    Here are the links from Edmunds and KBB

    1)Why are they different?
    2)Can the dealer sell the car less than the invoice price?
    3)In my case, dealer was showing the price from KBB and offering me the mid value of invoice price and MSRP. Can I ask the dealer for the price lower than the invoice price?

    On Edmunds, you have to click on the red tab, PRICE WITH OPTIONS, then go to the next page...

    There, it will add the destination charge... and the invoice prices will match.

    You consider paying 500.00 over invoice as getting "ripped off"?

    Well, I guess the SECRET is out of the bag now...! :surprise:
  • For San Francisco (registering in SF) I was just quoted a price of $17,355 + all other fees = $19,364 OTD for a 2010 Fit Sport AT. Is that good for this area right now?

    I'm considering waiting until the last week or two in december- do you think it's worth waiting until then on such a low margin car like this?
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,362
    There is so little margin in these that there is really nowhere to go, price wise.
  • Hi, sounds like a good price since it includes sales tax and destination fee.
    I just paid $16,190 plus doc fees of $325 and Maine tax of 5%
    good luck
    so far i like my fit

    I have paid $18,300 + tax+title fee+125 doc fee for 2009 sports AT with navigation in Delaware. Is this a good deals? I also got honda's 1.9% APR financing for 36 months.
    If anybody recently bough fit sports or sports with navigation, please post the price
  • My internet quoted price of 17,386 + 300 in tax + a $248 service fee and I think a $29 tag fee - so that gets us to about 18k

    Then I added 2 years to the 3 year honda care and got gap insurance - that put me back about another $1500

    so my car quote of 17386, which I thought was about right on and didn't haggle over, by the time I drove it home, I was all in at about 19,500.

    The art of the sale I suppose.
  • A reporter is looking to speak to a consumer who purchased on Honda because of its strong resale value (or ability to hold on to its value). Please send your daytime phone number and the car you purchased to ctalati@edmunds.com by Wednesday, December 2, 2009.

    Just sharing what I know since this forum helped me in the past. Also, I really don't trust any website in terms of the cost. I only believe you guys here because your experience is all real, if not all, i would hope most are real.

    my sister just bought a 2010 Fit Base AT; OTD $18,500 yesterday. This was in the Bay Area. I am sure this is not that great of a deal, but I searched and did not see much inventory close by (at least at the time of search). She really needed a car (old car broke down) and can't wait. So oh well.
  • Price: $15270 ($1140 off MSRP)
    Tax: $954
    Doc fees: $299
    Title/Reg: $125

    Total: $16677

    This was in Tewksbury, Massachusetts (MA)

    What do you guys think? Good or bad deal?
  • I just went to a local dealership here in Bayonne,NJ to test drive a 2010 Honda Fit Sport Automatic transmission. The dealer quoted me $19000 even out-the-door price which includes $198 vehicle protection program/window etching, $279 doc fee, $322 motor vehicle and NJ sales tax. Tried my best to have them deduct the window etching and doc fee, but they won't accept it, says the etching and doc fee are required.. Tried to haggle it down to $18,500 but still no luck.

    Is $19K already a good deal fo this vehicle? No dealer added options. Anybody bought this car for $18,500 OTD price?

    Should I wait until the last couple weeks of December?
  • The vehicle protection/window etching is B.S. , and the doc fee is usually jacked up. Registration for 4 years should be only around $200. The dealers find ways to screw us on all these numbers. I would suggest that you try Academy or Open Road Honda; I think you can get the $18,500 OTD price.

    I just bought a base AT, at $17,070 OTD :

    $14,800
    $710 dest

    $1085.70 tax (NJ 7%) - The advantage of buying this month is that this tax is a deduction on 2009 taxes.
    =========

    $16,595.70

    (Some of the B.S. starts now)

    $7.50 Tire tax fee
    $6 online motor vehicle fee
    $211 registration fee (dealer tried to charge $296, but supposedly they'll refund overcharge; I doubt it though, they'll show it as their service fee or something I'm sure)
    $3 Temp sticker fee
    $250 doc fee

    ===========

    $17,070 or so;

    This paragraph explains the doc fee, which shows you how they can rip you off:

    "It is a fee charged by the Dealer in an amount that covers costs and reflects the value of the benefit provided by the service. In some cases, the fee includes some services that may be optional or may be performed by the customer."
  • Seems like a good deal, thought I would compare with other. Consumer Reports says the invoice price is $16,645 and destination charge is $710. My state has 6% sales tax.

    $19271 OTD in Los Angeles County, CA.

    The vehicle price is $17209
    (It includes some extras such as wheel locks, rear bumper applique, cargo tray & door edge film).

    Sales tax is $1683 (9.75%)
    The rest ($379) is paperwork, title, registrations etc etc
  • Bought at the Scott Robinson Honda dealership in Torrance, CA
    Went through the Costco Auto Buying Program
    Paid $100.00 over the invoice they showed me.
    Added the rear bumper applique and the cargo tray.
    Total before taxes - $17645.50
    Document Prep Fee - $55.00
    Sales Tax for all the above - $1725.80
    Optional DMV electronic filing fee - $29.00

    Then I got the Honda Care Extended Warranty for 8 years 120,000 miles - $1945.00
    I think I totally got taken for this one. i showed them a quoted price from warrantydirect.com for 6 years 100,000 miles for ~ ~1000.00 which includes coverage if a covered part breaks a non-covered part and if a non-covered part breaks a covered part. They went through the sales pitch of "oh these types of warranties don't get honored. they are out to make money etc." I asked if I could get the honda care extended warranty later so I could think about it and compare the contracts and the salesperson said "No. Then the car is considered used."
    They dropped the price for the 8 yrs, 120,000 warranty about $200.00 dollars.
    What do you all think?

    Thanks.
  • I would recommend you look at the smart shopper board for extended Honda warranties, there are better deals out there.
