    Last month purchased Honda Fit Base (automatic). OTD was 16,200. This is in Florida where taxes are double compared to NC. My experience was overall really good
  • Hi,

    today we were quoted 19.000 for the same car in Broward county,FL!
    Do you mind disclosing the dealer-that would be absolutely awesome.

    Did use their service department for some warranty work and also a oil change. Not a bad shop. Never bought a car from them yet, though we did buy an Olds Cutlass back in 1983 when they carried that brand. Heard they're a bit high on price. Ended up at Hollywood Honda back in '06 when I got my Civic LX.

    2010 Honda Fit SPORT (Silver) AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

    Traded in a beat up 01 Buick Century that ran decent, but had serious hail damage, etc. No dealer offered me more than 1k for the Buick. (153k miles) KBB Trade in Value for "Fair" condition (which is a stretch) = 600 bucks

    14995 + Tax + Title + Liscence (Including trade and all dealer documentation/delivery fees). 15995 actual cost if you consider the value of the trade. I think good deal based on what I am seeing.

    Financed the entire purchase + TTL @ 0.9% for 60 months.

    Payment.... under 300 bones with zero out of pocket for fees, tax, title, licence, destination fees, or documentation fees.

    Want help buying a Mazda Fit? Thinking I could make about 100 bucks a pop for the info and and still save you over a grand compared to what some people are paying for the same vehicle.

  • Hello,
    I recently asked a bunch of dealerships around the Boston area to send me quotes for 2010 Honda Fit Sport Auto (Red) , via Edmunds.com.

    The best price till now is:
    Car Price: 17,155 (400 below invoice)
    Tax 6.25 %: 1072
    Doc Fees: 299
    Registration: 125

    Total: 18,651.

    Is that a good price ? Can I do better or ask for any free options ?

    Thanks

  • After further discussions with the dealer, I am getting a quote for 18,300 OTD.
    Is that good enough ? Not sure if I should get a better bargain nowadays for a 2010 model.

    Thanks

    Really your gonna try to make money off this BS? Give me a break. That info is on here for free.
    And as the last person said what's a mazda fit? hahahahaha
  • I bought my 09 Fit Sport Auto from Honda Gallery in Reading, MA (15min from Boston) for 16,800 including all. Been a great car. Check them out, Honda Boston in Everett didn't want to go lower.
  • Thanks for your reply.
    So is 16,800 for a used 2009 Fit Sport bought recently in 2010 or
    for a new 2009 Fit Sport bought in Aug 2009?

    Just want to do a apple-to-apple comparison. Thanks again!

  • I got an out-the-door price (all taxes, registration included) for $17950 in Northern Virginia. Does this sound like a good deal? Please advise
  • What did you ending up buying it for and where in Northern Virginia?

  • I have an offer from a dealership for a 2010 honda fit sport for $18,600 OTD with .9 percent financing. I live in Georgia. Is this a good deal? Should I wait for the 2011 with the VSA system? Will the 2011 be much higher and without the great interest rate?

    Just bought a 2010 Honda Fit Sport Automatic with 11 miles on the odometer, in Maryland.

    16677.36 (Car and Freight) with wheellocks, floormats, door guard, strip decal?
    222 (Tag)
    100 (Processing)
    1006.64 (MD taxes)

    ----------------------------
    17,250 out the door.

    People, negotiate from OTD price!!!!!!!!!
  • Wefit,

    I live in MD and am close to deciding on a Fit, most likely the Sport Automatic.
    Loved your total price, so I was going to ask if you can share info about the dealership. I have a quote that is a bit higher than what you shared.

    But I am also confused. Your numbers add up to $18,000. Is there some $750 promotion that I am not aware of? Or am I missing something about the $750?

    Thanks.
  • wefitwefit Posts: 7
    Wefit here.

    Yeah your math is correct.

    On paper, the 750 is treated as if it's coming out of my pocket, but the dealership is subsidizing that amount, making it 17250... Seems sketchy, I know.

    Oh yeah. The dealership is Jim Coleman in Clarksville. If you're serious, you should hurry up since there are only 4 Fit Sports left (black, silver, orange, and blue (not tidewater blue)).

