    For $15000, what say you guys? The car is in perfect shape.

    It's difficult to give feedback on used vehicles. There are so many factors to consider. This thread is primarily for new car buyers. For $2K or so more, you could get a new one. But good luck with your decision and purchase.

    >>>I am looking to get a base Fit with armrest, alarm/keyless. My best offer is $17,213. I am in central NJ. How is the market here? How good is this price? <<<

    In NJ, that's not a bad price if it's OTD.

    I just bought a brand new, automatic, 2010 Fit Sport, with fog lights, tinted windows, a spoiler, trunk tray, alloy wheels (not sure if this was standard on the Sports), and underbody kit (whatever that is...). I paid, $16, 118 OTD. That included my TTL, Destination, and $1300 trade in. I think I got an excellent deal! I also got us the 1.99% financing.

    How'd I do??? :) I got it in Frisco, TX. LOVE the car!

    Just test drove the car. I got disappointed. I like the cargo space so much but I don't think I can stand the noise when I hit the gas pad. Is it just me or it is a common problem. Is there s set up or a different way to drive so you won't get that much noise?
  • bbb99bbb99 Posts: 55
    So you got the car for $16,469 before TTL and trade in? That seems pretty darn good to me.

    I guess that's how it works right?

    Price after Trade-in, TTL, and Destination was 16, 118. So, I feel like he really just added what he gave me in trade to the "invoice" price and made it look like he was giving me what I wanted. I felt a little tricked today. Haha. I meant to negotiate price first and even though I thought I was onto his game, he managed to get me excited and work the trade into the deal when I knew better. Those sales people are good. I am wondering if I got the short end of the stick instead of sticking it to them :). Love the car.

    Well you didn't mention what you traded in so hard to really say whether you got a good deal or not.

    I traded in a 1998 Honda Accord that had 105, 000 miles on it. The CV joints needed repair, and the upholstery was hideous. It has two dents in it and lots of scratches. Oh, and we had the car shopped at Carmax last year and they valued it at 1700 then, but ONE CV joint cost 360 for parts and labor.

    Did I still get a good deal?

    Just paid $16,431 before TTL.

    $17,753.08 OTD. I could have haggled off a few hundred extra IMO but I wanted to buy local and get it over with.

    $17,970 - $600 discount = $17,370
    - $1,500 trade in allowance

    $15,800 would be a good price

    Did you pay more for the car?

    OTD is difficult to compare. License, tax, title differ from state to state. OTD is only comparable w/in a state.

    Price for car before TTL and "doc fees" is the best number to use to compare a price paid.

    I had a typo in my initial email. Here is what we paid.

    invoice =15,000
    add ons= 500 (tinted windows, trunk tray, spoiler, wheel locks, underbody stuff)
    TTL= 1388
    dest.= 710
    doc. fees= 180 (i wish i hadn't paid for this)
    trade= 1360
    total= 16,478

    MSRP on our car was 17,200. Now I don't know if I got a good deal or not. :(

    Thanks, Ang

    Well sounds like you paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $17,000 plus the TT&L, minus the trade-in and the average price is $17,639 (doesn't include the $600 incentive) so based on that it's an ok deal so I wouldn't feel bad about the deal.
  • apnepapnep Posts: 15

    Definitely not. Our contract states the total price paid as $17+ after TT&L, destination and all other fees, minus the trade in.

    Thanks, Ang
  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    Sorry, was only trying to help will defer to the experts as to whether you got a good deal or not.
  • apnepapnep Posts: 15
    Alamocity, :)
    I am just obsessing over this darned car purchase. I wasn't really expecting to buy a car this weekend and now I'm just worried we didn't get a good deal because it was all so rushed.

    Thanks, Ang
  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    All I'll add is don't drive yourself crazy worrying about it, just sit back and enjoy your new Fit.
  • apnepapnep Posts: 15
    You are right, Alamocity. :)

    Nice car...pulled up next to one yesterday at a stop light and got a good look. A bit smaller than my Civic, which I love, but really nice especially in the sport model. Can see why people like these...and the Versa. Small enough for any driving situation with good gas mileage.

    So go enjoy it and stop doubting yourself.

    Thank you,Sandman. When hubby got home, he let me drive it! Haha. We took it to the store and I looked back at it as we were walking away. It's a really cute car. Today I was finally able to start enjoying it. It's actually his car, and I still have to drive my van, but I am excited for him.

    Thanks for helping me through my silly obsession. :)
