I tested a Touring this morning. For an EX They offered 16k for my car, 6% interest, zero down, $475/month for 72 months (31000 for EX).I will be sure to share my thoughts on the CR-V Hybrid when I get it, hopefully before the end of March. It was a chore to find a dealer who was getting any of them in Touring trim (or any at all) and wouldn't charge above sticker. It's not like this is a limited edition trim level or exotic vehicle.... A little frustrating to me but I guess it's the business.
It took some work to get them to give me what I felt I deserved on my trade. I am just shy of 26,000 miles and have no cosmetic or mechanical issues. No dings, dents, scrapes, or scratches, and interior is spotless. I felt it was in like new condition and I wanted the trade in price to reflect that. It took several hours and lots of discussion but I finally got to where I wanted to be and almost broke even on the car.... lost less than a $1,000 vs what I owed on it and I can live with that. I hate buying cars, I don't like all the games and all the run around... It's a hassle. I'm just relieved that it's over with and that it worked out in my favor.
It was a really hard decision as I was and still am REALLY happy with my Insight! It's one of the nicest cars I've ever had and it has done everything I asked it to do and expected out of it, sad to see it go!
If you know anyone looking for a spare tire and jack kit for the insight, or a civic for that matter, let me know!
Might keep the Honda OEM all weather mats out of it too if someone is interested in those.
I was happy with the power. We went up a mountain and it didn’t moan and groan and I barely needed to step on the gas. It was curvy so I was only able to go about 28 mph. It handled curves well and loved the power seats. I didn’t even need my pillow to see.
