I hear a lot of people here saying wait for the magic VIN of 10,000 before buying, but there are 9,999 of us who didn't wait. Why? My reasoning is my 08 G1 RTL has 150,000 miles on it. I'll be needing new tires in about 3 months ($1000), brakes by next inspection ($400), A13 service due now ($75), PA state inspection ($100), and a new wining noise I think coming from the transmission ($1000??) and new PA registration ($85) that comes to at least $2600 I would be spending and not increasing my trade in value. So for me it was kind of a no brainer, besides Honda made me wait so long for the G2 to come out that helped with the push. I pulled the trigger and ordered a BE at $550.00 off of list. Hope to have my sweaty little hands on it by the 3rd week of August.
