The Fit is GO!
 
So I went to Orem, UT today to visit a client of ours. I saw on AutoTrader last night that the Honda Dealership in Orem had a Fit in stock. It was only 5 minutes from where I was, so i drove there.

The Fit that was on Autotrader was already gone. Apparently AutoTrader adds the inventory automatically. This particular Fit was pre-ordered and already sold before it even hit the lot.

So I started talking with the salesman, and wouldn'tyou know it, they had a few Fits coming in in a few weeks.

And one of them was a 5 speed S model and it is silver (it's a cool dark silver). The best part about it is that NO ONE has claimed it yet.

Well, no one until I put down a deposit. Now it's claimed. :)

It should be here within 3-4 weeks. If I don't like it I get my deposit back. If I do like it, the Fit is GO!

Now it's time for me to enter the home stretch of my Civic. I might get a new o2 sensor and do everything I can to get this upto 50mpg in the next few weeks so that some lucky person will buy it to be the ultimate commuter car.

How much do you want to sell your Honda for, and what kinda of miles does it have on it? 50mpg sounds pretty good.

If the car fits, buy it. ;)

Eh, it's a work in progress, so it would be a perfect car for someone that doesn't mind working on it. I'm hoping to get $2000 for it. Then again, getting it from here to Illinois could be pricey too.

Excellent Choice!
 
Great choice, my good man.

If it's a work in progress..I'm really not that interested. I need a veh. that's ready to go. I'm not much of a gear head. It would have been a good excuse to take a train west though.

If I knew you better I'd say something pretty mean.

Great to hear Matt. Sometimes things just come together. Maybe this is payback for running a great site about being fiscally responsible. :) You may need to see if fitmpg.com is ready for your autoblog :)
