Honda Fit Prices Paid and Buying Experiences

  • Sorry to hear that. I had also considered VW tdi also due to their awesome drivetrain and general feel, but I had to go with Honda due to reliability, low maintenance cost, and resale value. Honda replaced the transmission in my Odyssey for free when it was ~8 years old and had 100k miles on it (out of warranty since 36k miles)... I don't know of any other car company that would do that! Enjoy your purchase!

    4 door or 2 door? Sounds like you are going to get better mpg in the golf, maybe it's worth looking into for some of us fit freaks. Is the cost per mile higher on your golf? It just seems like hondas dont need much upkeep, where vw's tend to have more problems. My wife had a jetta and that car was expensive to repair, my honda civic, not so much.
  • 2-door. Can't give you a real cost per mile estimate based on predicted upkeep costs but I was attracted to the Fit because of Honda's reputation for reliability and affordable maintenance. I think Honda wins on that score. A TDI is a complicated sophisticated machine and you have to find a good diesel mechanic or pay premium prices at the dealership to keep it going. So yeah - a VW TDI is probably more expensive to service unless you can do the routine stuff yourself (I don't). On the other hand, the regular gas version of the Golf has a very good reliability record - better than the TDI - so that may be the car that stands up to or surpasses the Fit, especially since the pricing on a gas Golf is more competitive. You don't get the massive cargo space and the seats don't fold down perfectly flat like the Fit (definitely a cool Fit feature) but there's no comparison w.r.t. the quality of the ride and the interior. The Golf is quieter, smoother, rock-solid stable, and the interior is sweet. Plus you have more feature options with the Golf and I'm guessing the overall mpg may be about the same. The VW Golf is definitely a car to look at if you're doing a comparison shop.

    In the meantime, for me, I drive 400-500 miles a week and being able to stop for gas once a week instead of twice a week turns out to be big in my book. Only a TDI or a hybrid can sail past the gas stations and the hybrids are no fun to drive at all. Maybe some day when I stop driving so much I'll take another look at the Fit. It's definitely a great car.
  • Hey,

    When you purchased the car for $15,988, did you also qualify for the 1.9% financing?

    I'm in the Seattle area and none of the dealers want to go below $17,500. I can purchase and have shipped from Palo Alto and still save $1,000.

    Thanks!
  • I had my own financing. You may or may not lose a rebate if you take an incentive finance rate, but that wasn't the case the last time I financed through ahfc.

    If I were you, I'd go to andersondirect.com and get a quote on the FIT, and take a little vacation to come down and get it. Get all the details in writing down to the total out the door and finance rate if you're seriously going to do it.

    Good luck!

    My GF just bought a 2010 honda fit sport AT for 17,400 OTD in western NY. Is this a good deal?

    She is worried that we didnt get a good enough deal. This is in western NY and we paid 17,400 OTD. I think its a decent deal, not the best possible, but respectable.

    you thoughts?

    Your deal seems fine. I've e-mailed a few Honda dealers located here in the SF Bay Area, and I've gotten quotes as low as $16710 (includes destination fee of $710) - $16988 (includes destination fee) for auto and $15,911 - $16,200 for 5-spd. Does this seem a little high? Even Anderson Honda was pretty high.
  • Did you go directly to Anderson's web site www.andersondirect.com ? When I went for a quote there they had the 2010 fit sport auto including destination for $15,988 on special. I was unable to find a better deal than that.
  • Whether or not you got a good deal is hard to determine from the OTD cost due to varying taxes and state fees, and misc fees like doc, destination, etc.

    What was the purchase price of the car? Itemize the fees and taxes so we can tell.

    I got a great deal on mine but all the state fees (9.75%TAX!!!) killed the OTD price (basically the same as yours). Sounds to me like your out the door was less than MSRP, so I guarantee you did better than a lot of folks!
  • fitftw, how much is the dealer offering you in trade? That's a low mileage Civic, have you tried to sell it privately? Is it in good condition?
  • fitftwfitftw Posts: 3
    We didn't go to the dealer yet to ask for a trade. I know before, they just used kbb, and it'd be around 4k. The car's in a really good condition. We barely use it for long driving because we have a second car. We're trying to trade while it still has decent value. I'm hoping to get over 5k for the trade from the dealer. And no, we haven't tried selling it privately.

    I just signed a deal for a white 2010 Honda Fit Sport with all-season floor mats for $18900 OTD and 1.9% financing.

    Vehicle price: $17500 ($500 below MSRP)
    Registration/ 6% tax/ liscence: $1100
    "Dealer fees": $300
    (The cost to finance for 5 years at 1.9% was like $850...so not too bad in my book!)
    All season floor mats: "complimentary"

    I didn't have a trade-in and I don't currently own a car, so I did everything over the phone. I offered $18,900 OTD with all season floor mats and the dealer agreed. There were no Fits on the ground in the Boise area for the longest time, so I am glad to have one! I'm not interested in the hassle of ordering a car from out-of-state. The dealer is getting mine shipped in about 2 weeks from now. Can't wait! :blush:

    Just got a quote from O'hare Honda/Chicago for the Fit Sport for $16,149. The fees, taxes, etc. are as follows:

    Taxes 9.25%
    Destation $710.00
    Doc 154.38
    Plates 120.00
    Cook County 15.00

    Was your base price lower than $16,149?

    Anyone in the Chicago area get a better deal? DETAILS PLEASE.
  • fitftwfitftw Posts: 3
    That's the exact quote I got from them a month ago. And frankly, that was the lowest one I got between the 4 or 5 dealers I contacted.

