I have purchased a new Honda Fit!
Shiny. It’s the Sport version. It’s silver — sorry, Storm Silver Metallic — and has a manual transmission. Vroom!
After grumbling about car salespeople, I need to mention the two good ones I ended up dealing with. Bubba Stockton (!) at Jerry Damson Honda of Florence, AL gave me a straight-forward quote over email. And Tom Bendetta of Jerry Damson Honda of Huntsville, AL worked with us for nearly a week. He gave us the information we needed, worked hard to get us the cars we wanted to test-drive, and was helpful without being pushy. When I went to him with Bubba’s below-invoice quote, he matched it, and removed the fees I wanted removed. If you’re looking for a Honda in the Huntsville area, I’d recommend working with Tom.
I’ve been toying with the idea of getting an Alabama specialty plate to support a cause such as saving the Saturn V that’s been decaying in the hot summers for years. If I do that, I can personalize the tag. So, Internet, tell me: what should I put on the tag? Things I will not be putting on there include LOLCAT and DRBOOM.
