Default Has anybody out there bought a Honda Fit?

I was going to buy one - but the dealers here (in the CA Bay Area) are jacking up the prices to $1,000 and even $1,500 above MSRP. So I bought a little used car instead, for now. I'll probably get a used Fit in a couple of years. A base model - manual transmission. If you have one - how is it? Did you pay MSRP or above? How long did it take to get it? Let me know about your Fit and what you like/don't like about it. Thanks

The Fit is getting rave reviews, and like previous Hondas, are going for a premium when first introduced. By comparison, the 1984 Honda Prelude went for $10,500 with A/C, and you couldn't get one at that price, and you had to pay the money to a dealer who put you on a waiting list. I bought the turbo Dodge Colt instead.Buying a new car never makes sense financially. For what you pay for the Fit, you could buy a much nicer 2-3 year old car coming off of a lease agreement that has maybe 45,000 miles (or less). The bank will finance you almost as long as the new car, and you can get a service agreement that will cover you until 100,000 miles. Which do you want -- a new Fit, or a fully-loaded 2 year old lease car with all the goodies and some cash left over?

The Toyota Matrix is a better buy. It has a great track record and holds its value pretty good. It gets about the same mileage as the Fit. If you really want the Fit, wait a year or so until no one wants it anymore.
