#2474 of 2642 Just bought my New Fit Sport Auto on 3/16/10 for 15988 (bay area CA)
Mar 18, 2010 (7:12 am)
Just bought my new silver mist fit sport this week for 15988 from Anderson Honda in Palo Alto. You'd think these guys would be more expensive being in palo alto but the y actually have the best prices I've found. This deal seems to be available regularly if you deal with their internet department, but you won't likely get this deal if you walk into the sales floor.
Sale Price 15988, 55doc, 67reg, 181lic,8.76catire,20smog, ~$17700otd (I live in 9.75%tax area)
I've read other folks notes about this car at 15888 but now their deal is 15988. Pretty sure their internet department prices is 16198 if you miss the special and don't want to wait until the next one. This is for a new 2010 Fit Sport Auto.
By the way, the owner of this dealer actually cares about his business, and replied to an email I sent him with input. He contacted me back directly and met me when I made the transaction- it was awesome.
They may or may not let you use a yelp discount too.
Contact Jack Puls (jpulsandersonsuperstore.com) and if you deal with him, let him know "jondotcom" sent you. He is low pressure and a cool guy.

Sounds like a very good price, in my area the inventory levels are low so naturally the prices here are much higher.

No it's not. I paid $17,7xx OTD no trade-in. I got mine down state but had a similar quote from Planet Honda.

Thanks. Yes the only cheaper deal I've seen in this forum on a new fit sport auto was 15,888 at the same dealer some months back. They seem to keep doing the 15,988 special now, and I'm pretty sure it's 16,188 if you walk in and don't know the special. In the regular (non internet department) I'm pretty sure they some out with ~16,500 ish from what one of the general sales managers said.
The real downside for me was my local sales tax at 9.75%... it's unbelievable.
Anderson Honda in Palo Alto CA rocks.

Well your out the door price isn't much higher than the price of the car here, even the high volume dealers only have a few on hand so in spite of the price they are moving them. Much easier to get a deal on the Accord or Civic.

The best quote I got in the Bay Area using Edmunds was $18,207 otd for a Fit Sport automatic. Base price for car is $16,288. Sounds like there are better deals out there than what I'm getting. I'm going to try Anderson in Pali. Did you have a trade-in? I have a 1999 Corolla with 125k in fair condition to trade.

I didn't have a trade in. What you do is go to andersondirect.com and request a quote from their internet department. They should have a $15988 one on sale or I believe their price was $16,188 if all of the sale ones are gone. Ask for Jack Puls or Gus Stevenson if you call them directly.
I'd recommend just selling your car private party because they are not going to want to take anything with that amount of miles on it.

Several area dealers are adding as much as $1935.00 in dealer installed option to the $!7,970 MSRP of the 2010 Fit Sport Auto. Any experience in dealing with this would be appreciated. I'm afraid my string of below MSRP purchases may come to an end if we move forward with the Fit.
#2482 of 2642 My Fit Sport Navi deal fell through in MA
Mar 25, 2010 (4:36 pm)
On Saturday I signed an offer for a Fit Sport Navi. No haggling - I was willing to pay MSRP (I know - I'm an idiot). I was even flexible on the color - I would have been happy to just get one and be done car shopping. But 3 days later I was shopping the dealerships again because my Honda dealer said they just couldn't get their hands on a Fit Sport Navi. They had warned me on Saturday that there were only 3 to be found in all of New England (!?) but they thought they could grab one for me. Then on Tuesday they admitted that they didn't know when/if another Fit Sport Navi would come their way. So I cooled off a bit, started shopping around again, and I bought a sweet little VW Golf TDI yesterday. My OTD price for the Fit would have been 21,356 (Honda offered me 300 for my trade-in which I turned down) while my OTD for the VW was 22,358 (VW offered me 1500 for the same trade-in and I took it). Plus the new Golf TDI comes with a green car 1300 tax credit. The TDI has a more refined interior, a smooth quiet ride with a lot of torque, heated seats, touch-screen Sirius radio w/ bluetooth, and insane diesel fuel efficiency/longevity (my last VW TDI - the trade-in - got close to 50 mpg overall and piled on 225,000 miles over 9 years). With the tax credit, my new TDI actually ended up costing $298 *LESS* than the Fit. Don't get me wrong - I still like the Fit - but the top of the line Fit MSRP does look way out of line when you see what that money can do elsewhere. So I ended up without a Fit, but I'm very happy with the way it went.

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!
