Here is my newest car that I just purchased today from Martin Honda near me. I was there for a couple of hours this morning bargaining as much as I could to get it lower and saved myself probably about $1000. Blue is one of my favorite colors and love all the safety features they have and is nice and cozy. Got to test drive it and fell in love with it quickly. Plenty of storage space in the back. I plan on adding accessories to it as I go along. What do you think of my new car? Do you like or dislike the color?

Sweet buddy. I hope you take nice care of it and enjoy it. Some day I'd like to get one but I think something's needs to change before that point. :) The colour looks fine to me. ~Joey

I am sure you will get a new vehicle at some point and be able to enjoy it. Hopefully when you do get a new one the gas prices will be lower and maybe the car costs wlll be lower too.

It is a very beautiful car and am enjoying driving it around. It was not too expensive compared to other cars out there and got it financed. I can not afford to pay it off so I had to get a loan. I have mortgage and other expenses to pay as well. LOL It stinks having payments again but it is nice having a new car and not having to deal with repair problems frequently.

I am loving my new car and yes the seats are soft. I attached a picture of my seats to another comment. My seats are black covered and are soft. The ride is smooth and am enjoying the car very much.

Wow. That looks like a nice car. You made a good decision since Honda is a fuel efficient vehicle. What kind of gas milage does it get? Another good thing is that Honda car don't depreciate as fast as other brands. Good luck. Lloyd

I definitely think I made a good decision with getting a Honda and this model. It gets 38 miles on the highway and 31 in the city, which is great for me since most of my driving is on the highway to work and to visit my parents. It also has great safety features and security features. I only got $500 for my 93 Saturn so I was disappointed in that.

I also would have been disappointed with only receiving $500 for you 93 saturn. Sounds like you might have made out better selling it on your own. Don't worry though. You have a nice car now that won't depreciate like the Saturn. Take care. Lloyd

Thank you for the compliments as it was a little over $15,000. Of course, I had to bargain to get it down plus traded in my 93 Saturn to help get it. It is very smooth and has a lot of room inside. It gets good gas mileage as well.

Is this Honda's hybrid car? Or does Honda even have a hybrid yet. I am not that into cars..... but I have been meaning to learn more about hybrids.

It is not a hybrid vehicle at all but it does get good gas mileage. It gets 38 miles on the highway and 31 in the city, which is way better than my Saturn. Honda does have Acoord Hybrids as well as Civic Hybrids.

The car cost me a total of $15,450 after taxes and tags and stuff. I had to do some bargaining and also traded in my 93 saturn to bring it down a bit. Otherwise it would have cost around $16,000. The top speed of this car is 140mph which I will never drive that fast. They have two models of the Honda Fit, the Base Model (one that I have) and the Sport Model, which costs more.

Blue happens to be my favorite color so i love the color of your new car. Honestly, the car itself is oddly shaped but then again I have never seen a car like it before, so I don't mean that in a bad way. Its good that you really like it and are comfortable with it. Congrats!

Blue is my second favorite color so that is why I picked it. Red is my favorite color but not on a car. This was the perfect blue for me and enjoy driving it so far. It feels very nice. It is very roomy and comfy inside.

Congratulations on getting a new car. It looks like a cool peppy little car. I'm personally not into this type of blue, but it looks nice on your Honda.

I am enjoying my new car very much as it feels really nice and is very comfortable and has nice features in it. It is really sharp and drove one of my coworkers home after work yesterday. It is peppy and gas efficient and has nice safety and security features.

I love the color! What a beautiful color. I think its exciting you went and got a car all by yourself. I couldn't ever have done that, so I am so happy for you! I bet its just thrilling to know that car is yours and you did all the leg work! BIG congrats!

I was surprised that I was able to do it by myself as well as I am sucker for anything and easy to talk into things. I worked the salesperson hard to get the price down as much as possible. I love the color too and my parents love it and my neighbors love it. Hopefully this car will last a long time.

Wow, that's really cute and I love the color!!! That is a great blue! I drive the mom-type minivan, blah!! Hubby is getting a new (well not brand new-new to him) car in March or April. He's decided on a Jeep Wrangler for it's small size, and 4WD and being able to take the top off in the summer. lol. If there was a blue like that I would insist on it!

It is the perfect blue for any type of car I feel. I love blue and could not have asked for a better car or colored car. I went for a gas efficient car with lots of safety features, which is necessary these days with all the maniac drivers out there.

It is a very cute car and everyone that I have shown it too so far loves it a lot and love the color. I am sure you will be able to get a new or newer car in the near future.

I'm looking for the day when I can purchase a white Buick but that's just a dream yet. I'm honestly not a big fan of blue anything, but I did rate the picture as a + and I did it honestly as to how I felt about the color because that was what you had asked that we tell you what we thought about the color. It is honestly one of the nicest shades of blue I have seen and I am very happy for you. With the price of gas on the rise I'm thinking this little Honda should provide you with some pretty good gas milage. From the photo I have the impression it is a fairly roomy car and yet compact. I think you'll do well with this car... Good for you... Take Care and Drive Safely !!!

I do love this shade of blue as it is really sharp. The inside of the car is very roomy and plenty of room for storage. It felt wonderful test driving it yesterday before I bought it and even better driving home with it. It gets very good gas mileage (38 highway, 31 city). I definitely will be careful driving it.

I will definitely have fun driving it and most definitely will be careful. It feels really nice driving it around and am getting familiar with the controls and design. I will have to take more pictures of the inside of it to show others who may be interested in buying a car like this one.

I am glad that you like my new car as I love it as well. I love the color and the interior is nice and very comfortable. I may sleep in my car one night. LOL I still think I got an unfair deal on the car but it was too good to pass up. They are definitely good cars and very reliable.
