that is strange...hard to believe the dealers went out of business with brand new trucks on the lot?
Dealers will often do and say anything they can to make a sale. We called a Honda Dealer and had them tell us they were the only ones with RLs in stock, despite being within an hours drive of 12 other dealerships with RLs on the lot... while we were actually sitting in the car at the next closest dealer looking at four RLs... If we were someone who is a sucker for sales people, didn't have a smart phone or do any research, they may have believed that dealer.I guess, but it seems a little like pricing your gas at $5.00 a gallon when the station across the street is selling it for $3.00 a gallon.
Maybe a dealership with no one else around could get away with it, but I just went on google maps and counted. There are 30 Honda dealerships within 30 miles, although a sucker is born every minute.
I don't understand why a title was issued. You can transfer vehicles from dealership to dealership with the certificate of origin. It is the first owner that titles the car. My RL was sent to a Honda dealer in St Joseph MO, then transferred to the dealership in St Louis. When we purchased it we were given the certificate of origin that we used to title it.Actually as I look at it closer I don't think they did. Here is what carfax says:
RTL-E -- 6/17/16 offered for sale by Schomp BMW, Highland Park, CO. 11/2/16 title issued in Torrence, CA. 1/9/17 sold at auction. 1/18/17 offered for sale by local dealer. It had 13 miles on it when sold at auction.
RTL-T -- 6/23/17 offered for sale by Planet Automotive, Golden, CO. 10/29/16 vehicle sold. 11/17/16 title issued in Torrence, CA. 12/26/16 sold at auction. 1/6/17 offered for sale by local dealer. It had 10 miles on it when sold at auction.
RTL-T -- 6/17/16 offered for sale by Honda of Greeley, Greeley, CO. 10/27/16 title issued in Torrence, CA. 12/26/16 sold at auction. 1/21/17 offered for sale by local dealer. It had 19 miles when sold at auction.
RTL-T -- 9/27/16 title issued in Torrence, CA (No listing of original dealer). 12/26/16 sold at auction. 1/6/17 offered for sale by local dealer. It had 14 miles on it when sold at auction.
I do wonder what happened to cause that, but the stranger mystery is why they are asking $43,980 for the RTL-E and $39,980 for the RTL-Ts.
