Hi, I'm a newbie here. I currently own a 2019 Odyssey EX-L that I love. We purchased it in November 2020 replacing our 2006 Sienna.

The local dealer has offered to buy our 2019 with 54k miles and has quoted us for a 2023. How many of these add ons from the dealer are necessary? For example, our 2019 EX-L already has tinted windows but the dealer has quoted $699 for that. Here's a copy of the quote they gave me.

Welcome aboard!

The tint is ridiculously overpriced for $699 - I paid $200 for mine (all the sides, including the fronts, and rear). Also, charging for nitrogen seems ridiculous - regular air does just fine. You can even get nitrogen for free at Costco.

But, the dealer may not budge on those add-ons if there is a lot of demand for Odysseys.

What prompted your decision to trade-in the 2019 for a 2023?

What's prompting us to consider it is that used car prices are high right now and we will be putting about 16-20xxx on the van every year. They're offering us slightly more than what we paid for it a year and a half ago. We're trying to figure out if it makes financial sense to take them up on it.

Wow 699 for factory tint... I got mine limo tint for 265 Canadian. And 300 for a new windshield.

Save that 699, get it aftermarket at a tint shop. Then use what's left for a small family trip or dinner etc

Wheel locks from online honda ~$70. Takes a minute or 2 for thrm to change a lug nut. I'd suggest checking online pricing for the floor mats and trunk mat and wheel lock. Or better yet, just ask the pricing direct from parts dept.

1. Your insurance is going up because if anything happens they have to payout more.. so that is the first thing you have to keep in mind.
2. They will sell your car for 38 to 42,000 easily... You can check CarGurus for a quick search and try to purchase exactly the same car you currently have first, try to find one without an accident, and see what it cost.
your choice in the end. but make sure you get what you want.. not what the dealer wants to give you.
best of luck with your choice.
