Will a 50" fit in a Civic?

I'm planning on picking up my tv tonight. I think it will fit in my 06 Civic (the back seats fold down) but it's probably going to be tight. Has anyone done this?

In a Civic?:eek: I would say with the box, no way.... I assume you would be planning on setting it on it's back, which is not the best idea anyway. And with the box, it will be around 40'' across as well, so that would be quite a squeeze.. Borrow a friends pickup or van or just have them delivery it for ya.

Your trying to be too frugal, your going to attempt to move an expensive display in a very tight area any forcing or jamming could damage your set and you have no course of liability either get a friend with a Van of SUV or pay the del charges. These displays are not made to FLEX.

FYI a 46" SONY KDL46W4100 fit into a Toyota YARIS. I saw this with my very eyes as the guy got the same TV I got on the same day and they stuffed it in there added with a 5.1 SONY surround sound system. Which he had trouble fitting in.

In the box? I fit my 46XBR in the box, into my son's Murano with no problem and cushioned the ride with bed pillows for the 40 mile ride (an ounce of prevention)

No disrespect, but putting a 46" in a mid sized SUV is a LOT different that putting a 50" into one of the smallest compacts made.
With that said, I got a 46" Samsung in the back seat of my Saturn last Black Fri. It was a little tight, but did not have to push or flex box or anything.
All you have to do is look on most websites for the TV you are getting and they will tell you dimensions of the Tv, and then dimensions of the boz size, then just measure the opening in your back seat through door.
My guess would be no.

I agree with you 100%, I was just indicating he would be safer trying to enlist the help of a friend with an SUV rather than chance damaging his purchase, of course if replacing it in case of damages it might sustain, is not a problem then by all means, go for it. LOL

Of course I'm not going to try to bend or jam it in. I'm not going to take it out of the box to transport it either.

It's not a matter of being frugal either. I have friends with SUVs but was wondering if I could pick it up on my way home from work tonight. I don't think it will fit, but thought someone might respond and say I have a Civic and my 50" fit (or did not fit).

Go to a site that includes the shipping measurements for it if you can find a site that has it, or just pay Home Depot $20.00 to rent a van from them to transport it. Why take a chance for $20.00?

Sorry, just trying to save a Noobie or Novice the expense of possibly destroying his new toy, some people will give it just that one little extra push or shove before "OH SHIT !" happens I hope it fits for ya.

i bought a 52" on saturday and it was at least 8" to big to fit in the back of my 99 civic hatchback, the rear strut towers are to close together. in fact the guys at CC didn't believe i was the one buying the tv as i was waiting in the loading area, the proceeded to laugh at me. i had to bring my truck up the following day to get it, and even still it fit snuggly between both wheel wells in the bed of an s10. i suggest getting a truck or suv to move it

For what its worth I have an 89 prelude and my 42 inch just barely fit in the trunk when I got it. I had to put it in sideways and strap the trunk lid down.

Rizz is a great guy. Why would you make comments like that? Even if joking - not really so funny.

I could not fit a 50" Pio Elite in my SUV today. Was surprised, to say the least. Will have to have it delivered.
