Honda Fit Prices Paid and Buying Experiences

  • just bought a 2010 Base AT in Blue Sensation Pearl from Dublin Honda. $250 below invoice, just plus tax and registration. The OTD was $17,381. I have two regrets though from the purchase experience, not related to the FIT itself. I traded in my old car and I didn't do too good at bargaining the trade in value. That probably cost me about $400 difference. Also, I didn't haggle the dealer to throw in a set of floor mat for the FIT, so I had to get a set from ebay. Otherwise, we are liking the new little FIT that we got. Cheers.

    I paid $19536 delivered to Baltimore with no tax, title or tags.
    No trade in - I sold my 2003 Civic Hybrid on AutoTrader for $5200.
    I added $1720 for 8 years of Honda Care.
    The dealer offered me the Volkswagen van for the same price. However living in urban America I did not want the liability of negotiating the bus through the pre-automobile urban architecture of my community.
    The negotiating terms were:
    1. Fit 2 road bikes vertically so that they would not require the bikes to be laid on top of each other.
    2. Low operating cost.
    I did not negotiate price. I did negotiate financing at 3%.
    After meeting basic requirements, I wanted the features that come standard on Volkswagen e.g. electronic stability control. That meant springing for the maxxed out Fit.
  • Going to be paying about 18k OTD but they originally only offered me 3500 for my '02 GTI which has quite a bit of problems. I kept bugging them until they gave me 6200 for it. I still think I overpaid. I've only paid the 1k deposit because the car was not in stock. Can I still negotiate after I paid the deposit? Even though they gave me a decent deal for my car (which has transmission problems) I paid sticker price and that makes me cringe.
  • Nah, don't worry about it now; you've paid the deposit and they're going to treat it as a done deal. It's always best to strike the deal on the new car and then work on the price of your trade-in. But you got a great deal for your used car, which brings down the OTD to 17k or so, perhaps even less. You saved yourself the hassle of trying to sell your car on your own etc. Enjoy the new car and be happy you got a good deal overall. Don't give it another thought!
  • it's nice to have some reassurance. Thank you

    What the heck is happening here with people paying way too much for the Honda Care warranty? Please do a search for my old posts where I posted my deal. Yes, I bought last year but times are even tougher so you should be able to get a similar deal. I bought below invoice, no trade in, no accessories, nothing to pad the price somewhere else to get a better deal on the warranty. Most of you are getting a decent deal on the car to get screwed on the warranty.

    If you do a search online for HondaCare, just google it, many online Honda dealers, real Honda dealers, are selling the 120K/8year for under $1000. I paid $895 for mine, I had my dealer price match the online price. At $1800 for the warranty, its just cheaper to fix the car yourself. The online dealers are selling real HondaCare, not a 3rd party warranties. Also, you can buy the HondaCare warranty at anytime up to when the regular warranty expires.

    I need to trim my budget. I have an '09 Accord Coupe and an '01 BMW Z3. I'm way upside down in the Accord(8K), but not so much in the Z. I'm looking at the Honda Fit as an alternative to the Z.

    My question is: will a dealer take my '01 Z3 as a trade on a Fit? And, will they roll any negative equity into the Fit? The Z has very low (52K miles) no wrecks,rolls,or floods.

    My ultimate goal is to get down to one vehicle. I'd prefer to trade the Accord Coupe in and sell the Z myself, but again the neg eq is too high.

    Thanks for listening. Appreciate any and all feedback/advice. SP
  • My experience has been that it's best to separate the new car purchase from trying to work with the dealers. After I bought my Fit, I sold off an old car to a private party for a decent sum that I couldn't have got at the dealer. As far as your negative equity, maybe you can cut down to one vehicle before you go for the Fit, and then sell off the remaining vehicle.

    Hey thanks very much for your reply. Great perspective.

    There is so little margin in a Fit that it would ve very diffficult to roll much if any negative equity.

    Wrong car to try to do that!

    I am looking into buying Honda Fit Sport with Navigation and stability/traction control. What would be the best OTD price? Any help/advice is deeply appreciated. Thank you.

    Best,

    One dealer is asking $21,150 OTD price for 2010 Honda Fit Sport Auto with Navigation and Stability control. Could somesone help me to find the best price to pay. Thank you for your help.
  • I don't know if the navigation system is a separate option or not, but I'd strongly advise against buying a built-in navigation system. I bought a top-of-the-line Garmin navigation unit for $200 with a beanbag holder that is superb. I wouldn't waste money on the high prices charged by auto manufacturers, but each to his or her own I guess...

    I got my Fit 6 days ago. New, but with 190 demo miles on it.

    Price $ 14007
    Tax $930
    Title/tag $400
    Dec fee $599

    OTD $16000. (Security/Keyless and Armrest installed at my request).
  • The Nav system in the Fit is a separate option, it's the top of the 3 available models. I totally agree on not buying a built-in Nav system. Nav's are like computers, each year they just get better & cheaper.

    I think it's a much better (and cheaper!) option to go with a Garmin, etc. and get a Pro Clip mount to attach to the dash.
  • $1140 off MSRP on a Fit - given their current high demand - I'd say is a good deal. Congrats!
  • We just paid $16,855 for a '10 Sport today. That is the invoice less the $500 dealer incentive that Honda is giving back to dealers through March 1. The car is still enroute on a ship, but as long as we did the paperwork this weekend, the dealer will get the $500 and pass it along to us.

  • Forgot to say that that price was for the automatic.
