Well, I decided. Out early this morning for car shopping. First planned stop was Precision Honda, Rio Rancho. Started looking at new, 2019 CR-V. With the different option packages, I was looking at the EX model. Just not sure the cost at basically $30k.
Asked the salesman about used cars. Also told him I was also planning to look at a Subaru Outback. Alas, the dealer here had both. I was able to sit in and look at the Outback. Contemplating the used car, I was this was more in my budget. There was a low mileage 2019 CR-V (used as a dealer loaner), but was the LT version missing some featured I want. The low mileage EX models. Settled on a little more car than I was planning on, but could not pass the deal.
Buying a 2015 Honda CR-V EX-L with 9812 original miles. Always serviced at the dealership. Per-approved for the loan with my bank and paperwork for insurance ready. Finally a late lunch at Chili's Guess I have had a busy and productive day.
Not totally excited about the color, but could not pass up the vehicle with its options, mileage, and price.
