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

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

    If I send yu a check, will you run and get one for me at that price? I
    could re-sell it here for 10x that... ;-)

    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.

    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.

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

    aka: Additional Dealer Profit.

    Cars already have a clearcoat.

    aka: Additional Dealer Profit.

    aka: Additional Dealer Profit.

    aka: Additional Dealer Profit.

    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?

    I don't know that "asshole" fits. Those people clearly wanted the car
    more than you did. They were willing to spend more on it than you were.
    That's the way capitalism works.

    This is not a problem. You bought the wrong car for yourself.
    It's intended for a younger audience who can appreciate short gearing.
    What makes you think it would ever overheat? It was tested on
    and in other parts of the world for a decade or so.
    The overheating problems would've been known by now.
    If you want tall gearing get an imprezza. That piece of crap
    of mine does a wee bit over 2k rpm at 60mph.
    I'd take the Fit/Civic Si gearing over that on Imprezza anyday.
    Which Continental tires? ContiSportContact 2? I doubt those will.
    LMAO. I always have a kick out of non model specific
    redneck grade discussion

    My 2007 Honda Fit cost $20,000.00 U.S.D. on 26 April 2007 from Gillman
    Honda Fort Bend (southwest of Houston,Texas). The greedy dealer added
    many unwanted options and charged $715.17 above sticker price to round
    up to an even number.

    Do you want details?

    Yes, but then you don't complain that you paid too much.

    Well, that is true. I was talking in general terms. But in this case,
    you are probably right...

    I paid $16,700 (not counting Honda Co. service contract for $900 for 6
    years, and tax, license, interest) for the "higher priced" 2007 CIVIC
    LX. Includes wheel locks and mudflaps and some other little extra I
    forget at the moment.

    You overpaid big time for your Fit. No offense, but you were ignorant,
    to overpay that much. Unless you like giving "charity" to your car
    dealer. You'd have been better off to give the $2000 plus "charity" to
    a bonafide non-profit charity to help people.

    You purchased the "regular" model for $16,700.
    The $20.000.00 was fot the "Sport" model and all the unwannted
    unnecessary options the dreeeedy dealer stuck on.

    Joe LaVigne Guest

    No, he paid 16,700 for a Civic. You overpaid because you wanted to. The
    dealer didn't have a gun to your head. In the end, you were plain stupid,
    and now you are angry with the dealer for it.

    A.Nonimus Guest

    No, I paid $16,700 for the CIVIC LX, not the DX, not the Fit.
    You overpaid. That's okay, just learn from it and next time you buy a
    car, do some homework and don't let the dealer gouge you. You'll feel
    better about it.
