Re: Trade In Value Or Sell Value Of Rl

Good question, but I'm sorta happy I can not answer I checked thru car max as they usually have pricing on used cars/trucks... but they have no ridgelines in thier inventory! Thats the good news...Ridgeline is so good, few must trade them in.
On the other hand, looking for any domestic (used) current year model car.. look at carmax, odds are good you would fine one or more I checked Hummer H2 for grins... they have "3" 2005's in inventory in the chicago market

Re: Trade In Value Or Sell Value Of Rl

It will be interesting to see what happens to trade-in values once a few get traded/sold. Not that I'm looking to sell but I'm a little concerned that the recent dramatic discounting will hurt the value of the Ridgelines sold way back in the beginning (I could buy a Nav-equipped RTL for less than what I paid for my RTL w/moonroof back in March).

Re: Trade In Value Or Sell Value Of Rl

You already know the answer to that question. Couple this with the fact that the 2006 Ridgeline is a low volume/low demand vehicle, and get ready for sticker shock at trade-in time. I would venture to say that it may have the highest depreciation factor of any Honda vehicle ever produced. Honda just plain blew it.

I still don't think they blew it quite as bad as GM, Ford, et. al. How would you like to have paid $35,000 for a vehicle just before they started thier 25%
"family" discounts. You would be lucky to get $20,00 for that vehicle less than a year later!

The object to life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a big smile shouting, "Holy S#*t ...what a ride"!

I don't know if Honda 'blew it' or if they released this vehicle at the wrong time (rising gas proces and deep discounts from the competitors).

When we have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, we are true beginners. Then we can really learn something.

I learned the hard way with 2 Chevys... less than 50% of what I paid. Both were less than 1 year old. 04 Tahoe and 03 Trailblazer... never again!!
