Anyone work at dealership? Honda Fit Sport price margin?

do you guys know Honda Fit Sport's price margin?
the salesman told me he can't give me much discount because there is only $800 margin on the car, I was thinking more like almost $2000.
Is this true or is he lying?
so the MSRP is $19,280, does this mean the dealships are purchasing them for $18,484?

thanks

*edit* also could you tell me the margin for options(like window visors, floor mats, etc)?

the margin for cheaper cars like the fit are tiny, last time I checked the fit sport only made dealerships $500.

The best way to get a deal would be to get them to throw in visors or floor mats with the car.

the markup on most econ boxes are less than a grand

800 sounds about right on a Fit, unless they have "creative" ways of importing cars, which you will never know.

5-8 sounds right. my friend works at honda before, the old gen fits, only made 700 in margin.

get free floor mat, visor, and maybe touch up paint.. you cant really ask for much for a car under 20k now a days in terms of free addons

But it has all the info you seek. You want real info or just hersay on RS?
Two of my friends have used it and was able to negotiate a fair price for their cars.
