Hey All, I traded my 2018 Clarity base with 7,107 miles on it for a new 2018 Clarity Touring on Saturday. I was reading the "price paid trend" and noticed the insane pricing some people were getting from the $6,000k incentive from Honda in CA. I went to the dealership because I was curious. The 2019 did not have 0.9% interest so I crossed that off the list... Why did I trade in my Clarity for a new one? 1. My 8 month old Clarity was purchased for 29,800 in 7/18, $32,780 OTD - $9,000 tax incentive/rebates from the government. I paid $23,780. I drove the car for 8 months, put 7,100 miles, had a door ding and some interior scuffles. They gave me $21,500 for the trade in. 2. I paid 29,000 for the 2018 Touring, $31,900 OTD - $9,000 tax incentive/rebates from the government. I paid $22,900. After the trade, the difference in pricing was $1,400 for a higher trim and a brand new car. It was a no brainer for me. I got $8,490 off MSRP + 2 oil changes and a full interior/exterior detail. If I bought another 2018 Clarity Base from the dealer, I actually would've came out $1,900 ahead financially with a new car. Insane right? too bad I sat in the Touring and was sold haha. I bought another MSM, I wanted a White Touring but they only had that as a 2019. The White with Tan Interior with Full leather in the touring is really nice compared to the base model seats. Thanks for Reading!
