Almost exactly 2 years ago we paid $26,000 for my wife’s new Honda CRV . She had it in for a free oil change and they offered her $21,000 for the current car towards a new one. I thought $5,000 off of a 2 year old car, there’s got to be a hook. I thought the hook would be that they would inspect her car and say they couldn’t give us that much because of this or that. We set up and appointment and checked them out.
The options she wants puts it at a little over $27,000. Without us asking they gave us $1400 off because they said they knew we wouldn’t agree to sticker. Honda corporate is giving us an additional $500 as a loyalty discount. We are haggling over a few hundred more dollars as they check the area for the color and options my wife wants. We might get this done this week.
Bottom line is I thought the current car would have lost a lot more than $5,000 in two years. We check the Kelly Blue Book and used car websites and it seems to be a decent deal for us.
