It was fun while it lasted. I just traded in my car for a CLA. For those wondering how the car retains value I got $21k for my Accord EX in excellent condition with just 3550 miles in almost a year.

I'll be around if anyone has any questions.

such low miles on a car that's 1 year old

i would add probably 2k on top of the traded in value cuz we know the dealer would cut you short

congrats. sporty looking car, but i'm wondering if it will ultimately disappoint. still at least $5,000 more and i'm sure there will be some features from the accord you might miss (e.g., interior space).

but yea, please post some photos and include a review in comparison to the accord. would be curious to know.

Trading a car after 1 year to move to a $30k 2.0L engine. Fools and their money...

At least it's a turbocharged 2.0 with 208 hp 258 tq
See those torque numbers? *Ahem* HONDA >=(

You would think MB would be ahead of Hyundai's 2.0T implementation given AMG's penache for ridiculous power figures (trickle down), but 208hp/258tq vs 271/278tq isn't even close.

Yup! Even an econobox 08 Cobalt SS made 260hp with a 2.0T and broke class records at the Nürburgring.

I went with a friend too the dealer too test drive one..it's for him,not me..but he wanted my opinion so I drove it too..I think the car has some serious turbo lag:thumbsdow....the mpg numbers were impressive tho..27/38..the car is very sharp looking I'm person...interior space is soso..u get a stripped down car for that 29995 that they keep pushing.lol. And it's actually 30825 with the destination..they had about 8 of them in stock..prices varied..the highest priced one that I saw there was 38 and change..the one we drove had the pana roof..sport and premium package..wheel well space is pretty big..car can def take a set of 20s with no problem:lmao:..a base car lease was 2300 out of pocket and 389 monthly and a loaded car was same money outta pocket and 425 a month..that's what they quoted my friend..the sales guy sad the cla45 will be in next month and it starts at 45 grand and tops out at around 55 grand..it has 355hp..he said its prob gonna lease around 700 to 800 a month:thumbsdow...IMHO..anyone who wants this car..should def get the cla45amg..but just wait until you can get a pre- owned one..they'll be on lots for 35 grand within a year and a half lol

I think the Accord trade in - a used car on their lot - will take away sales from the overpriced stuff they sell there :lmao:

So you lost 20% value for trade in. That's quite a hefty depreciation.
But isn't that what they always say - drive a new car off the lot and it loses 20% of its value?

Enjoy your car, dude. What are you going to do with your CyberGuy illuminated sills? Maybe you can sell it here, along with your username. :)

What made you trade?

Enjoy the new ride - there are very few things in life as fun as driving off the lot in your brand new car!

I wish I had the dough to do it more often :)

Best of luck, Cyber. I enjoyed following your posts. Especially your build thread. :) Too bad that you put a lot of work into the car and ended up selling it. :)
