I'm on the edge ( like one foot over the line poised in midair, just hesitating) of buying a 2006 EX-P, Nighthawk Black, MANUAL TRANSMISSION RT4WD that has 25K on the clock. It's also a Certified Honda, so it's got the warranty advantages that go with that. I've negotiated what I think is a decent price ($17900 with all taxes, title, tags) and I have the OK from the missus to pull the trigger.

I'm oddly hesitant to finalize it. :roll: Not sure why, but I'm hesitating.

If my indecision today causes me to "miss out" on this one, how rare is the combination of a manual shift, and 4wd in a low mileage E? If this is a hard to find combination, maybe I should just get my butt over there and sign the paperwork. :eoc:

ell, hell, I just went ahead an bought the damn thing. Realized after posting earlier that if it's the combination I wanted (MT, AWD, color, mileage) then why do I care how hard it would be to find. I knew where one was, so just go get it. So I did. There.:grin:

Wow - that seems like a really great price for such low mileage. And with taxes etc. included?! What is the sales tax percent where you are?

I just paid $17.4K for a 2007 with 27K miles but taxes and tags put me over $19K.

Congrads on your new purchase. Great price. I just paid $17,700 out the door for a 2006 EX-P AWD with 44,000 on the clock and it was also certified. Way to go!

Actual price was $16,800 plus GA tax, title, and tag. The tax varies by the county here in GA, my county is 6.5%. The E had been on their lot for almost 60 days, so they were looking to move it. Sticker price had started at $21500, when they first advertised it.

It is immaculate, not a scratch, not a scuff, and brand new tires. The only flaw I have found is a tiny star in the windshield, no more than half an inch long.

$21,500?!? No wonder it took them so long to move it! I paid less than that for my '06 EX-P (2wd instead of AWD) in 2006 when it was brand new!

Enjoy the new ride!

No kidding! The original window decal was in the paperwork from the previous owner. Original sticker price was $22,800 in 2006!!:grin:

You bought well. I just bought the same thing 2 weeks ago except not a "P", not a manual and 45,000 on the clock. Enjoy it!

I'm sorry I missed out on this thread originally, but glad you went ahead with your purchase. I own an '06 MT AWD and I LOVE it!
