I'm going to buy a new EX-L in the next few days to replace our 2006. I know the 2019 MSRP is $150 more than the 2018, no big deal. However, dealers are telling me there is much bigger actual sales price - that the 2019 will cost "a lot" more than the 2018. I know the conventional wisdom is to go with the 2nd year of a new model assuming some of kinks/problems of the first year have been fixed. However, I'm not hearing about any fixes in the 2019, maybe I missed some or am misinformed.
I don't mind paying $200 to $500 more for a 2019 over a 2018 if there's a good reason.
Is there any real pro to get a 2019 over a 2018 EX-L?
Thank you in advance!
