Looking to buy a Honda Fit

I am interested in buying a 2008 honda fit, 108,000 kms for $6000. Is this a good deal? Any other cars I should look into? Budget is less than $10,000.

Two years ago(2018) I sold my 2011 Mazda3 GX with 80,000km for $6500 + tax. Good condition, all fluid changed, new brake pads, zero collision.

2008 honda fit, 108,000 kms for $6000 is a rip off.

Prices of compacts have gone up. Uber eats, skip, ride sharing has made em attractive.

You can definetly negotiate. Inspect the car, check previous ownership records etc.

With that budget, you can look at Corolla, Civic, Fit, Elantra, Yaris, etc. Look at the 1.8L Pontiac vibes as well, avoid the 2.4L ones.

Uber must have car 7 years old or less. So 2008 not qualify.

Check VMR for rough price estimate. Look up every Honda Fit with comparable year/mileage in the country via AutoTrader and Kijiji

Then go in indifferent.

If you must buy ASAP make sure car is safetied and all fluids changed.

Other sub-compacts include: Mazda 2, Nissan Versa, Toyota Yaris, Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, and Chevy Bolt.

But the Fit would probably be my choice out of the category. The low km's seem nice. If it's in good condition, been well maintained, and the price is right, I say go for it!
