Purchasing a used Honda Civic could be a real steal if you know exactly which city to buy it from. Honda Civic has been one of the most popular compact cars since its launch. This variant of Honda is usually slotted between the Honda Fit and the Honda Accord. The car has been discontinued this year but you can easily look for a used Honda Civic in the state of New York.
The eight generation of this car was built in two separate platforms. The sedan and coupe variant was basically designed with the American population in mind. The hatchback variety was basically built to cater to the European population.
Look at the chart provided below for the price of used Honda Civic in the different cities of New York. The data is for the cars that have been sold between the years 2005 and 2011.
|City||Insurance Average ($)||Median Price ($)||Insurance %|
If you live in Syracuse, where the insurance costs are the lowest, but the median price is the highest – you can buy the Civic from one of the other cities and drive it back to your hometown. The numbers are in your favor, because even if you spend an extra $600-$1,000 on shipping the car from Albany, and a further $300-500 on auto transport insurance, you are still saving in the long run.
The insurance rate in Rochester is also not very high and the median price is competitive. If purchasing the car from Albany is an issue for some reason, you can definitely go to Rochester and purchase this vehicle. If you are from Brooklyn or Buffalo, you should still take the trouble of purchasing it from the other cities mentioned above as you can end up saving a few thousand dollars on upfront costs.
