I have an '03 Ody with 79k that needs a tranny. I'm wondering what I can expect if I trade it in a new '11. Has anyone traded in their Ody in similar condition? The KBB "Poor" value is $7,250. Is anyone getting any better?

I just traded in my 2004 EX for a 2011 EX. Lots of problems with the '04 - felt the tranny starting to slip but no error codes yet. I had 79k miles on the car with some dings in body and they initially offered $4500 which I laughed at and walked away. The caught me and offered 6k but I still declined b/c KBB, Edmunds etc had it at least 7k.

A friend suggested carmax b/c they pay well for used cars so I went over there and in 30 min they gave me in offer in writing for 7k for my 2004 that was good for 7 days. I called the dealer and told him I have an offer in writing from carmax for 7k and if he could match we had a deal. We already had a set price for the 2011 from USAA. He finally gave me 7k for the trade-in. So, if you have a carmax near by, go there first and get an appraisal and then have the paper in hand at the dealership.

When I traded my '04 back in '08 i got 9K for it with 104K miles. Also remember that It would probably cost 4k to fix that tranny.

Good luck

went to carmax, got a $5,500 offer, taking it to the dealer tonight. Between that and my USAA quote they are going to love me. (not).
