The Honda Civic has been a classic and top selling car for years. I used to own one myself and loved it. But over the course of the last few year the Honda Fit has moved in to steal a little of the Civic thunder. Granted, the Fit isn’t about to topple the Civic’s top selling status, but never the less in this economy more and more people are looking for better MPG and the fit certainly delivers. Look at eBay Motors and you’ll see that both the Honda Civic and Honda Fit retain their resale price very well… there are few real “bargains” for those searching eBay classifieds for a deal.
Also worth noting is if you do a search in eBay Motors Parts you’ll see that replacement parts for both the Honda Civic and Honda Fit are extremely high, so on top of paying a premium price to purchase the vehicle, you have to consider the price of parts and repairs when deciding to own them. Granted, neither of these vehicles is prone to malfunction or need of repair, but still, it’s worth mentioning.
eBay Motors is a great place though for most people looking to find a good deal on a new used car. The Honda Civic and Fit aside, most other cars can be found on bargain looking at both eBay Motors and eBay Classifieds. Many people also find good bargains on Autotrader, and even if you don’t purchase a vehicle through Autotrader you’ll be surprised at the level of information and the diversity or resources you can find there.
In fact if you are specifically looking to get a Honda Civic you can really use the power of Autotrader to search for prices in a different region of the country were prices may be considerably lower. In the central plains regions, for example, typically gas prices are lower and so these vehicles tend to sell for a couple of thousand dollars less than on either the west or east coast.
Many people have found great deals on eBay Motors as well, especially if you’re willing to travel to pick up your new Honda Civic or other vehicle. Or alternatively you can arrange to have it shipped to you by a commercial shipper for less than $1,000; so depending on how good of a deal you were able to get, it still may be worth it. The bottom line is to use all of your resources, like Autotrader, eBay Motors and eBay classifieds in your search, and even if you aren’t able to get a good deal on a Honda Civic or Fit you can still find many other comparable vehicles for a deal. You may well like the Nissan Versa or Toyota Prius.
