Reddit User Builds Honda Civic Type R Markup Hitlist

Sports Cars / 12 Comments

One user is fed up with dealer markups, so they made a list.

One Reddit user, apparently fed up with Civic Type R markups, has made a spreadsheet of all the worst offenders. Before we get into this, we should also acknowledge that the below spreadsheet is from one user on one internet forum claiming a massive number of Honda dealers gave them these numbers. So, take these figures with a grain of salt.

As soon as the Type R debuted, we knew that dealers were going to mark up the Type R. The last Honda Civic Type R suffered from the same rash of markups, and on top of that, this isn't even the first time someone has done something like this.

Toyota owners did the same thing in March of this year, making a list of offending dealers and publishing them online. The account, u/oObunniesOo, has done the same. Frankly, some of these are almost too absurd to believe. Not one, but six Honda dealers are allegedly selling the Type R with a massive $25,000 markup.

One dealer, Stevens Creek Honda, has given an out-the-door price of $79,000 for a car with an MSRP of $44,385. As of publishing, Stevens Creek Honda is closed, but we will reach out for comment when they open in an attempt to verify pricing.

Moreover, some dealers have allegedly taken even more sketchy paths. Spreen Honda Loma Linda has a claimed $20,000 markup on their Type Rs but "won't discuss prices over the phone," per the spreadsheet.

This account claims to belong to the wife of someone on the hunt for a new Type R, so again, take these figures with a grain of salt until we can confirm at least one of these.

The cheapest markup on the list is a "mere" $5,000, still a hefty markup on a $40,000 vehicle. Until supply chains further stabilize and the auto market cools, we expect stories like this to stay the norm.
