$293 if you did zero DAS, seems like too much for civic, another brand might get to tier 1 one too, any idea what your credit score is?

When they used soft credit pull, they told me my credit score was 623 which is my TransUnion Auto Fico, but when I saw the credit report they pulled in the finance office, it said my credit score was Experian 590. So my credit is not great but they still gave me Tier 2 because I told them 2 other dealerships were giving me MF 0.00172 (Also, I have a paid off auto loan on my credit)

Considering your credit situation, that’s a pretty good deal.

Thanks Man! That’s all I wanted to hear, hahaha

Just if anyone wants to check/compare deals out there…

MSRP $24,645, gross cap cost $21,412 including the acquisition fee of $595. Everything rolled in brings us to $240/month incl. tax and really $0 drive-off. Couldn’t believe it as there was no other negotiation when we arrived at the dealership. All done via email. Certainly not the best deal, but definitely a solid one.

Saw the Sport with less MSRP going out for $199 in some places, but couldn’t go any closer to that.

Hi, thanks for your pots about the civic hatchback EX. Any chance you can provide me information about where you got that deal at 240/mo after tax and 0 drive-off? I’d like to get a starting point to start shopping around and I think you got a decent deal.

0 due at signing 325 including tax or

My employee just picked up an EX hatchback for $250 before tax, zero drive off, 12k/year. Hollywood Honda just FYI.

Mind sharing which dealer you leased this from?

Would you be willing to share the info for this deal?
