In the Market for a CNG-Powered Honda Civic? Try the GSA.

If you’re in the market for a previously-owned low-mileage compressed natural gas-powered (CNG) Honda Civic, you’ll do well to check with your Uncle … Uncle Sam, that is. The United States Government has been purchasing CNG-powered Honda Civic GX and NGV models for over a decade. While these vehicles come up for public auction, you need to know where to look or you’ll miss out. Case in point … there’s an auction coming up on October 11th at the Norwalk Auto Auction in Norwalk, California where a total of sixteen CNG Civics are currently slated to cross the block.

They range from a 2001 Civic GX with 45880 miles through a pair of 2009 Civic GX NGVs – one with 68865 on the odometer (the highest of the bunch) and the other with a mere 15754 miles. The lowest mileage CNG Civic in the group is a 2007 model with just 11557 miles on the clock.

The General Services Administration (GSA) auctions are free for the public to attend and bid. You don’t need a dealers license. To keep abreast of the action, check out the GSA Fleet Vehicle Sales website and use the Advanced Search feature.

When you attend an auction, you’re allowed to crawl all over the vehicles and start them up to hear them run, but you cannot drive them. You can watch them driving as they line up for the auction block, but that’s about it. If you bid and win, you need to be ready to pay on the spot.

Carpe diem and caveat emptor, my friends.
