#2583 of 2634 Fit Sport Auto in Silver Spring, MD. Is this a good price?
Jun 11, 2011 (8:11 pm)
A bit of a background first. My very old Tercel broke down so basically been using bus for a couple of weeks while I researched the best one for my buck. So... I needed a car badly enough and I am happy w/my purchase so far. Didn't try to negotiate much since this car was one of the two left on the lot. The other dealers in the area gave higher quotes or were out of stock.
Sale price - 17600
Freight - 750
Tax, fee & tags - 1417
GAP coverage (I was not sure about this but figured might need it plus got .5% lower interest) - 699
Total = $20,466

Basically you are paying MSRP. Based practically no base fts in the market in W WA & uncetainty when they will be available, that sound like a deal in todays market. Wish I could have found one at that price.

I basically did my research via internet & found none in W WA at the time. The one I found in Skagit County was on the lot that I discovered in a drive by, not on the internet. Perhaps I miss some others on lots by not callng.

Gap coverage is usually not needed unless your down payment is low/none. If you put at least $4000 down, paying for gap coverage is a waste of money.
I also find any additional warranty package a complete ripoff. They would say you get 7 years of coverage but it only means an additional 4 years as your warranty covers 3 years already.
Also, most auto insurers, such as Geico, offers mechanical coverage for new vehicle for a fraction of the price, plus you can elect coverage up to 15 months after you have purchased your new vehicle.
Don't be a sucker buying all these Gap or extra warranty coverage, you are throwing away thousands of dollars to the dealers.

Fit Sport 18200 + doc fee + tax + title = 19600. Good deal?

My gf is from WA ( everett) area too. We have been spending a lot of time quoting around and get frustrated ( my gf wanna get a 2011 sport orange/blue AT) from 2000 over MSRP quote from dealers all around.
At last, I just tell her to come down to Bay Area, CA this july 4th weekend. Get the car and we will bring this new car to a road trip back to WA.
From the quote I get from South Bay dealers, at least they are MSRP/slightly lower than MSRP. GOnna do it this weekend, wish us luck

#2591 of 2634 Used 2011 Honda Fit Sport Navi with 2,000 miles $17,000

I have been doing some looking and talked a dealer down to $17,000 for a used 2011 Honda Fit Sport Navi with 2,000 miles. It would be $18,400 with taxes (7%) and fees. It is in excellent condition and was traded in to get something else at his dealer. What do you think about this?

I think thats definitely worth it if the car runs well and all. I got mine a month ago and its fantastic so far. Just not too good on freeways on long trips. Other than that, great commuter car.