    To save you time, I highly encourage you talk to Ravi and say that Victor (me) sent you here. This way the dealership knows exactly how much they need to adjust their pricing to get you to close the sale. I haggled over 2 hours...

    You can charge upto 3k on your CC. Points?

    Hope that helps.
  • Wefit,

    Thanks, your response was very helpful.

    I just drove home in a 2010 Fit Sport with the Nav system that had 13 miles. While I had no interest for the Nav system, I was getting the Fit for my wife, and wanted the traction control. Based on your numbers, I factored in an additional $1,750 for the Nav system, resulting in an OTD price of $19K, which following the wisdom in your signature is where I wanted to be.I spoke a few times with the folks that you mentioned, but their best OTD price was $20,200.

    Another MD dealership in Rockville though determined that this was a fair price, so I got it for the desired OTD price of $19,000. Again, didn't really want the Nav system as my wife's Garmin and certainly my HTC Evo phone more than meets our GPS needs. If they couldn't work out the $19K, I probably would have waited for the 2011 line to see the new price of the Sport with the VSA included.

    So, thanks again.
  • Just bought a 2010 sport Fit for 16,790. I did Like the Fiesta better, but with 0.9% and Fords unwillingness to lower there price forced me to purchase the Fit, I saved 4,000 with the Fit. I did like the Ford's MPG better and the built quality was superior to the Honda
  • ""I did like the Ford's MPG better and the built quality was superior to the Honda"""

    Maybe so, but in 100,000 miles the Honda will be a sure thing- and the Ford will be anything but. Congrats on making the right decision !

    I'm also leaning towards getting a Fit again after my '07 Honda Sport 5speed manual sold for $7k and it has 115k miles. The best part is the car still drives like new.

    Now, imagine what the resale value of the Ford Fiesta 4 1/2 years from now and 115k miles later?

    If I stick to the plan, I can buy 3 Fits and the 4th one is free. ;)
  • """ I can buy 3 Fits and the 4th one is free."""

    I like the way you think ! :shades: I wish this was true though because I'm on my 5th Honda since 2004.

    I'm working my way through the entire Honda line up, having owned 3 Accord's, a FIT for a short time, and now a 2011 CR-Z. My Mom is on her 3rd Accord and my Dad has a Ridgeline.

    The 2012 Civic SI coupe may be my next Honda - or perhaps the Civic hybrid since it's projected fuel economy for the 2012 hybrid model is 50MPG.

    Anyhow - I'm glad you had such great luck with your FIT, although since it's a Honda I wouldn't call it luck ;)

    My Crown Vic has 140K and 12 years on it and still runs better than a new Civic. Not *everything* domestic is junk.
  • sandman_6472sandman_6472 Coral Springs, FLPosts: 2,632
    "Still runs better" which is strictly "your opinion" correct? Just because someone says something doesn't make it correct. What facts is this based on? Am very curious to hear which one it is!

    Um.. Better ride, better, smoother engine, loads more power... Now, true, this is a full size car against a small economy car, but like I said, some domestic vehicles age very well and are not junk. oh - and the only thing that has stopped working is the cruise control.($40 fix but since I never use it...)

  • I just bought a 2010 Fit Sport at Jim Coleman Honda in Clarksville, MD for 17,400 OTD. I should have stuck to my 17,200, i think. But I still think its a decent deal. Thanks Wefit for your post! It helped me a lot.
  • Hi Wefit,
    Thanks for your post it helped me a lot. I started at 17,200 but then went up to 17,400 OTD to end the haggling. Do you still think its a good deal? Did you buy their President's club package?
    Thanks!
  • wefitwefit Posts: 7
    Hey ksmiles75,

    Thanks for the rep. I think your deal is good, but do verify your contract to see if you are actually being billed for the right amount. When I was about to sign my paperwork, I spotted some shady practice where they added 750 addition our closed amount. I pointed that out and they quickly reworked the contract.

    If you were able to get them to throw in some floor mats or trunk cover, then I'd say your deal was great!

    All sales staff walked off angrily as I didn't purchase anything extra. A cheap subcompact car like the Fit is probably not worth buying extra packages for anyway...

    What model year did you get?