    I'm looking to get a new Fit but I was hoping to get a few more months out of my car since I just put a lot of work into fixing it. Honda has a special 0.9%/1.9% financing offer right now which the dealer told me isn't offered often on the Fit. Is there a record of past incentives to get an idea of when something like this will come again? Is that a great offer or will that come around every other month?

    I'll put somewhere in the range of 6 or 7k down leaving the loan of ~10k if that's relevant.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    I also made a vist to Ohare Honda earler this month when they were selling hail damaged cars and was quoted $14900+tax, title ect. on an white sport automatic but Schaumburg Honda had the one I wanted, a sport with manual trans and got it for $15800+tx title & doc fees. I think this was a pretty good deal.
    I hope this helps some people

    Bought my Midnight Blackberry Sport (AT) the last week of April. Quote was from their internet department, and was in line with O'Hare Honda's internet quote.

    From Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake, IL:

    "The 2010 Honda Fit Sport automatic, MSRP is $17,970.00 and your no haggle Internet Price is $15,646.00 plus destination, tax, title & license."

    Total paid (including $250.00 of "Dealer Added Options"--Wheel locks, all weather floor mats, and "Protection Package" --sheesh), McHenry/Kane Co. (IL) taxes and new plates, Price Out-the-Door was at $18,253.00.*

    I paid cash, but had the option of 1.9% financing for 36 mos. through the end of April.

    I really like this car!

    Just got a quote from my local dealer on NEW Honda Fit Sport w Navigation for $18 610 + tax and DMV fee. They said NO hidden fees. I'm going Wed night to see it and buy it eventually. Is this a good price???? In my books it is.... I live in NYC.
    I was just negotiating for pre-owned one 2009 with 12k miles, with Navigation, for $17 600. For thousand more, better get new one, no!?
    Either I'm bad shopper, but I wasn't able to find anything like that which runs below 17k. And I'm specific that I want one with navigation.
    Any thoughts/advises!? Greatly appreciated, thanks! :)

    Price it in Central New Jersey and buy from there. You'll save a decent chunk of money, even if you have to pay the slightly higher NY tax.

    Moodguard, what kind of quotes are you getting for a Fit w/ automatic, but without navigation? I'm looking to buy one this weekend, and have been quoted 15,550 by overstock. Good? Is there room to negotiate with overstock typically?

    I just graduated and this will be my first car, so I'm super excited and I would love any advice. Thanks!
  • moodgardmoodgard Posts: 37
    skybaker,

    I don't know anything about overstock. Is the $15,550 inclusive of taxes, title, tags etc? What state are you in? Please give as much details about the car as possible, perhaps I or someone here can offer guidance.
  • junk4usjunk4us Posts: 14
    Just a head's up about the financing.
    I"m going to start looking at fits soon in the NC area
    any advice?
    looks like the silver ones have a higher price premium

    Hi. I live in central NJ. I just purchased a new 2010 Honda Fit Sport. My total out the door price including tax, dealer prep etc is $18,000. I am getting $800 on my old car and transferring my old plates. My car is 13yrs old w/bad engine about to blow. Dealer is throwing in wheel locks. There were only three of this car on the lot. I haven't purchased a new car in years and being a woman I hope I got a new deal. It took time to get them down to this price. I got internet quotes from other dealers and they were all higher. I hope I got a good deal. Can anyone advise ASAP.

    Hi all
    I want to buy a 2010 Honda fit sport in Tallahassee, FL with Automatic transmission and navigation system. What would be the reasonable price for this car before taxes and other standard expenses? Can somebody help me with this please?

    Thanks in advance
  • cwalk1cwalk1 Posts: 13
    I got a quote using TrueCar.com

    2010 fit base with auto:

    $15435 + TTT = $16476.05 OTD. This is eastern NC - I think this is not too bad?
    NC sales tax for vehicles = 3%

    Anyone getting anything similar or lower than this?

    Thank you,
    Conny

    Got an i'net quote for 18171 ($40 over invoice) incl dest and before "accessories and fees". Is that a good price in Virginia (West Broad Honda)? Should I pull trigger? Thanks, Ted. PS -- not yet sure if I can also get 0.9% 60 mo financing.

    I went into a dealership today and was quoted 16,890 + taxes and other fees for a total of 17,560 on a FIT Sport w/ manual transmission and the standard equipment for the model. Taking in consideration that they offered 10,500 for my trade in I think this sounds like a good deal but I have seen lower prices from some others on this site. Any info on other dealerships in Texas that are going to be competitive? I'm looking to buy within a week or so as this particular dealership is waiting for the exact model/color/etc that I'm interested to arrive so I have some time to do some comparisons. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Just bought a Honda FIT base automatic (no additional options) from Sport Honda in Silver Spring, Md. Out-the-door price was $16,853.83 - $200 for my trade in (a '98 Saturn SL1 w/ 152,000 miles on it). The breakdown was:

    14,997.63 base price
    750.00 destination charge
    89.00 processing fee
    938.20 sales tax
    79.00 tags, registration, etc. (we transferred the tags from my trade in)

    The internet sales specialist's price beat the other quotes I received and I appreciated the fact that there weren't any surprises (dealer installed options or miscellaneous fees) when I got to the dealership. He helped me switch my insurance over to the new car and personally transferred the tags from my old vehicle. All in all a pleasant buying experience and I'm happy with my new car and the price I paid. So I would definitely recommend Sport Honda in Silver Spring to anyone in the MD/DC area interested in a Honda FIT.
