What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the Honda Civic

Price of the Honda Civic: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20084dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
I got good interest rates from Honda. They also paid off the remainder of my lease on my Ford Ranger so I could trade it in 2 months early. There are also many options available on a lease. Overall it was cheaper than a similar Toyota Corolla.
20084dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
While not the bargain they once were, Honda still offers good value for the money. Maintenance costs are relatively low as well.
20082dr Coupe 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It is the "fastest" car under $20k and very fun to drive for the price. You do not feel like you are driving an "economy" car.
20084dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

honda lease rate is very good
20074dr Sedan 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Overall total cost of ownership was far less than other sporty models, to the tune of over $1200/year, before even considering the lower price and less depreciation.

20104dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

A comparable Civic is about $5,000 more than the Forte. Interest rates for 5 year plans were also higher.
20094dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
good sales people but not much in the way of discounts or coming off the sticker or dealing ,at sticker they make at least 1500 per car and they dont really want to deal any off the sticker and say they will sell eventually
20092dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

too expensive

You can expect to pay somewhat of a premium for the name, compared to other cars of similar features/economy.

Too pricey for what you get.

Lease payments were very low.

In the summer of 2007, I bought this car from a Lincoln-Mercury dealership that had taken it in trade - for $8,995. The car was (and still is) in excellent condition.
20034dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4

The Matrix was an affordable car. At the time, there were very few options under $20k that met all our needs.
20034dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4

It was pretty cheap to buy - $8000.

Price was a little higher than I wanted but i guess you pay more for quality.
