Has anyone got wind of the Fit Shuttle (extended version of the Fit) coming to the US. The sales people are totally worthless and looked at me like I was speaking swahili or something. Looks like I'm going to be waiting till the 2012 Philadelphia Auto Show because also the new 2012 CR-V going to be there too.
#4747 of 4751 Honda Fit trade-in/dealer program

The dealership that I purchased my 2010 Honda Fit Sport from has some kind of trade in program because they claim they have high demand for used Fits and Civics, so they are offering to put me in a new Fit with the same or lower monthly payment. I haven't look at the 2012 Fit Sport, but I really love the Fit. Has anyone heard of this trade-in come-on? My car has 10,000 miles on it and I'm in Northern California. The dealer I bought it from had the best price of any dealership in this area, so I was pretty happy with the experience. I wouldnt mind a new car, but do I really need one? probably not.

It's a scam. I get those all the time and so does everyone else. Dealerships contract with a marketing company to send those out to get you in the door to sell a new car and low ball your used car and sell financing. Been going on for years for all makes and models. That marketing is targeted to someone who currently has "new car dreaming" on their mind to get them to the dealership.
The way to save money, and have money in the bank is to buy one reliable car and drive it until the wheels fall off.
I do appreciate wanting a new car and I too look at the new Fits in the lot when I drive by the dealership weekly. But I am saving so much $$ each month on my 2009 base Fit, that I am loving it, so I forget about it.

I agree...it's a big SCAM. Plus when they say your monthly payment will be the same what they don't tell you is that you'll be making the monthly payment for a longer period of time. So you're payments for your 2010 may be done in 3 years, but if trade in and buy new you're paying for the next 5 years.
