I'm sure glad that I'm not in the market - paying above MSRP used to be unheard of.....

I got my 2019 for $3k under MSRP in 2018.

Good luck to you (y)
True...but it's not so bad when you get $3K+ more than you paid for your trade-in 😀

We purchased our 2019 RTL May of 2019 for $3,500 under MSRP

A 2022 RTL MSRP is $8,000 more than our 2019 RTL

Subtract your $3,000 and that new Ridgeline is still going to cost $5,000 more.

I think your math is off Bill

So, based on my research, I have found the following. And based on this, as I expected, your analysis is way off! A 2022 RTL-E is $2125 more than a 2019 RTL-E ;)

OK, Your data was different than mine, so let's go to using our reality where our 2019 RTL cost us $32,500..........................
Tire Automotive parking light Wheel Vehicle Automotive side marker light


..............using the above information, $42,000 - $32,500 = $9,500 - the extra $3,000 and the total now comes to $6,500. Rationalize things all you want but it still going to cost significantly more to trade in our vehicle to purchase a new one.

Not sure I am following your logic. If a 2022 RTL-E is $44,045, and the same spec'd 2019 was $41,920, then the delta between the two is $2125 as I stated above. If invoice on the 2022 RTL-E is around $2500-$3000 less than MSRP, then my getting $3000 more than I paid for my trade is the same as me paying invoice for the 2022 RTL-E. You mention a price of $32,500. You could NEVER buy a RTL-E in 2019 for $32,500 so why are we comparing a 2022 RTL-E to a vehicle that cost $32,500???

Now, I must say, I think I am a pretty smart guy and run a very large successful business. However, I can't understand for the life of me where you keep coming up with your numbers??? I am not trying to rationalize anything other than I paid about invoice for my 2022 and yes, I understand that that the retail pricing from 2019 has gone up in 4 model years by $2125.

What am I missing Bill😳

He doesn't have an RTL-E, just an RTL. Since they have made the "driver nannies" standard on the RTL since he got his, the MSRP has gone up a lot.

I get that. But, he keeps referring to RTL pricing when I bought an RTL-E. I, for one, would never buy a vehicle without the "driver nannies" as the world has changed dramatically and every little bit helps regardless of how good a driver you think you are. Yes, the MSRP has gone up. but only by a few thousand dollars to cover the additional standard features added. You also get more for your dollar as well. 2019 was a VERY different buying time. I was buying vehicles for $2K+ UNDER INVOICE back them. Those times are gone...at least for now. My deal was very solid for these strange times. What more I paid for the RL by paying MSRP I more than made up for with my trade so you can say I "broke even" and then some. Where he is getting that I am out $6500 is well beyond meo_O

I admit that I may be missing it, securityguy, but I am seeing no mention of you referring to an RTL-E in your original post? :unsure:

I get that.
Hee hee, you obviously do not, but that is OK. git16vman, thank you for trying to help securityman to understand! 😏
