@kmccune , Yeah, you’re right. OUT with the old and IN with the new. I know the Fits sell because I see 'em all over the roads around here. Probably the best I could do is get bids from at least 2 Honda dealers and go with the best one. Before I leave this earth, I want to get me a boat and go out there and look for ‘Chessie’ myself, so to speak, but that’s a few years off at least.
@FoDaddy , Mathematically, I guess you’re right, but I’m already suffering from ‘old f**t syndrome’, where everything looks outrageously overpriced to me because I remember what stuff used to cost back in the day. Inflation is an insidious beast, a cancer on money that erodes its value over time.
“I don’t know if I’d purchase a car with a CVT” I notice a lot of folks on this forum express this sentiment. Problem is, traditional automatic transmissions seem to be being phased out in favor of this technology, and in many instances, the Fit being an excellent example, the manual transmission version seems to exist only on the Honda website, not in the form of an actual physical car that one can buy.
@GeorgeSanJose , Boy, that would be a bummer, huh? You go into the local “Pull-it-yourself” to get a part, and when you come out, somebody’s pulling a part off of YOUR car because they mistook it for one of the wrecks! Some days you just can’t win.
