Can anyone from Canada share their out of the door price for an insight touring? My wife is canadian and we are considering getting the insight from Canada because my ideal combination is the crimson red/black interior; also the exchange rate could potentially save us some money.

That's after all taxes, fees, etc.

They're also offering 2 years of Honda care maintenance.

I just wanted to see what your thoughts were on this price.

Thanks!

If I were you, I'd buy it. Not sure what your state/city is bc it also depends on the taxes etc., but comparing it to MSRP of EX for about 23k, touring OTD price of 28 including an extended warranty of 2 years with honda care sounds awesome. Make sure you pay attention to the honda care terms; 1) total mileage 2) whether it's no deductible or 100 bucks deductible

That's a great price. I ultimately paid <$28,000 for my silver Touring after a $500 trade-in, including NJ taxes (6.625%), registration fees, and dealer fees. The OTD price was slightly higher but a big chunk of the registration fees came back, as I knew they would.

Is that 2 years of Honda Care after the original 3 year/36k warranty expires? They must include mileage terms too.

I just got a email quote for Touring $26,093.00 plus fees in northern CA. Now I'm debating !!!.
The current 2019 Insight model year ends ~6/25/19, so you should be able to get better deals (in theory) as we get closer to that date. Plus if you wait long enough, you could see the 2020 Insight in case there are new features you may want/prefer from it...

Norcal is a tough market. We're never going to get prices as low as elsewhere in the country. It's still a tremendous value to get this car.

Shop your lowest offer around to other Honda dealerships(at least 5) nearby. It doesn't hurt to see what kind of response they will reply back with. You will have a backup and an idea of what is a fair price for the car in your market. Another tip is to ask for the "out the door" price when requesting a quote. It makes comparing prices easier because each dealership can have varying fees that can make the lowest offer end up with the highest total cost.

2019 Touring

Good Morning all. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2019 Touring model. When I left the dealership yesterday I had the vehicle at 24,905 before any TTL etc. That put me at 28,085 out the door including all taxes, fees, etc. I think I am getting a great deal but I am asking for opinions. Also does anyone know how much Honda charges for GAP insurance? I researched and I cant find it at all. Thank you all!

That sounds good to me, but it all kind of depends on what state your in. You’ll want to check out this thread to see what others have paid. https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/121-2019-honda-insight-pricing-dealers-purchasing-ordering/50-official-price-points.html

As far as the price for the Touring, from what I remember, it seems to be near the lowest reported price on the forum, so it's a good price. Have you try getting out the door quotes from multiple dealerships? That's the best way to know you're getting a fair price in your market and helps when negotiating. I have never bought GAP insurance so I don't have any info to give on that.

This short thread also has a few recent prices for the Touring in VA, which seem to be the lowest posted so far (24.7k) - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/121-2019-honda-insight-pricing-dealers-purchasing-ordering/2050-2019-insight-prices-paid.html

Your Touring price is within the range mentioned there, and is right around the MSRP for a lower trim EX. But keep in mind that the 2019 model year for the Insight ends in 7-8 weeks, and deals should get even better closer to Jun/Jul. Maybe you can work this negotiation point further...

We just bought a 2019 Insight Touring at a dealership in Memphis who had four touring models on their lot (3 black & the white orchid pearl with the light interior that I got). Hubby negotiated a great deal with us getting out the door with taxes, licensing, etc. for $1500 less than sticker price. We've purchased Hondas over the years and have never gotten out the door for less than sticker prior to the following year models coming out. We hadn't gone in to buy a car but just to drive the Insight since we had already driven the Nissan Leaf and given up on getting a Model 3 Tesla at a price that made any sense. However, after first driving the EX then driving the Touring version, we fell in love with the Touring model. We didn't really need another car right now since we have a 2017 Ridgeline RTL-E and a GMC truck for hauling construction materials around but decided to see how much we could negotiate on the price. It took us leaving for lunch and coming back later to get an offer within $500 of our offer. We split the difference and got some free oil changes and car washes plus they got us a great rate for a loan from Capital One that was better than Honda Financing was offering on the hybrid cars. I'm so glad we moved forward and got the car. It's fun to drive and looks great also!

My wife is a proud new owner of Touring Insight

First post

Just finalized on a white 2019 brand new Insight Touring for $27k flat, out the door all taxes and fees covered. All I am required to do is get plates. This was from a dealer in Alabama. This was their last 2019 and the finance guy stated they sell very few Insights. We live in truck country.

We opted out of any additional warranties or add-on. Not sure if I will regret but I read somewhere online here, put the money away that they would charge for the ext warranty to take care of unforeseen expenses.

Hoping the car lives up to the mileage claims. My wife is not heavy footed. Hopefully she can exceed the EPA numbers.

This gives others an idea on a baseline for a model end of year price point. 2020 models have already arrived at other dealers near us.

Thanks for sharing the detail, and congrats to you both on the new car.

You're right that one of the schools of thought on warranties is to save the difference and use it for future repairs. The other philosophy is to buy the coverage. :)

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your wife's new car! You've until your limited 3 year/36k warranty is close to running out to decide if you want Honda Care. If you buy it before 6,000 miles you get it at a lower price. There's a handful of online Honda Care dealers that sell them in bulk that offer better prices vs your local dealership. Check out this post of mine in the Honda Care thread for pricing. https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/121-2019-honda-insight-pricing-dealers-purchasing-ordering/230-honda-care-protection-5.html#post24492

Feel free to ask the community here any questions you guys have about the car. :smile:

Paid $24,600 base price, so $26,730 OTD with registration and taxes (and wheel locks) for my black 2019 Touring in Boston, no trade no financing. That was Veteran's day. I think they were quite desperate, they had two Touring on the lot, one was there for 13 months and the other one for 11 months. Only problem is there were some scratches but they mostly took care of it.

Another dealer offered me $26,500 before taxes and fees and told me other dealers with better prices are lying and I would not qualify for their quote :grin::grin::grin: ... he left my wife and I without saying goodbye and sent me the manager to kick me out...
