Sedan EX this weekend. External Blue Pearl, 5 speed with side air bags at invoice thanks to carsdirect.com.
Zero hassle, a little at time of financing (at 1.9%), but the representative found me the car that I wanted and within a week I drove it home. I live in NYC and had to get a friend to drive me to Union, NJ. The hassle-free experience made it all worth it.

#460 of 10743 $400 below invoice on 2003 LX Coupe
Feb 14, 2003 (12:51 pm)
I'm in central NJ and just bought a 2003 Civic LX Coupe automatic (no side airbags or other options) for $14,500 incl. destination. Total out the door after 6% taxes and fees, etc. was $15,500.
$ 14,500 price including destination
+ 870 tax
+ 72 reg/title fee
+ 91.50 doc fee
Good deal and a very pleasurable experience from David Michael Honda in Freehold, NJ. My family has now bought a total of three cars from them since 1991 and I regularly service my 91 Accord there. Overall a wonderful dealership!

I used to own a 91 Accord LX, that was a great car.
