#573 of 622 Lease special
Apr 30, 2009 (10:27 pm)
Just took delivery of a '09 Civic Hybrid base model (w/ mud guards and wheel locks ) from Autowest Honda (Sac. area) after a couple of days of negotiations.
Payments: $218.48/mo. for 36 mo., $0 drive off (incl. 8.25% tax)
(1st mo. payment, licence and fees were incl. in cap cost to make $0 drive off)
1 free "hybrid" oil change (supposed to be synthetic oil)
Another dealer was going to sell it to me for $18,550 and I could have saved ~$9/mo, but I didn't want to drive out there.
I think you still have a few days until this deal is over, but the month starts over again so they may not be so desperate. Good luck!
#574 of 622 Dealer Offer for 2009 HCH in Southeast Florida
May 03, 2009 (2:49 pm)
Looking at 2009 HCHs with navigation and leather seats and have a dealer offer of $3,000 off the MSRP and $200 below Blue Book for my Honda trade in. Is this where the market is at now or should I keep looking?
Taking $3,000 off the MSRP of $27,520 is about $300 below the Consumer Reports Bottom Line Number.
I would like to complete the transaction by the end of this week if all the numbers seem reasonable. I am relocating in a week for a new job and I'm not sure where I have more leverage--in Southeast Florida or where my family and I are moving--St. Louis, MO. I am not focused on the absolute bottom line number, but somewhere near that number.
The dealership kept trying to push me into an Insight but I had great experience and enjoyed the extra leg room for the passengers in a Civic Sedan in the early 90s and have been leaning towards the HCH because of that.
Thanks in advance for your comments!

Sounds good.. Just be patient though and don't be afraid to politely refuse any offer. You can ALWAYS return a couple days later and say, "yup, I'll take you up on that offer of 5 days ago!" regardless of a time limit that they may tell you. During that time just go to a competitor and tell them what so and so dealership is offering you.
Patience and foot work if you have the time and effort.

regarding the Insight. The initial prices that they are charging will come down dramatically in another 6-8 weeks.
#577 of 622 Did I massively overpay for my new Honda Civic Hybrid?
May 05, 2009 (10:15 am)
I am feeling a little angry that the Honda dealership told me with a straight face that I was getting the "best deal around", and that my price of $29,600 was making them "lose their shirts", but someone mentioned that dealerships can sell at "break even point" or even at a loss and still make money on the deal based on their relationship with the Honda Corp.
Here are the stats:
2009 Honda Civic Hybrid with leather and navigation, 120K/6year extended warranty, taxes & fees OUT THE DOOR for $29,600.
Can anyone tell me was I robbed blind? Or was this price within reason?
this Honda was purchased from a Los Angeles area dealership....

I just got the civic hybrid w/ leather and nav two days ago at an orange county dealer (OC Honda World). I didn't add any extra warranty stuff. The price was $23666 + 595 acquisition fee. They told me the price was $2000 under invoice because of incentives from Honda that were good thru May 4.

So with taxes you paid about $26,561 or so?
#580 of 622 2009 Civic LX
May 05, 2009 (8:57 pm)
I wanted to know if anyone has Purchased / Leased a 2009 Civic LX in the month of May or if they know of any special financing, special discounts, money factor/buy rate, etc. I am in need of this information ASAP. I am looking to get into a new car in a week or two due to a lease transfer. Are the 2010's coming out soon? Thanks in advance!

yes that is correct. The price I posted did not include tax.
#582 of 622 2009 Civic EX
May 08, 2009 (5:38 am)
I got what I think is a good internet price on an EX sedan with automatic for 17500, but the fees include a "processing fee" off 399. Is that something I should be paying, or trying to negotiate to get rid of?
