#5911 of 10743 How much 2008 Civic LX 4dr AT????
Aug 17, 2007 (4:10 pm)
I am new to this board and I plan to buy a Civic LX 4dr AT.
When Honda release 2008 model, how much it.
For example if the 2007 out of door price is 18500 now, how much will be 2008 out of door price (19500 , 20000 or same price) ? Any idea?

I'd bet the price of the '08 models will only rise between 1% and 2%, but don't quote me on this. I'd be very surprised to see the prices remain the same actually.

Take the source as it is....a dealer told me they are expecting the 08 prices to increase 3.5%

No matter how high the '08 prices go ...
The fact is the dealers will be trying to get close to MSRP for the '08. They are now willing to go as low as invoice (or below) on the '07 models to clear them off the lot.
Do the math. The difference between invoice on an '07 and MSRP on an '08 (assuming a 2% price incease over the '07 model) will be substantial, something like $1,600 ($1,200 plus $400).
If you are currently looking for a Civic you should be focusing on making the purchase at the end of this month. The model year turnover is fast approaching ...

You may be right, some price increase for 08. I hope I can find and buy the right 07 so as to avoid that possible increase. But I do wonder. Its not like they have to re-tool the Civic factory, find new suppliers for materials, etc. like they had to for the 08 Accord. Heck, what will change on the Civic, the window sticker changes from 07 to 08? They will have, I think I read somewhere, a leather OPTION so that will mean they have to print up some new stickers for those models. And then maybe they will have tire pressure monitors on all trim levels.. But no changes on engine or radio or colors. So will be interesting to watch. Maybe they can just syke out customers as it is a “new year 08” and so charge more for the 08. But maybe not, as there is competition for our money. Too much price increase and people will be looking more at Toyota and Nissan and Mazada. And the whole economy and stock market is a little down swing so too much price increase could hurt sales. Just my .02. I hope I can find the right 07.
#5916 of 10743 Pricing on Brand New 2006 Civic
Aug 18, 2007 (5:41 pm)
I have been waiting for the civic clearance on 2007 models but the prices arent as good as toyota's. Best price for a civic is around $1000 below MSRP. I have seen corolla LEs MSRP of $17.5k go down as low as $13.8k.
I have noticed that some honda dealers still carry 2006 models on the civic, like elk grove honda. Anyone hear got any good deals on 2006 brand new models? How low do dealers usually offer on 2006 models at this time?

I in PA as well, and I have been pricing as well. I am waiting till this Friday or next to buy as I am sure they will want to meet month goals, etc.
The Best Quotes I have received:
Moon Honda - $17,231.67 plus tax +109 Title/Plates (+270) Rainbow Honda - $16,961.67 Plus Tax + 83 Title/Plates
Valley Honda - Said they will match to make the sale
From this I am going to see who gives me the best deal on my trade-In and be done Friday afternoon sometime. I emailed the dealer I want to deal with my best quotes and told him whoever gives me the best overall value I am buying that day. I have my financing done and ready with check in hand.
The forums have saved me a ton already. Before I would look at MSRP talk down from there and feel good I got 500-700 off sticker...

Back in January, I bought my 2007 civic (Lx, 4Dr, auto) from Moon Honda for $16,999 + tax and a temporary plate fee of about $30... because I registered it out of state. I too priced shopped online first. Moon assured me that they would also price match anyone in the area. They were very easy to deal with and also very professional. They also have a "Courtesy trade" option if you want to sell your car to someone else. They handle all of the paper work, and you end up not paying taxes on the amount of what your car sells for. The only catch is that you have to bring the buyer with you and complete all of the paper work for that and also your new car on the same day. I used craigslist for advertising and selling mine.
Being a female, I was worried about getting jerked around on price, but once I said that and was stern from the get go, I was offered $16,999 from the start FIRST PRICE. I dealt with Tommy Trasport, and I'd highly recommend him to anyone. I will definitely go back to him for my next vehicle. If you'd like to use me as your referral, definitely let me know! I think they give little perks if you refer someone! Good luck!

Ok well now I feel more comfortable with the offer I have as it's in the range of yours and you're on the other side of the state. Thanks for the reply.
