Looking for a new car (Civic EX 2016 OR Corolla S Plus 2016 OR Elantra SE 2017)

itsmehere07 364 99 May 28, 2016 at 11:37 AM
I am planning to buy a new car for my daily commute purpose. I test drive few and finally narrowed down to 3 models. 2016 Civic EX, 2016 Corolla S Plus and 2017 Elantra SE.

I am open for all 3 models and thinking on whichever model i get best deal i will get it. If i am saving couple of thousands on one, i don't mind getting it compare to other models.

I need to get it by August 3rd week so what you experts think, Should i take advantage of this Memorial Day long weekend deals OR will prices go down further during August as we are moving close to year end?

Please share your export comments and ideas. This is first time i am buying a brand new cars so will appreciate inputs from experts.

Thanks in advance

the op hasn't been updated in a long while, but there is still activity and the principles still hold true Smilie.

i am in a research phase right now and planing to get the car during the last week of June/4th July long weekend to take advantage of month end.

Like you said personally i like the 2016 civic better as you get better feature for $ spent compare to corolla. I do not like the interior of corolla very much but if i am saving 2 to 3k on it i do not mind getting it.

So, what happened? I am also in the market for a 2017 Elantra. How did you do?
TrueCar gives a price of about 16,500 for the SE with automatic transmission here in SoCal.
I'd be happy to do a little better...

I'm a college student with very little money whose 2000 Volkswagen Golf just failed the emissions test and needs transmission repairs and oxygen sensor work. Thus, I just want to sell it (for about $1k). I only have $4k to buy another car. Any suggestions?
