Default Will my Fit actually arrive?

I found a dealer willing to sell it at MSRP. He didn't even try to
sell me the add-on stuff. So I ordered the sport model and now I have
to wait - how long wasn't specified. I suppose I will get it but how
long is another matter.

This may be their ploy. I paid initial deposit for the 2006 Civic
because dealer agreed to sell it at just a little over Invoice price. I
kept waiting for it to come. Never got it. Finally took the deposit
back and bought a used 2000 Civic.

I think what dealers are doing is they are promising the customers to
sell the car but then are selling it to the highest bidder. So
basically if I walk in there and promise to pay more than MSRP than
they will sell it to me.........
Anyways good luck with yout Fit....

I ordered mine in April (22nd I think). Got it in June - about 7 weeks.
Well worth the wait.

I ended up with a cost of $16,520, plus $1383 in sales tax. Ouch. So
$18,000 for a Fit. It's end of the year time though, I could have
gotten a Civic for $2000 more, but I think I like this better than the
Civic. It works for me because I rarely carry anyone in the back seat.

<snort> You could have gotten a Civic for $2000 LESS.

Sucker.

I haven't seen anything near that in New York. Maybe elsewhere.

I guess it depends on what you want. Carrying five adults isn't
something that I normally do, however I often put a bike in the
backseat. I have an Accord (91) now, and it's a bit of a squeeze to
get the bike back there. Plus I have wonderful greyish stains of chain
grease on the back seat. I took a look at the current Civic; I might
be able to get the bike in there, but it would have been tough. And
the dealer would have been pissed at the grease.

Plus the Fit is fun to drive. I took one on a test drive and I really
liked it. Plus, you're up pretty high, which is not the case in the
Civic nor other sedans. It's getting hard to see over a lot of the
vehicles on the road. Without getting an SUV, which I never would, the
Fit is next best.

Parking is a problem where I live. I'm going to be able to get into
spots that I couldn't in a Civic. As they say in the credit card ad,
priceless.

Another post mentions an Accord for around the same price. I haven't
seen any, but it would have been tough to take the Fit over an Accord.
But not a Civic.

The Civic LXs I have seen on the lot of our local Honda dealer sell for
about that. 16k will buy a lot of car if you look for something a little
used -- like a very low mileage Accord or a BMW 850i with a V12 if you
something a little sporty.

Using your logic, my home in the country is roughly the same as down town
Chicago. If he wants a Fit, & it meets his needs, why get a used car that
doesn't?
