I'm considering buying a 2007 Certified pre-owned Honda Civic Sedan with 24,000 miles. I understand that this vehicle was under recall for 2 potential problems.
1) "THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH" Failure may result in a loss of brake lights and an increased risk that the vehicle could be struck in the rear. In addition, a failed brake light switch could prevent shifting the transmission from the park position (vehicles with an automatic transmission). Dealers will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the switch.
2) "O-RING SEAL" This could cause a wheel to fall off of the vehicle, possibly resulting in a crash. Honda said it will replace any damaged parts for free.
I'm confident that the problems were fixed. What I'd like to know is if these issues or the process of repairing them could make the vehicle unsafe. Also, does this effect the resale value of the car? Is it reasonable to ask for a discount on the selling price? The dealer offered a firm 'out the door' price of $14,800. I offered $14,000 firm and he wouldn't budge.

Recalls like that are usually a "Tempest in a teapot" and they amount to nothing.
Yes, in some rare instance, something "could" possibly happen and that is why they have to use such strong wording.
Relax, resale values won't be affected.

Need some input on this. Does the standard Security System with Remote Entry in the Civic beep when you lock/unlock you door?
I am trying to figure out if I need a alarm install from the dealer or not.

Ok the price quote I got before was misleading, since they tried to add extra fees. But most of them come close to these prices below
Here are some quotes I got recently that are legit,
Honda Civic 2010 LX: $19,300 Out the door
Honda Civic 2010 LX-S: $20,000 Out the door
These prices seem good to me, but I'm trying to get the LX-S for $19,300 like I saw someone here had before. Is there anyone in the NYC area that has bought a 2010 that thinks this is possible?

On my 09 Civix EX-L you have to press "lock" button twice on your key FOB - then you hear a beep and that is when the alarm is activated.
You can test it while sitting in the car, lock the car with key FOB and then open the door - you should hear the alarm then...

You may get very frustrated trying to match some of the prices some people in these forums say they paid.
Also " out the door" pricing can vary by huge amounts based on local tax and license rates. Some stores charge huge doc. fees too.

I live in LA, CA, i am looking for a civic coupe LX 2010, 2009 no matter becase there really no different at all. I got a quote from Airport Marina Honda in LA, it shows MSRP $18915 and the E. price is $17450.00+tax & DMV fee

this will be my first new car (not first car but first new one) so i really need some advise and help, thank you so much!
#9231 of 10743 2010 Civic coupe EX-L price w/ navigation in California
Dec 20, 2009 (8:36 pm)
I am looking to buy a new Honda Civic with leather and navigation. As this is my first NEW car purchase I have no idea where to start on the negotiating price. I see that Edmunds lists invoice at $22,619 including the destination charge. Is that where I should start? I know that first trip to the dealership they said that they could get me out the door in the car for just under $26k. I looked up fees on California's DMV page and if I were to pay 23k for the car the tax and registration comes to 2,362.00 so it seems like they are only about $1000 over the invoice and fees to me. This somehow doesn't seem right because this price is before any haggling whatsoever. Please help. I really have no idea what I'm doing here.
