Also what is the final price (out of the door), and if possible can you give the break-up (at least documentation fee)?
Do you plan to service the car at Delaney, or which is best dealership for service?
I got a EX-L with Navi. Obviously they didn't try to upsale me since I was interested in the loaded vehicle; they did actually try to talk me into not getting the Navi! Ha! Because the demand is so high they weren't willing to budge on the list price ($20,800). I did attempt to try to get them to throw in tires, the polycoating, etc... Didn't bite, though. Ended up having to pay for the polycoating (~$1200 and the mud flaps $155). They did agree to give me Lifetime Inspections free of charge, so that was a slight perk.
Car Cost $20,800 + $790 shipping fee + $155 Mud Flaps + $1284 polycoat + $941 extended warranty($23,970)
+ $1677 sales tax
+ $133 documentation fee
+ $124 License/Registration fee=
TOTAL COST: $25,919.90
I tried my darnest to get a good deal; and I still feel I did for what I got... which is a fully loaded car that has been a DREAM to drive thus far. I mean, I had an amazing experience-- they got me the car in a short time frame... significantly shorter than anyone else could tell me in the Pittsburgh and basically Eastern PA-West VA-MD-Ohio-NY area (I called/contacted 18 dealers looking for a Fit).
I haven't decided what I'm doing servicing wise... My dad is actually a mechanic so for small things I'll probably deal with him; but will probably deal with a dealer for other things... If I'm going up to my parents, Delaney is close to them, but if I'm not planning on going to visit them I need to consider a dealer closer to me (I live in the city). I was really impressed with the sales lady I talked to at North Honda (too bad she was leaving that dealer and going to another) and I have heard good reviews about Valley Honda in Monroeville.
