2018 honda fit sport for sale courtenay duncan bcIf you’re in the market for a new or preowned vehicle in Duncan or Comox Valley, BC, you’ve come to the right place. Car buying can be tough for women for a variety of reasons. We are trained to believe that we know less about the auto industry and how things work under the hood. Many people, men and other ladies alike, believe this, as well. Age is also a factor. If you are both young and female, walking into a dealership is often very intimidating.

I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t need to be. Here are several tips for ensuring a pleasant and productive car-buying experience.


1. Do your research. Don’t expect to stroll into a dealership with limited background information and walk away with a fantastic deal on your next vehicle. You’ll need to arm yourself with specs and prices. It pays to know how much people are paying in your area for the cars you’re looking at.

2. Expect respect. Island Honda is one of many dealerships whose sales staff are courteous and respectful, no matter who you are. If you have experienced less than this anywhere in the past, don’t go back. It’s that simple.

3. Take as long as you need. I once took a guided test drive that was essentially only around the block. Make sure the salesperson you are working with knows about your commute and the type of driving you’re used to so you can mimic it while out on the road.

Ready to stop in for a test drive? The 2018 Honda Fit Sport is a fantastic vehicle just begging to be taken out for a spin. Hurry in today!
