Question Looking to buy a 2010 Fit Sport with Nav in Orange Revolution Metallic in the L.A.!

Hi
I keep getting different responses to my quest to find a 2010 Fit Sport with Nav AT in Orange Revolution Metallic in the Los Angeles area. Some say they are not being made yet.. others say I have to wait a few weeks, others say they "are working on it". Can someone give me the real facts on this car!!

I would love to get one ASAP.

Barbara Ramp
PS: I would like a few accessories: cargo tray, all weather mats, and center armrest (but would wait for these if it takes too long to get)

Thanks for your opinion, canuck. Now I would like to actually get an answer to my question. Anyone out there know if this car is being made yet? Some dealers say no, some say soon...??

its being made, don't forget, its made in Japan, shipping time needs to be added as well.
You won't see many 2010 fits until January to March at dealers, depends on what part of the country you're from
In canada, there's only a few 09 fits left, 2010 wont be here until January-March
these cars are hard to get, they aren't like civics, dime a dozen!

I was told they are assembled at Honda in Alabama and Ohio. Just got a response from a dealer that said So Cal wont get them until Mid December. Not too long a wait.

I will throw in my two cents and try not to be as rude as canuck. I am in the process of buying a 2010 Fit Sport in Orange Revolution Metallic. The car is scheduled to be delivered in a couple days. The only difference between my car and the car you are searching for is that mine does not have the navigation package. The car was not special ordered and is being transported from a dealer in Portland, OR. Maybe the navigation package is causing the delay?

Based on my experience hunting down a Blackberry Pearl it seems that your best bet is to check ALL the dealers in your area to see if they have any slated to come in already. Orange and Blackberry are not terribly popular - I've only seen one orange out on the road and no Blackberries. Dealers quoted me a two month wait to special order the darn thing.

As canuck said, the very first 2010s are just now starting to make it here. Mine was built 10/23 and here it is almost a month later and my dealer has no update on its VIN or ETA. Either way you look at it, you're in for a wait

And, if I were leasing the car or knew that I'd only have it a few years, I'd for sure rock the orange I opted for the Blackberry because it'll still be "normal" ten years down the line

Thank you Shellebelle and Mike for your courteous responses. I think the Nav System is holding things up. I may just go for the Sport non nav package if the delay is much longer. Shelle, I like the Blackberry too. But being not quite "normal" is fine by me even in the long run. I am so tired of seeing black, white and silver cars everywhere. Being an artist, I find energy in COLOR.

lmao, who did you order the 2010 blackberry fit from? that color is discontinued in 2010....you will be waiting a long time my friend.
sorry not a fan of the Orange, your Navi should not be holding up anything. As I said, order it, navigation on a fit is rare and i would imagine a special order. maybe 1 out of 20 fits if that Have Navi.
The coolest color on a FIT i would say is the blue pearl sensation, looks awesome on the 2009,2010 FIT

So then explain to me why it's the first color that pops up when looking at the 2010 Colors webpage AND it's in the 2010 brochure...

I think the 2010s still include Blackberry Pearl. My wife and I looked all over for a 2009 Blackberry Pearl and finally found one after three weeks. One dealer told us they would have a 2010 Blackberry Pearl Sport in the beginning of December.

read this website, maybe only in Canada its discontinued, but I doubt it since the car is manufactured in Japan.

2010 Honda Fit Buyer's Guide - Carpages.ca

anyways, as far as I know..blackberry pearl was discontinued as it was a very pool seller on the Honda Fit.

I will agree that is was a poor seller - the only one I've seen was a 2009 at last year's auto show.

if you're looking for a blackpearl, Sport loaded with Navi and features, this one looks like a pretty sweet deal on ebay

Good luck getting the color you want! It's worth it!
