These are the quotes I received that include destination. Yours are better. I would think they are pretty good.

#68 of 97 EX With Nav

EX Nav - 21,249 + doc 398 = $21,627
Purchased from Matt Ball - Cary Autopark
Also - had priced accessories online - they matched price of accessories, I paid rack rates for installation of anything that required tools (eg mud flaps) but none if it didn't (eg Floor Matts).

Hi, just finalized my purchase of a new 2010 Honda Insight LX from Anderson Honda in Palo Alto, CA.
Overall the experience was good... not great, but good.
Price I paid:
Selling Price $17,794.20
Tire Fee $8.75
Doc. Fee $55.00
Sales Tax 9.25% $1,651.05
DMV (Estimate) $291.00
Sales Guy: Luiz
Very good experience with Luiz. He was patient, answered all my questions, went above and beyond in helping me feel comfortable with my purchase, and didn't play games with the price we agreed upon.
Finance Guy: Sanjay
Very unpleasant experience with Sanjay. He spoke WAY too fast and sold us overpriced extended warranty (returned the next day).
1) "Honda Care" = "extended warranty"
Like everything else "Honda Care" (aka "extended warranty") price is negotiable. I purchased it VERY reluctantly at $2100 for 7 years / 100,000 miles from Sanjay but only after he said I could return it within 60 days. I didn't know anything about it so I wanted to look it up. Returned it the next day.
You can buy extended car warranties from your car insurance and even from your finance company. Both options were cheaper than the Honda option Sanjay sold us.
Sanjay used the "We'll give you your money back!" argument to sell us. Yes, Honda will return your money if you don't use it, but good luck not falling into one of the categories that causes them not to return your money. But, as always, don't take any one person's word for it, just look it up online.
2) Don't buy GAP insurance from the dealer until you've looked up other options. I asked about it from my finance company and it turns out they can't even ask you if you want it because the car company has first dibs. So YOU have to ask for it. Please ask, I'm still researching it but it seems pretty cheap (~$240) for what you get.

Just for people shopping, seems Honda anxious to move 2010 inventory so I picked up Insight EX w/o navigation for $18499 and got KBB plus $300 for my 2002 GMC minivan trade in. Insight did not seemed singled out for discounts, Accords and Civic hybrid also had attractive mark downs.
Dec 15, 2010 (1:45 pm)
Received price quote as follows:
2010 Insight LX MSRP $20550
Upfront price $17785.95 including destination and handling charges
Not including tax and fees.
Above seems a good deal, but am I missing something? Any suggestions or things to watch
Thanks in advance for help.
