We checked out the Highlander, and it had a fair amount of scratches on it, especially on the rear passenger-side door and the front headlight. The leather was very soft and in great shape. Wife drove it and she liked it. The ventilated seats were very nice. Dealer offered $30K OTD for it, including $3.5K for the Traverse.

I'm hoping to check out the MDX tomorrow.

Does the RX have swamp coolers?
I certainly checked them out, but those hold their value VERY well.

I heard the 2019 Traverse is pretty awesome.

It's a good price.

Mostly from myself. You should ban me and then I'd leave with a cliffhanger on what vehicle I buy.

Mofo would start stalking me over in the 2018 Traverse forums.

Yeah I have no idea how people live like that....the amount of psychological stress would be way too much for me. I've only got student loan so far (no car or cc debt) and have 6mo emergency fund set aside. I just did a year end annual review of spending...we're cutting back on eating out/traveling and doing more grocery/cooking in....putting more away into student loan and hope that's paid off soon. Then gonna put more of my money to invest in appreciating assets and get passive income stream going (prolly real estate)....then once steady/secure passive income is flowing THEN time to have some fun and get some cars and gadgets......

Y'all sound like a bunch of poor ass plebs... We're built on debt! The more debt you have, the more successful you are

you didn't dance to put yourself through college like everyone else?

MDX is my vote...absolutely positively...having danced around with other brands, I feel like I confidently say that you can't go wrong with a Honda product.

I agree, the MDX probably would suit him best!!!

That being said, I'd still get a Sorento...

Wife wants to trade it in because it's easier even though we're really going to get fucked on it.

2010 LTZ with every option. Tranmission is slipping, AC is leaking, and needs new engine mount. Worth 6.5k on KBB private sale.

Just tell them it's worth 10K!!! Go down by the hundred only... Be a dick!!!

Seriously, look for good deals, and know (act like) what you're talking about...

They'll surely not appriciate this...

You need to do a better job haggling. You can score more money on your trade, guaranteed. They’re bending you over and you’re taking it without much fight.

Dealership doesn’t know ac is leaking... unless you told them. They probably don’t know about the engine mount either... unless you told them. The transmission they can probably feel if it’s that bad, but, I’d still be fighting tooth and nail.

Just because the shop gave you bill for +$6k to fix the traverse
Doesn't mean it costs $6k to fix it

It probably costs $300 to fix it.
Don't get fucked on trade


I see many '10 Traverses selling in the 10k range
I think that's too much.. figure the dealership will sell it for 8 or 9k at least
Then figure that they want to make their nut and will invest in doing so or send that bitch to auction
Don't give them too much margin. Otherwise your a Class A ninny. $7k or bust.

Holy shit you got raped in the ass without lube on that one. A 2010 Traverse when new would have been $40k ish? So you lost $37000 in 8 years? lol we sold my wife's 2007 Accord with 151k on it for $7k.

That said, I would hold tight on at least $6k if that's the private sale price. They aren't going to sell this thing anyway, it'll go straight to auction, and if they want to move this MDX that has been sitting on the lot for 6 months, they'll cave to $3k extra.

You guys need to chill. That's just what the dealer offered. It's not difficult to raise a trade-in offer from stupid to merely unreasonable.

I checked out the MDX.

It. WAS. PERFECT.

No scratches on the outside that I can't detail out. Tires new. Leather was soft as hell. Drove it and loved it. The dual-source DVD player was awesome as well.

They offered a lot more for the Traverse than other places too. OTD price was cheaper on initial go-around than the Highlander.

Now it's time to lay down the hammer.
