Thank you so much for your help!
We are looking at the Hyundai because of it's 5 year b2b and 10 year powertrain. My sister has a lemon (Nissan Sentra 2002) and needs something reliable. I can sleep better with a good warranty.
one more question - if we went with used honda, how can I find out the best cost of additional warranty and what types do they sell - 3 years and more?
#9627 of 10744 how to effectively negotiate the price for 2010 honda civic in October?
Jul 13, 2010 (11:35 am)
Does anyone have experience on what the pricing for 2010 civic could be in October when 2011 models come in?
What would be the best strategy in buying this model when new models roll in?

legacy87 -- wow. Total: $17.709?
Damn -- I went to Hillside Honda and tried haggling with them. I saw someone posted they got theirs, or a friends, a 2010 Honda Civic LX Sedan in the $14,000 range? That's sick.
Well, I'm in need of a ride and went today, and I'm trying to gauge the pricing. I really don't want to pay, including taxes and everything else more than 16.000. You think I can pull it off?

Nothing wrong with a Hyundai, they keep making their cars better and better. I think you will find (as I did getting a car for my son) that once you put AC, ABS, and a stereo on most any cheap car you are getting close to the price of a Civic with the current deep discounts. I did the cheap least with a payment including taxes under $200 a month with 1st payment and tags paid at signing. Hard (impossible?) to touch that. After 3 years you can buy the car, sell it to a dealer like CarMax, or just turn it in a walk away.
There is a Honda extended warranty forum here on Edmunds, you can find info there on getting a discount HondaCare warranty on a new or used Honda. The dealers can no longer sell "on the Internet" but you can still buy via a phone call. If she gets a lemon Honda, it will be one of the very few that were made.
#9630 of 10744 Prices since July 1st

I've been haggling numerous dealers in my area for a honda civic lx auto. The best price I've been able to get is 15728 w/dest. which translates to 17657.00 OTD (7% sales tax). This is a little frustrating because in June prices were at 15150 w dest. and less than 17000 OTD. Does anyone have any price quotes or prices paid for the month of July?

Civic LX auto SEDAN or coupe? I will assume sedan...
What is your area? Perhaps someone could suggest a dealership to work with for better pricing? Also, try dealers farther away for better prices. Around here it can be hard to deal, but drive 3-4 hours and you can get much better prices.
$15,728 w/dest is a nice price. How much is the dealer doc or prep fee? I paid $15,999 + $398 dealer fee last month and thought I got a really nice deal. Remember that the $1k dealer money goes away if you do the cheap Honda Finance deal, but stays if you do the discounted lease, pay cash, or do any other financing.
Keep in mind this is mid-month and some dealers will not get highly motivated until the end of the month. Last month there was an additional stepped incentive available that combined with the $1k dealer money to let some dealers (that met or exceed their quota) to offer some really nice prices.

Thanks for the reply Dwynne. I forgot to mention that the price I got was for a coupe and that I'm in South Florida. I'm paying cash so I'm taking the $1000 over the special financing. I will take your advice and start contacting dealers that are farther away. I plan to make my purchase during the last week of July so hopefully that will help. Has anyone heard whether or not the stepped incentive has returned this month? Thanks again.

Looks like invoice on the coupe is $17,522.63 - the $1k would be $16,522. $15,728 sounds like a good price already...
Something else you can do as well - get online dealer quotes from places like right here on Edmunds. They are all no obligation and the dealers will all know you are shopping for the best price and comparing all their quotes. Try it here, some folks report getting some nice prices. Also try overstock and carsdirect to see how those numbers compare.

The end of the month could stand to be better for you. I got my LX auto coupe May 28th for 15150. That was in Norcal. Your price is good. That is around the price they were sitting at till the end of the month and then lowered the price. Good Luck! I love my coupe.
#9635 of 10744 LX sedan auto
Jul 15, 2010 (9:42 am)
I got yesterday a Civic sedan auto for 17500+sales tax OTD. Looks like slightly under invoice, didn't get the 1000 credit as I preferred the 0.9% financing. Perhaps could have bargained harder and got a better deal but what the heck.
