Maybe we can narrow it down a wee bit. I'm in Canada. What country are
you asking about?

In San Antonio Texas Gunn Honda had a Fit Sport Automatic for
$1653. Looks like MSRP to me.

I think you dropped a digit somewhere.

Default Re: Honda Fit Prices

I paid $20,000.00 for my white 2007 Honda Fit Sport on 26 April, 2007.
It was on the showroom floor for about three hours when I purchased it
from Gillman Honda Fort Bend in Richmond (Houston), Texas, U.S.A.
The first Honda Fit sold by the dealer. It was the only Fit available
for purchase.

Details:
15,170.00 Manufacturer's suggested retail price - Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
550.00 Distribution and handling
695.00 Customer protection package (clear coat)
295.00 Window etching
395.00 Front sport grill ( a joke fot this tiny aluminum piece)
99.00 Exhaust finisher (chrome exhaust cover)
395.00 Interior trim (if you can find it)
299.00 Steering wheel cover ( $12.00 at Wal Mart )
-------------
17,898.00 Manufacturer's suggested retail plus unwanted options
715.17 Premium above sticker (Dealer greeeeeeeeeeeeed tax)
-------------
18,613.17 Greeeeeeeedy Dealer price

1,163.32 Sales tax at 6.25% of 18,613.17
50.00 Documentation fee
43.00 Title fee
60.80 License plates
21.75 Inspection fee
5.00 Full Deputy Fee
42.96 Dealer's Inventory Tax
------------
20,000.00 Final gross cost

I will never buy another vehicle from Gillman Honda because I was
required to purchase the "un-wanted" options and required to pay the
above sticker premium (greeeeeed tax). I think they were tooooooooo
greedy. My family currently own five Hondas purchased from this
greeeeeeeeeedy dealer.
-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-
My 2007 Fit has proven to be better than expected.
It is put together like an expensive Swiss watch.

Problem number 1: Honda saved a few scheckles by not installing a heat
guage. I currently have an Oregan Scientific remote thermometer
installed to "observe" the motor temperature.

Problem number 2: The manual 5-speed transmission is geared too low
for me. Under normal driving conditions, I am in fifth gear at forty
miles per hour. This equates to 3,000 revelotion per minute (rpm) at
sixty miles per hour; 4,000 rpm at eighty mph, and 5,000 rpm at 100
mph without a heat guage or any warning before the "Deep Fried buy a
new Honda" light message is displayed.

I plan to purchase a 2008 Honda Fit when they become available. My
2007 Sport model rides toooooooooooooo rough for me because of the low
profile tires and handling package. I prefer my vehicle to preform
like an interstate cruiser. Not like a "bounce" and "grab" the road
vehicle. Good Continental tires all around will solve many of the
harse handling problems. Continental tires have a high coefficient of
friction that greatly reduces the stopping distance.

Regards,
Ern

Surely you mean 2006, if this was the first Fit sold by the dealer.

Cars already have a clearcoat.

aka: Additional Dealer Profit. Not greed tax; supply and demand tax.
Face it: YOU were the one who was greedy. You HAD to have the car.


So you paid $2400 of Additional Dealer Profit.

You have to pay if you want to be greedy.

Dude, you weren't REQUIRED to pay any of it. What makes you think you
were REQUIRED to pay that?

You have total control over the deal: it's called walking with your
money. Just leave, and don't buy the product at that price.

You are a moron.

Do you think the world OWES you any given product you want at the price
YOU think it should be priced at?

I am guessing you mean 2006, since we have not yet reached April 2007.

You were not required to buy anything. You could have either ordered what
you wanted, and wait for it to arrive, or walk away and buy something else.

No concern at all. Your engine will run quite well at those speeds for an
extended period with no heat issues. If the temp gets too warm, the dummy
light will come on in plenty of time. If it comes on, it has nothing to
do with the R's, but rather a problem. Pull over and get the car fixed.

....

I was trying to buy one but it was impossible to get one at a price I
was willing to pay. That's because folks were willing to pay far more.
So I didn't buy it. You're the reason that I couldn't get one even at
dealer cost. Should I be sorry that you're an asshole?
