Thinking of buying a Fit: Sold my tsx planning on trading in the s2000

Hey guys,

I've had my eye on this car for a while, all my friends think I'm crazy for selling both my rides... but with the new condo and recent engagement I'm willing to make some sacrifices :p

I leased a 07 Civic LX for the finace and plan on getting a Fit... I think now would be the time to sell the S2000 since the dealer is offering a very good price for me.

One question is, how much is everyone paying for this? They told me straight out that it'll be really hard to get any discount under MSRP. My dealer told me that if they sold it at invoice they'd only make $400 so there's no margin to work with. I'm really digging the car but it's honestly not worth $17,000 for the car. I'll keep people updated on the progress :) Maybe one day this forum can be my new home (member on Acurazine and S2ki).

The S2000


The TSX

I think even at MSRP, the Fit is a good deal. Considering the huge demand for the car, it's a wonder they don't charge a mark up for it.

I just hate paying list price for any car when I got the TSX dealers were charging MSRP for that and I shopped for a good 3 months until I broke a negotiation for only $500 over invoice ($1500 under MSRP).

I'm thinking if they give me a Fit Sport 5AT for $15,600 I'll take it. But we'll see how my relationship with this dealership will work out.

$15600 is like almost $400 below invoice. Good luck on getting that deal. If you can get it at MSRP grab it. If you can save 1 or 200 off MSRP you got a awesome deal.

Well I was pulling pricing off edmunds and the car runs $15,300 some after invoice w/o destination. I guess I'm not used to trying to price something that's this short on stock.

Do you think the dealer with throw in incentives after 1 year?

I have no Idea if Honda will do a Incentive. The civics still dont even have any incentive. They had a special rate for a month but thats about it. So who knows.
