2018 Fit, How much did you pay OTD?

Excited to buy a 2018 Fit EX-L CVT.

I'm not experienced at buying cars so doing endless research. Most important is price at the moment.

Try Turecar or Edmonds for comparison prices. When I bought my 09, there really wasn't much wiggle room, because Honda didn't make that many Fits (at that time) and it wasn't a high margin vehicle anyway. But one of those sites should give you a starting point at least.

I am also in the market; so far best offer is $1200 off MSRP for a 2018 EX with CVT here in Northern CA. Really like the Honda Sense addition with automatic braking and Adaptive Cruise control for '18.

Curious if others have found better deals for a 2018 FIT?

Doesn't matter what anyone paid. All that matters is what they sell for in your area or how far you're willing to fly/drive to buy for the price you want to pay or what someone else paid. I had to drive over 60 miles from my home to save another $400 from what my local dealers would sell for. Local dealers pricing was their internet price. Something that their local competitors could easily find. All three within 20 miles from my home were exactly the same price. Almost like legal price fixing.

Starting to look through the interwebs and I am only seeing that on average $500 discount off MSRP is obtainable. I see here that someone was quoted $1,200 off. That seems like a REALLY great deal.

If anyone can share pricing that would be great. I am looking to buy this month.
Thanks in advance.

yep, a car is only worth the amount you are willing to pay. if you think you got a good deal, then that's all that matters really.

it is a good idea to check around the internet for savings to see what others are paying to gauge where the market price is in your area though.

ive bought so many new cars that these days i just do the price negotiation while im test driving the car im buying. the sales guy would do backwards calculation and we shake hands before the test drive is even over. savings here and there is definitely nice, but if a car is worth a certain price to me, it's fine if i paid a little more or less vs wat others had paid in my area. buying a car is fun and should be enjoyable.

Kenchan, thanks for the response. Yes, in 2010 I purchased a fit for sticker price. I just told him to cut all the adds. The adds were around $1900 Tint protect package pinstriping etc. They easily took them off the price and it was an easy transaction.

I just purchased a 2017 Passat and gave the honda fit to my oldest.

I am shopping also for a 2018 EX after research I found a $1000 dollar savings buy using my I phone and car play and not add Honda Navigation. Can anyone tell me any other good reason to add Honda Navigation? Is there much difference in price in building and ordering your own fit compared to buying off the lot? I have read that all the paint colors these day do not have many issues with fading with that being said which color do you think would hold up best in hot sunny weather. Can you order the fancy exhaust from Sport model to a FIT EX Model. Thank you

Too much. OTD paid $21,700 for my 2018 Honda Fit EX CVT. Dealership wanted more but I talked them down a bit. Whatever I'm happy I have a car that runs.

It's difficult to compare pricing from one region to another - too many variables at play that are region-specific.

That being said, the best price you'll get is when the dealers are clearing the lots to make room for the new model year. The problem with that strategy is you are buying a car that is already a year old (resale wise) but this would less of an issue if you intend on keeping it for many years.

If I was buying a 2018 right now, I would decide what I want in terms of trim package and extra features and then send an email to dealers in my area saying "This is what I want. What can you do for me?" There is not a lot of wiggle room with Fits but there is some and playing the dealers off each other would likely get you there.
