The Civic is a really hot car now, due to high gas prices. They hold their resale value better than almost any other car sold in America. Personally, I bought a 2001 Honda Civic EX with 50,050 mi in March 2004 for $7,600. I sold it last week for $6,995 with 99,400 miles on the odometer. I had three minor fender benders and showed all the damage to the propective buyers. Nonetheless, they were eager to buy it and paid cash money. My cost to drive this car came to $11.50 per month, as I put just under 50,000 miles on it and it depreciated a mere $605 in the 4.5 years that I owned it! You can't do that with any other car.

(tongue in cheeck) You're greedy! How dare you sell a car for that price???
Thats what I here all the time when people are trying to buy a Civic at or below invoice. Your example is why a Civic is worth MSRP.

If a Honda Dealer offers you MSRP, don't forget to walk away. Typical talk from a salesman again.

Can you choose any color you like and when is the delivery date?

Yes you can, after I had negotiated a deal with the color I wanted, he had already put it on order and gave me a production number over the phone and the production date of 9/24. I then went to dealer next day and left $500 deposit. They were the only 2 dealers (see above) that even acknowledged you could order an 09 on the date of that Honda posted its news release.

I received an email from El Cerrito Honda (Nor Cal) that they still have 18 '08 Civics in stock. I also received emails from many other dealers in my area that they are closing out stock on '08 Civics.
Seems like the supply isn't as tight as they'd like you to believe.

18 Civics is nothing for a large volume store.
And what are they? Slow selling SI's or 5 speed coupes?
We have some in stock too but not many of the ones that sell the best.

There is plenty of supply but the problem is finding a dealer with that supply, for example Curry Honda in NY has 30 in stock while still some others only had 5. They tell me they can no longer 'get' cars from other dealerships during the clearance. Also there are NO deals to be had, MSRP to maybe $400 less. This is what I have found.
