Especially being year end. They should have given him huge discounts on top of a rub and tug gift certificate.
Why? OP was looking at the 2019 model. If he didn't get anything off MSRP okay he didn't do too hot, but its not like he's gonna get a free back massage bay for a 2019 model

Turn in your RFD membership card on your way out.

You can't come to RFD and ask if you got a good deal. Some of these guys are masters of their craft and would get a better deal than you due the amount of research and effort.

Just enjoy the car now and forget about it.
Excellent post. Wish I could give it another upvote. Quoting you're fantastic post is the best I can do to show appreciation.

Lmao what a horrible deal. This is why car salespeople make so much money. I saw a Hyundai Kona sell for $40k after taxes once.

If there is no return policy after you bought something and you are the type who will feel buyer's remorse, you should not have asked for advice / comments, unless you like to learn from your mistakes.

I didn't take the email bomb approach, took up one of the buying service recommended here on RFD, and got hosed by the Toyota dealership I will never deal with ever again.

Enjoy your Civic and volume knobs and make sure you check if it's affected by the oil dilution.

1. Take delivery tomorrow
2. Put car on Kijiji and Autotrader
3. Sell at a 15%-20% loss
4. Go back to your Honda dealership
5. Pull out suitcase of cash
6. Negotiate better
7. Take delivery and feel better

I just solved your problem.

I m surprise this thread only get 8 downvotes.

2 killing mistakes.

1. Paid MRSP with free winter tires.
2. Sign sales agreement and ask if he can go back to negociate.

When you were in school and finish your exam. Did you teacher allow you to walk back to the classroom and change your answer because you somehow think you can answer better.

Civic winter tires 2016+
4 x Michelin Xi3. $620 at simply tires installed or Bridgestone WS80 at $570 plus Tax installer.

You could even get better price with rebates and discount at Costoc or CT.

What dealer sell for is not always the price you should paid. Same for your car.

Op, forget the posters making fun of you. You can try with your sales guy to see if they can throw in some freebies like mats, tints, etc. But even if you don’t get anything extra now, forget how much you paid for the car. Just get the delivery and enjoy the new car. Don’t think about the $$$. Think about the brand new car you are about to drive off the lot. It’s time to Enjoy the car!
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

Why did you decide to buy a brand new car if you worry about that?

I wish I could downvote this thread again.

The QEW is a parking lot. Your brakes will be “bedded in” in no time
