#47 of 97 Insight EX w/Navi and dealer addon leather
Feb 04, 2010 (11:38 am)
I think I negotiated a decent deal. MSRP of 25,700. Cost of car 23519.28. I did a lease for 279.79 - out the door $1532.79 (pretty high I think for just 1st month and dealer fees/mv costs. There is no tax on a hybrid in CT.
What do you think? I have two days to change my mind.

"MSRP of 25,700"
What? The most expensive Insight you can buy has an MSRP of $23,810 including the destination charge.

It has heated leather seats. It's nice. The price is now 23,519. We are still 'discussing' this acq fee. I don't think I should have to pay it. Honda's website says there is no acq fee for this lease deal. We'll see.
#51 of 97 Insight EX w/XM NO Navi $21,500?

So is $21,500 + ~300 "admin fee" a good price? On top of this add taxes, tags, registration. I don't understand the administration fee; never heard of this before. Why don't they just say Junk fee which equal added profit.

Well $22,010 is the MSRP with destination and invoice is $20,808. There's $750 dealer cash at the moment. If it were me, I'd try an invoice plus $300 offer which would work out at;
$20808 - $750 + $300 = $20358.
As you say, the $300 admin fee is just added profit.

All Honda leases have $595 acquisition fee..
The advertisement on the website may have had it included in the payment...

Yeah, I had to pay the fee. The lease deal turned out ok. I basically got the leather package for almost nothing. They priced the EX with nav at 22600. Payment is $279.00 If I got one without leather it would have saved me $20.00 a month (720.00) Not worth it to me.
#56 of 97 2010 Insight EX w/XM $20,200
Feb 10, 2010 (3:58 pm)
Just picked up my Insight EX w/XM, $20,200 (pre-taxes,gov't mandatory fees & tags). So far content, always stressful buying car even though all the negotiation via email was a no drama, dispassionate experience. I sense from Honda due to Toyota's recent recalls, they feel they have an advantage. However, they STILL are not offering special financing on the Insight or any other consumer incentives. I thought February was usually a bleak month for car sales? Well, I'm happy with my price, especially since it included floor carpets/mats, cargo cover, tank of fuel and of course XM radio installed.
