Honda and Acura cut prices on 2010 models
Honda Canada announced price reductions Nov. 3, 2009, on three of its core 2010 Honda products, effective immediately.
Now that confidence in the Canadian economy seems to be improving, we want to keep that momentum going," said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice-president of Honda Canada Inc.
"So as part of our commitment to Canadians, we have decided to create more value for our customers with a series of price
reductions on our most popular models -- Civic, Accord and CR-V."
The price reductions are as follows:
$1,000 All Canadian-made 2010 Civic sedans and coupes, including Civic Si models
