So we traded the '04 Civic in with 153k miles, haha we were lucky to get $3000, they wanted to give us $1500 originally.

Father went home with a beautiful 2009 Civic EX, sunroof, spoiler, alloys, etc. I really love the 8th Civic, and having two around the house is just awesome.


ol' and not-so-busted...

i sat in an SI coupe at the tulsa auto show, i couldnt believe how much nicer it was than my brothers 07 TC, and it was the same price after all the options he had.

I'd agree with that statement, the Civic being the last of Honda's good looking cars (don't like what they did with the new Acura front grill, the 04-08 RL's, TSX's, and TL's were dead sexy, and even the 07 and older accord sedans looked nice). The Accord coupe though.......that is looking sexier than ever :)

Thanks guys!

I've always been a Honda fan, and I think the current Civic coupe/sedan and Accord coupe are some of the best looking vehicles right now on the market. Even the Accord sedan is nice, although it takes a lot of criticism being "another bread and butter sedan" in many people's eyes. I've driven many though, so I know most people are just talkin ****. It's a very sporty, well built vehicle. It stands out especially with how boring the Camry is and how played out the new Altima is.

The new Honda Civics are pretty nice :thumb:

My friend has an 08 Sedan....I like it.

Of course, if I ever got a civic, it have to be the SI....

If you're talking about the 2004, they said they'll sell it to a wholesaler.

They originally wanted to give a $1500 trade in, but we got it up to $3000. I know we could have gotten more in private party, but my father needed the car and the money for the down payment, so waiting potential days/weeks/months to sell a car vs. basically swapping them was a no-brainier. And of course, whoever dealer ends up with the '04 will clean it up a little and it'll be "MANAGERS SPECIAL" with $6,995 written on the windshield somewhere in Ohio next month.

...Or maybe in Illinois. Plenty of kids out here in the 'burbs who are looking to buy a cheap Civic for membership in the "I loved The Fast and The Furious and saw it 10 times and now I have to spend $20K pimping a sport compact to prove it" club. Not only am I not a member, but I smoked their club president (I think that's who it was) from a red light last month. Those fiberglass body kit pieces, apparently, add a lot of weight.


Yeah, I do come on here with baggage. :wacko: Luckily, it all fits in the trunk of my Taurus!
