Welcome to the 9thGen! You can check out TrueCar.com - use it only as a tool to show you some averages paid at "TrueCar" dealers. not all dealers participate, but still will give you an idea. use it as a guide, maybe help negotiate some. I was told by my dealer the time to negotiate would be later in the year, as Honda production is still slow, but picking up...

Just remember, someone will ALWAYS get a better deal. if you need/want the car and are happy with the price...go for it. Maybe if youre not 100% comfortable with it, see what they will include like accessories or maintenance.

There is a thread about what people paid on here, check that out too, i think its under the General section.
Good luck!

good job bro, i would walk away too. there's one thing i hate more than buying a car is being lied to when im buying a car! i understand everyone needs to make money but when you quote me a price and then pull the "oops my numbers were off" crap it really gets to me.

Honestly, i would call the GM for that dealer and tell him that he offered you 23k on the phone, you went to pick up the car and they lied to you. tell them you will report them to the BBB and contact Honda Corporate as well for this Bait/switch tactic.

Price drop in small cars predicted

if youre plannin to buy the new civics ...its better to wait till the end of the month. i read this article " the average new compact car which cost a record $20500 in junne, should fall to about $19300 by the end of the year" small car price should start fallin in sept. and accrlerate through the end of the year.

Yep its always better to wait until the end of the year for a new car. Most dealers want to clear out their current left over stock so sometimes besides manufactuer incentives there's specials the dealerships have too. It's even easier to bargain with prices then.
I'm sure Honda will have their stock back to normal by then so I wouldnt doubt they'll be some good deals come the end of the year.

We didnt want to wait simply because we have no idea what resale values will be like then and since we got crap for a trade in for our Mazda 3 at only 48,000 I can imagine how much less we'd get with over 50.
We could have sold it flat out, but that always takes time......if it will even sell.

I wanted a new car in May/June. I went to Honda looking at Civics, the dealer had 2012's in stock. Couldnt believe 2011's and 2012's were almost the same price. Made no sense to me to get an 8th gen when i could get the 9th for similar price.
Its also hard because we are dealing with next MY already, alot of brands will lower prices in summer "dog days" to make room for the next MY. i bet 2011's are holding price since the shortage of 2012's...usually this doesn't happen though.

I posted my info in the OTD price thread, but i feel i got a good deal, plus the trade in market is actually going up. My car was going to need work, that i dint want to take out of my pocket.
So i got a good trade in, a good price, and now am a happy Honda driver. While i agree, this fall once production is up, prices will likely come down, doesn't mean all buyers should wait. Don't go in blind to make a purchase is my best advice! Know what your trade is worth, and know what you SHOULD spend on the car of choice.

im in the same boat as MikeWa. i needed and wanted a car in May or latest earliest June. Waiting until the end of the year for better deals and all would be great, but im headin off to college this sept and needed a car :)
