I will be buying a 2007 Honda Civic manual transmission since the 2008's are now here. The dealer's have "reduced" them to $16,251 which is the invoice price according to KBB and Edmunds.
I will be trading in a 1997 Honda Accord and the trade in value in good condition (which I believe mine is) is $2,490.00.
I will be seeing someone on Tuesday that was recommended by a friend and want to have all my ducks in order.
Sooo, question is what should I use for bottom line? I'm paying cash so that eliminates financing. I know that the dealer I'm going to has 5 left and it is coming up on the end of the month, so I'm sure they'll be willing to get them off the lot.
I was thinking of starting at $15,000 and working from there. Of course, not letting the sales person know that.
