#80 of 97 New Insight Base.
Apr 18, 2011 (7:28 am)
I test drove and bought my first hybrid this past Saturday and took advantage of Honda's 0.9 interest rate plus got what I think is an excellent buy on the car. Got a 2011 Crimson Pearl colored base for 17300 plus tax and tags in upstate NY. Pick the car up on Wed. this week! Will post MPG and what I think of the car after driving it for a month or so.

I just purchased a 2011 Honda Insight base model in the San Francisco Bay area. The price was $18,430, with an out the door cost of just over $20,000

Wow, what a differance from what I was able to get my car for (17300) in upstate NY to your price! I guess my sales guy was correct telling me what a great deal he was giving me. So far I am loving this car and averaging 50 MPG according to the gauge in the car. Hope you enjoy yours as well.
#83 of 97 Bait and Switch-Stockton Honda in CA

California consumers BEWARE: I received an email offer from Stockton Honda Internet sales (Molida) offering a"Special Internet Price" for a 2011 Honda Insight for $19,719.00 with the price in RED size 48 font. After 3 phone calls and 3 emails, and 2 hours into a 4 hour drive on my way to the dealer for this "special 48 hour" deal they called and said "Sorry, it was all a mistake. We have to sell it for sticker price." Of course the sweet sales girl fronting the deal sounded innocent and apologized that her sales manager said there was no way they could sell it for this price. My assumption is that they could probably do this because in the fine print at the bottom of the offer was a disclaimer saying they were not responsible for "typographic" errors.
I'd believe it if the same scenario did not happen the last time we drove to buy a truck. We said we'd go to dinner and think about it and they called and said the manager "okayed" the deal.
Is there any reason to trust car dealers when they do this to the public?
#85 of 97 Should I have bought the extra warranty 7yr.80K?

Just got a 2012 base model !
The business manager pushed for me to buy the extra warranty for $967.00 -7year/80.000 miles. His reason (besides the financial gain for him) was that there is a lot of electronics that can go wrong after 3 years.
I declined and, after reading the manuals, it seems to me that there is a lot covered beyond the 3 years, 50,000 miles (in Rhode Island).
Was I right? Also, isn't the purchasing of extra warranty offered before the 3 year limit?
Thank you for the answers
