#1294 of 1599 Buying Civic 2009 after Lease
Jul 02, 2012 (8:29 am)
I just bought 2009 Honda Civic at the end of the lease. I am in MA. The dealer charged me sale tax, doc fee, new plate, title, registration, etc. Is it usual? I already paid all these fees when leased the car (i.e. I wanted to save the plates). Should I pay them again? Also, he said the price is not negotiable, I had to pay whatever I had on the paper. Lastly, after I signed all of the paperwork (financing, etc) the dealer didn't give me anything, put it away and said he "will contact me when he receive package from Honda". He also said that I must go with Honda financing and can't bring check from other bank because it's how
Honda handles buyouts. I just want to make sure it's normal Thanks.

You either pay in cash or go thru HFC. We get some of the double fees in Illinois though I told they do prorate the tax paid. I'd buy the 2009 because you probably have a good price, >>much less than the street pricing for these cars. This car is far better than the 2012 Civics they are trying to sell now.

You're welcome and thank you for noticing, sam_hikes. You're right, the June program is scheduled to run through July 9th. I expect Honda to publish its new July program some time on the 10th. Please feel free to check back with me then for an update.

#1297 of 1599 2012 Civic LX Auto Lease
Jul 05, 2012 (7:25 am)
Just took home a 2012 Civic LX Auto lease 203+tax=220/month, 0 down, 0 1st payment (35 payments from lessee, term of lease 36 months). Acquisition fee rolled in to cap cost, so only drive off fees were DMV + doc fees - about $300. Basically the same terms of the Honda nationally sponsored deal of 0 down, 0 1st payment, $220/month + tax - except that I negotiated payment down to $203/month + tax. I think the money factor was either 0.00077 or 0.000670. I'll have to do some backward calculation.
During research, I compared all of the various deals advertised and from neighbors & friends. I found that once you adjust for down payment, 0 1st payment, and acquisition fee (whether it's paid upfront or rolled in to lease cap cost), they're basically all same. So during negotiation, I tried very hard to negotiate sales price as close to invoice (including $500 holdback). I got to about $500 within dealer's cost. I wanted to try harder but ran out of time.

Outside Boston. Most dealers had the same promo but were tricky on fees, etc. I got 202/mo flat in RI

How does one go about getting the .00067 rate for Honda loyalty only? Is it available to qualified current AHC lease holders?

We are considering purchasing a Honda Civic 2012 ex-l and went to a dealership and they told us that we are looking at $260 a month and $2000 down plus 1st months payment on a 39 month lease.
I am sure if we are over paying or not can you please advise and what should be a good price to pay for this car.
