Default I'm going to cancel the Fit

It's now over two months since I ordered it and I just can't stay in
limbo any longer. I gave the guy a week to get an Orange one and if he
can't then we just cancel it and I put some more money into my 91
Accord. Maybe next year it will be cheaper and easier to get.

I saw one advertised by a fairly local dealer (20 miles away), orange,
used with 100 miles, for more than I was supposed to pay for a new
one. That's just too much.

Did you try negotiating a lower price with that dealer? Tell them what price
your dealer gave you for a new one?

With 100 miles on it, it is still a new vehicle. It's obviously been
test driven. Not a big deal.

Wait a minute here. "New" and "used" are legal terms.

If it's never been titled, it's new. If it's been titled, it's used.

That's it.

Miles don't matter. You can have a 100 mile used car, and you can have a
5000 mile new car (no doubt driven by the dealership owner's daughter).

I was wondering about that. It was clearly stated as "used" and I was
a bit nervous about that. Why would someone return a vehicle after 100
miles? Maybe they discovered that there isn't a bike rack that will
fit it? I've been looking and I can't find one without installing a
trailer hitch. Ha, a trailer hitch on a vehicle with 107 hp!

I also didn't want to end up in a contractual situation of buying a
car while under contract with another dealer so I just let it go by.

have you ever been to europe? over there, cars with a good deal less
power than that tow trailers all the time - maybe not 5 ton boat
trailers, but still useful capacities. they have to change gears on
grades, but they still manage it ok. look at horse power per pound and
compare to a big rig.

Torque is also the bigger factor for towing. It's what gives whatever
you're towing the intitial push, then HP keeps it moving along.

It's most likely for a bike rack. Kudos to Honda.

Well, you're forgetting that in Europe 99% of the drivers don't mind
shifting the
gears themselves. I don't see why would anyone want a 109hp car with an
automatic.
CVT is not offered on Fit or is it?

That's true.

Also true. I just don't consider that a vehicle on the lot with 100
miles on it to be a returned previously purchased vehicle. I took the term
'used' to be a phrase the OP used to describe the vehicle with 100 miles on
its clock.

Also possible.

If a salesman tells me "used," that connotates something very specific
and factors greatly in the price I'm willing to pay.
