many just don't really know what is going on. my guy was flat out honest with me that he was not sure what the process was
I went to the dealer took it for a test drive (they had one) and fell INSTANTLY IN LOVE. when you hit the gas IT IS like a motorcycle. it throws you back into the seat as if you just lit a rocket motor.
he ran my credit but was "unsure" how to proceed further. he was going to take a deposit (could not get my card out fast enough) but then said no deposit. said it has to go through honda directly so they can't take a deposit. when the guy who "does" the ev stuff gets in tomorrow (I got their 8pm tonight) he will find out what has to happen next.
how do I get ahold of someone at honda? I REALLY do believe I am "good" for honda in this regard and I am pretty certain they would want to give me one if I could talk to someone.
I get a transportation allowance at work so the funds are assured ($440 a month 110 mile commute 54 one way I can charge at work) since the commute is so long and expensive (I drive around 35,000 to 40,000 miles a year)
I figure the Fit EV could handle around 25,000 of those miles (and with my fuel being free essentially I would probably drive even more !
so I WILL put 75,000 to 100,000 miles on this car in three years. I am hoping this would be "desirable" to honda to have one of the cars tested to this many miles and I can charge at work and EVEN IF I use 110v my work shift is minimum 12 hours so I will always head to work or home from work with a 100% charge
I want this car SO FREAKING BAD!
I just wish I could talk to an actual decision maker to plead my case. I really think once they know my situations (transportation allowance and no problem charging at work) that they will really want to let me lease one !
got to get past the credit check first. my score is 627. not so good.
we shall see.
any suggestions for how I can get ahold of someone at honda?
